Prologue

1 John 1:1-4

1 That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we gazed upon, and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life 2 (and the Life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you The Eternal Life; Who, indeed, was with the Father, and was manifested to us); 3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you also, that ye also may have fellow-ship with us; and our fellowship also is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write, that your joy may be made full.

Revelation 1:1-3

1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him, to show to His servants the things which must shortly come to pass; and, having sent, He signified them through His angel to His servant John; 2 who testified of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ, whatsoever things he saw. 3 Happy is he that reads, and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things written therein; for the time is near.
