(Oversetting by William Tyndale, shifted by Micah Schmidt)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by Him and without Him was made nothing that was made.
4 In Him was life and the life was the light of men;
5 And the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 He came as a witness, to bear witness of the light, so that all men through him could believe.
8 He was not that light: but was to bear witness of the light.
9 That was a true light, which lightens all men that come into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world by Him was made: and yet he was slured.
11 He came among His own, and His own welcomed Him not.
12 But to as many as welcomed Him, to them gave He might to become the children of God, in that they believed on His Name,
13 who were born not by blood, nor by the will of the flesh, nor yet by the lust of a father, but by God.
14 And that Word was made flesh, and woned (Gr. worship-hutted) among us, and we saw the wulder of it, as the wulder of the only begotten Son of the Father, Who was full of truth and giveness.
15 John bore witness of him and cried, saying, "This was He of whom I spoke, Who, though He came after me, went before me: for He was before me."
16 From his fullness we all lissed and ested.
17 For the Teachings were given by Moses, milts truth were led out by Jesus Christ.
18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, Who is in the father's bosom, has matheled him.
19 John spoke, when the Jews sent bedemen and Levites from Jerusalem, to ask him, "Who are you?"
20 And he cwethed, and did not abow, and said openly, "I am not Christ."
21 And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" And he said, "I am not." Are you that foresteller? And he answered, "No."
22 Then said they unto him, "What are you, that we may give an answer to them that sent us? What say you of yourself?"
23 He said, "I am the call of a cleper in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as said the forespeaker Isaiah."
24 And they who were sent, were of the Freestanders.
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, "Why do you forwash, then, if you be not Christ, nor Elijah, neither a forespeaker?"
26 John answered them, saying, "I forwash with water, but One has come among you, Whom you know not.
27 He it is that comes after me, Who was before me, whose shoe string I am not worthy to unloose."
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John forwashed.
29 The next day, John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, "Behold, the lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world.
30 This is He of whom I said, 'After me comes a Man, Who went before me. For He was before me,
31 and I knew Him not, but so He could be broadcast to Israel, therefore have I come, forwashing with water.'"
32 And John bore witness, saying, "I saw the ghost downfare from heaven, like a dove, and abide upon Him, and I knew Him not:
33 But He that sent me to forwash in water, the same said unto me, 'Upon Whom you will see the ghost downfare, and stay still on Him, the Same is He who forwashes with the Holy Ghost.'
34 And I saw it, and bore witness, that this is the Son of God."
35 The next day after, John stood again, and two of his followers,
36 and he beheld Jesus as he walked by, and said, "Behold the lamb of God."
37 And the two followers heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
38 And Jesus went about, and saw them follow, and said unto them, "What seek you?" They said unto him, "Rabbi," which is to say, by oversetting, "Teacher: where do You dwell?"
39 He said unto them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he dwelt: and abode with Him that day. For it was about the tenth stound.
40 One of the two, that heard John speak, and followed Jesus, was Andrew; Simon Peter's brother.
41 The same found his brother Simon first, and said unto him, "We have found Messiah," which is by oversetting, Chosen.
42 And brought him to Jesus. And Jesus beheld him and said, "You are Simon, the son of Jonas, you will be called Cephas," which is by oversetting, a rock.
43 The day following, Jesus would go into Galilee, and found Philip, and said unto him, "Follow me."
44 Philip was of Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter.
45 And Philip found Nathaniel, and said unto him, "We have found him of whom Moses, in the law and the forespeakers, wrote: Jesus, the son of Joseph of Nazareth."
46 And Nathanael said unto him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him, and said of him, "Behold, a true Israelite, in whom is no guile."
48 Nathanael said unto him, "From where do You know me?" Jesus answered, and said unto him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
49 Nathaniel answered and said unto him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, "Since I said unto you, 'I saw thee under the fig tree,' you believe? You shall see greater things than these."
51 And He said unto him, "Truly, truly, I say unto you: hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the errand-ghosts of God upfaring, and downfaring over the Son of man."
1 And the third day, was there a wedding in Cana, a town of Galilee. And Jesus' mother was there.
2 And Jesus was called also, and His followers, unto the wedding.
3 And when the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said unto Him, "They have no wine."
4 Jesus said unto her, "Woman, what have I to do with thee? My tide is not yet come."
5 His mother said unto the thaners, "Whatsoever he sayeth unto you, do it."
6 And there were standing there, six waterpots of stone after the manner of the cleansing of the Jews, holding two or three firkins each.
7 And Jesus said unto them, "Fill the water pots with water." And they filled them up to the hard brim.
8 And he said unto them, "Draw out now, and bear unto the elder of the bash." And they bare it.
9 When the riker of the bash had tasted the water that was wended unto wine, and knew not whence it was—although the thaners which drew the water knew—He called the bridegroom,
10 and said unto him, "All men at the beginning set forth good wine; And when men be drunk, then that which is worse: But thou hast kept back the good wine until now."
