Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations, immersing them (the disciples) into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo; I am with you all the days, even to the end of the age.

And he appointed twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, and to have authority to cure diseases, and to cast out demons.

And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them out, two and two, and gave them authority over unclean spirits.

And he said to them: Wherever you enter a house, there make your home till you depart from that place. And whoever will not receive you, nor hear you, when you go out from that place, shake off the dust under your feet, for a testimony against them. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.


And he called his twelve disciples to him, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure dis eases: and he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

When, therefore, they had taken breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter: Simon, son of Jonah, Do you love me more than these? He said to him: Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Feed my lambs. He said to him again a second time: Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me? He said to him: Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Be a shepherd to my sheep. He said to him a third time: Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, Do you love me? And he said to him: Lord, thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus said to him: Feed my sheep. read more.
Verily, verily I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself, and walked whither you chose; but when you have become old, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another shall gird you, and lead you whither you would not.

I charge you, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom,





who show that the work which the law requires, is written in their hearts, their conscience bearing testimony, and their reasonings with each other accusing, or making excuse.

But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you despise your brother? For we all shall stand before the judgment-seat of the Christ.





















Now when Jesus had risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven demons. And she went and told it to those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And though they heard that he was alive, and had been seen by her, they did not believe. read more.
After this he appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest. But they did not believe them. Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen. And he said to them: Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that this is he who has been appointed by God as the judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets bear testimony, that whoever believes on him shall receive remission of sins through his name.



Therefore I say to you, That every sin and impious speech shad be forgiven men: but the impious speech against the Spirit shall not be forgiven men. And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be for given him, either in the present age, or in that which is to come.

And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but he that speaks impiously against the Holy Spirit, shall not be forgiven.


Is any one among you sick? let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil, in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick; and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.


Verily I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever impious speeches they may utter;

And Jesus answered and said to him: Simon, I have some thing to say to you. He replied: Teacher, say on. A certain creditor had two debtors; the one owed him five hundred denarii, the other, fifty. But as they had nothing to pay, he forgave them both. Which of them, then, will love him the more? read more.
Simon answered and said: I suppose he to whom he forgave the more. He said to him: You have decided correctly. And turning toward the woman, he said to Simon: Do you see this woman? I entered your house, you gave me no water for my feet; but she has washed my feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss; but she, from the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil; but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much. But he to whom little is forgiven, loves little. And he said to her: Your sins are forgiven.

that word, you know, which was published through the whole of Judea, beginning from Galilee, after the immersion that John preached; how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit, and with power; who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all that he did, both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew by hanging him on a tree. read more.
Him God raised up the third day, and caused him to appear, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were be fore appointed by God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him, after he rose from the dead.

Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly things in Christ, according as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him in love, having predestinated us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will, read more.
for the praise of the glory of his grace, by which he has shown us favor in the Beloved, in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the remission of sins, according to the riches of his grace,

giving thanks to the Father, who has made us fit for a portion of the inheritance of the saints in light: who has delivered us from the authority of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins;


And Peter opened his mouth, and said: In truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons; but, in every nation, he that fears him and works righteousness is accepted by him. The word which he sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, (he is Lord of all,) read more.

To him all the prophets bear testimony, that whoever believes on him shall receive remission of sins through his name. While Peter was speaking these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all that heard the word. And the believers that were of the circumcision, as many as had come with Peter, were astonished, because on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit:

Simeon has declared how God, at the first, did visit the Gentiles, in order to take out from among them a people for his name.

Yet the times of this ignorance God overlooked; but now, he commands all men everywhere to repent: because he has appointed a day in which he will judge the world, in righteousness, by the man whom he has chosen, giving to all assurance of this, by having raised him from the dead.

because you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver or gold, from your vain mode of life received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without spot and blemish, who was indeed foreordained before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for you,

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me at that day; and not to me only, but to all those who love his appearing.

