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

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him nothing was made that had been made.

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

5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

6 A man came, sent from God, whose name was John.

7 He came as a witness, to testify concerning the light, so that all might believe through him.

8 He was not the light, but came to testify concerning the light,

9 the true light, which gives light to everyone, coming into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, yet the world did not know him.

11 He came unto his own things, and even his own people did not receive him.

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

13 They were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.

14 The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.We have seen his glory, glory as of the one and only son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John testified about him, shouting, "This is the one of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is greater than I, for he existed before me.'"

16 For from his fullness we all have received, one gracious benefit after another.

17 For the law was given through Moses; but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only God, who is near to the Fatherís heart, he has made him known.

This was Johnís testimony, when the Jews sent priests and Levites to him from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?Ē

20 He confessed, and did not deny it, but openly confessed, "I am not the Christ."

21 They asked him, "Who are you then? Are you Elijah?" He replied, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" He answered, "No."

22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? So that we can give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"

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

24 Those who were sent were from the Pharisees.

25 Then they asked John, "Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Christ, Elijah, or the prophet?"

26 John answered them, "I baptize with water, but among you stands one whom you do not know,

27 he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie."

28 These things were done in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan River, where John was baptizing.

On the next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

30 This is the one of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who is greater than I, for he existed before me.'

31 I did not know him.This is the reason I came baptizing with water so that he would be revealed to Israel."

32 Then John testified, "I saw the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven; and it remained on him.

33 I did not know him but he who sent me to baptize with water, said to me, 'Upon whomever you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, this one is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'

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

Again on the next day John was standing with two of his disciples.

36 While looking at Jesus as he walked by, John said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"

37 After his two disciples heard him speak, they followed Jesus.

38 Jesus turned, and saw them following; he asked them, "What do you want?" They replied, "Rabbi (which is translated Teacher), where are you staying?"

39 He said to them, "Come, and see." So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day.It was about four oíclock in the afternoon.

One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

41 He first found his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Christ).

42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas (which is translated Peter)."

On the next day he wanted to go into Galilee, and he found Philip.Jesus said to him, "Follow me."

44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter.

45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."

46 Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."

47 Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, and said concerning him, "Look, a true Israelite, in whom there is no deceit!"

48 Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."

49 Nathanael responded, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God.You are the King of Israel."

50 Jesus said to him, "Because I said I saw you under the fig tree, you believe? You will see greater things than these."

51 He said to him, "Surely I tell you the truth, you will see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† DASV: John 2


1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.

3 When they had run out of wine, Jesusí mother said to him, "They are out of wine."

4 Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with you and me? My hour is not yet come."

5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he tells you, do it."

Now there were six water pots of stone set there according to the Jewish custom of ceremonial washing, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece.

7 Jesus told them, "Fill the water pots with water." So they filled them up to the brim.

8 Then he said to them, "Now draw out some, and take it to the master of ceremonies." So they took it.

9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that had been made into wine, he did not know where it was from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew). The master of ceremonies called the bridegroom,

10 and said to him, "Every one serves first the good wine, then after people have drunk, that which is worse.But you have kept the good wine until now."

11 This was the first miraculous sign that Jesus did in Cana of Galilee.So he revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

After this he went down to Capernaum, he, his mother, his brothers, and his disciples; and they were there a few days.

13 The Jewish Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 He found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting beside their exchange tables.

15 He made a whip of cords, and drove out of the temple both the sheep and oxen.He poured out the changers' money and overturned their tables.

16 To those who sold the doves he said, "Get these things out of here.Do not turn my Father's house into a marketplace."

17 His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me."

The Jews therefore said to him, "What sign do you show us, confirming that you can legitimately do these things?"

19 Jesus replied, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."

20 Then the Jews said, "It took forty-six years to build this temple and you will raise it up in three days?"

21 But he spoke of the temple of his body.

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

Now when he arrived in Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover, many believed on his name, when they saw the miraculous sign he did.

24 But Jesus did not entrust himself to them, for he knew everyone,

25 and did not need anyone to tell him about human nature since he knew what was in man.

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† DASV: John 3


1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a leader in the Jewish ruling council.

2 This man came to Jesus by night, and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these miraculous signs that you do, except that God is with him."

3 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, except one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

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

5 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, except one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God!

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

7 Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'

8 The wind blows wherever it wants to, and you hear its sound, but do not know where it comes from, or where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

9 Nicodemus replied, "How can these things be?"

10 Jesus answered, "You are the teacher of Israel, and do not understand these things?

11 I tell you the truth, we speak about what we know, and bear witness about what we have seen; and you do not receive our testimony.

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

13 No one has ascended into heaven, except he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man.

14 Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;

15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

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

17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through him.

18 He who believes on him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed on the name of the one and only Son of God.

19 This is the judgment: that the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.

20 For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, so that his works might not be exposed.

21 But the one who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be clearly seen as having been done in God."

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

23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was a lot of water there and people were coming and were being baptized.

24 For John had not yet been thrown into prison.

There arose a debate between John's disciples and a Jew about ceremonial washing.

26 So they came to John, and asked him, "Rabbi, he who was with you on the other side of the Jordan River, concerning whom you testified, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him."

27 John replied, "No one can receive anything, except it has been given to him from heaven.

28 You yourselves can attest that I said, 'I am not the Messiah,' but 'I have been sent before him.'

29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom that stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice.Therefore I am filled with joy.

30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

31 The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks from an earthly perspective.The one who comes from heaven is above all.

32 He testifies about what he has seen and heard, but nobody accepts his testimony.

33 The one who has accepted his testimony has confirmed that God is true.

34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for he gives him the Spirit without limits.

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

36 The one who believes on the Son has eternal life; but the one who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him."

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† DASV: John 4


1 Now when Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard that he was making and baptizing more disciples than John

2 (although Jesus himself did not baptize, but his disciples),

3 he left Judea, and set out to return to Galilee.

4 But he had to pass through Samaria.

5 He came to a town in Samaria, called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.

6 Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being tired from his journey, sat there by the well. It was about noon.

7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water.Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink,"

8 for his disciples had gone into town to buy food.

9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, being a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" (For the Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)

10 Jesus replied, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."

11 The woman said to him, "Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep.Where then can you get this living water from?

12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his cattle?"

13 Jesus answered her, "Everyone who drinks from this water will become thirsty again,

14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never thirst; but the water that I will give will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."

15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I will never be thirsty and will not have to come all the way here to draw water."

Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come back here."

17 The woman replied, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You are right when you answered, 'I have no husband,'

18 for you have had five husbands; and the one whom you are living with now is not your husband.In this you have spoken correctly."

