I indeed baptize you with water to lead you to repentance; but he that cometh after me, is my superiour, whose shoes I am not worthy to carry: he shall baptize you with the effusion of the holy Ghost, in the appearance of fire:

but I must decline. he that cometh from above, is above all: he that is from the earth, is earthly, and his language is likewise earthly: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

you call me master, and lord: and you are in the right; for so I am.

therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

he himself is the head of the church, which is his body. he is the prince, the first-born from the dead, that in all things he might be chief.

He is so much superiour to the angels, as the authority he possesses is more excellent than theirs.

but as the architect is of much greater dignity than the house he has made; so the glory which Christ received was greater than that of Moses.

then an angel from heaven appear'd to him, and comforted him.

do you think my father, if I should now desire it of him, would not instantly send me more than twelve legions of angels?

All of a sudden an army of celestial beings join'd the angel, singing praises to God, and saying,

and when he re-introduces the first-begotten into the world, he saith, " and let all the angels of God worship him."

Then in my vision I heard the voice of many angels which surrounded the throne, the animals, and the elders: to the number of ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;


for Jesus Christ himself has already suffer'd for our sins, the innocent for the guilty, to bring us to God: who, tho' he died with respect to his body, was rais'd to life by that spirit,

and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood,

there cannot be greater love than that of a man, who lays down his life for his friends.

for Christ loved us, and for us gave himself an offering and a sacrifice acceptable to God.

that he might deliver us from the vices of this present age, according to the will of God, even our father: to

who gave himself for us, to redeem us from all iniquity, and qualify us to be his peculiar people, passionately affected to virtue.

for you are sensible of the beneficence of our Lord Jesus Christ; powerful as he was, for your sake he became poor, that you through his poverty might be made rich.

for then must he have suffered several times since the beginning of the world, when in the consummation of the ages, he has appeared once for all to expiate sin by offering himself as a sacrifice.

this is the proof of the divine love, Christ expos'd his life for us: and we ought to expose our lives for the brethren.


these things I have appriz'd you of, that ye might repose your confidence in me. the world shall give you trouble: but take courage, I have overcome the world.


a bruised reed shall he not break, and smoaking flax shall he not quench, till he hath made justice victorious.

and then will be the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God even the father; after having abolished all rule, and all authority, and power.

to him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my father in his throne.

and one of the elders said to me, weep not: behold, the lion of the tribe of Juda, the offspring of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Now to him that is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, conformable to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret from antient times, but now is laid open,

the mystery of piety is the pillar and basts of truth; and certainly most extraordinary. God has appear'd in the flesh, been justified by the spirit, seen by angels, proclaim'd to the Gentiles, believ'd by the world, and assum'd into glory.

that their hearts might be comforted, and that being firmly united in love, they might possess the highest and fullest persuasion of the truth of this doctrine, by entring into this mystery, even of God the father, and of Christ,

but we explain that mysterious plan of divine wisdom, which God had contriv'd before the ages, for our glory:

for he has discover'd to us the secret of his will, that out of his meer good pleasure, he had purposed in himself,

by the reading whereof you may perceive how far I am let into the secret of Christ.

to whom God does disclose the glorious advantages of this mystery to you Gentiles, to wit, "that by Christ you may have the expectation of glory."

put up your requests likewise for me, that God would give me an opportunity to declare the mystery of Christ (for which I am even in bonds:)


that is to say, master! Jesus said to her, touch me not: for I am not yet ascended to my father: but go to my brethren, and say to them, "I ascend unto my father and your father, even my God and your God."

for Christ is not entred into a sanctuary made by human art, such as is only representative of the true one, but into heaven itself, to appear from henceforth in the presence of God on our behalf:

who being ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God, where angels, dominations, and potentates have been subjected to him.

and while he was blessing them, he was taken from them, and carried up into heaven.

what if you should see the son of man ascend up where he was before?


wherefore 'tis said, " when he ascended up on high, he made a number of captives, and gave gifts to men."

After this discourse, while they beheld, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.

Now after the Lord had convers'd with them, he was assum'd up to heaven, where he sat on the right hand of God.

who is passed into the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold fast our profession. for we have












whosoever therefore shall be asham'd of me, and of my doctrine in this degenerate and corrupted age, of him likewise shall the son of man be asham'd, when he shall come with the glory of his father, accompanied with holy angels.

who is so great an impostor as he, who denies that Jesus is the Christ? he is antichrist, that denies the father and the son.

but ye renounced him that was holy and just; you interceeded for the life of a murderer,

Jesus replied, I tell you for certain, that this night before the time of cock-crowing, thou shalt abjure me thrice.

they make a profession of knowing God; but in fact they deny him, being execrably incredulous, and utter strangers to all virtue.

but whosoever shall renounce me before men, him will I also renounce before my father who is in heaven.

In the mean time Peter was sitting without in the court: and a servant maid came to him, and said, you likewise was one of Jesus the Galilean's comrades. but he denied it before them all, saying, I know nothing of the matter.

if we suffer, we shall also reign: if we renounce him,

As there were false prophets among the people of Israel, there will likewise be false doctors among you, who by introducing pernicious sects, and by renouncing the Lord, who bought them, will bring upon themselves swift destruction.


and he commanded us to publish, and to testify to the people, that he was the person whom God had constituted to be the judge of the living, and of the dead.

