Word was God. The fame was in the

by him, and without him was not any
thing made, that was made, In him
was life, and the life was the light of
men. And the light shineth in darkness,

and the darkness comprehended it not.

witness, to bear witness of the Light, that

nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the word was made flesh, and dwelt

amongst us (and we beheld his glory, the
glory as of the only begotten of the Fa.

was he of whom I fpake; He that com-
eth after me, is preferred before me; for
he was before me. And of his fulness 16.

For the Law was given by Moses, but 17.
grace and truth came by Jefus Christ.
No man hath seen God at any time; the 18.
