This is the Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him
to show to his servants the things which must happen soon,
which he sent and made known by his angel to his servant, John,
who testified to God’s word and of the testimony of Jesus Christ ◆ ◆ ◆ , about everything that he saw.
Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy,
and keep the things that are written in it, for the time is at hand.
John, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia:
No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man ◆, who is in heaven.
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him.
He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn’t believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.
This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God.”
