The Good News According to Yahchanan [John]

Yahuchanan means: Yahwah is merciful and gracious.
Yah-hahn-en with the emphasis on the middle syllable, which rhymes with John

Chapter 1

1 In the beginning was The Word [the Law, the Plan, Ea]. The Word was with Yahwah [YHWH, An, the Almighty Father]. The Word was one of the gods.

2 The same was in the beginning with Yahwah.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.

4 In Him is life, and the life is the Light of men [Isaiah 49:6].

5 The Light shined in the darkness [world of Satan, Enlil], and the darkness did not comprehend it.

6 There came a man, sent from Yahwah, whose name was Yahchanan [John].

7 The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the Light, that all might believe [in the Light] through him.

8 He was not the Light, but came that he might bear witness of the Light.

9 There was the true Light coming into the world, even the Light which lights every man.

10 He [the Word] was in the world, and the world was made through Him, but the world did not know Him.

11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of Yahwah, even to those who believe on Yahwah's Name.

13 They were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Yahwah.

14 The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us. We saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth [Gospel of Nazarenes: Prologue].

15 Yahchanan bore witness of Him, and cried, saying: This is He of whom I said; He who comes after me ranks before me, for He was before me.

16 Of His fullness we all receive, grace for grace.

17 The Law was given through Moshe, grace and truth come through Yahushua the Messiah [not: Jesus Christ].

18 No man has seen Yahwah at any time. The unique Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He declared Him.

19 This is the witness of Yahchanan, when the Yahudim [Jews] sent priests and Levites to him from Yerusalem to ask him: Who are you?

20 He confessed, did not deny, he confessed: I am not the Messiah.

21 They asked him: What then? Are you Eliyah? He said: I am not. Are you the prophet [to come; Deuteronomy 18:15, Daniel 9:25]? He answered: No.

22 They said to him: Who are you? That we may give an answer to those who sent us, what do you say of yourself?

23 He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Make straight the way of Yahwah: as said Yeshayah the prophet [Isaiah 40:3].

24 They were sent from the Pharisees.

25 They asked him, and said to him: Why then do you immerse [baptise], if you are not the Messiah, nor Eliyah, nor the prophet [to come]?

26 Yahchanan answered them, saying: I immerse in water. In the midst of you stands One whom you do not know.

27 Even He who comes after me, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to unloose.

28 These things were done in Bethany beyond the Yordan [Jordan River], where Yahchanan was immersing.

29 The next day he saw Yahshua coming to him, and said: Behold, the Lamb of Yahwah, who takes away the sin of the world!

30 This is He of whom I said: After me comes a man who is before me, for He was before me.

31 I did not know him, but I came immersing in water so that He should be made manifest to Yisrayah [Israel].

32 Yahchanan bore witness, saying: I saw the Spirit descending out of heaven as a dove, and it abode upon Him.

33 I did not know [it is] him. He who sent me to immerse in water, He said to me: Upon whomsoever you see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon Him, the same is He who immerses in Yahwah's Spirit.

34 I saw, and bear witness, this is the Son of Yahwah.

35 The day after that Yahchanan was standing, and two of his disciples.

36 He looked upon Yahshua as He walked, and said: Behold, the Lamb of Yahwah!

37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Yahshua.

38 Yahshua turned, saw them following, and said to them: What do you seek? They said to Him: Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted: Teacher), where do you abide?

39 He said to them: Come, and you will see. They came therefore and saw where He abode, and they abode with Him that day. It was about the tenth hour.

40 One of the two who heard Yahchanan speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Kepha's brother. [the other was probably Miriam Magdalene]

41 He found his own brother Simon first, and said to him: We found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted: The Anointed [of Yahwah]).

42 He brought him to Yahshua. Yahshua looked upon him, and said: You are Simon the son of Yahchanan. You will be called Kepha (which is by interpretation: a stone). [Peter means: father]

43 The next day He was minded to go forth into Galilee. He found Philip, and Yahshua says to him: Follow Me.

44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Kepha.

45 Philip found Nathanyah, and said to him: We found Him of whom Moshe [Moses] wrote in the law and the prophets [Deuteronomy 18:15]: Yahshua of Nazareth, the son of Yahusef.

46 Nathanyah said to him: Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip says to him: Come and see.

47 Yahshua saw Nathanyah coming to Him, and says of him: Behold, a Yisrayahite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanyah says to Him: How do you know me? Yahshua answered, and said to him: Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.

49 Nathanyah answered him: Rabbi, you are the Son of Yahwah. You are King of Yisrayah.

50 Yahshua answered, and said to him: You believe because I said to you: I saw you underneath the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.

51 He said to him: Verily, verily, I say to you, You will see the heaven opened, and the servants of Yahwah ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Chapter 2

1 The third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Yahshua was there.

2 Yahshua and His disciples were also bidden to the marriage.

3 When the wine failed, the mother of Yahshua said to Him: They have no wine.

4 Yahshua said to her: Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour is not yet come.

5 His mother said to the servants: Whatsoever He says to you, do it.

6 Now there were six waterpots of stone set there after the Yahudim [Jewish] manner of purifying, containing two or three firkins apiece.

7 Yahshua said to them: Fill the waterpots with water. They filled them up to the brim.

8 He said to them: Draw out now, and bear to the ruler of the feast. They bore it.

9 The ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know whose it was, but the servants who drew the water knew. The ruler of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 and said to him: Every man sets the good wine on first, and when men become drunk, then that which is worse. You kept the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of His signs Yahshua did in Cana of Galilee. He manifested His glory, and His disciples believed on Him.

12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He, his mother, His brothers, and His disciples. There they abode not many days.

13 The passover of the Yahudim was at hand, and Yahshua went up to Yerusalem.

14 In the temple He found those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, and the changers of money sitting.

15 He made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, even the sheep and the oxen. He poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables.

16 To those who sold the doves He said: Take these things away, do not make my Father's house a house of merchandise.

17 His disciples remembered that it was written: Zeal for your house eats me up [Psalm 69:9].

18 The Yahudim therefore answered, and said to Him: What sign do you show to us, seeing you do these things?

19 Yahshua answered, and said to them: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

20 The Yahudim therefore said: Forty and six years this temple was in building, and you will raise it up in three days?

21 But He spoke of the temple of His body.

22 When therefore He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered He spoke this. They believed the scripture, and the word Yahshua said.

23 Now when He was in Yerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed on His Name, seeing His signs which He did.

24 Yahshua did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all men.

25 He did not need that anyone should bear witness concerning man, for He himself knew what was in man.

Chapter 3

1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Yahudim.

2 The same came to Him by night, and said to Him: Rabbi, we know you are a teacher come from Adonai. No one can do these signs you do, except Adonai is with Him.

3 Yahshua answered, and said to him: Verily, verily, I say to you, Except one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of Yahwah.

4 Nicodemus says to Him: How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Yahshua answered: Verily, verily, I say to you, Except one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yahwah!

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Do not marvel that I said to you: You must be born anew.

8 The wind blows where it likes. You hear the voice of it, but can not tell where it comes from, and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered, and said to Him: How can these things be?

10 Yahshua answered, and said to him: Are you the teacher of Yisrayah, yet not understand these things?

11 Verily, verily, I say to you, We speak what we know, and bear witness of what we have seen. You do not receive our witness.

12 If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

13 No one has ascended into heaven except He who descended out of heaven, even the Son of man, who is in heaven [Proverbs 30:4].

14 As Moshe lifted up the serpent in the wilderness (Numbers 21:8-9), even so must the Son of man be lifted up,

15 that whosoever is believing in Him may have eternal life.

16 Yahwah so loved the hidden ones He gave His unique Son, that whosoever continues believing in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

17 Yahwah did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.

18 He who believes on Him is not judged. He who does not believe is judged already, because he is not believing on the Name of the unique Son of Yahwah.

19 This is the judgment: the Light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their works are evil.

20 Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, unless his works would be reproved.

21 He who does the truth comes to the Light, that his works may be made manifest, that they are wrought in Yahwah.

22 After these things Yahshua and His disciples came into the land of Yahudah [Judah, Judaea]. There He tarried with them, and immersed.

23 Yahchanan also was immersing in Enon near to Salim, because there was much water there. They came, and were immersed.

24 For Yahchanan was not yet cast into prison.

25 There arose therefore a questioning on the part of Yahchanan's disciples with a Yahudi [Jew] about purifying.

26 They came to Yahchanan, and said to him: Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Yordan, to whom you bore witness, behold, the same immerses, and all men come to Him.

