In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it ... And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth.
