John 1:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

[a]A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony,[b] to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:6 John was sent just as Jesus was “sent” (Jn 4:34) in divine mission. Other references to John the Baptist in this gospel emphasize the differences between them and John’s subordinate role.
  2. 1:7 Testimony: the testimony theme of John is introduced, which portrays Jesus as if on trial throughout his ministry. All testify to Jesus: John the Baptist, the Samaritan woman, scripture, his works, the crowds, the Spirit, and his disciples.