27 Yahchanan answered, and said: A man can receive nothing, except it is given him from heaven.

28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said: I am not Messiah, but, that I am sent before Him.

29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Thus my joy therefore is made full.

30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

31 He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth is of the earth, and of the earth he speaks. He who comes from heaven is above all.

32 What He has seen and heard, of that He bears witness, and no man receives His witness.

33 He who received His witness set his seal to this, that Yahwah is true.

34 He whom Yahwah sent speaks the words of Yahwah, He does not give the Spirit by measure.

35 The Father loves the Son, and gave all things into His hand.

36 He who is believing in the Son has eternal life. He who does not obey the Son will not see life, the wrath of Yahwah abides on him.

Chapter 4

1 When the Master knew the Pharisees heard Yahshua was making and immersing more disciples than Yahchanan

2 (although Yahshua himself did not immerse, but His disciples),

3 He left Yahudah, and departed again into Galilee.

4 He had to pass through Samaria.

5 So He comes to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Yaacob [Jacob] gave to his son Yahusef [Joseph].

6 Yaacob's well was there. Yahshua sat by the well, being wearied with His journey. It was about the sixth hour.

7 There comes a woman of Samaria to draw water. Yahshua said to her: Give me to drink.

8 For His disciples were gone away into the city to buy food.

9 The Samaritan woman therefore says to Him: How is it that you, being a Yahudi, asks drink of me, who am a Samaritan woman? (For Yahudim have no dealings with Samaritans.)

10 Yahshua answered, and said to her: If you knew the gift of Yahwah, and who it is that says to you, Give Me to drink; you would have asked of Him, and He would have given you living water.

11 The woman says to Him: Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do you have that living water?

12 Are you greater than our father Yaacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, with his sons, and his cattle?

13 Yahshua answered, and said to her: Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again.

14 Whosoever drinks of the water I give him will never thirst. The water I give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

15 The woman says to him: Sir, give me this water, that I not thirst, nor come all the way here to draw.

16 Yahshua says to her: Go, call your husband, and come here.

17 The woman answered, and said to Him: I have no husband. Yahshua says to her: You said well, I have no husband.

18 You have had five husbands, and he whom you have now is not your husband. This you said truly.

19 The woman said to Him: Sir, I perceive you are a prophet.

20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain, and the Yahudim say in Yerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

21 Yahshua says to her: Woman, believe Me, the hour comes when you will worship the Father neither in this mountain, nor in Yerusalem.

22 You worship that which you do not know. We worship what we know, for salvation is from the Yahudim.

23 The hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such does the Father seek to be His worshippers.

24 Yahwah is a Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

25 The woman says to Him: I know Messiah comes (He who is called: Anointed One). When He is come, He will declare all things to us.

26 Yahshua says to her: I AM he who speaks to you.

27 And upon this His disciples came. They marvelled that he was speaking with a woman, yet no man said: What do you seek? Or: Why do you speak with her?

28 So the woman left her waterpot, went away into the city, and said to the people:

29 Come, see a man who told me all things I ever did. Can this be the Messiah?

30 They went out of the city, and were coming to Him.

31 In the meanwhile the disciples requested Him, saying: Rabbi, eat.

32 But He said to them: I have meat to eat that you do not know.

33 The disciples therefore said one to another: Has any man brought Him anything to eat?

34 Yahshua said to them: My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to accomplish His work.

35 Do you not say, There are yet four months, and then the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are already ripe to harvest.

36 He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit to life eternal, that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

37 For so the saying is true: One sows, and another reaps.

38 I sent you to reap that which you did not labor on, others labored, and you are entered into their labor.

39 Many of the Samaritans from that city believed on Him because of the word of the woman, who testified: He told me all things I ever did.

40 So when the Samaritans came to Him, they begged Him to abide with them, and He abode there two days.

41 Many more believed because of His Word.

42 They said to the woman: Now we believe, but not because of your speaking. We have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.

43 After the two days He went forth from there into Galilee.

44 Yahshua Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in His own country.

45 So when He came into Galilee the Galilaeans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Yerusalem at the feast, for they also went to the feast.

46 He came therefore again to Cana of Galilee, where He made the water wine. There was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.

47 When he heard Yahshua was come out of Yahudah into Galilee, he went to Him, and begged Him that He would come down, and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.

48 Yahshua therefore said to him: Except you see signs and wonders, you will in no way believe.

49 The nobleman says to him: Sir, come down before my child dies.

50 Yahshua says to him: Go your way, your son lives. The man believed the word Yahshua spoke to him, and he went his way.

51 As he was now going down, his servants met him, saying that his son lived.

52 So he inquired of them the hour when he began to amend. They said therefore to him: Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

53 So the father knew it was at that hour in which Yahshua said to him: Your son lives. He believed, and his whole house.

54 This is again the second sign Yahshua did, having come out of Yahudah into Galilee.

Chapter 5

1 After these things there was a feast of the Yahudim, and Yahshua went up to Yerusalem.

2 Now there is in Yerusalem by the sheep gate a pool (which is called in Hebrew: Bethesda) having five porches.

3 In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, halt, and withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

4 [For a servant of Yahwah went down at certain seasons into the pool, and troubled the water. Whosoever then stepped in first after the troubling of the waters was made whole from whatsoever disease he was held.]

5 A certain man was there, who was thirty and eight years in his infirmity.

6 Yahshua saw him lying, and knew he had now been a long time in that case. He said to him: Would you be made whole?

7 The sick man answered Him: Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is troubled. While I am coming, another steps down before me.

8 Yahshua says to him: Arise, take up your bed, and walk.

9 Straightaway the man was made whole, took up his bed, and walked. Now it was the sabbath on that day.

10 So the Yahudim said to him who was cured: It is the sabbath, it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.

11 But he answered them: He who made me whole, the same said to me: Take up your bed, and walk.

12 They asked him: Who is the man who said to you, Take up your bed, and walk?

13 But he who was healed did not know who it was, for Yahshua had conveyed Himself away, a multitude being in the place.

14 Afterward Yahshua found him in the temple, and said to him: Behold, you are made whole. Sin no more, unless a worse thing happen to you.

15 The man went away, and told the Yahudim it was Yahshua who made him whole.

16 For this reason the Yahudim persecuted Yahshua: because He did these things on the sabbath.

17 Yahshua answered them: My Father works even until now, and I work.

18 For this reason therefore the Yahudim tried the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the sabbath, but also called Yahwah His own Father, making Himself equal with Yahwah.

19 Yahshua therefore answered, and said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father doing. What things soever He does, these the Son also does in like manner.

20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that Himself does. Greater works than these He will show Him, that you may marvel.

21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He will.

22 The Father does not judge any man. He gave all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father.

23 He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

24 Verily, verily, I say to you, He who hears my word (and is believing Him who sent Me) has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

25 Verily, verily, I say to you, The hour comes, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of Yahwah. Those who hear will live.

26 For as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself.

27 He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is a son of man.

28 Do not marvel at this. The hour comes in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth.

29 Those who did good, to the resurrection of life. Those who did evil, to the resurrection of judgment.

30 I can do nothing of myself. As I hear, I judge. My judgment is righteous because I do not seek my own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

32 It is another who bears witness of Me, and I know the witness which he witnesses of Me is true.

33 You sent to Yahchanan, and he bore witness to the truth.

34 The witness which I receive is not from man, however I say these things that you may be saved.

35 He was the lamp that burned and shined, and you were willing to rejoice for a season in his light.

36 But the witness which I have is greater than that of Yahchanan. The works which the Father gave Me to accomplish, the very works that I do bear witness of Me, that the Father sent Me.

37 The Father who sent Me, He bore witness of Me. You have not heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.

38 You do not have His Word abiding in you, for whom He sent, Him you do not believe.

39 You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life, and these are they which bear witness of Me.

40 You will not come to Me, that you may have life.

41 I do not receive glory from men.

42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of Yahwah in yourselves.

43 I am come in my Father's Name, and you do not receive Me. If another comes in his own name, him you receive.

44 How can you believe, who receive glory one of another, and you do not seek the glory that comes only from Yahwah?

45 Do not think I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accused you, even Moshe [Moses], on whom you set your hope.

46 If you believed Moshe, you would believe Me, for he wrote of Me [Deuteronomy 18:15-19, etc].

47 If you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?

Chapter 6

1 After these things Yahshua went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

2 A great multitude followed Him, because they saw the signs He did on those who were sick.

3 Yahshua went up into the mountain, and He sat there with His disciples.

4 Now the passover, the feast of the Yahudim, was at hand.

5 Lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a great multitude comes to Him, Yahshua says to Philip: Where are we to buy bread, that these may eat?

