Revelation, 6 May 1833 [D&C 93]

men were made by him all things were made by him and through him and of him14

The Gospel according to John reads, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1–4.)  


and I, John bear reccord that I beheld his glory as the glory of the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth even the spirit of truth which came and dwelt in flesh and dwelt among us15

John 1:14 reads, “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.”  


and I John saw that he received not of the fulness at the first but received grace for grace and he received not of the fulness but continued from grace to grace until he received a fulness and thus he was called the son of God because he received not of the fulness at the first16

John 1:16 reads, “And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” In his translation of the Bible JS modified this verse to read, “For in the begining was the word, even the son, who is made flesh, and sent unto us by the will of the Father. And as many as beleive on his name shall receive of his fullness. And of his fullness have all we received, even imortality and eternal life, through his grace.” (New Testament Revision 2, p. 105 [second numbering] [Joseph Smith Translation, John 1:16].)  


and I John bear reccord and lo the heavens were opened and the holy ghost decended upon him in the form of a dove and set upon him and there came a voice out of heaven saying this is my beloved son,17

See John 1:32; Matthew 3:16–17; Mark 1:10–11; and Luke 3:21–22.
