What, then, if ye behold the Son of Man ascending where He was before?




God, having in many parts and many ways spoken, of old, to the fathers in the prophets, at the end of these days spake to us in His Son, Whom He appointed Heir of all things, through Whom also He constituted the ages;



but respecting the Son, "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever"; and, "A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Thy Kingdom; Thou lovedst righteousness, and hatedst iniquity; therefore, God, Thy God, anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows"; and, "Thou, Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Thy hands. read more.
They shall perish, but Thou continuest; and they will all become old as does a garment; and as a mantle Thou wilt roll them up, as a garment also they shall be changed; but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail."

Because, of Him, and through Him, and for Him, are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and apart from Him was not even one thing made that has been made.

Abraham, your father, rejoiced to see My day; and he saw it, and was glad." The Jews, therefore, said to Him, "Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast Thou seen Abraham?" Jesus said to them, "Verily, verily, I say to you, before Abraham existed, I am."

Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; Who, existing originally in the form of God, accounted it not a prize to he equal with God. but emptied Himself, taking a slave's form, coming to be in the likeness of men;

Who is the image of the invisible God, Primal Source of all creation; because in Him were all things created, in the heavens, and upon the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers??ll things have been created through Him, and for Him; and He is before all things, and in Him all things have held together.

Since, therefore, the children have partaken of blood and flesh, He Himself also in like manner took part of the same; that, through death, He might bring to nought him who had the power of death, that is, the Devil; and might release all those who, through fear of death, were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For surely He doth not succor angels, but He succoreth Abraham's seed.

For, had Joshua given them rest, He would not afterward have spoken of another day.



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



Jesus, therefore, said, "Suffer her to keep it for the day of My burial;

Behold, an hour is coming, and has come, that ye should be scattered, each to his own, and leave Me alone; and I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.

"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the high-priests and scribes; and they will condemn Him to death; and will deliver Him up to the gentiles, to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify; and, on the third day, He will be raised up "

And He, answering, said to them, "An evil and adulterous generation is seeking after a sign; and no sign shall be given to it, except the sign of Jonah the prophet. For, as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

And, while they were assembled together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men; and they will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised up." And they were grieved exceedingly.

"Ye know that, after two days, the passover takes place, and the Son of Man is delivered up to be crucified."

and, as they were eating, He said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me."

And He, answering, said, "He who dipped with Me his hand in the dish, the same will betray Me. The Son of Man, indeed, goeth, as it has been written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It were good for him, if that man had never been born!"

Then He cometh to the disciples, and saith to them, "Sleep on the remaining time, and take your rest. Behold the hour has drawn near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going. Behold, he who is betraying Me is at hand."

For He was teaching His disciples, and said to them, "The Son of Man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and, having been killed, after three days He will rise again."

And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus was going before them. And they were being amazed: and those following Him were being terrified. And, again taking with Him the twelve, He began to tell them the things about to happen to Him: "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered up to the high priests, and to the scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, and will deliver Him up to the gentiles; and they will mock Him and will spit upon Him, and will scourge Him, and will kill Him; and after three days He will rise again."

saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and high priests, and scribes; and be killed, and on the third day be raised up." And He said to all, "If any one wishes to come after Me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whosoever wishes to save his soul shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his soul for My sake, the same shall save it.

And, taking the twelve aside, He said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and all the things, written through the prophets respecting the Son of Man, will be accomplished; for He will be delivered up to the gentiles, and will be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon, and they will scourge Him, and kill Him; and, on the third day, He will rise again."

I speak not concerning all of you: I know whom I chose; but, that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He that eats My bread lifted up his heel against Me.' From this time, I tell you before it comes to pass; that, when it comes to pass, ye may believe that I am He. Verily, verily, I say to you, he who receives whomsoever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me." read more.
Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, "Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me." The disciples were looking one on another, doubting about whom He was speaking. There was at the table reclining in Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter, therefore, beckons to this one, and says to him, "Tell us who it is about whom He is speaking." He, leaning back as he was on the breast of Jesus, says to Him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus, therefore, answereth, "He it is for whom I shall dip the morsel, and give it to him." Having, therefore, dipped the morsel, He taketh and giveth it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him. Jesus, therefore, saith to him, "What you do, do quickly."

Simon Peter says to Him, "Lord, where art Thou going?" Jesus answered, "Where I go, you cannot follow Me now; but you will follow Me later." Peter says to Him, "Why can I not follow Thee even now? I will lay down my soul for Thee." Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your soul for Me? Verily, verily, I say to you, a cock shall not crow, till you thrice deny Me."



Jesus, therefore, said to Peter, "Put up the sword into the sheathe. The cup which the Father hath given Me, shall I not drink it?"




Who hath no necessity daily, as the high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for his own sins, and then for those of the people (for this He did once for all, when He offered up Himself);

On this account My Father loveth Me, because I lay down My soul, that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it again. This commandment I received from My Father.


else had it been needful for Him ofttimes to suffer since the founding of a world; but now, once for all, at the end of the ages, He hath been manifested for the putting away of sin through the sacrifice of Himself.

But I have an immersion to be immersed with; and how am I constrained until it be accomplished!



Again, a second time, going away, He prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is not possible that this cup should pass away except I drink it, Thy will be done,"

Jesus answered, "I told you that I am He; if, therefore, ye are seeking Me, permit these to go their way;"

And He said to them, "With desire I desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

The Son of Man, indeed, goeth, as it has been written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It were good for him, if that man had never been born!"

Or do you think that I cannot call upon My Father, and He will place beside Me, even now, more than twelve legions of angels? How, then, could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?"

And, going away again, He prayed, saying the same thing.

And it came to pass, when the days for receiving Him up were being completed, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem;

They answered Him, "Jesus, the Nazarene." Jesus saith to them, "I am He." And Judas also, who betrayed Him, was standing with them.



But, seeing it, the Pharisee who invited Him, spake in himself, saying, "This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what sort of woman this is that is touching Him, because she is a sinner."

And the multitudes said, "This is the Prophet, Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee."

And, while seeking to lay hold on Him, they feared the multitudes, since they were holding Him as a prophet.

And fear seized on all; and they were glorifying God, saying, "A great prophet was raised up among us," and "God did visit His people."

But yet I must go on My way to-day, and to-morrow, and the following day; because it is not possible that a prophet perish outside of Jerusalem!'

And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who was a Prophet, mighty in deed and word, before God and all the people:


The men, therefore, seeing the sign that He did, said, "This, truly, is the Prophet Who cometh into the world."

Some of the multitude, therefore, having heard these words, said, "Truly This is the Prophet;"

They say, therefore, to the blind man again, "What do you say about Him, seeing that He opened your eyes?" And he said, "He is a Prophet."

This man came to Jesus by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou hast come, as a Teacher, from God; for no one can do the signs which Thou art doing, unless God be with Him."


This is the Moses who said to the sons of Israel, A Prophet will God raise up for you of your brethren, as He did me.

And it shall be, that every soul that will not hearken to that Prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.'

how shall we escape, having neglected so great salvation; which, indeed, having at first been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard;

Moses, indeed, said, 'A prophet will the Lord your God raise up for you from among your brethren, as He did me; to Him shall ye hearken in all things, whatsoever He shall say to you. And it shall be, that every soul that will not hearken to that Prophet, shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.'


And, when He had said this, one of the officers standing by gave Jesus a blow with a rod, saying, "Dost Thou answer the high priest thus!" Jesus answered him, "If I spake evil, testify concerning the evil; but, if well, why do you beat Me?"

Jesus spake these things; and, lifting up His eyes to Heaven, said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee; even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh, that to all Whom Thou hast given Him He should give eternal life. And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send. read more.
I glorified Thee on the earth; having completed the work which Thou hast given Me to do. And, now, Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine Own Self, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was. I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world. Thine they were; and Thou gavest them to Me; and they have kept Thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou gavest Me are from Thee; because the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from Thee, and believed that Thou didst send Me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom Thou hast given Me; because they are Thine. And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world; and these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep, in Thine Own name, those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, even as we are. While I was with them, I was keeping, in Thy name, those Whom Thou hast given Me; and I guarded them, and no one of them perished, except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I come to Thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves. I have given them Thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.


For He Whom God sent speaketh the words of God; for He giveth not the Spirit by measure. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand.

They said, therefore, to Him, "Who art Thou?" Jesus said to them, "Even that which I am saying to you from the beginning. I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. But He Who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world." They perceived not that He was speaking to them of the Father. read more.
Jesus, therefore, said, "When ye lift up the Son of Man, then will ye know that I am He; and, of Myself, I do nothing, but, as the Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He Who sent Me is with Me. He hath not left Me alone; because I am always doing the things that please Him."

And Jesus cried, and said, "He who believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on Him Who sent Me; and he that beholds Me, beholds Him Who sent Me. I have come a light into the world, that every one who believes on Me may not abide in the darkness. read more.
And, if any one hears My words, and keeps them not, I do not judge him; for I came, not to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I spake not from Myself; but the Father, Who sent Me, Himself hath given Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is life eternal. What things, therefore, I speak, even as My Father hath told Me, so I speak."

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that bears not fruit, He taketh it away: and every one that bears fruit, He cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit. Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. read more.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, unless ye abide in Me. I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abides in Me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit; because, apart from Me, ye can do nothing. Unless one abides in Me, he was cast forth as a branch, and withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done to you. In this was My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, and become My disciples. Even as the Father loved Me, I also loved you; abide in My love. If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love. These things have I spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. This is My commandment, that ye love one another, even as I loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his soul for his friends. Ye are My friends, if ye do what I command you. No longer do I call you slaves; because the slave knows not what his lord is doing; but I have called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I made known to you.

His disciples say, "Lo, now Thou talkest plainly, and speakest no proverb: now we know that Thou knowest all things; and hast no need that any one should ask Thee: by this we believe that Thou didst come forth from God." Jesus answered them, "Do ye now believe? read more.
Behold, an hour is coming, and has come, that ye should be scattered, each to his own, and leave Me alone; and I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. These things have I spoken to you, that in Me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

The first narrative I made, O Theophilus, concerning all things that Jesus began both to do and to teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after having given commandment, through the Holy Spirit, to the apostles whom He chose; to whom He also presented Himself alive, after He suffered, by many proofs; being seen by them during forty days, and speaking the things concerning the Kingdom of God.


for He was teaching them as One having authority, and not as the scribes.

The first narrative I made, O Theophilus, concerning all things that Jesus began both to do and to teach,

But be not ye called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and all ye are brethren.


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

This man came to Jesus by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou hast come, as a Teacher, from God; for no one can do the signs which Thou art doing, unless God be with Him."

And it came to pass on another sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue, and taught. And there was a man there, and his right hand was withered.

And they send to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that Thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, and carest not for any one; for Thou dost not look into the face of men:

And, when He came into the temple, the high-priests and the elders of the people came to Him while He was teaching, saying, "By what authority art Thou doing these things? And who gave Thee this authority?"

And, coming, they say to Him, "Teacher, we know that Thou art true, and carest not for any one; for Thou lookest not into the face of men, but in truth teachest the way of God. Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?

And they asked Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that Thou sayest and teachest rightly, and regardest no person, but teachest the way of God in truth.

And, seeing the multitudes, He went up into the mountain; and, He having sat down, His disciples came to Him:

And it came to pass that, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, He departed thence to teach and preach in their cities.

In that hour Jesus saith to the multitudes, "Did ye come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs, to arrest Me? Daily with you, in the temple, I was wont to sit, teaching, and ye seized me not.

And again He began to teach by the seaside. And there is gathered to Him a very great multitude, so that He, having entered into a boat, was sitting in the sea; and all the multitude were by the sea on the land.

But they were the more urgent, saying, "He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judaea, and beginning from Galilee even to this place."


Then He poureth water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.




Now I, Paul, myself entreat you, through the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in your presence, indeed, am lowly among you; but, being absent, am bold toward you;


but emptied Himself, taking a slave's form, coming to be in the likeness of men; and, being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

For who is greater, he who reclines at table, or he who serves? Is not he who reclines? But I am in the midst of you as One Who serveth.

And it came to pass, as He was reclining at table in the house, behold, many tax-collectors and sinners, having come, were reclining with Jesus and His disciples.

And, after these things, He went forth, and beheld a tax-collector, Levi by name, sitting at the tax-office; and He said to him, "Follow Me." And, having forsaken all, rising up, he followed Him.

If, therefore, I, 'The Lord,' and 'The Teacher,' washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet;

Now the passage of the Scripture which he was reading was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and, as a lamb dumb before its shearer, so He openeth not His mouth. In His humiliation, His judgment was taken away; His generation who shall declare? because His life is being taken away from the earth."



They said, therefore, to Him, "Who art Thou?" Jesus said to them, "Even that which I am saying to you from the beginning. I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. But He Who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world." They perceived not that He was speaking to them of the Father. read more.
Jesus, therefore, said, "When ye lift up the Son of Man, then will ye know that I am He; and, of Myself, I do nothing, but, as the Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He Who sent Me is with Me. He hath not left Me alone; because I am always doing the things that please Him."


But He answered them, "My Father worketh even until now, and I work." For this cause, therefore, the Jews were seeking the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the sabbath, but also called God His Father, making Himself equal with God. Jesus, therefore, answered and said to them, "Verily, verily, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father doing; for whatsoever things He doeth, these also, in like manner, the Son doeth. read more.
For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth Him all things which He Himself doeth; and greater works than these will He show Him, that ye may marvel.

Jesus said to them, "I am the Bread of Life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes on Me shall never thirst. But I said to you, that ye have even seen Me, and do not believe. All that the Father giveth to Me shall come to Me; and him who comes to Me I will in no wise cast out; read more.
because I have come down from Heaven, not to do My Own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me.

Jesus answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents; but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. We must work the works of Him Who sent Me, while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work.

Jesus answered, and said to him, "If any one loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him. He who loves Me not, keeps not My words; and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me. "These things have I spoken to you, while abiding with you. read more.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and remind you of all things that I told you. "Peace I leave for you; My own peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled; neither let it be fearful. Ye heard that I said to you, 'I go away, and I come to you.' If ye loved Me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; because the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it comes to pass; that, when it comes to pass, ye may believe. I will no more speak much with you; for the Prince of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me; but, that the world may know that I love the Father, and, as the Father commanded Me, so I do, Arise, let us go hence."

Jesus spake these things; and, lifting up His eyes to Heaven, said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee; even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh, that to all Whom Thou hast given Him He should give eternal life. And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send. read more.
I glorified Thee on the earth; having completed the work which Thou hast given Me to do.

for it is impossible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore, coming into the world, He saith, "Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not wish, but a body didst Thou prepare for Me; in whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hadst no pleasure. read more.
Then said I, 'Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it has been written concerning Me), to do Thy will, O God.'" Saving above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt-offerings and offerings for sin," Thou didst not wish; neither hadst pleasure therein, which, indeed, are offered according to the law; then hath He said, "Lo, I have come to do Thy will." He taketh away the first, that He may establish the second: in which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.


Jesus, therefore, said to them, "Verily, verily, 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 that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day; for My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. read more.
He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, abides in Me, and I in him.

My little children, these things I write to you, that ye may not sin. And, if any one sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous. And He is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. And in this we know that we have known Him, if we keep His commandments. read more.
He who says, "I have known Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whosoever keeps His word, truly in him the love of God has been perfected: in this we know that we are in Him. He who says that he is abiding in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked.

