Book 50 John
THE HOLY GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST ACCORDING TO ST. JOHN
St. John the Apostle and Evangelist was the son of Zebedee and Salome,
John Chapter 1
The divinity and incarnation of Christ. John bears witness of him. He
1:1. In the beginning was the Word: and the Word was with God: and the
1:2. The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that
1:4. In him was life: and the life was the light of men.
1:5. And the light shineth in darkness: and the darkness did not
1:6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
1:7. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that
1:8. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light.
1:9. That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh
1:10. He was in the world: and the world was made by him: and the world
1:11. He came unto his own: and his own received him not.
1:12. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the
1:13. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
1:14. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we saw his
1:15. John beareth witness of him and crieth out, saying: This was he of
1:16. And of his fulness we all have received: and grace for grace.
1:17. For the law was given by Moses: grace and truth came by Jesus
1:18. No man hath seen God at any time: the only begotten Son who is in
1:19. And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent from
1:20. And he confessed and did not deny: and he confessed: I am not the
1:21. And they asked him: What then? Art thou Elias? And he said: I am
1:22. They said therefore unto him: Who art thou, that we may give an
1:23. He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make
1:24. And they that were sent were of the Pharisees.
1:25. And they asked him and said to him: Why then dost thou baptize, if
1:26. John answered them, saying: I baptize with water: but there hath
1:27. The same is he that shall come after me, who is preferred before
1:28. These things were done in Bethania, beyond the Jordan, where John
1:29. The next day, John saw Jesus coming to him; and he saith: Behold
1:30. This is he of whom I said: After me there cometh a man, who is
1:31. And I knew him not: but that he may be made manifest in Israel,
1:32. And John gave testimony, saying: I saw the Spirit coming down, as
1:33. And I knew him not: but he who sent me to baptize with water said
1:34. And I saw: and I gave testimony that this is the Son of God.
1:35. The next day again John stood and two of his disciples.
1:36. And beholding Jesus walking, he saith: Behold the Lamb of God.
1:37. And the two disciples heard him speak: and they followed Jesus.
1:38. And Jesus turning and seeing them following him, saith to them:
1:39. He saith to them: Come and see. They came and saw where he abode:
1:40. And Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who had
1:41. He findeth first his brother Simon and saith to him: We have found
1:42. And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said:
1:43. On the following day, he would go forth into Galilee: and he
1:44. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
1:45. Philip findeth Nathanael and saith to him: We have found him of
1:46. And Nathanael said to him: Can any thing of good come from
1:47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and he saith of him: Behold an
1:48. Nathanael saith to him: Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and
1:49. Nathanael answered him and said: Rabbi: Thou art the Son of God.
1:50. Jesus answered and said to him: Because I said unto thee, I saw
1:51. And he saith to him: Amen, amen, I say to you, you shall see the
John Chapter 2
Christ changes water into wine. He casts the sellers out of the temple.
2:1. And the third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the
2:2. And Jesus also was invited, and his disciples, to the marriage.
2:3. And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: They have
2:4. And Jesus saith to her: Woman, what is that to me and to thee? My
What is that to me, etc... These words of our Saviour, spoken to his
2:5. His mother saith to the waiters: Whatsoever he shall say to you, do
2:6. Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the
2:7. Jesus saith to them: Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled
2:8. And Jesus saith to them: Draw out now and carry to the chief
2:9. And when the chief steward had tasted the water made wine and knew
2:10. And saith to him: Every man at first setteth forth good wine, and
2:11. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee and
2:12. After this, he went down to Capharnaum, he and his mother and his
2:13. And the pasch of the Jews was at hand: and Jesus went up to
2:14. And he found in the temple them that sold oxen and sheep and
2:15. And when he had made, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he
2:16. And to them that sold doves he said: Take these things hence, and
2:17. And his disciples remembered, that it was written: The zeal of thy
2:18. The Jews, therefore, answered, and said to him: What sign dost
2:19. Jesus answered and said to them: Destroy this temple; and in three
2:20. The Jews then said: Six and forty years was this temple in
2:21. But he spoke of the temple of his body.
2:22. When therefore he was risen again from the dead, his disciples
2:23. Now when he was at Jerusalem, at the pasch, upon the festival day,
2:24. But Jesus did not trust himself unto them: for that he knew all
2:25. And because he needed not that any should give testimony of man:
John Chapter 3
Christ's discourse with Nicodemus. John's testimony.
3:1. And there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of
3:2. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him: Rabbi, we know
3:3. Jesus answered and said to him: Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a
3:4. Nicodemus saith to him: How can a man be born when he is old? Can
3:5. Jesus answered: Amen, amen, I say to thee, unless a man be born
Unless a man be born again, etc... By these words our Saviour hath
3:6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of
3:7. Wonder not that I said to thee: You must be born again.
3:8. The Spirit breatheth where he will and thou hearest his voice: but
3:9. Nicodemus answered and said to him: How can these things be done?
