    The Gospel According to

    JOHNJ UST as a coin has two sides, both valid, so Jesus Christhas two natures,both valid. Luke presents Christ in His humanity asthe Son of Man; Johnportrays Him in His deity as the Son of God.Johns purpose is crystal clear: toset forth Christ in His deity inorder to spark believing faith in his readers.Johns gospel istopical as well as chronological, and it revolves aroundsevenmiracles and seven I am statements of Christ.

    Following an extended eyewitness description of the Upper Roommealand discourse, John records events leading up to theResurrection, the finalclimactic proof that Jesus is who He claimsto bethe Son of God.

    The title of the Fourth Gospel follows the same format as thetitles of thesynoptic Gospels: Kata Ioannen, According to John. Aswith the others, theword Gospel was added later. Ioannes is derivedfrom the Hebrew name Johanan, Yahweh Has Been Gracious.

    I N the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God, andthe Word was God. v. 14; Gen. 1:1

    2 He was in the beginning withGod. v. 18; 10:30

    3 All things were made throughHim, and without Him nothingwas

    made that was made. Col. 1:16

    4 In Him was life, and the lifewas the light of men. 1 John5:11

    5 And the light shines in thedarkness, and the darkness didnotcomprehend a it. 3:19; Gen. 1:35

    6 There was a man sent fromGod, whose name was John. v. 15

    7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,that all through him might believe. v. 29

    8 He was not that Light, but wassent to bear witness of thatLight.

    9 That was the true Light whichgives light to every man cominginto the world. a Is. 49:6

    10 He was in the world, and theworld was made through Him, andthe world did not know Him. v. 3

    11 He came to His own, a and Hisown b did not receive Him.19:516

    12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right tobecomechildren of God, to those who be-lieve in His name: 1 John3:1

    13 who were born, not of blood,nor of the will of the flesh, norof the will of man, but of God. 3:18

    14 And the Word became fleshand dwelt among us, and we beheldHisglory, the glory as of the only

    begotten of the Father, full of graceand truth. v. 1; 3:16;14:6; 18:37

    15 John bore witness of Him andcried out, saying, This was He ofwhom I said, He who comes afterme is preferred before me, for Hewasbefore me. vv. 68; 3:2230

    16 Anda

    of His fullness we haveall received, and grace for grace.17 Forthe law was given through

    Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Ex.20:1

    18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, awhois in the bosom of the Father, He hasdeclared Him. 14:9; Ex.33:20

    19 Now this is the testimony of

    John, when the Jews sent priestsand Levites from Jerusalem toaskhim, Who are you? 5:33

    20 He confessed, and did notdeny, but confessed, I am nottheChrist. Luke 3:15, 16

    21 And they asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? He said, Iamnot. Are you the Prophet?And he answered, No. Matt. 17:1013

    22 Then they said to him, Whoare you, that we may give ananswerto those who sent us? What do yousay about yourself?

    23 He said: I am

    1:5 aOr overcome 1:9 aOr That was the true Lightwhich, cominginto the world, gives light to everyman. 1:11 aThat is, His ownthings or domain bThatis, His own people 1:16 aNU-Text readsFor.1:18 aNU-Text reads only begotten God.

    1221 J OHN 1:50

    The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Is. 40:3

    Make straight the way of the LORD , a

    as the prophet Isaiah said.24 Now those who were sent were

    from the Pharisees.25 And they asked him, saying,

    Why then do you baptize if you arenot the Christ, nor Elijah,nor theProphet?

    26 John answered them, saying,I baptize with water, buttherestands One among you whom youdo not know. Luke 3:16

    27 It is He who, coming after me,is preferred before me, whosesan-dal strap I am not worthy to loose.

    28 These things were done inBethabara a beyond the Jordan,whereJohn was baptizing. 4:1

    29 The next day John saw Jesuscoming toward him, and said,Be-hold! The Lamb of God who takes

    away the sin of the world! 1 Pet. 1:1930 This is He of whom Isaid, Af- ter me comes a Man who is pre-ferred before me, for Hewas beforeme. v. 1

    31 I did not know Him; but thatHe should be revealed to Israel,therefore I came baptizing with wa- ter. Mal. 3:1; Matt. 3:6

    32 And John bore witness, saying,

    I saw the Spirit descending fromheaven like a dove, and Here-mained upon Him. Matt. 3:16

    33 I did not know Him, but Hewho sent me to baptize withwatersaid to me, Upon whom you see theSpirit descending, andremainingon Him, this is He who baptizeswith the Holy Spirit. Matt.3:11

    34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.11:27

    35 Again, the next day, John stoodwith two of his disciples.

    36 And looking at Jesus as Hewalked, he said, Behold the LambofGod! v. 29; 19:36; Ex. 12:46

    37 The two disciples heard himspeak, and they followedJesus.

    38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said tothem,What do you seek? They said to

    Him, Rabbi (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), whereareYou staying?

    39 He said to them, Come andsee. They came and saw where Hewasstaying, and remained withHim that day (now it was about the tenthhour).

    40 One of the two who heard Johnspeak, and followed Him, wasAn-drew, Simon Peters brother.

    41 He first found his own brotherSimon, and said to him, Wehavefound the Messiah (which is trans-lated, the Christ). 4:25;Matt. 4:18, 19

    42 And he brought him to Jesus.Now when Jesus looked at him,Hesaid, You are Simon the son of Jo-nah. a You shall be calledCephas(which is translated, A Stone).

    43 The following day Jesuswanted to go to Galilee, and HefoundPhilip and said to him, Fol-low Me. 6:5, 7; 12:21, 22; 14:8

    44 Now Philip was from Bethsa-ida, the city of Andrew andPeter.

    45 Philip found Nathanael andsaid to him, We have found Him ofwhom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wroteJesus ofNaza-reth, the son of Joseph.

    46 And Nathanael said to him,Can anything good come out ofNazareth? Philip said to him,Come and see. Matt. 2:23

    47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him,Be-hold, an Israelite indeed, in whomis no deceit! 1 Pet. 2:1,22

    48 Nathanael said to Him, Howdo You know me? Jesus answeredandsaid to him, Before Philipcalled you, when you were under the figtree, I saw you.

    49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, Rabbi, You are the Son ofGod! You are the King of Israel!

