1In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the
Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God.
3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing
made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light
5And the light shone in darkness; and the darkness did not
comprehended it. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name
was John. 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness
of the Light, that all men might believe through him. 8He
was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9That was the true Light, who lights every man who comes
into the world. 10He was in the world and the world was made by
him and the world did not know him. 11He came to his own and his
own did not receive him. 12But as many as received him, he gave
power to them to become the sons of God, even to those who believe
in his name: 13Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of
the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word
was made flesh and dwelled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory
as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15John bore witness of him and cried, saying, This was he of whom
I spoke, He who comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before
me. 16And of his fullness we have all received, and grace for
grace. 17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and
truth came by Jesus Christ. 18No man has seen God at any time;
the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared
19And this is the record of John, when the
Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you?
20And he confessed and did not deny; but confessed, I am not the
Christ. 21And they asked him, Who then? Are you Elijah? And he
said, I am not. Are you that prophet? And he answered, No. 22Then
they said to him, Who are you? that we may give an answer to those who sent
us. What do you say of yourself? 23He said, I am the
voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make the way of the Lord straight,
as the prophet Isaiah said. 24And those who were sent were of
the Pharisees. 25And they asked him and said to him, Why do you
baptize then, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, neither that prophet?
26John answered them, saying, I baptize in water: but there stands
one among you, whom you do not know; 27He it is, who coming after
me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
28These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where
John was baptizing.
29The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold the
Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. 30This is he
of whom I said, After me comes a man who is preferred before me: for he was
before me. 31And I did not know him, but therefore I have come
baptizing in water so that he would be made manifest to Israel,.
32And John bore record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from
heaven like a dove and it abode on him. 33And I did not know him:
but he who sent me to baptize with water, the same said to me, On whom you
shall see the Spirit descending and remaining on him, the same is he who
baptizes in the Holy Spirit. 34And I saw and bore record that
this is the Son of God. 35Again the next day after, John and two
of his disciples stood; 36And looking at Jesus as he walked, he
said, Behold the Lamb of God!
37And the two disciples heard him speak and they followed Jesus.
38Then Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, What
do you seek? They said to him, Rabbi, (which being translated is Master,)
where do you dwell? 39He said to them, Come and see. They came
and saw where he dwelled and abode with him that day: for it was about the
tenth hour. 40One of the two who heard John speak and
followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41He first found
his own brother Simon and said to him, We have found the Messiah, which
translated is, the Christ. 42And he brought him to Jesus. And
when Jesus beheld him, he said, You are Simon the son of Jona: you shall
be called Cephas, which when translated is, a stone.
43The day following Jesus would go on to Galilee and he found
Philip and said to him, Follow me. 44Now Philip was of Bethsaida,
the city of Andrew and Peter. 45Philip found Nathanael and said
to him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law and the prophets, wrote,
Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 46And Nathanael said to
him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and
see. 47Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, Behold
an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 48Nathanael said to
him, When did you know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip
called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.
49Nathanael answered and said to him, Rabbi, you are the Son of
God; you are the King of Israel. 50Jesus answered and said to
him, Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe?
you shall see greater things than these. 51And he said to him,
Verily, verily, I say to you, Hereafter you shall see heaven open and the
angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of man.
1And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and
the mother of Jesus was there: 2And both Jesus and his disciples
were invited to the marriage. 3And when they lacked wine, the
mother of Jesus said to him, They have no wine. 4Jesus said to
her, Woman, what have I to do with you? my hour has not yet come.
5His mother said to the servants, What ever he says to you, do
it. 6And six stone water pots were set there, after the
manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing about 30 gallons each.
7Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim. 8And he said to them, Draw out now
and carry to the governor of the feast. And they carried it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that had been
made wine and did not know where it was from: (but the servants who drew
the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10And said to him, Every man at the beginning sets forth good
wine; and when men have drunk well, then that which is worse: but
you have kept the good wine until now. 11This beginning of miracles
Jesus did in Cana of Galilee and manifested his glory; and his disciples
believed in him.
12After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and
his brothers and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
13And the Jews' passover was at hand and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
14And found sitting in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep
and doves and the changers of money: 15And 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;
16And said to those who sold doves, Take these things from here;
do not make my Father's house a house of merchandise. 17And his
disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of your house has eaten
me up. 18Then the Jews answered and said to him, What sign do
you show to us, seeing that you do these things? 19Jesus answered
and said to them, Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.
20Then the Jews said, Forty six years this temple has been in
building and will you rear it up in three days? 21But he spoke
of the temple of his body. 22 Therefore when he was risen from
the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this to them; and they
believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
23Now 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. 24But Jesus did not commit himself to them, because he
knew all men, 25And did not need that any should testify
of man: for he knew what was in man.
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of
the Jews: 2The same came to Jesus by night and said to him, Rabbi,
we know that you are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles
that you do, unless God is with him. 3Jesus answered and said
to him, Verily, verily, I say to you, Except a man is born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus said to 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? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say to you, Except
a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and
that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Do not marvel that
I said to you, You must be born again. 8The wind blows where it
wishes and you hear its sound, but can not tell from where it comes and where
it goes: so is every one who is born of the Spirit. 9Nicodemus
answered and said to him, How can these things be? 10Jesus answered
and said to him, Are you a teacher of Israel and you do not know these things?
11Verily, verily, I say to you, We speak that which we know and
testify to that we have seen; and you do not receive our witness.
12If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how
shall you believe, if I tell you heavenly things? 13And no man
has ascended up to heaven, but he who came down from heaven, even
the Son of man who is in heaven. 14And as Moses lifted up the
serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15That who ever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal
life. 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting
life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn
the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He
who believes in him is not condemned: but he who does not believe is condemned
already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son
of God. 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into
the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were
evil. 20For every one who does evil hates the light, neither comes
to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21But he who
does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that
they are wrought in God.
22After these things Jesus and his disciples came into the land
of Judea; and there he stayed with them and baptized. 23And John
also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there:
and they came and were baptized. 24For John was not cast into
prison yet. 25Then there arose a question between some
of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26And they came
to John and said to him, Rabbi, he who was with you beyond Jordan, to whom
you bore witness, behold, the same baptizes and all men come to
him. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except
it is given him from heaven. 28You yourselves bear me witness,
that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29He who has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the
bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the
bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must
increase, but I must decrease. 31He who comes from above
is above all: he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth:
he who comes from heaven is above all. 32And what he has seen
and heard, that he testifies; and no man receives his testimony.
33He who has received his testimony has set to his seal that God
is true. 34For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God: for
God does not give the Spirit to him by measure. 35The
Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. 36He
who believes in the Son has everlasting life: and he who does not believes
the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.
1When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that
Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2(Though Jesus
himself did not baptize, but his disciples did,) 3He
left Judea and departed again into Galilee.
4And he had to go through Samaria. 5Then he came to
a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that
Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus
therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well:
and it was about the sixth hour. 7There came a woman
of Samaria to draw water: Jesus said to her, Give me a drink.
8(For his disciples were gone away to the city to buy food.)
9Then the woman of Samaria said to him, How is it that you, being
a Jew, ask a drink from me, who is a Samaritan woman? for the Jews have no
dealings with the Samaritans. 10Jesus answered and said to her,
If you knew the gift of God and who it is who said to you, Give me a drink;
you would have asked of him and he would have given you living water.
