Books of the New Covenant
1:1 In the beginning was the spoken word, and
the words were from Yahweh, and the words
1:2 It was in the beginning from Yahweh.
1:3 All things were made through Yahweh’s
word, and without it nothing was made that was
1:4 In Yahweh’s word was Life, and the Life
was the Light of men.
1:5 And the Light shines in the darkness, and the
darkness did not comprehend it.
1:6 There was a man sent from Yahweh, whose
name was John.
1:7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness
of the Light, that all through him might believe.
1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.
1:9 That was the true Light which gives light to
every man coming into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was
made because of Him, and the world did not
1:11 He came to His own, and His own did not
1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He
gave the right to become children of Yahweh, to
those who believe in His name:
1:13 who were born not of blood or of the will of
the flesh nor of the will of man but of Yahweh.
1:14 And the word [of Yahweh] did make Him
into flesh to dwell among us, and we beheld His
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father, full of grace and truth.
1:15 John bore witness of Him and cried out,
saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who
comes after me is preferred before me, for He
was before me.' "
1:16 And of His fullness we have all received,
and grace for grace.
1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but
grace and truth came through Yah’shua the
1:18 No one has seen Yahweh at any time. The
only begotten Son, who is in the bosom [loving
embrace] of the Father, He has declared Him.
1:19 Now this is the testimony of John, when
the Edomites sent priests and Levites from
Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
1:20 He confessed, and did not deny, but
confessed, "I am not the Messiah."
1:21 And they asked him, "What then? Are you
Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the
Prophet?" And he answered, "No."
1:22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, that
we may give an answer to those who sent us?
What do you say about yourself?"
1:23 He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in
the wilderness: "Make straight the way of
Yahweh," ' as the prophet Isaiah said."
1:24 Now those who were sent were from the
1:25 And they asked him, saying, "Why then do
you baptize if you are not the Messiah, nor
Elijah, nor the Prophet?"
1:26 John answered them, saying, "I baptize with
water, but there stands One among you whom
you do not know.
1:27 "It is He who, coming after me, is preferred
before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to
1:28 These things were done in Bethabara
beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
1:29 The next day John saw Yah’shua coming
toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of
Yahweh who takes away the sin of the world!
1:30 "This is He of whom I said, 'After me
comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He
was before me.'
1:31 "I did not know Him; but that He should be
revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing
1:32 And John bore witness, saying, "I saw His
Spirit descending from the sky like a dove, and
He remained upon Him.
1:33 "I did not know Him, but He who sent me
to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom
you see My Spirit descending, and remaining,
this is He who baptizes with My Holy Spirit.'
1:34 "And I have seen and testified that this is
the Son of Yahweh."
1:35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of
1:36 And looking at Yah’shua as He walked, he
said, "Behold the Lamb of Yahweh!"
1:37 The two disciples heard him speak, and
they followed Yah’shua.
1:38 Then Yah’shua turned, and seeing them
following, said to them, "What do you seek?"
They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say,
when translated, Teacher), "where are You
1:39 He said to them, "Come and see." They
came and saw where He was staying, and
remained with Him that day (now it was about
the tenth hour).
1:40 One of the two who heard John speak, and
followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's
1:41 He first found his own brother Simon, and
said to him, "We have found the Annoited One"
(which is translated, the Messiah).
1:42 And he brought him to Yah’shua. Now
when Yah’shua looked at him, He said, "You are
Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called
Cephas" (which is translated, A Stone).
1:43 The next day Yah’shua wanted to go to
Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him,
1:44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of
Andrew and Peter.
1:45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him,
"We have found Him of whom Moses in the law,
and also the prophets, wrote-Yah’shua of
Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
1:46 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything
good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him,
"Come and see."
1:47 Yah’shua saw Nathanael coming toward
Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite
indeed, in whom is no deceit!"
1:48 Nathanael said to Him, "How do You know
me?" Yah’shua answered and said to him,
"Before Philip called you, when you were under
the fig tree, I saw you."
1:49 Nathanael answered and said to Him,
"Rabbi, You are the Son of Yahweh! You are the
King of Israel!"
1:50 Yah’shua answered and said, "Because I
said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you
believe? You will see greater things than these."
1:51 And He said to him, "Most assuredly, I say
to you, hereafter you shall see the sky open, and
the angels of Yahweh ascending and descending
upon the Son of Man."
2:1 On the third day there was a wedding in
Cana of Galilee, and Yahsua’s mother was there.
2:2 Now both Yah’shua and His disciples were
invited to the wedding.
2:3 And when they ran out of wine, the mother
of Yah’shua said to Him, "They have no wine."
2:4 Yah’shua said to her, "Woman, what does
your concern have to do with Me? My hour has
not yet come."
