The Word of Life
1 # See John 1:1 That which was #[ch. 2:13, 14] from the beginning, #Acts 4:20 which we have heard, #John 19:35 which we have seen with our eyes, #ch. 4:14; John 1:14; 2 Pet. 1:16 which we looked upon and #Luke 24:39; John 20:27have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 2#John 1:4; 11:25; 14:6 the life #ch. 3:5, 8; Rom. 16:26; 1 Tim. 3:16 was made manifest, and we have seen it, and #See John 15:27 testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, #[See ver. 1 above]which was with the Father and #ch. 3:5, 8; Rom. 16:26; 1 Tim. 3:16 was made manifest to us— 3#[See ver. 1 above] that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed #John 17:21; 1 Cor. 1:9; [ch. 2:24]our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4And we are writing these things so #John 15:11; 16:24that our#1:4 Some manuscripts your joy may be complete.
Walking in the Light
5 # ch. 3:11 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that #James 1:17; [ch. 4:8; John 4:24]God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6#ch. 2:11; John 12:35; 2 Cor. 6:14 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and #John 3:21do not practice the truth. 7But #[Isa. 2:5] if we walk in the light, #[Ps. 104:2; 1 Tim. 6:16] as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and #Eph. 1:7; Heb. 9:14; 1 Pet. 1:19; Rev. 5:9; 7:14; 12:11the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8#[Job 15:14; Jer. 2:35]; See James 3:2 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and #ch. 2:4the truth is not in us. 9#Ps. 32:5; 51:3; Prov. 28:13 If we confess our sins, he is #[Ps. 143:1; Rom. 3:26] faithful and just to forgive us our sins and #[See ver. 7 above]to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say we have not sinned, #ch. 5:10 we make him a liar, and #John 5:38; 8:37his word is not in us.
