John   chapter 1

   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
   5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the
  darkness comprehended it not.
   6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was
   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 Light.
   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
  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 the Christ.
  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
  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 Holy
  34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of
  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 Jesus.
  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 tenth hour.
  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 Christ.
  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
  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
  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
  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. John chapter 2
