1 In the beginning was the Word,* and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 Everything was made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and that life was the light of mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness hasn’t overcome† it.