Philip says to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices us." Jesus saith to him, "So long a time am I with you, and you do not know Me, Philip! He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how say you, 'Show us the Father?' Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I say to you, I speak not from Myself; but the Father, abiding in Me, doeth His works. read more.
Believe Me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; or, else, believe Me because of the works themselves. Verily, verily, I say to you, he that believes on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go to the Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, this will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it. "If ye love Me, ye will keep My commandments; and I will ask of the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, that He may be with you forever; the Spirit of truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it beholds Him not, neither knows Him: ye know Him, because He abideth with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world beholds Me no more; but ye behold Me; because I live, ye shall live also. In that day ye will know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you.

For ye behold your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are chosen; but God chose the foolish things of the world, that He might put to shame the wise; and God chose the weak things of the world, that He might put to shame the things that are strong; and the base things of the world, and things despised, did God choose, and the things that are not, that He might bring to nought the things that are; read more.
that no flesh should glory before God. But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who was made to us wisdom from God, also righteousness, and holiness, and redemption;

Beware, lest there should be any one who makes a spoil of you through his philosophy and vain deceits, according to the tradition of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to Christ; because in Him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily; and ye have been made complete in Him, Who is the Head of all principality and power; read more.
in Whom ye were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hand, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in your immersion, in which ye were also raised with Him through faith in the working of God, Who raised Him from the dead;

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, we have confidence toward God; and whatsoever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments, and do the things that are pleasing before Him. And this is the commandment, that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment. read more.
And he that keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him; and in this we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit Whom He gave to us.

We know that we are of God, and the whole world is lying in the evil one. And we know that the Son of God hath come, and hath given us understanding, that we may know the True One: and we are in the True One??n His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life.


Jesus saith to her, "Touch Me not; for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, "I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God."

The Lord Jesus, therefore, after He spake to them, was caught up into Heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

Then He opened their mind, that they might understand the Scriptures; and He said to them, "Thus it has been written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. read more.
Ye are witnesses of these things, And, behold, I send forth the promise of My Father upon you; but abide ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high." And He led them as far as to Bethany; and, lifting up His hands, He blessed them. And it came to pass that, while He was blessing them, He parted from them, and was borne up into Heaven.

And no one has ascended into Heaven, but He Who descended out of Heaven??he Son of Man [Who is in Heaven]. And, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;

Now, before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour came that He should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. And, supper being in progress, the Devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him, knowing that the Father gave all things into His hands, and that He came forth from God, and was going to God,

But to each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore, He saith, "Having ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men."

These are those who were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, a first fruit to God and to the Lamb.






And there came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls that were full of the seven last plagues, and spake with me, saying, "Come hither; I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."

And, when He took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having, each, a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

because the Lamb, Who is in the midst of the throne, will be their Shepherd, and will guide them to the fountains of the waters of life; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

And they sang the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and marvelous are Thy works, O Lord God, the Almighty; righteous and true are Thy ways, Thou King of the ages.

And I saw, and, behold, the Lamb, standing on the mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name, and the name of His Father, written on their foreheads.

And I saw, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth.

And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he was speaking as a dragon.

After these things I saw, and, behold, a great multitude, which no one could number, out of every nation, and of all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne, and before the Lamb, arrayed in white robes, and palms in their hands; and they cry with a great voice, saying, "Salvation to our God, Who sitteth on the throne, and to the Lamb!"

And I saw no temple in it; for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are the temple thereof. And the city has no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine upon it; for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.















There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one immersion, one God and Father of all, Who is over all, and through all, and in all.

Jesus answered them, "I told you, and ye did not believe: the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify concerning Me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of My sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; read more.
and I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, nor shall any one snatch them out of My hand. My Father, Who hath given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

Jesus answered, and said to him, "If any one loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him. He who loves Me not, keeps not My words; and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me. "These things have I spoken to you, while abiding with you. read more.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and remind you of all things that I told you. "Peace I leave for you; My own peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled; neither let it be fearful. Ye heard that I said to you, 'I go away, and I come to you.' If ye loved Me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; because the Father is greater than I.


Now I praise you, that you remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even as I delivered them to you. But I wish you to know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the wife is the husband, and the head of Christ is God.

And, when all things shall be subjected to Him, then will the Son also Himself be subjected to Him Who subjected all things to Him, that God may be all in all.


That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we gazed upon, and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life (and the Life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you The Eternal Life; Who, indeed, was with the Father, and was manifested to us); that which we have seen and heard we declare to you also, that ye also may have fellow-ship with us; and our fellowship also is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.

Who is the image of the invisible God, Primal Source of all creation; because in Him were all things created, in the heavens, and upon the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers??ll things have been created through Him, and for Him; and He is before all things, and in Him all things have held together.

Jesus spake these things; and, lifting up His eyes to Heaven, said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee; even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh, that to all Whom Thou hast given Him He should give eternal life. And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send. read more.

And there came to Him great multitudes, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others; and they cast them at His feet, and He healed them;

In that hour He cured many of diseases, and plagues, and evil spirits; and to many blind He bestowed sight.

This man came to Jesus by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou hast come, as a Teacher, from God; for no one can do the signs which Thou art doing, unless God be with Him."

And Jesus, coming forth, saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion over them, and healed their sick.

And Jesus was going about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people. And the report of Him went forth into all Syria; and they brought to Him all having ailments, afflicted with manifold diseases and torments, demoniacs, and lunatics, and paralytics; and He healed them.

And He healed many that were sick with many kinds of diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not permit the demons to speak, because they knew Him [to be the Christ].

And, when He was in Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed on His name, beholding His signs which He was doing.

and, descending with them, He stood upon a level place; and a large multitude of His disciples, and a great number of the people from all Judaea and Jerusalem, and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, were present, who came to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases; and those troubled with unclean spirits were being healed; and all the multitude were seeking to touch Him; because power was coming forth from Him, and was healing them all.


and said, "Verily I say to you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whosoever, therefore, shall humble himself as this little child, he is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

And He said to them, "Ye are from beneath; I am from above. Ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

Another parable He set before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven was likened to a man who sowed good seed in his field; and, while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares in the midst of the wheat, and went away. And, when the blade sprang up, and produced fruit, then appeared the tares also. read more.
And the servants of the house-holder, corning near, said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Whence, then, has it tares?' And he said to them, 'An enemy did this.' The servants say to him, 'Do you wish, then, that we, going, should gather them up?' He says, 'No; lest, while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with them. Suffer both to grow together until the harvest. And, in the season of harvest, I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them into bundles, with the view of burning them; but gather the wheat into my barn.'" Another parable He set before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man, having taken, sowed in his field: which, indeed, is less than all the seeds; but, when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the heaven come and roost in its branches." Another parable He spake to them: "The Kingdom of Heaven is like leaven, which a woman, taking, hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened." All these things Jesus spake to the multitudes in parables; and, without a parable, He was wont to speak nothing to them; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, "I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world." Then, leaving the multitudes, He went into the house; and His disciples came to Him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field." And, answering, He said, "He that sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world: and the good seed, these are the sons of the Kingdom; but the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy that sowed them is the Devil; and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels. As, therefore, the tares are gathered up, and are burned with fire, so shall it be in the end of the age. The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of the Kingdom all the stumbling-blocks, and those who do iniquity; and they 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 that has ears let him hear. "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid; and in his joy he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls; and, having found one pearl of great price, departing, he has sold all that he had, and bought it. "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a net, cast into the sea, and gathering of every kind; which, when it was filled having drawn it up again upon the beach, and sitting down, they gathered the good into vessels, but cast away the bad. So will it be at the end of the age. The angels will go forth, and will separate the wicked from the midst of the righteous, and will cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping, and the gnashing of teeth. "Did ye understand all these things?" They say to Him, "Yes;"

nor will they say, 'Lo, here!' or, 'Lo, there!' for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you."

Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from hence." Pilate, therefore, said to Him, "Art Thou, then, a King?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a King. To this end have I been born, and to this end have I come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears My voice."

Wherefore, we henceforth know no one according to the flesh; even if we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now no longer do we know Him thus. Wherefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, they have become new.

For, though walking in flesh, we are not warring according to the flesh, (for the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but mighty through God for the casting down of strongholds); casting down reasonings, and every high thing lifting itself up against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;



But ye are they who have remained with Me in my temptations;


And straightway the Spirit driveth Him forth into the wilderness. And He was in the wilderness forty days tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts; and the angels were ministering to Him.


Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness, to he tempted by the Devil. And, having fasted forty days and forty nights, He afterwards hungered. And the Tempter, having come near, said to Him, "If Thou art God's Son, speak, that these stones may become loaves of bread." read more.
But He, answering, said, "It has been written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'" Then the Devil takes Him into the holy city, and placed Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and says to Him, "If Thou art a Son of God, cast Thyself down; for it has been written, 'He shall give His angels charge concerning Thee; and on their hands they shall bear Thee up; lest at any time Thou shouldest dash Thy foot against a stone.'" Jesus said to him, "Again it has been written, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'" Again the Devil takes Him into an exceedingly high mountain, and shows Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and he said to Him, "All these things will I give Thee, if, falling down, Thou wilt worship me." Then Jesus saith to him, "Depart, Satan; for it has been written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.'" Then the Devil leaves Him; and, behold, angels came and were ministering to Him.

And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was being led in the Spirit in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by the Devil. And He ate nothing in those days; and, when they were completed, He hungered. And the Devil said to Him, "If Thou art God's Son, command this stone, that it become bread." read more.
And Jesus made answer to him, "It has been written, 'Not on bread alone shall man live.'" And, leading Him up, he showed Him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in a moment of time. And the Devil said to Him, "To Thee will I give all this authority, and the glory of them; because to me it has been delivered, and to whomsoever I will I give it. If Thou, therefore, wilt worship before me, it shall all be Thine." And Jesus, answering, said to him, "It has been written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.'" And he led Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If Thou art God's Son, cast Thyself down hence; for it has been written, 'He will command His angels concerning you, to keep watch over you; and on their hands they shall bear you up, lest haply you dash your foot against a stone.'" And Jesus, answering, said to him, "It has been said, You shall not tempt the Lord your God." And, having completed every temptation, the Devil departed from Him until a fitting season.


And Peter was sitting without, in the court; and a certain maid-servant approached him, saying, "And you were with Jesus the Galilaean!" But he denied before them all, saying, "I know not what you are saying." And another maid saw him, when he walked out into the porch, and says to those there, "This man was 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 by, having come, said to Peter, "Truly you also are one of them; for even your speech makes you manifest." Then began he to curse and swear, "I do not know the Man." And straight-way a cock crowed. And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, saying, "Before a cock crows, you will thrice deny Me." And, going forth without, he wept bitterly.

And those who seized Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. And Peter was following Him afar off to the court of the high priest; and, entering within, he was sitting with the attendants to see the end.

And, as Peter was beneath in the court, there comes one of the maids of the high priest; and, seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him, and says, "You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus." But he denied, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are saying." And he went out into the porch [and the cock crowed]. read more.
And the maid, seeing him, began again to say to those standing by, This is one of them." But he again denied. And, after a little while, those who stood by said to Peter, "Of a truth you are one of them; for you are a Galilaean." But he began to curse, and to swear, "I know not This Man of Whom ye speak." And straightway the second time the cock crowed. And Peter remembered the word, how Jesus said to him, "Before the cock crows twice, you will deny Me thrice." And, having thought thereon, he kept weeping.

And Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said, therefore, to him, "Are you also one of His disciples?" He denied, and said, "I am not." One of the servants of the high priest, being a kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, says, "Did not I see you in the garden with Him?" Again, therefore, Peter denied; and straightway a cock crowed.

And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and there come together with him all the high priests and the elders and the scribes. And Peter followed Him afar off, even within into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the attendants, and he was warming himself at the light of the fire.

And, seizing Him, they led Him away, and brought Him into the house of the high priest. But Peter was following afar off. And, they having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter was sitting in the midst of them. And a certain maid, seeing him sitting by the light, and looking intently at him, said, "This man also was with Him." read more.
But he denied, saying, "I do not know Him, woman." And, after a little while, another, seeing him, said, "You also are one of them." But Peter said, "Man, I am not." And, about one hour having intervened, a certain other was confidently insisting, saying, "Of a truth this one also was with Him; for he also is a Galilaean." But Peter said, "Man, I know not what you are saying." And immediately, while he was yet speaking, a cock crowed. And, turning, the Lord looked upon Peter: and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He said to him, "Before a cock shall crow to-day, you will thrice deny Me." And, going forth without, he wept bitterly.

and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. And it was Caiaphas who counseled the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. And Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. And that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the high priest; read more.
But Peter was standing at the door without. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spake to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. The maiden door-keeper, therefore, says to Peter, Are you also one of this Man's disciples?" He says, "I am not." And the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals (because it was cold), and were warming themselves; and Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.


Jesus said to them, "I am the Bread of Life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who believes on Me shall never thirst. But I said to you, that ye have even seen Me, and do not believe. All that the Father giveth to Me shall come to Me; and him who comes to Me I will in no wise cast out; read more.
because I have come down from Heaven, not to do My Own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me.

And no one has ascended into Heaven, but He Who descended out of Heaven??he Son of Man [Who is in Heaven]. And, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;

But to each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore, He saith, "Having ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men." Now the word, "He ascended," what does it mean, but that He also descended into the lower parts of the earth? read more.
He Who descended is Himself also the One Who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.

He said, therefore, again to them, "I go away, and ye will seek Me, and will die in your sins. Whither I go, ye cannot come." The Jews, therefore, said, "Will He kill Himself?" because He said, "Whither I go, ye cannot come." And He said to them, "Ye are from beneath; I am from above. Ye are of this world; I am not of this world.



Jesus, therefore, said to them, "Verily, verily, 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 that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day; for My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. read more.
He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, abides in Me, and I in him.

Jesus spake these things; and, lifting up His eyes to Heaven, said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee; even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh, that to all Whom Thou hast given Him He should give eternal life. And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send. read more.
I glorified Thee on the earth; having completed the work which Thou hast given Me to do. And, now, Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine Own Self, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was. I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world. Thine they were; and Thou gavest them to Me; and they have kept Thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou gavest Me are from Thee; because the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from Thee, and believed that Thou didst send Me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom Thou hast given Me; because they are Thine. And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world; and these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep, in Thine Own name, those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, even as we are. While I was with them, I was keeping, in Thy name, those Whom Thou hast given Me; and I guarded them, and no one of them perished, except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I come to Thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves. I have given them Thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth. As Thou didst send Me into the world, I also sent them into the world; and in their behalf I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. And I do not pray for these only, but for those also who believe on Me through their word; that they may all be one, even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me. And the glory which Thou hast given to Me I have given to them, that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and lovedst them, even as Thou didst love Me. Father, as to what Thou hast given Me, I desire that they also maybe with Me, where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me; because Thou didst love Me before the founding of a world. O righteous Father! and the world knew Thee not; but I knew Thee, and these knew that Thou didst send Me; and I made known to them Thy name, and will make it known; that the love with which Thou lovedst Me may be in them, and I in them."

Philip says to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices us." Jesus saith to him, "So long a time am I with you, and you do not know Me, Philip! He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how say you, 'Show us the Father?' Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I say to you, I speak not from Myself; but the Father, abiding in Me, doeth His works. read more.
Believe Me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; or, else, believe Me because of the works themselves.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, this will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name, I will do it. "If ye love Me, ye will keep My commandments; and I will ask of the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, that He may be with you forever; the Spirit of truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it beholds Him not, neither knows Him: ye know Him, because He abideth with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world beholds Me no more; but ye behold Me; because I live, ye shall live also. In that day ye will know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you.

