Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

John 1:1-12 in Latin, Marked and Translated

The following is the Latin text of John 1:1-12, as used by the Latin 2B class at Sayers Classical Academy (SCA) in Louisville, KY. The text is not identical to the Vulgate. (Im not sure where it came from originally; it looks a bit simplified.) I did add the Vulgate for the second half of verse 7, which was not present in the file I received (because students in Latin 2B at SCA do not know subjunctive forms). Id appreciate comments on the text from other Latin teachers.

1a.  In principio erat Verbum,
1b. et Verbum apud Deum,
1c. et Verbum erat Deus.
2.  Is erat in principio apud Deum.   
3a. Omnia ab Eo facta sunt;
3b. sine Eo, nihil factum est, quod factum est.
4a. In Eo erat vita,
4b. et vita erat lux hominum.
5a. Et lux lucet in tenebris.
5b. Et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt.
6a.  Fuit homo, missus a Deo,
6b. cuius nomen erat Ioannes.
7a. Hic venit et didit testimonium de luce
7b. ut omnes crederent per illum.
8a. Non erat ille lux,
8b. sed de luce narrabat.
9a. Erat lux vera,
9b. quae illuminat omnem hominem,
9c. veniens in hunc mundum.
10a. Is erat in mundo, et mundus factus est ab Eo.
10b. Sed mundus Eum non comprehendit.
11a. Ad suum gentem veniens,
11b. et sui gentes Eum non acceperunt.
12a. Sed illis qui Eum acceperunt,
12b. dedit potestatem fieri filios Dei.

Here is the same text, marked and translated. Again, Id appreciate any Latin teachers/students observations or questions concerning the markings and translation.
