Well, I read this Sunday night, before going to bed....I thought I'd share it with you.....Verses 7 and 8 also have the King James Version written in....
1 John 5:6-9
(Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?)
6) This is the one who came by water and blood-Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7) For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
(KJV: For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.)
8) The Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are inh agreement.
(KJV: And theree are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit , and the water, and the blood: these three agree in one.)
9) We accept mans's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.
10) Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
(Verse 5: There is a conquering power through this confession because God is sovereign over the world, and only through the Son does man have access to, and find favor with God.)
(Verse 6: Water and blood: This is the water of Jesus' baptism, the blood of His atoning death. The Spirit gives assurance that the biblical message about Jesus is true.)
(Verses 7, 8: Greek manuscripts are unanimous in showing that verse 7 should end with "record." (Literally it says: "There are three who bear witness.") Likewise, verse 8 should read simply: "The Spirit, the water, and the blood; and the three are in agreement." The longer version of these verses made their way into the traditional printed Greek Testament (TR) and thus into the King James Version due to influence of the Latin Bible and only for late Greek manuscripts. The point of John's original version was that the witnesses of verse 6 comprise one unified testimony to the veracity of the gospel. This insight in turn paves the way for verse 9.)
(Verse 10: To deny the biblical witness of Christ is to reject God himself.)