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, we have confidence toward God; and whatsoever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments, and do the things that are pleasing before Him. And this is the commandment, that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us commandment. read more.
And he that keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him; and in this we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit Whom He gave to us.

for, indeed, He was crucified through weakness, but He liveth through the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him through the power of God toward you. Try yourselves, whether ye are in the faith; prove yourselves. Or know ye not as to yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless ye be rejected?



But be not ye called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and all ye are brethren. And call no one your father on the earth; for One is your Father, the Heavenly. Neither be ye called leaders; because One is your Leader, the Christ.

if we are this day examined in regard to a good deed done to an impotent man, by what means this person has been made whole; 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, in Him does this man stand here before you well!

And in no one else is there salvation; for neither is there any other name under Heaven, that has been given among men, in Which we must be saved."

concerning, therefore, the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but One. For, even if there are things called gods, whether in heaven, or on earth (as there are gods many, and lords many); yet to us there is One God, the Father, of 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 arose Theudas, alleging that he himself was somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves; who was slain, and all, as many as obeyed him, were disbanded, and came to nothing. After this arose Judas, the Galilean, in the days of the enrollment, and drew away people after him; he also perished; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered abroad.

And Jesus, answering, said to them, "Take heed that no one lead you astray; for many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will lead many astray.

Then, if any one shall say to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ!' or 'Here,' believe it 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 elect. Behold, I have foretold you. read more.
If, therefore, they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness;' go not forth; 'Behold, He is in the secret chambers,' believe it not,

And Jesus began to say to them, "Take heed, lest some one lead you astray. Many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He', and will lead many astray.

And then, if any one shall say to you, 'Lo, here is the Christ!' or, 'Lo, there!' believe him not; for there will arise false Christs and false prophets, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect. But take heed; I have foretold you all things.

And they will say to you, 'Lo, there!' or "Lo, here!' go not away, nor follow after them. For, as the lightning, flashing out of one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall be the Son of Man.

And He said, "Take heed that ye be not led astray; for many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He,' and, 'The season has drawn near!' Go not after them.


And there entered a reasoning among them, as to which of them should be greatest. Now Jesus, knowing the reasoning of their heart, taking a child, placed it by Himself, and said to them, "Whosoever shall receive this child in My name, receives Me; and whosoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me; for he that is least among you all, the same is great."

Jesus, therefore, perceiving that they were about to come and take Him by force, to make Him King, withdrew again into the mountain, Himself alone.

Then came to Him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, worshiping and asking something of Him. And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She says to Him, "Command, that these my two sons may sit, one on Thy right hand, and one on Thy left, in Thy Kingdom." But Jesus, answering, said, "Ye know not what ye are asking. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?" They say to Him, "We are able." read more.
He saith to them, "My cup, indeed, ye shall drink; but to sit on My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father."

At that time the disciples came near to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?" And, having called a little child to Him, He placed it in the midst of them, and said, "Verily I say to you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

They, therefore, having come together, were asking Him, saying, "Lord, dost Thou at this time restore the Kingdom to Israel?" He said to them, "It is not yours to know times or seasons, which the Father placed in His own authority;

And those going before, and those following, were crying, "Hosanna! Blessed is He That cometh in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming Kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the Highest!"


Beware, lest there should be any one who makes a spoil of you through his philosophy and vain deceits, according to the tradition of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to Christ; because in Him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily; and ye have been made complete in Him, Who is the Head of all principality and power; read more.
in Whom ye were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hand, in the putting off of the body of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in your immersion, in which ye were also raised with Him through faith in the working of God, Who raised Him from the dead; and you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, did He make alive with Him: having freely forgiven us all our trespasses; having blotted out the hand-writing in decrees against us, which was contrary to us, and He has taken it out of the midst, nailing it to the cross; having despoiled the principalities and the powers, He made an example of them, celebrating a triumph over them in it.

Therefore, I suffer all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.


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


"And to the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write these things," saith the Amen, the Faithful and the True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:




and to plainly show what is the dispensation of the mystery which from the ages has been hidden away in God, Who made all things;


and, "Thou, Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Thy hands.

because in Him were all things created, in the heavens, and upon the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers??ll things have been created through Him, and for Him; and He is before all things, and in Him all things have held together.


And Pilate, calling together the high priests and the rulers and the people, said to them, "Ye brought to me This Man as One perverting the people and, behold, I, having examined Him before you, found no fault in This Man regarding those things of which ye accuse Him; no, nor yet Herod; for he sent Him hack to us; and, behold, nothing worthy of death has been done by Him. read more.
Chastising Him, therefore, I will release Him" OMITTED TEXT. But they cried out again with all the multitude, saying, "Away with Him! and release to us Barabbas!"??19 one who, indeed, because of a certain insurrection made in the city, and of murder, was cast into prison. And again Pilate called to them, wishing to release Jesus. But they kept calling out, saying, "Crucify, crucify Him!" But he said to them the third time, "Why, what evil did This Man do? I found in Him nothing worthy of death. Chastising Him, therefore, I will release Him." But they were urgent, with loud voices, asking that He might be crucified. And their voices prevailed. And Pilate gave judgment that their request should be executed; and he released him who, because of insurrection and murder, had been cast into prison, for whom they were asking; but he delivered up Jesus to their will.

And at the feast the governor was accustomed to release to the multitude one prisoner, whom they desired; and they then had a noted prisoner called Barabbas. When, therefore, they were gathered together, Pilate said to them, "Whom do ye desire that I should release to you? Barabbas or Jesus Who is called Christ?" read more.
For he knew that because of envy they delivered Him up. And, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, "Have nothing to do with that Righteous One; for I suffered many things today in a dream because of Him." But the high priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes, that they should ask for Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. And the governor, answering, said to them, "Which of the two do ye desire that I should 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, "Let Him be crucified." But he said, "Why, what evil did He perform?" And they were crying out the more, saying, "Let Him be crucified!" And Pilate, seeing that it availed nothing, but rather a tumult was being made, taking water, washed his hands before the multitude, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this Man. Ye shall see to it." And all the people, answering, said, "His blood be upon us, and upon our children." Then he released to them Barabbas; but, having scourged Jesus, he delivered Him up to be crucified.

Now at the feast he was wont to release to them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. And there was one called Barabbas, bound with the insurgents, who, in the insurrection, had committed murder. And, coming up, the multitude began to ask him to do as he was wont to do to them. read more.
And Pilate answered them, saying, "Do you wish me to release to you the King of the Jews?" (For he was coming to understand that because of envy the high priests had delivered Him up). But the high priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release to them Barabbas. And Pilate, again answering, said to them, "What, then, shall I do to Him Whom ye call the King of the Jews?" And they cried out again, "Crucify Him!" And Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil did He do?" But they cried out vehemently, "Crucify Him!" And Pilate, wishing to satisfy the multitude, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus, after having scourged Him, to be crucified.

But ye have a custom, that I should release to you one at the passover. Do ye wish, therefore, that I release to you the King of the Jews?" They cried out, therefore, again, saying, "Not this Man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.

Then Pilate, therefore, took Jesus, and scourged Him. And the soldiers, having platted a crown of thorns, placed it upon his head, and put on Him a purple robe; and they kept coming to Him, and saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" And they were giving Him blows with a rod. read more.
And Pilate went out again, and says to them, "Behold, I bring Him out to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in Him." Jesus, therefore, came forth without, wearing the thorn-crown, and the purple robe. And he says to them, "Behold, the Man!" When, therefore, the high priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out, "Crucify! crucify!" Pilate says to them, "Take ye Him, and crucify Him; for I find not a crime in Him." The Jews, therefore, answered him, "We have a law, and according to the law He ought to die, because He made Himself God's Son." When, therefore, Pilate heard this saying, he was the more afraid; and he entered again into the Praetorium, and says to Jesus, "Whence art Thou?" But Jesus gave him no answer. Pilate, therefore, says to Him, "Dost Thou not speak to me? Knowest Thou not that I have authority to release Thee, and have authority to crucify Thee?" Jesus answered him, "You would have no authority against Me, unless it were given to you from above; on this account, he who delivered Me up to you has greater sin." In consequence of this, Pilate was seeking to release Him; but the Jews cried out, saying, "If you release this Man, you are not Caesar's friend; every one who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar." Pilate, therefore, having heard these words, led Jesus without, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called the "Pavement," but, in Hebrew, "Gabbatha." And it was the Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he says to the Jews, "Behold, your King!" They, therefore, cried out, "Away with Him! away with Him! Crucify Him!" Pilate says to them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The high priests answered, We have no king but Caesar!" Then, therefore, he delivered Him up to them to be crucified.


And, behold, they were bringing to Him a paralytic laid upon a couch. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the paralytic, "Child, be of good courage; your sins are forgiven."



"But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority on the earth to forgive sins" (then saith He to the paralytic), "Arise, and take up your bed, and go to your house."

But, that ye may know the Son of Man hath authority on earth to forgive sins (He saith to the paralytic).

But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath authority on the earth to forgive sins (He said to the paralyzed man), I say to you, arise; and, taking up your couch, go to your house."


And, beholding their faith, He said, "Man, your sins are forgiven you."

Wherefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; because she loved much; but he, to whom little is forgiven, loves little." And He said to her, "Your sins have been forgiven." And those reclining with Him began to say in themselves, "Who is This That even forgiveth sins!" read more.
And He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."


And, as Peter was beneath in the court, there comes one of the maids of the high priest; and, seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him, and says, "You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus." But he denied, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are saying." And he went out into the porch [and the cock crowed]. read more.
And the maid, seeing him, began again to say to those standing by, This is one of them." But he again denied. And, after a little while, those who stood by said to Peter, "Of a truth you are one of them; for you are a Galilaean." But he began to curse, and to swear, "I know not This Man of Whom ye speak." And straightway the second time the cock crowed. And Peter remembered the word, how Jesus said to him, "Before the cock crows twice, you will deny Me thrice." And, having thought thereon, he kept weeping.

And, while He is yet speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a large multitude, with swords and clubs, from the high priests and elders of the people. And he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, "Whomsoever I kiss, He it is; seize Him." And immediately coming to Jesus, he said, "Hail, Rabbi!" and kissed Him. read more.
But Jesus said to him, "Comrade, do that for which you are present!" Then, coming near, they laid hands on Jesus, and took Him. And, behold, one of those with Jesus stretching forth his hand, grasped his sword; and, smiting the servant of the high priest, he struck off his ear. Then saith Jesus to him, "Return your sword to its place; for all taking a sword will perish by a sword. Or do you think that I cannot call upon My Father, and He will place beside Me, even now, more than twelve legions of angels? How, then, could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?" In that hour Jesus saith to the multitudes, "Did ye come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs, to arrest Me? Daily with you, in the temple, I was wont to sit, teaching, and ye seized me not. But all this has come to pass, that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples, forsaking Him, fled.

And straightway, while He yet spake, comes Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and clubs, from the high priests and the scribes and the elders. Now he that was betraying Him gave them a signal, saying, "Whomsoever I shall kiss, This is He, take Him, and lead Him away securely." And, having come, going straightway to Him, he says, "Rabbi;" and kissed Him. read more.
And they laid hands on Him, and took Him. And one of those standing by, having drawn his sword, smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear. And Jesus answering, said to them, "Did ye come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs, to seize Me? I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye did not take Me; but this is done that the Scriptures may be fulfilled." And, having left Him, they all fled. And a certain young man was following with Him, having a linen cloth thrown around his naked body; and they lay hold on him; but, leaving the linen cloth, he fled naked. And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and there come together with him all the high priests and the elders and the scribes. And Peter followed Him afar off, even within into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the attendants, and he was warming himself at the light of the fire.

While He was yet speaking, behold, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the twelve, was coming before them; and he drew near to Jesus to kiss Him. And Jesus said to him, "Judas, do ye betray the Son of Man with a kiss?" And those about Him, seeing what was about to follow, said, "Lord, shall we smite with the sword?" read more.
And a certain one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his right ear. But Jesus, answering, said, "Suffer ye thus far." And, touching the ear, He healed him. And Jesus said to the high priests and captains of the temple and elders, who came up against Him, "Did ye come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched not forth your hands against Me; but this is your hour, and the power of darkness."

And Judas also, who betrayed Him, knew the place; because Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with His disciples. Judas, therefore, having received the band of soldiers and officers from the high priests and the Pharisees, comes thither with lanterns, and torches, and weapons. Jesus, therefore, knowing all things that were coming upon Him, went forth, and saith to them, "Whom seek ye?" read more.
They answered Him, "Jesus, the Nazarene." Jesus saith to them, "I am He." And Judas also, who betrayed Him, was standing with them. When, therefore, He said to them, "I am He," they went backward, and fell to the ground. Again, therefore, He asked them, "Whom seek ye?" And they said, "Jesus, the Nazarene." Jesus answered, "I told you that I am He; if, therefore, ye are seeking Me, permit these to go their way;" that the word might be fulfilled, which He spake, "Of those whom Thou hast given Me, I lost none." Simon Peter, therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchus. Jesus, therefore, said to Peter, "Put up the sword into the sheathe. The cup which the Father hath given Me, shall I not drink it?" So the band, and the chief captain, and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus, and bound Him,




And Paul said, "John immersed with an immersion of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him coming after him; that is, on Jesus."





Salute ye one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ.


It is the Spirit That giveth life; the flesh profits nothing: the words which I have spoken to you are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were that believed not, and who it was that would betray Him.

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that bears not fruit, He taketh it away: and every one that bears fruit, He cleanseth it, that it may bear more fruit. Already ye are clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye are seeking to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; and ye, therefore, do the things which ye heard from your father. They answered and said to Him, "Our father is Abraham." Jesus saith to them, "If ye are children of Abraham, ye are doing the works of Abraham. read more.
But now ye are seeking to kill Me, a Man Who hath told you the truth, which I heard from My Father: this Abraham did not. Ye do the works of your father." They say to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father??od." 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 of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do ye not understand My speech? it is because ye cannot hear My word. Ye are of your father the Devil; and the desires of your father ye wish to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own; because he is a liar, and the father of it. And, because I speak the truth, ye believe Me not. Who of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do ye not believe Me? He that is of God hears the words of God; on this account, ye hear them not, because ye are not of God."

And Jesus cried, and said, "He who believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on Him Who sent Me; and he that beholds Me, beholds Him Who sent Me. I have come a light into the world, that every one who believes on Me may not abide in the darkness. read more.
And, if any one hears My words, and keeps them not, I do not judge him; for I came, not to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Jesus saith to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Me. If ye knew Me, ye would know My Father also; from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him." Philip says to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices us." read more.
Jesus saith to him, "So long a time am I with you, and you do not know Me, Philip! He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how say you, 'Show us the Father?' Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I say to you, I speak not from Myself; but the Father, abiding in Me, doeth His works. Believe Me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; or, else, believe Me because of the works themselves.


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

and, last of all, as to one born out of time, He appeared to me also.

And he said, 'The God of our fathers appointed you to know His will, and to see the Righteous One, and to hear a voice out of His mouth;

But arise, and stand upon your feet; for I appeared to you for this end, to appoint you a minister and a witness both of the things in which you saw Me, and of the things in which I will appear to you;

And, on the following night, the Lord, standing by him, said, "Be of good courage; for, as you fully testified as to the things concerning Me at Jerusalem, so you must testify at Rome also."

