1 John 3:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 3

[a]See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed[b] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure, as he is pure.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:1–3 The greatest sign of God’s love is the gift of his Son (Jn 3:16) that has made Christians true children of God. This relationship is a present reality and also part of the life to come; true knowledge of God will ultimately be gained, and Christians prepare themselves now by virtuous lives in imitation of the Son.
  2. 3:2 When it is revealed: or “when he is revealed” (the subject of the verb could be Christ).
