Gospel According to John 

John 1

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things came into being through him, and without him came into being not one thing that is in being.

4 In him is life, and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shines in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There came a man, sent from God; his name was John:

7 this man came for a testimony, that he might testify of the light, that all through him might believe.

8 He was not the light, but came that he might testify of the light.

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

10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came to his own country, and his own people received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, to those that believe on his name,

13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a man, but of God.

14 And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John testified of him and cried, saying: This was he of whom I said: He that comes after me has been advanced before me, because he was before me.

16 For of his fullness have we all received, and grace for grace;

17 for the law was given through Moses, the grace and the truth came through Jesus Christ.

18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.

19 And the testimony of John is this, when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him: Who art thou?

20 And he confessed and denied not, and confessed: I am not the Christ.

21 And they asked him: What then? Art thou Elijah? He said: I am not. Art thou the prophet? and he answered: No.

22 They then said to him: Who art thou? that we may give an answer to those that sent us: what sayest thou of thyself?

23 He replied: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.

24 And some had been sent from the Pharisees,

25 and they asked him, and said to him: Why then dost thou baptize, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?

26 John answered them, saying: I baptize in water: in the midst of you there stands whom you know not,

27 he that comes after me, the latchet of whose sandal I am not worthy to loose.

28 These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

29 On the next day he sees Jesus coming to him, and says: Behold, the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world.

30 This is he of whom I said: After me comes a man who has been advanced before me, because he was before me.

31 And I knew him not, but that he might be manifested to Israel, therefore have I come baptizing in water.

32 And John testified, saying: I saw the Spirit descending, like a dove, from heaven, and it abode upon him.

33 And I knew him not, but he that sent me to baptize in water, he said to me: On whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending and abiding on him, this is he that baptizeth in the Holy Spirit.

34 And I have seen, and I have testified that this is the Son of God.

35 On the next day again John stood, and two of his disciples,

36 and looking upon Jesus as he was walking, he says: Behold, the Lamb of God!

37 The two disciples heard him speaking, and followed Jesus.

38 Jesus turned and saw them following, and said to them:

39 What seek you? They said to him: Rabbi (which is called, when translated, Teacher), where abidest thou?

40 He says to them: Come and see. They came therefore and saw where he abode, and continued with him that day: it was about the tenth hour.

41 It was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, one of the two that had heard from John and followed him:

42 he first finds his own brother Simon and says to him: We have found the Messiah, which is, translated, Christ.

43 He brought him to Jesus. Looking upon him, Jesus said: Thou art Simon the son of Joanna: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is, translated. Peter.

44 On the next day he wished to go forth into Galilee, and found Philip. And Jesus said to him: Follow me.

45 But Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.

46 Philip finds Nathaniel, and says to him: We have found him of whom wrote Moses in the law, and the prophets, Jesus, who is of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

47 Nathaniel said to him: Can any thing good come out of Nazareth? Philip says to him: Come and see.

48 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him, and said concerning him: Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.

49 Nathaniel said to him: Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said to him: Before Philip called thee, whilst thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

50 Nathaniel answered him: Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art King of Israel.

51 Jesus answered and said to him: Because I said to thee that I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? Thou shalt see greater things than these.

52 And he said to him: Verily, verily, I say to you, you shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man. 

John 2

1 And on the third day a marriage took place in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there;

2 and Jesus also was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

3 And they had no wine, because the wine of the marriage feast had failed. Then said the mother of Jesus to him: They have no wine.

4 Jesus said to her: Woman, what have I to do with thee? My hour has not yet come.

5 His mother said to the waiters: Whatever he says to you, do.

6 And according to the purification of the Jews, there were lying there six water vessels of stone, containing two or three baths each.

7 Jesus says to them: Fill the water vessels with water. And they filled them to the brim.

8 And he says to them: Draw out now, and carry to the master of the feast. And they carried it.

9 But when the master of the feast had tasted the water that had been made wine, and knew not whence it was, but the waiters that drew the water knew, the master of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 and said to him: Every man at the first sets out the good wine; and when they have become drunk, the inferior: thou hast kept the good wine till now.

11 This beginning of signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed on him.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brothers and his disciples, and they remained there not many days.

13 And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 And he found in the temple those that sold oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the moneychangers sitting;

15 and having made a scourge of cords, he drove all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen, and poured out the money of the money-changers, and overturned the tables;

16 and to those that sold doves he said: Take these things hence; make not my Father‘s house a house of merchandise.

17 The disciples remembered that it is written: Zeal for thy house consumes me.

18 The Jews then answered and said to him: What sign showest thou to us, that thou doest these things?

19 Jesus answered and said to them: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

20 The Jews therefore said: Forty and six years was this temple in building, and in three days wilt thou raise it up?

21 But he spoke of the temple of his body.

22 When therefore he had risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

23 But when he was in Jerusalem on the Passover on the feast, many believed on his name, seeing his signs which he did;

24 but Jesus did not trust himself to them, because he knew all men,

25 and because he had no need that any one should testify concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man. 

John 3

1 But there was a man of the Pharisees, his name was Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews;

2 he came to him by night and said to him: Rabbi, we know that from God thou hast come as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that thou doest, unless God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said to him: Verily, verily, I say to thee, unless a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus says to him: How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother‘s womb and be born?

5 Jesus answered: Verily, verily, I say to thee, Unless a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of the heavens.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Wonder not that I said to thee: You must be born again.

8 The wind blows where it pleases, and the sound of it thou hearest, but thou knowest not whence it comes and whither it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said to him: How can these things take place?

10 Jesus answered and said to him: Art thou the teacher of Israel and knowest not these things?

11 Verily, verily, I say to thee, that which we know we speak, and that which we have seen we testify, and our testimony you receive not.

12 If I have told you earthly things and you believe not, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And no one has ascended into heaven but he that came down from heaven, the Son of man, who is in heaven.

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up;

15 that every one that believes in him may have life eternal.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes on him might not perish, but have life eternal.

17 For God sent not the Son into the world to condemn the world, hut that the world might be saved through him.

18 He that believes on him is not condemned: he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 But the condemnation is this, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light; for their works were evil.

20 For every one that does evil hates the light, and comes not to the light, lest his works may be reproved;

21 but he that does the truth comes to the light that his works may be made manifest that they are wrought in God.

22 After this came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judea, and there he abode with them and baptized.

23 But John also was baptizing in Enon near Salem, because much water was there; and they came and were baptized;

24 for not yet had John been cast into prison.

25 There arose therefore a discussion, on the part of some of the disciples of John, with a Jew, about purification.

26 And they came to John and said to him: Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond the Jordan, to whom thou hast testified, behold, he baptizes and all come to him.

27 John answered and said: A man cannot receive any thing unless it be given him from heaven.

28 You yourselves will testify for me that I said: I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

29 He that has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, greatly rejoices because of the voice of the bridegroom. This my joy therefore has been fulfilled.

30 He must increase, but I must become less.

31 He that comes from above is over all: he that is of the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He that comes from heaven

32 testifies of what he has seen and heard, and his testimony no one receives.

33 He that has received his testimony has attested that God is true.

34 For he whom God sent speaks the words of God; for not by measure does he give the Spirit.

35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand.

36 He that believes on the Son has life eternal; he that believes not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. 

John 4

1 When therefore Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John.

2 though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples baptized.

