The Living Bible
1-2 Before anything else existed,there was Christ,* with God. He has always been alive and is himself God.
3 He created everything there is—nothing exists that he didn’t make.
4 Eternal life is in him, and this life gives light to all mankind.
5 His life is the light that shines through the darkness—and the darkness can never extinguish it.
Amplified Bible Classic Edition (AMPC)
In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.
2 He was present originally with God.
3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.
5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
