Gospel of John 11-15

John 11:1

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of

Mary and her sister Martha.

John 11:2

(It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped

his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

John 11:3

Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom

thou lovest is sick.

John 11:4

When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but

for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

John 11:5

Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

John 11:6

When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still

in the same place where he was.

John 11:7

Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea


John 11:8

His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone

thee; and goest thou thither again?

John 11:9

Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man

walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this


John 11:10

But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no

light in him.

John 11:11

These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend

Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

John 11:12

Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

John 11:13

Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken

of taking of rest in sleep.

John 11:14

Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

John 11:15

And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye

may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

John 11:16

Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples,

Let us also go, that we may die with him.

John 11:17

Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four

days already.

John 11:18

Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

John 11:19

And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them

concerning their brother.

John 11:20

Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met

him: but Mary sat still in the house.

John 11:21

Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my

brother had not died.

John 11:22

But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will

give it thee.

John 11:23

Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

John 11:24

Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the

resurrection at the last day.

John 11:25

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that

believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

John 11:26

And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest

thou this?

John 11:27

She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ,

the Son of God, which should come into the world.

John 11:28

And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her

sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

John 11:29

As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

John 11:30

Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where

Martha met him.

John 11:31

The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her,

when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed

her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

John 11:32

Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down

at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my

brother had not died.

John 11:33

When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which

came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,

John 11:34

And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and


John 11:35

Jesus wept.

John 11:36

Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

John 11:37

And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of

the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

John 11:38

Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was

a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

John 11:39

Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that

was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath

been dead four days.

John 11:40

Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest

believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

John 11:41

Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid.

And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that

thou hast heard me.

John 11:42

And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people

which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent


John 11:43

And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus,

come forth.

John 11:44

And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with

graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith

unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

John 11:45

Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things

which Jesus did, believed on him.

John 11:46

But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what

things Jesus had done.

John 11:47

Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and

said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

John 11:48

If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans

shall come and take away both our place and nation.

John 11:49

And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same

year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

John 11:50

Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for

the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

John 11:51

And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he

prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

John 11:52

And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together

in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

John 11:53

Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to


John 11:54

Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence

unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim,

and there continued with his disciples.

John 11:55

And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the

country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

John 11:56

Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood

in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

John 11:57

Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment,

that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they

might take him.

John 12:1

Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where

Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

John 12:2

There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one

of them that sat at the table with him.

John 12:3

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and

anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the

house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

John 12:4

Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which

should betray him,

John 12:5

Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to

the poor?

John 12:6

This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a

thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

John 12:7

Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath

she kept this.

John 12:8

For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

John 12:9

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they

came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also,

whom he had raised from the dead.

John 12:10

But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to


John 12:11

Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and

believed on Jesus.

John 12:12

On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they

heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

John 12:13

Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried,

Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the


John 12:14

And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is


John 12:15

Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an

ass's colt.

John 12:16

These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when

Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were

written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

John 12:17

The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of

his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

John 12:18

For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he

had done this miracle.

John 12:19

The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye

prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

John 12:20

And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at

the feast:

John 12:21

The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee,

and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

John 12:22

Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell


John 12:23

And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of

man should be glorified.

John 12:24

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the

ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth

much fruit.

John 12:25

He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in

this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

John 12:26

If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall

also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

John 12:27

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from

this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

John 12:28

Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven,

saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

John 12:29

The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it

thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

John 12:30

Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for

your sakes.

John 12:31

Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world

be cast out.

John 12:32

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

John 12:33

This he said, signifying what death he should die.

John 12:34

The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ

abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted

up? who is this Son of man?

John 12:35

Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you.

Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he

that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

John 12:36

While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the

children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did

hide himself from them.

John 12:37

But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they

believed not on him:

John 12:38

That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he

spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm

of the Lord been revealed?

John 12:39

Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

John 12:40

He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they

should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and

be converted, and I should heal them.