2:5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever
He says to you, do it."
2:6 Now there were set there six waterpots of
stone, according to the manner of purification of
the Hebrews, containing twenty or thirty gallons
2:7 Yah’shua said to them, "Fill the waterpots
with water." And they filled them up to the brim.
2:8 And He said to them, "Draw some out now,
and take it to the master of the feast." And they
2:9 When the master of the feast had tasted the
water that was made wine, and did not know
where it came from (but the servants who had
drawn the water knew), the master of the feast
called the bridegroom.
2:10 And he said to him, "Every man at the
beginning sets out the good wine, and when the
guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You
have kept the good wine until now!"
2:11 This beginning of signs Yah’shua did in
Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and
His disciples believed in Him.
2:12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He,
His mother, His brothers, and His disciples; and
they did not stay there many days.
2:13 Now the Passover of the Hebrews was at
hand, and Yah’shua went up to Jerusalem.
2:14 And He found in the temple those who sold
oxen and sheep and doves, and the
moneychangers doing business.
2:15 When He had made a whip of cords, He
drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep
and the oxen, and poured out the changers'
money and overturned the tables.
2:16 And He said to those who sold doves, "Take
these things away! Do not make My Father's
house a house of merchandise!"
2:17 Then His disciples remembered that it was
written, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up."
2:18 So the Edomites answered and said to Him,
"What sign do You show to us, since You do
2:19 Yah’shua answered and said to them,
"Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up."
2:20 Then the Edomites said, "It has taken fortysix
years to build this temple, and will You raise
it up in three days?"
2:21 But He was speaking of the temple of His
2:22 Therefore, when He had risen from the
dead, His disciples remembered that He had said
this to them; and they believed the Scripture and
the word which Yah’shua had said.
2:23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the
Passover, during the feast, many believed in His
name when they saw the signs which He did.
2:24 But Yah’shua did not commit Himself to
them, because He knew all men,
2:25 and had no need that anyone should testify
of man, for He knew what was in man.
3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees named
Nicodemus, a ruler of the Edomites.
3:2 This man came to Yah’shua by night and
said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a
teacher come from Yahweh; for no one can do
these signs that You do unless Yahweh is with
3:3 Yah’shua answered and said to him, "Most
assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of Yahweh."
3:4 Nicodemus said 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?"
3:5 Yah’shua answered, "Most assuredly, I say
to you, unless one is born of water and of His
Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of Yahweh.
3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and
that which is born of His Spirit is spirit.
3:7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must
be born again.'
3:8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you
hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it
comes from and where it goes. So is everyone
who is born of His Spirit."
3:9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How
can these things be?"
3:10 Yah’shua answered and said to him, "Are
you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these
3:11 "Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak
what We know and testify what We have seen,
and you do not receive Our witness.
3:12 "If I have told you earthly things and you do
not believe, how will you believe if I tell you
3:13 "No one has ascended to heaven but
Yahweh who came down from heaven, that is,
by the Son of Man who is to be in heaven.
3:14 "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the
wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be
3:15 "that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have eternal life.
3:16 "For Yahweh so loved the world that He
sent forth His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not perish but have
3:17 "For Yahweh did not send His Son into the
world to condemn the world, but that the world
through Him might be saved.
3:18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned;
but he who does not believe is condemned
already, because he has not believed in the name
of the only begotten Son of Yahweh.
3:19 "And this is the condemnation, that the light
has come into the world, and men loved darkness
rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
3:20 "For everyone practicing evil hates the light
and does not come to the light, lest his deeds
should be exposed.
3:21 "But he who does the truth comes to the
light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that
they have been done in Yahweh."
3:22 After these things Yah’shua and His
disciples came into the land of Judea, and there
He remained with them and baptized.
3:23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near
Salim, because there was much water there. And
they came and were baptized.
3:24 For John had not yet been thrown in prison.
3:25 Then a dispute arose between some of
John's disciples and the Edomites about
3:26 And they came to John and said to him,
"Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the
Jordan, to whom you have testified-behold, He is
baptizing, and all are coming to Him!"
3:27 John answered and said, "A man can
receive nothing unless it has been given to him
3:28 "You yourselves bear me witness, that I
said, 'I am not the Messiah,' but, 'I have been sent
3:29 "He who has the bride is the bridegroom;
but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and
hears him, rejoices greatly because of the
bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is
3:30 "He must increase, but I must decrease.
3:31 "He who comes from above is above all; he
who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the
earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.
3:32 "And what He has seen and heard, that He
testifies; and no one receives His testimony.
3:33 "He who has received His testimony has
certified that Yahweh is true.
3:34 "For He whom Yahweh has sent speaks the
words of Yahweh, for Yahweh does not give His
Spirit by measure.
