We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;

we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;

cast down, but not destroyed;

(2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

The Pathway to Eden is to pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ

CHAPTER 1 13. Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
2. He was in the beginning with God. 15. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.' "
3. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 16. And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.
4. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 17. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
5. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 18. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 19. Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask Him, "Who are you?"
7. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 20. He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Christ."

8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

21. And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" And he answered , "No."

9. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

22. Then they said to him, "Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?"
10. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 23. He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the Lord," ' as the prophet Isaiah said."
11. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 24. Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees.
12. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 25. And they asked him, saying, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"

26. John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 39. He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).
27. "It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose." 40. One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
28. These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 41. He first found His own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ).
29. The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 42. And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is translated, A Stone).
30. "This is He of whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.' 43. The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, "Follow Me."
31. "I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water." 44. Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
32. And John bore witness, saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 45. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote - Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
33. "I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom you see the spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' 46. And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
34. "And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God." 47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!"
35. Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 48. Nathanael said to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
36. And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" 49. Nathanael answered and said to Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
37. The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 50. Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these."
38. Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say when translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?" 51. And He said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."

CHAPTER 2 13. Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
1. On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 14. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business.
2. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. 15. When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables.
3. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." 16. And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Fathers house a house of merchandise!"
4. Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come." 17. Then His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up."
5. His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it." 18. So the Jews answered and said to Him, "What sign do You show us, since You do these things?"
6. Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. 19. Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
7. Jesus said to them, "Fill the waterpots with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 20. Then the Jew said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and You will raise it up in three days?"
8. And He said to them, "Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast." And they took it. 21. But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
9. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made 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. 22. Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.
10. And he said to him, "Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!" 23. Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the signs which He did.
11. This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him. 24. But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men,
12. After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brother, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days. 25. And had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.

CHAPTER 3 13. "No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
1. There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 14. "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
2. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with Him." 15. "That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
3. Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." 16. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
4. Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old?" Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" 17. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
5. Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of the water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 18. "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
6. "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 19. "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
7. "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You most be born again.' 20. "For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
8. "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from or where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." 21. "But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."
9. Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?" 22. After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized. 
10. Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 23. Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.
11. "Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 24. For John had not yet been thrown into prison.
12. "If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 25. Then there arose a dispute between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purification.

Page 4


26. And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified - behold, He is baptizing, and all are coming to Him!" CHAPTER 4
27. John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 1. Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John
28. "You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, 'I have been sent before Him.' 2. (Though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples),
29. "He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 3. He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.
30. "He must increase, but I must decrease. 4. But He needed to go through Samaria.
31. "He who comes from above is above all; he who comes from the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 5. So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

32. "And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony.

6. Now Jacobs well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
33. "He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 7. A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."
34. "For He who God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. 8. For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
35. "The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. 9. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
36. "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." 10. Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
11. The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
12. "Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"

Page 5


13. Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again, 26. Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."
14. "But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life." 27. And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are You talking with her?"
15. The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw." 28. The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
16. Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here." 29. "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"
17. The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'  30. Then they went out of the city and came to Him.
18. "For you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly." 31. In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat."
19. The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 32. But He said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know."
20. "Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship." 33. Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?"
21. Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.

34. Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish is work.

22. "You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 35. "Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
23. "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 36. "And He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
24. "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." 37. "For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'
25. The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." 38. "I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."

Page 6


39. And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did." 52. Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
40. So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 53. So the father knew that it was the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his whole household.
41. And many more believed because of His own word. 54. This again is the second sign Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
42. Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this indeed is the Christ, the Savior of the world."
43. Now after the two days He departed from there and went to Galilee. CHAPTER 5
44. For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor is his own country. 1. After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
45. So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone to the feast. 2. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.
46. So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum. 3. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.
47. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. 4.For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stairred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had. 
48. Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe." 5. Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.
49. The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!" 6. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be made well?"
50. Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your son lives." So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. 7. The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me."
51. And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, "Your son lives!" 8. Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your bed and walk."

Page 7


9. And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath. 22. "For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son,
10. The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, "It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed." 23. "That all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
11. He answered them, "He who made me well said to me, 'Take up your bed and walk.' " 24. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
12. Then they asked him, "Who is the Man who said to you, 'Take up your bed and walk'?" 25. "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the deaf will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
13. But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place. 26. "For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,
14. Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you." 27. "And has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.
15. The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well. 28. "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice
16. For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath. 29. "And come forth - those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
17. But Jesus answered them, "My Father has been working until now, and I have been working." 30. "I can of my self do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
18. Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. 31. "If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true.
19. Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 32. "There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true.
20. "For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 33. "You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth.
21. "For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will. 34. "Yet I do not receive testimony from man, but I say these things that you may be saved.