11The woman said to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with and
the well is deep: from where then have you that living water? 12
Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank of
it himself and his children and his cattle? 13Jesus answered and
said to her, Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again:
14But whoever drinks 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. 15The woman said
to him, Sir, give me this water, so that I do not thirst, neither come here
to draw. 16Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband and come here.
17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said to
her, You have well said, I have no husband: 18For you have had
five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband: in that you
spoke truly. 19The woman said to him, Sir, I perceive that you
are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and you
say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21Jesus said to her, Woman, believe me, the hour is coming, when
you shall worship the Father neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem.
22You worship what you do not know: we know what we worship: for
salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour is coming and now is,
when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
for the Father seeks such to worship him. 24God is a
Spirit: and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and
in truth. 25The woman said to him, I know that Messiah comes,
(who is called Christ): when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26Jesus said to her, I who speak to you am he.
27And upon this his disciples came and marvelled that he talked
with the woman: yet no man said, What do you seek? or, Why do you talk with
her? 28The woman then left her water pot and went her way into
the city and said to the men, 29Come, see a man, who told me all
things that I ever did: is not this the Christ? 30Then they went
out of the city and came to him. 31 In the mean while his disciples
asked him, saying, Master, eat. 32But he said to them, I have
food to eat that you do not know. 33Therefore the disciples said
to one another, Has any man brought him anything to eat?
34Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of him who sent
me and to finish his work. 35Do not say, There are yet four months
and then comes harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes
and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36And he who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit to life eternal:
that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37And
here is that saying true, One sows and another reaps. 38I sent
you to reap that on which you bestowed no labour: other men laboured and
you are entered into their labours. 39And many of the Samaritans
of that city believed in him for the saying of the woman, who testified,
He told me all that I ever did. 40So when the Samaritans had come
to him, they begged him that he would stay with them: and he abode there
two days. 41And many more believed because of his own word;
42And said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of your saying:
for we have heard him ourselves and we know that this indeed is
the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43Now after two days he departed from there and went into Galilee.
44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet has no honour in
his own country. 45Then when he had come into Galilee, the Galileans
received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the
feast: for they also went to the feast. 46So Jesus came again
into Cana of Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And there was a certain
nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47When he heard that
Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to him and begged him that
he would come down and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
48Then Jesus said to him, Except you see signs and wonders, you
will not believe. 49The nobleman said to him, Sir, come down before
my child dies. 50Jesus said to him, Go your way; your son lives.
And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him and he went his
way. 51And as he was now going down, his servants met him and
told him, saying, your son lives. 52Then he enquired
of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said to him, Yesterday
at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53So the father knew that
it was at the same hour, in which Jesus said to him, your son lives:
and he and his whole house believed. 54This is again
the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judea
1After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to
Jerusalem. 2Now there is at Jerusalem a pool by the sheep
market, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five
porches. 3In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of
blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. 4For
an angel went down at a certain season into the pool and troubled the water:
who ever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made
whole of whatever disease he had. 5And a certain man was there,
who had an infirmity thirty eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lie
and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he said
to him, Will you be made whole? 7The 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 steps down before me. 8Jesus said
to him, Rise, take up your bed and walk. 9And immediately the
man was made whole and took up his bed and walked: and the same day was the
sabbath. 10The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, It is
the sabbath day: it is not lawful for you to carry your bed. 11He
answered them, He who made me whole, the same said to me, Take up your bed
and walk. 12Then they him asked, What man is that who said to
you, Take up your bed and walk? 13And he who was healed did not
know who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in
that place. 14Afterward Jesus found him in the temple
and said to him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing
come to you. 15The man departed, and told the Jews that it was
Jesus, who had made him whole. 16And therefore the Jews persecuted
Jesus and sought to kill him, because he had done these things on the sabbath
17But Jesus answered them, My Father works till now and I work.
18Therefore 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. 19Then Jesus answered and said to them,
Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what
he sees the Father do: for whatever things he does, these also the Son does
likewise. 20For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things
that he does himself: and he will show him greater works than these, so that
you may marvel. 21For as the Father raises up the dead and quickens
them; even so the Son quickens whom he will. 22For the
Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son:
23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour
the Father. He who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who
has sent him. 24Verily, verily, I say to you, He who hears my
word and believes in him who sent me, has everlasting life and shall not
come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life.
25Verily, verily, I say to you, The hour is coming and now is,
when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and those who hear
shall live. 26For as the Father has life in himself; so he has
given to the Son to have life in himself; 27And has given him
authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all that
are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29And shall come forth;
those who have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those who have
done evil, to the resurrection of damnation. 30I can do nothing
of my own self: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I do
not seek my own will, but the will of the Father who has sent me.
31If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32There is another who bears witness of me; and I know that the
witness which he witnesses of me is true. 33You sent to John and
he bore witness to the truth. 34But I do not receive testimony
from man: but these things I say, that you might be saved. 35He
was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing to rejoice in his
light for a season. 36But I have a greater witness than
that of John: for the works which the Father has given me to finish,
the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me.
37And the Father himself, who has sent me, has borne witness of
me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
38And you do not have his word abiding in you: for whom he has
sent, you did not believe. 39Search the scriptures; for in them
you think you have eternal life: and they are they who testify of me.
40And you will not come to me, that you might have life.
41I do not receive honour from men. 42But I know you,
that you do not have the love of God in you. 43I am come in my
Father's name and you do not receive me: if another shall come in his own
name, you will receive him. 44How can you believe, who receive
honour from one another and do not seek the honour that comes from
God only? 45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father:
there is one who accuses you, even Moses, in whom you trust.
46For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me: for
he wrote of me. 47But if you do not believe his writings, how
shall you believe my words?
1After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which
is the sea of Tiberias. 2And a great multitude followed
him, because they saw his miracles which he did on those who were diseased.
3And Jesus went up into a mountain and there he sat with his
disciples. 4And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was near.
5When Jesus then lifted up his eyes and saw a great company
come to him, he said to Philip, Where shall we buy bread from, so that these
may eat? 6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what
he would do. 7Philip answered him, Two hundred danaria of bread
is not sufficient for them, so that every one of them may take a little.
8One of his disciples Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
9There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves and two small
fish: but what are they among so many? 10And 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. 11And Jesus took the loaves; and
when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples and the disciples
to those who were set down; and likewise of the fish as much as they would.
12When they were filled, he said to his disciples, Gather up the
fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost. 13Therefore they
gathered them together and filled twelve baskets with the fragments
of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above to those who had
eaten. 14Then 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.
15When 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. 16And when evening was now come, his disciples
went down to the sea, 17And entered into a ship and went over
the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark and Jesus had not come to them.
18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19So when they had rowed about twenty five or thirty furlongs,
they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the ship: and they
were afraid. 20But he said to them, It is I; do not be afraid.
21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately
the ship was at the land where they went.