19 The woman said to him, "Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped on this mountain; but you Jews say that Jerusalem is the place where people must worship."

21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

22 You people worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.

24 God is a Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

25 The woman said to him, "I know that the Messiah is coming (who is called Christ); when he comes, he will explain everything to us."

26 Jesus said to her, "I, the one talking to you, am he."

Just then his disciples came and they were amazed that he was talking with a woman; yet no one said, "What do you want?" or, "Why are you talking with her?"

28 Then the woman left her water jug, and went away into the town.She told the people,

29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did.This one can't be the Messiah, can he?"

30 They left the town and were coming to him.

31 In the meanwhile the disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat."

32 But he replied, "I have food to eat that you don't know about."

33 The disciples therefore said to each other, "No one has brought him anything to eat, have they?"

34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to complete his work.

35 Do you not say, 'There are still four months, and then comes the harvest?' Look, I tell to you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, they are white, already ripe for harvest.

36 The one who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit for life eternal, so that both the sower and the reaper may rejoice together.

37 For in this case the saying is true, 'One sows and another reaps.'

38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor."

From that town many of the Samaritans believed on him because of the word of the woman, who testified, 'He told me everything that I ever did.'

40 When the Samaritans came to him, they invited him to stay with them.So he stayed there two days.

41 Many more believed because of his word.

42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is in fact the Savior of the world."

After the two days he left there for Galilee.

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

45 So when he came into Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all the things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone to the feast.

46 Once again he came to Cana of Galilee, where he had made the water into wine. Now there was a certain government official whose son was sick at Capernaum.

47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to him, and begged Jesus to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death.

48 Jesus said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders, you will never believe."

49 The government official said to him, "Sir, come down before my child dies."

50 Jesus replied, "Go your way, your son lives." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.

51 As he was going back, his servants met him, telling him that his son was alive.

52 So he asked them the hour when he began to get better. They told him, "Yesterday, at the one in the afternoon the fever left him."

53 Then the father realized that it was at that precise hour that Jesus had told him, "Your son lives." Then he himself believed and his whole house.

54 This again was a second miraculous sign that Jesus did after having come out of Judea into Galilee.

†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 5


1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, which has five porticoes.

3 In these there lay a large number of sick, blind, lame and paralyzed.
[Some less significant manuscripts have:"waiting for the moving of the water.

4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain times into the pool, and stirred the water.Whoever first stepped in after the stirring of the waters was cured, of whatever disease he had.]

5 One man who was there had his disability for thirty-eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and realized that he had been there for a long time, he asked him, "Would you like to be made well?"

7 The sick man replied, "Sir, I have no one, when the water stirs, to put me into the pool, but while I am coming, someone else steps down before me."

8 Jesus said to him, "Get up, pick up your mat and walk."

9 Immediately the man was healed, and he picked up his mat and walked. Now that day was the Sabbath.

The Jews said to the one who had been cured, "It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat."

11 But he replied, "He who healed me told me to 'Pick up your mat and walk.'"

12 They asked him, "Who told you to 'Pick up your mat and walk'?

13 But he who was healed did not know who it was; for Jesus had slipped away since there was a crowd in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "Look, you have been healed, sin no more, lest a worse thing happen to you."

15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had cured him.

Because of this the Jews started harassing Jesus, because he did these things on the Sabbath.

17 But Jesus defended himself to them, "My Father is working until now, so I am working too."

18 Because of this the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the Sabbath, but also claimed that God was his own Father, making himself equal with God.

19 So Jesus answered them, "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself, but what he sees the Father doing, for whatever things he does, these the Son does too.

20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows him everything that he himself does.Greater works than these the Father will show him, so that you may be astonished.

21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whomever he wants to.

22 For the Father does not judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to the Son,

23 that everyone may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

24 I tell you the truth, the one who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and will not be condemned, but has passed from death into life.

25 I tell you the truth, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

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

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

28 Do not be surprised by this, for the hour is coming in which everyone who is in the tombs will hear his voice

29 and will come out, those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.

30 By myself I can do nothing.Just as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is fair; because I do not seek my own will, but the will of him who sent me.

If I bear witness about myself, my witness is not true.

32 It is another who testifies about me; and I know that the testimony which he gives about me is true.

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

34 But I do not accept human testimony, yet I say these things so that you may be saved.

35 He was a lamp that burned and shined; and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.

36 But the testimony I have is greater than John's; for the works which the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I am doing, testify about me that the Father has sent me.

37 The Father who sent me has testified concerning me. You have never ever heard his voice or seen his form,

38 nor do you have his word abiding in you, because you do not believe the one whom he has sent.

Search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; yet it is these that testify about me.

40 But you are unwilling to come to me that you may have life.

41 I do not accept glory from people.

42 But I know that you do not have the love of God in you.

43 I have come in my Father's name and you have not accepted me.If someone else comes in his own name, you will receive that one.

44 How can you believe since you welcome praise from each other, but you don't seek the praise that comes from God alone?

45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you, even Moses, on whom you have set your hope.

46 For if you had believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me.

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

1 After this Jesus went across to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias.

2 A large crowd followed him because they saw the signs he was doing for those who were sick.

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

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

5 Jesus, lifting up his eyes, saw a large crowd coming to him, and said to Philip, "Where can we go to buy bread, so that these people may eat?"

6 He said this to test him, for he knew what he was going to do.

7 Philip replied, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to have a little."

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,

9 "There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fishes.But what use is that among so many people?"

10 Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was a lot of grass in the place. So the people sat down, numbering about five thousand men.

11 Then Jesus took the loaves, and having given thanks, he distributed to those who were seated; and did the same with the fish, providing as much as they wanted.

12 When they were filled, he said to his disciples, "Gather up the broken fragments which were left over, so that nothing is wasted."

13 So they picked them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.

14 When therefore the people saw the miraculous sign which he did, they said, "This is truly the prophet who is to come into the world."

15 When Jesus realized that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, he withdrew again into the mountain alone.

When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,

17 got into a boat, and started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It was already dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.

18 The sea was rough because a great wind was blowing.

19 When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea, approaching the boat. They were terrified.

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

21 They were desirous to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat arrived at the land where they were going.

22 On the next day the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there were no other boats there, except one, and that Jesus had not entered with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples had gone out alone.

23 But some boats came from Tiberias near the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks.

24 When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.

25 When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, "Rabbi, when did you arrive here?"

26 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, you seek me, not because you saw the miraculous signs, but because you ate the loaves and were filled.