3:35 "The Father loves the Son, and has given all
things into His hand.
3:36 "He who believes in the Son has everlasting
life; and he who does not believe the Son shall
not see life, but the wrath of Yahweh abides on
4:1 Therefore, when Yah’shua knew that the
Pharisees had heard that Yah’shua made and
baptized more disciples than John
4:2 (though Yah’shua Himself did not baptize,
but His disciples),
4:3 He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.
4:4 But He needed to go through Samaria.
4:5 So He came to a city of Samaria which is
called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob
gave to his son Joseph.
4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Yah’shua
therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat
thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water.
Yah’shua said to her, "Give Me a drink."
4:8 For His disciples had gone away into the city
to buy food.
4:9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him,
"How is it that You, being a Hebrew, ask a drink
from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Hebrews
have no dealings with Samaritans.
4:10 Yah’shua answered and said to her, "If you
knew the gift of Yahweh, and who it is who says
to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked
Him, and He would have given you living
4:11 The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have
nothing to draw with, and the well is deep.
Where then do You get that living water?
4:12 "Are You greater than our father Jacob,
who gave us the well, and drank from it himself,
as well as his sons and his livestock?"
4:13 Yah’shua answered and said to her,
"Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
4:14 "but whoever drinks of the water that I shall
give him will never thirst. But the water that I
shall give him will become in him a fountain of
water springing up into everlasting life."
4:15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this
water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to
4:16 Yah’shua said to her, "Go, call your
husband, and come here."
4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no
husband." Yah’shua said to her, "You have well
said, 'I have no husband,'
4:18 "for you have had five husbands, and the
one whom you now have is not your husband; in
that you spoke truly."
4:19 The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive
that You are a prophet.
4:20 "Our fathers worshiped on this mountain,
and you Hebrews say that in Jerusalem is the
place where one ought to worship."
4:21 Yah’shua said to her, "Woman, believe Me,
the hour is coming when you will neither on this
mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
4:22 "You worship what you do not know; we
know what we worship, for salvation is of the
4:23 "But the hour is coming, and now is, when
the true worshipers will worship the Father in
spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to
4:24 "Yahweh is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."
4:25 The woman said to Him, "I know that the
Annoited One is coming" (who is called the
Messiah). "When He comes, He will tell us all
4:26 Yah’shua said to her, "I who speak to you
4:27 And at this point His disciples came, and
they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet
no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are
You talking with her?"
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her
way into the city, and said to the men,
4:29 "Come, see a Man who told me all things
that I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?"
4:30 Then they went out of the city and came to
4:31 In the meantime His disciples urged Him,
saying, "Rabbi, eat."
4:32 But He said to them, "I have food to eat of
which you do not know."
4:33 Therefore the disciples said to one another,
"Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?"
4:34 Yah’shua said, "My food is to do the will of
Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
4:35 "Do you not say, 'There are still four
months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I
say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the
fields, for they are already white for harvest!
4:36 "And he who reaps receives wages, and
gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who
sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
4:37 "For in this the saying is true: 'One sows
and another reaps.'
4:38 "I sent you to reap that for which you have
not labored; others have labored, and you have
entered into their labors."
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city
believed in Him because of the word of the
woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever
4:40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him,
they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed
there two days.
4:41 And many more believed because of His
4:42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we
believe, not because of what you said, for we
ourselves have heard Him and we know that this
is indeed the Messiah, the Savior of the world."
4:43 Now after the two days He departed from
there and went to Galilee.
4:44 For Yah’shua Himself testified that a
prophet has no honor in his own country.
4:45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans
received Him, having seen all the things He did
in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone
to the feast.
4:46 So Yah’shua came again to Cana of Galilee
where He had made the water wine. And there
was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at
4:47 When he heard that Yah’shua had come out
of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and
implored Him to come down and heal his son,
for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then Yah’shua said to him, "Unless you
people see signs and wonders, you will by no
4:49 The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come
down before my child dies!"
4:50 Yah’shua said to him, "Go your way; your
son lives." So the man believed the word that
Yah’shua spoke to him, and he went his way.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his
servants met him and told him, saying, "Your
4:52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he
got better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at
the seventh hour the fever left him."
4:53 So the father knew that it was at the same
hour in which Yah’shua said to him, "Your son
lives." And he himself believed, and his whole
4:54 This again is the second sign Yah’shua did
when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
5:1 After this there was a feast of the Hebrews,
and Yah’shua went up to Jerusalem.
5:2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate
a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda,
having five porches.
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people,
blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of
5:4 For an angel went down at a certain time into
the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever
stepped in first, after the stirring of the water,
was made well of whatever disease he had.
