According To John

Chapter 1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 This one was in the beginning with God. 3 All things became through him, and without him not one thing became which has become. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men; 5 and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overpower it. 6 There was a man, who was sent from God, his name was John; 7 this man came for a witness, that he might witness concerning the light, that all men might believe through him. 8 He was not that light, but that he might witness concerning the light. 9 It was the true light, which enlightens every man, that was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world became through him, and the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own things, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But as many as received him, he gave to them the right to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, 13 who were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of a man but of God. 14 And the word became flesh and tabernacled among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of an only begotten from a father, full of grace and of truth. 15 John witnessed concerning him and cried out saying, “This man was he of whom I said, ‘The one coming after me has become greater than me, because he existed before me.’” 16 Because we all received of his fullness, and grace upon grace; 17 because the law was given through Moses, the grace and truth became through Jesus Christ. 18 No man has ever seen God; the only begotten God who was in the bosom of the Father, that one declared him.

19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites to him from Jerusalem that they might ask him, “Who are you?” 20 And he confessed and did not deny, and he confessed, “I am not the Christ.” 21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elias?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you the prophet?” And he answered, “No.” 22 They therefore said to him, “Who are you? That we may give an answer to the ones who have sent us; what do you say concerning yourself?” 23 He said, I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as Esias the prophet said.” 24 And the ones who had been sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him and said to him, “Then why do you baptize if you are not the Christ nor Elias nor the prophet?” 26 John answered them saying, “I baptize in water; among you stands one whom you do not know, 27 the one who comes after me, of whom I am not worthy that I should loosen the thong of his sandal.” 28 These things happened in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 On the morrow he sees Jesus coming toward him and says, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes the sin of the world. 30 This is he as to whom I said, ‘A man comes after me who has become greater than me, because he existed before me.’ 31 And I did not know him, but that he might be manifested to Israel, I therefore came baptizing in water.” 32 And John witnessed saying, “I have beheld the Spirit coming down as a dove out of heaven, and he remained on him. 33 And I did not know him, but the one who had sent me to baptize in water, that one said to me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on him, this is the one who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen, and have witnessed that this one is the Son of God.”

35 On the morrow John and two of his disciples stood, and looking at Jesus walking he said, “Behold the Lamb of God.” 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking and they followed Jesus. 38 And Jesus, turning and beholding them following, said to them, “What do you seek?” And they said to him, “Rabbi (which is translated ‘Teacher’), where do you remain?” 39 He said to them, “Come and you will see.” They went therefore and saw where he remained, and remained that day with him; it was about the tenth hour. 40 It was Andrew the brother of Simon Peter who was one of the two who heard from John and followed him; 41 this one first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah, (which is translated ‘Christ’). 42 He led him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, “You are Simon the son of John, you shall be called Cephas (which is translated ‘Peter’). 43 On the morrow he wished to go forth into Galilee, and found Philip. And Jesus said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and of Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found he of whom Moses wrote in the law and the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.” 46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said concerning him, “Behold, truly an Israelite, in whom is no guile.” 48 Nathanael said to him, “From where do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you I saw you under the fig-tree.” 49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are king of Israel.” 50 Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I told you that I saw you underneath the fig-tree, you believe? You shall see things greater than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly I tell you, you shall see that the heaven has been opened and the angels of God going up and coming down on the Son of man.”

Chapter 2

And on the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; 2 and both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding. 3 And when wine was lacking the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4 And Jesus said to her, “What is it to me and to you, woman? My hour is not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Whatever he tells you, do.” 6 Now there were lying there six stone water-pots according to the purification of the Jews, each containing two or three measures. 7 Jesus told them, “Fill the water-pots with water.” And they filled them up to the top. 8 And he told them, “Now draw and carry to the master of the feast.” And they carried. 9 But when the master of the feast tasted that the water had become wine, and did not know where it came from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew, the master of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Every man sets forth the good wine first, and the worse when they become drunk; you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 Jesus did this beginning of the signs in Cana of Galilee and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples, and remained there a few days.

13 And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 And he found those who sell oxen and sheep and doves and the coin-dealers sitting in the temple, 15 and after making a lash out of ropes he expelled all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the coins of the moneychangers and overturned the tables, 16 and said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away, do not make the house of my Father a house of merchandise.” 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “The zeal for your house will consume me.” 18 Therefore the Jews answered and said to him, “What sign do you show to us, because you do these things?” 19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this shrine, and in three days I will raise it.” 20 Therefore the Jews said, “This shrine was built in forty-six years, and you will raise it in three days?” 21 But he spoke about the shrine of his body. 22 When he was therefore raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this, and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus said.

23 And when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover at the feast, many believed in his name, beholding his signs which he was doing; 24 but Jesus did not commit himself to them, because he knew all men, 25 and because he had no need that anyone should witness concerning man; for he knew what was in man.

Chapter 3

Now there was a man of the Pharisees, Nicodemus his name, a ruler of the Jews; 2 this man came to him by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you have come as a teacher from God; for no one can do these signs which you do, except God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly I tell you, except anyone is born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus says to him, “How can a man who is old be born? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly I tell you, except anyone is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 The thing that has been born of flesh is flesh, and the thing that has been born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel because I told you, ‘You must be born from above.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know from where it comes and where it goes; so is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus answered and said to him, “How can these things come about?” 10 Jesus answered and said to him, “You are the teacher of Israel and do not know these things? 11 Truly, truly I tell you, ‘What we know we speak and what we have seen we witness, and you do not receive our witness.’ 12 If I told you the earthly things and you did not believe, how will you believe if I tell you the heavenly things? 13 And no man has gone up into heaven except the one who has come down out of heaven, the Son of man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up 15 that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. 16 For God thus loved the world, so that he gave his only begotten Son, that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world that he might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him. 18 The one who believes in him is not judged; the one who does not believe has already been judged, because he has not believed in the name of he only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works are reproved; 21 but the one who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be manifested that they are what has been wrought in God.”

22 After these things Jesus and his disciples came into the Judaean land, and continued there with them and baptized. 23 And John was also baptizing in Ainon near Salim, because there were many waters there, and they came and were baptized; 24 for John had not yet been cast into the prison. 25 There was therefore a questioning of John’s disciples with a Jew about purifying. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, he who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you had born witness, behold, this man baptizes and all men are coming to him.” 27 John answered and said, “A man cannot receive anything unless it has been given to him out of heaven. 28 You yourselves bear witness to me that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but that ‘I am one who has been sent before that one.’ 29 The one who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices with joy because of the voice of the bridegroom. Therefore by this my joy has been fulfilled. 30 That one must increase, but I must decrease. 31 The one who comes from above is over all; the one who is of the earth if of the earth and speaks of the earth. The one who comes from heaven is over all; 32 what he has seen and heard, this he witnesses to, and no man receives his witness. 33 The one who received his witness sealed that God is true. 34 For he whom God sent speaks the words of God; for he does not give the Spirit by measure. 35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand. 36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life; but the one who disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”

