Then if ye should see the Son of man ascending where he was before?




God, who formerly spoke in many portions and in many ways to the fathers by the prophets, spoke to us in these last days by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the ages.

But toward the Son, Thy throne, O God, is into the age of the age. The scepter of thy kingdom is a scepter of straightness. Thou have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness.

before the mountains were settled, before the hills. I was brought forth while as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the beginning of the dust of the world. When he established the heavens, I was there. When he set a circle upon the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when the fountains of the deep became strong, when he gave to the sea its bound that the waters should not transgress his commandment, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was by him, a master workman. And I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him, rejoicing in his habitable earth. And my delight was with the sons of men. Now therefore, ye sons, hearken to me. For blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and do not refuse it. Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For he who finds me finds life, and shall obtain favor of LORD. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.

Indeed have this way to think in you, that also was in Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal to God something to seize and hold. But he emptied himself, having taken a form of a bondman, having become in a likeness of men.

Because in him all things were created, things in the heavens and things upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or lordships or principal offices or positions of authority, all things have been created And he is before all, and in him all things hold together.

Since therefore the children have partaken of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise shared the same things, so that through death he might make him who has the power of death impotent, that is, the devil.

Jesus replies, He is that man to whom I, having dipped the morsel, will give. And when he dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath. The cup that the Father has given me, shall I, no, not drink it?




Who has no need to offer up sacrifices each day, as those high priests, first for his own sins, then for those of the people, for this he did, once, when he offered up himself.

Because of this the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, so that I may take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down by myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. I received this commandment from my Father.

I glorified thee on the earth. I finished the work which thou have given me that I should do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things, as many as thou gave me are from thee. Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me. I pray about them. I do not pray about the world, but about whom thou have given me, because they are for thee. And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name that thou have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name. Whom thou gave to me, I kept, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of destruction, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee. And I speak these things in the world, so that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. I have given them thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

And LORD said to me, They have well said that which they have spoken. I will raise up a prophet for them from among their brothers, like thee.

Jesus therefore said to them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then ye will know that I am he, and I do nothing from myself, but I speak these things as my Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me. The Father has not left me alone, because I always do things pleasing to him.

And Jesus cried out and said, He who believes in me, believes not in me, but in him who sent me. And he who sees me sees him who sent me. I have come a light into the world, so that every man who believes in me may not remain in the darkness. read more.
And if any man hears my sayings, and will not believe, I do not judge him, for I came not so that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings, has that which judges him: the word that I spoke, that will judge him in the last day. Because I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me, he gave me commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. Therefore what things I speak, just as the Father has said to me, so I speak.

I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you.

His disciples say to him, Lo, now thou speak plainly, and speak not one veiled word. Now we know that thou know all things, and have no need that any man should question thee. By this we believe that thou came forth from God. Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? read more.
Behold, the hour comes, and now has come, that ye will be scattered, each man to his own things, and ye will leave me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken to you, so that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye have tribulation. But cheer up, I have overcome the world.

I indeed made the former treatise, O Theophilus, about all things that Jesus began both to do and to teach, until a day in which he was taken up, having commanded, through Holy Spirit, the apostles whom he chose, to whom he also presented himself living, after his suffering, by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days, and speaking the things about the kingdom of God.

If I then, the Lord and the teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash each other's feet.

Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: He was led as a sheep to slaughter, and as a lamb, mute before shearing him, thus he opened not his mouth.

Then I said, Lo, I have come. In the volume of a book it is written of me. I delight to do thy will, O my God. Yea, thy law is within my heart. I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly. Lo, I will not refrain my lips. O LORD, thou know.

But Jesus answered them, My Father works until now and I work. Because of this therefore the Jews sought even more to kill him, because not only did he relax the Sabbath, but also he called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.

For whatever he may do, the Son also does these things in like manner. read more.
For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that he himself does. And he will show him works greater works than these, so that ye may marvel.

Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will, no, not hunger, and he who believes in me will, no, not ever thirst.

Because I have come down from heaven, not so that I might do my will, but the will of him who sent me.

But the helper, the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be cowardly. Ye heard that I said to you, I go, and I come to you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced because I said I go to the Father, because my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, ye might believe. I will no longer speak many things with you, for the ruler of the world comes. And he has nothing on me, but that the world may know that I love the Father. And as the Father commanded me, thus I do. Arise, let us go from here.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life.

He who says, I know him, and does not keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in this man. But whoever keeps his word, truly in this man the love of God is fully perfected.

And anything whatever ye may ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye will ask me anything in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more, but ye see me. Because I live, ye will also live. In that day ye will know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

For notice your calling, brothers, that not many are wise according to flesh, not many powerful, not many eminent. But God chose the foolish things of the world, so that he might humiliate the wise, and God chose the weak things of the world, so that he might humiliate the powerful.

Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, having seen that his hour has come that he would depart out of this world to his Father, having loved his own in the world, he loved them to the end.

But the grace was given to each of us, according to the measure of the gift of the Christ. Therefore he says, Having ascended on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men. And what is the ascended, except that he also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? read more.
He who descended is also the same man who ascended high above all the heavens, so that he might fill all things.

Which counterpart--immersion--now also saves us, not the putting away of filth of flesh, but an appeal of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, agents, and positions of authority, and powers having been subordinated to him.

And I looked, and lo, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with it a number, a hundred and forty-four thousand, having its name and the name of his Father, written on their foreheads.

And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four beings, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, like it had been killed, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God being sent forth into all

And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and it had two horns similar to a lamb, and it spoke like a dragon.

After these things, I looked and lo, a great multitude, which none could number, out of every nation, and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palms in their ha and crying out in a great voice, saying, Salvation is in our God who sits upon the throne, and in the Lamb!

And Gideon saw that he was the agent of LORD. And Gideon said, Alas, O lord LORD! Inasmuch as I have seen the agent of LORD face to face. And LORD said to him, Peace be to thee.

one body, and one Spirit. Just as also ye were called in one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one immersion, one God and Father of all. He is over all, and through all, and in us all.

Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye did not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name, these testify about me. But ye do not believe, for ye are not of my sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. read more.

Jesus answered and said to him, If any man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make a dwelling with him.

But the helper, the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be cowardly. Ye heard that I said to you, I go, and I come to you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced because I said I go to the Father, because my Father is greater than I.


Now I praise you, brothers, that ye remember me in all things and keep the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. But I want you to know that the head of every man is the Christ, and the head of a woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.

What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon, and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life (and the life was made known, and we have seen, and testify, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father, and was made known to us), what we have seen and heard we also declare to you, so that ye also may have fellowship with us.

who is an image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Because in him all things were created, things in the heavens and things upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or lordships or principal offices or positions of authority, all things have been created And he is before all, and in him all things hold together.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only TRUE God, and Jesus Christ whom thou sent. read more.

And many multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, crippled, and many others. And they placed them beside Jesus' feet, and he healed them,

And in the same hour he healed many from diseases and plagues and evil spirits. And he granted sight to many blind men.

This man came to him by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that thou have come a teacher from God, for no man can do these signs that thou do if God is not with him.

And having come forth, Jesus saw a great multitude, and he felt compassion toward them, and healed the feeble of them.

And Jesus went around all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the good-news of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. And his fame went forth into all Syria. And they brought to him all those faring badly with various diseases, and gripped with pain, and being demon-possessed, and being lunatic, and paralyzed. And he healed them.

And he healed many who were faring badly with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he did not allow the demons to speak, because they had recognized him.

Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover during the feast, many believed in his name seeing his signs that he did.

And having come down with them, he stood on a level place. And a company of his disciples, and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the maritime Tyre and Sidon, were those who came to hear him, and to be h also those who were afflicted with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And all the multitude sought to touch him, because power came forth from him, and healed them all.


And he said, Truly I say to you, if ye are not turned, and become as children, ye will, no, not enter into the kingdom of the heavens. He therefore who will make himself lowly as this child, this man is the greater in the kingdom of the heavens.

And he said to them, Ye are from below, I am from above. Ye are of this world, I am not of this world.

He set forth another parable to them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is compared to a man sowing good seed in his field. But while the men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares in the midst the wheat, and went away. And when the blade sprouted and produced fruit, then the tares also appeared. read more.
But the bondmen of the house-ruler having come, they said to him, Sir, did thou not sow good seed in thy field? From where then does it have tares? And he said to them, A hostile man did this. And the bondmen said to him, Do thou desire therefore, after going, we would gather them up? But he said, No, lest while gathering up the tares, ye uproot the wheat together with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest. And at the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles in order to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn. He set forth another parable to them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is like a grain of mustard plant, which having taken, a man sowed in his field. Which indeed is smaller than all seeds, but when it is grown, it is greater than the plants, and becomes a tree, so as for the birds of the sky to come and lodge in the branches of it. He spoke another parable to them. The kingdom of the heavens is like leaven, which having taken, a woman hid in three measures of meal until it was all leavened. Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the multitudes, and he did not speak to them independent of a parable, so that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, which says, I will open my mouth in parables. I will utter things concealed from the foundation of the world. Then having sent the multitudes away, Jesus came into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. And having answered, he said to them, He who sows the good seed is the Son of man, and the field is the world, and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of evil. And the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are heavenly agents. As therefore the tares are gathered up and burned in fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of man will send forth his agents, and they will gather out of his kingdom all the stumbling-blocks, and those doing lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. Again the kingdom of the heavens is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man having found, he hid. And from the joy of it, he goes and sells all, as many things as he has, and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a merchant, seeking fine pearls. Who, having found one very valuable pearl, after departing, sold all, as many things as he had, and bought it. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered from every kind, which, when it was full, after dragging to the shore, having sat down, they gathered the good into vessels, but they cast out the useless. So it will be at the end of the age. The heavenly agents will come forth, and separate the bad from among the righteous, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. Jesus says to them, Have ye understood all these things? They say to him, Yes, Lord.

nor will they say, Lo, here! or, Lo, there! For behold, the kingdom of God is inside of you.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world my subordinates would have fought so that I would not be delivered to the Jews, but now my kingdom is not from here. Pilate therefore said to him, Then thou a king? Jesus answered, Thou say that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I would testify to the truth. Every man who is of the truth hears m

So that henceforth we know no man according to flesh, and even if we have known Christ according to flesh, yet now we know him no longer. So then if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.

For though walking in flesh, we do not war according to flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for the demolition of strongholds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought captive into the obedience of the Christ,



But ye are those who have continued with me in my trials.


And straightaway the Spirit drives him forth into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild beasts. And the heavenly agents served him.

For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings thou abhor shall be forsaken.

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward he was hungry. And after he who tempts came, he said to him, If thou are the Son of God, speak so that these stones may become bread. read more.
But having answered, he said, It is written, Man will not live on bread alone, but on every word coming out through the mouth of God. Then the devil takes him into the holy city, and stands him on the pinnacle of the temple. And he says to him, If thou are the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written, He will command his agents about thee, and, They will take thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said to him, Again it is written, Thou shall not challenge Lord thy God. Again, the devil takes him onto an exceedingly high mountain, and shows him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. And he says to him, All these things I give thee, if after falling down, thou will worship me. Then Jesus says to him, Get thee behind me, Satan, for it is written, Thou shall worship Lord thy God, and him only thou shall serve. Then the devil leaves him, and behold, heavenly agents came and served him.

And Jesus, full of Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted forty days by the devil. And he ate nothing in those days, and when they were ended, afterward he was hungry. And the devil said to him, If thou are the Son of God, speak to this stone that it may become bread. read more.
And Jesus answered, saying to him, It is written, Man will not live on bread alone, but on every saying of God. And having brought him onto a high mountain, the devil showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to him, I will give to thee all this authority, and the glory of them, because it has been delivered to me, and to whomever I want I give it. If therefore thou will worship before me, it will all be thine. And having answered, Jesus said to him, Go thee behind me, Satan. It is written, Thou shall worship Lord thy God, and him only shall thou serve. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and he said to him, If thou are the Son of God, cast thyself down from here, for it is written, He will give his agents orders about thee, to protect thee, and, They will take thee up on their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. And having answered, Jesus said to him, It is said, Thou shall not challenge Lord thy God. And when the devil ended every temptation, he withdrew from him until a time.


Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and one servant girl came to him, saying, Thou also were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied before them all, saying, I do not know what thou say. And when he was gone out into the porch, another woman saw him, and says to them there, This man was also with Jesus the Nazarene. read more.
And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. And after a little while those who stood, having approached, said to Peter, Surely thou also are of them, for thy accent even makes thee apparent. Then he began to curse vehemently and to swear, I do not know the man. And straightaway a cock sounded. And Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him, Before a cock sounds, thou will deny me thrice. And having gone outside, he wept bitterly.

And those who seized Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest where the scholars and the elders were assembled together. But Peter followed him from afar, as far as the courtyard of the high priest. And having entered inside, he sat with the subordinates to see the outcome.

And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest comes. And having seen Peter warming himself, having looked at him, she says, Thou also were with Jesus of Nazareth. But he denied, saying, I know not, nor understand what thou say. And he went outside onto the porch, and a cock sounded. read more.
And the servant girl having seen him, she began again to say to those who stood by, This man is from them. But he again denied it. And after a little while again those who stood by said to Peter, Surely thou are from them, for thou are a Galilean, and thy accent is similar. But he began to curse and to swear, I do not know this man of whom ye speak. And the second time a cock sounded. And Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him, Before a cock sounds twice, thou will deny me thrice. And having broke down, he wept.

Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. Therefore they said to him, Are thou not also of his disciples? That man therefore denied, and said, I am not. One of the bondmen of the high priest, being a kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, says, Did I not see thee in the garden with him? Peter therefore denied again, and straightaway a cock sounded.

