Chapter 1

What was from the beginning, what we’ve heard, what we’ve seen with our own eyes, what we watched and our hands touched concerning the Word of Life - 2and the Life was shown, and we have seen, we testify, and we tell you the Eternal Life that was with the Father and shown to us- 3what we have seen, we’ve also heard and we tell it to you so that you might have fellowship with us, too. Certainly, our fellowship is with the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write these things so that our joy may be complete.

5This is the Message we have heard from Him and we tell you, that God is Light and there is no darkness in Him at all. 6If we say that we have fellowship with Him, but we walk in the dark, then we lie and we don’t do the Truth. 7But if we walk in the Light, just as He is in the Light Himself, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of His Son Jesus cleans us of all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we lie to ourselves and the Truth isn’t in us. 9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous and He will take away our sins and clean us of all unrighteousness 10If we say that we have not sinned, then we make Him a liar and His Word isn’t in us.
