Commentary on John - Volume 1
6. There was a man sent by God, whose name was John. 7. He came for a testimony
, that he might testify of the light; that by him all might believe. 8. He was not that light, but that he might testify concerning the light. 9. The true light was that which enlighteneth every man who cometh into the world. 10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came into his own, and his own received him not. 12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God;
namely, to those who believe in his name; 13. Who were born not of bloods
nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
