John Chapter 1 (Index)

Chapters: 1





















001  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

002  The same was in the beginning with God.

003  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

004  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

005  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

006  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

007  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

008  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

009  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

010  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

011  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

012  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

013  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

014  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

015  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

016  And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

017  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

018  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

019  And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

020  And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

021  And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

022  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

023  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

024  And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

025  And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

026  John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;

027  He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

028  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

029  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

030  This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

031  And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

032  And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

033  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

034  And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

035  Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

036  And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

037  And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

038  Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

039  He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

040  One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

041  He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

042  And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

043  The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

044  Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

045  Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

046  And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

047  Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

048  Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

049  Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

050  Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

051  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
