Verily, verily, I say to you, 'He who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.'
But he who 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 puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.
And a stranger, they will not follow, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."
Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they did not understand what things they were which he spoke to them.
Then Jesus said to them again, "Verily, verily, I say to you, 'I am the door of the sheep.'
All who 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 will be saved, and will go in and out, and find pasture.
The thief does not come but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy, I have come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.
But he who is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose sheep are not his own, 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 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold, I must bring them also, and they will hear my voice; and there will be one fold, [and] one shepherd.
Therefore my Father loves 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 power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment, I have received from my Father."
There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
And many of them said, "He has a devil, *15:6, *44:14, *51:52, *68:51 and is mad; why do you hear him?"
Others said, "These are not the words of him who has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?"
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 the Jews came round about him, and said to him, "How long do you make us to doubt? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly."
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 them eternal life; and they will never perish, neither will any [man] pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, who gave [them] 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."
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Jesus answered them, "Many good works have I shown you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me?"
The Jews answered him, saying, "We do not stone you for a good work; but for blasphemy; and because you, being a man, make yourself God."
Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, I said, 'You are gods?' *Psalms 82:6
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 do 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,
And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John baptized at first; and there he abode.
And many resorted to him, and said, "John did no miracle, but all things that John spoke of this man were true."
And many believed on him there.
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 master with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
Therefore his sisters sent to him, saying, "Master, behold, he whom you love is sick."
When Jesus heard [that], he said, "This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that the son of God might be glorified thereby."
Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
Then after that, he says to [his] disciples, "Let us go into Judaea again."
[His] disciples say to him, "Master, the Jews of late sought to stone you; and you go there again?"
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 says to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep."
Then his disciples said, "Master, if he sleeps, he will do well."
Howbeit Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that he had spoken of taking rest in sleep.
Then Jesus said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.
And I am glad for your sake that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go to him."
Then Thomas said, who is called Didymus, to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him."
Then when Jesus came, he found that he had [lain] in the grave for four days already.
Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.
And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
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, "Master, 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] you."
Jesus says to her, "Your brother will rise again."
Martha says to him, "I know that he will rise again in the Resurrection at the Last Day."
Jesus said to her, "I am the Resurrection, and the life, he who believes in me, though he were dead, yet he will live.
And whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
She says to him, "Indeed, master, I believe that you are the Messiah, the son of God, who should come into the world."
And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, "The master has come, and calls for you."
As soon as she heard [that], she arose quickly, and came to him.
Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.
The Jews then, who 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."
Then when Mary had come where Jesus was and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying to him, "Master, if you had been here, my brother would not have died."
When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
And said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Master, come and see."
Then the Jews said, "Behold how he loved him!"
And some of them said, "Could this man, who opened the eyes of the blind, not have caused that even this man should not have died?"
Jesus therefore, again groaning in himself, comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, says to him, "Master, by this time he stinks, for he has been [dead] for four days."
Jesus says to her, "Did I not say to you, that, if you would believe, you should 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 knew that You hear me always, but because of the people who stand by, I said [it], that they may believe that You have sent me."
And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth."
And he who was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus says to them, "Loose him, and let him go." *5:110
Then many of the Jews who came to Mary and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on 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 do we do? For this man does many miracles.
If we thus leave him alone, all [men] will believe on him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation."
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, and that the whole nation does not perish."
And he spoke this not of himself, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
And not for that nation only, but that he should also gather together in one, the children of God, who were scattered abroad.
Then from that day forth they took counsel together to put him to death.
Jesus therefore no longer walked openly among the Jews; but went from there to a country near the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
And the Jews' passover was near at hand, and many went out of 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 show [it], that they might take him.
Then Jesus, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, who had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
There they made him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with him.
Then Mary took 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.
Then one of his disciples says, Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], who should betray him,
Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
He said this, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bore what was put therein.
Then Jesus said, "Leave her alone, she has kept this against the day of my burying.
For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have me."
Many people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there, and they did not come for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
But the chief priests consulted that they might also put Lazarus to death;
Because by reason of him, many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
On the next day many people who 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 who comes in the name of the Lord."
And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
Do not fear, daughter of Zion, behold, your king comes, sitting on an ass's colt. *Zechariah 9:9
His disciples did not understand this at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him, and [that] they had done these things to him.
The people therefore, who were with him, when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bore record.