And, as he was journeying, it came to pass, that he was drawing nigh to Damascus; and suddenly there flashed around him a light from Heaven; and, having fallen upon the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" And he said, "Who art Thou, Lord?" And He said, "I am Jesus Whom you are persecuting. read more.
But arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told you what you must do." And the men who were journeying with him were standing speechless; hearing, indeed, the voice, but beholding no one. And Saul arose from the earth; and, his eyes being opened, he beheld nothing; but, taking him by the hand, they led him into Damascus. And he was three days without seeing; and he neither ate, nor drank. And there was a certain disciple in Damascus, Ananias by name; and the Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias?" And he said, "Behold, I am here, Lord!" And the Lord said to him, "Arise, go to the street that is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one named Saul of Tarsus; for, behold, he is praying; and in a vision he saw a man, Ananias by name, coming in, and laying his hands on him, that he might receive sight." And Ananias answered, "Lord, I heard from many concerning this man, how many evils he did to Thy saints in Jerusalem; and here he has authority from the high priests to bind all those calling on Thy name." But the Lord said to him, "Go your way; because this man is to Me a chosen vessel to bear My name before nations, and kings, and the sons of Israel; for I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name's sake. And Ananias went away, and entered into the house; and, laying his hands on him, said, "Brother Saul, the Lord hath sent me??ven Jesus, Who appeared to you in the way in which you were coming, sent me, that you may receive sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit."


and saw Him, saying to me, 'Make haste, and go forth quickly out of Jerusalem; because they will not receive your testimony concerning Me.'



In that day ye shall ask in My name: and I say not to you, that I will ask the Father for you;




And in that day ye will ask nothing of Me: verily, verily, I say to you, if ye shall ask anything of the Father, He will give it you in My name. Hitherto ye asked nothing in My name; ask, and ye will receive, that your joy may be made full.


Having spoken these things, Jesus went forth with His disciples beyond the winter-brook Kidron, where was a garden, into which He entered Himself and His disciples.

And, having sung praises, they went out into the mount of Olives.

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

Then cometh Jesus with them into a place called Gethsemane, and saith to the disciples, "Sit ye here, while I, going yonder, pray." And, taking with Him Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to be grieved and to be in distress. Then saith He to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful even unto death! Abide ye here, and watch with Me." read more.
And, going forward a little, He fell on His face, praying, and saying, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt." And He cometh to the disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and saith to Peter, "Were ye thus unable to watch with Me one hour? Watch, and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit, indeed, is willing, but the flesh is weak." Again, a second time, going away, He prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is not possible that this cup should pass away except I drink it, Thy will be done," And, coming again, He found them sleeping; for their eyes were heavy. And, leaving them, going away again, He prayed a third time, saying again the same words. Then He cometh to the disciples, and saith to them, "Sleep on the remaining time, and take your rest. Behold the hour has drawn near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going. Behold, he who is betraying Me is at hand."

And they come to a place the name of which is Gethsemane. And He saith to His disciples, "Sit ye here, while I pray." And He taketh with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly amazed, and to be in distress. And He saith to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, unto death! Abide here, and watch." read more.
And going forward a little, He fell on the ground, and was praying, that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from Him. And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible to Thee; take away this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what Thou wilt." And He cometh and findeth them sleeping, and saith to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? were you not able to watch one hour? Watch, and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit, indeed, is willing, but the flesh is weak." And, going away again, He prayed, saying the same thing. And, returning, He found them again sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they knew not what to answer Him. And He cometh the third time, and saith to them, "Sleep on the remaining time, and take your rest. It is enough; the hour came; behold, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going. Behold, he that is betraying Me has come near."

And, going out, He went, according to His custom, to the mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him; and, having come to the place, He said to them, "Pray, that ye enter not into temptation." And He was parted from them about a stone's throw; and, kneeling down, He prayed, read more.
saying, "Father, if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; nevertheless, not My will, but Thine, be done." And there appeared to Him an angel from Heaven, strengthening Him. And, being in an agony, He was praying more earnestly. And His sweat became, as it were, large drops of blood falling down upon the ground! And, arising from prayer, and coming to the disciples, He found them sleeping for grief, and said to them, "Why are ye sleeping? Rising up, pray, that ye enter not into temptation."



but ye denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked that a man?? murderer??e granted to you;


And he said, 'The God of our fathers appointed you to know His will, and to see the Righteous One, and to hear a voice out of His mouth;

And, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, "Have nothing to do with that Righteous One; for I suffered many things today in a dream because of Him."



While He is yet speaking, there comes one from the ruler of the synagogue, saying, "Your daughter has died; trouble not the Teacher." But Jesus, hearing it, answered him, "Fear not; only believe; and she shall be made whole!" And, coming into the house, He permitted no one to enter with Him, except Peter, and James, and John, and the father of the maiden, and her mother. read more.
And they were all weeping, and bewailing her; but He said, "Weep not; for she did not die, but is sleeping." And they were deriding Him, knowing that she died. But He, taking her by the hand, called, saying, "Maiden, arise." And her spirit returned to her, and she rose up instantly; and He commanded that something should be given to her to eat. And her parents were astonished. But He charged them to tell no one what had taken place.

And Jesus, having come into the house of the ruler, and seeing the flute-players and the multitude making a tumult, said, "Withdraw; for the damsel did not die, but is sleeping." And they were laughing at Him. But, when the multitude was put forth, having gone in, He took hold of her hand, and the damsel arose. read more.
And the report of this went forth into all that land.

While He is speaking these things to them, behold, a ruler, having come to Him, was worshiping Him, saying, "My daughter just now died; but, coming, lay Thy hand upon her, and she shall live." And Jesus, having risen, was following him, also His disciples.

And there comes one of the synagogue-rulers, Jairus by name; and, seeing Him, he falls at His feet, and beseeches Him much, saying, "My little daughter is extremely ill; I pray that, coming, Thou wilt lay Thy hands upon her, that she may be healed and live." And He went away with him; and a great multitude was following Him, and they were thronging Him.

While He was yet speaking, they come from the synagogue-ruler's house, saying, "Your daughter died; why do you trouble the Teacher any further?" But Jesus, disregarding the word spoken, saith to the synagogue-ruler, "Fear not, only believe." And He permitted no one to follow with Him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. read more.
And they come to the house of the synagogue-ruler; and He beholds a tumult, and people weeping and wailing greatly. And, having entered, He saith to them, "Why do ye make a tumult, and weep? the child did not die, but she is sleeping." And they were deriding Him. But He, having put them all out, taketh with Him the father of the child, and the mother, and those with Him, and goeth in where the child was. And, having taken hold of the child's hand, He saith to her, "Talitha cumi;" which is, being interpreted, "Damsel, (I say to you), arise." And straight-way the damsel arose, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And straightway they were amazed with great amazement. And He charged them much that no one should know this; and He commanded that something should be given her to eat.

And, behold, there came a man whose name was Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue; and, falling down near Jesus' feet, he was beseeching Him to come into his house; because he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying! But, as He was going away, the multitudes were thronging.


and "a stone of stumbling, and rock of offense"; who stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which also they were appointed.










And, evening having come, there came a rich man from Arimathaea, whose name was Joseph, who also himself was a disciple of Jesus. This man, going to Pilate, asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given up. And, taking the body, Joseph wrapped it in clean linen, read more.
and laid it in his own new tomb, which he hewed out in the rock; and, having rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, he went away. And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre. And on the morrow which, indeed, is the day after the Preparation, the high priests and the Pharisees were gathered together to Pilate, saying, Sir, we were reminded that that Deceiver said, while yet living, 'After three days I rise again;' order, therefore, that the sepulchre be made secure until the third day, lest haply His disciples, coming, should steal Him away, and say to the people, 'He was raised from the dead;' and the last error will be worse than the first." And Pilate said to them, "Ye have a guard; go your way, secure it, as ye know how." And, going, they made the sepulchre secure, sealing the stone, in connection with the guard.

And, evening having already come, since it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, there came Joseph of Arimathaea, an honorable councillor; who also himself was looking for the Kingdom of God; and boldly went in to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. And Pilate wondered, if He had already died; and, calling to him the centurion, he asked him, whether He were already dead. read more.
And, having learned it from the centurion, he granted the Corpse to Joseph. And he, having brought linen cloth, and having taken Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of a rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Joses, beheld where He was laid.

And, behold, a man, Joseph by name, who was a councillor, a good and righteous man (the same had not consented to their plan and deed), from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the Kingdom of God: the same, going to Pilate, asked for the body of Jesus. read more.
And, taking it down, he wrapped it in fine linen, and placed Him in a tomb, hewn in a stone, where no one was yet laid. And it was a day of Preparation, and a sabbath was approaching. And the women who had accompanied Him out of Galilee, following after, beheld the tomb, and how His body was laid. And, returning, they prepared spices and perfumes; and, on the sabbath they rested according to the commandment.

The Jews, therefore, (since it was the Preparation), that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, (for the day of that sabbath was great), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and they be taken away. The soldiers, therefore, came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with Him; but, when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was already dead, they broke not His legs; read more.
but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and straightway there came out blood and water. And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he says what is true, that ye also may believe. For these things came to pass, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "A bone of Him shall not be broken." And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him Whom they pierced." And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly through fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. He came, therefore, and took away His body. And there came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to Him by night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. So they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of Jews is to bury. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been laid. There, therefore, on account of the Preparation of the Jews (because the tomb was near), they laid Jesus.


and, as they were eating, He said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me." And, being exceedingly grieved, they began to say to Him, each one, "Is it I, Lord?" And He, answering, said, "He who dipped with Me his hand in the dish, the same will betray Me. read more.
The Son of Man, indeed, goeth, as it has been written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It were good for him, if that man had never been born!" And Judas, who betrayed Him, answering, said, "Is it I, Rabbi?" He says to him, "You said it."

And as they were reclining at table and eating, Jesus said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me??ne who is eating with Me." They began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him, one by one, "Is it I?" And He said to them, "It is one of the twelve??e that is dipping with Me in the dish. read more.
Because the Son of Man is going as it has been written concerning 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."

But, behold, the hand of him who is betraying Me is with Me on the table; because the Son of Man, indeed, is going according as it has been determined; but woe to that man through whom He is betrayed!" And they began to inquire together among themselves, which of them it was, who was about to perpetrate this thing.

Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, "Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me." The disciples were looking one on another, doubting about whom He was speaking. There was at the table reclining in Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. read more.
Simon Peter, therefore, beckons to this one, and says to him, "Tell us who it is about whom He is speaking." He, leaning back as he was on the breast of Jesus, says to Him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus, therefore, answereth, "He it is for whom I shall dip the morsel, and give it to him." Having, therefore, dipped the morsel, He taketh and giveth it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him. Jesus, therefore, saith to him, "What you do, do quickly." And no one of those reclining knew for what purpose He spake this to him; for some thought, because Judas had the money-bag, that Jesus said to him, "Buy what we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor. He, therefore, having received the morsel, went out straightway; and it was night.


and, when they mocked Him, they took off the robe from Him, and put on His own garments, and led Him away to crucify Him. And, coming out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they impressed to bear the cross. And, having come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say "Place of a skull," read more.
they gave Him to drink wine mingled with gall; and, having tasted it, He would not drink.

And, when they mocked Him, they took from Him the purple, and put on Him His own garments. And they lead Him out to crucify Him. And they impress one Simon, a Cyrenian, who was passing by, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear His cross. And they bring Him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, "The place of a skull." read more.
And they were offering Him wine mingled with myrrh: but He did not take it.

And, when they led Him away, laying hold of one Simon a Cyrenian, coming from the country, they laid on him the cross, to bear it after Jesus. And there was following Him a great multitude of people, and of women, who bewailed and lamented Him But, turning towards them, Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for Me; but weep for yourselves, and for your children; read more.
for, behold, the days are coming in which they will say, 'Happy the barren, and the wombs which bore not, and breasts that gave not suck.' Then will they begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us;' and to the hills, 'Cover us;' for, if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?" And there were being led two others also, malefactors, with Him to be put to death.

Then, therefore, he delivered Him up to them to be crucified. They took Jesus, therefore; and, bearing the cross for Himself, He went forth into the place called "Place of a Skull," which, in Hebrew, is called "Golgotha;"


And, when morning came, all the high priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus, so as to put Him to death; and, binding Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him up to Pilate, the governor.

And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, "Art Thou the King of the Jews?" And Jesus said to him, "You say it." And, while He was being accused by the high priests and elders, He answered nothing. Then says Pilate to Him, "Hearest Thou not how many things they testify against Thee?" read more.
And He did not answer him, not even to one word; so that the governor greatly wondered.

And straightway in the morning the high priests with the elders, and the scribes, and the whole Sanhedrin, having held a consultation, binding Jesus, carried Him away, and delivered Him up to Pilate. And Pilate asked Him, "Art Then the King of the Jews?" And He, answering, saith to him, "You say it." And the high priests accused Him of many things. read more.
And Pilate again asked Him, saying, "Answerest Thou nothing? Behold how many things they accuse Thee of!" But Jesus no longer made any answer; so that Pilate marvelled.

And the whole multitude of them, rising up, led Him before Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found This Man perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is Christ a King!" And Pilate asked Him, saying, "Art Thou the King of the Jews?" And He, answering, said to him, "You say it." read more.
And Pilate said to the high priests and to the multitudes, "I find no fault in This Man." But they were the more urgent, saying, "He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judaea, and beginning from Galilee even to this place."

They led Jesus, therefore, from Caiaphas into the Praetorium; and it was early; and they themselves entered not into the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the passover. Pilate, therefore, went out to them, and says, "What accusation do ye bring against this Man?" They answered and said to him, "If this Man were not an evil-doer, we would not have delivered Him up to you." read more.
Pilate, therefore, said to them, "Take Him yourselves, and judge Him according to your law." The Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to kill anyone:" that the word of Jesus might he fulfilled, which He spake, signifying by what manner of death He was about to die. Pilate, therefore, entered again into the Praetorium, and called Jesus, and said to Him, "Art Thou the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Do you say this of yourself, or did others tell you concerning Me?" Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the high priests delivered Thee up to me: what didst Thou do?" Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from hence." Pilate, therefore, said to Him, "Art Thou, then, a King?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a King. To this end have I been born, and to this end have I come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears My voice." Pilate says to Him, "What is truth?" And, having said this, he went out again to the Jews, and says to them, "I find no crime in Him.


And the high priests and the whole Sanhedrin were seeking false witness against Jesus, that they might put Him to death; and they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. But afterward two false witnesses, coming forward, said, "This Man, said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.'" read more.
And the high priest, standing up, said to Him, "Answerest Thou nothing? What are these testifying against Thee?" But Jesus was silent. And the high priest said to Him, "I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell us whether Thou art the Christ, the Son of God" Jesus saith to him, "You said it: nevertheless I say to you, henceforth ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming on the clouds of heaven." Then the high priest rent his garments, saying, "He blasphemed! What further need have we of witnesses? Behold, ye just now heard the blasphemy! What think ye?" And they, answering, said, "He is worthy of death." Then did they spit in His face, and buffet Him. And others smote Him, saying, "Prophesy to us, O Christ, who is he that struck Thee?"

And the high priests and all the Sanhedrin were seeking for testimony against Jesus, in order to put Him to death; and they were not finding it. For many were bearing false testimony against Him, and their testimonies were not agreed. And certain ones, standing up, were bearing false testimony against Him, saying, read more.
"We heard Him say, 'I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.'" And not even so did their testimony agree. And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, "Dost Thou answer nothing? What do these testify against Thee?" But He was silent, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, and says to Him, "Art Thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?" And Jesus said, "I am; and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven." And the high priest, rending his clothes, says, "What further need have we of witnesses? Ye heard the blasphemy: what think ye?" And they all condemned Him to be worthy of death. And some began to spit on Him, and to cover His face, and to buffet Him, and to say to Him, "Prophesy;" and the officers received Him with blows of their hands.