3:10. Jesus answered and said to him: Art thou a master in Israel, and
3:11. Amen, amen, I say to thee that we speak what we know and we
3:12. If I have spoken to you earthly things, and you believe not: how
3:13. And no man hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended from
3:14. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son
3:15. That whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life
3:16. For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that
3:17. For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world: but
3:18. He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not
Is not judged... He that believeth, viz., by a faith working through
3:19. And this is the judgment: Because the light is come into the world
The judgment... That is, the cause of his comdemnation.
3:20. For every one that doth evil hateth the light and cometh not to
3:21. But he that doth truth cometh to the light, that his works may be
He that doth truth... that is, he that acteth according to truth, which
3:22. After these things, Jesus and his disciples came into the land of
3:23. And John also was baptizing in Ennon near Salim: because there was
3:24. For John was not yet cast into prison.
3:25. And there arose a question between some of John's disciples and
3:26. And they came to John and said to him: Rabbi, he that was with
3:27. John answered and said: A man cannot receive any thing, unless it
3:28. You yourselves do bear me witness that I said that I am not
3:29. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the
3:30. He must increase: but I must decrease.
3:31. He that cometh from above is above all. He that is of the earth,
3:32. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth: and no man
3:33. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God
3:34. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God doth
3:35. The Father loveth the Son: and he hath given all things into his
3:36. He that believeth in the Son hath life everlasting: but he that
John Chapter 4
Christ talks with the Samaritan woman. He heals the ruler's son.
4:1. When Jesus therefore understood the Pharisees had heard that Jesus
4:2. (Though Jesus himself did not baptize, but his disciples),
4:3. He left Judea and went again into Galilee.
4:4. And he was of necessity to pass through Samaria.
4:5. He cometh therefore to a city of Samaria, which is called Sichar,
4:6. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his
4:7. There cometh a woman of Samaria, to draw water. Jesus saith to her:
4:8. For his disciples were gone into the city to buy meats.
4:9. Then that Samaritan woman saith to him: How dost thou, being a Jew;
4:10. Jesus answered and said to her: If thou didst know the gift of God
4:11. The woman saith to him: Sir, thou hast nothing wherein to draw,
4:12. Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and
4:13. Jesus answered and said to her: Whosoever drinketh of this water
4:14. But the water that I will give him shall become in him a fountain
4:15. The woman said to him: Sir, give me this water, that I may not
4:16. Jesus saith to her: Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
4:17. The woman answered and said: I have no husband. Jesus said to her:
4:18. For thou hast had five husbands: and he whom thou now hast is not
4:19. The woman saith to him: Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
4:20. Our fathers adored on this mountain: and you say that at Jerusalem
This mountain... Garizim, where the Samaritans had their schismatical
4:21. Jesus saith to her: Woman, believe me that the hour cometh, when
4:22. You adore that which you know not: we adore that which we know.
4:23. But the hour cometh and now is, when the true adorers shall adore
4:24. God is a spirit: and they that adore him must adore him in spirit
4:25. The woman saith to him: I know that the Messias cometh (who is
4:26. Jesus saith to her: I am he, who am speaking with thee.
4:27. And immediately his disciples came. And they wondered that he
4:28. The woman therefore left her waterpot and went her way into the
4:29. Come, and see a man who has told me all things whatsoever I have
4:30. They went therefore out of the city and came unto him.
4:31. In the mean time, the disciples prayed him, saying: Rabbi, eat.
4:32. But he said to them: I have meat to eat which you know not.
4:33. The disciples therefore said one to another: Hath any man brought
4:34. Jesus saith to them: My meat is to do the will of him that sent
4:35. Do not you say: There are yet four months, and then the harvest
4:36. And he that reapeth receiveth wages and gathereth fruit unto life
4:37. For in this is the saying true: That it is one man that soweth,
4:38. I have sent you to reap that in which you did not labour. Others
4:39. Now of that city many of the Samaritans believed in him, for the
4:40. So when the Samaritans were come to him, they desired that he
4:41. And many more believed in him, because of his own word.
4:42. And they said to the woman: We now believe, not for thy saying:
4:43. Now after two days, he departed thence and went into Galilee.
4:44. For Jesus himself gave testimony that a prophet hath no honour in
4:45. And when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him,
4:46. He came again therefore into Cana of Galilee, where he made the
4:47. He having heard that Jesus was come from Judea into Galilee, sent
4:48. Jesus therefore said to him: Unless you see signs and wonders, you
4:49. The ruler saith to him: Lord, come down before that my son die.
4:50. Jesus saith to him: Go thy way. Thy son liveth. The man believed
4:51. And as he was going down, his servants met him: and they brought
4:52. He asked therefore of them the hour wherein he grew better. And
4:53. The father therefore knew that it was at the same hour that Jesus
4:54. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come
John Chapter 5
Christ heals on the sabbath the man languishing thirty-eight years. His
5:1. After these things was a festival day of the Jews: and Jesus went
5:2. Now there is at Jerusalem a pond, called Probatica, which in Hebrew
Probatica... That is, the sheep pond; either so called, because the
5:3. In these lay a great multitude of sick, of blind, of lame, of
5:4. And an angel of the Lord descended at certain times into the pond
5:5. And there was a certain man there that had been eight and thirty
5:6. Him when Jesus had seen lying, and knew that he had been now a long
5:7. The infirm man answered him: Sir, I have no man, when the water is
5:8. Jesus saith to him: Arise, take up thy bed and walk.