5:5 Now a certain man was there who had an
infirmity thirty-eight years.
5:6 When Yah’shua saw him lying there, and
knew that he already had been in that condition a
long time, He said to him, "Do you want to be
5:7 The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I have no
man to put me into the pool when the water is
stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps
down before me."
5:8 Yah’shua said to him, "Rise, take up your
bed and walk."
5:9 And immediately the man was made well,
took up his bed, and walked. And that day was
5:10 The Edomites therefore said to him who
was cured, "It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for
you to carry your bed."
5:11 He answered them, "He who made me well
said to me, 'Take up your bed and walk.' "
5:12 Then they asked him, "Who is the Man who
said to you, 'Take up your bed and walk'?"
5:13 But the one who was healed did not know
who it was, for Yah’shua had withdrawn, a
multitude being in that place.
5:14 Afterward Yah’shua found him in the
temple, and said to him, "See, you have been
made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come
5:15 The man departed and told the Edomites
that it was Yah’shua who had made him well.
5:16 For this reason the Edomites persecuted
Yah’shua, and sought to kill Him, because He
had done these things on the Sabbath.
5:17 But Yah’shua answered them, "My Father
has been working until now, and I have been
5:18 Therefore the Edomites sought all the more
to kill Him, because He not only broke the
Sabbath, but also said that Yahweh was His
Father, making Himself equal with Yahweh.
5:19 Then Yah’shua answered and said to them,
"Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do
nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father
do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in
5:20 "For the Father loves the Son, and shows
Him all things that He Himself does; and He will
show Him greater works than these, that you
5:21 "For as the Father raises the dead and gives
life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom
5:22 "For the Father judges no one, but has
committed all judgment to the Son,
5:23 "that all should honor the Son just as they
honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son
does not honor the Father who sent Him.
5:24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears
My word and believes in Him who sent Me has
everlasting life, and shall not come into
judgment, but has passed from death into life.
5:25 "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is
coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the
voice of the Son of Yahweh; and those who hear
5:26 "For as the Father has life in Himself, so He
has granted the Son to have life in Himself,
5:27 "and has given Him authority to execute
judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.
5:28 "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is
coming in which all who are in the graves will
hear His voice
5:29 "and come forth-those who have done good,
to the resurrection of life, and those who have
done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
5:30 "I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I
judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I
do not seek My own will but the will of the
Father who sent Me.
5:31 "If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is
5:32 "There is another who bears witness of Me,
and I know that the witness which He witnesses
of Me is true.
5:33 "You have sent to John, and he has borne
witness to the truth.
5:34 "Yet I do not receive testimony from man,
but I say these things that you may be saved.
5:35 "He was the burning and shining lamp, and
you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light.
5:36 "But I have a greater witness than John's;
for the works which the Father has given Me to
finish-the very works that I do-bear witness of
Me, that the Father has sent Me.
5:37 "And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has
testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice
at any time, nor seen His form.
5:38 "But you do not have His word abiding in
you, because whom He sent, Him you do not
5:39 "You search the Scriptures, for in them you
think you have eternal life; and these are they
which testify of Me.
5:40 "But you are not willing to come to Me that
you may have life.
5:41 "I do not receive honor from men.
5:42 "But I know you, that you do not have the
love of Yahweh in you.
5:43 "I have come in My Father's name, and you
do not receive Me; if another comes in his own
name, him you will receive.
5:44 "How can you believe, who receive honor
from one another, and do not seek the honor that
comes from the only God?
5:45 "Do not think that I shall accuse you to the
Father; there is one who accuses you-Moses, in
whom you trust.
5:46 "For if you believed Moses, you would
believe Me; for he wrote about Me.
5:47 "But if you do not believe his writings, how
will you believe My words?"
6:1 After these things Yah’shua went over the
Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias.
6:2 Then a great multitude followed Him,
because they saw His signs which He performed
on those who were diseased.
6:3 And Yah’shua went up on the mountain, and
there He sat with His disciples.
6:4 Now the Passover, a feast of the Hebrews,
6:5 Then Yah’shua lifted up His eyes, and seeing
a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to
Philip, "Where shall we buy bread, that these
6:6 But this He said to test him, for He Himself
knew what He would do.
6:7 Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii
worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that
every one of them may have a little."
6:8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's
brother, said to Him,
6:9 "There is a lad here who has five barley
loaves and two small fish, but what are they
among so many?"
6:10 Then Yah’shua said, "Make the people sit
down." Now there was much grass in the place.
So the men sat down, in number about five
6:11 And Yah’shua took the loaves, and when
He had given thanks He distributed them to the
disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down;
and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.
6:12 So when they were filled, He said to His
disciples, "Gather up the fragments that remain,
so that nothing is lost."