Chapter 4

Therefore when the Lord knew that the Pharisees heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, - 2 though Jesus himself did not baptize but his disciples,- 3 he left Judaea and went away again into Galilee. 4 And he had to pass through Samaria. 5 He therefore came to a city of Samaria that is called Sychar, near the piece of land which Jacob gave to Joseph his son; 6 and a fountain of Jacob was there. Jesus had become wearied and therefore sat thus at the fountain; it was about the sixth hour. 7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me to drink.” 8 For his disciples had gone away into the city, that they might buy foods.” 9 The Samaritan woman therefore said to him, “How do you who is a Jew ask to drink from me who is a Samaritan woman?” 10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is the one that says to you, ‘Give me to drink,’ you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” 11 She said to him, “Sir, you have no pail and the well is deep; from where then do you have the living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, and his sons and his cattle?” 13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water which I will give him, will by no means thirst unto the age, but the water which I will give him will become in him a fountain springing up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, that I will not thirst nor come through here to draw.” 16 He said to her, “Go call your husband and come here.” 17 The woman answered and said, “I do not have a husband.” Jesus said to her, “You say well, ‘I do not have a husband;’ for you have had five husbands; and now he whom you have is not your husband; you have said this truly.” 19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, that an hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You worship what you do not know, we worship what we know, because salvation is of the Jews; 23 but an hour is coming and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for indeed the father seeks such who will worship him; 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming, the one who is called Christ; when that one comes, he will announce all things to us.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I am, the one who speaks to you.” 27 And his disciples came on this, and marveled that he was speaking with a woman; however no one said, “What do you seek?” or “Why do you speak with her?”28 Therefore the woman left her water pot and went away into the city, and said to the men, “29 “Come see a man who told me all things which I did; is this not the Christ?” 30 They went forth out of the city and came to him. 31 In the meantime the disciples asked him saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat which you do not know.” 33 Therefore the disciples said to one another, “Has someone brought him something to eat?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the work of the one who has sent me and to finish his work. 35 Do you not say that there are yet four months and the harvest will come? Behold I tell you, lift up your eyes and behold the fields, because they are white to harvest. The one who reaps already receives wages and gathers fruit to eternal life, that the one who sows and the one who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the word is true that ‘one is the one who sows and another is the one who reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap what you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.” 39 And out of that city many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the word of the woman who witnessed, “He told me all things which I did.” 40 Therefore when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to remain with them; and he remained there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word, 42 and they said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your talk; we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man is truly the Savior of the world.”

And after the two days he went forth from there into Galilee. 44 For Jesus himself witnessed that a prophet has no honor in his own native place. 45 When he therefore came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all things which he did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also went to the feast. 46 Therefore he came again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain courtier in Capernaum whose son ailed; 47 this man had heard that Jesus came out of Judaea into Galilee, and went to him and asked that he would come down and would cure his son; for he was about to die. 48 Therefore Jesus said to him, “Except you see signs and prodigies, you will by no means believe.” 49 The courtier says to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” 50 Jesus tells him, “Go, your son lives.” The man believed the word which Jesus said to him, and went. 51 And while he was going down, his slaves met him saying that his boy lives. 52 Therefore he inquired from them the hour in which he got better; they therefore said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.” 53 Therefore the father knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus told him, “Your son lives;” and he and his whole household believed. 54 And this again was a second sign Jesus did when he came out of Judaea into Galilee.

Chapter 5

After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went to Jerusalem. 2 Now in Jerusalem there is a pool at the sheepgate, the one that is called Bethzatha in Hebrew, that has five porches. 3 In these lay a multitude of those who ailed, blind, lame, withered. 5 And there was a certain man who had been there thirty-eight years in his ailment; 6 when Jesus saw this man lying, and knowing that he had already been there much time, he said to him, “Do you wish to become whole?” 7 The ailing one answered him, “Sir, I do not have a man, that when the water is troubled he may put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another goes down before me.” 8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take your mattress and walk.” 9 And immediately the man became whole, and took his mattress and walked. And it was a Sabbath on that day. 10 Therefore the Jews said to the one who had been healed, “It is a Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take the mattress.” 11 But he answered them, “The one who made me whole, that one told me, ‘Take your mattress and walk.’”12 They asked him, “Who is the man who told you, ‘Take and walk?’” 13 But the cured one did not know who it was; for Jesus withdrew as there was a crowd in the place. 14 After these things Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you have become whole; sin no longer, lest something worse happens to you.” 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him whole. 16 And the Jews therefore persecuted Jesus, because he did these things on a Sabbath. 17 But he answered them, “My Father has worked until now, and I work;” 18 therefore because of this the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the Sabbath, but also claimed God to be his Father, making himself equal to God. 19 Therefore Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, the Son cannot do anything from himself, except what he sees the Father doing; for whatever things that one does, these also the Son likewise does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things which he does, and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21 For as the Father raises and quickens the dead, so also the Son quickens whom he wills. 22 For the Father does not judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to the Son, 23 that all men may honor the Son as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who has sent him. 24 Truly, truly I say to you, the one who hears my word and believes the one who has sent me has eternal life, and does not come into judgment but has passed over out of death into life. 25 Truly, truly I say to you, an hour comes and now is when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and the ones who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he also gave life to the Son to have life in himself. 27 And he gave him authority to do judgment, because he is (the) Son of man. 28 Do not marvel at this, because an hour comes in which all the ones in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and the ones who have done good things will come forth to a resurrection of life, the ones who have done evil things to a resurrection of judgment. 30 I cannot do anything from myself; I judge as I hear, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek my will but the will of the one who has sent me. 31 If I witness concerning myself, my witness is not true; 32 there is another who witnesses concerning me, and I know that the witness which he witnesses concerning me is true. 33 You have sent to John, and he has witnessed to the truth; 34 but I do not receive the witness from man, but I say these things that you may be saved. 35 That man was the lamp that burned and shone, and you were willing to exult for an hour in his light. 36 But I have the witness greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has given me that I may finish them, the works themselves which I do, witness concerning me that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father who has sent me, that one has witnessed concerning me. Neither have you ever heard his voice nor have you seen his form, 38 and you do not have his word remaining in you, because he whom that one sent, this one you do not believe. 39 You search the scriptures, because you think to have eternal life in them; and those are the ones that witness concerning me; 40 and you do not wish to come to me that you may have life. 41 I do not receive glory from men, 42 but I have known you that you do not have the love of God in yourselves. 43 I have come in the name of my Father, and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive that one. 44 How can you believe, if you receive glory from one another, and you do not seek the glory from the only God? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you, Moses, in whom you have hoped. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for that one wrote concerning me. 47 But if you do not believe the letters of that one, how will you believe my words?”

Chapter 6

After these things Jesus went away across the sea of Galilee, of Tiberias. 2 And a large crowd followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on the ones who ailed. 3 And Jesus went up to the mountain, and sat there with his disciples. 4 And the Passover was near, the feast of the Jews. 5 Therefore when Jesus lifted up his eyes and beheld a large crowd was coming toward him, he said to Philip, “From where may we buy loaves that these may eat?” 6 And he said this testing him; for he knew what he was about to do. 7 Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii worth of loaves are not enough for them, that each may take a little.” 8 One of his disciples, Andrew the brother of Simon Peter, said to him, 9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fishes; but what are these among so many?” 10 Jesus said, “Make the men to recline.” Now there was much grass in the place. Therefore the men, their number about five thousand, reclined. 11 Jesus therefore took the loaves and after giving thanks distributed them to those lying down, likewise also the fish as much as they wished. 12 Now when they were filled, he told his disciples, “Gather the left over fragments, that nothing is lost.” 13 Therefore they gathered, and filled twelve baskets of fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by the ones who had eaten. 14 Therefore when they saw what sign he did the men said, “Truly this is the prophet who is to come into the world.” 15 Jesus therefore, knowing that they were about to come and seize him that they might make him a king, departed again to the mountain by himself. 16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 17 and embarking in a boat went across the sea to Capernaum. And now darkness had come and Jesus had not yet come to them, 18 and as a great wind blew the sea was roused. 19 After rowing therefore about twenty five or thirty stadia they beheld Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they feared. 20 But he said to them, “I am; do not fear.” 21 They wished therefore to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.

