John (v 21:24), who called himself, "the disciple that Jesus loved", one of the 12 disciples, fisherman by trade and younger brother to James. The first three gospel accounts, (Matthew, Mark, Luke) are considered to be synoptic gospels. (meaning: Presenting a summary or general view or taking the same common view). The gospel of John stands out because of the difference in form and substance. It is as if the gospel writer is writing with a focus of who Jesus Christ is as the Son of God, rather than simply what He did during His earthly ministry here on earth. John's gospel proclaims Jesus Christ as the Son of God written to the whole world.
twenty-one chapters

Verse by verse, account of the book of John.

Gospel of John: chapter 1

1In the very beginning, (before the earth was formed), was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. 2The Word was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through Him and without Him nothing seen or unseen was made. 4In Him was life and that life was the source of light in men. 5That light shined in the darkness, but the darkness did not comprehend it nor could overtake it.

6There was a man sent from God his name was John the Baptist. 7This man came as a witness concerning the Christ, that all might come to believe in Him. 8John was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of the Christ. 9Christ is the true Light, whom gives light to every man in this world. 10Though Christ came into this world and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. 11And when the Christ came to His own, His own within the world did not receive Him.

12But to those who did receive Him He gave them the right and privilege to become sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. 13Whom were born not of blood or of the desires of the flesh or of the will of natural man, but born of God. 14For the Word, filled with grace and truth became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory, of the only begotten of the Father, (Jesus Christ).

15John testified of the Christ, saying; He that comes after me, is preferred over me, for He was before me. 16We have all received of His fullness, together with grace upon grace. 17For the law came through Moses, but grace and truth has now come by Jesus Christ. 18For no man has ever seen God, but now the only begotten Son has made the Father known to us.

The ministry of John the Baptist,   Matthew 3:1Mark 1:2Luke 3:3.

19When the Jews heard that John was baptizing in the desert, they sent priests from Jerusalem to ask him who he was? 20And he replied; I am not the Christ. 21They then asked him if he was Elijah or a prophet? And he denied this. 22They then said; tell us who you are, so we can give an answer to them who have sent us. 23John replied; I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare and make straight the way of the Lord, as was said by the prophet Isaiah, Isaiah 40:3.

24Now those who had been sent to John were from the Pharisees. 25Then they asked him, why do you baptize, if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the prophet? 26John answered; I baptize with water, but One is among you that you do not know of. 27He that comes after me is preferred rather than me, for I am not worthy even to become His servant. 28These things were done as John was baptizing in Bethany beyond the Jordan river.

29The very next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and he spoke out; Behold the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world. 30This is the Man, that I said comes after me and is preferred rather than me, for He was before me. 31And I knew Him not, but now He shall be revealed to Israel, for I came baptizing to prepare the way for Him. 32And John testified of Him, saying; I saw the Spirit descending from heaven as a dove and it remained on Him. 33I did not know the One who sent me to baptize with water, but upon Him whom I saw the Spirit descending and remaining on, He is the One who will baptizes with the Holy Spirit. 34And I am an eye witness that He is the Son of God.

35The very next day, John was standing with two of his disciples. 36And as Jesus walked by, John said; Behold the Lamb of God! 37Upon hearing this John's two disciples, followed Jesus. 38When Jesus saw them following Him, He turned and said to them; What are you seeking? And they replied; Teacher, where are You staying? 39Jesus said to them; Come and see. So they came and stayed with Him that day, for it was about 4:00pm. 40Andrew, Simon-Peter's brother was one of the two disciples of John, (NOTE: later to be counted as one of the twelve disciples). 41Andrew, quickly found his brother Simon-Peter and told him that, we have found the Messiah, the Christ. 42After Andrew had brought Simon-Peter to Jesus, When Jesus saw Simon, He said to him; Simon, you shall be called Cephas, (which means: a stone).

43The next day, Jesus went into Galilee and seeing Philip, He said to him; Follow Me. 44Now Philip was also from Bethsaida, the same city that Andrew and Peter were from. 45Philip then found Nathanael and told him that they had found the One of whom Moses and the prophets wrote about, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 46And Nathanael replied, can any good come out of Nazareth? To which Philip replied, come and see. 47Now when Jesus saw Nathanael coming, He said; An Israelite, in whom there is no deceit. 48Nathanael questioned, how Jesus knew him? And Jesus answered; Before Philip called you, I saw you sitting under the fig tree. 49To this Nathanael replied; Rabbi, you are the Son of God, the King of Israel. 50Jesus replied; Because I told you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see much greater things than these. 51Truly I tell you, you shall see heaven open up and angels of God ascending on the Son of Man.

Gospel of John: chapter 2
Jesus turns the water into wine.

1On the third day, there was a wedding within Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there. 2Also Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. 3Now when they had run out of wine, the mother of Jesus informed Him of this. 4To which Jesus replied; Woman, what has this to do with Me? My hour has not yet come. 5His mother then told the servants of the feast, to do whatever, He tells you.

6Now there were six water pots, according to the religious customs of the Jews, each capable of holding twenty to thirty gallons. 7Jesus instructed the servants to; Fill the water pots up with water and the servants filled the pots up to the brim. 8He then told them to; Draw some out from the pots and bring it to the host of the feast. 9When the host of the feast had tasted of the water that had been made into wine, for he did not know where the wine had come from, he called the bride groom over. 10Saying to him; every man brings out the good wine at the beginning of the feast and after the guests have well drunk he brings out the inferior wine. But, you have kept the good wine for last.

11This was the start of the miracles that Jesus did in Galilee, revealing His glory. Then His disciples believed on Him. 12After this Jesus went down to Capernaum, with His mother, brothers and His disciples and they stayed there a few days.

13Now the Jewish Passover was nearing and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14And He found in the temple those who sold oxen, sheep and doves and people who changed money into the proper religious currency. 15And making a whip of cords, He drove the people and the animals out of the temple, pouring out the money from the money changers and turning over the tables. 16Saying to them; Take your things and go, do not turn My Fathers house into a house of merchandise. 17And His disciples remembered that it was written; Zeal for My Father's house has consumed Me, Psalm 69:9.

18Seeing these things, the Jews asked Him; what sign He would show them, since You have done this? 19Jesus replied to them; Destroy this Temple and in three days I will raise it up. 20The Jews then replied, it has taken us forty-six years to build this temple and You say You can raise it up in three days? 21But Jesus was speaking of the Temple of His body. 22And when Jesus was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered this and they further believed the scriptures and the Words Jesus had spoken to them.

23Now during the Passover Feast, when Jesus was in Jerusalem, many believed on His name when they saw the miracles that He did. 24But Jesus did not entrust Himself to them because He knew all men. 25Nor did He need any man to testify of Him, for He knew what was in men.

Gospel of John: chapter 3

1Now there was a certain man of the Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews named Nicodemus. 2who came to Jesus at night. Saying to Him; Rabbi, we know that You are a Teacher that has come from God, for no man can do the miracles that You do, unless God is with him. 3Jesus said; Truly, I tell you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus replied; How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter into His mother's womb a second time? 5Jesus answered; Truly, I tell you, unless a man be born of water, (of a natural birth) and of the Spirit, (the new birth), he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Do not marvel at this, that one must be born again. 8Just as the wind blows where it wills and you hear it through the trees, but still do not know where it came from or where it is going. So is it also with everyone that is born of the Spirit.

9To this Nicodemus replied; How can this be? 10Jesus answered; You are a teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand such things? 11I speak of only what I know and have seen and yet you receive not My witness. 12If I tell you of earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you of heavenly things? 13For no one has ever seen heaven, except the Son of Man who has come down from heaven. 14Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up. 15So that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 16For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that all who believe on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world might be saved, through Him. 18Whomever believes on Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already. 19And the condemnation is that the Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness rather than the Light, because their deeds were evil. 20For everyone who does evil hates the Light, nor do they seek the Light, lest their deeds be exposed. 21But he who practices truth comes to the Light so that his works may be revealed, that they are according to God.

22After this, Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea and they were baptizing there. 23Now John the Baptist was also baptizing nearby, because there was much water there and people were coming to them. 24For John had not yet been put into prison.

25Then there was a question between some of the Jews and John's disciples about ceremonial cleansing. 26The Jews reported to John that Jesus, that you gave testimony of, (as the Son of God, verse 1:34), is baptizing beyond the Jordan river and all men are coming to Him. 27John answered and said; A man can receive only what has been given to him from heaven. 28You, yourself have heard me say that I am not the Christ, but I have been sent to go before Him. 29I am not the bridegroom but as a friend of the bridegroom, I take joy in the rejoicing I hear around me because of the bridegroom's voice and thus my joy is now complete. 30He must now increase and I must decrease. 31For He that comes from heaven is far above us all, but he that is of the earth is earthy and speaks of earthy things. 32However, the heavenly things that He has seen and heard, no man receives. 33But he who does receive His Words, has declared within himself that God is true. 34And the Son whom God has sent speaks the Words of God, for God does not give the Spirit sparingly but rather in abundance. 35For the Father loves the Son and has entrusted all things into His hand. 36He that believes on the Son has everlasting life, but he that does not believe on the Son shall not see life, rather the wrath of God abides on him.