6:13 Therefore they gathered them up, and filled
twelve baskets with the fragments of the five
barley loaves which were left over by those who
6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the
sign that Yah’shua did, said, "This is truly the
Prophet who is to come into the world."
6:15 Therefore when Yah’shua perceived that
they were about to come and take Him by force
to make Him king, He departed again to the
mountain by Himself alone.
6:16 Now when evening came, His disciples
went down to the sea,
6:17 got into the boat, and went over the sea
toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and
Yah’shua had not come to them.
6:18 Then the sea arose because a great wind
6:19 So when they had rowed about three or four
miles, they saw Yah’shua walking on the sea and
drawing near the boat; and they were afraid.
6:20 But He said to them, "It is I; do not be
6:21 Then they willingly received Him into the
boat, and immediately the boat was at the land
where they were going.
6:22 On the following day, when the people
who were standing on the other side of the sea
saw that there was no other boat there, except
that one which His disciples had entered, and
that Yah’shua had not entered the boat with His
disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone-
6:23 however, other boats came from Tiberias,
near the place where they ate bread after
Yah’shua had given thanks-
6:24 when the people therefore saw that
Yah’shua was not there, nor His disciples, they
also got into boats and came to Capernaum,
6:25 And when they found Him on the other side
of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did
You come here?"
6:26 Yah’shua answered them and said, "Most
assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because
you saw the signs, but because you ate of the
loaves and were filled.
6:27 "Do not labor for the food which perishes,
but for the food which endures to everlasting life,
which the Son of Man will give you, because
Yahweh the Father has set His seal on Him."
6:28 Then they said to Him, "What shall we do,
that we may work the works of Yahweh?"
6:29 Yah’shua answered and said to them, "This
is the work of Yahweh, that you believe in Him
whom He sent."
6:30 Therefore they said to Him, "What sign will
You perform then, that we may see it and believe
You? What work will You do?
6:31 "Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as
it is written, 'He gave them bread from the sky to
6:32 Then Yah’shua said to them, "Most
assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you
the bread from the sky, but My Father gives you
the true bread of heaven.
6:33 "For the bread of Yahweh is He who comes
with heaven and gives life to the world."
6:34 Then they said to Him, "Lord, give us this
6:35 Yah’shua said to them, "I am of the bread
of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger,
and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
6:36 "But I said to you that you have seen Me
and yet do not believe.
6:37 "All that the Father gives Me will come to
Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no
means cast out.
6:38 "For I have been commanded from heaven,
not to do My own will, but the will of Him who
6:39 "This is the will of the Father who sent Me,
that of all He has given Me I should lose
nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
6:40 "And this is the will of Him who sent Me,
that everyone who sees the Son and believes in
Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise
him up at the last day."
6:41 The Edomites then complained about Him,
because He said, "I am the bread which came
down from heaven."
6:42 And they said, "Is not this Yah’shua, the
son of Joseph, whose father and mother we
know? How is it then that He says, 'I have come
down from heaven'?"
6:43 Yah’shua therefore answered and said to
them, "Do not murmur among yourselves.
6:44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father
who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up
at the last day.
6:45 "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall
all be taught by Yahweh.' Therefore everyone
has heard and learned from the Father comes to
6:46 "Not that anyone has seen the Father,
except He who is from Yahweh; He has seen
Yahweh the Father.
6:47 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who
believes in Me has everlasting life.
6:48 "I am of the bread of life.
6:49 "Your fathers ate the manna in the
wilderness, and are dead.
6:50 "This is the bread which comes down from
heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.
6:51 "I am of the living bread which came down
from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will
live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My
flesh, which I shall give for the life of the
6:52 The Edomites therefore quarreled among
themselves, saying, "How can this Man give us
His flesh to eat?"
6:53 Then Yah’shua said to them, "Most
assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh
of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have
no life in you.
6:54 "Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My
blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at
the last day.
6:55 "For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood
is drink indeed.
6:56 "He who eats My flesh and drinks My
blood abides in Me, and I in him.
6:57 "As the living Father sent Me, and I live
because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me
will live because of Me.
6:58 "This is the bread which came down from
heaven-not as your fathers ate the manna, and are
dead. He who eats this bread will live forever."
6:59 These things He said in the synagogue as
He taught in Capernaum.
6:60 Therefore many of His disciples, when
they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying; who
can understand it?"
6:61 When Yah’shua knew in Himself that His
disciples complained about this, He said to them,
"Does this offend you?
6:62 "What then if you should see the Son of
Man ascend where He will be first?
6:63 "It is His Spirit who gives life; the flesh
profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are
of the spirit, and they are of life.
