Chapter One
  1. IN the be­gin­ning was the Word, and the Word was with ⟨God⟩, and the Word was ⟨God⟩.
  2. The same was in the be­gin­ning with ⟨God⟩.
  3. All things were made by him; and with­out him was not any thing made that was made.
  4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
  5. And the light shin­eth in dark­ness, and the dark­ness com­pre­hend­ed it not.
  6. There was a man sent from ⟨God⟩, whose name was John.
  7. The same came for a wit­ness, to bear wit­ness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
  8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear wit­ness of that Light.
  9. That was the true Light, which light­eth every man that com­eth in­to the world.
  10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
  11. He came un­to his own, and his own re­ceived him not.
  12. But as ma­ny as re­ceived him, to them gave he pow­er to be­come the sons of ⟨God⟩, even to them that be­lieve on his name:
  13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of ⟨God⟩.
  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.
  15. John bare wit­ness of him, and cried, say­ing, This was he of whom I spake. He that com­eth af­ter me is pre­ferred be­fore me: for he was be­fore me.
  16. And of his ful­ness have all we re­ceived, and grace for grace.
  17. For the law was giv­en by Mo­ses, but grace and truth came by ⟨Jesus⟩ ⟨Christ⟩.
  18. No man hath seen ⟨God⟩ at any time; the on­ly be­got­ten Son, which is in the bosom of the Fa­ther, he hath de­clared him.
  19. And this is the rec­ord of John, when the Jews sent priests and Le­vites from Je­ru­sa­lem to ask him, Who art thou?
  20. And he con­fessed, and de­nied not; but con­fessed, I am not the ⟨Christ⟩.
  21. And they asked him, What then? Art thou E-‍li-‍as? And he sa­ith, I am not. Art thou that proph­et? And he an­swered, No. (See: Matthew 17:12)
  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?
  23. He said, I am the voice of one cry­ing in the wil­der­ness, Make straight the way of the ⟨Lord⟩, as said the proph­et E-‍sa-‍ias.
  24. And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
  25. And they asked him, and said un­to him, Why bap­tiz­est thou then, if thou be not that ⟨Christ⟩, nor E-‍li-‍as, nei­ther that prophet? (See: Matthew 17:12)
  26. John an­swered them, say­ing, I bap­tize with wa­ter: but there stand­eth one among you, whom ye know not;
  27. He it is, who com­ing af­ter me is pre­ferred be­fore me, whose shoe’s lat­chet I am not wor­thy to unloose.
  28. These things were done in Beth-‍ab-‍a-‍ra be­yond Jor­dan, where John was baptizing.
  29. The next day John seeth ⟨Jesus⟩ com­ing un­to him, and sa­ith, Be­hold the Lamb of ⟨God⟩, which tak­eth away the sin of the world.
  30. This is he of whom I said, Af­ter me com­eth a man which is pre­fered be­fore me: for he was be­fore me.
  31. And I knew him not: but that he should be made man­i­fest to Is­ra­el, there­fore am I come bap­tiz­ing with water.
  32. And John bare rec­ord, say­ing, I saw the Spir­it de­scend­ing from heav­en like a dove, and it abode up­on him.
  33. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to bap­tize with wa­ter, the same said un­to me, Up­on whom thou shalt see the Spir­it de­scend­ing, and re­main­ing on him, the same is he which bap­tiz­eth with the Holy ⟨Ghost⟩.
  34. And I saw and bare rec­ord that this is the Son of ⟨God⟩.
  35. Again the next day af­ter John stood, and two of his disciples;
  36. And look­ing up­on ⟨Jesus⟩ as he walked, he sa­ith, Be­hold the Lamb of ⟨God⟩!
  37. And the two di­sci­ples heard him speak, and they fol­lowed ⟨Jesus⟩.
  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?
  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.
  40. One of the two which heard John speak, and fol­lowed him, was An­drew, Si­mon Pe­ter’s brother.
  41. He first find­eth his own broth­er Si­mon, and sa­ith un­to him, We have found the Mes-‍si-‍as, which is, be­ing in­ter­pret­ed, the ⟨Christ⟩.
  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 Ce-‍phas, which is by in­ter­pre­ta­tion, A stone.
  43. The day fol­low­ing ⟨Jesus⟩ would go forth in­to Gal­i­lee, and find­eth Phil­ip, and sa­ith un­to him, Fol­low me.
  44. Now Phil­ip was of Beth-‍sa-‍i-‍da, the city of An­drew and Peter.
  45. Philip find­eth Na-‍than-‍a-‍el, and sa­ith un­to him, We have found him, of whom Mo­ses in the law, and the proph­ets, did write, ⟨Jesus⟩ of Naz­a­reth, the son of Joseph.
  46. And Na-‍than-‍a-‍el said un­to him, Can there any good thing come out of Naz­a­reth? Phil­ip sa­ith un­to him, Come and see.
  47. ⟨Jesus⟩ saw Na-‍than-‍a-‍el com­ing to him, and sa­ith of him, Be­hold an Is­ra­el­ite in­deed, in whom is no guile!
  48. Na-‍than-‍a-‍el sa­ith un­to him, Whence know­est thou me? ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, Be­fore that Phil­ip called thee, when thou wast un­der the fig tree, I saw thee.
  49. Na-‍than-‍a-‍el an­swered and sa­ith un­to him, Rab­bi, thou art the Son of ⟨God⟩; thou art the King of Israel.
  50. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, Be­cause I said un­to thee, I saw thee un­der the fig tree, be­liev­est thou? thou shalt see great­er things than these.
  51. And he sa­ith un­to him, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Here­af­ter ye shall see heav­en op­en, and the an­gels of ⟨God⟩ as­cend­ing and de­scend­ing up­on the Son of man. (See: Genesis 28:12)
Chapter Two
  1. AND the third day there was a mar­riage in Ca­na of Gal­i­lee; and the moth­er of ⟨Jesus⟩ was there:
  2. And both ⟨Jesus⟩ was called, and his dis­ci­ples, to the marriage.
  3. And when they want­ed wine, the moth­er of ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, They have no wine.
  4. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Wom­an, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
  5. His moth­er sa­ith un­to the serv­ants, What­so­ever he sa­ith un­to you, do it.
  6. And there were set there six wa­ter­pots of stone, af­ter the man­ner of the pur­i­fy­ing of the Jews, con­tain­ing two or three fir­kins apiece.
  7. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Fill the wa­ter­pots with wa­ter. And they filled them up to the brim.
  8. And he sa­ith un­to them, Draw out now, and bear un­to the gov­er­nor of the feast. And they bare it.
  9. When the rul­er of the feast had tast­ed the wa­ter that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the serv­ants which drew the wa­ter knew;) the gov­er­nor of the feast called the bridegroom,
  10. And sa­ith un­to him, Ev­ery man at the be­gin­ning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine un­til now.
  11. This be­gin­ning of mir­a­cles did ⟨Jesus⟩ in Cana of Gal­i­lee, and man­i­fest­ed forth his glo­ry; and his dis­ci­ples be­lieved on him.
  12. After this he went down to Ca-‍per-‍na-‍um, he, and his moth­er, and his breth­ren, and his dis­ci­ples: and they con­tin­ued there not ma­ny days.
  13. And the Jews’ pass­over was at hand, and ⟨Jesus⟩ went up to Jerusalem,
  14. And found in the tem­ple those that sold ox­en and sheep and doves, and the chang­ers of mon­ey sitting:
  15. And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the tem­ple, and the sheep, and the ox­en; and poured out the chang­ers’ mon­ey, and over­threw the tables;
  16. And said un­to them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Fa­ther’s house an house of merchandise.
  17. And his dis­ci­ples re­mem­bered that it was writ­ten, The zeal of thine house hath eat­en me up.
  18. Then an­swered the Jews and said un­to him, What sign shew­est thou un­to us, see­ing that thou do­est these things?
  19. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to them, De­stroy this tem­ple, and in three days I will raise it up.
  20. Then said the Jews, For­ty and six years was this tem­ple in build­ing, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
  21. But he spake of the tem­ple of his body.
  22. When there­fore he was ris­en from the dead, his dis­ci­ples re­mem­bered that he had said this un­to them; and they be­lieved the scrip­ture, and the word which ⟨Jesus⟩ had said.
  23. Now when he was in Je­ru­sa­lem at the pass­over, in the feast day, ma­ny be­lieved in his name, when they saw the mir­a­cles which he did.
  24. But ⟨Jesus⟩ did not com­mit him­self un­to them, be­cause he knew all men.
  25. And need­ed not that any should tes­ti­fy of man: for he knew what was in man.
Chapter Three
  1. THERE was a man of the Phar­i­sees, named Nic-‍o-‍de-‍mus, a rul­er of the Jews:
  2. The same came to ⟨Jesus⟩ by night, and said un­to him, Rab­bi, we know that thou art a teach­er come from ⟨God⟩: for no man can do these mir­a­cles that thou do­est, ex­cept ⟨God⟩ be with him.
  3. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to thee, Ex­cept a man be born again, he can­not see the king­dom of ⟨God⟩.
  4. Nic-‍o-‍de-‍mus sa­ith un­to him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he en­ter the sec­ond time in­to his moth­er’s womb, and be born?
  5. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to thee, Ex­cept a man be born of wa­ter and of the Spir­it, he can­not en­ter in­to the king­dom of ⟨God⟩.
  6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spir­it is spirit.
  7. Marvel not that I said un­to thee, Ye must be born again.
  8. The wind blow­eth where it list­eth, and thou hear­est the sound there­of, but canst not tell whence it com­eth, and whith­er it go­eth: so is ev­ery one that is born of the Spirit.
  9. Nic-‍o-‍de-‍mus an­swered and said un­to him, How can these things be?
  10. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, Art thou a mas­ter of Is­ra­el, and know­est not these things?
  11. Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to thee, We speak that we do know, and tes­ti­fy that we have seen; and ye re­ceive not our witness.
  12. If I have told you earth­ly things, and ye be­lieve not, how shall ye be­lieve, if I tell you of heav­en­ly things?
  13. And no man hath as­cend­ed up to heav­en, but he that came down from heav­en, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
  14. And as Mo­ses lift­ed up the ser­pent in the wil­der­ness, even so must the Son of man be lift­ed up.
  15. That who­so­ever be­liev­eth in him should not per­ish, but have eter­nal life.
  16. For ⟨God⟩ so loved the world, that he gave his on­ly be­got­ten Son, that who­so­ever be­liev­eth in him should not per­ish, but have ever­last­ing life.
  17. For ⟨God⟩ sent not his Son in­to the world to con­demn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
  18. He that be­liev­eth on him is not con­demned: but he that be­liev­eth not is con­demned al­rea­dy, be­cause he hath not be­lieved in the name of the on­ly be­got­ten Son of ⟨God⟩.
  19. And this is the con­dem­na­tion, that light is come in­to the world, and men loved dark­ness rath­er than light, be­cause their deeds were evil.
  20. For ev­ery one that do­eth evil hat­eth the light, nei­ther com­eth to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
  21. But he that do­eth truth com­eth to the light, that his deeds may be made man­i­fest, that they are wrought in ⟨God⟩.
  22. After these things came ⟨Jesus⟩ and his dis­ci­ples in­to the land of Ju-‍dæ-‍a; and there he tar­ried with them, and baptized.
  23. And John al­so was bap­tiz­ing in Ae-‍non near to Sa-‍lim, be­cause there was much wa­ter there: and they came, and were baptized.
  24. For John was not yet cast in­to prison.
  25. Then there arose a ques­tion be­tween some of John’s dis­ci­ples and the Jews about purifying.
  26. And they came un­to John, and said un­to him, Rab­bi, he that was with thee be­yond Jor­dan, to whom thou bar­est wit­ness, be­hold, the same bap­tiz­eth, and all men come to him.
  27. John an­swered and said, A man can re­ceive noth­ing, ex­cept it be giv­en him from heaven.
  28. Ye your­selves bear me wit­ness, that I said, I am not the ⟨Christ⟩, but that I am sent be­fore him.
  29. He that hath the bride is the bride­groom: but the friend of the bride­groom, which stand­eth and hear­eth him, re­joic­eth great­ly be­cause of the bride­groom’s voice: this my joy there­fore is fulfilled.
  30. He must in­crease, but I must decrease.
  31. He that com­eth from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earth­ly, and speak­eth of the earth: he that com­eth from heav­en is above all.