5:9. And immediately the man was made whole: and he took up his bed and
5:10. The Jews therefore said to him that was healed: It is the sabbath.
5:11. He answered them: He that made me whole, he said to me: Take up
5:12. They asked him therefore: Who is that man who said to thee: Take
5:13. But he who was healed knew not who it was: for Jesus went aside
5:14. Afterwards, Jesus findeth him in the temple and saith to him:
5:15. The man went his way and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had
5:16. Therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, because he did these
5:17. But Jesus answered them: My Father worketh until now; and I work.
5:18. Hereupon therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because
5:19. Then Jesus answered and said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you,
5:20. For the Father loveth the Son and sheweth him all things which
5:21. For as the Father raiseth up the dead and giveth life: so the Son
5:22. For neither does the Father judge any man: but hath given all
5:23. That all men may honour the Son, as they honour the Father. He who
5:24. Amen, amen, I say unto you that he who heareth my word and
5:25. Amen, amen, I say unto you, that the hour cometh, and now is, when
5:26. For as the Father hath life in himself, so he hath given to the
5:27. And he hath given him power to do judgment, because he is the Son
5:28. Wonder not at this: for the hour cometh wherein all that are in
5:29. And they that have done good things shall come forth unto the
Unto the resurrection of judgment... That is, condemnation.
5:30. I cannot of myself do any thing. As I hear, so I judge. And my
5:31. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
5:32. There is another that beareth witness of me: and I know that the
5:33. You sent to John: and he gave testimony to the truth.
5:34. But I receive not testimony from man: but I say these things, that
5:35. He was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing for a
5:36. But I have a greater testimony than that of John: for the works
5:37. And the Father himself who hath sent me hath given testimony of
5:38. And you have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent,
5:39. Search the scriptures: for you think in them to have life
Or... You search the scriptures. Scrutamini... It is not a command for
5:40. And you will not come to me that you may have life.
5:41. I receive not glory from men.
5:42. But I know you, that you have not the love of God in you.
5:43. I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not: if
5:44. How can you believe, who receive glory one from another: and the
5:45. Think not that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one that

5:47. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my
John Chapter 6
Christ feeds five thousand with five loaves. He walks upon the sea and
6:1. After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is
6:2. And a great multitude followed him, because they saw the miracles
6:3. Jesus therefore went up into a mountain: and there he sat with his
6:4. Now the pasch, the festival day of the Jews, was near at hand.
6:5. When Jesus therefore had lifted up his eyes and seen that a very
6:6. And this he said to try him: for he himself knew what he would do.
6:7. Philip answered him: Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
6:8. One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, saith to
6:9. There is a boy here that hath five barley loaves and two fishes.
6:10. Then Jesus said: Make the men sit down. Now, there was much grass
6:11. And Jesus took the loaves: and when he had given thanks, he
6:12. And when they were filled, he said to his disciples: gather up the
6:13. They gathered up therefore and filled twelve baskets with the
6:14. Now those men, when they had seen what a miracle Jesus had done,
6:15. Jesus therefore, when he knew that they would come to take him by
6:16. And when evening was come, his disciples went down to the sea.
6:17. And when they had gone up into a ship, they went over the sea to
6:18. And the sea arose, by reason of a great wind that blew.
6:19. When they had rowed therefore about five and twenty or thirty
6:20. But he saith to them: It is I. Be not afraid.
6:21. They were willing therefore to take him into the ship. And
6:22. The next day, the multitude that stood on the other side of the
6:23. But other ships came in from Tiberias, nigh unto the place where
6:24. When therefore the multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor his
6:25. And when they had found him on that other side of the sea, they
6:26. Jesus answered them and said: Amen, amen, I say to you, you seek
6:27. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that which
6:28. They said therefore unto him: What shall we do, that we may work
6:29. Jesus answered and said to them: This is the work of God, that you
6:30. They said therefore to him: What sign therefore dost thou shew
6:31. Our fathers did eat manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave
6:32. Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you; Moses gave you
6:33. For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven and
6:34. They said therefore unto him: Lord, give us always this bread.
6:35. And Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life. He that cometh to
6:36. But I said unto you that you also have seen me, and you believe
6:37. All that the Father giveth to me shall come to me: and him that
6:38. Because I came down from heaven, not to do my own will but the
6:39. Now this is the will of the Father who sent me: that of all that
6:40. And this is the will of my Father that sent me: that every one who
6:41. The Jews therefore murmured at him, because he had said: I am the
6:42. And they said: Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father
6:43. Jesus therefore answered and said to them: Murmur not among
6:44. No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw
Draw him... Not by compulsion, nor by laying the free will under any
6:45. It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of
6:46. Not that any man hath seen the Father: but he who is of God, he
6:47. Amen, amen, I say unto you: He that believeth in me hath
6:48. I am the bread of life.