    50 Jesus answered and said tohim, Because I said to you, Isawyou under the fig tree, do you be-lieve? You will see greaterthings than these. 14:12

    51 And He said to him, Most as-suredly, I say to you, hereaftera youshall see heaven open, and the an-gels of God ascending anddescend-ing upon the Son of Man. Gen. 28:12

    2 On the third day there was awedding in Cana of Galilee, andthe mother of Jesus was there.

    2 Now both Jesus and His disci-ples were invited to thewedding.

    3 And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said toHim,They have no wine.

    4 Jesus said to her, Woman,what does your concern have to dowithMe? My hour has not yetcome. 7:30; 8:20; 12:27; 13:1

    5 His mother said to the ser- vants, Whatever He says to you,doit.

    6 Now there were set there sixwaterpots of stone, according tothemanner of purification of the Jews,containing twenty or thirtygallonsapiece. Mark 7:3

    7 Jesus said to them, Fill thewaterpots with water. Andtheyfilled them up to the brim.

    8 And He said to them, Drawsome out now, and take it tothemaster of the feast. And they tookit.

    9 When the master of the feasthad tasted the water that wasmadewine, and did not know where it

    came from (but the servants whohad drawn the water knew),themaster of the feast called the bride-groom. 4:46

    10 And he said to him, Everyman at the beginning sets outthegood wine, and when the guestshave well drunk, then theinferior.You have kept the good wine untilnow!

    11 This beginning of signs Jesusdid in Cana of Galilee, andmani-fested His glory; and His disciplesbelieved in Him. 1:14;4:54

    12 After this He went down to Ca-pernaum, He, His mother,Hisbrothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there manydays.

    13 Now the Passover of the Jewswas at hand, and Jesus went uptoJerusalem. Deut. 16:16

    14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheepanddoves, and the money changers do-ing business. Matt. 21:12,13

    15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out ofthe temple, with the sheep and theoxen, and poured out thechangersmoney and overturned the tables.

    16 And He said to those who solddoves, Take these things away!Donot make My Fathers house ahouse of merchandise! Luke 2:49

    17 Then His disciples remem-bered that it was written, Zeal forYour house has eaten a Me up. b

    18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, What sign do You showtous, since You do these things?

    19 Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and inthree days I will raise it up.

    20 Then the Jews said, It has taken forty-six years to buildthis temple, and will You raise it up in three days? Matt.26:61

    21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 20:12, 20

    22 Therefore, when He had risenfrom the dead, His disciplesremem-bered that He had said this to them; aand they believed theScripture and the word which Jesus had said.

    23 Now when He was in Jerusa-

    lem at the Passover, during thefeast, many believed in Hisnamewhen they saw the signs which Hedid. 3:2

    24 But Jesus did not commit Him-self to them, because He knewallmen, 21:17; Matt. 9:4

    25 and had no need that anyoneshould testify of man, for Heknewwhat was in man. 6:64; 16:30

    3 There was a man of the Phari-sees named Nicodemus, a rulerofthe Jews. 8:50, 51; 19:39422 This man came to Jesus by

    night and said to Him, Rabbi, weknow that You are a teachercomefrom God; for no one can do these

    1223 J OHN 3:30

    signs that You do unless God is withhim. 2:23; 9:16, 33

    3 Jesus answered and said tohim, Most assuredly, I say toyou,unless one is born again, he cannotsee the kingdom of God.1:12, 13

    4 Nicodemus said to Him, Howcan a man be born when he is old?Canhe enter a second time into hismothers womb and be born?

    5 Jesus answered, Most as-suredly, I say to you, unless oneisborn of water and the Spirit, he can-not enter the kingdom ofGod. 7:38

    6 That which is born of the fleshis flesh, and that which isborn of the Spirit is spirit. 6:63

    7 Do not marvel that I said toyou, You must be born again. v.3

    8 The wind blows where itwishes, and you hear the sound of it,but cannot tell where it comesfrom and where it goes. So isevery-one who is born of the Spirit. v. 6

    9 Nicodemus answered and said

    to Him, How can these things be?10 Jesus answered and saidtohim, Are you the teacher of Israel,and do not know thesethings?

    11 Most assuredly, I say to you,We speak what We know andtestifywhat We have seen, and you do notreceive Our witness. Matt.11:27

    12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe,how

    will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?13 No one hasascended to

    heaven but He who came downfrom heaven, that is, the Son of Manwho is in heaven. a Eph. 4:9

    14 And as Moses lifted up theserpent in the wilderness, evensomust the Son of Man be lifted up,

    15 that whoever believes in Himshould not perish but a haveeternallife. v. 36; 6:47

    16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begottenSon, that whoever believes in Himshould not perish but haveeverlast-ing life. 1 John 4:9

    17 For God did not send His Soninto the world to condemntheworld, but that the world throughHim might be saved. Luke9:56

    18 He who believes in Him is notcondemned; but he who doesnotbelieve is condemned already, be-cause he has not believed inthename of the only begotten Son of God. 5:24; 1 John 5:11, 12

    19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come intotheworld, and men loved darknessrather than light, becausetheirdeeds were evil. 1:4, 911; 8:44

    20 For everyone practicing evilhates the light and does not cometo the light, lest his deeds should beexposed. Eph. 5:11, 13

    21 But he who does the truthcomes to the light, that hisdeedsmay be clearly seen, that they havebeen done in God. 1 Cor.15:10

    22 After these things Jesus andHis disciples came into the landof Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized. 4:1

    23 Now John also was baptizingin Aenon near Salim, becausethere

    was much water there. And theycame and were baptized. Matt. 3:5,624 For John had not yet been

    thrown into prison. Luke 3:19, 2025 Then there arose a disputebe-

    tween some of Johns disciples and the Jews aboutpurification.

    26 And they came to John andsaid to him, Rabbi, He who waswithyou beyond the Jordan, to

    whom you have testifiedbehold,He is baptizing, and all arecoming to Him! v. 22; 4:1

    27 John answered and said, Aman can receive nothing unless ithasbeen given to him from heaven.

    28 You yourselves bear me wit-ness, that I said, I am nottheChrist, but, I have been sent beforeHim. 1:20

    29 He who has the bride is thebridegroom; but the friend ofthebridegroom, who stands and hearshim, rejoices greatly because ofthebridegrooms voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. Rev.21:9

    30 He must increase, but I mustdecrease.

    1224J OHN 3:31

    31 He who comes from above isabove all; he who is of the earthisearthly and speaks of the earth. Hewho comes from heaven isaboveall. v. 13; Matt. 28:18

    32 And what He has seen andheard, that He testifies; and noonereceives His testimony.

    33 He who has received His testi-mony has certified that God istrue.

    34 For He whom God has sentspeaks the words of God, for Goddoesnot give the Spirit by measure.

    35 The Father loves the Son, andhas given all things into Hishand.

    36 He who believes in the Sonhas everlasting life; and hewhodoes not believe the Son shall notsee life, but the wrath of Godabideson him. vv. 1618; 1 John 5:10

    4 Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heardthat Jesus made and baptized moredisciples than John 3:22, 26

    2 (though Jesus Himself did not

    baptize, but His disciples), 1 Cor. 1:143 He left Judea anddepartedagain to Galilee.

    4 But He needed to go throughSamaria.

    5 So He came to a city of Sa-maria which is called Sychar, nearthe plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Gen. 33:19;48:22

    6 Now Jacobs well was there.

    Jesus therefore, being wearied fromHis journey, sat thus by thewell. Itwas about the sixth hour.

