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.

1 John 1:1-10

The Incarnation of the Word of Life

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make our1:4 Some manuscripts your joy complete.

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness

5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all1:7 Or every sin.

8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