6:49. Your fathers did eat manna in the desert: and are dead.
6:50. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven: that if any man
6:51. I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
6:52. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the
6:53. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this
6:54. Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you
Except you eat and drink, etc... To receive the body and blood of
6:55. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting
6:56. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed.
6:57. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me: and I
6:58. As the living Father hath sent me and I live by the Father: so he
6:59. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers
6:60. These things he said, teaching in the synagogue, in Capharnaum.
6:61. Many therefore of his disciples, hearing it, said: This saying is
6:62. But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this,
6:63. If then you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was
If then you shall see, etc... Christ by mentioning his ascension, by
6:64. It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing. The
The flesh profiteth nothing... Dead flesh separated from the spirit, in
6:65. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from
6:66. And he said: Therefore did I say to you that no man can come to
6:67. After this, many of his disciples went back and walked no more
6:68. Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away?
6:69. And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou
6:70. And we have believed and have known that thou art the Christ, the
6:71. Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve? And one of you
6:72. Now he meant Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for this same was
John Chapter 7
Christ goes up to the feast of the tabernacles. He teaches in the
7:1. After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk
7:2. Now the Jews feast of tabernacles was at hand.
7:3. And his brethren said to, him: Pass from hence and go into Judea,
7:4. For there is no man that doth any thing in secret, and he himself
7:5. For neither did his brethren believe in him.
7:6. Then Jesus said to them: My time is not yet come; but your time is
7:7. The world cannot hate you: but me it hateth, because I give
7:8. Go you up to this festival day: but I go not up to this festival
7:9. When he had said these things, he himself stayed in Galilee.
7:10. But after his brethren were gone up, then he also went up to the
7:11. The Jews therefore sought him on the festival day and said: Where
7:12. And there was much murmuring among the multitude concerning him.
7:13. Yet no man spoke openly of him, for fear of the Jews.
7:14. Now, about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple
7:15. And the Jews wondered, saying: How doth this man know letters,
7:16. Jesus answered them and said: My doctrine is not mine, but his
7:17. If any man will do the will of him, he shall know of the doctrine,
7:18. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that
7:19. Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the
7:20. Why seek you to kill me? The multitude answered and said: Thou
7:21. Jesus answered and said to them: One work I have done: and you all
7:22. Therefore, Moses gave you circumcision (not because it is of
7:23. If a man receive circumcision on the sabbath day, that the law of
7:24. Judge not according to the appearance: but judge just judgment.
7:25. Some therefore of Jerusalem said: Is not this he whom they seek to
7:26. And behold, he speaketh openly: and they say nothing to him. Have
7:27. But we know this man, whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no
7:28. Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying: You
7:29. I know him, because I am from him: and he hath sent me.
7:30. They sought therefore to apprehend him: and no man laid hands on
7:31. But of the people many believed in him and said: When the Christ
7:32. The Pharisees heard the people murmuring these things concerning
7:33. Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while I am with you:
7:34. You shall seek me and shall not find me: and where I am, thither
7:35. The Jews therefore said among themselves: Whither will he go, that
7:36. What is this saying that he hath said: You shall seek me and shall
7:37. And on the last, and great day of the festivity, Jesus stood and
7:38. He that believeth in me, as the scripture saith: Out of his belly
7:39. Now this he said of the Spirit which they should receive who
7:40. Of that multitude therefore, when they had heard these words of
7:41. Others said: This is the Christ. But some said: Doth the Christ
7:42. Doth not the scripture say: That Christ cometh of the seed of
7:43. So there arose a dissension among the people because of him.
7:44. And some of them would have apprehended him: but no man laid hands
7:45. The ministers therefore came to the chief priests and the
7:46. The ministers answered: Never did man speak like this man.
7:47. The Pharisees therefore answered them: Are you also seduced?
7:48. Hath any one of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees?
7:49. But this multitude, that knoweth not the law, are accursed.
7:50. Nicodemus said to them (he that came to him by night, who was one
7:51. Doth our law judge any man, unless it first hear him and know what
7:52. They answered and said to him: Art thou also a Galilean? Search
7:53. And every man returned to his own house.
John Chapter 8
The woman taken in adultery. Christ justifies his doctrine.
8:1. And Jesus went unto mount Olivet.
8:2. And early in the morning he came again into the temple: and all the
8:3. And the scribes and Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in
8:4. And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery.
8:5. Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what
8:6. And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But
8:7. When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and
8:8. And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground.
8:9. But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the
8:10. Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they
8:11. Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn
8:12. Again therefore, Jesus spoke to: them, saying: I am the light of
8:13. The Pharisees therefore said to him: Thou givest testimony of
8:14. Jesus answered and said to them: Although I give testimony of
8:15. You judge according to the flesh: I judge not any man.
