Book 43: John
001:001 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
001:002 The same was in the beginning with God.
001:003 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
001:004 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
001:005 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
001:006 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
001:007 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
001:008 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
001:009 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
001:010 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
001:011 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
001:012 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
001:013 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
001:014 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
001:015 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
001:016 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
001:017 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
001:018 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
001:019 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
001:020 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
001:021 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
001:022 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
001:023 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
001:024 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
001:025 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?
001:026 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
001:027 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
001:028 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
001:029 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
001:030 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
001:031 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
001:032 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
001:033 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
001:034 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
001:035 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
001:036 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
001:037 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
001:038 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
001:039 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
001:040 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
001:041 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
001:042 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
001:043 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
001:044 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
001:045 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
001:046 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
001:047 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
001:048 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
001:049 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
001:050 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.
001:051 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
002:001 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
002:002 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
002:003 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
002:004 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
002:005 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
002:006 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
002:007 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
002:008 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
002:009 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
002:010 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
002:011 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
002:012 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
002:013 And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
002:014 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
002:015 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
002:016 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
002:017 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
002:018 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
002:019 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
002:020 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
002:021 But he spake of the temple of his body.
002:022 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
002:023 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
002:024 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
002:025 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
003:001 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
003:002 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
003:003 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
003:004 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
003:005 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
003:006 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
003:007 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
003:008 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
003:009 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
003:010 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
003:011 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
003:012 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
003:013 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
003:014 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
003:015 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
003:016 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
003:017 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
003:018 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
003:019 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
003:020 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
003:021 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
003:022 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
003:023 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
003:024 For John was not yet cast into prison.
003:025 Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying.
003:026 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
003:027 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
003:028 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
003:029 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
003:030 He must increase, but I must decrease.
003:031 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
003:032 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
003:033 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
003:034 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
003:035 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
003:036 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
004:001 When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
004:002 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
004:003 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
004:004 And he must needs go through Samaria.
004:005 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
004:006 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
004:007 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
004:008 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
004:009 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
004:010 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
004:011 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
004:012 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
004:013 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
004:014 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
004:015 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
004:016 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
004:017 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
004:018 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
004:019 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
004:020 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
004:021 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
004:022 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
004:023 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
004:024 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
004:025 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
004:026 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
004:027 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
004:028 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
004:029 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
004:030 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
004:031 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
004:032 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
004:033 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
004:034 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
004:035 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
004:036 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
004:037 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
004:038 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
004:039 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
004:040 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
004:041 And many more believed because of his own word;
004:042 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
004:043 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
004:044 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
004:045 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
004:046 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
004:047 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
004:048 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
004:049 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
004:050 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
004:051 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
004:052 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
004:053 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
004:054 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
005:001 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
005:002 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
005:003 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
005:004 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
005:005 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
005:006 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
005:007 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
005:008 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
005:009 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
005:010 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
005:011 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
005:012 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
005:013 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
005:014 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
005:015 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
005:016 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
005:017 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
005:018 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
005:019 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
005:020 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
005:021 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
005:022 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
005:023 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
005:024 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
005:025 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
005:026 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
005:027 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
005:028 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
005:029 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
005:030 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
005:031 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
005:032 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
005:033 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
005:034 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
005:035 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
005:036 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
005:037 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
005:038 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
005:039 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
005:040 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
005:041 I receive not honour from men.
005:042 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
005:043 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
005:044 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
005:045 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
005:046 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
005:047 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
006:001 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
006:002 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
006:003 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
006:004 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
006:005 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
006:006 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
006:007 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
006:008 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,
006:009 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
006:010 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
006:011 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
006:012 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
006:013 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
006:014 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
006:015 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
006:016 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
006:017 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
006:018 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
006:019 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
006:020 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
006:021 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
006:022 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
006:023 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
006:024 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
006:025 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
006:026 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
006:027 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
006:028 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
006:029 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
006:030 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
006:031 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
006:032 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
006:033 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
006:034 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
006:035 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
006:036 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
006:037 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
006:038 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
006:039 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
006:040 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
006:041 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
006:042 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
006:043 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
006:044 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
006:045 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
006:046 not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
006:047 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
006:048 I am that bread of life.
006:049 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
006:050 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
006:051 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
006:052 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
006:053 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
006:054 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
006:055 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
006:056 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
006:057 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
006:058 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
006:059 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
006:060 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
006:061 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
006:062 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
006:063 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
006:064 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
006:065 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
006:066 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
006:067 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
006:068 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
006:069 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
006:070 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
006:071 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
007:001 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
007:002 Now the Jew’s feast of tabernacles was at hand.
