The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:5)

There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. (John 1:6)

He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. (John 1:7)

He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. (John 1:8)

The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. (John 1:9)