8:16. And if I do judge, my judgment is true: because I am not alone,
8:17. And in your law it is written that the testimony of two men is
8:18. I am one that give testimony of myself: and the Father that sent
8:19. They said therefore to him: Where is thy Father? Jesus answered:
8:20. These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, teaching in the temple:
8:21. Again therefore Jesus said to them: I go: and you shall seek me.
8:22. The Jews therefore said: Will he kill himself, because he said:
8:23. And he said to them: You are from beneath: I am from above. You
8:24. Therefore I said to you that you shall die in your sins. For if
8:25. They said therefore to him: Who art thou? Jesus said to them: The
8:26. Many things I have to speak and to judge of you. But he that sent
8:27. And they understood not that he called God his Father.
8:28. Jesus therefore said to them: When you shall have lifted up, the
8:29. And he that sent me is with me: and he hath not left me alone. For
8:30. When he spoke these things, many believed in him.
8:31. Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed him: If you continue in
8:32. And you shall know the truth: and the truth shall make you free.
8:33. They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham: and we have never
8:34. Jesus answered them: Amen, amen, I say unto you that whosoever
8:35. Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the son
8:36. If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free
8:37. I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill
8:38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the
8:39. They answered and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith
8:40. But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to
8:41. You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We
8:42. Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would
8:43. Why do you not know my speech? Because you cannot hear my word.
8:44. You are of your father the devil: and the desires of your father
8:45. But if I say the truth, you believe me not.
8:46. Which of you shall convince me of sin? If I say the truth to you,
8:47. He that is of God heareth the words of God. Therefore you hear
8:48. The Jews therefore answered and said to him: Do not we say well
8:49. Jesus answered: I have not a devil: but I honour my Father. And
8:50. But I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeketh and
8:51. Amen, amen, I say to you: If any man keep my word, he shall not
8:52. The Jews therefore said: Now we know that thou hast a devil.
8:53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham who is dead? And the
8:54. Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is
8:55. And you have not known him: but I know him. And if I shall say
8:56. Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see my day: he saw it
8:57. The Jews therefore said to him: Thou art not yet fifty years old.
8:58. Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was
8:59. They took up stones therefore to cast at him. But Jesus hid
John Chapter 9
He gives sight to the man born blind.
9:1. And Jesus passing by, saw a man who was blind from his birth.
9:2. And his disciples asked him: Rabbi, who hath sinned, this man or
9:3. Jesus answered: Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents; but
9:4. I must work the works of him that sent me, whilst it is day: the
9:5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
9:6. When he had said these things, he spat on the ground and made clay
9:7. And said to him: Go, wash in the pool of Siloe, which is
9:8. The neighbours, therefore, and they who had seen him before that he
9:9. But others said: No, but he is like him. But he said: I am he.
9:10. They said therefore to him: How were thy eyes opened?
9:11. He answered: That man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed
9:12. And they said to him: Where is he? He saith: I know not.
9:13. They bring him that had been blind to the Pharisees.
9:14. Now it was the sabbath, when Jesus made the clay and opened his
9:15. Again therefore the Pharisees asked him how he had received his
9:16. Some therefore of the Pharisees said: This man is not of God, who
9:17. They say therefore to the blind man again: What sayest thou of him
9:18. The Jews then did not believe concerning him, that he had been
9:19. And asked them, saying: Is this your son, who you say was born
9:20. His parents answered them and said: We know that this is our son
9:21. But how he now seeth, we know not: or who hath opened his eyes, we
9:22. These things his parents said, because they feared the Jews: for
9:23. Therefore did his parents say: He is of age. Ask himself.
9:24. They therefore called the man again that had been blind and said
9:25. He said therefore to them: If he be a sinner, I know not. One
9:26. They said then to him: What did he to thee? How did he open thy
9:27. He answered them: I have told you already, and you have heard. Why
9:28. They reviled him therefore and said: Be thou his disciple; but we
9:29. We know that God spoke to Moses: but as to this man, we know not
9:30. The man answered and said to them: why, herein is a wonderful
9:31. Now we know that God doth not hear sinners: but if a man be a
9:32. From the beginning of the world it hath not been heard, that any
9:33. Unless this man were of God, he could not do anything.
9:34. They answered and said to him: Thou wast wholly born in sins; and
9:35. Jesus heard that they had cast him out. And when he had found him,
9:36. He answered, and said: Who is he, Lord, that I may believe in him?
9:37. And Jesus said to him: Thou hast both seen him; and it is he that
9:38. And he said: I believe, Lord. And falling down, he adored him.
9:39. And Jesus said: For judgment I am come into this world: that they
I am come, etc... Not that Christ came for that end, that any one should
9:40. And some of the Pharisees, who were with him, heard: and they said
9:41. Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you should not have sin:
If you were blind, etc... If you were invincibly ignorant, and had
John Chapter 10
Christ is the door and the good shepherd. He and his Father are one.
