18:1These things having said, Jesus went forth with his disciples beyond the brook of Kedron, where was a garden, into which he entered, himself and his disciples,
18:2and Judas also, who delivered him up, had known the place, because many times did Jesus assemble there with his disciples.
18:3Judas, therefore, having taken the band and officers out of the chief priests and Pharisees, doth come thither with torches and lamps, and weapons;
18:4Jesus, therefore, knowing all things that are coming upon him, having gone forth, said to them, `Whom do ye seek?'
18:5they answered him, `Jesus the Nazarene;' Jesus saith to them, `I am he;' -- and Judas who delivered him up was standing with them; --
18:6when, therefore, he said to them -- `I am he,' they went away backward, and fell to the ground.
18:7Again, therefore, he questioned them, `Whom do ye seek?' and they said, `Jesus the Nazarene;'
18:8Jesus answered, `I said to you that I am he; if, then, me ye seek, suffer these to go away;'
18:9that the word might be fulfilled that he said -- `Those whom Thou hast given to me, I did not lose of them even one.'
18:10Simon Peter, therefore, having a sword, drew it, and struck the chief priest's servant, and cut off his right ear -- and the name of the servant was Malchus --
18:11Jesus, therefore, said to Peter, `Put the sword into the sheath; the cup that the Father hath given to me, may I not drink it?'
18:12The band, therefore, and the captain, and the officers of the Jews, took hold on Jesus, and bound him,
18:13and they led him away to Annas first, for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was chief priest of that year,
18:14and Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Jews, that it is good for one man to perish for the people.
18:15And following Jesus was Simon Peter, and the other disciple, and that disciple was known to the chief priest, and he entered with Jesus to the hall of the chief priest,
18:16and Peter was standing at the door without, therefore went forth the other disciple who was known to the chief priest, and he spake to the female keeping the door, and he brought in Peter.
18:17Then said the maid keeping the door to Peter, `Art thou also of the disciples of this man?' he saith, `I am not;'
18:18and the servants and the officers were standing, having made a fire of coals, because it was cold, and they were warming themselves, and Peter was standing with them, and warming himself.
18:19The chief priests, therefore, questioned Jesus concerning his disciples, and concerning his teaching;
18:20Jesus answered him, `I spake freely to the world, I did always teach in a synagogue, and in the temple, where the Jews do always come together; and in secret I spake nothing;
18:21why me dost thou question? question those having heard what I spake to them; lo, these have known what I said.'
18:22And he having said these things, one of the officers standing by did give Jesus a slap, saying, `Thus dost thou answer the chief priest?'
18:23Jesus answered him, `If I spake ill, testify concerning the ill; and if well, why me dost thou smite?'
18:24Annas then sent him bound to Caiaphas the chief priest.
18:25And Simon Peter was standing and warming himself, they said then to him, `Art thou also of his disciples?' he denied, and said, `I am not.'
18:26One of the servants of the chief priest, being kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, saith, `Did not I see thee in the garden with him?'
18:27again, therefore, Peter denied, and immediately a cock crew.
18:28They led, therefore, Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium, and it was early, and they themselves did not enter into the praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the passover;
18:29Pilate, therefore, went forth unto them, and said, `What accusation do ye bring against this man?'
18:30they answered and said to him, `If he were not an evil doer, we had not delivered him to thee.'
18:31Pilate, therefore, said to them, `Take ye him -- ye -- and according to your law judge him;' the Jews, therefore, said to him, `It is not lawful to us to put any one to death;'
18:32that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled which he said, signifying by what death he was about to die.
18:33Pilate, therefore, entered into the praetorium again, and called Jesus, and said to him, `Thou art the King of the Jews?'
18:34Jesus answered him, `From thyself dost thou say this? or did others say it to thee about me?'
18:35Pilate answered, `Am I a Jew? thy nation, and the chief priests did deliver thee up to me; what didst thou?'
18:36Jesus answered, `My kingdom is not of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my officers had struggled that I might not be delivered up to Jews; but now my kingdom is not from hence.'