Gospel of John: chapter 4

1When Jesus was aware that the Pharisees had been informed that He was baptizing more people that John the Baptist. 2Even though, (Jesus Himself did not baptize, but rather His disciples). 3He left Judea and went into Galilee. 4But it was necessary for Him to go through Samaria. 5He then came into a city called Sychar. This was near the parcel of land that Jacob gave to his son Joseph, Genesis 48:22. 6Jacob's well was in that area of land and Jesus being tired from His journey, sat down by the well, for it was about twelve noon.

7Then came a woman to draw water and Jesus said to her; Give Me a drink. 8For His disciples had gone into the town to buy food. 9The woman replied; Why do You, being a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan woman, for a drink? Since the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10Jesus answered; If you knew of God's gifts and who it is that speaks to you, you would ask of Him and He would have given to you living water. 11She then said to Him; Sir, You have no bucket to draw with and the well is deep, where will you get this living water? 12Are You greater than our father Jacob, who built the well and drank from it himself? 13And Jesus said; Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again. 14But he that drinks of the water that I give him shall never thirst again. This water shall become within him as a well springing up unto everlasting life. 15The woman then said to Him; Sir, give me this water, so that I might not thirst, nor come to this well to draw water. 16Jesus said to her; Go call your husband and come back here. 17And she answered; I have no husband. Jesus said to her; You have spoken the truth. 18For you have had five husbands and the man you are now living with, he is not your husband.

19She replied, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but the Jews say Jerusalem is the place where we should worship. 21Jesus answered; Woman, I tell you truly, a time is coming when you shall no longer worship the Father from this mountain or from Jerusalem. 22You Samaritans worship what you do not comprehend, but the Jews know what we worship, for salvation comes from the Jews. 23The hour will soon come and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24For God is a Spirit and those who worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth. 25The woman said; I know that the Messiah called the Christ is coming and when He comes, He will tell us of all things. 26Jesus, said to her; I who speak to you, am He.

27Right then His disciples came back and they were astonished that He was talking with a woman, yet not one of them questioned Him as to why He was talking with her. 28The woman then left her water jug, went into the city and said to the men of that city. 29Come see a Man that told me all that I have done; is this not the Christ? 30So the people of that city came to Him.

31Meanwhile, His disciples urged Him to eat something. 32But Jesus said to them; I have meat to eat that you do not know of. 33Upon hearing this, the disciples questioned among themselves, whether someone had brought Him some food to eat? 34Jesus knowing this, said to them; My food, is to do the will of the Father, who sent Me and to finish His work. 35Do you not say, I have yet four more months until the harvest, but I say to you, look and observe the fields are ripe for harvest. 36And he who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit unto eternal life, that both he who sows and he that reaps may rejoice together. 37This is a true saying, One sows and another reaps. 38I sent you to reap that which you put forth no labor, for others labored and you have entered into their labors.

39Many of the Samaritans then believed on Him that day, because of the woman's testimony. 40The Samaritans then asked Him to remain with them and He stayed with them two days. 41And many came to believe because of the Word that He spoke. 42Then they said to the woman, now we believe not because of your own testimony, but because we have heard Him ourselves and now we know that He is the Christ, the Savor of the world.

43After two days, Jesus departed for Galilee. 44Testifying Himself that a prophet has no honor in His own country. 45So as He came into Galilee, the people received Him, since they had seen all the things that He had done in Jerusalem at the feast, for they had also been at the feast.

46Jesus again came into Cana, where He had turned the water into wine. Now there was a nobleman whose son was sick in Capernaum. 47When the father had heard that Jesus had come into Galilee, he begged Him to come to Capernaum and heal his son, for his son was at the point of death.

48Jesus said to the man; Unless you see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe. 49But the nobleman pleaded with Him and said; Sir, come down before my child dies. 50Jesus said to him; Go your way, your son lives. And the man believed the Word Jesus had spoken to him and went his way. 51And as the man was going back to his home, his servant met him on the road and told him that his son was healed. 52When the father inquired as to the hour his son got better, they said to him; Yesterday at 1:00pm. 53The father then knew his son was healed at the very hour that Jesus said; Your son lives. Then not only did the father believe, but his whole household also believed. 54This was the second miracle that Jesus did in Galilee.

Gospel of John: chapter 5

1After this Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a Jewish feast. 2Now in Jerusalem there is a pool which is called Bethesda, having five wings. 3In these lay many sick, blind, crippled and paralyzed, waiting for their time of healing. 4(For they believed that an angel goes down into the waters, at a certain season and stirred the waters. And whoever then stepped into the pool afterwards is made whole), (NOTE: this verse is omitted in several bible versions) 5A man was there, that had an infirmity for thirty-eight years. 6When Jesus saw him laying there, knowing that he had been in that condition a long time. He said to the man; Are you earnestly desiring to be made whole? 7The man answered; Sir, I have no one to put me in the water when it is stirred, for before I can get to the water, another steps down before me. 8Jesus said to the man; Get up, take your bed and walk. 9Immediately, the man was made whole, he picked up his bed and walked away. 10And this happened on the Sabbath day.

11The Jews then told the man, that it is not lawful to carry your bed on the Sabbath day. 12And the man replied; He who made me whole, said to me; Take up your bed and walk. 13When he was asked by the Jews, who this Man was? The man did not know, for Jesus had withdrawn Himself and a multitude of people were in that place. 14Afterwards, Jesus found the man in the temple and said to him; You have been made whole, sin no more, least a worse thing happens to you.

15Then the man left the temple and told the Jews that the Man who made him well was Jesus. 16For this reason, the Jews criticized Jesus, seeking an opportunity to slay Him, because He healed on the Sabbath. 17But Jesus replied to them; My Father has been working until now and I also work. 18Therefore the Jews sought even harder to kill Him, for He had not only broken the Sabbath, but He also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. 19At this, Jesus said; Truly, I tell you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do. 20For the Father loves the Son showing the Son the things that He does and He will show Him even greater works than these, that you may marvel and be filled with wonder. 21Even as the Father raises and gives life to the dead, the Son also quickens whomever, He wills. 22For the Father judges no man, but has left all judgment unto the Son. 23That all men should honor the Son, as they also honor the Father. He that does not honor the Father, neither honors the Son, who was sent by the Father. 24Truly I tell you, he that hears Me and believes on the Father, has everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation, for he has passed from death to life. 25I say to you again; That the hour is coming and is now here, when the dead who hear the voice of the Son of God, will live. 26As the Father has life in Himself, He has also granted the Son to have life in Himself. 27And the Father has also given the Son authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

28Do not marvel at this, for I tell you that the hour is coming when all who are in the graves shall hear His voice. 29And they shall come forth, they who have done good unto the resurrection of life and they who have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation. 30Of My own, I can do nothing. As I hear, that I judge and My judgment is righteous and just, because I do not seek My own desires but the desires of the Father. 31If I was speaking on My own, My witness would not be true. 32The Father bears witness on My behalf and I know that His witness is true. 33You have also heard John the Baptist as how he gave testimony of Me, (verse 1:34). 34Yet I do not look for a witness from men, I speak these things that you might believe and be saved. 35John was a shining light and you were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36But I have a greater witness than John's, for the works that the Father has given Me to complete, bear witness that the Father has sent Me. 37The Father who has sent Me bears witness of Me, but you have not heard His voice or seen His shape at any time. 38Nor does His Word remain in you, for you believe not on His Son.

39You believe you have eternal life through the scriptures, but those very scriptures testify of Me. 40Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have eternal life. 41I have received no honor from men, neither do I look for it. 42For I recognize that you have not the love of God in you. 43I have come in My Fathers name and you do not receive Me; yet if another comes in his own name, you will receive him. 44How can you believe the honor one gives to another, when you do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? 45Do not suppose that I will accuse you before the Father, Moses, in whom you trust has already done that. 46For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed Me, for he wrote of Me. 47If you do not believe the writings of Moses, then how can you possibly believe My Words.

Gospel of John: chapter 6

1After this Jesus went across the sea of Galilee, which is also called the sea of Tiberias. 2And a great multitude of people followed Him, because they had seen the great miracles that He had performed on the sick. 3Jesus then went up on a mountain and sat down with His disciples. 4Now the Passover Feast of the Jews was approaching. 5Then Jesus saw the great multitude of people coming to Him and He said to Philip, one of His disciples; Where shall we buy bread so that all of these may eat? 6(this Jesus said to test Philip, for He knew what He would do). 7Philip answered; Eight months of wages would not be sufficient to buy enough bread, that each of them might have a little piece. 8Then Andrew, Simon-Peter's brother, said to Him; 9There is a little boy here that has five loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many? 10Jesus then told His disciples to have the people sit down, for the area was green lush pasture land, now there was about five thousand men. 11Jesus took the loaves and when He had given thanks, He distributed them to His disciples and the disciples to the people. Likewise, He did the same with the fish and all ate as much as they wished.

12When all the people were filled, He told His disciples to; Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing shall be lost. 13And they gathered and filled twelve baskets with the fragments. 14When the people realized the miracle that Jesus had done, they said; Truly, a prophet has come into the world. 15But when Jesus perceived that the people would come and make Him an earthly king, if necessary by force, He departed alone to a mountain.