22 On the morrow the crowd that stood across the sea saw that there was no other boat except one, and that Jesus did not come in the boat with his disciples but his disciples went away alone; 23 other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they ate the bread when the Lord had given thanks. 24 When the crowd therefore saw that Jesus was not there nor his disciples, they embarked in boats and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus.

And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?” 26 Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly I say to you, you do not seek me because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were satisfied. 27 Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that remains to eternal life, which the Son of man will give you; for God the Father sealed this one.” 28 They therefore said to him, “What may we do that we may work the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom that one sent.” 30 They therefore said to him, "Then what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What do you work? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert, as it has been written, ‘he gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’” 32 Therefore Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread out of heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread out of heaven; 33 for the bread of God is the one who comes down out heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They therefore said to him, “Lord, give us this bread always.” 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; the one who comes to me by no means hungers, and the one who believes in me will by no means ever thirst. 36 But I told you that you both have seen me and do not believe. 37 All which the Father gives to me I will by no means cast outside, 38 because I have not come down from heaven that I may do my will but the will of the one who has sent me, that all which he has given me I shall not loose any of it, but shall raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I will raise him up in the last day.” 41 Therefore the Jews murmured about him because he said, “I am the bread that has come down out of heaven,” 42 and they said, “Is not this man Jesus the son of Joseph, of whom we know his father and mother? How does he now say, ‘I have come down out of heaven?’” 43 Jesus answered and said to them, “Do not murmur with one another. 44 No one can come to me unless the Father who has sent me should draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught of God;’ and everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to me. 46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the one who was with God, this one has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the desert and died; 50 this is the bread that has come down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and may not die. 51 I am the living bread that has come down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live to the age; and indeed the bread is my flesh which I will give for the life of the world.” 52 Therefore the Jews fought with one another saying, “How can this man give to us his flesh to eat?” 53 Jesus therefore said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you do not have life in yourselves. 54 The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up in the last day. 55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, also the one who eats me even that one will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that has come down out of heaven, not as the fathers ate and died; the one who eats this bread will live unto the age.” 59 He said these things while teaching in a synagogue in Capernaum. 60 Therefore many of his disciples who heard him said, “This is a hard word; who can hear it?” 61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were murmuring about this, said to them, “This offends you? 62 Then what if you behold the Son of man ascending to where he was at first? 63 The spirit is that which quickens, the flesh does not profit anything; the words which I have spoken to are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who the ones were that would not believe and who the one was that would betray him. 65 And he said, “Therefore I have told you that no one can come to me unless it has been given to him by the Father.”

66 From this many of his disciples went away back home and no longer walked with him. 67 Jesus therefore said to the twelve, “Do not you also wish to go?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go away? You have words of eternal life; 69 and we have believed and have known that you are the holy one of God.” 70 Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose the twelve of you? And one of you is a devil.” 71 Now he spoke of Judas son of Simon Iscariot; for this one was about to betray him, one of the twelve.

Chapter 7

And after these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for he did not wish to walk in Judaea, because the Jews were seeking to kill him. 2 Now the Jewish feast of the Tabernacles was near. 3 Therefore his brothers said to him, “Depart from here and go into Judaea, that your disciples may also behold your works which you do; 4 for no one does anything in secret and seeks himself to be in the open. If you do these things, manifest yourself to the world.” 5 For his brothers did not believe in him. 6 Therefore Jesus said to them, “My time is not yet arrived, but your time is always ready. 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I witness about it that its works are evil. 8 You go up to the feast; I am not going up to this feast, because my time has not yet been fulfilled.” 9 And after he said these things to them he remained in Galilee. 10 But when his brothers went up to the feast, then he also went up, not manifestly but as in secret. 11 Therefore the Jews sought him at the feast and said, “Where is that man?” 12 And there was much murmuring about him in the crowds; some said, “He is a good man;” but others said, “No, but he deceives the crowd.” 13 However no one spoke openly about him because of the fear of the Jews.

14 But in the middle of the feast Jesus went up to the temple and taught. 15 Therefore the Jews marveled and said, “How does this man who has not learned know letters?” 16 Jesus therefore answered them and said, “My teaching is not mine, but that of the one who has sent me; 17 if anyone wishes to do his will, he will know concerning the teaching, whether it is of God or I speak from myself. 18 The one who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of the one who has sent him, this man is true and unrighteousness is not in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law? And not one of you does the law. Why do you seek to kill me?” 20 The crowd answered, “You have a demon; who seeks to kill you?” 21 Jesus answered and said to them, “I did one work and you all marvel. 22 Because of this Moses has given you circumcision- not that it is of Moses but of the fathers- and you circumcise a man-child on a Sabbath. 23 If a man receives circumcision on a Sabbath and the law of Moses is not broken, are you angry with me because I made a whole man healthy on a Sabbath? 24 Do not judge according to face, but judge with righteous judgment.” 25 Therefore some of the Jerusalemites said, “Is it not this man whom they are seeking to kill? 26 And behold he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Perhaps indeed the rulers knew that this is the Christ? 27 But we know where this man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from.” 28 Therefore Jesus cried out in the temple teaching and saying, “You know both me and where I am from; and I have not come from myself, but he, the one who has sent me, is true, whom you do not know; 29 I know him, because I am from him and that one sent me.” 30 They therefore sought to arrest him, and no one laid the hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 But many of the crowd believed in him, and said, “When the Christ comes, will he do more signs than this man did?” 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things about him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent attendants that they might arrest him. 33 Therefore Jesus said, “I am with you yet a little time and then I go to the one who has sent me. 34 You will seek me and will not find me, and where I am you cannot come.” 35 The Jews therefore said to themselves, “Where is this man about to go, that we will not find him? Is he about to go to the dispersion of the Greeks and to teach the Greeks? 36 What is this word which he said, ‘You will seek me and will not find, and where I am you cannot come?’”

37 Now in the last day, the great day, of the feast Jesus stood and cried out saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 The one who believes in me, as the scripture said, rivers of living water will flow out of his belly.” 39 But he said this concerning the Spirit whom the ones who believed in him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. 40 Some of the crowd who heard these words therefore said, “This man is truly the prophet.” 41 Others said, “This man is the Christ.” But others said, “Then the Christ comes out of Galilee? Has not the scripture said that the Christ comes of the seed of David, and from the Bethlehem where David was from?” 43 Therefore a division became in the crowd because of him; 44 and some of them wished to arrest him, but no one laid his hands on him. 45 The attendants therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and those said to them, “Why did you not bring him?” 46 The attendants answered, “A man never spoke so, as this man speaks.” 47 Therefore the Pharisees answered them, “Have you not also been deceived? 48 Have anyone of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49 But this crowd that does not know the law is cursed.” 50 Nicodemus, the one who came to him at first, who was one of them, said to them, 51 “Does our law judge the man unless it first hears from him and knows what he does?” 52 They answered and said to him, “Are you also a Galilean? Search and see that a prophet is not raised out of Galilee.”

53 And they went each one to his house.

Chapter 8

But Jesus went to the Mount of the Olives. 2 And at dawn he arrived again in the temple, and all the people came to him, and he sat and taught them. 3 And the scribes and the Pharisees led a woman who had been caught in adultery, and they stood her in the midst and said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of committing adultery; 5 now in the law Moses enjoined to us to stone such; what do you therefore say?” 6 But they said this tempting him, that they might have a reason to accuse him. But Jesus stooped and wrote with his finger in the earth. 7 But as they remained questioning him, he stood erect and said to them, “The sinless of you, let him cast a first stone on her.” 8 And he again stooped down and wrote in the earth. 9 And they who heard went out one by one beginning from the older ones, and he was left alone, and the woman who was in the midst. 10 And Jesus stood erect and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 And she said, “No one, sir.” So Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now no longer sin.”

