So the sisters sent to him, saying. "Master, see who you hold dear is ill." When Jesus heard it he said, "This illness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that through it the Son of God may be glorified." Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. read more.
However, when he heard that he was ill, he still remained where he was for two days; then after that he said to his disciples, "Let us go back again to Judea." "Rabbi," answered his disciples, "it was but just now that the Jews were trying to stone you, and are you going there again?" Jesus replied. "Are there not twelve hours in the daytime? If any one walks in the daytime he does not stumble, because he beholds the light of this world; but if any one walks during the night he does stumble, because the light is not in him." This he said, then told them, "Lazarus, our friend, has fallen asleep, but I am going to wake him." "Master, if he has fallen asleep, he will get well," replied the disciples. Now Jesus had been speaking concerning his death, but they thought that he was talking about natural sleep. So then he told them plainly. "Lazarus is dead; and for your sakes I am glad I was not there, in order that you may believe. Come, let us go to him." Upon this Thomas, who was called "The Twin," said to his fellow disciples, "Let us go too, that we may die with him."


He made proclamation. "There is One mightier than I coming after me, and I am not worthy to stoop down and unfasten his sandal strap; I have baptized you in water, but he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit."

John bore witness concerning him, and cried aloud, saying, "This is he of whom I said, 'He who is coming after me has been put before me, for he was before me.'"

I indeed am baptizing you in water, unto repentance; but One is coming after me, mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire. His winnowing-fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse the threshing-floor. He will store his wheat in the granary, but will burn up the chaff in unquenchable fire."

whether perhaps he were the Christ, John answered, saying to all of them. "I indeed am baptizing you in water, but One is coming after me, mightier than I, whose shoe-latchet I am not worthy to unloose. He shall baptize you in the Holy Ghost and in fire. He has his fan in his hand to cleanse his threshing-floor thoroughly, and to gather the wheat into his storehouse, but the chaff will he burn with unquenchable fire."

"I indeed am baptizing in water," John said in reply, "but in your midst stands One whom you do not recognize, One who is to come after me, whose sandal-strap I am not worthy to untie." This happened in Bethany, beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. read more.
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said: "Behold, that is God's Lamb, who takes and bears away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, 'After me comes One who has been put before me, for he was before me.' I myself did not recognize him; I only came baptizing in water, in order that he might be openly shown to Israel." John also bore this testimony, saying. "I saw the Spirit like a dove descend from heaven and rest upon him. And I did not recognize him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, 'The one on whom you see the Spirit descending and resting upon him, is he who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.' This I have seen, and I am become a witness to the fact that he is the Son of God." Next day again, John was standing with two of his disciples. After gazing intently on Jesus as he walked about, he said, "Look! that is the Lamb of God!"

John also was baptizing in Aenon, near Salim, because there were many streams there, and people kept coming to receive baptism. (For John had not yet been thrown into prison.) Then some of John's disciples got into a controversy with a Jew in regard to purification; so they came to John and said to him. read more.
"Rabbi, see! The man who was with you on the other side of Jordan, and to whom you yourself have borne testimony, is now baptizing, and everybody is coming to him." In reply John said: "A man cannot obtain anything unless it has been granted to him from heaven. You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, 'I am not the Christ, but have been sent before him.' He who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. So then this joy of mine has now complete fulfilment. He must increase, but I must decrease. "He that comes from above is above all; but one who is of the earth, of the earth he is, and of the earth he speaks. He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears testimony to what he has heard and seen, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever does receive it has set his seal that God is true. For he whom God sent utters the words of God; for God does not give the Spirit sparingly. the Father loves the Son and has committed everything into his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but he who disobeys the Son shall not see life, but he who disobeys the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides upon him."

"Another bears testimony to me, and I know that the testimony which he bears concerning me is valid. "You yourselves sent to John, and he has been and is a witness to the truth.

Many who came to him said, "John did not perform any signs, but everything he said about this man was true."

"And John, when he was finishing his race, repeatedly asked the people. "'Who do you suppose that I am? I am not He. But behold there comes One after me, whose sandal I am not worthy to unfasten.'
