John’s Witness: The True Light

There was a (A)man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a (B)witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might (C)believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that (D)Light. (E)That[a] was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and (F)the world did not know Him. 11 (G)He came to His [b]own, and His [c]own did not receive Him. 12 But (H)as many as received Him, to them He gave the [d]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 (I)who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Word Becomes Flesh

14 (J)And the Word (K)became (L)flesh and dwelt among us, and (M)we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, (N)full of grace and truth.
