John 1:1-14 MIT
1 In the beginning the word intrinsic to God, identifying God, was active.
2 This word, expressed in the beginning, belonged to God.
3 Through his word all creation originated; not one existing component was created apart from his word.
4 Life inhered in the word, and life was humanity's light.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and darkness did not put it out.
6 A man commissioned by God came on the scene; his name was John.
7 His role was to advocate the light by his testimony, that through the light everyone might believe.
8 Not that light himself, John came to authenticate the light.
9 This true light that enlightens all humanity was arriving in the world.
10 Light was in the world—the world that originated through it, yet the world did not recognize him.
11 He came into his own possessions, and his own people did not accept him.
12 But to all those who did receive him, those believing in his name, he gave the right to become God's children.
13 They were fathered neither by blood lines, nor by biological drives, nor by a husband's insistence, but by God.
14 The word originated a human being, who made his home among us. We had a good look at his glory—glory as of an only son representing his father, glory permeated with grace and truth.
