Chinese: NCV (Traditional)

← 路加福音 24   約翰福音 2 →

1 道成肉身太初有道,道與 神同在,道就是 神。

2 這道太初與 神同在。

3 萬有是藉著他造的;凡被造的,沒有一樣不是藉著他造的。

4 在他裡面有生命,(有些抄本第3、4節或譯:“萬有是藉著他造的,沒有一樣不是藉著他造的;凡被造的,都在他裡面有生命……”)這生命就是人的光。

5 光照在黑暗中,黑暗不能勝過光。

6 有一個人,名叫約翰,是 神所差來的。

7 他來是要作見證,就是為光作見證,使眾人藉著他可以相信。

8 他不是那光,而是要為那光作見證。

9 那光來到世界,是普照世人的真光。

10 他在世界,世界也是藉著他造的,世界卻不認識他。

11 他到自己的地方來,自己的人卻不接受他。

12 凡接受他的,就是信他名的人,他就賜給他們權利,成為 神的兒女。

13 他們不是從血統生的,不是從肉身的意思生的,也不是從人意生的,而是從 神生的。

14 道成了肉身,住在我們中間,滿有恩典和真理。我們見過他的榮光,正是從父而來的獨生子的榮光。

15 約翰為他作見證,大聲說:“這一位就是我所說的:‘那在我以後來的,位分比我高,因為他本來是在我以前的。’”

16 從他的豐盛裡我們都領受了,而且恩上加恩。

17 律法是藉著摩西頒布的,恩典和真理卻是藉著耶穌基督而來的。

18 從來沒有人見過 神,只有在父懷裡的獨生子把他彰顯出來。

19 施洗約翰的見證(太3:1~12;可1:1~8;路3:1~18)以下是約翰的見證:猶太人從耶路撒冷派祭司和利未人到約翰那裡,問他:“你是誰?”

20 約翰並不否認,坦白地承認說:“我不是基督。”

21 他們又問:“那麼你是誰?是以利亞嗎?”他說:“我不是。”“是那位先知嗎?”他回答:“不是。”

22 於是他們再問:“你是誰?好讓我們回覆派我們來的人。你說你自己是誰?”

23 他說:“我就是在曠野呼喊者的聲音:‘修直主的路!’正如以賽亞先知所說的。”

24 這些人是法利賽人派來的。

25 他們問約翰:“你既然不是基督,不是以利亞,也不是那位先知,那麼你為甚麼施洗呢?”

26 約翰回答:“我是用水施洗,但有一位站在你們中間,是你們不認識的;

27 他是在我以後來的,我就是給他解鞋帶也不配。”

28 這些事發生在約旦河東的伯大尼,約翰施洗的地方。

29  神的羊羔第二天,約翰見耶穌迎面而來,就說:“看哪, 神的羊羔,是除去世人的罪孽的!

30 這一位就是我所說的:‘有一個人,是在我以後來的,位分比我高,因為他本來是在我以前的。’

31 我本來不認識他,但為了要把他顯明給以色列人,因此我來用水施洗。”

32 約翰又作見證說:“我曾看見聖靈,好像鴿子從天上降下來,停留在他的身上。

33 我本來不認識他,但那差我來用水施洗的對我說:‘你看見聖靈降下來,停留在誰身上,誰就是用聖靈施洗的。’

34 我看見了,就作見證說:‘這就是 神的兒子。’”

35 呼召第一批門徒(太4:18~22;可1:16~20;路5:2~11)過了一天,約翰和他的兩個門徒又站在那裡。

36 約翰看見耶穌走過的時候,就說:“看哪, 神的羊羔!”

37 那兩個門徒聽見他的話,就跟從了耶穌。

38 耶穌轉過身來,看見他們跟著,就問:“你們要甚麼?”他們說:“拉比,你在哪裡住?”(“拉比”的意思就是“老師”。)

39 他說:“你們來看吧!”於是他們就去看他所住的地方。那一天他們就和耶穌住在一起;那時大約是下午四點鐘。

40 聽了約翰的話而跟從耶穌的那兩個人,一個是西門.彼得的弟弟安得烈。

41 他先找到自己的哥哥西門,告訴他:“我們遇見彌賽亞了!”(“彌賽亞”的意思就是“基督”。)

42 安得烈就帶他到耶穌那裡。耶穌定睛看著他,說:“你是約翰的兒子西門,你要稱為磯法。”(“磯法”翻譯出來就是“彼得”。)

43 呼召腓力和拿但業再過一天,耶穌決定往加利利去;他遇見腓力,就對他說:“來跟從我!”

44 腓力是伯賽大人,與安得烈和彼得同鄉。

45 腓力找到拿但業,告訴他:“摩西在律法書上所寫的,和眾先知所記的那位,我們已經遇見了,他就是約瑟的兒子拿撒勒人耶穌。”

46 拿但業說:“拿撒勒還能出甚麼好的嗎?”腓力說:“你來看!”

47 耶穌看見拿但業向他走過來,就論到他說:“看哪,這的確是個以色列人,他心裡沒有詭詐。”

48 拿但業問他:“你怎麼認識我呢?”耶穌回答:“腓力還沒有招呼你,你在無花果樹下的時候,我就看見你了。”

49 拿但業說:“拉比,你是 神的兒子,你是以色列的王!”

50 耶穌說:“因為我告訴你‘我看見你在無花果樹下’,你就信了嗎?你還要看見比這些更大的事。”

51 又對他說:“我實實在在告訴你們,你們要看見天開了, 神的眾使者在人子的身上,上去下來。”