16When evening had come, His disciples went down to the sea. 17They entered into a boat and started across the sea back to Capernaum. It had now become dark and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18Then a great wind started to blow and the sea was getting rough. 19When the disciples had rowed about three and a half miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea, coming towards the boat and they were terrified. 20But Jesus said to them; It is I, do not be afraid. 21Then they willingly received Him into the boat and immediately the boat was at its destination.

22The very next day, the people who remained where Jesus and His disciples had been. Realizing that there had only been one boat and Jesus had not gone into it with His disciples. 23Now other boats were gathering at the place where the multitude had eaten the loaves, blessed by the Lord. 24And when the crowd saw that Jesus nor His disciples were there, they set off across the sea for Capernaum seeking Jesus. 25When they found Him on the other side, they said to Him; Rabbi, how and when did You get here? 26But Jesus replied; Truly, I say to you, you are not seeking Me because of the miracles you witnessed, but rather that you ate and were filled. 27Do not labor for food that perishes, but rather for meat that leads to everlasting life. That the Son of Man will give to you, because God the Father backs the Son.

28Then the people asked Him; What shall we do to work the works of God? 29Jesus answered them; The work of God is to believe on the Son that He has sent. 30Then they asked of Him; What sign then will You show us, that we can see and believe? 31For our fathers ate manna in the wilderness, as it is written; He gave them bread from heaven to eat, Psalm 78:24.

32Jesus replied; I tell you truly, Moses did not give them bread from heaven, but My Father gave them the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. 34Then they said to Him; Lord, always give us of this bread. 35Jesus then said to them; I am the Bread of Life, he that comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes on Me, shall never thirst. 36But, as I have told you, even though you have seen Me, you do not believe. 37All of those who the Father entrusts Me with shall come to Me and they who come to Me, I shall in no wise reject them. 38For I came down from heaven, not to fulfill My own desires but to do the will and purpose of the Father. 39For it was the Father's will that I come and that I should lose none of those that He has given Me, but rather raise them up on the last day. 40His will is that everyone who sees the Son and believes on Him should have everlasting life and I will raise him up at the last day.

41The Jews then grumbled, because He said, I am the Bread that came down from heaven. 42Questioning among themselves, is this not the son of Joseph, whose family we know, how can He then say, I came down from heaven? 43Jesus then said to them; Do not grumble among yourselves. 44No man can come to Me except the Father draws him and I shall raise him up at the last day. 45As it is written in the prophets; Every man shall be taught of God, Isaiah 54:13. Thus everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 46For no man has seen the Father except He which is of God. 47Truly I tell you, that he who believes on Me has everlasting life. 48Yes, I am the Bread of Life. 49Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness and yet they are now dead. 50The Bread that comes down from heaven, is so a man may eat of it and not die. 51I am that Living Bread that came down from heaven, if any man eats of My flesh he will live forever, I give this for the life of the world.

52The Jews then further grumbled among themselves, saying; How can this Man give us His flesh to eat? 53Jesus replied; Truly, I tell you, Except you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man, you have no life in you. 54They that partake of My flesh and blood have eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For My flesh is meat and My blood drink. 56And whoever partakes of them, dwells in Me and I in Him. 57Just as I live because of the Living Father, he that eats of Me shall live because of Me. 58I am the Bread which came down from Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna and died in the wilderness, but he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever. 59These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

60Many of His disciples when they heard this, said; this is a strange and offensive teaching, who can stand to listen to such a message? 61When Jesus knew that even His disciples were grumbling over this teaching, He said to them; Does this offend you? 62What would you then think if the Son of Man ascended up to heaven where He was before? 63It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The Words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life. 64But some of you even now don't believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who would not believe and who would betray Him. 65Therefore, it is as I have said before, no man can come to Me, unless it has been granted to him by My Father. 66After this teaching, many of His disciples left and followed Him no more. 67Then Jesus said to His twelve; Do you also wish to leave? 68Simon-Peter answered Him and said; Lord to whom would we go? You have the Words of eternal life. 69We have also come to know that You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. 70Jesus replied; I have chosen you twelve and yet one of you is a devil. 71When He said this He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the one that would betray Him.

Gospel of John: chapter 7

1After this Jesus walked about in Galilee for He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him there. 2Now the Jewish feast of tabernacles was nearing. 3And His brothers told Him to go up to the feast into Judea, so all of your disciples can see the works that You do. 4For no one who wishes to be known in public, does things in secret. Therefore, if You truly do these things, go and show these things to the world. 5For neither did His brothers believe Him. 6Jesus, said to them; My time has not yet come, but any time is suitable for you. 7The world is not able to hate you, but it hates Me, because I testify of it that its works are evil. 8You go up to the feast, I am not yet going, for My time has not yet come. 9And when He had said this, Jesus remained in Galilee.

10However, after His brothers had gone up to the feast, Jesus also went up, not openly, but as in secret. 11Now at the feast the Jews were looking for Jesus, asking where He was. 12For there was much private discussion among the people about Him, some said, He is a good Man, while others said, He deceives the people. 13But no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Jews. 14About half way through the time of the feast, Jesus went into the temple and taught. 15And the Jews marveled of how He was so well versed in the scriptures, having never studied. 16Jesus answered them; My teaching is not My own, but of the Father, who sent Me. 17If any man desires to do the Father's will, he will be able to discern concerning the doctrine that I speak, if it is of Myself or if it is of God. 18He who speaks of himself, seeks of his own glory, but He who seeks the glory of the Father, is true and no unrighteousness is in Him. 19Moses gave you the law, yet none of you keep the law, Why do you then seek to kill Me?

20The crowd answered Him, saying; You are demon possessed, who seeks to kill You? 21Jesus answered; I have done one work and you have all marveled. 22Moses instructed you in circumcision and you will circumcise on the Sabbath day. 23If you will circumcise a child on the Sabbath, to keep from breaking the law of Moses. Why then are you angry at Me for making a man completely well on the Sabbath day? 24Be honest in your judgments, do not judge by appearances but rather use righteous judgments.

25Now some of the people from Jerusalem then said; Is this not the One whom they seek to kill? 26And He speaks openly and boldly and the rulers do nothing, is it possible they have determined that He is the Christ? 27However, we know where this Man comes from, when the Christ comes no man will know where He comes from. 28Jesus then cried out in a loud voice as He taught in the temple, saying; You think you know Me and where I come from, but I have not come of Myself, rather the Father, who sent Me is true whom you do not know. 29But I know the Father, for I am of Him and was sent by Him. 30Therefore they were eager to arrest Him, but no one touched Him, for His hour had not yet come.

31Many in the crowd believed on Him, thinking to themselves, when the Christ comes, He will do more miracles than this Man has done. 32When the Pharisees heard of how the people were murmuring of Him, they and the chief priests then sent guards to arrest Him. 33Then Jesus spoke out; I shall be with you but a little while longer and then I shall return to the Father, who sent Me. 34You shall seek Me, but shall not find Me, for where I am you are not able to come. 35The Jews then questioned among themselves, where He would go that they could not find Him? Will He go to the scattering of the Jews that are among the Greeks and teach the Greeks? 36We do not understand what this statement of His means, you will seek Me and shall not find Me and where I go you cannot come?

37Now on the final and great day of the feast, Jesus said in a loud voice; If any man thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38He that believes and trusts in Me, as the scriptures says; rivers of living water shall flow out of his belly. 39This He spoke of the Spirit that had not yet been given to all believers, because Jesus had not yet been glorified {crucified}. 40Many people when they heard this said, truly this is the Prophet, 41while others said, this is the Christ. Yet, some questioned if the Christ would come out of Galilee? 42For scripture says; Christ is the seed of David and will come out of Bethlehem, Micah 5:2. 43So because of Him, there was a division among the people. 44Now some of them desired to arrest Him, but no one dared to lay a hand on Him.

45When the guards returned to the chief priests and the Pharisees, the guards were questioned, as to why they had not arrested Him? 46And the guards replied, no mere man has ever spoken like this Man. 47At which the Pharisees said to the guards; has He also deceived you? 48None of the rulers or Pharisees believe on Him. 49But only the common people, who do not know the law and are accursed. 50Now one of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, who had come to Jesus by night and was a believer, said to the others; 51Does our law judge a man before it hears him? 52They answered him, saying; Are you also from Galilee, look for yourself, the scriptures say that no prophet comes out of Galilee, NOTE: (actually the prophets Jonah and Nahum both came from Galilee). 53And they then each went to his own house.

Gospel of John: chapter 8

1After that Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2Early in the morning He again came to the temple and all the people sat down around Him, as He taught them. 3Right then, the teachers of the law and the Pharisees came to Him with a woman caught in the act of adultery and they set her in the mist of them. 4And said to Him; Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. 5Now, Moses in the law commands us to stone her, but what do You say?

6This they said trying to trap Him, that they would be able to accuse Him. But, Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote in the ground, acting as He did not even hear them. 7As they continued asking Him, He looked up and said; He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone. 8Again He stooped down and wrote in the ground. 9Having heard this and being convicted by their own conscience, they left one by one, beginning with the oldest to even the youngest. And Jesus was left alone with the woman standing there. 10When Jesus looked up and saw only the woman, He said to her; Woman, where are your accusers, has anyone condemned you? 11She answered; No man, Lord. And He said; Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.

