The Book of John
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any
thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness
comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the
Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of
9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that
cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and
the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to
become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the
flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was
he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he
was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth
came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten
Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent
priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am
not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he
saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give
an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the
wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet
24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest
thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that
26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but
there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me,
whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan,
where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and
saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which
is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest
to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit
descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with
water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit
descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold
the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they
38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith
unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say,
being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw
where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth
40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed
him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto
him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the
42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him,
he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas,
which is by interpretation, A stone.
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee,
and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have
found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of
Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing
come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him,
Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus
answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast
under the fig tree, I saw thee.
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art
the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto
thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see
greater things than these.
51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and
descending upon the Son of man.
1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of
Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith
unto him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with
thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith
unto you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after
the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water.
And they filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the
governor of the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that
was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew
the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set
forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse:
but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of
Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his
mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not
13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep
and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove
them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out
the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things
hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The
zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign
shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple,
and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple
in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his
disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed
the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the
feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he
24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he
knew all men,
25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he
knew what was in man.
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a
ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him,
Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do
these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he
is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except
a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which
is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the
sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth:
so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of
Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do
know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not,
how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came
down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that
believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the
name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into
the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither
cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his
deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into
the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim,
because there was much water there: and they came, and were
24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 Then there arose a question between some of John's
disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he
that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the
same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing,
except it be given him from heaven.
28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not
the Christ, but that I am sent before him.
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the
friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth
greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of
the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from
heaven is above all.
32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth;
and no man receiveth his testimony.
33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his
seal that God is true.
34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things
into his hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and
he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God
abideth on him.
1 When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard
that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called
Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being
wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus
saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that
thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for
the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the
gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou
wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to
draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us
the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of
this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give
him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in
him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that
I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus
said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now
hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say,
that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour
cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem,
worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship:
for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true
worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the
Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh,
which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he
talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest
thou with her?
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into
the city, and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I
did: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto
31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying,
32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know
33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any
man brought him ought to eat?
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him
that sent me, and to finish his work.
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh
harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the
fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth
fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may
37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour:
other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him
for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I
40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they
besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two
41 And many more believed because of his own word;
42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of
thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed
the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into
44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no
honour in his own country.
45 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans
received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the
feast: for they also went unto the feast.
46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made
the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at
47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into
Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and
heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and
wonders, ye will not believe.
49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my
50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And
the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his
51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and
told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
52 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to
amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever
53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the
which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his
54 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when
he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went
up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool,
which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of
blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the
pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of
the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity
thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a
long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when
the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming,
another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his
bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is
the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said
unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto
thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus
had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said
unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing
come unto thee.
15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus,
which had made him whole.
16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought
to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto,
and I work.
18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because
he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father,
making himself equal with God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the
Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all
things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these,
that ye may marvel.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth
them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all
judgment unto the Son:
23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour
the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which
hath sent him.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my
word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall
not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and
now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they
that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he
given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also,
because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the
which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto
the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge:
and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of
the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not
32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know
that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the
34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things
I say, that ye might be saved.
35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were
willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the
works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do,
bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne
witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he
hath sent, him ye believe not.
39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have
eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have
41 I receive not honour from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:
if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of
another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father:
there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me;
for he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye
believe my words?
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee,
which is the sea of Tiberias.
2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his
miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with
4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great
company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread,
that these may eat?
6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what
he would do.
7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is
not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother,
saith unto him,
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and
two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was
much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given
thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that
were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples,
Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled
twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which
remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that
Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and
take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down
unto the sea,
17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward
Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty
furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the
ship: and they were afraid.
20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and
immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the
other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that
one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his
disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto
the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there,
neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum,
seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the
sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did
eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that
meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give
unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we
might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of
God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou
then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is
written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you
the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from
heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he
that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and
37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him
that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,
but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that
of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it
up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every
one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life:
and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am
the bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph,
whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath
sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all
taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of
the Father, cometh unto me.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is
of God, he hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me
hath everlasting life.