  32. And what he hath seen and heard, that he tes­ti­fi­eth; and no man re­ceiv­eth his testimony.
  33. He that hath re­ceived his tes­ti­mo­ny hath set to his seal that ⟨God⟩ is true.
  34. For he whom ⟨God⟩ hath sent speak­eth the words of ⟨God⟩: for ⟨God⟩ giv­eth not the Spir­it by mea­sure un­to him.
  35. The Fa­ther lov­eth the Son, and hath giv­en all things in­to his hand.
  36. He that be­liev­eth on the Son hath ever­last­ing life: and he that be­liev­eth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of ⟨God⟩ abid­eth on him.
Chapter Four
  1. WHEN there­fore the ⟨Lord⟩ knew how the Phar­i­sees had heard that ⟨Jesus⟩ made and bap­tized more dis­ci­ples than John,
  2. (Though ⟨Jesus⟩ him­self bap­tized not, but his disciples,)
  3. He left Ju-‍dæ-‍a, and de­part­ed again in­to Galilee.
  4. And he must needs go through Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍a.
  5. Then com­eth he to a city of Sa-‍ma‍-‍ri-‍a, which is called Sy-‍char, near to the par­cel of ground that Ja­cob gave to his son Joseph.
  6. Now Ja­cob’s well was there. ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore, be­ing wear­ied with his jour­ney, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
  7. There com­eth a wom­an of Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍a to draw wa­ter: ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Give me to drink.
  8. (For his dis­ci­ples were gone away un­to the city to buy meat.)
  9. Then sa­ith the wom­an of Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍a un­to him, How is it that thou, be­ing a Jew, ask­est drink of me, which am a wom­an of Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍a? for the Jews have no deal­ings with the Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍tans.
  10. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to her, If thou knew­est the gift of ⟨God⟩, and who it is that sa­ith to thee, Give me to drink; thou would­est have asked of him, and he would have giv­en thee liv­ing water.
  11. The wom­an sa­ith un­to him, Sir, thou hast noth­ing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that liv­ing water?
  12. Art thou great­er than our fa­ther Ja­cob, which gave us the well, and drank there­of him­self, and his chil­dren, and his cattle?
  13. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to her, Who­so­ever drink­eth of this wa­ter shall thirst again:
  14. But who­so­ever drink­eth of the wa­ter that I shall give him shall nev­er thirst; but the wa­ter that I shall give him shall be in him a well of wa­ter spring­ing up in­to ever­last­ing life.
  15. The wom­an sa­ith un­to him, Sir, give me this wa­ter, that I thirst not, nei­ther come hith­er to draw.
  16. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Go, call thy hus­band, and come hither.
  17. The wom­an an­swered and said, I have no hus­band. ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
  18. For thou hast had five hus­bands; and he who thou now hast is not thy hus­band: in that saidst thou truly.
  19. The wom­an sa­ith un­to him, Sir, I per­ceive that thou art a prophet.
  20. Our fa­thers wor­shipped in this moun­tain; and ye say, that in Je­ru­sa­lem is the place where men ought to worship.
  21. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Wom­an, be­lieve me, the hour com­eth, when ye shall nei­ther in this moun­tain, nor yet at Je­ru­sa­lem, wor­ship the Father.
  22. Ye wor­ship ye know not what: we know what we wor­ship: for sal­va­tion is of the Jews.
  23. But the hour com­eth, and now is, when the true wor­ship­pers shall wor­ship the Fa­ther in spir­it and in truth: for the Fa­ther seek­eth such to wor­ship him.
  24. ⟨God⟩ is a Spir­it: and they that (earn­est­ly) wor­ship him must wor­ship him in spir­it and in truth.
  25. The wom­an sa­ith un­to him, I know that Mes-‍si-‍as com­eth, which is called ⟨Christ⟩: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
  26. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, I that speak un­to thee am he.
  27. And up­on this came his dis­ci­ples, and mar­velled that he talked with the wom­an: yet no man said, What seek­est thou? or, Why talk­est thou with her?
  28. The wom­an then left her wa­ter­pot, and went her way in­to the city, and sa­ith to the men,
  29. Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the ⟨Christ⟩?
  30. They they went out of the city, and came un­to him.
  31. In the mean while his disci­ples prayed him, say­ing, Mas­ter, eat.
  32. But he said un­to them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
  33. Therefore said the dis­ci­ples one to an­oth­er, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
  34. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to fin­ish his work.
  35. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then com­eth har­vest? be­hold, I say un­to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields: for they are white al­rea­dy to harvest.
  36. And he that reap­eth re­ceiv­eth wag­es, and gath­er­eth fruit un­to life eter­nal: that both he that sow­eth and he that reap­eth may re­joice together.
  37. And here­in is that say­ing true, One sow­eth, and an­oth­er reapeth.
  38. I sent you to reap that where­on ye be­stowed no la­bour: oth­er men la­boured, and ye are en­tered in­to their labours.
  39. And ma­ny of the Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍tans of that city be­lieved on him for the say­ing of the wom­an, which tes­ti­fied, He told me all that ever I did.
  40. So when the Sa-‍ma-‍ri-‍tans were come un­to him, they be­sought him that he would tar­ry with them: and he abode there two days.
  41. And ma­ny more be­lieved be­cause of his own word;
  42. And said un­to the wom­an, Now we be­lieve, not be­cause of thy say­ing; for we have heard him our­selves, and know that this is in­deed the ⟨Christ⟩, the Sa­viour of the world.
  43. Now af­ter two days he de­part­ed thence, and went in­to Galilee.
  44. For ⟨Jesus⟩ him­self tes­ti­fied, that a proph­et hath no hon­our in his own country.
  45. Then when he was come in­to Gal­i­lee, the Gal-‍i-‍læ-‍ans re­ceived him, hav­ing seen all the things that he did at Je­ru­sa­lem at the feast: for they al­so went un­to the feast.
  46. So ⟨Jesus⟩ came again in­to Cana of Gal­i­lee, where he made the wa­ter wine. And there was a cer­tain no­ble­man, whose son was sick at Ca-‍per-‍na-‍um.
  47. When he heard that ⟨Jesus⟩ was come out of Ju-‍dæ-‍a in­to Gal­i­lee, he went un­to him, and be­sought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
  48. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to him, Ex­cept ye see signs and won­ders, ye will not believe.
  49. The no­ble­man sa­ith un­to him, Sir, come down ere my child die(s).
  50. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, Go thy way; thy son liv­eth. And the man be­lieved the word that ⟨Jesus⟩ had spok­en un­to him, and he went his way.
  51. And as he was now go­ing down, his serv­ants met him, and told him, say­ing, Thy son liveth.
  52. Then en­quired he of them the hour when he be­gan to amend. And they said un­to him, Yes­ter­day at the sev­enth hour the fe­ver left him.
  53. So the fa­ther knew that it was at the same hour, in the which ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to him, (“)Thy son liv­eth(.): and him­self be­lieved, and his whole house.
  54. This is again the sec­ond mir­a­cle that ⟨Jesus⟩ did, when he was come out of Ju-‍dæ-‍a in­to Galilee.
Chapter Five
  1. AFTER this there was a feast of the Jews; and ⟨Jesus⟩ went up to Jerusalem.
  2. Now there is at Je­ru­sa­lem by the sheep mar­ket a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Be-‍thes‍‍-‍da, hav­ing five porches.
  3. In these lay a great mul­ti­tude of im­po­tent folk, of blind, halt, with­ered, wait­ing for the mov­ing of the water.
  4. For an an­gel went down at a cer­tain sea­son in­to the pool, and trou­bled the wa­ter: who­so­ever then first af­ter the trou­bl­ing of the wa­ter stepped in was made whole of what­so­ever dis­ease he had.
  5. And a cer­tain man was there, which had an in­firm­ity thir­ty and eight years.
  6. When ⟨Jesus⟩ saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he sa­ith un­to him, Wilt thou be made whole?
  7. The im­po­tent man an­swered him, Sir, I have no man, when the wa­ter is trou­bled, to put me in­to the pool: but while I am com­ing, an­oth­er step­peth down be­fore me.
  8. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
  9. And im­me­di­ate­ly the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
  10. The Jews there­fore said un­to him that was cured, It is the sab­bath day: it is not law­ful for thee to carry thy bed.
  11. He an­swered them, He that made me whole, the same said un­to me, (“)Take up thy bed, and walk.()
  12. Then asked they him, What man is that which said un­to thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
  13. And he that was healed wist not who it was: for ⟨Jesus⟩ had con­veyed him­self away, a mul­ti­tude be­ing in that place.
  14. Afterward ⟨Jesus⟩ find­eth him in the tem­ple, and said un­to him, Be­hold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come un­to thee.
  15. The man de­part­ed, and told the Jews that it was ⟨Jesus⟩, which had made him whole.
  16. And there­fore did the Jews per­se­cute ⟨Jesus⟩, and sought to slay him, be­cause he had done these things on the sab­bath day.
  17. But ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, My Fa­ther work­eth hith­er­to, and I work.
  18. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, be­cause he not on­ly had brok­en the sab­bath, but said al­so that ⟨God⟩ was his Fa­ther, mak­ing him­self equal with ⟨God⟩.
  19. Then an­swered ⟨Jesus⟩ and said un­to them, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, The Son can do noth­ing of him­self, but what he seeth the Fa­ther do: for what things so­ever he do­eth, these al­so do­eth the Son likewise.
  20. For the Fa­ther lov­eth the Son, and shew­eth him all things that him­self do­eth: and he will shew him great­er works than these, that ye may marvel.
  21. For as the Fa­ther rais­eth up the dead, and quick­en­eth them; even so the Son quick­en­eth whom he will.
  22. For the Fa­ther judg­eth no man, but hath com­mit­ted all judg­ment un­to the Son:
  23. That all men should hon­our the Son, even as they hon­our the Fa­ther. He that hon­our­eth not the Son hon­our­eth not the Fa­ther which hath sent him.
  24. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, He that hear­eth my word, and be­liev­eth on him that sent me, hath ever­last­ing life, and shall not come in­to con­dem­na­tion; but is passed from death un­to life.
  25. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, The hour is com­ing, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of ⟨God⟩: and they that hear shall live.
  26. For as the Fa­ther hath life in him­self; so hath he giv­en to the Son to have life in himself.
  27. And hath giv­en him au­thor­ity to ex­e­cute judg­ment al­so, be­cause he is the Son of man.
  28. Marvel not at this: for the hour is com­ing, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
  29. And shall come forth; they that have done good, un­to the re­sur­rec­tion of life; and that that have done evil, un­to the re­sur­rec­tion of damnation.
  30. I can of mine own self do noth­ing: as I hear, I judge: and my judg­ment is just; be­cause I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Fa­ther which hath sent me.
  31. If I bear wit­ness of my­self, my wit­ness is not true.
  32. There is an­oth­er that bear­eth wit­ness of me; and I know that the wit­ness which he wit­ness­eth of me is true.
  33. Ye sent un­to John, and he bare wit­ness un­to the truth.
  34. But I re­ceive not tes­ti­mo­ny from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
  35. He was a burn­ing and a shin­ing light: and ye were will­ing for a sea­son to re­joice in his light.
  36. But I have great­er wit­ness than that of John: for the works which the Fa­ther hath giv­en me to fin­ish, the same works that I do, bear wit­ness of me, that the Fa­ther hath sent me.
  37. And the Fa­ther him­self, which hath sent me, hath borne wit­ness of me. Ye have nei­ther heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
  38. And ye have not his word abid­ing in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye be­lieve not.
  39. Search the scrip­tures; for in them ye think ye have eter­nal life: and they are they which tes­ti­fy of me.
  40. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
  41. I re­ceive not hon­our from men.
  42. But I know you, that ye have not the love of ⟨God⟩ in you.
  43. I am come in my Fa­ther’s name, and ye re­ceive me not: if an­oth­er shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
  44. How can ye be­lieve, which re­ceive hon­our one of an­oth­er, and seek not the hon­our that com­eth from ⟨God⟩ only?
  45. Do not think that I will ac­cuse you to the Fa­ther: there is one that ac­cus­eth you, one Mo­ses, in whom ye trust.
  46. For had ye be­lieved Mo­ses, ye would have be­lieved me: for he wrote of me.
  47. But if ye be­lieve not his writ­ings, how shall ye be­lieve my words?
Chapter Six
  1. AFTER these things ⟨Jesus⟩ went ov­er the sea of Gal­i­lee, which is the sea of Ti-‍be-‍ri-‍as.
  2. And a great mul­ti­tude fol­lowed him, be­cause they saw his mir­a­cles which he did on them that were diseased.
  3. And ⟨Jesus⟩ went up in­to a moun­tain, and there he sat with his disciples.
  4. And the pass­over, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
  5. When ⟨Jesus⟩ then lift­ed up his eyes, and saw a great com­pa­ny come un­to him, he sa­ith un­to Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
  6. And this he said to prove him: for he him­self knew what he would do.
  7. Philip an­swered him, Two hun­dred pen­ny­worth of bread is not suf­fi­cient for them, that ev­ery one of them may take a little.