22The following day, when the people who stood on the other side
of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one in which
his disciples were entered and that Jesus did not go with his disciples into
the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
23(But other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they
ate bread, after the Lord had given thanks:) 24When the people
therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they also took
shipping and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus. 25And when
they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, Rabbi,
when did you come here? 26Jesus answered them and said, Verily,
verily, I say to you, You do not seek me because you saw the miracles, but
because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27Do not labour
for the food which perishes, but for that food which endures to everlasting
life, which the Son of man shall give to you: for God the Father has sealed
28Then they said to him, What shall we do, that we might work
the works of God? 29Jesus answered and said to them, This is the
work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent. 30They
said therefore to him, What sign do you show then, that we may see and believe
you? what work do you do? 31Our fathers ate manna in the desert;
as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32Then
Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Moses did not give you
that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
33For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives
life to the world. 34Then they said to him, Lord, give us this
bread evermore. 35And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life:
he who comes to me shall never hunger; and he who believes in me shall never
thirst. 36But I said to you, That you also have seen me and do
not believe. 37All who the Father gives me shall come to me; and
he who comes to me I will in no way cast out. 38For I came down
from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.
39And this is the Father's will who has sent me, that of all whom
he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the
last day. 40And this is the will of him who sent me, that every
one who sees the Son and believes in him, may have everlasting life: and
I will raise him up at the last day. 41The Jews then murmured
at him, because he said, I am the bread who came down from heaven.
42And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father
and mother we know? how is it then that he said, I came down from heaven?
43Jesus therefore answered and said to them, Do not murmur among
yourselves. 44No man can come to me, except the Father who has
sent me draws him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It
is written in the prophets and they shall all be taught of God. Every man
therefore who has heard and has learned of the Father, comes to me.
46Not that any man has seen the Father, except he who is from
God, he has seen the Father. 47Verily, verily, I say to you, He
who believes in me has everlasting life. 48I am that bread of
life. 49Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness and are dead.
50This is the bread who comes down from heaven, that a man may
eat of and not die. 51I am the living bread who came down from
heaven: if any man eats 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.
52The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can
this man give us his flesh to eat? 53Then Jesus said
to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son
of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54Who ever
eats my flesh and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him
up at the last day. 55For my flesh is food indeed and my blood
is drink indeed. 56He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, dwells
in me and I in him. 57As the living Father has sent me and I live
by the Father: so he who eats me, even he shall live by me. 58This
is that bread who came down from heaven: not as your fathers ate manna and
are dead: he who eats of this bread shall live for ever. 59These
things he said in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard
this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it?
61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it,
he said to them, does this offend you? 62What and if
you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63It
is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I
speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.
64But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew
from the beginning who they were that did not believe and who would betray
him. 65And he said, Therefore I said to you, that no man can come
to me, except it is given to him of my Father. 66From that
time many of his disciples went back and did not walk with him anymore.
67Then Jesus said to the twelve, Will you also go away?
68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you
have the words of eternal life. 69And we believe and are sure
that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God. 70Jesus answered
them, Have I not chosen you twelve and one of you is a demon? 71
He spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was who would
betray him, being one of the twelve.
1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not
walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2Now the Jews'
feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3His brothers therefore said
to him, depart from here and go into Judea, that your disciples also may
see the works that you do. 4For there is no man
who does any thing in secret and he himself seeks to be known openly.
If you do these things, show yourself to the world. 5For his brothers
did not believe in him. 6Then Jesus said to them, My time is not
yet come: but your time is always ready. 7The world cannot hate
you; but it hates me, because I testify of it, that its works are evil.
8Go up to this feast: I am not going up yet to this feast; for
my time is not yet fully come. 9When he had said these words to
them, he abode still in Galilee. 10But when his brothers
were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but as it were
in secret. 11Then the Jews sought him at the feast and said, Where
is he? 12And there was much murmuring among the people concerning
him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, No; but he deceives the
people. 13But no man spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews.
14Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple
and taught. 15And the Jews marvelled, saying, How does this man
know letters, having never learned? 16Jesus answered them and
said, My doctrine is not mine, but his who sent me. 17If any man
will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it is of God, or
whether I speak of myself. 18He who speaks of himself
seeks his own glory: but he who seeks his glory who sent him, the same is
true and no unrighteousness is in him. 19Did not Moses give you
the law and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you go about to
kill me? 20The people answered and said, You have a demon: who
goes about to kill you? 21Jesus answered and said to them, I have
done one work and you all marvel. 22Moses therefore gave circumcision
to you; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and you on the
sabbath day circumcise a man. 23If a man on the sabbath day receives
circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at
me, because I have made a man whole in every way on the sabbath day?
24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25Then some of them of Jerusalem said , Is not this he, whom they
seek to kill? 26But, lo, he speaks boldly and they say nothing
to him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
27But we know this man where he is from: but when Christ comes,
no man knows where he is from. 28Then Jesus cried in the temple
as he taught, saying, You both know me and you know where I am from: and
I am not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you do not know.
29But I know him: for I am from him and he has sent me.
30Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him,
because his hour was not yet come. 31And many of the people believed
in him and said, When Christ comes, will he do more miracles than these which
this man has done? 32The Pharisees heard that the people
murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests
sent officers to take him. 33Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little
while am I with you and then I go to him who sent me.
34You shall seek me and shall not find me: and where
I am, there you cannot come. 35Then said the Jews among
themselves, Where will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go to the
dispersed among the Gentiles and teach the Gentiles? 36What
manner of saying is this that he said, You shall seek me and shall
not find me: and where I am, you cannot come there?
37 In the last day, that great day
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come
to me and drink. 38He who believes in me, as the scripture has
said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39(But
this spoke he of the Spirit, who those who believe in him should receive:
for the Holy Spirit was not given yet; because Jesus was not yet
glorified.) 40Many of the people therefore, when they heard this
saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41Others said, This
is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
42Has not the scripture said, That Christ comes of the seed of
David and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? 43So
there was a division among the people because of him. 44And some
of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
45Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and
they said to them, Why have you not brought him? 46The officers
answered, Never man spoke like this man. 47Then the Pharisees
answered them, Are you also deceived? 48Have any of the rulers
or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49But this people who do
not know the law are cursed. 50Nicodemus said to them, (he who
came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 51Does our law judge
any man, before it hears him and knows what he does?
52They answered and said to him, Are you also of Galilee? Search
and look: for no prophet arises out of Galilee.* 53And every man
went to his own house.
*see Isa 9:1,2ff
1 Jesus went to the mount of Olives. 2And early in
the morning he came again into the temple and all the people came to him;
and he sat down and taught them. 3And the scribes and Pharisees
brought to him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the
midst, 4They said to him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery,
in the very act. 5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such
should be stoned: but what do you say? 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 did not hear
them. 7So when they continued asking him, he lifted himself
up and said to them, He who is without sin among you, let him first cast
a stone at her. 8And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9And those who heard it, being convicted by their
own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest,
even to the last: and Jesus was left alone and the woman standing
in the midst. 10When Jesus had lifted himself up and saw no one
but the woman, he said to her, Woman, where are your accusers? has no man
condemned you? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her,
Neither do I condemn you: go and sin no more.
12Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, I am the light of the
world: he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light
of life. 13The Pharisees therefore said to him, You bear record
of yourself; your record is not true. 14Jesus answered and said
to them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true:
for I know where I came from and where I go; but you cannot tell where I
came from and where I go. 15You judge after the flesh; I judge
no man. 16And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not
alone, but I and the Father who sent me. 17 It is also written
in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18I am one
who bears witness of myself and the Father who sent me bears witness of me.