    7 A woman of Samaria came todraw water. Jesus said to her,GiveMe a drink.

    8 For His disciples had goneaway into the city to buy food. v.32

    9 Then the woman of Samariasaid to Him, How is it that You,beinga Jew, ask a drink from me, aSamaritan woman? For Jews havenodealings with Samaritans.

    10 Jesus answered and said to her,If you knew the gift of God,andwho it is who says to you, Give Mea drink, youwould have askedHim,and He would have given you livingwater. 7:38; Is. 12:3;44:3

    11 The woman said to Him, Sir,You have nothing to draw with,and

    the well is deep. Where then do Youget that living water?

    12 Are You greater than our fa- ther Jacob, who gave us thewell,and drank from it himself, as wellas his sons and hislivestock?

    13 Jesusanswered and said to her,Whoever drinks of this waterwill thirst again,

    14 but whoever drinks of the wa- ter that I shall give him willnever thirst. But the water that I shall givehim will become in hima fountainof water springing up into everlast-ing life. 7:37,38

    15 The woman said to Him, Sir,give me this water, that I may notthirst, nor come here to draw. 6:34

    16 Jesus said to her, Go, call yourhusband, and come here.

    17 The woman answered andsaid, I have no husband. Jesussaid toher, You have well said, Ihave no husband,

    18 for you have had five hus-

    bands, and the one whom you nowhave is not your husband; inthatyou spoke truly.

    19 The woman said to Him, Sir, Iperceive that You are aprophet.

    20 Our fathers worshiped on thismountain, and you Jews say thatinJerusalem is the place where oneought to worship. Deut. 12:5,11

    21 Jesus said to her, Woman, be-

    lieve Me, the hour is coming whenyou will neither on thismountain,nor in Jerusalem, worship the Fa- ther.

    22 You worship what you do notknow; we know what we worship,forsalvation is of the Jews. Rom. 9:5

    23 But the hour is coming, andnow is, when the trueworshiperswill worship the Father in spirit and truth; for theFather is seeking such to worship Him.

    24 God is Spirit, and those whoworship Him must worship inspiritand truth. 2 Cor. 3:17

    25 The woman said to Him, Iknow that Messiah is coming (whoiscalled Christ). When He comes,He will tell us all things. 1:41

    26 Jesus said to her, I who speak to you am He. Matt. 26:63,64

    1225 J OHN 5:2

    27 And at this point His disciplescame, and they marveled thatHe talked with a woman; yet no onesaid, What do You seek? or,Whyare You talking with her?

    28 Thewoman then left her water-pot, went her way into the city,andsaid to the men,

    29 Come, see a Man who told meall things that I ever did. Couldthisbe the Christ? v. 25

    30 Then they went out of the cityand came to Him.

    31 In the meantime His disciplesurged Him, saying, Rabbi,eat.

    32 But He said to them, I havefood to eat of which you donotknow. v. 8

    33 Therefore the disciples said toone another, Has anyonebroughtHim anything to eat?

    34 Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sentMe,and to finish His work. 6:38

    35 Do you not say, There are still

    four months and then comes theharvest? Behold, I say to you,liftup your eyes and look at the fields,for they are already whitefor har- vest! Matt. 9:37, 38

    36 And he who reaps receiveswages, and gathers fruit foreternallife, that both he who sows and hewho reaps may rejoicetogether.

    37 For in this the saying is true:

    One sows and another reaps.38 I sent you to reap that forwhichyou have not labored; othershave labored, and you have enteredintotheir labors.

    39 And many of the Samaritansof that city believed in Himbecauseof the word of the woman who testi-fied, He told me all thatI ever did.

    40 So when the Samaritans hadcome to Him, they urged Him tostaywith them; and He stayed there two days.

    41 And many more believed be-cause of His own word. Luke4:32

    42 Then they said to the woman,Now we believe, not because ofwhat you said, for we ourselveshave heard Him and we know that thisis indeed the Christ, a the Saviorof the world. 1 John 4:14

    43 Now after the two days He de-parted from there and went toGal-ilee.

    44 For Jesus Himself testified thata prophet has no honor in hisowncountry. Matt. 13:57

    45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him,havingseen all the things He did in Jerusa-lem at the feast; forthey also hadgone to the feast. 2:13, 23; 3:2

    46 So Jesus came again to Canaof Galilee where He had madethewater wine. And there was a certainnobleman whose son was sickatCapernaum. 2:111

    47 When he heard that Jesus hadcome out of Judea into Galilee,hewent to Him and implored Him tocome down and heal his son, forhewas at the point of death.

    48 Then Jesus said to him, Un-less you people see signs andwon-ders, you will by no means believe.

    49 The nobleman said to Him,

    Sir, come down before my childdies!50 Jesus said to him, Goyour

    way; your son lives. So the manbelieved the word that Jesusspoke to him, and he went his way.

    51 And as he was now goingdown, his servants met him andtoldhim, saying, Your son lives!

    52 Then he inquired of them the

    hour when he got better. And theysaid to him, Yesterday at thesev-enth hour the fever left him.

    53 So the father knew that it wasat the same hour inwhichJesussaid to him, Your son lives. And hehimself believed, and hiswholehousehold. Matt. 9:513

    54 This again is the second signJesus did when He had come outof Judea into Galilee. 2:11

    5 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went uptoJerusalem. 2:13; Deut. 16:16

    2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, whichiscalled in Hebrew, Bethesda, a havingfive porches. Neh. 3:1, 32;12:39

    1226J OHN 5:3

    3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame,paralyzed,waiting for the moving of the water.

    4 For an angel went down at acertain time into the poolandstirred up the water; then whoeverstepped in first, after thestirring of the water, was made well of what-ever disease he had. av. 7

    5 Now a certain man was therewho had an infirmitythirty-eightyears.

    6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he alreadyhadbeen in that condition a long time,He said to him, Do you wantto bemade well?

