New Testament

John Chapter 1


In the beginning was the Word, with God, and God.
John the Baptist bare record of Him, His feet shod
With shoes John was unworthy to loose. Him seeing,
John declared: "Behold God's lamb, Who takes away sin!"
"This man is the Coming One whom I've spoken of,
I saw the Spirit descend on Him like a dove!"
First Andrew, and then Simon Peter, Christ cajoled,
Next day Philip, then Nathaniel were enrolled.
The latter He said had hid under fig tree shade;
Shocked, Nathaniel declared Christ as King displayed!
Amused, Christ said greater things than that he would scan:
Angels going up and down upon the Son of Man!
