These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that
whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known
the Father, nor me.
But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye
may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not
unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me,
Whither goest thou?
But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go
away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but
if I depart, I will send him unto you.
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgment:
Of sin, because they believe not on me;
Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into
all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall
hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it
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, because I go to the Father.
Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that
he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again,
a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the 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 desirous to ask him, and said unto
them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while,
and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see
Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but
the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow
shall be turned into joy.
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come:
but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more
the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your
heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive,
that your joy may be full.
These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh,
when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you
plainly of the Father.
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, because 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 disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and
speakest no proverb.
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
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, because the Father is with me.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have
overcome the world.
These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,
Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may
As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give
eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true
God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which
thou gavest me to do.
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory
which I had with thee before the world was.
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of
the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have
kept thy word.
Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are
For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they
have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee,
and they have believed that thou didst send me.
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 glorified in
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 perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that
they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because
they are not of the world, even as I am not of the 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.
Sanctify 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 glory 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 perfect 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 glory, which thou hast given me:
for thou lovedst me before the foundation 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 declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the
love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples
over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered,
and his disciples.
And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus
ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief
priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and
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 betrayed 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
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
servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant'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 captain and officers 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
expedient that one man should die for the people.
And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that
disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into
the palace of the high priest.
But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other
disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her
that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou
also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.
And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of
coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood
with them, and warmed himself.
The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his
Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the
synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in
secret have I said nothing.
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 officers 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 disciples? He denied it, and said,
I am not.
One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear
Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it
was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest
they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye
against this man?
They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we
would not have delivered him up unto thee.
Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to
your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us
to put any man to death:
That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake,
signifying what death he should die.
Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall 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 nation and the chief priests
have delivered thee 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 servants fight, that I should not be
delivered 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 voice.
Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he
went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no
fault at all.
But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the
passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the
Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now
Barabbas was a robber.
Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
And the soldiers platted a crown 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 chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried
out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take
ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die,
because he made himself the Son of God.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
And went again into the judgment hall, 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 power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except
it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto
thee hath the greater sin.
And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried
out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend:
whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and
sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement,
but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
And it was the preparation 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, crucify him. Pilate
saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priest
answered, We have no king but Caesar.
Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they
took Jesus, and led him away.
And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of
a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
Where they crucified 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 cross. 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
crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and
Greek, and Latin.
Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The
King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments,
and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now
the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast
lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be
fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my
vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
Now there stood by the cross 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 disciple standing by,
whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour
that disciple took her unto his own home.
After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that
the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge
with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is
finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies
should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that
sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might
be broken, and that they might be taken away.
Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the
other which was crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they
brake not his legs:
But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith
came there out blood and water.
And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he
knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A
bone of him shall not be broken.
And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they
And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but
secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take
away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore,
and took the body of Jesus.
And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by
night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred
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 crucified there was a garden; and in
the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day;
for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was
yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the
Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other
disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away
the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid
Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the
So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter,
and came first to the sepulchre.
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 sepulchre,
and seeth the linen clothes lie,
And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen
clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the
sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from
Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she
stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
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,
Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have
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 turned herself, and saith unto him,
Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my
Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my
Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples 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 disciples were assembled for fear of
the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them,
Peace be unto you.
And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side.
Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace 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 remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose
soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when
The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord.
But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of
the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust
my hand into his side, I will not believe.
And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with
them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst,
and said, Peace be unto you.
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, because thou hast seen me, thou hast
believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his
disciples, 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
After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples 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 disciples.
Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We
also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship
immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the
disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered
And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship,
and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to
draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the
Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his
fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into
And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far
from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with
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 disciples durst
ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish
This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his
disciples, 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 because he said unto him the third time, Lovest
thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
Verily, verily, 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 glorify God. And
when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved
following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord,
which is he that betrayeth thee?
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 disciple
should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but,
If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote
these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if
they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world
itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
