John Chapter 1

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 1

1-5 In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was at the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6-9 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10-13 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16-18 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

19 And this is John's record when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

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

21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? That we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

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

24-25 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. And they asked him, and said unto him, Why do you baptize then if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?

26-27 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there stands One among you, whom you know not; It is He, who coming after I am preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

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

29-31 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

32-34 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

35-36 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

37-38 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

40-42 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

43-45 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

50-51 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? Thou shalt see greater things than these. And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John Chapter 2

John Chapter 2

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 2

1-3 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.

5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

6-10 And there were six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bear it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: but the servants which drew the water knew; the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

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

12 After this, he went down to Capernaum, his mother, his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

13-17 And the Jews' Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:, And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of your house has eaten me up.

18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

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

20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

21-22 But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

23-25 Now, when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, many believed in his name on the feast day, when they saw the miracles he did. But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, and needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

John Chapter 3

John Chapter 3

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 3

1-2 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

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

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb and be born?

5-8 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but can not tell whence it comes, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

10-17 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen, and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so, must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world might be saved through him.

18-21 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil for everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he that does the truth comes to light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

22-24 After these things, Jesus came to his disciples into the land of Judaea, and there he tarried with them and baptized. And John was also baptizing in Aenon near Salim because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. For John was not yet cast into prison.

25-26 Then arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

27-36 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy, therefore, is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. He that cometh from above is above all: he is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: He believes that not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John Chapter 4

John Chapter 4

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 4

1-4 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John. However, Jesus himself baptized not his disciples, He left Judaea and departed again into Galilee. And he must need to go through Samaria.

5-6 Then he came to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob's well was there. Therefore, being wearied with his journey, Jesus sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

7-8 There came a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy food.

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

11-12 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

13-14 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

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

16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

17-18 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

19-20 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21-24 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he has come, he will tell us everything.

26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

27 And upon this came to his disciples, and marveled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? Or, Why talkest thou with her?

28-30 The woman then left her waterpot and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me everything that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city and came unto him.

31 In the meanwhile, his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

34-38 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me and finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor: other men labored, and ye are entered into their labors.

39-41 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in him for the woman's saying, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. So when the Samaritans have come unto him, they beseeched him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. And many more believed because of his own word;

42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

43-45 Now after two days he departed thence and went into Galilee. For Jesus, himself testified, that a prophet hath no honor in his own country. When he came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

46-48 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him and beseeched him that he would come down and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.

50-51 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.

52-53 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.

54 This is again the second miracle that he did when he came out of Judaea into Galilee.

John Chapter 5

John Chapter 5

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 5

1-6 After this, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. There is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8-10 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed and walk. The man was immediately made whole, took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. The Jews, therefore, said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

12-14 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. Afterward, Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

16-17 Therefore, the Jews did persecute Jesus and sought to slay him because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

18-23 Therefore, the Jews sought more to kill him because he not only had broken the sabbath but also said that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that himself doeth: and he will show him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who has sent Him.

24-30 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

31-40 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. Another that bears witness of me, and I know that the witness he witnesses is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bares witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

41-47 I receive not honor from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I have come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that comes from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 6

1-3 After these things, Jesus went over Galilee's sea, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a great multitude followed him because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

4-6 And the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. When Jesus then lifted up his eyes and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

8-9 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

10-14 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore, they gathered them together and filled twelve baskets with the five barley loaves' fragments, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. When they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, those men said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

15 When Jesus, therefore, perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

16-21 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus had not come to them. And the sea arose because of a great wind that blew. So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. They willingly received him into the ship: immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

22-25 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there were no other boats there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone; However, there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks: When the people, therefore, saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus. And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

26-27 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

30-31 They said therefore unto him, What sign showest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? What dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

32-33 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

35-40 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

41-42 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

43-51 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man, therefore, that hath heard and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

52 The Jews, therefore, strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

53-58 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live forever.

59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it?

61-65 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? The spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But some of you believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it was given unto him of my Father.

66-67 From that time, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

68-69 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

70-71 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for it was he that would betray him, being one of the twelve.

1-5 After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee: for he did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. Now the Jews' Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. Therefore His brothers said to him, Depart from here, and go to Judaea, that your disciples may also see the works you do. For there is no one that does anything in secret when he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world. For even His brothers did not believe in Him.

6-9 Then Jesus said to them, My time is not yet come: but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that the works thereof are evil. You go up to this feast: I am not going to this feast just yet: for my time has not yet fully come. When he had said these things to them, he stayed in Galilee.

10-13 But when his brothers were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. Then the Jews sought Him at the feast and said, Where is He? And there was much murmuring among the people concerning Him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, No, on the contrary, He deceives the people. However, no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Jews.

