John 10: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
John 11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

John 14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 20: And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
John 21: And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
John 22: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
John 23: He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
John 24: And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
John 25: And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
John 26: John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
John 27: He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

John 38: Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
John 39: He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
John 40: One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
John 41: He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
John 42: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