3 he left Judea and went away again into Galilee.

4 But he must needs go through Samaria.

5 He comes therefore to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the place which Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

6 And Jacob‘s well was there. Jesus then, having been wearied with the journey, sat thus on the well: it was about the sixth hour.

7 There comes a woman from Samaria to draw water. Jesus says to her: Give me to drink.

8 For his disciples had gone away into the city, to buy food,

9 The woman, who was a Samaritan, says to him: How dost thou, being a Jew, ask drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria?

10 Jesus answered and said to her: If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who he is that says to thee: Give me to drink, thou wouldst have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

11 The woman says to him: Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence hast thou the living water?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said to her: Everyone that drinks of this water shall thirst again;

14 but whoever shall drink of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a fountain of water springing up to life eternal.

15 The woman says to him: Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

16 He says to her: Go, call thy husband and come hither.

17 The woman answered and said: I have no husband, Jesus says to her: Well hast thou said: I have no husband;

18 for thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband. This thou hast spoken truly.

19 The woman says to him: Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where we ought to worship.

21 Jesus says to her: Believe me, woman, that the hour comes when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall you worship the Father.

22 You worship you know not what; we worship what we know, for salvation is of the Jews;

23 but the hour comes and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks such to worship him.

24 God is spirit; and they that worship must worship in spirit and truth.

25 The woman says to him: I know that Messiah comes, who is called Christ: when he has come, he will tell us all things.

26 Jesus says to her: I that speak to thee am he.

27 And on this came his disciples, and wondered that he talked with the woman: no one, however, said: What seekest thou or why talkest thou with her?

28 The woman therefore left her water-pot and went away into the city, and said to the men:

29 Come, see a man that has told me all things that I have done; is this the Christ?

30 They went forth from the city and came to him.

31 In n the meantime his disciples besought him, saying: Rabbi, eat.

32 But he said to them: I have food to eat that you know not of.

33 Then said the disciples one to another: Has any one brought him food?

34 Jesus says to them: My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and finish his work.

35 Say you a not that there are yet four months, and harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and behold the fields, that they are white for the harvest.

36 Already he that reaps receives reward and gathers fruit for eternal life, that he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together.

37 For in this is the saying true, that there is one that sows and another that reaps.

38 I have sent you to reap that on which you have not labored: others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.

39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him because of the word of the woman who testified that he told me all things that I had done.

40 When therefore the Samaritans came to him, they besought him to abide with them; and he abode; there two days.

41 And many more believed because of his word,

42 and said to the woman: We no longer believe because of thy saying; for we ourselves have heard, and know that this is in truth the Saviour of the world.

43 But after the two days he went forth thence into Galilee.

44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.

45 When therefore he came into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had come to the feast.

46 He came then again into Cana of Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And there was in Capernaum a nobleman, whose son was sick;

47 he, hearing that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, came to him, and besought him that he would come down and restore his son to health; for he was about to die.

48 Jesus therefore said to him: Unless you see signs and wonders, you will not believe.

49 The nobleman said to him: Sir, come down before my child die.

50 Jesus said to him: Go, thy son lives. The man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and went.

51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him: Thy son lives.

52 He then inquired of them the hour in which he began to mend: they then said to him: Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

53 The father therefore knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus had said to him: Thy son lives; and he himself believed and all his house.

54 This again is the second sign that Jesus did on coming out of Judea into Galilee. 

John 5

1 After this was the feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 And there is in Jerusalem at the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a multitude of sick persons, blind, lame, withered.

4 [no verse]

5 But there was a man there that had been sick thirty-eight years.

6 Jesus saw him lying, and, knowing that he had already been sick a long time, said to him: Wilt thou be restored to health?

7 The sick man answered him: Sir, I have no man, that when the water is stirred he may put me into the pool; but while I am coming another goes down before me.

8 Jesus says to him: Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9 And the man was restored to health, and took up his bed and walked; but a sabbath was on that day.

10 The Jews then said to him that had been cured: It is a sabbath, and it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them: He that made me well said to me: Take up thy bed and walk.

12 They asked him: Who is the man that said to thee: Take up and walk?

13 But the sick man knew not who he was; for Jesus had withdrawn, as a multitude was in the place.

14 After this Jesus finds him in the temple; and he said to him: Behold, thou hast been restored to health: sin no more, lest something worse befall thee.

15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus that had made him well.

16 And for this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did these things on the sabbath.

17 But he answered them: My Father works till now, and I work.

18 For this reason did the Jews seek the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.

19 Jesus therefore answered and said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do; for whatever he does, these also the Son does in like manner,

20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that he himself does; and greater works than these will he show him, that you may wonder.

21 For as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so also the Son makes alive whom he will.

22 For neither does the Father judge any one, but has given all judicial authority to the Son,

23 that all may honor the Son as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father who sent him.

24 Verily, verily, I say to you, that he that hears my word and believes on him that sent me has life eternal, and comes not into condemnation, but has passed out of death into life.

25 Verily, verily, I say to you, that the hour comes, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father has life in himself, so has he given to the Son also to have life in himself.

27 And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of man.

28 Wonder not at this, for the hour comes in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29 and shall come forth, those that have done good, to the resurrection of life; those that have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

30 I can do nothing of myself: as I hear I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I seek not my will, but the will of him that sent me.

31 If I testify of myself, my testimony is not true:

32 there is another that testifies of me, and you know that the testimony which he testifies of me is true.

33 You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth;

34 but I receive not testimony from man, but these things I say that you may be saved.

35 He was the burning and the shining light, and you were willing to rejoice for an hour in his light.

36 But I have testimony greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has given me to accomplish, the works themselves that I do, testify of me that the Father has sent me.

37 And the Father who sent me, he has testified of me: neither his voice have you heard at any time, nor his shape have you seen,

38 and his word you have not abiding in you, for whom he has sent, him you believe not.

39 You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life, and they are they that testify of me;

40 and yet you will not come to me that you may have life.

41 I receive not glory from men,

42 but I know you, that you have not the love of God in you.

43 I have come in my Father‘s name, and you receive me not: if another should come in his own name, him you would receive.

44 How can you believe while receiving glory one from another, and you seek not the glory that is from the only God?

45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is he that accuses you, Moses, in whom you trust.

46 For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

47 But if you believe not his writings, how will you believe my words? 

John 6

1 After this Jesus went away beyond the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias;

2 and a great multitude followed him because they saw the signs that he did in case of the sick.

3 But Jesus went up into the mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

4 And the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near.

5 Jesus then, lifting up his eyes and seeing that a great multitude was coming to him, said to Philip: Whence can we buy bread, that these may eat?

6 But this he said to try him; for he himself knew what he was about to do.

7 Philip answered him: Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not enough for these, that each one may take some little.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, says to him:

9 There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two little fishes; but what are these among so many?

10 Jesus said: Make the men recline. And there was much grass in the place. The men therefore reclined, in number about five thousand.

11 Jesus therefore took the loaves, and gave thanks, and gave to those that reclined; in like manner also of the fishes as much as they wished.

12 But when they were filled, he said to his disciples: Gather up the broken pieces that remain, that nothing be lost.

13 They gathered them therefore, and filled twelve traveling-baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained after they had eaten.

14 The men therefore, seeing the sign that he had done, said: This is in truth the prophet that comes into the world.

15 Jesus then, knowing that they were about to come and seize him to make him king, fled again into the mountain himself alone.