12 Therefore Jesus spoke to them saying, “I am the light of the world; the one who follows me will by no means walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” 13 The Pharisees therefore said to him, “You witnessed concerning yourself; your witness is not true.” 14 Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I witness concerning myself, my witness is true, because I know from where I came and where I go; but you do not know from where I come or where I go. 15 You judge according to the flesh, I do not judge anyone. 16 But even if I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the one who has sent me. 17 And even in your law it has been written that the witness of two men is true. 18 I am the one who witnesses concerning myself, and the father who has sent me witnesses concerning me.” 19 The therefore said to him, “Where is Your Father?” Jesus answered, “You neither know me nor my Father; if you knew me, you would also have known my Father.” 20 He spoke these words in the treasury while teaching in the temple; and no one seized him, because his hour had not yet come.

21 Jesus therefore again said to them, “I go and you will seek me, and you will die in your sin; where I go you cannot come.” 22 Therefore the Jews said, “Will he kill himself, because he says, ‘Where I go you cannot come?’” 23 And he said to them, “You are of things below, I am of the things above; you are of this world, I am not of this world. 24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins, for if you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins.”25 They therefore said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Why indeed do I speak to you? I have many things to speak and to judge about you; but the one who has sent me is true, and I, what I heard from him, I speak these things in the world.” 27 They did not know that he spoke to them of the Father. 28 Therefore Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of man, then you will know that I am, and I do nothing from myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things. 29 And the one who has sent me is with me; he did not leave me alone, because I always do the things pleasing to him.”

30 As he said these things many believed in him. 31 Jesus therefore said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will free you.” 33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s seed, and we have never been enslaved to anyone; how do you say that ‘you will become free.’” 34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, I tell you truly that everyone who does sin is a slave of sin. 35 But the slave does not remain in the house unto the age, the son remains unto the age. 36 If therefore the Son frees you, you will really be free. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word finds no room in you. 38 I speak what I have seen with the Father; and you therefore, you do what you heard from your father.” 39 They answered and said to him, “Our father is Abraham.” Jesus says to them, “If you are children of Abraham, you do the works of Abraham; 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has spoken the truth to you, which I heard from God; Abraham did not do this. 41 You do the works of your father.” They said to him, “We were not born of fornication, we have one father, God.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God was your father, you would have loved me; for I came forth and have come from God; for I have not come from myself, but that one sent me. 43 Why do you not know my speech? Because you cannot hear my words. 44 You are of your father the devil and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a murderer from the beginning, and did not stand in truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks out of his own things, because he is a liar and is the father of lying. 45 But because I say the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Who of you reproves me concerning sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 The one who is of God hears the words of God; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” 48 The Jews answered and said to him, “Do we not say well that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?” 49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me. 50 But I do not seek my glory; there is the one who seeks and judges. 51 Truly, truly I tell you, if anyone keeps my word, he will by no means behold death unto the age.” 52 The Jews said to him, “Now we have known that you have a demon. Abraham and the prophets died, and you say, ‘If anyone keeps my word, he will by no means taste death unto the age.’ 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died; whom do you make yourself to be?” 54 Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; my Father is the one who glorifies me, whom you say, ‘He is our God,’ 55 and you have not known him, but I know him. Even if I say that I do not know him, I shall be a liar like you; but I know him and I keep his word. 56 Abraham your father was glad that he should see my day, and he saw and rejoiced.” 57 Therefore the Jews said to him, “You do not yet have fifty years and you have seen Abraham?” 58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I tell you, before Abraham became I am.” 59 They therefore took stones that they might cast on him; but Jesus was hidden and went forth out of the temple.

Chapter 9

And as he passed along, he saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And his disciples asked him saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God may be manifest in him. 4 We must work the works of the one who has sent me while it is day; night comes when no one can work. 5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 Having said these things he spat on the ground and made clay out of the spittle, and put the clay on his eyes, 7 and said to him, “Go wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated ‘having been sent’). He went therefore and washed, and came seeing. 8 Therefore his neighbors and those who beheld him formerly, that he was a beggar, said, “Is this man not the one who sat and begged?” 9 Some said, “This is he;” others said, “No, but he is like him.” That one said, “I am.” 10 They therefore said to him, “How then were your eyes opened?” 11 That one answered, “The man named Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and told me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash;’ therefore I went and washed and saw.” 12 And they said to him, “Where is that one?” He says, “I do not know.” 13 They lead him, who was at one time blind, to the Pharisees. 14 Now it was a Sabbath day on which Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. 15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he saw. And he said to them, “He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” 16 Some of the Pharisees therefore said, “This man is not from God, because he does not keep the Sabbath.” But others said, “How can a sinful man do such signs?” And there was a division among them. 17 They therefore say to the blind man again, “What do you say about him, because he opened your eyes?” And he said, “He is a prophet.” 18 Therefore the Jews did not believe about him that he was blind and saw, until they called the parents of the one who had seen 19 and asked them saying, “This is your son, whom you say that he was born blind? How then does he see now?” 20 Therefore his parents answered and said, “We know that this is our son and that he was born blind; 21 but we do not know how he sees now, or who opened his eyes we do not know; ask him, he has age, he will speak about himself.” 22 His parents said these things because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone should acknowledge him as Christ, he would be put away from the synagogue. 23 Therefore his parents said, “He has age, question him.” 24 They therefore called the man who was blind a second time, and said to him, “Give glory to God; we know that this man is sinful.” 25 Therefore that one answered, “I do not know if he is sinful; I know one thing, that I was blind and now I see.” 26 They therefore said to him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?” 27 He answered them, “I told you already and you did not hear; why do you wish to hear again? Do you also wish to become his disciples?” 28 And they reviled him and said, “You are a disciple of that man, but we are disciples of Moses; 29 we know that God has spoken by Moses, but we do not know from where this man is.” 30 The man answered and said to them, “Then the marvelous thing is in this, that you do not know from where he is, and he opened my eyes. 31 We know that God does not hear sinful men, but if anyone is God-fearing and does his will, he hears this man. 32 From the age it has not been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man who had been born blind; 33 if this man was not from God, he could not do anything.” 34 They answered and said to him, “You were wholly born in sin, and you teach us?” And they cast him outside. 35 Jesus heard that they cast him outside, and found him and said, “Do you believe in the Son of man?” 36 That one answered and said, “And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” 37 Jesus said to him, “Both you have seen him and the one who speaks with you is that one.” 38 And he said, “I believe, sir;” and he worshipped him. 39 And Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, that those who do not see may see and the ones who see may become blind.”

40 Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and they said to him, “Are we also blind?” 41 Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would not have had sin; but now you say, ‘We see;’ your sin remains.”

Chapter 10

“Truly, truly I say to you, the one who does not enter through the door into the fold of the sheep but goes up by another way, that one is a thief and a robber; 2 but the one who enters through the door is shepherd of the sheep. 3 The doorkeeper opens to this one, and the sheep hears his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he puts forth all his own, he goes in front of them, and his sheep follow, because they know his voice; 5 but they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of the strangers.” 6 Jesus told them this allegory, but those men did not know what things they were which he spoke to them. 7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Truly, truly I say to you that I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door; if anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and will find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except that he may steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep; 12 the hireling who is not a shepherd, of whom the sheep are not his own, beholds the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, - and the wolf seizes and scatters them;- 13 because he is a hireling and it does not matter to him about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, 15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father, and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep which are not of this fold; I must also bring those, and they will hear my voice, and there will become one flock, one shepherd. 17 Therefore the Father loves me because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down from myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it again; I received this commandment from my Father.” 19 There was a division again among the Jews because of these words. 20 And many of them said, “He has a demon and raves; why do you hear him?” 21 Others said, “These are not words of one who is demon-possessed; can a demon open the eyes of a blind man?”

