King James Version

John 1

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;

27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Knijga O Kristu

Evanđelje po Ivanu 1

U početku je postojao On koji bijaše Riječ. On je bio s Bogom i bio je Bog.

U početku je bio kod Boga.

Stvorio je sve što postoji. Ne postoji ništa što nije On stvorio.

U njemu bijaše Život i taj je Život svjetlo ljudima.

To svjetlo prodire kroz tamu i tama ga nikada ne može ugasiti.

Bog je poslao Ivana Krstitelja

da svima govori o svjetlu kako bi svatko mogao povjerovati na temelju njegova svjedočanstva.

Sam Ivan nije bio svjetlo; on je bio tek svjedok koji je trebao govoriti o svjetlu.

Onaj koji je istinito svjetlo što prosvjetljuje svakog čovjeka došao je na svijet.

10 Iako je stvorio svijet, kad je došao, svijet ga nije prepoznao.

11 Nisu ga prihvatili ni u njegovoj vlastitoj zemlji, u vlastitom narodu.

12 Ali svima onima koji su povjerovali u njega i prihvatili ga dao je pravo da postanu Božjom djecom jer su se pouzdali u njegovo ime da ih spasi.

13 Svi koji povjeruju u njega ponovno se rađaju, ali ne tjelesnim rođenjem koje dolazi od ljudske strasti ili od čovjekove volje, nego od Boga.

14 Tako je On, koji bijaše Riječ, postao čovjekom i živio je ovdje na zemlji, među nama. Bio je pun milosti i istine. A mi smo vidjeli njegovu slavu, slavu Očeva Sina jedinca.

15 Ivan je za njega svjedočio vičući: 'To je onaj za kojega sam vam govorio: Dolazi za mnom netko mnogo veći od mene jer je postojao davno prije mene.'

16 Svi smo primali od njegove punine, milost za milošću.

17 Mojsije je donio Zakon, dok su po Kristu došle istina i milost.

18 Boga, zapravo, nitko nikad nije vidio osim njegova jedinorođenoga Sina - Boga - jer je on iz Očevih njedara i govorio nam je o Ocu.

Svjedočanstvo Ivana Krstitelja

19 Ovo je Ivanovo svjedočanstvo: židovi poslaše svećenike i njihove pomoćnike iz Jeruzalema da upitaju Ivana tko je on.

20 On je otvoreno priznao: 'Ja nisam Krist.'

21 'A tko si onda?' pitali su ga. 'Jesi li Ilija?''Nisam

22 'Pa tko si onda? Reci nam da možemo odgovoriti onima koji su nas poslali. Što imaš reći o sebi?'

23 On im odgovori:
    'Ja sam glas koji viče iz gole pustinje:
    "Pripravite se za dolazak Gospodnji!' kako je prorokovao Izaija.'

24 Izaslanici bijahu farizeji.

25 Upitaju ga: 'Ako nisi Krist, ni Ilija, ni Prorok, odakle ti pravo da krstiš?'

26 'Ja krstim samo vodom

27 On će uskoro započeti svoju službu među vama, a ja mu nisam dostojan ni robom biti.'[a]

28 To se dogodilo u Betaniji, s one strane Jordana na kojoj je Ivan krstio narod.

Isus, Jaganjac Božji

29 Sutradan Ivan ugleda Isusa kako mu prilazi, pa reče: 'Pogledajte! Evo Jaganjca Božjega koji odnosi grijeh svijeta!

30 Ovo je taj za kojega sam rekao: "Uskoro dolazi čovjek koji je mnogo veći od mene jer je postojao i prije mene.'

31 Nisam znao da je on taj, ali ovdje sam i krstim vodom zato da bih ga objavio izraelskom narodu.'

32 Zatim Ivan posvjedoči: 'Vidio sam Svetog Duha gdje silazi u obliku goluba i ostaje na njemu.

33 Nisam znao da je on taj

34 Vidio sam da se to dogodilo ovomu čovjeku i zato svjedočim da je on Božji Sin.'[b]

Prvi učenici

35 Sutradan je Ivan stajao s dvojicom svojih učenika,

36 a Isus je onuda prolazio. Ivan ga ugleda i reče: 'Pogledajte! Evo Jaganjca Božjega!'

37 Kad su to čula dvojica njegovih učenika, okrenu se i pođu za Isusom.

38 Isus se okrene i spazi ih kako ga slijede. 'Što hoćete?' upita ih.'Rabbi (to znači: Učitelju), gdje stanuješ?' odgovore oni pitanjem.

39 'Dođite i vidjet ćete

40 Jedan od dvojice koji su čuli što je Ivan rekao i pošli za Isusom bio je Andrija, brat Šimuna Petra.

41 Andrija najprije ode potražiti brata i kaza mu: 'Našli smo Mesiju (to znači: Krista)!'

42 I dovede Petra da upozna Isusa. Isus ga pomnjivo pogleda i reče mu: 'Ti si Šimun, Ivanov sin, ali zvat ćeš se Kefa (to znači: Petar[c])!'

43 Sutradan Isus odluči poći u Galileju. Susretne Filipa i reče mu: 'Pođi za mnom!'

44 Filip bijaše iz Betsaide, iz Petrova i Andrijina rodnoga grada.

45 Filip pak potraži Natanaela i reče mu: 'Našli smo Mesiju, onoga o kojemu su pisali Mojsije i Proroci. To je Isus, Josipov sin, iz Nazareta.'

46 'Iz Nazareta!' poviče Natanael. 'Može li odande doći što dobro?' 'Samo dođi i uvjeri se

47 Dok su se približavali, Isus ga ugleda i reče: 'Evo poštenoga čovjeka, pravog Izraelca.'

48 'Otkud znaš kakav sam?' upita Natanael.Isus mu odgovori: 'Vidio sam te pod smokvom prije nego te je Filip našao.'

49 Nato mu Natanael odgovori: 'Učitelju, ti si Božji Sin! Ti si kralj Izraela!'

50 'Zar vjeruješ samo zato što sam ti rekao da sam te vidio pod smokvom?' upita Isus. 'Vidjet ćeš i više od toga.

51 Gledat ćete, zaista vam kažem, kako se otvara nebo i kako anđeli Božji uzlaze i silaze nad Sinom Čovječjim.'[d]