27 Do not work for food which perishes, but for the food which lasts to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you.For God the Father has his stamp of approval on him."

They asked him, "What must we do that we may do the works God approves of?"

29 Jesus replied, "This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent."

30 Then they said to him, "What miraculous sign will you do so that we may see it, and believe you? What work can you do?

31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'"

32 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; but now my Father is giving you the true bread from heaven.

33 For the bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world."

34 They said him, "Lord, always give us this bread."

35 Jesus replied. "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will not hunger, and whoever believes on me will never thirst.

36 But I told you that you have seen me and still you don't believe.

37 Everyone the Father gives me will come to me; and whoever comes to me I will never throw out.

38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.

39 Now this is the will of him who sent me, that I should not lose one of all those he has given me, but should raise them up on the last day.

40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son, and believes on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day."

Then Jews complained about him, because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."

42 They said, "Isn't this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then does he claim, 'I have come down from heaven'?

43 Jesus replied, "Don't complain among yourselves.

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

45 It is written in the prophets, 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father, and learns, comes to me.

46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except he who is from God, he has seen the Father.

47 I tell you the truth, whoever believes has eternal life.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness and they died.

50 This is the bread that comes down from heaven, that a person may eat it and not die.

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever.The bread that I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world."


52 The Jews argued with each other, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"

53 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, except you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves.

54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day.

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

56 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him.

57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.

58 This is the bread come down from heaven; not like that which your forefathers ate and died; whoever eats this bread will live forever."

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


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

61 But Jesus, realizing that his disciples complained about this, said to them, "Does this offend you?

62 Then what if you should see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?

63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit, and they are life.

64 But there are some of you who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray him.

65 Then he said, "This is the reason I told you that no one can come to me, except it is granted to him by the Father."

66 After this many of his disciples turned back, and no longer walked with him.

67 Then Jesus asked the twelve, "You also don't want to leave, do you?"

68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life.

69 We have believed and know that you are the Holy One of God."

70 Jesus answered them, "Did not I choose you, the Twelve? But one of you is a devil."

71 Now he was talking about Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he was the one who was going to betray him, even though he was one of the twelve.

1 After this Jesus traveled in Galilee, for he refused to travel in Judea, because the Jews were trying to kill him.

2 Now the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was at hand.

3 So his brothers said to him, "Leave here, and go into Judea, so that your disciples may also see the works which you are doing.

4 For no one who wants to be famous does anything in secret. If you do in fact do these things, show yourself to the world."

5 For even his brothers did not believe in him.

6 Jesus said to them, "My time has not yet come; but your time is always present.

7 The world cannot hate you; but it hates me because I provide evidence against it, that its deeds are evil.

8 Go up to the feast. I am not going up to this feast, because my time has not yet fully come."

9 After saying this to them, he stayed in Galilee.

But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he went up also, not publicly but secretly.

11 The Jews were looking for him at the feast, and asked, "Where is he?"

12 There were many rumors among the crowd about him.Some said, "He is a good man;" others said, "Not, but he deceives the crowds."

13 Yet no one spoke openly about him for fear of the Jews.

But during the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and began to teach.

15 The Jews therefore were surprised, saying, "How does this man have such learning having never had any formal training?"

16 Jesus replied, "My teaching is not mine, but the one who sent me.

17 If anyone desires to do God's will, he will know my teaching, whether it is from God, or whether I speak only from myself.

18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him, the same is true, and there is no dishonesty in him.

19 Didn't Moses give you the law, yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you want to kill me?"

20 The crowd answered, "You have a demon.Who wants to kill you?"

21 Jesus replied, "I did one work, and all of you are astonished because of it.

22 Moses has given you circumcision (not that it was from Moses, but from the patriarchs); yet you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.

23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses is not broken, why are you angry with me because I healed a man on the Sabbath?

24 Judge not according to mere appearance, but judge with right judgment."

25 Some of those from Jerusalem said, "Is not this the one they are wanting to kill?

26 But here he is speaking openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the leaders really know that this is the Messiah?

27 But we know where this man is from, but when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from."

28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, while teaching, "You both know me, and know where I am from.I have not come on my own, but he who sent me is true, whom you do not know.

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

30 They sought to nab him but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.

31 But many of the crowd believed in him.They said, "When the Messiah comes, will he do more signs than those which this man has done?"

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about him; and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.

33 Then Jesus said, "I will be with you yet a little longer, then I am returning to him who sent me.

34 You will seek me, but will not find me, and where I am, you cannot come."

35 Then the Jews said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we will not find him? Will he go to the diaspora among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

36 What did he mean by saying, 'You will seek me, but will not find me;' and 'Where I am, you cannot come'?"

Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.

38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'from within him will flow out rivers of living water.'"

39 But he said this about the Spirit, which they who believed in him were about to receive.For the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Then some of the crowd, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet."

41 Others said, "This is the Messiah." But some said, "What, will the Messiah come out of Galilee?

42 Hasn't the Scripture said that the Messiah will come from the descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was from?"

43 So there arose a division among the crowd because of him.

44 Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him.

Then officers returned to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they asked them, "Why did you not bring him here?"

46 The officers answered, "No one has ever spoken like this."

47 Then Pharisees replied, "Are you also deceived?

48 Have any of the religious leaders or Pharisees believed in him?

49 But this crowd that does not know the law is accursed."

50 Nicodemus, who had come to Jesus before, being one of them, said to them,

51 "Our law doesn't judge a man without first hearing from him and knowing what he does, does it?"

52 They replied, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and see, no prophet comes from Galilee."


53 [The earliest manuscripts we currently have do not have John 7:53-8:11:
Then each of them went home.


†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 8


1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 Early in the morning he returned to the temple, and all the people came to him; and he sat down and taught them.

3 The religious scholars and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery.They made her stand in front of them.

4 They said to him, "Teacher, this woman was caught committing adultery.

5 Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such a woman. Now what do you say?"

6 They asked this attempting to trap him, so that they might have something to accuse him of. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.

7 But when they kept on asking him, he stood up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her."

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

9 When they heard this, they left one by one, beginning from the eldest, so Jesus was left alone with the woman still standing in the middle of the crowd.

10 Jesus stood up, and said to her, ďWoman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"

11 She replied, "No one, Lord." Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you.Go and sin no more."]


Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world.Whoever follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life."

13 Then Pharisees said to him, "You testify concerning yourself; so your testimony is not true."

14 Jesus replied, "Even if I testify concerning myself, my testimony is true; for I know where I came from, and where I am going; but you do not know where I have come from, or where I am going.