22 Then there was the Dedication in Jerusalem; it was winter; 23 and Jesus walked in the temple in the porch of Solomon. 24 The Jews therefore surrounded him and said to him, “Until when will you hold our soul? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works which I do in the name of my Father, these witness concerning me; but you do not believe, 26 because you are not of my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they by no means perish unto the age, and no one shall seize them out of my hand. 28 My Father who has given them to me is greater than all, and no one can seize them out of the hand of the Father. 30 I and the Father, we are one.” 31 Again the Jews lifted stones that they might stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works of the Father; because of which work of them do you stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “We do not stone you concerning a good work but concerning blasphemy, and because you who are a man make yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, you are gods?’; 35 if he called those gods with whom the word of God was, and the scripture cannot be broken, 36 you tell him whom the father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You blaspheme, because I said, ‘I am Son of God?’ 37 If I do not do the works of my father, do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and continue to know that the Father is in me and I in the Father.” 39 They therefore sought to arrest him again; and he went forth out of their hand.

40 And he went away again across the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and remained there. 41 And many came to him and said, “Indeed John did no sign, but all the many things John said about this man were true.” 42 And many believed in him there.

Chapter 11

Now there was a certain man who ailed, Lazarus from Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 And it was Mary who was the one that anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped off his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus ailed. 3 The sisters therefore sent to him saying, “Lord, behold, he whom you love ails.” 4 And hearing this Jesus said, “This ailment is not to death but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 When he therefore heard that he ailed, he then remained two days in which place he was; 7 then after this he said to the disciples, “Let us go into Judaea again.” 8 The disciples said to him, “Rabbi, the Jews are now seeking to stone you, and you go there again?” 9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world; 10 but if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” 11 He said these things, and after this he said to them, “Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep; but I am going that I may awaken him.” 12 Therefore the disciples said to him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will be healed.” 13 Now Jesus had spoken concerning his death; but those men thought that he spoke concerning the sleep of slumber. 14 Therefore Jesus then told them plainly, “Lazarus died, 15 and I rejoice because of you, that you may believe, that I was not there, but let us go to him.” 16 Therefore Thomas who was called Twin said to his fellow disciples, “Let us go also that we may die with him.” 17 Jesus came therefore and found him already being four days in the tomb. 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem about fifteen stadia away. 19 And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother. 20 Therefore Martha, when she heard that Jesus was coming, met him; but Mary sat in the house. 21 Martha therefore said to Jesus, “Lord, if you were here, my brother would not have died. 22 And I know that whatever things you ask God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection in the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; the one who believes in me will live even if he should die, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me by no means dies unto the age; do you believe this?” 27 She says to him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that you are the Christ the Son of God, the one who must come into the world.” 28 And saying this, she went away and secretly called Mary her sister and said, “The Teacher is here and calls you.” 29 And that one, when she heard, rose quickly and came to him; 30 now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met him. 31 Therefore the Jews who were with her in the house and consoled her, seeing Mary that she quickly rose up and went out, followed her, thinking, “She is going to the tomb that she may weep there.” 32 Therefore, when she came where Jesus was, Mary saw him and fell at his feet, saying to him, “Lord, if you were here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When he saw her weeping and the Jews coming with her weeping, Jesus groaned in his spirit and troubled himself, 34 and said, “Where have you put him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus shed tears. 36 The Jews therefore said, “See how much he loved him.” 37 But some of them said, “Could not this man who opened the eyes of the blind man cause that even this man should not die?” 38 Therefore Jesus groaned in himself again and came to the tomb; now it was a cave, and a stone was lying on it. 39 Jesus said, “Lift the stone.” 39 Martha the sister of the one who had died said to him, “Lord, he smells now; for it is the fourth day.” 40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?” 41 They therefore lifted the stone. And Jesus lifted his eyes up and said, “Father, I thank you that you heard me. 42 And I knew that you always hear me; but because of the crowd standing around I said this, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 And after saying these things he cried out with a great voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44 the one who had died came out, his feet and hands bound with bandages, and his face had been bound round with a napkin. Jesus said to them, “Loosen him and let him go.”

45 Therefore many of the Jews, the ones who had come to Mary and had beheld what he did, believed in him; 46 but some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them what things Jesus did. 47 Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees assembled a council, and said, “What are we doing, because this man does many signs? 48 If we leave him thus, all men will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take both our place and our nation.” 49 But a certain of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You do not know anything, 50 nor reckon that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people so that all the nation does not perish.” 51 But he did not say this from himself, but being high priest of that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation, 52 but that he might also gather into one all the children of God that had been scattered. 53 From that day they therefore took counsel that they might kill him. 54 Therefore Jesus no longer openly walked among the Jews, but went away from there into the country near the desert, to a city that is called Ephraim, and remained there with the disciples.

55 Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover, that they might purify themselves. 56 They therefore sought Jesus and said with one another as they stood in the temple, “What does it seem to you, that he will by no means come to the feast?” 57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commands that if anyone knew where he was he should inform them, so that they might arrest him.

Chapter 12

Therefore Jesus came to Bethany six days before the Passover, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised out of the dead. 2 They therefore made a supper for him there, and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of the ones who reclined with him; 3 therefore Mary took a pound of costly pure spikenard ointment and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped off his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. 4 And one of his disciples Judas the Iscariot, the one who was about to betray him, said, 5” Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 But he said this not because it mattered to him about the poor, but because he was a thief and had the bag and carried the things that had been put in it. 7 Jesus said therefore, “Leave her, that she may keep the day of my burial; 8 for the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” 9 The great crowd of the Jews therefore knew that he was there, and they did not come because of Jesus only, but also that they might see Lazarus whom he raised out of the dead. 10 But the chief priests took counsel that they might kill Lazarus also, 11 because many of the Jews went because of him and believed in Jesus.

12 On the next day the large crowd that had come to the feast, hearing that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 took the branches of the palm-trees and went out to a meeting with him, and cried out, “Hosanna, blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord, even the king of Israel.” 14 And having found a young ass, Jesus sat on it, as it had been written, 15 “Fear not, daughter of Sion: Behold, your king comes, sitting on a foal of an ass.” 16 His disciples did not know these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him and they did these things to him. 17 The crowd therefore witnessed they had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him out of the dead. 18 Therefore the crowd also met him, because they heard that he had done this sign. 19 Therefore the Pharisees said to themselves, “Behold that we do not profit anything; see, the world is gone after him.”