16 But when evening had come, his disciples went down to the sea,

17 and having entered a ship, were going beyond the sea to Capernaum. But darkness overtook them, and Jesus had not yet come to them:

18 the sea also arose, because a great wind was blowing.

19 Having rowed therefore about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and coming near the ship, and they were afraid.

20 But he said to them: It is I, be not afraid.

21 They then willingly received him into the ship, and immediately the ship was at the land to which they were going.

22 On the morrow the multitude that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other little ship there but one, and that Jesus had not entered the ship with his disciples, but his disciples had gone away alone:

23 however, little ships had come from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread when the Lord had given thanks.

24 When, therefore, the multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they entered the little ships and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.

25 And having found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him: Rabbi, when earnest thou hither?

26 Jesus answered them and said: Verily, verily, I say to you, you seek me not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.

27 Labor not for the food that perishes, but for the food that abides to life eternal, which the Son of man gives you; for him has God the Father attested.

28 They said therefore to him: What must we do that we may work the works of God?

29 Jesus answered and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.

30 They said then to him: What doest thou then as a sign, that we may see and believe thee; what workest thou?

31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written: Bread from heaven gave he them to eat.

32 Then said Jesus to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the bread from heaven, the true.

33 For the bread which is God‘s is he that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

34 They said therefore to him: Lord, always give us this bread.

35 Jesus then said to them: I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall not hunger, and he that believes on me shall never thirst.

36 But I said to you that you have seen and do not believe.

37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me, and him that comes to me I will not cast out;

38 for I have come down from heaven, not that I might do my will, but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that I shall lose nothing of all that he has given me, but shall raise it up in the last day.

40 For this is the will of my Father, that whoever sees the Son and believes on him may have life eternal, and I shall raise him up in the last day.

41 The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said: I am the bread that came down from heaven;

42 and they said: Is not this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How now says this man: I have come down from heaven?

43 Jesus answered and said to them: Murmur not among yourselves.

44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day.

45 It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God: every one that has heard from the Father and has learned, comes to me.

46 Not that any one has seen the Father, but he that is from God, he has seen the Father.

47 Verily, verily, I say to you, he that believes has life eternal.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness and died:

50 this is the bread that comes down from heaven, that any one may eat of it and not die.

51 I am the living bread, that came down from heaven: if any one eat of my bread, he shall live forever; and the bread also that I will give for the life of the world, is my flesh.

52 The Jews then contended one with another, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

53 Jesus therefore said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

54 He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood has life eternal, and I will raise him up in the, last day.

55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.

56 He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.

57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, he also that eats me even he shall live because of me.

58 This is the bread that came down from heaven, not as the fathers ate and died: he that eats this bread shall live forever.

59 These things spoke he in the synagogue as he taught in Capernaum.

60 Therefore many of his disciples on hearing it said: A hard saying is this: who can hear it?

61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured concerning this, said to them: Does this offend you?

62 If then you should see the Son of man ascending where he was before?

63 The spirit is that which makes alive; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I have spoken to you are spirit, and are life.

64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who it was that would deliver him up.

65 And he said: For this reason have I said to you that no one can come to me unless it be given him of the Father.

66 From this time therefore many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him.

67 Jesus then said to the twelve: Will you also go away?

68 Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? The words of eternal life hast thou;

69 and we have believed and known that thou art the Holy One of God.

70 He answered them: Have I not chosen you twelve? and one of you is a devil.

71 But he spoke of Judas, son of Simon Tscariot; for he was about to deliver him up, being one of the twelve. 

John 7

1 After this Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.

2 But the feast of the Jews, that of tabernacles, was near.

3 His brothers therefore said to him: Depart hence and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest;

4 for no one does any thing in secret and desires himself to be known openly. If thou doest these things, make thyself manifest to the world.

5 For neither did his brothers believe on him.

6 Jesus says to them: My time is not yet present, but your time is always ready.

7 The world cannot hate you, but me it hates, because I testify of it that its works are evil.

8 Do you go up to the feast: I go not up to this feast, because my time has not yet fully come.

9 Having said these things, he abode in Galilee.

10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he himself also went up, not openly, but in secret.

11 The Jews then sought for him at the feast, and said: Where is he?

12 And there was much murmuring concerning him among the multitude; some said: He is a good man: others said: No, but he deceives the multitude.

13 No one, however, spoke boldly concerning him, for fear of the Jews.

14 But now at the middle of the festival Jesus went up into the, temple and taught.

15 The Jews therefore were astonished, saying: How knows this man letters, not having learned?

16 Jesus then answered them and said: My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me:

17 if any one will do his will he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or I speak of myself.

18 He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: he that seeks the glory of him that sent him, he is true, and unrighteousness is not in him.

19 Has not Moses given you the law? and none of you does the law. Why do you seek to kill me?

20 The multitude answered: Thou hast a demon: who seekest to kill thee?

21 Jesus answered and said to them: One work I have done and you all wonder.

22 Moses has given you circumcision, not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers, and on the sabbath day you circumcise a man.

23 If a man receives circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because I restored the entire man to health on the sabbath?

24 Judge not, according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

25 Then said some of those of Jerusalem: Is not this he whom they seek to kill?

26 And lo, he speaks boldly, and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers then certainly known that this is the Christ?

27 However, we know this man, whence he is; but when the Christ comes, no one knows whence he is.

28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying: You both know me, and you know whence I am; and I have not come of myself, but he is true that sent me, whom you know not:

29 I know him, because I am from him and he sent me.

30 They therefore sought to take him, and no one laid his hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.

31 But many of the multitude believed on him, and said: When Christ comes, will he do more signs than these that this man does?

32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent attendants that they might take him.

33 Therefore said Jesus: Yet a little while I am with you, and I go to him that sent me.

34 You shall seek me and shall not find me, and where I am you cannot come.

35 The Jews therefore said one to another: Whither does this man intend to go, that we shall not find him? Does he intend to go among the dispersion of the Greeks and teach the Greeks?

36 What means this word that he spoke: You shall seek me and shall not find me, and where I am, you cannot come?

37 But on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying: If any one thirst, let him come and drink.

38 He that believes on me, as the scripture said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

39 But this he spoke of the Spirit which those that believe on him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

40 Some of the multitude therefore, hearing these words, said: This is in truth the prophet;

41 others said: This is the Christ; others said: Does the Christ then come out of Galilee?

42 Has not the scripture said that the Christ comes of the posterity of David, and from Bethlehem, the town where David was?

43 There was therefore a division among the multitude, because of him;

44 but some of them wished to take him; no one, however, laid hands on him.

45 The attendants therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said to them: Why did you not bring him?

46 The attendants answered: Never man so spoke, as this man speaks.

47 The Pharisees answered them: Are you also deceived?

48 Has any one of the rulers believed on him, or of the Pharisees?

49 But the multitude, that knows not the law, are cursed.

50 Nicodemus, being one of them, says to them:

51 Does our law condemn the, man unless it first hear from him and know what he does?

52 They answered and said to him: Art thou also of Galilee? Search and see that out of Galilee a prophet arises not.

53 And they went each one to his own house. 

John 8

8:1 But Jesus went into the mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he comes again into the temple, and all the people came to him.

3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in sin, and having placed her in the midst.