14-15 Now, during the middle of the feast, Jesus went up to the temple and taught. And the Jews marveled, saying, How does this man know letters, having never studied?

16-19 Jesus answered them and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself. He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: but He that seeks The glory that sent Him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him. Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why go you about to kill me?

20 The people answered and said, You have a demon: who is seeking to kill you?

21-24 Jesus answered and said to them, I have done one work, and you all marvel. Therefore, Moses gave you circumcision, not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers, and you on the Sabbath day circumcise a man. If a man on the Sabbath day receives circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at me, because I have made a man completely whole on the Sabbath Day? Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

25-27 Then some of them from Jerusalem said, Is not this He, whom they seek to kill? But, lo, He speaks boldly, and they say nothing to Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? However, we know this man from, but no one knows where he is from when Christ comes.

28-29 Then Jesus cried out in the temple as He taught, saying, You both know me, and you know where I am from: and I have not come of Myself, but He that sent Me is true, whom you do not know. But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent me.

30-31 Then they sought to take him: but no one laid hands on Him, because His hour has not yet come. Many people believed in him and said When Christ comes, will he do more miracles than these men have done?

32-34 The Pharisees heard the people murmuring these things concerning Him, and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him. Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while I am with you, and then I go to Him who sent me. You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, there you cannot come.

35-36 Then the Jews said among themselves, Where will He go, that we shall not find him? Will He go to the dispersed among the Gentiles and teach the Gentiles? What manner of saying is this that He said, You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, there you cannot come?

37-39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come to me and drink. As the scripture has said, he that believes on me out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this He spoke of the Spirit, which they that believe on him would receive: for the Holy Ghost had not yet been given; because Jesus was not yet glorified.

40-44 Therefore, when they heard this saying, many of the people said, Of a truth, this is the Prophet. Others said This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ, come out of Galilee? Has not the scripture said, That Christ comes of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? So there was a division among the people because of Him. And some of them would have taken him, but no man laid hands on Him.

45 Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees; they said to them, Why have you not brought him?

46 The officers answered, Never has a man spoke like this man.

47-49 Then the Pharisees answered them, Are you also deceived? Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? But these people who do not know the law are cursed.

50-51 Nicodemus said to them, he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them, Does our law judge a man, before it hears him, and know what he is doing?

52 They answered and said to him, Are you also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee no prophet arises.

53 And every man went to his own house.

John Chapter 8

John Chapter 8

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 8

1 Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2-6 And early in the morning, he came into the temple again, and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, they said to him, Master, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned: but what do you say? This they said, testing Him, that they might have something to accuse him of. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7-10 So when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up and said to them, He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even to the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted Himself up and saw none but the woman, he said to her, Woman, where are your accusers? has no man condemned you?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.

12 Then Jesus spoke again 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, You bear witness of yourself; your record is not true.

14-18 Jesus answered and said to them, Though I bear witness of myself, my record is true: for I know where I came from, and where I am going, but you cannot tell where I came from, and where I go. You judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent me. It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bears witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.

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

20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour had not yet come.

21 Then repeated Jesus to them, I go my way, and you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: where I go, you cannot come.

22 Then the Jews said, Will he kill himself? Because he said, Where I go, you cannot come.

23-24 And he said to them, You are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world. Therefore I said to you, that you will die in your sins: for if you do not believe that I am he, you will die in your sins.

25-26 Then said they to him, Who are you? And Jesus said to them, Even the same that I said to you from the beginning. I have many things to say and judge concerning you: but he that sent me is true, and I speak to the world those things I have heard from him.

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

28-30 Then said Jesus to them, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you shall know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I always do those things that please him. As he spoke these words, many believed in him.

31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews who believed in him, If you continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

33 They answered him, We are Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how do you say, You shall be made free?

34-36 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant does not abide in the house for ever: but the Son abides forever. Therefore if the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

37-38 I know that you are Abraham's seed, but you seek to kill me because my word has no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: You do that which you have seen with your father.

39-41 They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: Abraham did not do this. You do the deeds of your father. Then they said to him, We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

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

43 Why do you not understand my speech? Because you do not listen to 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 does not abide by the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own situation: for he is a liar and the father of it.

45-46 And because I tell you the truth, you do not believe me. Which of you convicts me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

47 He that is of God hears God's words: you, therefore, do not hear them, because you are not of God.

48 Then the Jews answered and said to him, Do we not rightly say that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?

49-51 Jesus answered, I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me. And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeks and judges. Verily, I say to you, If a man keeps my saying, he shall never see death.