THAT which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled concerning the Word of life; (the life also was manifested, and we have seen, and do testify, and declare to you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested to us;) that which we have seen and heard, we declare it to you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

But Peter and the apostles answered and said: "We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers has raised up Jesus, whom you slew by hanging him on a tree. Him has God exalted to his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior, in order to give to Israel repentance and remission of sins: read more.
and we are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit also, whom God has given to them that obey him.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came as a witness, to testify of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not the Light; but he came to testify of the Light. read more.
He was the true Light, which, coming into the world, gives light to every man. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came to his own country, and his own people received him not. But as many as received him, to them he gave the privilege of be coming the children of God, even to those who believe on his name; who were begotten, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the "WORD became flesh, and tabernacled among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and of truth. John testified of him, and cried, saying: This is he of whom I said: He that comes after me, is now before me, for he existed before me.

that all may honor the Son, as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son, honors not the Father who sent him. Verily, verily I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has eternal life, and comes not into condemnation, but has passed from death into life. Verily, verily I say to you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear, shall live. read more.
For as the Father has life in himself, so has he given to the Son also to have life in himself; and he has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Be not astonished at this; for the hour is coming in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me. If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not worthy of credit. There is another that testifies concerning me, and I know that the testimony which he testifies concerning me is worthy of credit. You sent to John, and he bore testimony to the truth. But I receive not testimony from man; yet I say these things that you may be saved. He was the burning and shining lamp; and you were willing, for a time, to rejoice in his light. But I have testimony greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has given me to finish, these very works which I do, testify concerning me, that the Father has sent me. And the Father, who sent me, has testified concerning me. You have, neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And his word you have not remaining in you; for whom he has sent, him you believe not. You search the scriptures, because in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify concerning me: and yet you refuse to come to me, that you may have life. I receive not honor from men. But I know you, that you have not the love of God in you. I have come in my Father's name, and you receive me not; if another should come in his own name, him you would receive. How can you believe who receive honor one from another, and seek not the honor that comes from God alone? Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, Moses, in whom you trust. For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words?



Therefore, when they came together, they asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? But he said to them: It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has reserved under his own control. But you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses for me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the most distant part of the earth. read more.
And when he had spoken these things, while they were looking on him, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were looking earnestly to ward heaven, as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white raiment, who also said: Men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, shall come in the same manner in which you saw him go into heaven.

And while he was holding to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch called Solomon s, greatly astonished. But when Peter saw it, he answered the people: Men of Israel, why are you astonished at this? or, why do you look so earnestly on us, as if by our own power or godliness we had caused this man to walk? The God of Abra ham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus, whom you delivered up, and whom you rejected in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to release him. read more.
But you rejected the Holy and Just One, and demanded that a murderer should be given to you; and you slew the Author of life, whom God has raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.

SIMON PETER, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained faith, equally as precious as our own, in the plan of justification revealed by our God and Savior Jesus Christ: grace be to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgment of God, and Jesus our Lord. As his divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the acknowledgment of him who has called us by his glorious power, read more.
through which things very great and precious favors that were promised have been given us, that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through desire: so, even for this very purpose, uniting to these things all diligence, add to your faith, virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; and to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if these things be in you, and abound, they cause you to be neither idle, nor unfruitful as it respects the acknowledgment of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he who is wanting in these things is blind, and closes his eyes, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Wherefore, brethren, give the greater diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you will never fall. For thus will an entrance be given you abundantly into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Wherefore, I will not neglect to remind you always of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth. Indeed, I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to arouse you by putting you in remembrance. For I know that the putting off of this my tabernacle is near at hand, even as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me. But I will earnestly endeavor that you may be able, even after my decease, to have these things always in remembrance. For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; but we were eye-witnesses of his majesty.

THE Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him, that he might show to his servants the things that must shortly come to pass; and he sent it by his angel, and made it known to his servant John, who bore testimony to the word of God, and recorded the testimony of Jesus Christ, what ever things he saw.