4 the priests say to him, tempting him, that they may have an accusation against him: Teacher, this woman has been taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now, Moses in the law commanded us to stone such: but now what sayest thou?

6 But Jesus stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground.

7 But as they continued asking, he lifted himself up and said to them: Let him that is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.

8 And he again stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground.

9 And each one of the Jews went out, beginning from the elder, so that all went out; and he was left alone, and the woman being in the midst. 10 And Jesus lifted himself up and said to the woman: Where are they? Has no one condemned thee?

11 And she said to him: No one, sir. And he said: Neither do I condemn thee; go, from this time sin no more.

12 Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying: I am the Light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

13 The Pharisees therefore said to him: Thou testifiest of thyself: thy testimony is not true.

14 Jesus answered and said to them: Though I testify of myself, my testimony is true, for I know whence I came and whither I go: you know not whence I come or whither I go.

15 You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.

16 And even if I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and he that sent me.

17 And even in your law it is written that the testimony of two men is true.

18 I am one testifying of myself, and the Father who sent me testifies of me.

19 They said therefore to him: Where is thy Father? Jesus answered: You know neither me nor my Father: if you had known me, you would have known my Father also.

20 These words spoke he in the treasury while teaching in the temple; and no one took him, because his hour had not yet come.

21 He therefore said again to them: I go away, and you shall seek me, and in your sin you shall die: whither I go you cannot come.

22 The Jews then said: Will he kill himself, because he says: Whither I go you cannot come?

23 And he said to them: You are from beneath, I am from above: you are of this world, I am not of this world.

24 Therefore said I to you that you shall die in your sins; for if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sins.

25 They said therefore to him: Who art thou? Jesus said to them: Altogether that which I also say to you.

26 I have many things to say and to judge of you; but he that sent me is true, and what I have heard from him, these things I speak unto the world.

27 They knew not that he spoke to them of the Father.

28 Then said Jesus: When you shall have, lifted up the Son of man, then you shall know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father has taught me, I speak these things.

29 And he that sent me is with me: he has not left me alone, for I do always the things that are pleasing to him.

30 While he was speaking these things many believed on him.

31 Jesus then said to the Jews that believed on him: If you abide in my word, you are my disciples in truth,

32 and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

33 They answered to him: We are Abraham‘s posterity, and have never been in bondage to any one; how sayest thou: You shall become free?

34 Jesus answered them: Verily, verily, I say to you, that every one that does sin is a servant of sin.

35 But the servant abides not in the house forever: the Son abides forever.

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

37 I know that you are Abraham‘s posterity; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.

38 I speak what things I have seen with my Father, and you then do what things you have heard from your father.

39 They answered and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus says to them: If you were the children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham;

40 but now you seek to kill me, a man that has spoken to you the truth, which I heard from God: this Abraham did not.

41 You do the works of your fathers. They said to him: We have not been born of lewdness; we have one Father, God.

42 Jesus said to them: If God were your Father, you would love me; for I came forth from God and have come hither: nor indeed have I come of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why know you not my speech? because you cannot hear my word.

44 You are of your father, the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks what is false, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it.

45 But because I tell you the truth, you believe me not.

46 Which of you convinces me of sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe me?

47 He that is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you hear not, because you are not of God.

48 The Jews answered and said to him: Do we not well say that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a demon?

49 Jesus answered: I have not a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.

50 But I seek not my glory: there is that seeks and judges.

51 Verily, verily, I say to you, if any one keep my word, he shall never see death.

52 The Jews said to him: Now we know that thou hast a demon. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest: If any one keep my word, he shall never taste of death:

53 art thou greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

54 Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father that glorifies me, of whom you say that he is your God;

55 and yet you have not known him, but I know him. If I should say that I do not know him, I should be a liar like you; but I know him, and his word I keep.

56 Abraham, your father, rejoiced that he could see my day, and he saw it and was glad.

57 The Jews then said to him: Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

58 Jesus said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, before Abraham came into being, I am.

59 They therefore took up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple. 

John 9

1 And passing by he saw a man blind from his birth.

2 And his disciples asked him, saying: Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?

3 Jesus answered: Neither this man sinned nor his parents, but that the works of God might be manifested in him.

4 We must work the works of him that sent us while it is day: there comes night, when no man can work.

5 While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

6 He said these things, and spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay,

7 and said to him: Go wash in the pool of Siloam, which is, translated. Sent. He went therefore and washed, and came seeing.

8 The neighbors therefore, and those that had seen him before, that he was a beggar, said: Is not this he that sat and begged?

9 Others said that this is he; others said: No, but he is like him. He said: I am he.

10 They therefore said to him: How were thy eyes opened?

11 He answered: The man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes, and said to me: Go to Siloam and wash. Having gone therefore and washed, I received sight.

12 They said to him: Where is he? He says: I know not.

13 They bring to the Pharisees him that was formerly blind.

14 And it was a sabbath on the day in which Jesus made clay and opened his eyes.

15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received sight. He said to them: He put clay upon my eyes and I washed and do see.

16 Some of the Pharisees therefore said: This man is not from God, for he keeps not the sabbath. Others said: How can a man a sinner do such signs? And there was a division among them.

17 They say therefore to the blind man again: What sayest thou of him, because he has opened thy eyes? He said: He is a prophet.

18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and had received sight, till they had called the parents of him that had received sight,

19 and asked them, saying: Is this your son, of whom you say that he was born blind? How, then, does he now see?

20 His parents therefore answered and said: We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;

21 but how he now sees we know not, or who opened his eyes we know not: ask him; he is of age: he shall speak for himself

22 These things said his parents because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if any one should confess him to be Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

23 For this reason his parents said that he is of age, ask him.

24 They therefore a second time called the man that had been blind, and said to him: Give glory to God: we know that this man is a sinner.

25 He then answered: If he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, being blind, I now see.

26 They said therefore to him: What did he for thee? How opened he thy eyes?

27 He answered them: I have told you already, and you did not hear: why will you hear again? Will you also become his disciples?

28 They reviled him and said: Thou art a disciple of that man, but we are Moses‘ disciples:

29 we know that God spoke to Moses, but this man, we know not whence he is.

30 The man answered and said to them: Why, in this is that which is wonderful, that you know not whence he is, and yet he has opened my eyes.

31 We know that God hears not sinners, but if any one be a worshiper of God and do his will, him he hears.

32 Never was it heard that any one opened the eyes of one that had been born blind:

33 if this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

34 They answered and said to him: Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and he found him and said: Dost thou believe on the Son of man?

36 He answered and said: And who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him?

37 Jesus said to him: Thou hast both seen him, and he it is that talks with thee.

38 He said, Lord, I believe; and he worshiped him.

39 And Jesus said: For judgment have I come into this world, that those that see not may see, and that those that see may become blind.

40 Some of the Pharisees that were with him heard, and said to him: Are we also blind?

41 Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you would not have sin; but now you say: We see: your sin remains. 

John 10

1 Verily, verily, I say to you, he that enters not through the door into the sheepfold, but goes up by some other way, he is a thief and a robber:

2 but he that enters through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 To him the porter opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

4 When he puts forth all of his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice;

5 but a stranger they will not follow, but flee from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.