  8. One of his dis­ci­ples, An­drew, Si­mon Pe­ter’s broth­er, sa­ith un­to him,
  9. There is a lad here, which hath five bar­ley loaves, and two small fish­es: but what are they among so many?
  10. And ⟨Jesus⟩ said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in num­ber about five thousand.
  11. And ⟨Jesus⟩ took the loaves; and when he had giv­en thanks, he dis­trib­ut­ed to the dis­ci­ples, and the dis­ci­ples to them that were set down; and like­wise of the fish­es as much as they would.
  12. When they were filled, he said un­to his dis­ci­ples, Gath­er up the frag­ments that re­main, that noth­ing be lost.
  13. Therefore they gath­ered them to­geth­er, and filled twelve bas­kets with the frag­ments of the five bar­ley loaves, which re­mained over and above un­to them that had eaten.
  14. Then those men, when they had seen the mir­a­cle that ⟨Jesus⟩ did, said, This is of a truth that proph­et that should come in­to the world.
  15. When ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore per­ceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he de­part­ed again in­to a moun­tain him­self alone.
  16. And when even was now come, his dis­ci­ples went down un­to the sea,
  17. And en­tered in­to a ship, and went over the sea to­ward Ca-‍per-‍na-‍um. And it was now dark, and ⟨Jesus⟩ was not come to them.
  18. And the sea arose by rea­son of a great wind that blew.
  19. So when they had rowed about five and twen­ty or thir­ty fur­longs, they see ⟨Jesus⟩ walking on the sea, and draw­ing nigh un­to the ship: and they were afraid.
  20. But he sa­ith un­to them, It is I, be not afraid.
  21. Then they will­ing­ly re­ceived him in­to the ship: and im­me­di­ate­ly the ship was at the land whith­er they went.
  22. The day fol­low­ing, when the peo­ple which stood on the oth­er side of the sea saw that there was none oth­er (lit­tle) boat there, save that one where­in­to his dis­ci­ples were en­tered, and that ⟨Jesus⟩ went not with his dis­ci­ples in­to the boat, but that his dis­ci­ples were gone away alone;
  23. (Howbeit there came oth­er boats from Ti-‍be-‍ri-‍as nigh un­to the place where they did eat bread, af­ter that the ⟨Lord⟩ had giv­en thanks:)
  24. When the peo­ple there­fore saw that ⟨Jesus⟩ was not there, nei­ther his dis­ci­ples, they al­so took ship­ping and came to Ca-‍per-‍na-‍um, seek­ing for ⟨Jesus⟩.
  25. And when they had found him on the oth­er side of the sea, they said un­to him, Rab­bi, when cam­est thou hither?
  26. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them and said, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Ye seek me, not be­cause ye saw the mir­a­cles, but be­cause ye did eat of the loaves and were filled.
  27. Labour not for the meat which per­ish­eth, but for that meat which en­dur­eth un­to ever­last­ing life, which the Son of man shall give un­to you: for him hath ⟨God⟩ the Fa­ther sealed.
  28. Then said they un­to him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of ⟨God⟩?
  29. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to them, This is the work of ⟨God⟩, that ye be­lieve on him whom he hath sent.
  30. They said there­fore un­to him, What sign shew­est thou then, that we may see, and be­lieve thee? what dost thou work?
  31. Our fa­thers did eat man-‍na in the des­ert; as it is writ­ten, He gave them bread from heav­en to eat.
  32. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Mo­ses gave you not that bread from heav­en; but my Fa­ther giv­eth you the true bread from heaven.
  33. For the bread of ⟨God⟩ is he which com­eth down from heav­en, and giv­eth life un­to the world.
  34. Then said they un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, ever­more give us this bread.
  35. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, I am the bread of life: he that com­eth to me shall nev­er hun­ger; and he that be­liev­eth on me shall nev­er thirst.
  36. But I said un­to you, That ye al­so have seen me, and be­lieve not.
  37. All that the Fa­ther giv­eth me shall come to me; and him that com­eth to me I will in no wise cast out.
  38. For I came down from heav­en, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
  39. And this is the Fa­ther’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath giv­en me I should lose noth­ing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
  40. And this is the will of him that sent me, that ev­ery one which seeth the Son, and be­liev­eth on him, may have ever­last­ing life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
  41. The Jews then mur­mured at him, be­cause he said, (“)I am the bread which came down from heaven.()
  42. And they said, Is not this ⟨Jesus⟩, the son of Jo­seph, whose fa­ther and moth­er we know? how is it then that he sa­ith, I came down from heaven?
  43. ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore an­swered and said un­to them, Mur­mur not among yourselves.
  44. No man can come to me, ex­cept the Fa­ther draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
  45. It is writ­ten in the proph­ets, And they shall be all taught of ⟨God⟩. Ev­ery man there­fore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Fa­ther, com­eth un­to me.
  46. Not that any man hath seen the Fa­ther, save he which is of ⟨God⟩, he hath seen the Father.
  47. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, He that be­liev­eth on me hath ever­last­ing life.
  48. I am that bread of life.
  49. Your fa­thers did eat man-‍na in the wil­der­ness, and are dead.
  50. This is the bread which com­eth down from heav­en, that a man may eat there­of, and not die.
  51. I am the liv­ing bread which came down from heav­en: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
  52. The Jews there­fore strove among them­selves, say­ing, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
  53. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Ex­cept ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
  54. Whoso eat­eth my flesh, and drink­eth my blood, hath eter­nal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
  55. For my flesh is meat in­deed, and my blood is drink indeed.
  56. He that eat­eth my flesh, and drink­eth my blood, dwell­eth in me, and I in him.
  57. As the liv­ing Fa­ther hath sent me, and I live by the Fa­ther: so he that eat­eth me, even he shall live by me.
  58. This is that bread which came down from heav­en: not as your fa­thers did eat man-‍na, and are dead: he that eat­eth of this bread shall live for ever.
  59. These things said he in the syn­a­gogue, as he taught in Ca-‍per‍-‍na-‍um.
  60. Many there­fore of his dis­ci­ples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard say­ing; who can hear it?
  61. When ⟨Jesus⟩ knew in him­self that his dis­ci­ples mur­mured at it, he said un­to them, Doth this of­fend you?
  62. What and if ye shall see the Son of man as­cend up where he was before?
  63. It is the spirit that quick­en­eth; the flesh prof­it­eth noth­ing: the words that I speak un­to you, they are spir­it, and they are life.
  64. But there are some of you that be­lieve not. For ⟨Jesus⟩ knew from the be­gin­ning who they were that be­lieved not, and who should be­tray him.
  65. And he said, There­fore said I un­to you, that no man can come un­to me, ex­cept it were giv­en un­to him of my Father.
  66. From that time ma­ny of his dis­ci­ples went back, and walked no more with him.
  67. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to the twelve, Will ye al­so go away?
  68. Then Si­mon Pe­ter an­swered him, ⟨Lord⟩, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eter­nal life.
  69. And we be­lieve and are sure that thou art that ⟨Christ⟩, the Son of the liv­ing ⟨God⟩.
  70. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered then, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
  71. He spake of Ju­das Is-‍car-‍i-‍ot the son of Si­mon: for he it was that should be­tray him, be­ing one of the twelve.
Chapter Seven
  1. AFTER these things ⟨Jesus⟩ walked in Gal­i­lee: for he would not walk in Jew­ry, be­cause the Jews sought to kill him.
  2. Now the Jews’ feast of tab­er­na­cles was at hand.
  3. His breth­ren there­fore said unto him, De­part hence, and go in­to Ju-‍dæ-‍a, that thy dis­ci­ples al­so may see the works that thou doest.
  4. For there is no man that do­eth any thing in se­cret, and he him­self seek­eth to be known open­ly. If thou do these things, shew thy­self to the world.
  5. For nei­ther did his breth­ren be­lieve in him.
  6. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, My time is not yet come: but your time is al­way ready.
  7. The world can­not hate you; but me it hat­eth, be­cause I tes­ti­fy of it, that the works there­of are evil.
  8. Go ye up un­to this feast: I go not up yet un­to this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
  9. When he had said these words un­to them, he abode still in Gal­i­lee.
  10. But when his breth­ren were gone up, then went he al­so up un­to the feast, not open­ly, but as it were in secret.
  11. Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
  12. And there was much mur­mur­ing among the peo­ple con­cern­ing him: for some said, He is a good man: oth­ers said, Nay; but he de­ceiv­eth the people.
  13. Howbeit no man spake open­ly of him for fear of the Jews.
  14. Now about the midst of the feast ⟨Jesus⟩ went up in­to the tem­ple and taught.
  15. And the Jews mar­velled, say­ing, How know­eth this man let­ters, hav­ing nev­er learned?
  16. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, and said, My doc­trine is not mine, but his that sent me.
  17. If any man do his will, he shall know of the doc­trine, wheth­er it be of ⟨God⟩, or wheth­er I speak of myself.
  18. He that speak­eth of him­self seek­eth his own glo­ry: but he that seek­eth his glo­ry that sent him, the same is true, and no un­righ­teous­ness is in him.
  19. Did not Mo­ses give you the law, and yet none of you keep­eth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
  20. The peo­ple an­swered and said, Thou hast a dev­il: who go­eth about to kill thee?
  21. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
  22. Moses there­fore gave un­to you cir­cum­ci­sion; (not be­cause it is of Mo­ses, but of the fa­thers;) and ye on the sab­bath day cir­cum­cise a man.
  23. If a man on the sab­bath day re­ceive cir­cum­ci­sion, that the law of Mo­ses should not be brok­en; are ye an­gry at me, be­cause I have made a man ev­ery whit whole on the sab­bath day?
  24. Judge not ac­cord­ing to the ap­pear­ance, but judge righ­teous judgment.
  25. Then said some of them of Je­ru­sa­lem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
  26. But, lo, he speak­eth bold­ly, and they say noth­ing un­to him. Do the rul­ers know in­deed that this is the very ⟨Christ⟩?
  27. Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when ⟨Christ⟩ com­eth, no man know­eth whence he is.
  28. Then cried ⟨Jesus⟩ in the tem­ple as he taught, say­ing, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of my­self, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
  29. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
  30. Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, be­cause his hour was not yet come.
  31. And ma­ny of the peo­ple be­lieved on him, and said, When ⟨Christ⟩ com­eth, will he do more mir­a­cles than these which this man hath done?
  32. The Phar­i­sees heard that the peo­ple mur­mured such things con­cern­ing him; and the Phar­i­sees and the chief priests sent of­fi­cers to take him.
  33. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to them, Yet a lit­tle while am I with you, and then I go un­to him that sent me.
  34. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thith­er ye can­not come.
  35. Then said the Jews among them­selves, Whith­er will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go un­to the dis­persed among the Gen­tiles, and teach the Gen­tiles?
  36. What man­ner of say­ing is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am thith­er ye can­not come?
  37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, ⟨Jesus⟩ stood and cried, say­ing, If any man thirst, let him come un­to me, and drink.
  38. He that be­liev­eth on me, as the scrip­ture hath said, out of his bel­ly shall flow riv­ers of liv­ing water.
  39. (But this spake he of the Spir­it, which they that be­lieve on him should re­ceive: for the Holy ⟨Ghost⟩ was not yet giv­en; because that ⟨Jesus⟩ was not yet glorified.)
  40. Many of the peo­ple there­fore, when they heard this say­ing, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
  41. Others said, This is the ⟨Christ⟩. But some said, Shall ⟨Christ⟩ come out of Galilee?
  42. Hath not the scrip­ture said, That ⟨Christ⟩ com­eth of the seed of David, and out of the town of Beth‍-‍le-‍hem, where David was?
  43. So there was a di­vi­sion among the peo­ple be­cause of him.
  44. And some of them would have tak­en him; but no man laid hands on him.
  45. Then came the of­fi­cers to the chief priests and Phar­i­sees; and they said un­to them, Why have ye not brought him?
  46. The of­fi­cers an­swered, Nev­er man spake like this man.
  47. Then an­swered them the Phar­i­sees, Are ye al­so deceived?
  48. Have any of the rul­ers or of the Phar­i­sees be­lieved on him?
  49. But this peo­ple who know­eth not the law are cursed.
  50. Nic-‍o-‍de‍-‍mus sa­ith un­to them, (he that came to ⟨Jesus⟩ by night, be­ing one of them,)
  51. Doth our law judge any man, be­fore it hear him, and know what he doeth?
  52. They an­swered and said un­to him, Art thou al­so of Gal­i­lee? Search, and look: for out of Gal­i­lee aris­eth no prophet.
