* I am not of the world.
Christ frayeth for his afiostles. CHAP.
CHAP. XVII. * 1 Christ frayeth to his Father to glorify him, 6 and to fireserve his apostles, 11 in unity, 17 and in truth. THESE words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glority thee: 2 As thou hast É. him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the o true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. . 4 I have glorified thee on the earth : I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine ownself, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gayest me I have kept, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to thee, and these thin speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20 Neither pray I for these alone; but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me, I have given them ; that they may be one, even as we are one. 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast scnt me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love where with thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them. CHAP. XVIII. 1 Judas betrayeth Jesus. 15 Peter denieth him. 28 He is arraigned before Pilate. W HEN Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. 2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus oft-times resorted thither with his disciples. 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns, and torches, and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? 5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 9 That the saying might be fulfilled which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me, have I lost none. 10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. 11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up 836 Peter denieth Jesus.
thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it *
12 Then the band, and the captain, and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
13 And led him away to Annas first, (for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas,
which was the high priest that same year.) 14 Now Caiaphas was he which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. 15 T And Simon Peter followed ło, and so did another disciple. That disciple was known unto the high P. and went in with Jesus, into the palace of the high priest. 16. But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17. Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of
this man's disciples 2 He saith, I am not.
18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; (for it was cold,) and they warmed themselves : and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself. 19 || The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world ; I ever taught in the syna e, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort ; and in secret have I said nothing. 21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them : behold, they know what I said. 22 And when he had thus spoken, one
of the officers which stood by, struck Je- |
sus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so * 23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me? 24 (Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.) 25 And Simon Peterstood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples 2 He denied it, and said, I am not. 26 One of the servants of the high priest, (being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off.) saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him 27. Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew. 28 s Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early ; and they themselves went not into the judgment-hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover. 29 Pilate then went out unto them,
and said, What accusation bring yeagainst this man 2 30 They answered and said unto him. If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee. 31 Then said Pilate unto thern. Take e him, and judge him according to your aw. The Jews therefore said unto him It is not lawful for us to put any man to death : 32. That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die. 33 Then Pilate entered into the judg: ment-hall, again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews 2 34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me 2 35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? thine own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee unto me: what has: thou done * 36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight. that I should not be ivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thon sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice. 38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth 2 And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all 39 But ye have a custom that I should release unto you one at passover: will K. therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Now Barabbas was a robber. CHAP. XIX. 1 Christ is scourged, crowned orth thorns, beaten, and j. 28 He dieth, 38, and is buried by Joseful, and .Vicodemus. HEN Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. 2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews and they smote him with their hands. 4 Pilate therefore went forth. in, and saith unto them, Behold, I §§ forth to you, that ye may know that. I | find no fault in him. 5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the
crown of thorns, and the purple robe.
man' 6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him : for I find no fault in him. 7. The Jews answered him, We have a haw, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. 8 || When Pilate therefore heard that * he was the more afraid; 9 And went again into the judgmenthall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. 10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not, that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee * 11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me; except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin. , 12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him : but the Jews cried out, saying. If thou let this mango, thou art not Cesar's friend. Whosoever maketh himself a king, speaketh against Cesar. 13 || When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment-seat, in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. 14 And it was the preparation of the o, and about the sixth hour: and e saith unto the Jews, Behold your King ! 15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar. 16. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. 17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the filace of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha: 18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. 19 s And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JFSUS ()F NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. 21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

23 Ms Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was with
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it whose it shall be : that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did, 25 || Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. . 26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciples standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy Son! 27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. 28 || After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. 31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath-day (for that sabbath-day was an high-day) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. 33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came thereout blood and water. S5 And he that saw it, bare record. and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. 36. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 37. And again another scripture saith, | They shall look on him whom they pierced. "o"And after this, Joseph of Arimathea (being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews) besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus. | 39 And there came also Nicodemus

and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. 40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes, with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified, there was a garden ; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. 42 There laid they Jesus therefore, because of the Jews preparation-day, for the sepulchre was nigh at hand. CHAP, XX. 11 Jesus afficareth unto Mary, 19 and to his discifiles. 24 Thomas’ incredulity, 26 and confession. To first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the scpulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying ; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie ; 7 And the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. 11 * But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulchre, 12 And seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lien. 13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou ? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him

hence, tell me where thou hast laid him. and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master. 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not: for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, i. that he had spoken these things unto er. 19 s Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the ... when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive i. the Holy Ghost. 23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained. 24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 of And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them : then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, be| cause thou hast seen me, thou hast be|lieved: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. 30 T And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his discipies, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son
of God, and that beheving ye might have life through his name.
Christ affleareth again. CHAP, XXI. 1 Christ, appearing again, 15, giveth Peter a charge ; 22 and rebuketh his curiosity. FTER these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias: and on this wise shewed he himself. 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomascalled Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately ; and that night they caught nothing. 4. But when the morning was now eome, Jesus stood on the shore : but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat: They answered him, No. 6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude ef fishes. 7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked) and did cast himself into the sea. 8 And the other disciples came in a little ship (for they were not far from land,
put as it were two hundred cubits) drag- ||
ging the net with fishes. 9 As soon then as they were come to

fish laid thereon, and bread.

sus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead. 15 || So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these ? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord : thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Fced my lambs. 16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me He saith unto him, Yea, Lord: thou knowest that I love thee. him, Feed my sheep. 17. He saith unto him the third time, Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me * Peter was grieved, because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my o 18 Verily, verily, Isay unto thee, When thou wast, young, thog girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. 19 This spake he, si o what | death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, | Follow me. 20 Then Peter turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved, following; (which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee 2) 31 Peter seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do * 22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me. 23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, if I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee * 24. This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they

should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain | the books that should be written. Amen.