6 This parable spoke Jesus to them; but they knew not what things they were that he spoke to them.

7 Jesus therefore said: Verily, verily, I say to you: I am the door of the sheep.

8 All as many as have come are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.

9 I am the door: through me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10 The thief comes not but that he may steal and kill and destroy: I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep:

12 he that is a hireling and not a shepherd, to whom the sheep do not belong, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf seizes and scatters them,

13 because he is a hireling, and cares not for the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd, and know mine, and mine know me,

15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also must I bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold, one shepherd.

17 For this reason my Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.

18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. Authority have I to lay it down, and authority have I to take it again: this commandment I received from my Father.

19 There arose again a division among the Jews because of these words.

20 Therefore many of them said: He has a demon and is mad; why hear him?

21 Others said: These words are not of one that has a demon: can a demon open the eyes of the blind?

22 But the feast of dedication was held in Jerusalem; it was winter;

23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in Solomon‘s porch.

24 The Jews therefore came around him and said to him: How long dost thou keep us in suspense? If thou art the Christ, tell us plainly.

25 Jesus answered: I have told you, and you do not believe: the works

13 t that I do in my Father‘s name, these 1 testify of me;

26 but you believe not, because you are not of my sheep.

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me,

28 and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.

29 What the Father has given to me is greater than all, and no one can snatch them out of the Father‘s hand.

30 I and the Father are one.

31 Again the Jews took up stones to stone him.

32 Jesus answered them: Many good works have I shown you from the Father; for what one of these do you stone me?

33 The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy, and because thou, being man, makest thyself God.

34 Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law, I said: You are gods?

35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken:

36 of him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, say you: Thou blasphemest; because I said: I am the Son of God?

37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not;

38 but if I do, although you believe not me, believe the works, that you may know and acknowledge that the Father is in me and I in the Father.

39 They then sought to take him, and he went forth from their hand.

40 And he went away again beyond the Jordan into the place where John was first baptizing, and abode there.

41 And many came to him and said: John indeed did no sign, but all things whatever John said of this man were true.

42 And many believed on him there. 

John 11 

l But a man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister Martha.

2 And it was Mary that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.

3 The sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

4 But Jesus hearing it, said: This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.

5 Now, Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.

6 When therefore he had heard that he was sick, then indeed he abode two days in the place where he was:

7 then after this he says to the disciples: Let us go into Judea again.

8 The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews just now sought to stone thee, arid goest thou thither again?

9 Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If any one walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of the world:

10 if any one walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.

11 These things said he, and after this he says to them: Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go that I may awake him.

12 Then the disciples said to him: Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he shall be saved.

13 Jesus, however, had spoken of his death; but they supposed that he spoke of the rest of sleep.

14 Therefore Jesus then said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead;

15 and I rejoice for your sakes, in order that you may believe, that I was not there; but let us go to him.

16 Thomas, who is called Didymus, then said to his fellow-disciples: Let I us also go, that we may die with him.

17 Jesus came therefore and found that he had been four days in the tomb.

18 But Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.

19 And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary and their friends, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, met him; but Mary sat in the house.

21 Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died.

22 And now I know that whatever things thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee.

23 Jesus says to her: Thy brother shall rise.

24 Martha says to him: I know that he will rise in the resurrection, in the last day.

25 Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life; he that believes on me, though he were dead, he shall live,

26 and whoever lives and believes on me shall never die: believest thou this?

27 She says to him: Yes, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, he that comes into the world.

28 And after saying this she went away and called Mary her sister secretly, saying: The Teacher is present, and calls for thee.

29 When she heard, she rose quickly and came to him;

30 but Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was in the place where Martha had met him.

31 Therefore the Jews that were with her in the house, and were comforting her, seeing Mary, that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb, that she might weep there.

32 Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell at his feet, saying to him: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died.

33 Jesus therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, was greatly moved in spirit, and was troubled,

34 and said: Where have you laid him? They say to him: Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Therefore said the Jews: See how he loved him.

37 But some of them said: Could not this man, that opened the eyes of the blind man, have caused that even this man should not die?

38 Jesus therefore, again greatly moved within himself, comes to the tomb; but it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus says: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that had died, says to him: Lord, the smell is now offensive; for he has been dead four days.

40 Jesus says to her: Did I not tell thee that if thou wouldst believe thou shouldst see the glory of God?

41 They therefore took away the stone; but Jesus lifted up his eyes and said: Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 But I knew that thou always hearest me; but yet, on account of the multitude that stands around, I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me.

43 And having said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth.

44 And he that had been dead came forth, bound hands and feet with swathing bands; and his face was bound around with a handkerchief. Jesus says to them: Loose him, and let him go.

45 Many therefore of the Jews, that had come to Mary and had seen what he did, believed on him;

46 but some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.

47 Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees brought together the Sanhedrim, and said: What do we, for this man does many signs?

48 If we let him alone thus, all will believe on him; and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.

49 But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being chief priest that year, said to them: You know nothing,

50 neither do you consider that it is profitable for us that one man die for the people and not that the whole nation perish.

51 But this he spoke not of himself, but, being chief priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation;

52 and not for the nation only, but that he might gather into one the children of God also, that were scattered abroad.

53 From that day therefore they took counsel to kill him.

54 Jesus then no longer walked openly among the Jews; but went away thence into the country near the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim; and there he abode with his disciples.

55 But the passover of the Jews was near, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the passover, that they might purify themselves.

56 They therefore sought Jesus and said among themselves while standing in the temple: What think you, that he will not come to the feast?

57 But the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commandments that, if any knew where he was, he should make it known, in order that they might take him. 

John 12

1 Jesus therefore, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead.

2 They therefore made him a supper there, and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those that reclined at table with him.

3 Then Mary took a pound of the ointment of pure nard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the perfume of the ointment.

4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, he that was about to deliver him up, says:

5 Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor?

6 But this he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the bag he carried what was thrown in.

7 Jesus therefore said: Let her alone; she bought it that she might keep it to the day of my burial.

8 For the poor you have always with you, but me you have not always.

9 The great multitude of the Jews therefore knew that he was there, and came not because of Jesus only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he raised from the dead.

10 But the chief priests had determined that they would kill Lazarus also,

11 because many of the Jews, on account of him, went away and believed on Jesus.

12 On the next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, hearing that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.

13 took branches of palm-trees and went forth to meet him, and cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord, and blessed is the King of Israel.

14 But Jesus, finding a young ass, sat upon it, as it is written:

15 Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, thy King comes sitting upon the foal of an ass.

16 These things his disciples knew not at first, but when Jesus had been glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things for him.

17 The multitude that was with him therefore testified that he had called Lazarus from the tomb, and raised him from the dead.

18 For this reason also the multitude met him, because they heard that he had done this sign.

19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: You see that you profit nothing: behold, the world has gone after him.

20 But of those that went up to worship at the feast, there were some Greeks:

21 these therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying: Sir, we wish to see Jesus.

22 Philip comes and tells Andrew: Andrew and Philip come and tell Jesus.

23 But Jesus answered them, saying: The hour has come that the Son of man should be glorified.

24 Verily, verily, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, itself abides alone; but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.

25 He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.

26 If any one serve me, let him follow me, and where I am, there shall my servant also be: if any one serve me him will my Father honor.

27 Now is my soul troubled, and what; shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause came I to this hour.

28 Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice from heaven: I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.