52-53 Then the Jews said to him, Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you say, If a man keeps my saying, he shall never taste of death. Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead: whom do you make yourself out to be?

54-56 Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom you say, that he is your God: Yet you have not known him, but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like you: but I know him, and keep his saying. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it and was glad.

57 Then the Jews said to him, You art not even fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?

58 Jesus said to them, Verily, I say to you, Before Abraham was, I am.

59 Then they took up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

John Chapter 9

John Chapter 9

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 9

1-2 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3-5 Jesus answered, Neither has this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

6-7 When he had spoken this, he spits on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, which is by translated, Sent. He went his way and washed, and came back seeing.

8 Therefore the neighbors, and they who previously had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

10 Therefore they said to him, How were your eyes opened?

11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

12 Then they said to him, Where is he? He said I do not know.

13-15 They brought him to the Pharisees who previously was blind. And it was the Sabbath Day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said to them, He put clay on mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

16 Therefore some of the Pharisees said, This man is not of God, because he does not keep the Sabbath Day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

17 They say to the blind man again, What do you say of him, that he has opened your eyes? He said He is a prophet.

18-19 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? how then does he now see?

20-23 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son and that he was born blind: But by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he can speak for himself. These words his parents spoke, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had already agreed, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. Therefore his parents said, He is of age; ask him.

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

25 He answered and said, Whether he is a sinner or not, I do not know: one thing I do know, that, though I was blind, now I see.

26 Then said they to him again, What did he to you? how did he open your eyes?

27 He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not listen: Would you like to hear it again? will you also be his disciples?

28-29 Then they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple, but we are Moses' disciples. We know that God spoke to Moses: as for this fellow, we do not know where he is from.

30-33 The man answered and said to them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that you do not know where he is from, and yet he has opened my eyes. Now we know that God does not hear sinners: but if any man is a worshipper of God, and does his will, he hears him. Since the world began it has been unheard of that any man opened the eyes of someone born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

34 They answered and said to him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said to him, Do you believe in the Son of God?

36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe in him?

37 And Jesus said to him, You have both seen him, and it is he that talks with you.

38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

39 And Jesus said, For judgment, I have come into this world, that they which see might not see; and that they which see might be made blind.

40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said to him, Are we also blind?

41 Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin: but now you say, We see; therefore your sin remains.

John Chapter 10

John Chapter 10

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 10

1-6 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that enters not by the door to the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him, the porter opens, and the sheep hear his voice: and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. And when he put forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This parable Jesus spoke to them: but they did not understand what things they were which he spoke to them.

7-10 Then Jesus said to them again, Verily, verily, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.

11-16 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. The hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knows me, even so, I know the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them I must also bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

17-18 Therefore my Father does love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have the power to lay it down, and I have the power to take it again. This commandment I have received of my Father.

19-20 Therefore there was a division again among the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said, He has a demon, and is mad; why do you listen to him?

21 Others said these are not the words of him that have a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?

22-24 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said to him, How long do you make us doubt? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.

25-30 Jesus answered them, I told you, and you did not believe: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give to them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one.

31-32 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works I have I shown you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me?

33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we do not stone you; but for blasphemy; and because that you, being a man, make yourself God.

34-39 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; You say of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, You blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, do not believe me. But if I do, though you do not believe me, believe the works: that you may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand.

40-42 And went away again beyond Jordan to the place where John at first baptized, and there he stayed. And many came to him, and said, John, did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. And many believed in him there.

John Chapter 11

John Chapter 11

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 11

1-3 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. Therefore his sisters sent for him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom you love is sick.

4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

5-7 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. Therefore when he had heard that he was sick, he stayed two more days in the same place where he was. Then after that, he said to his disciples, Let us go to Judaea again.

8 His disciples said to him, Rabbi, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and are you going there again?

9-11 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him. These things he said: and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12-13 Then his disciples said, Lord if he sleeps, he shall do well. However, Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14-15 Then Jesus said to them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless, let us go to him.

16 Then Thomas, which is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17-19 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had already been in the grave four days. Now Bethany was near to Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20-22 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. Then Martha said to Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know, that even now, whatever you will ask of God, God will give it to you.

23 Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again.

24 Martha said to him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25-26 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet he shall live: And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. You believe this?

27 She said to him, Yea, Lord: I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who would come into the world.

28-31 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calls for you. As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came to him. Now Jesus had not yet come to the town but was in that place where Martha met him. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goes to the grave to weep there.

32 Then when Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying to him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

33-34 Therefore when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Then the Jews said, Behold how he loved him!

37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38-39 Then Jesus again groaning in himself came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him, Lord, by this time he stinks: for he has been dead four days.