19Then they said to him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered,
You neither know me, nor my Father: if you had known me, you would have known
my Father also. 20These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as
he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not
21Then Jesus said to them again, I go my way and you shall seek
me and shall die in your sins: where I go, you cannot come. 22Then
the Jews said, Will he kill himself? because he said, Where I go, you cannot
come. 23And he said to them, You are from beneath; I am from above:
you are of this world; I am not of this world. 24Therefore I said
to you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you do not believe that I
am he, you shall die in your sins. 25Then they said to
him, Who are you? And Jesus said to them, Even the same that I told
you from the beginning. 26I have many things to say and to judge
of you: but he who sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things
which I have heard from him. 27They did not understand that he
spoke to them of the Father. 28Then Jesus said to them, When you
have lifted up the Son of man, then you shall know that I am he
and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me,
I speak these things. 29And he who sent me is with me: the Father
has not left me alone; for I always do those things that please him.
30As he spoke these words, many believed in him.
31Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, If you continue
in my word, then you are my disciples indeed; 32And you
shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. 33They
answered him, We are Abraham's seed and were never in bondage to any man:
how do you say, You shall be made free? 34Jesus answered them,
Verily, verily, I say to you, Who ever commits sin is the servant of sin.
35And the servant does not abide in the house for ever:
but the Son ever abides. 36If the Son therefore shall
make you free, you shall be free indeed. 37I know that you are
Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in
38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that
which you have seen with your father. 39They answered and said
to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham's
children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40But now you seek
to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God:
Abraham did not do this. 41You do the deeds of your father. Then
they said to him, We are not born of fornication; we have one Father,
even God. 42Jesus said to them, If God were your Father,
you would love me: for I proceeded and came from God; neither did I come
of myself, but he sent me. 43Why do you not understand my speech?
even because you cannot hear my word. 44You are of
your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning and did not abide in the truth, because
there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for
he is a liar and the father of it. 45And because I tell
you the truth, you do not believe me.
46Which of you convicts me of sin? And if I say the truth, why
do you not believe me? 47He who is of God hears God's words: you
therefore do not hear them, because you are not of God.
48Then the Jews answered and said to him, Do we not well say that
you are a Samaritan and have a demon? 49Jesus answered, I do not
have a demon; but I honour my Father and you dishonour me. 50And
I do not seek my own glory: there is one who seeks and judges.
51Verily, verily, I say to you, If a man keeps my sayings, he
shall never see death. 52Then the Jews said to him, Now we know
that you have a demon. Abraham is dead and the prophets; and you say, If
a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53Are you
greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? and the prophets are dead:
whom do you make yourself? 54Jesus answered, If I honour myself,
my honour is nothing: it is my Father who honours me; of whom you say, that
he is your God: 55Yet you have not known him; but I know him:
and if I should say, I do not know him, I shall be a liar like you: but I
know him and keep his sayings. 56Your father Abraham rejoiced
to see my day: and he saw it and was glad. 57Then the
Jews said to him, You are not yet fifty years old and have you seen Abraham?
58Jesus said to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Before Abraham
was, I am. 59Then they took 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.
1And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from
his birth. 2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master,
who sinned, this man, or his parents, so that he was born blind?
3Jesus answered, Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents:
but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4I must
work the works of him who sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when
no man can work. 5As long as I am in the world, I am the light
of the world. 6When 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, 7And said to him, Go, wash in
the pool of Siloam, (which by interpretation is, Sent.) He went his way therefore
and washed and came seeing.
8The neighbours therefore and those who had seen him before that
he was blind, said, Is not this he who sat and begged? 9Some said,
This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I
am he. 10Therefore they said to him, How were your eyes
opened? 11He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made
clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, Go to the pool of Siloam and wash:
and I went and washed and I received sight. 12Then they said to
him, Where is he? He said, I do not know.
13They brought him who previously was blind to the Pharisees.
14And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay and opened
his eyes. 15Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had
received his sight. He said to them, He put clay on my eyes and I washed
and I see. 16Therefore some of the Pharisee said, This man is
not of God, because he does not keep the sabbath day. Others said, How can
a man who is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17They said again to the blind man, What do you say of him, that
he has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet. 18But the Jews
did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and received his sight,
until they called the parents of him who had received his sight.
19And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was
born blind? how then does he now see? 20His parents answered them
and said, We know that this is our son and that he was born blind:
21But by what means he now sees, we do not know; or who has opened
his eyes, we do not know: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22His parents spoke these words, because they feared
the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man confessed that
he was the Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23Therefore his parents said, He is of age; ask him.
24Then again they called the man who had been blind and said to
him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. 25
He answered and said, Whether he is a sinner or not, I do not know:
one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, I now see. 26Then
they said to him again, What did he do to you? how did he open your eyes?
27He answered them, I have told you already and you did not hear:
why would you hear it again? will you also be his disciples?
28Then they reviled him and said, You are his disciple; but we
are Moses' disciples. 29We know that God spoke to Moses: as
for this fellow, we do not know where he is from.
30The man answered and said to them, Why herein is a marvellous
thing, that you do not know where he is from and yet he has opened
my eyes. 31Now we know that God does not hear sinners: but if
any man be a worshiper of God and he does his will, he hears him.
32Since the world began it has not been heard that any man opened
the eyes of one who was born blind. 33If this man was not of God,
he could do nothing. 34They answered and said to him, You were
altogether born in sins and do you teach us? And they cast him out.
35Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found
him, he said to him, Do you believe in the Son of God? 36He answered
and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe in him? 37And
Jesus said to him, You have both seen him and it is he who talks with you.
38And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped him.
39And Jesus said, I am come into this world for judgment, that
those who do not see might see; and that those who see might be made blind.
40And some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these
words and said to him, Are we blind also? 41Jesus said to them,
If you were blind, you would have no sin: but now you say, We see; therefore
your sin remains.
1Verily, verily, I say to you, He who does not enter by the door
into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and
a robber. 2But he who enters in by the door is the shepherd of
the sheep. 3To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4And when
he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them and the sheep follow him:
for they know his voice. 5And they will not follow a stranger,
but will flee from him: for they do not know the voice of strangers.
6Jesus spoke to them this parable: but they did not understand
what things they were which he spoke to them. 7Then Jesus said
to them again, Verily, verily, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
8All who ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the
sheep did not hear them. 9I am the door: if any man enters in
by me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture.
10The thief does not come, except to steal and to kill and to
destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have
it more abundantly. 11I am the good shepherd: the good
shepherd gives his life for the sheep. 12But he who is a hireling
and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and
leaves the sheep and flees: and the wolf catches them and scatters the sheep.
13 The hireling flees, because he is a hireling and does not care
for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd and I know my
sheep and am known of mine. 15As the Father knows me,
even so I know the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: I must bring
them also and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold,
and one shepherd. 17Therefore my Father love me, because
I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18No man takes
it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down and
I have power to take it again. I have received this commandment from my Father.
