The Word Became Flesh  Jn.1.1-18

The Testimony of John the Baptist  Jn.1.19-28 c.27ce[ Jn.1.19-28 → ] - Mt.3.1-12, Mk.1.1-8, Lk.3.1-9

19THIS IS THE TESTIMONY which John gave when the Jews of Jerusalem sent a deputation of priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20He confessed without reserve and avowed, 'I am not the Messiah.' 21'What then? Are you Elijah?' 'No', he replied. 'Are you the prophet we await?' He answered 'No.' 22'Then who are you?' they asked. 'We must give an answer to those who sent us. What account do you give of yourself?' 23 [ Is.40.3. ] He answered in the words of the prophet Isaiah: 'I am a voice crying aloud in the wilderness, "Make the Lord's highway straight." '

24Some Pharisees who were in the deputation 25asked him, 'If you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the prophet, why then are you baptizing?' 26'I baptize in water,' John replied, 'but among you, though you do not know him, stands the one 27who is to come after me. I am not good enough to unfasten his shoes.' 28This took place at Bethany beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

The Lamb of God  Jn.1.29-34 (Bethabara-Bethany?)

29The next day he saw Jesus coming towards him. 'Look,' he said, 'there is the Lamb of God; it is he who takes away the sin of the world. 30This is he of whom I spoke when I said, "After me a man is coming who takes rank before me"; for before I was born, he already was. 31I myself did not know who he was; but the very reason why I came, baptizing in water, was that he might be revealed to Israel.'

32John testified further: 'I saw the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and resting upon him. 33I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize in water had told me, "When you see the Spirit coming down upon someone and resting upon him you will know that this is he who is to baptize in Holy Spirit." 34I saw it myself, and I have borne witness. This is God's Chosen One.' Some witnesses read: This is the Son of God.

The First Disciples  Jn.1.35-42 (Bethabara-Bethany?)

35The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples when Jesus passed by. 36John looked towards him and said, 'There is the Lamb of God.' 37The two disciples heard him say this, and followed Jesus. 38When he turned and saw them following him, he asked, 'What are you looking for?' They said, 'Rabbi' (which means a teacher), 'where are you staying?' 'Come and see', he replied. 39So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent the rest of the day with him. It was then about four in the afternoon.

40One of the two who followed Jesus after hearing what John said was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41The first thing he did was to find Some witnesses read: In the morning he found ... his brother Simon. He said to him, 'We have found the Messiah' (which is the Hebrew for 'Christ'). 42He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him, and said, 'You are Simon, son of John. You shall be called Cephas' (that is, Peter, the Rock).

The Calling of Philip and Nathanael  Jn.1.43-51 (Bethabara-Bethany?)

43(43-44)The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He met Philip, who, like Andrew and Peter, came from Bethsaida, and said to him, 'Follow me.' 45Philip went to find Nathanael, and told him, 'We have met the man spoken of by Moses in the Law, and by the prophets: it is Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.' 'Nazareth!' 46Nathanael exclaimed; 'can anything good come from Nazareth?' Philip said, 'Come and see.' 47When Jesus saw Nathanael coming, he said, 'Here is an Israelite worthy of the name; there is nothing false in him.' 48Nathanael asked him, 'How do you come to know me?' Jesus replied, 'I saw you under the fig-tree before Philip spoke to you.' 49'Rabbi,' said Nathanael, 'you are the Son of God; you are king of Israel.' 50so Jesus answered, 'Is this the ground of your faith, that I told you I saw you under the fig-tree? You shall see greater things than that.' 51 [ Dn.7.13. ] Then he added, 'In truth, in very truth I tell you all, you shall see heaven wide open, and God's angels ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.'
