John 1:35-50 WEB

Here's another excerpt from the World English Bible on the Gospel of John...          Again, the next day, John was standing with two of his disciples, and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, “What are you looking for?”                        They said to him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher), “where are you staying?”            He said to them, “Come, and see.”                They came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day.

I'm going to present for your consideration sections of Scripture from the World English Bible (WEB). The WEB is a tremendous project to create a complete translation of the Holy bible in normal Modern English that is available in the Public Domain worldwide. For more on this translation, check out the Website,   . Here begins the text from the Gospel of John.       The Good News According to John       In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. The
