TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:13 a birth that comes from God: People can escape the darkness only by God’s grace (8:12; 12:35-36, 44-46).

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

The Word

John raises the curtain on his Gospel with a stunning description of Jesus Christ as “the Word” (Greek logos, John 1:1). Both Greek and Jewish listeners in the first century would immediately recognize the profound meaning of this title. Greeks would have thought of the seminal forces that sustain the universe. Jewish minds would have thought back to God creating the world with his word (Gen 1:3-28; Ps 33:6, 9). In Jesus’ day, the Word of God had taken on creative personal attributes. Jews viewed God’s Word as personifying divine Wisdom. Through Wisdom, God extended himself into the cosmos, creating the world (Prov 8:22-31).

John makes it clear that Jesus shares the same essence as God; the Son existed before time, and he was the agent of all creation. John anchors the divinity of Jesus in this ancient Jewish concept of Wisdom. The divine Wisdom that has existed with God from before time can now be known in Jesus Christ. In perhaps the most striking verse penned by an apostle, John writes that this Logos, this Wisdom, became flesh and lived among us as a human (John 1:14). What God is, the Logos is, and the Logos is Jesus Christ.

UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

οἳ

who

Here the ones here refers to the children of God mentioned in the previous verse. If it would be misunderstood for your readers, you could state this explicitly, as in the UST.

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

οἳ οὐκ ἐξ αἱμάτων & ἐγεννήθησαν

who neither of bloods & /were/_born

John uses born to describe God changing a person from being spiritually dead to being spiritually alive when they believe in Jesus. John recorded Jesus referring to this change as being “born again” in 3:3. (See: bornagain) If it would be helpful in your language, you could use an expression that indicates spiritual rebirth rather than physical birth. Alternate translation: “These were born spiritually, not from blood”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

οὐκ ἐξ αἱμάτων & ἐγεννήθησαν

neither of bloods & /were/_born

Here, bloods refers to the bloodlines or genetic contributions of both parents of a child. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “were not born from human bloodlines” or “were not born from human decent”

ἐξ

of

Here, from could refer to any of the following: (1) the means by which God’s children are born. Alternate translation, as in the UST: “by” (2) the source from which God’s children are born.

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / ellipsis

οὐδὲ ἐκ θελήματος σαρκὸς

nor of will ˱of˲_flesh

John is leaving out some of the words that this phrase would need in many languages in order to be complete. If it would be helpful in your language, you could supply these words from earlier in the sentence. Alternate translation: “nor were they born from the will of the flesh”

ἐκ

of

Here, from could refer to any of the following: (1) the means by which God’s children are born. Alternate translation, as in the UST: “by” (2) the source from which God’s children are born.

Note 5 topic: figures-of-speech / metonymy

ἐκ θελήματος σαρκὸς

of will ˱of˲_flesh

Here John is using the term flesh to refer to a human being, which is made of flesh. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “from the human will”

οὐδὲ ἐκ θελήματος ἀνδρὸς

nor of will nor of will ˱of˲_man

John is leaving out some of the words that this phrase would need in many languages in order to be complete. If it would be helpful in your language, you could supply these words from earlier in the sentence. Alternate translation: “nor were they born from the will of man”

(Occurrence 2) ἐκ θελήματος ἀνδρὸς

The term a man used here refers specifically to an adult male person and may also be translated “husband.” In this verse it refers to a father’s desire to have a child like himself. Alternate translation: “from the will of a husband”

Note 7 topic: figures-of-speech / ellipsis

ἀλλ’ ἐκ Θεοῦ

but of God

of

Here, from could refer to any of the following: (1) the means by which God’s children are born. Alternate translation, as in the UST: “by” (2) the source from which God’s children are born.