  53. And ev­ery man went un­to his own house.
Chapter Eight
  1. JESUS went un­to the mount of Olives.
  2. And ear­ly in the morn­ing he came again in­to the tem­ple, and all the peo­ple came un­to him; and he sat down, and taught them.
  3. And the scribes and Phar­i­sees brought un­to him a wom­an tak­en in adul­tery; and when they had set her in the midst,
  4. They say un­to him, Mas­ter, this wom­an was tak­en in adul­tery, in the very act.
  5. Now Mo­ses in the law com­mand­ed us, that such should be stoned: but what say­est thou?
  6. This they said, tempt­ing him, that they might have to ac­cuse him. But ⟨Jesus⟩ stooped down, and with his fin­ger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
  7. So when they con­tin­ued ask­ing him, he lift­ed up him­self, and said un­to them, He that is with­out sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
  8. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
  9. And they which heard it, be­ing con­vict­ed by their own con­science, went out one by one, be­gin­ning at the eld­est, even un­to the last: and ⟨Jesus⟩ was left alone, and the wom­an stand­ing in the midst.
  10. When ⟨Jesus⟩ had lift­ed up him­self, and saw none but the wom­an, he said un­to her, Wom­an, where are those thine ac­cus­ers? hath no man con­demned thee?
  11. She said, No man, ⟨Lord⟩. And ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to her, Nei­ther do I con­demn thee: go, and sin no more.
  12. Then spake ⟨Jesus⟩ again un­to them, say­ing, I am the light of the world: he that fol­low­eth me shall not walk in dark­ness, but shall have the light of life.
  13. The Phari­sees there­fore said un­to him, Thou bear­est rec­ord of thy­self; thy rec­ord is not true.
  14. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to them, Though I bear rec­ord of my­self, yet my rec­ord is true: for I know whence I came, and whith­er I go; but ye can­not tell whence I come, and whith­er I go.
  15. Ye judge af­ter the flesh; I judge no man.
  16. And yet if I judge, my judg­ment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Fa­ther that sent me.
  17. It is al­so writ­ten in your law, that the tes­ti­mo­ny of two men is true.
  18. I am one that bear wit­ness of my­self, and the Fa­ther that sent me bear­eth wit­ness of me.
  19. Then said they un­to him, Where is thy Fa­ther? ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Ye nei­ther know me, nor my Fa­ther: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Fa­ther also.
  20. These words spake ⟨Jesus⟩ in the trea­sury, as he taught in the tem­ple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
  21. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ again un­to them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whith­er I go, ye can­not come.
  22. Then said the Jews, Will he kill him­self? be­cause he sa­ith, (“)Whith­er I go, ye can­not come.()
  23. And he said un­to them, Ye are from be­neath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
  24. I said there­fore un­to you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye be­lieve not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
  25. Then said they un­to him, Who art thou? And ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Even the same that I said un­to you from the beginning.
  26. I have ma­ny things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
  27. They un­der­stood not that he spake to them of the Father (of all spirits).
  28. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to them, When ye have lift­ed up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do noth­ing of my­self; but as my Fa­ther hath taught me, I speak these things.
  29. And he that sent me is with me: the Fa­ther hath not left me alone; for I do al­ways those things that please him.
  30. As he spake these words, ma­ny be­lieved on him.
  31. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ to those Jews which be­lieved on him, If ye con­tin­ue in my word, then are ye my dis­ci­ples indeed;
  32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  33. They (the oth­er un­be­liev­ing Jews, al­so long in bond­age of sin, who had nei­ther in­cli­na­tion nor de­sire to be­lieve or un­der­stand) an­swered him, We be Abra­ham’s seed, and were nev­er in bond­age to any man: how say­est thou, (“)Ye shall be made free()?
  34. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Who­so­ever com­mit­teth sin is the serv­ant of sin.
  35. And the serv­ant abid­eth not in the house for ever: but the Son abid­eth ever.
  36. If the Son there­fore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
  37. I know that ye are Abra­ham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, be­cause my word hath no place in you.
  38. I speak that which I have seen with my Fa­ther: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
  39. They an­swered and said un­to him, Abra­ham is our fa­ther. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, If ye were Abra­ham’s chil­dren, ye would do the works of Abraham.
  40. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of ⟨God⟩: this did not Abraham.
  41. Ye do the deeds of your fa­ther. Then said they to him, We be not born of for­ni­ca­tion; we have one Fa­ther, even ⟨God⟩.
  42. ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, If ⟨God⟩ were your Fa­ther, ye would love me: for I pro­ceed­ed forth and came from ⟨God⟩; nei­ther came I of my­self, but he sent me.
  43. Why do ye not un­der­stand my speech? even be­cause ye can­not hear my word.
  44. Ye are of your fa­ther the dev­il, and the lusts of your fa­ther ye will do. He was a mur­der­er from the be­gin­ning, and abode not in the truth, be­cause there is no truth in him. When he speak­eth a lie, he speak­eth of his own: for he is a liar, and the fa­ther of it.
  45. And be­cause I tell you the truth, ye be­lieve me not.
  46. Which of you con­vinc­eth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not be­lieve me?
  47. He that is of ⟨God⟩ hear­eth ⟨God’s⟩ words: ye there­fore hear them not, be­cause ye are not of ⟨God⟩.
  48. Then an­swered the Jews, and said un­to him, Say we not well that thou art a Sa-‍mar‍-‍i-‍tan, and hast a devil?
  49. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, I have not a dev­il; but I hon­our my Fa­ther, and ye do dis­hon­our me.
  50. And I seek not mine own glo­ry: there is one that seek­eth and judgeth.
  51. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, If a man keep my say­ing, he shall nev­er see death.
  52. Then said the Jews un­to him, Now we know that thou hast a dev­il. Abra­ham is dead, and the proph­ets; and thou say­est, (“)If a man keep my say­ing, he shall nev­er see death.()
  53. Art thou great­er than our Fa­ther Abra­ham, which is dead? and the proph­ets are dead: whom mak­est thou thyself?
  54. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, If I hon­our my­self, my hon­our is noth­ing: it is my Fa­ther that hon­our­eth me; of whom ye say, that he is your ⟨God⟩:
  55. Yet ye have not known him, but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a li­ar like un­to you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
  56. Your fa­ther Abra­ham re­joiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
  57. Then said the Jews un­to him, Thou art not yet fif­ty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
  58. ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Be­fore Abra­ham was, I am.
  59. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but ⟨Jesus⟩ hid him­self, and went out of the tem­ple, go­ing through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Chapter Nine
  1. AND as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
  2. And his dis­ci­ples asked him, say­ing, Mas­ter, who did sin, this man, or his par­ents, that he was born blind?
  3. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Nei­ther hath this man sinned, nor his par­ents: but that the works of ⟨God⟩ should be made mani­fest in him.
  4. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night com­eth, when no man can work.
  5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
  6. When he had thus spok­en, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spit­tle, and he anoint­ed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
  7. And said un­to him, Go, wash in the pool of Si-‍lo‍-‍am(.), (which is by in­ter­pre­ta­tion, Sent.) He went his way there­fore, and washed, and came seeing.
  8. The neigh­bours there­fore, and they which be­fore had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
  9. Some said, This is he: oth­ers said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
  10. Therefore said they un­to him, How were thine eyes opened?
  11. He an­swered and said, A man that is called ⟨Jesus⟩ made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said un­to me, (“)Go to the pool of Si-‍lo‍-‍am, and wash(.): and I went and washed, and I re­ceived sight.
  12. Then said they un­to him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
  13. They brought to the Phar­i­sees him that afore­time was blind.
  14. And it was the sab­bath day when ⟨Jesus⟩ made the clay, and opened his eyes.
  15. Then again the Phari­sees al­so asked him how he had re­ceived his sight. He said un­to them, He put clay up­on my eyes, and I washed, and do see.
  16. Therefore said some of the Phar­i­sees, This man is not of ⟨God⟩, be­cause he keep­eth not the sab­bath day. Oth­ers said, How can a man that is a sin­ner do such mir­a­cles? And there was a di­vi­sion among them.
  17. They say un­to the blind man again, What say­est thou of him, that he hath op­ened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
  18. But the Jews did not be­lieve con­cern­ing him, that he had been blind, and re­ceived his sight, un­til they called the par­ents of him that had re­ceived his sight.
  19. And they asked them, say­ing, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
  20. His par­ents an­swered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
  21. But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath op­ened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
  22. These words spake his par­ents, be­cause they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed al­rea­dy, that if any man did con­fess that he was ⟨Christ⟩, he should be put out of the syn­a­gogue.
  23. Therefore said his par­ents, He is of age; ask him.
  24. Then again called they the man that was blind, and said un­to him, Give ⟨God⟩ the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
  25. He an­swered and said, Wheth­er he be a sin­ner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, where­as I was blind, now I see.
  26. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how op­ened he thine eyes?
  27. He an­swered them, I have told you al­rea­dy, and ye did not hear: where­fore would ye hear it again? will ye al­so be his disciples?
  28. Then they re­viled him, and said, Thou art his dis­ci­ple; but we are Mo­ses’ disciples.
  29. We know that ⟨God⟩ spake un­to Mo­ses: as for this fel­low, we know not from whence he is.
  30. The man an­swered and said un­to them, Why here­in is a mar­vel­lous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath op­ened mine eyes.
  31. Now we know that ⟨God⟩ hear­eth not sin­ners: but if any man be a wor­ship­per of ⟨God⟩, and do­eth his will, him he heareth.
  32. Since the world be­gan was it not heard that any man op­ened the eyes of one that was born blind.
  33. If this man were not of ⟨God⟩, he could do nothing.
  34. They an­swered and said un­to him, Thou was al­to­geth­er born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
  35. ⟨Jesus⟩ heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said un­to him, Dost thou be­lieve on the Son of ⟨God⟩?
  36. He an­swered and said, Who is he, ⟨Lord⟩, that I might be­lieve on him?
  37. And ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talk­eth with thee.
  38. And he said, ⟨Lord⟩, I be­lieve. And he wor­shipped him.
  39. And ⟨Jesus⟩ said, For judg­ment I am come in­to this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
  40. And some of the Phar­i­sees which were with him heard these words, and said un­to him, Are we blind also?
  41. ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; there­fore your sin remaineth.
Chapter Ten
  1. VERILY, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, He that en­ter­eth not by the door in­to the sheep­fold, but climb­eth up some oth­er way, the same is a thief and a robber.
  2. But he that en­ter­eth in by the door is the shep­herd of the sheep.
  3. To him the por­ter op­en­eth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he call­eth his own sheep by name, and lead­eth them out.
  4. And when he put­teth forth his own sheep, he goeth be­fore them, and the sheep fol­low him: for they know his voice.
  5. And a stran­ger will they not fol­low, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
  6. This par­a­ble spake ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to them; but they un­der­stood not what things they were which he spake un­to them.
  7. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to them again, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, I am the door of the sheep.
  8. All that ev­er came be­fore me are thieves and rob­bers: but the sheep did not hear them.
  9. I am the door; by me if any man en­ter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
  10. The thief com­eth not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to de­stroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
  11. I am the good shep­herd: the good shep­herd giv­eth his life for the sheep.
  12. But he that is an hire­ling, and not the shep­herd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf com­ing, and leav­eth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catch­eth them, and scat­ter­eth the sheep.
  13. The hire­ling fleeth, be­cause he is an hire­ling, and car­eth not for the sheep.
  14. I am the good shep­herd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
  15. As the Fa­ther know­eth me, even so know I the Fa­ther: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
  16. ⟨•And oth­er sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them al­so I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.•⟩
  17. Therefore doth my Fa­ther love me, be­cause I lay down my life, that I might take it (up) again.
  18. No man tak­eth it from me, but I lay it down of my­self. I have pow­er to lay it down, and I have pow­er to take it (up) again.This com­mand­ment have I re­ceived of my Father.
  19. There was a di­vi­sion there­fore among the Jews for these sayings.
  20. And many of them said, He hath a dev­il, and is mad; why hear ye him?
  21. Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a dev­il. Can a dev­il op­en the eyes of the blind?
  22. And it was at Je­ru­sa­lem the feast of the ded­i­ca­tion, and it was winter. []
  1. And ⟨Jesus⟩ walked in the tem­ple in Sol­o­mon’s porch.
  2. Then came the Jews round about him, and said un­to him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the ⟨Christ⟩, tell us plainly.
  3. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, I told you, and ye be­lieved not: the works that I do in my Fa­ther’s name, they bear wit­ness of me.
  4. But ye be­lieve not, be­cause ye are not of my sheep, as I said un­to you.
  5. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they fol­low me.