    7 The sick man answered Him,Sir, I have no man to put me intothe pool when the water is stirredup; but while I am coming,anothersteps down before me. vv. 3, 4

    8 Jesus said to him, Rise, takeup your bed and walk. Matt.9:6

    9 And immediately the man wasmade well, took up his bed,andwalked. And that day was the Sab-bath. 9:14

    10 The Jews therefore said to himwho was cured, It is theSabbath;it is not lawful for you to carry yourbed. 9:16; Matt.12:10

    11 He answered them, He whomade me well said to me, Take upyourbed and walk.

    12 Then they asked him, Who is the Man who said to you, Takeupyour bed and walk ?

    13 But the one who was healeddid not know who it was, forJesushad withdrawn, a multitude beingin that place. Luke 13:14;22:51

    14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him,See,you have been made well. Sin nomore, lest a worse thing comeuponyou. 8:11

    15 The man departed and told theJews that it was Jesus whohadmade him well.

    16 For this reason the Jews perse-cuted Jesus, and sought tokill Him, abecause He had done these thingson the Sabbath. 8:37;10:39

    17 But Jesus answered them, My

    Father has been working until now,and I have been working.9:4

    18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, becauseHenot only broke the Sabbath, but alsosaid that God was His Father,mak-ing Himself equal with God. 10:30

    19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, Most assuredly, I saytoyou, the Son can do nothing of Him-self, but what He sees theFather do;for whatever He does, the Son alsodoes in like manner. v.30; 6:38

    20 For the Father loves the Son,and shows Him all things thatHeHimself does; and He will showHim greater works than these,thatyou may marvel. Matt. 3:17; 11:27

    21 For as the Father raises thedead and gives life to them, evenso the Son gives life to whom He will.

    22 For the Father judges no one,but has committed all judgmentto the Son, Acts 17:31; 2 Tim. 4:1

    23 that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father.Hewho does not honor the Son doesnot honor the Father who sentHim.

    24 Most assuredly, I say to you,he who hears My word andbelievesin Him who sent Me has everlastinglife, and shall not comeinto judg-ment, but has passed from deathinto life. 3:1618; Rom.8:1

    25 Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and nowis,when the dead will hear the voiceof the Son of God; and thosewhohear will live. Eph. 2:1, 5; Col. 2:13

    26 For as the Father has life inHimself, so He has granted theSon to have life in Himself, 1 Cor. 15:45

    27 and has given Him authority to execute judgment also,because

    He is the Son of Man. Dan. 7:13, 1428 Do not marvel at this; forthehour is coming in which all who arein the graves will hear Hisvoice

    29 and come forththose whohave done good, to the resurrectionoflife, and those who have done

    evil, to the resurrection of condem-nation. Dan. 12:2; Rev.20:1115

    30 I can of Myself do nothing. AsI hear, I judge; and Myjudgment isrighteous, because I do not seek Myown will but the willof the Fatherwho sent Me. v. 19; Matt. 26:39

    31 If I bear witness of Myself, Mywitness is not true. 8:14

    32 There is another who bearswitness of Me, and I know thatthewitness which He witnesses of Meis true. 1 John 5:6

    33 You have sent to John, and hehas borne witness to thetruth.

    34 Yet I do not receive testimonyfrom man, but I say thesethings thatyou may be saved.

    35 He was the burning and shin-ing lamp, and you were willingfor a time to rejoice in his light. Matt. 5:14

    36 But I have a greater witness than Johns; for the works whichtheFather has given Me to finishthe very works that I dobearwitness

    of Me, that the Father has sent Me.37 And the Father Himself,whosent Me, has testified of Me. Youhave neither heard His voice atany time, nor seen His form. 1 John 4:12

    38 But you do not have His wordabiding in you, because whomHesent, Him you do not believe.

    39 You search the Scriptures, forin them you think you haveeternal

    life; and these are they which testifyof Me. Is. 8:20; 34:16;Luke 24:2740 But you are not willing to

    come to Me that you may have life.41 I do not receive honorfrom

    men. 1 Thess. 2:642 But I know you, that you do

    not have the love of God in you.43 I have come in My Fathers

    name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his ownname,him you will receive. 1:12

    44 How can you believe, who re-ceive honor from one another,anddo not seek the honor that comesfrom the only God? 12:43

    45 Do not think that I shall ac-cuse you to the Father; there isonewho accuses youMoses, in whomyou trust. Rom. 2:12

    46 For if you believed Moses, you

    would believe Me; for he wroteabout Me. Deut. 18:15, 18

    47 But if you do not believe hiswritings, how will you believeMywords? Luke 16:29, 31

    6 After these things Jesus wentover the Sea of Galilee, whichisthe Sea of Tiberias. v. 23; 21:1

    2 Then a great multitude fol-lowed Him, because they sawHissigns which He performed on thosewho were diseased. Matt. 4:23;8:16

    3 And Jesus went up on themountain, and there He sat withHisdisciples.

    4 Now the Passover, a feast of theJews, was near. Lev. 23:5

    5 Then Jesus lifted up His eyes,and seeing a great multitudecom-ing toward Him, He said to Philip,Where shall we buy bread,that these may eat? Matt. 14:1421

    6 But this He said to test him, forHe Himself knew what Hewoulddo.

    7 Philip answered Him, Twohundred denarii worth of bread isnotsufficient for them, that everyone of them may have a little.

    8 One of His disciples, Andrew,Simon Peters brother, said toHim,

    9 There is a lad here who hasfive barley loaves and twosmallfish, but what are they among somany? 2 Kin. 4:43

    10 Then Jesus said, Make thepeople sit down. Now there wasmuchgrass in the place. So the mensat down, in number about fivethousand.

    11 And Jesus took the loaves, andwhen He had given thanks Hedis- tributed them to the disciples, and the disciples a to thosesitting down;and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. Luke22:19

    12 So when they were filled, Hesaid to His disciples, Gather upthefragments that remain, so that noth-ing is lost.

    13 Therefore they gathered themup, and filled twelve basketswith the fragments of the five barley

    41 The Jews then complainedabout Him, because He said, I am thebread which came down fromheaven. vv. 33, 35

    42 And they said, Is not thisJesus, the son of Joseph, whose fa-ther and mother we know? How isit then that He says, I havecomedown from heaven ? Matt. 13:55

    43 Jesus therefore answered andsaid to them, Do not murmuramongyourselves.

    44 No one cancome toMeunless the Father who sent Me drawshim;and I will raise him up at the lastday. Phil. 1:29; 1 Thess.2:13, 14

    45 It is written in the prophets,And they shall all be taught byGod. a Therefore everyone who hasheard and learned b from theFathercomes to Me. Is. 54:13

    46 Not that anyone has seen theFather, except He who is fromGod;He has seen the Father. 1:8

    47 Most assuredly, I say to you,he who believes in Me a haseverlast-ing life. 3:16, 18

    48 I am the bread of life. v. 3549 Your fathers ate the mannain

    the wilderness, and are dead.50 This is the bread whichcomes

    down from heaven, that one mayeat of it and not die. vv. 51,58

    51 I am the living bread whichcame down from heaven. Ifanyoneeats of this bread, he will live for-ever; and the bread thatI shall giveis My flesh, which I shall give for the life of theworld. vv. 35, 48

    52 The Jews therefore quarreledamong themselves, saying, Howcanthis Man give us His flesh toeat? 7:43; 9:16; 10:19

    53 Then Jesus said to them, Mostassuredly, I say to you, unlessyoueat the flesh of the Son of Man anddrink His blood, you have nolife inyou. Matt. 26:26

    54 Whoever eats My flesh anddrinks My blood has eternal life,andI will raise him up at the lastday. vv. 27, 40; 4:14

    55 For My flesh is food indeed, aand My blood is drinkindeed.

    56 He who eats My flesh and

    drinks My blood abides in Me, andI in him. 1 John 3:24; 4:15,16

    57 As the living Father sent Me,and I live because of theFather, sohe who feeds on Me will live be-cause of Me.

    58 This is the bread which camedown from heavennot as your fa-thers ate the manna, and are dead.He who eats this bread will livefor-ever. vv. 4951; Ex. 16:3135

    59 These things He said in thesynagogue as He taught inCaper-naum.

    60 Therefore many of His disci-ples, when they heard this,said,

    This is a hard saying; who can un-derstand it? v. 66

    61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complainedabout this, He said to them, Does this of-fend you?