And they led Jesus away to the high priest. And all the chief priests and the elders and the scholars assemble with him. And Peter followed him from a distance, as far as inside the courtyard of the high priest, and was sitting with the subordinates, and warming himself near the light.

And having seized him, they led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. But Peter followed from afar. And having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter sat in the midst of them. But a certain servant girl having seen him sitting near the light, and having looked intently upon him, she said, This man was also with him. read more.
But he denied him, saying, Woman, I do not know him. And after a little while, another man having see him, said, Thou also are from them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. And about one hour having passed, some other man insisted, saying, In truth this man was also with him, for he is also a Galilean. And Peter said, Man, I do not know what thou are saying. And immediately, while he still spoke, a cock sounded. And having turned, the Lord looked on Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, Before a cock sounds thou will deny me thrice. And having gone outside, Peter wept bitterly.

and led him away first to Annas. For he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. Now Caiaphas was the man who counseled the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, also the other disciple. But that disciple was known to the high priest, and he went in with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. read more.
But Peter had stood near the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper and brought in Peter. Therefore the servant girl (the doorkeeper) says to Peter, Are thou not also of this man's disciples? That man says, I am not. Now the bondmen and the subordinates had stood, having made a fire of coals because it was cold, and they were warming themselves. And Peter was also standing with them warming himself.


Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will, no, not hunger, and he who believes in me will, no, not ever thirst. But also I said to you, that ye have seen me, and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and he who comes to me I will, no, not cast out. read more.
Because I have come down from heaven, not so that I might do my will, but the will of him who sent me.

And no man has ascended into heaven, except he who came down out of heaven: the Son of man who is in heaven. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up,

But the grace was given to each of us, according to the measure of the gift of the Christ. Therefore he says, Having ascended on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men. And what is the ascended, except that he also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? read more.
He who descended is also the same man who ascended high above all the heavens, so that he might fill all things.

Jesus therefore again said to them, I go, and ye will seek me, and ye will die in your sin. Where I go, ye cannot come. The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, because he says, Where I go, ye cannot come? And he said to them, Ye are from below, I am from above. Ye are of this world, I am not of this world.

Jesus, having seen that the Father has given all the things to him, into his hands, and that he came from God, and goes to God,


Jesus therefore said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is truly food, and my blood is truly drink. read more.
He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood dwells in me, and I in him.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only TRUE God, and Jesus Christ whom thou sent. read more.
I glorified thee on the earth. I finished the work which thou have given me that I should do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things, as many as thou gave me are from thee. Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me. I pray about them. I do not pray about the world, but about whom thou have given me, because they are for thee. And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name that thou have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name. Whom thou gave to me, I kept, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of destruction, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee. And I speak these things in the world, so that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. I have given them thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in thy truth. Thy word is truth. Just as thou sent me into the world, so also I sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they may also themselves be sanctified in truth. And I pray not about these only, but also about those who believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, just as thou, Father, are in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou sent me. And I, the glory that thou have given me, I have given to them, so that they may be one, just as we are one, I in them, and thou in me, that they may be fully perfected in one, and so that the world may know that thou sent me, and loved them, just as thou loved me. Father, whom thou gave to me, I desire that where I am, they also may be with me, so that they may see my glory that thou have given me, because thou loved me before the foundation of the world. And righteous Father, the world does not know thee, but I know thee, and these know that thou sent me. And I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, so that the love that thou loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Philip says to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. Jesus says to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and thou do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. And how can thou say, Show us the Father? Do thou not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The sayings that I speak to you I speak not from myself, but the Father who dwells in me, he does the works. read more.
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me. But if not, believe me because of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, that man will also do. And he will do greater than these, because I go to the Father. And anything whatever ye may ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye will ask me anything in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more, but ye see me. Because I live, ye will also live. In that day ye will know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Beloved, if our heart should not condemn us, we have confidence toward God, and whatever we may ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do things pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love each other, just as he gave command. read more.
And he who keeps his commandments abides in him, and he in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, from the Spirit that he gave us.

For even if he was crucified from weakness, yet he lives from the power of God. For we in him are also weak, but we will live with him from the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves whether ye are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or know ye not yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? Unless ye are test-failing something.



But be ye not designated Rabbi, for one is your leader, the Christ, and ye are all brothers. And do not designate a father of you upon the earth, for one is your Father, he in the heavens. And be ye not designated leaders, for one is your leader, the Christ.

if we are examined today about a good deed, of a feeble man, by what this man has been healed, be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by this, this man stands here before you healthy. This is the stone that was rejected by you who build, which became into the head of the corner. read more.
And salvation is not in any other man, for there is no other name under the heaven, that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.

Therefore about eating the things sacrificed to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no other God except one. For also since there are things called gods, whether in heaven or on the earth, as there are many gods and many lords, yet to us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things, and we for him, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.


For before these days Theudas rose up saying himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, bonded themselves, who was killed. And all, as many as were persuaded by him, were dispersed and developed into nothi After this man Judas the Galilean rose up in the days of the registration, and drew a considerable crowd behind him. That man was also destroyed, and all, as many as were persuaded by him, were scattered.

And having answered, Jesus said to them, See that not any man may lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and will lead many astray.

Then if any man should say to you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Here, believe ye not. For there will arise FALSE Christs and FALSE prophets, and they will give great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen. Behold, I have foretold it to you. read more.
If therefore they should say to you, Behold, he is in the wilderness, do not go forth. Behold, he is in the inner chambers, do not believe.

And having answered them, Jesus began to say to them, Watch that not any man lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am, and they will lead many astray.

And then if any man should say to you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Lo, there, do not believe. For FALSE Christs and FALSE prophets will arise, and will give signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen. But watch ye. Behold, I have foretold all to you.

And they will say to you, Lo, here! Lo, there! Do not depart, nor pursue. For just as the lightning, its flashing from under the sky to under the sky, illuminates, so will the Son of man be in his day.

And he said, Watch that ye may not be led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, I am, and, The time has come near. Go ye not therefore after them.


But a thought entered among them, which of them may be greater. But having perceived the thought of their heart, having taken a child, Jesus stood it beside him, and he said to them, Whoever may receive this child in my name receives me, and whoever may receive me receives him who sent me, for he who exists smaller among you all, this man will be great.

Jesus therefore having perceived that they are going to come and seize him, so that they might make him king, departed onto the mountain himself alone.

Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to him with her sons, worshiping, and asking something from him. And he said to her, What do thou want? She says to him, Speak that these my two sons may sit, one at thy right hand and one at thy left hand in thy kingdom. But having answered, Jesus said, Ye know not what ye are asking. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am going to drink, or to be immersed the immersion that I am immersed? They say to him, We are able. read more.
And he says to them, Ye will indeed drink my cup, and ye will be immersed the immersion that I am immersed. But to sit at my right hand and at my left hand is not mine to give, but to whom it has been prepared by my Father.

In that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who then is greater in the kingdom of the heavens? And having called in a child, Jesus set it in the midst of them. And he said, Truly I say to you, if ye are not turned, and become as children, ye will, no, not enter into the kingdom of the heavens.

Indeed therefore having come together, they questioned him, saying, Lord, do thou restore the kingdom to Israel at this time? And he said to them, It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father established in his own authority.

And those who went in front, and those who came behind, cried out saying, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of Lord! Hosanna in the highest!


Take heed lest there will be any man taking you captive through the love of wisdom and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to Christ. Because in him all the fullness of the divinity dwells bodily. And ye are men who have been made full in him, who is the head of every principal office and position of authority. read more.
In whom also ye were circumcised a circumcision not made with hands, in the removal of the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of the Christ. Having been buried with him in immersion, in which also ye were raised together through faith of the working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, you he made alive together with him, having forgiven us all the transgressions, having erased the handwriting against us in the regulations that were hostile to us, and he has taken it up from the midst, having nailed it to the cross. Having stripped the principal offices and the positions of authority, he exposed them openly, having triumphed over them by it.

Because of this I endure all things because of the chosen, so that they also may experience salvation in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.


nor height, nor depth, nor any other creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.


And to the agent of the congregation in Laodicea write, These things says the Truly, the faithful and TRUE witness, the primacy of the creation of God:




and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery hidden from the ages in God who created all things through Jesus Christ.



Because in him all things were created, things in the heavens and things upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or lordships or principal offices or positions of authority, all things have been created And he is before all, and in him all things hold together.


And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, said to them, Ye brought this man to me as turning away the people. And behold, I, having examined him before you, found nothing guilty in this man of what ye accuse against him. But not even Herod, for I sent you back to him, and lo, nothing having been done by him is worthy of death. read more.
Therefore, having scourged I will release him. Now he had need to release one man to them at every feast. But they cried out all together, saying, Take away this man, and release to us Barabbas (a man who was cast into prison because of a certain insurrection that occurred in the city, and for murder). Again therefore Pilate called out wanting to release Jesus, but they shouted, saying, Crucify, crucify him. And he said to them a third time, For what evil did this man do? I have found nothing guilty of death in him. I will therefore, having scourged, release him. But they were relentless with loud voices demanding him to be crucified. And their voices and those of the chief priests prevailed. And Pilate decreed their request to happen. And he released the man who had been cast into prison because of insurrection and murder, whom they asked for, but he delivered Jesus to their will.

Now during a feast the governor had been accustomed to release to the crowd one prisoner whom they wanted. And they had then a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. When therefore they were gathered together, Pilate said to them, Whom do ye want I should release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ? read more.
For he knew that they delivered him up because of envy. And while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, There is nothing for thee and that righteous man. For I suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. Now the governor having answered, he said to them, Which of the two do ye want I would release to you? And they said, Barabbas. Pilate says to them, What then shall I do to Jesus who is called Christ? They all say to him, He should be crucified. And the governor said, For what evil has he done? But they cried out even more, saying, He should be crucified. And when Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather an uproar was developing, after taking water, he washed his hands in front of the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man. See ye to it. And having answered, all the people said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then he released Barabbas to them, and having scourged Jesus he delivered him so that he would be crucified.

Now during a feast he released to them one prisoner, whomever they requested. And a man who was called Barabbas was with the rebels who were bound, men who had committed murder during the insurrection. And having cried aloud, the multitude began to ask as he was always doing for them. read more.
And Pilate answered them, saying, Do ye wish that I would release to you the king of the Jews? For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up because of envy. But the chief priests incited the crowd, so that he would release Barabbas to them instead. And again having answered, Pilate said to them, What then do ye wish I would do to the man whom ye call the king of the Jews? And they cried out again, Crucify him. And Pilate said to them, For what evil has he done? But they cried out even more, Crucify him. And Pilate, wanting to do what was sufficent for the crowd, released Barabbas to them. And he delivered Jesus, after scourging, so that he might be crucified.

But there is a custom for you that I should release to you one man at the Passover. Do ye wish therefore I would release to you the king of the Jews? They all cried out again therefore, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. But Barabbas was a robber.

Therefore Pilate then took Jesus and scourged him. And the soldiers having woven a crown of thorns, they put it on his head, and put around him a purple garment. And they said, Hail, king of the Jews! And they gave him slaps. read more.
Therefore Pilate again went forth outside, and says to them, Behold, I bring him out to you, so that ye may know that I find not one cause in him. Jesus therefore came outside, wearing the thorny crown and the purple robe. And he says to them, Look at the man! When therefore the chief priests and the subordinates saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify, crucify him! Pilate says to them, Ye take ye him and crucify, for I find no cause in him. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and according to our law he ought to die because he made himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard this word, he was more afraid. And he went into the Praetorium again, and says to Jesus, Where are thou from? But Jesus gave him no answer. Pilate therefore says to him, Thou do not speak to me? Know thou not that I have authority to crucify thee, and I have authority to release thee? Jesus answered him, Thou would have no authority against me, unless it were given thee from above. Because of this he who delivered me to thee has greater sin. From this Pilate sought to release him, but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou release this man, thou are not Caesar's friend. Every man who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar. When Pilate therefore heard this word, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha. Now it was the Preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he says to the Jews, Look at your king! But they cried out, Away, away, crucify him! Pilate says to them, Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered, We have no king except Caesar. Therefore he then delivered him to them, so that he might be crucified, and they took and led Jesus away.


And behold, they brought to him a paralyzed man who was placed on a bed. And having seen their faith Jesus said to the paralyzed man, Cheer up, child, thy sins have been forgiven thee.



But that ye may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins (then he says to the paralyzed man), After rising, take up thy bed, and go to thy house.

But that ye may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins (he says to the paralyzed man),

But that ye may know that the Son of man has authority upon earth to forgive sins (he said to the paralyzed man), I say to thee, Arise, and after taking up thy small bed, go to thy house.


And having seen their faith, he said to him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

For this reason I say to thee, her many sins are forgiven, because she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, loves little. And he said to her, Thy sins are forgiven. And those who sat together began to say within themselves, Who is this who even forgives sins? read more.
And he said to the woman, Thy faith has saved thee. Go in peace.


And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest comes. And having seen Peter warming himself, having looked at him, she says, Thou also were with Jesus of Nazareth. But he denied, saying, I know not, nor understand what thou say. And he went outside onto the porch, and a cock sounded. read more.
And the servant girl having seen him, she began again to say to those who stood by, This man is from them. But he again denied it. And after a little while again those who stood by said to Peter, Surely thou are from them, for thou are a Galilean, and thy accent is similar. But he began to curse and to swear, I do not know this man of whom ye speak. And the second time a cock sounded. And Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him, Before a cock sounds twice, thou will deny me thrice. And having broke down, he wept.

