Father: so, also, he who eateth me, will live by me: 57 this is the bread that came down from heaven: not as your fathers eat the manna, and are dead; he who eateth this bread, will live for ever. 58 These words he said in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum: 59 many, therefore, of his disciples, when they had heard them, said, This is a hard doctrine; who can receive it? 60 but Jesus knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, Stumble ye at this 2 61 what, then, if ye saw the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 62 it is the spirit that giveth life, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken to you are spirit, and are life: but there are some of you that believe not : 63 For Jesus knew, from the beginning, which were they that believed not; and who would betray him : 64 and he said, Therefore I told you, that no one can come to me, unless it be granted to him by the Father. 65 From that time many of his disciples went back from him, and walked no longer with him : 66 then said Jesus to the twelve, Will ye also go away ?

67 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou only hast the words of eternal life;

68 and we believe, and are sure, that thou art the Holy One of God.

69 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve? yet one of you is a devil:

70 but he spake of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon; for he was about to betray him, though he was one of the twelve.

CHAPTER VII.

AFTER these things, Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2 And the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand : 3 his brethren therefore said to him, Depart from hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest: 4 for no one doeth any thing in secret, if he himself seeketh to be known openly : since thou doest these things, manifest thyself to the world: 5 for, neither did his brethren believe in him. 6 Then Jesus said to them, My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready : 7 the world cannot hate you;

but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that its works are evil: 8 go ye up to the feast; I go not up to this feast, for my time is not yet fully come: 9 and having said these words to them,he remained in Galilee: 10 but, when his brethren were gone up to the feast, then he also went up; not openly, but as it were in secret. 11 The Jews, therefore, sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he 7 12 and there was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: but others said, Nay; for he misleadeth the multitude: 13 but no one spake openly of him, through fear of the Jews. 14 And about the middle of the festival, Jesus went up into the temple, and taught: 15 and the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned 2 16 Jesus, therefore, answered them, and said, My doctrine is not my own, but that of him who sent me: 17 if any one wisheth to do his will, he will know of the doctrine, whether it is from God, or whether I speak from myself: 18 he who speaketh from himself, seeketh his own glory:

but he who seeketh the glory of him who sent him, is true, and no iniquity is in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law 2 yet not one of you keepeth the law. 20 Why seek ye to kill me? The multitude answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who seeketh to kill thee? 21 Jesus answered and said to them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel at this: 22 Moses gave you circumcision, (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers;) and ye circumcise a man on the sabbath day; 23 if, then, a man receive circumcision on the sabbath day, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are ye angred at me, because I have made a man altogether whole on the sabbath day? 24 judge not according to appearance, but judge a just judgment. 25 Then said some of the people of Jerusalem, Is not this he whom they seek to kill 2 26 yet, behold, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing to him ; have the rulers, indeed, acknowledged that this is the Christ? 27 nevertheless, we know from whence this man is; but when Christ cometh, no one will know from whence he is.

28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, as he taught, say

§ ing, Do ye both know me, and

know from whence I am? yet, I am not come of myself: 29 but, he who sent me is true, whom ye know not; but I know him, for I am from him, and he hath sent me. 30 Then they sought to seize him; but no one laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come : 31 but many of the multitude believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done? 32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him ; and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to seize him : 33 then said Jesus, Yet a little while I am with you, and then I go to him who Sent me : 34 ye will seek me, but will not find me: and where I am, ye cannot come. 35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go to the dispersed among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 what is this saying that he said, Ye will seek me, and will not find me: and where I am, ye cannot come?

37 In the last great day of
the feast, Jesus stood and cried
out, saying,
38 If any one thirst, let him
come to me, and drink : he
who believeth on me, out of
his belly shall flow, as the
scripture hath said, rivers of
springing water:
39 but this he said of the
Spirit, which they that believed
on him were about to receive :
for the Holy Spirit was not yet
given, because Jesus was not
yet glorified.
40 Many of the multitude,
therefore, when they heard
these words, said, Of a truth
this is the Prophet: others
said, This is the Christ:
41 but some said, Will the
Christ come out of Galilee ?
hath not the scripture said,
That the Christ cometh of the
seed of David, and from Beth-
lehem, the town where David
was 2
42 there was, therefore, a divi-
sion in the multitude, because
of him ;
43 and some amongst them
wished to seize him; but no
one laid hands on him.
44 The officers, therefore, came
back to the chief priests and
Pharisees: and they said to
them, Why have ye not brought
him ''
45 the officers answered, Never
did man so speak!
46 then answered the Pha-

risees, Have ye also been deceived 2 47 have any of the rulers, or of the Pharisees, believed on him? 48 but this multitude, who understand not the law, are accursed. 49 Nicodemus saith to them, (he who at first came to him, being one of them,) 50 Doth our law condemn a man unless it first hear, and know from himself, what he doeth 2 51 they answered and said to him, Art thou also of Galilee 2 search, and see, that out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

CHAPTER VIII.

HEN spake Jesus to them again, saying, I am the light of the world; he who followeth me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life: 2 the Pharisees, therefore, said to him, Thou bearest witness of thyself; therefore thy witness is not true: 3 Jesus answered and said to them, Though I bear witness of myself, my witness is true: for I know from whence I came, and whither I go ; but ye know not from whence I am come, and whither I go : 4 ye judge according to the flesh; I so judge no one: 5 and yet, if I judge, my

judgment is true, for I judge not alone, but I and the Father who sent me; 6 and it is written in your law, that the testimony of two neut. xvii. 6. men is true: xix. 15. 7 I, who bear witness of myself, am one; and the Father, who sent me, also beareth witness of me. 8 Then they said to him, Where is thy Father? 9 Jesus answered, Ye neither c. vii. 28. know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye would c. xiv. 7. have known my Father also. 10 These words he spake in the treasury, as he was teaching in the temple; yet no one laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come: 11 then said he to them again, I go away, and ye will seek me, and will die in your sins: c. vii. 34. whither I go, ye cannot come: 12 then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot COIne : 13 and he said to them, Ye are from below; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world: 14 I, therefore, said to you, that ye will die in your sins; for, if ye believe not that I am c. xvi. 9. he, ye will die in your sins: 15 then they said to him, Who art thou? Jesus saith to them, He whom I told you, even at the beginning:

16 I have many things to say, and to judge of you : but he who sent me is true; and the words which I have heard from him, I speak to the world:

17 they understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

18 Then said Jesus, When

man, ye will then know that I am he ; and that I do nothing of myself, but that I speak these words as my Father hath taught me : 19 and he who sent me, is with me ; he hath not left me alone: for, I do always the things that are pleasing to him. 20 As he spake these words, many believed on him : 21 then said Jesus to the Jews that believed on him, If ye continue in my word, ye are truly my disciples; 22 and ye will know the truth, and the truth will make you free: 23 they answered him, We are Abraham's seed, and were never in servitude to any one: how sayest thou, Ye will be made free ?

27 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; yet ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you : 28 I speak that which I have seen with my Father; and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 29 They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father: 30 Jesus saith to them, If ye were children of Abraham, ye would do the works of Abraham ; 31 but, now, ye seek to kill me, a man who hath told you the truth, which I have heard from God; this, Abraham had not done : ye do the deeds of your father: 32 they said to him, We were not begotten of fornication; we have one Father, even God : 33 he said to them, If God were your Father, ye would love me; for I went forth and am come from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent ine : 34 why understand ye not my speech even because ye cannot receive my word: 35 ye are from your father, the devil; and ye will do the lusts of your father: 36 he was a man-slayer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him; when he speaketh, he speaketh from his own, that which is false:
