Jan 1 1.1 The origin of the good news of Jesus Christ.
1.2 Before everything else was, the Word had been with God, and the Word was God. He created everything else. The life which gives light to mankind was in him, and shines in this world’s darkness which cannot overpower nor comprehend it. God sent John the Baptist, not being the light but to witness only about the light, so that everyone might believe through him. Then the One who is the true light came to fully enlighten everyone in the world.
