John 1:1-18 (ESV) 

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word 
was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things 
were made through him, and without him was not 
any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, 
and the life was the light of men. 5 The light 
shines in the darkness, and the darkness has 
not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from 
God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, 
to bear witness about the light, that all might 
believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came 
to bear witness about the light. 9 The true light, 
which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 
10 He was in the world, and the world was made 
through him, yet the world did not know him. 
11 He came to his own, and his own people did 
not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive 
him, who believed in his name, he gave the right 
to become children of God, 13 who were born, 
not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor 
of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word 
became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen 
his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, 
full of grace and truth. 15 ( John bore witness 
about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom 
I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, 
because he was before me.’ ”)   

God sent Jesus to us born by poor virgin. 
John witness to the light but world 
rejected the light. But Jesus came 
to make us his siblings. He gave us us Christ 
did more for us he gave us forgiveness,
gave his righteousness, he called us the Holy 
Spirit so we might change, he died to save us, 
he predestined adopted the us, to making us 
God's children.