For this cause the people also met him, for they heard that he had done this miracle.
The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, "Do you perceive how you prevail nothing? Behold, the world has gone after him."
And there were certain Greeks among those who came up to prostrate at the feast.
The same came therefore to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, "Sir, we would see Jesus."
Philip comes and tells Andrew, and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
And Jesus answered them, saying, "The hour has come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
Verily, verily, I say to you, 'Unless a corn of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone, but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit.'
He who loves his life will lose it; and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. *~9:111
If any man serves me, let him follow me; and where I am, there will also be my servant, if any man serves me, him will [my] Father honor.
Now my soul is troubled; and what will I say? Father, save 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."
The people therefore who stood by and heard [it], said that it thundered, others said, "An angel spoke to him."
Jesus answered and said, "This voice did not come because of me, but for your sake.
Now is the judgment of this world, now the prince of this world will be cast out.
And if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all [men] to me."
He said this, signifying what death he should die.
The people answered him, "We have heard out of the law that the Messiah abides forever, and how do you say, 'The Son of man must be lifted up?' Who is this Son of man?"
Then Jesus said to them, "Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light, unless 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." Jesus spoke these things and departed, and hid himself from them.
But though he had done so many miracles before them, they did not believe on him.
That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, "Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" *Isaiah 53:1
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, *2:7, *47:23 and be converted, and I should heal them." *Isaiah 6:10
Isaiah said these things, when he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
Nevertheless many among the chief rulers also believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess [him], unless they should be put out of the synagogue,
For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Jesus cried and said, "He who believes in me, does not believe in me, but on Him who sent me. *48:10
And he who sees me, sees Him who sent me.
I have come, a light into the world, that whoever believes in me should not abide in darkness.
And if any man hears my words, and does not believe, I do not judge him, for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
He who rejects me, and does not receive my words, has One who judges him, the word that I have spoken, the same will judge him in 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, whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said to me, so I speak." *21:27
Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
And as supper 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 had come from God, and went to God;
He rises from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
After that he pours water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe [them] with the towel which he was girded.
Then he comes to Simon Peter, and Peter says to him, "Master, do you wash my feet?"
Jesus answered and said to him, "What I do, you do not know now; but you will know hereafter."
Peter says to him, "You will never wash my feet." Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with me."
Simon Peter says to him, "Master, not my feet only, but also [my] hands and [my] head."
Jesus says to him, "He who is washed does not need to wash except [his] feet, but is clean everywhere, and you are clean, but not all."
For he knew who should betray him; therefore he said, "You are not all clean."
So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
You call me teacher and master, and you say well; for [so] I am.
If I then, [your] teacher and master, have washed your feet; you also need 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 who is sent greater than He who sent him.'
If you know these things, you are happy if you do them.
I do not speak of all of you, I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.' *Psalms 41:9
Now I tell you before it comes, that, when it has come to pass, you may believe that I am [him].
Verily, verily, I say to you, 'He who receives whomever I send, receives me; and he who receives me, receives Him who sent me.'"
When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, "Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will betray me."
Then the disciples looked on one another, doubting of whom he spoke.
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.
He then, lying on Jesus' breast, says to him, "Master, who is it?"
Jesus answered, "He it is, to whom I will 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, "That you do, do quickly."
Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spoke this to 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 against the feast;" or, that he should give something to the poor.
He then, having received the sop, went out immediately, and it was night.
Therefore, when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in Himself, and will straightway glorify him.
Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I go, you cannot come;' so now I say to you.
I give to you a new commandment, 'That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.'
By this all [men] will know that you are my disciples, if you have love to one another."
Simon Peter said to him, "Master, where do you go?" Jesus answered him, "Where I go, you cannot follow me now; but you will follow me afterwards."
Peter said to him, "Master, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake."
Jesus answered him, "Will you lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say to you, 'The cock will not crow, until you have denied me three times.'
Do not let your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions, *25:75, *29:58, *34:37, *39:20 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 to myself; that where I am, [there] you may also be.
And where I go you know, and the way you know."
Thomas says to him, "Master, we do not know where you go; and how can we know the way?"
Jesus says to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, but by me.
If you had known me, you should have known my Father also, and from henceforth you know Him, and have seen Him."
Philip says to him, "Master, show us the Father, and it suffices us."