11 This beginning of wonders did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and showed His wulder; and His followers believed on Him.
12 After that, went down He into Capernaum, and His mother, and His brethren, and His followers: But abode not many days there.
13 And the Jews' Easter was even at hand; And Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
14 and found sitting in the worship hut those that sold oxen and sheep, and doves, and tollers sitting.
15 And He made a whip of small cords, and drove them all out of the hut, with the sheep and oxen, and poured out the tollers' penny, and overthrew the boards.
16 And said unto them that sold doves, "Have these things hence, and make not my father's house an house of trade."
17 And his followers called to mind, how that it was written, "The earnestness of thine house, hath even eaten me."
18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, "What token showest thou unto us, seeing that thou dost these things?"
19 Jesus answered, and said unto them, "Wreck this worshipstead, and in three days I will rear it up again."
20 Then said the Jews, "Forty-six years was this worship hut a-building: and wilt thou raise it up in three days?"
21 But He spake of the worshipstead of His body.
22 As soon, therefore, as He was risen from death again, His followers called to mind what He thus said unto them. And they believed the Writing, and the words which Jesus had said.
23 When He was at Jerusalem, at Easter in the bash, many believed on His Name, when they saw his wonders which He did:
24 but Jesus put not himself in their hands, since he knew all men,
25 and needed not that anyone should witness of Him. For he knew what was in man.
1 There was a man of the Sunderholies named Nicodemus, a leader among the Jews.
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, "Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher which art come from God. For no man could do such wonders as thou doest, unless God were with him."
3 Jesus answered, and said unto him, "Truly, truly I say unto thee: unless one be born anew, one cannot see the rike of God."
4 Nicodemus said unto him, "How can one be born, when one is old? Can one infare into one's mother's womb and be born again?"
5 Jesus answered, "Truly, truly I say unto thee: Unless one be born of water, and of the Ghost, one cannot infare into the rike of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh, is flesh. And that which is born of the ghost, is ghost.
7 Wonder not that I said to thee, ye must be born anew.
8 The wind bloweth where it willeth, and thou hearest its loud: but canst not tell whence he cometh and whither he goeth. So is everyone that is born of the Ghost."
9 And Nicodemus answered and said unto Him, "How can these things be?"
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, "Art thou a teacher in Israel, and knowest not these things?
11 Truly, truly I say unto thee, we speak what we know, and witness what we have seen: And ye understand not our witness.
12 If, when I tell you earthly things, ye believe not: How should ye believe if I shall tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no one fareth up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, that is to say, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lift up the adder in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lift up,
15 that none that believeth in him die: but have everlasting life.
16 For God so loveth the world, that He hath given His only Son, for the will that none that believe in Him should die: But should have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world, to fordoom the world: But that the world, through Him, might be freed.
18 All that believe on Him shall not be fordoomed. But all that believe not, are fordoomed already, since they believe not in the Name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the fordooming: that light is come into the world, and men have loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For everyone that evil doeth, hateth the light: neither cometh to light, lest one's deeds should be spoken against.
21 But the one that doth truth, cometh to the light, that one's deeds might be known, how that they are wrought in God."
22 After these things came Jesus and His lore-knights into the Jews' land, and there he abode with them and awashed,
23 and John also awashed in Enon, besides Salim, since there was much water there, and they came, and were awashed.
24 For John was not yet cast into lagstead.
25 And there arose a fraign between John's followers and the Jews about cleansing.
26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, "Rabbi, behold He that was with thee beyond Jordan, to Whom thou barest witness, behold the same awasheth, and all folks come to him."
27 John answered, and said, "One can underfang nothing at all unless it be given to one from heaven.
28 Ye yourselves are witnesses, how that I said, 'I am not Christ: but am sent before Him.'
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: But the friend of the bridegroom which standeth by and heareth him, cheereth greatly of the bridegroom's call. Therefore this, my cheer, is fulfilled.
30 He must wax: and I must wane.
31 He that cometh from on high is above all: he that is of the earth is of the earth, and speaketh of the earth. He that cometh from heaven, is above all:
32 And what He hath seen and heard, that He witnesseth: but no one underfangeth His witness.
33 Howbeit, the one that hath underfanged His witness hath set to one's seal that God is true.
34 For He whom God hath sent, speaketh the words of God. For God giveth not the Ghost by mete.
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand.
36 All that believe on the Son, have everlasting life. And all that believe not the Son, shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on them."