And the men who were holding Jesus were mocking Him, beating Him; and, blindfolding Him, they were questioning Him, saying, "Prophesy who he is that smote Thee." And many other things they said against Him, reviling Him. read more.
And, when it was day, the eldership of the people was gathered together, both high priests and scribes; and they led Him away into their Sanhedrin, saying, "If Thou art the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, ye will not believe. And, if I question you, ye will not answer. But henceforth the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God." And they all said, "Art Thou, therefore, the Son of God?" And He said to them, "Ye say that I am." And they said, "Why do we still have need of testimony? for we ourselves heard from His own mouth!"

The high priest, therefore, asked Jesus concerning His disciples, and concerning His teaching. Jesus answered, "I have spoken openly to the world; I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jews assemble together; and in secret I spake nothing. Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard, what I spake to them; behold, they know the things which I said."


And, having crucified Him, they divided His garments among them, casting lots; and, sitting down, they watched Him there. And they put over His head His accusation, "THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS." read more.
Then are there crucified with Him two robbers, one on the right hand and one on the left. And those passing by were reviling Him, wagging their heads, and saying, "Thou Who destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, save Thyself: if Thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross." Likewise also the high priests, mocking, with the scribes and elders, were saying, "Others He saved, Himself He cannot save! King of Israel is He! let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe on Him! He has trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He desireth Him; because He said, 'I am God's Son.'" And the robbers, who were crucified with Him, were reproaching Him with the same thing. And from the sixth hour there came darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And, about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" that is, "My God! My God! Why didst Thou forsake Me?" And some of those standing there, hearing it, said, "This One is calling for Elijah. And straightway one of them, running and taking a sponge, and filling it with vinegar, and putting it on a reed, was giving Him to drink. But the rest said, "Let alone! Let us see whether Elijah is coming to save Him!" And Jesus, crying again with a loud voice, yielded up His spirit. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two, from top to bottom; and the earth was shaken; and the rocks were rent; and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and, coming forth out of the tombs after His resurrection, they entered into the holy city, and appeared to many. And the centurion, and those with him watching Jesus, seeing the earthquake, and the things that were taking places were exceedingly frightened, saying, Truly, This was a Son of God!" And many women were there, beholding from afar, who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him; among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

And they crucify Him, and divide His garments, casting lots upon them, what each should take. And it was the third hour, and they crucified Him. And the inscription of His accusation was written above Him, "THE KING OF THE JEWS." read more.
And with Him they crucify two robbers; one on His right hand, and one on His left. OMITTED TEXT. And those passing by railed on Him, wagging their beads, and saying, "Aha! Thou Who destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days! save Thyself, coming down from the cross!" In like manner the high priests, mocking Him among themselves with the scribes, said, "He saved others; Himself He cannot save! Let the Christ, the King of Israel now come down from the cross, that we may see, and believe!" And those who were crucified with Him were reproaching Him. And, the sixth hour having come, there was darkness upon the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with aloud voice, "ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI!" which is, being interpreted, "My God! My God! why didst Thou forsake Me!" And some of those standing by, hearing it, said, "Behold, He is calling Elijah!" And one, running and filling a sponge full of vinegar, putting it on a reed, gave it to Him to drink, saying, "Let alone; let us see whether Elijah is comming to take Him down." And Jesus, uttering a loud cry, expired. And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. And the centurion, who stood by over against Him, seeing that He so expired, said, "Truly this Man was a Son of God!" And there were also women, beholding from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Less and Joses, and Salome; who, when He was in Galilee, were following Him, and ministering to Him; and many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.

And, when they came to the place that is called "The Skull," there they crucified Him, and the malefactors; one on the right hand, and the other on the left. And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do!" And, dividing His garments among them, they cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also were scoffing at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself! if This is the Christ of God, the Chosen!" read more.
And the soldiers also were mocking Him, coming near, and offering Him vinegar, and saying, "If Thou art the King of the Jews, save Thyself!" And there was also an inscription over Him, "THE KING OF THE JEWS, THIS!" And one of the suspended malefactors kept reviling Him, saying, "Art not Thou the Christ? Save Thyself and us!" But the other, answering and rebuking him, said, "Do you not fear God, seeing that you are in the same condemnation? and we, indeed, righteously; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds: but This Man did nothing amiss." And he said, "Jesus, remember me, when Thou comest in Thy Kingdom." And He said to him, "Verily I say to you, "To-day you shall be with Me in Paradise." And it was already about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land till the ninth hour, the sun's light failing. And the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And, crying with a loud voice, Jesus said, "Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit." And, having said this, He expired. And the centurion, beholding what took place, glorified God, saying, "Truly This was a righteous Man!" And all the multitudes, coming together to this sight, viewing the things that took place, were returning, smiting their breasts. And all those acquainted with Him stood afar off, and the women who followed with Him from Galilee, seeing these things.

where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on each side, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, "JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS." This title, therefore, many of the Jews read; because the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, in Greek. read more.
The high priests of the Jews, therefore, said to Pilate, "Write not, 'The King of the Jews,' but that He 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 coat. And the coat was without a seam, woven from the top throughout. They said, therefore, one to another, "Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be; that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which says, 'They divided My garments among themselves, and upon My vesture did they cast lots.'" The soldiers, therefore, did these things. But there were standing by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. Jesus, therefore, seeing His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, saith to His mother, "Woman, behold your Son!" Then saith He to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. After these things Jesus, knowing that all things have now been finished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, saith, "I thirst." There was set there a vessel full of vinegar; so, putting a sponge full of vinegar on hyssop, they bore it to His mouth. When, therefore, Jesus received the vinegar, He said, "It has been finished;" and, bowing His head, He delivered up His spirit.


And, when they draw nigh to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, He sendeth two of His disciples, and saith to them, "Go into the village that is over against you; and straightway, as ye enter into it, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man ever yet sat: loose him, and bring him. And, if any one say to you, 'Why do ye this?' say ye, 'The Lord hath need of him;' and straight-way he will send him back hither." read more.
And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door without on the street; and they loose him. And some of those standing there said to them, "What do ye, loosing the colt?" And they said to them even as Jesus said; and they let them go. And they bring the colt to Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and He sat on him. And many spread their garments in the way; and others spread branches, having cut them from the fields. And those going before, and those following, were crying, "Hosanna! Blessed is He That cometh in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming Kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the Highest!" And He entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and, having looked around on all things, the hour being late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.

And, when they drew near to Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, to the mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples. saying to them, "Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye will find an ass tied, and a colt with her; having loosed them, lead them to Me. And, if any one say anything to you, ye shall say, 'The Lord hath need of them;' and straight-way he will send them." read more.
Now this has come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, "Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, meek and mounted upon an ass, and on a colt, a foal of a beast of burden.'" And the disciples, going and doing as Jesus commanded them, led the ass and the colt, and put upon them their garments; and He sat thereon. And most of the multitude spread their own garments in the way, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the way. And the multitudes, who were going before Him, and those who were following, were crying, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He Who cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" And, when He entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying, "Who is this?" And the multitudes said, "This is the Prophet, Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee."

And it came to pass that, as He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, saying, "Go your way into the village over against you, in which as ye are entering, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man ever sat; and, having loosed him, bring him. And, if any one ask you, 'Why do ye loose him?' thus shall ye say, 'Because the Lord hath need of him.'" read more.
And those sent, having gone away, found even as He said to them. And, as they were loosing the colt, his owners said to them, "Why loose ye the colt?" And they said, The Lord hath need of him." And they led him to Jesus; and, having thrown their garments upon the colt, they sat Jesus thereon. And, as He was going forward, they were spreading their garments in the way. And, as He was already drawing nigh to the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples, rejoicing, began to praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works which they saw; saying, "Blessed is the King Who is coming in the name of the 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, answering, He said, "I tell you that, if these shall be silent, the stones will cry out!" And, when He came near, seeing the city, He wept over it, saying, "If you knew, in this your day??ven you??he things pertaining to peace! but just now were they hid from your eyes! Because the days will come upon you, when your enemies will cast a rampart about you, and compass you round, and hem you in on all sides; and they will dash you to the ground, and your children within you; and shall not leave in you a stone upon a stone; because you knew not the season of your visitation."

On the morrow a great multitude that had come to the feast, having heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried, "Hosanna! blessed is He Who is coming in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!" And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat upon it; as it has been written, read more.
"Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming upon an ass colt." These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about Him, and that they did these things to Him. The multitude, therefore, that was with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, was bearing testimony. On this account also, the multitude met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. The Pharisees, therefore, said among themselves, "Ye see that ye are effecting nothing! Behold, the world went away after Him!"


And, evening coming on, the disciples came to Him, saying, "The place is desert, and the time already passed by: dismiss the multitudes, that, having gone into the villages, they may buy food for themselves." But Jesus said to them, "They have no need to go away. Give ye them to eat." And they say to Him, "We have nothing here except five loaves and two fishes." read more.
And He said, "Bring them here to Me." And, having commanded the multitudes to recline on the grass??aking the five loaves and two fishes??ooking up into the heaven, He blessed; and, having broken, He gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes. And they all ate, and were satisfied; and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those eating were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

And, the hour being already late, His disciples, coming to Him, said, "The place is desert, and the hour is already late; send them away, that, having gone into the surrounding fields and villages, they may buy themselves something to eat." But He saith to them, "Give ye them to eat." And they said to Him, "Going, shall we buy two hundred denaries worth of loaves, and give them to eat?" read more.
But He saith to them, "How many loaves have ye? go and see." And, having ascertained, they say, "Five, and two fishes." And He commanded that all should recline by companies on the grass. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and fifties. And, taking the five loaves and two fishes, looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and broke up the loaves, and kept giving to the disciples to set before them; and He divided the two fishes among them all. And they all ate, and were satisfied. And they took up broken pieces, twelve basketfuls, and from the fishes. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.

And the day began to decline. And the twelve, coming near, said to Him, "Send away the multitudes; that, going into the villages and country round about, they may lodge and find food; because we are here in a desert place." But He said to them, "Give ye them to eat." And they said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; unless we, going, should buy food for all this people." (For they were about five thousand men). And He said to His disciples, "Make them recline in companies of about fifty each." read more.
And they did so, and made them all recline. And, taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up into Heaven, He blessed them, and broke, and kept giving to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they ate, and were all filled. And there was taken up that which remained to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets.

Jesus, therefore, lifting up His eyes, and seeing that a great multitude is coming to Him, saith to Philip, "Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?" And this He said, proving him; for He Himself knew what He was about to do. Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denaries worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that each one may take a little." read more.
One of His disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, says to Him, "There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves and two small fishes; but what are these among so many?" Jesus said, "Make the men recline." Now there was much grass in the place. The men, therefore, reclined, in number about five thousand. Jesus, therefore, took the loaves; and, having given thanks, He distributed to those reclining; and likewise of the fishes as much as they wished. And, when they were filled, He saith to His disciples, "Gather up the pieces that remain over, that nothing be lost." So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over to those who had eaten. The men, therefore, seeing the sign that He did, said, "This, truly, is the Prophet Who cometh into the world."


And He spake to them many things in parables, saying, "Behold, the sower went forth to sow. And, in his sowing, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the birds, coming, devoured them. And others fell on the rocky places, where they had not much earth; and straightway they sprang up, because they had not depth of earth. read more.
And, the sun having risen, they were scorched; and, because they had no root, they withered away. And others fell upon the thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. And others fell on the good ground, and were yielding fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. He that has ears let him hear."

"The sower went forth to sow his seed. And in his sowing some fell by the wayside; and it was trodden down, and the birds of the heaven devoured it. And another fell upon the rock; and, springing up, it was withered because of not having moisture. And another fell amid the thorns; and the thorns growing with it choked it. read more.
And another fell into the good ground; and, growing, it produced fruit, a hundredfold." Saying these things, He was crying aloud, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."

Hear ye, therefore, the parable of the sower. When any one hears the word of the Kingdom, and understands it not, the evil one comes, and snatches away what has been sown in his heart: this is he that was sown by the wayside. And he that was sown on the rocky places, this is he who hears the word, and straightway with joy receives it; read more.
yet he has not root in himself, but is only temporary; and, when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, straightway he stumbles. And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that hears the word; and the anxiety of the age and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. But he that was sown on the good ground, this is he that hears the word and understands it; who, indeed, bears fruit, and produces, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

And again He began to teach by the seaside. And there is gathered to Him a very great multitude, so that He, having entered into a boat, was sitting in the sea; and all the multitude were by the sea on the land. And He taught them many things in parables, and said to them in His teaching, "Hearken! behold the sower went forth to sow. read more.
And it came to pass, as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured it. And other fell on the rocky ground where it had not much earth; and straightway it sprang up, because of not having depth of earth; and, when the sun rose, it was scorched; and, because it had no root, it was dried up. And other fell among the thorns; and the thorns sprang up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And others fell into the good ground, and were yielding fruit, springing up and growing; and bore, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a hundredfold." And He said, "He that has ears to hear, let him hear."

The sower sows the word. And these are those by the wayside, where the word is sown; and, when they hear, straightway Satan comes, and catches away the word which has been sown in them. And these likewise are those sown upon the rocky places, who, when they hear the word, straightway with joy receive it; read more.
and they have no root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, straightway they stumble. And others are those sown among the thorns. These are those who heard the word, and the anxieties of the age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires about other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. And these are the ones sown on the good ground: such as hear the word, and receive it, and bear fruit, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a hundredfold."

Now this is the parable: The seed is the word of God. And those by the wayside are those who heard; then the Devil comes, and takes away the word from their heart; lest, having believed, they should be saved. "And those on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root; who, for a season, believe, and in time of temptation fall away. read more.
"And that which fell among the thorns, these are those who heard; and, going forth, they are choked with anxieties, and riches, and pleasures of life, and bear no fruit to perfection. "And that in the good ground, these are such as, in a good and honest heart, having heard the word, hold it fast, and bear fruit with patience.


And Jesus, having heard it, withdrew thence, in a boat, into a desert, apart. And the multitudes, hearing of it, followed Him on foot from the cities. And Jesus, coming forth, saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion over them, and healed their sick. And, evening coming on, the disciples came to Him, saying, "The place is desert, and the time already passed by: dismiss the multitudes, that, having gone into the villages, they may buy food for themselves." read more.
But Jesus said to them, "They have no need to go away. Give ye them to eat." And they say to Him, "We have nothing here except five loaves and two fishes." And He said, "Bring them here to Me." And, having commanded the multitudes to recline on the grass??aking the five loaves and two fishes??ooking up into the heaven, He blessed; and, having broken, He gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes. And they all ate, and were satisfied; and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those eating were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

And the apostles gather themselves together to Jesus; and they reported to Him all things, whatsoever they did, and whatsoever they taught. And He saith to them, "Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest yourselves a little." For there were many coming and going, and they were not finding opportunity even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a desert place apart. read more.
And the people saw them going on their way, and many knew them, and they ran together there on foot from all the cities, and outwent them. And, coming forth, He saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. And, the hour being already late, His disciples, coming to Him, said, "The place is desert, and the hour is already late; send them away, that, having gone into the surrounding fields and villages, they may buy themselves something to eat." But He saith to them, "Give ye them to eat." And they said to Him, "Going, shall we buy two hundred denaries worth of loaves, and give them to eat?" But He saith to them, "How many loaves have ye? go and see." And, having ascertained, they say, "Five, and two fishes." And He commanded that all should recline by companies on the grass. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and fifties. And, taking the five loaves and two fishes, looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and broke up the loaves, and kept giving to the disciples to set before them; and He divided the two fishes among them all. And they all ate, and were satisfied. And they took up broken pieces, twelve basketfuls, and from the fishes. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.