15 You judge by appearances; but I do not judge anyone.

16 Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent me.

17 In your law it is written that the testimony of two people is true.

18 I testify concerning myself, and the Father who sent me testifies concerning me."

19 Then they asked him, "Where is your Father?" Jesus replied, "You donít know me or my Father.If you knew me, you would know my Father also."

20 These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple.No one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

21 Again Jesus said to them, "I am going away, and you will look for me, but you will die in your sin.Where I am going, you cannot come."

22 The Jews wondered, "Will he kill himself? Is that why he said, 'Where I am going, you cannot come'?"

23 Then Jesus continued, "You are from below; I am from above.You are of this world; I am not of this world.

24 So I told you that you will die in your sins; unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins."

25 They said therefore to him, "Who are you?" Jesus replied, "Just who I have been telling you from the beginning.

26 I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but he who sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him I declare to the world."

27 They did not realize that he was speaking to them about the Father.

28 Then Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own, but I speak only the things that the Father has taught me.

29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him."

30 As he spoke these things, many believed in him.

Then Jesus said to those Jews who had believed him, "If you remain faithful to my word, then you are truly my disciples;

32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

33 They objected, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone; how can you say, 'You will be made free'?"

34 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.

35 The slave does not remain as a permanent part of the family; but the son remains forever.

36 If therefore the Son will make you free, you will be truly free.

37 I know that you are Abraham's descendants; yet you are trying to kill me, because my word has found no place in you.

38 I am speaking of things that I have seen with my Father; and you also do the things you have heard from your father."

They answered him, "Our father is Abraham." Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do what Abraham did.

40 But now you are trying to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

41 You do the works of your father." They said to him, "We were not born illegitimately; we have one Father, God himself."

42 Jesus replied, "If God were your Father, you would love me; for I came from God which is why I am here.For I have not come on my own, but he sent me.

43 Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot really hear my word.

44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father is what you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stands not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks from his character, for he is a liar, and the father of lies.

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

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

47 He who is of God hears the words of God; this is why you donít hear them, because you do not belong to God."

The Jews answered, "Arenít we correct in saying you are a Samaritan, and have a demon?"

49 Jesus replied, "I do not have a demon; but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
50 But I seek not my own glory; there is one who seeks it and he also judges.

51 I tell you the truth, if a man keeps my word, he will never see death."

52 The Jews said to him, "Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets; and you claim, 'If a man keeps my word, he will never taste of death'.

53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets are dead too.Who are you claiming to be?" ††

54 Jesus replied, "If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me; whom you claim is your God.

55 You do not know him; but I know him.If I should say, I do not know him, I would be like to you, a liar.But I know him and obey his word.

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it, and was glad."

57 Then Jews said to him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and you have seen Abraham?"

58 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I am."

59 Then they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself, and left the temple.

1 As Jesus passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.

2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"

3 Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned; it happened so that the works of God might be revealed in him.

4 We must do the works of him who sent me, while it is day; the night comes, when no one can work.

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

6 After having said this, he spat on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and smeared the mud on his eyes.

7 He told him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated, "Sent"). So he went away, washed and returned seeing.

Then the neighbors and those who saw him before, when he was a beggar, asked, "Is not this the man who used to sit and beg?"

9 Others said, "It is he." Others said, "No, but he looks like him." But he insisted, "I am he."

10 So they kept asking him, "How then were your eyes opened?"
11 He answered, "The man that is called Jesus made mud, and smeared it on my eyes, and told me, 'Go to Siloam, and wash'. So I went and washed, and I received my sight."

12 They asked him, "Where is he?" He responded, "I don't know."

They brought to the Pharisees the one who had formerly been blind.

14 Now the day when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes was the Sabbath.

15 Then the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. He told them, "He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and now I see."

16 Some of the Pharisees said, "This man is not from God, because he doesn't keep the Sabbath." But others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such miraculous signs?" There was division among them.

17 So they asked the blind man again, "What do you say about him, in that he opened your eyes?" He replied, "He is a prophet."

The Jews refused to believe that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of the man who had received his sight.

19 They asked them, "Is this your son, who you allege was born blind? How then is he able to see now?"

20 His parents replied, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind.

21 But how he now is able to see, we don't know, nor do we know who opened his eyes.Ask him, he is of age.He can speak for himself."

22 His parents said these things because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone should confess Jesus to be the Messiah, he would be put out of the synagogue.

23 That is why his parents said, "He is of age, ask him."

So they called the man who was blind a second time, and told him, "Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner."

25 He answered, "Whether he is a sinner, I don't know; one thing I do know: that once I was blind, now I see."

26 They said to him, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?"

27 He replied, "I told you already, and you didn't listen.Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?"

28 Then they ridiculed him saying, "You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.

29 We know that God has spoken to Moses; but as for this man, we don't know where he comes from."

30 The man answered, "Why, this is amazing, that you don't know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes.

31 We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshipper of God and does his will, God listens to him.

32 Never since the world began has it ever been heard that someone opened the eyes of a man born blind.

33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing."

34 They answered, "You were totally born in sins, and you dare teach us?" Then they threw him out.

35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out.After finding him, he asked, "Do you believe on the Son of Man?"

36 He asked, "And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?"

37 Jesus told him, "You have seen him and he is talking with you."

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

39 Then Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see; and those who see may become blind."

40 Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, "Certainly we are not blind, are we?"

41 Jesus said to them, "If you had been blind, you would have no sin; but now you claim, 'We see,' so your sin remains."

1 "I tell you the truth, whoever enters not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way is a thief and a robber.

2 But the one who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 To him the doorkeeper opens; and the sheep hear his voice.He calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.

4 When he has brought out all his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him because they recognize his voice.

5 They will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him because they do not recognize the voice of strangers."

6 This parable Jesus spoke to them.But they did not understand what he was talking about.

Then Jesus said to them again, "I tell you the truth, I am the door for the sheep.

8 All who came before me were thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not listen to them.

9 I am the door.If anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out, and find pasture.

10 The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I came so that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

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

12 The hired hand, who is not a shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and abandons the sheep and runs away, and the wolf snatches them, and scatters them.

13 He runs away because he is a hired hand, and does not really care about the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,

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

16 Other sheep I have, which are not from this sheepfold. I must also bring them, and they will listen to my voice; and they will become one flock under one shepherd.

17 The Father loves me because I lay down my life, so that I may take it up again.

18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down voluntarily. I have the power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. This commandment I have received from my Father."

There was another division among the Jews because of these words.