And while he was still speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs from the chief priest and elders of the people. Now the man who betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomever I may kiss is he. Seize him. And straightaway having come to Jesus, he said, Hail, Rabbi, and kissed him much. read more.
And Jesus said to him, Friend, why are thou here. Then having come, they threw their hands on Jesus, and seized him. And behold, one of those with Jesus, having stretched out a hand, drew his sword, and when he struck the bondman of the high priest, he cut off his ear. Then Jesus says to him, Return thy sword into its place, for all those who take a sword will die by a sword. Or do thou think that I cannot now call my Father, and he will provide to me more than twelve legions of agents? How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it is necessary to happen this way? In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, Did ye come out as against a robber with swords and clubs to seize me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye did not seize me. But all this has come to pass, so that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples fled, having forsook him.

And straightaway, while he still spoke, Judas, being one of the twelve, comes, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs from the chief priests, and the scholars, and the elders. Now he who betrayed him had given them a sign, saying, Whomever I may kiss is he. Seize him, and lead away securely. And when he came, straightaway having approached him, he says, Rabbi, Rabbi, and kissed him much. read more.
And they threw their hands on him, and seized him. And a certain one of those who stood by, having drawn his sword, struck the bondman of the high priest, and cut off his ear. And having answered, Jesus said to them, Have ye come out as against a robber with swords and clubs to arrest me? I was daily near you, teaching in the temple, and ye did not seize me--but that the scriptures might be fulfilled. And having forsook him, they all fled. And a certain one young man followed with him, having been wrapped naked in a linen cloth. And the young men seized him, but having left behind the linen cloth, he fled from them naked. And they led Jesus away to the high priest. And all the chief priests and the elders and the scholars assemble with him. And Peter followed him from a distance, as far as inside the courtyard of the high priest, and was sitting with the subordinates, and warming himself near the light.

While he yet spoke, behold, a multitude, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them. And he came near to Jesus to kiss him. But Jesus said to him, Judas, thou betray the Son of man with a kiss? And when those who were around him saw what would be, they said, Lord, shall we strike with the sword? read more.
And a certain one of them struck the bondman of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. But having answered, Jesus said, Allow ye as far as this. And having touched his ear, he healed him. And Jesus said to the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and elders, who came to him, Have ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs? When I was with you daily in the temple, ye did not stretch forth hands against me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Now Judas, the man betraying him, had also known the place, because Jesus also often gathered there with his disciples. Judas therefore having received the band and subordinates from the chief priests and the Pharisees, comes there with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore knowing all the things that were coming upon him, after going forth, he says to them, Whom seek ye? read more.
They answered him, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus says to them, I am he. And Judas, the man betraying him had also stood with them. When therefore he said to them, I am he, they went backward and fell to the ground. Again therefore he questioned them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus answered, I told you that I am. If therefore ye seek me, allow these men to go, so that the word that he spoke might be fulfilled, Of whom thou have given me, I lost, no, not one of them. Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's bondman, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchus. Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath. The cup that the Father has given me, shall I, no, not drink it? So the band, and the chief captain, and the subordinates of the Jews, arrested Jesus and bound him,




And Paul said, John indeed immersed an immersion of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe in him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus, the Christ.





Salute each other by a kiss of love. Peace to you, to all those in Christ Jesus. Truly.


It is the spirit that makes alive. The flesh benefits nothing. The sayings that I speak to you are spirit, are life. Nevertheless, there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus had known from the beginning who they are who do not believe, and who he is who will betray him.

I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.

I know that ye are Abraham's seed, yet ye seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you. I speak what I have seen from my Father, and ye therefore do what ye have seen from your father. They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus says to them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. read more.
But now ye seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. Ye do the works of your father. They said therefore to him, We were not begotten from fornication. We have one Father, God. Therefore Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, ye would love me, for I came forth and have come from God. For, neither have I come for myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? Because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are from the father, the devil, and ye want to do the desires of your father. He was a man-killer from the beginning, and he has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his And I, because I speak the truth, ye do not believe me. Which of you convicts me about sin? And if I speak truth, why do ye not believe me? He who is of God hears the sayings of God. Because of this ye do not hear, because ye are not of God.

And Jesus cried out and said, He who believes in me, believes not in me, but in him who sent me. And he who sees me sees him who sent me. I have come a light into the world, so that every man who believes in me may not remain in the darkness. read more.
And if any man hears my sayings, and will not believe, I do not judge him, for I came not so that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings, has that which judges him: the word that I spoke, that will judge him in the last day.

Jesus says to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father, except by me. If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also. And from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip says to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. read more.
Jesus says to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and thou do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. And how can thou say, Show us the Father? Do thou not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The sayings that I speak to you I speak not from myself, but the Father who dwells in me, he does the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me. But if not, believe me because of the works themselves.


Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are ye not my work in Lord?

and last of all, as to the untimely birth, he also appeared to me.

And he said, The God of our fathers appointed thee to know his will, and to see the Righteous man, and to hear a voice from his mouth,

But arise, and stand upon thy feet, for I appeared to thee for this, to appoint thee an assistant and a witness both of things that thou saw, and of the things that I will make visible to thee,

And the following night the Lord, having stood by him, said, Cheer up, Paul, for as thou have testified these things about me at Jerusalem, so thou must testify also at Rome.

And on going, it came to pass for him to approach Damascus. And suddenly there shone around him a light out of heaven. And after falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me? And he said, Who are thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecute. read more.
But arise, and enter into the city, and it will be told thee what thou must do. And the men who traveled with him had stopped, speechless, indeed hearing the voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the ground. And when his eyes were opened, he saw no man. But they brought him into Damascus, leading him by the hand. And he was three days not seeing, and did not eat or drink. Now there was a certain disciple in Damascus, named Ananias, and the Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold me, Lord. And the Lord said to him, After rising, go into the street called Straight, and seek in the house of Judas, a man named Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. And he saw in a vision a man named Ananias who came in and laid a hand on him, so that he might receive sight. But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how many evil things he did to thy sanctified at Jerusalem. And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call upon thy name. But the Lord said to him, Go, because this man is a chosen vessel to me, to bear my name before Gentiles and kings, and sons of Israel. For I will give him a glimpse of how many things it is necessary for him to suffer for my name. And Ananias departed and entered into the house. And having laid hands on him he said, Brother Saul, the Lord, he who appeared to thee on the road on which thou came, has sent me so that thou may receive sight, and be filled of Hol


And I saw him saying to me, Hurry and depart in haste out of Jerusalem, because they will not accept thy testimony about me.



In that day ye will ask in my name, and I do not say to you, that I will pray the Father about you,




And in that day ye will ask me nothing. Truly, truly, I say to you, that as many things as ye may ask the Father in my name, he will give you. Until now ye have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and ye will receive, so that your joy may be made full.


After speaking these things, Jesus went forth with his disciples on the other side of the brook Kidron, where there was a garden into which he entered, he and his disciples.

And having sung a hymn, they went out to the mount of Olives.

And when they sang a hymn, they went out onto the mount of Olives.

Then Jesus comes with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he says to his disciples, Sit ye here until, after going, I may pray there. And having taken Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and distressed. Then Jesus says to them, My soul is deeply grieved, as far as of death. Remain ye here and watch with me. read more.
And having gone forward a little, he fell on his face praying, and saying, My Father, if it be possible, may this cup pass from me. Nevertheless, not as I want, but as thou. And he comes to the disciples, and finds them sleeping. And he says to Peter, So ye could not watch with me one hour. Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation. Truly, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Having gone again a second time, he prayed, saying, My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to pass from me, except I drink it, may thy will happen. And having come again, he finds them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. And when he left them, having gone away again, he prayed a third time, saying again the same statement. Then he comes to his disciples, and says to them, Sleep what remains, and take rest...Behold, the hour has come near, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Awake, we go. Behold, he who betrays me has come near.

And they come to a place the name of which was Gethsemane. And he says to his disciples, Sit ye here until I pray. And he takes Peter and James and John with him, and began to be greatly disturbed, and very distressed. And he says to them, My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death. Remain ye here, and watch. read more.
And having gone forward a little, he fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee. Remove this cup from me, but not what I want, but what thou want. And he comes and finds them sleeping. And he says to Peter, Simon, Do thou sleep? Could thou not watch one hour? Watch ye and pray that ye may not enter into temptation. Truly, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. And again having departed, he prayed, having said the same statement. And having returned, he found them again sleeping, for their eyes were weighed down, and they knew not what they should reply to him. And he comes the third time, and says to them, Sleep the remaining, and take your rest...It is enough. The hour has come. Behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going. Behold, he who betrays me has come near.

And having come out, he proceeded according to his habit to the mount of Olives, and his disciples also followed him. And when he came at the place, he said to them, Pray ye not to enter into temptation. And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw. And he knelt down and prayed, read more.
saying, Father, if thou want, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless not my will, but thine be done. And an agent from heaven appeared to him, strengthening him. And having become in agony he prayed more intensely, and his sweat became like drops of blood falling down to the ground. And after rising up from his prayer, having come to the disciples, he found them sleeping from sorrow. And said to them, Why sleep ye? Having risen, pray that ye may not enter into temptation.



But ye denied the Holy and Righteous, and asked for a man, a murderer to be granted to you.


And he said, The God of our fathers appointed thee to know his will, and to see the Righteous man, and to hear a voice from his mouth,

And while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, There is nothing for thee and that righteous man. For I suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me. He who rules over men righteously, who rules in the fear of God,


While he still spoke, some man comes from the synagogue ruler, saying to him, Thy daughter has died. Do not trouble the teacher. But having heard it, Jesus answered him, saying, Fear not, only believe and she will be saved. And when he came to the house, he did not allow any man to enter in except Peter and John and James, and the father of the girl and the mother. read more.
And all were weeping and bewailing her. But he said, Weep not. She did not die, but sleeps. And they ridiculed him, knowing that she died. But having sent them all away outside, having taken her by the hand, he called out, saying, Girl, awake. And her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately. And he commanded to give her to eat. And her parents were amazed, but he ordered them to tell no man that which happened.

And Jesus having come into the ruler's house, and having seen the minstrels, and the crowd making a commotion, he says to them, Depart, for the little girl did not die, but sleeps. And they ridiculed him. But when the crowd was put out, having entered in, he took her hand, and the little girl arose. read more.
And this report went forth into all that land.

While he spoke these things to them, behold, one ruler who came worshiped him, saying, My daughter has just now perished, but after coming, lay thy hand upon her, and she will live. And having risen, Jesus followed him, also his disciples.

And behold, one of the synagogue rulers comes, Jairus by name. And having seen him, he falls at his feet, and besought him much, saying, My little daughter has a terminal condition, so that having come, thou may lay thy hands on her, that she may be saved and will live. And he went with him, and a great multitude followed him, and they thronged him.

While he still spoke, they come from the synagogue ruler saying, Thy daughter died, why still trouble the teacher? But straightaway, Jesus, having heard the word spoken, says to the ruler of the synagogue, Fear not, only believe. And he allowed no man to accompany him except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. read more.
And he comes to the house of the synagogue ruler, and sees a commotion, much weeping and wailing. And when he entered in, he says to them, Why do ye make a commotion, and weep? The child did not die, but sleeps. And they ridiculed him. But he, having put them all out, takes the father of the child and the mother and those with him, and enters in where the child was laying. And having taken the child's hand, he says to her, Talitha cumi. Which is, being interpreted, Little girl, I say to thee, awake. And straightaway the little girl rose up and walked, for she was twelve years old. And they were amazed with a great amazement. And he commanded them much that no man should know this. And he said to give her to eat.

And behold, there came a man whose name was Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And having fallen down near Jesus' feet, he besought him to come into his house, because there was with him an only begotten daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. But during his going the multitudes thronged him.


and, A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense, men who stumble at the word, being disobedient, for which also they were set.

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings, with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is LORD of hosts. The whole earth is full of his glory.


LORD of hosts, him ye shall sanctify, and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. And he shall be for a sanctuary, but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a net and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.



Thus says LORD, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, LORD of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there is no God.


Hearken to me, O Jacob, and Israel my called: I am he. I am the first. I also am the last. Yea, my hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand has spread out the heavens. When I call to them, they stand up together. Assemble yourselves, all ye, and hear: Who among them has declared these things? He whom LORD loves shall perform his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm, the Chaldeans. read more.
I, even I, have spoken, yea, I have called him. I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. Come ye near to me, hear ye this: From the beginning I have not spoken in secret. From the time that it was, there I am. And now lord LORD and his Spirit has sent me.


And having become evening, there came a rich man from Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was discipled by Jesus. This man having come to Pilate, requested the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given. And Joseph having taken the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, read more.
and laid it in his own new sepulcher, which he hewed out in the rock. And having rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, he departed. And Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb. Now on the morrow, which is after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate, saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was still alive, After three days I am raised. Command therefore to secure the tomb until the third day, lest his disciples having come by night steal him away, and say to the people, He was raised from the dead. And the last error will be worse than the first. Pilate said to them, Ye have security. Go, make it as secure as ye know how. And having gone, they made the tomb secure, with the security having sealed the stone.

And now having become evening, since it was the Preparation, that is, pre-Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea came, an honorable councilman who also himself was awaiting the kingdom of God, emboldened, he went in near Pilate, and requested the body of Jesus. And Pilate wondered if he died already. And having summoned the centurion, he questioned him if he was already dead. read more.
And having ascertained from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. And having bought fine linen, and having taken him down, he wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulcher, being that which had been hewn out of rock. And he rolled a stone to the door of the sepulcher. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.

