The Evangel According to John

Return to Index.

Chapter 1


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Yahweh.


The same was in the beginning with Elohim.


All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made.


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


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


There came a man, sent from Yahweh, whose name was John.


The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the light, that all might believe through him.


He was not the light, but came that he might bear witness of the light.


There was the true light, even the light which lighteth every man, coming into the world.


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


He came unto his own, and they that were his own received him not.


But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of Yahweh, even to them that believe on his name:


who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Yahweh.


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


John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that cometh after me is become before me: for he was before me.


For of his fulness we all received, and grace for grace.


For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Yahshua Ha Mashiyach.


No man hath seen Yahweh at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.


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


And he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not Ha Mashiyach.


And they asked him, What then? Art thou Eliyah? And he saith, I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No.


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


He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of Yahweh, as said Isaiah the prophet.


And they had been sent from the Pharisees.


And they asked him, and said unto him, Why then immerse thou, if thou art not Ha Mashiyach, neither Eliyah, neither the prophet?


John answered them, saying, I immerse in water: in the midst of you standeth one whom ye know not,


even he that cometh after me, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to unloose.


These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was immersing.


On the morrow he seeth Yahshua coming unto him, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of Elohim, that taketh away the sin of the world!


This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man who is become before me: for he was before me.


And I knew him not; but that he should be made manifest to Israel, for this cause came I immersing in water.


And John bare witness, saying, I have beheld the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven; and it abode upon him.


And I knew him not: but he that sent me to immerse in water, he said unto me, Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon him, the same is he that immerse in the Holy Spirit.


And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of Elohim.


Again on the morrow John was standing, and two of his disciples;


and he looked upon Yahshua as he walked, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of Elohim!


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


And Yahshua turned, and beheld them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? And they said unto him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher), where abideth thou?


He saith unto them, Come, and ye shall see. They came therefore and saw where he abode; and they abode with him that day: it was about the tenth hour.


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


He findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found Ha Mashiyach (which is, being interpreted, Mashiyach).


He brought him unto Yahshua. Yahshua looked upon him, and said, Thou art Simon the son of John: thou shalt be called Cephas (which is by interpretation, Peter).


On the morrow he was minded to go forth into Galilee, and he findeth Philip: and Yahshua saith unto him, Follow me.


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


Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, wrote, Yahshua of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.


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


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


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


Nathanael answered him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of Elohim; thou art King of Israel.


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


And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of Elohim ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
