1In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was in relation to God, and the Logos was God.
2It was he who at the first stood in relation to God.
3All things were made through him, and without him was made not a single thing that has been made.
4In him was life, and the life was the light,
5And the light illuminates in the dark, and the darkness overtook it not.