6 This He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.

7 Philip answered Him: Two hundred shillings worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that everyone may take a little.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Kepha's brother, said to Him:

9 There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves, and two fishes, but what are these among so many?

10 Yahshua said: Make the people sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11 Yahshua therefore took the loaves, and after giving thanks, He distributed to those who were set down. Likewise also of the fishes as much as they would.

12 When they were filled, He said to His disciples: Gather up the broken pieces which remain over, that nothing is lost.

13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over to those who ate.

14 When the people saw the sign He did, they said: This is of a truth the prophet that comes into the world [Deuteronomy 18:15].

15 Yahshua perceived they were about to come and take Him by force, to make Him king, so He withdrew again into the mountain Himself alone.

16 When evening came, His disciples went down to the sea.

17 They entered into a boat, and were going over the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Yahshua had not yet come to them.

18 The sea was rising by reason of a great wind that blew.

19 When they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they saw Yahshua walking on the sea, drawing near the boat, and they were afraid.

20 But He said to them: I AM. Do not be afraid.

21 They were willing therefore to receive Him into the boat, and straightaway the boat was at the land where they were going.

22 The next day the multitude who stood on the other side of the sea saw there was no other boat there, save one, and that Yahshua did not enter with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples went away alone

23 (however there came boats from Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the Master had given thanks).

24 When the multitude saw Yahshua was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Yahshua.

25 When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him: Rabbi, when did you come here?

26 Yahshua answered them, and said: Verily, verily, I say to you, You seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled.

27 Do not work for food which perishes, but for the food which abides to eternal life, which the Son of man gives to you. For Him the Father Yahwah has sealed.

28 They said therefore to Him: What must we do, that we may work the works of Yahwah?

29 Yahshua answered, and said to them: This is the work of Yahwah, that you believe on Him whom He sent.

30 They said to Him therefore: What then do you do for a sign, that we may see, and believe you? What work [do] you?

31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written: He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.

32 Yahshua therefore said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, It was not Moshe who gave you the bread out of heaven. My Father gave you the true bread out of heaven.

33 For the bread of Yahwah is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.

34 They said therefore to Him: Master, evermore give us this bread.

35 Yahshua said to them: I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who is believing in Me will never thirst.

36 I said to you, that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe.

37 All that which the Father gives me will come to Me, and I will in no way cast out him who comes to Me.

38 I am come down from heaven not to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

39 This is the will of Him who sent Me: that of all that which He gave Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.

40 This is the will of my Father: everyone who is seeing the Son, and continues believing in Him, should have eternal life. I will raise him up at the last day.

41 The Yahudim therefore murmured concerning Him, because He said: I AM the bread which came down out of heaven.

42 They said: Is this not Yeshua, the son of Yosef, whose father and mother we know? How does He now say: I am come down out of heaven?

43 Yahshua answered, and said to them: Do not murmur among yourselves.

44 No man can come to Me, except the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day.

45 It is written in the prophets: They will all be taught of Yahwah. Everyone who hears from the Father, and learns, comes to Him.

46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save He who is from Yahwah, He has seen the Father.

47 Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is believing has eternal life.

48 I am the bread of life.

49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.

50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that a man may eat of it, and not die.

51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he will live forever. Yea, the bread I give is my flesh, for the life of the world.

52 The Yahudim therefore strove one with another, saying: How can this man give us His flesh to eat?

53 Yahshua therefore said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.

54 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

56 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in Me, and I in him.

57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father; so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.

58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven, not as the fathers ate, and died. He who eats this bread will live forever.

59 These things He said in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum.

60 Many of His disciples, when they heard this, said: This is a hard saying, who can hear it?

61 Yahshua knew in Himself His disciples murmured at this, and said to them: Does this cause you to stumble?

62 What then if you should see the Son of man ascending where He was before?

63 It is the Spirit that gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words I spoke to you are spirit, and are life.

64 But there are some of you who do not believe. For Yahshua knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray Him.

65 He said: For this reason I said to you, No man can come to Me, except it is given to him of the Father.

66 Upon this many of His disciples went back, and walked with Him no more.

67 Yahshua said to the twelve therefore: Would you also go away?

68 Simon Kepha answered Him: Master, to whom will we go? You have the words of eternal life.

69 We believe and know you are the Set-Apart One of Yahwah.

70 Yahshua answered them: Did I not choose you the twelve, and one of you is a devil?

71 Now He spoke of Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for it was he who should betray Him, being one of the twelve.

Chapter 7

1 After these things Yahshua walked in Galilee. He would not walk in Yahudah, because the Yahudim wanted to kill Him.

2 Now a feast of the Yahudim, the feast of tabernacles, was at hand.

3 His brothers therefore said to Him: Depart here, and go into Yahudah, that your disciples also may see your works which you do.

4 For no man does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, manifest yourself to the world.

5 For even His brothers did not believe on Him.

6 Yahshua therefore said to them: My time is not yet come, but your time is always ready.

7 The world cannot hate you. Me it hates, because I testify of it, that its works are evil.

8 You go up to the feast. I do not go up to this feast because my time is not yet fulfilled.

9 Having said these things to them, He abode still in Galilee.

10 When His brothers were gone up to the feast, then He also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret.

11 The Yahudim looked for Him at the feast, and said: Where is He?

12 There was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning Him. Some said: He is a good man. Others said: Not so, He leads the multitude astray.

13 Yet no man spoke openly of Him for fear of the Yahudim.

14 When it was now the middle of the feast Yahshua went up into the temple, and taught.

15 The Yahudim therefore marvelled, saying: How does this man know letters, having never learned?

16 Yahshua answered them, and said: My teaching is not mine, but His who sent Me.

17 If any man wills to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of Yahwah, or whether I speak from myself.

18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory. He who seeks the glory of Him who sent Him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

19 Did Moshe not give you the Law, and yet none of you does the Law? Why do you seek to kill Me?

20 The multitude answered: You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?

21 Yahshua answered, and said to them: I did one work, and you all marvel because of it.

22 Moshe gave you circumcision (not that it is of Moshe, but of the fathers), and on the sabbath you circumcise a man.

23 If a man receives circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moshe is not broken; why are you angry with Me, because I made a man every bit whole on the sabbath?

24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

25 Some therefore of those of Yerusalem said: Is this not He whom they seek to kill?

26 Lo, He speaks openly, and they say nothing to Him. Can it be the rulers indeed know this is the Messiah?

27 However, we know this man, who He is. When the Messiah comes, no one knows who He is.

28 Yahshua therefore cried in the temple, teaching, and saying: You both know Me, and know who I am. I am not come of myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.

29 I know Him, because I am from Him, and He sent Me.

30 They tried therefore to take Him, but no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour was not yet come.

31 Of the multitude many believed on Him, and they said: When Messiah comes, will He do more signs than what this man does?

32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to take Him.

33 Yahshua therefore said: Yet a little while I am with you, and I go to Him who sent Me.

34 You will seek Me, and will not find Me. Where I am [kingdom of Yahwah], you cannot come.

35 The Yahudim therefore said among themselves: Where will this man go that we will not find Him? Will He go to the Dispersion [Lost Ten Tribes] among the Gentiles?

36 What is this word He said: You will seek Me, and will not find Me? Where I am, you cannot come?

37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Yahshua stood and cried, saying: If any man thirst, let him come to Me and drink.

38 He who is believing in Me, as the scriptures say, from within him will flow rivers of living water.

39 But He spoke this of the Spirit, which those who believe on Him were to receive (the Spirit was not yet given because Yahshua was not yet glorified).

40 When they heard these words, some of the multitude said: This is of a truth the prophet [Deuteronomy 18:15].

41 Others said: This is the Messiah. But some said: What, does Messiah come out of Galilee?

42 Does the scripture not say the Messiah comes of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem [Micah 5:1-2], the village where David was?

43 So there arose a division in the multitude because of Him.

44 Some of them would have taken Him, but no man laid hands on Him.

45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them: Why did you not bring Him?

46 The officers answered: Never a man so spoke.

47 The Pharisees therefore answered them: Are you also led astray?

48 Has any of the rulers believed on Him, or of the Pharisees?

49 This multitude that does not know the law are accursed.

50 Nicodemus says to them (he who came to Him before, being one of them):

51 Does our law judge a man, except it first hear from himself and know what he does?

52 They answered, and said to him: Are you also of Galilee? Search, and see that out of Galilee arises no prophet.

53 They went every man to his own house.

Chapter 8

1 Yahshua went to the mount of Olives.

2 Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him. He sat down, and taught them.