20 Now there were some Greeks among the ones who were going up that they might worship at the feast; 21 these therefore approached Philip the one from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22 Phillip came and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip came and told Jesus. 23 And Jesus answered them saying, “The hour has come that the Son of man is glorified.” 24 “Truly, truly I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25 The one who loves his life loses it, and the one who hates his life in this world will keep it unto eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, let him follow me, and where I am, there my servant will also be; if anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” 27 “Now my soul has been troubled, and what may I say? Father, save me out of this hour. But I therefore came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name.” Therefore a voice came out of heaven, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” 29 Therefore the crowd that stood and heard said that thunder had happened; others said, “An angel has spoken to him.” 30 Jesus answered and said, “This voice has happened not because of me, but because of you. 31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast outside; 32 and if I am lifted up out of the earth, I will draw all men to myself.” 33 And he said this signifying by what kind of death he was about to die. 34 The crowd therefore answered him, “We heard out of the law that the Christ remains unto the age, and how do you say that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man?” 35 Jesus therefore said to them, “Yes, the light is among you a little while. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtakes you; and the one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. 36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”

Jesus spoke these things, and went away and was hidden from them. 37 But while he did so many signs before them, they did not believe in him, 38 that the word of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled which he said, “Lord, who believed our report?” and “The arm of the Lord, to whom was it revealed?” 39 Therefore they could not believe, because again Esaias said, 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, that they might not see with their eyes and understand with their hearts and might turn, and I will cure them.” 41 Esaias said these things because he saw his glory, and spoke about him. 42 Nevertheless however even many of the rulers believed in him, but did not confess because of the Pharisees, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God. 44 But Jesus cried out and said, “The one who believes in me does not believe only in me but in the one who has sent me, 45 and the one who beholds me beholds the one who has sent me. 46 I have come into the world a light, that everyone who believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47 And if anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. 48 The one who rejects me has that which judges him; the word which I spoke, that will judge him in the last day. 49 Because I do not speak from myself, but the Father who has sent me, he has given what I may say and what I may speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. Therefore what things I speak, as the Father has said to me, so I speak.”

Chapter 13

Now before the feast of the Passover Jesus knew that his hour had come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 And during supper, as the devil had now put into the heart of Judas of Simon Iscariot that he should betray him, 3 knowing that the Father gave all things into his hands, and that he came forth from God and was going to God, 4 he rose from the supper and placed aside his garments, and taking a towel he girded himself; 5 then he put water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them off with the towel with which he was girded. 6 He came therefore to Peter; he said to him, “Lord, you wash my feet?” 7 Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not know yet, but you will know after these things.” 8 Peter said to him, “You shall by no means wash my feet unto the age.” Jesus answered him, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” 9 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.” 10 The one who has been bathed has no need except to wash his feet, but is wholly clean; and you are clean, but not all.” 11 For he knew the one who would betray him; therefore he said, “You are not all clean.” 12 When he therefore washed their feet and took his garments and reclined again, he said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call me, ‘my Teacher’ and ‘my Lord,’ and you speak well, for I am. 14 If I your Lord and your Teacher therefore washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another; 15 I gave you for an example that as I did to you, you may also do. 16 Truly, truly I tell you, a slave is not greater than the one who sends him. 17 If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. 18 I do not speak concerning all of you; I know whom I chose; but that the scripture may be fulfilled, ‘The one who eats my bread lifted up his heel against me.’ 19 From now I tell you before it happens, that you may believe that I am when it happens. 20 Truly, truly I say to you, the one who receives whomever I may send receives me, and the one who receives me receives the one who has sent me.’ 21 After saying these things Jesus was troubled in his spirit and witnessed and said, “Truly, truly I tell you that one of you will betray me.’ 22 The disciples looked at one another, being perplexed about whom he spoke. 23 One of his disciples was reclining in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus loved; 24 Simon Peter therefore nodded to this one and said to him, “Ask who it is about whom he speaks.” 25 That one thus fell back on the breast of Jesus and said to him, “Lord, who is it?” 26 Therefore Jesus answered, “It is that one to whom I shall dip the morsel and shall give to him.” Dipping the morsel he took and gave it to Judas of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the morsel Satan then entered into that one. Therefore Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.” 28 But no one of those who reclined knew for what he told him this; 29 for some thought, since Judas had the bag, that Jesus told him, “Buy the things of which we have need for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor. 30 Having therefore taken the morsel that one went out immediately; and it was night.

31 When he therefore went out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of man is glorified, and God is glorified in him; 32 if God is glorified in him, God will both glorify him in himself, and will glorify him immediately. 33 Children, I am with you yet a little time; you will seek me, and as I said to the Jews that ‘where I go you cannot come,’ I also say to you now. 34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another, as I loved you that you also love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are disciples to me, if you have love among one another.” 36 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where do you go?” Jesus answered, “Where I go you cannot follow now, but you will follow later. 37 Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you yet? I will lay down my life for you.” 38 Jesus answered, “You will lay down your life for me? Truly, truly I tell you, a cock will by no means crow until you deny me three times.

Chapter 14

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, also believe in me. 2 In my Father’s house there are many abodes; otherwise, I would have told you; because I go to prepare a place for you; 3 and if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and will receive you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And where I go you know the way. 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going; how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have also known my Father. From now you know and have seen him.” 8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “I am with you so long a time and you have not known me, Philip? The one who has seen me has seen the Father; how do you say, ‘Show us the Father.’ 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words which I say to you I do not speak from myself; but the Father who remains in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; otherwise, believe because of the works themselves. 12 Truly, truly I tell you, the one who believes in me, that one will do the works which I do, and he will do greater than these, because I am going to the Father; 13 and whatever you ask in my name, I will do this, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it. 15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will request the Father and he will give you another Comforter, that he may be with you unto the age, 17 the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds nor knows it, because he remains with you and you will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans, I am coming to you. 19 Yet a little while and the world will no longer behold me, but you will behold me, because I live you will also live. 20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you. 21 The one who has my commandments and keeps them, that is the one who loves me; and the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will manifest myself to him.” 22 Judas says to him, not the Iscariot, “Lord, what has happened that you are about to manifest yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and will make abode with him. 24 The one who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but that of the Father who has sent me. 25 I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you; 26 but the Comforter, the Holy Spirit which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and remind you of all things which I told you. 27 Peace I leave to you, my peace I give you; I give you not as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled nor let it be fearful. 28 You heard that I told you, ‘I go and come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced that I am going to the father, because the father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it happens, that when it happens you may believe. 30 I will no longer speak many things with you, for the ruler of this world is coming; and he has nothing in me, 31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father commanded me, so I do. Rise, let us go there.

Chapter 15

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, he takes it, and every branch that bears the fruit, he prunes it that it may bear more fruit. 3 Now you are clean because of the word which I have spoken to you; remain in me, and I in you. 4 As the branch cannot bear fruit from itself unless it remains in the vine, so you can not unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from me you cannot do anything. 6 Unless anyone remains in me, he is cast outside as the branch and is dried, and they gather them and they cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall happen to you. 8 By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and you will be my disciples. 9 As the father loved me, I also loved you; remain in my love. 10 if you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, as I have kept the commandments of my Father and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you and your joy may be filled. 12 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I loved you. 13 No one has greater love than this, that anyone should lay down his life for his friends. 14 you are my friends, if you do what I command you. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because the slave does not know what his lord does; but I have called you friends, because all things which I heard from my Father I made known to you. 16 You did not chose me, but I chose you, and appointed you that you should go and should bear fruit and your fruit should remain, that whatever you may ask the Father in my name he may give you. 17 These things I command you, that you love one another. 18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would have loved its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word which I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his lord.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21 But they will do all these things to you because of my name, because they do not know the one who has sent me. 22 Unless I came and spoke to them, they had not had sin; but now they have no cloak concerning their sin. 23 The one who hates me also hates my Father. 24 If I did not do among them the works which no other man did, they had not had sin; but now they both have seen and have hated both me and my Father. 25 But that is so the word may be fulfilled that has been written in their law, ‘They hated me freely.’ 26 When the Comforter whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth which proceeds from the Father, that one will witness concerning me; 27 and you also will witness because you have been with me from the beginning.