10:1. Amen, amen, I say to you: He that entereth not by the door into
10:2. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3. To him the porter openeth: and the sheep hear his voice. And he
10:4. And when he hath let out his own sheep, he goeth before them: and
10:5. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they
10:6. This proverb Jesus spoke to them. But they understood not what he
10:7. Jesus therefore said to them again: Amen, amen, I say to you, I am
10:8. All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers: and the
10:9. I am the door. By me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved: and
10:10. The thief cometh not, but for to steal and to kill and to
10:11. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for his
10:12. But the hireling and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the
10:13. And the hireling flieth, because he is a hireling: and he hath no
10:14. I am the good shepherd: and I know mine, and mine know me.
10:15. As the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father: and I lay down
10:16. And other sheep I have that are not of this fold: them also I
10:17. Therefore doth the Father love me: because I lay down my life,
10:18. No man taketh it away from me: but I lay it down of myself. And
10:19. A dissension rose again among the Jews for these words.
10:20. And many of them said: He hath a devil and is mad. Why hear you
10:21. Others said: These are not the words of one that hath a devil.
10:22. And it was the feast of the dedication at Jerusalem: and it was
10:23. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch.
10:24. The Jews therefore came round about him and said to him: How long
10:25. Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the
10:26. But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep.
10:27. My sheep hear my voice. And I know them: and they follow me.
10:28. And I give them life everlasting: and they shall not perish for
10:29. That which my Father hath given me is greater than all: and no
10:30. I and the Father are one.
I and the Father are one... That is, one divine nature, but two distinct
10:31. The Jews then took up stones to stone him.
10:32. Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my
10:33. The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for
10:34. Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said, you
10:35. If he called them gods to whom the word of God was spoken; and
10:36. Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into
10:37. If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
10:38. But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works:
10:39. They sought therefore to take him: and he escaped out of their
10:40. And he went again beyond the Jordan, into that place where John
10:41. And many resorted to him: and they said: John indeed did no sign.
10:42. But all things whatsoever John said of this man were true. And
John Chapter 11
Christ raises Lazarus to life. The rulers resolve to put him to death.
11:1. Now there was a certain man sick, named Lazarus, of Bethania, of
11:2. (And Mary was she that anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped
11:3. His sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom
11:4. And Jesus hearing it, said to them: This sickness is not unto
11:5. Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister Mary and Lazarus.
11:6. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he still remained in
11:7. Then after that, he said to his disciples: Let us go into Judea
11:8. The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews but now sought to stone
11:9. Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If a man
11:10. But if he walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is
11:11. These things he said; and after that he said to them: Lazarus our
11:12. His disciples therefore said: Lord, if he sleep, he shall do
11:13. But Jesus spoke of his death: and they thought that he spoke of
11:14. Then therefore Jesus said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead.
11:15. And I am glad, for your sakes; that I was not there, that you may
11:16. Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow
11:17. Jesus therefore came: and found that he had been four days
11:18. (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.)
11:19. And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort
11:20. Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus was come, went
11:21. Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my
11:22. But now also I know that whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God
11:23. Jesus saith to her: Thy brother shall rise again.
11:24. Martha saith to him: I know that he shall rise again, in the
11:25. Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that
11:26. And every one that liveth and believeth in me shall not die for
11:27. She saith to him: Yea, Lord, I have believed that thou art
11:28. And when she had said these things, she went and called her
11:29. She, as soon as she heard this, riseth quickly and cometh to him.
11:30. For Jesus was not yet come into the town: but he was still in
11:31. The Jews therefore, who were with her in the house and comforted
11:32. When Mary therefore was come where Jesus was, seeing him, she
11:33. Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews that were
11:34. And said: Where have you laid him? They say to him: Lord, come
11:35. And Jesus wept.
11:36. The Jews therefore said: Behold how he loved him.
11:37. But some of them said: Could not he that opened the eyes of the
11:38. Jesus therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the
11:39. Jesus saith: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that
11:40. Jesus saith to her: Did not I say to thee that if thou believe,
11:41. They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up his
11:42. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people
11:43. When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice:
11:44. And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and
11:45. Many therefore of the Jews, who were come to Mary and Martha and
11:46. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them the things
11:47. The chief priests, therefore, and the Pharisees gathered a
11:48. If we let him alone so, all will believe in him; and the Romans
11:49. But one of them, named Caiphas, being the high priest that year,
11:50. Neither do you consider that it is expedient for you that one man
11:51. And this he spoke not of himself: but being the high priest of
11:52. And not only for the nation, but to gather together in one the
11:53. From that day therefore they devised to put him to death.
11:54. Wherefore Jesus walked no more openly among the Jews: but he went
11:55. And the pasch of the Jews was at hand: and many from the country
11:56. They sought therefore for Jesus; and they discoursed one with
John Chapter 12
The anointing of Christ's feet. His riding into Jerusalem upon an ass. A
12:1. Jesus therefore, six days before the pasch, came to Bethania,
12:2. And they made him a supper there: and Martha served. But Lazarus
12:3. Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of right spikenard, of
12:4. Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, he that was about to
12:5. Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence and given
12:6. Now he said this not because he cared for the poor; but because he
12:7. Jesus therefore said: Let her alone, that she may keep it against
12:8. For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always.
