11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him,
12 though as many as would receive Him − that is, to those who believe in the
His name of Jesus − He has given the right to become the children of God,
13 who are not born of blood, not born by physical urge, not born by the will of man, but are those reborn of God [read: the Word].
14 The Word became
flesh as man and lived for a time among us, so full of grace and truth that we perceived His glory, glory as of the only born of the Father.
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This is He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because He was in all things before me.’ ”
16 And from His abundance we have, every one of us, received grace upon grace.
17 For even though the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 While no one has ever seen God, the only Son by His very closeness to the Father has made Him known.
19 This is the testimony of John, when the leaders of Judea decided to send priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him who he was.
20 He had to confess and did not deny the truth, but avowed, “I am not the Messiah.”

21 They said, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He responded, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, his voice gone, “No.”
22 They continued to ask him, “Who are you, that we may answer those that sent us? What do you say for yourself?”
23 “I am THE VOICE,” he replied, “OF ONE CRYING ALOUD IN THE DESERT, MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD” (Isa. 40:3).
24 A delegation of
the Pharisees was sent, also,
25 And demanded of him, “Why do you baptize, then, if you are not the Messiah or Elijah or the Prophet?”
26 "I baptize in water only," he replied, "but in your midst stands One whom you do not recognize.
27 He who comes after me is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to unlatch."
28 These events occurred in Bethany beyond the river Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming his way and said, "See, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"
30 "This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man ranking ahead of me for He was in all things before me.'
verses 31-40 (done)Edit
31 Even if, at first, I did not recognize Him, my purpose in coming was to baptize in water so that He might be revealed to Israel."
32 John testifying further said, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove and remain on Him;
33 I did not know who He was, but the One who sent me to baptize in water told me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit coming down and resting is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'
34 This I witnessed while coming to the realization that He is the Son of God."
35 Again, the next day, John was standing with two of his disciples.
36 He looked upon Jesus as He walked by and said as before, "See, the Lamb of God!"
37 After hearing this, the two disciples followed Jesus.
38 Then, Jesus turned and seeing that they followed said, "What is your need?" Their reply, a
tentative polite, "Rabbi, (which is to say, Teacher) where are you staying?"
39 He said to them, "Come and see." They went and saw where he stayed and remained there the rest of the day (for it was about four o'clock in the afternoon).
40 One of the two who followed Jesus after John spoke of the Lamb of God was Andrew, the brother of Simon.
verses 41-51 (done)Edit
41 Soon after the meeting with Jesus, Andrew found Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is to say, the Christ);
42 He then brought his brother to Jesus who gazing upon him intently said, "You are Simon, son of Jona: You will be called Kepha," (meaning a rock, being tranalated Peter).
43 The following day Jesus decided to go to Galilee, and found Philip, and said to him, "Follow Me."
44 Now, Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip, in turn, found Nathana-el, and told him, "We have found him, of whom Moses and the Prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
46 Whereupon, Nathana-el said to him, "Can any good
thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip replied, "Come and see."
47 Jesus saw Nathana-el coming and exclaimed, "Look! An Israelite, not in name only, but true."
48 Nathana-el asked, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered, "Even before Philip sought you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
49 Nathana-el said, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
50 Jesus answered saying, "
If Because I said, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,' and you believe: What then? If you should see far greater things.
51 In all truthfulness, I say that, hereafter, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."
