That they inay all be one :
That they may also be in us-
That they may be one, even as we are one,
That they may be perfected in one-
And hast loved them even as thou hast loved me.
For thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world,
That the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them,
181 On saying this, Jesus went out with his disciples across the ravine of
Kedron to where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. 2 Now Judas his betrayer was also acquainted with the place ; for Jesus 3 and his disciples had often met together there. So, after getting the cohort
and officers from the high priests and the Pharisees, Judas comes there 4 with lanterns and torches and weapons. Thereupon, aware of all that
was coming upon him, Jesus went out; and he says to them, “Whom do 5 you seek ? They answered him, “ Jesus the Nazarene." He says to
them, “I am he." (Now Judas his betrayer was also standing along with 6 them.) So when he said to them, “I am he,"ithey drew back and fell to 7 the ground. Once more then he questioned them, “Whom do you seek ?” 8 They said, “Jesus the Nazarene.” Jesus replied, “I told you that I am he. 9 If then it is I whom you are seeking, let these men go" (that the word which
he had spoken might be fulfilled, “Of those whom thou hast given me, I 10 did not lose one"). At this, Simon Peter, who wore a sword, drew it and
struck the slave of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. (The slave's 11 name was Malchus). Jesus then said to Peter, "Put the sword into the
sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me ?" 12 So the cohort and the tribune and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus 13 and bound him, and led him first to Annas; he was the father-in-law of 14 Kaiaphas, who was high priest for that year. (It was Kaiaphas who had
counselled the Jews that it was for their advantage that one man should 19 die for the people.
The high priest therefore questioned Jesus 20 about his disciples and about his teaching. Jesus answered him, “I have
spoken openly to the world : I have taught always in synagogue and
temple, where all the Jews gather, nor have I spoken of anything in secret. 21 Why question me? Question those who have heard me, upon what I said 22 to them. Look, these men know what I said !” Now when he said this,
one of the officers who was standing by gave Jesus a blow, saying, 23 “ Answerest thou the high priest so?” Jesus answered him, “If I have
spoken wrongly, give evidence of the wrong ; but if rightly, why beat 24 me?” So Annas sent him bound to Kaiaphas the high priest. 15 Now Simon Peter along with another disciple followed Jesus. That
disciple was known to the high priest ; so he entered the high priest's 16 palace along with Jesus, while Peter stood outside at the door. Thereupon
the other disciple (who was known to the high priest) went out, and after 17 speaking to the woman who kept the door, brought Peter in. The maid
servant therefore who kept the door says to Peter, “But art not thou one 18 of this man's disciples also ?” He says, "No." Now the slaves and the
officers were standing at a fire of coals which they had made, because it 25 was cold. And Peter also stood beside them and warmed himself. So they
said to him, “But art not thou one of his disciples also ?" He. denied it 26 and said, "No." Says one of the slaves of the high priest (who was a
kinsman of the man whose ear Peter had cut off), "Did I not see thee 27 myself along with him in the garden?" At this Peter denied it again.
And immediately the cock crowed. 28 They led Jesus then from the house of Kaiaphas into the praetorium.
Now it was early, and they did not enter the praetorium themselves, in order
that they might be able to eat the paschal lainb instead of being polluted. 29 So Pilate went out to them and says, “What charge do you bring against 30 this man?” They answered and said, “Were this man not a wrongdoer, 31 we would not have delivered him up to thee.” Pilate then said to them,
“Take him yourselves and judge him by your law." The Jews said to 32 him, “We have no right to put anyone to death” (that the word which
Jesus had spoken might be fulfilled, when he indicated the kind of death 33 he was to die).
Pilate then entered the praetorium once more, and 34 calling Jesus he said to him, “Art thou the king of the Jews ?” Jesus
replied, “Sayest thou this of thyself, or did others tell thee about me ?" 35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Thy nation and the high priests have 36 delivered thee to me. What hast thou done?” Jesus answered, “My
reign is not of this world. Were my reign of this world, my officers
would have fought to prevent me from being delivered to the Jews. But, 37 as it is, my realm is not from hence.” Pilate then said to him, “So thou
art a king!” Jesus replied, “ Certainly, I am a king. For this have I
been born and for this have I come into the world, to bear witness to the 38 truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.” Pilate says to him, “Truth! what is truth?”