I conjure you in the name of God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is to judge the living and the dead, at his appearance in his kingdom,

therefore suspend your judgment till the Lord comes, who will bring to light the secrets of darkness, and expose the counsels of mens hearts: and then shall every man have his due reward from God.

then all nations shall be assembled before him, and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats.

besides, the father judgeth no man; but hath committed the full power of judging unto the son:

because he has fix'd the day, when he will judge in equity, by that man, whom he has appointed thereto: of which he has given full proof to all the world, by having raised him from the dead."

in the day, when according to my gospel, God shall judge the secret actions of men by Jesus Christ.

why then dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou think contemptibly of thy brother? since we shall all of us be brought before the judgment-seat of Christ.

but they will be call'd to account by him, who is ready to judge both the living and the dead.


who being ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God, where angels, dominations, and potentates have been subjected to him.

thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy peers."

therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Now after the Lord had convers'd with them, he was assum'd up to heaven, where he sat on the right hand of God.

but in a little time the son of man shall be seated on the powerful right hand of God.

him hath God rais'd by his power to be the author of salvation, by giving repentance to Israel, and the remission of their sins.

which he exerted in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at the head of his heavenly kingdom,

wherefore God has highly exalted and given him a name, which is above every name;

saying with a loud voice, "worthy is the lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing."


whence it was necessary he should be in all things like his brethren; that he might be a merciful high priest, and faithfully discharge the divine office of expiating the sins of the people.

and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood,

but as for you, the Lord, who is faithful, will establish you, and protect you from the malicious one.

Let us stedfastly maintain the hope which we have avow'd, since he is faithful that has promised:

he that has called you, is faithful, and this he will effect.

he will renounce us likewise: tho' we are diffident, he is still faithful, and will not retract his word.

Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse appear'd; and he that sat upon him was called the faithful and the true: in righteousness he judges and makes war:


nor with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood he enter'd once for all into the holy of holys, after having obtained for us an eternal redemption.

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us. (for it is written, " cursed is every one, that hangeth upon a tree.")

and they sung a new song, saying, "thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood, out of every tribe, and language, and people, and nation;

who gave himself for us, to redeem us from all iniquity, and qualify us to be his peculiar people, passionately affected to virtue.

being justified by his unmerited favour through the redemption that is by Jesus Christ:

for from him it is that ye believe in Christ Jesus, whom God has made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that,

It is by him, that we have obtain'd the redemption, even the remission of our sins:

considering, that it was not by such perishable things as silver or gold, that you were releas'd from those vain rites and customs impos'd upon you by your fathers,


it was not you that chose me, but I that chose you, and establish'd you, that your travels may be fruitful, and your fruit be lasting: so that whatever ye shall ask of the father for my sake, he will give it you.

this she did for several days, till Paul tir'd with it turn'd about, and said to the spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ I command you to quit her; and instantly he came out.

and if in my name ye shall ask any thing of the father, whereby he may be glorified by the son, I will effect it.

and that repentance and remission of sins should be preach'd in his name, among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

though then ye shall ask in my name: I need not promise, that I will pray the father for you;

but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Messias, the son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.

then Peter said, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I give thee: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk.

it is the faith which we have in him, that has procured strength to this man whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him, hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you entirely recover'd.

and this the burthen of the song, "thanks be to God, even the father, for his son Jesus Christ our Lord."







and was transfigured before them; his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

his head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; his feet were like fine brass,

he that sat, appear'd to the sight, like a jasper, and a sardine stone: and there was an arch like a rain-bow, round about the throne, which had the appearance of an emerald.


it was not you that chose me, but I that chose you, and establish'd you, that your travels may be fruitful, and your fruit be lasting: so that whatever ye shall ask of the father for my sake, he will give it you.

this she did for several days, till Paul tir'd with it turn'd about, and said to the spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ I command you to quit her; and instantly he came out.

and that repentance and remission of sins should be preach'd in his name, among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

though then ye shall ask in my name: I need not promise, that I will pray the father for you;

but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Messias, the son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.

then Peter said, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I give thee: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk.

and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you entirely recover'd.

and this the burthen of the song, "thanks be to God, even the father, for his son Jesus Christ our Lord."


they will make war with the lamb, but the lamb, who is lord of lords, and king of kings, together with those that are called, chosen, and faithful, shall overcome them.

I declare unto you, some are here present, who shall not die, till they have seen the son of man enter into his kingdom.

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

then said he to Jesus, Lord, remember me when you enter into your kingdom.

Jesus answered, my kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, I should have had my guards to prevent my falling into the hands of the Jews: whereas my kingdom is of another nature.

that at the name of Jesus both angels and men, the living and the dead, should pay their adorations,

but to the son he saith, "God is thy throne for ever and ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of equity.

The seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, crying, "the kingdom of this world is become the kingdom of our Lord, and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever."


there is but one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

for he, who has called you to the communication of his son Jesus Christ our Lord, will make good his promise.

therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

him hath God rais'd by his power to be the author of salvation, by giving repentance to Israel, and the remission of their sins.

the son of man, said he, may dispense even with the sabbath.

for if you openly confess, that Jesus is the Lord, and sincerely believe, that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

yet to us there is but one God, the father, from whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

wherefore I give you to understand, that no man who has the spirit of God, can pronounce Jesus anathema: and that no man can acknowledge Jesus to be the Lord, but by the holy spirit.


there is but one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

so that he has an uninterrupted power to save those, that come to God by him, because he ever lives to make intercession for them.

for the Lord Messiah your saviour is this day born, in the city of David:

for the son of man is come to seek, and to save that which was lost.