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a
man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if
any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I
will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How
can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye
have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath
eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood,
dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the
Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as
your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread
shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard
this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured
at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where
he was before?
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth
nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus
knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should
65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can
come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and
walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we
go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ,
the Son of the living God.
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and
one of you is a devil?
71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it
was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would
not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
2 Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.
3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and
go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou
4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and
he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew
thyself to the world.
5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but
your time is alway ready.
7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I
testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this
feast: for my time is not yet full come.
9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still
10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also
up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where
12 And there was much murmuring among the people
concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he
deceiveth the people.
13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the
14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the
temple, and taught.
15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man
letters, having never learned?
16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine,
but his that sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the
doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but
he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no
unrighteousness is in him.
19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you
keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who
goeth about to kill thee?
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one
work, and ye all marvel.
22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not
because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day
circumcise a man.
23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that
the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have
made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge
25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he,
whom they seek to kill?
26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto
him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
27 Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ
cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye
both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he
that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent
30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on
him, because his hour was not yet come.
31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When
Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath
32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such
things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent
officers to take him.
33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with
you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I
am, thither ye cannot come.
35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he
go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the
Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall
seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus
stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that
believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;
because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this
saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall
Christ come out of Galilee?
42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the
seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
43 So there was a division among the people because of
44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid
hands on him.
45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and
Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this
47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also
48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on
49 But this people who knoweth not the law are
50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by
night, being one of them,)
51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and
know what he doeth?
52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of
Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
53 And every man went unto his own house.
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple,
and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman
taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in
adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be
stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to
accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the
ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself,
and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a
stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own
conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the
last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the
woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no
man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the
light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest
record of thyself; thy record is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record
of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I
go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not
alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of
two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father
that sent me beareth witness of me.
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus
answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should
have known my Father also.
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught
in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet
21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye
shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot
22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he
saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from
above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your
sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith
unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he
that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have
heard of him.
27 They understood not that he spake to them of the
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the
Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of
myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not
left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If
ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make
33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never
in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but
the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be
37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill
me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye
do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the
works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you
the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him,
We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would
love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of
myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye
cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in
the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he
speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the
truth, why do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore
hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not
well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my
Father, and ye do dishonour me.
50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that
seeketh and judgeth.
51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my
saying, he shall never see death.
52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast
a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep
my saying, he shall never taste of death.
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is
dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is
nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is
55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I
should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know
him, and keep his saying.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw
it, and was glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty
years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Before Abraham was, I am.
59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid
himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and
so passed by.
1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind
from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did
sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his
parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is
day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the
6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made
clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the
7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam,
(which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed,
and came seeing.
8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen
him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but
he said, I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes
11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made
clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam,
and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay,
and opened his eyes.
15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had
received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I
washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not
of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man
that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of
him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he
had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of
him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye
say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this
is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who
hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the
Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he
was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said
unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I
know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how
opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did
not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple;
but we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow,
we know not from whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a
marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath
opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any
man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man
opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of God, he could do
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether
born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had
found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might
believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and
it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world,
that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made
40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard
these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have
no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by
the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a
thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before
them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from
him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood
not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers:
but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be
saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill,
and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his
life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose
own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and
fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and
careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:
and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be
one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my
life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.
I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This
commandment have I received of my Father.
19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for
20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why
hear ye him?
21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a
devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication,
and it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's
24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him,
How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not:
the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as
I said unto you.
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and
no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30 I and my Father are one.
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you
from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone
thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I
said, Ye are gods?
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came,
and the scripture cannot be broken;
36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and
sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of
37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me
38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the
works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in
39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped
out of their hand,
40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where
John at first baptized; and there he abode.
41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no
miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
42 And many believed on him there.
1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany,
the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment,
and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord,
behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not
unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be
5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and
6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode
two days still in the same place where he was.
7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go
into Judaea again.
8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late
sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day?
If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light
of this world.
10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because
there is no light in him.
