The divinity, humanity, and office of Jesus Christ.
John 1:1 In the begynnynge was the worde, and the worde was with God, and God was ye worde. John 1:2 The same was in the begynnynge wt God. John 1:3 All thinges were made by the same, and without the same was made nothinge that was made. John 1:4 In him was the life, and the life was the light of men: John 1:5 and the light shyneth in the darknesse, and the darknesse comprehended it not.
John 1:6 There was sent from God a man, whose name was Ihon. John 1:7 The same came for a witnesse, to beare wytnesse of ye light, that thorow him they all might beleue. John 1:8 He was not that light, but that he might beare witnesse of ye light. John 1:9 That was the true light, which lighteth all men, that come in to this worlde. John 1:10 He was in the worlde, & the worlde was made by him, and ye worlde knewe him not. John 1:11 He came in to his awne, and his awne receaued him not. John 1:12 But as many as receaued him, to them gaue he power to be the children of God: euen soch as beleue in his name. John 1:13 Which are not borne of bloude, ner of the wyl of the flesh, ner of the wyl of man, but of God. John 1:14 And the worde became flesh, and dwelt amonge vs: and we sawe his glory, a glory as of the onely begotte sonne of the father, full of grace and trueth.
The testimony of John.
John 1:15 Ihon bare wytnesse of him, cryed, and sayde: It was this, of whom I spake: After me shal he come, that was before me, For he was or euer I: John 1:16 and of his fulnesse haue all we receaued grace for grace. John 1:17 For the lawe was geuen by Moses, grace and trueth came by Iesus Christ. John 1:18 No man hath sene God at eny tyme. The onely begotte sonne which is in the bosome of the father, he hath declared the same vnto vs.
John 1:19 And this is the recorde of Ihon, whan the Iewes sent prestes and Leuites fro Ierusalem, to axe him: Who art thou? John 1:20 And he confessed and denyed not. And he confessed, and sayde: I am not Christ. John 1:21 And they axed him: What the? Art thou Elias? He sayde: I am not. Art thou the Prophet? And he answered: No. John 1:22 Then sayde they vnto him: What art thou the, yt we maye geue answere vnto the that sent vs? What sayest thou of yi self? John 1:23 He sayde: I am ye voyce of a cryer in the wyldernesse. Make straight ye waye of the LORDE. As ye prophet Esay sayde: John 1:24 And they that were sent, were of ye Pharises. John 1:25 And they axed him, & sayde vnto him: Why baptysest thou then, yf thou be not Christ, ner Elias, ner a prophet? John 1:26 Ihon answered them, and sayde: I baptyse with water, but there is one come in amonge you, whom ye knowe not. John 1:27 It is he that cometh after me, which was before me: whose shue lachet I am not worthy to vnlowse. John 1:28 This was done at Bethabara beyonde Iordane, where Ihon dyd baptyse.
John 1:29 The nexte daye after, Ihon sawe Iesus commynge vnto him, and sayde: Beholde the labe of God, which taketh awaye the synne of the worlde. John 1:30 This is he, of whom I sayde vnto you: After me commeth a man, which was before me. For he was or euer I, John 1:31 and I knewe him not: but that he shulde be declared in Israel, therfore am I come to baptyse with water. John 1:32 And Ihon bare recorde, & sayde: I sawe the sprete descende from heauen like vnto a doue, and abode vpon him, John 1:33 & I knewe him not. But he that sent me to baptyse with water, ye same sayde vnto me: Vpon whom thou shalt se the sprete descende and tary styll on him, the same is he, that baptyseth with the holy goost. John 1:34 And I sawe it, and bare recorde, that this is the sonne of God.
John 1:35 The nexte daye after, Ihon stode agayne, and two of his disciples. John 1:36 And wha he sawe Iesus walkynge, he sayde: Beholde the labe of God. John 1:37 And two of his disciples herde him speake, and folowed Iesus. John 1:38 And Iesus turned him aboute, and sawe them folowinge, and sayde vnto the: What seke ye? They sayde vnto him: Rabbi, (which is to saye by interpretacion, Master.) Where art thou at lodginge?
The calling of Andrew and Peter:
John 1:39 He sayde vnto them: Come and se it. They came and sawe it, & abode with him the same daye. It was aboute the tenth houre. John 1:40 One of the two, which herde Ihon speake, and folowed Iesus, was Andrew the brother of Symon Peter: John 1:41 the same founde first his brother Symon, and sayde vnto him: We haue founde Messias (which is by interpretacion, ye Anoynted) John 1:42 and brought him to Iesus. Whan Iesus behelde him, he sayde: Thou art Symon the sonne of Ionas, thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretacion, a stone.
of Philip and Nathanael.
John 1:43 The nexte daye after, wolde Iesus go agayne in to Galile, and founde Philippe, and sayde vnto him: Folowe me. John 1:44 Philippe was of Bethsaida the cite of Andrew and Peter. John 1:45 Philippe founde Nathanael, and sayde vnto him: We haue founde him, of who Moses in the lawe, and ye prophetes haue wrytten, euen Iesus the sonne of Ioseph of Nazareth. John 1:46 And Nathanaell sayde vnto him: What good can come out of Nazareth? Philippe sayde vnto him: Come, and se. John 1:47 Iesus sawe Nathanael comynge to him, and sayde of him: Beholde, a righte Israelite, in whom is no gyle. John 1:48 Nathanael sayde vnto him: From whence knowest thou me? Iesus answered, and sayde vnto him: Before yt Philippe called the, whan thou wast vnder the fygge tre, I sawe the. John 1:49 Nathanaell answered, and sayde vnto hi: Rabbi, thou art ye sonne of God, thou art ye kynge of Israel. John 1:50 Iesus answered, & sayde vnto him: Because I sayde vnto the, that I sawe the vnder the fygge tre, thou beleuest: thou shalt se yet greater thinges the these. John 1:51 And he sayde vnto him: Verely verely I saye vnto you: Fro this tyme forth shal ye se the heauen open, and the angels of God goinge vp & downe ouer the sonne of man.
