Whiston(i) 1 IN the beginning was the Word, and 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 And in him was life, and the life is the light of men. 5 And the light appeareth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, his name was John, 7 He came for a witness, to bear witness of the light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not the light, but was to bear witness of the light. 9 He was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God; to them that believe on his name: 13 They were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, not of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and pitched his tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, This was he of whom I spake to you. He that cometh aster me, was made before me: for he was preferred to me. 16 For of his fulness have all we received and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth by Jesus Christ. 18 No one hath Seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him]. 19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to him to ask 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 the prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they unto him, Who are thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us: what sayst thou of thy self? 23 He said I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias 24 And they who were sent, were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not the Christ, nor Elias, neither the prophet? 26 John, answered them, saying I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 27 He it is, who coming after me, was made before me, whose shoes latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done in Bethany (Read: Bethabara) beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man, who is made before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing in water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize in watery he said onto me, Upon whom soever thou shalt see the Spirit descending and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizeth in the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. 35 Again, the next day, John stood, and two of his disciples: 36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, be saith, Behold the Lamb of God. 37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith onto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, which is to say, being interpreted, Master, where dwellest thou? 39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. 40 Now one of the two which heard John, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peters brother. 41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Mesias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonas: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted a Rock. 43 The day following, He would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip; and Jesus saith unto him, Follow me. 44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him of whom Moses did write in the law, and the prophets; Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Josephs. 46 And Nathaniel said unto him, can any good thing be from Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile. 48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and saith unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I law thee. 49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou wilt see a greater thing than these. 51 And he saith unto him, Verily verily I say unto you, Ye shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