11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto
them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of
12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do
13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that
he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is
15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to
the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his
fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the
grave four days already.
18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen
19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to
comfort them concerning their brother.
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was
coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been
here, my brother had not died.
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of
God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again
in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the
life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never
die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art
the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called
Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for
29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came
30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in
that place where Martha met him.
31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and
comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out,
followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him,
she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here,
my brother had not died.
33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also
weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was
34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him,
Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened
the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the
grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister
of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for
he hath been dead four days.
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if
thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the
dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank
thee that thou hast heard me.
42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of
the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast
43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud
voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot
with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith
unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen
the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and
told them what things Jesus had done.
47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a
council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him:
and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest
that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man
should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest
that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should
gather together in one the children of God that were scattered
53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for
to put him to death.
54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews;
but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called
Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went
out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify
56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves,
as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the
57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given
a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it,
that they might take him.
1 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany,
where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the
2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but
Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very
costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair:
and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's
son, which should betray him,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence,
and given to the poor?
6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but
because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put
7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my
burying hath she kept this.
8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not
9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was
there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see
Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put
Lazarus also to death;
11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went
away, and believed on Jesus.
12 On the next day much people that were come to the
feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet
him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the
name of the Lord.
14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon;
as it is written,
15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh,
sitting on an ass's colt.
16 These things understood not his disciples at the first:
but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were
written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
17 The people therefore that was with him when he called
Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare
18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they
heard that he had done this miracle.
19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive
ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up
to worship at the feast:
21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of
Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see
22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and
Philip tell Jesus.
23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that
the Son of man should be glorified.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat
fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth
forth much fruit.
25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that
hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am,
there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father
27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father,
save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from
heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it
29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said
that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of
me, but for your sakes.
31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince
of this world be cast out.
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all
men unto me.
33 This he said, signifying what death he should
34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law
that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be
lifted up? who is this Son of man?
35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the
light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you:
for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may
be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did
hide himself from them.
37 But though he had done so many miracles before them,
yet they believed not on him:
38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be
fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom
hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart;
that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart,
and be converted, and I should heal them.
41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and
spake of him.
42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed
on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they
should be put out of the synagogue:
43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise
44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me,
believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever
believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge
him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath
one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge
him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which
sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I
1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew
that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the
Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto
2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into
the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into
his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and
took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to
wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was
6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him,
Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest
not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet.
Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but
also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save
to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not
11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he,
Ye are not all clean.
12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his
garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have
done to you?
13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet;
ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I
have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not
greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do
18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but
that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath
lifted up his heel against me.
19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to
pass, ye may believe that I am he.
20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth
whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him
that sent me.
21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit,
and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you
shall betray me.
22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of
whom he spake.
23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his
disciples, whom Jesus loved.
24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should
ask who it should be of whom he spake.
25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord,
who is it?
26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop,
when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas
Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said
Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake
this unto him.
29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag,
that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of
against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
30 He then having received the sop went immediately out:
and it was night.
31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the
Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
32 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him
in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye
shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come;
so now I say to you.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one
another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if
ye have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou?
Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou
shalt follow me afterwards.
37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee
now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my
sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou
hast denied me thrice.
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,
believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not
so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come
again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou
goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you,
and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the
Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the
Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but
the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in
me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on
me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these
shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do,
that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him;
for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but
ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and
ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it
is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and
I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it
that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he
will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto
him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the
word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not
as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come
again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go
unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that,
when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince
of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and
as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh
away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may
bring forth more fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye
abide in me.
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in
me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye
can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,
and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and
they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall
ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;
so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love;
even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might
remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I
have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down
his life for his friends.
14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant
knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all
things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit
should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he
may give it you.
17 These things I command you, that ye love one
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before
it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:
but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the
world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is
not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also
persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my
name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not
had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other
man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both
me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be
fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto
you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the
Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been
with me from the beginning.
