John

étoile verte The Word of Life

In the beginning was the Word , and the Word was with God , and the Word was God . He was with God in the beginning . green star Through him all things were made ; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life , and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. There came a man who was sent from God ; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light ; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. He was in the world , and though the world was made through him , the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own , but his own did not receive him. ( NIV ) gold star red star yellow star gold star aqua star violet star red star

Yet to all who received him , to those who believed in his name , he gave the right to become children of God - children born not of natural descent , nor of human decision or a husband 's will , but born of God . The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and the Only , who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John testifies concerning him. He cries out , saying , “ This was he of whom I said , ' He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me . ' ” From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. For the Law was given through Moses ; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ . No one has ever seen God , but God the One and Only , who is at Father's side , has made him known . ( NIV ) violet star violet star yellow star gold star red star red star orange star orange star