    62 What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend whereHe

    was before? Acts 1:9; 2:32, 3363 It is the Spirit who giveslife; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak toyouarespirit, and theyare life. v. 68; 14:24; 2 Cor. 3:6

    64 But there are some of youwho do not believe. For Jesusknewfrom the beginning who they werewho did not believe, and whowouldbetray Him. v. 36; 2:24, 25; 13:11

    65 And He said, Therefore I havesaid to you that no one can cometoMe unless it has been granted tohim by My Father. vv. 37, 44,45

    66 From that time many of Hisdisciples went back and walkedwithHim no more.

    67 Then Jesus said to the twelve,Do you also want to goaway?

    68 But Simon Peter answered

    Him, Lord, to whom shall we go?You have the words of eternallife.69 Also we have come to believe

    and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. aMatt. 16:16

    not choose you, the twelve, and oneof you is a devil? 13:27;17:12

    71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot, theson of Simon, for it was hewhowould betray Him, being one of the twelve. 18:2, 3

    7 After these things Jesus walkedin Galilee; for He did not wanttowalk in Judea, because the Jews asought to kill Him. vv. 19, 25;5:18

    2 Now the Jews Feast of Taber-nacles was at hand. Lev. 23:34

    3 His brothers therefore said toHim, Depart from here and gointoJudea, that Your disciples also maysee the works that You aredoing.

    4 For no one does anything insecret while he himself seeks tobeknown openly. If You do these things, show Yourself to theworld.

    5 For even His brothers did notbelieve in Him. Ps. 69:8

    6 Then Jesus said to them, My time has not yet come, but yourtimeis always ready.

    7 The world cannot hate you,but it hates Me because I testify ofit that its works are evil. 15:19

    8 You go up to this feast. I amnot yet a going up to this feast,forMy time has not yet fully come.

    9 When He had said these things to them, He remained inGalilee.

    10 But when His brothers hadgone up, then He also went up to

    the feast, not openly, but as it werein secret.11 Then the Jewssought Him at

    the feast, and said, Where is He?12 And there wasmuchcomplain-

    ing among the people concerningHim. Some said, He is good;otherssaid, No, on the contrary,He deceives the people. 9:16; 10:19

    13 However, no one spoke openlyof Him for fear of the Jews.9:22

    14 Now about the middle of thefeast Jesus went up into thetempleand taught. Mark 6:34

    15 And the Jews marveled, say-ing, How does this Man know let-ters, having never studied?

    16 Jesus a answered them andsaid, My doctrine is not Mine,butHis who sent Me. 3:11

    17 If anyone wills to do His will,

    he shall know concerning the doc- trine, whether it is from Godorwhether I speak on My own au-thority.

    18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but Hewhoseeks the glory of the One who sentHim is true, and nounrighteousnessis in Him. v. 50; 2 Cor. 5:21

    19 Did not Moses give you thelaw, yet none of you keeps thelaw?Why do you seek to kill Me?

    20 The people answered and said,You have a demon. Who is seekingto kill You? 8:48, 52

    21 Jesus answered and said to them, I did one work, and youallmarvel.

    22 Moses therefore gave you cir-cumcision (not that it is fromMoses,but from the fathers), and you cir-cumcise a man on theSabbath.

    23 If a man receives circumci-sion on the Sabbath, so that thelawof Moses should not be broken, areyou angry with Me because Imadea man completely well on the Sab-bath? 5:8, 9, 16; Lev. 12:2,3

    24 Do not judge according to ap-pearance, but judge withrighteous judgment. Prov. 24:23

    25 Now some of them from Jeru-salem said, Is this not He whomthey seek to kill?

    26 But look! He speaks boldly,and they say nothing to Him. Dotherulersknow indeed that this is truly a the Christ? v. 48

    27 However, we know where thisMan is from; but when theChristcomes, no one knows where He isfrom. Matt. 2:46, 23

    28 Then Jesus cried out, as He taught in the temple, saying,Youboth know Me, and you knowwhere I am from; and I have notcome ofMyself, but He who sentMe is true, whom you do not know.

    31 And many of the people be-lieved in Him, and said, WhentheChrist comes, will He do more signs than these which this Manhasdone? Matt. 12:22, 23

    32 The Pharisees heard the crowdmurmuring thesethingsconcerningHim, and the Pharisees and thechief priests sentofficers to takeHim.

    33 Then Jesus said to them, a Ishall be with you a littlewhilelonger, and then I go to Him whosent Me. 13:33; Luke 24:51

    34 You will seek Me and not find Me, and where I am youcannotcome. Hos. 5:6

    35 Then the Jews said among themselves, Where does He intend togo that we shall not find Him?Does He intend to go to theDisper-sion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks?

    36 What is this thing that Hesaid, You will seek Me and notfindMe, and where I am you cannotcome ?

    37 On the last day, that great dayof the feast, Jesus stood andcriedout, saying, If anyone thirsts, lethim come to Me and drink.Is. 55:1

    38 He who believes in Me, as theScripture has said, out of hisheart

    will flow rivers of living water.39 But this He spoke concerningthe Spirit, whom those believing a inHim would receive; for theHoly bSpirit was not yet given, becauseJesus was not yet glorified.3:5

    40 Therefore many a from thecrowd, when they heard thissaying,said, Truly this is the Prophet. 1:21

    41 Others said, This is theChrist. But some said, Will theChristcome out of Galilee? 4:42

    42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from theseedof David and from the town of Beth-lehem, where David was? Mic.5:2

    43 So there was a division among the people because of Him. v.12

    Pharisees believed in Him?49 But this crowd that does not

    know the law is accursed.50 Nicodemus (he who came to

    Jesus by night, a being one of them)

    said to them, 3:1, 2; 19:3951 Does our law judge a man be-foreit hears him and knows whathe is doing? Deut. 1:16, 17; 19:15

    How can You say, You will be madefree ? Matt. 3:9

    34 Jesus answered them, Mostassuredly, I say to you, whoevercom-mits sin is a slave of sin. Rom. 6:6

    35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a sonabidesforever. Gal. 4:30

