في البَدْءِ كَانَ الكَلِمَة، والكَلِمَةُ كَانَ مَعَ الله، وكَانَ الكَلِمَةُ الله
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا01/من01حتى18/:”في البَدْءِ كَانَ الكَلِمَة، والكَلِمَةُ كَانَ مَعَ الله، وكَانَ الكَلِمَةُ الله. كانَ الكَلِمَةُ هذَا في البَدْءِ معَ الله. كُلُّ شَيءٍ بِهِ كُوِّن، وبِغَيْرِهِ مَا كُوِّنَ أَيُّ شَيء. كُلُّ مَا كُوِّنَ بِهِ كَانَ حَيَاة، والحَيَاةُ كَانَتْ نُورَ النَّاس، والنُّورُ في الظُّلْمَةِ يَسْطَع، والظُّلْمَةُ لَمْ تَقْوَ عَلَيْه. كَانَ إِنْسَانٌ مُرْسَلٌ مِنْ عِنْدِ الله، إِسْمُهُ يُوحَنَّا. جَاءَ يُوحَنَّا هذَا لِلشَّهَادَة، لِيَشْهَدَ لِلنُّور، فَيُؤْمِنَ الجَمِيعُ عَلى يَدِهِ. مَا كَانَ هُوَ النُّور، بَلْ جَاءَ يَشْهَدُ لِلنُّور، لأَنَّ النُّورَ الحَقيقيّ، الَّذي يُنيرُ كُلَّ إِنْسان، كانَ آتِيًا إِلى العَالَم. في العَالَمِ كَانَ الكَلِمَة، والعَالَمُ بِهِ كُوِّن، والعَالَمُ مَا عَرَفَهُ. إِلى بَيْتِهِ جَاء، وأَهْلُ بَيْتِهِ مَا قبِلُوه. أَمَّا كُلُّ الَّذينَ قَبِلُوه، وَهُمُ المُؤمِنُونَ بِٱسْمِهِ، فَقَدْ أَعْطَاهُم سُلْطَانًا أَنْ يَصيرُوا أَولادَ الله، هُمُ الَّذين، لا مِنْ دَمٍ، ولا مِنْ رَغْبَةِ جَسَد، ولا مِنْ مَشيئةِ رَجُل، بَلْ مِنَ اللهِ وُلِدُوا. والكَلِمَةُ صَارَ جَسَدًا وسَكَنَ بَيْنَنَا، ورَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ، مَجْدَ ٱبْنٍ وَحيد، آتٍ مِنَ الآب، مَلآنَ نِعْمَةً وحَقًا. لَهُ يَشْهَدُ يُوحَنَّا، وقَدْ هَتَفَ قَائِلاً: «هذَا هُوَ الَّذي قُلْتُ فِيه: إِنَّ الآتي ورَائِي قَدْ صَارَ قُدَّامي، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَبْلي». أَجَل، مِنْ مِلْئِهِ نَحْنُ كُلُّنَا أَخَذْنَا نِعْمَةً تِلْوَ نِعْمَة. عَلى يَدِ مُوسَى أُعْطِيَتِ التَّوْرَاة، وعَلى يَدِ يَسُوعَ المَسِيحِ صَارَتِ النِّعْمَةُ والحَقّ. أَللهُ مَا رَآهُ أَحَدٌ البَتَّة: أَلٱبْنُ الوَحِيدُ الله، الكَائِنُ في حِضْنِ الآب، هُوَ الَّذي أَخْبَرَ عَنْهُ”.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 01/01-18/:”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 into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth. (John testified to him and cried out, ‘This was he of whom I said, “He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.” ’) From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.We have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,