Jesus says 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; and how do 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 do not speak of myself, but the Father who 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.
Verily, verily, I say to you, 'He who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater [works] than these will he do; because I go to my Father.
And whatever you will ask in my name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son [of man].
If you will ask anything in my name, I will do [it].
If you love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, *3:193, *46:31 - 32, *61:6 that he may abide with you forever;
[Even] the Spirit of Truth; *16:102, *26:193 - 197 whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see him, neither knows him, but you know him; for he dwells with you, and will be in you.
I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you.
Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me, because I live, you will live also.
At that day you will know that I [am] in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
He who has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is who loves me, and he who loves me will be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."
Judas says to him, not Iscariot, "Master, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?"
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 who does not love, does not keep my sayings, and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.
These things have I spoken to you, being [still] present with you.
But the Comforter, *3:193, *46:31 - 32 [which is] the Holy Spirit, *16:102, *26:193 - 197 whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you. *61:6
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not as the world gives, I give to you. Do not let 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.
And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that, when it has come 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 from here.
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, unless it abides in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.
I am the vine, you [are] the branches, he who abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit, for without me, you can do nothing.
If a man does not abide 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 will ask what you will, and it will be done to you.
Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so will you be my disciples.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you, continue in my love.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
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.'
No man has greater love 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 do not call you servants; for the servant does not know 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 will ask of the Father in my name, He may give it to you.
These things I command you, that you love one another.
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 do not know Him who sent me.
If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no cloak for their sin.
He who hates me, hates my Father also.
If I had not done the works which no other man has done among them, they would not have had sin, but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
But [this comes to pass], that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, 'They hated me without a cause.' *Psalms 35:19, *Psalms 69:4, *Psalms 109:3
But when the Comforter *3:193, *46:31 - 32 has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of Truth, *16:102, *26:193 - 197 which proceeds from the Father, he will testify of me. *61:6
And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.
These things have I spoken to you, that you should not be offended.
They will put you out of the synagogues, indeed, the time comes, 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 I have told you these things, that when the time will come, you may remember that I told you of them. And I did not say these things to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
But now I go my way to Him who sent me; and none of you asks me, 'Where do you go?'
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 *3:193, *46:31 - 32 will not come to you; but if I depart, *5:19 I will send him to you.
And when he has come, he will expose the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.
Of sin, because they do not believe in me; *2:87 - 88
Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and you see me no more; *4:157 - 158
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. *7:18, *38:84 - 85
I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, *16:102, *26:193 - 197 has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak of himself; but whatever he will hear, [that] he will speak, *53:2 - 5 and he will show you things to come. *61:6
He will glorify me, for he will receive of mine, and will show [it] to you.
All things that the Father has are mine, therefore I said, that he will take of mine, and will show [it] to you.
A little while, and you will not see me, and again, a little while, and you will see me, because I go to the Father."
Then [some] of his disciples said among themselves, "What is this that he says to us, 'A little while, and you will not see me, and again, a little while, and you will see me,' and, 'Because I go to the Father?'"
They said therefore, "What is this that he says, 'A little while?' We cannot tell what he says."
Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said to them, "Do you inquire among yourselves that I said, 'A little while, and you will not see me, and again, a little while, and you will see me?'
Verily, verily, I say to you, 'That you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice, and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.'
A woman when she is in travail has sorrow, because her hour has come, but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
And you now therefore have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and your joy, no man takes from you.
And in that day you will ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say to you, 'Whatever you will ask the Father in my name, He will give [it] you.'
Now you have asked nothing in my name, ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
These things have I spoken to you in proverbs, but the time comes, when I will no longer speak to you in proverbs, but I will show you plainly of the Father.
At that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you, that I will pray the Father for you,
For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
I came forth from the Father, and have come into the world, again, I leave the world, and go to the Father."
His disciples said to him, "Lo, now speak you plainly, and speak no proverb.
Now are we sure that you know all things, and do not need that any man should ask you, by this we believe that you came forth from God."
Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe?
Behold, the hour comes, indeed, has now come, that you will be scattered, every man to his own, and will 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 will have tribulation, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
Jesus spoke these words, 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 You, the only true God, and Jesus the Messiah, 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 Your own self with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave me out of the world, they were Yours, and You gave them to me; and they have kept Your word.
Now they have known that all things whatever You have given me are of You.