And behold a man named Joseph, a council member, being a good and righteous man (this man not having consented to their purpose and deed), was from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who also himself awaited the kingdom of God. This man having gone to Pilate, requested the body of Jesus. read more.
And having taken it down, he wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulcher cut in rock, of which no man was yet lain. And the day was beginning. It was a preparation Sabbath. And having followed closely, the women who were gathered to him out of Galilee, they saw the sepulcher, and how his body was laid. And having returned, they prepared spices and ointments. And they indeed rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.

The Jews therefore, so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, since it was Preparation (for it was the high day of that Sabbath), they besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and they might be remove The soldiers therefore came, and indeed broke the legs of the first, and of the other man who was crucified with him. But having come to Jesus, when they saw him now having died, they did not break his legs. read more.
But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and straightaway blood and water came out. And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. And that man knows that he speaks true, so that ye may believe. For these things happened so that the scripture might be fulfilled, Not a bone of him will be broken. And again another scripture says, They will look toward whom they pierced. And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because of fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might remove the body of Jesus, and Pilate allowed him. Therefore he came and removed the bod And Nicodemus also came (he who at the first came to Jesus by night) bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. So they took the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in linen cloths with the spices, just as is the custom of the Jews to bury. Now a garden was in the place where he was crucified, and in the garden a new sepulcher in which no man was yet laid. Therefore because of the Jews' Preparation (because the sepulcher was near) they laid Jesus there.


And as they were eating, he said, Truly I say to you, that one of you will betray me. And being exceedingly sorrowful, they began, each of them, to say to him, Is it I, Lord? And having answered, he said, He who dipped his hand with me in the dish, this man will betray me. read more.
The Son of man indeed goes as it is written about him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It were good for him if that man had not been born. And Judas (the man who betrayed him) having answered, he said, Is it I, Rabbi? He says to him, Thou have said.

And as they were relaxing and eating, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, that one of you eating with me will betray me. They began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by one, Not I? and another, Not I? And having answered, he said to them, It is one of the twelve dipping with me in the dish. read more.
The Son of man indeed goes as it is written about him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It was good for him if that man was not born.

Nevertheless behold, the hand of the man who betrays me is with me on the table. And the Son of man indeed goes according to that which has been determined, nevertheless woe to that man through whom he is betrayed! And they began to question among themselves who then of them would be going do this thing.

Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in the spirit, and testified and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray me. Therefore the disciples looked at each other, being uncertain about whom he speaks. And one of his disciples whom Jesus loved was sitting at Jesus' bosom. read more.
Simon Peter therefore gestured to this man to inquire whoever he may be about whom he speaks. And that man, having leaned thus toward Jesus' breast, says to him, Lord, who is he? Jesus replies, He is that man to whom I, having dipped the morsel, will give. And when he dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the morsel, then Satan entered into that man. Jesus therefore says to him, What thou do, do more quickly. But no man who was sitting knew why he said this to him. For some thought, since Judas had the purse, that Jesus said to him, Buy what things we have need of for the feast, or that he should give something to the poor. Therefore having received the morsel, straightaway that man went out, and it was night.


And after they ridiculed him, they took the robe off of him, and put his clothes on him, and led him away in order to crucify. And while coming out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. They drafted this man, so that he might take his cross. And having come to a place called Golgotha, that is called, the place of a skull, read more.
they gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall. And having tasted it, he would not drink.

And when they had mocked him, they took the purple garment off of him, and dressed him with his own garments. And they lead him out so that they might crucify him. And they draft a certain Simon, a Cyrenian passing by coming from the countryside, the father of Alexander and Rufus, so that he would take his cross. And they bring him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, the place of a skull. read more.
And they gave him wine mingled with myrrh to drink, but he did not take it.

And when they led him away, having taken hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrenian coming from the countryside, they laid the cross on him to bring behind Jesus. And a great multitude of the people followed him, and also of women who bewailed and lamented him. But having turning to them, Jesus said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, instead weep for yourselves and for your children. read more.
Because, behold, the days are coming, during which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the bellies that gave no birth, and the breasts that did not suckle. Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us. Because if they do these things in the green tree, what will happen in the dry? And two other men, malefactors, were also led with him to be executed.

Therefore he then delivered him to them, so that he might be crucified, and they took and led Jesus away. And he went out bearing his cross to a place called, of a Skull, a place that is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,


But having become morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people held consultation against Jesus in order to condemn him to death. And having bound him, they led him away and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned him, saying, Are thou the king of the Jews? And Jesus said to him, Thou say. And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. Then Pilate says to him, Do thou not hear how many things they testify against thee? read more.
And he did not answer him, not even one word, so as for the governor to marvel greatly.

And straightaway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scholars and the whole council, having made a plan, after binding Jesus, they took him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. And Pilate questioned him, Are thou the king of the Jews? And having answered, he said to him, Thou say. And the chief priests accused him of many things. read more.
And Pilate again questioned him, saying, Thou answer nothing? Behold how many things they testify against thee. But Jesus answered nothing any more, so as for Pilate to wonder.

And having risen, the whole company of them led him to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this man perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ, a king. And Pilate questioned him, saying, Are thou the king of the Jews? And having answered him, he said, Thou say. read more.
And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, I find nothing guilty in this man. But they were emphatic, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, having begun from Galilee as far as here.

They lead Jesus therefore from Caiaphas to the Praetorium. And it was early, and they did not enter into the Praetorium, so that they would not be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover. Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, What accusation do ye bring against this man? They answered and said to him, If this man were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered him up to thee. read more.
Pilate therefore said to them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is not permitted for us to kill any man, so that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled that he spoke, signifying what kind of death he was going to die. Pilate therefore again entered into the Praetorium, and called Jesus, and said to him, Are thou the king of the Jews? Jesus answered, Do thou say this of thyself, or did others tell thee about me? Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests delivered thee to me. What have thou done? Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world my subordinates would have fought so that I would not be delivered to the Jews, but now my kingdom is not from here. Pilate therefore said to him, Then thou a king? Jesus answered, Thou say that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I would testify to the truth. Every man who is of the truth hears m Pilate says to him, What is truth? And having said this, he went out again to the Jews, and says to them, I find not one cause in him.


Now the chief priests and the elders and the whole council sought FALSE testimony against Jesus, so that they might put him to death, and they did not find it. And although many FALSE witnesses came, they did not find it. But finally two FALSE witnesses having come, they said, This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it by three days. read more.
And the high priest having stood up, he said to him, Answer thou nothing? What do these testify against thee? But Jesus was silent. And having responded, the high priest said to him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou are the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus says to him, Thou have said. Nevertheless I say to you, Henceforth ye will see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of the sky. Then the high priest tore his garments, saying, He has blasphemed. What further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye heard his blasphemy. What does it seem to you? Having answered, they said, He is deserving of death. Then they spat in his face and struck him with a fist. And some slapped him, saying, Prophesy to us, thou Christ. Who is he who struck thee?

Now the chief priests and the whole council sought testimony against Jesus in order to put him to death, and did not find it. For many testified falsely against him, and their testimonies were not consistent. And some men having stood up, testified falsely against him, saying, read more.
We heard him saying, I will destroy this temple made with hands, and by three days I will build another not made with hands. And not even this way was their testimony consistent. And the high priest having stood up in the midst, he demanded Jesus, saying, Thou answer nothing? What is it these men testify against thee? But he remained silent, and answered nothing. Again the high priest demanded him, and says to him, Are thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am. And ye will see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of the sky. And the high priest having torn his clothes, he says, What further need have we of witnesses? Ye have heard the blasphemy. What does it seem to you? And they all condemned him to be deserving of death. And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to strike him with a fist, and to say to him, Prophesy. And the subordinates were throwing him with slaps.

And the men who held Jesus mocked him, while striking him. And having covered him, they struck his face, and demanded him, saying, Prophesy! Who is he who struck thee? And they spoke many other things against him, railing against him. read more.
And when it became day, the eldership of the people, the chief priests, and the scholars, came together, and led him into their council, saying, If thou are the Christ, tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not believe, and if I also ask, ye will, no, not answer nor release. From henceforth the Son of man will be sitting at the right hand of the power of God. And they all said, Therefore thou are the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am. And they said, What further need have we of testimony? For we have heard from his mouth.

The high priest therefore asked Jesus about his disciples, and about his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spoke in public to the world. I always taught in a synagogue, and in the temple where the Jews always gather together, and I spoke nothing in secret. Why question thou me? Question those who have heard what I said to them. Behold, these know the things that I said.


And when they crucified him, they divided his garments, casting lots. And as they sat, they keep watch over him there. And they set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. read more.
Then two robbers are crucified with him, one at the right hand and one at the left. And those who passed by reviled him, shaking their heads, and saying, Thou who destroy the temple, and build it in three days, save thyself. If thou are the Son of God, come down from the cross. And likewise also the chief priests, ridiculing with the scholars, and elders, and Pharisees, said, He saved others, he cannot save himself. If he is the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusted in God, let him rescue him now, if he wants him, for he said, I am the Son of God. And also the robbers who were crucified with him reviled him the same way. Now from the sixth hour darkness developed over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a great voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is, My God, my God, why have thou forsaken me? And some of those who stood there, when they heard it, said, This man calls Elijah. And straightaway one of them, after running, and having taken a sponge, and having filled it with vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. But the others said, Leave thou be. We might see if Elijah comes he will save him. And Jesus, having cried out again in a great voice, yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks split, and the sepulchers were opened, and many bodies of the sanctified who have been asleep arose. And having come forth out of the sepulchers after his resurrection they entered into the holy city and appeared to many. Now the centurion, and those with him watching over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake, and the things that happened, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. And many women were there watching from afar, who followed Jesus from Galilee, serving him, among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

And having crucified him, they divided his garments, casting lots for them, who would take what. And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. And the inscription of his accusation was inscribed, THE KING OF THE JEWS. read more.
And they crucify two robbers with him, one at his right hand, and one at his left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which says, And he was reckoned with lawless men. And those who passed by railed at him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! Thou who destroy the temple, and build it in three days, save thyself, and come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking among each other with the scholars said, He saved others, he cannot save himself. Let the Christ, the king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe in him. And those who were crucified with him reviled him. And having become the sixth hour, darkness occurred over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a great voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why have thou forsaken me? And some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calls Elijah. And one having ran, and having filled a sponge of vinegar, and having placed it on a reed, gave him to drink, saying, Leave be. We might see if Elijah comes to take him down. And having given out a great voice, Jesus expired. And the curtain of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, who stood from opposite him, saw that he expired, having cried out this way, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. And there were also women looking on from a distance, among whom were also Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the small man, and of Joses, and Salome; women who also followed him and served him when he was in Galilee, also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.

And when they came to the place called Skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one at the right hand and the other at the left. And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. And dividing his garments, they cast a lot. And the people had stood watching. And also the rulers with them sneered, saying, He saved others. He should save himself, if this is the Christ, the chosen of God. read more.
And the soldiers also mocked him, approaching, and bringing him vinegar, and saying, If thou are the king of the Jews, save thyself. And there was also an inscription over him written in letters, in Greek and Latin and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. And one of the malefactors who were hanged railed him, saying, If thou are the Christ, save thyself and us. But the other man having answered, rebuking him, saying, Thou fear not even God, since thou are in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive worthy of what we did, but this man did nothing amiss. And he said to Jesus, Remember me, Lord, when thou come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to thee, today thou will be with me in the paradise. And it was about the sixth hour, and darkness occurred over the whole land until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the curtain of the temple was torn in the middle. And Jesus, having sounded out in a great voice, said, Father, into thy hands I entrust my spirit. And having said these things, he expired. And when the centurion saw that which happened, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this man was righteous. And all the multitudes who came together to this scene, watching that which happened, turned back, beating their breasts. And all his acquaintances, and the women who accompanied him from Galilee, had stood from afar, seeing these things.

where they crucified him, and two others with him, on this side and that, and Jesus in the middle. And Pilate also wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And it was written, JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Therefore many of the Jews read this title, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, in Latin. read more.
Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, Do not write, The king of the Jews, but, That man said I am king of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. The soldiers therefore when they crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. But the tunic was a seamless weave, from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not divide it, but cast lots for it, whose it will be, so that the scripture might be fulfilled, which says, They parted my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots. There And his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene had stood near the cross of Jesus. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing by, he says to his mother, Woman, behold thy son. Then says he to the disciple, Behold, thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own place. After this, Jesus, having seen that all things are now completed, so that the scripture might be fully complete, says, I thirst. Therefore a vessel full of vinegar was set there. And having filled a sponge with the vinegar, and having put it around a hyssop, they brought it to his mouth. When therefore Jesus received the vinegar, he said, It is finished, and after bowing his head, he gave up the spirit.


And when they came near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends forth two of his disciples, and says to them, Go ye into the village opposite you, and straightaway as ye enter into it, ye will find a colt tied, on which none of men have ever sat. After untying it, bring it. And if any man should say to you, Why are ye doing this? say ye, The Lord has need of it, and straightaway he sends it here. read more.
And they departed, and found the colt tied by the door outside in the street, and they untied it. And some of those who stood there said to them, What are ye doing, untying the colt? And they said to them just as Jesus commanded, and they allowed them. And they brought the colt to Jesus, and threw their garments on it, and he sat upon it. And many spread their garments upon the road, and others were cutting branches from the fields, and were spreading on the road. And those who went in front, and those who came behind, cried out saying, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of Lord! Hosanna in the highest! And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple. And when he looked around on all things, the hour now being evening, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

And when they came near to Jerusalem, and came to Bethsphage, to the mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, Go into the village opposite you, and straightaway ye will find a donkey tied, and a colt with it. Having loosed them, bring to me. And if any man says anything to you, ye will say, The Lord has need of them, and straightaway he will send them. read more.
Now all this came to pass, so that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, which says, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King comes to thee, meek, and mounted upon a donkey, and a colt the foal of a pack animal. And the disciples having gone, and having done as Jesus commanded them, they brought the donkey and the colt, and put their garments over them. And he sat upon them. And the great multitide spread their garments on the road, and others cut down branches from the trees, and spread them on the road. And the multitudes who went ahead and those who followed, cried out, saying, Hosanna to the son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord. Hosanna in the highest! And when he entered into Jerusalem, all the city was shaken, saying, Who is this? And the multitudes said, This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.

