He [the Word, Jesus] was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it.
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
[Jesus said] "By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me."
Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."