20 Many of them said, "He has a demon, and is out of his mind.Why do you listen to him?

21 Others said, "These are not the words of one possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"

22 It was time for the Feast of the Dedication [Hanukkah] at Jerusalem in the winter.

23 Jesus was walking in the temple area in Solomon's Portico.

24 The Jews surrounded him, and said to him, "How long will you hold us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly."

25 Jesus replied, "I told you and you did not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name testify about me.

26 But you do not believe, because you are not my sheep.

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

28 I give them eternal life; and they will never perish.No one can snatch them out of my hand.

29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

30 I and the Father are one."

31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone him.


32 Jesus asked them, "I have showed you many good works from the Father; for which of those works are you stoning me?"

33 The Jews replied, "We are not stoning you for a good work, but for blasphemy; because you who are just a man, claim to be God.

34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, you are gods'?"

35 If those to whom the word of God came were called 'gods,' and the Scripture cannot be broken,

36 can you say about him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'you are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?

37 If I do not do the works of my Father, then don't believe me.

38 But if I do them, though you don't believe me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."

39 They tried again to arrest him but he escaped out of their hand.

40 He went away again across the Jordan River into the place where John had been first baptizing, and he stayed there.

41 Many came to him and said, "John performed no miraculous sign, but everything John spoke concerning this man was true."

42 And many believed in Jesus there.

1 Now a certain man, Lazarus of Bethany, from the village of Mary and her sister Martha, was sick.

2 It was Mary, who had anointed the Lord with perfume, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.

3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, saying, "Lord, he whom you love is sick."

4 But when Jesus heard it, he said, "This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by it."

5 Now Jesus loved Martha, her sister and Lazarus.

6 When therefore he heard that he was sick, he stayed two days in the place where he was.

Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let's go to back to Judea."

8 But the disciples objected, "Rabbi, the Jews were just trying to stone you; and you want to go back there again?"

9 Jesus replied, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he won't stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

10 But if someone walks in the night, he will stumble, because the light is not in him."

11 After saying these things he told them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, that I may wake him up."

12 Then the disciples responded, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover."

13 Now Jesus had spoken about his death; but they thought that he meant just normal sleep.

14 Then Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.

15 But I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let's go to him."

16 Thomas, called Didymus [meaning Twin], said to his fellow disciples, "Let's go too, so that we may die with him."

Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days.

18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, less than two miles away.

19 Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to console them over the loss of their brother.

20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him.But Mary remained sitting in the house.

21 Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

22 But even now I know that, whatever you ask from God, God will give it to you."

23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."

24 Martha replied, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life.Whoever believes in me will live even if he dies.

26 Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

27 She replied, "Yes, Lord. I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world."

After she said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, "The Teacher is here, and is asking for you."

29 When she heard it, she got up quickly and went to him.

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

31 The Jews then who were with her in the house, and were consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, followed her, assuming that she was going to the tomb to weep there.

32 Mary therefore, when she came to where Jesus was and saw him, fell down at his feet, saying to him, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died."
33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and disturbed.

34 He asked, "Where have you laid him?" They replied, "Lord, come and see."

35 Jesus wept.

36 So the Jews said, "See how much he loved him!"

37 But some of them said, "Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this man from dying?"

Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was set across its entrance.

39 Jesus said, "Remove the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him, "Lord, by this time there will be a stench because he has been dead for four days."

40 Jesus said to her, "Didn't I tell you, that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"

41 So they removed the stone. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes, and prayed, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me.

42 I knew that you always listen to me; but I said it because of the crowd that stands here, that they may believe that you have sent me."

43 After he said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out."

44 He who was dead came out, bound hand and foot with grave clothes; and his face was wrapped with a headcloth. Jesus told them, "Loose him, and let him go."

45 So many of the Jews, who had come to Mary and saw what he did, believed in him.

But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.

47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, "What are we going to do? This man is performing many miraculous signs.

48 If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him.Then the Romans will come and take away both our holy place and our nation."

49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You don't know anything.

50 You don't realize that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, than that the whole nation should be destroyed."

51 Now he said this not from himself; but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation;

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

53 So from that day on they plotted how they might put him to death.

As a result Jesus no longer walked openly among the Jews, but departed from there into the country near the wilderness, to a town called Ephraim.He stayed there with his disciples.

55 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand.Many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover in order to purify themselves.

56 They were looking for Jesus, and spoke to each other, as they stood in the temple area, saying, "What do you think? He won't come to the feast, will he?

57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders, that if anyone knew where he was, they should inform them, so that they might arrest him.

†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 12


1 Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.

2 So they prepared a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him.

3 Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume made of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair.The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, who would betray him, complained,

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

6 Now he said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and took care of the disciplesí moneybag, and he used to steal some for himself from what was put in it.

7 Then Jesus said, "Leave her alone, for she did this for my burial day.

8 For you always have the poor with you; but me you do not always have."

When a crowd of the Jews learned that he was there, they came, not only for Jesus' sake, but so that they might see Lazarus too, whom he had raised from the dead.

10 Now the chief priests were planning to put Lazarus to death as well,

11 because on account of him many of the Jews were deserting and believing in Jesus.
12 The next day a large crowd had come to the feast when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.

13 They took the branches from palm trees, and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, blessed is the King of Israel."

14 Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat on it, as it is written,

15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion.Look, your King comes, sitting on a donkey's colt."

16 His disciples did not understand these things at the 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.

17 The crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, told others about it.

18 Because they heard that Jesus had done this miraculous sign, the crowd went out and met him.

19 Then Pharisees said among themselves, "Look, you canít do anything for the world has gone after him."

Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the feast.

21 These approached Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, "Sir, we want to see Jesus."

22 Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.

23 Jesus replied, "The hour is come that the Son of Man should be glorified.

24 I tell you the truth, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.

25 Whoever loves his life will lose it; and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for life eternal.

26 If anyone wants to serve me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be as well; if anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

27 Now is my soul troubled.What should I say? Father, save me from this hour. But this is the very reason I have come to this hour.

28 Father, glorify your name." Then a voice out of heaven said, "I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again."

29 The crowd standing there heard it, but thought it had thundered.Others said, "An angel spoke to him."

30 Jesus answered, "This voice has come for your benefit, not mine.

31 Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be thrown out.

32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself."

33 He said this, indicating by what manner of death he would die.

The crowd answered him, "We have heard from the law that the Christ remains forever so how can you claim, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of Man?"

35 Jesus replied, "Yet a little while the light will be with you. Walk while you have the light, so that darkness does not overtake you.The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going.

36 While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become sons of light." These things Jesus spoke, then he left and hid from them.