007:003 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
007:004 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
007:005 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
007:006 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
007:007 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
007:008 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.
007:009 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
007:010 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
007:011 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
007:012 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
007:013 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
007:014 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
007:015 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
007:016 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
007:017 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
007:018 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
007:019 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
007:020 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
007:021 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
007:022 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
007:023 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
007:024 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
007:025 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
007:026 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
007:027 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
007:028 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
007:029 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
007:030 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
007:031 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
007:032 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
007:033 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
007:034 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
007:035 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
007:036 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
007:037 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
007:038 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
007:039 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
007:040 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
007:041 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
007:042 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
007:043 So there was a division among the people because of him.
007:044 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
007:045 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
007:046 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
007:047 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
007:048 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
007:049 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
007:050 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
007:051 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
007:052 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
007:053 And every man went unto his own house.
008:001 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
008:002 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
008:003 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
008:004 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
008:005 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
008:006 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
008:007 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
008:008 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
008:009 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
008:010 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
008:011 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
008:012 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
008:013 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
008:014 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
008:015 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
008:016 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
008:017 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
008:018 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
008:019 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
008:020 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
008:021 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
008:022 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
008:023 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
008:024 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
008:025 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
008:026 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
008:027 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
008:028 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
008:029 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
008:030 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
008:031 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
008:032 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
008:033 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
008:034 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
008:035 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
008:036 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
008:037 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
008:038 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
008:039 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
008:040 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
008:041 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
008:042 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
008:043 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
008:044 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
008:045 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
008:046 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
008:047 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
008:048 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
008:049 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
008:050 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
008:051 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
008:052 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
008:053 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
008:054 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
008:055 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
008:056 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
008:057 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
008:058 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
008:059 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
009:001 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
009:002 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
009:003 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
009:004 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
009:005 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
009:006 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
009:007 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
009:008 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
009:009 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
009:010 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
009:011 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
009:012 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
009:013 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
009:014 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
009:015 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
009:016 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
009:017 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
009:018 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
009:019 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
009:020 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
009:021 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
009:022 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
009:023 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
009:024 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
009:025 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
009:026 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
009:027 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
009:028 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.
009:029 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
009:030 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
009:031 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
009:032 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
009:033 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
009:034 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
009:035 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
009:036 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
009:037 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
009:038 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
009:039 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
009:040 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
009:041 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
010:001 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
010:002 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
010:003 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
010:004 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
010:005 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
010:006 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
010:007 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
010:008 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
010:009 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
010:010 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
010:011 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
010:012 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
010:013 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
010:014 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
010:015 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
010:016 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
010:017 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
010:018 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
010:019 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
010:020 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
010:021 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
010:022 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
010:023 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
010:024 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
010:025 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
010:026 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
010:027 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
010:028 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
010:029 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
010:030 I and my Father are one.
010:031 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
010:032 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
010:033 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
010:034 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
010:035 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
010:036 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
010:037 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
010:038 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
010:039 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
010:040 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
010:041 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
010:042 And many believed on him there.
011:001 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
011:002 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
011:003 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
011:004 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
011:005 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
011:006 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
011:007 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.
011:008 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
011:009 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.
011:010 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.
011:011 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
011:012 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
011:013 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
011:014 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
011:015 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
011:016 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
011:017 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
011:018 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
011:019 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
011:020 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
011:021 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
011:022 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
011:023 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
011:024 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
011:025 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
011:026 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
011:027 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
011:028 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
011:029 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.
011:030 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.
011:031 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
011:032 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
011:033 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.
011:034 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
011:035 Jesus wept.
011:036 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
011:037 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
011:038 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
011:039 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
011:040 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
011:041 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
011:042 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
011:043 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
011:044 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
011:045 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
011:046 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.
011:047 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
011:048 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
011:049 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
011:050 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
011:051 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
011:052 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
011:053 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
011:054 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
011:055 And the Jews’ passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.
011:056 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
011:057 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
012:001 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
012:002 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
012:003 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
012:004 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
012:005 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
012:006 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
012:007 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
012:008 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
012:009 Much 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.
