Knijga O Kristu

1 Ivanova 1:1-10

Uvod

1Onaj koji bijaše od početka isti je onaj kojega smo čuli, vidjeli vlastitim očima i dodirnuli vlastitim rukama.1:1 U grčkome: Što bijaše od početka, što smo vidjeli… On je Isus Krist, Riječ života. 2On, koji je Život od Boga, očitovao se i mi smo ga vidjeli. Svjedočimo i navješćujemo vam da je on vječni život. Bio je s Ocem, a zatim nam se očitovao. 3Govorimo vam o tomu što smo osobno vidjeli i čuli da možete imati zajedništvo s nama. A naše je zajedništvo s Ocem i njegovim Sinom Isusom Kristom.

4Pišem vam o tomu da naša radost bude potpuna.

Život u svjetlosti

5Ovu nam je poruku dao Bog da ju prenesemo vama: Bog je svjetlost i u njemu nema nikakve tame. 6Tvrdimo li da smo u zajedništvu s njime, a i dalje živimo u duhovnoj tami, lažemo i ne živimo u istini. 7Ali živimo li u svjetlu Božje nazočnosti, kao što Krist živi, imamo zajedništvo jedni s drugima i krv Isusa Krista, njegova Sina, čisti nas od svakoga grijeha.

8Tvrdimo li da ne griješimo, zavaravamo se i u nama nema istine. 9Ali on je vjeran i pravedan; priznamo li mu svoje grijehe, oprostit će nam i očistiti nas od svake nepravde. 10Tvrdimo li da nismo zgriješili, Boga nazivamo lašcem i pokazujemo da njegova Riječ ne živi u našem srcu.

King James Version

1 John 1:1-10

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
