1 In the beginning was the Word, & 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 men.

5 And the light shineth in darknesse, and the darknesse comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was Iohn.

7 The same came for a witnesse, to beare witnesse of the light, that all men through him might beleeue.

8 Hee was not that light, but was sent to beare witnesse of that light.

9 That was the true light, which lighteth euery man that commeth into the world.

10 Hee was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 Hee came vnto his owne, and his owne receiued him not.

12 But as many as receiued him, to them gaue hee power to become the sonnes of God, euen to them that beleeue on his Name:

13 Which were borne, 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 vs (& we beheld his glory, the glory as of the onely begotten of the Father) full of grace and trueth.

15 Iohn bare witnesse of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that commeth after me, is preferred before me, for he was before me.

16 And of his fulnesse haue all wee receiued, and grace for grace.

17 For the Law was giuen by Moses, but grace and trueth came by Iesus Christ.

18 No man hath seene God at any time: the onely begotten Sonne, which is in the bosome of the Father, he hath declared him.

19 And this is the record of Iohn, when the Iewes sent Priests and Leuites from Hierusalem, to aske 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 hee answered, No.

22 Then said they vnto him, Who art thou, that we may giue an answere to them that sent vs? What sayest thou of thy selfe?

23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wildernesse: Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the Prophet Esaias.

24 And they which were sent, were of the Pharises.

25 And they asked him, and said vnto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that Prophet?

26 Iohn answered them, saying, I baptize with water, but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not,

27 He it is, who comming after me, is preferred before me, whose shoes latchet I am not worthy to vnloose.

28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Iordane, where Iohn was baptizing.

29 The next day, Iohn seeth Iesus comming vnto him, and saith, Behold the Lambe of God, which taketh away the sinne of the world.

30 This is he of whom I said, After me commeth 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, therfore am I come baptizing with water.

32 And Iohn bare record saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heauen, like a Doue, and it abode vpon him.

33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said vnto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, & remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the holy Ghost.

34 And I saw, and bare record, that this is the sonne of God.

35 Againe the next day after, Iohn stood, and two of his disciples.

36 And looking vpon Iesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lambe of God.

37 And the two disciples heard him speake, and they followed Iesus.

38 Then Iesus turned, and saw them following, and saith vnto them, What seeke ye? They said vnto him, Rabbi, (which is to say being interpreted, Master) where dwellest thou?

39 He saith vnto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth houre.

40 One of the two which heard Iohn speake, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peters brother.

41 He first findeth his owne brother Simon, and saith vnto him, We haue found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

42 And he brought him to Iesus. And when Iesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the sonne of Iona, thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, a stone.

43 The day following, Iesus would goe foorth into Galilee, & findeth Philip, & saith vnto him, Follow me.

44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the citie of Andrew and Peter.

45 Philip findeth Nathaneel, and saith vnto him, We haue found him of whom Moses in the Law, and the Prophets did write, Iesus of Nazareth the sonne of Ioseph.

46 And Nathaneel said vnto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith vnto him, Come and see.

47 Iesus saw Nathaneel comming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed in whom is no guile.

48 Nathaneel sayeth vnto him, Whence knowest thou me? Iesus answered, and said vnto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast vnder the figge tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathaneel answered, and saith vnto him, Rabbi, thou art the Sonne of God, thou art the king of Israel.

50 Iesus answered, and said vnto him, Because I said vnto thee, I saw thee vnder the figge tree, beleeuest thou? thou shalt see greater things then these.

51 And hee saith vnto him, Uerily, verily I say vnto you, heereafter yee shall see heauen open, and the Angels of God ascending, and descending vpon the sonne of man.

Georgia's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/30/2014, 5:23pm...

It help me to understand more about the word of GOD now though read JOHN I know now we must be baptized so that we can be born again an to wash way all of our sin


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/28/2014, 7:22am...

Part 4 Peter was the key apostle. He denied Christ, you know the story. He did not have the power to stand when adversity came his way. His flesh got in the way and he became weak. It was not until he was filled with the Holy Ghost that he was able to stand boldly on the day of Pentecost and declare who Jesus Christ was. This is why he gave them the answer Acts 2 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord, and Christ . We can talk about the oneness of God all day. However, it is important that you get saved if you are not saved. Stay saved if you are saved. Hope and pray that you make it into Heaven. This is why you must do as Acts 2 38 tell us in order to be saved. Please read over in Acts 2 where I made extensive comments on this subject.

Part 3 In Ephesians 4 5 it reads as this One Lord, one faith, one baptism . On the day of Pentecost Peter declared who Jesus was when he answered their question Acts 2 36. In Matthew 4 7 Jesus acknowledged who he was in the wilderness when Satan came and tempted him. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord they God . One of the reasons why the Jews rejected Christ is that He declared that he was God. This is why the Jews got so angry with Jesus when he made the statement to them that he was the I AM . In John 8 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am . In the Old Testament, Jesus in his spirit for, God, told Moses that His name was I AM Exodus 3 14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. When Jesus made the statement that he was the I AM, the Jews got angry because he claimed he was God. He was declaring His divinity right then. He was letting them know who he was. They took up stones to stone him but he hid himself. John 8 59 Then took they up stones to cast at him but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by .


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/28/2014, 7:20am...

Part 2 In John 14 8 to 10, Jesus acknowledges he is the Father. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you and yet has thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works . The flesh is a house in which the spirit and soul resides. In 11 Corinthians 5 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation .


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/28/2014, 7:19am...

Hello Mark, I do not know if my responses will be printed because of length, however this is Part 1of 4 You stated that before John 16 29 30 that the disciples did not say that Jesus was God. Part 1 I have to go right back to Chapter 1. I believe that John wrote this book. Verse 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . Verse 3 All things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made . In Genesis Chapter 1 1 it states In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth . In John Chapter 1 verse 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not . Who was in the world? Who walked among men? The answer is Jesus Christ. The world was made by him. Who did not know him? The Jews, his own people first then the rest of the world. In Verse 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us .. Who was made flesh? The answer is Jesus Christ. What does it say in verse 1 the Word was God .


Mark's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/26/2014, 11:52pm...

Notice that in John chapter 16 verse 29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Notice in John chapter 16 verse 30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. NOTICE THAT THE DISCIPLES ACKNOWLEDGED THAT JESUS CAME FORTH FROM GOD. THEY DID NOT AT THAT TIME CLAIM THAT HE WAS GOD.


Mark's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/26/2014, 11:12pm...

John chapter 1 verse 1 explained in detail, John chapter 16 verse 27, For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. THE WORD CAME OUT FROM GOD, John chapter 16 verse 28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. THE WORD CAME FORTH FROM THE FATHER AND WAS MADE FLESH AND COME TO THIS WORLD TO BE OUR SAVIOUR. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH.


Mark's John Chapter 1 comment on 9/26/2014, 10:36pm...

John 8, 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me for I proceeded forth and came from God THAT MAKES IT CLEAR THAT GOD 'S WORD BECAME FLESH AND CAME FROM GOD neither came I of myself, THAT MAKES IT CLEAR THAT JESUS DID NOT SEND HIMSELF but he GOD sent me. JESUS HIMSELF MADE A CLEAR DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE FATHER AND HIMSELF . THE FATHER DID NOT SEND HIMSELF HE SENT JESUS TO BE SALVATION THROUGH THE CROSS . The word came out from GOD john 16, 27 , The word came forth from the FATHER john 16, 28 And the word was made flesh and come into the world john 1, 14 ,