19There was a division therefore again among the Jews because
of these sayings. 20And many of them said, He has a devil and
is mad; why do you hear him? 21Others said, These are not the
words of him who has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22And it was in Jerusalem at the feast of the dedication and it
was winter. 23And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
24Then the Jews came round about him and said to him, How long
do you make us doubt? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.
25Jesus answered them, I told you and you did not believed: the
works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
26But you do not believe because you are not of my sheep, as I
said to you. 27My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they
follow me: 28And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30I and my Father are one. 31Then the Jews
took up stones again to stone him. 32Jesus answered them, Many
good works have I shown to you from my Father; for which of those works do
you stone me? 33The Jews answered him, saying, We do not stone
you for a good work; but for blasphemy; and because you, being a man, make
yourself God. 34Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your
law, I said, You are gods? 35If he called them gods, to whom the
word of God came and the scripture cannot be broken; 36Do you
say of him, whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, You
blaspheme, because I said, I am the Son of God? 37If I do not
the works of my Father, do not believe me. 38But if I do, though
you do not believe me, believe the works: so that you may know and believe,
that the Father is in me and I in him.
39Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out
of their hands, 40And went away again beyond the Jordan into the
place where John baptized at the first; and he abode there. 41And
many resorted to him and said, John did no miracles: but all things that
John spoke of this man were true. 42And many believed in him there.
1Now a certain man, Lazarus of Bethany, was sick, the town of
Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (It was that Mary who anointed
the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus
was sick.) 3Therefore his sisters sent to him, saying, Lord, behold,
he whom you love is sick. 4When Jesus heard that, he
said, This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that the Son
of God might be glorified by it. 5Now Jesus loved Martha and her
sister and Lazarus. 6When he had heard therefore that he was sick,
he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7Then
after that he said to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again.
8His disciples said to him, Master, the Jews of late
sought to stone you; and will you go there again? 9Jesus answered,
Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he does
not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 10But if
a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.
11These things he said: and after that he said to them, Our friend
Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleeps, he shall do well.
13But Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken
of taking rest in sleep. 14Then Jesus said to them plainly, Lazarus
is dead. 15And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there,
to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go to him.
16Then said Thomas, who is called Didymus, to his fellow disciples,
Let us also go, that we may die with him.
17Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in
the grave four days already. 18Now Bethany was near to Jerusalem,
about fifteen furlongs off: 19And many of the Jews came to Martha
and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 20Then Martha,
as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary
still sat in the house. 21Then said Martha to Jesus,
Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22But
I know, that even now, what ever you will ask of God, God will give
it to you. 23Jesus said to her, your brother shall rise
again. 24Martha said to him, I know that he shall rise again in
the resurrection at the last day. 25Jesus said to her, I am the
resurrection and the life: he who believes in me, though he were dead, yet
shall he live: 26And who ever lives and believes in me shall never
die. Do you believe this? 27She said to him, Yes, Lord: I believe
that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who should come into the world.
28And when she had so said, she went her way and called Mary her
sister secretly, saying, The Master is come and calls for you.
29As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came
to him. 30Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in
that place where Martha met him. 31The Jews then who 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 goes to the grave to weep
there. 32Then when Mary was come where Jesus was and saw him,
she fell down at his feet, saying to him, Lord, if you had been here, my
brother would not have died.
33When Jesus therefore saw her weeping and the Jews who came with
her also weeping he groaned in the spirit and was troubled, 34And
said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, Lord, come and see.
35Jesus wept. 36Then the Jews said, Behold how he loved
him! 37And some of them said, Could not this man, who opened the
eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
38Jesus therefore again groaning in himself came to the grave.
It was a cave and a stone lay on it. 39Jesus said, Take away the
stone. Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him, Lord, by this
time he stinks: for he has been dead four days. 40Jesus
said to her, Did I not say to you, that, if you would believe, you should
see the glory of God? 41Then they took away the stone from
the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his
eyes, and said, Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42And
I know that you hear me always: but because of the people who stand by I
said it, so that they may believe that you have sent me.
43And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus,
come forth. 44And he who was dead came forth, bound hand and foot
with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said
to them, Loose him and let him go.
45Then many of the Jews who came to Mary and had seen the things
which Jesus did, believed in him. 46But some of them went their
ways to the Pharisees and told them what things Jesus had done.
47Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council
and said, What shall we do? for this man does many miracles. 48If
we let him thus alone, all men will believe in him: and the Romans
shall come and take away both our place and nation. 49And one
of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said
to them, You know nothing at all, 50Nor consider that it is expedient
for us, that one man should die for the people and that the whole nation
does not perish. 51And this he spoke not from himself: but being
high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
52And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather
together in one the children of God who are scattered abroad.
53Then from that day forth they took counsel together to put him
to death. 54Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews;
but went from there to a country near the wilderness, into a city called
Ephraim and there he continued with his disciples. 55And the Jews'
passover was near at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem
before the passover, to purify themselves. 56Then they sought
for Jesus and spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What do
you think, that he will not come to the feast? 57Now both the
chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man
knew where he was, he should show it, that they might take him.
1Then Jesus came to Bethany six days before the passover, where
Lazarus was who had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
2There they made a supper for him; and Martha served: but Lazarus
was one of those who sat at the table with him. 3Then Mary took
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. 4Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's
son, who would betray him said, 5Why was this ointment
not 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 bore what was put in it. 7Then Jesus said, Let her
alone: she has kept this against the day of my burying. 8For the
poor you have with you always; but you do not have me always.
9Many people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and
they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also,
whom he had raised from the dead. 10But the chief priests consulted
that they might also put Lazarus to death; 11Because by reason
of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.
12On the next day many people who had come to the feast, when
they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13Took branches
of palm trees and went out to meet him and cried, Hosanna: Blessed
is the King of Israel who comes in the name of the Lord.
14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat on it; as it is
written, 15Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, your King comes,
sitting on an ass's colt. 16His disciples did not understand these
things at first: but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that
these things were written of him and that they had done these things
to him. 17Therefore the people who were with him when he called
Lazarus out of his grave and raised him from the dead, bore record.
18For this cause the people also met him, for they heard that
he had done this miracle. 19The Pharisees therefore said among
themselves, Do you Perceive how you prevail nothing? behold, the world is
gone after him.
20And there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship
at the feast: 21The same came therefore to Philip, who was of
Bethsaida of Galilee and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
22Philip came and told Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip told
Jesus. 23And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that
the Son of man should be glorified. 24Verily, verily, I say to
you, Except a corn of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone:
but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. 25He who loves his
life shall lose it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it
to life eternal. 26If any man serves me, let him follow me; and
where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serves me, my
Father honour will him.
27Now my soul is troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save
me from this hour? but for this cause I came to this hour.
28Father, glorify your name. Then there came a voice from heaven,
saying, I have both glorified it and will glorify
it again. 29The people therefore, who stood by, and heard
it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him.
30Jesus answered and said, This voice did not come because of
me, but for your sakes. 31Now is the judgment
of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all
men to me. 33 This he said, signifying what death he
should die. 34The people answered him, We have heard out of the
law that Christ abides for ever: and how do you say, The Son of man must
be lifted up? who is this Son of man? 35Then Jesus said to them,
Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light,
lest darkness comes on you: for he who walks in darkness does not know where
he goes. 36While you have light, believe in the light, that you
may be the children of light. These things Jesus spoke and departed and hid
himself from them.