See the annotation of St. Matt. 26. 11.
12:9. A great multitude therefore of the Jews knew that he was there;
12:10. But the chief priests thought to kill Lazarus also:
12:11. Because many of the Jews, by reason of him, went away and
12:12. And on the next day, a great multitude that was come to the
12:13. Took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet him and cried
12:14. And Jesus found a young ass and sat upon it, as it is written:
12:15. Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold thy king cometh, sitting on an
12:16. These things his disciples did not know at the first: but when
12:17. The multitude therefore gave testimony, which was with him, when
12:18. For which reason also the people came to meet him, because they
12:19. The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: Do you see that we
12:20. Now there were certain Gentiles among them, who came up to adore
12:21. These therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee,
12:22. Philip cometh and telleth Andrew. Again Andrew and Philip told
12:23. But Jesus answered them, saying: The hour is come that the Son of
12:24. Amen, amen, I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into
12:25. Itself remaineth alone. But if it die it bringeth forth much
12:26. If any man minister to me, let him follow me: and where I am,
12:27. Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? Father, save me
12:28. Father, glorify thy name. A voice therefore came from heaven: I
12:29. The multitude therefore that stood and heard said that it
12:30. Jesus answered and said: This voice came not because of me, but
12:31. Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this
12:32. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to
12:33. (Now this he said, signifying what death he should die.)
12:34. The multitude answered him: We have heard out of the law that
12:35. Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while, the light is
12:36. Whilst you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be
12:37. And whereas he had done so many miracles before them, they
12:38. That the saying of Isaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which
12:39. Therefore they could not believe, because Isaias said again:
They could not believe... Because they would not, saith St. Augustine,
12:40. He hath blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, that they
12:41. These things said Isaias, when he saw his glory, and spoke of
12:42. However, many of the chief men also believed in him: but because
12:43. For they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.
12:44. But Jesus cried and said: He that believeth in me doth not
12:45. And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me.
12:46. I am come, a light into the world, that whosoever believeth in me
12:47. And if any man hear my words and keep them not, I do not judge
12:48. He that despiseth me and receiveth not my words hath one that
12:49. For I have not spoken of myself: but the Father who sent me, he
12:50. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting. The things

Christ washes his disciples' feet. The treason of Judas. The new
13:1. Before the festival day of the pasch, Jesus knowing that his hour
Before the festival day of the pasch... This was the fourth and last
13:2. And when supper was done (the devil having now put into the heart
13:3. Knowing that the Father had given him all things into his hands
13:4. He riseth from supper and layeth aside his garments and, having
13:5. After that, he putteth water into a basin and began to wash the
13:6. He cometh therefore to Simon Peter. And Peter saith to him: Lord,
13:7. Jesus answered and said to him: What I do, thou knowest not now;
13:8. Peter saith to him: Thou shalt never wash my feet, Jesus answered
13:9. Simon Peter saith to him: Lord, not only my feet, but also my
13:10. Jesus saith to him: He that is washed needeth not but to wash his
13:11. For he knew who he was that would betray him; therefore he said:
13:12. Then after he had washed their feet and taken his garments, being
13:13. You call me Master and Lord. And you say well: for so I am.
13:14. If then I being your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you
13:15. For I have given you an example, that as I have done to you, so
13:16. Amen, amen, I say to you: The servant is not greater than his
13:17. If you know these things, you shall be blessed if you do them.
13:18. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen. But that the
13:19. At present I tell you, before it come to pass: that when it shall
13:20. Amen, amen, I say to you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send
13:21. When Jesus had said these things, he was troubled in spirit; and
13:22. The disciples therefore looked one upon another, doubting of whom
13:23. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom
13:24. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him and said to him: Who is it
13:25. He therefore, leaning on the breast of Jesus, saith to him: Lord,
13:26. Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And
13:27. And after the morsel, Satan entered into him. And Jesus said to
That which thou dost, do quickly... It is not a license, much less a
13:28. Now no man at the table knew to what purpose he said this unto
13:29. For some thought, because Judas had the purse, that Jesus had
13:30. He therefore, having received the morsel, went out immediately.
13:31. When he therefore was gone out, Jesus said: Now is the Son of man
13:32. If God be glorified in him, God also will glorify him in himself:
13:33. Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek
13:34. A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as
13:35. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have
13:36. Simon Peter saith to him: Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus
13:37. Peter saith to him: Why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down
13:38. Jesus answered him: Wilt thou lay down thy life for me? Amen,

14:1. Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God: believe also
14:2. In my Father's house there are many mansions. If not, I would have
14:3. And if I shall go and prepare a place for you, I will come again
14:4. And whither I go you know: and the way you know.
14:5. Thomas saith to him: Lord, we know not whither thou goest. And
14:6. Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No
14:7. If you had known me, you would without doubt have known my Father
14:8. Philip saith to him: Lord, shew us the Father; and it is enough
14:9. Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you and have
14:10. Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me?
14:11. Believe you not that I am in the Father and the Father in me?
14:12. Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen, I say to
14:13. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the
14:14. If you shall ask me any thing in my name, that I will do.