1 As soon as the Lord had knowledge, how the Sunderholies had heard that Jesus made and awashed more followers than John -
2 although Jesus himself awashed not, but his followers -
3 He left Judea, and outfared again into Galilee.
4 And it was so that He needed to go through Samarland.
5 Then came He to a city of Samarland called Sychar, beside the owning that Jacob gave to his son Joseph,
6 and there was Jacob's well. Jesus, then wearied in his wayfaring, sat thus on the well. And it was about the sixth stound:
7 And there came a woman of Samarland to draw water. And Jesus said unto her, "Give me a drink" -
8 for His followers had gone away unto the town to buy food.
9 Then the woman of Samarland said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink of me, a Samarlander?" For the Jews meddle not with the Samarlanders.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, "If you knew the gift of God, and Who it is, that says to you, 'Give me a drink': you would have asked of Him, and he would have given you water of life."
11 The woman said unto Him, "Lord, You have nothing to draw it withal, and the well is deep: from whence, then, have You that water of life?
12 Are You greater than our father, Jacob, who gave us the well, and he himself drank thereof and his children and his cattle?"
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, "Whoever drinks of this water, shall thirst again.
14 But whosoever shall drink of the water that I shall give them, shall never be more thirsty: But the water that I shall give him, shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
15 The woman said unto him, "Lord, give me of that water, so I thirst not, nor come hither to draw."
16 Jesus said unto her, "Go and call your husband, and come hither."
17 The woman answered, and said to him, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You hast well spoken, 'I have no husband.'
18 For you have had five husbands, and he whom you now have, is not your husband. That quoth you truly."
19 The woman said unto him, "Lord, I insee that You are a forespeaker.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this hill: and y'all say that in Jerusalem is the stead where folks ought to worship."
21 Jesus said unto her, "Woman, believe me; The time comes, when y'all shall neither on this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Y'all worship what you know not: we know what we worship. For health comes of the Jews.
23 But the times comes, and is now, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in ghost, and in truth. For truly, such the Father seeks to worship him.
24 God is a ghost, and they who worship Him, must worship him in ghost, and truth."
25 The woman said unto him, "I know well that the Chosen One shall come, Who is called Christ. When He has come, He will tell us all things."
26 Jesus said unto her, "I Who speak unto you, am He."
27 And even at that time, came His lore-knights, and wonderd at how He talked with the woman. Yet no one said to Him, "How come," or "Why talk You with her?"
28 The woman then left her water pot behind her, and went her way into town, and said to the men there,
29 "Come, see a Man Who told me all things that ever I did. Is not He Christ?"
30 Then they went out of the chester, and came to Him.
31 And in the meanwhile His lore-knights bade him, saying, "Teacher, eat."
32 He said unto them, "I have food to eat that y'all know not of."
33 Then said the followers among themselves, "Has anyone brought Him food?"
34 Jesus said unto them, "My food is to do the will of Him that sent me. And to fulfill His work.
35 Say not, 'There are still four months, and then comes the harvest?' See, I say to you, lift up your eyes, and look to the fields: For they are white already for harvest.
36 And all that reap, nim afterleen; and gathers apple unto life forever: So that both the sower and the reaper could frolic together.
37 And herein is the saying true, 'That one sows; And another reaps.'
38 I sent you to reap that whereon you bestowed no strife. Other folks strove; And y'all have come into their strivings."
39 Many of the Samarlanders of that town believed on Him, for the woman's saying: which witnessed, "He told me everything that ever I did."
40 Then, when the Samarlanders had come to Him, they besought him that he would tarry with them. And he abode there two days.
41 And many more believed by his own words,
42 and said unto the woman, "Now we believe not by your saying: but since we have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is even indeed Christ, the Freer of the world."
43 After two days, He outfared thence, and went away into Galilee.
44 And Jesus Himself witnessed, that a forespeaker has no worth in his own leedship.
45 Then as soon as He had come into Galilee, the Galileers nam him, who had seen all the things that He did at Jerusalem at the merryness. For they also had gone to the merry day.
46 And Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where He wended water into wine. And there was a leader, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47 As soon as he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea, into Galilee, he went to Him, and besought him, that he would downfare, and heal his son: For he was even about to die.
48 Then said Jesus unto him, "Unless y'all see tokens and wonders, you cannot believe."
49 The leader said unto him, "Lord, come away before my child dies."
50 Jesus said to him, "Go your way, your son lives." And the man believed the words that Jesus had spoken unto him, and went his way.
51 And anon as he went on his way, his thaners met him, and told him, saying, "Your child lives."
52 Then asked he of them the stound when he began to amend. And they said unto him, "Yesterday, the seventh stound, the rithing left him."
53 And the father knew that it was the same stound in which Jesus said unto him, "Your son lives." And he believed, and all his household.
54 This is again the second wonder that Jesus did, after He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
1 After this there was a greatmeal of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep sellstead a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five halls.
3 In these lay a great dright of sick folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the bewaying of the water.
4 For an errandghost went down at a bestevened yeartide into the pool, and stirred the water: whosoever then first after the stirring of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever smittle he had.