for God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

it is a proposition worthy to be believ'd, and be embrac'd by all, that Jesus Christ is come into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the greatest.

him hath God rais'd by his power to be the author of salvation, by giving repentance to Israel, and the remission of their sins.

it is of his posterity that God, pursuant to his promise, has rais'd up Jesus to be the saviour of Israel.

has now been display'd by the coming of Jesus Christ our saviour, who has defeated the power of death, by bringing a life of immortality to light thro' the gospel.

and we have seen, and do testify, that the father hath sent the son to be the saviour of the world.


for Jesus Christ himself has already suffer'd for our sins, the innocent for the guilty, to bring us to God: who, tho' he died with respect to his body, was rais'd to life by that spirit,


Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us. (for it is written, " cursed is every one, that hangeth upon a tree.")

but Jesus, who was for a while inferior to the angels by his sufferings and death, we see was crown'd with glory and honour; when by the divine goodness, he had pass'd thro' death for every man.

for he hath made him who knew no sin to be a sin-offering for us, that we might be justified by God thro' him.


so Christ being once offered up to take away the sins of many; he shall appear the second time, without making any further expiation to save those who expect him.

he himself cancel'd our sins by the crucifixion of his body, that we being set free from sin, might live in the service of virtue. it is by his bruises that you were healed:






which the Pharisees observing, why, said they to his disciples, is your master so familiar with publicans and such loose people?

for he hath regarded the low estate of his servant: and future ages shall proclaim me blessed.

rose from supper, laid aside his garment, and took a towel to wrap about him.

and when he had so said, he show'd them his hands and his side. the disciples were therefore extremely glad when they saw it was the Lord.

then said he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and examine my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.


Upon this the Pharisees went out of the synagogue, and form'd a conspiracy against his life.

and consulted how to seize Jesus by surprize, and take away his life.

As soon as it was day, all the chief priests and senators of the people consulted measures against Jesus how they might put him to death.

whereupon they fell into a rage, and consulted together, what measures to take against Jesus.

and he instructed the people daily in the temple, while the chief priests, the Scribes, and the rulers of the people, were contriving to take away his life.

accordingly he went and conferr'd with the chief priests and officers of the temple, about the method of seizing him.

upon which occasion the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he did such things on the sabbath-day.

upon this the chief priests and the Pharisees being assembled in council, said, what shall we do? for this man performs many miracles.

from that day therefore, they consulted together to put Jesus to death.


Then the Pharisees and the Sadducees came, with a captious design, and desired him to show them some miracle in the sky.

The Pharisees likewise came to him, and maliciously propos'd this question, may a man lawfully put away his wife at discretion?

Upon this the Pharisees withdrew, and consulted how they might insnare him in his discourse.

there the Pharisees being come, they began to dispute with him, and to try him, desir'd he would work some miracle in the sky.

then the Pharisees came and propos'd to him this insnaring question, is it lawful for a man to repudiate his wife?

Then they sent some of the Pharisees, and of the Herodians to insnare him in his discourse.

and draw something from his own mouth, that might be brought as evidence against him.

they watch'd then, and suborn'd spies, who under pretence of their tender consciences, might ensnare him in his discourse, and so betray him to the civil power and jurisdiction of the governor.

they said this only to ensnare him, that they might have some accusation against him. but Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.






One day Jesus had been praying in a certain place, and as soon as he had done, one of his disciples said to him, instruct us about prayer, as John the baptist instructed his disciples. he said therefore to them, when ye pray, say, "our father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. thy kingdom come. thy will be done, on earth, as in heaven. give us every day our portion of bread. read more.
and forgive us our sins: since we forgive every one that has offended us. and leave us not under temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Then he said to them, suppose any of you should go to his friend at midnight; and say to him, friend, lend me three loaves: for a friend of mine, a traveller, is come to my house, and I have nothing to entertain him with. and he within should give this answer, don't trouble me now: the door is made fast, and my family are all in bed: I can't get up to supply you. I tell you, tho' he will not rise, to supply him, out of friendship: yet out of regard to his importunity, he will rise, and lend him whatever he has occasion for. I tell you likewise, ask, and it shall be given: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and the door shall be opened. for every one that asketh, receives: he that seeketh, finds: and he that knocks has admittance. what father among you would give his son a stone, when he asketh for bread? or if for a fish, instead of a fish would he give him a serpent? or instead of an egg will he offer him a scorpion? if ye then, wicked as ye are, know how to give what is proper to your children: how much more shall your heavenly father give the holy spirit to them that ask him?

Jesus propos'd likewise this parable to them, to show that they should persevere in prayer, and not be discouraged. saying, in a certain city there was a judge, who neither feared God, nor regarded man. a widow was likewise there, who frequently came to him, saying, do me justice against my adversary. read more.
for some time he refus'd to do it: but at length he said in himself; tho' I neither fear God, nor regard man; yet, because this widow importunes me, I will do her justice, that she may'nt be continually coming to teaze me. observe, said Jesus, that language of this unrighteous judge. and will not God avenge his own elect, who cry to him night and day? will he delay their cause? I tell you, he will speedily avenge them. however, when the son of man comes, how few of the faithful will he find in the land?


is not this the carpenter's son? is not Mary his mother? and James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas, are they not his brothers?

Now while he was talking to the people, his mother and his brothers stood without, desiring to speak with him.

In the mean time his brothers and his mother came there, and not being able to get within hearing,

After this he went down to Capernaum, in company with his mother, his brethren, and his disciples: but they stay'd there only a few days.

his relations said to him, retire hence, and go into Judea, that your disciples there may also see the works that you do.

for even his brethren did not believe in him.

have not we the liberty to take a christian woman with us in our travels, as well as the rest of the apostles, as the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas did?