Page 8


35. "He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. CHAPTER 6
36. "But I have a greater witness than John's; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish - the very works that I do - bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me.  1. After these things Jesus went over the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias.
37. "And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. 2. Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw the signs which He performed on those who were diseased.
38. "But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 3. And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.
39. "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 4. Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near.
40. "But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. 5. Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?"
41. "I do not receive honor from men. 6. But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.
42. "But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. 7. Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little."
43. "I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 8. One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him, 
44. "How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? 9. "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?"
45. "Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you - Moses, in whom you trust. 10. Then Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
46. "For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 11. And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.
47. "But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?" 12. So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost."

Page 9


13. Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. 26. Jesus answered them and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.
14. Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world." 27. "Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him."
15. Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone. 28. Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?"
16. Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 29. Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
17. Got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. 30. Therefore they said to Him, "What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do?
18. Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. 31. "Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.' "

19. So when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid.

32. Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.

20. But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."

33. "For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."
21. Then they willing received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going. 34. Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this bread always."
22. On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone -  35. And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
23. However, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks -  36. "But I have said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.
24. When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. 37. "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
25. And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You come here?" 38. "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

Page 10


39. "This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should loss nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 52. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
40. "And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day." 53. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
41. The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven." 54. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
42. And they said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, 'I have come down from heaven'?" 55. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
43. Jesus therefore answered and said to them, "Do not murmur among yourselves. 56. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
44. "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 57. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
45. "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 58. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
46. "Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 59. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. 
47. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. 60. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
48. I am that bread of life. 61. When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
49. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 62. What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
50. I am the living bread which came down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 63. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are sprirt, and they are life.
51. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shal live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 64. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

Page 11


65. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 5. For neither did his brethren believe in him.
66. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 6. Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
67. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

7. The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

68. Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 8. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
69. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. 9. When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
70. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of  you is a devil? 10. But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
71. He spake of judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve. 11. Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
12. And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
CHAPTER 7 13. Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
1. After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews soth to kill him. 14. Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
2. Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand. 15. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
3. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest. 16. Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
4. For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. 17. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak for myself.

Page 12


18. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 31. And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
19. Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? 32. The Pharisees heard  that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
20. The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee? 33. Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
21. Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 34. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
22. Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 35. Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
23. If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? 36. What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
24. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
25. Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? 38. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
26. But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? 39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
27. Howbeit that we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is. 40. Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

28. Then cried Christ Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

41. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
29. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me. 42. Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
30. Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. 43. So there was a division among the people because of him.

Page 13


44. And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him. 2. And early again in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
45. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him? 3. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 
46. The officers answered, Never man spake like this man. 4. They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
47. Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived? 5. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
48. Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? 6. This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
49. But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. 7. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
50. Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 8. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
51. Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? 9. And they which heard it, being convicted of their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
52. They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. 10. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
53. And every man went unto his own house. 11. She said, No man, Lord.And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
CHAPTER 8 13. The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
1. Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 14. Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

Page 14


15. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 28. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
16. And yet if I judge, my judgement is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. 29. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not let me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
17. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 30. As he spake those words, many believed on him.
18. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. 31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then ar ye my disciples indeed;
19. Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. 32. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
20. These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come. 33. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
21. Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. 34. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
22. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. 35. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
23. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

36. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

24. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. 37. I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
25. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. 38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
26. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. 39. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
27. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. 40. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

Page 15


41. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 54. Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 55. Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 56. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 57. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
45. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 58. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
46. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 59. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
47. He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not from God.
48. Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? CHAPTER 9
49. Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. 1. And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
50. And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 2. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
51. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. 3. Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
52. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 4. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? 5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Page 16


6. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 19. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
7. And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. 20. His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
8. The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 21. But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who had opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
9. Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. 22. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
10. Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? 23. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
11. He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

24. Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

12. Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not. 25. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
13. They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 26. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
14. And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 27. He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

15. Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

28. Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciples; but we are Moses' disciples.
16. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man who is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 29. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
17. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath open thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet. 30. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
18. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they had called the parents of him that received his sight. 31. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

Page 17


32. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 2. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
33. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 3. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
34. They answered and said unto him, Thou was all together born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. 4. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

35. Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

5. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
36. He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 6. This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
37. And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 7. Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
38. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. 8. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
39. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 9. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
40. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 10. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
41. Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth. 11. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
CHAPTER 10 13. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
1. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 14. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

Page 18


15. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 28. And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
16. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 29. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand.
17. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 30. I and my Father are one.
18. No man taketh if from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. 31. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
19. There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. 32. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
20. And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? 33. The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
21. Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? 34. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
22. And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
23. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. 36. Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
24. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 37. If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
25. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. 38. But if I do, though you believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
26. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 39. Therefore they sort again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, 
27. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 40. And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

Page 19


41. And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. 10. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.
42. And many believed on him there. 11. These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. 
CHAPTER 11 13. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
1. Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 14. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
2. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) 15. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
3. Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 16. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
4. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. 17. Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
5. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 18. Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
6. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 19. And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
7. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 20. Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
8. His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? 21. Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
9. Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 22. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

Page 20


23. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 36. Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
24. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 37. And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
25. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 38. Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
26. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 39. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
27. She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 40. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
28. And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee. 41. Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
29. As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 42. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
30. Now Jesus was not yet come into the  town, but was in that place where Martha met him. 43. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
31. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there. 44. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
32. Then when Mary was come were Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 45. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
33. When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 46. But some of them went their way to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.
34. And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 47. Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
35. Jesus wept. 48. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