37But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they
did not believe in him: 38That the saying
of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who has believed
our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again,
40He has 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. 41These things
Isaiah said, when he saw his glory and spoke of him.
42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed in him;
but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they
should be put out of the synagogue: 43For they loved the praise
of men more than the praise of God.
44 Jesus cried and said, He who believes in me, believes not in
me, but in him who sent me. 45And he who sees me sees him who
sent me. 46I am come as a light into the world, so that whoever
believes in me should not abide in darkness. 47And if any man
hear my words and believe not, I do not judge him: for I did not come to
judge the world, but to save the world. 48He who rejects me and
receives not my words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken,
the same shall judge him in the last day. 49For I have not spoken
of myself; but the Father who sent me gave me a commandment, what I should
say and what I should speak. 50And I know that his commandment
is life everlasting: therefore whatever I speak, even as the Father spoke
to me, so I speak.
1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his
hour was come that he would depart out of this world to the Father, having
loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
2And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart
of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; 3Jesus
knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands and that he was
come from God and went to God; 4He rose from supper and laid aside
his garments; and took a towel and girded himself. 5After that
he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to
wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. 6Then
he came to Simon Peter: and Peter said to him, Lord, do you wash my feet?
7Jesus answered and said to him, What I do you do not know now;
but you shall know afterward. 8Peter said to him, You shall never
wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I do not wash you, you have no part
with me. 9Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but
also my hands and my head. 10Jesus said to him,
He who is washed needs only to wash his feet and is clean every
where: and you are clean, but not all. 11For he knew who would
betray him; therefore he said, You are not all clean. 12So after
he had washed their feet and had taken his garments and had sat down again,
he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call
me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. 14If
I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought
to wash each other's feet. 15For I have given you an example,
that you should do as I have done to you. 16Verily, verily, I
say to you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he who is sent
greater than he who sent him. 17If you know these things, happy
are you if you do them.
18I do not speak of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that
the scripture may be fulfilled, He who eats bread with me has lifted up his
heel against me. 19Now I tell you before it comes, that, when
it is comes to pass, you may believe that I am he.
20Verily, verily, I say to you, He who receives whomever I send
receives me; and he who receives me receives him who sent me.
21When Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit and testified
and said, Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you shall betray me.
22Then the disciples looked at one another, doubting of whom he
spoke. 23Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples,
whom Jesus loved. 24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that
he should ask who it would be of whom he spoke. 25He then lying
on Jesus' breast said to him, Lord, who is it? 26Jesus 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 Iscariot, the
son of Simon. 27And after the sop Satan entered into him.
Then said Jesus to him, That which you do, do quickly. 28Now no
man at the table knew for what intent he spoke this to him. 29For
some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had
said to him, Buy those things that we have need of for the feast;
or, that he should give something to the poor. 30He then having
received the sop went out immediately: and it was night.
31Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son
of man glorified and God is glorified in him. 32If God is glorified
in him, God shall also glorify him in himself and shall immediately glorify
him. 33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You
shall seek me: and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you. Where I go,
you cannot come. 34A new commandment I give to you, That you love
one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35By this shall all men know that you are my disciples,
if you have love one to another.
36Simon Peter said to him, Lord, where are you going? Jesus answered
him, Where I go, you can not follow me now; but you shall follow me afterward.
37Peter said to him, Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will
lay down my life for your sake. 38Jesus answered him, Will you
lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say to you, The cock shall
not crow, till you have denied me three times.
1Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also
in me. 2In 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.
3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and
receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4And you know, where I go and the way you know. 5Thomas
said to him, Lord, we do not know where you are going and how can we know
the way? 6Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth and the life:
no man comes to the Father, but by me. 7If you had known me, you
should have known my Father also: and from now on you know him and have seen
him. 8Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father and it will
satisfy us. 9Jesus said to him, Have I been with you so long a
time and yet have you have not known me, Philip? he who has seen me has seen
the Father; and how do you say, Show us the Father? 10Do you not
believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I speak
to you I speak not of myself and the Father who dwells in me does the works.
11Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in
me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
12Verily, verily, I say to you, He who believes in me, the works
that I do he shall do also; and he shall do greater works than these;
because I go to my Father. 13And what ever you shall ask in my
name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14If you shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15If you love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will
pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter, so that he may abide
with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the
world cannot receive, because it does not see him, nor know him: but you
know him; for he dwells with you and shall be in you.
18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19Yet a little while and the world sees me no more; but you will
see me: because I live, you shall live also. 20At that day you
shall know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.
21He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves
me: and he who loves me shall be loved of my Father and I will love him and
will manifest myself to him. 22Judas said to him, not Iscariot,
Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us and not to the world?
23Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves me, he will keep
my words: and my Father will love him and we will come to him and make our
abode with him. 24He who does not love me does not keep my sayings:
and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.
25These things I have spoken to you, being yet present
with you. 26But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring
all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you.
27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world
gives, I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28You have heard how I said to you, I go away and will come
again to you. If you love me, you would rejoice, because I said,
I go to the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29And now
I have told you before it comes to pass, so that, when it has come to pass,
you might believe. 30After this I will not talk much with you:
for the prince of this world comes and has nothing in me. 31But
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 from here.
1I am the true vine and my Father is the husbandman.
2Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away: and
every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, so that it may bring
forth more fruit. 3Now you are clean through the word which I
have spoken to you. 4Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot
bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can you, except
you abide in me. 5I am the vine, you are the branches:
He who abides in me and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without
me you can do nothing. 6If a man does not abide 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. 7If you abide in me and my
words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done for
you. 8In this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit;
so shall you be my disciples.
9As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you: continue in
my love. 10If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my
love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy might remain
in you and that your joy might be full. 12This is my
commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.
13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends. 14You are my friends, if you do what ever I command
you. 15From now on I do not call you servants; for the servant
does not know what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all
things that I have heard of my Father I have made known to you.
16You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you,
that you should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should
remain: that whatever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give
it to you. 17These things I command you, that you love one another.
18If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it
hated you. 19If you were of the world, the world would love
its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out
of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20Remember the word
that I said to 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 yours also. 21But they will do all these things
to you for my name's sake, because they do not know him who sent me.
22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin:
but now they have no cloke for their sin. 23He who hates me hates
my Father also. 24If I had not done among them the works which
no other man did, they would not have sin: but now they have both seen and
hated both me and my Father. 25But this comes to pass,
that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated
me without a cause.
26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from
the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father,
he shall testify of me: 27And you also shall bear witness, because
you have been with me from the beginning.
1These things have I spoken to you, that you should not be offended.
2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yes, the time comes,
that whoever kills you will think that he does God a service. 3And
they will do these things to you because they have not known the Father,
nor me. 4But I have told you these things, so that when the time
shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And I did not say these
things to you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5But now
I go my way to him who sent me; and no one of you asks me, Where are you
going? 6But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has
filled your heart.
