John 17

1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come;
 glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou
 hast given him. 
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom
 thou hast sent. 
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee
 before the world was. 
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they 
were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and
 have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy
 Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as 
we [are]. 
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have
 kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy
 fulfilled in themselves. 
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world,
 even as I am not of the world. 
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them
 from the evil. 
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in
 us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know
 that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 
24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may
 behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have
 known that thou hast sent me. 
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare [it]: that the love wherewith thou 
hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

John 18

1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, 
where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. 
2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his
3 Judas then, having received a band [of men] and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees,
 cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them,
 Whom seek ye? 
5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am [he]. And Judas also, which
 betrayed him, stood with them. 
6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am [he], they went backward, and fell to the ground. 
7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 
8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am [he]: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 
9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost
10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his
 right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. 
11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath
 given me, shall I not drink it? 
12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 
13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high
 priest that same year. 
14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man
 should die for the people. 
15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and [so did] another disciple: that disciple was known unto 
the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. 
16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto 
the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 
17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also [one] of this man's
 disciples? He saith, I am not. 
18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and
 they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself. 
19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 
20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the
 temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. 
21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know
 what I said. 
22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of 
his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? 
23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest
 thou me? 
24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest. 
25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also
 [one] of his disciples? He denied [it], and said, I am not. 
26 One of the servants of the high priest, being [his] kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did
 not I see thee in the garden with him? 
27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew. 
28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they 
themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the
29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? 
30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered
 him up unto thee. 
31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews 
therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: 
32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should
33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou
 the King of the Jews? 
34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me? 
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto
 me: what hast thou done? 
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then
 would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not
 from hence. 
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a
 king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness
 unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. 
38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the
 Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault [at all]. 
39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I
 release unto you the King of the Jews? 
40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

John 19

1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged [him]. 
2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put [it] on his head, and they put on him a purple
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 
4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye
 may know that I find no fault in him. 
5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] saith unto 
them, Behold the man! 
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him],
 crucify [him]. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify [him]: for I find no fault in him. 
7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made
 himself the Son of God. 
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid; 
9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave
 him no answer. 
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to
 crucify thee, and have power to release thee? 
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power [at all] against me, except it were given thee
 from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin. 
12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let
 this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment 
seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. 
14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews,
 Behold your King! 
15 But they cried out, Away with [him], away with [him], crucify him. Pilate saith unto them,
 Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. 
16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led [him]
17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called [the place] of a skull, which is called in
 the Hebrew Golgotha: 
18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. 
19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put [it] on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF
20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the
 city: and it was written in Hebrew, [and] Greek, [and] Latin. 
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he
 said, I am King of the Jews. 
22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. 
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to
 every soldier a part; and also [his] coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be:
 that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my
 vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. 
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the [wife] of
 Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith
 unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto
 his own [home]. 
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be
 fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put [it]
 upon hyssop, and put [it] to his mouth. 
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head,
 and gave up the ghost. 
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the
 cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day) besought Pilate that their legs
 might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away. 
32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified
 with him. 
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 
34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and 
35 And he that saw [it] bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that 
ye might believe. 
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be
37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. 
38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews,
 besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave. He came
 therefore, and took the body of Jesus. 
39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a
 mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound [weight]. 
40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner
 of the Jews is to bury. 
41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new 
sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. 
42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation [day]; for the sepulchre was
 nigh at hand.

John 20

1 The first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the
 sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 
2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and 
saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they 
have laid him. 
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 
4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the
5 And he stooping down, [and looking in], saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 
6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen
 clothes lie, 
7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together
 in a place by itself. 
8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and
9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. 
11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, [and
 looked] into the sepulchre, 
12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the
 body of Jesus had lain. 
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have
 taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that
 it was Jesus. 
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be
 the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him,
 and I will take him away. 
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, 
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my 
brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your 
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and [that] he had
 spoken these things unto her. 
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut
 where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and
 saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you. 
20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them [his] hands and his side. Then were the
 disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. 
21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace [be] unto you: as [my] Father hath sent me, even so send I 
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on [them], and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy
23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; [and] whose soever [sins] ye retain,
 they are retained. 
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them,
 Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails,
 and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus,
 the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace [be] unto you. 
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy
 hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 
29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they 
that have not seen, and [yet] have believed. 
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in
 this book: 
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that
 believing ye might have life through his name.

John 21

1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this
 wise shewed he [himself]. 
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in 
Galilee, and the [sons] of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went
 forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 
4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that 
it was Jesus. 
5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. 
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast 
therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. 
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter
 heard that it was the Lord, he girt [his] fisher's coat [unto him], (for he was naked) and did cast
 himself into the sea. 
8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two
 hundred cubits) dragging the net with fishes. 
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and
10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 
11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and
 three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come [and] dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou?
 knowing that it was the Lord. 
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen
 from the dead. 
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, [son] of Jonas, lovest thou me
more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him,
 Feed my lambs. 
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, [son] of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto
 him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, [son] of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved
 because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou
 knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst
 whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another
 shall gird thee, and carry [thee] whither thou wouldest not. 
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this,
 he saith unto him, Follow me. 
20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on
 his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 
21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what [shall] this man [do]? 
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what [is that] to thee? follow thou me. 
23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus
 said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what [is that] to thee? 
24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that
 his testimony is true. 
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written
 every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.