    36 Therefore if the Son makesyou free, you shall be freeindeed.

    37 I know that you are Abra-hams descendants, but you seektokill Me, because My word has noplace in you. 7:19

    38 I speak what I have seen withMy Father, and you do whatyouhave seen with a your father. 5:19

    39 They answered and said toHim, Abraham is our father.Jesussaid to them, If you were Abra-hams children, you would dotheworks of Abraham. Matt. 3:9

    40 But now you seek to kill Me,a Man who has told you thetruthwhich I heard from God. Abraham

    did not do this. vv. 26, 3741 You do the deeds of your fa- ther.Then they said to Him, Wewere not born of fornication; wehave oneFatherGod. Is. 63:16

    42 Jesus said to them, If Godwere your Father, you would loveMe,for I proceeded forth and camefrom God; nor have I come of My-self,but He sent Me. 1 John 5:1

    43 Why do you not understandMy speech? Because you are notableto listen to My word. 7:17

    44 You are of your father thedevil, and the desires of yourfatheryou want to do. He was a murdererfrom the beginning, and doesnotstand in the truth, because there isno truth in him. When hespeaks alie, he speaks from his own re-sources, for he is a liarand the fa- ther of it. 1 John 2:16, 17; 3:810, 15

    45 But because I tell the truth,you do not believe Me.

    46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, whydoyou not believe Me?

    47 He who is of God hears Godswords; therefore you do nothear,because you are not of God. 10:26

    48 Then the Jews answered and

    said to Him, Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan andhavea demon? 7:20; 10:20

    49 Jesus answered, I do not havea demon; but I honor My Father,andyou dishonor Me. 5:44

    50 And I do not seek My ownglory; there is One who seeks andjudges. 5:41; 7:18

    51 Most assuredly, I say to you,if anyone keeps My word heshallnever see death. 5:24; 11:25, 26

    52 Then the Jews said to Him,Now we know that You have a de-mon!Abraham is dead, and theprophets; and You say, If anyonekeeps Myword he shall never tastedeath. Heb. 11:13

    53 Are You greater than our fa- ther Abraham, who is dead? Andthe prophets are dead. Who do Youmake Yourself out to be? 19:7

    54 Jesus answered, If I honorMyself, My honor is nothing. ItisMy Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your


    God.55 Yet you have not known Him,but I know Him. And if I say,I donot know Him, I shall be a liar likeyou; but I do know Him andkeepHis word. 7:28, 29; 15:10

    56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw itandwas glad. Luke 10:24; Heb. 11:13

    57 Then the Jews said to Him,

    You are not yet fifty years old, andhave You seen Abraham?58Jesus said to them, Most as-

    suredly, I say to you, before Abra-ham was, I AM. Ex. 3:14

    59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hidHimself and went out of the temple, a going through the midst ofthem, and sopassed by. 10:31; 11:8; Luke 4:30

    4 Ia must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day;thenight is coming when no onecan work.

    5 As long as I am in the world,I am the light of the world.8:12

    6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground andmadeclay with the saliva; and Heanointed the eyes of the blind manwiththe clay. Mark 7:33; 8:23

    7 And He said to him, Go, washin the pool of Siloam (which istranslated, Sent). So he went andwashed, and came back seeing.

    8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seenthathe was blind a said, Is not this hewho sat and begged?

    9 Some said, This is he. Otherssaid, He is like him. a He said,Iam he.

    10 Therefore they said to him,How were your eyes opened?11 Heanswered and said, A Man

    called Jesus made clay andanointed my eyes and said to me,Go tothe pool of a Siloam andwash. So I went and washed, and Ireceivedsight. vv. 6, 7

    12 Then they said to him, Whereis He? He said, I do notknow.

    13 They brought him who for-merly was blind to the Pharisees.14Now it was a Sabbath when

    Jesus made the clay and opened hiseyes. 5:9, 10, 16

    15 Then the Pharisees also askedhim again how he had receivedhissight. He said to them, He put clayon my eyes, and I washed, andIsee. vv. 6, 7

    16 Therefore some of the Phari-sees said, This Man is notfromGod, because He does not keep theSabbath. Others said, How canaman who is a sinner do such signs?And there was a division amongthem. v. 33; 3:2; 7:12, 43; 10:19

    17 They said to the blind managain, What do you say aboutHimbecause He opened your eyes? Hesaid, He is a prophet. 4:19;6:14

    18 But the Jews did not believeconcerning him, that he hadbeenblind and received his sight, until they called the parents ofhim whohad received his sight.

    19 And they asked them, saying,Is this your son, who you saywasborn blind? How then does he nowsee?

    20 His parents answered themand said, We know that this isourson, and that he was born blind;

    21 but by what means he nowsees we do not know, or whoopened hiseyes we do not know. Heis of age; ask him. He will speakforhimself.

    22 His parents said these thingsbecause they feared the Jews,for the Jews had agreed already that if anyone confessed that HewasChrist, he would be put out of thesynagogue. v. 34; 7:13;16:2

    23 Therefore his parents said, Heis of age; ask him.

    24 So they again called the manwho was blind, and said tohim,Give God the glory! We know that this Man is a sinner. v. 16;Josh. 7:19

    25 He answered and said,Whether He is a sinner or not I donotknow. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.

    26 Then they said to him again,What did He do to you? Howdid

    He open your eyes?27 He answered them, I told youalready, andyou did not listen. Whydo you want to hear it again? Doyou alsowant to become His disci-ples? v. 11

    31 Now we know that God doesnot hear sinners; but if anyone isaworshiper of God and does His will,He hears him. Zech. 7:13

    32 Since the world began it hasbeen unheard of that anyoneopenedthe eyes of one who wasborn blind.

    33 If this Man were not fromGod, He could do nothing. v. 16;3:2

    34 They answered and said tohim, You were completely borninsins, and are you teaching us? And they cast him out. v. 2; Ps.51:5

    35 Jesus heard that they had casthim out; and when He hadfoundhim, He said to him, Do you be-lieve in the Son of God? a 1:7;10:36

    36 He answered and said, Whois He, Lord, that I may believeinHim?

    37 And Jesus said to him, Youhave both seen Him and it isHewhois talking with you. 4:26

    38 Then he said, Lord, I believe!

    And he worshiped Him. Matt. 8:239 And Jesus said, For judgmentIhave come into this world, that those who do not see may see, andthat those who see may be madeblind. 12:39, 40; Mark 8:18

    40 Then some of the Phariseeswho were with Him heard thesewords,and said to Him, Are weblind also? Rom. 2:19

    41 Jesus said to them, If youwere blind, you would have nosin;but now you say, We see. Thereforeyour sin remains. 15:22, 24;19:11

    10 Most assuredly, I say to you,he who does not enterthesheepfold by the door, but climbs upsome other way, the same isa thief and a robber.