7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that
I go away: for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but
if I depart, I will send him to you. 8And when he is come, he
will reprove the world of sin and of righteousness and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they do not believe in me; 10Of
righteousness, because I go to my Father and you will see me no more;
11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them
now. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide
you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but what ever he shall
hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine and shall
show it to you. 15All things that the Father has are
mine: therefore I said, that he shall take of mine and shall show it
16A little while and you shall not see me: and again, a little
while and you shall see me, because I go to the Father. 17Then
some of his disciples said among themselves, What is this that he
said to us, A little while and you shall not see me: and again, a little
while and you shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18They said therefore, What is this that he said, A little while?
we cannot tell what he said. 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous
to ask him and said to them, Do you enquire among yourselves of what I said,
A little while and you shall not see me: and again, a little while and you
shall see me? 20Verily, verily, I say to you, That you shall weep
and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be sorrowful, but
your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21A woman when she is in
travail has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered
of the child, she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born
into the world. 22And you now therefore have sorrow: but I will
see you again and your heart shall rejoice and no man takes your joy from
23And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I
say to you, Whatever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give
it to you. 24Till now you have asked nothing in my name:
ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25These
things I have spoken to you in proverbs: but the time comes, when I shall
no more speak to you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father.
26At that day you shall ask in my name: and I do not say to you,
that I will pray the Father for you: 27For the Father himself
loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came out from
28I came forth from the Father and am come into the world: again,
I leave the world and go to the Father. 29His disciples said to
him, Lo, now you speak plainly and you speak no proverb. 30Now
are we sure that you know all things and do not need that any man should
ask you: by this we believe that you came forth from God. 31Jesus
answered them, Do you now believe? 32Behold, the hour comes, yes,
is now come, that you 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.
33These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have
peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have
overcome the world.
1These words Jesus spoke and lifted up his eyes to heaven and
said, Father, the hour is come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may
glorify you: 2As you have given him power over all flesh, that
he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. 3And
this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God and Jesus
Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have glorified you on the earth:
I have finished the work which you gave me to do. 5And now, O
Father, glorify me with your own self with the glory which I had with you
before the world was.
6I have manifested your name to the men who you gave me out of
the world: yours they were, and you gave them to me; and they have kept your
word. 7Now they have known that all things whatever you have given
me are of you. 8For I have given to them the words which you gave
me; and they have received them and have known surely that I came
out from you and they have believed that you sent me. 9I pray
for them: I do not pray for the world, but for those who you have given me;
for they are yours. 10And all mine are yours and yours are mine;
and I am glorified in them.
11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world
and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you
have given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While
I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name: those who you gave
me I have kept and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the
scripture might be fulfilled. 13And now I come to you; and these
things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because
they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I
do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you should
keep them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even
as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.
18As you have sent me into the world, even so I have also sent
them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself,
that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20Neither do I pray for these alone, but for them also who shall
believe in me through their word; 21That they all may be one;
as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be one
in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22And
the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even
as we are one: 23I in them and you in me, that they may be made
perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me and have
loved them, as you have loved me.
24Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with
me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for
you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous
Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you and these have
known that you have sent me. 26And I have declared to them your
name and will declare it: that the love with which you have loved
me may be in them and I in them.
1When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples
over the brook Kidron, where a garden was, into which he entered and his
disciples. 2And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place:
for Jesus often resorted there with his disciples. 3Judas then,
having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests
and Pharisees, came there with lanterns and torches and weapons.
4Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come on him,
went out and said to them, Whom do you seek? 5They answered him,
Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said to them, I am he. And Judas also,
who betrayed him, stood with them. 6 Then as soon as he had said
to them, I am he, they went backward and fell to the ground.
7Then he asked them again, Whom do you seek? And they said, Jesus
of Nazareth. 8Jesus answered, I have told you that I am
he: if therefore you seek me, let these go their way:
9That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Of those
whom you gave me I have lost no one. 10Then Simon Peter having
a sword drew it and struck the high priest's servant and cut off his right
ear. The servant's name was Malchus. 11Then said Jesus to Peter,
Put up your sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father has given me,
shall I not drink it? 12Then the band and the captain and officers
of the Jews took Jesus and bound him,
13And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to
Caiaphas, who was the high priest that same year. 14Now Caiaphas
was he, who gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man
should die for the people. 15And Simon Peter followed Jesus and
so did another disciple: that disciple was known to the high priest
and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. 16But
Peter stood at the door outside. Then that other disciple went out, who was
known to the high priest and spoke to her who kept the door and brought Peter
inside. 17Then the damsel that kept the door said to Peter, Are
you not also one of this man's disciples? He said, I am not.
18And 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. 19The high priest then asked Jesus of
his disciples and of his doctrine. 20Jesus answered him, I spoke
openly to the world; I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple,
where the Jews always resort; and I have said nothing in secret.
21Why do you ask me? ask those who heard me, what I have said
to them: behold, they know what I said. 22And when he had thus
spoken, one of the officers who stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his
hand, saying, Do you answer the high priest so? 23Jesus answered
him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why did
you strike me? 24Now Annas had sent him bound to Caiaphas the
high priest. 25And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. Therefore
they said to him, Are you not also one of his disciples? He denied
it and said, I am not. 26One of the servants of the high
priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, said, Did I not
see you in the garden with him? 27Peter then denied again: and
immediately the cock crowed.
28Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment: and
it was early; and they themselves did not go into the judgment hall, lest
they should be defiled; so that they might eat the passover.
29Pilate then went out to them and said, What accusation do you
bring against this man? 30They answered and said to him, If he
were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered him up to you.
31Then Pilate said to them, Take him and judge him according to
your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is not lawful for us to put
any man to death: 32That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled,
which he spoke, signifying what death he should die. 33Then Pilate
entered into the judgment hall again and called Jesus and said to him, Are
you the King of the Jews? 34Jesus answered him, Do you say this
thing of yourself, or did others tell it to you of me? 35Pilate
answered, Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered
you to me: what have you done? 36Jesus answered, My kingdom is
not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would
fight, so that I would not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is
not from here. 37 Therefore Pilate said to him, Are you a king
then? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. To this end was I born and
for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth.
Every one who is of the truth hears my voice. 38Pilate said to
him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews
and said to them, I find no fault in him at all. 39But
you have a custom, that I should release to you one at the passover: therefore
will you that I release to you the King of the Jews? 40Then they
all cried again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
1Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged him.
2And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns and put it
on his head and they put a purple robe on him, 3And said, Hail,
King of the Jews! and they struck him with their hands. 4Pilate
therefore went out again and said to them, Behold, I bring him out to you,
so that you may know that I find no fault in him. 5Then Jesus
came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And
Pilate said to them, Behold the man! 6When the chief
priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify
him, crucify him. Pilate said to them, Take him and crucify
him: for I find no fault in him. 7The Jews answered him,
We have a law and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the
Son of God. 8Therefore when Pilate heard that saying, he was more
afraid; 9And went again into the judgment hall and said to Jesus,
Where are you from? But Jesus gave him no answer. 10Then said
Pilate to him, Do you not speak to me? Do you not know that I have power
to crucify you, and have power to release you? 11Jesus answered,
You could have no power at all against me, except it were given
you from above: therefore he who delivered me to you has the greater sin.
