1 In the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing
made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,
that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh
into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the
world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 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:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 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.
15 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.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came
by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son,
which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests
and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith,
I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an
answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou
then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there
standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose
shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where
John was baptizing.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is
preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to
Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending
from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 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
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the
Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed
38 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?
39 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
40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him,
was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him,
We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the
42 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.
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and
findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 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.
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come
out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold
an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
48 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.
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the
Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
50 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.
51 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.
1 And the third
day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother
of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto
him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee?
mine hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto
you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the
manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And
they filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor
of the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was
made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which
drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth
good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is
worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee,
and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother,
and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there
not many days.
13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and
doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them
all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured
out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence;
make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal
of thine house hath eaten me up.
18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest
thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and
in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in
building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples
remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed
the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast
day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which
24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew
25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew
what was in man.
