At certain times an angel of the Lord would go down into the pool and stir up the water, and whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water was healed of whatever disease he had. One particular man was there who had been ill for 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?" The sick man answered him, "Sir, I don't have anyone to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I'm trying to get there, someone else steps down ahead of me." Jesus told him, "Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!" The man immediately became well, and he picked up his mat and started walking. Now that day was a Sabbath. So the Jewish leaders told the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat. But he answered them, "The man who made me well told me, "Pick up your mat and walk.'" They asked him, "Who is the man who told you, "Pick it up and walk'?" But the one who had been healed did not know who it was, because Jesus had slipped away from the crowd in that place. Later on, Jesus found him in the Temple and told him, "Look! You have become well. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you." The man went off and told the Jewish leaders that it was Jesus who had made him well.

Then the Jewish leaders began grumbling about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven." They kept saying, "This is Jesus, the son of Joseph, isn't it, whose father and mother we know? So how can he say, "I have come down from heaven'?"

Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death." Then the Jewish leaders told him, "Now we really know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and so did the prophets, but you say, "If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.' You aren't greater than our father Abraham, who died, are you? The prophets also died. Who are you making yourself out to be?" Jesus answered, "If I were trying to glorify myself, my glory would mean nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, "He is our God.' You don't know him, but I know him. If I were to say that I don't know him, I would be a liar like you. But I do know him and keep his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day, and he saw it and was glad." Then the Jewish leaders asked him, "You are not even 50 years old, yet you have seen Abraham?" Jesus told them, "Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, before there was an Abraham, I AM!" At this, they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the Temple.

John 9:1-34

As he was walking along, he observed a man who had been blind from birth. His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that caused him to be born blind?"

I must do the work of the one who sent me while it is day. Night is approaching, when no one can work. As long as I'm in the world, I'm the light of the world." After saying this, he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he spread the mud on the man's eyes and told him, "Go and wash in the pool of Siloam" (which is translated "Sent One"). So he went off, washed, and came back seeing. Then the neighbors and those who had previously seen him as a beggar said, "This is the man who used to sit and beg, isn't it?" Some were saying, "It's him," while others were saying, "No, but it's someone like him." But he himself kept saying, "It's me!" So they asked him, "How, then, did you gain your eyesight?" He said, "The man named Jesus made some mud, spread it on my eyes, and told me, "Go to Siloam and wash.' So off I went and washed, and I received my sight." They asked him, "Where is that man?" He said, "I don't know!" So they brought to the Pharisees the man who had once been blind. Now it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the mud and healed his eyes. So the Pharisees also began to ask him how he had gained his sight. He told them, "He put mud on my eyes, then I washed, and now I can see." Some of the Pharisees began to remark, "This man is not from God because he does not keep the Sabbath." But others were saying, "How can a sinful man perform such signs?" And there was a division among them. So they asked the formerly blind man again, "What do you say about him, since it was your eyes he healed?" He said, "He is a prophet." The Jewish leaders did not believe that the man had been blind and had gained sight until they summoned his parents and asked them, "Is this your son, the one you say was born blind? How does he now see?" His parents replied, "We know that this is our son and that he was born blind. But we don't know how it is that he now sees, and we don't know who opened his eyes. Ask him. He is of age and can speak for himself." His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, since the Jewish leaders had already agreed that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be thrown out of the synagogue. That's why his parents said, "He is of age. Ask him." The Jewish leaders summoned the man who had been blind a second time and told him, "Give glory to God! We know that this man is a sinner." But he responded, "I don't know whether he is a sinner or not. The one thing I do know is that I used to be blind and now I can see!" Then they asked him, "What did he do to you? How did he heal your eyes?" He answered them, "I've already told you, but you didn't listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You don't want to become his disciples, too, do you?" At this, they turned on him in fury and said, "You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses! We know that God has spoken to Moses, but we do not know where this fellow comes from." The man answered them, "This is an amazing thing! You don't know where he comes from, yet he healed my eyes. We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but he does listen to anyone who worships him and does his will. Ever since creation it has never been heard that anyone healed the eyes of a man who was born blind. If this man were not from God, he couldn't do anything like that." They asked him, "You were born a sinner and you are trying to instruct us?" And they threw him out.

John 10:22-33

Now Hanukkah was taking place in Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was walking around in the Temple inside the open porch of Solomon. So the Jewish leaders surrounded him and quizzed him, "How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you're the Messiah, tell us so plainly."read more.
Jesus answered them, "I have told you, but you don't believe it. The actions that I do in my Father's name testify on my behalf, but you don't believe, because you don't belong to my sheep. My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, they'll never be lost, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. What my Father has given me is more important than anything, and no one can snatch it from the Father's hand. I and the Father are one." Again the Jewish leaders picked up stones to stone him to death. Jesus replied to them, "I've shown you many good actions from my Father. For which of them are you going to stone me?" The Jewish leaders answered him, "We are not going to stone you for a good action, but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, are making yourself God!"

John 18:12-14

Then they spit on him and took the stick and hit him repeatedly on his head. When they had finished making fun of him, they stripped him of the robe, put his own clothes back on him, and led him away to crucify him.

Mark 15:16-20

The soldiers led Jesus into the courtyard of the palace (that is, the governor's headquarters) and called out the whole guard.

Then Pilate had Jesus taken away and whipped. The soldiers twisted some thorns into a victor's crown, put it on his head, and threw a purple robe on him. They kept coming up to him and saying, "Long live the king of the Jews!" Then they began to slap him on the face.read more.
Pilate went outside again and told the Jews, "Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him." Then Jesus came outside, wearing the victor's crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate told them, "Here is the man!" When the high priests and the officials saw him, they shouted, "Crucify him! Crucify him!" Pilate told them, "You take him and crucify him. I find no basis for a charge against him."

Mark 15:6-14

He had been with the insurgents who had committed murder during the rebellion. So the crowd came and began to request that Pilate do for them what he always did. read more.
Pilate answered them, "Do you want me to release the king of the Jews for you?" because he knew that the high priests had handed him over due to jealousy. But the high priests stirred up the crowd to get him to release Barabbas for them instead. So Pilate asked them again, "Then what should I do with the man you call "the King of the Jews'?" "Crucify him!" they shouted back. "Why?" Pilate asked them. "What has he done wrong?" But they shouted even louder, "Crucify him!"

John 18:38-40

Pilate asked him, "What is "truth'?" and then he went out to the Jewish leaders again and told them, "I find no basis for a charge against him. But you have a custom that I release one person for you at Passover. Do you want me to release for you the king of the Jews?" At this, they shouted out again, "Not this fellow, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a revolutionary.

Acts 11:19
