18:1Jesus, having said these things, went out with his disciples beyond the torrent Cedron, where was a garden, into which he entered, he and his disciples.
18:2And Judas also, who delivered him up, knew the place, because Jesus was often there, in company with his disciples.
18:3Judas therefore, having got the band, and officers of the chief priests and Pharisees, comes there with lanterns and torches and weapons.
18:4Jesus therefore, knowing all things that were coming upon him, went forth and said to them, Whom seek ye?
18:5They answered him, Jesus the Nazaraean. Jesus says to them, I am he. And Judas also, who delivered him up, stood with them.
18:6When therefore he said to them, I am he, they went away backward and fell to the ground.
18:7He demanded of them therefore again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus the Nazaraean.
18:8Jesus answered, I told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go away;
18:9that the word might be fulfilled which he spoke, As to those whom thou hast given me, I have not lost one of them.
18:10Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it, and smote the bondman of the high priest and cut off his right ear; and the bondman's name was Malchus.
18:11Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?
18:12The band therefore, and the chiliarch, and the officers of the Jews, took Jesus and bound him:
18:13and they led him away to Annas first; for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.
18:14But it was Caiaphas who counselled the Jews that it was better that one man should perish for the people.
18:15Now Simon Peter followed Jesus, and the other disciple. But that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest;
18:16but Peter stood at the door without. The other disciple therefore, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the porteress and brought in Peter.
18:17The maid therefore, who was porteress, says to Peter, Art thou also of the disciples of this man? He says, I am not.
18:18But the bondmen and officers, having made a fire of coals (for it was cold), stood and warmed themselves; and Peter was standing with them and warming himself.
18:19The high priest therefore demanded of Jesus concerning his disciples and concerning his doctrine.
18:20Jesus answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I taught always in the synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jews come together, and in secret I have spoken nothing.
18:21Why demandest thou of me? Demand of those who have heard, what I have spoken to them; behold, they know what I have said.
18:22But as he said these things, one of the officers who stood by gave a blow on the face to Jesus, saying, Answerest thou the high priest thus?
18:23Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why smitest thou me?
18:24Annas then had sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
18:25But Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said therefore to him, Art thou also of his disciples? He denied, and said, I am not.
18:26One of the bondmen of the high priest, who was kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, says, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
18:27Peter denied therefore again, and immediately the cock crew.
18:28They lead therefore Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium; and it was early morn. And *they* entered not into the praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but eat the passover.
18:29Pilate therefore went out to them and said, What accusation do ye bring against this man?
18:30They answered and said to him, If this man were not an evildoer, we should not have delivered him up to thee.
18:31Pilate therefore said to them, Take him, ye, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is not permitted to us to put any one to death;
18:32that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled which he spoke, signifying what death he should die.
18:33Pilate therefore entered again into the praetorium and called Jesus, and said to him, Thou art the king of the Jews?
18:34Jesus answered him, Dost thou say this of thyself, or have others said it to thee concerning me?
18:35Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thy nation and the chief priests have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done?
18:36Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my servants had fought that I might not be delivered up to the Jews; but now my kingdom is not from hence.
18:37Pilate therefore said to him, Thou art then a king? Jesus answered, Thou sayest it, that I am a king. I have been born for this, and for this I have come into the world, that I might bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice.
18:38Pilate says to him, What is truth? And having said this he went out again to the Jews, and says to them, I find no fault whatever in him.
18:39But ye have a custom that I release some one to you at the passover; will ye therefore that I release unto you the king of the Jews?
18:40They cried therefore again all, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
19:1Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged him.
19:2And the soldiers having plaited a crown of thorns put it on his head, and put a purple robe on him,
19:3and came to him and said, Hail, king of the Jews! and gave him blows on the face.
19:4And Pilate went out again and says to them, Lo, I bring him out to you, that ye may know that I find in him no fault whatever.
19:5(Jesus therefore went forth without, wearing the crown of thorn, and the purple robe.) And he says to them, Behold the man!
19:6When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him they cried out saying, Crucify, crucify him. Pilate says to them, Take him ye and crucify him, for I find no fault in him.