29 Therefore the multitude that stood by, hearing it, said that it thundered: others said: An angel has spoken to him.

30 Jesus answered and said: Not for my sake came this voice, but for yours.

31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out,

32 and I, when I shall have been lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.

33 But this he said, signifying by what kind of death he was about to die.

34 Then the multitude answered him: We have heard out of the law that the Christ abides forever, and how sayest thou that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this, the Son of man?

35 Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while the light is among you. Walk while you have the light, that darkness overtake you not; and he that walks in darkness knows not whither he goes.

36 While you have the light, believe on the light, that you may become sons of light. These things spoke Jesus and went away and hid himself from them.

37 But though he had done so many signs before them, they believed not on him.

38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: Lord, who of us has believed what is heard? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

39 For this reason they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:

40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and should turn and I should give them health.

41 These things said Isaiah, because he saw his glory, and spoke of him.

42 Yet however, of the rulers, many believed on him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess, lest they should be put out of the synagogue;

43 for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.

44 But Jesus cried and said: He that believes on me believes not on me, but on him that sent me.

45 and he that sees me sees him that sent me.

46 I have come a light into the world, that whoever believes on me may not abide in darkness.

47 And if any one hear my words and keep them not, I judge him not; for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 He that rejects me and receives not my words, has that which judges him: the word that I have spoken, that shall judge him in the last day.

49 For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father who sent me, he himself has given me commandment what I should say and what I should speak.

50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal. What things therefore I speak, as the Father said to me, so I speak. 

John 13

1 But before the feast of passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come that he should go out of this world to the Father, having loved his own that were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2 And when supper had ended, as the devil had already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray him.

3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come forth from God and was going to God,

4 rises from supper and lays aside his garments; and having taken a towel, he girded himself:

5 then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.

6 He then comes to Simon Peter; he says to him: Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

7 Jesus answered and said to him: What I am doing thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know after this.

8 Peter says to him: Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him: Unless I wash thee, thou hast no part with me.

9 Simon Peter says to him: Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10 Jesus says to him: He that has bathed has no need to wash his hands and head, but is wholly clean; and you are clean, but not all.

11 For he knew him that would deliver him up; for this reason he said: Not all of you are clean.

12 When therefore he had washed their feet and had taken his garments, and reclined again at table, he said to them: Do you know what I have done for you?

13 You call me: Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for I am.

14 If, then, I, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another;

15 for I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

16 Verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor is an apostle greater than he that sent him.

17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

18 I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the scripture might be fulfilled: He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.

19 Even now I tell you before it comes to pass, that when it shall have come to pass you may believe that I am he.

20 Verily, verily, I say to you, he that receives whom I shall send receives me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me.

21 After saying these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified and said: Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you shall deliver me up.

22 The disciples looked one at another, doubting concerning whom he spoke.

23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining in the bosom of Jesus:

24 Simon Peter then nods to this one and says to him: Tell who it is of whom he speaks.

25 Therefore he, leaning back thus on the breast of Jesus, says to him: Lord, who is it?

26 Jesus answers: He it is for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him. Therefore, having dipped the morsel, he takes it and gives it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot.

27 And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him. Jesus therefore says to him: What thou doest, do quickly.

28 But no one of those reclining at table knew for what purpose he said this to him;

29 for some supposed, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus said to him: Buy the things of which we have need for the feast, or that he should give something to the poor.

30 Having therefore received the morsel, he went out Immediately; and it was night.

31 When therefore he had gone out, Jesus said: Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

32 If God is glorified in him. God also will glorify him in himself, and he will immediately glorify him.

33 Little children, yet a little while am I with you: you shall seek me, and as I said to the Jews, that where I am you cannot come, to you also I say it now.

34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35 In this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.

36 Simon Peter says to him: Lord. whither goest thou? Jesus answered: Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me hereafter.

37 Peter says to him: Lord, why can I not follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee.

38 Jesus answered: Wilt thou lay down thy life for me? Verily, verily, I say to thee, a cock shall not crow till thou hast denied me three times. 

John 14

1 Let not your hearts be troubled: believe on God, believe also on me.

2 In my Father‘s house are many mansions; if not so, I would have told you; for I am going to prepare a place for you.

3 And when I shall have gone and prepared a place for you, I will come again, and take you to myself, that where I am you also may be.

4 And whither I go you know the way.

5 Thomas says to him: Lord, we know not whither thou goest, and how know we the way?

6 Jesus says to him: I am he way, and the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father but through me. 7 If you have known me, you shall know my Father also; and even now you know him and lave seen him.

8 Philip says to him: Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.

9 Jesus says to him: So long a time am I with you, and hast thou not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father: how sayest thou: show us the Father?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I speak not of myself: the Father, who abides in me, does the works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me: if not, believe because of the works themselves.

12 Verily, verily, I say to you, he that believes on me, the works that I do he also shall do, and greater works than these shall he do because I go to the Father.

13 And whatever you shall ask in my name, this will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask any thing in my name. I will do it.

15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

16 And I will entreat the Father, and anther Advocate will he give you, that he may be with you for ever,

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it sees* him not, neither knows him: you know him, because he abides with you and shall be in you.

* Discerns or acknowledges him not

18 I will not leave you orphans; I am coming to you.

19 Yet a little while and the world sees me no more; but you shall see me; because I live and you shall live.

20 In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.

21 He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me; and he that loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will manifest myself to him.

22 Judas, not Iscariot, says to him: Lord, and how is it that thou will manifest thyself to us, and not to the world?

23 Jesus answered and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our abode with him.

24 He that loves me not keeps not my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but the Father‘s that sent me.

25 These things have I spoken to you while abiding with you;

26 but the Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and shall bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you.

27 Peace I leave you, my peace I give you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

28 You heard that I said to you: I go away and come to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that when it comes to pass you may believe.

30 No longer will I talk much with you; for the prince of the world comes, and has nothing in me,

31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go hence. 

John 15

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.

2 Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away, and every one that bears fruit, he cleanses, that it may bear more fruit.

3 You are now clean, because of the word that I have spoken to you:

4 abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me.

5 I am the vine, you the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.

6 If any one abide not in me, he is cast out as the branch and withers, and they gather it and throw it into the fire, and it is burned.

7 If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.

8 In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

9 As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love.

10 If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love, as I have kept my Father‘s commandments and abide in his love.

11 These things I have spoken to you that my joy may be in you and your joy may be fulfilled.

12 My commandment is this, that you love one another as I have loved you.

13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

14 You are my friends, if you do what things I command you.

15 I no longer call you servants, because the servant knows not what his lord does; but I have called you friends, because An all things that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you that you may go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me first.

19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

20 Remember the word that I spoke to you: The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do to you on account of my name, because they know not him that sent me.

22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.

23 He that hates me hates my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works that no other did, they would have had no sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without a cause.

26 When the Advocate has come, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me;

27 and you also shall testify, because you have been with me from the beginning. 

John 16

1 These things have I spoken to you that you may not be offended.

2 They will put you out of the synagogues: indeed, the hour comes that every one that kills you will think that he offers service to God.

3 And these things will they do because they have not known the Father nor me.

4 But these things I have spoken to you that when the hour comes you may remember them, that I told you. And these things I told you not from the beginning, because I was with you.