Chapter 16

I have spoken these things to you that you not be offended. 2 They will cause you to be put away from the synagogue; but there will come an hour when everyone who kills you will think they offer service to God. 3 And they will do these things because they do not know the Father nor me. 4 But I have spoken these things to you that when their hour comes you may remember them, that I told you. And I did not tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you. 5 But now I am going to the one who has sent me, and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ 6 But because I have spoken these things to you, grief has filled your heart. 7 But I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I should go away. For if I do not go away, the Comforter will by no means come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And that one will come and reprove the world concerning sin and concerning righteousness and concerning judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer behold me; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged. 12 Yet I have many things to tell you, but you cannot bear them now; 13 but when that one comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak from himself, but he will speak what things he hears, and he will announce the coming things to you. 14 That one will glorify me, because he will receive of me and will announce it to you. 15 All things which the Father has are mine; therefore I said that he receives of what is mine and will announce it to you. 16 A little while and you will no longer behold me, and again a little while and you will see me.” 17 Therefore some of his disciples said to one another, “What is this which he tells us: ‘A little while and you will not behold me,’ and again, ‘A little while and you will see me?’ and, ‘Because I am going to the Father?’” 18 They said therefore, “What is this which he says, the ‘little while’? We do not know what he speaks.” 19 Jesus knew that they wished to question him, and said to them, “Do you seek with one another concerning this because I said, ‘A little while and you do not behold me,’ and again, ‘A little while and you will see me?’ 20 Truly, truly I tell you that you will weep and will lament, and the world will rejoice; you will be grieved, but your grief will be changed into joy. 21 The woman, when she gives birth has grief, because her hour came; but when she brings forth the child, she no longer remembers the distress because of the joy that a man was born into the world. 22 And therefore you now indeed have grief; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one takes your joy from you. 23 And in that day you will not question me anything. Truly, truly I tell you, whatever you ask the father he will give you in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked anything in my name; ask, and you will receive that your joy may be filled. 25 I have spoken these things in allegories to you; an hour comes when I will speak to you in allegories no longer, but will plainly declare to you concerning the Father. 26 In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not tell you that I will request the Father concerning you; 27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came forth from God. 28 I came forth out of the Father and have come into the world; again, I leave the world and go to the Father.” 29 His disciples say, “Behold, you now speak in plainness, and you tell no allegory. 30 Now we know that you know all things and have no need that anyone should question you; by this we believe that you came forth from God.” 31 Jesus answered them, “Now you believe? Behold, an hour comes and has come that you are scattered each one to his own place and you leave me alone; and I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 I have spoken these things to you that you may have peace in me. You have distress in the world; but cheer up, I have overcome the world.”

Chapter 17

Jesus spoke these things, then lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son, that the Son glorify you, 2 as you gave him authority over all flesh, that all which you have given him he may give life eternal to them. 3 And this is eternal life, that they may know you the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you sent. 4 I glorified you on the earth, finishing the work which you have given me that I should do; 5 and now glorify me, Father, in your presence with the glory which I had with you before the world was. 6 I manifested your name to the men whom you gave to me out of the world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given to me are from you; 8 because the words which you gave to me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew that I truly came forth from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I make request concerning them; I do not make request concerning the world, but concerning those whom you have given to me, because they are yours, 10 and all my things are yours, and I have been glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, and they are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name which you have given to me, that they may be one as we are one. 12 When I was with them, I kept them in your name which you have given to me, and I guarded them, and not one of them perished except the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to you, and I speak these things in the world that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given your word to them, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world as I am not of the world. 15 I do not request that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them out of the evil.16 They are not of the world as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I also sent them into the world; 19 and on their behalf I sanctify myself, that they may also be sanctified in truth. 20 But I make request not only concerning these, but also concerning the ones who believe in me through their word, 21 that all may be one, as you, Father, are in me and I am in you, that they may also be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. 22 and I have given to them the glory which you have given to me, that they may be one as we are one; 23 I in them and you in me, that they may be perfected in one, that the world may know that you sent me and loved them as you loved me. 23 Father, what you have given to me, I wish that those may also be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which you have given to me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 Righteous Father, indeed the world did not know you, but I knew you, and these knew that you sent me; 26 and I made your name known to them and will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them.”

Chapter 18

After saying these things Jesus went forth with his disciples across the Kedron torrent, where there was a garden, into which he and his disciples entered. 2 Now Judas the one who betrayed him also knew the place, because Jesus often assembled there with his disciples. 3 Therefore Judas took the band and the attendants from the chief priests and from the Pharisees and came there with lanterns and lamps and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all the things coming on him, went forth and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” 5 They answered him, “Jesus the Nazarene.” He teold them, “I am.” Now Judas the one who betrayed him also stood with them. 6 When he therefore told them, “I am,” they went backward and fell on the ground. 7 Therefore he questioned them again, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus the Nazarene.” 8 Jesus answered, “I told you that I am; therefore if you seek me, allow these to go;” 9 that the word which he said might be fulfilled, “Those whom you have given to me, I did not lose any one of them.” 10 Therefore Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and smote the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear; and the name of the slave was Malchus. 11 Therefore Jesus said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given to me, shall I by no means drink it?”

12 Therefore the band and the chiliarch and the attendants of the Jews took Jesus and bound him, 13 and led him first to Annas; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest of that year; 14 now it was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people. 15 And Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. And that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered with Jesus into the court of the high priest, 16 but Peter stood at the door outside. Therefore the other disciple known to the high priest went out and told the portress, and brought Peter in. 17 Therefore the portress maidservant said to Peter, “Are you not also of the disciples of this man?” That one said, “I am not.” 18 And the slaves and the attendants stood by a fire that had been made, because it was cold, and were warming themselves; and Peter was also with them standing and warming himself. 19 The high priest therefore questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. 20 Jesus answered him, “I have spoken with plainness to the world; I always taught in a synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jews come together, and I spoke nothing in secret. 21 Why do you question me? Question the ones who have heard what I spoke to them, behold, these know what things I said.” 22 And as he said this one of the attendants who stood by gave a blow to Jesus and said, “Do you answer the high priest this way?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If I spoke ill, witness concerning the evil; but if well, why did you beat me?” 24 Therefore Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest. 25 Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said therefore to him, “Are you not also of his disciples?” That one denied and said, “I am not.” 26 One of the slaves of the high priest, who was a relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, “Didn’t I see you in the garden with him?” 27 Therefore Peter denied again, and immediately a cock sounded.

28 They therefore led Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium; and it was early; and they did not enter into the praetorium, lest they would be defiled, but wanted to eat the Passover. 29 Therefore Pilate went forth outside to them and said, “What accusation do you bring of this man?” 30 They answered and said to him, “Unless this man was doing evil, we would not have delivered him to you.” 31 Therefore Pilate said to them, “Take him and judge him according to your law.” The Jews said to him, “It is not lawful to kill anyone;” 32 that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled which he said signifying by what death he was about to die. 33 Therefore Pilate entered again into the praetorium and called Jesus and said to him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Do you say this from yourself, or have others told you about me?” 35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your nation and the chief priests delivered you to me; what did you do?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom was of this world, my attendants would have struggled, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now my kingdom is not from here.” 37 Therefore Pilate said to him, “Aren’t you really a king?” Jesus answered, “You say I am a king. I have been born for this and for this I have come into the world, that I might witness to the truth; everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.” 38 Pilate says to him, “What is truth?” And after saying this he went forth again to the Jews, and tells them, “I find no crime in him. 39 But there is a custom you have that I should release one to you at the Passover; do you will therefore that I release to you the king of the Jews?” 40 Therefore they cried out again saying, “Not this man, but Barabbas.” But Barabbas was a robber.