3 [[The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman taken in adultery, and set her in the middle. [where is the man?]

4 They say to Him: Teacher, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now in the law Moshe commanded us to stone such. What do you say of her?

6 This they said, trying Him, that they might have something to accuse Him of. But Yahshua stooped down, and wrote on the ground with His finger.

7 When they continued asking Him, He lifted Himself up, and said to them: He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at her.

8 Again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground with His finger.

9 When they heard it, they went out one by one, beginning from the eldest, even to the last. Yahshua was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the middle [of the original crowd].

10 Yahshua lifted Himself up, and said to her: Woman, where are they? Did no man condemn you?

11 She said: No man, Master. Yahshua said: Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, from now on sin no more.]]

12 Yahshua spoke to them, saying: I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but has the light of life.

13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, you bear witness of yourself. Your witness is not true.

14 Yahshua answered, and said to them: Even if I bear witness of myself, my witness is true. I know where I came from, and where I go. You do not know where I come from, or where I go.

15 You judge after the flesh, I judge no man.

16 Yea, and if I judge, my judgment is true. I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent Me.

17 Yea, it is written in your law: The witness of two men is true.

18 I AM He who bears witness of myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.

19 They said therefore to him: Where is your Father? Yahshua answered: You do not know Me, nor my Father. If you knew Me, you would know my Father also.

20 These words He spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple. No man took Him, because His hour was not yet come.

21 He said therefore again to them: I go away. You will seek Me, and will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.

22 The Yahudim therefore said: Will He kill Himself? He says: Where I go, you cannot come?

23 He said to them: You are from beneath, I am from above. You are of this world, I am not of this world.

24 I said to you therefore, you will die in your sins. Except you believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.

25 They said to Him: Who are you? Yahshua said to them: Even who I spoke to you from the beginning.

26 I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you. He who sent Me is true. The things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world.

27 They did not perceive that He [Ea] spoke to them of the Father [An].

28 Yahshua therefore said: When you lift up the Son of man, then you will know that I AM. I do nothing of myself. As the Father taught Me, I speak these things.

29 He who sent Me is with Me. He does not leave Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.

30 As He spoke these things, many believed in Him.

31 Yahshua therefore said to those Yahudim who believed Him: If you abide in my word, then you are truly my disciples.

32 You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.

33 They answered to Him: We are Abraham's seed, and have never yet been in bondage to any man. How do you say, You will be made free?

34 Yahshua answered them: Verily, verily, I say to you, Everyone who commits sin is the bondservant of sin.

35 The bondservant does not abide in the house forever, the Son abides forever.

36 If the Son makes you free, you are free indeed.

37 I know you are Abraham's seed. Yet you seek to kill Me, because my Word does not have free course in you.

38 I speak the things I saw with my Father. You also do the things you heard from your father [satan].

39 They answered, and said to Him: Our father is Abraham. Yahshua said to them: If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.

40 But now you seek to kill Me, a man who tells you the truth, which I heard from Yahwah. This Abraham did not do.

41 You do the works of your father. They said to Him: We were not born of fornication. We have one Father, even The LORD.

42 Yahshua said to them: If Yahwah were your Father, you would love Me, for I came forth and am come from Yahwah. I did not come of myself, He sent Me.

43 Why do you not understand my speech? Even because you cannot hear my word.

44 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to do the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own. He is a liar, and the father of it.

45 Because I say the truth, you do not believe me.

46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I say truth, why do you not believe me?

47 He who is of Yahwah hears the words of Yahwah. For this reason you do not hear them: you are not of Yahwah.

48 The Yahudim answered, and said to Him: Do we not say correctly that you are a Samaritan, and have a demon?

49 Yahshua answered: I do not have a demon. I honor my Father, and you dishonor Me.

50 I do not seek my own glory, there is one who seeks and judges.

51 Verily, verily, I say to you, If a man keep my word, he will never see death.

52 The Yahudim said to Him: Now we know you have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets, yet you say: If a man keep my word, he will never taste of death.

53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died [also]. Who do you think you are?

54 Yahshua answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. My Father glorifies Me, of whom you say: He is your Father.

55 You do not know Him, but I know Him. If I should say: I do not know Him; I will be like you, a liar. I know Him, and keep His Word.

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day. He saw it, and was glad.

57 The Yahudim therefore said to Him: You are not yet fifty years old, and you have seen Abraham?

58 Yahshua said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, Before Abraham was born, I AM.

59 They took up stones therefore to cast at Him. But Yahshua hid Himself, and went out of the temple.

Chapter 9

1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from his birth.

2 His disciples asked Him, saying: Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind?

3 Yahshua answered: This man did not sin, nor his parents, but this is so the works of Yahwah could be made manifest in him.

4 We must work the works of Him who sent us, while it is day. The night comes, when no man can work.

5 When I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

6 When He had thus spoken, He spat on the ground, made clay of the spittle, anointed his eyes with the clay,

7 and said to him: Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation: Sent). He went away therefore, washed, and came seeing.

8 The neighbors, and those who saw him before, that he was a beggar, said: Is this not he who sat and begged?

9 Others said: It is he. Others said: No, but he is like him. He said: I am he.

10 They said therefore to him: How then were your eyes opened?

11 He answered: The man who is called Yahshua made clay, anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to Siloam, and wash. So I went away, washed, and I received sight.

12 They said to him: Where is He? He said: I do not know.

13 They brought to the Pharisees him who was blind before.

14 Now it was the sabbath on the day when Yahshua made the clay, and opened his eyes.

15 Again the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. He said to them: He put clay upon my eyes, I washed, and I see.

16 Some of the Pharisees said: This man is not from Yahwah, because He does not keep the sabbath. But others said: How can a man who is a sinner do such signs? There was division among them.

17 They said therefore to the blind man again: What do you say of Him, in that He opened your eyes? He said: He is a prophet.

18 The Yahudim therefore did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him who had received his sight,

19 and asked them, saying: Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?

20 His parents answered, and said: We know this is our son, and he was born blind.

21 How he now sees, we do not know. Who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him. He is of age, he will speak for himself.

22 These things his parents said, because they feared the Yahudim. The Yahudim had already agreed that if any man should confess Yahshua to be Messiah [annointed One of Yahwah], he should be put out of the synagogue.

23 Therefore his parents said: He is of age, ask him.

24 So they called a second time the man who was blind, and said to him: Give glory to God. We know this man [Yahshua] is a sinner.

25 He therefore answered: Whether He is a sinner, I do not know. One thing I know, whereas I was blind, now I see.

26 They said to him: What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?

27 He answered them: I told you even now, and you did not hear, why would you hear it again? Would you also become His disciples?

28 They reviled him, and said: You are His disciple. We are disciples of Moshe.

29 We know God spoke to Moshe. But as for this man, we do not know who He is.

30 The man answered, and said to them: Why, here is the marvel: you do not know who He is, and yet He opened my eyes.

31 We know Yahwah does not hear sinners. But if any man is a worshipper of Yahwah, and does His will, him He hears.

32 Since the world began it was never heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind.

33 If this man were not from Yahwah, He could do nothing.

34 They answered, and said to him: You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? They cast him out.

35 Yahshua heard that they cast him out. Finding him, He said: Do you believe in the Son of Yahwah?

36 He answered, and said: Who is He, Master, that I may believe in Him?

37 Yahshua said to him: You have both seen Him, and He it is who speaks with you.

38 He said: Master, I believe. He worshipped Him.

39 Yahshua said: I came into this world for judgment, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind.

40 Those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things, and said to Him: Are we also blind?

41 Yahshua said to them: If you were blind, you would have no sin. But now you say: We see. Your sin remains.

Chapter 10

1 Verily, verily, I say to you, He who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 He who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

3 To him the porter opens, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.

4 When he has put forth all his own, he goes before them. The sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

5 A stranger they will not follow, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.

6 This parable Yahshua spoke to them, but they did not understand what things they were which He spoke to them.

7 Yahshua therefore said to them again: Verily, verily, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

8 All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, the sheep did not hear them.

9 I am the door. If any man enter in by Me, he will be saved, will go in and go out, and will find pasture.

10 The thief [satan] does not come but that he may steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

12 He who is a hireling, not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep, and flees. The wolf snatches them, and scatters them.

13 He flees because he is a hireling, and does not care for the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and my own know Me,

15 even as the Father knows Me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold. Those also I must bring. They will hear my voice and they will become one flock, one shepherd.