12Jesus again addressed the crowd, saying; I am the Light of the world, whoever follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13The Pharisees then said to Him; Are You not witnessing on Your own behalf, therefore, Your witness is not true. 14Jesus replied; Even though I give witness on My own behalf, My witness is true, for I know where I have come from and where I am going, but you know of nether. 15You judge after the actions of the flesh, I judge nor do I condemn any man. 16Yet if I do judge, My judgment is true, for the Father that has sent Me is with Me. 17Your law states that the testimony of two men is valid. 18I bear witness of Myself and the Father that sent Me bears witness of Me.

19Then they asked Him; So where is Your Father? Jesus answered; You know neither Me nor My Father, if you would have known Me, you would have also known My Father. 20Jesus spoke these Words in the treasury, as He taught in the temple and no one laid a hand on Him for His hour had not yet come. 21Then He again said to them; I am going away, you shall seek for Me, but you shall die under the curse of your own sins, for where I go you cannot come. 22The Jews were then wondering if He would kill Himself, because He said; where I go you cannot come? 23But Jesus answered them, saying; You are of this fallen world, I am from above, you are of this world, I am not of this world. 24Therefore I tell you that, if you do not believe that I AM, you shall die under the curse of your own sins.

25Then they said to Him; Who are You? And Jesus replied; It is just as I have told you from the beginning. 26I have many things to say and judgments concerning you, but He who has sent Me is trustworthy and I speak to you only the Words that I hear from Him. 27They did not understand that Jesus spoke to them of the Father. 28He then said; When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He. That I do nothing of Myself and I speak only the things the Father has taught Me. 29For the Father that sent Me is with Me, He has not left Me alone, for I always do the works that please Him. 30As Jesus spoke these Words, many came to believe on Him.

31Then Jesus said to the Jews, who believed in Him; If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. 32And you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. 33They said to Him; We are Abraham's seed and have never been in bondage to any man, what do You mean, "you shall be made free"? 34Jesus answered them and said; Truly, I tell you, that whoever commits sin is the servant of sin. 35A servant does not reside in the house forever, but a son does. 36Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. 37I know that you are Abraham's seed, yet you seek to kill Me, for My Word has no place in you. 38I tell you of what I have seen with My Father and likewise, you speak of what you have seen with your father. 39They replied; Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them; If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40But now you seek to kill Me, because I have told you the truth that I have heard from God, Abraham did not do such. 41You do the deeds of your father. Then they said to Him; we are not born of fornication, we have one Father and that is God.

42Jesus said; If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I have not come on My own, but rather God has sent Me. 43Why do you not understand Me, is it because you don't hear My Word. 44You are of your father the devil and you crave to do his lusts and desires. For from the very beginning he was a murderer, for the truth is not in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks of his own thoughts, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45Because I tell you the truth, you don't believe Me. 46Can any of you convict Me of wrongdoing or of a misleading word, yet when I tell you the truth why do you not believe Me? 47He that is of God, hears My Words, but you do not hear them because you are not of God.

48The Jews then said to Him; Are we not right when we say, You are a Samaritan, (of a mixed race), and You have a demon? 49Jesus answered; I do not have a demon, for I honor My Father and you dishonor Me. 50I do not seek My own glory, the Father seeks that for Me and He is the judge. 51Truly I tell you, if a man keeps My Word, he shall never see death. 52The Jews then said; Now we are certain that You have a demon, for Abraham and the prophets are dead and You tell us that if anyone keeps Your Word they shall never taste death. 53Are you greater than our father Abraham or the prophets, who are all dead. Who do you claim to be? 54Jesus answered; If I honor Myself, it is nothing, it is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say He is your God. 55You do not know the Father, but I know Him and keep His Word. If I would deny knowing Him, I would be a liar like you. 56Your father Abraham rejoiced and was glad to see My day.

57The Jews then said to Him; You are not yet fifty years old and You say You have seen Abraham. 58Jesus said; Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I was. 59Then they then picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus concealed Himself among the crowd and went out of the temple.

Gospel of John: chapter 9

1As Jesus and His disciples passed by, He saw a man that was blind from birth. 2And His disciples asked Jesus; Who sinned, this man or his parents, that He was born blind? 3Jesus answered; Neither, he nor his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest within him. 4I must do the works of God while it is still day, the night comes when no man can do work. 5As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world. 6When He had spoken these things, He spat on the ground, made clay from the spittle and rubbed the clay on the blind man's eyes. 7Then telling the man to; Go and wash in the pool of Siloam. And the man went his way, washed and came back seeing.

8When the man's neighbors saw the man who had been blind, they questioned if this was the man they had known who had begged. 9Some said; it is he, while others said, he just looks like him, but the man said; I am he. 10Then they asked him, how his eyes were opened? 11And he said; a Man named Jesus made clay and rubbed it on my eyes. Telling me then to go and wash in the pool of Siloam. I went and washed and received my sight. 12They then asked him, where is this man? And the healed man said; I do not know.

13They then brought, the man who once was blind to the Pharisees. 14For Jesus had healed the man on a Sabbath day. 15The Pharisees then asked the man how he received his sight? And the man said to them; He put clay on my eyes, I washed and now I see. 16Some of the Pharisees said; this Man could not be from God, for He does not keep the Sabbath. While others said, how could a sinner do such a great miracle and there was a division among them.

17Again the Pharisees asked the man, who he believed this Man to be, because He opened your eyes? And the man answered; He is a prophet. 18But they dismissed the situation, for they did not believe the man had been blind and received his sight. Until they called in his parents. 19The Pharisees first asked the parents if this was their son, who had been born blind and if so how does he now see. 20The parents verified that it was their son, who was born blind. 21But said, we do not know how he now sees, or whom opened his eyes, he is of age ask him, he can speak for himself. 22The parents said this because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had made it known, that if any man confessed that He was the Christ, he would be put out of the synagogue. 23That is why the parents said, he is of age ask him.

24Again the Pharisees called the man who once was blind, saying; give God the glory, we know that this Man is a sinner. 25The man answered saying; Whether He is a sinner or not, I do not know. What I do know is that, I was blind and now I see. 26Then the Pharisees asked him again, saying; what did He actually do to you, how did He open your eyes? 27The man answered; I have told you and you would not listen. Why do you wish to hear it again? Do you also wish to become His disciples?

28Then the Pharisees stormed at him, you may be His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. 29We know that God spoke to Moses, but we do not know where this Man is from. 30The man replied; this is amazing, that you do not know where this Man is from and yet He has opened my eyes. 31For we know that God does not hear sinners, but He hears worshippers who do His will 32Ever since the world began, nothing such as this has been heard of that anyone could open the eyes of one born blind. 33If this Man was not from God, He could do nothing like this. 34They answered him, saying; you were born in sin and you dare to teach us! And they cast him out.

35Jesus hearing that they had cast him out, found him and said to him; Do you believe in the Son of God? 36The man answered; who is He, Lord, that I might believe in Him? 37Jesus then said to him; You have both seen Him and it is He that is talking with you. 38The man said; Lord, I do believe and he worshiped Him. 39Jesus then said; I have come into this world, for judgment. That those who do not see, may see and those who see might be made blind. 40Some of the Pharisees that were near Him said to Him, Are we also blind? 41Jesus then answered them, saying; If you were blind, you would have no sin, but you tell Me, that you see, so your sin remains within you.

Gospel of John: chapter 10

1Truly, I say to you, the man that does not enter into the sheepfold through the door but rather gains entry by another way, is a thief and a robber. 2But he that enters in through the door is the shepherd. 3The gatekeeper opens to him, for the sheep hear his voice as he calls them by name and leads them out. 4He then goes before them and the sheep follow him. For they know his voice. 5A stranger they will not follow, but rather they flee from, for they do not know the voices of strangers. 6Jesus spoke this parable to them, however they did not understand it.

7Then Jesus said to them; Truly, I tell you, that I am the Door for the sheep. 8Those who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the true sheep did not hear their voice. 9I am the Door, if any man enters in, he shall be saved, coming and going freely and will find abundance. 10The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come that they might have life and have it more abundantly. 11I am the Good Shepherd that gives His life for His sheep. 12Unlike a hireling who does not own the sheep, when the wolf comes, he leaves the sheep and flees. 13The hireling flees because he does not care for the sheep. 14But I am the Good Shepherd and know My sheep and My own know Me. 15As the Father knows Me, I also know the Father and I lay My life down for the sheep. 16I also have other sheep that are not of this fold and shall bring them out, for they will hear My voice and all shall be of one fold under one Shepherd. 17This is why the Father loves Me. For I lay down My life, that I might take it up again. 18No man takes it from Me, for I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down and I have power to take it up again.

19Again there was a division among the Jews over His sayings. 20Many of them said; He is possessed and is mad, why even bother listing to Him? 21While others said; these are not the words of a possessed Man, can a possessed Man open the eyes of the blind?

22It was now winter in Jerusalem and Jesus was there for the feast of dedication. 23And Jesus walked into the temple area in Solomon's porch 24The Jews then came around Him and said to Him; How long will You keep us in suspense, if you are the Christ tell us plainly.