6:64 "But there are some of you who do not
believe." For Yah’shua knew from the beginning
who they were who did not believe, and who
would betray Him.
6:65 And He said, "Therefore I have said to you
that no one can come to Me unless it has been
granted to him by My Father."
6:66 From that time many of His disciples went
back and walked with Him no more.
6:67 Then Yah’shua said to the twelve, "Do you
also want to go away?"
6:68 But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to
whom shall we go? You have the words of
6:69 "Also we have come to believe and know
that You are the Messiah, the Son of the living
6:70 Yah’shua answered them, "Did I not choose
you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?"
6:71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of
Simon, for it was he who would betray Him,
being one of the twelve.
7:1 After these things Yah’shua walked in
Galilee; for He did not want to walk in Judea,
because the Edomites sought to kill Him.
7:2 Now the Hebrews' Feast of Tabernacles was
7:3 His brothers therefore said to Him, "Depart
from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples
also may see the works that You are doing.
7:4 "For no one does anything in secret while he
himself seeks to be known openly. If You do
these things, show Yourself to the world."
7:5 For even His brothers did not believe in Him.
7:6 Then Yah’shua said to them, "My time has
not yet come, but your time is always ready.
7:7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me
because I testify of it that its works are evil.
7:8 "You go up to this feast. I am not yet going
up to this feast, for My time has not yet fully
7:9 When He had said these things to them, He
remained in Galilee.
7:10 But when His brothers had gone up, then
He also went up to the feast, not openly, but as it
were in secret.
7:11 Then the Edomites sought Him at the feast,
and said, "Where is He?"
7:12 And there was much complaining among
the people concerning Him. Some said, "He is
good"; others said, "No, on the contrary, He
deceives the people."
7:13 However, no one spoke openly of Him for
fear of the Edomites.
7:14 Now about the middle of the feast Yah’shua
went up into the temple and taught.
7:15 And the Hebrews marveled, saying, "How
does this Man know letters, not having studied?"
7:16 Yah’shua answered them and said, "My
doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.
7:17 "If anyone wants to do His will, he shall
know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from
Yahweh or whether I speak on My own
7:18 "He who speaks from himself seeks his own
glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One
who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is
7:19 "Did not Moses give you the law, yet none
of you keeps it? Why do you seek to kill Me?"
7:20 The people answered and said, "You have a
demon. Who is seeking to kill You?"
7:21 Yah’shua answered and said to them, "I did
one work, and you all marvel.
7:22 "Moses therefore gave you circumcision
(not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers),
and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.
7:23 "If a man receives circumcision on the
Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be
broken, are you angry with Me because I made a
man completely well on the Sabbath?
7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but
judge with righteous judgment."
7:25 Now some of them from Jerusalem said,
"Is this not He whom they seek to kill?
7:26 "But look! He speaks boldly, and they say
nothing to Him. Do the rulers know indeed that
this is truly the Messiah?
7:27 "However, we know where this Man is
from; but when the Messiah comes, no one
knows where He is from."
7:28 Then Yah’shua cried out, as He taught in
the temple, saying, "You both know Me, and you
know where I am from; and I have not come of
Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you
do not know.
7:29 "But I know Him, for I am from Him, and
He sent Me."
7:30 Therefore they sought to take Him; but no
one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had
not yet come.
7:31 And many of the people believed in Him,
and said, "When the Messiah comes, will He do
more signs than these which this Man has done?"
7:32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring
these things concerning Him, and the Pharisees
and the chief priests sent officers to take Him.
7:33 Then Yah’shua said to them, "I shall be
with you a little while longer, and then I go to
Him who sent Me.
7:34 "You will seek Me and not find Me, and
where I am you cannot come."
7:35 Then the Hebrews said among themselves,
"Where does He intend to go that we shall not
find Him? Does He intend to go to the
Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the
7:36 "What is this thing that He said, 'You will
seek Me and not find Me, and where I am you
7:37 On the last day, that great day of the feast,
Yah’shua stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone
thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
7:38 "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture
has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of
7:39 But this He spoke concerning His Spirit,
whom those believing in Him would receive; for
His Holy Spirit was not yet given, because
Yah’shua was not yet glorified.
7:40 Therefore many from the crowd, when they
heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the
7:41 Others said, "This is the Messiah." But
some said, "Will the Messiah come out of
7:42 "Has not the Scripture said that the Messiah
comes from the seed of David and from the town
of Bethlehem, where David was?"
7:43 So there was a division among the people
because of Him.
7:44 Now some of them wanted to take Him, but
no one laid hands on Him.
7:45 Then the officers came to the chief priests
and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why have you
not brought Him?"
7:46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke
like this Man!"
7:47 Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are
you also deceived?
7:48 "Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees
believed in Him?