18:37Pilate, therefore, said to him, `Art thou then a king?' Jesus answered, `Thou dost say it; because a king I am, I for this have been born, and for this I have come to the world, that I may testify to the truth; every one who is of the truth, doth hear my voice.'
18:38Pilate saith to him, `What is truth?' and this having said, again he went forth unto the Jews, and saith to them, `I do find no fault in him;
18:39and ye have a custom that I shall release to you one in the passover; will ye, therefore, that I shall release to you the king of the Jews?'
18:40therefore they all cried out again, saying, `Not this one -- but Barabbas;' and Barabbas was a robber.
19:1Then, therefore, did Pilate take Jesus and scourge him,
19:2and the soldiers having plaited a crown of thorns, did place it on his head, and a purple garment they put around him,
19:3and said, `Hail! the king of the Jews;' and they were giving him slaps.
19:4Pilate, therefore, again went forth without, and saith to them, `Lo, I do bring him to you without, that ye may know that in him I find no fault;'
19:5Jesus, therefore, came forth without, bearing the thorny crown and the purple garment; and he saith to them, `Lo, the man!'
19:6When, therefore, the chief priests and the officers did see him, they cried out, saying, `Crucify, crucify;' Pilate saith to them, `Take ye him -- ye, and crucify; 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, for he made himself Son of God.'
19:8When, therefore, Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid,
19:9and entered again to the praetorium, and saith to Jesus, `Whence art thou?' and Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10Pilate, therefore, saith to him, `To me dost thou not speak? hast thou not known that I have authority to crucify thee, and I have authority to release thee?'
19:11Jesus answered, `Thou wouldst have no authority against me, if it were not having been given thee from above; because of this, he who is delivering me up to thee hath greater sin.'
19:12From this time was Pilate seeking to release him, and the Jews were crying out, saying, `If this one thou mayest release, thou art not a friend of Caesar; every one making himself a king, doth speak against Caesar.'
19:13Pilate, therefore, having heard this word, brought Jesus without -- and he sat down upon the tribunal -- to a place called, `Pavement,' and in Hebrew, Gabbatha;
19:14and it was the preparation of the passover, and as it were the sixth hour, and he saith to the Jews, `Lo, your king!'
19:15and they cried out, `Take away, take away, crucify him;' Pilate saith to them, `Your king shall I crucify?' the chief priests answered, `We have no king except Caesar.'
19:16Then, therefore, he delivered him up to them, that he may be crucified, and they took Jesus and led him away,
19:17and bearing his cross, he went forth to the place called Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha;
19:18where they crucified him, and with him two others, on this side, and on that side, and Jesus in the midst.
19:19And Pilate also wrote a title, and put it on the cross, and it was written, `Jesus the Nazarene, the king of the Jews;'
19:20this title, therefore, read many of the Jews, because the place was nigh to the city where Jesus was crucified, and it was having been written in Hebrew, in Greek, in Roman.
19:21The chief priests of the Jews said, therefore, to Pilate, `Write not -- The king of the Jews, but that one said, I am king of the Jews;'
19:22Pilate answered, `What I have written, I have written.'
19:23The soldiers, therefore, when they did crucify Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to each soldier a part, also the coat, and the coat was seamless, from the top woven throughout,
19:24they said, therefore, to one another, `We may not rend it, but cast a lot for it, whose it shall be;' that the Writing might be fulfilled, that is saying, `They divided my garments to themselves, and upon my raiment they did cast a lot;' the soldiers, therefore, indeed, did these things.
19:25And there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleopas, and Mary the Magdalene;
19:26Jesus, therefore, having seen his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he was loving, he saith to his mother, `Woman, lo, thy son;'
19:27afterward he saith to the disciple, `Lo, thy mother;' and from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
19:28After this, Jesus knowing that all things now have been finished, that the Writing may be fulfilled, saith, `I thirst;'
19:29a vessel, therefore, was placed full of vinegar, and they having filled a sponge with vinegar, and having put it around a hyssop stalk, did put it to his mouth;
19:30when, therefore, Jesus received the vinegar, he said, `It hath been finished;' and having bowed the head, gave up the spirit.