25Jesus answered; I told you and you did not believe Me, the works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. 26But, it is as I said, you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep. 27For My sheep hear My voice for I know them and they follow Me. 28I give them eternal life and they shall never perish nor shall they be snatched out of My hand. 29For My Father whom gave them to Me is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of My Fathers hand 30and I and My Father are One.

31Then the Jews took up stones to stone Him. 32But Jesus said to the Pharisees and religious leaders of that day; Many good works have I done of My Father, which work do you stone Me for? 33They answered Him, saying; we do not stone You because of good works, but rather for blasphemy, You are but a mere man and You have made Yourself out to be God. 34Jesus replied; Is it not written in your scriptures; I say, You are gods? Psalm 82:6. 35If He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came, knowing that scripture cannot be broken. 36Why then do you say to the One that the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, You are blaspheming, because I said I am the Son of God? 37If I fail to do the works of My Father, then you have reason not to believe Me. 38But I do the works of My Father, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works that I do, so that you may know that the Father is in Me and I am in the Father. 39Again they sought to arrest Him, but, He escaped from their hands.

40Jesus then went away, beyond the Jordan river where John the Baptist had first been baptizing. 41And many people came to Him there, saying; John did no miracles, but the words that John spoke of this Man are true. 42And many believed on Him there.

Gospel of John: chapter 11

1There was a certain man named Lazarus, of the town of Bethany, who was sick. The brother of Mary and Martha. 2It was Mary, who had anointed the Lord and wiped His feet with her hair. 3So the sisters sent word to Jesus, saying; Lord, Lazarus who You love is sick. 4When Jesus received this word, He said; This sickness will not end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified through it. 5Now Jesus loved all three, (Martha, Mary and Lazarus). 6But when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed where He was for yet two more days. 7After the two days, He said to His disciples; Let us now go back to Judea. 8But His disciples said to Him; Rabbi, the Jews in Judea seek to stone You and You wish to go back there?

9Jesus said; There are twelve hours of daylight, if a man walks in the light, he does not stumble. 10But if a man walks in the dark he stumbles because the light is not in him. 11After having said this, He said; Our friend, Lazarus, sleeps, but I shall go that I might awaken him out of sleep. 12To this, His disciples said; Lord, if he sleeps, he will recover. 13For His disciples did not know that Jesus spoke of his death, rather they thought Jesus was referring to natural sleep. 14Then said Jesus; Lazarus is dead. 15And I am glad that I was not there, for it will help you to believe in Me, now let us go to Him. 16Then said Thomas, one of His twelve disciples, Let us go that we too may also die with Him.

17When Jesus arrived there, Lazarus had been dead and in the grave for four days. 18Now the town of Bethany was about two miles from Jerusalem. 19And many of the Jews came to Mary and Martha to comfort them. 20As soon as Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet Him, while Mary stayed in the house. 21When Martha came to Jesus, she said; Master, if You had been here my brother would not have died. 22But even now I know whatever You ask of God, He will grant You. 23Jesus said to her; Your brother will rise again. 24Martha replied; I know that he shall rise in the resurrection, on the last day. 25Jesus then said to her; I am the Resurrection and the Life, he that believes on Me, even though he may die, he shall live. 26And he that believes on Me shall never die. Do you believe this? 27She said to Him; Yes, I believe You are the Christ, the Son of God.

28She then went her way and in secret called Mary, her sister, saying the Master has come and is asking for you. 29As soon as Mary heard this, she departed quickly and came to Jesus. 30Jesus not yet being inside the town, but was still at the place where Martha had met Him 31Now as Mary quickly departed from the house, the Jews that were with her, also followed her, thinking she was going to the tomb to weep. 32When Mary had come to Jesus, she fell at His feet, saying; Lord, if You had been here my brother would not have died. 33As Jesus saw Mary weeping and the Jews that had come with her also weeping, He was deeply moved and groaned in the spirit. 34Jesus then said; Where have you laid him? And they replied; Lord, come and see. 35Jesus then wept Himself. 36Seeing this, the Jews said among themselves, look how deeply He loved him! 37However some of the Jews silently ridiculed Him; saying, could not this Man who opened blind eyes, have prevented this man's death?

38When they got to the grave, (a cave with a large stone laid over its mouth), Jesus again groaned in the spirit. 39Jesus spoke and said; Remove the stone. But, Martha replied, Lord, he hes been dead for four days and by now the body is decaying and stinks. 40Jesus answered her and said; Did I not tell you that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God? 41When the stone was removed. Jesus lifted up His eyes and said; Father, I thank You, that You have heard Me. 42I know that You always hear Me, but for the people's sake, I say this that they may believe that You have sent Me. 43When He had spoken this, He cried out with a loud voice; Lazarus, come forth. 44And he that had been dead came forth, bound with linen strips. Jesus then said; Remove his grave clothes and set him free. 45Many of the Jews, having seen this then believed on Him. 46However some of them reported what Jesus had done to the Pharisees.

47The chief priests and the Pharisees then gathered in council to discuss what they should do? For this Man, Jesus, does many miracles. 48If we do nothing and leave Him be, all men will believe on Him and the Romans will come and take away both our office and our people.

49Now, Caiaphas, the high priest, spoke and said; you men know nothing at all. 50Have you not considered that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people rather than have the entire nation perish. 51(This he did not say of himself, but he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation). 52And not only for the nation, but also for all the children of God who were scattered abroad. 53And from that day forth they plotted to put Jesus to death. 54Therefore Jesus did not walk openly among the Jews, but went to a district called Ephraim, on the border of the wilderness and continued there with His disciples.

55Now the Jewish Passover was nearing and many of the Jews from that district went up to Jerusalem to begin their purification preparations. 56As they stood in the temple, they were speaking among themselves, wondering if Jesus would come to the feast? 57For the chief priest and the Pharisees both had given orders, that if anyone knew of His whereabouts, they should report it, that they might seize Him.

Gospel of John: chapter 12

1Six days before the Passover, Jesus came into Bethany, where He had raised Lazarus from the dead. 2There He had a meal with Lazarus, while Martha served. 3Then Mary took a jar of very costly perfume, anointed the feet of Jesus with it and wiped His feet with her hair and the whole house became filled with the aroma of the perfume. 4Then said, Judas Iscariot, the disciple that would betray Him; 5Why was this perfume not sold for a large sum and the money given to the poor? 6He said this not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief and carried the money bag, pilfering for himself from the collections.

7Hearing this, Jesus said; Leave her alone, for she has kept this for the preparation for My burial. 8The poor you shall always have with you, but I shall not always be with you. 9Now many Jews knew that Jesus was there and they had come out not only to see Jesus, but also to see Lazarus, who was raised from the dead. 10And the chief priests then conspired, that they would also put Lazarus to death. 11For because of this many of the Jews believed on Jesus.

12The next day, when a great number of people that were going to the feast, heard that Jesus was also going to Jerusalem. 13They took branches from palm trees and when they met Him, they cried out; Hosanna, praise to Him who comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel, Psalm 118:26. (The word Hosanna means; save us now).

14For Jesus came riding, sitting on a young donkey, fulfilling what the scriptures say: 15Do not fear daughter of Zion, for your King comes sitting on a donkeys's colt, Zechariah 9:9. 16His disciples did not understand these things at first, but after Jesus was glorified, they remember that these things were written about Him and had been done to Him. 17And the people that had witnessed Lazarus coming out of the tomb also bore witness of this. 18It was for this reason that the crowd went out to greet Him, because they heard He had done this great sign. 19When the Pharisees saw this, they said among themselves; see, we gain nothing! For the whole world has gone after Him. 20There were also a certain number of Greeks that had come up to worship at the feast. 21They then came to one of His disciples and asked to see Jesus. 22When the message was relayed to Him.

23Jesus answered them and said; The hour has come, when the Son of Man will be glorified. 24Truly, I tell you that, unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains a single grain, but if it dies, it will produce much, yielding a rich harvest. 25He who loves his earthly life will lose it, but he who hates his earthly life will keep it unto life eternal. 26If anyone serves Me, let them follow Me, for then even as I am, so shall they also be and the Father will honor them. 27Right now My soul is troubled, what shall I say; Father, save Me from this hour, but it is for this cause I have come. 28Rather I will say, Father, glorify your name. Then a voice came from heaven, saying; I have glorified it and will glorify it again.

29Some of the people hearing the voice said it thundered, while others said an angel had spoken to Him. 30Jesus said to the crowd; This voice did not come for My sake, but rather it came for your sakes. 31For now is the judgment of this world and the evil ruler of this world will be cast out. 32If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all {judgement} NOTE: (the KJV version inserts the italic word "men") to Myself. 33(This He said, signifying the type of death He would die). 34The people questioning this, saying; The law says that Christ abides forever, how then can You say, that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man? 35Jesus replied; the Light will be with you a little longer, walk in the Light while you have it, least the darkness overtakes you. For he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. 36While you have the Light, believe in that Light that you may become children of the Light. After He spoke these things, He went away and hid Himself.

37Even though He had performed many miracles right before their eyes, yet they still did not believe in Him. 38This fulfilled the prophecy that Isaiah wrote; Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?, Isaiah 53:1.

