Thou hast made me know the ways of life, thou wilt fill me with joy with thy presence.

And on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any one thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He that believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of him shall flow rivers of living water. But he said this of the Spirit which those believing in him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet [given], because Jesus was not yet glorified.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you took and hung on a cross; him has God exalted, a Prince and Saviour at his right hand, to give a change of mind to Israel and the forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit which God has given to those that obey him.

And I tell you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you; for every one that asks, receives; and he that seeks, finds; and to him that knocks, it shall be opened. And what father is there of you, who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? or if he asks also for a fish, will for a fish give him a serpent? read more.
or if he asks also for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall the Father from heaven give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him.

And the apostles and elders were assembled together to see about this matter. And after there had been much debate, Peter rose and said to them, Men and brothers, you know that in former days God chose among you that the gentiles should hear by my mouth the word of the gospel and believe.

AND when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all with one mind together. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind borne along, and it filled all the house where they were sitting; and there appeared to them divided tongues as of fire, and [one] sat on each one of them; read more.
and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were Jews living at Jerusalem, pious men, of every nation under heaven; and when this sound was [heard], the multitude came together and were astonished, for they each one heard them speaking in his own language. And they were astonished and wondered, saying, Are not all these that speak Galileans? And how do we hear each one in our own language in which we were born, Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and those who live in Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Lybia about Cyrene, and the Roman strangers, both Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabs, do we hear them speak in our tongues of the great works of God. And they were all astonished and perplexed, saying one to another, What does this mean? But others mocking said, They are full of sweet wine. But Peter standing up with the eleven lifted up his voice and said to them, Men of Judea, and all who live at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and attend to my words. For these are not drunk as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day [9 A.M.], but this is what was said by the prophet; In the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and upon my male servants and upon my female servants in those days will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show prodigies in heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and a cloud of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and illustrious day of the Lord comes. And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus the Nazoraean, a man approved by God to you by mighty works and prodigies and miracles, which God performed by him in the midst of you, as you yourselves know, this man, delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have affixed to the cross, and killed by the hand of the wicked, him has God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, as it was not possible that he should be held by it. For David says of him, I saw the Lord always before me, he is on my right hand that I should not be moved; therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue was glad, and my flesh, moreover, shall also live in hope; for thou wilt not leave my soul in hades, nor suffer thy Holy One to see destruction.

And with many other words he testified and exhorted, saying, Save yourselves from this perverse generation. Then those that received his word were baptized, and there were added on that day about three thousand souls;

In the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and upon my male servants and upon my female servants in those days will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.

And Peter seeing it answered the people, Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this? or why do you look intently at us as if by our power or piety we had made him walk? The God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied before Pilate when he decided to release him; but you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked a murderer to be given you, read more.
but killed the Prince of life, whom God has raised from the dead, whose witnesses we are. And by the faith of his name, his name has made strong this man whom you behold and know, and the faith which is by him has given him this entire soundness before you all. And now, brothers, I know that you did it without knowledge, as did also your rulers; but what God had before declared by the mouth of all the prophets that his Anointed should suffer, he has so accomplished. Change your minds, therefore, and turn yourselves, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and he send to you Jesus Christ before appointed, whom heaven must receive till the times of the restoration of all things of which God has spoken by the mouth of his holy prophets since the world began. Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up to you, of your brothers, like me; him shall you hear in all things which he shall speak to you; and every soul which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from the people. And all the prophets, from Samuel and those following him in order, who have spoken, have also announced these days. You are the children of the prophets, and of the promise which God promised to our fathers, saying to Abraham, And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. God having raised up his servant has sent him to you first, to bless you by turning each [one of you] from your evil ways.

For what man of you wishing to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the expense, whether he has the means to finish? lest having laid its foundation, and not being able to finish, all who see ridicule him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish. Or what king going to engage in war with another king, does not first sit down and consult whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand? And if not, while he is yet a great way off, sending an embassy he desires conditions of peace. So, therefore, no one of you can be my disciple who does not forsake all that he has.


Then they said to him, What shall we do to perform the works of God? Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God; to believe on him whom he has sent.

And behold one came and said to him, Teacher, what good [work] shall I do that I may have eternal life? And he said to him, Why do you ask me of the good? one is the good. But if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments. He said to him, What? And Jesus said, this; You shall not kill; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not testify falsely; read more.
Honor your father and mother; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself. The young man said to him, All these have I kept; what do I lack yet?

And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? And Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, God. You know the commandments; You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not testify falsely, Honor your father and your mother. read more.
And he said, All these have I kept from my youth. And Jesus hearing it, said to him, One thing you yet want; sell all that you have, and distribute to the poor, and you shall have a treasure in heaven, and come, follow me. And when he heard these things he was sad; for he was very rich. And Jesus seeing him, said, With what difficulty do those who have riches enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to enter through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And those hearing him, said, And who can be saved?

Jesus answered and said to him, I tell you most truly, unless one has been born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said to him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he become an unborn infant of his mother a second time, and be born? Jesus answered, I tell you most truly, unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. read more.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is a spirit. Wonder not that I said to you, You must be born again. The Spirit breathes where it wills, and you hear its voice, but you know not whence it comes, nor whither it goes; so is every one that has been born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said to him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said to him, Are you a teacher of Israel and know not these things? I tell you most truly, that we speak what we know, and what we have seen we testify; and you receive not our testimony. If I have told you earthly things and you believe not, how will you believe if I should tell you heavenly things?


Does our law judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he does?

And the procurator making a sign to him to speak, Paul answered, Knowing that you have been for many years a judge of this nation, I shall defend myself cheerfully, you being able to know that it is not more than twelve days since I went up to worship at Jerusalem. And they did not find me in the temple disputing with any one, or making a disturbance of the multitude, neither in the synagogues nor in the city; read more.
neither can they prove the things of which they now accuse me. But this I confess to you, that in the way which they call a heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers; believing all things written in the law and the prophets, having a hope in God which they also hold, that there will be a resurrection both of the righteous and wicked.