    2 But he who enters by the dooris the shepherd of the sheep. v.11

    3 To him the doorkeeper opens,and the sheep hear his voice;andhe calls his own sheep by name andleads them out. v. 16;20:16

    4 And when he brings out hisown sheep, he goes before them;andthe sheep follow him, for theyknow his voice.

    5 Yet they will by no means fol-low a stranger, but will fleefrom

    him, for they do not know the voiceof strangers. 2 Cor.11:1315

    6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand thethingswhich He spoke to them.

    7 Then Jesus said to them again,Most assuredly, I say to you, Iam the door of the sheep. v. 1

    8 All who ever came before Me aare thieves and robbers, butthesheep did not hear them.

    9 I am the door. If anyone entersby Me, he will be saved, andwill goin and out and find pasture. 14:6

    10 The thief does not come ex-cept to steal, and to kill, and tode-stroy. I have come that they mayhave life, and that they mayhave itmore abundantly. 1:4; Col. 3:13

    11 I am the good shepherd. Thegood shepherd gives His life forthesheep. vv. 2, 14; 3:16; Is. 40:11

    12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who doesnotown the sheep, sees the wolf coming

    and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheepand scat- ters them. Zech. 11:16, 17

    13 The hireling flees because heis a hireling and does not careabout the sheep.

    14 I am the good shepherd; andI know My sheep, and am knownby Myown. vv. 2, 11; 2 Tim. 2:19

    15 As the Father knows Me, even

    so I know the Father; and I lay downMy life for the sheep.15:1316 And other sheep I have which

    are not of this fold; them also I mustbring, and they will hearMy voice;and there will be one flock and oneshepherd. Is. 42:6;Eph. 2:1318

    17 Therefore My Father lovesMe, because I lay down My life thatImay take it again. 5:20; Heb. 2:9

    18 No one takes it from Me, butI lay it down of Myself. I havepower to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. Thiscommand I havereceived from My Father. 2:19

    20 And many of them said, Hehas a demon and is mad. Why doyoulisten to Him? 7:20

    21 Others said, These are not thewords of one whohasa demon.Cana demon open the eyes of theblind? 9:6, 7; Ex. 4:11

    22 Now itwas the Feast of Dedica- tion in Jerusalem, and it waswinter.

    23 And Jesus walked in the tem-ple, in Solomons porch. Acts3:11

    24 Then the Jews surroundedHim and said to Him, How long doYoukeep us in doubt? If You are theChrist, tell us plainly.

    25 Jesus answered them, I toldyou, and you do not believe.Theworks that I do in My Fathers name, they bear witness of Me. v.38

    26 But you do not believe, be-cause you are not of My sheep, asIsaid to you. a vv. 1416

    27 My sheep hear My voice, andI know them, and they followMe.

    28 And I give them eternal life,

    and they shall never perish; neithershall anyone snatch them outof Myhand. 3:15, 16; 1 John 2:25

    29 My Father, who has giventhem to Me, is greater than all;andno one is able to snatch them out of My Fathers hand. 17:2, 6,12

    30 I and My Father are one. 14:931 Then the Jews took upstones

    again to stone Him. 8:59

    32 Jesus answered them, Manygood works I have shown you fromMyFather. For which of thoseworks do you stone Me?

    33 The Jews answered Him, say-ing, For a good work we donotstone You, but for blasphemy, andbecause You, being a Man,makeYourself God. 5:18; Matt. 9:3

    34 Jesus answered them, Is it notwritten in your law, I said,You are gods ?a Ps. 82:6

    35 If He called them gods, towhom the word of God came (and theScripture cannot be broken),

    36 do you say of Him whom theFather sanctified and sent intotheworld, You are blaspheming, be-cause I said, I am the Son ofGod?

    37 If I do not do the works of MyFather, do not believe Me; v.25

    38 but if I do, though you do notbelieve Me, believe the works,thatyou may know and believe a that theFather is in Me, and I inHim.

    39 Therefore they sought again toseize Him, but He escaped outof their hand. 7:30, 44; Luke 4:2830

    40 And He went away again be-yond the Jordan to the placewhereJohn was baptizing at first, and there He stayed. 1:28

    41 Then many came to Him andsaid, John performed no sign, butallthe things that John spoke about this Man were true. 1:29, 36

    42 And many believed in Him there. 2:2325; 8:30; 11:45

    11 Now a certain man was sick,Lazarus of Bethany, the townofMary and her sister Martha. 12:1

    2 It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oilandwipedHis feet with her hair, whosebrother Lazarus was sick.12:3

    3 Therefore the sisters sent to

    Him, saying, Lord, behold, hewhom You love is sick.4 When Jesusheard that, He

    said, This sickness is not untodeath, but for the glory of God,that the Son of God may be glorified through it. vv. 11, 14

    5 Now Jesus loved Martha andher sister and Lazarus.

    6 So, when He heard that he was

    sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was. 10:407Then after this He said to the

    disciples, Let us go to Judeaagain.

    8 The disciples said to Him,Rabbi, lately the Jews soughttostone You, and are You going thereagain? 8:59

    9 Jesus answered, Are there not

    twelve hours in the day? If anyonewalks in the day, he does notstum-ble, because he sees the light of thisworld. 9:4; 12:35; Is.9:2

    that He said to them, Our friendLazarus sleeps, but I go that Imaywake him up. Matt. 9:24; Acts 7:60

    12 Then His disciples said, Lord,if he sleeps he will getwell.

    13 However, Jesus spoke of hisdeath, but they thought that Hewasspeaking about taking rest in sleep.

    14 Then Jesus said to themplainly, Lazarus is dead. vv. 4,11

    15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that youmaybelieve. Nevertheless let us go tohim.

    16 Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to hisfellowdisciples,Let us also go, that we may diewith Him. 14:5;20:2429

    17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in thetomb four days.

    18 Now Bethany was near Jerusa-lem, about two miles a away.

    19 And many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha

    and Mary, to comfort them concern-ing their brother.20 ThenMartha, as soon as she

    heard that Jesus was coming, wentand met Him, but Mary wassittingin the house.

    21 Now Martha said to Jesus,Lord, if You had been here,mybrother would not have died.

    22 But even now I know that

    whatever You ask of God, God willgive You. v. 44; 9:3123 Jesussaid to her, Your brother

    will rise again.24 Martha said to Him, I know

    that he will rise again in the resur-rection at the last day.5:29; Dan. 12:2

    25 Jesus said to her, I am the res-urrection and the life. Hewho be-lieves in Me, though he may die, heshall live. 5:21; 6:39,40, 44

    26 And whoever lives and be-lieves in Me shall never die. Doyoubelieve this? 3:1416; 5:24

    27 She said to Him, Yes, Lord, Ibelieve that You are the Christ,theSon of God, who is to come into theworld. 1:41, 49; 4:25, 26;6:69

    28 And when she had said these things, she went her way andse-cretly called Maryher sister, saying,

    The Teacher has come and is call-ing for you.