19:31The Jews, therefore, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, since it was the preparation, (for that sabbath day was a great one,) asked of Pilate that their legs may be broken, and they taken away.
19:32The soldiers, therefore, came, and of the first indeed they did break the legs, and of the other who was crucified with him,
19:33and having come to Jesus, when they saw him already having been dead, they did not break his legs;
19:34but one of the soldiers with a spear did pierce his side, and immediately there came forth blood and water;
19:35and he who hath seen hath testified, and his testimony is true, and that one hath known that true things he speaketh, that ye also may believe.
19:36For these things came to pass, that the Writing may be fulfilled, `A bone of him shall not be broken;'
19:37and again another Writing saith, `They shall look to him whom they did pierce.'
19:38And after these things did Joseph of Arimathea -- being a disciple of Jesus, but concealed, through the fear of the Jews -- ask of Pilate, that he may take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave leave; he came, therefore, and took away the body of Jesus,
19:39and Nicodemus also came -- who came unto Jesus by night at the first -- bearing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, as it were, a hundred pounds.
19:40They took, therefore, the body of Jesus, and bound it with linen clothes with the spices, according as it was the custom of the Jews to prepare for burial;
19:41and there was in the place where he was crucified a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one was yet laid;
19:42there, therefore, because of the preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was nigh, they laid Jesus.
20:1And on the first of the sabbaths, Mary the Magdalene doth come early (there being yet darkness) to the tomb, and she seeth the stone having been taken away out of the tomb,
20:2she runneth, therefore, and cometh unto Simon Peter, and unto the other disciple whom Jesus was loving, and saith to them, `They took away the Lord out of the tomb, and we have not known where they laid him.'
20:3Peter, therefore, went forth, and the other disciple, and they were coming to the tomb,
20:4and the two were running together, and the other disciple did run forward more quickly than Peter, and came first to the tomb,
20:5and having stooped down, seeth the linen clothes lying, yet, indeed, he entered not.
20:6Simon Peter, therefore, cometh, following him, and he entered into the tomb, and beholdeth the linen clothes lying,
20:7and the napkin that was upon his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but apart, having been folded up, in one place;
20:8then, therefore, entered also the other disciple who came first unto the tomb, and he saw, and did believe;
20:9for not yet did they know the Writing, that it behoveth him out of the dead to rise again.
20:10The disciples therefore went away again unto their own friends,
20:11and Mary was standing near the tomb, weeping without; as she was weeping, then, she stooped down to the tomb,
20:12and beholdeth two messengers in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid.
20:13And they say to her, `Woman, why dost thou weep?' she saith to them, `Because they took away my Lord, and I have not known where they laid him;'
20:14and these things having said, she turned backward, and seeth Jesus standing, and she had not known that it is Jesus.
20:15Jesus saith to her, `Woman, why dost thou weep? whom dost thou seek;' she, supposing that he is the gardener, saith to him, `Sir, if thou didst carry him away, tell me where thou didst lay him, and I will take him away;'
20:16Jesus saith to her, `Mary!' having turned, she saith to him, `Rabbouni;' that is to say, `Teacher.'
20:17Jesus saith to her, `Be not touching me, for I have not yet ascended unto my Father; and be going on to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and to your God.'
20:18Mary the Magdalene cometh, telling to the disciples that she hath seen the Lord, and that these things he said to her.
20:19It being, therefore, evening, on that day, the first of the sabbaths, and the doors having been shut where the disciples were assembled, through fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, `Peace to you;'
20:20and this having said, he shewed them his hands and side; the disciples, therefore, rejoiced, having seen the Lord.
20:21Jesus, therefore, said to them again, `Peace to you; according as the Father hath sent me, I also send you;'
20:22and this having said, he breathed on them, and saith to them, `Receive the Holy Spirit;
20:23if of any ye may loose the sins, they are loosed to them; if of any ye may retain, they have been retained.'
20:24And Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came;
20:25the other disciples, therefore, said to him, `We have seen the Lord;' and he said to them, `If I may not see in his hands the mark of the nails, and may put my finger to the mark of the nails, and may put my hand to his side, I will not believe.'
