John 1:4-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

through him was life,
    and this life was the light of the human race;
[a]the light shines in the darkness,
    and the darkness has not overcome it.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:5 The ethical dualism of light and darkness is paralleled in intertestamental literature and in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Overcome: “comprehend” is another possible translation, but cf. Jn 12:35; Wis 7:29–30.