And the apostles, having returned, related to Him what they did. And, taking them with Him, He retired privately to a city called Bethsaida. But the multitudes, perceiving it, followed Him; and, having welcomed them, He was speaking to them concerning the Kingdom of God, and those having need of cure He healed. And the day began to decline. And the twelve, coming near, said to Him, "Send away the multitudes; that, going into the villages and country round about, they may lodge and find food; because we are here in a desert place." read more.
But He said to them, "Give ye them to eat." And they said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fishes; unless we, going, should buy food for all this people." (For they were about five thousand men). And He said to His disciples, "Make them recline in companies of about fifty each." And they did so, and made them all recline. And, taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up into Heaven, He blessed them, and broke, and kept giving to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they ate, and were all filled. And there was taken up that which remained to them of broken pieces, twelve baskets.

After these things Jesus went away, beyond the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a great multitude was following Him, because they were beholding the signs which He was doing on the sick. And Jesus went up into the mountain, and was sitting there with His disciples. read more.
Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near. Jesus, therefore, lifting up His eyes, and seeing that a great multitude is coming to Him, saith to Philip, "Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?" And this He said, proving him; for He Himself knew what He was about to do. Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denaries worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that each one may take a little." One of His disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, says to Him, "There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves and two small fishes; but what are these among so many?" Jesus said, "Make the men recline." Now there was much grass in the place. The men, therefore, reclined, in number about five thousand. Jesus, therefore, took the loaves; and, having given thanks, He distributed to those reclining; and likewise of the fishes as much as they wished. And, when they were filled, He saith to His disciples, "Gather up the pieces that remain over, that nothing be lost." So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over to those who had eaten. The men, therefore, seeing the sign that He did, said, "This, truly, is the Prophet Who cometh into the world."


And, behold, there occurred a great commotion; for an angel of the Lord, descending out of Heaven, and coming near, rolled away the stone, and was sitting upon it. And his appearance was as lightning, and his raiment white as snow; and, from fear of him, those keeping watch were shaken, and became as dead. read more.
And the angel, answering, said to the women, "Fear not; for I know that ye are seeking Jesus Who hath been crucified. He is not here; for He arose, as He said. Come! see the place where the Lord was lying; and, going quickly, say to His disciples, 'He arose from the dead;' and, behold, He is going before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him; behold, I told you." And, departing quickly from the sepulchre, with fear and great joy, they ran to announce it to His disciples. And, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" And they, coming to Him, held His feet, and worshiped Him. Then Jesus saith to them, "Fear not, go your way, announce to My brethren that they go away into Galilee, and there shall they see Me." And, as they were going, behold, some of the guard going into the city, reported to the high priests all that had happened. And, having gathered together with the elders, and having taken counsel, they gave a large sum of silver to the soldiers, saying, "Say ye that His disciples, coming by night, stole Him, while we were sleeping. And, if this be heard by the governor, we will persuade him, and make you devoid of care," And they, taking the silver, did as they were instructed. And this account was spread abroad among the Jews, until this day.

And, the sabbath having past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that, coming, they might anoint Him. And, very early on the first day of the sabbaths, they come to the tomb, the sun having risen. And they were saying among themselves, "Who will roll away the stone for us out of the door of the tomb?" read more.
And, looking up, they see that the stone has been rolled back; for it was exceedingly great. And, entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe; and they were amazed. But he says to them; "Be not amazed. Ye are seeking Jesus the Nazarene, the crucified. He arose; He is not here; behold, the place where they laid Him! But go, say to his disciples, and to Peter, that He is going before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him, as He said to you." And, going out, they fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment seized them. And they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid. And, having risen early on the first day of a sabbath, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene from whom He had cast out seven demons. She, going, told it to those who had been with Him, as they were mourning and weeping. And they, having heard that he was alive, and was seen by her, disbelieved.

But, on the first day of the sabbaths, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb; and, entering, they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. read more.
And it came to pass, while they were perplexed about this, behold, also two men stood near them in dazzling apparel. And, as they became afraid, and were bowing their faces to the earth, they said to them, "Why are ye seeking the Living among the dead? He is not here, but was raised. Remember how He spake to you, being yet in Galilee, saying, "The Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again," And they remembered His words; and, returning from the tomb, they reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joana, and Mary the mother of James; and the rest of the women with them were telling these things to the apostles. And these words appeared in their view as idle talk; and they were disbelieving them. But Peter, rising up, ran to the tomb; and, stooping down to look in, he sees the linen bandages alone, and he departed to his home, wondering at what had happened.

Now on the first day of the sabbaths Mary Magdelene comes early in the morning while it was yet dark to the tomb, and sees the stone taken out of the tomb. She runs, therefore, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, "They took away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they laid Him!" Peter, therefore, went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb. read more.
And the two were running together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb; and, having stooped to look within, he beholds the linen cloths lying; yet he went not within. Simon Peter, therefore, also comes, following him, and he went into the tomb; and beholds the linen cloths lying, and the napkin that was on His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. Then went in, therefore, the other disciple also, who came first to the tomb; and he saw, and believed; for as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise from the dead. The disciples, therefore, went away again to their own home. But Mary was standing without by the tomb, weeping. So, as she was weeping, she stooped to look into the tomb; and she beholds two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She says to them, "Because they took away my Lord, and I know not where they laid Him!" Having said these things, she turned back, and beholds Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, says to Him, "Sir, if thou didst bear Him away, tell me where thou didst lay Him, and I will take Him away!" Jesus saith to her, "Mary!" Turning, she says to Him, in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, Teacher). Jesus saith to her, "Touch Me not; for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, "I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God." Mary Magdalene comes, proclaiming to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He spake these things to her.


because the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from Thee, and believed that Thou didst send Me.

I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. But He Who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world."


He who loves Me not, keeps not My words; and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me.


and I made known to them Thy name, and will make it known; that the love with which Thou lovedst Me may be in them, and I in them."

For I spake not from Myself; but the Father, Who sent Me, Himself hath given Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that His commandment is life eternal. What things, therefore, I speak, even as My Father hath told Me, so I speak."




And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee; and a report went out concerning Him through all the region round about.

And, after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of God,

And, after the two days, He went forth thence into Galilee; for Jesus Himself testified, that a prophet has no honor in his own country. When, therefore, He came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received Him, having seen all that He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also went to the feast.


This man came to Jesus by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou hast come, as a Teacher, from God; for no one can do the signs which Thou art doing, unless God be with Him."

God, having in many parts and many ways spoken, of old, to the fathers in the prophets, at the end of these days spake to us in His Son, Whom He appointed Heir of all things, through Whom also He constituted the ages;

I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world. Thine they were; and Thou gavest them to Me; and they have kept Thy word.

And no one has ascended into Heaven, but He Who descended out of Heaven??he Son of Man [Who is in Heaven].



and I made known to them Thy name, and will make it known; that the love with which Thou lovedst Me may be in them, and I in them."



And His disciples followed Him, as He entered into a boat. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves; but He was sleeping. And, coming to Him, they awoke Him, saying, "Lord, save; we are perishing!" read more.
And He saith to them, "Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" Then, having arisen, He rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. And the men wondered, saying, "What manner of Man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!"

And on that day, when evening came, He saith to them, "Let us go across to the other side." And, leaving the multitude, they take Him with them, as He was, in the boat. And other boats were with Him. And there arises a great storm of wind, and the waves were beating into the boat, so that the boat was now being filled. read more.
And He Himself was in the stern, sleeping on the cushion; and they awake Him, and say to Him, "Teacher, is it no concern to Thee that we perish?" And, having been roused up, He rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace! be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And He said to them, "Why are ye fearful? Have ye not yet faith?" And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, "Who, then, is This, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"

Now it came to pass on one of the days, that both He and His disciples entered into a boat; and He said to them, "Let us go over to the other side of the lake." And they set forth. But, as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were being filled full of water, and were in peril. And, coming near, they awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we perish!" And, having arisen, 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, struck with fear, they marvelled, saying one to another, "Who, then, is This, that He commandeth even the winds and the water, and they obey Him!"







Then Jesus saith to them, "All ye will be made to stumble because of Me this night; for it has been written, 'I will smite the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered abroad.'


Then there was brought to Him a demoniac, blind, and dumb; and He healed him, so that the dumb man spake and saw. And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, Can this be the Son of David?" But the Pharisees, hearing it, said, "This Man doth not cast out the demons, except by Beelzebub, prince of the demons." read more.
And, knowing their thoughts, He said to them, "Every kingdom, divided against itself, is brought to naught; and every city or house, divided against itself, shall not stand. And, if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how, then, shall his kingdom stand And, if I by Beelzebub cast out the demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore, they shall be your judges. But, if I by the Spirit of God cast out the demons, then the Kingdom of God came upon you unexpectedly. Or how can one enter into the house of the strong man, and seize upon his goods, unless he first bind the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathers not with Me scatters. Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven. And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven, neither in this age nor in that which is to come. Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree worthless and its fruit worthless; for from the fruit the tree is known. "Broods of vipers! how can ye speak good things, being yourselves evil? For, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. The good man, out of his good treasure, puts forth good things; and the evil man, out of his evil treasure, puts forth evil things. And I say to you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account concerning it in the day of judgment; for by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned."

and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him. And He cometh into a house. And the multitude comes together again, so that they could not even eat bread. And, hearing of it, His kinsmen went out to lay hold on Him; for they said, "He became insane!" read more.
And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He hath Beelzebub, and by the ruler of the demons casteth out the demons." And, having called them to Him, 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 will not be able to stand. And, if Satan did arise against himself, and was divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. But no one is able, after having entered into the house of the strong man, to plunder his goods, except he first bind the strong man; and then will he plunder his house. Verily I say to you, all the sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and the blasphemies whatsoever they blaspheme; but whosoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness forever, but is guilty of an eternal sin; because they said, 'He hath an unclean spirit.'"

And He was casting out a dumb demon. And it came to pass that, when the demon went out, the dumb spake, and the multitudes marvelled. But some of them said, "By Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons, He is casting out the demons."

But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Every kingdom, divided against itself, is made desolate; and a house divided against a house falls. And, if Satan also were divided against himself, how would his kingdom stand? because ye say that by Beelzebub I am casting out the demons! But, if I, by Beelzebub, cast out the demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore, they shall be your judges. read more.
But, if I, by the finger of God, cast out the demons, then the Kingdom of God came upon you unexpectedly. "When the strong man, fully armed, is guarding his own court, his goods are in peace; but, when a stronger than he, coming upon him, overcomes him, he takes away his whole armor upon which he had relied, and distributes his spoils. He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who is not gathering with Me is scattering.


At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Jesus, and said to his servants, "This is John the Immerser; He arose from the dead; and therefore do the powers work in Him."

But, on a birthday celebration of Herod, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatever she should ask. And she, urged on by her mother, says, "Give me here upon a plate the head of John the Immerser." read more.
And the king, though grieved, yet, because of the oaths and of those sitting at the table with them, ordered it to be given; and, having sent, he beheaded John in the prison; and his head was brought upon a plate, and given to the damsel; and she brought it to her mother. And his disciples, coming, took up the corpse, and buried it; and, coming, they told Jesus;

And the king Herod heard of Him, (for His name became famous), and he said, "John the Immerser has risen from the dead; and, because of this, the powers are working in Him." But others said, "It is Elijah." And others said, "It is a prophet, or as one of the prophets." But Herod, hearing of Him, said, "It is he whom I beheaded, John, the same was raised."

And, an opportune day having come, when Herod, on his birthday, made a supper for his nobles and for the chief captains, and the chief men of Galilee; and the daughter of Herodias herself coming in and dancing, it pleased Herod and those reclining at table with him; and the king said to the damsel, "Ask of me whatsoever you wish, and I will give it to you." And he swore to her, "Whatsoever you ask of me, I will give it to you, unto 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, coming in straight-way, in haste, to the king, she asked, saying, "I wish that you would, forthwith, give me on a dish, the head of John the Immerser." And, though becoming very sorrowful, the king, because of his oaths, and those reclining with him, would not thwart her. And the king, straightway sending off one of his guard, gave orders to bring his head; and, departing, he beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head on a dish, and gave it to the damsel, and the damsel gave it to her mother. And, having heard of it, his disciples came and took up his corpse, and placed it in a tomb.

Now Herod, the tetrarch, heard of all the things that were taking place; and he was thoroughly perplexed, because it was said by some that John was raised from the dead; and by some that Elijah appeared; and, by others, that a certain ancient prophet arose. And Herod said, "John I beheaded; but Who is This concerning Whom I hear such things?" And he was seeking to see Him.


And He, answering, said, "He who dipped with Me his hand in the dish, the same will betray Me.



And as they were reclining at table and eating, Jesus said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me??ne who is eating with Me." They began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him, one by one, "Is it I?" And He said to them, "It is one of the twelve??e that is dipping with Me in the dish. read more.
Because the Son of Man is going as it has been written concerning 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."



















Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye will seek Me; and, as I said to the Jews, 'Whither I go ye cannot come;' so now I say to you.



He said, therefore, again to them, "I go away, and ye will seek Me, and will die in your sins. Whither I go, ye cannot come."

Jesus, therefore, said, "Yet a little while am I with you, and 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, "Verily I say to you, there are some of those standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the Kingdom of God come with power."

From that time began Jesus to show to His disciples, that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and high-priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised up. And Peter, taking Him aside, began to rebuke Him, saying, "God be merciful to Thee! this shall not be to Thee." But, turning, He said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! you are a stumbling-block to Me; because you are not thinking of the things of God, but the things of men." read more.
Then said Jesus to His disciples, "If any one wishes to come after Me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me; for whosoever wishes to save his soul shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose his soul for My sake shall find it; for what will a man be profited, if he gain the whole world, and suffer damage as to his soul? or what will a man give as an exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is about to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then will He render to each one according to his work. Verily I say to you, there are some of those standing here, who will not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom."

And He began to teach them, that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and the high priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. And He spake the saying openly. And Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him. But He, turning about, and seeing the disciples, rebuked Peter, and saith, "Get behind Me, Satan; because you are not minding the things of God, but the things of men." read more.
And, calling the multitude to Him with His disciples, He said to them, "If any one wishes to come after Me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whosoever would save his soul shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his soul for My sake and the Gospel's, shall save it. For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and suffer damage as to his soul? Or what could a man give as an exchange for his soul? For whosoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also will be ashamed of him, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."

saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and high priests, and scribes; and be killed, and on the third day be raised up." And He said to all, "If any one wishes to come after Me, let him disown himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whosoever wishes to save his soul shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his soul for My sake, the same shall save it. read more.
For what is a man profited, in having gained the whole world, but having lost or forfeited himself? For whosoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed, when He cometh in His glory, and in that of the Father, and of the holy angels. And I tell you truly, there are some of those standing here who will in no wise taste of death, till they see the Kingdom of God."


"And to the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write these things," saith the Amen, the Faithful and the True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:



because the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from Thee, and believed that Thou didst send Me.



He is not here; for He arose, as He said. Come! see the place where the Lord was lying;

But he says to them; "Be not amazed. Ye are seeking Jesus the Nazarene, the crucified. He arose; He is not here; behold, the place where they laid Him!