For I have given to them the words which You gave me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from You, and they have believed that You did send me.
I pray for them, I pray not for the world, but for those whom You have 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 longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep those whom You have given me through Your own name, that they may be one, as we [are].
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name, those whom You gave me, I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
And now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them through Your truth, Your word is truth.
As You have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
And for their sake I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Neither do I pray for these alone, but for those also who will believe in 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 You have sent me.
And the glory which You gave 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 have loved them, as You have loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom You have given me, are with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which You have given me, for You loved me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world has not known You, 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 which You have loved me may be in them, and I in them."
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where there was a garden, into which he entered, and his disciples.
And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place, for Jesus often resorted there with his disciples.
Judas then, having received a band [of men] and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, comes there 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?"
They answered him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus says to them, "I am [him]." And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them. *58:14
As soon then as he had said to them, "I am [him]," they went back, and fell to the ground.
Then he asked them again, "Whom do you seek?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
Jesus answered, "I have told you that I am [him], if you therefore seek me, let these go their way."
That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spoke, "Of those whom You gave me, I have lost none."
Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
Then Jesus said to Peter, "Put up your sword into the sheath, the cup which my Father has given me, will I not drink it?"
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, who was the high priest that same year.
Now Caiaphas was the one who gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and [so did] another disciple, that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
But Peter stood at the door outside. Then that other disciple went out, who was known to the high priest, and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought in Peter.
Then the damsel who kept the door says to Peter, "Are you not also [one] of this man's disciples?" He says, "I am not."
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.
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews always resort; and in secret, I have said nothing.
Why do you ask me? Ask those who heard me, what I have said to them, behold, they know what I said."
And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers who stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Do you answer the high priest so?"
Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil, but if well, why do you smite me?"
Now Annas had sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They therefore said to him, "Are you not also [one] of his disciples?" He denied [it], and said, "I am not."
One of the servants of the high priest, being [his] kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, says, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?"
Peter then denied again, and immediately the cock crew.
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, unless 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?"
They answered and said to him, "If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up to you."
Then Pilate said to them, "Take 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.
Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said to him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
Jesus answered him, "Do you say this thing of yourself, or did others tell it to you of me?"
Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you to me, what have you done?"
Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world, if my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now my kingdom is not from here."
Pilate therefore said to him, "Are you a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth, hears my voice."
Pilate says to him, "What is truth?" And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and says to them, "I find no fault in him [at all].
But you have a custom, that I should release to you one at the passover, do you will therefore that I release to you the king of the Jews?"
Then they all cried again, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas." Now Barabbas was a robber.
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 a purple robe on him,
And said, "Hail, king of the Jews!" And they struck him with their hands.
Pilate therefore went forth again, and says to them, "Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault in him."
Then Jesus came forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] says to them, "Behold the man!"
When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, "Crucify [him], crucify [him]." Pilate says to them, "Take him, and crucify [him], for I find no fault in him."
The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and by our law he needs to die, because he made himself the son of God."
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was more afraid;
And went again into the judgment hall, and says to Jesus, "From where are you?" But Jesus gave him no answer.
Then Pilate says to him, "Do you not speak to me? Do you not know that I have power to crucify you, and have power to release you?"
Jesus answered, "You could have no power [at all] against me, except it were given you from above, therefore he who delivered me to you has the greater sin."
And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him, but the Jews cried out, saying, "If you let this man go, you are not Caesar's friend, whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar."
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour, and he says to the Jews, "Behold your king!"
But they cried out, "Away with [him], away with [him], crucify him." Pilate says to them, "Shall I crucify your king?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar."
Then he delivered him therefore to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led [him] away.
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 King of the Jews."
Many of the Jews then read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Hebrew, [and] Greek, [and] Latin.
Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The king of the Jews;' but that he said, 'I am king of the Jews.'"
Pilate answered, "What I have written I have written."
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 will be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which says, "They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots." The soldiers therefore did these things. *Psalms 22:18
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 says to his mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
Then he says to the disciple, "Behold your mother!" And from that hour, that disciple took her to his own [home].
After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, says, "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. *Psalms 69:21
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished, and he bowed his head, and gave up [his] spirit."
The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day (for that sabbath day was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.
Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was dead already, they did not break his legs,
But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and forthwith there came out blood and water.
And he who saw [it] bore record, and his record is true, and he knows that he says true, that you might believe.