17 Therefore does the Father love Me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.

18 No one takes it away from Me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment I received from my Father.

19 There arose a division again among the Yahudim because of these words.

20 Many of them said: He has a demon, and is mad, why do you hear Him?

21 Others said: These are not the sayings of one possessed with a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?

22 It was the feast of the dedication at Yerusalem.

23 It was winter, and Yahshua was walking in the temple in Solomon's porch.

24 The Yahudim came round about Him, and said to Him: How long do you hold us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.

25 Yahshua answered them: I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's Name, these bear witness of Me.

26 But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep.

27 My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow Me.

28 I give to them eternal life, they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.

29 My Father, who gave them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

30 I and the Father are One.

31 The Yahudim took up stones again to stone Him.

32 Yahshua answered them: Many good works I have shown you from the Father, for which of those works do you stone Me?

33 The Yahudim answered Him: For a good work we do not stone you, but for blasphemy [saying the name of: Yahwah]. And because that you, being a man, make yourself a god.

34 Yahshua answered them: Is it not written in your law; I said, you are gods? [Psalm 82:6]

35 If He called them gods, to whom the Word of Yahwah came (and the scripture cannot be broken),

36 you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world: You blaspheme? Because I said: Son of Yahwah I AM?

37 If I do not [do] the works of my Father, do not believe Me.

38 But if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.

39 They tried again to take Him, and He went forth out of their hand.

40 He went away again beyond the Yordan into the place where Yahchanan was immersing at the first, and He abode there.

41 Many came to Him, and they said: Yahchanan indeed did no sign, but all things whatsoever Yahchanan spoke of this man were true.

42 And many believed on Him there.

Chapter 11

1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Miriam and her sister Martha.

2 It was that Miriam who anointed the Master with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick [Yahchanan 12:3].

3 The sisters therefore sent to Him, saying: Master, behold, he who you love is sick.

4 When Yahshua heard it, He said: This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of Yahwah, that the Son of Yahwah may be glorified.

5 Now Yahshua loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6 When He heard that he was sick, He abode at that time two days in the place where He was.

7 Then after this He said to the disciples: Let us go into Yahudah again.

8 The disciples said to Him: Rabbi, the Yahudim were but now seeking to stone you, and you go there again?

9 Yahshua answered: Are there not twelve hours in the day? If a man walk in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.

11 These things He spoke. After this He said to them: Our friend Lazarus is fallen asleep. I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12 The disciples therefore said to Him: Master, if he is fallen asleep, he will recover.

13 Now Yahshua spoke of his death, but they thought He spoke of taking rest in sleep.

14 Then Yahshua said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead.

15 I am glad for your sakes I was not there, to the intent you may believe. Let us go to him.

16 Thomas, who is called Didymus, therefore said to his fellow disciples: Let us also go, that we may die with Him.

17 So when Yahshua came, He found that he was in the tomb four days already.

18 Bethany was near to Yerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.

19 Many of the Yahudim had come to Martha and Miriam, to console them concerning their brother.

20 When she heard Yahshua was coming, Martha went and met Him. But Miriam still sat in the house.

21 Martha therefore said to Yahshua: Master, if you were here, my brother would not have died.

22 Even now I know that whatsoever you ask of Yahwah, Yahwah will give you.

23 Yahshua said to her: Your brother will rise again.

24 Martha said to Him: I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Yahshua said to her: I am the resurrection, and the life. He who is believing in Me, though he die, he will yet live.

26 Whosoever lives and is believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?

27 She said to Him: Yea, Master. I believe you are the Messiah, the Son of Yahwah, even He who comes into the world.

28 When she had said this, she went away, and secretly called Miriam her sister, saying: The Teacher is here, and calls you.

29 When she heard it, she arose quickly, and went to Him.

30 Yahshua was not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met Him.

31 The Yahudim then who were with her in the house and were consoling her, when they saw Miriam rise up quickly and go out, followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there.

32 When she came where Yahshua was, and saw Him, Miriam fell down at His feet, saying to Him: Master, if you were here, my brother would not have died.

33 Yahshua saw her weeping, and the Yahudim also weeping who came with her. He groaned in the spirit, was troubled,

34 and said: Where did you lay him? They said to Him: Master, come and see.

35 Yahshua wept.

36 The Yahudim therefore said: Behold how He loved him!

37 But some of them said: Could not this man, who opened the eyes of him who was blind, have caused that this man also should not die?

38 Yahshua came to the tomb, groaning in Himself again. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it.

39 Yahshua said: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him: Master, by this time the body decays. He has been dead four days.

40 Yahshua said to her: Did I not say to you, that if you believe, you would see the glory of Yahwah?

41 So they took away the stone. Yahshua lifted up His eyes, and said: Yahwah, I thank you that you heard Me.

42 I know you hear me always. But because of the multitude that stands around I said it, that they may believe you did send Me.

43 When He had thus spoken, He cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth!

44 He who was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Yahshua said to them: Loose him, and let him go.

45 Many of the Yahudim believed on Him, who came to Miriam and saw what He did.

46 But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things Yahshua did.

47 The chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said: What do we [do]? For this man does many signs.

48 If we let Him alone, all men will believe on Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.

49 But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them: You do not know anything at all,

50 nor do you take account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, that the whole nation not perish.

51 Now this he said not of himself, but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Yahshua should die for the nation.

52 Not for the nation only, but that He might also gather together into one the children of Yahwah who are scattered abroad.

53 So from that day forth they took counsel that they might put Him to death.

54 Yahshua therefore walked openly among the Yahudim no more, but departed from them into the country near to the wilderness, into a city called: Ephrayim. There He tarried with the disciples.

55 Now the passover of the Yahudim was at hand, and many went up to Yerusalem out of the country before the passover, to purify themselves.

56 They looked for Yahshua, and spoke one with another, as they stood in the temple: What do you think? That He will not come to the feast?

57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees gave commandment, that, if any man knew where He was, he should show it, that they might take Him.

Chapter 12

1 Six days before the passover Yahshua came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Yahshua raised from the dead.

2 So they made Him a supper there. Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at meat with Him.

3 Miriam took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious. She anointed the feet of Yahshua, and wiped His feet with her hair, and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.

4 Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who would betray Him, said:

5 Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred shillings, and given to the poor?

6 This he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the [communal money]bag took away what was put in it.

7 Yahshua therefore said: Allow her to keep it against the day of my burying.

8 The poor you always have with you, but Me you do not always have.

9 The common people of the Yahudim learned He was there. They came, not for Yahshua's sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom He had raised from the dead.

10 The chief priests took counsel that they might put Lazarus to death,

11 because by reason of him many of the Yahudim went and believed in Yahshua.

12 The next day a great multitude who had come to the feast, when they heard Yahshua was coming to Yerusalem,

13 took the branches of the palm trees, went forth to meet Him, and cried out: Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Yahwah [Psalms 118:26, Matthew 23:39], even the King of Yisrayah.

14 Yahshua found a young ass and sat on it, as it is written:

15 Do not fear, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes, sitting on an ass's colt [Zechariah 9:9].

16 His disciples did not understand these things at the first. But when Yahshua was glorified, then they remembered these things were written of Him, and that they did these things to Him.

17 The multitude who was with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, bore witness.

18 For this reason also the whole nation went and met Him, for they heard He did this sign.

19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: Behold how you prevail nothing. Lo, the world is gone after Him.

20 Now there were certain Greeks among those who went up to worship at the feast.

21 These came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying: Sir, we would see Yahshua.

22 Philip comes and tells Andrew. Andrew comes, with Philip, and they tell Yahshua.

23 Yahshua answered them, saying: The hour is come that the Son of man should be glorified.

24 Verily, verily, I say to you, Except a grain of wheat fall into the earth and die, it abides by itself alone. But if it die, it bears much fruit.

25 He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.

26 If any man serves Me, let him follow Me. Where I am, there my servant will also be. If any man serves Me, the Father will honor him.

27 Now my soul is troubled, and what will I say? Father, save me from this hour? But for this reason I came to this hour.

28 Father, glorify your Name. There came a voice out of heaven, [YHWH] saying: I did both glorify it, and will glorify it again.

29 The multitude who stood by, and heard it, said it thundered. Others said: A god spoke to Him.

30 Yahshua answered, and said: This voice did not come for my sake, but for your sakes.

31 Now is the judgment of this world. Now the prince of this world will be cast out.

32 If I am lifted up from the earth [on a stake], I will draw all men to myself.

33 This He said, signifying by what manner of death He should die.

34 The multitude answered Him: We heard out of the Law that the Messiah abides forever. How do you say: The Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man?

