in these last days, he spoke to us through a
son, whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe,
who is the refulgence of his glory, the very imprint of his being, and
who sustains all things by his mighty word. When he had accomplished purification from sins, he took

For to which of the angels did God ever say:
"You are my son; this day I have begotten you"? Or again: "I will be a father to him, and he shall

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according
to Saint John 1:1-18.
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 to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be. What came to be
him was life, and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The true light, which enlightens everyone, was
coming into the world.
He was in the world, and the
world came to be through him, but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of
God, to those who believe in his name,
who were born
not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man's decision but of God.
And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw
his glory, the glory as of the Father's only Son, full of grace and truth.
John testified to him and cried out, saying, "This was he of whom I
said, 'The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.'"
From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of

and truth came through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever
seen God. The only Son, God, who is at the Father's side, has revealed him.
