The divinity and incarnation of Christ. John bears witness of him. He begins to call his disciples.
 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
 And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
 This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him.
 He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light.
 That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.
 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name.
 Nathanael answered him, and said: Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the King of Israel.
 Jesus answered, and said to him: Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, thou believest: greater things than these shalt thou see.
 And he saith to him: Amen, amen I say to you, you shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