7:49 "But this crowd that does not know the law
7:50 Nicodemus (he who came to Yah’shua by
night, being one of them) said to them,
7:51 "Does our law judge a man before it hears
him and knows what he is doing?"
7:52 They answered and said to him, "Are you
also from Galilee? Search and look, for no
prophet has arisen out of Galilee."
7:53 And everyone went to his own house.
8:1 But Yah’shua went to the Mount of Olives.
8:2 Now early in the morning He came again
into the temple, and all the people came to Him;
and He sat down and taught them.
8:3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to
Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they
had set her in the midst,
8:4 they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was
caught in adultery, in the very act.
8:5 "Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that
such should be stoned. But what do You say?"
8:6 This they said, testing Him, that they might
have something of which to accuse Him. But
Yah’shua stooped down and wrote on the ground
with His finger, as though He did not hear.
8:7 When they continued asking Him, He raised
Himself up and said, "He who is without sin
among you, let him throw the first stone."
8:8 And again He stooped down and wrote on
8:9 Then those who heard it, being guilty of this
false accusation and convicted by their
conscience, went out one by one, beginning with
the oldest even to the last. And Yah’shua was
left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Yah’shua had raised Himself up and
saw no one but the woman, He said to her,
"Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has
no one condemned you?"
8:11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Yah’shua
said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and
sin no more."
8:12 Then Yah’shua spoke to them again,
saying, "I am the light of the world. He who
shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of
8:13 Then the Pharisees said to Him, "You bear
witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true."
8:14 Yah’shua answered and said to them, "Even
if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true,
for I know where I came from and where I am
going; but you do not know where I come from
and where I am going.
8:15 "You judge according to the flesh; I judge
8:16 "And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true;
for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who
8:17 "It is also written in your law that the
testimony of two men is true.
8:18 "I am One who bears witness of Myself,
and the Father who sent Me bears witness of
8:19 Then they said to Him, "Where is Your
Father?" Yah’shua answered, "You know neither
Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you
would have known My Father also."
8:20 These words Yah’shua spoke in the
treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one
laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet
8:21 Then Yah’shua said to them again, "I am
going away, and you will seek Me, and will die
in your sin. Where I go you cannot come."
8:22 So the Hebrews said, "Will He kill Himself,
because He says, 'Where I go you cannot
8:23 And He said to them, "You are from
beneath; I am from above. You are of this world;
I am not of this world.
8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in
your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He,
you will die in your sins."
8:25 Then they said to Him, "Who are You?"
And Yah’shua said to them, "Just what I have
been saying to you from the beginning.
8:26 "I have many things to say and to judge
concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and
I speak to the world those things which I heard
8:27 They did not understand that He spoke to
them of the Father.
8:28 Then Yah’shua said to them, "When you lift
up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am
He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My
Father taught Me, I speak these things.
8:29 "And He who sent Me is with Me. The
Father has not left Me alone, for I always do
those things that please Him."
8:30 As He spoke these words, many believed in
8:31 Then Yah’shua said to those Hebrews who
believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are
My disciples indeed.
8:32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make you free."
8:33 They answered Him, "We are Abraham's
descendants, and have never been in bondage to
anyone. How can you say, 'You will be made
8:34 Yah’shua answered them, "Most assuredly,
I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of
8:35 "And a slave does not abide in the house
forever, but a son abides forever.
8:36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you
shall be free indeed.
8:37 "I know that you are Abraham's
descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because
My word has no place in you.
8:38 "I speak what I have seen with My Father,
and you do what you have seen with your
8:39 They answered and said to Him, "Abraham
is our father." Yah’shua said to them, "If you
were Abraham's children, you would do the
works of Abraham.
8:40 "But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who
has told you the truth which I heard from
Yahweh. Abraham did not do this.
8:41 "You do the deeds of your father." Then
they said to Him, "We were not born of adultery;
we have one Father-Yahweh."
8:42 Yah’shua said to them, "If Yahweh were
your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded
forth and came from Yahweh; nor have I come
of Myself, but He sent Me.
8:43 "Why do you not understand My speech?
Because you are not able to listen to My word.
8:44 "You are of your father the devil, and the
desires of your father you want to do. 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 from his own
resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
8:45 "But because I tell the truth, you do not
8:46 "Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I
tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?
8:47 "He who is of Yahweh hears Yahweh's
words; therefore you do not hear, because you
are not of Yahweh."
8:48 Then the Edomites answered and said to
Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a
Samaritan and have a demon?"
8:49 Yah’shua replied, "I do not have a demon;
but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.
8:50 "And I do not seek My own glory; there is
One who seeks and judges.
8:51 "Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone
keeps My word he shall never see death."