He is not here, but was raised. Remember how He spake to you, being yet in Galilee,

Now on the first day of the sabbaths Mary Magdelene comes early in the morning while it was yet dark to the tomb, and sees the stone taken out of the tomb. She runs, therefore, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and says to them, "They took away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they laid Him!" Peter, therefore, went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb. read more.
And the two were running together; and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb; and, having stooped to look within, he beholds the linen cloths lying; yet he went not within. Simon Peter, therefore, also comes, following him, and he went into the tomb; and beholds the linen cloths lying, and the napkin that was on His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. Then went in, therefore, the other disciple also, who came first to the tomb; and he saw, and believed; for as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise from the dead. The disciples, therefore, went away again to their own home. But Mary was standing without by the tomb, weeping. So, as she was weeping, she stooped to look into the tomb; and she beholds two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She says to them, "Because they took away my Lord, and I know not where they laid Him!" Having said these things, she turned back, and beholds Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, says to Him, "Sir, if thou didst bear Him away, tell me where thou didst lay Him, and I will take Him away!" Jesus saith to her, "Mary!" Turning, she says to Him, in Hebrew, "Rabboni!" (which is to say, Teacher). Jesus saith to her, "Touch Me not; for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, "I ascend to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God." Mary Magdalene comes, proclaiming to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He spake these things to her.


And afterward He was manifested to the eleven themselves, as they were reclining at table, and upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not those who saw Him after He had risen. And He said to them, "Going into all the world, preach the Gospel to the whole creation. He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that disbelieves shall be condemned. read more.
And these signs shall accompany those having believed: in My name will they cast out demons: they will speak with tongues; they will take up serpents; and, if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

Now, as they were telling these things, He Himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, "Peace be to you!" But, being terrified and frightened, they were supposing that they were beholding a spirit. And He said to them, "Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise in your heart? 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 behold Me having." And, saying this, He showed them His hands and His feet. And, while they still disbelieved for joy, and marvelled, He said to them, "Have ye here anything to eat?" And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish; and, taking it, He ate before them. And He said to them, "These are My words which I spake to you, while being yet with you: that all things must be fulfilled, that have been written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms, concerning Me." Then He opened their mind, that they might understand the Scriptures; and He said to them, "Thus it has been written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. Ye are witnesses of these things, And, behold, I send forth the promise of My Father upon you; but abide ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high."

When, therefore, it was evening, on that day, the first day of sabbaths; and, when, through fear of the Jews, the doors were shut, where the disciples were; Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, "Peace be to you!" And, having said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples, therefore, rejoiced, when they saw the Lord. Jesus, therefore, said to them again, "Peace be to you! As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you." read more.
And, having said this, He breathed upon them, and said to them, "Receive ye the Holy Spirit. Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them; whosesoever sins ye retain, they are retained."












where, as Forerunner in our behalf, Jesus entered, having become a High Priest forever, according to the rank of Melchizedek.


as also, in another place, He saith, "Thou art a Priest forever according to the rank of Melchizedek";

And it is yet far more evident; if, according to the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another Priest,

for it is testified of Him, "Thou art a Priest forever according to the rank of Melchizedek."


And they come to Jericho: and, as He was going forth from Jericho, with His disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road. And, hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, and say, "Son of David! Jesus! have mercy on me!" And many were rebuking him, that he should be silent. But he kept crying much more, "Son of David! have mercy on me!" read more.
And, standing still, Jesus said, "Call him." And they call the blind man, saying to him, "Be of good cheer; arise, He is calling you!" And he, casting away his garment, springing up, came to Jesus. And Jesus, answering him, said, "What do you wish that I should do for you?" And the blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight." And Jesus said to him, "Go your way, your faith has healed you." And straightway he received sight, and was following Jesus in the way.

And, as they were going forth from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And, behold, two blind men, sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Thou Son of David!" But the multitude rebuked them, that they should be silent. But they cried the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Thou Son of David!" read more.
And, standing still, Jesus called them, and said, "What do you wish that I should do to you?" They say to Him, "Lord, that our eyes may be opened." And, moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and straightway they received sight; and followed Him.

And it came to pass, when He was drawing near to Jericho, that a certain blind man was sitting by the wayside, begging. And, hearing a multitude passing along, he was inquiring what this might be. And they told him, that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by. read more.
And he cried, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" And those going before were rebuking him, that he should be silent; but he kept crying out much more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" And Jesus, standing still, commanded that he be brought to Him; and, when he drew near, He asked him, "What do you wish that I should do for you?" And he said, "Lord, that I may receive sight." And Jesus said to him, "Receive sight; your faith has made you whole." And instantly he received sight, and was following Him, glorifying God. And all the people, seeing it, gave praise to God.


Then the Pharisees, going, took counsel how they might ensnare Him in speech. And they send to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that Thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, and carest not for any one; for Thou dost not look into the face of men: tell us, therefore, what thinkest Thou: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not?" read more.
But Jesus, knowing their wickedness, said, "Why are ye tempting Me, hypocrites? Show me the tribute-coin." And they brought Him a denary. And He saith to them, "Whose is this image and inscription?" They say to Him, "Caesar's." Then saith He to them, "Render, therefore, the things of Caesar to Caesar, and the things of God to God." And, hearing it, they wondered: and, leaving Him, they went away.

And they send to Him some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they may entrap Him in speech. And, coming, they say to Him, "Teacher, we know that Thou art true, and carest not for any one; for Thou lookest not into the face of men, but in truth teachest the way of God. Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Shall we give, or shall we not give?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why are ye tempting Me? Bring Me a denary, that I may see it." read more.
And they brought it. And He saith to them, "Whose is this image and inscription?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's." And Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God." And they wondered exceedingly at Him.

And, watching Him, they sent forth spies, feigning themselves to be righteous, that they might take hold of His speech, so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor. And they asked Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that Thou sayest and teachest rightly, and regardest no person, but teachest the way of God in truth. Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not?" read more.
But, perceiving their craftiness, He said to them, "Show Me a denary. Whose image and inscription has it?" And, answering; they said, "Caesar's." And He said to them, "Then, render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were not able to lay hold of any saying of His before the people; and, marvelling at His answer, they were silent.


And, behold, one, having come near, said to Him, "Teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" And He said to him, "Why do you question Me concerning the good? One is the Good. But, if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments." He says to Him, "Which?" And Jesus said, "You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; read more.
honor your father and your mother; and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself." The young man says to Him, "I observed all these things; what yet do I lack?" Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven; and come, follow Me." But the young man, having heard this saying, went away grieved; for he was one who had large possessions.

And, as He was going forth into the way, one, running to Him, and kneeling, was asking Him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do, that I may inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to Him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good, but One??od. You know the commandments, 'Do not kill,' 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not steal,' Do not bear false witness,' 'Do not defraud,' 'Honor your father and mother.'" read more.
And he said to Him, "Teacher, all these things I observed from my youth." And Jesus, looking on him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing is wanting to you: go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven, and come, follow Me." But, becoming gloomy at this saying, he went away grieved; for he was one having great possessions.

And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, "Good Teacher, by doing what shall I inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good, but One??od. You know the commandments, 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not kill,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not bear false witness,' 'Honor your father and your mother.'" read more.
And he said, "All these I observed from my youth." And Jesus, hearing it said to him, "Yet one thing is lacking to you; sell all that you have, and distribute to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven, and come, follow Me." And, when he heard these things, he became very sorrowful; for he was exceedingly rich. And Jesus, seeing him, said, "With what difficulty do those having riches enter into the Kingdom of God!


On that day there came to Him Sadducees, those saying there is no resurrection, and questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses said, 'If any one die, 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, marrying, died; and, not having seed, he left his wife to his brother. read more.
Likewise also the second, and the third, unto the seventh. And after them all, the woman died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her." But Jesus, answering, said to them, "Ye deceive yourselves, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God; for in the resurrection, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as angels in Heaven. "But concerning the resurrection of the dead, did 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?' He is not the God of the dead, but of the living." And the multitudes, hearing Him, were astonished at His teaching.

And there come to Him the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they were asking Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote to us, 'If any man's brother die, and leave a wife behind, and leave no child, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed to 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, leaving no seed; and the third likewise. And the seven left no seed. Last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her as a wife." Jesus said to them, "Is it not on this account that ye err, because ye know not the Scriptures, nor the power of God? For, when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels in Heaven. But, concerning the dead, that they are raised, did ye not read in the book of Moses, at the 'Bush,' how God spake to him, 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 of the living: ye do greatly err."

And some of the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection, coming near, asked Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us, 'If any one's brother die, having a wife, and he be childless, that his brother should take the wife, and raise up seed to his brother.' There were, therefore, seven brothers; and the first, taking a wife, died childless. read more.
And the second, and the third, took her; and, in like manner also, the seven left no children, and died. At last the woman also died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of them does the woman become? for the seven had her as wife." And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage; but those accounted worthy to obtain 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 equal to the angels, 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 the Lord 'The God of Abraham the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' Now He is not a God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to him." And some of the scribes, answering, said, "Teacher, Thou spakest well;" for no longer were they daring to question Him.


And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus was going before them. And they were being amazed: and those following Him were being terrified. And, again taking with Him the twelve, He began to tell them the things about to happen to Him: "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered up to the high priests, and to the scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, and will deliver Him up to the gentiles; and they will mock Him and will spit upon Him, and will scourge Him, and will kill Him; and after three days He will rise again."

And, when about to go up to Jerusalem, Jesus took with Him the twelve disciples privately, and on the way He said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the high-priests and scribes; and they will condemn Him to death; and will deliver Him up to the gentiles, to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify; and, on the third day, He will be raised up "

And, taking the twelve aside, He said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and all the things, written through the prophets respecting the Son of Man, will be accomplished; for He will be delivered up to the gentiles, and will be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon, and they will scourge Him, and kill Him; and, on the third day, He will rise again." read more.
And they understood none of these things; and this saying was hidden from them, and they were not understanding the things being said.


And they were bringing little children to Him, that He might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus, seeing it, was much displeased, and said to them, "Permit the little children to come to Me; forbid them not; for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Verily I say to you, whosoever does not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, will in no wise enter therein." read more.
And, taking them in His arms, He was blessing them, placing His hands upon them.

Then were brought to Him little children, that He might put His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Permit the little children??nd do not forbid them??o come to Me; for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." And, having laid His hands on them, He departed thence.

And they were bringing to Him their babes, also, that He might touch them; but the disciples, seeing it, were rebuking them. But Jesus called them to Him, saying, "Suffer the little children to come to Me, and forbid them not; for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Verily I say to you, whosoever does not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, shall in no wise enter therein."


And, as they were going forth from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And, behold, two blind men, sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Thou Son of David!" But the multitude rebuked them, that they should be silent. But they cried the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Thou Son of David!" read more.
And, standing still, Jesus called them, and said, "What do you wish that I should do to you?" They say to Him, "Lord, that our eyes may be opened." And, moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes, and straightway they received sight; and followed Him.

And it came to pass, when He was drawing near to Jericho, that a certain blind man was sitting by the wayside, begging. And, hearing a multitude passing along, he was inquiring what this might be. And they told him, that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by. read more.
And he cried, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" And those going before were rebuking him, that he should be silent; but he kept crying out much more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" And Jesus, standing still, commanded that he be brought to Him; and, when he drew near, He asked him, "What do you wish that I should do for you?" And he said, "Lord, that I may receive sight." And Jesus said to him, "Receive sight; your faith has made you whole." And instantly he received sight, and was following Him, glorifying God. And all the people, seeing it, gave praise to God.

And they come to Jericho: and, as He was going forth from Jericho, with His disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road. And, hearing that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, and say, "Son of David! Jesus! have mercy on me!" And many were rebuking him, that he should be silent. But he kept crying much more, "Son of David! have mercy on me!" read more.
And, standing still, Jesus said, "Call him." And they call the blind man, saying to him, "Be of good cheer; arise, He is calling you!" And he, casting away his garment, springing up, came to Jesus.



Wherefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed upon Him the name which is above every name;




And straightway He constrained the disciples to enter into a boat, and to go before Him to the other side, while He should dismiss the multitudes. And, having dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the mountain, apart, to pray; and, evening coming on, He was there alone. But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary. read more.
And, in the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking on the sea. And the disciples, seeing Him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. But Jesus straightway spake to them, saying, "Be of good cheer. It is I; be not afraid." And Peter, answering Him, said, "Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come to Thee on the water." And He said, "Come." And, going down from the boat, Peter walked upon the water, and came to Jesus. But, seeing the wind, he was frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" And immediately Jesus, stretching forth His hand, took hold of him, and saith to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And, when they went up into the boat, the wind ceased. And these in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "Truly Thou art God's Son."

And straightway He constrained His disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He Himself sendeth the multitude away. And, having taken leave of them, He went away into the mountain to pray. And, when it was evening, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and He was alone on the land. read more.
And, seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary to them, about the fourth watch of the night He cometh to them, walking on the sea; and He wished to pass by them; but, seeing Him walking on the sea, they supposed that it was a ghost, and they cried out; for they all saw Him; and were troubled. But he straight-way talked with them, and saith to them, "Be of good courage! it is I, be not afraid." And He went up to them into the boat; and the wind ceased; and they were exceedingly amazed in themselves: for they did not understand concerning the loaves, but their heart was hardened.

The men, therefore, seeing the sign that He did, said, "This, truly, is the Prophet Who cometh into the world." Jesus, therefore, perceiving that they were about to come and take Him by force, to make Him King, withdrew again into the mountain, Himself alone. And, when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea; read more.
and, entering into a boat, they were going over the sea to Capernaum; and it had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. And, a strong wind blowing, the sea was being much raised. Having rowed, therefore, about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing near to the boat; and they were afraid. But He saith to them, "It is I; be not afraid." They were willing, therefore, to receive Him into the boat; and straightway the boat was at the land whither they were going.


Another parable He set before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man, having taken, sowed in his field: which, indeed, is less than all the seeds; but, when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the heaven come and roost in its branches."

And He said, "To what is the Kingdom of God like? and to what shall I liken it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man, taking, cast into his own garden; and it grew, and became a tree; and the birds of the heaven lodged in its branches."

And He said, "How shall we liken the Kingdom of God, or in what parable shall we set it forth? It is like to a grain of mustard, which when it is sown upon the earth, though it is less than all the seeds that are upon the earth, yet, when it is sown, grows up, and becomes greater than all the herbs, and puts out great branches; so that the birds of the heaven can lodge under its shadow."


And on the first day of the unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Where dost Thou wish that we should prepare for Thee to eat the passover?" And He said, "Go away into the city to such a one, and say to him, 'The Teacher saith, My time is at hand; with you I observe the passover together with My disciples.'" And the disciples did as Jesus directed them, and prepared the passover. read more.
And, evening coming on, He was reclining at table with the twelve; and, as they were eating, He said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me." And, being exceedingly grieved, they began to say to Him, each one, "Is it I, Lord?" And He, answering, said, "He who dipped with Me his hand in the dish, the same will betray Me. The Son of Man, indeed, goeth, as it has been written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It were good for him, if that man had never been born!" And Judas, who betrayed Him, answering, said, "Is it I, Rabbi?" He says to him, "You said it." And, as they were eating, Jesus, taking a loaf and blessing it, broke it, and giving to his disciples, said, "Take, eat, this is My body." And, taking a cup, and offering thanks, He gave to the disciples, saying, "Drink of it, all ye; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is shed in behalf of many for remission of sins. And I say to you, I will not drink henceforth of this product of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in the Kingdom of My Father." And, having sung praises, they went out into the mount of Olives.

And, on the first day of the unleavened bread, when they were slaying the passover, His disciples say to Him, "Where dost Thou wish that we, going, prepare, that Thou mayest eat the passover?" And He sendeth two of His disciples, and saith to them, "Go your way into the city; and there will meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water; follow him. And, wheresoever he enters, say ye to the master of the house, 'The Teacher saith, Where is My guest-chamber, where I may eat the passover with My disciples?' read more.
And he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; and there make ready for us." And the disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as He said to them; and they made ready the passover. And, evening coming on, He cometh with the twelve. And as they were reclining at table and eating, Jesus said, "Verily I say to you, one of you will betray Me??ne who is eating with Me." They began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him, one by one, "Is it I?" And He said to them, "It is one of the twelve??e that is dipping with Me in the dish. Because the Son of Man is going as it has been written concerning 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, as they were eating, having taken bread and blessed it, He broke, and gave to them, and said, "Take ye; this is My body." And taking a cup, and blessing it, He gave it to them; and they all drank of it. And He said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out in behalf of many. Verily I say to you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of God."

