  • In the beginning the Word already existedThe Word was with God, and the Word was God.

  • From the very beginning the Word was with GodThrough Him God made all things; Not one thing in  

  • all creation was made without Him. The  Word was the source of life, and this life  

  • brought light to people. The light shines in the  darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.

  • God sent his messenger, a man named John,  

  • who came to tell people about the light, so  that all should hear the message and believe.  

  • He himself was not the lighthe came to tell about the light.  

  • This was the real light - the light that  comes into the world and shines on all people.

  • The Word was in the world, and though  God made the world through him,  

  • yet the world did not recognize him.

  • He came to his own country, but  his own people did not receive him.

  • Some, however, did receive him and  believed in him; so he gave them the right  

  • to become God's children. They did not  become God's children by natural means,  

  • that is, by being born as the children ofhuman Father; God himself was their Father.

  • The Word became a human being

  • and, full of grace and truth, lived among us.

  • We saw his glory the glory which he  received as the father's only Son.  

  • John spoke about him. "This is the one I was  talking about when I said, "He comes after me,

  • But he is greater than I am, because  he existed before i was born." '

  • Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed  us all, giving us one blessing after another.  

  • God gave the law through Moses, but  grace and truth came through Jesus Christ

  • No one has ever seen God. The only Son, who is  the same as God and is at the father's side,  

  • he has made him known

  • The Jewish authorities in Jerusalem  sent some priests and Levites to John.  

  • "Who are you?" John did not refuse to  answer, but spoke out openly and clearly.

  • "I am not the messiah." "Who  are you then?" "Are you Elijah?"  

  • "No i'm not." "Are you the Prophet." "No."  "Then tell us who you are." "We have to  

  • take an answer back to those who sent  us." "What do you say about yourself?"

  • John answered by quoting the prophet Isaiah: "I  am the voice of someone shouting in the desert:  

  • Make a straight path for the lord to travel!"

  • The messengers, who had been sent  by the Pharisees, then asked John,  

  • "If you're not the Messiah nor Elijah  nor the Prophet, why do you baptize?"

  • I baptize with water,

  • but among you stands the one you do not knowHe is coming after me, but I'm not good enough  

  • even to untie his sandals."

  • All this happened in Bethany on the east side  of the Jordan river, where John was baptizing.  

  • The next day John saw Jesus coming to him.

  • "There is the Lamb of God, who  takes away the sin of the world!

  • This is the one I was talking about  when I said, "A man is coming after me,  

  • but he is greater than I am, because  he existed before i was born.'

  • i did not know who he would be

  • but i came baptizing with water in order  to make him known to the people of israel  

  • and john gave this testimony i saw the spirit  come down like a dove from heaven and stay on him

  • i still did not know that he was the one but God  who sent me to baptize with water had said to me  

  • you will see the spirit  come down and stay on a man  

  • he is the one who baptizes with the holy spirit

  • i have seen it and i tell  you that he is the son of God

  • the next day john was standing there again with  two of his disciples when he saw Jesus walking by  

  • there's the lamb of God the two disciples  heard him say this and went with Jesus

  • jesus turned saw them following him

  • what are you looking for um where do you  live rabbi rabbi this word means teacher

  • come and see

  • it was then about four o'clock in the afternoon  so they went with him and saw where he lived  

  • and spent the rest of that day with him

  • one of them was andrew simon peter's brother

  • and once he found his brother

  • we have found the messiah this word means christ

  • then he took simon to jesus

  • jesus looked at him

  • your name is simon son of john

  • but you will be called cephas

  • this is the same as peter and means a rock

  • the next day jesus decided to go to galilee

  • he found phillip

  • and said to him come with me philip was from  bethsaida the town where andrew and peter lived

  • philip found nathanael

  • we have found the one who moses wrote about in the  book of the law and whom the prophets also wrote  

  • about he is jesus son of joseph from nazareth  can anything good come from nazareth come and see

  • when jesus saw nathanael  coming to him he said about him  

  • here is a real israelite  there is nothing false in him

  • how do you know me i saw you when you were  under the fig tree before philip called you

  • i know

  • teacher

  • you are the son of God

  • you are the king of Israel do you believe just  because i told you i saw you when you were  

  • under the victory you will see much greater  things than this i am telling you the truth  

  • you will see heaven open and God's angels  going up and coming down on the Son of man

  • Days later there was a wedding  in the town of Cana in Galilee

  • jesus mother was there and jesus and his  disciples have also been invited to the wedding

  • when the wine had given out jesus mother  said to him they are out of wine madam

  • what do you have to do with this

  • my time has not yet come

  • do whatever he tells you

  • the jews have rules about ritual washing  and for this purpose six stone water jars  

