          DASV: John 1    

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him nothing was made
that had been made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not
overcome it.
6 A man came, sent from God, whose name was John.
7 He came as a witness, to testify concerning the light, so that
all might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but came to testify concerning the light,
9 the true light, which gives light to everyone, coming into
the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, yet the
world did not know him.
11 He came unto his own things, and even his own people did not
receive him.
12 But as many as received him, to those who believe on his name,
he gave the right to become children of God.
13 They were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh,
or of the will of man, but of God.
14 The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. We have seen his
glory, glory as of the one and only son from the Father,
full of grace and truth.

15 John testified about him, shouting, "This is the one of whom I
said, 'He who comes after me is greater than I, for he existed
before me.'"
16 For from his fullness we all have received, one gracious
benefit after another.
17 For the law was given through Moses; but grace and truth came
through Jesus Christ.
18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only God, who is
near to the Father’s heart, he has made him known.

19 This was John’s testimony, when the Jews sent priests and
Levites to him from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?”
20 He confessed, and did not deny it, but openly confessed,
"I am not the Christ."
21 They asked him, "Who are you then? Are you Elijah?" He replied,
"I am not." "Are you the prophet?" He answered, "No."
22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? So that we can give an
answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"
23 He said, "I am the voice of one shouting in the wilderness,
'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as Isaiah the prophet said."
24 Those who were sent were from the Pharisees.
25 Then they asked John, "Why then do you baptize, if you are
not the Christ, Elijah, or the prophet?"
26 John answered them, "I baptize with water, but among you stands
one whom you do not know,
27 he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not
worthy to untie."
28 These things were done in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan
River, where John was baptizing.

29 On the next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Look,
the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
30 This is the one of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who
is greater than I, for he existed before me.'
31 I did not know him. This is the reason I came baptizing with
water so that he would be revealed to Israel."
32 Then John testified, "I saw the Spirit descending as a dove
out of heaven; and it remained on him.
33 I did not know him but he who sent me to baptize with water,
said to me, 'Upon whomever you see the Spirit descending,
and remaining on him, this one is he who baptizes with the
Holy Spirit.'
34 I have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God."

35 Again on the next day John was standing with two of his
36 While looking at Jesus as he walked by, John said, "Look,
the Lamb of God!"
37 After his two disciples heard him speak, they followed Jesus.
38 Jesus turned, and saw them following; he asked them, "What
do you want?" They replied, "Rabbi (which is translated Teacher),
where are you staying?"
39 He said to them, "Come, and see." So they came and saw where
he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was
about four o’clock in the afternoon.

40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41 He first found his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have
found the Messiah" (which is translated Christ).
42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "You
are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas (which
is translated Peter)."

43 On the next day he wanted to go into Galilee, and he found
Philip. Jesus said to him, "Follow me."
44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found
him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets wrote, Jesus
of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
46 Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of
Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
47 Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, and said concerning him,
"Look, a true Israelite, in whom there is no deceit!"
48 Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus
answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were
under the fig tree, I saw you."
49 Nathanael responded, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God.
You are the King of Israel."
50 Jesus said to him, "Because I said I saw you under the
fig tree, you believe? You will see greater things than
51 He said to him, "Surely I tell you the truth, you will
see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending
and descending upon the Son of Man."