40-44 Jesus said to her, Did I not say to you, that, if you would believe, you would see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank you that you have heard me. And I know that you always hear me: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that you have sent me. And when he had spoken this, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he who was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said to them, Loose him, and let him go.

45-48 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed in him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees and told them what things Jesus had done. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, What shall we do? for this man does many miracles. If we let him alone like this, everyone will believe in him: and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.

49-52 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said to them, You know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people so that the whole nation will not perish. And this he spoke not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that he should also gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

53-54 Then from that day forward they took counsel together to put him to death. Jesus, therefore, walked no longer openly among the Jews; but went from there into the country near the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

55-57 And the Passover of the Jews was near at hand: and many went out from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. Then they sought Jesus, and spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What do you think, that he will not come to the feast? Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he was, he should report it, that they might take him.

John Chapter 12

John Chapter 12

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 12

1-3 Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper, and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.

4-6 Then one of his disciples said, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which would betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief and had the money bag, and he would take what was put in it.

7-8 Then Jesus said, Let her alone: she kept this for the day of my burial. For the poor, you always have with you, but me you do not have always.

9-11 Now a great many Jews knew that he was there: and they came not only for Jesus' sake but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. But the chief priests also conspired to put Lazarus to death; Because on account of him, many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.

12-13 On the next day many people that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that comes in the name of the Lord.

14-15 And Jesus, when he had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written, Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, your King comes, sitting on a donkey's colt.

16 These things his disciples did not understand at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, they then remembered that these things were written of him and that they had done these things to him.

17-19 Therefore the people that were with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave and raised him from the dead, bore witness. For this reason, the people also met him, because they heard that he had done this miracle. Therefore the Pharisees said among themselves, You see how you are prevailing over nothing? behold, the world has gone after him.

20-21 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, Sir, we would like to see Jesus.

22 Philip came and told Andrew: and in turn, Andrew and Philip told Jesus.

23-26 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour has come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say to you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it for life eternal. If any man serves me, let him follow me; and where I am, there My servant shall be also: if any man serves me, him my Father will honor.

27-28 Now my soul is troubled; and what shall I say? Father, deliver me from this hour: but for this cause, I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name. Then there came a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

29 The people, therefore, that stood by and heard it said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him.

30-33 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to me. This he said, signifying what death he would die.

34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abides for ever: and how can you say, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

35-36 Then Jesus said to them, A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness comes upon you: for he who walks in darkness does not know where he goes. While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and hid from them.

37-38 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they did not believe in him: That the words of the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

39-41 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again, He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. These things Isaiah said when he saw his glory and spoke of him.

42-43 Nevertheless among the chief rulers many believed in him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

44-50 Jesus cried and said, He that believes in me, believes not on me, but on him who sent me. And he that sees me sees him who sent me. I have come as a light to the world, that whosoever believes in me should not abide in darkness. And if anyone hears my words, and does not believe, I do not judge him: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects me, and does not receive my words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him on the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: Therefore whatever I speak, even as the Father said to me, so I speak.

John Chapter 13

John Chapter 13

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 13

1 Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour has come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2-6 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands and that he was come from God, and went to God; He rose from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then he came to Simon Peter: and Peter said to him, Lord, do you wash my feet?

7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

8 Peter said to him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I do not wash you, you have no part with me.

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

10-11 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and you are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore he said, You are not all clean.

12-17 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? You call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say to you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

18-20 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against me. Now I tell you before it comes, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. Verily, verily, I say to you, He that receives whomsoever I send receives Me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me.

21-22 When Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you shall betray me. Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spoke.

23-24 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter, therefore, beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spoke.

25 He then lying on Jesus' breast said to him, Lord, who is it?

26-29 Jesus answered, It is he, to whom I shall give a sop when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, What you do, do quickly. Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said to him, Buy those things that we have need of for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

30 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.

31-35 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him. Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek me: and as I said to the Jews, Where I go, you cannot come; so now I say to you. A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples if you have love one to another.

36 Simon Peter said to him, Lord, where are you going? Jesus answered him, Where I go, you can not follow me now, but you shall follow me afterward.

37 Peter said to him, Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake.

38 Jesus answered him, Will you lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say to you, The cock shall not crow, till you have denied me three times.

John Chapter 14

John Chapter 14

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 14

1-4 Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.

5 Thomas said to him, Lord, we do not know where you go; and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, except through me.

7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also: and from now on you know him, and have seen him.

8 Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficient for us.

9-11 Jesus said to him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet you have not known me, Philip? he who has seen me has seen the Father; so how can you say then, Show us the Father? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? the words that I speak to you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwells in me, he does the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

12-14 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to my Father. And whatever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.