Page 21


49. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, 3. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was feeled with the odour of the ointment.
50. Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. 4. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
51. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; 5. Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
52. And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. 6. This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
53. Then from that day forth they took councel together for to put him to death. 7. Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
54. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples. 8. For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
55. And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves. 9. Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
56. Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? 10. But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
57. Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him. 11. Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
12. On the next day much people that were to come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
CHAPTER 12 13. Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
 1. Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 14. And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
2. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 15. Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

Page 22


16. These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. 29. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
17. The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. 30. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
18. For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. 31. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
19. The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. 32. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
20. And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: 33. This he said, signifying what death he should die.
21. The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. 34. The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
22. Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. 35. Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
23. And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 36. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
24. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 37. But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
25. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 38. That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
26. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. 39. Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
27. Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 40. He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
28. Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 41. These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

Page 23


42. Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: 3. Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
43. For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. 4. He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
44. Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 5. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
45. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 6. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
46. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 7. Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shall know hereafter.
47. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 8. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

48. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

9. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
49. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

10. Jesus saith unto him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash is feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

50. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. 11. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
12. So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
CHAPTER 13 13. Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
1. Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. 14. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
2. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; 15. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Page 24


16. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 29. For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
17. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. 30. He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
18. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. 31. Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
19. Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. 32. If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
20. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 33. Little children, yet a little while and I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
21. When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 34. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
22. Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. 35. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
23. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. 36. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
24. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he sapke. 37. Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
25. He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? 38. Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
26. Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. CHAPTER 14
28. Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. 1. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

Page 25


2. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 15. If ye love me, keep my commandments. 
3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
4. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
5. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 18. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 19. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
7. If ye had know me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 20. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
8. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 21. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
9. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 22. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
10. Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 23. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
11. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 24. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 25. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
13. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
14. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 27. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Page 26


28. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 8. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
29. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 9. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 10. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
31. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence. 11. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
CHAPTER 15 13. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
1. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 14. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 15. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
3. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 16. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 17. These things I command you, that ye love one another.
5. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing. 18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
6. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 19. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
7. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 20. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

Page 27


21. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. 5. But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
22. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. 6. But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 7. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
24. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 8. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
25. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 9. Of sin, because they believe not on me;
26. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 10. Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
27. And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. 11. Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
12. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
CHAPTER 16 13. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
1. These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 14. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
2. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 15. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
3. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 16. A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
4. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 17. Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?

Page 28


18. They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith. 31. Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
19. Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? 32. Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
20. Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 33. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
21. A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
22. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. CHAPTER 17
23. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 1. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
24. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 2. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
25. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. 3. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
26. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 4. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
27. For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. 5. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
28. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 6. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
29. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. 7. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
30. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. 8. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

Page 29


9. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 22. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
10. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 23. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
11. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thy own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovest me before the foundation of the world.
12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 25. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have know thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
13. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 26. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
14. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. CHAPTER 18
16. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 1. When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
17. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 2. And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
18. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 3. Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
19. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 4. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
20. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 5. They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
21. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 6. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

Page 30


7. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 20. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagougue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret I have I said nothing.
8. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 21. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
9. That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. 22. And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
10. Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servants name was Malchus. 23. Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
11. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? 24. Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
12. Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 25. And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
13. And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. 26. One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
14. Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. 27. Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
15. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. 28. Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
16. But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 29. Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
17. Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not. 30. They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
18. And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself. 31. Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
19. The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 32. That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.

Page 31


33. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews? 4. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
34. Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me? 5. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
35. Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? 6. When the chief priests and therefore officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
36. Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 7. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
37. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. 8. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
38. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. 9. And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
39. But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 10. Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
40. Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. 11. Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12. And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself king speaketh against Caesar.
CHAPTER 19 13. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
1. Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. 14. And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
2. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 15. But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
3. And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 16. Then he delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

17. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: 30. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
18. Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. 31. The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
19. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH KING OF THE JEWS. 32. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
20. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. 33. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
21. Then said the chief priest of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. 34. But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
22. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. 35. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
23. Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 36. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
24. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. 37. And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
25. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 38. And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
26. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 39. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
27. Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. 40. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
28. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 41. Now in the place were he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
29. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 42. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

CHAPTER 20 13. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
1. The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 14. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
2. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 15. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
3. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 16. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
4. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 17. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.
5. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 18. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
6. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 19. Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
7. And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 20. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were his disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
8. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 21. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
9. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 22. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
10. Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. 23. Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
11. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 24. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
12. And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 25. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

26. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 6. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
27. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 7. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
28. And thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 8. And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
29. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. 9. As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
30. And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 10. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
31. But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. 11. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
12. Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
CHAPTER 21 13. Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
1. After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. 14. This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
2. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 15. So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
3. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 16. He saith unto him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
4. But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 17. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
5. Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. 18. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19. This spake he, signifying by which death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20. Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 
21. Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22. Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
23. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
24. This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
25. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