39They were not able to believe, for Isaiah wrote again; 40He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, least they should see with their eyes and understand with their hearts, that they should turn from their ways and I should heal them, Isaiah 6:9-10 41Isaiah said these things, as he spoke of the Son and partaking in God's glory.

42Even some of the chief rulers believed on Him, but because of the Pharisees, they did not confess Him, least they be put out of the synagogues. 43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. 44Jesus then cried out; He that believes in Me and seeks Me, believes and seeks for the Father, who has sent Me. 45Likewise, he who sees Me, sees Him who sent Me. 46I have come as a Light into the world, that whoever believes in Me shall not dwell in darkness. 47I do not judge them who hear My Words and yet believe not, for I came not to judge the world, but to save it. 48He that has rejected Me and My Words, has actually judged himself and shall be convicted by his own judgment on the last day. 49I have not spoken on My own, but the Father that sent Me gave Me a command of what to speak. 50For I know His commandment is life everlasting, therefore I speak the Words the Father has given Me.

Gospel of John: chapter 13

1Before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour was near and that He would soon depart from this world and go to the Father. Having loved His fellow believers that were in the world, even to the very end. 2With the Passover supper now being ended, the devil had entered the heart of Judas Iscariot, that would soon betray Him.

3Jesus knowing that the Father had given Him all things, that He had come from God and would be returning back to God. 4Rose from supper, laid aside His garment and wrapped a towel around Himself. 5Pouring water into a basin, He then began to wash the disciple's feet and wipe them with the towel that was around His waist. 6As He came to Peter, Peter questioned this, saying; Lord are you going to wash my feet? 7Jesus answered; You do not yet understand what I am doing, but, you will understand later. 8Peter replied; You shall never wash my feet. But, Jesus answered and said; If I do not wash your feet, you shall have no part with Me. 9At this, Peter replied; Lord, not only my feet, but also my head and hands. 10Jesus said to him; One who has bathed needs only to wash his feet for he is clean all over and you My disciples are clean, but not all are. 11(Jesus said this for He knew Judas Iscariot would betray Him), therefore, He said, you are not all clean.

12After He had washed their feet, He took up His garments and sat down and said to them; Do you understand what I have just done to you? 13You call Me, Lord and Teacher and rightfully so. 14If I then have washed your feet, being Lord and Teacher, you also shall wash one another's feet. 15For I have given you an example, do as I have done. 16Truly I say to you, The servant is not greater than his master, neither is he who was sent by someone, greater than the person who he was sent by. 17If you know these things, blessed and happy are you if you practice them. 18I do not speak this concerning all of you, for I know who I have chosen. But, that scripture may be fulfilled; one who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heal against Me, Psalm 41:9. 19I tell you this before it happens, so that you may believe that I am He, when it does happen. 20Truly I tell you, he that receives My messenger also receives Me and he that receives Me also receives the Father.

21After Jesus had spoken these things, He was troubled in the spirit and said; Truly, I tell you, that one of you shall betray Me. 22The disciples looked at one another, wondering about whom He had spoken of. 23Now the disciples that Jesus loved was leaning on His chest, (this is assumed to be John). 24Therefore Simon-Peter signaled to him, asking whom this might be? 25And when Jesus was asked, 26He answered; It is he that I will give this piece of bread to after I have dipped it. And when He had dipped it He gave it to Judas Iscariot. 27After Judas had taken the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. And Jesus then said to him; Go quickly and do that which you are about to do. 28But no one at the table knew what was meant by this. 29Some thought that because Judas carried the money bag, he was to buy certain things for the feast or that he was to give some money to the poor. 30Judas then immediately went out, into the darkness, for it was night.

31When Judas had gone out, Jesus said; Now the Son of man is glorified and God is glorified through Him and in Him. 32If God is glorified through Him, He shall also immediately be glorified in God.

A new commandment I give you, to love one another.

33Dear children, I shall be with you a little while longer, you shall seek Me and as I have told the Jews, where I go you are not able to come. 34So I give to you a new commandment; That you love one another, just as I have loved you, you are to love one another. 35By this, all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.

36Simon-Peter then asked Him; Lord, where are You going? Jesus answered Where I go, you are not able to follow Me now, but you will follow Me afterwards. 37Peter then replied, Lord, why can't I follow You now, I will lay down my life for Your cause. 38Jesus said; Will you really lay down your life for My sake? I tell you the truth, before the cock crows, you shall deny Me three times.

Gospel of John: chapter 14

1Do not let your heart be troubled, as you trust and believe in God, also trust and believe in Me. 2In My Father's house there are many dwelling places, I go to prepare a place for you. 3I shall then come again and receive you to Me, that where I am you may also be. 4For you know where I go and you also know of the way. 5Thomas, one of the twelve, then said to Him; Lord, we do not know where You are going and how can we possibly know the way? 6Jesus said to him; I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father except through Me. 7If you had known and recognized Me, you would also have known and recognized My Father and from this day on you know Him for you have seen Him.

8Philip then said to Jesus; Lord, show us the Father and it will be sufficient for us. 9Jesus replied; Have I not been with you all this time and yet you do not know Me Philip? He that has seen Me has seen the Father, so how can you say, show us the Father? 10Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The Words that I speak to you, come not from Me, but from the Father, who dwells in Me. 11Believe Me, when I say; I am in the Father and the Father is in Me, if you do not believe Me, at least let the works I do in the Father's name convince you.

12Truly I tell you, He that believes on Me, the works that I do, these and greater works shall he do, because I go to My Father. 13Whatever you shall ask for in My name, I will do for you, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14Anything you ask in My name, that I shall do. 15If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16I will then ask the Father and He will give you another Comforter that He may remain with you until the age. 17The world is not able to receive the Spirit of Truth, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But, you know Him because He dwells with you and in you. 18I shall not leave you orphans, for I will come back to you. 19In a little while the world shall see Me no more, but you shall see Me, for I live and thus shall you live also. 20When that day comes, you will know that I am in the Father, you are in Me and I am in you. 21He that has and keeps My commandments, loves Me and I and the Father love him and I will make Myself known to him.

22Then He was asked by one of the twelve; Lord, how will You make Yourself known to us and not to the world? 23Jesus answered; Whomever loves Me will keep My Word and We shall come and dwell with him. 24He who does not love Me, does not keep My teachings, for the Words that you hear are not Mine but the Father's who sent Me. 25I have spoken these things to you while I am present with you. 26But the Comforter whom the Father will send in My name, He, the Holy Spirit, will teach you all things and bring back to you remembrances what I have said to you.

27Peace, I leave with you, peace, I give to you. I do not give you peace as the world gives, therefore, let your heart not be troubled or fearful. 28You have heard Me tell you that, I go away and will come back to you. If you love Me, you would rejoice, for I am going to the Father, whom is greater than I. 29I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen, you may believe. 30Hereafter, I will not talk much with you, for the evil ruler of this world comes and he has no claim on Me, nor anything in common with Me. 31So the world may know that I love the Father and I do as the Father has given Me commandment. Now arise and let us go, for I must fulfill what has been written of Me.

Gospel of John: chapter 15

1I am the true Vine and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2Every branch, within Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away and every branch that bears fruit, He trims back, so it may bring forth more fruit. 3You are now clean because of the Word I have spoken unto you. 4Abide now in Me and I in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you bear fruit, unless you abide in Me.

5I am the Vine, you are the branches, if you abide in Me, you shall bring forth much fruit, but without Me you can do nothing. 6If a man does not abide in Me, he is cut off, just as a branch having been cut off from the tree withers and dies and is cast into the fire. 7If you abide in Me and My Words in you, whatever you ask shall be done for you. 8Therein is My Father glorified when you bear much fruit and you show yourself to be true disciples of Mine. 9Just as the Father loves Me, I also love you, therefore, continue in My love. 10If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and remain in His love. 11These things I have spoken to you that My joy may remain in you, so that your joy may be full.

12My commandment to you is; That you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13There is no greater love, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are My friends, if you do as I command you. 15From here on I no longer call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master does. But, I call you friends, for all things that I have learned from My Father, I have made known to you. 16You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and have ordained you to go and bring forth much fruit. That whatever you ask of the Father, in My name, He shall give you. 17Of this I command you; that you should love one another.

18If the world hates you, know that it hated Me first. 19If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But, you are not of the world for I have chosen you, therefore, the world hates you. 20Remember the Word that I spoke to you, that a servant is not greater than his master, if they persecuted Me, they will likewise, persecute you and if they have kept My sayings, they will also keep yours. 21All these things they will do because of My name, for they do not know the Father, who has sent Me. 22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of their own sin, but now they have no excuse for their own sin. 23He that hates Me also hates the Father. 24If they had not seen great signs and wonders that I did among them such as no other had done, they would not have had sin, but now they hate both Me and My Father. 25But this has come to pass that the word in their law might be fulfilled, They hated Me without cause, Psalm 35:19.

26But when the Comforter has come, the Spirit of Truth that I will send from the Father, He will testify of Me. 27Then you shall bear witness of Me, for you have been with Me from the beginning.