5 And a besteved man was there, which had an illness thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that hode, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The sick man answered him, Lord, I have no man, when the water is stirred up, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And forthwith the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Day of Rest.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was healed, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had wended himself away, a dright being in that stead.
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the worship-stead, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
16 And therefore did the Jews dreve Jesus, and sought to slay him, forwhy he had done these things on the Day of Rest.
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
18 Therefore, the Jews sought the more to kill him, forwhy he not only had broken the Restday, but said also that God was his Father, making himself samesome with God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may wonder.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
22 For the Father deemeth no man, but hath handed up all deeming unto the Son:
23 That all men should upworth the Son, even as they upworth the Father. He that upwortheth not the Son upwortheth not the Father which hath sent him.
24 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into awerging; but is put through from death unto life.
25 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The stound is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the steven of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him wald to lay down deeming also, forwhy he is the Son of man.
28 Wonder not at this: for the stound is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his steven,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the rising of life; and they that have done evil, unto the rising of awerging.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I deem: and my deeming is fair; forwhy I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
34 But I fang on not witness-say from man: but these things I say, that ye might be nerred.
35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a yeartide to aglad in his light.
36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to beend, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his steven at any time, nor seen his shape.
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
39 Look through the holy writs; for in them ye think ye have everlasting life: and they are they which witness-say of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
41 I fang on not upworth from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye fang me on not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will fang on.
44 How can ye believe, which fang on upworth one of another, and seek not the upworth that cometh from God only?
45 Do not think that I will beguilt you to the Father: there is one that beguilteth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
Head 6 Edit
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
2 And a great dight followed him, forwhy they saw his wonderdeeds which he did on them that were ill.
3 And Jesus went up into a berg, and there he sat with his followers.
4 And the Fareover, a hightime of the Jews, was nigh.
5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great dright come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
6 And this he said to show him: for he himself knew what he would do.
7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not enoughsome for them, that every one of them may take a little.
8 One of his followers, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the stead. So the men sat down, in rime about five thousand.
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he doled out to the followers, and the followers to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his followers, Gather up the bits that are left over, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore, they gathered them together, and filled twelve cawls with the bits of the five barley loaves, which were left over and above unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the wonderdeed that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that forespeaker that should come into the world.
15 When Jesus therefore ongot that they would come and take him by might, to make him a king, he wended off again into a berg himself alone.
16 And when even was now come, his followers went down unto the sea,
17 And went into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21 Then they willingly nam him into the ship: and forthwith the ship was at the land whither they went.
22 The day following, when the folk which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, but that one whereinto his followers were entered, and that Jesus went not with his followers into the boat, but that his followers were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the stead where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
24 When the folk therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his followers, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Teacher, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not forwhy ye saw the wonders, but forwhy ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27 Derve not for the meat which swelteth, but for that meat which lasteth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What token shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the drystead; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, forwhy he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, other than the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 It is written in the forespeakers, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learnt of the Father, cometh unto me.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, but he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
47 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
48 I am that bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath forever life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the worshipstead, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his followers, when they had heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his followers murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this gall you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man stigh up where he was before?
63 It is the athom that quickeneth; the flesh doth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are athom, and they are life.
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should forrede him.
65 And he said, Therefore, said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, unless it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time many of his followers went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of everlasting life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should forrede him, being one of the twelve.
 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, forwhy the Jews sought to kill him.
 Now the Jews' hightime of moottents was at hand.
 His brethren therefore said unto him, wend off hence, and go into Judaea, that thy followers also may see the works that thou doest.
 For there is no man that doeth any thing in dighel, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, forwhy I witness of it, that the works thereof are evil.
 Go ye up unto this hightime: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in hiddle.
 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
 And there was much murmuring among the folks bemeeting him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he swiketh the people.
 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the worshipstead, and taught.
 And the Jews wondered, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?  Jesus answered them, and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me.
 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the beliefstuff, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own wuldor: but he that seeketh his wuldor that sent him, the same is true, and no unrightsomeness is in him.
 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
 The folk answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all wonder.
 Moses therefore gave unto you forsnithing; (not forwhy it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the Day of Rest forsnithe a man.
 If a man on the Day of Rest fang forsnithing on, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, forwhy I have made a man every whit whole on the Day of Rest?
 Deem not according to the outsee, but deem rightsome deeming.
 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?  Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
 Then cried Jesus in the worshipstead as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, forwhy his stound was not yet come.
 And many of the folk believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more wonders than these which this man hath done?
 The Pharisees heard that the folk murmured such things bemeeting him; and the Pharisees and the headpriests sent beadles to take him.
 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the tofared among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and wept, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
 He that believeth on me, as the writ hath said, out of his belly shall flow eas of living water.
