And he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like a flame of fire;

And he who sat there was like jasper and carnelian in appearance, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald.


You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

She continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment.

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

and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

In that day you will ask in my name. And I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;

but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.

But Peter said, "I do not have silver and gold, but I give you what I have; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."

And his name, by faith in his name, has made this man strong whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Jesus has given him perfect health in the presence of you all.

be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man stands before you healed.

always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


These will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with him are the called and chosen and faithful."

Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."

so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

And Jesus said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."

Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now my kingship is not from here."

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

But of the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of your kingdom.

Then the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever."


one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

God is faithful, by whom you were called into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."

God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.

And he said to them, "The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath."

because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we exist.

Therefore I tell you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.

Therefore he is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.

It is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinnersof whom I am the foremost.

God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.

From this man's descendants God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, as he promised.

but has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world.


For Christ also died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit;


Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for usfor it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"

But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.


so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation to those who are eagerly waiting for him.

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.






And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"

for he has regarded the lowly state of his servant; for behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.

rose from supper, laid aside his garments, took a towel and girded himself.

When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and see my hands. Reach out your hand, and put it into my side; do not be unbelieving, but believing."


But the Pharisees went out and plotted against him, how they might destroy him.

and they plotted to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him.

When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death.

But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

And he was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests the scribes and the leaders of the people sought to destroy him,

So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and officers, how he might betray him to them.

For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath.

Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, "What are we to do? For this man performs many signs.

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


Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven.

Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?"

Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how to entangle him in his talk.

The Pharisees came and began to argue with him, seeking from him a sign from heaven, to test him.

The Pharisees came and in order to test him asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"

Then they sent to him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch him in his words.

lying in wait for him, to catch at something he might say.

So they watched him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, that they might catch him on what he said, in order to deliver him up to the power and authority of the governor.

They said this to test him, that they might have something of which to accuse him. But Jesus bent down and wrote on the ground with his finger.






He was praying in a certain place, and when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: 'Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. read more.
And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.'" And he said to them, "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him'; and he will answer from within, 'Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything'? I tell you, though he will not get up and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as much as he needs. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"

Then he told them a parable, to show that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. He said: "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor regarded man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.' read more.
For a while he refused; but afterward he said to himself, 'Though I neither fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her justice, or she will wear me out by her continual coming.'" And the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you that he will bring about justice for them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"


Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas?

While he was still talking to the people, behold, his mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak to him.

Then his brothers and his mother came. And standing outside they sent to him, and called him.

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

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

For even his brothers did not believe in him.

Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the other apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?

But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother.






He was praying in a certain place, and when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: 'Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. read more.
And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.'" And he said to them, "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him'; and he will answer from within, 'Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything'? I tell you, though he will not get up and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as much as he needs. So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"

Then he told them a parable, to show that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. He said: "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor regarded man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.' read more.
For a while he refused; but afterward he said to himself, 'Though I neither fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her justice, or she will wear me out by her continual coming.'" And the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you that he will bring about justice for them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"


And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."

"Why does this man speak like this? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?"

And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"

But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, "Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath."

"Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat."

And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw him eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?"

they saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed.

And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner."

The Jews then began to murmur about him, because he said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven."


It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour,

If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there my servant will be also. If anyone serves me, him my Father will honor.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me may be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

We are confident, I say, and would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better;

Then we who are alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.



From that time Jesus began to show to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised on the third day.

and deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day."

But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee."

And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee."

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

To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would happen: that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles."


being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

Philip went down to a city of Samaria and proclaimed Christ to them.

Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this scripture he told him the good news of Jesus.

And immediately he began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues, saying, "He is the Son of God."

You know the word which he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all).

explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."

but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,

For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.


Now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught.

for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people.

And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

When Jesus went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began to teach them many things.

And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

Then he got into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat.

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

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


And when the apostles returned, they told him what they had done. Then he took them with him and withdrew apart to a city called Bethsaida.

And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,

And Jesus went on from there and passed along the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain, and sat down there.

After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.

Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them,

And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while." For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.

From there he arose and went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered a house, and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not be hidden.

