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;

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;

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. read more.
In Him was Life; and the Life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a testimony, that he might testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through him. He was not the Light; but he came, that he might testify concerning the Light. He was the true Light That lighteth every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world knew Him not.

giving thanks to the Father, Who made us meet for the portion of the inheritance of the saints in light; Who delivered us out of the dominion of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love; in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins; read more.
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.


For this escapes them willingly, that there were heavens of old, and an earth set together out of water, and through water, by the word of God: through which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished; but the present heavens and the earth, by the same word, have been stored up for fire, being kept unto the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

The same came for a testimony, that he might testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through him. He was not the Light; but he came, that he might testify concerning the Light. He was the true Light That lighteth every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world knew Him not. He came to His own possessions, and those who were His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those believing in His name; who were born, not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us, (and we beheld His glory??lory as of the Only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth. John testifies concerning Him, and has cried, saying, "This was He of Whom I said, 'He That cometh after me hath become before me, because He was before me;'" because out of His fulness we all received, and grace for grace: because the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He declared Him.



Now in those days comes John, the Immerser, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, saying, "Repent ye for the Kingdom of Heaven has drawn near; for this is he that was spoken of by Isaiah, the prophet, saying, 'A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.'"

in the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness; and he came into all the region of the Jordan, preaching the immersion of repentance unto remission of sins;

And, asking for a writing tablet, he wrote, saying, "John is his name." And they all marveled. And his mouth was instantly opened, and his tongue loosed, and he was speaking, blessing God. And fear came upon all those dwelling around them. And in all the hill country of Judea all these sayings were being much talked of; read more.
and all who heard laid them up in their heart, saying, "What, then, shall this child be!" For, indeed, the hand of the Lord was with him. And Zacharias, his father, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he prophesied, saying, "Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, because He visited, and wrought redemption for His people; and raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of David His servant; (as He spake through the mouth of His holy prophets from of old), salvation from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us; to show mercy towards our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant; the oath which He swore to Abraham, our father; to grant to us that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days. "And you also, child, shall be called 'Prophet of the Most High;' for you shall go before the face of the Lord, to prepare His ways;

John testifies concerning Him, and has cried, saying, "This was He of Whom I said, 'He That cometh after me hath become before me, because He was before me;'"

John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing, unless it has been given to him from Heaven. Ye yourselves bear me testimony, that I said, 'I am not the Christ, but that I have been sent before Him.'

Ye have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth. But the testimony I receive is not from man; but these things I say, that ye may be saved. He was a lamp that was burning and shining; and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

And, having called together the twelve, He gave them power and authority over all the demons, and to heal diseases; and He sent them forth to preach the Kingdom of God, and to heal the sick;

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; but ye shall receive power, the Holy Spirit having come upon you, and ye shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and Samaria, and to the utmost limit of the earth."

And the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Thy name!" And He said to them, "I was beholding Satan fallen as lightning out of the heavens. Behold, I have given you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall in any wise harm you. read more.
Notwithstanding, rejoice not in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice, because your names have been written in Heaven."

As for you, let that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you. If that which ye heard from the beginning abide in you, ye also shall abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise which He Himself promised us, the eternal life. These things I wrote to you concerning those who would deceive you. read more.
And the Anointing which ye received from Him abideth in you, and ye have no need that anyone teach you; but as His Anointing teacheth you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as He taught you, ye abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him; that, if He shall be manifested, we may have confidence, and not be put away from Him with shame at His coming. If ye know that He is righteous, ye know that every one that does righteousness has been begotten of Him.

And there entered a reasoning among them, as to which of them should be greatest.

and the man's foes will be those of his own house-hold. "He that loves father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me; and he that loves son or daughter more than Me, is not worthy of Me.

He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

Jesus saith to him, "He who has bathed has no need, except to wash his feet, but is wholly clean; and ye are clean, but not all;" for He knew him who would betray Him; on this account, He said, "Ye are not all clean." When, therefore, He washed their feet, and took His garments, and reclined again, He said to them, "Do ye know what I have done to you? read more.
Ye call Me 'The Teacher,' and 'The Lord;' and ye say well; for so I am. If, therefore, I, 'The Lord,' and 'The Teacher,' washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet; for I gave you an example, that, as I did to you, ye also should do. Verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor one who is sent greater than he who sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye, if ye do them. 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."