  6. And I give un­to them eter­nal life; and they shall nev­er per­ish, nei­ther shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
  7. My Fa­ther, which gave them me, is great­er than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Fa­ther’s hand.
  8. I and my Fa­ther are one.
  9. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
  10. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, Ma­ny good works have I shewed you from my Fa­ther; for which of those works do ye stone me?
  11. The Jews an­swered him, say­ing, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blas­phe­my; and be­cause that thou, be­ing a man, mak­est thy­self ⟨God⟩.
  12. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, Is it not writ­ten in your law, I said,Ye are gods?
  13. If he called them gods, un­to whom the word of ⟨God⟩ came, and the scrip­ture can­not be broken;
  14. Say ye of him, whom the Fa­ther hath sanc­ti­fied, and sent in­to the world, Thou blas­phem­est; be­cause I said, I am the Son of ⟨God⟩?
  15. If I do not the works of my Fa­ther, be­lieve me not.
  16. But if I do (them), though ye be­lieve not me, be­lieve the works: that ye may know, and be­lieve, that the Fa­ther is in me, and I in him.
  17. Therefore they sought again to take him: but he es­caped out of their hand.
  18. And went away again be­yond Jor­dan in­to the place where John at first bap­tized; and there he abode.
  19. And ma­ny re­sort­ed un­to him, and said, John did no mir­a­cle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
  20. And ma­ny be­lieved on him there.
Chapter Eleven
  1. NOW a cer­tain man was sick, named Laz-‍a-‍rus, of Beth-‍a-‍ny, the town of Mary and her sis­ter Martha.
  2. (It was that Mary which anointed the ⟨Lord⟩ with oint­ment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose broth­er Laz‍-‍a-‍rus was sick.)
  3. Therefore his sis­ters sent un­to him, say­ing, ⟨Lord⟩, be­hold, he whom thou lov­est is sick.
  4. When ⟨Jesus⟩ heard that, he said, This sick­ness is not un­to death, but for the glo­ry of ⟨God⟩, that the Son of ⟨God⟩ might be glo­ri­fied thereby.
  5. Now ⟨Jesus⟩ loved Mar­tha, and her sis­ter, and Laz‍-‍a-‍rus.
  6. When he had heard there­fore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
  7. Then af­ter that sa­ith he to his dis­ci­ples, Let us go in­to Ju-‍dæ-‍a again.
  8. His dis­ci­ples say un­to him, Mas­ter, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and go­est thou thith­er again?
  9. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stum­bleth not, be­cause he seeth the light of this world.
  10. But if a man walk in the night, he stum­bleth, be­cause there is no light in him.
  11. These things said he: and af­ter that he sa­ith un­to them, Our friend Laz‍-‍a-‍rus sleep­eth; but I go, that I may awake him out of his sleep.
  12. Then said his dis­ci­ples, ⟨Lord⟩, if he sleep, he shall do well.
  13. Howbeit ⟨Jesus⟩ spake of his death: but they thought that he had spok­en of tak­ing of rest in sleep.
  14. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to them plain­ly, Laz‍-‍a-‍rus is dead.
  15. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may be­lieve; never­the­less let us go un­to him.
  16. Then said Thom­as, which is called Did-‍y-‍mus, un­to his fel­low dis­ci­ples, Let us al­so go, that we may die with him.
  17. Then when ⟨Jesus⟩ came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
  18. Now Beth‍-‍a-‍ny was nigh un­to Je­ru­sa­lem, about fif­teen fur­longs off:
  19. And ma­ny of the Jews came to Mar­tha and Mary, to com­fort them con­cern­ing their brother.
  20. Then Mar­tha, as soon as she heard that ⟨Jesus⟩ was com­ing, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
  21. Then said Mar­tha un­to ⟨Jesus⟩, ⟨Lord⟩, if thou hadst been here, my broth­er had not died.
  22. But I know, that even now, what­so­ever thou wilt ask of ⟨God⟩, ⟨God⟩ will give it thee.
  23. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Thy broth­er shall rise again.
  24. Martha sa­ith un­to him, I know that he shall rise again in the re­sur­rec­tion at the last day.
  25. ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to her, I am the re­sur­rec­tion, and the life: he that be­liev­eth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
  26. And who­so­ever liv­eth and be­liev­eth in me shall never die. Be­liev­est thou this?
  27. She sa­ith un­to him, Yea, ⟨Lord⟩: I be­lieve that thou art the ⟨Christ⟩, the Son of ⟨God⟩, which should come in­to the world.
  28. And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sis­ter se­cret­ly, say­ing, The Mas­ter is come, and call­eth for thee.
  29. As soon as she heard that, she arose quick­ly, and came un­to him.
  30. Now ⟨Jesus⟩ was not yet come in­to the town, but was in that place where Mar­tha (had) met him.
  31. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and com­fort­ed her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up has­ti­ly and went out, fol­lowed her, say­ing, She go­eth un­to the grave to weep there.
  32. Then when Mary was come where ⟨Jesus⟩ was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, say­ing un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, if thou hadst been here, my broth­er had not died.
  33. When ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore saw her weep­ing, and the Jews al­so weep­ing which came with her, he groaned in the spir­it, and was troubled.
  34. And said, Where have ye laid him? They said un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, come and see.
  35. ⟨Jesus⟩ wept.
  36. Then said the Jews, Be­hold how he loved him!
  37. And some of them said, could not this man, which op­ened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
  38. ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore again groan­ing in him­self com­eth to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay up­on it.
  39. ⟨Jesus⟩ said, Take ye away the stone. Mar­tha, the sis­ter of him that was dead, sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, by this time he stink­eth: for he hath been dead four days.
  40. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Said I not un­to thee, that, if thou would­est be­lieve, thou should­est see the glo­ry of ⟨God⟩?
  41. Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And ⟨Jesus⟩ lift­ed up his eyes, and said, Fa­ther, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
  42. And I know that thou hear­est me al­ways: but be­cause of the peo­ple which stand by I said it, that they may be­lieve that thou hast sent me.
  43. And when he thus had spok­en, he cried with a loud voice, Laz‍-‍a-‍rus, come forth.
  44. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave­clothes: and his face was bound about with a nap­kin. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Loose him, and let him go.
  45. Then ma­ny of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which ⟨Jesus⟩ did, be­lieved on him.
  46. But some of them went their ways to the Phar­i­sees, and told them what things ⟨Jesus⟩ had done.
  47. Then gath­ered the chief priests and the Phar­i­sees a coun­cil, and said, What do we? for this man do­eth ma­ny miracles.
  48. If we let him thus alone, all men will be­lieve on him: and the Ro­mans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
  49. And one of them, named Ca‍-‍ia-‍phas, be­ing the high priest that same year, said un­to them, Ye know noth­ing at all,
  50. Nor con­sid­er that it is ex­pe­di­ent for us, that one man should die for the peo­ple, and that the whole na­tion per­ish not.
  51. And this spake he not of him­self: but be­ing high priest that year, he proph­e­sied that ⟨Jesus⟩ should die for that nation;
  52. And not for that na­tion on­ly, but that al­so he should gath­er to­geth­er in one the chil­dren of ⟨God⟩ that were scat­tered abroad.
  53. Then from that day forth they took coun­sel to­geth­er for to put him to death.
  54. ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore walked no more op­en­ly among the Jews; but went thence un­to a coun­try near to the wil­der­ness, in­to a city call E‍-‍phra-‍im, and there con­tin­ued with his disciples.
  55. And the Jews’ pass­over was nigh at hand: and ma­ny went out of the coun­try up to Je­ru­sa­lem be­fore the pass­over, to pur­i­fy themselves.
  56. Then sought they for ⟨Jesus⟩, and spake among them­selves, as they stood in the tem­ple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
  57. Now both the chief priests and the Phar­i­sees had giv­en a com­mand­ment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
Chapter Twelve
  1. THEN ⟨Jesus⟩ six days be­fore the pass­over came to Beth‍-‍a-‍ny where Laz‍-‍a-‍rus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
  2. There they made him a sup­per; and Mar­tha served: but Laz‍-‍a-‍rus was one of them that sat at the ta­ble with him.
  3. Then took Mary a pound of oint­ment of spike­nard, very cost­ly, and anointed the feet of ⟨Jesus⟩, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
  4. Then sa­ith one of his dis­ci­ples, Ju­das Is-‍car‍-‍i-‍ot, Si­mon’s son, which should be­tray him,
  5. Why was not this oint­ment sold for three hun­dred pence, and giv­en to the poor?
  6. This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but be­cause he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
  7. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩, Let her alone: against the day of my bu­ry­ing hath she kept this.
  8. For the poor al­ways ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
  9. Much peo­ple of the Jews there­fore knew that he was there: and they came not for ⟨Jesus’⟩ sake on­ly, but that they might see Laz‍-‍a-‍rus al­so, whom he had raised from the dead.
  10. But the chief priests con­sult­ed that they might put Laz‍-‍a-‍rus al­so to death;
  11. Because that by rea­son of him ma­ny of the Jews went away, and be­lieved on ⟨Jesus⟩.
  12. On the next day much peo­ple that were come to the feast, when they heard that ⟨Jesus⟩ was com­ing to Jerusalem,
  13. Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Ho­san­na: Bless­ed is the King of Is­ra­el that com­eth in the name of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  14. And ⟨Jesus⟩, when he had found a young ass, sat there­on; as it is written,
  15. Fear not, daugh­ter of Si‍-‍on: be­hold, thy King com­eth, sit­ting on an ass’s colt.
  16. These things un­der­stood not his dis­ci­ples at the first: but when ⟨Jesus⟩ was glo­ri­fied, then re­mem­bered they that these things were writ­ten of him, and that they had done these thing un­to him.
  17. The peo­ple there­fore that was with him when he called Laz‍-‍a-‍rus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
  18. For this cause the peo­ple al­so met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
  19. The Phar­i­sees there­fore said among them­selves, Per­ceive ye how ye pre­vail noth­ing? be­hold, the world is gone af­ter him.
  20. And there were cer­tain Greeks among them that came up to wor­ship at the feast:
  21. The same came there­fore to Phil­ip, which was of Beth-‍sa‍-‍i-‍da of Gal­i­lee, and de­sired him, say­ing, Sir we would see ⟨Jesus⟩.
  22. Philip com­eth and tell­eth An­drew: and again An­drew and Phil­ip tell ⟨Jesus⟩.
  23. And ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, say­ing, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
  24. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, Ex­cept a corn of wheat fall in­to the ground and die, it abid­eth alone: but if it die, it bring­eth forth much fruit.
  25. He that lov­eth his life shall lose it; and he that hat­eth his life in this world shall keep it un­to life eternal.
  26. If any man serve me, let him fol­low me; and where I am, there shall al­so my serv­ant be: if any man serve me, him will my Fa­ther honour.
  27. Now is my soul trou­bled; and what shall I say? Fa­ther, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I un­to this hour.
  28. Father, glo­ri­fy thy name. Then came there a voice from heav­en, say­ing, I have both glo­ri­fied it, and will glo­ri­fy it again.
  29. The peo­ple there­fore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thun­dered: oth­ers said, An an­gel spake to him.
  30. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said, This voice came not be­cause of me, but for your sakes.
  31. Now is the judg­ment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
  32. And I, if I be lift­ed up from the earth, will draw all men un­to me.
  33. This he said, sig­ni­fy­ing what death he should die.
  34. The peo­ple an­swered him, We have heard out of the law that ⟨Christ⟩ abid­eth for ever: and how say­est thou, (“)The son of man must be lift­ed up?() who is this Son of man?
  35. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ said un­to them, Yet a lit­tle while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest dark­ness come up­on you: for he that walk­eth in dark­ness know­eth not whith­er he goeth.
  36. While ye have light, be­lieve in the light, that ye may be the chil­dren of light. These things spake ⟨Jesus⟩, and de­part­ed, and did hide him­self from them.
  37. But though he had done so ma­ny mir­a­cles be­fore them, yet they be­lieved not on him:
  38. That the say­ing of E-‍sa‍-‍ias the proph­et might be ful­filled, which he spake, ⟨Lord⟩, who hath be­lieved our re­port? and to whom hath the arm of the ⟨Lord⟩ been revealed?
  39. Therefore they could not be­lieve, be­cause that E-‍sa‍-‍ias said again,
  40. He hath blind­ed their eyes, and hard­ened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor un­der­stand with their heart, and be con­vert­ed, and I should heal them.