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






One day Jesus had been praying in a certain place, and as soon as he had done, one of his disciples said to him, instruct us about prayer, as John the baptist instructed his disciples. he said therefore to them, when ye pray, say, "our father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. thy kingdom come. thy will be done, on earth, as in heaven. give us every day our portion of bread. read more.

at which the Pharisees and Scribes murmured, saying, this man gives access to men of bad character, and eats with them.

why doth this man speak such blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God?

which the Pharisees observing, why, said they to his disciples, is your master so familiar with publicans and such loose people?

the Pharisees seeing that, said to him, see, your disciples are doing what is unlawful to do on the sabbath-day.

why do your disciples violate the tradition of our ancestors, in not washing their hands when they eat bread?

when the Scribes and Pharisees saw him eating with such a crew, they ask'd his disciples, what's the meaning that he is so familiar with people of such a wretched character?

when observing that some of his disciples were eating with profane hands, that is, without having wash'd them, they found fault.

upon seeing this, they all murmur'd, saying, he is going to be treated by a dissolute person.

The Jews then murmured against him, for having said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven."


Jesus answer'd, verily I tell you, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

if any man would serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my servant be: whoever serves me, him will my father reward.

and when I am gone, and have prepar'd a place for you, I will come again, to take you with me, that where I am there ye may be also.

father, I desire that they also whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am going; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me: for thou didst love me before the foundation of the world; yet,

) in this assurance, I say, I think it best to be quit of this body, and be present with the Lord.

I am doubly press'd between my desire to depart, in order to be with Christ, which is by far the best for ME;

then we, who shall be still alive, shall be convey'd together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall ever be with the Lord.



from that time began Jesus to let his disciples know that he should go to Jerusalem, there suffer many indignities from the senators, chief priests, and scribes, be put to death, and be raised again the third day.

and deliver him up to the Gentiles, to be insulted, scourged, and crucified: but the third day he shall rise again.

but after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

as they were going down the mountain, he order'd them not to tell any body what they had seen, till the son of man was raised from the dead:

but after I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

Jesus answered them, saying, destroy this temple, and within three days I will raise it up.

but by the divine favour I am still preserv'd alive, testifying to the small and to the great nothing but what Moses and the prophets have predicted should happen: "that Christ should suffer: that he should be the first that was to rise from the dead: and that he should enlighten both the Jews and the Gentiles."


being displeas'd that they taught the people, and maintain'd the resurrection from the dead in the person of Jesus.

Philip being arrived at Samaria, preached Christ to them.

then Philip enter'd upon the subject, and show'd how the whole passage was applicable to Jesus.

Immediately he maintained in the synagogues, that Jesus was the son of God.

this was what he communicated to the children of Israel, proclaiming salvation by Jesus Christ, who is the Lord of all mankind.

explaining them, and setting it to view, that the Messiah was to suffer and rise again from the dead: and that Jesus, whom he denounc'd to them, was that very Messiah.

we preach Christ crucified, an obstacle to the Jews indeed, and to the Gentiles foolishness: but to those who believe,

for we preach not our selves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, professing our selves your servants for his sake.


but about the middle of the feast, Jesus went publickly into the temple, and taught.

for he taught them, as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Thus went Jesus about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all sorts of diseases and infirmities among the people:

and he addressed himself to them in these instructions.

so that when Jesus landed, he found there a numerous assembly: which rais'd his compassion, because they were like so many sheep straggling without a pastor. whereupon he gave them various instructions.

for he preach'd in their synagogues with universal applause.

he went therefore aboard one of the vessels, which was Simon's, and desired him to bear away a little from land. then he sat down, and preached to the people from the ship.

who came to Jesus by night, and said to him, rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher sent from God: for no man can perform the miracles that you do, except God be with him.

but early in the morning he return'd to the temple, where all the people came to him; and being sat down, he instructed them.


The Apostles, upon their return to Jesus, acquainted him with what they had done. and taking them with him, he retired into a desart place over-against the city of Bethsaida:

and when he had dismiss'd them, he retired by himself to a mountain to pray: where he stay'd all alone till the latter part of the evening.

Jesus having left that place, drew nigh to the sea of Galilee, and went up a mountain, where he sat down.

After six days, Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, in private to the top of a high mountain.

As Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples in private, and said to them,

then Jesus said to them, come, let us retire privately to some place of solitude, to repose your selves a while. for such a crowd of people were continually coming and going, that they had not even time to eat.

Jesus leaving that place, went towards the frontiers of Tyre and Sidon; and entring into a house, desired to let nobody know it; but he could not be conceal'd.

At length he withdrew from them about a stone's cast, where falling upon his knees,


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


father, I desire that they also whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am going; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me: for thou didst love me before the foundation of the world; yet,

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

Jesus said to them, verily, verily I say unto you, before Abraham was I AM.

and now, O father, glorify me in heaven, with the glory which I had before the creation of the world.

and by him all things consist.

without father, without mother, without genealogy; his days have no beginning, and his life no end; but like the son of God, he was a perpetual priest.


John answered them, I baptize with water: but there is one among you, whom ye know not; he it is who coming after me,

Jesus said to him, have I been with you so long, and don't you know me yet? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father; why then do you say, shew us the father?

he was in the world, even the world that had been made by him, but the world knew him not.