Even though he had done so many signs in front of them, still they did not believe in him.

38 This was so the word of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled when he said, "Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"

39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah also said,

40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts; so that they would not see with their eyes, understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them."

41 Isaiah said these things, because he saw his glory and spoke about him.

42 Nevertheless, even many of the rulers believed in him; but because of the Pharisees they did not admit it publically, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue.

43 For they loved the praise of men more than praise from God.

Then Jesus cried out, "Whoever believes in me, believes not in me, but in him who sent me.

45 and whoever sees me sees him who sent me.

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

47 If anyone hears my sayings, and does not keep them, I do not judge him.For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 The one who rejects me, and does not receive my sayings, has one who judges him; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.

49 For I did not speak from myself; but the Father who sent me, he has given me a commandment about what I should say and what I should speak.

50 I know that his commandment is life eternal.The things therefore which I speak, are just what the Father has told to me to say."

1 Now just before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to his Father.Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2 During supper, the devil had already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him.

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

4 rose from supper and laid aside his outer garments, took a towel and tied it around himself.

5 Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them dry with the towel that he had wrapped around him.

When he came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?"

7 Jesus replied, "You don't understand what I'm doing now; but you will understand it later."

8 Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "If I don't 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 Jesus replied, "One who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, to be totally clean.And you disciples are clean, but not all of you."

11 For he knew who was going to betray him; which is why he said, "All of you are not clean."

So when he had washed their feet, he put on his clothes, and sat down again.He said to them, "Do you realize what I have done to you?

13 You call me, 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and you are right; for that is what I am.

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

15 For I have given you an example, that you should do just as I have done to you.

16 I tell you the truth, a servant is not greater than his master; neither is a messenger sent greater than the one who sent him.

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

18 I am not speaking about all of you; I know the ones I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled that says: 'He who eats my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'

19 I am telling you this before it happens, so that when it comes to pass, you may believe that I am he.

20 I tell you the truth, anyone who receives whomever I send receives me; and he who receives me receives him who sent me."


21 After Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me."

22 The disciples looked at each other, wondering whom he was talking about.

23 There was at the table reclining next to Jesus, one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

24 Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus who he was talking about.

25 So he, leaning back next to Jesus, asked him, "Lord, who is it?"

26 Jesus replied, "It is the one to whom I give this piece of bread." So when he had dipped the piece of bread, he took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

27 After Judas had taken the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you are going to do, do quickly."

28 Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him.

29 Some thought that because Judas had the moneybag, that Jesus said to him, "Buy whatever we need for the feast", or that he should give something to the poor.

30 So after he had received the piece of bread he went out immediately. Now it was night.

When therefore he had gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

32 If God is glorified in him, he will glorify him in himself and will glorify him right away.

33 Children, I will be with you just a little while longer. You will seek me and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I go, you cannot come', so now I am telling you.

A new commandment I am giving you, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.

35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

36 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going, you cannot follow me now; but you will follow afterward."

37 Peter said to him, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."

38 Jesus replied, "Will you lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, the rooster will not crow, until you have denied me three times."

†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 14


1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled.You believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many dwellings.If it were not so, I would have told you; because I am going to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and get you; that where I am, you may be also.

4 And you know the way to where I am going."

Thomas asked him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going.How can we know the way?"

6 Jesus replied, "I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father, except through me.

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

Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied."

9 Jesus replied, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you still don't know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father.How then can you say, 'Show us the Father'?

10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you I speak not from myself, but the Father who lives in me does his works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or else believe me just because of the miraculous works' themselves.

12 I tell you the truth, whoever believes on me, the works that I do he will do also; and he will do even greater works than these because I am going to the Father.

Whatever you ask in my name, I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.

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

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will be with you forever;

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive; for it does not see him or know him.You know him; for he lives with you, and will be in you.

18 I will not abandon you as orphans; I will come to you.

19 In a little while, the world will see me no more; but you will see me; because I live, you too will live.

20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I in you.

21 The one who has my commandments, and obeys them, that one loves me and the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."

Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, what has happened that you intend to manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?"

23 Jesus replied, "If someone loves me, he will obey my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our residence with him.

24 The one who does not love me does not obey my words.The word you hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.

25 I have spoken these things to you, while I am still with you.

26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance everything that I told you.

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I am not giving it to you as the world gives it. Don't let your heart be troubled or afraid.

28 You heard how I said to you, I am going away, but I will come back to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I go to the Father; because the Father is greater than I.

Now I have told you before it happens, so that when it takes place, you may believe.

30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of the world is coming.He has no power over me,

31 but I am doing what the Father commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Get up, let's get out of here."

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

2 Every branch in me that bears not fruit, he cuts off; and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, so that it will bear more fruit.

3 Already you are clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, except it remain in the vine; neither can you, unless you remain in me.

5 I am the vine, you are the branches.The one who remains in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for apart from me you can do nothing.

6 If a man does not remain in me, he is thrown away like a branch, and withers.They gather them up, and throw them into the fire and are burned up.

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

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

As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you; remain in my love.

10 If you obey my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commandments and remain in his love.

11 I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.

12 This is my commandment: love one another, just as I have loved you.

13 No one has greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

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

15 No longer do I call you servants; for the servant does not know what his master does.But I have called you friends, for everything that I have heard from my Father, I have made known to you.

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you.I appointed you to go and bear fruit.Your fruit will last because whatever you will ask from the Father in my name, he will give it to you.

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

If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

20 Remember the word that I told you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too.If they have obeyed my word, they will obey yours too.

21 But they will do all these things to you for my name's sake, because they do not know the one who sent me.

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

23 Whoever hates me, also hates my Father.

24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin.But now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this happened to fulfill the word that is written in their law, 'They hated me without a cause.'

But when the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who comes from the Father, he will testify about me.

27 You also will testify, because you have been with me from the beginning."

†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 16


1 "I have spoken all these things to you, so that you will not fall away.

2 They will put you out of the synagogues; yet the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think that he is offering service to God.

3 They will do these things, because they have not known the Father or me.

4 But I am telling you these things, so that when the time comes, you may remember how I told you about them. I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

5 But now I am going to him who sent me; and none of you is asking me, 'Where are you going'?

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

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

8 When he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment:

9 of sin, because they do not believe in me;

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

11 of judgment, because the prince of this world has been condemned.

12 I still have many things to tell you, but you cannot handle them now.

13 However, when the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth.For he will not speak on his own authority; but whatever he hears, he will speak; and he will tell you about what is to come.