19:7The Jews answered him, We have a law, and according to our law he ought to die, because he made himself Son of God.
19:8When Pilate therefore heard this word, he was the rather afraid,
19:9and went into the praetorium again and says to Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10Pilate therefore says to him, Speakest thou not to *me*? Dost thou not know that I have authority to release thee and have authority to crucify thee?
19:11Jesus answered, Thou hadst no authority whatever against me if it were not given to thee from above. On this account he that has delivered me up to thee has the greater sin.
19:12From this time Pilate sought to release him; but the Jews cried out saying, If thou releasest this man, thou art not a friend to Caesar. Every one making himself a king speaks against Caesar.
19:13Pilate therefore, having heard these words, led Jesus out and sat down upon the judgment-seat, at a place called Pavement, but in Hebrew Gabbatha;
19:14(now it was the preparation of the passover; it was about the sixth hour;) and he says to the Jews, Behold your king!
19:15But they cried out, Take him away, take him away, crucify him. Pilate says to them, Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
19:16Then therefore he delivered him up to them, that he might be crucified; and they took Jesus and led him away.
19:17And he went out, bearing his cross, to the place called place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha;
19:18where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on this side, and one on that, and Jesus in the middle.
19:19And Pilate wrote a title also and put it on the cross. But there was written: Jesus the Nazaraean, the King of the Jews.
19:20This title therefore many of the Jews read, for the place of the city where Jesus was crucified was near; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, Latin.
19:21The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, Do not write, The king of the Jews, but that *he* said, I am king of the Jews.
19:22Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.
19:23The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his clothes, and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and the body-coat; but the body-coat was seamless, woven through the whole from the top.
19:24They said therefore to one another, Let us not rend it, but let us cast lots for it, whose it shall be; that the scripture might be fulfilled which says, They parted my garments among themselves, and on my vesture they cast lots. The soldiers therefore did these things.
19:25And by the cross of Jesus stood his mother, and the sister of his mother, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala.
19:26Jesus therefore, seeing his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, says to his mother, Woman, behold thy son.
19:27Then he says unto the disciple, Behold thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
19:28After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, says, I thirst.
19:29There was a vessel therefore there full of vinegar, and having filled a sponge with vinegar, and putting hyssop round it, they put it up to his mouth.
19:30When therefore Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished; and having bowed his head, he delivered up his spirit.
19:31The Jews therefore, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for it was the preparation, (for the day of that sabbath was a great day,) demanded of Pilate that their legs might be broken and they taken away.
19:32The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first and of the other that had been crucified with him;
19:33but coming to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead they did not break his legs,
19:34but one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.
19:36For these things took place that the scripture might be fulfilled, Not a bone of him shall be broken.
19:37And again another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
19:38And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly through fear of the Jews, demanded of Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus: and Pilate allowed it. He came therefore and took away the body of Jesus.
19:39And Nicodemus also, who at first came to Jesus by night, came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds weight.
19:40They took therefore the body of Jesus and bound it up in linen with the spices, as it is the custom with the Jews to prepare for burial.
19:41But there was in the place where he had been crucified a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid.
19:42There therefore, on account of the preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was near, they laid Jesus.
20:1And on the first day of the week Mary of Magdala comes in early morn to the tomb, while it was still dark, and sees the stone taken away from the tomb.
20:2She runs therefore and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, to whom Jesus was attached, and says to them, They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.
20:3Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and came to the tomb.
20:4And the two ran together, and the other disciple ran forward faster than Peter, and came first to the tomb,
20:5and stooping down he sees the linen cloths lying; he did not however go in.
20:6Simon Peter therefore comes, following him, and entered into the tomb, and sees the linen cloths lying,
20:7and the handkerchief which was upon his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded up in a distinct place by itself.
20:8Then entered in therefore the other disciple also who came first to the tomb, and he saw and believed;
20:9for they had not yet known the scripture, that he must rise from among the dead.
20:10The disciples therefore went away again to their own home.