 (But this spake he of the Athom, which they that believe on him should fang on: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; forwhy that Jesus was not yet wuldorened.)
 Many of the folk therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Forespeaker.
 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
 Hath not the writ said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
 So there was a split-through among the people forwhy of him.
 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
 Then came the beadles to the headpriests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
 The beadles answered, Never man spake like this man.
 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also swiken?
 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
 But this folk who knoweth not the law are awerged.
 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
 Doth our law deem any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no forespeaker.
 And every man went unto his own house.
 Jesus went unto the berg of Olives.
 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the folk came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in dernlyership; and when they had set her in the midst,
 They say unto him, Teacher, this woman was taken in dernlyership, even in the deed.
 Now Moses in the law bade us on, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
 This they said, forleading him, that they might have to beguilt him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
 So when they kept asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
 And they which heard it, being guiltlaid by their own inwit, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thy beguilters? hath no man awerged thee?
 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I thee thee: go, and sin no more.
 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest timestringkennstuff of thyself; thy timestringkennstuff is not true.
 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear ledger of myself, yet my timestringkenstuff is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
 Ye deem after the flesh; I deem no man.
 And yet if I deem, my deeming is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
 It is also written in your law, that the witnessing of two men is true.
 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the worshipstead: and no man laid hands on him; for his stound was not yet come.
 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? forwhy he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
 I have many things to say and to deem of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that glee him.
 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye abode in my word, then are ye my followers indeed;
 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in boundness to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
 Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Whosoever doeth sin is the thaner of sin.
 And the thaner abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, forwhy my word hath no stead in you.
 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of evil bysleep; we have one Father, even God.
 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
 Why do ye not understand my speech? even forwhy ye cannot hear my word.
 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, forwhy there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
 And forwhy I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
 Which of you overtelleth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, forwhy ye are not of God.
 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I upworth my Father, and ye do misworth me.
 And I seek not mine own wulder: there is one that seeketh and deemeth.
 Truly, truly, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the forespeakers; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the forespeakers are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
 Jesus answered, If I upworth myself, my upworth is nothing: it is my Father that upwortheth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
 Your father Abraham agladded to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
 Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the worshipstead, going through the midst of them, and so fared by.
 And as Jesus fared by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
 And his followers asked him, saying, Teacher, who did sin, this man, or his acennends, that he was born blind?
 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his acennends: but that the works of God should be made swetel in him.
 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he laid the eyes of the blind man on with the clay,
 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by oversetting, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
 Therefore, said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and healed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I fanged sight on.
 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
 And it was the Day of Rest when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had fanged his sight on. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
 Therefore, said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, forwhy he keepeth not the Day of Rest. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such wonders? And there was a split-through among them.
 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a forespeaker.
 But the Jews did not believe bemeeting him, that he had been blind, and fanged his sight on, until they called the acennends of him that had fanged his sight on.
 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
 His acennends answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
 These words spake his acennends, forwhy they feared the Jews: for the Jews had beshut already, that if any man did andette that he was Christ, he should be put out of the worshipstead.
 Therefore, said his acennends, He is of yearold; ask him.
 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his followers?
 Then they scorned him, and said, Thou art his follower; but we are Moses' followers.
 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a wondersome thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
 And Jesus said, For deeming I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin bliveth.
 Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that goeth in not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.  But he that goeth in in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.  To him the doorrman openeth; and the sheep hear his steven: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his steven.  And a fremd will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the steven of fremds.  This likeningtale spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.  Then said Jesus unto them again, Truly, truly, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be nerred, and shall go in and out, and find grazeland.  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to fordo: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more fullthroughly.  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.  But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.  The hireling fleeth, forwhy he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.  I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.  As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.  And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my steven; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.  Therefore, doth my Father love me, forwhy I lay down my life, that I might take it again.  No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This bodeword have I received of my Father.  There was a split-through therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.  And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?  Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?  And it was at Jerusalem the hightime of the thithergiving, and it was winter.  And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.  Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to twight? If thou be the Christ, tell us openly.  Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.  But ye believe not, forwhy ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.  My sheep hear my steven, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them everlasting life; and they shall never forfare, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.  I and my Father are one.  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?  The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for godsmear; and forwhy that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?  If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the writ cannot be broken;  Say ye of him, whom the Father hath hallowed, and sent into the world, Thou godsmearest; forwhy I said, I am the Son of God?  If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.  Therefore, they sought again to take him: but he withfared out of their hand,  And went away again beyond Jordan into the stead where John at first forwashed; and there he abode.  And many sought toflee unto him, and said, John did no wonder: but all things that John spake of this man were true.  And many believed on him there.