And it came to pass when he came near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying, Go ye into the opposite village, in which, having entered, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man ever sat. Having untied, bring it. And if any man asks you, Why do ye untie it? Thus ye will say to him, The Lord has need of it. read more.
And having departed, those who were sent found just as he said to them. And as they were untying the colt, the masters of it said to them, Why do ye untie the colt? And they said, The Lord has need of it. And they brought it to Jesus. And having cast their garments upon the colt, they mounted Jesus. And as he went, they spread their garments on the road. And as he was now coming near, at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began rejoicing to praise God in a great voice about all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, Blessed is the King who comes in the name of Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest! And some of the Pharisees from the multitude said to him, Teacher, rebuke thy disciples. And having answered, he said to them, I tell you that if these were silent, the stones would cry out. And when he came near, having seen the city, he wept over it, saying, If thou knew, even thou, indeed even in this thy day, the things for thy peace. But now they are hidden from thine eyes. Because the days will come upon thee, and thine enemies will build a barricade around thee, and will surround thee, and enclose thee on every side. And they will raze thee and thy children within thee. And they will not leave in thee a stone upon a stone, because thou knew not the time of thy visitation.

On the morrow a great multitude having come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried out, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord, the King of Israel! And Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat on it, as it is written, read more.
Fear not, daughter of Zion. Behold, thy King comes, sitting on a donkey's colt. Now his disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these were things written because of him, and they did these things to him. Therefore the multitude, the one that was with him when he called Lazarus from the sepulcher, and raised him from the dead, testified. Also because of this the multitude met him, because they heard of him doing this sign. The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Do ye see that ye accomplish nothing. Behold, the world has gone after him.


And having become evening, his disciples came to him, saying, The place is desolate, and the hour is now past. Send the multitudes away, so that having gone into the villages, they may buy food for themselves. But Jesus said to them, They have no need to depart. Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, We have not here, except five loaves and two fishes. read more.
But he said, Bring them here to me. And after commanding the multitudes to sit down on the grass, having taken the five loaves, and the two fishes, having looking up to heaven, he blessed. And having broken them in pieces, he gave the loaves to the disciples, and the And they all ate, and were filled. And they took up that which remained of the fragments, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

And now many an hour having come to pass, his disciples having come to him, they say, The place is desolate, and it is now many an hour. Send them away, so that after going into the fields and villages around, they may buy loaves for themselves, for they do not have what they may eat. But having answered, he said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, After departing, shall we buy loaves of two hundred denarii, and give them to eat? read more.
And he says to them, How many loaves have ye? Go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And he commanded them to sit down, all by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties. And after taking the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to heaven, he blessed, and broke the loaves in pieces, and he gave to the disciples so that they might set before them. And he distributed the two fishes to them And they all ate, and were filled. And they took up fragments, twelve baskets full, and from the fishes. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.

And the day began to decline, and the twelve having come near, they said to him, Send the multitude away, so that, after going into the villages and fields around, they may rest and find provision, because we are here in a desolate But he said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, There are for us not more than five loaves and two fishes, unless, after going, we might buy food for all this people. For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down in groups of fifty each. read more.
And they did so, and made them all sit down. And after taking the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to heaven, he blessed them, and broke in pieces, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they ate, and were all filled. And there were taken up to them of the remaining fragments, twelve baskets.

Jesus therefore having lifted up his eyes, and having seen that a great multitude comes to him, he says to Philip, From where will we buy loaves, so that these may eat? But he said this testing him, for he himself knew what he was going to do. Philip answered him, Loaves of two hundred denarii of bread are not sufficient for them, so that each of them may take a little something. read more.
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, says to him, There is one child here that has five barley loaves and two fishes, but what are these for so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves, and having expressed thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those who were sitting down, likewise also of the fishes as much as they wanted. And when they were filled, he says to his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain over, so that not anything may be lost. So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets of fragments from the five barley loaves that remained over from those who have eaten. When therefore the men saw what sign Jesus did, they said, This really is the prophet who comes into the world.


And he spoke many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, the man who sows went forth to sow. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured them. But others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much soil, and straightaway they sprang up because they had no depth of soil. read more.
But when the sun was risen, they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered. And others fell in the thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. But others fell upon the good ground, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.

The man who sows went forth to sow his seed. And during his sowing, some fell by the way, and it was trampled, and the birds of the sky devoured it. And another fell on the rock, and having grown, it withered away because of not having moisture. And another fell amidst the thorns, and having grown together, the thorns choked it. read more.
And another fell on the good ground, and having grown it produced fruit a hundredfold. As he said these things, he called out, He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Hear ye then the parable of the man who sows. Of every man who hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understands it, evil comes, and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is that which was sown by the wayside. And that which was sown upon the rocky places, this is he who hears the word, and straightaway receiving it with joy, read more.
yet he has no root in himself, instead it is temporary. And when tribulation or persecution develops because of the word, straightaway he is caused to stumble. And that which was sown in the thorns, this is he who hears the word, and the care of this age, and the deceitfulness of wealth, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. But that which was sown upon the good ground, this is he who hears the word, and understands it, who indeed bears fruit, and is productive, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

And again he began to teach by the sea. And a great multitude was gathered to him, so as for him, after entering into the boat, to sit on the sea, and all the multitude was by the sea on the land. And he taught them many things in parables, and said to them in his teaching, Listen. Behold, the man who sows went forth to sow. read more.
And it came to pass during the sowing, some fell by the path, and the birds came and devoured it. And others fell on the rocky ground where it had not much soil. And straightaway it sprang up, because it had no depth of soil. And when the sun was risen it was scorched, and because it had no root it dried out. And others fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it gave no fruit. And others fell into the good ground and gave fruit, coming up and increasing, and brought forth, one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundred. And he said, He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

The man who sows sows the word. And these are those by the path where the word is sown. And whenever they may hear, straightaway Satan comes, and takes away the word that has been sown in their hearts. And these in like manner are those being sown upon the rocky places, who, whenever they may hear the word, straightaway receive it with joy. read more.
And they have no root in themselves, but are temporary. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution develops because of the word, straightaway they are caused to stumble. And these are those being sown in the thorns, who hear the word, and the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of wealth, and the cravings about other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. And these are those that were sown upon the good ground, who hear the word and receive it, and bear fruit, one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundred.

Now the parable is this. The seed is the word of God. And those by the way are those who hear, then the devil comes, and takes away the word from their heart, lest having believed, they would be saved. And those on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy. And these have no root, who believe for a time, and withdraw in time of trial. read more.
And that which fell in the thorns, these are those who heard, and as they go they are choked by cares and wealth and pleasures of life, and do not bring to maturity. But those in the good ground, these are those who in an good and right heart, having heard the word, hold it firm, and bring forth fruit in perseverance.


Now when Jesus heard it, he departed from there in a boat into a desolate place in private. And when the multitudes heard of it, they followed him on foot from the cities. And having come forth, Jesus saw a great multitude, and he felt compassion toward them, and healed the feeble of them. And having become evening, his disciples came to him, saying, The place is desolate, and the hour is now past. Send the multitudes away, so that having gone into the villages, they may buy food for themselves. read more.
But Jesus said to them, They have no need to depart. Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, We have not here, except five loaves and two fishes. But he said, Bring them here to me. And after commanding the multitudes to sit down on the grass, having taken the five loaves, and the two fishes, having looking up to heaven, he blessed. And having broken them in pieces, he gave the loaves to the disciples, and the And they all ate, and were filled. And they took up that which remained of the fragments, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

And the apostles gather together to Jesus, and reported all to him, and how many things they did, and how many things they taught. And he said to them, Come ye yourselves in private into a desolate place, and rest a while. For there were many coming and going, and they had no opportunity even to eat. And they departed in the boat to a desolate place in private. read more.
And they saw them going. And many recognized him, and ran together on foot there from all the cities. And they went before them, and came together to him. And Jesus having come out, he saw a great multitude. And he felt compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things. And now many an hour having come to pass, his disciples having come to him, they say, The place is desolate, and it is now many an hour. Send them away, so that after going into the fields and villages around, they may buy loaves for themselves, for they do not have what they may eat. But having answered, he said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they say to him, After departing, shall we buy loaves of two hundred denarii, and give them to eat? And he says to them, How many loaves have ye? Go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And he commanded them to sit down, all by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down in groups, by hundreds and by fifties. And after taking the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to heaven, he blessed, and broke the loaves in pieces, and he gave to the disciples so that they might set before them. And he distributed the two fishes to them And they all ate, and were filled. And they took up fragments, twelve baskets full, and from the fishes. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.

And when the apostles returned, they related to him as many things as they did. And having taken them along, he withdrew in private into a desolate place of a city called Bethsaida. But the multitudes having known, they followed him. And having received them, he spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and he cured those who had need of healing. And the day began to decline, and the twelve having come near, they said to him, Send the multitude away, so that, after going into the villages and fields around, they may rest and find provision, because we are here in a desolate read more.
But he said to them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, There are for us not more than five loaves and two fishes, unless, after going, we might buy food for all this people. For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down in groups of fifty each. And they did so, and made them all sit down. And after taking the five loaves and the two fishes, having looked up to heaven, he blessed them, and broke in pieces, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they ate, and were all filled. And there were taken up to them of the remaining fragments, twelve baskets.

After these things Jesus went to the other side of the sea of Galilee of Tiberias. And a great multitude followed him because they saw his signs, which he did on those who are infirmed. And Jesus went up onto the mountain, and he sat there with his disciples. read more.
Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near. Jesus therefore having lifted up his eyes, and having seen that a great multitude comes to him, he says to Philip, From where will we buy loaves, so that these may eat? But he said this testing him, for he himself knew what he was going to do. Philip answered him, Loaves of two hundred denarii of bread are not sufficient for them, so that each of them may take a little something. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, says to him, There is one child here that has five barley loaves and two fishes, but what are these for so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves, and having expressed thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those who were sitting down, likewise also of the fishes as much as they wanted. And when they were filled, he says to his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain over, so that not anything may be lost. So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets of fragments from the five barley loaves that remained over from those who have eaten. When therefore the men saw what sign Jesus did, they said, This really is the prophet who comes into the world.


And behold, a great earthquake occurred, for an agent of Lord, having descended from heaven, having come, he rolled the stone away from the door and sat upon it. And his appearance was as lightning and his clothing white as snow. And those watching over shook from fear of him, and became as dead men. read more.
And having responded, the agent said to the women, Fear ye not, for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for he was raised as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And after going quickly, tell his disciples, He was raised from the dead, and lo, he goes before you into Galilee. There ye will see him. Behold, I have told you. And after coming out quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, they ran to notify his disciples. And as they were going to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus also met them, saying, Hail. And having come, they held his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus says to them, Fear not. Go notify my brothers that they should depart into Galilee, and there they will see me. Now while they were going, behold, some of the security having come into the city, reported to the chief priests all the things that happened. And after assembling with the elders, and having taken consultation, they gave many silver pieces to the soldiers, saying, Say ye, His disciples, having come by night, stole him from us while we slept. And if this should be heard by the governor, we will persuade him, and will make you worry free. And having taken the silver pieces, they did as they were instructed. And this saying was spread abroad among the Jews until this day.

And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that having come, they might anoint him. And very much early morning on the first day of the week, they come near to the sepulcher when the sun was risen. And they said to themselves, Who will roll away the stone for us from the door of the sepulcher? read more.
And having looked, they see that the stone has been rolled back, for it was very large. And having entered into the sepulcher, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he says to them, Be not alarmed. Ye seek Jesus, the man of Nazareth who was crucified. He was raised. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee. Ye will see him there, just as he said to you. And having come out, they fled from the sepulcher, and trembling and astonishment seized them. And they said nothing to any man, for they were afraid. Now having risen early morning on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. That woman, having gone, informed those who became with him, as they mourned and wept. And those men, when they heard that he is alive, and was seen by her, did not believe.

And on the first day of the week, very early morning, they came to the sepulcher bringing the spices that they prepared, and some women with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. And having entered in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. read more.
And it came to pass while they were bewildered about this, that behold, two men stood near them in shining apparel. And since they became frightened and bowing down their face to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but was raised. Remember how he spoke to you when he was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day to rise. And they remembered his sayings. And having returned from the sepulcher, they reported all these things to the eleven, and to all the others. Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles. And their sayings appeared before them as idle talk, and they disbelieved them. But having risen, Peter ran to the sepulcher. And having stooped down, he sees the linen cloths laying alone. And he departed, wondering to himself at that which happened.

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene comes early, while it was still darkness, to the sepulcher, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulcher. Therefore she runs and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the sepulcher. read more.
And the two men ran together, and the other disciple ran ahead quicker than Peter and came first to the sepulcher. And after stooping down, he sees the linen cloths lying, yet he entered not. Simon Peter therefore comes following him, and he entered into the sepulcher. And he sees the linen cloths lying, and the face cloth that was on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped up in one place separately. Therefore then the other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, also entered in, and he saw and believed. For they had not yet known the scripture that he must rise from the dead. So the disciples departed again to themselves. But Mary had stood outside near the sepulcher weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped down to the sepulcher. And she sees two heavenly agents in white, sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus was lain. And those men say to her, Woman, why weep thou? She says to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And having said these things, she turned backward, and sees Jesus standing. And she had not known that it is Jesus. Jesus says to her, Woman, why weep thou? Whom seek thou? That woman, supposing that he is the gardener, says to him, Sir, if thou have taken him, tell me where thou have laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus says to her, Mary. After turning around, that woman says to him, Rabboni, which says, Teacher. Jesus says to her, Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brothers, and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. Mary Magdalene comes informing the disciples that she has seen the Lord, and he spoke these things to her.


Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me.

I have many things to say and to judge about you. But he who sent me is true, and I speak to the world these things that I heard from him.


He who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that ye hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me.


And I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, so that the love that thou loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Because I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me, he gave me commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. Therefore what things I speak, just as the Father has said to me, so I speak.




And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee. And a report went out about him through the entire region around.

Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the good-news of God,

And after the two days he departed from there and went into Galilee. For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own fatherland. So when he came into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast, for they also went to the feast.


This man came to him by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that thou have come a teacher from God, for no man can do these signs that thou do if God is not with him.

God, who formerly spoke in many portions and in many ways to the fathers by the prophets, spoke to us in these last days by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the ages.

I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word.

And no man has ascended into heaven, except he who came down out of heaven: the Son of man who is in heaven.



And I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, so that the love that thou loved me may be in them, and I in them.



And upon his entering into the boat, his disciples followed him. And behold, a great tempest developed in the sea, so as for the boat to be covered by the waves, but he was sleeping. And the disciples having approached, they awoke him, saying, Save us, Lord, we are perishing. read more.
And he says to them, Why are ye cowardly, O ye of little faith? Then after rising, he rebuked the winds and the sea, and there became a great calm. But the men marveled, saying, What kind of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?

And on that day, having become evening, he says to them, Let us pass through to the other side. And having sent the multitude away, they bring him along as he was in the boat. And other small boats were also with him. And a great storm of wind develops, and the waves were thrown into the boat, so as for it now to be filling. read more.
And he himself was in the stern sleeping on the cushion. And they awake him, and say to him, Teacher, does it not concern thee that we perish? And having awaken, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Be quiet! Silence! And the wind ceased, and it became a great calm. And he said to them, Why are ye cowardly this way? How have ye no faith? And they feared a great fear, and said to each other, Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea also obey him?

Now it came to pass on one of those days, that he entered into a boat, also his disciples. And he said to them, Let us pass through to the other side of the lake. And they launched forth, but as they sailed he began to asleep. And a storm of wind came down on the lake, and they were filling up, and were in peril. And having approached, they awoke him, saying, Master, master, we are perishing. And having risen, he rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and it became calm. read more.
And he said to them, Where is your faith? And having feared, they wondered, saying to each other, Who then is this man, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?




Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man who is my companion, says LORD of hosts. Smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. And I will turn my hand upon the little ones.



Then Jesus says to them, All ye will be caused to stumble by me in this night, for it is written, I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.


Then a blind and mute man being demon possessed, was brought to him. And he healed him, so as for the blind and mute man both to speak and to see. And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, Is this not the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This man does not cast out demons, except by Beelzebub the ruler of the demons. read more.
And having known their thoughts Jesus said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to ruin, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Because of this they will be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come near you. Or how can any man enter into the house of the strong man, and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. Because of this I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy of the spirit will not be forgiven men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, neither in the present age, nor in the one that is coming. Either make the tree good, and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt, for the tree is known by its fruit. Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you, that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they will render account about it in the day of judgment. For from thy words thou will be justified, and from thy words thou will be condemned.

and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. And they come to a house. And the multitude comes together again, so as for them, no, not even to be able to eat bread. And when those with him heard it, they went out to grasp him, for they said, He is beside himself. read more.
And the scholars who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the ruler of the demons he casts out the demons. And having summoned them, he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan has rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. But no man, having enter into the house of the strong man, can plunder his goods unless he first binds the strong man, and then he may plunder his house. Truly I say to you, that all the sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and the blasphemies, as many as they may blaspheme. But whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness, into the age, but is deserving of eternal damnation, because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

And he was casting out a demon, and it was mute. And it happened when the demon was gone out, the mute man spoke. And the multitudes marveled, but some of them said, He casts out the demons by Beelzebub, ruler of the demons.

But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, Every kingdom that was divided against itself is made desolate, and a house against a house falls. And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom be made to stand? Because ye say that I cast out the demons by Beelzebub. And if I cast out the demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Because of this they will be your judges. read more.
But if by a finger of God I cast out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When the fully armed strong man guards his palace, the things possessed by him are in peace, but when a stronger than he comes, after defeating him, he takes away his full armor in which he trusted, and divides his booty. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.


At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the report of Jesus, and he said to his boys, This is John the immerser. He has risen from the dead, and because of this the powers work in him.

But Herod's birthday being brought, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatever she would ask. And she, having been put forward by her mother, says, Give me here on a platter the head of John the immerser. read more.
And he became sad, but because of the oaths, and of those dining together, the king commanded it to be given. And having sent, he beheaded John in the prison. And his head was brought on a platter, and given to the maiden, and she brought it to her mother. And after coming, his disciples took up the body and buried it, and having gone, they informed Jesus.

And king Herod heard, for his name had become well known. And he said, John, the man who immerses, was raised from the dead, and because of this the powers work in him. Others said, He is Elijah, and others said, He is a prophet, like one of the prophets. But Herod, when he heard, said, This is John whom I beheaded. He was raised from the dead.

And having become a convenient day, when Herod on his birthday made a dinner for his chiefs, and the high captains, and the leading men of Galilee, and the daughter of her (of Herodias) having come in and danced, and having pleased Herod and those who sat with the king, he said to the maiden, Ask of me whatever thou may want, and I will give to thee. And he swore to her, Whatever thou may ask of me, I will give to thee, as much as half of my kingdom. read more.
And having gone out, she said to her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the immerser. And having come in straightaway with haste to the king, she asked, saying, I want that thou may give me, of it on a platter, the head of John the immerser. And the king, who became exceeding sorry, did not want to refuse her because of the oaths, and of those dining together. And straightaway having sent an executioner, the king commanded his head to be brought. And having departed, he beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the maiden. And the maiden gave it to her mother. And when his disciples heard, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a sepulcher.

But Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him. And he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John was risen from the dead, and by some that Elijah appeared, and by others that a prophet, one of the ancient men arose. And Herod said, I beheaded John, but who is this about whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him.


And having answered, he said, He who dipped his hand with me in the dish, this man will betray me.

Nevertheless behold, the hand of the man who betrays me is with me on the table.


And as they were relaxing and eating, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, that one of you eating with me will betray me. They began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by one, Not I? and another, Not I? And having answered, he said to them, It is one of the twelve dipping with me in the dish. read more.
The Son of man indeed goes as it is written about him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It was good for him if that man was not born.



Hear the word of LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock.

Thus says lord LORD: Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the sheep. Neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more, and I will deliver my sheep f

And LORD their God will save them in that day as the flock of his people, [as] for the stones of a crown, lifted on high over his land.



I solemnly testify therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is going to judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom,











Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, Where I go, ye cannot come, I also now say to you.


A little while, and ye do not look at me. Again a little while, and ye will see me, because I go to the Father.

Jesus therefore again said to them, I go, and ye will seek me, and ye will die in your sin. Where I go, ye cannot come.

Jesus therefore said, Yet a little time I am with you, and then I go to him who sent me. Ye will seek me, and will not find me, and where I am, ye cannot come.



And he said to them, Truly I say to you, there are some of those who have stood here, who will, no, not taste of death until they see the kingdom of God come in power.

From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders, and chief priests, and scholars, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. And having taken him aside, Peter began to rebuke him, saying, Be merciful to thee, Lord. This will, no, not be to thee. But having turned around, he said to Peter, Go thee behind me, Satan. Thou are my stumbling-block, because thou regard not the things of God, but the things of men. read more.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any man wants to come behind me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it. For what does it profit a men, if he should gain the whole world, and lose his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man is going to come in the glory of his Father with his heavenly agents, and then he will reward each man according to his actions. Truly I say to you, there are some of those who stand here, who will, no, not taste of death, until they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

And he began to teach them that it was necessary for the Son of man to suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and the chief priests, and the scholars, and be killed, and after three days to rise. And he spoke the matter openly. And having taken him aside, Peter began to rebuke him. But he, having turned around, and having looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Go thee behind me, Satan, because thou think not the things of God, but the things of men. read more.
And having called in the multitude with his disciples, he said to them, Whoever wants to follow behind me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life because of me and the good-news, this man will save it. For what will it profit a man if he should gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever may be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy agents.

saying, It is necessary for the Son of man to suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scholars, and be killed, and the third day to rise. And he said to all, If any man wants to come behind me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever may lose his life because of me, this man will save it. read more.
For what is a man benefited, having gained the whole world, but having lost or having forfeited himself? For whoever may be ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of man will be ashamed of this man when he comes in his glory, and of the Father, and of the holy agents. But I tell you truly, there are some of those who stand here, who will, no, not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.


And to the agent of the congregation in Laodicea write, These things says the Truly, the faithful and TRUE witness, the primacy of the creation of God:



Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me.



He is not here, for he was raised as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And he says to them, Be not alarmed. Ye seek Jesus, the man of Nazareth who was crucified. He was raised. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him.

He is not here, but was raised. Remember how he spoke to you when he was still in Galilee,

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene comes early, while it was still darkness, to the sepulcher, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulcher. Therefore she runs and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the sepulcher. read more.
And the two men ran together, and the other disciple ran ahead quicker than Peter and came first to the sepulcher. And after stooping down, he sees the linen cloths lying, yet he entered not. Simon Peter therefore comes following him, and he entered into the sepulcher. And he sees the linen cloths lying, and the face cloth that was on his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped up in one place separately. Therefore then the other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, also entered in, and he saw and believed. For they had not yet known the scripture that he must rise from the dead. So the disciples departed again to themselves. But Mary had stood outside near the sepulcher weeping. So, as she wept, she stooped down to the sepulcher. And she sees two heavenly agents in white, sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus was lain. And those men say to her, Woman, why weep thou? She says to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And having said these things, she turned backward, and sees Jesus standing. And she had not known that it is Jesus. Jesus says to her, Woman, why weep thou? Whom seek thou? That woman, supposing that he is the gardener, says to him, Sir, if thou have taken him, tell me where thou have laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus says to her, Mary. After turning around, that woman says to him, Rabboni, which says, Teacher. Jesus says to her, Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brothers, and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. Mary Magdalene comes informing the disciples that she has seen the Lord, and he spoke these things to her.


Afterward he became visible to them, to the eleven, who were relaxing. And he upbraided their unbelief and hard heart, because they did not believe those who saw him after he was raised. And he said to them, Having gone into all the world, preach ye the good-news to the whole creation. He who believes and is immersed will be saved, but he who does not believe will be damned. read more.
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will cast out demons. They will speak in new tongues. They will take up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly, it will, no, not harm them. They will lay hands on the feeble, and they will fare well.

And as they spoke these things, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and says to them, Peace to you. But having seen startled, and having become frightened, they presumed to see a spirit. And he said to them, Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? read more.
See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as ye see me having. And having said this, he displayed to them his hands and feet. And while they still disbelieved from joy and wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything to eat here? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish and from a bees honeycomb. And having taken it, he ate before them. And he said to them, These are the words that I spoke to you while still being with you, that it is necessary for all things that are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms about me to be fulfulled. Then he opened their mind to understand the scriptures. And he said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day, and to proclaim in his name repentance and remission of sins for all the nations, having begun from Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you. But stay ye in the city until ye are clothed with power from on high.

Therefore being evening that day, the first day of the week, and the doors having been shut where the disciples were who assembled because of fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and says to them, Peace to you. And having said this, he showed them his hands and side. His disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus therefore said to them again, Peace to you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you. read more.
And after saying this, he breathed on them, and says to them, Receive ye Holy Spirit. If ye forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them. If ye retain of any, they are retained.







but his bow abode in strength. And the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (From there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel),


And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David. He shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

And my servant David shall be king over them, and they all shall have one shepherd. They shall also walk in my ordinances, and observe my statutes, and do them.


where the forerunner, Jesus, entered for us, having become a high priest into the age according to the order of Melchizedek.


(And just as he says in another, Thou are a priest into the age according to the order of Melchizedek.)

And it is still far more evident, if according to the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest,

For he testifies, Thou are a priest into the age according to the order of Melchizedek.


And they come to Jericho. And as he went out from Jericho, and his disciples and a considerable crowd, Bartimaeus, the blind son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, Jesus, thou son of David, be merciful to me. And many rebuked him, that he would be quiet, but he cried out much more, Thou son of David, be merciful to me. read more.
And having stood still, Jesus said for him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying to him, Cheer up. Arise, he calls thee. And he, having thrown off his garment, having risen, came to Jesus. And having answered, Jesus says to him, What do thou wish I would do for thee? And the blind man said to him, Rabboni, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said to him, Go thou, thy faith has healed thee. And straightaway he received his sight, and followed him on the way.

And when they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, having heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, Be merciful to us, Lord, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them, so that they would be quiet, but they cried out greater, saying, Be merciful to us, Lord, thou son of David. read more.
And having stood still, Jesus called them and said, What do ye want that I would do to you? They say to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. And having felt compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and straightaway they received their sight, and followed him.

And it came to pass as he approached Jericho, a certain blind man sat beside the road begging. And having heard a multitude going by, he inquired what this may be. And they informed him that Jesus the Nazarene passes by. read more.
And he cried out, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, be merciful to me. And those who went ahead rebuked him, so that he would be quiet, but he cried out much more, Thou son of David, be merciful to me. And having stood still, Jesus commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he questioned him, saying, What do thou want that I would do to thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive sight. And Jesus said to him, Receive sight. Thy faith has healed thee. And immediately he received sight, and followed him glorifying God. And all the people when they saw it gave praise to God.