14:15. If you love me, keep my commandments.
14:16. And I will ask the Father: and he shall give you another
Paraclete... That is, a comforter: or also an advocate; inasmuch as by

14:19. Yet a little while and the world seeth me no more. But you see
14:20. In that day you shall know that I am in my Father: and you in me,
14:21. He that hath my commandments and keepeth them; he it is that
14:22. Judas saith to him, not the Iscariot: Lord, how is it that thou
14:23. Jesus answered and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep
14:24. He that loveth me not keepeth not my words. And the word which

15:3. Now you are clean, by reason of the word which I have spoken to
15:4. Abide in me: and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of
15:5. I am the vine: you the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in
15:6. If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast forth as a branch and
15:7. If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask
15:8. In this is my Father glorified: that you bring forth very much
15:9. As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my
15:10. If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love: as I
15:11. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and
15:12. This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have
15:13. Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life
15:14. You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you.
15:15. I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not
15:16. You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed
15:17. These things I command you, that you love one another.
15:18. If the world hate you, know ye that it hath hated me before you.
15:19. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but
15:20. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater
15:21. But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake:
15:22. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin:
15:23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
15:24. If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath

The conclusion of Christ's last discourse to his disciples.
16:1. These things have I spoken to you things have I spoken to you that
16:2. They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh,
16:3. And these things will they do to you; because they have not known
16:4. But these things I have told you, that when the hour shall come,
16:5. But I told you not these things from the beginning, because I was
16:6. But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow hath filled
16:7. But I tell you the truth: it is expedient to you that I go. For

He will convince the world of sin, etc... The Holy Ghost, by his coming
16:9. Of sin: because they believed not in me.
16:10. And of justice: because I go to the Father: and you shall see me
16:11. And of judgment: because the prince of this world is already

16:16. A little while, and now you shall not see me: and again a little

16:19. And Jesus knew that they had a mind to ask him. And he said to
16:20. Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the
16:21. A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is
16:22. So also you now indeed have sorrow: but I will see you again and
16:23. And in that day you shall not ask me any thing. Amen, amen, I say
16:24. Hitherto, you have not asked any thing in my name. Ask, and you
16:25. These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. The hour cometh
16:26. In that day, you shall ask in my name: and I say not to you that
16:27. For the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me and
16:28. I came forth from the Father and am come into the world: again I
16:29. His disciples say to him: Behold, now thou speakest plainly and
16:30. Now we know that thou knowest all things and thou needest not
16:31. Jesus answered them: Do you now believe?
16:32. Behold, the hour cometh, and it is now come, that you shall be
16:33. These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace.

17:5. And now glorify thou me, O Father, with thyself, with the glory
17:6. I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out
17:7. Now they have known that all things which thou hast given me are
17:8. Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them. And
17:9. I pray for them. I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou
17:10. And all my things are thine, and thine are mine: and I am
17:11. And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I
17:12. While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou
17:13. And now I come to thee: and these things I speak in the world,
17:14. I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them:
17:15. I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but
17:16. They are not of the world, as I also am not of the world.
17:17. Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth.
17:18. As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into
17:19. And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be
17:20. And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through
17:21. That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee;
17:22. And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them:
17:23. I in them, and thou in me: that they may be made perfect in one:
17:24. Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me

17:26. And I have made known thy name to them and will make it known:

19:2. And the soldiers platting a crown of thorns, put it upon his head:

19:11. Jesus answered: Thou shouldst not have any power against me,
19:12. And from henceforth Pilate sought to release him. But the Jews

Thus, we usually do not keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition. We are now trying to release all our eBooks one year in advance of the official release dates, leaving time for better editing. Please be encouraged to tell us about any error or corrections, even years after the official publication date. Please note neither this listing nor its contents are final til midnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement. The official release date of all Project Gutenberg eBooks is at Midnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month. A preliminary version may often be posted for suggestion, comment and editing by those who wish to do so. Most people start at our Web sites at: http://gutenberg.net or http://promo.net/pg These Web sites include award-winning information about Project Gutenberg, including how to donate, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to subscribe to our email newsletter (free!). Those of you who want to download any eBook before announcement can get to them as follows, and just download by date. This is also a good way to get them instantly upon announcement, as the indexes our cataloguers produce obviously take a while after an announcement goes out in the Project Gutenberg Newsletter. http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext03 or ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/docs/books/gutenberg/etext03 Or /etext02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90 Just search by the first five letters of the filename you want, as it appears in our Newsletters. Information about Project Gutenberg (one page) We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. The time it takes us, a rather conservative estimate, is fifty hours to get any eBook selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyright searched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. Our projected audience is one hundred million readers. If the value per text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $2 million dollars per hour in 2002 as we release over 100 new text files per month: 1240 more eBooks in 2001 for a total of 4000+ We are already on our way to trying for 2000 more eBooks in 2002 If they reach just 1-2% of the world's population then the total will reach over half a trillion eBooks given away by year's end.
