ULT YHN Chapter 1

YHN 1 ©

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through him, and without him came into being not one thing that has come into being. 4In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

6There was a man—having been sent from God—his name was John. 7He came as a witness in order that he might testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. 8That one was not the light, but came so that he might testify about the light. 9The true light, which gives light to all men, was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world came into being through him, and the world did not know him. 11He came to his own, and his own did not receive him. 12But as many as received him, he gave to them the authority to become children of God, to the ones believing in his name, 13the ones not born from bloods, nor from the will of the flesh, nor from the will of a man, but from God. 14And the Word became flesh and dwelled among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of the One and Only from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15John testifies about him and has cried out, saying, “This was the one of whom I said, ‘The one coming after me has become greater than me, for he was before me.’” 16For from his fullness we have all received even grace after grace. 17For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ. 18No one has seen God at any time. The One and Only God, the one being in the bosom of the Father, that one has made him known.

19And this is the testimony of John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they might ask him, “Who are you?” 20And he confessed—and he did not deny, but confessed—“I am not the Christ.” 21And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” And he says, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” 22Then they said to him, “Who are you, so that we might give an answer to the ones having sent us? What do you say about yourself?” 23He said,

“I am a voice, crying out in the wilderness:

‘Make the way of the Lord straight,’

just as Isaiah the prophet said.” 24And the ones that had been sent were from the Pharisees, 25and they asked him and said to him, “Why do you baptize then if you are not the Christ nor Elijah nor the Prophet?” 26John answered them, saying, “I baptize in water. In the midst of you stands one you do not know, 27the one coming after me, of whom I am not worthy that I might untie the strap of his sandal.” 28These things came about in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29The next day he sees Jesus coming to him and says, “Behold, the Lamb of God, the one taking away the sin of the world! 30This is he concerning whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who has become greater than me, for he was before me.’ 31And I did not know him, but so that he might be revealed to Israel, because of this, I came baptizing in water.” 32And John testified, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending like a dove from heaven, and it remained upon him. 33And I did not recognize him, but the one having sent me to baptize in water, that one said to me, ‘Upon whomever you might see the Spirit descending and remaining on him, he is the one baptizing in the Holy Spirit.’ 34And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God.”

35The next day, John was standing again with two of his disciples, 36and having seen Jesus walking by, he says, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” 37And his two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38But Jesus, having turned and having seen them following, says to them, “What do you seek?” And they said to him, “Rabbi (which being translated means Teacher), where are you staying?” 39He says to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he is staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about the tenth hour. 40One of the two having heard from John and having followed him was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter. 41This one first finds his own brother Simon and says to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated “Christ”). 42He brought him to Jesus. Jesus, having looked at him, said, “You are Simon, the son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which is translated “Peter”).

43The next day Jesus wanted to go away to Galilee, and he finds Philip and says to him, “Follow me.” 44Now Philip was from Bethsaida, from the city of Andrew and Peter. 45Philip finds Nathaniel and says to him, “We have found the one whom Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets—Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.” 46And Nathaniel said to him, “Is any good thing able to be from Nazareth?” Philip says to him, “Come and see.” 47Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him and says about him, “Behold, a true Israelite, in whom is no deceit!” 48Nathaniel says to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, being under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49Nathaniel replied to him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are King of Israel!” 50Jesus replied and said to him, “Because I said to you that I saw you underneath the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51And he says to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