"Whosoever receives one of such little children in My name, receives Me; and whosoever receives Me, receives not Me, but Him Who sent Me." John said to Him, "Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in Thy name; and we forbade him, because he was not following us." But Jesus said, "Forbid him not; for there is no one who shall exercise power in My name, and be able quickly to speak evil of Me;

For, as the Father hath life in Himself, so also He gave to the Son to have life in Himself; and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Marvel not at this; because there is an hour coming, in which all who are in their tombs shall hear His voice, and come forth; those who did good, to the resurrection of life; but those who practiced evil, to the resurrection of judgment. I can of Myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous; because I seek not My Own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me.

He was a lamp that was burning and shining; and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have a testimony greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given Me to accomplish, the very works that I am doing testify concerning Me, that the Father hath sent Me. And the Father Who sent Me, He hath testified concerning Me. Ye have neither at any time heard His voice, nor seen His form. And ye have not His word abiding in you; because Whom He sent, Him ye believe not. Ye search the Scriptures; because in them ye think ye have eternal life; and these are they that testify concerning Me; and ye are not willing to come to Me, that ye may have life. I receive not glory from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves. I have come in My Father's name, and ye receive Me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, who receive glory from one another, and the glory which is from God only ye seek not? Think not that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you, Moses on whom ye have set your hope. For, if ye were believing Moses, ye would believe Me; for he wrote concerning Me. But, if ye believe not his writings, how will ye believe My words?"

And I saw Heaven opened; and, behold, a white horse, and He Who sat on him, called Faithful and True; and in righteousness doth He judge and make war. And His eyes are as a flame of fire; and on His head are many diadems; having a name written which no one knows but Himself; and He is clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood; and His name is called "THE WORD OF GOD." read more.
And the armies in Heaven were following Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white, pure. And out of His mouth proceeds a sharp sword, that with it He may smite the nations, and He will govern them with a rod of iron; and He treadeth the wine-press of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.

But Peter and the apostles, answering, said, "It is proper to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, Whom ye slew, having suspended Him on a tree: This One God exalted as a Prince and Savior, with His right hand, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins. read more.
And we are witnesses of these things; also the Holy Spirit, Whom God gave to those who obey Him."

Ye know the word that came throughout all Judaea, after the immersion which John preached; even Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power; Who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the Devil; because God was with Him. And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem; Whom they also slew, hanging Him on a tree. read more.

And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to fully testify that it is He Who hath been ordained by God Judge of the living and dead.

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; but ye shall receive power, the Holy Spirit having come upon you, and ye shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and Samaria, and to the utmost limit of the earth." read more.
And, having said these things, while they were beholding, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him from their sight.

This Jesus, Who was taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye beheld Him ascending into Heaven."

And, as he was holding Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch, which is called Solomon's, greatly astonished. And Peter, seeing it, spake to the people, "Men of Israel, why do ye wonder at this? Or why look ye so intently on us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him to walk The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Child Jesus, Whom ye, indeed, delivered up, and denied before Pilate's face, when he gave judgment to release Him; read more.

Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who obtained an equally precious faith with us, in the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: grace to you, and peace be multiplied in a full knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; since His divine power has given to us all things pertaining to life and godliness, through the full knowledge of Him Who called us through His glory and virtue; read more.
through which have been given to us very great and precious promises, that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world in lust: and, even for this very reason, adding all diligence, in your faith supply virtue; and in virtue, knowledge; and in knowledge, continence; and in continence, patience; and in patience, godliness; and in godliness, brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love. For these things, belonging to you and abounding, make you neither idle nor unfruitful regarding the full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; for he to whom these things are lacking is blind, seeing dimly, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins. Wherefore, brethren, give the more diligence to make your calling and election sure; for, if ye do these things, ye shall in nowise ever stumble; for thus shall there be richly supplied to you the entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Wherefore, I shall be always ready to remind you of these things, though ye know them, and have become confirmed in the present truth. And I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by reminding you; knowing that speedy is the putting off of my tabernacle, as also our Lord Jesus Christ signified to me. And I will also give diligence that at all times ye may be able, after my departure, to perpetuate the remembrance of these things. For, not as having followed after cunningly-devised stories, did we make known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but as having been made spectators of His majesty.
