The divinity, humanity, and office of Jesus Christ.
John 1:1 In the begynnynge was the worde, and the word was with God, & the worde was God. John 1:2 The same was in the begynnynge wyth God. John 1:3 All thynges were made by it and without it was made nothynge that was made. John 1:4 In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men, John 1:5 & the lyght shyneth in the darknes, but the darknes comprehended it not.
John 1:6 Ther was a man sent from God, whose name was Iohn. John 1:7 These same came as a wytnes to beare wytnes of the lyght, that all men through him myght beleue. John 1:8 He was not that lyght but to beare witnes of the lyght. John 1:9 That was a true lyght, which lyghted all men that come into the worlde. John 1:10 He was in the worlde, & the worlde was made by him, & yet the worlde knewe him not. John 1:11 He came amonge his (owne) & his owne receiued him not. John 1:12 But as manye as receyued him to them he gaue power to be the sonnes of God in that they beleued on his name John 1:13 & which were borne not of the bloude nor of the wyl of the flesh, nor yet of the wyll of man: but of God. John 1:14 And the worde was made flesh & dwelt amonge vs, and we sawe the glorye of it, as the glory of the onlye begotten sonne of the father, which worde was ful of grace & verite.
The testimony of John.
John 1:15 Iohn bare witnes of him & cried saiyng: This was he of whom I spake, he that cometh after me was before me, because he was yer then I. John 1:16 And of his fulnes haue all we receyued, euen (grace) for grace. John 1:17 For the lawe was geuen by Moyses, but grace and truthe came by Iesus Christ. John 1:18 No man hath sene God at anye tyme. The onlye begotten sonne which is in the bosome of the father, he hath declared hym.
John 1:19 And this is the recorde of Iohn: When the Iewes sent pryestes and Leuites from Ierusalem, to axe him what arte thou? John 1:20 And he confessed and denied not, and sayd plainlye: I am not Chryste. John 1:21 And they axed hym: what then? Art thou Helias? And he sayed: I am not. Art thou a Prophete? And he aunswered no. John 1:22 Then sayed they vnto him: what art thou? that we may geue an aunswere to them that sent vs? What sayest thou of thy selfe? John 1:23 He sayde: I am the voice of a cryar in the wyldernes, make strayght the waye of the Lorde, as sayde the Prophete Esaias. John 1:24 And they which were sent, were of the pharyseis. John 1:25 And they axed him: and sayd vnto him: why baptysest thou then if thou be not Christ, nor Helias, neyther a Prophete? John 1:26 Iohn aunswered them saiynge: I baptyse with water, but one is come amonge you whom ye knowe not, John 1:27 he it is that cometh after me, which was before me, whose shoe latchet I am not worthy to vnlose. John 1:28 These thinges were done in Bethabara beyonde Iordaine wher Iohn did baptyse.
John 1:29 The nexte daye Iohn sawe Iesus commynge vnto him, and sayde: beholde the lambe of God, which taketh away the synne of the worlde. John 1:30 This is he of whom I sayde. After me cometh a man which was before me, for he was yer then I, John 1:31 and I knowe him not: but that he shoulde be declared to Israel, therfore am I come baptysynge with water. John 1:32 And Iohn bare recorde saiynge: I saw the sprete descende from heauen, lyke vnto a doue, and abide vpon him, John 1:33 and I knewe him not. But he that sent me: to baptyse in water, the same sayde vnto me: vpon whom thou shalt se the sprete descende and tarye styll on him, the same is he, whych baptyseth wyth the holye ghost. John 1:34 And I sawe and beare recorde that this is the sonne of God.
John 1:35 The next daye after Iohn stode againe, and two of his disciples. John 1:36 And he behelde Iesus as he walked by, & sayde: beholde the lambe of God. John 1:37 And the .ij. disciples hearde him speake & foloweth Iesus. John 1:38 And Iesus turned aboute and sawe them folowe, and sayde vnto them: what seke ye? They sayde vnto him: Rabbi (which is to saye by interpretacion, Maister) wher dwellest thou?
The calling of Andrew and Peter:
John 1:39 He sayed vnto them: come and se. They came and sawe wher he dwelte: and abode with him the daye. For it was aboute the tenth houre. John 1:40 One of the two which hearde Iohn speake and folowed Iesus, was Andrew Simon Peters brother. John 1:41 The same founde his brother Simon fyrst, and sayde vnto him: we haue founde Messias, which is by interpretation, anointed: John 1:42 and brought him to Iesus. And Iesus behelde him and saide: thou art Simon the sonne of Ionas, thou shalt be called Cephas: which is by interpretacion, a stone.
of Philip and Nathanael.
John 1:43 The daye folowinge Iesus woulde go into Galyle, and founde Philip, and saide vnto him: folow me. John 1:44 Philip was of Bethsaida the citye of Andrewe and Peter. John 1:45 And Phylyp founde Nathanaell, and sayde vnto hym. We haue founde hym of whom Moyses in the lawe, and the prophetes did write: Iesus the sonne of Ioseph of Nazareth. John 1:46 And Nathanael said to him: Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saide to him: come and se. John 1:47 Iesus sawe Nathanael comminge to him and sayde of him: Beholde a right Israelyte, in whom is no gyle. John 1:48 Nathanael, saide vnto hym: wher knewest thou me? Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto him: Before that Philyp called the when thou wast vnder the fygge tree, I sawe the. John 1:49 Nathanael aunswered & sayde vnto him: Rabbi, thou art the sonne of God, thou art the kynge of Israel. John 1:50 Iesus aunswered and sayde vnto him: Because I sayde vnto the: I sawe the vnder the fygge tree, thou beleuest. Thou shalt se greater thinges then these. John 1:51 And he sayed vnto him: Verely verely, I saye vnto you: here after shall ye se heauen open, and the aungels of God ascendinge and descendinge ouer the sonne of man.