5 But now I go to him that sent me, and no one of you asks me: Whither goest thou?

6 And yet, because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.

7 But I tell you the truth, it is profitable for you that I go away. For if I go not away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

8 And when he comes, he will convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.

9 Of sin indeed, because they believe not on me;

10 but of righteousness, because I go to the Father and you see me no more;

11 but of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now;

13 but when he has come, the Spirit of truth, he shall guide you in all the truth; for he shall not speak of himself, but whatever he hears he shall speak, and he shall announce to you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me, for he shall take of mine and announce it to you.

15 All things whatever the Father has are mine: therefore I said that he takes of mine and announces to you.

16 A little while, and you see me no more, and again a little while, and you shall see me.

17 Some of his disciples therefore said one to another: What is this that he says to us: A little while, and you see me not, and again a little while, and you shall see me? and that 1 go to the Father?

18 They said therefore: This, what is it that he says, The little while? We know not what he says.

19 Jesus knew that they desired to ask him, and he said to them: Concerning this do you inquire among yourselves because I said: A little while, and you see me not, and again a little while, and you shall see me?

20 Verily, verily, I say to you, that you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall become joy.

21 The wife, when she is in labor, has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she has brought forth the child, she no longer remembers the affliction for joy that a man has been born into the world.

22 And you therefore now indeed have sorrow; but I shall see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one takes from you.

23 And in that day, of me you shall ask nothing. Verily, verily, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.

24 Till now you have asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be fulfilled.

25 These things I have spoken to you in parables: the hour comes when I will no longer speak to you in parables, but will tell you plainly concerning the Father.

26 In that day you shall ask in my name, and 1 say not to you that I will beseech the Father for you;

27 for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from God.

28 I came forth from the Father, and have come into the world: again I leave the world and go to the Father.

29 His disciples say: Behold, now thou speakest plainly, and utterest no parable.

30 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and hast no need that any one should ask thee: in this we believe that thou earnest forth from God.

31 Jesus answered them: Do you now believe?

32 Behold, the hour comes, and has come, that you shall be scattered each one to his own and leave me alone; and yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.

33 These things I have spoken to you that in me you may have peace. In the world you have affliction; but take courage, I have overcome the world. 

John 17

1 These things spoke Jesus; and, lifting his eyes to heaven, he said: Father, the hour has come: glorify thy Son, that the Son may glorify thee,

2 as thou hast given him authority over all flesh, that to all that thou hast given him he may give them life eternal.

3 But eternal life is this, that they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

4 I have glorified thee on the earth, having finished the work that thou gavest me to do;

5 and now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was.

6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world. Thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word;

7 now they know that all things whatever thou hast given me are from thee;

8 for the words that thou gavest me I have given them, and they have received them, and have known in truth that I came forth from thee, and have believed that thou didst send me.

9 I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for those that thou hast given me, for they are thine,

10 and all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I have been glorified in them.

11 And I am no longer in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in my name that thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we.

12 When I was with them I kept them in thy name that thou hast given me, and I have guarded them, and no one of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the Scripture may be fulfilled.

13 But now I come to thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

14 I have given them thy word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world as I am not of the world.

15 I pray not that thou take them out of the world, but that thou keep them from the evil one.

16 They are not of the world, as I am not of the world.

17 Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.

18 As thou didst send me into the world, I sent them into the world;

19 and for them I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in the truth.

20 But not for these only do I pray, but also for those that believe on me through their word,

21 that they all may be one, as thou. Father, art in me and I in thee, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that thou didst send me.

22 And the glory that thou hast given me I have given them, that they may be one as we are one:

23 I in them and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one, that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.

24 Father, as to what thou hast given me, I would that they also be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which thou hast given me because thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

25 Righteous Father, though the world has not known thee, yet I have known thee, and these have known that thou didst send me;

26 and I have made known to them thy name, and will make it known, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them and I in them. 

John 18

1 Having said these things, Jesus went forth with his disciples beyond the brook of Cedar, where was a garden, into which he entered, himself and his disciples.

2 But Judas, also, who delivered him up, knew the place, because Jesus had often gone thither in company with his disciples.

3 Judas therefore, having received the band, the attendants from the chief priests and from the Pharisees, comes thither with torches and lamps and weapons.

4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that were coming upon him, went forth and said to them: Whom seek you?

5 They answered him: Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus says to them: I am he. But Judas also, who delivered him up, stood with them.

6 When therefore he said to them: I am he, they went back and fell on the ground.

7 Again therefore he asked them: Whom seek you? And they said: Jesus the Nazarene.

8 Jesus answered: I told you that I am he: if then ye seek me, let these go away.

9 That the word might be fulfilled which he spoke: Of those that thou hast given me I have lost none.

10 Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it and struck the servant of the chief priest, and cut off his right ear; and the name of the servant was Malchus.

11 Jesus then said to Peter: Put the sword into the sheath. The cup that the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?

12 Therefore the band and the officer and the attendants of the Jews took Jesus and bound him,

13 and led him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas who was chief priest that year.

14 and it was Caiaphas that advised the Jews that it was profitable that one man should die for the people.

15 But there followed Jesus, Simon Peter and another disciple. And that disciple was acquainted with the chief priest, and went with Jesus into the court of the chief priest,

16 but Peter stood at the gate without. Then the other disciple, the acquaintance of the chief priest, went in and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought Peter in.

17 Then the maidservant that kept the door says to Peter: Art not thou also of the disciples of this man? He says: I am not.

18 But the servants and the attendants, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold, were standing and warming them selves; and Peter also was standing with them and warming himself.

19 Then the chief priest asked Jesus concerning his disciples and concerning his teaching.

20 Jesus answered him: I have spoken plainly to the world: I have always taught in a synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jews come together, and in secret have I spoken nothing.

21 Why dost thou ask me? Ask those that have heard what I spoke to them: behold, these know what I said.

22 But when he had spoken this, one of the attendants that stood by struck Jesus with his open hand, saying: Answerest thou the chief priest thus?

23 Jesus answered him: If I have spoken evil, testify of the evil; but if well, why smitest thou me?

24 Annas then sent him, bound, to Caiaphas the chief priest.

25 But Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They then said to him: Art not thou also of his disciples? He denied and said: I am not.

26 One of the servants of the chief priest, being a relative of him whose ear Peter had cut off, says: Did I not see thee in the garden with him?

27 Again therefore Peter denied; and immediately a cock crew.

28 Then they lead Jesus from Caiaphas to the pretorium; and it was early morn. And they went not into the pretorium, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the passover.

29 Pilate therefore came forth to them and said: What accusation bring you against this man?

30 They answered and said to him: If this man had not done evil, we would not have delivered him to thee.

31 Pilate therefore said to them: Take you him and judge him according to your law. The Jews then said to him: It is not lawful for us to put any one to death:

32 that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke signifying by what kind of death he was about to die.

33 Then Pilate entered the pretorium again, and called Jesus and said to him: Art thou the King of the Jews?

34 Jesus answered: Sayest thou this of thyself, or did others tell thee of me?

35 Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy nation and the chief priests delivered thee to me: what hast thou done?

36 Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world my servants would fight, that might not be delivered to the Jews; but now my kingdom is not hence,

37 Pilate then said to him: Art thou not then a king? Jesus answered: Thou sayest, for I am a king. To this end was I born, and to this end have I come into the world, that I might testify to the truth: every one that is of the truth hears my voice.

38 Pilate says to him: What is truth? And having said this. he went out again to the Jews, and said to them: I find no fault in him.