For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "A bone of him will not be broken." *Psalms 34:20
And again another Scripture says, "They will look on him whom they pierced." *Zechariah 12:10
And after this, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked 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 Nicodemus also came there, who at first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds [weight].
Then they took the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes 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 a man was never yet laid.
There they laid Jesus because of the Jews' preparation [day]; for the sepulcher was near at hand.
The first [day] of the week, Mary Magdalene comes early, when it was still dark, to the sepulcher, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulcher.
Then she runs, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and says to them, "They have taken the master away out of the sepulcher, and we do not know where they have laid him."
Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher.
So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulcher.
And he, stooping down [and looking in], saw the linen clothes lying; yet he did not go in.
Then Simon Peter comes following him, and went into the sepulcher, and sees the linen clothes lying,
And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Then that other disciple also went in, who came first to the sepulcher, and he saw and believed.
For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that he must rise again.
Then the disciples went away again to their own home.
But Mary stood alone at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept, she stooped down [and looked] into the sepulcher,
And sees two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
And they say to her, "Woman, why do you weep?" She says to them, "Because they have taken away my master, and I do not know where they have laid him."
And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and did not know that it was Jesus.
Jesus says to her, "Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?" She, supposing him to be the gardener, says to him, "Sir, if you bore him, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."
Jesus says to her, "Mary." She turned herself, and says to him, "Rabboni;" which is to say, "Master."
Jesus says to her, "Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to my Father, but go to my brothers, and say to them, 'I ascend to my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God.'" *3:51, *5:72, *5:117, *19:36, *43:64
Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the master, and [that] he had spoken these things to her.
Then the same day, at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and says to them, "Peace [be] to you."
And when he had so said, he showed to them [his] hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad, when they saw the master.
Then Jesus said to them again, "Peace [be] to you, as [my] Father has sent me, even so I send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and says to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you remit, they are remitted to them; [and] whose [sins] you retain, they are retained."
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the master." But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe."
And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them, [then] Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace [be] to you."
Then he says to Thomas, "Reach your finger here, and behold my hands; and reach your hand here, and thrust [it] into my side, and do not be faithless, but believing."
And Thomas answered and said to him, "My Lord and my God."
Jesus says to him, "Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed, blessed [are] those who have not seen, and [yet] have believed."
And many other signs did Jesus truly do in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.
But these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the son of God; and that believing, you might have life through his name.
After these things, Jesus showed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise he showed [himself].
There were together, Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the [sons] of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
Simon Peter says to them, "I go fishing." They say to him, "We also go with you." They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
Then Jesus says to them, "Children, do you have any meat?" They answered him, "No."
And he said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you will find." They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fish.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved says to Peter, "It is the master." Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the master, he girt [his] fisher's coat [to him] (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea.
And the other disciples came in a little ship (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits) dragging the net with fish.
As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
Jesus says to them, "Bring of the fish which you have now caught."
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fish, a hundred and fifty three, and for all, there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
Jesus says to them, "Come [and] dine." And none of the disciples asked him, "Who are you?" Knowing that it was the master.
Jesus then comes, and takes bread, and gives them, and fish likewise.
This is now the third time that Jesus showed himself to his disciples, after he had risen from the dead.
So when they had dined, Jesus says to Simon Peter, "Simon, [son] of John, do you love me more than these?" He says to him, "Indeed, master; you know that I love you." He says to him, "Feed my lambs."
He says to him again the second time, "Simon, [son] of John, do you love me?" He says to him, "Indeed, master; you know that I love you." He says to him, "Feed my sheep."
He says to him the third time, "Simon, [son] of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Master, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus says to him, "Feed my sheep.
Verily, verily, I say to you, 'When you were young, you girded yourself, and walked where you would, but when you will be old, you will stretch forth your hands, and another will gird you, and carry [you] where you would not.'"
This he spoke, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he says to him, "Follow me."
Then Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, "Master, who is he who betrays you?"
Peter, seeing him, says to Jesus, "Master, and what [will] this man [do]?"
Jesus says to him, "If I will that he waits until I come, what [is that] to you? Follow me."
Then this saying went abroad among the brothers, that that disciple should not die, yet Jesus did not say to him, "He will not die; but, 'If I will that he waits until I come, what [is that] to you?'"
This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. *~18:109, *~31:27
