[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Joh 1:15 John spoke about him. He cried out, "This is the one I was talking about when I said, 'He comes after me, but he is greater than I am, because he existed before I was born.' "
Joh 1:16 Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another.
Joh 1:17 God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen God. The only Son, who is the same as God and is at the Father's side, he has made him known.
Joh 1:19 The Jewish authorities in Jerusalem sent some priests and Levites to John to ask him, "Who are you?"
Joh 1:20 John did not refuse to answer, but spoke out openly and clearly, saying: "I am not the Messiah."
Joh 1:21 "Who are you, then?" they asked. "Are you Elijah?" "No, I am not," John answered. "Are you the Prophet?" they asked. "No," he replied.
Joh 1:22 "Then tell us who you are," they said. "We have to take an answer back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself ?"
Joh 1:23 John answered by quoting the prophet Isaiah: "I am 'the voice of someone shouting in the desert: Make a straight path for the Lord to travel!' "
Joh 1:24 The messengers, who had been sent by the Pharisees,
Joh 1:25 then asked John, "If you are not the Messiah nor Elijah nor the Prophet, why do you baptize?"
Joh 1:26 John answered, "I baptize with water, but among you stands the one you do not know.
Joh 1:27 He is coming after me, but I am not good enough even to untie his sandals."