15-18 If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see him, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19-21 Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also. At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. He that has My commandments and keeps them, it is he that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

23-24 Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our abode with him. He that does not love me does not keep my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

25-28 These things I have spoken to you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You have heard how I said to you, I go away, and come again to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go to the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

29-31 And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that, when it comes to pass, you might believe. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world comes, and has nothing in me. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so, I do. Arise, let us go hence.

John Chapter 15

John Chapter 15

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 15

1-4 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.

5-8 I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing. If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you. Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples.

9-10 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: you continue in my love. If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

11-17 These things have I spoken to you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do whatever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known to you. You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that you love one another.

18-25 If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do to you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have any sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this came to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

26-27 But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me: And you also shall bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.

John Chapter 16

John Chapter 16

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 16

1-4 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time will come, that whoever kills you will think that he does God service. And these things will they do to you because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not to you at the beginning, because I was with you.

5-11 But now I go my way to him that sent me, and none of you asks, Where are you going? But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he has come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12-15 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it to you. All things that the Father has are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it to you.

16 A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me because I go to the Father.

17-18 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he said to us, A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and because I go to the Father? They said, therefore, What is this that he said, A little while? we cannot tell what he is saying.

19-22 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? Verily, verily, I say to you, That you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow because her hour has come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for the joy that a man is born into the world. And you now, therefore, have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man takes from you.

23-24 And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say to you, Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.

25-28 These things have I spoken to you in proverbs: but the time is coming when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father. At that day you shall ask in my name: and I say not to you, that I will pray to the Father for you: For the Father, himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came from God. I came forth from the Father and came into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

29-30 His disciples said to him, Lo, now you speak plainly, and speak no proverb. Now we are sure that you know all things, and have no need that anyone should question you: by this, we believe that you came forth from God.

31-33 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? Behold, the hour comes, yea has now come, that you shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John Chapter 17

John Chapter 17

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 17

1-5 These words Jesus spoke, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you: As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do. And now, O Father, glorify me with yourself with the glory which I had with you before the world was.

6-8 I have manifested your name to the men which you gave me out of the world: they were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given me are of yours. For I have given to them the words which you gave me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came from you, and they have believed that you did send me.

9-19 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are yours. And all mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through Your own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so, have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes, I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20-23 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and hast loved them, as you have loved me.

24-26 Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. And I have declared to them your name and will declare it: that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.

John Chapter 18

John Chapter 18

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 18

1-4 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples. Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said to them, Whom do you seek?

5-6 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

7 Then asked he them again, Who do you seek? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

8-9 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which you gave me I have lost none.

10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

11 Then Jesus said to Peter, Put away your sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

12-14 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, and led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

15-17 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known to the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. Then the damsel that kept the door said to Peter, Are you not also one of this man's disciples? He said I am not.

18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

20-21 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. Why do you ask me? ask them which heard me, what I have said to them: behold, they know what I said.

22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?

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

24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.

26-27 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

28-29 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves did not go into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the Passover. Pilate then went out to them, and said, What accusation do you bring against this man?

30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

31-32 Then said Pilate unto them, Take you him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews, therefore, said to him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying what death he should die.

33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

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

35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants' fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

37 Pilate, therefore, said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the Passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

John Chapter 19

John Chapter 19

New Testament / Gospel of John / Chapter 19

1-3 Then Pilate, therefore, took Jesus and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

4 Pilate, therefore, went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

5 Then Jesus came forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith to them, You take Him and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him.

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

8-9 When Pilate, therefore, heard that saying, he was the more afraid; And went again into the Praetorium, and said to Jesus, Where are you from? But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then Pilate said to him, You won't speak to me? know you not that I have the power to crucify you, and the power to release you?

11 Jesus answered, You could have no power at all against me, except it were given to you from above: therefore he that delivered me to you has the greater sin.

12 And from then on Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If you let this man go, you are not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaks against Caesar.

13-14 Therefore When Pilate heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth and sat down in the judgment seat in a place called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he said to the Jews, Behold your King!

15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered We have no king but Caesar.

16 Then he delivered him therefore to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away.

17-19 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.

20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

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

23-24 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture, they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

25-27 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus, therefore, saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then he said to the disciple, Behold your mother! And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.

28-30 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus, therefore, had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31-37 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath Day, for that Sabbath Day was a high day, the Jews asked Pilate to break their legs, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break His legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and immediately blood and water came out. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knows that what he said is true, that you might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture says, They shall look on Him whom they pierced.

38-42 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, beseeched Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred-pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where he was crucified, there was a garden; and in the garden, a new sepulcher wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they, Jesus, therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulcher was nigh at hand.