012:010 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
012:011 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
012:012 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
012:013 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
012:014 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
012:015 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
012:016 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
012:017 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
012:018 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
012:019 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
012:020 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
012:021 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
012:022 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
012:023 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
012:024 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
012:025 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
012:026 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
012:027 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
012:028 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
012:029 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
012:030 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
012:031 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
012:032 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
012:033 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
012:034 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
012:035 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
012:036 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
012:037 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
012:038 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
012:039 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
012:040 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
012:041 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
012:042 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
012:043 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
012:044 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
012:045 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
012:046 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
012:047 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
012:048 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
012:049 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
012:050 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
013:001 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
013:002 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him;
013:003 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
013:004 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
013:005 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
013:006 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
013:007 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
013:008 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
013:009 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
013:010 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
013:011 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
013:012 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
013:013 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
013:014 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
013:015 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
013:016 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
013:017 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
013:018 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
013:019 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
013:020 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
013:021 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
013:022 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
013:023 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
013:024 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
013:025 He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
013:026 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
013:027 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
013:028 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
013:029 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
013:030 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
013:031 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
013:032 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
013:033 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
013:034 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
013:035 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
013:036 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
013:037 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
013:038 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, until thou hast denied me thrice.
014:001 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
014:002 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
014:003 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
014:004 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
014:005 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
014:006 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
014:007 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
014:008 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
014:009 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
014:010 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
014:011 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
014:012 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
014:013 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
014:014 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
014:015 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
014:016 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
014:017 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
014:018 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
014:019 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
014:020 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
014:021 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
014:022 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
014:023 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
014:024 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
014:025 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
014:026 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
014:027 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
014:028 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
014:029 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
014:030 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
014:031 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
015:001 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
015:002 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
015:003 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
015:004 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
015:005 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
015:006 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
015:007 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
015:008 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
015:009 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
015:010 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
015:011 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
015:012 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
015:013 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
015:014 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
015:015 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
015:016 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
015:017 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
015:018 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
015:019 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
015:020 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
015:021 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
015:022 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
015:023 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
015:024 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
015:025 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
015:026 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
015:027 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
016:001 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
016:002 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
016:003 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
016:004 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
016:005 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
016:006 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
016:007 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
016:008 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
016:009 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
016:010 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
016:011 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
016:012 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
016:013 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
016:014 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
016:015 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
016:016 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
016:017 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
016:018 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
016:019 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
016:020 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
016:021 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
016:022 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
016:023 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
016:024 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
016:025 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
016:026 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
016:027 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
016:028 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
016:029 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
016:030 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
016:031 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
016:032 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
016:033 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
017:001 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
017:002 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
017:003 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
017:004 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
017:005 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
017:006 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
017:007 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
017:008 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
017:009 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
017:010 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
017:011 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
017:012 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
017:013 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
017:014 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
017:015 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
017:016 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
017:017 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
017:018 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
017:019 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
017:020 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
017:021 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
017:022 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
017:023 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
017:024 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
017:025 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
017:026 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
018:001 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
018:002 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
018:003 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
018:004 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
018:005 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
018:006 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
018:007 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
018:008 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
018:009 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
018:010 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
018:011 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
018:012 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
018:013 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
018:014 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
018:015 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
018:016 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
018:017 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not.
018:018 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
018:019 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
018:020 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
018:021 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
018:022 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
018:023 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
018:024 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
018:025 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
018:026 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
018:027 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
018:028 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
018:029 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
018:030 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
018:031 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
018:032 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.
018:033 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
018:034 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
018:035 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
018:036 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
018:037 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
018:038 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
018:039 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
018:040 Then cried they all again, saying, not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
019:001 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
019:002 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
019:003 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
019:004 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
019:005 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
019:006 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
019:007 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
019:008 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
019:009 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
019:010 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
019:011 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
019:012 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
019:013 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
019:014 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
019:015 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
019:016 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
019:017 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
019:018 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
019:019 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
019:020 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
019:021 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
019:022 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
019:023 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
019:024 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
019:025 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
019:026 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
019:027 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
019:028 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
019:029 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
019:030 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
019:031 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
019:032 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
019:033 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
019:034 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
019:035 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
019:036 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
019:037 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
019:038 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
019:039 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
019:040 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
019:041 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
019:042 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
020:001 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
020:002 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
020:003 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
020:004 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
020:005 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
020:006 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
020:007 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
020:008 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
020:009 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
020:010 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
020:011 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
020:012 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
020:013 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.
020:014 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
020:015 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
020:016 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
020:017 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
020:018 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
020:019 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
020:020 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.
020:021 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
020:022 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
020:023 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
020:024 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
020:025 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
020:026 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
020:027 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
020:028 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God.
020:029 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
020:030 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
020:031 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
021:001 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
021:002 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
021:003 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
021:004 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
021:005 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
021:006 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
021:007 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
021:008 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
021:009 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
021:010 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
021:011 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
021:012 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
021:013 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
021:014 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
021:015 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
021:016 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
021:017 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
021:018 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
021:019 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
021:020 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
021:021 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
021:022 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry until I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
021:023 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry until I come, what is that to thee?
021:024 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
021:025 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
