“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be
through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it…
He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own peopledid not accept him…
And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us…”
–John 1:1-5, 10-11, 14