Gospel of John: chapter 16

1These things, I have told you so that you are not offended and taken unaware. 2They shall expel you from the synagogues and there will even come a time, when those who kill you will believe they are doing God a service. 3They will do these things to you because they neither know the Father nor do they know Me. 4I did not tell you of these things from the beginning, for I was with you. But, I tell you of them now so when the time comes you may remember My Words. 5Now I go to the Father, who sent Me, yet none of you ask Me, where I am going? 6Because sorrow has filled your hearts, as I have spoken these things to you. 7Truly, I tell you, it is beneficial for you that I go, for if I do not go away the Comforter will not come, but when I depart, I will send Him to you. 8And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, of righteous and of judgment. 9Of sin, because they do not believe in Me. 10Of righteousness, because I go to the Father and am no longer in this world. 11Of judgment, because the evil ruler of this world is judged. 12I still have much to say to you, but you are not able to bear these truths now. 13However, when the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak of Himself, for what He hears from the Father He will declare to you and show you of the things to come. 14He shall glorify Me, for He shall reveal things of Mine to you. 15For all things that the Father has are Mine, therefore, He shall take what is Mine and declare it to you. 16In a little while you shall not see Me, but in a little while you shall see Me, because I go to the Father.

17Now His disciples did not understand what this meant when He said; a little while and you will not see Me and a little while and you shall see Me, because I go to the Father? 18And they questioned this among themselves. 19Jesus perceived that they were desirous to ask Him and said to them; Are you wondering what I meant when I said; A little while and you shall not see Me and a little while and you shall see Me? 20I tell you the truth, you shall weep and mourn, while the world rejoices, but afterwards your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21Just as a woman in childbirth has sorrow when her hour is come, however when the child is delivered, she remembers the pains no more, for the joy that a child has been born into the world. 22Now you have sorrow, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, with joy that no one can take from you. 23In that day you will not question Me, But I tell you truly that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He will give it to you.

24Until now, you have not asked for anything in My name, ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25I have told you these things in veiled language, but the time comes when I will speak to you plainly of the Father. 26In that day you shall ask in My name, but it will be unnecessary for Me to pray to the Father for you. 27For the Father himself loves you, because you love Me and believe that I have come of God. 28I came of the Father into the world, now I shall leave the world and go back to the Father. 29His disciples said; Now You are talking plainly. 30Now we are sure that You know all things and by this, we believe that You have come from God. 31Jesus replied; Do you now believe? 32The hour has come, that you will be scattered, each to his own and shall abandon Me. Yet, I am not alone for the Father is with Me. 33I have told you these things that in Me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Gospel of John: chapter 17
Christ prays for Himself, His disciples and all believers.

1After Jesus had spoken these Words, He lifted up His eyes to heaven, saying: Father, the hour has come, glorify your Son, that I may also glorify You. 2Just as You have given the Son authority over all on the earth, glorify Him now so that He may give eternal life to all that You have given Him. 3For eternal life is that they may know You are the only true God and Jesus Christ that You have sent. 4I have glorified You Father here on earth and have finished the work that You gave Me to do. 5Now, Father, glorify Me along with Yourself and restore Us to such glory as we had before the world existed. 6I have revealed Your name to the men that You have set apart from this world and have given Me. They were Yours that You gave Me and they have kept Your Word. 7They now know and understand that all things that You have given Me are of You. 8For the Words that You have given Me, I have given them and they received them. Knowing for sure that I have come from the Father and believing that You have sent Me.

9I pray for those whom are Yours that You have given Me, not for those of the world. 10All that are Yours are also Mine and all that I have is Yours and I am glorified through them. 11Now I come to You and shall no longer be in the world, but they are in the world. Therefore, I come to You Holy Father that those You have given Me, You will keep them in the knowledge of Yourself, that they may be one even as We are One. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them united in the knowledge of Your name and none were lost, except the son of perdition, {Judas Iscariot} so that scripture might be fulfilled. 13Now I come to You Father, having spoken these things in the world, that their joy might be made full and complete through Me. 14I have given them Your Word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the ways of the evil one. 16For they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through the truth of Your Word. 18Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19For their sakes, I sanctify Myself, that they might also be sanctified through the truth.

20I do not only pray for these alone, but also for all who shall come to believe on Me through the Word. 21That they may be one, just as You Father are in Me and I in You, that they may become one in Us, so the world may believe that You sent Me. 22The glory that You have given Me, I have given them, so that they may become one, just as We are One. 23As I shall be in them and You in Me, so that they shall be made perfectly united as one, that the world may know that You sent Me and love them as You have loved Me. 24Father, I desire that those that You gave Me, be with Me and behold the glory that You have given Me, for You have loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25Righteous Father, the world does not know You, but I know You and these that You have sent Me know that You have sent Me. 26I have declared Your name to them and will continue to declare it, that the love that You have loved Me with, may be in them and I in them.

Gospel of John: chapter 18

1When Jesus finished saying these things, He went with His disciples over the brook of Kidron and they all entered into the garden on the other side. 2And Judas Iscariot, whom betrayed Him, also knew of the place, for Jesus very often assembled there with His disciples. 3Now Judas having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees came there, everyone armed with lanterns, torches or weapons.

4Jesus knowing all things that would come upon Him, went up to them and said; Whom are you seeking? 5And they answered Him; Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus then said to them; I am He. And His betrayer, Judas Iscariot, also stood with the crowd of men. 6As soon as Jesus said to them, I am He, they fell to the ground backwards. 7Jesus then asked them again; Whom are you seeking? And they again said; Jesus of Nazareth. 8Jesus answered; I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me let these go their way. 9This was done so that the Words He spoke might be fulfilled; Of those You have given Me I have lost none, John 6:39.

10Then Simon-Peter having a sword drew it and cut off the right ear of the high priest's servant. 11But Jesus said to Peter; Put your sword away, shall I not drink of the cup that My Father has given Me? 12Then the band of men, the captain and the Jews bound Jesus. 13First taking Him to Annas, the father-in-law to Caiaphas, the high priest at the time. 14For it was Caiaphas, who had advised the Jews that it was expedient for us, that one man should die for the people rather than have the entire nation perish.

15Simon-Peter followed Jesus, as did another disciple, now the other disciple was known by the high priest and he was able to go into the palace area. 16But Simon-Peter stood outside by the door, until the other disciple talked to the girl who kept the gate and was then able to bring Simon-Peter in. 17And the servant girl who kept the gate, said to Simon-Peter; are you not also one of that Man's disciples? And Peter said; No I am not. 18Meanwhile the servants and attendants made a fire and were warming themselves for it was a cold night and Peter also stood there warming himself.

19Now the high priest began to question Jesus of His disciples and His doctrine. 20And Jesus answered him, saying; I have spoken openly, in the synagogues, at the temples and to all the Jews, I have said nothing in secret. 21Why do you then ask Me? Ask those that have heard My teachings, they know what I have said. 22When Jesus had said this, one of the officers struck Him with his hand and said; You dare to answer the high priest like that? 23Jesus replied; If I have spoken evil tell Me of it, but if I have spoken well, why did you strike Me? 24Annas, then sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

25As Simon-Peter stood warming himself, those around him said; are you not also one of His disciples? However, Peter again denied it. 26Then one of the high priest servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter cut off. Said, did I not see you in the garden with Him? 27And Peter again denied it. Just then the cock crowed.

Jesus Christ delivered over to Pontius Pilate,   Matthew 27:1Mark 15:1Luke 23:1.

28Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the judgment hall of the governor's palace. It was now early, so the Jews did not enter the judgment hall, least they become defiled and unable to eat of the Passover feast. 29So Pilate went out to them and asked them, what accusation they had against this Man? 30They answered and said; If this Man were not an evildoer, we would not have brought Him to you. 31Pilate said to them; You then take and judge Him according to your laws. However, the Jews replied; It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death. 32This was said to fulfill the Word that Jesus spoke concerning His death.

33Then Pilate entered the judgment hall, called for Jesus and asked Him; if He was the king of the Jews? 34Jesus replied; Do you say this of yourself, or have others told you of Me? 35Pilate answered; I am not a Jew? Your own people and the chief priests have delivered You to me, what have You done? 36Jesus answered; My kingdom is not of this world, if it were, My servants would fight, that I might not be delivered to the Jews. 37Pilate then said; Are you a king? Jesus answering said; You have correctly said that I am a king, for this cause I was born and come into the world. To testify of the truth, for everyone who is of the truth hears My voice. 38Pilate then said to Him; What is the truth? Now when Pilate had said this, he went out to the Jews and said; I find no fault in this Man.

39But Pilate also said to the Jews; According to your custom of releasing a man at the time of the Passover, shall I release to you, the King of the Jews? 40Upon hearing this, all the Jews cried out; Not this Man, release to us Barabbas, (now Barabbas was a murder).

Gospel of John: chapter 19

1Pilate then took Jesus and had Him flogged. 2And the soldiers having formed a crown of thorns, forced it on His head and put a purple robe on Him. 3Then they mocked Him, saying; Hail King of the Jews, striking Him with their hands. 4Pilate then went out to the Jews and said to them; know, that I find no fault in this Man.

5As Jesus came out, He was wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe and Pilate said to them, Behold here is the Man! 6When the chief priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out; crucify Him, crucify Him. Pilate then said to them; you take Him yourselves and you crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him. 7The Jews answered; according to our law He must die, because He claimed Himself to be the Son of God.