12And from then on Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews
cried out, saying, If you let this man go, you are not Caesar's friend: whoever
makes himself a king speaks against Caesar. 13When Pilate therefore
heard that saying, he brought Jesus out and sat down in the judgment seat
in a place that is called the Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14And it was the preparation of the passover week and about the
sixth hour: and he said to the Jews, Behold your King! 15But they
cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate
said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have
no king but Caesar.
16Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. And
they took Jesus and led him away. 17And he bearing his
cross went out into a place called the place of a skull, which is
called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 18Where they crucified him and
two others with him, one, on either side and Jesus in the middle.
19And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And
the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20Then
many of the Jews read this title: for the place where Jesus was crucified
was near the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek,
and Latin. 21Then the chief priests of the Jews said
to Pilate, Do not write, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King
of the Jews. 22Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
23Then when the soldiers had crucified Jesus they took his garments
and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his tunic:
now the tunic was without a seam, woven throughout from the top .
24Therefore they said among themselves, Let us not tear it, but
cast lots for it for whose it shall be: so that the scripture might be fulfilled,
which said, They parted my clothes among them and for my vesture they cast
lots. Therefore the soldiers did these things . 25Now his mother
and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene
stood by the cross of Jesus. 26Therefore when Jesus saw his mother
and the disciple whom he loved standing by, he said to his mother, Woman,
behold your son! 27Then he said to the disciple, Behold your mother!
And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.
28After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished,
so that the scripture might be fulfilled, he said, I thirst. 29Now
a vessel full of vinegar was set there: and they filled a sponge with vinegar
and put it on hyssop and put it to his mouth. 30
Therefore when Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and
he bowed his head, and gave up the Spirit.
31Therefore because it was the preparation
of the sabbath, the Jews asked of Pilate that their legs might be
broken, so that they might be taken away so that the bodies would
not remain on the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was a high
day). 32Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first
and of the other who was crucified with him. 33But when they came
to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs:
34But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side and
immediately there came out blood and water. 35And he who saw
it bore record and his record is true: and he knows that he says
the truth, so that you might believe. 36For these things were
done, so that the scripture would be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be
broken. 37And again another scripture said, They shall look on
him whom they pierced.
38And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus,
but secretly for fear of the Jews, begged Pilate that he might take away
the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. Therefore he came
and took the body of Jesus. 39And Nicodemus who at the first came
to Jesus by night came also and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about
a hundred pounds weight. 40Then they took the body of
Jesus and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the
Jews is to bury. 41Now in the place where he was crucified there
was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb, in which man was never yet laid.
42 Therefore they laid Jesus there because of the Jews' preparation
day; for the tomb was near at hand.
1 The first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early,
when it was yet dark, to the tomb and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.
2Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple,
whom Jesus loved and said to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the
tomb and we do not know where they have laid him. 3Therefore Peter
and that other disciple went out and came to the tomb. 4So they
both ran together: and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb
first. 5And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the
linen clothes lying; yet he did not go in. 6Then Simon Peter came
following him and went into the tomb and saw the linen clothes lie,
7And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen
clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8Then that
other disciple who came first to the tomb went in also, and he saw and believed.
9For as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must rise
again from the dead. 10Then the disciples went away again to their
11But Mary stood outside at the tomb weeping: and as she wept,
she stooped down, and looked into the tomb, 12And saw
two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet,
where the body of Jesus had lain. 13And they said to her, Woman,
why do you weep? She said to them, Because they have taken away my Lord and
I do not know where they have laid him. 14And when she had thus
said, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing and did not know that
it was Jesus. 15Jesus said to her, Woman, why are you weeping?
whom do you seek? She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, Sir,
if you have carried him from here, tell me where you have laid him and I
will take him away. 16Jesus said to her, Mary. She turned herself,
and said to him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. 17Jesus said
to her, Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to my Father: but go
to my brothers and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father; and
to my God and your God. 18Mary Magdalene came and told
the disciples that she had seen the Lord and that he had spoken
these things to her.
19Then 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, Jesus came and stood in the midst and said to them, Peace
be to you. 20And when he had so said, he showed them
his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad, when they
saw the Lord. 21Then Jesus said to them again, Peace be
to you: as my Father has sent me, even so I send you.
22And when he had said this, he breathed on them and
said to them, Receive you the Holy Spirit: 23Whose sins you remit,
they are remitted to them; and whose sins you retain, they
are retained. 24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus,
was not with them when Jesus came. 25Therefore the other disciples
said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to 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.
26And after eight days again his disciples were within and Thomas
with them: then Jesus came, the doors being shut and stood in the
midst and said, Peace be to you. 27Then he said to Thomas,
Reach here your finger and behold my hands; and reach here your hand and
thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28And Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God.
29Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have
believed: blessed are those who have not seen and yet have
believed. 30And many other signs Jesus truly did in the presence
of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31But these
are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of
God; and that believing you might have life through his name.
1After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples
at the sea of Tiberias; and in this way he showed himself.
2There were together Simon Peter and Thomas called Didymus and
Nathanael of Cana in Galilee and the sons of Zebedee and two others
of his disciples. 3Simon Peter said to them, I am going fishing.
They said to him, We also are going with you. Immediately they went out and
entered into a ship; and that night they caught nothing. 4But
when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples
did not know that it was Jesus. 5Then Jesus said to them, Children,
have you any meat? They answered him, No. 6And he said to them,
Cast the net on the right side of the ship and you shall find. Therefore
they cast it and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fish.
7Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is
the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded
his fisher's coat on him, (for he was naked,) and cast
himself into the sea. 8And the other disciples came in a little
ship; (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits,) dragging
the net with fish. 9Then as soon as they had come to land, they
saw a fire of coals there and fish laid on it and bread. 10Jesus
said to them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught. 11Simon
Peter went up and drew the net to land full of great fish, a hundred and
fifty three: and even though there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
12Jesus said to them, Come and dine. And none of the
disciples dared ask him, Who are you? knowing that it was the Lord.
13Jesus then came and took bread and gave it to them and fish
likewise. 14This is now the third time that Jesus showed himself
to his disciples, after he had risen from the dead.
15So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon,
son of Jonas, do you love me more than these? He said to him, Yes,
Lord; you know that I love you. He said to him, Feed my lambs.
16He said to him again the second time, Simon, son of
Jonas, do you love me? He said to him, Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.
He said to him, Feed my sheep. 17He said to him the third time,
Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me? Peter was grieved because he
said to him the third time, Do you love me? And he said to him, Lord, you
know all things; you know that I love you. Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep.
18Verily, verily, I say to you, When you were young, you girded
yourself and walked where you would: but when you shall be old, you shall
stretch out your hands and another shall gird you and carry you
where you would not. 19 This he spoke, signifying by what death
he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he said to him, Follow
20Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple
whom Jesus loved following; who also leaned on his breast at supper and said,
Lord, who is he who betrays you? 21Peter seeing him said to Jesus,
Lord and what shall this man do? 22Jesus said
to him, If I will that he waits till I come, what is that to you?
you follow me. 23Then this saying went abroad among the brothers,
that that disciple would not die: yet Jesus did not say to him, He shall
not die; but, If I will that he waits till I come, what is that
to you? 24This is the disciple who testifies of these things and
wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25And
there are also many other things which Jesus did, which, if they would be
written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain
the books that would be written. Amen.
