Nádej pre kazdého

Evanjelium Podľa Jána 1

Svetlo svieti v tmách

1 Už od večnosti jestvovalo Slovo, ktoré bolo u Boha, a to Slovo bol Boh sám.

2-3 On, toto Slovo, stvoril všetko, čo jestvuje, a niet ničoho, čo by On nebol stvoril.

On je zdrojom všetkého života a svetlom pre každého človeka.

To svetlo prekonáva temnotu sveta a tá temnota ho nikdy nepohltí.

Boh poslal muža, ktorý sa volal Ján,

aby svedčil ľuďom, že Ježiš je tým pravým svetlom, aby všetci uverili v neho.

Ján sám nebol tým svetlom, jeho poslaním bolo iba upozorniť naň.

Tým pravým svetlom, ktoré žiari každému človeku, bol Ježiš.

10 Prišiel na svet, ktorý vznikol jeho prostredníctvom, ale svet ho nepoznal.

11 Prišiel k ľuďom, ktorých miloval, no tí ho neprijali.

12 Ale všetkým, ktorí ho prijali a uverili v neho, dal právo stať sa Božími deťmi. A všetci tí, ktorí tomu veria, stali sa členmi Božej rodiny

13 nie telesným narodením ani ľudským úsilím, ale Božím pôsobením.

14 Večné Slovo sa stalo človekom, ktorý žil medzi nami tu, na zemi, a bol plný odpúšťajúcej lásky a pravdy. Niektorí z nás videli jeho slávu -- slávu jediného Syna nebeského Otca.

Ján Krstiteľ

15 Ján Krstiteľ vydával o ňom zástupom jasné svedectvo: To je ten, ktorý prichádza po mne, ale je omnoho významnejší a bol dávno predo mnou."

16 Z jeho bohatstva sme všetci prijímali dar za darom.

17 Lebo Mojžiš nám priniesol iba zákon s jeho prísnymi požiadavkami a neľútostnou spravodlivosťou, ale v Ježišovi nám Boh daroval odpúšťajúcu lásku.

18 Boha nikto z ľudí nevidel. Iba jeho jediný Syn, ktorý je stále s ním, nám ho umožnil poznať.

Ján ohlasuje príchod Mesiáša

19 Z Jeruzalema prišli za Jánom Krstiteľom židovskí kňazi a chrámoví služobníci s otázkou, či on je ten očakávaný Mesiáš -- Boží Syn, izraelský kráľ.

20 Nie, nie som Mesiáš," povedal im otvorene.

21 A kto teda si?" spýtali sa ho znova. Si prorok Eliáš?" -- Nie som," odpovedal.

22 Tak povedz, kto si. Musíme o tebe podať správu tým, ktorí nás poslali. Za koho sa pokladáš?"

23 Som iba hlas, ktorý volá na púšti, ako to predpovedal prorok Izaiáš:Pripravte sa na Pánov príchod!"

24 Tí, ktorých poslali farizeji,

25 sa ho spýtali: Ak nie si Mesiáš ani Eliáš, ani prorok, tak akým právom krstíš?"

26 Ján im odpovedal: Ja vás krstím iba vodou, ale uprostred zástupu stojí ten, koho ešte nepoznáte.

27 Jemu nie som hodný ani len rozviazať remienok na obuvi."

Boží Baránok

28 To sa stalo v Betánii, na druhej strane Jordánu, kde Ján krstil.

29 Na druhý deň Ján videl Ježiša, ako ide k nemu, a povedal: Pozrite, Boží Baránok, ktorý na seba berie hriechy celého sveta.

30 Jeho som mal na mysli, keď som vám včera povedal, že za mnou ide omnoho významnejší muž, ktorý bol dávno predo mnou.

31 Keď som bol poverený, aby som krstil a pripravoval izraelský národ na Mesiášov príchod, ešte som nevedel, kto to je.

32 Ale Boh mi povedal:Dávaj pozor! Na koho pri krste zostúpi môj Duch a zostane na ňom, to je ten,

33 ktorý vás bude krstiť Duchom Svätým.

34 Potom som videl, ako sa Boží Duch v podobe holubice znáša z neba na Ježiša. Do tej chvíle som ho nepoznal, ale pretože sa to na ňom vyplnilo, vydávam svedectvo, že je to Boží Syn."

Prví Ježišovi učeníci

35 Na druhý deň stál Ján pri Jordáne s dvoma zo svojich učeníkov.

36 Tu opäť videl Ježiša, ako ide okolo, a zvolal: Pozrite, to je Boží Baránok!"

37 Keď to Jánovi učeníci počuli, pobrali sa za Ježišom.

38 Po chvíli sa Ježiš obrátil a videl, že idú za ním. Spýtal sa ich:

39 Čo by ste chceli?"

Majstre, kde bývaš?" povedali.

40 Poďte a uvidíte!" odpovedal im. Prijali jeho pozvanie a zostali v ten deň uňho. Bolo okolo štvrtej popoludní.

41 Jeden z tých dvoch učeníkov bol Andrej, brat Šimona Petra.

42 Po návšteve u Ježiša vyhľadal svojho brata a povedal mu: Našli sme Mesiáša -- Krista."

43 A priviedol ho k Ježišovi. Ježiš sa naňho zahľadel a povedal: Ty si Šimon, syn Jánov. Odteraz sa budeš volať Peter, to znamená Skala."

Ježiš povoláva Filipa a Natanaela

44 Na druhý deň sa Ježiš rozhodol, že pôjde do Galiley. Stretol tam Filipa a vyzval ho, aby ho nasledoval.

45 Filip, podobne ako Andrej a Peter, pochádzal z Betsaidy.

46 Filip potom vyhľadal Natanaela a povedal mu: Našli sme toho, o ktorom písal Mojžiš a ktorého predpovedali proroci. Volá sa Ježiš a je to Jozefov syn z Nazareta."

47 Môže niečo dobré pochádzať z Nazareta?" zapochyboval Natanael.

Poď a presvedč sa sám!" povedal Filip.

48 Keď Ježiš uvidel Natanaela, vyhlásil: To je pravý Izraelita, v ktorom niet ľsti."

49 Odkiaľ ma poznáš?" spýtal sa prekvapený Natanael.

Videl som ťa pod figovníkom ešte predtým, ako ťa Filip našiel," odpovedal Ježiš.

50 Majstre, ty si Boží Syn a izraelský kráľ!" zvolal Natanael.

51 Ježiš mu na to povedal: Veríš mi preto, lebo som ti povedal, že som ťa videl sedieť pod figovníkom. Uvidíš ešte väčšie veci:

52 otvorené nebo a Božích anjelov, ako vystupujú a zostupujú na mňa, Syna človeka."

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.