39 But you have a custom that I release to you one at the passover: will you therefore that I release to you the King of the Jews?

40 They then cried out again, saying: Not this man, but Barabbas. But Barabbas was a robber. 

John 19

1 Pilate therefore then took Jesus and scourged him.

2 And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and threw a purple garment around him,

3 and came to him and said: Hail, King of the Jews; and they struck him with the open hand.

4 Pilate again came forth and said to them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault.

5 Jesus therefore came forth wearing the crown of thorns and purple garment. And he says to them: Behold the man.

6 Therefore when the chief priests and the attendants saw him, they cried out: Crucify, crucify. Pilate says to them: Take you him and crucify him; for I find no fault in him.

7 The Jews answered: We have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

8 Thereupon when Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid,

9 and went into the pretorium again, and said to Jesus: Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Pilate says to him: Speakest thou not to me? Knowest thou not that I have authority to release thee and authority to crucify thee?

11 Jesus answered: Thou couldst have had no authority against me, unless it had been given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me to thee has the greater sin.

12 After this Pilate sought to release him; but the Jews cried out, saying: If thou release this man, thou art not a friend of Caesar: every one that makes himself king speaks against Caesar.

13 Then Pilate, after hearing these words, brought Jesus forth, and sat on the judgment-seat in a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.

14 And it was the preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he says to the Jews: Behold your king.

15 They therefore cried out: Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate says to them: Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.

16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. They therefore took Jesus;

17 and bearing the cross for himself, he went forth to a place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha,

18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on this side and on that, but Jesus in the midst.

19 But Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross; and it was written: JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 Many of the Jews therefore read this title, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, in Greek.

21 The chief priests of the Jews then said to, Pilate: Write not: The king of the Jews, but that he said: I am the king of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written.

23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, for each soldier a part, and his coat. But the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore one to another: Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be. That the scripture might be fulfilled: They divided my garments among them, and on my raiment they cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

25 But there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother and his mother‘s sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 Jesus therefore seeing his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing by, says to his mother: Woman, behold thy son.

27 Then he says to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had been already finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, says: I thirst.

29 There lay a vessel full of vinegar: having therefore put a sponge full of vinegar on hyssop, they put it to his mouth.

30 When therefore he had received the vinegar, he said: It is finished; and having bowed his head, he gave up the spirit.

31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies might not remain on the cross during the sabbath, for that sabbath was a great day, besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

32 Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him;

33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw him already dead, they broke not his legs;

34 but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and immediately there came forth blood and water.

35 And he that saw it has testified, and his testimony is true, and he knows that he speaks what is true, that you also may believe.

36 For these things took place that the scripture might be fulfilled: A bone of him shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture says: They shall look on him whom they pierced.

38 But after these things Joseph, who was of Arimathea, 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 permission. They came therefore and took him away.

39 But Nicodemus also came, he that had come to him by night at the first, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.

40 They therefore took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the custom of the Jews to prepare for burial.

41 But there was, in the place where he had been crucified, a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher, in which no one had ever yet been laid.

42 There then because of the preparation of the Jews, for the sepulcher was near, laid they Jesus. 

John 20

1 But on the first of the week, Mary Magdalene comes to the sepulcher early, it being yet dark, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulcher.

2 She therefore runs and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them: They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him.

3 Thereupon Peter went forth and the other disciple, and came to the sepulcher.

4 But the two ran together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulcher;

5 and having stooped down, he saw the linen cloths lying: however he went not in.

6 Then comes Simon Peter following him; and he went into the sepulcher, and saw the linen cloths lying,

7 and the handkerchief, which was on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded up in a place by itself.

8 Therefore, the other disciple also that came first to the sepulcher then went in, and saw and believed;

9 for they not yet knew the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

10 The disciples then went away again to their homes.

11 But Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping. Then as she wept, she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher,

12 and saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

13 They say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She says to them: They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. Having said these things, she turned back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

15 Jesus says to her: Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She, supposing that he was the gardener, says to him: Sir, if thou hast borne him away, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

16 Jesus said to her: Mary. She turned and said to him in Hebrew: Rabboni, which is called, Teacher.

17 Jesus says to her: Touch me not; for I have not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren and say to them: I ascend to my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God.

18 Mary Magdalene comes and tells the disciples: I have seen the Lord; and that he had said these things to her.

19 When therefore evening had come on that day, the first of the week, and the doors had been closed where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace to you.

20 And having said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Thereupon the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

21 He then said to them again: Peace to you; as the Father has sent me, I also send you.

22 And having said this, he breathed on them and said to them: Receive the Holy Spirit.

23 Whosesoever sins you forgive, they are forgiven them; whosesoever sins you retain, they are retained.

24 But Thomas, who is called Didymus, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.

25 The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.

26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace to you.

27 Then he says to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands, and reach thy hand, and put it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing.

28 Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord and my God.

29 Jesus says to him: Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that, though not seeing, have yet believed.

30 Many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book;

31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing, you may have life in his name.  

John 21

1 After these things Jesus manifested himself to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias: and he manifested himself thus.

2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas who is called Didymus, and Nathaniel who was from Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples.

3 Simon Peter says to them: I go a fishing. They say to him: We also are going with thee. They went out and entered the ship, and on that night they caught nothing.

4 But the morning having now come, Jesus stood on the shore: the disciples, however, knew not that it was Jesus.

5 Jesus therefore says to them: Children, have you any thing to eat?

(beside bread). They answered him: No.

6 He says to them: Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and were no longer able to draw it because of the multitude of fishes.

7 That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter: It is the Lord. Simon Peter therefore, hearing that it was the Lord, girded on his upper garment, for he was naked,* and threw himself into the sea; * Had on only an undergarment

8 but the other disciples came with the ship (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits off), dragging the net of fishes.

9 Therefore when they had come to the land, they saw a fire of coals lying, and fish lying on it, and bread.

10 Jesus says to them: Bring of the fish that you have just now taken.

11 Simon Peter came up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty-three: and though there were so many, the net was not rent.

12 Jesus says to them: Come and breakfast. But no one of the disciples ventured to ask him: Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.

13 Jesus comes and takes the bread and gives it to them, and the fish in like manner.

14 This was now the third time on which Jesus had manifested himself to the disciples, after he had risen from the dead.

15 Therefore, when they had breakfasted, Jesus says to Simon Peter: Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me more than these? He says to him: Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He says to him: Feed my lambs.

16 He says to him again a second time: Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me? He says to him: Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He says to him: Be a shepherd to my sheep.

17 He says to him the third time: Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he had said to him the third time: Lovest thou me? And he says to him: Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. He says to him: Feed my sheep.

18 Verily, verily, I say to you, when thou wast young thou didst gird thyself and walk whither thou wouldst; but when thou shalt become old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldst not.

19 But this he spoke signifying by what kind of death he should glorify God. And having said this, he says to him: Follow me.

20 Peter turned and saw the disciple that Jesus loved following, who also reclined at supper on his breast and said: Lord, who is he that delivers thee up?

21 Peter therefore, seeing this man, says to Jesus: Lord, but what shall this man do?

22 Jesus says to him: If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.

23 Therefore went this saying, forth among the brethren, that that disciple should not die; and yet Jesus did not say to him: Thou shalt not die, but: If I will that he remain till I come.

24 This is the disciple that testifies of these things, and that wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true.
