Merry Christmas!

καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο καὶ ἐσκήνωσεν ἐν ἡμῖν καὶ ἐθεασάμεθα τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ δόξαν ὡς μονογενοῦς παρὰ πατρός πλήρης χάριτος καὶ ἀληθείας. . . . ὅτι ἐκ τοῦ πληρώματος αὐτοῦ ἡμεῖς πάντες ἐλάβομεν καὶ χάριν ἀντὶ χάριτος. ὅτι ὁ νόμος διὰ Μωϋσέως ἐδόθη ἡ χάρις καὶ ἡ ἀλήθεια διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ἐγένετο.

And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us and we beheld his glory, glory as of the unique One from the Father, full of grace and truth. . . . For from his fullness we all received even grace in the place of grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for posting this Doc; I just learned how to quote much of John 1 in Greek so it was a joy to read this is morning and right out understand it. Since you sent Greek Christmas greetings, I'll send you greetings back in Coptic.
