In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. Children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
"I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world just as I am not of the world."