Chapter 19

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged him. 2 And the soldiers had plaited a wreath out of thorns and put it on his head, and threw a purple garment around him, 3 and came to him and said, “Hail, king of the Jews;” and they gave him blows. 4 And Pilate again went forth outside and said to them, “Behold I bring him out to you, that you may know that I find no crime in him.” 5 Therefore Jesus came forth outside, wearing the thorny wreath and the purple garment. And he said to them, “Behold, the man.” 6 When the chief priests and the attendants therefore saw him, they shouted saying, “Crucify, crucify.” Pilate said to them, “You take and crucify him, for I do not find crime in him.” 7 The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself Son of God.” 8 When Pilate therefore heard this word, he was more afraid, 9 and entered into the praetorium again, and said to Jesus, “Where are you from?” But Jesus did not give him an answer. 10 Therefore Pilate said to him, “You do not speak to me? Do you not know that I have authority to release you and I have authority to crucify you?” 11 Jesus answered, “You have had no authority against me unless it was given to you from above; therefore the one who has delivered me to you has a greater sin.” 12 From this time Pilate sought to release him, but the Jews shouted saying, “If you release this man, you are not a friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.” 13 Therefore when Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus outside, and sat on a tribunal in a place that is called Pavement, but Gabbatha in Hebrew. 14 Now it was the preparation of the Passover, it was about the sixth hour; and he said to the Jews, “Behold, your king.” 15 Therefore those shouted, “Take, take, crucify him.” Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your king?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king except Caesar.” 16 Therefore he then delivered him to them that he should be crucified.

They therefore took Jesus; 17 and he carried the cross himself and went forth to the place that is called of a skull, which is called Golgotha in Hebrew, 18 where they crucified him, and with him two others on this side and on that, and Jesus in the middle. 19 And Pilate also wrote a title and put it on the cross; and it was written: JESUS THE NAZARENE THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20 Many of the Jews therefore read this title, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, in Greek. 21 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The king of the Jews,’ but that that man said, ‘I am King of the Jews.’” 22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.” 23 Therefore the soldiers, when they crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and the tunic. Now the tunic was seamless, woven from the top throughout. 24 They therefore said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but let us cast lots about it whose it shall be;” that the scripture might be fulfilled, “They parted my garments to themselves and they cast a lot over my raiment.” Therefore the soldiers did these things. 25 But there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and the sister of his mother, Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary the Magdalene. 26 Therefore when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing by her, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son.” 27 Then he says to the disciple, “Behold your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. 28 After this Jesus, knowing that all things had now been finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst.” 29 A vessel full of vinegar was set; therefore they brought a sponge full of vinegar put around a hyssop to his mouth. 30 When Jesus therefore took the vinegar he said, “It has been finished,” and he inclined his head and delivered up his spirit.

31 The Jews therefore, since it was preparation, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, for the day of that Sabbath was great, they asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and they might be taken. 32 Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first and of the other crucified with him; 33 but coming on Jesus, when they saw he had already died, they did not break his legs, 34 but one of the soldiers pricked his side with a lance, and immediately there came out blood and water. 35 And the one who saw has witnessed, and his witness is true, and that one knows that he speaks truly, that you may also believe. 36 For these things happened that the scripture might be fulfilled, “A bone of his shall not be broken.” 37 And again another scripture says, “They shall look at him whom they pierced.” 38 Now after these things Joseph from Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus but had hidden because of the fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus; and Pilate allowed him. He came therefore and took his body. 39 And Nicodemus also came, the one who had come to him at first by night, bearing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Therefore they took the body of Jesus and bound it in sheets with the spices, as is the custom of the Jews to bury someone. 41 Now there was a garden in the place where he was crucified, and a new tomb in the garden, in which never had anyone been put; therefore because of the preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was near, they put Jesus there.

Chapter 20

Now on the first day of the week Mary the Magdalene came early while it was dark to the tomb, and saw the stone had been taken out of the tomb. 2 Therefore she ran and cameto Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They took the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they put him.” 3 Therefore Peter and the other disciple went forth, and came to the tomb. 4 And the two ran together; and the other disciple ran before more quickly than Peter and came first to the tomb, 5 and stooped and saw the sheets lying, however he did not enter. 6 Simon Peter therefore came following him, and entered into the tomb; and he beheld the sheets lying, 7 and the kerchief, which was on his head, not lying with the sheets but having been wrapped up apart in one place. 8 Then therefore the other disciple who had come first to the tomb entered also, and saw and believed; 9 for they did not yet know the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 10 Therefore the disciples went away again to their home. 11 But Mary stood outside at the tomb weeping. As she was therefore weeping, she stooped into the tomb, 12 and beheld two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus lay. 13 And those said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?” She said to them, “They took my Lord, and I do not know where they put him.” 14 After saying these things she turned back, and beheld Jesus standing, and did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?” That one, thinking that it was the gardener, said to him, “Sir, if you carried him, tell me where you put him, and I will take him.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” That one turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabboni” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and tell them; I ascend to my Father and your Father and my God and your God.” 18 Mary the Magdalene came and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that he said these things to her.

19 Therefore when it was early evening on that first day of the week, and the doors where the disciples were had been shut because of fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and said to them, “Peace to you.” 20 And after saying this he showed to them both his hands and his side. Therefore the disciples rejoiced at seeing the Lord. 21 Jesus therefore said to them again, “Peace to you; as the Father has sent me, I also send you.” 22 And saying this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 Of whomever you forgive their sins, they have been forgiven to them; of whomever you hold, they have been held.”

24 But Thomas one of the twelve, who was called Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 Therefore the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the place of the nails and put my hand into his side, I will by no means believe.” 26 And after eight days his disciples were again within, and Thomas with them. Jesus came though the doors had been shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace to you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Bring your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be faithless but faithful.” 28 Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God.” 29 Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed? Blessed are the ones who have not seen and believe.”

30 Many other signs Jesus therefore did before the disciples, which are not written in this roll; 31 but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.

Chapter 21

After these things Jesus manifested himself again to the disciples on the sea of Tiberias; and he manifested himself like this. 2 There were together Simon Peter and Thomas who was called Twin and Nathanael from Cana of Galilee and the sons of Zebedee and two others of his disciples. 3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going to fish.” They said to him, “We are also coming with you.” They went forth and embarked in the boat, and they caught nothing in that night. 4 But when it became early morning Jesus stood on the shore; however the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 5 Therefore Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any fish?” They answered him, “No.” 6 So he said to them, “Cast the net in the right parts of the boat, and you will find.” They cast therefore, and they were no longer able to drag it from the multitude of the fishes. 7 That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” Therefore Simon Peter, hearing that it was the Lord, girded himself with his coat, for he was naked, and threw himself into the sea; 8 but the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land but they dragged the net of the fishes from about two hundred cubits. 9 When they therefore disembarked onto the land, they saw a coal fire lying and a fish lying on it and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring from the fishes which you now caught.” 11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to the land full of a hundred fifty three great fishes; but even being so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come breakfast.” No one of the disciples dared to question him, “Who are you?”, knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave to them, and the fish likewise. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples raised from the dead.

15 When they therefore breakfasted, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Shepherd my little sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and said to him, “Lord, you know all things, you know that I love you;” Jesus said to him, “Feed my little sheep. Truly, truly I tell you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and will carry you where you do not wish.” 19 And he said this signifying by what death he would glorify God. And after saying this he told him, “Follow me.” 20 Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also leaned at the supper on his breast and said, “Lord, who is the one who will betray you?” 21 Seeing this one Peter therefore said to Jesus, “Lord, and what of this one?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If I wish him to remain until I come, what is it to you? You follow me.” 23 Therefore this word went forth to the brothers that that disciple would not die; but Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, “If I wish him to remain until I come, what is it to you?”

24 This is the disciple who witnesses concerning these things and who has written these things, and we know that his witness is true. 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written singly, I think the world itself could not contain the rolls that would be written.