35 Yahshua said to them: Yet a little while is the Light among you. Walk while you have the Light, that darkness not overtake you. He who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.

36 While you have the Light, believe on the Light, that you may become sons of Light. These things Yahshua spoke, then He departed, and hid Himself from them.

37 But though He [Yahshua] did so many signs before them, yet they did not believe on Him so the word of Yeshayah the prophet might be fulfilled,

38 which he spoke: Yahwah, who believes our report? To whom is the Arm of Yahwah revealed? [Isaiah 53:1]

39 For this reason they could not believe, so Yeshayah said again:

40 He [Yahwah] blinded their eyes, and He hardened their heart, unless they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, should turn, and I should heal them. [Isaiah 6:10]

41 These things Yeshayah said, because he saw His Glory [Isaiah 6:1-2]; and he spoke of Him [Yahwah].

42 Even of the rulers many believed on Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess it, unless they should be put out of the synagogue.

43 For they loved the glory that is of men more than the glory that is of Yahwah.

44 Yahshua cried, and said: He who believes on Me, does not believe on Me, but on Him who sent Me.

45 He who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.

46 I am come a Light into the world, that whosoever is believing in Me may not abide in the darkness.

47 If any man hear my sayings, and not keep them, I do not judge him. I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive my sayings, has one who judges him. The word that I spoke, the same will judge him in the last day.

49 For I spoke not from myself. The Father who sent Me, He gave Me a commandment, what I should say and what I should speak.

50 I know His commandment is life eternal. The things therefore which I speak, even as the Father said to Me, so I speak.

Chapter 13

1 Now before the preparation of the passover, Yahshua knew His hour was come that he should depart out of this world to His Father. Having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.

2 And during supper (the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him),

3 Yahshua (knowing the Father gave all the things into His hands, that He came forth from Yahwah, and goes to Yahwah),

4 rose from supper, and layed aside His garments. He took a towel, and girded Himself.

5 Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.

6 So He comes to Simon Kepha. He said to Him: Master, do you wash my feet?

7 Yahshua answered, and said to him: What I do you do not know now, but you will understand later.

8 Kepha said to Him: You will never wash my feet. Yahshua answered him: If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.

9 Simon Kepha said to Him: Master, not my feet only, but also my hands, and my head.

10 Yahshua said to him: He who is bathed does not need to wash except his feet, and is clean every bit. You are clean, but not all.

11 For He knew him who would betray Him, therefore He said: You are not all clean.

12 So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them: Do you know what I did to you?

13 You call Me Teacher, and, Master. You say well, for so I AM.

14 If I, the Master and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.

15 For I gave you an example, that you also should do as I did to you.

16 Verily, verily, I say to you, A servant is not greater than his master. Nor [is] one who is sent greater than he who sent him.

17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

18 I speak not of you all, I know who I chose, but that the scripture may be fulfilled: He who eats my bread lifts up his heel against Me [Psalm 41:9].

19 Now I tell you before it comes to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you may believe that I AM.

20 Verily, verily, I say to you, He who receives whomsoever I send receives Me. He who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

21 When Yahshua had so said, He was troubled in the spirit, and testified: Verily, verily, I say to you, One of you will betray Me.

22 The disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom He spoke.

23 There was at the table reclining in Yahshua's bosom one of His disciples, whom Yahshua loved.

24 Simon Kepha therefore beckoned to him, and said to him: Tell us who it is of whom He speaks.

25 Leaning back on Yahshua's breast as he was, he said to Him: Master, who is it?

26 Yahshua answered: He it is for whom I dip the soup, and give it him. So he dipped the soup, and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

27 After the soup, then Satan entered into him. Yahshua therefore said to him: What you do, do quickly.

28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent He spoke this to him.

29 For some thought, because Judas had the bag, that Yahshua said to him: Buy what things we have need of for the feast. Or: That he should give something to the poor.

30 Having received the soup he went out straightaway, and it was night.

31 When he was gone out, Yahshua said: Now is the Son of man glorified, and Yahwah is glorified in Him.

32 Yahwah will glorify Him in Himself, and He will glorify Him.

33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek Me. As I said to the Yahudim: Where I go, you cannot come. So now I say to you,

34 A new commandment I give to you: That you love one another. Even as I love you, you also love one another.

35 By this all men will know you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.

36 Simon Kepha said to him: Master, where do you go? Yahshua answered: Where I go, you cannot follow now, but you will follow afterwards.

37 Kepha said to Him: Master, why can I not follow you even now? I will lay down my life for you.

38 Yahshua answered: Will you lay down your life for me? Verily, verily, I say to you, The cock will not crow till you deny me three times.

Chapter 14

1 Do not let your heart be troubled. Believe in Yahwah, believe in Me also.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would tell you, for I go to prepare a place for you.

3 I go and prepare a place for you. I will come again, and receive you to myself, that where I am, there you may also be.

4 Where I go, you know The Way.

5 Thomas said to him: Master, we do not know where you go, how do we know the way?

6 Yahshua said to him: I am The Way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.

7 If you know Me, you would know my Father also. So now you know Him, and see Him.

8 Philip said to Him: Master, show us the Father, and it suffices us.

9 Yahshua said to him: Have I been with you so long a time, and you do not know Me, Philip? He who sees Me sees the Father. Why do you say: Show us the Father?

10 Do you not believe I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words I say to you I do not speak from myself, the Father abiding in Me does His works.

11 Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the very works' sake.

12 Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is believing in Me, the works that I do he will do also. And greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father.

13 Whatsoever you ask in my Name, that I will do, that the Father is glorified in the Son.

14 If you ask anything in my Name, that I will do.

15 If you love Me, you will keep my commandments.

16 I will pray to the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, who may be with you forever.

17 Even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive. It does not behold Him, neither knows Him. You know Him, for He abides with you, and is in you.

18 I will not leave you desolate, I come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world sees Me no more. But you see Me. Because I live, you will live also.

20 In that day you will know I am in my Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

21 He who has my commandments, and keeps them, is he who loves Me. He who loves Me is loved of my Father. I love him, and will manifest myself to him.

22 Yahudah [Judas] (not Iscariot) said to Him: Master, what is come to pass that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?

23 Yahshua answered, and said to him: If a man loves Me, he keeps my word. My Father loves him, and we will come to Him, and make our abode with Him.

24 He who does not love me does not keep my words, and the word you hear is not mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

25 These things I say to you, while yet abiding with you.

26 But the Comforter (even Yahwah's Spirit, whom the Father will send in my Name), He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, I give to you. Let your heart not be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

28 You heard how I said to you: I go away, and I come to you. If you love me, you would rejoice, because I go to the Father. For the Father is greater than I.

29 Now I tell you before it comes to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you may believe.

30 I will not speak much more with you, for the prince of the world comes, and he has nothing in Me.

31 But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go away.

Chapter 15

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

2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away. Every branch that bears fruit, He cleanses it, that it may bear more fruit.

3 Already you are clean because of the Word which I spoke to you.

4 Abide in Me, and I in you. The branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine. So neither can you, except you abide in Me.

5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

6 If a man does not abide in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered. They gather them, cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If you abide in Me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever you will, and it will be done to you.

8 By this my Father is glorified: that you bear much fruit. So you will be my disciples.

9 Even as the Father loves Me, I also love you. Abide in my love.

10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love; even as I keep my Father's commandments, and abide in His love.

11 These things I say to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

12 This is my commandment: Love one another, even as I love you.

13 Greater love has no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14 You are my friends, if you do the things I command you.

15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master does. I call you friends, for I made known to you all things that I heard from my Father.

16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should abide. Whatsoever you ask of the Father in my Name, He may give to you.

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

18 If the world hates you, you know it hated me before it hated you.

19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

20 Remember the word that I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also.

21 All these things they will do to you for my Name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.

22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin. But now they have no excuse for their sin.

23 He who hates me hates my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which no other did, they would not have sin. But now they have seen and hated both Me and my Father.

25 This comes to pass, that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their law: They hated Him without a reason [Psalm 35:19; Psalm 69:4; Psalm 109:3].

26 When the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father (even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father), He will bear witness of Me.

27 You also bear witness, because you were with Me from the beginning.

Chapter 16

1 These things I spoke to you, that you should not be caused to stumble.

2 They will put you out of the synagogues. Yea, the hour comes, that whosoever kills you will think he offers service to Yahwah.

3 These things they will do, because they do not know the Father, nor Me.

4 These things I spoke to you, that when their hour is come, you may remember them, how I told you. These things I did not say to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

5 But now I go to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me: Where do you go?

6 Because I said these things to you, sorrow fills your heart.

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is expedient for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you.