Jesus answered her, if you knew the dispensation of God, and who it is that says to you, give me to drink; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water.

then said they to him, where is thy father: Jesus answered, ye neither know me, nor my father: if ye knew me, ye would have known my father also.

the man replied, that's very strange that he should make me see, and you should not know who sent him.

and thus will they treat you, because they have not known the father, nor me.

as for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and their senators, by their not knowing who he was, and by condemning him, they have accomplished the declarations of the prophets, which are read every sabbath-day:

whosoever adheres to him, sinneth not: whosoever sinneth, hath not seen him, he does not know him.


Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, why Lord, will you show your self to us, and not to the world? Jesus answered him, he that loves me, will observe my precepts: and my father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

if ye love me, keep my commandments. and I will pray the father, and he shall give you another advocate, to abide with you for ever;

for the father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I had my mission from God.

grace be with all those that have love uncorrupted for our Lord Jesus Christ. amen.

Keep that form of sound doctrine you receiv'd from me, which consists in christian faith and charity:

and thank my God for the account I have of your faith in the Lord Jesus and the love you bear to all the saints;

whom though you have not seen, you love: and though he is not now the object of your view, yet you believe in him, and triumph with such a laudable transport, as cannot be express'd:


and he commanded us to publish, and to testify to the people, that he was the person whom God had constituted to be the judge of the living, and of the dead.

teaching them to observe every thing which I have enjoin'd you: and be assured I shall be always with you to the end of the world.

now this is his commandment, that we believe in his son Jesus Christ, and that we love one another, as he commanded us.

he that hath received my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me, shall be beloved by my father, and I will love him, and shew my self unto him.

a new commandment I give unto you, "that ye love one another; that you would have the same love for one another as I have had for you."

if ye love me, keep my commandments.

your love to me will be in keeping my commandments: even as I love my father by keeping his commandments.

you will be my friends, if you do what I have commanded you.



and being brought to bed of her first born, she swathed him, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

for you are sensible of the beneficence of our Lord Jesus Christ; powerful as he was, for your sake he became poor, that you through his poverty might be made rich.

At the same time, two robbers were crucified with him: one on his right hand, the other on his left.

for take notice, that scripture, "and he was number'd among the transgressors," is yet to be accomplished in my person: and all that relates to me is going to be consummated.

in his humiliation he was judged, he was taken off: and who shall describe the men of his time? for the land has taken away his life."

by assuming the form of a servant: being made in the likeness of men, and his whole exterior showing nothing more than a meer man, he abased himself, and carried his submission so far as to die, even the death of the cross.


is not he the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joses, of Juda and Simon? are not these his sisters, who are here with us? and they were scandalized at him.

and happy is he who does not stumble at my appearance.

we preach Christ crucified, an obstacle to the Jews indeed, and to the Gentiles foolishness: but to those who believe,


and they were scandaliz'd at him. but Jesus said to them, a prophet is not without honour, except in his own country and in his own family.

why? because they sought it not by faith, but indeed by the works of the law: for they stumbled at that stumbling-stone;

and which the architects rejected, will be an occasion to the incredulous of their stumbling, and bruising themselves thereby:


When Jesus utter'd these words, he was troubled in spirit, and said without disguise, I assure you, that one of you shall betray me.


then looking up to heaven, with a sigh, he said, Ephphata, that is, be open:

but Jesus fetching a deep sigh, said, why does this generation require a sign? I assure you, they shall have none.

as he drew nigh, he beheld the city, and bewail'd its fate,

when Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, he sighed from his heart, and was troubled,

then Jesus wept.

"Now is my soul troubled; what! shall I say, father, save me from this concern? but for this cause am I come, even for this very concern.


considering this, that our vicious passions were crucified with him, that the body of sin being destroyed, we might not any longer be vassals to sin.

I am crucified with Christ, it is not I that now live, but Christ that liveth in me; the life I have in this body I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

If then you are dead with Christ, in respect of those shadows of the Jewish state; why do ye, as if you were still in that state, submit to those ordinances?

for as it is written, "for thy sake we are sacrificed every day; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter:"

for as long as I live I shall be exposed to death for the sake of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest by the preservation of our mortal life.

it is an undoubted truth, that if we die for him, we shall live with him:


then said Jesus, I shall be with you but for a little time, and then I shall go to him that sent me.

ye have heard me say, "I am going away, and shall come again unto you." if ye loved me, ye would rejoice at my going to the father: for the father is greater than I.

but now I am going to him that sent me; yet none of you ask me now, whither are you going?

and now I shall be no more in the world, but they will be in the world, when I am come to thee. holy father keep them by that authority, with which thou hast invested me, that they may be one, as we are.

my dear children, I am with you but for a little while. you shall seek me: but as I said to the Jews, so now I say to you, "where I am going you cannot come."

of justice, because I shall be with my father, and ye shall see me no more expos'd:

Within a little while ye shall not see me: but within a little while ye shall see me again, because I am going to the father.

I was sent by the father, and am come into the world: but now I leave the world, and am going to my father.


these things I have appriz'd you of, that ye might repose your confidence in me. the world shall give you trouble: but take courage, I have overcome the world.

when the Lord saw her, he was moved with compassion for her, and said to her, don't weep.

Let not your heart be troubled: you trust in God, trust also in me.

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

but Jesus turned about, and looking upon her, said, daughter lay aside your fears, thy faith hath cured thee: and the woman was cured from that instant.

Jesus, upon hearing that, immediately said to the ruler of the synagogue, "be not afraid, only believe."

