Christ Comes to the World

1Before the world began, the Word was there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2He was there with God in the beginning.

3Everything was made through him. Nothing in all of God’s creation was made without him.

4In him there was life, and that life was a light for the people of the world.

5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not defeated it.

6There was a man named John, who was sent by God.

7He came to tell people about the light. The goal was for all people to hear about the one who is the light and believe in him.

8John was not the light. But he came to tell people about the light.

9The true light, the one who brings light to all people, was about to make his appearance to the world.

10The Word was already in the world. The world was made through him, but the world did not know him.

11He came to the world that was his own. And his own people did not accept him.

12But some people did accept him. They believed in him, and he gave them the right to become children of God.

13They became God’s children, but not in the way babies are usually born. It was not because of any human desire or plan. They were born from God himself.

14The Word became a man and lived among us. We saw his divine greatness —the greatness that belongs to the only Son of the Father. The Word was full of grace and truth.

15John told people about him. He said loudly, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘The one who is coming after me is greater than I am, because he was living before I was even born.’”

16Yes, the Word was full of grace and truth, and from him we all received one blessing after another.

17That is, the law was given to us through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

18No one has ever seen God. The only Son is the one who has shown us what God is like. He is himself God and is very close to the Father.

John Tells About the Messiah

19The Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent some priests and Levites to John to ask him, “Who are you?” He told them the truth.

20Without any hesitation he said openly and plainly, “I am not the Messiah.”

21They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He answered, “No, I am not Elijah.” They asked, “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No, I am not the Prophet.”

22Then they said, “Who are you? Tell us about yourself. Give us an answer to tell the people who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”

23John told them the words of Isaiah the prophet: “I am the voice of someone shouting in the desert: ‘Make a straight road ready for the Lord.’”

24Some of these Jews were from the Pharisees.

25They said to John, “You say you are not the Messiah. You say you are not Elijah or the Prophet. Then why do you baptize people?”

26John answered, “I baptize people with water. But there is someone here with you that you don’t know.

27He is the one who is coming later. I am not good enough even to be the slave who unties his sandals.”

28These things all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan River. This is where John was baptizing people.

Jesus, the Lamb of God

29The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God. He takes away the sins of the world!

30This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘There is a man coming after me who is greater than I am, because he was living long before I was born.’

31I did not know who he was. But I came baptizing people with water so that the people of Israel could know that he is the Messiah.”

32Then John said this for everyone to hear: “I also did not know who the Messiah was. But the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘You will see the Spirit come down and rest on a man. He is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen this happen. I saw the Spirit come down from heaven like a dove and rest on this man. So this is what I tell people: ‘He is the Son of God.’”



The First Followers of Jesus

35The next day John was there again and had two of his followers with him.

36He saw Jesus walking by and said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37The two followers heard him say this, so they followed Jesus.

38Jesus turned and saw the two men following him. He asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi, where are you staying?” (“Rabbi” means “Teacher.”)

39He answered, “Come with me and you will see.” So the two men went with him and saw the place where he was staying. It was then about four o’clock, and they stayed there with him the rest of that day.

40These men followed Jesus after they had heard about him from John. One of them was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.

41The first thing Andrew did was to go and find his brother Simon. Andrew said to him, “We have found the Messiah.” (“Messiah” means “Christ.”)

42Then Andrew brought Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon, the son of John. You will be called Cephas.” (“Cephas” means “Peter.”)

43The next day Andrew wanted them to go to Galilee to find Philip. When they found him, Jesus said to him, “Follow me.”

44Philip was from the town of Bethsaida, the same as Andrew and Peter.

45Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the man that Moses wrote about in the law. The prophets wrote about him too. He is Jesus, the son of Joseph. He is from Nazareth.”

46But Nathanael said to Philip, “Nazareth! Can anything good come from Nazareth?” Philip answered, “Come and see.”

47Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said, “This man coming is a true Israelite, one you can trust.”

48Nathanael asked, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you when you were under the fig tree, before Philip told you about me.”

49Then Nathanael said, “Teacher, you are the Son of God. You are the King of Israel.”

50Jesus said to him, “Do you believe this just because I said I saw you under the fig tree? You will see much greater things than that!”

51Then he said, “Believe me when I say that you will all see heaven open. You will see ‘angels of God going up and coming down’ on the Son of Man.”