8 When He is come, He will convict the world in respect of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

9 Of sin, because they do not believe Me.

10 Of righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you see Me no more.

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.

13 However when He (the Spirit of truth) is come, He will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak from Himself, what things soever He hears, these He will speak. He will declare to you the things that are to come.

14 He will glorify Me. He will take of mine, and will declare it to you.

15 All things whatsoever the Father has are mine. Therefore I said that He takes of mine, and will declare it to you.

16 A little while, and you see Me no more. Then again a little while, and you will see Me.

17 Some of His disciples therefore said one to another: What is this that He says to us; A little while, and you see Me not, and again a little while, and you will see Me? And: Because I go to the Father?

18 They said therefore: What is this that He says; A little while? We do not know what He says.

19 Yahshua perceived that they were desirous to ask Him, and He said to them: Do you inquire among yourselves concerning this, that I said; A little while, and you see Me not, and again a little while, and you will see Me?

20 Verily, verily, I say to you, You will weep and lament. The world will rejoice, you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

21 A woman has sorrow when she is in travail, because her hour is come. But when she is delivered of the child, she remembers the anguish no more, for the joy that a man is born into the world.

22 You have sorrow now. But I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take away from you.

23 In that day you will ask Me no question. Verily, verily, I say to you, If you ask anything of the Father, He will give it to you in my Name.

24 So far you have asked nothing in my Name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.

25 These things I spoke to you in dark sayings. The hour comes, when I will not speak to you in dark sayings, but will tell you plainly of the Father.

26 In that day you will ask in my Name, and I will not say to you: I will pray to the Father for you.

27 The Father Himself loves you, because you love Me, and believe that I came forth from the Father.

28 I came out from the Father, and am come into the world. I leave the world, and go to the Father.

29 His disciples say: Lo, now you speak plainly, and speak no dark saying.

30 Now we know you know all things, and do not need that any man should ask you. By this we believe that you came forth from Yahwah.

31 Yahshua answered them: Do you believe now?

32 Behold, the hour comes, yea, is come, that you will be scattered, every man to his own, and will leave Me alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.

33 These things I spoke to you, that you may have peace in Me. In the world you have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Chapter 17

1 These things Yahshua spoke, and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said: Father, the hour is come. Glorify your Son, that the son may glorify you.

2 Even as you gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom you gave Him, He should give eternal life.

3 This is life eternal, that they should know you the only true Father, and Him whom you did send, even Yahshua the Messiah.

4 I glorified you on the earth, having accomplished the work you gave Me to do.

5 Father, glorify Me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was.

6 I manifested your Name to the men whom you gave Me out of the world. Your's they were, you gave them to Me, and they have kept your word.

7 Now they know that all things whatsoever you gave Me are from you,

8 for the words which you gave Me I gave to them. They received them, and know of a truth that I came forth from you, and they believe that you did send Me.

9 I pray for them. I pray not for the world, but for those whom you gave Me, for they are yours.

10 All things that are mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.

11 I am no more in the world, these are in the world, and I come to you. Sacred Father, keep them in your Name which you gave Me, that they may be one, even as we are.

12 While I was with them, I kept them in your Name [Yahwah] which you gave Me. I guarded them, and not one of them perished, except the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13 But now I come to you. These things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves.

14 I gave them your Word. The world hates them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

15 I pray not that you should take them from the world, but that you should keep them from the evil one.

16 They are not of the world even as I am not of the world.

17 Sanctify them in the truth, your Word is truth.

18 As you sent Me into the world, even so I send them into the world.

19 I sanctify myself for their sakes, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.

20 Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who are believing in Me through their word,

21 that they may all be one. Even as you, Father, are in Me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you did send Me.

22 The glory which you gave Me I gave to them, that they may be one, even as we are one.

23 I in them, and you in Me, that they may be perfected into one. That so the world may know you did send Me, and love them, even as you love Me.

24 Father, I desire that they also whom you gave Me be with Me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which you gave Me. For you loved Me before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father, the world did not know you, but I knew you. These know that you did send me.

26 I made your Name known to them, and will make it known. The love with which you love Me may be in them, and I in them [Psalm 22:22].

Chapter 18

1 After Yahshua spoke these words, He went forth with His disciples over the brook Kidron, where a garden was, into which He entered, Himself and His disciples.

2 Now Judas also, who betrays Him, knew the place, for Yahshua often-times resorted there with His disciples.

3 Judas then, having received the band of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.

4 Knowing all the things that were coming upon Him, Yahshua went forth, and said to them: Whom do you seek?

5 They answered Him: Yahshua of Nazareth. Yahshua said to them: I AM. Judas, who betrayed Him, was standing with them.

6 When He said to them: I AM, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

7 Again He asked them: Whom do you seek? They said: Yahshua of Nazareth.

8 Yahshua answered: I told you that I AM. If you seek Me, let these go their way

9 (that the word might be fulfilled which He spoke: I lost not one of those whom you gave Me).

10 Having a sword, Simon Kepha drew it, struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchus.

11 Yahshua therefore said to Kepha: Put up the sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which the Father gives Me?

12 So the band and the chief captain, and the officers of the Yahudim, seized Yahshua, bound Him,

13 and led Him to Annas first. He was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.

14 Now Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Yahudim, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

15 Simon Kepha followed Yahshua, and so did another disciple [Miriam Magdalene]. Now that [other] disciple was known to the high priest, and entered in with Yahshua into the court of the high priest.

16 Kepha was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought in Kepha.

17 The maid therefore who kept the door said to Kepha: Are you also one of this man's disciples? He said: I am not.

18 Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold, and they were warming themselves. Kepha also was with them, standing and warming himself.

19 The high priest therefore asked Yahshua of His disciples, and of His teaching.

20 Yahshua answered him: I spoke openly to the world. I ever taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where all the Yahudim come together. I spoke nothing in secret.

21 Why do you ask Me? Ask those who heard Me what I spoke to them. Behold, these know the things I said.

22 When He said this, one of the officers standing by struck Yahshua with his hand, saying: You answer the high priest so?

23 Yahshua answered him: If I spoke evil, bear witness of the evil. But if well, why do you hit Me?

24 Annas therefore sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

25 Now Simon Kepha was standing and warming himself. They said to him: Are you also one of His disciples? He denied, and said: I am not.

26 One of the servants of the high priest, being a kinsman of him whose ear Kepha cut off, said: Did I not see you in the garden with Him?

27 Kepha therefore denied again, and straightaway the cock crowed.

28 They lead Yahshua therefore from Caiaphas into the Praetorium. It was early, and they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the passover.

29 Pilate therefore went out to them, and said: What accusation do you bring against this man?

30 They answered, and said to him: If this man were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you.

31 Pilate therefore said to them: Take Him yourselves, and judge Him according to your law. The Yahudim said to him: It is not lawful for us to put any man to death

32 (that the word of Yahshua might be fulfilled, which He spoke, signifying by what manner of death He should die) [Yahchanan 12:32-33].

33 Pilate therefore entered again into the Praetorium, called Yahshua, and said to Him: Are you the King of the Yahudim?

34 Yahshua answered: Do you say this of yourself, or did others tell it to you concerning Me?

35 Pilate answered: Am I a Yahudi? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered you to me. What did you do?

36 Yahshua answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Yahudim. But now my kingdom is not from here.

37 Pilate therefore said to him: Are you a king then? Yahshua answered: You say that I am a king. To this end I was born, and to this end I am come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.

38 Pilate said to Him: What is truth? When he had said this, he went out again to the Yahudim, and said to them: I find no crime in Him.

39 But you have a custom, that I should release to you one at the passover. Will you therefore that I release to you the King of the Yahudim?

40 They cried out again, saying: Not this man, but Barabbas (now Barabbas was a robber).

Chapter 19

1 Then Pilate took Yahshua, and scourged Him.

2 The soldiers pleated a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and arrayed Him in a purple garment.

3 They came to Him, and said: Hail, King of the Yahudim! They struck Him with their hands.

4 Pilate went out again, and said to them: Behold, I bring Him out to you, that you may know I find no crime in Him.

5 Yahshua came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. Pilate said to them: Behold, the man!

6 When the chief priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out, saying: Impale Him, impale Him! Pilate said to them: Take Him yourselves, and impale Him. I find no crime in Him.

7 The Yahudim answered him: We have a law, and by that law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God.

8 When Pilate heard this saying, he was the more afraid.

9 He entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Yahshua: Who are you? But Yahshua gave him no answer.

10 Pilate therefore said to Him: Do you not speak to me? Do you know I have power to release you, and have power to impale you?

