BESORAH YAHUCHANON (Gospel of John) 1

IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with את eth ELOHIYM, and the Word was ELOHIYM. 2 The same was in the beginning with את eth ELOHIYM. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from YAHUAH, whose name was Yahuchanon. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of YAHUAH, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of YAHUAH. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and taber­nacled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the yachiyd of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15 Yahuchanon bore witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the Torah was given through Mosheh, grace and truth came by YAHUSHA HAMASHI­ACH. 18 את eth No man has seen YAH at any time; the yachiyd, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.

19 And this is the record of Yahu­chanon, when the Yahudiym sent priests and Leviyiym from Yerushalayim to ask him, Who are you? 20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not HAMASHIACH. 21 And they asked him, What then? Are you Eliyahu? And he said, I am not. Are you that prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they unto him, Who are you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What say you of yourself? 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the Way of YAHUAH, as said the prophet Yesha`yahu. 24 And they which were sent were of the Parashiym. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why immerse you then, if you be not that HAMASHIACH, nor Eliyahu, neither that prophet? 26 Yahuchanon answered them, saying, I immerse with water: but there stands one among you, whom ye know not; 27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done in Beyt Avarah[i] beyond Yarden, where Yahuchanon was immersing.

29 The next day Yahuchanon sees YAHUSHA coming unto him, and says, Behold the Lamb of YAHUAH, which takes away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Yisra’el, therefore am I come immersing with water. 32 And Yahuchanon bore record, saying, I saw the RUACH descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to immerse with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom you את eth shall see the RUACH descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which immerses with the RUACH HAQADASH. 34 And I saw, and bore record that this is the Son of ELOHIYM.

35 Again the next day after Yahuchanon stood, and two of his Talmidiym; 36 And looking upon YAHUSHA as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of YAHUAH! 37 And the two Talmidiym heard him speak, and they followed YAHUSHA. 38 Then YAHUSHA turned, and saw them following, and said unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where do you dwell? 39 He said unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. 40 One of the two which heard Yahuchanon speak, and followed him, was Andrai, Shim`on Kepha's brother. 41 He first finds his own brother Shim`on, and says unto him, We have found HAMASHIACH. 42 And he brought him to YAHUSHA. And when YAHUSHA beheld him, he said, את eth You are Shim`on the son of Yonah,[ii] you shall be called Kepha, which is by interpreta­tion, A stone.

43 The day following YAHUSHA would go forth into Galiyl, and find Philip, and say unto him, Follow me. 44 Now את eth-Philip was of Beyt Tsayad, the city of Andrai and Kepha. 45 Philip finds Nethan’el,[iii] and says unto him, We have found him, of whom Mosheh in the Torah, and the prophets, did write, את eth-YAHUSHA of Natsa­reth, the son of Yoceph. 46 And Nethan’el said unto him, Can there any good thing את eth come out of Natsareth? Philip said unto him, Come and see. 47 YAHUSHA saw Nethan’el coming to him, and said of him, Behold a Yisra`e’liy indeed, in whom is no guile! 48 Nethan’el said unto him, from whence do you know me? YAHUSHA answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you. 49 Nethan’el answered and said unto him, Rabbi, you are the Son of ELOHIYM; you are the King of Yisra’el. 50 YAHUSHA answered and said unto him, Because I said unto you, I saw you under the fig tree, you believe? you shall see greater things than these. 51 And he said unto him, Amein, Amein, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of YAHUAH ascending and descending upon the Son of Adam.
