Testimony Concerning the Son of God

1Πᾶς πιστευων ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἐστὶν χριστος, ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ γεγεννηται: καὶ πᾶς ἀγαπῶν τὸν γεννησαντα ἀγαπᾷ καὶ τὸν γεγεννημενον ἐξ αὐτοῦ. 2Ἐν τούτῳ γινωσκομεν ὅτι ἀγαπῶμεν τὰ τεκνα τοῦ θεοῦ, ὅταν τὸν θεὸν ἀγαπῶμεν, καὶ τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ τηρῶμεν. 3Αὕτη γαρ ἐστιν ἀγάπη τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ τηρῶμεν: καὶ αἱ ἐντολαὶ αὐτοῦ βαρεῖαι οὐκ εἰσίν. 4Ὅτι πᾶν τὸ γεγεννημενον ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ νικᾷ τὸν κοσμον: καὶ αὕτη ἐστὶν νικη νικησασα τὸν κοσμον, πιστις ἡμῶν. 5Τίς ἐστιν νικῶν τὸν κοσμον, εἰ μὴ πιστευων ὅτι Ἰησοῦς ἐστὶν υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ; 6Οὗτός ἐστιν ἐλθὼν δι᾽ ὕδατος καὶ αἵματος, Ἰησοῦς χριστος: οὐκ ἐν τῷ ὕδατι μονον, ἀλλ᾽ ἐν τῷ ὕδατι καὶ τῷ αἵματι. Καὶ τὸ πνεῦμά ἐστιν τὸ μαρτυροῦν, ὅτι τὸ πνεῦμά ἐστιν ἀλήθεια. 7Ὅτι τρεῖς εἰσὶν οἱ μαρτυροῦντες, 8τὸ πνεῦμα, καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ, καὶ τὸ αἷμα: καὶ οἱ τρεῖς εἰς τὸ ἕν εἰσιν. 9Εἰ τὴν μαρτυριαν τῶν ἀνθρώπων λαμβανομεν, μαρτυρια τοῦ θεοῦ μειζων ἐστίν: ὅτι αὕτη ἐστὶν μαρτυρια τοῦ θεοῦ, ἣν μεμαρτυρηκεν περὶ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ. 10 πιστευων εἰς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἔχει τὴν μαρτυριαν ἐν αὐτῷ: μὴ πιστευων τῷ θεῷ ψευστην πεποιηκεν αὐτόν, ὅτι οὐ πεπιστευκεν εἰς τὴν μαρτυριαν, ἣν μεμαρτυρηκεν θεὸς περὶ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ. 11Καὶ αὕτη ἐστὶν μαρτυρια, ὅτι ζωὴν αἰώνιον ἔδωκεν ἡμῖν θεος, καὶ αὕτη ζωὴ ἐν τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ ἐστίν. 12 ἔχων τὸν υἱὸν ἔχει τὴν ζωην: μὴ ἔχων τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ θεοῦ τὴν ζωὴν οὐκ ἔχει.
