John 1:1-5 TPT
In the beginning the Living Expression was already there.
And the Living Expression was with God, yet fully God.
They were together—face-to-face, in the very beginning.
And through his creative inspiration
this Living Expression made all things,
for nothing has existence apart from him!
A fountain of life was in him,
for his life is light for all humanity.
And this Light never fails to shine through darkness—
Light that darkness could not overcome!