And he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and knelt down and prayed,


I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."


Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me may be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.

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

Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am."

And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory which I had with you before the world was made.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest continually.


John answered them, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know.

Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?

He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world did not know him.

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

Then they said to him, "Where is your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father; if you knew me, you would know my Father also."

The man answered, "Why, this is a marvel! You do not know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes.

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

For those who live in Jerusalem and their rulers, because they did not recognize him nor the utterances of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, fulfilled these by condemning him.

No one who abides in him sins. No one who sins has either seen him or known him.


Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.

"If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you forever

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

Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.

Follow the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and all the saints,

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and rejoice with an inexpressible and glorious joy,


And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that he is the one appointed by God to be judge of the living and the dead.

teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

And this is his commandment: that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he has commanded us.

He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him."

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

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

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.

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



And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that through his poverty you might become rich.

Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.

For I tell you that this scripture must be fulfilled in me, 'And he was numbered with transgressors'; for what is written about me has its fulfillment."

In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken up from the earth."

but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to deatheven death on a cross.


Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him.

And blessed is he who is not offended because of me."

but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,


And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."

Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were by works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone,

and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall;" they stumble because they disobey the wordas they were desstined to do.


When Jesus had said this, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, "Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me."


And looking up to heaven he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened."

And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and said, "Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation."

And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it,

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.

Jesus wept.

"Now is my soul troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, for this purpose I came to this hour.


We know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

If with Christ you died to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you still belonged to it, do you submit to regulations such as,

As it is written: "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."

For we who live are always being given up to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Here is a trustworthy saying: if we died with him, we will also live with him;


Then Jesus said to them, "I shall be with you a little while longer, and then I go to him who sent me.

You have heard me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for the Father is greater than I.

But now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'

And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name the name you gave me that they may be one, even as we are one.

Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek me; and as I said to the Jews, 'Where I am going, you cannot come,' so now I say to you.

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

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

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


I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage! I have overcome the world."

When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep."

"Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me.

I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

Jesus turned, and when he saw her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that moment.

But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not be afraid; only believe."

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope by grace,


we must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work.

Last of all, he sent his son to them saying, 'They will respect my son,'

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

But I know him, for I am from him, and he sent me."

Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I have not come of my own accord, but he sent me.

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

For I have given them the words which you have given me, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.

that they all may be one, as you, Father, are in me, and I in you; that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.


Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and enter his glory?"

For I tell you that this scripture must be fulfilled in me, 'And he was numbered with transgressors'; for what is written about me has its fulfillment."

And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised."

But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished!

'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.'"

And he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,


Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and enter his glory?"

And he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up,


Therefore God also highly exalted him, and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


And he has on his robe and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name written on him which no one knows but himself.


"Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"

I, Paul, myself urge you, by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, I who am humble when face to face with you, but bold to you when I am away!

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.


But Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.

when he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he uttered no threats, but he trusted himself to him who judges justly.


and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,

I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who made the good confession before Pontius Pilate,

Pilate said to him, "You are a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say what I ama king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice."


Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and testify to what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony.

He testifies to what he has seen and heard; yet no one receives his testimony.

Jesus answered, "Even if I bear witness of myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going.


But a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit heard about him, and she came and fell at his feet.

And behold, a leper came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."

While he was saying these things to them, behold, a ruler came and knelt before him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her and she will live."

But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me!"

Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to him with her sons and, kneeling down, asked something of him.

Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name. And seeing him, he fell at his feet,

Then he said, "Lord, I believe!" And he worshiped him.



Moses said, 'The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; you shall listen to everything he tells you.

For I have given them the words which you have given me, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.

I have much to say about you and much to judge; but he who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him."

For I have not spoken on my own authority; but the Father who sent me gave me a command, what to say and what to speak.

Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me.

It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour,

And the people stood watching; but even the rulers sneered at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One."

Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I thirst."

So when Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished!" And he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he praised God, and said, "Certainly this was a righteous man!"


And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'

"He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me.

Whoever receives one little child like this in my name receives me.

"He who hears you hears me, he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me."

And he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?"

Thus, sinning against your brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.


For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,

"Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased! I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!"

And a voice came from heaven, "You are my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."

to the praise of his glorious grace, which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

So also Christ did not exalt himself to become a high priest, but it was he who said to him, "You are my son, today I have begotten you";


For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.




And again, when God brings the first-born into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."

Then those who were in the boat worshipped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."

And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Hail!" And they came to him and took hold of his feet and worshipped him.

On coming into the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they fell down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, and of frankincense, and of myrrh.

Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,

And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.


No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

"I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.

because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

"Therefore whoever acknowledges me before men, him I will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.

and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.


and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks better than the blood of Abel.

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

But as it is, he has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.

For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.

For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.

My little children, I write this to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.


And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might have the first place in everything.

And he put all things under his feet and gave him to be the head over all things for the church,

But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into him, who is the head, into Christ,

For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is himself the Savior.

and not holding fast to the head, from whom the whole body, nourished and held together by its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.


Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!

because we are members of his body.

Likewise, my brethren, you have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit to God.

I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.

Let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.


But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God." They all said, "Are you the Son of God, then?" He said to them, "You said what I am."

I and the Father are one."

If I do not do the works of my father, do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I am in the Father."

And he who sees me sees him who sent me.

If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; and from now on you know him and have seen him." Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us." Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? read more.
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

All that the Father has is mine. Therefore I said that he will take of what is mine and declare it to you.


For in him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,

And from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace.

And he put all things under his feet and gave him to be the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to become mature, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

For all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell in him


And with great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.

We are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but God raised him up on the third day and caused him to be seen, not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.

this man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put him to death. But God raised him up, having loosed the agony of death, because it was impossible for him to be held in its power.

But you disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, but killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.

And Paul went in, as was his custom, and for three weeks he reasoned with them from the scriptures, explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."


After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.


Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that through his poverty you might become rich.

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to deatheven death on a cross.


For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authoritiesall things were created through him and for him.

yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we exist.

All things were made through him, and without him nothing was made that was made.

and to make plain to everyone the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;

In the past God spoke to our fathers by the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the world.


He said, "Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, 'The Teacher says, my time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.'"

Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Then they sought to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.

Jesus answered them, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.

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

When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify you,


But the Pharisees said, "He casts out demons by the prince of demons."

But when the Pharisees heard this they said, "It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons."

But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebub, the prince of demons."

And they spoke many other things against him, blaspheming.

because they said, "He has an unclean spirit."

Is it not they who blaspheme the honorable name by which you have been called?


but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

And coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?


in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.


On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

But others fell on good soil, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold." When he had said this he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"

Then Jesus cried out, as he taught in the temple, "You know me, and you know where I am from; and I have not come on my own, but he who sent me is true, and him you do not know.

Then Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me.

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit.


While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!"

And behold, a voice from heaven, saying, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."

There is another who bears witness of me, and I know that the testimony which he bears of me is true.

And the Father who sent me has himself testified of me. You have never heard his voice, nor seen his form.

I am One who bears witness of myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness of me."

If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God which he has borne witness of his Son.


The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' But wisdom is justified by her deeds."

But the Pharisees said, "He casts out demons by the prince of demons."

And they began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man perverting our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ, a king."

They put forward false witnesses who said, "This man never stops speaking against this holy place, and the law;

But others were mocking and said, "They are full of sweet wine."

For we have found this man a pestilent fellow who stirs up dissension among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes.




I tell you that one greater than the temple is here.

The queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.

Therefore God also highly exalted him, and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,


Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,


You know the word which he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all).

For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,

and through him, to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.


And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And Jesus said to them, "Can the guests of the bridegroom mourn as long as he is with them? The days will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.

"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.

But at midnight there was a cry: 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'

He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now full.



And he said to them, "Why did you seek me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"

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

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

we must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work.

how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.


For it stands in scripture: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and he who believes in him will not be put to shame."


Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: 'The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?

He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which has become the chief cornerstone.

having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,


and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,

These will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with him are the called and chosen and faithful."

which he will bring about at the proper timehe who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

And he has on his robe and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

And he has on his robe and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.


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

But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to reign over us.'

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

But this is to fulfill the word that is wr