    29 As soon as she heard that, shearose quickly and came toHim.

    30 Now Jesus had not yet comeinto the town, but was a in theplacewhere Martha met Him.

    31 Then the Jews who were withher in the house, andcomfortingher, when they saw that Mary roseup quickly and went out,followedher, saying, She is going to the tomb to weep there. a vv.19, 33

    32 Then, when Mary came where

    Jesus was, and saw Him, she felldown at His feet, saying toHim,Lord, if You had been here, mybrother would not have died. v.21

    33 Therefore, when Jesus saw herweeping, and the Jews whocamewith her weeping, He groaned in thespirit and was troubled.Matt. 26:38

    34 And He said, Where have youlaid him? They said to Him,Lord,

    come and see.35 Jesus wept. Luke 19:4136 Then the Jews said, Seehow

    He loved him! v. 537 And some of themsaid, Could

    not this Man, who opened the eyesof the blind, also have keptthis manfrom dying? 9:6, 7

    38 Then Jesus, again groaning inHimself, came to the tomb. Itwas a

    cave, and a stone lay against it. v. 3339 Jesus said, Take awaythestone. Martha, the sister of himwho was dead, said to Him,Lord,by this time there is a stench, for hehas been dead fourdays.

    40 Jesus said to her, Did I not say to you that if you wouldbelieve youwould see the glory of God? v. 26

    41 Then they took away the stone

    from the place where the dead manwas lying. a And Jesus liftedup Hiseyes and said, Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.Matt. 11:25

    43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loudvoice,Lazarus, come forth! 5:28, 29

    44 And he who had died came outbound hand and foot withgrave-clothes, and his face was wrappedwith a cloth. Jesus said tothem,Loose him, and let him go. 19:40

    45 Then many of the Jews whohad come to Mary, and had seen thethings Jesus did, believed in Him.

    46 But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them thethings Jesus did. 5:15

    47 Then the chief priests and thePharisees gathered a councilandsaid, What shall we do? For thisMan works many signs. 3:2; Ps.2:2

    48 If we let Him alone like this,everyone will believe in Him,and the Romans will come and takeaway both our place andnation.

    49 And one of them,Caiaphas,be-ing high priest that year, saidto them, You know nothing at all,

    50 nor do you consider that it isexpedient for us a that onemanshould die for the people, and not that the whole nation shouldper-ish. 18:14

    51 Now this he did not say on hisown authority; but being highpriest that year he prophesied that Jesuswould die for the nation,Matt. 1:21

    52 and not for that nation only,but also that He would gatherto-gether in one the children of Godwho were scattered abroad.10:16

    53 Then, from that day on, theyplotted to put Him to death.Matt. 26:4

    54 Therefore Jesus no longerwalked openly among the Jews,butwent from there into the countrynear the wilderness, to a citycalledEphraim, and there remained withHis disciples. 4:1, 3;7:1

    55 And the Passover of the Jewswas near, and many went fromthecountry up to Jerusalem before thePassover, to purifythemselves.

    56 Then they sought Jesus, andspoke among themselves astheystood in the temple, What do you

    thinkthat He will not come to thefeast? 7:11

    57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given acom-mand, that if anyone knew whereHe was, he should report it,that they might seize Him. Matt. 26:1416

    12 Then, six days before thePassover, Jesus came to Beth-any,where Lazarus was who hadbeen dead, a whom He had raisedfrom thedead. 11:1, 43, 44

    2 There they madeHim a supper;and Martha served, butLazaruswasone of those whosat at the tablewith Him. Mark 14:3; Luke10:3841

    3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil ofspikenard,anointed the feet of Jesus, andwiped His feet with herhair. And the house was filled with the fra-grance of the oil.11:2; Matt. 26:7

    4 But one of His disciples, JudasIscariot, Simons son, whowouldbetray Him, said, 13:26

    5 Why was this fragrant oil notsold for three hundred denarii aandgiven to the poor?

    6 This he said, not that he caredfor the poor, but because hewas a thief, and had the money box; andhe used to take what was putin it.

    7 But Jesus said, Let her alone;she has kept a this for the dayof Myburial. 19:39, 40

    8 For the poor you have withyou always, but Me you do nothavealways. Mark 14:7

    9 Now a great many of the Jewsknew that He was there; andtheycame, not for Jesus sake only, but that they might also seeLazarus,whom He had raised from the dead.

    10 But the chief priests plotted toput Lazarus to death also,Luke 16:31

    11 because on account of himmany of the Jews went awayandbelieved in Jesus. v. 18; 11:45

    16 His disciples did not under-stand these things at first; butwhenJesus was glorified, then they re-membered that these thingswerewritten about Him and that theyhad done these things to Him.14:26

    17 Therefore the people, whowere with Him when He calledLaz-

    met Him, because they heard thatHe had done this sign. v. 11

    25 He who loves his life will loseit, and he who hates his lifein thisworld will keep it for eternal life.

    26 If anyone serves Me, let him

    follow Me; and where I am, thereMy servant will be also. Ifanyoneserves Me, him My Father willhonor. Matt. 16:24

    Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,

    5 I am the vine, you are thebranches. Hewho abides in Me, andIin him, bears much fruit; for with-out Me you can do nothing. v.1

    16 You did not choose Me, but Ichose you and appointed youthatyou should go and bear fruit, andthat your fruit should remain,thatwhatever you ask the Father in Myname He may give you. 6:70

    17 These things I command you, that you love one another. v.12

    18 If the world hates you, you

    know that it hated Me before ithated you. 1 John 3:13

    19 If you were of the world, theworld would love its own. Yetbe-cause you are not of the world, butI chose you out of the world,there-fore the world hates you. 17:14

    20 Remember the word that Isaid to you, A servant is not greaterthan his master. If they persecutedMe, they will also persecuteyou. If they kept My word, they will keepyours also. 13:16; Ezek.3:7

    21 But all these things they will

    do to you for My names sake, be-cause they do not know Himwhosent Me. 16:2; Matt. 10:22

    you, that when the a time comes, youmay remember that I told youof them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning,because Iwas with you.

    5 But now I go away to Himwho sent Me, and none of you asksMe,Where are You going? 7:33

    6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrowhas filledyourheart. vv. 20, 22

    7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantagethat Igo away; for if I do not go away, theHelper will not come toyou; but if Idepart, I will send Him to you. 15:26

    8 And when He has come, Hewill convict the world of sin, and ofrighteousness, and of judgment:

    9 of sin, because they do not be-lieve in Me; Acts 2:22

    10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Menomore; 5:32; Acts 2:32

    sired to ask Him, and He said to them, Are you inquiringamongyourselves about what I said, A lit- tle while, and you willnot see Me;and again a little while, and you willsee Me?

    20 Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament,but the world will rejoice; and you willbe sorrowful, but yoursorrow willbe turned into joy. Luke 24:32, 41