20:26And after eight days, again were his disciples within, and Thomas with them; Jesus cometh, the doors having been shut, and he stood in the midst, and said, `Peace to you!'
20:27then he saith to Thomas, `Bring thy finger hither, and see my hands, and bring thy hand, and put it to my side, and become not unbelieving, but believing.'
20:28And Thomas answered and said to him, `My Lord and my God;'
20:29Jesus saith to him, `Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed; happy those not having seen, and having believed.'
20:30Many indeed, therefore, other signs also did Jesus before his disciples, that are not written in this book;
20:31and these have been written that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye may have life in his name.'
21:1After these things did Jesus manifest himself again to the disciples on the sea of Tiberias, and he did manifest himself thus:
21:2There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas who is called Didymus, and Nathanael from Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples.
21:3Simon Peter saith to them, `I go away to fish;' they say to him, `We go -- we also -- with thee;' they went forth and entered into the boat immediately, and on that night they caught nothing.
21:4And morning being now come, Jesus stood at the shore, yet indeed the disciples did not know that it is Jesus;
21:5Jesus, therefore, saith to them, `Lads, have ye any meat?' they answered him, `No;'
21:6and he said to them, `Cast the net at the right side of the boat, and ye shall find;' they cast, therefore, and no longer were they able to draw it, from the multitude of the fishes.
21:7That disciple, therefore, whom Jesus was loving saith to Peter, `The Lord it is!' Simon Peter, therefore, having heard that it is the Lord, did gird on the outer coat, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea;
21:8and the other disciples came by the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but as it were about two hundred cubits off, dragging the net of the fishes;
21:9when, therefore, they came to the land, they behold a fire of coals lying, and a fish lying on it, and bread.
21:10Jesus saith to them, `Bring ye from the fishes that ye caught now;'
21:11Simon Peter went up, and drew the net up on the land, full of great fishes, an hundred fifty and three, and though they were so many, the net was not rent.
21:12Jesus saith to them, `Come ye, dine;' and none of the disciples was venturing to inquire of him, `Who art thou?' knowing that it is the Lord;
21:13Jesus, therefore, doth come and take the bread and give to them, and the fish in like manner;
21:14this is now a third time Jesus was manifested to his disciples, having been raised from the dead.
21:15When, therefore, they dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, `Simon, son of Jonas, dost thou love me more than these?' he saith to him, `Yes, Lord; thou hast known that I dearly love thee;' he saith to him, `Feed my lambs.'
21:16He saith to him again, a second time, `Simon, son of Jonas, dost thou love me?' he saith to him, `Yes, Lord; thou hast known that I dearly love thee;' he saith to him, `Tend my sheep.'
21:17He saith to him the third time, `Simon, son of Jonas, dost thou dearly love me?' Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time, `Dost thou dearly love me?' and he said to him, `Lord, thou hast known all things; thou dost know that I dearly love thee.' Jesus saith to him, `Feed my sheep;
21:18verily, verily, I say to thee, When thou wast younger, thou wast girding thyself and wast walking whither thou didst will, but when thou mayest be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another will gird thee, and shall carry thee whither thou dost not will;'
21:19and this he said, signifying by what death he shall glorify God; and having said this, he saith to him, `Be following me.'
21:20And Peter having turned about doth see the disciple whom Jesus was loving following, (who also reclined in the supper on his breast, and said, `Sir, who is he who is delivering thee up?')
21:21Peter having seen this one, saith to Jesus, `Lord, and what of this one?'
21:22Jesus saith to him, `If him I will to remain till I come, what -- to thee? be thou following me.'
21:23This word, therefore, went forth to the brethren that that disciple doth not die, yet Jesus did not say to him, that he doth not die, but, `If him I will to remain till I come, what -- to thee?'
21:24this is the disciple who is testifying concerning these things, and he wrote these things, and we have known that his testimony is true.
21:25And there are also many other things -- as many as Jesus did -- which, if they may be written one by one, not even the world itself I think to have place for the books written. Amen.
