John 1:10-13 / The Passion Translation

He entered into the world he created, yet the world was unaware. He came to the people he created—to those who should have received him, but they did not recognize him. But those who embraced him and took hold of his name he gave authority to become the children of God! He was not born by the joining of human parents or from natural means, or by a man’s desire, but he was born of God.