14 He will glorify me, for he will receive it from me, and will declare it to you.

15 Everything that the Father has is mine; that is why I said that he will receive it from me, and declare it to you.

A little while, and you will no longer see me; and again a little while, and you will see me."

17 Then some of his disciples said to each other, "What does he mean, 'A little while, and you will not see me; and again in a little while, you will see me'; and 'because I am going to the Father'?"

18 Then they said, "What does he mean, 'A little while'? We don't know what he is talking about."

19 Jesus perceived that they wanted to ask him, so he said to them, "Are you asking each other about what I said, 'A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little while, and you will see me'?

20 I tell you the truth, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned to joy.

21 When a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she has given birth to her child, she does not remember the suffering, because of the joy that a baby has been born into the world.

22 But you now have sorrow; but I will see you again, then your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.

23 In that day you will not ask me anything. I tell you the truth, if you will ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.

24 So far you have not asked for anything in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made complete.

25 I have told you these things in figures of speech. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in abstruse figures, but will tell you plainly about the Father.

26 In that day you will ask in my name.I am not telling you that I will ask the Father on your behalf;

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

28 I came from the Father, and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."

His disciples said, "See, now you are speaking plainly and not with abstruse figures.

30 Now we know that you know all things, and do not need to have anyone ask you anything.Because of this we believe that you came from God."

31 Jesus replied, "Do you now believe?

32 The hour is coming, indeed has come already, when you will be scattered, everyone to his own place, and I will be left alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

33 I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have trouble; but take courage, I have overcome the world."

1 After having spoken these things, Jesus lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour is come; glorify your son, so that the son may glorify you,

2 just as you gave him authority over all people, so that he may give eternal life to all those you have given him.

3 This is life eternal, that they should know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

4 I glorified you on the earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.

5 Now, Father, glorify me beside you with the glory which I had with you before the world was made.

I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world.They were yours, and you gave them to me; and they have kept your word.

7 Now they know that everything you have given me is from you,

8 for the words which you gave me I have given to them; and they received them, and know for sure that I came from you, and they have believed that you sent me.

9 I pray for them. I pray not for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.

10 Everything that is mine is yours, and yours is mine, and I am glorified by them.

11 I am no longer in the world, yet these are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, by your name watch over those you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.

12 While I was with them, I watched over them by your name which you have given me.I guarded them so that not one of them was lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

13 But now I am coming to you; and I am saying these things in the world, that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.

14 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.

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

16 They do not belong to the world even as I do not belong to the world.

17 Consecrate them by the truth; your word is truth.

18 Just as you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.

19 And for their sakes I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated by the truth.

I do not pray for these only, but also for those who will believe on me through their word,

21 that all of them may be one; just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they may also be in us; that the world may believe that you have sent me.
22 The glory you have given me I have given them; that they may be one, just as we are one.

23 I in them and you in me that they may be brought into perfect unity; that the world may know that you sent me, and love them, just as you love me.

24 Father, I desire that those you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, that you have given me; for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me.

26 I have made known your name to them, and will make it known; so that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them."

1 After Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley.He and his disciples entered the garden there.

2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples.

3 So Judas brought a band of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees.They approached with lanterns, torches and weapons.

4 Then Jesus, who knew everything that was going to happen to him, went out, and asked them, "Who are you looking for?"

5 They answered, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus replied, "I am he." Judas who betrayed him was also standing with them.

6 When Jesus said to them, "I am he," they moved back and fell to the ground.

7 Again he asked them, "Who are you looking for?" They said, "Jesus of Nazareth."

8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, let these others go."

9 He said this so that the word might be fulfilled which he spoke, "I have not lost a single one of those whom you have given me."

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

11 Then Jesus told Peter, "Put your sword back into the sheath; must I not drink the cup the Father has given to me?"


12 So the band of soldiers, the commander and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him.

13 First they led him to Annas; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.

14 Now Caiaphas was the one who gave counsel to the Jews that it was beneficial that one person should die for the people.


15 Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. Now the high priest knew that disciple, so he entered with Jesus into the court of the high priest.

16 But Peter was standing outside the door. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the woman who kept the door, and brought Peter in.

17 The servant girl who kept the door asked Peter, "You're not one of this man's disciples too, are you? He said, "No, I'm not."

18 Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a charcoal fire; for it was cold; and they were warming themselves.Peter also was with them, standing there warming himself.


19 The high priest asked Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.

20 Jesus answered him, "I have spoken openly to the world; I have always taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where all the Jews gather.I have said nothing in secret.

21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me, what I spoke to them.They know what I said."

22 When he said this, one of the officers standing by slapped Jesus' face, saying, "Is this how you answer the high priest?"

23 Jesus replied, "If I have said something wrong, testify proving it wrong. But if I spoke what was right, why did you slap me?"

24 Annas therefore sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

Now Simon Peter was standing warming himself. Then they asked him, "Are you not one of his disciples?" He denied it, "No, I'm not."

26 One of the high priest's servants, being a relative of the one whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Didn't I see you in the garden with him?"

27 Then Peter denied again, and immediately the rooster crowed.

Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the governor's palace.It was early in the morning.They themselves did not enter the governor's palace, so that they would not become ritually defiled but be able to eat the Passover.

29 Then Pilate went out to them, and said, "What accusation are you bringing against this man?"

30 They replied, "If this man were not a criminal, we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Then Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves, and judge him according to your law." But the Jews replied, "It is not lawful for us to put someone to death."

32 This fulfilled the word Jesus had spoken, indicating what kind of death he would die.

Then Pilate entered again into the governor's palace, summoned Jesus, and asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"

34 Jesus replied, "Are you asking this for yourself, or did others tell you about me?"

35 Pilate answered, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me.What have you done?"

36 Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.But my kingdom is not from here."

37 Then Pilate asked him, "Are you a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. This is why I was born, and for this reason I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."

38 Pilate said to him, "What is truth?" When he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and told them, "I find no criminal charge against him.

39 But you have a custom, that I should release a prisoner to you at the Passover.Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"

40 They cried out again, "Not this man, but Barabbas." Now Barabbas was a bandit.

††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††DASV: John 19


1 Then Pilate took Jesus and had him severely beaten.

2 The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple robe.

3 They came to him, and said, "Hail, King of the Jews!" They repeatedly struck him in the face.

4 Then Pilate went out again, and said to them, "Look, I bring him out to you to let you know that I find no criminal charge against him."

5 Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. Pilate said to them, "Look, here is the man!"

6 When the chief priests and officers saw him, they shouted out, "Crucify him, crucify him!" Pilate told them, "Take him yourselves, and crucify him; for I find no criminal case against him."