Then the Pharisees having departed, they took counsel how they might trap him in his talk. And they send out their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying, Teacher, we know that thou are true, and teach the way of God in truth, and it is not a concern to thee about a man, for thou look not to the personage of men. Tell us therefore, what does it seem to thee? Is it permitted to give tribute to Caesar or not? read more.
But Jesus having known their wickedness, said, Why do ye tempt me, ye hypocrites? Exhibit to me the tribute money. And they brought to him a denarius. And he says to them, Whose is this image and inscription? They say to him, Caesar's. Then he says to them, Therefore, render the things of Caesar to Caesar, and the things of God to God. And when they heard it, they marveled. And having left him, they departed.

And they send some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians to him, so that they might catch him in talk. And when they came, they say to him, Teacher, we have seen that thou are true, and it is not a care to thee about any man, for thou look not to a personage of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it permitted to give tribute Should we give, or should we not give? But Jesus, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, Why do ye test me? Bring me a denarius, so that I may see it. read more.
And they brought it. And he says to them, Whose is this image and inscription? And they said to him, Caesar's. And having answered, Jesus said to them, Render the things of Caesar to Caesar, and the things of God to God. And they marveled at him.

And having watched him, they sent forth insidious men pretending themselves to be righteous, so that they might take hold of his word, in order to deliver him up to the rule and to the authority of the governor. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, we know that thou speak and teach rightly, and thou do not accept a personage, but teach the way of God in truth, Is it permitted for us to give tribute to Caesar or not? read more.
But having perceived their craftiness, he said to them, Why do ye try me? Display to me a denarius. Whose image and inscription has it? And having answered, they said, Caesar's. And he said to them, Then render the things of Caesar to Caesar, and the things of God to God. And they were unable to lay hold of his word before the people. And having marveled at his answer, they were silent.


And behold one man having come to him, said, Good teacher, what good thing should I do so that I may have eternal life? And he said to him, Why do thou call me good? There is none good except one, God. But if thou want to enter into life, keep the commandments. He says to him, Which? And Jesus said, Thou shall not murder. Thou shall not commit adultery. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not testify falsely. read more.
Honor the father and mother, and, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. The young man says to him, All these things I have kept from my youthfulness. What do I lack yet? Jesus said to him, If thou want to be perfect, go, sell the things being possessed by thee, and give to the poor, and thou will have treasure in heaven. And come, follow me. But when the young man heard the saying, he went away sorrowing, for he was having many possessions.

And as he was going forth on the way, one man having ran to him, and having knelt to him, questioned him, Good teacher, what should I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said to him, Why do thou call me good? None is good except one, God. Thou know the commandments. Thou shall not commit adultery. Thou shall not murder. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not testify falsely. Thou shall not defraud. Thou shall honor thy father and mother. read more.
And having answered, he said to him, Teacher, all these things I have observed from my youth. And having looked at him, Jesus loved him, and said to him, One thing thou lack. Go thou, sell as many things as thou have, and give to the poor, and thou will have treasure in heaven. And after taking up the cross, come, follow me But having become somber at the saying, he went away sorrowing, for he was a man who has many possessions.

And a certain ruler questioned him, saying, Good teacher, having done what, will I inherit eternal life? And Jesus said to him, Why do thou call me good? None is good except one, God. Thou know the commandments. Thou shall not commit adultery. Thou shall not murder. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not give FALSE testimony. Honor thy father and thy mother. read more.
And he said, All these things I have kept from my youth. And when he heard these things, Jesus said to him, Yet one thing is lacking from thee. Sell all things, as many as thou have, and distribute to the poor, and thou will have treasure in heaven. And come, follow me. But when he heard these things, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And having seen him become very sorrowful, Jesus said, How difficultly those who have riches will enter into the kingdom of God.


On that day Sadducees came to him, those who claim to be no resurrection. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, Moses said, If some man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed to his brother. Now there were with us seven brothers. And the first having married perished. And having no seed left his wife to his brother. read more.
Likewise also the second, and the third, until the seventh. And last of all, the woman also died. In the resurrection therefore, which of the seven will she be wife? For they all had her. But having answered, Jesus said to them, Ye are led astray, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as agents of God in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not God of the dead, but of the living. And when the multitudes heard it, they were astonished at his doctrine.

And Sadducees come to him, who say there is no resurrection. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If a man's brother dies, and leaves behind a wife, and leaves no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed for his brother. There were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. read more.
And the second took her, and died, neither did he leave seed behind, and the third likewise. And the seven took her, and left no seed. Last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection when they rise, whose wife will she be of them? For the seven had her as wife. And having answered, Jesus said to them, Are ye not led astray because of this: not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as agents in the heavens. But about the dead, that they rise, have ye not read in the book of Moses, how God spoke to him at the bush, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but God of the living. Ye therefore are much misled.

And some of the Sadducees having approached, those who say there is no resurrection, they questioned him, saying, Teacher, Moses wrote to us, if any brother dies, having a wife, and this man dies childless, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother. There were therefore seven brothers. And the first having taken a wife, died childless. read more.
And the second took the woman, and this man died childless. And the third likewise took her, and likewise also the seven; they left behind no children, and died. And last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection therefore whose wife of them does she become? For the seven had her as wife. And having answered, Jesus said to them, The sons of this age marry, and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage. For neither can they die any more, for they are like the heavenly agents, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed at the Bush when he calls Lord, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him. And some of the scholars having answered, they said, Teacher, thou said well. For they no longer dared to question him anything.


And they were on the road going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going ahead of them. And they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. And again having summoned the twelve, he began to tell them the things that were going to Behold, we go up to Jerusalem. And the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scholars. And they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Gentiles. And they will mock him, and will scourge, and will spit upon him, and will kill him. And the third day he will rise.

And while going up to Jerusalem, Jesus took the twelve disciples in private on the way, and he said to them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man will be betrayed to the chief priests and scholars. And they will condemn him to death, and will deliver him to the Gentiles to ridicule, and to scourge, and to crucify. And the third day he will rise.

And having taken along the twelve, he said to them, Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all the things that are written through the prophets about the Son of man will be completed. For he will be delivered up to the Gentiles, and he will be mocked and insulted and spit upon. And after scourging, they will kill him, and the third day he will rise up. read more.
And they understood none of these things, and this saying was hidden from them, and they did not understand the things that were said.


And they brought children to him, so that he would touch them. And the disciples rebuked those who were bringing them. But when Jesus saw it, he was displeased, and said to them, Allow the children to come to me. Forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a child, he will, no, not enter it. read more.
And having embraced them, while laying his hands upon them, he blessed them.

Then children were brought to him, so that he would lay his hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Allow the children, and do not forbid them to come to me, for of such kind is the kingdom of the heavens. And having laid his hands on them, he departed from there.

And they were also bringing the infants to him, so that he would touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But having summoned them, Jesus said, Allow the children to come to me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a child, will, no, not enter into it.


And when they went out from Jericho, a great multitude followed him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, having heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, Be merciful to us, Lord, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them, so that they would be quiet, but they cried out greater, saying, Be merciful to us, Lord, thou son of David. read more.
And having stood still, Jesus called them and said, What do ye want that I would do to you? They say to him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. And having felt compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and straightaway they received their sight, and followed him.

And it came to pass as he approached Jericho, a certain blind man sat beside the road begging. And having heard a multitude going by, he inquired what this may be. And they informed him that Jesus the Nazarene passes by. read more.
And he cried out, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, be merciful to me. And those who went ahead rebuked him, so that he would be quiet, but he cried out much more, Thou son of David, be merciful to me. And having stood still, Jesus commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he questioned him, saying, What do thou want that I would do to thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive sight. And Jesus said to him, Receive sight. Thy faith has healed thee. And immediately he received sight, and followed him glorifying God. And all the people when they saw it gave praise to God.

And they come to Jericho. And as he went out from Jericho, and his disciples and a considerable crowd, Bartimaeus, the blind son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road begging.

And having stood still, Jesus said for him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying to him, Cheer up. Arise, he calls thee. And he, having thrown off his garment, having risen, came to Jesus.



Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name above every name,




And straightaway Jesus compelled the disciples to enter into the boat, and to go ahead of him to the other side, until he would dismiss the multitudes. And having dismissed the multitudes, he went up onto the mountain in private to pray. And having become evening, he was there alone. But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, being buffeted by the waves, for the wind was contrary. read more.
And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking upon the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost, and they cried out from fear. But straightaway Jesus spoke to them, saying, Cheer up. It is I, fear not. And having answered him, Peter said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee on the waters. And he said, Come. And having come down from the boat, Peter walked upon the water to go to Jesus. But seeing the boisterous wind, he was afraid, and having begun to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. And straightaway having stretched forth his hand, Jesus took hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why did thou doubt? And when they entered into the boat, the wind ceased. And those who came in the boat worshiped him, saying, Thou really are the Son of God.

And straightaway he compelled his disciples to enter into the boat, and to go ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he himself would send the crowd away. And after sending them away, he departed onto the mountain to pray. And having become evening, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. read more.
And he saw them toiling in rowing, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he comes to them, walking on the sea, and wanted to passed by them. But they, when they saw him walking on the sea, supposed it to be a ghost, and cried out. For they all saw him, and were troubled. And straightaway he spoke with them, and says to them, Cheer up. It is I, fear not. And he went up to them into the boat, and the wind ceased. And they were exceedingly amazed in themselves, extraordinarily so. And they wondered, for they did not understand about the loaves, for their heart was hardened.

When therefore the men saw what sign Jesus did, they said, This really is the prophet who comes into the world. Jesus therefore having perceived that they are going to come and seize him, so that they might make him king, departed onto the mountain himself alone. And when it became evening his disciples went down to the sea, read more.
and having entered into the boat, they were going to the other side of the sea toward Capernaum. And it had already become dark, and Jesus had not come to them. And the sea was being raised by a great wind blowing. Therefore having impelled forward about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and coming near to the boat, and they were afraid. But he says to them, It is I, fear not. They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat, and straightaway the boat came to be at the land to which they were going.


He set forth another parable to them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is like a grain of mustard plant, which having taken, a man sowed in his field. Which indeed is smaller than all seeds, but when it is grown, it is greater than the plants, and becomes a tree, so as for the birds of the sky to come and lodge in the branches of it.

And he said, What is the kingdom of God like, and to what will I compare it? It is like a grain of a mustard plant, which having taken, a man cast into his own garden. And it grew and developed into a great tree, and the birds of the sky lodged in the branches if it.

And he said, To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or by what parable shall we compare it? It is like a grain of the mustard plant, which, when it is sown in the ground, is smaller than all the seeds upon the ground. Yet when it is sown, it goes up and becomes greater than all the plants, and it makes great branches, so that the birds of the sky can lodge under the shade of it.


Now on the first day of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Where do thou want that we should prepare for thee to eat the Passover? And he said, Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, The teacher says, My time is near. I keep the Passover with my disciples with thee. And the disciples did as Jesus arranged for them, and they prepared the Passover. read more.
Now having become evening, he was sitting with the twelve. And as they were eating, he said, Truly I say to you, that one of you will betray me. And being exceedingly sorrowful, they began, each of them, to say to him, Is it I, Lord? And having answered, he said, He who dipped his hand with me in the dish, this man will betray me. The Son of man indeed goes as it is written about him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It were good for him if that man had not been born. And Judas (the man who betrayed him) having answered, he said, Is it I, Rabbi? He says to him, Thou have said. And as they were eating, Jesus, having taken bread, having expressed thanks, broke in pieces, and he gave to the disciples, and said, Take, eat, this is my body. And having taken the cup, having expressed thanks, he gave to them, saying, All ye drink of it, for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed on behalf of many for remission of sins. But I say to you, that I will, no, not drink of this fruit of the grapevine henceforth until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. And having sung a hymn, they went out to the mount of Olives.

And on the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the Passover, his disciples say to him, Where do thou want, after going, we should prepare that thou may eat the Passover? And he sends forth two of his disciples, and says to them, Go into the city, and a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. And wherever he may enter, say ye to the house-ruler, The teacher says, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? read more.
And he himself will show you a large upper room spread out ready. Prepare ye for us there. And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found just as he had said to them. And they prepared the Passover. And having become evening he comes with the twelve. And as they were relaxing and eating, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, that one of you eating with me will betray me. They began to be sorrowful, and to say to him one by one, Not I? and another, Not I? And having answered, he said to them, It is one of the twelve dipping with me in the dish. The Son of man indeed goes as it is written about him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It was good for him if that man was not born. And as they were eating, Jesus having taken bread, having blessed, he broke in pieces, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat, this is my body. And after taking the cup, having expressed thanks, he gave to them, and they all drank from it. And he said to them, This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many. Truly I say to you, that I will no more drink of the fruit of the grapevine, until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God.

And the day of unleavened bread came during which it was necessary to kill the Passover. And he sent Peter and John, saying, After departing, prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat. And they said to him, Where do thou want that we should prepare? read more.
And he said to them, Behold, having entered into the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him into the house where he enters. And ye shall say to the house-ruler, The teacher says to thee, Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? And he will show you a large upper room furnished. Prepare there. And having gone, they found just as he said to them, and they prepared the Passover. And when the hour came, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said to them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before my suffering. For I say to you, that I will eat of it no more, no, not till when it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And having taken a cup, having expressed thanks, he said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves. For I say to you, that I will, no, not drink from the fruit of the grapevine till when the kingdom of God comes. And after taking bread, having expressed thanks, he broke in pieces, and gave to them, saying, This is my body that is given for you. Do ye this in my memory. Likewise also the cup after dining, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood being shed for you.