John 12:41

These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

John 12:42

Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but

because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should

be put out of the synagogue:

John 12:43

For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

John 12:44

Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me,

but on him that sent me.

John 12:45

And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

John 12:46

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me

should not abide in darkness.

John 12:47

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I

came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

John 12:48

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that

judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in

the last day.

John 12:49

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he

gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

John 12:50

And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I

speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

John 13:1

Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour

was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father,

having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the


John 13:2

And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of

Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

John 13:3

Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands,

and that he was come from God, and went to God;

John 13:4

He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel,

and girded himself.

John 13:5

After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the

disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was


John 13:6

Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost

thou wash my feet?

John 13:7

Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but

thou shalt know hereafter.

John 13:8

Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered

him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

John 13:9

Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands

and my head.

John 13:10

Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his

feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

John 13:11

For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all


John 13:12

So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and

was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to


John 13:13

Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

John 13:14

If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought

to wash one another's feet.

John 13:15

For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to


John 13:16

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his

lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

John 13:17

If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

John 13:18

I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the

scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted

up his heel against me.

John 13:19

Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may

believe that I am he.

John 13:20

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send

receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

John 13:21

When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified,

and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall

betray me.

John 13:22

Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.

John 13:23

Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom

Jesus loved.

John 13:24

Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it

should be of whom he spake.

John 13:25

He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

John 13:26

Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have

dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas

Iscariot, the son of Simon.

John 13:27

And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him,

That thou doest, do quickly.

John 13:28

Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

John 13:29

For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had

said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the

feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

John 13:30

He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was


John 13:31

Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man

glorified, and God is glorified in him.

John 13:32

If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself,

and shall straightway glorify him.

John 13:33

Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me:

and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I

say to you.

John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I

have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John 13:35

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love

one to another.

John 13:36

Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered

him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt

follow me afterwards.

John 13:37

Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay

down my life for thy sake.

John 13:38

Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily,

verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast

denied me thrice.

John 14:1

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

John 14:2

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would

have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:3

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and

receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

John 14:4

And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:5

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how

can we know the way?

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man

cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:7

If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from

henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

John 14:8

Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

John 14:9

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast

thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;

and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

John 14:10

Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the

words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father

that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

John 14:11

Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else

believe me for the very works' sake.

John 14:12

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works

that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;

because I go unto my Father.

John 14:13

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the

Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14

If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

John 14:15

If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,

that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:17

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it

seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth

with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:18

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:19

Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:

because I live, ye shall live also.

John 14:20

At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I

in you.

John 14:21

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth

me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will

love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:22

Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt

manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

John 14:23

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my

words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and

make our abode with him.

John 14:24

He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye

hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

John 14:25

These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send

in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to

your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world

giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let

it be afraid.

John 14:28

Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto

you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the

Father: for my Father is greater than I.

John 14:29

And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come

to pass, ye might believe.

John 14:30

Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world

cometh, and hath nothing in me.

John 14:31

But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father

gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

John 15:1

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

John 15:2

Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every

branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth

more fruit.

John 15:3

Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

John 15:4

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,

except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 15:5

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in

him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do


John 15:6

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is

withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they

are burned.

John 15:7

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye

will, and it shall be done unto you.

John 15:8

Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye

be my disciples.

John 15:9

As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my


John 15:10

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have

kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

John 15:11

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you,

and that your joy might be full.

John 15:12

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for

his friends.

John 15:14

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

John 15:15

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what

his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I

have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

John 15:16

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that

ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should

remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may

give it you.

John 15:17

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:18

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

John 15:19

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye

are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world,

therefore the world hateth you.

John 15:20

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater

than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute

you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

John 15:21

But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake,

because they know not him that sent me.

John 15:22

If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now

they have no cloke for their sin.

John 15:23

He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

John 15:24

If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they

had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my


John 15:25

But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is

written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

John 15:26

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the

Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father,

he shall testify of me:

John 15:27

And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the
