He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bride-groom who stands and hears him greatly rejoices because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy, therefore, has been made full. He must increase, but I must decrease. He That cometh from above is above all; he that is of the earth is of the earth, and speaks of the earth; He that cometh from Heaven is above all. What He hath seen, and what He heard, of this He bears testimony; and no man receives His testimony. He that received His testimony did set his seal to it, that God is true. 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. He that believes on the Son has eternal life; but he that disbelieves the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

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 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;

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.

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;'"

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.

But Peter and the apostles, answering, said, "It is proper to obey God rather than men.

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.

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. For He received from God the Father honor and glory, when such a voice was borne to Him from the Excellent Glory, "This is My Son, the Beloved, in Whom I took delight"; and this voice we heard borne from Heaven, when we were with Him in the holy mount.

And Peter, answering, said to Jesus," Lord, it is good that we are here. If Thou wilt, I will make here three tents??ne for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." While he was yet speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And, behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I delighted; hear Him."

And Peter, answering, says to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good that we are here; and let us make three tents; one for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah;" for he knew not what to answer, for they became much afraid. And there came a cloud overshadowing them; and there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is My Son, the Beloved; hear ye Him."

And it came to pass, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good that we are here; and let us make three tents; one for Thee, one for Moses, and one for Elijah;" not knowing what he was saying. Now, while he was saying these things, there came a cloud, and it was overshadowing them; and they feared, as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is My Son, the Chosen; hear ye Him."

The Pharisees, therefore, said to Him, "Thou testifiest concerning Thyself; Thy testimony is not true." Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I do testify concerning Myself, My testimony is true; because I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye know not whence I came, or whither I go. Ye judge according to the flesh; I judge no man. read more.
But, even if I judge, My judgment is true; because I am not alone, but I and the Father Who sent Me. And in your law also it has been written, 'The testimony of two men is true.' I am One Who testify concerning Myself; and the Father, Who sent Me, testifieth concerning Me."

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. I and the Father are One." The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, "Many good works did I show you from My Father; for which of those works do ye stone Me?" The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we stone Thee not, but for blasphemy, and because, Thou, being a Man, makest Thyself God!" 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? 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."

And Jesus answereth them, saying, "The hour has come, that the Son of Man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say to you, unless the grain of wheat, having fallen into the ground, dies, it abides alone; but, if it dies, it bears much fruit, He who loves his soul loses it; and he who hates his soul in this world will keep it unto life eternal. read more.
If any one serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am there will also My servant be. If anyone serve Me, him will My Father honor. Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour. But for this cause came I to this hour. Father, glorify Thy Name!" There came, therefore, a voice out of Heaven, "I both glorified it, and will glorify it again." The multitude, therefore, who stood by and heard it, said that it had thundered; others said, "An angel has spoken to Him." Jesus answered and said, "This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes.

And who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He Who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ; not in the water only, but in the water and in the blood. And the Spirit is He Who beareth witness, because the Spirit is the Truth: read more.
because there are Three Who bear witness; the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and the Three agree in one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; because this is the testimony of God, that He hath testified concerning His Son.


that all may honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father Who sent Him. "Verily, verily, I say to you, He that hears My word, and believes Him Who sent Me, has eternal life, and comes not into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. Verily, verily, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those having heard shall live. read more.
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. If I testify concerning Myself, My testimony is not true. There is Another Who testifieth concerning Me; and I know that the testimony which He testifieth concerning Me is true. 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. 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;