Then a blind and mute man being demon possessed, was brought to him. And he healed him, so as for the blind and mute man both to speak and to see. And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, Is this not the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This man does not cast out demons, except by Beelzebub the ruler of the demons. read more.
And having known their thoughts Jesus said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to ruin, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Because of this they will be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come near you. Or how can any man enter into the house of the strong man, and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. Because of this I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy of the spirit will not be forgiven men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, neither in the present age, nor in the one that is coming. Either make the tree good, and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt, for the tree is known by its fruit. Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you, that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they will render account about it in the day of judgment. For from thy words thou will be justified, and from thy words thou will be condemned.

and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. And they come to a house. And the multitude comes together again, so as for them, no, not even to be able to eat bread. And when those with him heard it, they went out to grasp him, for they said, He is beside himself. read more.
And the scholars who came down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the ruler of the demons he casts out the demons. And having summoned them, he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan has rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. But no man, having enter into the house of the strong man, can plunder his goods unless he first binds the strong man, and then he may plunder his house. Truly I say to you, that all the sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and the blasphemies, as many as they may blaspheme. But whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness, into the age, but is deserving of eternal damnation, because they said, He has an unclean spirit.

And he was casting out a demon, and it was mute. And it happened when the demon was gone out, the mute man spoke. And the multitudes marveled, but some of them said, He casts out the demons by Beelzebub, ruler of the demons. And others, challenging, sought from him a sign from the sky. read more.
But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, Every kingdom that was divided against itself is made desolate, and a house against a house falls. And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom be made to stand? Because ye say that I cast out the demons by Beelzebub. And if I cast out the demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Because of this they will be your judges. But if by a finger of God I cast out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When the fully armed strong man guards his palace, the things possessed by him are in peace, but when a stronger than he comes, after defeating him, he takes away his full armor in which he trusted, and divides his booty. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. When the unclean spirit departs out of the man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest. And not finding, it says, I will return to my house from where I came out. And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it goes, and takes along seven other spirits more evil than itself, and having enter in, it dwells there. And the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.


And straightaway Jesus compelled the disciples to enter into the boat, and to go ahead of him to the other side, until he would dismiss the multitudes. And having dismissed the multitudes, he went up onto the mountain in private to pray. And having become evening, he was there alone. But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, being buffeted by the waves, for the wind was contrary. read more.
And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking upon the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost, and they cried out from fear. But straightaway Jesus spoke to them, saying, Cheer up. It is I, fear not. And having answered him, Peter said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee on the waters. And he said, Come. And having come down from the boat, Peter walked upon the water to go to Jesus. But seeing the boisterous wind, he was afraid, and having begun to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. And straightaway having stretched forth his hand, Jesus took hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why did thou doubt? And when they entered into the boat, the wind ceased. And those who came in the boat worshiped him, saying, Thou really are the Son of God. And when they crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. And when they recognized him, the men of that place sent into that whole region round about, and brought to him all those faring badly. And they besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment. And as many as touched were healed.

And straightaway he compelled his disciples to enter into the boat, and to go ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he himself would send the crowd away. And after sending them away, he departed onto the mountain to pray. And having become evening, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. read more.
And he saw them toiling in rowing, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he comes to them, walking on the sea, and wanted to passed by them. But they, when they saw him walking on the sea, supposed it to be a ghost, and cried out. For they all saw him, and were troubled. And straightaway he spoke with them, and says to them, Cheer up. It is I, fear not. And he went up to them into the boat, and the wind ceased. And they were exceedingly amazed in themselves, extraordinarily so. And they wondered, for they did not understand about the loaves, for their heart was hardened. And having crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret, and moored to the shore. And when they came out of the boat, straightaway, having recognized him, after running around that whole region around, they began to carry about on beds those who were faring badly, where they heard he was there. And wherever he entered, into villages or cities or fields, they laid those who were feeble in the marketplaces, and besought him that if they might but touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched him were being healed.

Jesus therefore having perceived that they are going to come and seize him, so that they might make him king, departed onto the mountain himself alone. And when it became evening his disciples went down to the sea, and having entered into the boat, they were going to the other side of the sea toward Capernaum. And it had already become dark, and Jesus had not come to them. read more.
And the sea was being raised by a great wind blowing. Therefore having impelled forward about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and coming near to the boat, and they were afraid. But he says to them, It is I, fear not. They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat, and straightaway the boat came to be at the land to which they were going.


And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee. And a report went out about him through the entire region around.

Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the good-news of God,

Now when Jesus heard that John was delivered up, he departed into Galilee.

When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and immersing more disciples than John (although Jesus himself did not immerse, but his disciples), he left Judea, and departed into Galilee.


And they were all amazed, so as to question among themselves, saying, What is this? What is this new doctrine, that he commands with authority, and the unclean spirits also obey him?

And having come into his fatherland he taught them in their synagogue, so as for them to be astonished, and say, From where is this wisdom and powers in this man?

The subordinates answered, A man never so spoke like this man.

and they were astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority.


And when they came to the multitude, a man came to him, kneeling to him, and saying, Lord, be merciful to my son, because he is lunatic, and suffers badly. For he often falls into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heal him. read more.
And having answered, Jesus said, O faithless and perverted generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him here to me. And Jesus rebuked it, and the demon departed from him. And the boy was cured from that hour. Then the disciples having come to Jesus in private, said, Why could we not cast it out? And Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief. For truly I say to you, if ye have faith as a grain of a mustard plant, ye will say to this mountain, Remove from here to there, and it will depart, and nothing will be impossible t But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

And when they came to the disciples he saw a great multitude around them, and scholars disputing with them. And straightaway all the multitude, having noticed him, were startled. And running near they greeted him. And he questioned the scholars, What are ye disputing with them? read more.
And having answered, one from the multitude said, Teacher, I brought my son to thee, who has a mute spirit. And wherever it seizes him, it tears him, and he foams, and gnashes his teeth, and becomes limp. And I spoke to thy disciples that they might cast it out, and they were not able. And having answered him, he says, O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him to me. And they brought him to him. And when he saw him, straightaway the spirit convulsed him. And having fallen on the ground, he wallowed, foaming. And he questioned his father, How much time is it since this has happened to him? And he said, From childhood. And it often casts him both into the fire and into the waters so that it might destroy him. But if thou can do anything, help us, having compassion toward us. And Jesus said to him, If thou are able to believe, all things are possible to him who believes. And straightaway the father of the child having cried out, he said with tears, I believe. Lord, help thou my unbelief. And when Jesus saw that a crowd was running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, Thou mute and deaf spirit, I command thee to come out of him, and enter into him no more. And having cried out, and having convulsed him much, it came out. And he became as if dead, so as for many to said that he was dead. But having taken him by the hand, Jesus lifted him up, and he arose. And when he came into the house, his disciples questioned him privately, We were not able to cast it out. And he said to them, This kind can come out by nothing, except by prayer and fasting.

And it came to pass, on the next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. And behold, a man from the crowd cried out, saying, Teacher, I beseech thee to look upon my son, because he is the only begotten to me. And lo, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out, and it convulses him with foaming. And it departs from him difficultly, injuring him. read more.
And I begged thy disciples that they might cast it out, and they could not. And having answered, Jesus said, O faithless and perverted generation, how long will I be with you and endure you? Bring thy son here. And as he was still a coming, the demon tore him, and he convulsed. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. And they were all amazed at the majesty of God. But while all were wondering at all the things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples,


And he began to speak to them in parables. A man planted a vineyard, and set up a hedge, and dug a winevat, and built a tower, and leased it to farmers, and went on a journey. And at the season he sent forth a bondman to the farmers, so that he might receive by the farmers from the fruit of the vineyard. And having seized him, they beat him, and sent him away empty. read more.
And again he sent another bondman to them. And that man, having stoned, they wounded in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated. And again he sent another, and that man they killed, and many others, beating some, and killing some. Therefore, still having his one beloved son, he also sent him to them, last, saying, They will be made ashamed by my son. But those farmers said among themselves, This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours. And having taken him, they killed him, and cast him outside of the vineyard. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the farmers, and will give the vineyard to others. And have ye not read this scripture: The stone that those who build rejected, this came to be into the head of the corner. This happened from Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes? And they sought to seize him. And they feared the multitude, for they knew that he spoke the parable against them. And having left him, they went away.

Hear ye another parable. There was a certain man who was a house-ruler, who planted a vineyard, and placed a hedge around it, and dug a winepress in it, and built a tower, and leased it to farmers, and went on a journey. And when the time of the fruits approached, he sent his bondmen to the farmers to receive his fruits. And the farmers having taken his bondmen, they beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. read more.
Again, he sent other bondmen more than the first, and they did to them in like manner. But finally he sent to them his son, saying, They will be made ashamed by my son. But the farmers, when they saw the son, said among themselves, This is the heir, come, let us kill him, and possess his inheritance. And having seized him, they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. When therefore the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers? They say to him, Evil men, he will miserably destroy them, and will lease out the vineyard to other farmers, who will render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus says to them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone that those who build rejected, this came to be in the head of the corner. This happened from Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Because of this I say to you, that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and will be given to a nation producing the fruits of it. And he who falls on this stone will be shattered, but on whomever it may fall, it will grind him to dust.

And he began to speak this parable to the people. A man planted a vineyard, and leased it to farmers, and went abroad for a considerable time. And at the season he sent a bondman to the farmers, so that they would give him from the fruit of the vineyard. But having beaten him, the farmers sent him away empty. And he proceeded to send another bondman. And they, having beaten and shamefully treated, sent him also away empty. read more.
And he proceeded to send a third. And they also having wounded this man, cast him out. And the lord of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Perhaps they will be made ashamed after seeing this man. But when the farmers saw him, they deliberated among themselves, saying, This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, so that the inheritance may become ours. And having cast him outside of the vineyard, they killed him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy these farmers, and will give the vineyard to others. And having heard it, they said, May it not happen! But having looked upon them, he said, What then is this that is written, The stone that those who build rejected, this became the head of the corner? Every man who falls on that stone will be broken, but on whomever it may fall, it will grind him to dust.





If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also. And from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip says to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. Jesus says to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and thou do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. And how can thou say, Show us the Father? read more.
Do thou not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The sayings that I speak to you I speak not from myself, but the Father who dwells in me, he does the works.

And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them.


And while they turned back in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him, and the third day he will be raised up. And they were exceedingly sorry.

And having departed from there, they passed through Galilee, and he did not want that any man would know it. For he taught his disciples, and said to them, The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And after being killed, he will rise the third day. But they did not understand the saying, and were afraid to question him.

And they were all amazed at the majesty of God. But while all were wondering at all the things which Jesus did, he said to his disciples, Place ye these sayings into your ears, for the Son of man is going to be delivered up into the hands of men. But they did not understand this saying, and it was concealed from them, so that they did not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying.


And when they came to the multitude, a man came to him, kneeling to him, and saying, Lord, be merciful to my son, because he is lunatic, and suffers badly. For he often falls into the fire, and often into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heal him. read more.

Therefore indeed, the Lord, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And those men, having gone forth, they preached everywhere, the Lord working jointly, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Truly.

And he led them outside as far as to Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. And it came to pass while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was brought up into heaven. And having worshiping him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy, read more.
and they were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Truly.

And having said these things, as they were watching, he was taken up, and a cloud received him from their eyes. And while they were gazing at his going into the sky, behold, two men had also stood by them in white apparel, who also said, Men, Galileans, why stand ye gazing into the sky? This Jesus who was taken up from you into the sky will so come, in that same way as ye saw him going into the sky. read more.
Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mountain called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem having a Sabbath day journey.

Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods? If he designated those men gods, for whom the word of God came to be (and the scripture cannot be broken), whom the Father made holy and sent into the world, do ye say, Thou blaspheme, because I said, I am the Son of God? read more.
If I am not doing the works of my Father, do not believe me. But if I am doing them, even though ye do not believe me, believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the him.

Jesus says to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father, except by me. If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also. And from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip says to him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. read more.
Jesus says to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and thou do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. And how can thou say, Show us the Father? Do thou not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The sayings that I speak to you I speak not from myself, but the Father who dwells in me, he does the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me. But if not, believe me because of the works themselves.

Jesus spoke these things, and he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify thy Son, that the Son may also glorify thee, just as thou gave him authority over all flesh, so that all things that thou have given him, he will give them eternal life. And this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only TRUE God, and Jesus Christ whom thou sent. read more.
I glorified thee on the earth. I finished the work which thou have given me that I should do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thyself with the glory that I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name to the men whom thou gave me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gave them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things, as many as thou gave me are from thee. Because the sayings that thou gave to me, I gave to them. And they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou sent me. I pray about them. I do not pray about the world, but about whom thou have given me, because they are for thee. And all my things are thy things, and thy things are my things, and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name that thou have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name. Whom thou gave to me, I kept, and none of them was destroyed, except the son of destruction, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee. And I speak these things in the world, so that they may have my joy fulfilled in them. I have given them thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in thy truth. Thy word is truth. Just as thou sent me into the world, so also I sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they may also themselves be sanctified in truth. And I pray not about these only, but also about those who believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, just as thou, Father, are in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou sent me. And I, the glory that thou have given me, I have given to them, so that they may be one, just as we are one, I in them, and thou in me, that they may be fully perfected in one, and so that the world may know that thou sent me, and loved them, just as thou loved me.




And no man has ascended into heaven, except he who came down out of heaven: the Son of man who is in heaven.



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