8When Pilate heard this, he was stuck with fear. 9And he went into the judgment hall and said to Jesus; where are You from? But, Jesus did not answer. 10Pilate then said to Him, do You not speak to me, do You not know that I have power to crucify You or power to release You? 11Jesus answered and said; You would have no authority against Me, if it had not been given to you from above, therefore, he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.

12From this time on, Pilate sought to release Jesus. But, the Jews cried out; If you release Him, you are not a friend of Caesar, for this Man made Himself a King and anyone who acknowledges Him as a King speaks against Caesar. 13Pilate hearing this, brought Jesus out and sat down at the high place of judgment, that in the Hebrew is called Gabbatha.

14Now it was the preparation time of the Passover feast, about twelve noon, when Pilate again presented Jesus to the Jews and said; behold your King. 15But the Jews cried out; Away with this Man! Let Him be crucified. Pilate said; shall I crucify your King? And the chief priests answered; We have no king but Caesar. 16Then Pilate delivered Jesus up to be crucified and He was led away by the solders.

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ,   Matthew 27:26,   Mark 15:15Luke 23:26.

17Jesus bearing His cross went up to what is called Golgotha, also known as the place of the skull. 18There they crucified Him, with two others, one on each side of Him. 19Pilate then wrote a sign and had it put on the cross. saying; JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place of the crucifixion was near to the city and the sign was written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. 21When the chief priest read this, they said to Pilate, do not write; "The King of the Jews" but that He said, I am the King of the Jews. 22However, Pilate answered; what I have written is how it will stay.

23Now when the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they divided His garments among the four of them. However, His outer coat was woven as one piece without seam. 24So the soldiers cast lots for His coat rather than tear it, This was done to fulfill the scripture that says; They divide My garments among them and cast lots for My clothing., Psalm 22:18.

25Also standing at the cross was Jesus' mother, His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple whom He loved, {a reference to John}, standing there. He said to His mother; Woman, behold your son! 27Then He said to the disciple; Behold your mother! And from that hour on, that disciple took her into his own home.

28After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, said; I thirst, so that scripture might be fulfilled, {They also gave Me gall for my food; and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink} Psalm 69:21. 29When He said this, one of them soaked a sponge in wine vinegar, put the sponge on a stick and raised it to His mouth. 30When Jesus received the vinegar, He said; It is finished, bowed His head and gave up the Spirit.

31Because it was the preparation time in observance of the Sabbath day before the Passover, the Jews did not wish the bodies to remain on the cross. So they asked Pilate to break the legs of the crucified men, {to speed up the process of death}, that the bodies could then be removed and taken away. 32So Pilate sent soldiers to break the legs of the men and they broke the legs of the thefts on either side of Him. 33But when they came to Jesus, they saw that He was dead already and they did not break His legs. 34But one of the soldiers took a spear and pierced His side, (to verify that He was dead) and out came blood and water. 35They who witnessed this bore record of the truth, so that you might believe. 36These things were done so that scripture would be fulfilled; Not one of His bones shall be broken, Exodus 12:46. 37And they shall look on Him who they have pierced, Zechariah 12:10.

38After this, Joseph of Arimathaea, a disciple of Jesus, came to Pilate in secret, for fear of the Jews and asked him that he might take away the body of Jesus. 39Also with him was Nicodemus, who came to Jesus at night and he brought with him about sixty-five pounds of a mixture of myrrh and aloes. 40They then took the body, wrapped it in stripes of linen, enclosed in the spices, as was the burial procedure of the Jews. 41Near the place where Jesus was crucified, was a garden and in the garden was a newly dug tomb, that had not been used before. 42And they laid Jesus there because of the Jews' preparation day, for the tomb was nearby.

Gospel of John: chapter 20

1Now on the first day of the week while it was yet still dark, Mary Magdalene came out to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the mouth of the tomb. 2At seeing this, she ran to where Peter and the other disciple that Jesus loved were, (John) and said to them; they have taken the Lord out of the tomb and we do not know where they have laid Him.

3Peter and the other disciple got up and left for the tomb. 4Both took off running, however, the other disciple outran Peter, coming first to the tomb. 5Looking in he saw the linen clothes lying there, yet he did not go in. 6Then Peter came and went into the tomb and saw the linen clothes lying there. 7And the napkin that was about His head, wrapped up in a place by itself. 8The other disciple then went into the tomb and he saw the burial clothes and also believed. 9For they did not yet understand the scripture that Jesus must be raised from the dead. 10Then the disciples left and went back to their own homes.

11But Mary Magdalene stood at the tomb weeping and as she wept, she looked inside the tomb. 12Seeing two angels in white, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot, where His body had laid. 13And the angels said to her; Woman, why are you weeping? She replied; They have taken away my Lord and I do not know where they have laid Him. 14When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but, she did not know it was Him. 15Then Jesus said to her; Woman, why do you weep, who do you seek? Supposing He was the caretaker, she said; Sir, if you have moved Him, tell me where you have laid Him and I will take Him away. 16Jesus said to her; Mary! She then turned and said to Him; Rabboni, which means Master. 17Jesus said to her; Do not touch Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But, go to My brethren and tell them, I have ascended to My God and Father and their God and Father. 18She then went and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord and the things He had spoken to her.

19On the same day, the first day of the week at evening. When the disciples had assembled behind closed doors, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood in the mist of them and said; Peace be with you. 20He then showed them the nail prints in His hands and the piercing of His side and the disciples rejoiced at seeing the Lord. 21Then Jesus said to them again; Peace be with you, as My Father has sent Me, so I am sending you. 22When He had said this, He breathed on them and said; Receive the Holy Spirit. 23Whomsoever sins you forgive - shall be forgiven unto them, but whomsoever sins you do not forgive - they shall be retained.

24Now Thomas, one of the twelve was not with them when Jesus appeared. 25And when the other disciples told him that they had seen the Lord. Thomas said to them, unless I put my fingers into the nail prints in His hands and put my hand into His side, I will not believe. 26Eight days later, His disciples were gathered and Thomas was with them and the doors being shut. Jesus appeared to them, standing in the midst and said; Peace be with you. 27He then said to Thomas; Reach out your finger and feel the nail prints in My hand and reach out your hand and place it into My side. Be not faithless, but believing. 28Thomas replied, My Lord and My God! 29Jesus then said to him; Because you have seen Me, you believe. Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believe. 30Jesus also did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, that are not recorded in this book. 31But these that are written so that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that believing you might have life through His name.

Gospel of John: chapter 21

1After this Jesus showed Himself to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. 2The disciples that were there were Simon-Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, John and James and two others, (most likely Philip and Andrew).

3Now Peter announced that he was going fishing and the other disciples went with him. So they got into a boat, but all that night they caught nothing. 4Now when morning had come, Jesus stood on the shore, however, the disciples did not know it was Him. 5Jesus said to them; children, do you have any fish? And they answered Him, No. 6He then replied; Cast your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some fish. When they had cast their net on the right side, they were not able to haul the net in, for the huge number of fish that was in it.

7Then the disciple that Jesus loved, (John, the writter of this gospel), said to Peter; it is the Lord. When Simon-Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his attire and jumped into the sea. 8While the other disciples came in the small boat, dragging the net with all the fishes in it, for they were only about three hundred feet from the shore. 9As soon as they had come to the shore, there was a fire of coals burning, with fish upon the fire and bread. 10Jesus spoke and said; Bring some of the fish that you have just caught 11So Simon-Peter went and hauled the net to land, in the net was one hundred fifty-three large fish and even though there was such a large number of fish the net was not broken.

12Jesus then said; Come and have breakfast. And no one dared to ask Him who He was, for they knew it was the Lord. 13Jesus then took the bread and gave it to them and likewise, He also did so with the fish. 14This was now the third time Jesus showed Himself to His disciples, after having risen from the dead.

15After they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon-Peter; Peter, do you love Me more than these? Peter replied, Yes Lord, You know that I love You as a brother. Jesus replied; Feed My lambs. 16A second time He said; Simon-Peter, do you love Me? Peter replied, Yes Lord; You know that I love You as a brother. Jesus said; Feed My sheep. 17And He said yet a third time; Simon-Peter, do you love Me, as a brother? Now Peter was grieved because He said the third time, do you love Me, as a brother. Peter replied; Lord, You know all things, You know that I love You. Jesus said to him; Feed My sheep.

18Truly I tell you {Peter}, when you were young you dresses yourself and went wherever you wished. But, when you become old, your hands will be shacked and you shall be carried where you do not wish to go. 19This Jesus spoke signifying the kind of death Peter should glorify God by. When Jesus had spoken this, He said; Follow Me. 20Then Peter, looking behind, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved and whom also had leaned on his breast at the Passover meal, (the disciple John), verse 13:23 following behind. 21Peter then said to Jesus; Lord and what about this man? 22Jesus said; If I wish him to remain until I come again, what is that to you? You, just follow Me. 23This saying then spread among many of the brethren, that this disciple was not going to die. Yet, Jesus did not say that he would not die.

24This is the disciple John, who witnessed and wrote these things and we know that his testimony is true. 25Jesus also did many other things, so many that if everyone was written down, it seems the world itself could not even contain all the writings. (NOTE: this can also be interpreted as, 'this physical world could not comprehend all the things that Jesus did').