And after saying this he went out once more to the Jews and says to them, “I cannot discover any 39 crime in him. But you have a custom that at the passover I should
release one man for you. Is it your will then that I release for you the 40 king of the Jews ?” At this they cried out again, “Not this man, but
Bar-Abbas !” Now Bar-Abbas was a robber. 191,2 Now after that Pilate took and scourged Jesus. And the soldiers
plaited a wreath out of some thorns and put it on his head; they also 3 arrayed him in a purple robe, and kept going up to him and saying, 4 “Hail, king of the Jews !” giving him blows.
And Pilate once inore went outside and says to them, “Look, I am bringing him out 5 to you, to let you know that I cannot discover any crime in him !” So
Jesus came out, wearing the wreath of thorns and the purple robe. And 6 Pilate says to them, “Here is the man!” So, on seeing him, the high
priests and attendants clamoured, “Crucify him! crucify him!” Pilate
says to them, “ Take him yourselves and crucify him. As for me, I 7 cannot discover any crime in him." The Jews answered him, “We have
a law, and by the law he ought to die, because he made himself out to be 8 God's son." So when Pilate heard this saying, he was still more afraid ; 9 and again he entered the praetorium and says to Jesus, “Whence art 10 thou ?" But Jesus made no reply to him. Pilate then says to him, “Thou wilt not speak to me? Knowest thou not that I have power to release
11 thee and power to crucify thee?” Jesus answered him, “Thou wouldst
have no power at all over me, had it not been given thee from above; 12 therefore he has the greater sin who delivered me to thee." Upon this
Pilate sought to release him ; but the Jews kept clamouring, “If thou
dost release this man, thou art no friend of Caesar's : everyone who 13 makes himself out to be a king, is a rebel against Caesar." On hearing
these words then, Pilate brought Jesus outside and sat down on the
tribunal at a place called “The tesselated pavement” (in Hebrew it is 14 “ Gabbatha"). Now it was the day of preparation for the passover: it
was about the sixth hour. And he says to the Jews, “Look, it is your 15 king!” At that they clamoured, “Away with him! away with him !
crucify him!” Pilate says to them, “Am I to crucify your king ?” The 16 high priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar." Now after that he
delivered him up to them to be crucified. 17 So they took Jesus ; and he went out, bearing the cross for himself,
to what is called “The place of a skull” (which in Hebrew is called 18 “Golgotha”), and there they crucified him, and along with him two others, 19 one on each side, Jesus being in the middle. Pilate also wrote a title
and had it put upon the cross; and what was written was, JESUS THE 20 NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then was read
by many of the Jews, as the place where Jesus was crucified was near the 21 city, and as the writing was in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. So the high
priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Write not, The King of the Jews'; 22 write that “he said, I am King of the Jews.'" Pilate answered, “What
I have written, I have written." 23 Now when the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments
and made them into four parts, one part for every soldier. They also
took the tunic. Now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from the 24 top. So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, let us cast lots to decide whose it is to be”-that the scripture might be fulfilled which says,
They distributed my garments among them,
And over my apparel they cast lots. 25 This then was what the soldiers did.
Now beside the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Klopas, also 26 Mary of Magdala. So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom
he loved standing by, he says to his mother, “Woman, there is thy son!” 27 Then he says to the disciple, “Son, there is thy mother!” And from that 28 hour the disciple took her to his home.
After this, aware that all had now been finished, Jesus says-in order that the scripture might 29 be accomplished—“I thirst." A vessel full of vinegar was lying there.
So they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon a lance 1 and held it to his 30 mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, “It is 31 finished.” He bent his head and gave up his spirit.
As it was the day of preparation, then, in order to prevent the bodies remaining upon the cross during the sabbath (for that sabbath-day was a great day),
the Jews asked Pilate to have their legs broken and the bodies taken 32 away. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man, and of 33 the other man who was crucified along with him. However, when they
came to Jesus and saw that he was dead already, they did not break his 34 legg ; but one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance, and im35 mediately there came out blood and water. And he who saw it has
borne witness, and his witness is true (yea, he knows he is telling the 36 truth), that you also may believe. For this came to pass that the