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ, and God our father, who has loved us, and by his favour given us the advantageous hopes of eternal joys, consolate your souls,


I must perform the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night is coming, when no man can work.

but last of all, he sent his son, saying, they will reverence my son.

for I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.

but I know him, for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

Jesus said to them, if God were your father, ye would love me: for I was commissioned by God to come; I did not come of my self, but he sent me.

how can you say that I blaspheme, I whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, because I said I am the son of God?

for I have given to them the instructions which you gave me; and they have received them; and have sincerely believ'd that I came from thee, and are persuaded that thou didst send me.

that they all may be one, as thou, father, art in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


was not the Messiah to have suffer'd thus, and after that enter into his glory?

for take notice, that scripture, "and he was number'd among the transgressors," is yet to be accomplished in my person: and all that relates to me is going to be consummated.

At length he began to inform them, that the son of man should suffer many indignities, be rejected by the chief priests, Scribes, and senators, be even put to death, and after three days should rise again.

the son of man must suffer many indignities: be rejected by the rulers, the chief priests, and Scribes: be put to death: and the third day be raised again.

the baptism, which I am to undergo, how do I long till it be accomplished?

that the son of man must be deliver'd into the hands of sinful men; be crucified; and the third day rise again.

thus it is written, and thus it behov'd Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

but as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up:

wherefore God has highly exalted and given him a name, which is above every name; that at the name of Jesus both angels and men, the living and the dead, should pay their adorations, and that every nation should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, to the glory of God the father.


on the mantle about his thigh was this inscription, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

He is so much superiour to the angels, as the authority he possesses is more excellent than theirs.

you shall be now pregnant, and be delivered of a son, whom you shall name JESUS.

his eyes were as a flame of fire, on his head were many crowns: and a name inscrib'd which no one comprehended, but himself:


saying, " tell ye the daughter of Sion, behold, thy king cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting on an ass, even a colt, the fole of an ass."

I who am a person of a mean presence, when among you, but exert myself upon your account, when absent; I Paul intreat you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, not to let me exert that authority,

take my yoke upon you, and learn to be meek like me, and of an humble temper: and ye shall enjoy tranquillity of mind.


but Jesus said to him, put up your sword in its place: for all that take to the sword, shall perish by the sword.

who, when he was reviled, did not revile again: when he was in his sufferings, he did not threat, but referr'd his cause to the righteous judge.


and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood,

I enjoin you, before God, who gives life to all, and before Christ Jesus, who made a glorious confession before Pontius Pilate;

upon this Pilate said to him, you are then a king? Jesus answered, you say right, for I am a king. to this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, to persuade mankind of the truth. every one that loves truth is observant of my directions.


I declare unto thee, we speak what we know, and testify what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony.

and what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; but his testimony doth no man receive.

Jesus answered them, though I give testimony of my self, yet my testimony is valid: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but you do not know whence I came, nor whither I go.


for a woman, whose child was possess'd with an impure spirit, having heard of him, found him out, and throwing herself at his feet,

and there came a leper who threw himself at his feet, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Whilst he thus entertain'd them, the ruler of the synagogue came and made his address to him, saying, my daughter is upon the point of death: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

however she advanc'd, and throwing her self at his feet, cried, O Lord, assist me.

Then the mother of Zebedee's children, with her two sons, came and threw herself at his feet, desiring a favour of him.

when one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, came, and as soon as he saw him, fell at his feet,

then said he to Jesus, Lord, I believe: and prostrated himself before him.



for Moses said to the fathers, "a prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, of your brethren, like unto me; observe whatever he shall say to you.

for I have given to them the instructions which you gave me; and they have received them; and have sincerely believ'd that I came from thee, and are persuaded that thou didst send me.

I have many things to say against you: but I only say He that sent me is worthy of belief; and what I have heard of Him, that only I publish to the world.

for I have not spoken for my self; but the father who sent me, he commission'd me, what I should teach, and what I should speak.

don't you believe that I am in the father, and the father in me? the words that I speak unto you, I speak indeed, tho' not from my self; but as to the works, the father, who dwells in me, he is the agent.

he does not love me, who does not observe my precepts: for the doctrine which you have heard, is not mine, but the father's who sent me.

Jesus answer'd, verily I tell you, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

and Jesus said, "father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." then they divided his raiment among them by throwing lots,

then he said to the disciple, behold thy mother. and from that time 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 to say, "my God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?"

after this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be be fulfilled, said, I thirst.

when Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished: and bowing his head, he expir'd.

and Jesus cryed with a loud voice, saying, father, into thy hands I commend my spirit; and in pronouncing these words, he expired.


and the king will reply, I declare unto you, your having done this for one of the least of these my brethren, is the same thing as doing it for me.

He that receives you, receives me; and he that receives me, receives him that sent me.

and whoever shall receive one that is like such a child, in my name, receiveth me.

he that adheres to you, adheres to me; he that rejects you, rejects me: and he that rejects me, rejecteth him that sent me.

and he fell to the ground, and heard a voice which said to him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

but when you thus offend against the brethren, by wounding their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.


who has deliver'd you from the state of darkness, and has translated you 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 shall shew justice to the nations.

while he was speaking, a bright cloud surrounded them: and suddenly a voice broke out of the cloud, saying, "this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."

when this voice from heaven was heard, "thou art my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased."

to display the glory of his grace, which has render'd us acceptable by his beloved son:

Wherefore Christ himself did not assume the character of an high priest; but it was confirm'd by him that said, "thou art my son, to-day have I begotten thee."

Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse appear'd; and he that sat upon him was called the faithful and the true: in righteousness he judges and makes war:




and when he re-introduces the first-begotten into the world, he saith, " and let all the angels of God worship him."

then they that were in the ship, came and worshipped him, saying, of a truth thou art the son of God.

as they were making the way to his disciples, Jesus himself met them, and said, I salute you. and they came, and embraced his feet, and worshipped him.

and entring into the house, they saw the infant with Mary his mother, and prostrating themselves, they worshipped him: then opening their treasures, they presented him with gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

and they worship'd him, and with great joy return'd to Jerusalem,

when he had taken the book, the four animals, and the four and twenty elders fell down before the lamb, every one of them having harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints.


whosoever denieth the son, disowns the father:

moreover I declare unto you, whoever shall acknowledge me before men, him shall the son of man also own before the angels of God.

for if you openly confess, that Jesus is the Lord, and sincerely believe, that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

Whosoever therefore shall own me before men, him will I own likewise before my father who is in heaven.

and that every nation should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, to the glory of God the father.

whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.


to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the aspersion of that blood which cries for pardon, and not for vengeance as that of Abel.

for there is but one God, and but one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

Our high priest then has obtained a priesthood so much the more excellent, as he is the mediator of a better alliance, established upon better promises.

and for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that, the transgressions that were unexpiated by the first testament, being expiated by his death, they who are called might receive the eternal inheritance, which was promised.

for Christ is not entred into a sanctuary made by human art, such as is only representative of the true one, but into heaven itself, to appear from henceforth in the presence of God on our behalf:

My dear children, these things I write unto you, that ye may avoid sin. but if any man has failed, we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ the just.


he himself is the head of the church, which is his body. he is the prince, the first-born from the dead, that in all things he might be chief.

for he has subjected all things to him, and constituted him supreme head of the church,

but being sincere in mutual love, may be entirely united to Christ, who is the head:

for the husband presides over his wife, as Christ presides over the church: and he it is that preserves the whole body.

not adhering to the head, from which all the parts of the body derive its nutrition, and being firmly united together by its joints and ligaments, receives a divine increase.


Don't you know, that your bodies are parts of Christ's mystical body? now, how can that which is Christ's, be made the property of a very creature?

of which we are the several parts constituting his body.

thus, my brethren, the law is become dead with respect to you by the body of Christ; that you might be subject to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

for I am jealous over you with religious jealousy: since I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

adhere therefore to what ye have learnt from the beginning. if you adhere to what ye have heard from the beginning, you will still persist to own both the son and the father.


but in a little time the son of man shall be seated on the powerful right hand of God. then said they all, art thou then the son of God? you are in the right, answer'd he, for I am so.

I and my father are one.

if I do not the works of my father, believe me not. but if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know and believe that the father is in me, and I in him.

and he that contemplates me, contemplates him that sent me.

if you had known me, you would likewise have known my father: and from henceforth you shall know him, nay, you have seen him. Philip said to him, Lord shew us the father, and we are satisfied. Jesus said to him, have I been with you so long, and don't you know me yet? Philip, he that hath seen me, hath seen the father; why then do you say, shew us the father? read more.
don't you believe that I am in the father, and the father in me? the words that I speak unto you, I speak indeed, tho' not from my self; but as to the works, the father, who dwells in me, he is the agent.

all that the father has is mine: that is the reason of my saying, "he shall communicate to you the information that I shall give him."


for in him all divine plenitude does substantially reside.

and of his Plenitude have we all received, even abundant grace.

for he has subjected all things to him, and constituted him supreme head of the church, which is his body, a work compleatly finished in all its parts.

till being united in a perfect belief, and acknowledgment of the son of God, we grow up to that full state of maturity required by Christ:

for it seemed good to the father to inhabit the whole body of the church by Christ:


Great was the power by which the apostles attested the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and they were all greatly favoured by the people.

we are witnesses of all his transactions, both in Judea, and at Jerusalem. however, they put him to death, even that of the cross. but God raised him up the third day, and shewed him openly, not to all the people, but to those witnesses, which God had before chosen: to us, I say, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

but as to his holy spirit miraculously declared to be the son of God, by his resurrection from the dead:

him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by means of the wicked, have crucified and slain: whom God hath raised up, having delivered him from the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be overpower'd by it.

but ye renounced him that was holy and just; you interceeded for the life of a murderer, but killed the prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

Paul, as was his custom, us'd to go there, and for three sabbath-days discours'd to the Jews from the scriptures, explaining them, and setting it to view, that the Messiah was to suffer and rise again from the dead: and that Jesus, whom he denounc'd to them, was that very Messiah.


after that, he poured water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.


take my yoke upon you, and learn to be meek like me, and of an humble temper: and ye shall enjoy tranquillity of mind.

for you are sensible of the beneficence of our Lord Jesus Christ; powerful as he was, for your sake he became poor, that you through his poverty might be made rich.

and his whole exterior showing nothing more than a meer man, he abased himself, and carried his submission so far as to die, even the death of the cross.


for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are on earth, both visible and invisible, the thrones, and the sovereigntys, the principalitys, and the powers: all were created by him, and for him: he is before all things,

yet to us there is but one God, the father, from whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

all things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made.

and display to all the world that mysterious dispensation, which from all past ages has been conceal'd in the secret purpose of God, who created all things:

God who at sundry times, and in divers manners, spake in time past to the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his SON, whom he hath constituted heir of all things, by whom also be made the world.


and he said, go into the city to such a man, and say to him, the master sends you word that his time is at hand, and he designs to keep the passover now at your house with his disciples.

and at his return, he said to his disciples, is this a time to sleep and take your rest? the hour draws nigh, and the son of man is betrayed into the hands of the gentiles.

then they design'd to seize him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

but Jesus answered them, saying, the time is come, when the son of man is to be glorified.