 Now some man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.  (It was that Mary which salved the Lord with salve, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)  Therefore, his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.  When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the wuldor of God, that the Son of God might be wuldorened thereby.  Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.  When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.  Then after that saith he to his followers, Let us go into Judaea again.  His followers say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?  Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, forwhy he seeth the light of this world.  But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, forwhy there is no light in him.  These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.  Then said his followers, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.  Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.  Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.  And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the offwill that ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.  Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow followers, Let us also go, that we may die with him.  Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.  Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:  And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to frover them bemeeting their brother.  Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.  Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.  But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.  Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.  Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the upstighing at the last day.  Jesus said unto her, I am the stighing, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?  She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.  And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister dernly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.  As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.  Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.  The Jews then which were with her in the house, and frovered her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.  Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.  When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the athom, and was dreved,  And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.  Jesus wept.  Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!  And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, and made it so that even this man should not have died?  Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.  Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.  Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the wuldor of God?  Then they took away the stone from the stead where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.  And I knew that thou hearest me always: but forwhy of the theod which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.  And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud steven, Lazarus, come forth.  And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.  Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.  But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.  Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a deemmoot, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many wonders.  If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and folkdom.  And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,  Nor hidge that it is needful; for us, that one man should die for the theod, and that the whole folkdom forefare not.  And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he forespoke that Jesus should die for that folkdom;  And not for that folkdom only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.  Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.  Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a land near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there went with his followers.  And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the land up to Jerusalem before the passover, to make themselves sifer.  Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the worshipstead, What think ye, that he will not come to the hightime?  Now both the headpriests and the Pharisees had given a bodeword, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.  There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the sitboard with him.  Then took Mary a pound of salve of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the smell of the salve.  Then saith one of his followers, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should forede him,  Why was not this salve sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?  This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but forwhy he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.  Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.  For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.  Many folk of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.  But the chief priests though over that they might put Lazarus also to death;  Forwhy that by grounds of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.  On the next day much people that were come to the hightime when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,  Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.  And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,  Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.  These things understood not his followers at the first: but when Jesus was wuldorened, then mould they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.  The folk therefore that were with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare witness .  For this cause the folk also met him, for that they heard that he had done this wonderdeed.  The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, onget ye how ye make no forthstride? behold, the world is gone after him.  And there were some Greeks among them that came up to worship at the hightime:  The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and wanted him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.  Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.  And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be wuldorened.  Truly, truly, I say unto you, unless a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much ovet.  He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life everlasting.  If any man theen me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my thane be: if any man theen me, him will my Father wuldoren.  Now is my soul dreved; and what shall I say? Father, nerr me from this stound: but for this gorund came I unto this stound.  Father, wuldoren thy name. Then came there a steven from heaven, saying, I have both wuldoren it, and will wuldor it again.  The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An errandghost spake to him.  Jesus answered and said, This steven came not forwhy of me, but for your sakes.  Now is the deeeming of this world: now shall the alder of this world be cast out.  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.  This he said, aspelling what death he should die.  The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?  Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.  While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and wended off, and did hide himself from them.  But though he had done so many wonderdeeds before them, yet they believed not on him:  That the saying of Esaias the forespeaker might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our heraldword? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been sweteled?  Therefore, they could not believe, forwhy that Esaias said again,  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be overwended, and I should heal them.  These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.  Nevertheless, among the headrulers also many believed on him; but forwhy of the Pharisees they did not say out their belief in him, lest they should be put out of the worshipstead:  For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.  Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.  And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to deem the world, but to nerr the world.  He that leaneth me off, and fangeth not my words on, hath one that deemeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall deem him in the last day.  For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a bodeword, what I should say, and what I should speak.  And I know that his bodeword is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
 now before the hightime of the passover, when jesus knew his stound was come that he should wend off out of this world unto the father, having loved his own which were in the woerld he loved theunytil the end.  And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to forrede him;  Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;  He riseth from supper, and laid aside his clothing; and took a towel, and girded himself.  After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the followers' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.  Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?  Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.  Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no share in me.  Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.  Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.  For he knew who should forrede him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.  So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his clothing, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?  Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.  For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.  Truly, truly, I say unto you, The thane is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.  If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.  I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the writ may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.  Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.  Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that fangeth on whomsoever I send fangeth on me; and he that fangeth on me fangeth on him that sent me.  When Jesus had thus said, he was derved in athom, and gave witness, and said, Truly, truly, I say unto you, that one of you shall forrede me.  Then the followers looked one on another, twighting of whom he spake.  Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his followers, whom Jesus loved.  Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.  He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?  Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.  And after the sop Satan went into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.  Now no man at the sitboard knew for what intent he spake this unto him.  For some of them thought, forwhy Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.  He then having fanged the sop on went forthwith out: and it was night.  Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man wuldorened, and God is wuldorened in him.  If God be wuldorened in him, God shall also wuldoren him in himself, and shall straightway wuldoren him.  Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.  A new bodeword I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my followers, if ye have love one to another.  Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.  Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.  Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Truly, truly, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast andsake me thrice.