And the day of unleavened bread came, on which the passover must be sacrificed. And He sent Peter and John, saying, "Going forth, make ready for us the passover, that we may eat." And they said to Him, "Where dost Thou wish that we make ready?" read more.
And He said to them, "Behold, when ye have entered into the city, there will meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house into which he enters. And ye shall say to the master of the house, The Teacher saith to you, 'Where is the guest-chamber, where I may eat the passover with My disciples?' And he will show you a large upper room furnished, there make ready." And, going away, they found as He had said to them; and they made ready the passover. And, when the hour came, He reclined at table, and His apostles with Him. And He said to them, "With desire I desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: for I say to you, I will in no wise eat it, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." And, having taken a cup, and giving thanks, He said, "Take this, and share it among yourselves; for I say to you, that I will in no wise drink, henceforth, of the product of the vine, until the Kingdom of God shall come." And, taking bread, and giving thanks, He broke, and gave to them, saying, "This is My body, which is given for you; this do in remembrance of Me." And the cup, in like manner, after supper, saying "this cup is the new covenant in My blood, which, in your behalf, is being poured out.


Then there was brought to Him a demoniac, blind, and dumb; and He healed him, so that the dumb man spake and saw. And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, Can this be the Son of David?" But the Pharisees, hearing it, said, "This Man doth not cast out the demons, except by Beelzebub, prince of the demons." read more.
And, knowing their thoughts, He said to them, "Every kingdom, divided against itself, is brought to naught; and every city or house, divided against itself, shall not stand. And, if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how, then, shall his kingdom stand And, if I by Beelzebub cast out the demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore, they shall be your judges. But, if I by the Spirit of God cast out the demons, then the Kingdom of God came upon you unexpectedly. Or how can one enter into the house of the strong man, and seize upon his goods, unless he first bind the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathers not with Me scatters. Therefore, I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven. And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whosoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven, neither in this age nor in that which is to come. Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree worthless and its fruit worthless; for from the fruit the tree is known. "Broods of vipers! how can ye speak good things, being yourselves evil? For, out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. The good man, out of his good treasure, puts forth good things; and the evil man, out of his evil treasure, puts forth evil things. And I say to you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account concerning it in the day of judgment; for by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned."

and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him. And He cometh into a house. And the multitude comes together again, so that they could not even eat bread. And, hearing of it, His kinsmen went out to lay hold on Him; for they said, "He became insane!" read more.
And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, "He hath Beelzebub, and by the ruler of the demons casteth out the demons." And, having called them to Him, 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 will not be able to stand. And, if Satan did arise against himself, and was divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. But no one is able, after having entered into the house of the strong man, to plunder his goods, except he first bind the strong man; and then will he plunder his house. Verily I say to you, all the sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and the blasphemies whatsoever they blaspheme; but whosoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit has no forgiveness forever, but is guilty of an eternal sin; because they said, 'He hath an unclean spirit.'"

And He was casting out a dumb demon. And it came to pass that, when the demon went out, the dumb spake, and the multitudes marvelled. But some of them said, "By Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons, He is casting out the demons." And others, tempting, were seeking of Him a sign from heaven. read more.
But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Every kingdom, divided against itself, is made desolate; and a house divided against a house falls. And, if Satan also were divided against himself, how would his kingdom stand? because ye say that by Beelzebub I am casting out the demons! But, if I, by Beelzebub, cast out the demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore, they shall be your judges. But, if I, by the finger of God, cast out the demons, then the Kingdom of God came upon you unexpectedly. "When the strong man, fully armed, is guarding his own court, his goods are in peace; but, when a stronger than he, coming upon him, overcomes him, he takes away his whole armor upon which he had relied, and distributes his spoils. He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who is not gathering with Me is scattering. "When the unclean spirit goes out from the man, it passes through waterless places, seeking rest; and, not finding it, it says, 'I will return into my house whence I came out.' And, coming, it finds it swept and decorated. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself; and, entering in, they make their abode there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first."


And straightway He constrained the disciples to enter into a boat, and to go before Him to the other side, while He should dismiss the multitudes. And, having dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the mountain, apart, to pray; and, evening coming on, He was there alone. But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, distressed by the waves; for the wind was contrary. read more.
And, in the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking on the sea. And the disciples, seeing Him walking on the sea, were troubled, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. But Jesus straightway spake to them, saying, "Be of good cheer. It is I; be not afraid." And Peter, answering Him, said, "Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come to Thee on the water." And He said, "Come." And, going down from the boat, Peter walked upon the water, and came to Jesus. But, seeing the wind, he was frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" And immediately Jesus, stretching forth His hand, took hold of him, and saith to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And, when they went up into the boat, the wind ceased. And these in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "Truly Thou art God's Son." And, passing over, they came upon the land to Gennesaret. And, recognizing Him, the men of that place sent into all that region round about, and brought to Him all who were sick; and they were beseeching Him, that they might only touch the border of His garment; and as many as touched it were made thoroughly well.

And straightway He constrained His disciples to enter into the boat, and to go before to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He Himself sendeth the multitude away. And, having taken leave of them, He went away into the mountain to pray. And, when it was evening, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and He was alone on the land. read more.
And, seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary to them, about the fourth watch of the night He cometh to them, walking on the sea; and He wished to pass by them; but, seeing Him walking on the sea, they supposed that it was a ghost, and they cried out; for they all saw Him; and were troubled. But he straight-way talked with them, and saith to them, "Be of good courage! it is I, be not afraid." And He went up to them into the boat; and the wind ceased; and they were exceedingly amazed in themselves: for they did not understand concerning the loaves, but their heart was hardened. And, crossing over, they came upon the land to Gennesaret, and anchored there. And, when they came out of the boat, straightway recognizing Him, they ran about that whole country, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick, where they were hearing that He was. And wheresoever He was entering into villages, or into cities, or into the country, they placed the sick in the marketplaces, and were beseeching Him, that they might touch even the border of His garment; and as many as touched were healed.

Jesus, therefore, perceiving that they were about to come and take Him by force, to make Him King, withdrew again into the mountain, Himself alone. And, when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea; and, entering into a boat, they were going over the sea to Capernaum; and it had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. read more.
And, a strong wind blowing, the sea was being much raised. Having rowed, therefore, about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing near to the boat; and they were afraid. But He saith to them, "It is I; be not afraid." They were willing, therefore, to receive Him into the boat; and straightway the boat was at the land whither they were going.


And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee; and a report went out concerning Him through all the region round about.

And, after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of God,

And, hearing that John was delivered up, He withdrew into Galilee.

When, therefore, the Lord knew that the Pharisees heard that Jesus was making and immersing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself did not immerse, but His disciples), He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.


And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What is this? A new teaching! With authority He commandeth even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him!"

And, coming into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Whence hath this Man this wisdom, and the mighty works?

The officers answered, "Never did man speak thus!"

and they were astonished at His teaching, because His word was with authority.


And, when they came to the multitude, there approached Him a man, kneeling to Him, and saying, "Lord, have mercy on my son, because he is lunatic, and suffers grievously; for often he 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 Jesus, answering, said, "O faithless and perverted generation! How long shall I be with you? Bring him here to Me." And Jesus rebuked it, and the demon went out of him, and the boy was healed from that hour. Then the disciples, coming near, said to Jesus privately, "Why could not we cast it out?" And He saith to them, "Because of your little faith. For verily I say to you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say to this mountain, 'Remove hence yonder,' and it will be removed, and nothing shall be impossible to you." ["But this kind goes not out, except by prayer and fasting.]

And, coming to the disciples, they saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. And straightway all the multitude, seeing Him, were greatly amazed; and, running to Him, were saluting Him. And He asked them, "What are ye discussing with them?" read more.
And one of the multitude answered Him, "Teacher, I have brought to Thee my son, who has a dumb spirit; and wheresoever it seizes upon him, it tears him, and he foams, and gnashes his teeth, and pines away. And I spake to Thy disciples, that they should cast it out; and they were not able." And He, answering, saith to them, "O faithless generation! how long shall I be with you! how long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me." And they brought him to Him. And, seeing Him, the spirit straightway convulsed him; and, falling upon the ground, he was wallowing, foaming. And He asked his father, "How long a time is it since this has befallen him?" And he said, "From a child. And oft-times it cast him both into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but, if Thou canst do anything, having compassion on us, help us!" Jesus said to him, "'If thou canst!' All things are possible to him that believes." Straight-way the father of the child, crying out, said, "I believe; help Thou my unbelief!" And Jesus, seeing that a multitude was running together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him, and enter no more into him." And, having cried out, and convulsed him much, it came out; and he became as one dead; so that many said, "He died!" But Jesus, taking hold of his hand, raised him, and he stood up. And, when He came into a house, His disciples asked Him privately, "Why could not we cast it out?" And He said to them, "This kind can come out by nothing, except by prayer."

And it came to pass on the next day, when they came down from the mountain, that a great multitude met Him. And, behold, a man from the multitude cried, saying, "Teacher, I pray Thee to look upon my son, because he is my only begotten. And, behold, a spirit takes him, and suddenly he cries out, and it convulses him with foaming, and with difficulty it departs from him, bruising him; read more.
and I besought Thy disciples to cast it out, but they were not able." And Jesus answering, said, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and bear with you? Bring your son here." And, while he was yet coming, the demon thrust him down, and greatly convulsed him. 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! And while all were marvelling at all the things which He was doing, He said to His disciples,


And He began to speak to them in parables, "A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into another country. And, at the season, he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruits of the vineyard. And, taking him, they beat him, and sent him away empty. read more.
And again he sent to them another servant; and him they wounded in the head, and dishonored. And he sent another; and him they killed; and many others, beating some, and killing some. He had yet one, a beloved son; he sent him to them last, saying, 'They will pay deference to my son.' But those husbandmen said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' And, taking him, they killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. What, therefore, will the lord of the vineyard do! He will come, and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others. Did ye never read the Scripture, "The stone which the builders rejected, the same became the head of a corner; this was from the Lord, and is marvelous in our eyes?" And they were seeking to lay hold of Him; and they feared the multitude; for they knew that He spake the parable against them; and, leaving Him, they went away.

"Hear another parable. There was a man?? householder??ho planted a vineyard, and placed a fence around it, and dug a wine-press, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went abroad. And, when the season of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen to receive his fruits. And the husbandmen, taking his servants, one, indeed, they beat; and one they killed; and one they stoned. read more.
Again he sent other servants more than the first; and they treated them likewise. But afterward he sent to them his son, saying, 'They will reverence my son.' But the husbandmen, seeing the son, said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and have his inheritance!' And, taking him, they cast him forth out of the vineyard, and killed him. When, therefore, the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those husband-men?" They say to Him, "He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will let out the vineyard to other husbandmen, who will render to him the fruits in their seasons." Jesus saith to them, "Did ye never read in the Scriptures, 'The stone which the builders rejected, the same was made head of a corner; this was from the Lord, and it is marvellous in our eyes?' "Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God shall be taken away from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruit thereof. And he who falls on this stone shall be broken in pieces; but on whomsoever it falls, it will scatter him as dust."

And He began to speak to the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, and let it out to husbandmen, and went abroad for a long time. And, at the season, he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard; but the husbandmen, beating him, sent him away empty. "And he seat still another servant: and him also, having beaten and dishonored, they sent away empty. read more.
"And he sent still a third; and they, having wounded this one, cast him out. "And the lord of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my son, the beloved; perhaps they will reverence him.' "But, seeing him, the husbandmen were reasoning one with another, saying, 'This is the heir; let us kill him, that the inheritance may become ours.' And, having thrust him forth out of the vineyard, they slew him. What, therefore, will the lord of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy these husbandmen, and give the vineyard to others." And, having heard it, they said, "May it not be!" And He, looking upon them, said, "What, then, is this that has been written? 'A stone which the builders rejected, the same became a head of the corner.' 'Every one who falls on that stone shall be broken to pieces; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will scatter him as dust!'





If ye knew Me, ye would know My Father also; from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him." Philip says to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices us." Jesus saith to him, "So long a time am I with you, and you do not know Me, Philip! He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how say you, 'Show us the Father?' read more.
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I say to you, I speak not from Myself; but the Father, abiding in Me, doeth His works.

And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them.


And, while they were assembled together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men; and they will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised up." And they were grieved exceedingly.

And, going forth thence, they were passing along through Galilee; and He did not wish that any one should know it. For He was teaching His disciples, and said to them, "The Son of Man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and, having been killed, after three days He will rise again." But they were not understanding the saying, and were afraid to ask Him.

And they were all amazed at the Majesty of God! And while all were marvelling at all the things which He was doing, He said to His disciples, "Put ye these words into your ears; for the Son of Man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men." But they did not understand this saying; and it was veiled from them, that they might not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him concerning this saying.


And, when they came to the multitude, there approached Him a man, kneeling to Him, and saying, "Lord, have mercy on my son, because he is lunatic, and suffers grievously; for often he falls into the fire, and often into the water.

The Lord Jesus, therefore, after He spake to them, was caught up into Heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they, going forth, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word through the signs closely following.

And He led them as far as to Bethany; and, lifting up His hands, He blessed them. And it came to pass that, while He was blessing them, He parted from them, and was borne up into Heaven. And they, worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy; read more.
and were continually in the temple, blessing God.

And, having said these things, while they were beholding, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him from their sight. And, as they were gazing intently into the heaven, while He was ascending, behold, also two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do ye stand looking into the heaven? This Jesus, Who was taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye beheld Him ascending into Heaven." read more.
Then they returned to Jerusalem from a mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a sabbath day's journey.


And He began to speak to them in parables, "A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and dug a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into another country.

Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your law, 'I said, ye are gods?' If He called them gods to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), say ye of Him Whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God? read more.
If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not; but, if I do them, even though ye believe not Me, believe the works; that ye may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father."

Jesus saith to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Me. If ye knew Me, ye would know My Father also; from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him." Philip says to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it suffices us." read more.
Jesus saith to him, "So long a time am I with you, and you do not know Me, Philip! He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how say you, 'Show us the Father?'

Believe Me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; or, else, believe Me because of the works themselves.

Jesus spake these things; and, lifting up His eyes to Heaven, said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee; even as Thou gavest Him authority over all flesh, that to all Whom Thou hast given Him He should give eternal life. And this is the eternal life, that they know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom Thou didst send. read more.
I glorified Thee on the earth; having completed the work which Thou hast given Me to do. And, now, Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine Own Self, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was. I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world. Thine they were; and Thou gavest them to Me; and they have kept Thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou gavest Me are from Thee; because the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them, and they received them, and knew truly that I came forth from Thee, and believed that Thou didst send Me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom Thou hast given Me; because they are Thine. And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world; and these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep, in Thine Own name, those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, even as we are. While I was with them, I was keeping, in Thy name, those Whom Thou hast given Me; and I guarded them, and no one of them perished, except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But now I come to Thee, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves. I have given them Thy word, and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth. As Thou didst send Me into the world, I also sent them into the world; and in their behalf I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. And I do not pray for these only, but for those also who believe on Me through their word; that they may all be one, even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me. And the glory which Thou hast given to Me I have given to them, that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and lovedst them, even as Thou didst love Me.