  • were there each one large enough  to hold between 20 and 30 gallons

  • fill these jars with water

  • they filled them to the brim now draw some water  out and take it to the mana chart of the feast

  • they took him the water which now  had turned into wine and he tasted it

  • he did not know where this wine  had come from but of course  

  • the servants who had drawn out the  water knew so he called the bridegroom

  • everyone else serves the best wine first  and after the guests have drunk a lot  

  • he served the ordinary wine but you  have kept the best wine until now

  • jesus performed this first  miracle in cana in galilee  

  • there he revealed his glory and his  disciples believed in him after this  

  • jesus and his mother brothers and disciples  went to capernaum and stayed there a few days

  • it was almost time for the passover  festival so jesus went to jerusalem

  • bye

  • there in the temple he found people selling cattle  

  • sheep and pigeons and also the money  changers sitting at their table

  • so he made a whip from cords and drove  all the animals out of the temple  

  • both the sheep and the cattle

  • he overturned the tables of the money  changers and scattered their coins  

  • he ordered those who sold pigeons

  • stop making my father's house a marketplace

  • his disciples remember that  the scripture says my devotion  

  • to your house oh God burns in me like a fire

  • the jewish authorities came back at him withquestion what miracle can you perform to show us  

  • that you have the right to do this tear down this  temple and in three days i will build it again  

  • are you going to build it again in three days  it has taken 46 years to build this temple  

  • but the temple jesus was  speaking about was his body

  • so when he was raised from  death his disciples remember  

  • that he had said this and they believed  the scripture and what jesus had

  • said while jesus was in jerusalem during the  passover festival many believed in him as they saw  

  • the miracles he performed but jesus did not trust  himself to them because he knew them all there  

  • was no need for anyone to tell him about them  because he himself knew what was in their hearts

  • there was a jewish leader named nicodemus  who belonged to the party of the pharisees  

  • one night he went to Jesus

  • rabbi we know that you are a teacher sent by God  no one could perform the miracles you are doing  

  • unless God were with him  i am telling you the truth

  • no one can see the kingdom of God without being  born again how can a grown man be born again he  

  • certainly cannot enter his mother's womb and be  born a second time i am telling you the truth

  • no one can enter the kingdom of God  without being born of water in the spirit  

  • a person is born physically of human parents  but is born spiritually of the spirit

  • do not be surprised because i tell  you that you must all be born again

  • the wind blows wherever it wishes  

  • you hear the sound it makes but you do not  know where it comes from or where it is going  

  • it is like that with everyone who was  born of the spirit how can this be

  • you are a great teacher in  israel and you don't know this

  • i am telling you the truth

  • we speak of what we know  and report what we have seen  

  • yet none of you is willing to accept our message

  • you do not believe me when i tell  you about the things of this world

  • uh will you ever believe me then when  i tell you about the things of heaven  

  • that no one has ever gone up to heaven except  the son of man who came down from heaven

  • as moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in  the desert in the same way the son of man must be  

  • lifted up so that everyone who believes in him may  have eternal life for God loved the world so much  

  • but he gave his only son so that everyone who  believes in him may not die but have eternal life  

  • for God did not send his son  into the world to be its judge  

  • but to be its savior those who believe in the  son are not judged but those who do not believe  

  • have already been judged because they  have not believed in God's only son

  • this is how the judgment works the light has come  into the world but people love the darkness rather  

  • than the light because their deeds are evil those  who do evil things hate the light and will not  

  • come to the light because they do not want their  evil deed to be shown up but those who do what is  

  • true come to the light in order that the light may  show that what they did was in obedience to God

  • after this jesus and his disciples went  to the province of judea where he spent  

  • some time with him and baptized john also  was baptizing in aenon not far from salim  

  • because there was plenty of water in  that place people were going to him  

  • and he was baptizing them this was  before john had been put in prison  

  • some of John's disciples began arguing with  a Jew about the matter of ritual washing  

  • you remember the man who was with you on the  east side of Jordan the one you spoke about  

  • well he is baptizing now and everyone's going to  him no one can have anything unless God gives it  

  • you yourselves are my witnesses that i said i am  not the Messiah but i've been sent ahead of him  

  • the bridegroom is the one to whom the  pride belongs but the bridegroom's friend  

  • who stands by and listens is glad  when he hears the bridegroom's voice  

  • this is how my own happiness is made complete

  • he must become more important well i become less  important he who comes from above is greater than  

  • all he who is from the earth belongs to the earth  and speaks about earthly matters but he who comes  

  • from heaven is above all he tells what he has  seen and heard yet no one accepts his message  

  • but whoever accepts his message  confirms by this that God is truthful