1 Reading úroã.
37 scripture might be fulfilled, No bone of him shall be broken. And again
another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they impaled. 38 Now after this, Joseph of Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus—but
a secret disciple for fear of the Jews-asked Pilate that he might take
away the body of Jesus And Pilate gave him permission. So he went 39 and took away his body; and Nikodemus also went (he who had come to
him at first by night), with about a hundred pounds of myrrh and aloes 40 mixed. So they took and swathed the body of Jesus in linen bandages 41 with the spices, according to the Jewish custom of burial. Now at the
place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new 42 tomb where as yet no man had ever been laid. So on account of the
Jews' day of preparation, seeing that the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
201 Now on the first day of the week Mary of Magdala goes to the tomb
very early, when it was still dark, and sees the stone removed from the 2 tomb. So she runs and goes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple,
whom Jesus loved, and says to them, “They have removed the Lord from 3 the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.” Peter went out
then with the other disciple, and they went on their way to the tomb. 4 They both ran together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter 5 and reached the tomb first; and on gazing in he sees the linen bandages 6 lying. However he did not go in. Now Simon Peter also comes, following
him; and he went into the tomb, and notices the linen bandages lying, 7 and also that the napkin, which had been upon his head, was not lying 8 with the linen bandages but was wrapped up in a place by itself. Then
the other disciple, who had come to the tomb first, went in and saw and 9 believed. (For as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must rise 10 again from the dead.) Thereupon the disciples went away again to their 11 home. Mary stood outside at the tomb, weeping. Now as she wept, she 12 gazed into the tomb; and she notices two angels in white sitting where 13 the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. And
they say to her, “Woman, why weepest thou ?” She says to them,
“Because they have removed my Lord, and I know not where they have 14 laid him.” She said this and turned back; and she notices Jesus 15 standing, yet she did not know it was Jesus. Jesus says to her, “Woman,
why weepest thou ? whom seekest thou ?” Imagining him to be the
gardener, she says to him, “Sir, if it was thou who didst carry him off, 16 tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away." Jesus says
to her, “Mary.” She turns and says to him, in Hebrew, “Rabbuni" 17 (that is, “Teacher"). Jesus says to her, “Touch me not, for I have not
ascended yet to the Father ; but go to my brothers and say to them : 'I 18 ascend to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'” Mary
of Magdala goes to the disciples with the news, “I have seen the Lord,”
and that he had said this to her. 19 So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and
when the doors at the place where the disciples were had been shut for
fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and says to them, 20 “ Peace to you !" And saying this he showed them his hands and his 21 side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. So he 1
says to them once more, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent me 22 forth, so also am I sending you.” And saying this he breathed on them and says to them, “Receive the holy Spirit;
1 Omitting [[o 'Ixorows].
23 If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven;
If you retain them, they are retained.” 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve (that is, “the Twin ”), was not with 25 them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen
the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in
his hands, and put my finger into the mark of the nails, and put my hand 26 into his side, I will not believe.” And after eight days his disciples were
once more within the house, and Thomas with them. Jesus came,
though the doors had been shut, and stood in the midst and said, “ Peace 27 to you !” Then he says to Thomas, “Reach hither thy finger, here are
my hands! Reach thy hand also, and put it into my side, and be not 28 incredulous, but believe." Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord 29 and my God!” Jesus says to him,
“ Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed :
30 Many other signs indeed did Jesus perform in presence of his dis31 ciples, which are not written in this book ; but these have been written
that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his Name.
21 1 rAfter this Jesus disclosed himself once more to the disciples at the
2 sea of Tiberias. He disclosed himself in this way. Simon Peter and
Thomas (that is, “the Twin ”) and Nathanael of Kana in Galilee and the 3 sons of Žebedee and two others of his disciples were together. Simon
Peter says to them, “I am going to fish." They say to him, “We are
coming with thee too." They went out and embarked in the boat, but 4 that night they caught nothing. Now at the break of day Jesus stood 5 upon the beach : however, the disciples did not know it was Jesus. So
Jesus says to them, “Lads, have you caught any fish ?" They answered 6 him, “No." And he said to thein, “Throw the net on the right side of
the boat, and you shall find something." So they threw the net, and now 7 they could not haul it in for the multitude of fish. That disciple then whom Jesus loved says to Peter, “It is the Lord.” So on hearing it was
the Lord, Simon Peter girt his blouse round him (for he was unclad) and 8 plunged into the sea ; meanwhile the other disciples came in the small
boat (for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards off) 9 dragging the netful of fish. So when they got ashore, they see a fire of 10 coals laid, and some fish laid on it, and bread. Jesus says to them, 11 “Bring some of the fish you caught just now." Simon Peter then went
on board and hauled the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and
fifty-three of them; and for all their number, the net was not torn. 12 Jesus says to them, “Come and breakfast.” (Now none of the disciples
dared to inquire of him, “Who art thou ?” for they knew it was the 13 Lord.) Jesus goes, takes the bread and gives it to them; and so with the 14 fish. This was the third time now, that Jesus was disclosed to the
disciples after he had risen from the dead. 15 So when they had breakfasted, Jesus says to Simon Peter, “Simon,