  41. These things said E-‍sa‍-‍ias, when he saw his glo­ry, and spake of him.
  42. Nevertheless among the chief rul­ers al­so ma­ny be­lieved on him; but be­cause of the Phar­i­sees they did not con­fess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
  43. For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of ⟨God⟩.
  44. ⟨Jesus⟩ cried and said, He that be­liev­eth on me, be­liev­eth not on me, but on him that sent me.
  45. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
  46. I am come a light in­to the world, that who­so­ever be­liev­eth on me should not abide in darkness.
  47. And if any man hear my words, and be­lieve not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
  48. He that re­ject­eth me, and re­ceiv­eth not my words, hath one that judg­eth him: the word that I have spok­en, the same shall judge him in the last day.
  49. For I have not spok­en of my­self; but the Fa­ther which sent me, he gave me a com­mand­ment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
  50. And I know that his com­mand­ment is life ever­last­ing: what­so­ever I speak there­fore, even as the Fa­ther said un­to me, so I speak.
Chapter Thirteen
  1. NOW be­fore the feast of the pass­over, when ⟨Jesus⟩ knew his hour was come that he should de­part out of this world un­to the Fa­ther, hav­ing loved his own which were in the world, he loved them un­to the end.
  2. And sup­per be­ing end­ed, the dev­il hav­ing now put in­to the heart of Ju­das Is-‍car‍-‍i-‍ot, Si­mon’s son, to be­tray him;
  3. ⟨Jesus⟩ know­ing that the Fa­ther had giv­en all things in­to his hands, and that he was come from ⟨God⟩, and went to ⟨God⟩;
  4. He ris­eth from sup­per, and laid aside his gar­ments; and took a tow­el, and gird­ed himself.
  5. After that he pour­eth wa­ter in­to a bas­on, and be­gan to wash the dis­ci­ples’ feet, and to wipe them (dry) with the tow­el where­with he was girded.
  6. Then com­eth he to Si­mon Pe­ter: and Pe­ter sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, dost thou wash my feet?
  7. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, What I do thou know­est not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
  8. Peter sa­ith un­to him, Thou shalt nev­er wash my feet. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
  9. Simon Pe­ter sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, not my feet on­ly, but al­so my hands and my head.
  10. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith to him, He that is washed need­eth not save to wash his feet, but is clean ev­ery whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
  11. For he knew who should be­tray him; there­fore said he, Ye are not all clean.
  12. So af­ter he had washed their feet, and had tak­en his gar­ments, and was set down again, he said un­to them, Know ye what I have done to you?
  13. Ye call me Mas­ter and ⟨Lord⟩: and ye say well; for so I am.
  14. If I then, your ⟨Lord⟩ and Mas­ter, have washed your feet; ye al­so ought to wash one an­oth­er’s feet.
  15. For I have giv­en you an ex­am­ple, that ye should do as I have done to you.
  16. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, The serv­ant is not great­er than his lord; nei­ther he that is sent great­er then he that sent him.
  17. If ye know these things, hap­py are ye if ye do them.
  18. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chos­en: but that the scrip­ture may be ful­filled, He that eat­eth bread with me hath lift­ed up his heel against me.
  19. Now I tell you be­fore it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may be­lieve that I am he.
  20. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, He that re­ceiv­eth whom­so­ever I send re­ceiv­eth me: and he that re­ceiv­eth me re­ceiv­eth him that sent me.
  21. When ⟨Jesus⟩ had thus said, he was trou­bled in spir­it, and tes­ti­fied, and said, Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, that one of you shall be­tray me.
  22. Then the dis­ci­ples looked on on an­oth­er, doubt­ing of whom he spake.
  23. Now there was lean­ing on ⟨Jesus’⟩ bos­om one of his dis­ci­ples, whom ⟨Jesus⟩ loved.
  24. Simon Pe­ter there­fore beck­oned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
  25. He then ly­ing on ⟨Jesus’⟩ breast sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, who is it?
  26. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Ju­das Is-‍car‍-‍i-‍ot, the son of Simon.
  27. And af­ter the sop Sat­an en­tered in­to him, Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to him, That thou do­est, do quickly.
  28. Now no man at the ta­ble knew for what in­tent he spake this un­to him.
  29. For some of them thought, be­cause Ju­das had the bag, that ⟨Jesus⟩ had said un­to him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give some­thing to the poor.
  30. He then hav­ing re­ceived the sop went im­me­di­ate­ly out: and it was night.
  31. Therefore, when he was gone out, ⟨Jesus⟩ said, Now is the Son of man glo­ri­fied, and ⟨God⟩ is glo­ri­fied in him.
  32. If ⟨God⟩ be glo­ri­fied in him, ⟨God⟩ shall al­so glo­ri­fy him in him­self, and shall straight­way glo­ri­fy him.
  33. Little chil­dren, yet a lit­tle while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said un­to the Jews, Whith­er I go, ye can­not come; so now I say to you.
  34. A new com­mand­ment I give un­to you, That ye love one an­oth­er; as I have loved you, that ye al­so love one another.
  35. By this shall all men know that ye are my dis­ci­ples, if ye have love one to another.
  36. Simon Pe­ter said un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, whith­er go­est thou? ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, Whith­er I go, thou canst not fol­low me now; but thou shalt fol­low me afterwards.
  37. Peter said un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, why can­not I fol­low thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
  38. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast de­nied me thrice.
Chapter Fourteen
  1. LET not your heart be trou­bled: ye be­lieve in ⟨God⟩, be­lieve al­so in me.
  2. In my Fa­ther’s house are ma­ny man­sions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to pre­pare a place for you.
  3. And if I go and pre­pare a place for you, I will come again, and re­ceive you un­to my­self; that where I am, there ye may be also.
  4. And whith­er I go ye know, and the way ye know.
  5. Thomas sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, we know not whith­er thou go­est; and how can we know the way?
  6. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man com­eth un­to the Fa­ther, but by me.
  7. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Fa­ther al­so: and from hence­forth ye know him, and have seen him.
  8. Philip sa­ith un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, shew us the Fa­ther, and it suf­fic­eth us.
  9. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Fa­ther; and how say­est thou then, Shew us the Father?
  10. Believest thou not that I am in the Fa­ther, and the Fa­ther in me? the words that I speak un­to you I speak not of my­self: but the Fa­ther that dwell­eth in me, he do­eth the works.
  11. Believe me that I am in the Fa­ther, and the Fa­ther in me: or else be­lieve me for the very works’s sake.
  12. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, He that be­liev­eth on me, the works that I do shall he do al­so; and great­er works than these shall he do; be­cause I go un­to my Father.
  13. And what­so­ever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Fa­ther may be glo­ri­fied in the Son.
  14. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
  15. If ye love me, keep my com­mand­ments.
  16. And I will pray the Fa­ther, and he shall give you an­oth­er Com­fort­er, that he may abide with you for ever;
  17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world can­not re­ceive, be­cause it seeth him not, nei­ther know­eth him: but ye know him; for he dwell­eth with you, and shall be in you.
  18. I will not leave you com­fort­less: I will come to you.
  19. Yet a lit­tle while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: be­cause I live, ye shall live also.
  20. At that day ye shall know that I am in the Fa­ther, and ye in me, and I in you.
  21. He that hath my com­mand­ments, and keep­eth them, he it is that lov­eth me: and he that lov­eth me shall be loved of my Fa­ther, and I will love him, and will man­i­fest my­self to him.
  22. Judas sa­ith un­to him, not Is-‍car‍-‍i-‍ot, ⟨Lord⟩, how is it that thou wilt man­i­fest thy­self un­to us, and not un­to the world?
  23. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered and said un­to him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Fa­ther will love him, and we will come un­to him, and make our abode with him.
  24. He that lov­eth me not keep­eth not my say­ings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Fa­ther’s which sent me.
  25. These things have I spok­en un­to you, be­ing yet pres­ent with you.
  26. But the Com­fort­er, which is the Holy ⟨Ghost⟩, whom the Fa­ther will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your re­mem­brance, what­so­ever I have said un­to you.
  27. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give un­to you: not as the world giv­eth, give I un­to you. Let not your heart be trou­bled, nei­ther let it be afraid.
  28. Ye have heard how I said un­to you, I go away, and come again un­to you. If ye loved me, ye would re­joice, be­cause I said, I go un­to the Fa­ther: for my Fa­ther is great­er than I.
  29. And now I have told you be­fore it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
  30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world com­eth, and hath noth­ing in me.
  31. But that the world may know that I love the Fa­ther; and as the Fa­ther gave me com­mand­ment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
Chapter Fifteen
  1. I AM the true vine, and my Fa­ther is the husbandman.
  2. Every branch in me that bear­eth not fruit he tak­eth away: and ev­ery branch that bear­eth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
  3. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spok­en un­to you.
  4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch can­not bear fruit of it­self, ex­cept it abide in the vine; no more can ye, ex­cept ye abide in me.
  5. I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abid­eth in me, and I in him, the same bring­eth forth much fruit: for with­out me ye can do nothing.
  6. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is with­ered; and men gath­er them, and cast them in­to the fire, and they are burned (up).
  7. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done un­to you.
  8. Herein is my Fa­ther glo­ri­fied, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
  9. As the Fa­ther hath loved me, so have I loved you: con­tin­ue ye in my love.
  10. If ye keep my com­mand­ments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Fa­ther’s com­mand­ments, and abide in his love.
  11. These things have I spok­en un­to you, that my joy might re­main in you, and that your joy might be full.
  12. This is my com­mand­ment, That ye love one an­oth­er, as I have loved you.
  13. Great­er love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
  14. Ye are my friends, if ye do what­so­ever I com­mand you.
  15. Henceforth I call you not serv­ants; for the serv­ant know­eth not what his lord do­eth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Fa­ther I have made known un­to you.
  16. Ye have not chos­en me, but I have chos­en you, and or­dained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should re­main: that what­so­ever ye shall ask of the Fa­ther in my name, he may give it you.
  17. These things I com­mand you, that ye love one another.
  18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hat­ed me be­fore it hat­ed you.
  19. If ye were of the world, the would would love its own: but be­cause ye are not of the world, but I have chos­en you out of the world, there­fore the world hat­eth you.
  20. Remember the word that I said un­to you, The serv­ant is not great­er than his lord. If they have per­se­cut­ed me, they will al­so per­se­cute you; if they have kept my say­ing, they will keep your’s also.
  21. But all these things will they do un­to you for my name’s sake, be­cause they know not him that sent me.
  22. If I had not come and spok­en un­to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
  23. He that hat­eth me hat­eth my Fa­ther also.
  24. If I had not done among them the works which none oth­er man did, they had not sin: but now have they both seen and hat­ed both me and my Father.
  25. But this com­eth to pass, that the word might be ful­filled that is writ­ten in their law, They hat­ed me with­out a cause.
  26. But when the Com­fort­er is come, whom I will send un­to you from the Fa­ther, even the Spir­it of truth, which pro­ceed­eth from the Fa­ther, he shall tes­ti­fy of me.
  27. And ye al­so shall bear wit­ness, be­cause ye have been with me from the beginning.
Chapter Sixteen
  1. THESE things have I spok­en un­to you, that ye should not be offended.
  2. They shall put you out of the syn­a­gogues: yea, the time com­eth, that who­so­ever kill­eth you will think that he do­eth ⟨God⟩ service.
  3. And these things will they do un­to you, be­cause they have not known the Fa­ther, nor me.
  4. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may re­mem­ber that I told you of them. And these things I said not un­to you at the be­gin­ning, be­cause I was with you.
  5. But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you ask­eth me, whith­er go­est thou?
  6. But be­cause I have said these things un­to you, sor­row hath filled your heart.
  7. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is ex­pe­di­ent for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Com­fort­er will not come un­to you; but if I de­part, I will send him un­to you.
  8. And when he is come, he will re­prove the world of sin, and of righ­teous­ness, and of judgment.
  9. Of sin, be­cause they be­lieve not on me;
  10. Of righ­teous­ness, be­cause I go to my Fa­ther, and ye see me no more;
  11. Of judg­ment, be­cause the prince of this world is judged.
  12. I have yet ma­ny things to say un­to you, but ye can­not bear them now.
  13. Howbeit when he, the Spir­it of truth, is come, he will guide you in­to all truth: for he shall not speak of him­self, but what­so­ever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
  14. He shall glo­ri­fy me: for he shall re­ceive of mine, and shall shew it un­to you.
  15. All things that the Fa­ther hath are mine: there­fore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it un­to you.
  16. A lit­tle while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a lit­tle while, and ye shall see me, be­cause I go to the Father.
  17. Then said some of his dis­ci­ples among them­selves, What is this that he sa­ith un­to us, ()A lit­tle while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a lit­tle while, and ye shall see me(,) and, ()Be­cause I go to the Fa­ther()?
  18. They said there­fore, What is this that he saith, ()A lit­tle while()? we can­not tell what he saith.
  19. Now ⟨Jesus⟩ knew that they were de­sir­ous to ask him, and said un­to them, Do ye en­quire among your­selves of that I said, A lit­tle while and ye shall not see me: and again, a lit­tle while, and ye shall see me?
  20. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, That ye shall weep and la­ment, but the world shall re­joice: and ye shall be sor­row­ful, but your sor­row shall be turned in­to joy.
  21. A wom­an when she is in tra­vail hath sor­row, be­cause her hour is come: but as soon as she is de­livered of the child, she re­mem­ber­eth no more the an­guish, for joy that a man is born in­to the world.
  22. And ye now there­fore have sor­row: but I will see you again, and your heart shall re­joice, and your joy no man tak­eth from you.
  23. And in that day ye shall ask me noth­ing. Ver­i­ly, ver­i­ly, I say un­to you, What­so­ever ye shall ask the Fa­ther in my name, he will give it you.
  24. Hitherto have ye asked noth­ing in my name: ask, and ye shall re­ceive, that your joy may be full.
  25. These things have I spok­en un­to you in pro­verbs: but the time com­eth, when I shall no more speak un­to you in pro­verbs, but I shall shew you plain­ly of the Father.
  26. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not un­to you, that I will pray the Fa­ther for you:
  27. For the Fa­ther him­self lov­eth you, be­cause ye have loved me, and have be­lieved that I came out from ⟨God⟩.
  28. I came forth from the Fa­ther, and am come in­to the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
  29. His dis­ci­ples said un­to him, Lo, now speak­est thou plain­ly, and speak­est no proverb.
  30. Now are we sure that thou know­est all things, and need­est not that any man should ask thee: by this we be­lieve that thou cam­est forth from ⟨God⟩.
  31. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered them, Do ye now believe?
  32. Behold, the hour com­eth, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scat­tered, ev­ery man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, be­cause the Fa­ther is with me.
  33. These things I have spok­en un­to you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have trib­u­la­tion: but be of good cheer; I have over­come the world.
Chapter Seventeen
  1. THESE words spake ⟨Jesus⟩, and lift­ed up his eyes to heav­en, and said, Fa­ther, the hour is come; glo­ri­fy thy Son, that thy Son al­so may glor­i­fy thee:
  2. As thou hast giv­en him pow­er over all flesh, that he should give eter­nal life to as ma­ny as thou hast giv­en him.
  3. And this is life eter­nal, that they might know thee the only true ⟨God⟩, and ⟨Jesus⟩ ⟨Christ⟩, whom thou hast sent.
  4. I have glo­ri­fied thee on the earth: I have fin­ished the work which thou gav­est me to do.
  5. And now, O Fa­ther, glo­ri­fy thou me with thine own self with the glo­ry which I had with thee be­fore the world was.
  6. I have man­i­fest­ed thy name un­to the men which thou gav­est me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gav­est them me; and they have kept thy word.
  7. Now they have known that all things what­so­ever thou hast giv­en me are of thee.
  8. For I have giv­en un­to them the words which thou gav­est me; and they have re­ceived them, and have known sure­ly that I came out from thee, and they have be­lieved that thou didst send me.
  9. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast giv­en me; for they are thine.
  10. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glo­ri­fied in them.
  11. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Fa­ther, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast giv­en me, that they may be one, as we are.
  12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gav­est me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of per­di­tion; that the scrip­ture might be fulfilled.
  13. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy ful­filled in themselves.
  14. I have giv­en them thy word; and the world hath hat­ed them, be­cause they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
  15. I pray not that thou should­est take them out of the world, but that thou should­est keep them from the evil.
  16. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
  17. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
  18. As thou hast sent me in­to the world, even so have I sent them in­to the world.
  19. And for their sakes I sanc­ti­fy my­self, that they al­so might be sanc­ti­fied through the truth.
  20. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them al­so which shall be­lieve on me through their word;
  21. That they all may be one; as thou, Fa­ther, art in me, and I in thee, that they al­so may be one in us: that the world may be­lieve that thou hast sent me.
  22. And the glo­ry which thou gav­est me I have giv­en them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
  23. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made per­fect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
  24. Father, I will that they al­so, whom thou hast giv­en me, be with me where I am; that they may be­hold my glo­ry, which thou hast giv­en me: for thou lov­edst me be­fore the foun­da­tion of the world.
  25. O righ­teous Fa­ther, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
  26. And I have de­clared un­to them thy name, and will de­clare it: that the love where­with thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Chapter Eighteen
  1. WHEN ⟨Jesus⟩ had spok­en these words, he went forth with his dis­ci­ples ov­er the brook Ce-‍dron, where was a gar­den, in­to the which he en­tered, and his disciples.
  2. And Ju­das al­so, which be­trayed him, knew the place: for ⟨Jesus⟩ oft­times re­sort­ed thith­er with his disciples.
  3. Judas then, hav­ing re­ceived a band of men and of­fi­cers from the chief priests and Phar­i­sees, com­eth thith­er with lan­terns and torches and weapons.
  4. ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore, know­ing all things that should come up­on him, went forth, and said un­to them, Whom seek ye?
  5. They an­swered him, ⟨Jesus⟩ of Na­za­reth. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, I am he. And Ju­das al­so, which be­trayed him, stood with them.
  6. As soon then as he had said un­to them, ()I am he(), they went back­ward, and fell to the ground.
  7. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, ⟨Jesus⟩ of Nazareth.
  8. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, I have told you that I am he: if there­fore ye seek me, let these (oth­ers) go their way.
  9. That the say­ing might be ful­filled, which he spake, Of them which thou gav­est me have I lost none.
  10. Then Si­mon Pe­ter hav­ing a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s serv­ant, and cut off his right ear. The serv­ant’s name was Mal‍-‍chus.
  11. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ un­to Pe­ter, Put up thy sword in­to the sheath: the cup which my Fa­ther hath giv­en me, shall I not drink it?
  12. Then the band and the cap­tain and of­fi­cers of the Jews took ⟨Jesus⟩, and bound him,
  13. And led him away to An‍-‍nas first; for he was fa­ther in law to Ca‍-‍ia-‍phas, which was the high priest that same year.
  14. Now Ca‍-‍ia-‍phas was he, which gave coun­sel to the Jews, that it was ex­pe­di­ent that one man should die for the people.
  15. And Si­mon Pe­ter fol­lowed ⟨Jesus⟩, and so did an­oth­er dis­ci­ple: that dis­ci­ple was known un­to the high priest, and went in with ⟨Jesus⟩ in­to the pal­ace of the high priest.
  16. But Pe­ter stood at the door with­out. Then went out that oth­er dis­ci­ple, which was known un­to the high priest, and spake un­to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
  17. Then sa­ith the dam­sel that kept the door un­to Pe­ter, Art not thou al­so one of this man’s dis­ci­ples? He sa­ith, I am not.1
  18. And the serv­ants and of­fi­cers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed them­selves: and Pe­ter stood with them, and warmed himself.
  19. The high priest then asked ⟨Jesus⟩ of his dis­ci­ples, and of his doctrine.
  20. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, I spake op­en­ly to the world; I ever taught in the syn­a­gogue, and in the tem­ple, whith­er the Jews al­ways re­sort; and in se­cret have I said nothing.
  21. Why ask­est thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said un­to them: be­hold, they know what I said.
  22. And when he had thus spok­en, one of the of­fi­cers which stood by struck ⟨Jesus⟩ with the palm of his hand, say­ing, An­swer­est thou the high priest so?
  23. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, If I have spok­en evil, bear wit­ness of the evil: but if well, why smit­est thou me?
  24. Now An‍-‍nas had sent him bound un­to Ca‍-‍ia-‍phas the high priest.
  25. And Si­mon Pe­ter stood and warmed him­self. They said there­fore un­to him, Art not thou al­so one of this man’s dis­ci­ples? He de­nied it, and said, I am not.2
  26. One of the serv­ants of the high priest, be­ing his kins­man whose ear Pe­ter had cut off, sa­ith, Did not I see thee in the gar­den (of Geth­sem­a­ne) with him?
  27. Peter then de­nied again;3 and im­me­di­ate­ly the cock crew.
  28. Then led they ⟨Jesus⟩ from Ca‍-‍ia-‍phas un­to the hall of judg­ment: and it was ear­ly; and they them­selves went not in­to the judg­ment hall, lest they should be de­filed; but that they might might eat the passover.
  29. Pilate then went out un­to them, and said, What ac­cu­sa­tion bring ye against this man?
  30. They an­swered and said un­to him, If he were not a mal­e­fact­or, we would not have de­livered him up un­to thee.
  31. Then said Pi­late un­to them, Take ye him, and judge him ac­cord­ing to your law. The Jews there­fore said un­to him, It is not law­ful for us to put any man to death:
  32. That the say­ing of ⟨Jesus⟩ might be ful­filled, which he spake, sig­ni­fy­ing what death he should die.
  33. Then Pi­late en­tered in­to the judg­ment hall again, and called ⟨Jesus⟩, and said un­to him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
  34. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered him, Say­est thou this thing of thy­self, or did oth­ers tell it thee of me?
  35. Pilate an­swered, Am I a Jew? Thine own na­tion and the chief priests have de­liv­ered thee un­to me: what hast thou done?
  36. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, My king­dom is not of this world: if my king­dom were of this world, then would my serv­ants fight, that I should not be deliv­ered to the Jews: but now is my king­dom not from hence.
  37. Pilate there­fore said un­to him, Art thou a king then? ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Thou say­est that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I in­to the world, that I should bear wit­ness un­to the truth. Ev­ery one that is of the truth hear­eth my voice.
  38. Pilate sa­ith un­to him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again un­to the Jews, and sa­ith un­to them, I find in him no fault at all.
  39. But ye have a cus­tom, that I should re­lease un­to you one at the pass­over: will ye there­fore that I re­lease un­to you the King of the Jews?
  40. Then cried they all again, say­ing, Not this man, but Bar-‍ab‍-‍bas. Now Bar-‍ab‍-‍bas was a robber.
Chapter Nineteen
  1. THEN Pi­late there­fore took ⟨Jesus⟩, and scourged him.
  2. And the sol­diers platted(sic) a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a pur­ple robe.
  3. And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
  4. Pilate there­fore went forth again, and sa­ith un­to them, Be­hold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
  5. Then came ⟨Jesus⟩ forth, wear­ing the crown of thorns, and the pur­ple robe. And Pi­late sa­ith un­to them, Be­hold the man!
  6. When the chief priests there­fore and of­fi­cers saw him, they cried out, say­ing, Cru­ci­fy him, cru­ci­fy him. Pi­late sa­ith un­to them, Take ye him, and cru­ci­fy him: for I find no fault in him.
  7. The Jews an­swered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, be­cause he made him­self the Son of ⟨God⟩.
  8. When Pi­late there­fore heard that say­ing, he was the more afraid;
  9. And went again in­to the judg­ment hall, and sa­ith un­to ⟨Jesus⟩, Whence art thou? But ⟨Jesus⟩ gave him no answer.
  10. Then sa­ith Pi­late un­to him, Speak­est thou not un­to me? know­est thou not that I have pow­er to cru­ci­fy thee, and have pow­er to re­lease thee?
  11. ⟨Jesus⟩ an­swered, Thou could­est have no pow­er at all against me ex­cept it were giv­en thee from above: there­fore he that de­liv­ered me un­to thee hath the great­er sin.
  12. And from thence­forth Pi­late sought to re­lease him: but the Jews cried out, say­ing, If thou let this man go, thou art not Cæsar’s friend: who­so­ever mak­eth him­self a king speak­eth against Cæsar.
  13. When Pi­late there­fore heard that say­ing, he brought ⟨Jesus⟩ forth, and sat down in the judg­ment seat in a place that is called the Pave­ment, but in the Hebrew, Gab‍-‍ba-‍tha.
  14. And it was the prep­ar­a­tion of the pass­over, and about the sixth hour: and he sa­ith un­to the Jews, Be­hold your King!
  15. But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, cru­ci­fy him. Pi­late sa­ith un­to them, Shall I cru­ci­fy your King? The chief priests an­swered, We have no king but Cæsar.
  16. Then de­liv­ered he him there­fore un­to them to be cru­ci­fied. And they took ⟨Jesus⟩, and led him away.
  17. And he bear­ing his cross went forth in­to a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Gol‍-‍go-‍tha:
  18. Where they cru­ci­fied him, and two oth­er(s) with him, on ei­ther side one, and ⟨Jesus⟩ in the midst.
  19. And Pi­late wrote a ti­tle, and put it on the cross. And the writ­ing was, ⟨JESUS⟩ OF NAZ­AR­ETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
  20. This ti­tle then read ma­ny of the Jews: for the place where ⟨Jesus⟩ was cru­ci­fied was nigh to the city: and it was writ­ten in He­brew, and Greek, and Latin.