20:11But Mary stood at the tomb weeping without. As therefore she wept, she stooped down into the tomb,
20:12and beholds two angels sitting in white garments, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
20:13And they say to her, Woman, why dost thou weep? She says to them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
20:14Having said these things she turned backward and beholds Jesus standing there, and knew not that it was Jesus.
20:15Jesus says to her, Woman, why dost thou weep? Whom seekest thou? She, supposing that it was the gardener, says to him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
20:16Jesus says to her, Mary. She, turning round, says to him in Hebrew, Rabboni, which means Teacher.
20:17Jesus says to her, Touch me not, for I have not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God.
20:18Mary of Magdala comes bringing word to the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had said these things to her.
20:19When therefore it was evening on that day, which was the first day of the week, and the doors shut where the disciples were, through fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and says to them, Peace be to you.
20:20And having said this, he shewed to them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced therefore, having seen the Lord.
20:21Jesus said therefore again to them, Peace be to you: as the Father sent me forth, I also send you.
20:22And having said this, he breathed into them, and says to them, Receive the Holy Spirit:
20:23whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted to them; whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
20:24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
20:25The other disciples therefore said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and put my finger into the mark of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.
20:26And eight days after, his disciples were again within, and Thomas with them. Jesus comes, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst and said, Peace be to you.
20:27Then he says to Thomas, Bring thy finger here and see my hands; and bring thy hand and put it into my side; and be not unbelieving, but believing.
20:28Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God.
20:29Jesus says to him, Because thou hast seen me thou hast believed: blessed they who have not seen and have believed.
20:30Many other signs therefore also Jesus did before his disciples, which are not written in this book;
20:31but these are written that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life in his name.
21:1After these things Jesus manifested himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. And he manifested himself thus.
21:2There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael who was of Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples.
21:3Simon Peter says to them, I go to fish. They say to him, We also come with thee. They went forth, and went on board, and that night took nothing.
21:4And early morn already breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; the disciples however did not know that it was Jesus.
21:5Jesus therefore says to them, Children, have ye anything to eat? They answered him, No.
21:6And he said to them, Cast the net at the right side of the ship and ye will find. They cast therefore, and they could no longer draw it, from the multitude of fishes.
21:7That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved says to Peter, It is the Lord. Simon Peter therefore, having heard that it was the Lord, girded his overcoat on him (for he was naked), and cast himself into the sea;
21:8and the other disciples came in the small boat, for they were not far from the land, but somewhere about two hundred cubits, dragging the net of fishes.
21:9When therefore they went out on the land, they see a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread.
21:10Jesus says to them, Bring of the fishes which ye have now taken.
21:11Simon Peter went up and drew the net to the land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty-three; and though there were so many, the net was not rent.
21:12Jesus says to them, Come and dine. But none of the disciples dared inquire of him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
21:13Jesus comes and takes the bread and gives it to them, and the fish in like manner.
21:14This is already the third time that Jesus had been manifested to the disciples, being risen from among the dead.
21:15When therefore they had dined, Jesus says to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He says to him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I am attached to thee. He says to him, Feed my lambs.
21:16He says to him again a second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He says to him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I am attached to thee. He says to him, Shepherd my sheep.
21:17He says to him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, art thou attached to me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, Art thou attached to me? and said to him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I am attached to thee. Jesus says to him, Feed my sheep.
21:18Verily, verily, I say to thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst where thou desiredst; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and bring thee where thou dost not desire.
21:19But he said this signifying by what death he should glorify God. And having said this, he says to him, Follow me.
21:20Peter, turning round, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also leaned at supper on his breast, and said, Lord, who is it that delivers thee up?
21:21Peter, seeing him, says to Jesus, Lord, and what of this man?
21:22Jesus says to him, If I will that he abide until I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.
21:23This word therefore went out among the brethren, That disciple does not die. And Jesus did not say to him, He does not die; but, If I will that he abide until I come, what is that to thee?
21:24This is the disciple who bears witness concerning these things, and who has written these things; and we know that his witness is true.
21:25And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which if they were written one by one, I suppose that not even the world itself would contain the books written.