7 The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and by that law he ought to die, because he claimed to be the Son of God."

When Pilate heard this accusation, he was even more afraid.
9 So he entered into the governor's palace again, and asked Jesus, "Where are you from?" But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then Pilate said to him, "Do you not answer me? Don't you realize that I have power to release you and to crucify you?"

11 Jesus replied, "You would have no power against me, except it were given to you from above.Therefore the one who has handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin."

12 After this Pilate sought to release him; but the Jews shouted out, "If you release this man, you are not Caesar's friend.Everyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar."

13 When Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called The Stone Pavement (in Aramaic, Gabbatha).

14 Now it was about noon on the day of the preparation for the Passover. And Pilate said to the Jews, "Look, your King!"

15 Then they shouted out, "Away with him!Away with him! Crucify him!" Pilate asked them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar."

16 Then Pilate handed Jesus over to them to be crucified.

So they took Jesus and carrying the cross by himself, he went to the place called "The Place of the Skull," or as it is called in Aramaic, Golgotha.

18 There they crucified him, along with two others, one on each side, with Jesus in the middle.

19 Pilate wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews."

20 This inscription was read by many of the Jews, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city and it was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek.

21 Then the chief priests of the Jews complained to Pilate, "Don't write, 'The King of the Jews,' but only that he claimed, 'I am King of the Jews'."

22 Pilate replied, "What I have written, I have written."

23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier and also the robe.Now the robe was seamless, woven into a single piece.

24 So they said to each other, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for who will get it." This was done that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "They parted my garments among them, and for my clothes they cast lots."

So that is what the soldiers did. Now there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus saw his mother, and standing by her was the disciple whom he loved, he said to his mother, "Woman, look, here is your son!"

27 Then he said to the disciple, "Look, here is your mother!" From that hour on the disciple took her to his own home.

After this Jesus knew that all things were now completed, and so that the Scripture might be fulfilled he said, "I thirst."

29 There was a jar of sour wine there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop, and held it up to his mouth.

30 When Jesus had received the wine, he said, "It is finished." Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
31 Then, because it was the day of preparation, the Jews did not want the bodies to stay on the cross on the Sabbath, for that Sabbath was a special high day.So they asked Pilate to have their legs broken and the bodies removed.

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

33 When they came to Jesus, they saw that he was dead already, so they did not break his legs.

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and immediately blood and water came out.

35 The one who saw this has testified, and his witness is true and he knows that what he said is true, so that you also may believe.

36 For these things happened, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "None of his bones will be broken."

37 Again another Scripture says, "They will look on the one whom they have pierced."

After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because of his fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus. Pilate gave him permission so he came and took away his body.

39 Nicodemus also came, who had first come to him at night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about seventy-five pounds.

40 So they took the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in linen cloths with the spices, according to the burial customs of the Jews.

41 Now at the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden there was a new tomb where no one had ever been laid.

42 Since it was the Jews' day of preparation, for the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.

1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw the stone taken away from the entrance.

2 So she ran and came to Simon Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him."

3 Then Peter and the other disciple went toward the tomb.

4 They both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb.

5 After stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.

6 Then Simon Peter also arrived, following him, and he entered the tomb.He saw the linen wrappings lying there,

7 and the face cloth, that was on his head, lying there but not with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a separate place by itself.
8 Then the other disciple, who came first to the tomb, also went in, and saw and believed.

9 For they still did not understand the Scripture, that Jesus must rise from the dead.

So the disciples went away again to their places of residence.

11 But Mary was standing outside at the tomb weeping.As she wept, she stooped down and looked into the tomb.

12 She saw two angels robed in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying.

13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She replied, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don't know where they have laid him."

14 When she had said this, she turned back, and saw Jesus standing, but she didn't realize that it was Jesus.

15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?" She, assuming he was the gardener, said to him, "Sir, if you have taken him somewhere, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."

16 Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him in Aramaic, "Rabboni," which means, "Teacher."

17 Jesus said to her, "Don't cling to me; for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go to my brothers, and tell them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God."

18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that he had said these things to her.

When it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them, and said to them, "Peace be to you."

20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.

21 Then Jesus said to them again, "Peace be to you.As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you."

22 After he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.

23 If you forgive anyone's sins, they are forgiven; if you retain anyone's sins, they are retained."

But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.

25 So the other disciples said to him, "We have seen the Lord." But he said to them, "Unless I see in his hands the nail prints, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."

26 After eight days his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood among them, and said, "Peace be to you."

27 Then he said to Thomas, "Reach here your finger, and see my hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into my side.Don't be faithless but believe."

28 Thomas exclaimed, "My Lord and my God."

29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed.Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believed."

30 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of the disciples, that are not written in this book.

31 But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in his name.

1 After these things Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias.Now he revealed himself like this.

2 Simon Peter, Thomas called Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples were together.

3 Simon Peter said to them, "I'm going fishing." They said to him, "We'll go with you." They went out and got into the boat.That night they caught nothing.

4 But at day break, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.

5 Then Jesus asked them, "Children, you don't have any fish, do you?" They replied, "No."

6 He told them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some fish." So they cast the net and were not able to pull it in because of the amount of fish.

7 Then that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around him (for he had nothing on under it), and jumped into the sea.

8 But the other disciples came in the boat dragging the net full of fish in, for they were not far from land, only one hundred yards out.

9 When they got to shore, they saw a charcoal fire there, and fish laid on it along with some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you've just caught."

11 Then Simon Peter went up, and pulled the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three.There were so many yet the net did not break.

12 Jesus said to them, "Come have some breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord.

13 Jesus came and took the bread, and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.

14 This was now the third time that Jesus showed himself to the disciples, after he had risen from the dead.

So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He replied, "Yes, Lord; you know I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."

16 Jesus said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He replied, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep."

17 Jesus said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" He replied, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.

18 I tell you the truth, when you were young, you dressed yourself, and walked wherever you wanted to, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you, and carry you where you don't want to go."

19 Now he said this indicating the kind of death by which Peter was going to glorify God. When he had said this, he told him, "Follow me."

Peter, turning around, saw the disciple Jesus loved following; the one who also leaned back on Jesus at the supper, and said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?"

21 So Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?"

22 Jesus said to him, "If I want him to stay alive until I come back, what is that to you? You need to follow me."

23 Because of this saying a rumor was spread among the brothers, that this disciple would not die.But Jesus did not tell him that he would not die; but, "If I want him to stay alive until I come back, what is that to you?"

24 This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.

25 Jesus did many other things which if they were all written down, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
