The fyrst Chapter.
IN the begynnynge
was that worde/ and that worde was with god: and god was thatt worde. The
same was in the begynnynge wyth god. All thynges were made by it/ and with
out it/ was made noo thinge/ that made was. Jn it was lyfe/ And lyfe was
the light of men/ and the light shyneth in darcknes/ and darcknes comprehended
There was a man sent
from god/ whose name was Jhon. The same cam as a witnes/ to beare witnes
of the light/ that all men through him myght beleve. He was nott that light:
but to beare witnes of the light. That was a true light/ which lighteneth
all men that come into the worlde. He was in the worlde/ and the worlde
by him was made: and the worlde knewe hym not.
He cam into his awne/
and his receaved him not. vnto as meny as receaved him/ gave he power to
be the sonnes of god: in that they beleved on his name: which were borne
not of bloude nor of the will of the flesshe/ nor yet of the will of man:
but of god.
And that worde was
made flesshe/ and dwelt amonge vs/ and we sawe the glory off yt/ as the
glory off the only begotten sonne off the father | which worde was full
of grace and verite.
