In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. "The same was in 3 the beginning with God. "All things were made 1 by him; and without him 2 was not anything made that hath been 4 made. "In him was life; and the life was the light of "And the light shineth in the darkness; and the 6 darkness apprehended it not. "There came a man, sent (7) from God, whose name was John. "The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the light, that all 8 might believe through him. "He was not the light, but (9 came that he might bear witness of the light. "There was the true light, even the light which lighteth every man, 10 coming into the world. "He was in the world, and the world was made 1by him, and the world knew him not. "He came unto his own, and they that were his own re(12 ceived him not. "But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, even to them that believe on his name: "which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of (14 man, but of God. "And the Word became flesh, and 'dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of 10 the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth. "John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, Or, was not anything made.

And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, 20 Who art thou? "And he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not the Christ. "And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith, I am not. 22) Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No. "They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of


23 thyself? "He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet. " And they had been sent from the 25) Pharisees. "And they asked him, and said unto him, Why then baptizest thou, if thou art not the Christ, (26) neither Elijah, neither the prophet? "John answered

them, saying, I baptize with water: in the midst of you (27) standeth one whom ye know not, "even he that cometh after me, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to 28 unloose. "These things were done in Bethany beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.



On the morrow he seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God, which taketh away the 30 sin of the world! "This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is become before me: for he was

"And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.


Again on the morrow John was standing, and two of 36) his disciples; "and he looked upon Jesus as he walked, 37 and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God! "And the two dis38 ciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. "And Jesus turned, and beheld them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? And they said unto him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Master), where (39 abidest thou? "He saith unto them, Come, and ye shall

see. They came therefore and saw where he abode; and they abode with him that day it was about the tenth 40 hour. "One of the two that heard John speak, and fol(41)lowed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. "He

findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted, (42 * Christ). "He brought him unto Jesus. Jesus looked upon him, and said, Thou art Simon the son of John: thou shalt be called Cephas (which is by interpretation, 6 Peter).

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: "and Jesus also was bidden, and his disciples, to the marriage. "And when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, 4 They have no wine. "And Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. "His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith (6) unto you, do it. "Now there were six waterpots of stone set there after the Jews' manner of purifying, containing 7 two or three firkins apiece. "Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to 8 the brim. "And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the ruler of the feast. And they bare it.

"This beginning of his signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed on him.


After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and there they abode not many days.

13) And the passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus 14 went up to Jerusalem. "And he found in the temple.

those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the (15 changers of money sitting: "and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and 16) overthrew their tables; "and to them that sold the doves he said, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise. "His disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house shall 18) eat me up. "The Jews therefore answered and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou 19 doest these things? "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this 'temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20) "The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this

therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he spake this; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his signs
