And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem, whom also they killed, having hung on a tree.

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

And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. So that thou are no longer a bondman but a son, and if a son, then an heir through Christ.

O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom have thou made them all. The earth is full of thy riches. Yonder is the sea, great and wide, in which are innumerable creeping things, both small and great beasts. There go the ships. There is leviathan, whom thou have formed to play in it. read more.
These all wait for thee, that thou may give them their food in due season. Thou give to them, they gather. Thou open thy hand, they are satisfied with good. Thou hide thy face, they are troubled. Thou take away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Thou send forth thy Spirit, they are created, and thou renew the face of the ground.

Jesus answered and said to him, If any man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make a dwelling with him. He who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that ye hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent me. I have spoken these things to you while remaining with you. read more.
But the helper, the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

But when the helper comes whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me. And ye also testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

I have spoken these things to you, so that ye may not be caused to stumble. They will make you excommunicated from the synagogues. But the hour comes that every man who kills you will presume to be offering service to God. And they will do these things, because they have not known the Father nor me. read more.
But I have told you these things, so that when the hour comes, ye may remember that I told you of them. But I did not tell you these things from the beginning because I was with you. But now I go to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, Where do thou go? But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth, it is expedient for you that I depart, for if I do not depart, the helper will not come to you. But whenever I go, I will send him to you.



I am the TRUE grapevine, and my Father is the farmer. Every branch in me not bearing fruit, he removes it. And every branch that bears fruit, he prunes it, so that it may bear more fruit. Now ye are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. read more.
Dwell in me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it dwells in the grapevine, so neither ye, if ye do not dwell in me. I am the grapevine, ye are the branches. He who dwells in me, and I in him, this man bears much fruit, because without me ye can do nothing. If any man does not dwell in me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and are burned. If ye dwell in me, and my sayings dwell in you, ye will ask whatever ye may want, and it will be done to you. By this my Father is glorified, that ye may bear much fruit, and ye will become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Dwell ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye will dwell in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments, and dwell in his love. These things I have spoken to you that my joy may dwell in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that ye love each other, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that some man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do as many things as I command you. I no longer call you bondmen, because the bondman does not know what his lord does. But I have called you friends, because all things that I heard from my Father, I made known to you. Ye did not choose out me, but I chose out you, and appointed you, so that ye should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit may remain, so that anything whatever ye may ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, so that ye may love each other. If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own, but because ye are not of the world (instead I chose you out of the world), because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, A bondman is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you because of my name, because they have not known him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would not have had sin, but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But, that the word that is written in their law may be fulfilled, They hated me without cause. But when the helper comes whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me. And ye also testify, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye murdered, having hung on a tree. God exalted this man with his right hand, a Pathfinder and a Savior to give repentance to Israel and remission of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.

And now behold, I, bound in the spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me in it, except that the Holy Spirit testifies from city to city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me.

For this reason I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles, since indeed ye heard of the administration of the grace of God, which was given to me for you, that according to revelation he made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. read more.
With which reading ye can recognize my understanding in the mystery of the Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by Spirit to his holy apostles and prophets.

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, after indeed foretelling,

And who is he who overcomes the world, if not he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth. Because those who testify are three:


This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And it is the Spirit that testifies, because the Spirit is truth.

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, so that he may dwell with you into the age, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it does not see nor know it. But ye know it, because it dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphaned. I am coming to you. read more.
Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more, but ye see me. Because I live, ye will also live.

And having come, he will convict the world about sin, and about justice, and about judgment. About sin because they truly did not believe in me, and about justice because I go to the Father, and ye see me no more, and about judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. However when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak from himself, but as many things as he may hear, he will speak. And he will report to you the things that are coming.

And the Lord spoke to Paul by a vision at night, Fear not, but speak, and be not silent, because I am with thee, and no man will lay upon thee to harm thee, because many people are for me in this city.

And he said, The God of our fathers appointed thee to know his will, and to see the Righteous man, and to hear a voice from his mouth, because thou will be a witness for him to all men of the things that thou have seen and heard.