11 Yahshua answered him: You would have no power against Me, except it were given you from above. Therefore He who delivered Me to you has greater sin.

12 Upon this Pilate tried to release Him. But the Yahudim cried out, saying: If you release this man, you are not Caesar's friend. Everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.

13 When Pilate heard these words, he brought Yahshua out, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called: The Pavement (in Hebrew: Gabbatha).

14 Now it was the Preparation of the Passover, it was about the sixth hour [noon]. He said to the Yahudim: Behold, your King!

15 They cried out: Away with Him, away with Him, impale Him! Pilate said to them: Shall I impale your King? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.

16 Then he delivered Him to them to be impaled.

17 They took Yahshua, and He went out, bearing the stake for Himself, to the place called: The Place Of A Skull (which is called in Hebrew: Golgotha).

18 They impaled Him. With Him two others, on either side one, and Yahshua in the middle [Isaiah 53:9, 12].

19 Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the stake. There was written: YAHSHUA OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 Many of the Yahudim read this title, for the place where Yahshua was impaled was near to the city, and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.

21 The chief priests of the Yahudim said to Pilate: Do not write: The King of the Yahudim. But: He said I am King of the Yahudim.

22 Pilate answered: What I wrote I wrote.

23 When they had impaled Yahshua, the soldiers took His garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore one to another: Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it will be (that the scripture might be fulfilled, which said: They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture they did cast lots). [Psalm 22:18]

25 These things the soldiers did. There were standing by the stake of Yahshua His mother, His mother's sister, Miriam the wife of Cleopas, and Miriam Magdalene.

26 When Yahshua saw His mother, and the disciple standing by whom He loved [Miriam Magdalene], He said to his mother: Woman, behold your son!

27 Then He said to the disciple: Behold, your mother! And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

28 After this, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture might be accomplished, Yahshua said: I thirst.

29 There was set there a vessel full of vinegar, so they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to His mouth [Psalm 69:21].

30 When Yahshua received the vinegar, He said: It is finished. He bowed his head, and gave up His spirit.

31 Because it was the Preparation, and the bodies could not remain on the stake upon the sabbath (for the day of that sabbath was a High Day), the Yahudim asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken [so they will die rapidly], so that they might be taken away.

32 The soldiers therefore came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was impaled with Him.

33 When they came to Yahshua, and saw that He was dead already, they did not break His legs [Psalm 34:20].

34 However one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and straightaway there came out blood and water [Zechariah 12:10].

35 He who saw bears witness, and his witness is true. He knows that he says true, that you also may believe.

36 These things came to pass, that the scripture might be fulfilled: A bone of Him will not be broken [Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12; Psalm 34:20].

37 Again another scripture said: They will look on Him whom they pierced [Psalm 22:16-17, Zechariah 13:6].

38 After these things Yahusef of Arimathaea (a disciple of Yahshua, but secretly for fear of the Yahudim), asked of Pilate that he might take away the body of Yahshua, and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took away His body.

39 There came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to Him by night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.

40 They took the body of Yahshua, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Yahudim is to bury.

41 Now in the place where He was impaled there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no man had ever been placed.

42 They laid Yahshua there because of the Yahudim Preparation (for the tomb was near at hand).

Chapter 20

1 Now on the first day of the week comes Miriam Magdalene early, while it was yet dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.

2 She ran therefore, and came to Simon Kepha, and to the other disciple whom Yahshua loved, and said to them: They took away the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they laid Him.

3 Kepha therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the tomb.

4 They ran both together, but the other disciple outran Kepha, and came to the tomb first.

5 Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he did not enter in.

6 Simon Kepha also came, following him, and entered into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying.

7 The napkin that was upon His head was not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself.

8 Then the other disciple entered also, who came to the tomb first. He saw, and believed.

9 For as yet they did not know the scripture, that He must rise from the dead [Psalm 16:10-11].

10 So the disciples went away again to their own homes.

11 But Miriam was standing outside at the tomb weeping. As she wept, she stooped, and looked into the tomb.

12 She saw two malaks in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Yahshua had laid.

13 They said to her: Woman, why do you weep? She said to them: Because they took away my Master, and I do not know where they laid Him.

14 When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Yahshua standing, and did not know that it was Yahshua.

15 Yahshua said to her: Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek? Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him: Sir, if you bore Him from here, tell me where you laid Him, and I will take Him away.

16 Yahshua said to her: Miriam. She turned herself, and said to him in Hebrew: Rabboni (which is to say: Teacher).

17 Yahshua said to her: Do not touch Me, for I am not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and your Father, Yahwah.

18 Miriam Magdalene came, and told the disciples: I saw the Master! and that He had said these things to her.

19 When it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week (the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Yahudim), Yahshua came, stood in the middle, and said to them: Peace be to you.

20 When He said this, He showed to them His hands and His side. The disciples were glad, when they saw the Master!

21 Yahshua said to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father sent Me, even so I send you.

22 When He said this, He breathed on them, and said to them: Receive the Set-Apart Spirit.

23 Whoever's sins you forgive, they are forgiven to them. Whoever's sins you retain, they are retained.

24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus [Twin], was not with them when Yahshua came.

25 The other disciples therefore said to him: We saw the Master! But he said to them: Except I see the print of the nails in His hands, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.

26 After eight days again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Yahshua came, the doors being shut, stood in the middle, and said: Peace be to you.

27 Then He said to Thomas: Reach your finger here, and see my hands. Reach your hand here, and put it into my side. Do not be faithless, but believing [Psalm 22:16].

28 Thomas answered, and said to Him: My King, my Leader.

29 Yahshua said to him: Because you see Me, you believe. Blessed are those who do not see, and yet believe.

30 Many other signs Yahshua did in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book.

31 But these are written, that you may believe Yahshua is the Messiah, the Son of Yahwah, and that believing you may have life in His Name.

Chapter 21

1 After these things Yahshua manifested Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way.

2 There was together Simon Kepha, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanyah of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples.

3 Simon Kepha said to them: I'm going fishing. They said to him: We also come with you. They went forth, entered into the boat, and that night they took nothing.

4 When day was now breaking, Yahshua stood on the beach, yet the disciples did not know it was Yahshua.

5 Yahshua said to them: Children, have you anything to eat? They answered Him: No.

6 He said to them: Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

7 That disciple therefore whom Yahshua loved said to Kepha: It is the Master. So when Simon Kepha heard it was the Master, he wrapped his coat about him (for he was naked), and cast himself into the sea.

8 The other disciples came in the little boat (they were not far from the land, about two hundred cubits off), dragging the net full of fishes.

9 So when they got out upon the land, they see a fire of coals there, with fish laid on them, and bread.

10 Yahshua said to them: Bring of the fish which you have now taken.

11 Simon Kepha went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three. And for all there were so many, the net was not torn.

12 Yahshua said to them: Come, break your fast. None of the disciples dared inquire of Him: Who are you? knowing it was the Master.

13 Yahshua came, took the bread, gave them, and the fish likewise.

14 This is now the third time that Yahshua was manifested to the disciples, after He was risen from the dead.

15 So when they had broken their fast, Yahshua said to Simon Kepha: Simon, son of Yahchanan, do you love Me more than these? He said to him: Yea, Master, you know I love you. He said to him: Feed my lambs.

16 He said to him again a second time: Simon, son of Yahchanan, do you love Me? He said to Him: Yea, Master, you know I love you. He said to him: Tend my sheep.

17 He said to him the third time: Simon, son of Yahchanan, do you love Me? Kepha was grieved because He said to him the third time: Do you love Me? He said to Him: Master, you know all things, you know I love you. Yahshua said to him: Feed my sheep.

18 Verily, verily, I say to you, When you were young, you clothed yourself, and walked where you would. But when you are old, you will stretch forth your hands, and another will clothe you, and carry you where you would not.

19 Now this He spoke, signifying by what manner of death He would glorify Yahwah. When He had spoken this, He said to him: Follow Me.

20 Turning about, Kepha saw the disciple whom Yahshua loved following (who leaned back on his breast at the supper, and said: Master, who is he that betrays you?).

21 Seeing him, Kepha said to Yahshua: Master, and what will this one do?

22 Yahshua said to him: If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? Follow Me.

23 This saying therefore went forth among the brothers, that that disciple should not die. Yet Yahshua did not say to him that he would not die. But: If I will that He tarry till I come, what is that to you?

24 This is the disciple who bears witness of these things, and wrote these things. We know his witness is true.

25 There are also many other things Yahshua did, which if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.
