Bible Verse

John's Gospel, Chapter 1...

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the  beginning. All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.  In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind.”