  21. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pi­late, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
  22. Pilate an­swered, What I have written I have written.
  23. Then the sol­diers, when they had cru­ci­fied ⟨Jesus⟩, took his gar­ments, and made four parts, to ev­ery sol­dier a part; and al­so his coat: now the coat was with­out seam, wov­en from the top throughout.
  24. They said there­fore among them­selves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scrip­ture might be ful­filled, which sa­ith, They part­ed my rai­ment among them, and for my ves­ture they did cast lots. These things there­fore the sol­diers did.
  25. Now there stood by the cross of ⟨Jesus⟩ his moth­er, and his moth­er’s sis­ter, Mary the wife of Cle‍-‍o-‍phas, and Mary Mag-‍da-‍le‍-‍ne.
  26. When ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore saw his moth­er, and the dis­ci­ple stand­ing by, whom he loved, he sa­ith un­to his moth­er, Wom­an, be­hold thy son!
  27. Then sa­ith he to the dis­ci­ple, Be­hold thy moth­er! And from that hour that dis­ci­ple took her un­to his own home.
  28. After this, ⟨Jesus⟩ know­ing that all things were now ac­com­plished, that the scrip­ture might be ful­filled, sa­ith, I thirst.
  29. Now there was set a ves­sel full of vin­e­gar: and they filled a spunge(sic) with vin­e­gar, and put it up­on hys­sop, and put it to his mouth.
  30. When ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore had re­ceived the vin­e­gar, he said, It is fin­ished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
  31. The Jews there­fore, be­cause it was the prep­a­ra­tion, that the bod­ies should not re­main up­on the sab­bath day, (for that sab­bath day was an high day,) be­sought Pi­late that their legs might be brok­en, and that they might be tak­en away.
  32. Then came the sol­diers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the oth­er which was cru­ci­fied with him.
  33. But when they came to ⟨Jesus⟩, and saw that he was dead al­rea­dy, they brake not his legs:
  34. But one of the sol­diers with a spear pierced his side, and forth­with came there out blood and water.
  35. And he that saw it bare rec­ord, and his rec­ord is true: and he know­eth that he sa­ith true, that ye might believe.
  36. For these things were done, that the scrip­ture should be ful­filled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
  37. And again an­oth­er scrip­ture sa­ith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
  38. And af­ter this Jo­seph of Ar-‍i-‍ma-‍thæ‍-‍a, be­ing a dis­ci­ple of ⟨Jesus⟩, but se­cret­ly for fear of the Jews, be­sought Pi­late that he might take away the body of ⟨Jesus⟩: and Pi­late gave him leave. He came there­fore, and took the body of ⟨Jesus⟩.
  39. And there came al­so Nic-‍o-‍de‍-‍mus, which at the first came to ⟨Jesus⟩ by night, and brought a mix­ture of myrrh and aloes, about an hun­dred pound weight.
  40. Then took they the body of ⟨Jesus⟩, and wound it in lin­en clothes with the spi­ces, as the man­ner of the Jews is to bury.
  41. Now in the place where he was cru­ci­fied there was a gar­den; and in the gar­den a new sep­ul­chre, where­in was nev­er man yet laid.
  42. There laid they ⟨Jesus⟩ there­fore be­cause of the Jews’ prep­a­ra­tion day; for the sep­ul­chre was nigh at hand.
Chapter Twenty
  1. THE first day of the week com­eth Mary Mag-‍da-‍le‍-‍ne early, when it was yet dark, un­to the sep­ul­chre, and seeth the stone tak­en away from the sep­ul­chre.
  2. Then she run­neth, and com­eth to Si­mon Pe­ter, and to the oth­er dis­ci­ple, whom ⟨Jesus⟩ loved, and sa­ith un­to them, They have tak­en away the ⟨Lord⟩ out of the sep­ul­chre, and we know not where they have laid him.
  3. Peter there­fore went forth, and that oth­er dis­ci­ple, and came to the sep­ul­chre.
  4. So they ran both to­geth­er: and the oth­er dis­ci­ple did out­run Pe­ter, and came first to the sep­ul­chre.
  5. And he stoop­ing down, and look­ing in, saw the lin­en clothes ly­ing; yet went he not in.
  6. Then com­eth Si­mon Pe­ter fol­low­ing him, and went in­to the sep­ul­chre, and seeth the lin­en clothes lie.
  7. And the nap­kin, that was about his head, not ly­ing with the lin­en clothes, but wrapped to­geth­er in a place by itself.
  8. Then went in al­so that oth­er dis­ci­ple, which came first to the sep­ul­chre, and he saw, and believed.
  9. For as yet they knew not the scrip­ture, that he must rise again from the dead.
  10. Then the dis­ci­ples went away again un­to their own home.
  11. But Mary stood with­out at the sep­ul­chre weep­ing: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked in­to the sepulchre,
  12. And seeth two an­gels in white sit­ting, the one at the head, and the oth­er at the feet, where the body of ⟨Jesus⟩ had lain.
  13. And they say un­to her, Wom­an, why weep­est thou? She sa­ith un­to them, Be­cause they have tak­en away my ⟨Lord⟩, and I know not where they have laid him.
  14. And when she had thus said, she turned her­self back, and saw ⟨Jesus⟩ stand­ing, and knew not that it was ⟨Jesus⟩.
  15. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Wom­an, why weep­est thou? whom seek­est thou? She, sup­pos­ing him to be the gar­den­er, sa­ith un­to him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
  16. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Mary. She turned her­self, and sa­ith un­to him, Rab-‍bo‍-‍ni; which is to say, Master.
  17. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to her, Touch me not; for I am not yet as­cend­ed to my Fa­ther: but go to my breth­ren, and say un­to them, I as­cend un­to my Fa­ther, and your Fa­ther; and to my ⟨God⟩, and your ⟨God⟩.
  18. Mary Mag-‍da-‍le‍-‍ne came and told the dis­ci­ples that she had seen the ⟨Lord⟩, and that he had spok­en these things un­to her.
  19. Then the same day at eve­ning, be­ing the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the dis­ci­ples were as­sem­bled for fear of the Jews, came ⟨Jesus⟩ and stood in the midst, and sa­ith un­to them, Peace be un­to you.
  20. And when he had so said, he shewed un­to them his hands and his side. Then were the dis­ci­ples glad, when they saw the ⟨Lord⟩.
  21. Then said ⟨Jesus⟩ to them again, Peace be un­to you: as my Fa­ther hath sent me, even so send I you.
  22. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and sa­ith un­to them, Re­ceive ye the Holy ⟨Ghost⟩:
  23. Whose so­ever sins ye re­mit, they are re­mit­ted un­to them; and whose so­ever sins ye re­tain, they are retained.
  24. But Thom­as, one of the twelve, called Did-‍y-‍mus, was not with them when ⟨Jesus⟩ came.
  25. The oth­er dis­ci­ples there­fore said un­to him, We have seen the ⟨Lord⟩. But he said un­to them, Ex­cept I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my fin­ger in­to the print of the nails, and thrust my hand in­to his side, I will not believe.
  26. And af­ter eight days again his dis­ci­ples were with­in, and Thom­as with them: then came ⟨Jesus⟩, the doors be­ing shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be un­to you.
  27. Then sa­ith he to Thom­as, Reach hith­er thy fin­ger, and be­hold my hands; and reach hith­er thy hand, and thrust it in­to my side: and be not faith­less, but believing.
  28. And Thom­as an­swered and said un­to him, My ⟨Lord⟩ and my ⟨God⟩.
  29. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, Thom­as, be­cause thou hast seen me, thou hast be­lieved: bless­ed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
  30. And ma­ny oth­er signs tru­ly did ⟨Jesus⟩ in the pres­ence of his dis­ci­ples, which are not writ­ten in this book:
  31. But these are writ­ten, that ye might be­lieve that ⟨Jesus⟩ is the ⟨Christ⟩, the Son of ⟨God⟩; and that be­liev­ing ye might have life through his name.
Chapter Twenty-One
  1. AFTER these things ⟨Jesus⟩ shewed him­self again to the dis­ci­ples at the sea of Ti-‍be-‍ri-‍as; and on this wise shewed he himself.
  2. There were to­geth­er Si­mon Pe­ter, and Thom­as called Did-‍y-‍mus, and Na-‍than‍-‍a-‍el of Cana in Gal­i­lee, and the sons of Zeb‍-‍e-‍dee, and two oth­er of his disciples.
  3. Simon Pe­ter sa­ith un­to them, I go a fish­ing. They say un­to him, We al­so go with thee. They went forth, and en­tered in­to a ship im­me­di­ate­ly; and that night they caught nothing.
  4. But when the morn­ing was now come, ⟨Jesus⟩ stood on the shore: but the dis­ci­ples knew not that it was ⟨Jesus⟩.
  5. Then ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Chil­dren, have ye any meat? They an­swered him, No.
  6. And he said un­to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast there­fore, and now they were not able to draw it for the mul­ti­tude of fishes.
  7. Therefore that dis­ci­ple whom ⟨Jesus⟩ loved sa­ith un­to Pe­ter, It is the ⟨Lord⟩. Now when Si­mon Pe­ter heard that it was the ⟨Lord⟩, he girt his fish­er’s coat un­to him, (for he was nak­ed,) and did cast him­self in­to the sea.
  8. And the oth­er dis­ci­ples came in a lit­tle ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hun­dred cu­bits,) drag­ging the net with fishes.
  9. As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid there­on, and bread.
  10. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Bring (some) of the fish which ye have now caught.
  11. Simon Pe­ter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fish­es, an hun­dred and fif­ty and three: and for all there were so ma­ny, yet was not the net broken.
  12. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to them, Come and dine. And none of the dis­ci­ples durst ask him, Who art thou? know­ing that it was the ⟨Lord⟩.
  13. ⟨Jesus⟩ then com­eth, and tak­eth bread, and giv­eth them, and fish likewise.
  14. This is now the third time that ⟨Jesus⟩ shewed him­self to his dis­ci­ples, af­ter that he was ris­en from the dead.
  15. So when they had dined, ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith to Si­mon Pe­ter, Si­mon, son of Jo‍-‍nas, lov­est thou me more than these? He sa­ith un­to him, Yea, ⟨Lord⟩; thou know­est that I love thee. He sa­ith un­to him, Feed my lambs.
  16. He sa­ith to him again the sec­ond time, Si­mon, son of Jo‍-‍nas, lov­est thou me? He sa­ith un­to him, Yea, ⟨Lord⟩; thou know­est that I love thee. He sa­ith un­to him, Feed my sheep.
  17. He sa­ith un­to him the third time, Si­mon, son of Jo‍-‍nas, lov­est thou me? Pe­ter was grieved be­cause he said un­to him the third time, ()Lov­est thou me?() And he said un­to him, ⟨Lord⟩, thou know­est all things; thou know­est that I love thee. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, Feed my sheep.
  18. Verily, ver­i­ly, I say un­to thee, When thou wast young, thou gird­est thy­self, and walk­edst whith­er thou would­est: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and an­oth­er shall gird thee, and car­ry thee whith­er thou would­est not.
  19. This spake he, sig­ni­fy­ing by what death he should glo­ri­fy ⟨God⟩. And when he had spok­en this, he sa­ith un­to him, Fol­low me.
  20. Then Pe­ter, turn­ing about, seeth the dis­ci­ple whom ⟨Jesus⟩ loved fol­low­ing; which al­so leaned on his breast at (the last) sup­per (be­fore the cru­ci­fix­ion), and said (then), ⟨Lord⟩, which is he that be­tray­eth thee?
  21. Peter see­ing him sa­ith to ⟨Jesus⟩, ⟨Lord⟩, and what shall this man do?
  22. ⟨Jesus⟩ sa­ith un­to him, If I will that he tar­ry till I come, what is that to thee? fol­low thou me. (See: Matthew 16:28)
  23. Then went this say­ing abroad among the breth­ren, that that dis­ci­ple should not die: yet ⟨Jesus⟩ said not un­to him, He shall not die; but, ()If I will that he tar­ry till I come, what is that to thee?()
  24. This is the dis­ci­ple which tes­ti­fi­eth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his tes­ti­mo­ny is true.
  25. And there are al­so ma­ny oth­er things which ⟨Jesus⟩ did, the which, if they should be writ­ten ev­ery one, I sup­pose that even the world it­self could not con­tain the books that should be writ­ten. A-‍men.