Now before the feast of the passover, Jesus perceiving that his hour was come, when he was to pass out of this world, and go to the father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

Jesus having said this, lift up his eyes to heaven, and said, "father, the hour is come; glorify thy son, that thy son also may glorify thee.


but the Pharisees said, he casteth out devils by the authority of the prince of the devils.

but the Pharisees upon hearing this said, he exorcizes devils, by virtue only of Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

but some of them said, he casteth out demons by Beelzebub the prince of the demons.

and besides all this, they loaded him with the most impious invectives.

this was in answer to their saying, he was influenc'd by an impure spirit.

they who blaspheme that sacred name by which you are distinguish'd?


both Jews and Gentiles, he is the Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

and the child grew in stature and in all the improvements of the mind; he was stor'd with wisdom, and was the object of divine favour.

and when he was come into his native country, he taught them in their synagogue, in such a manner that they cry'd out with astonishment, how came this man by all this wisdom, and extraordinary power?


in whom are reserv'd all the treasures of wd om and knowledge.


In the last day, the most solemn day of the feast, Jesus being there, raised his voice, and said, if any man thirst, 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 to say, "my God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?"

but some of the corn fell into good soil, and grew up, yielding a hundred grains for one. then raising his voice he concluded with these words, he that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Jesus then pursuing his discourse in the temple, rais'd his voice, and said, you know both who I am, and whence I am: however, I am not come of my self, but he that sent me is worthy of belief, him you are unacquainted with.

Then Jesus rais'd his voice, and said, he that believeth on me, does not so much believe on me, as on him that sent me.

but Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and then expir'd.


while he was speaking, a bright cloud surrounded them: and suddenly a voice broke out of the cloud, saying, "this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."

of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: at the same time a voice was heard from heaven, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

there is another who testifies of me, and I know that the testimony which he gives of me, is true.

and the father who sent me, hath himself born witness of me. his voice you have never heard, nor ever seen his appearance,

I indeed do bear testimony of my self, but the father, who has sent me, beareth witness of me likewise.

if we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: now this is the testimony, which God has given us of his son.


the son of man does not abstain from eating and drinking, and they cry there's a glutton, and a sot, a friend of publicans and sinners: "but wisdom is justified by her children."

but the Pharisees said, he casteth out devils by the authority of the prince of the devils.

and thus they began their charge, we found this man subverting our nation, opposing the giving tribute to Cesar, asserting that he himself is Christ the king.

where they produc'd false witnesses, who said, this man is continually inveighing against the holy place, and against the law.

others in derision said, these men are full of sweet wine.

this man is known to be a pernicious fellow that goes about the world to raise seditions among the Jews: he is the ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes,




now I tell you, that the work now in hand, is of greater consequence than that of the temple.

the queen of the south shall rise up in the day of judgment against this generation, and condemn it: for she came from the remote parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; but now, a greater than Solomon is here.

wherefore God has highly exalted and given him a name, which is above every name; that at the name of Jesus both angels and men, the living and the dead, should pay their adorations,


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


this was what he communicated to the children of Israel, proclaiming salvation by Jesus Christ, who is the Lord of all mankind.

for he is our peace-maker, who hath united both Jew and Gentile, and hath by his flesh broken down the middle wall of partition

and having made peace by the blood of his cross, to reconcile all things to himself, both those in heaven, and those upon earth.


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

Jesus answer'd them, can the bride-men mourn, while the bridegroom is with them? the day indeed will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then will be the time to fast.

The kingdom of the Messiah will then be such, as when ten virgins took their lamps, and went out to meet the bridegroom.

and at midnight there was a sudden cry, see the bridegroom comes; go and meet him.

the bridegroom is he that hath a right to the bride: as for the friend of the bridegroom, who is nigh his person and heareth him, he greatly rejoyces at the voice of the bridegroom: upon this account my joy is compleat.



Jesus replied, why were ye so sollicitous about me? don't you know that 'tis my business to be in my father's house?

which put his disciples in mind of that passage, "my zeal for thine house does prey upon me."

Jesus said to them, my meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

I must perform the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night is coming, when no man can work.

how Jesus of Nazareth divinely inspired by the holy spirit, and with miraculous power, went about doing good, and healing all that were under the oppression of the devil: because God was with him.


wherefore it is said in the scripture, I lay in Sion the principal stone of the angle, a choice one of great value: he that


Jesus reply'd, did ye never read in the scriptures, " that very stone which the builders rejected, is become the principal stone of the angle, this the Lord effected, and it is marvellous in our eyes."

this is the stone which was rejected by you builders, but is become the chief of the angle.

being built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, whereof Jesus Christ himself is the main stone of the angle:


and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood,

they will make war with the lamb, but the lamb, who is lord of lords, and king of kings, together with those that are called, chosen, and faithful, shall overcome them.

whose advent HE will in his own time display, WHO is perfectly happy, who alone is omnipotent, the king of kings, and the lord of all that bear rule;

on the mantle about his thigh was this inscription, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.


and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth: unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood,

on the mantle about his thigh was this inscription, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.


if the world hate you, consider that it hated me before it hated you.

whereupon they fell into a rage, and consulted together, what measures to take against Jesus.