1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not
2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time
cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God
3 And these things will they do unto you, because they
have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But these things have I told you, that when the time
shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I
said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you
asketh me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow
hath filled your heart.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for
you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto
you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin,
and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see
me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot
bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will
guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but
whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things
14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and
shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore
said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a
little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What
is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me:
and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the
18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A
little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and
said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little
while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall
20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and
lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your
sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her
hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she
remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you
again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily,
verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he
will give it you.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye
shall receive, that your joy may be full.
25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but
the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I
shall shew you plainly of the Father.
26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto
you, that I will pray the Father for you:
27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have
loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the
world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou
plainly, and speakest no proverb.
30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and
needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou
camest forth from God.
31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye
shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and
yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye
might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the world.
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to
heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son
also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he
should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the
only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the
work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self
with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou
gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and
they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast
given me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest
me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out
from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them
which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am
glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the
world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those
whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy
name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but
the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the
world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated
them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the
world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I
also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also
might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which
shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me,
and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe
that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
that they may be one, even as we are one:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made
perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and
hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me,
be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast
given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but
I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will
declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and
I in them.
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with
his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he
entered, and his disciples.
2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for
Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers
from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and
torches and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come
upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto
them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they
went backward, and fell to the ground.
7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said,
Jesus of Nazareth.
8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if
therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of
them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the
high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was
11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the
sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink
12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews
took Jesus, and bound him,
13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in
law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews,
that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another
disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with
Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that
other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her
that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter,
Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.
18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made
a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter
stood with them, and warmed himself.
19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and
of his doctrine.
20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever
taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always
resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I
have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which
stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou
the high priest so?
23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness
of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high
25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said
therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it,
and said, I am not.
26 One of the servants of the high priest, being his
kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden
27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock
28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of
judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment
hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the
29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What
accusation bring ye against this man?
30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a
malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him
according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful
for us to put any man to death:
32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he
spake, signifying what death he should die.
33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and
called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself,
or did others tell it thee of me?
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the
chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my
kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should
not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then?
Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and
for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the
truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had
said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in
him no fault at all.
39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you
one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of
40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but
Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged
2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it
on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him
with their hands.
4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them,
Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in
5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and
the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him,
they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them,
Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he
ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more
9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto
Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me?
knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all
against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that
delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but
the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's
friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought
Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called
the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about
the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him,
crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief
priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be
crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called
the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on
either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And
the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place
where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in
Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate,
Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the
22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took
his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his
coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend
it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be
fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my
vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and
his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple
standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And
from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they
filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said,
It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation,
that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for
that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might
be broken, and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the
first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead
already, they brake not his legs:
34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side,
and forthwith came there out blood and water.
35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true:
and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should
be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on
him whom they pierced.
38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple
of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might
take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore,
and took the body of Jesus.
39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came
to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an
hundred pound weight.
40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen
clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a
garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet
42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews'
preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early,
when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away
from the sepulchre.
2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the
other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken
away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and
came to the sepulchre.
4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did
outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen
clothes lying; yet went he not in.
6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the
sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with
the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first
to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must
rise again from the dead.
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own
11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as
she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the
head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She
saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not
where they have laid him.
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back,
and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom
seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir,
if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will
take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and
saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet
ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend
unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had
seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of
the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for
fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them,
Peace be unto you.
20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands
and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my
Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and
saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto
them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not
with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have
seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the
print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and
thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within,
and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in
the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and
behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side:
and be not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my
29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen
me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of
his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus
is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life
through his name.
1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the
disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called
Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and
two other of his disciples.
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say
unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship
immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the
shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat?
They answered him, No.
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of
the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not
able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto
Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he
girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself
into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they
were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the
net with fishes.
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire
of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have
11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of
great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so
many, yet was not the net broken.
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the
disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them,
and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to
his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him,
Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of
Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I
love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas,
lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time,
Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young,
thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou
shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird
thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should
glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow
20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom
Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and
said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall
this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I
come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that
that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not
die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to
24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things,
and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did,
the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the
world itself could not contain the books that should be written.
