The Gospel of John (Selected Verses)

“In the beginning was the Word
The Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through Him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being except through Him.
What has come into being through Him is Life,
Life that was the Light of men;
and Light shines in Darkness,
and Darkness cannot overpower it.”

– John 1:1-5


“In all truth I tell you,
no one can see the kingdom of God
without being born from above…

… In all truth I tell you,
no one can enter the kingdom of God
without being born through water and the Spirit;
what is born of human nature is human;
what is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

– John 1:3, 5-6


“… the hour is coming –
indeed is already here –
when true worshippers
will worship the Father
in spirit and truth:
that is the kind of worshipper
the Father seeks.
God is spirit,
and those who worship
must worship in spirit and truth.”

– John 4:23-24


“How can you believe,
since you look too each other for glory
and are not concerned
with the glory that comes from God?
Do not imagine that I am going to accuse you
before the Father:
you have placed your hopes in Moses
and Moses will be the one who accuses you.”

– John 5:44-45


“It is the spirit that gives life,
the flesh has nothing to offer.
the words I have spoken to you
are spirit and they are life.”

– John 6:63


“I am the light of the world;
anyone who follows me
will not be walking in the dark,
but will have the light of life…

… If you make my word your home
you will indeed be my disciples;
you will come to know the truth,
and the truth will set you free.”

– John 8:12, 31-32


“Anyone who loves life loses it;
anyone who hates his life in this world
will keep it for eternal life.”

– John 12:25


“And eternal life is this:
to know you,
the only true God,
and the Anointed Saviour whom you have sent.”

– John 17:3
