The Word Became Flesh

aIn the beginning was bthe Word, and cthe Word was with God, and dthe Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.


18 lNo one has ever seen God; mthe only God,1 who is at the Father's side,2 nhe has made him known.


17 But Jesus answered them, My Father is working until now, and I am working.

Jesus Is Equal with God

18 This was why the Jews zwere seeking all the more to kill him, abecause not only was he bbreaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God chis own Father, dmaking himself equal with God.


58 Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, aI am. 59 So bthey picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.


30 uI and the Father are one.

31 vThe Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but wfor blasphemy, because you, being a man, xmake yourself God.


28 Thomas answered him, sMy Lord and my God!
