John 1:1-5 and 14-17 say:
1Before the world began, the Word was there. The Word was there with God. The Word was God. 2He was there with God in the beginning. 3All things were made through him (the Word). Nothing was made without him. 4In him there was life. That life was light (understanding, goodness) for the people of the world.5The Light shines in the darkness. The darkness has not defeated the Light...14The Word became a man and lived among us. We saw his glory--the glory that belongs to the only Son of the Father. The Word was full of grace (kindness) and truth.15John told people about him. John said, "This is the One I was talking about. I said, 'The One who comes after me is more important than I am. He was living before me.'" 16The Word* (Christ) was full of grace and truth. From him we all received more and more blessings. 17The law was given through Moses. But grace and [the way of] truth came through Jesus Christ. (Easy-to-Read Version)
King James Version:
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not..14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