 Let not your heart be dreved: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father's house are many lordhourses : if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to ready a stead for you.  And if I go and ready a stead for you, I will come again, and fang you on unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.  Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; forwhy I go unto my Father.  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be wuldorened in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  If ye love me, keep my bodewords.  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;  Even the Athom of truth; whom the world cannot receive, forwhy it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  I will not leave you froverless: I will come to you.  Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: forwhy I live, ye shall live also.  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.  He that hath my bodewords, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will swetel myself to him.  Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.  These things have I spoken unto you, being yet onbeing with you.  But the Froverer, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your munding, whatsoever I have said unto you.  Frith I leave with you, my frith I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be derved, neither let it be afraid.  Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would aglad, forwhy I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.  And now I have told you before it cometh about, that, when it is cometh about, ye might believe.  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.  But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me bodeword, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  Every bough in me that beareth not ovet he taketh away: and every bough that beareth ovet, pruneth, that it may bring forth more ovet.  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear ovet of itself, unless it abide in the vine; no more can ye, unless ye abide in me.  I am the vine, ye are the boughs: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much ovet: for without me ye can do nothing.  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a bough, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burnt.  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  Herein is my Father wuldorened, that ye bear much ovet; so shall ye be my followers.  As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: go ye on in my love.  If ye keep my bodewords, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's bodewords, and abide in his love.  These things have I spoken unto you, that my mirth might blive in you, and that your mirth might be full.  This is my bodeword, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I bebid you.  Henceforth I call you not thanes; for the thane knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and blesss you, that ye should go and bring forth ovet, and that your ovet should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  These things I bebid you, that ye love one another.  If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but forwhy ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  Mun the word that I said unto you, The thane is not greater than his lord. If they have dretch me, they will also dretch you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, forwhy they know not him that sent me.  If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.  He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  But this cometh to be, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  But when the Froverer is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Athom of truth, which cometh forth from the Father, he shall bear witness of me:  And ye also shall bear witness, forwhy ye have been with me from the beginning.
 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be belged.  They shall put you out of the worshipsteads: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God thanework.  And these things will they do unto you, forwhy they have not known the Father, nor me.  But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may mun that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, forwhy I was with you.  But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  But forwhy I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is needful for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Frover will not come unto you; but if I wend off, I will send him unto you.  And when he is come, he will scold the world of sin, and of rightsomeness, and of deeming:  Of sin, forwhy they believe not on me;  Of rightsomesness, forwhy I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  Of deeming, forwhy the atheling of this world is deemed.  I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  Howbeit when he, the Athom of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  He shall wuldoren me: for he shall fang on of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, forwhy I go to the Father.  Then said some of his followers among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Forwhy I go to the Father?  They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  Now Jesus knew that they were wishsome to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye ask about among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  Truly, truly, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and cwithe, but the world shall aglad: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be wended into mirth.  A woman when she is in birthgiving hath sorrow, forwhy her hour is come: but as soon as she is birthed out of the child, she muneth no more the yomer, for mirth that a man is born into the world.  And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall aglad, and your mirth no man taketh from you.  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Truly, truly, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall fang on, that your mirth may be full.  These things have I spoken unto you in likeningtales: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in likeningtales, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  For the Father himself loveth you, forwhy ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  His followers said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no likeningtale.  Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, forwhy the Father is with me.  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have frith. In the world ye shall have derst: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; wuldoren thy Son, that thy Son also may wuldoren thee:  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give everlasting life to as many as thou hast given him.  And this is life everlasting, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  I have wuldorened thee on the earth: I have beended the work which thou gavest me to do.  And now, O Father, wuldoren thou me with thine oewn self with the wuldor which I had with thee before the world was.  I have sweteled thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have fanged them on, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am wuldorened in them.  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of slitherness; that the writ might be fulfilled.  And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my mirth fulfilled in themselves.  I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, forwhy they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  Hallow them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  And the wuldor which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made fullcomely in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my wuldor, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the insetting of the world.  O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  And I have say out unto them thy name, and will say it forth: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his followers over the brook Kedron, where was a garden, into the which he went in, and his followers.  And Judas also, which forreded him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his followers.  Judas then, having underfanged a band of men and ambighters from the headpriests and Sunderholies, cometh thither with lights and torches and weapons.  Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?  They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which forreded him, stood with them.  As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.  Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.  Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:  That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.  Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's thane, and cut off his right ear. The thane's name was Malchus.  Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?  Then the band and the headman and beadles of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,  And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.  Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was betharfly that one man should die for the people.  And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another follower: that follower was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the thronestead of the high priest.  But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other follower, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.  Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's followers? He saith, I am not.  And the thanes and beadles stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.  The high priest then asked Jesus of his followers, and of his beliefstuff  Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the worshipstead, and in the worshiphouse, whither the Jews always go; and in dernness have I said nothing.  Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.  And when he had thus spoken, one of the beadles which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?  Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?  Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.  And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his followers? He andsook it, and said, I am not.  One of the thanes of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?  Peter then andsook again: and forthwith the cock crew.  Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of deeming: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the deemhall, lest they should be andhallowed; but that they might eat the passover.  Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What beguilting bring ye against this man?  They answered and said unto him, If he were not a wrongdoer, we would not have brought him up unto thee.  Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and deem him by your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:  That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, aspelling what death he should die.  Then Pilate went into the deemhall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?  Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?  Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own folkdom and the headpriests have bore thee over unto me: what hast thou done?  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my thanes fight, that I should not be given over to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.  Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my steven.  Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no wrong at all.  But ye have a sid, that I should let go unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I let back unto you the King of the Jews?  Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and whipped him.  And the heremen platted a helm of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,  And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.  Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.  Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!  When the headpriests therefore and beadles saw him, they cried out, saying, Roodfasten him, roodfasten him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and roodfasten him: for I find no wrong in him.  The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, forwhy he made himself the Son of God.  When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;  And went again into the deemhall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.  Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have wald to roodfasten thee, and have wald to let thee go?  Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no wald at all against me, unless it were given thee from above: therefore he that gave me over unto thee hath the greater sin.  And from thenceforth Pilate sought to let him go: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.  When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the deemseat in a stead that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.  And it was the readymaking of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!  But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, roodfasten him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I roodfasten your King? The chief priest answered, We have no king but Caesar.  Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be roodfastened. And they took Jesus, and led him away.  And he bearing his rood went forth into a stead called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:  Where they roodfastened him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.  And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the rood. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.  This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was roodfastened was nigh to the chester: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.  Then said the headpriests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.  Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.  Then the heremen, when they had roodfastened Jesus, took his clothing, and made four parts, to every hereman a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.  They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the writ might be fulfilled, which saith, They totweemed my cloak among them, and for my clothing they did cast lots. These things therefore the heremen did.  Now there stood by the rood of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.  When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the follower standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!  Then saith he to the follower, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that follower took her unto his own home.  After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now fullworked, that the writ might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.  Now there was set a vessel full of sourwater: and they filled a spunge with sourwater, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.  When Jesus therefore had gotten the sourwater, he said, It is ended: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.  The Jews therefore, forwhy it was the readymaking, that the bodies should not blive upon the rood on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was a high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.  Then came the heremen, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was roodfastened with him.  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:  But one of the hermen with a spear poked his side through, and forthwith came there out blood and water.  And he that saw it bears witness, and his witness is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.  For these things were done, that the writ should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.  And again another writ saith, They shall look on him whom they jabbed through.  And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a follower of Jesus, but dernly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.  And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred-pound weight.  Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.  Now in the place where he was roodfastened there was a garden; and in the garden a new tombstead, wherein was never man yet laid.  There laid they Jesus therefore forwhy of the Jews' readying day; for the tombstead was nigh at hand.
 The first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the tombstead, and saw the stone taken away from it.  Then she ran, and came to Simon Peter, and to the other follower, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the tombstead, and we know not where they have laid him.  Peter therefore went forth, and that other follower, and came to the tombstead.  So they ran both together: and the other follower did outrun Peter, and came first to the tombstead.  And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.  Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the tombstead, and saw the linen clothes lie,  And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a spot by itself.  Then went in also that other follower, which came first to the tombstead, and he saw, and believed.  For as yet they knew not the writ, that he must rise again from the dead.  Then the followers went away again unto their own home.  But Mary stood without at the tombstead weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the tombstead,  And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.  And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Forwhy they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.  And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.  Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She whorve herself about, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet stought up to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I stigh unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.  Mary Magdalene came and told the followers that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.  Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the followers were gathered together for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Frith be unto you.  And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the followers glad, when they saw the Lord.  Then said Jesus to them again, Frith be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.  And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:  Whose soever sins ye forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose soever sins ye keep, they are kept.  But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.  The other followers therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Unless I shall see in his hands the wounds of the nails, and put my finger into the wounds of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.  And after eight days again his followers were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Frith be unto you.  Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.  And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.  Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, forwhy thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.  And many other tockendeeds truly did Jesus in the theresomeness of his followers, which are not written in this book:  But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the followers at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.  There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his followers.  Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and went into a ship forthwith; and that night they caught nothing.  But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the followers knew not that it was Jesus.  Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.  And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the dright of fishes.  Therefore, that follower whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.  And the other followers came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.  As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.  Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.  Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, and hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.  Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the followers durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.  Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.  This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his followers, after that he was risen from the dead.  So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.  He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.  He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved forwhy he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.  Truly, truly, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.  This spake he, signifying by what death he should wuldoren God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.  Then Peter, turning about, seeth the follower whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that forredeth thee?  Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?  Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.  Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that follower should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?  This is the follower which witnessed these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his witness is true.  And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I ween that even the world itself could not inhold the books that should be written. So be it.