8:52 Then the Edomites said to Him, "Now we
know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead,
and the prophets; and You say, 'If anyone keeps
My word he shall never taste death.'
8:53 "Are You greater than our father Abraham,
who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Whom
do You make Yourself out to be?"
8:54 Yah’shua answered, "If I honor Myself, My
honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors
Me, of whom you say that He is your God.
8:55 "Yet you have not known Him, but I know
Him. If I say, 'I do not know Him,' I shall be a
liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His
8:56 "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My
day, and he saw it and was glad."
8:57 Then the Edomites said to Him, "You are
not yet fifty years old, and have You seen
8:58 Yah’shua said to them, "Most assuredly, I
say to you, before Abraham comes to be
[resurrected], I will be [resurrected]."
8:59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him;
but Yah’shua hid Himself and went out of the
temple, going through the midst of them, and so
9:1 Now as Yah’shua passed by, He saw a man
who was blind from birth.
9:2 And His disciples asked Him, saying,
"Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that
he was born blind?"
9:3 Yah’shua answered, "Neither this man nor
his parents sinned, but that the works of Yahweh
should be revealed in him.
9:4 "I must work the works of Him who sent Me
while it is day; the night is coming when no one
9:5 "As long as I am in the world, I am the light
of the world."
9:6 When He had said these things, He spat on
the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He
anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
9:7 And He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of
Siloam" (which is translated, Sent). So he went
and washed, and came back seeing.
9:8 Therefore the neighbors and those who
previously had seen that he was blind said, "Is
not this he who sat and begged?"
9:9 Some said, "This is he." Others said, "He is
like him." He said, "I am he."
9:10 Therefore they said to him, "How were your
9:11 He answered and said, "A Man called
Yah’shua made clay and anointed my eyes and
said to me, 'Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.'
So I went and washed, and I received sight."
9:12 Then they said to him, "Where is He?" He
said, "I do not know."
9:13 They brought him who formerly was blind
to the Pharisees.
9:14 Now it was a Sabbath when Yah’shua made
the clay and opened his eyes.
9:15 Then the Pharisees also asked him again
how he had received his sight. He said to them,
"He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I
9:16 Therefore some of the Pharisees said, "This
Man is not from Yahweh, because He does not
keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man
who is a sinner do such signs?" And there was a
division among them.
9:17 They said to the blind man again, "What do
you say about Him because He opened your
eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet."
9:18 But the Edomites did not believe
concerning him, that he had been blind and
received his sight, until they called the parents of
him who had received his sight.
9:19 And they asked them, saying, "Is this your
son, who you say was born blind? How then
does he now see?"
9:20 His parents answered them, "We know that
this is our son, and that he was born blind;
9:21 "but by what means he now sees we do not
know, or who opened his eyes we do not know.
He is of age; ask him. He will speak for himself."
9:22 His parents said these things because they
feared the Edomites, for the Edomites had agreed
already that if anyone confessed that Yah’shua
was the Messiah, he would be put out of the
9:23 Therefore his parents said, "He is of age;
9:24 So they again called the man who was
blind, and said to him, "Give Yahweh the glory!
We know that this Man is a sinner."
9:25 He answered and said, "Whether He is a
sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know:
that though I was blind, now I see."
9:26 Then they said to him again, "What did He
do to you? How did He open your eyes?"
9:27 He answered them, "I told you already, and
you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it
again? Do you also want to become His
9:28 Then they reviled him and said, "You are
His disciple, but we are Moses' disciples.
9:29 "We know that Yahweh spoke to Moses; as
for this fellow, we do not know where He is
9:30 The man answered and said to them, "Why,
this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know
where He is from; yet He has opened my eyes!
9:31 "Now we know that Yahweh does not hear
sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of Yahweh
and does His will, He hears him.
9:32 "Since the world began it has been unheard
of that anyone opened the eyes of one who was
9:33 "If this Man were not from Yahweh, He
could do nothing."
9:34 They answered and said to him, "You were
completely born in sins, and are you teaching
us?" And they cast him out.
9:35 Yah’shua heard that they had cast him out;
and when He had found him, He said to him,
"Do you believe in the Son of Yahweh?"
9:36 He answered and said, "Who is He, Lord,
that I may believe in Him?"
9:37 And Yah’shua said to him, "You have both
seen Him and it is He who is talking with you."
9:38 Then he said, "Lord, I believe!" And he
9:39 And Yah’shua said, "For judgment I have
come into this world, that those who do not see
may see, and that those who see may be made
9:40 Then some of the Pharisees who were with
Him heard these words, and said to Him, "Are
we blind also?"
9:41 Yah’shua said to them, "If you were blind,
you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We
see.' Therefore your sin remains.
10:1 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does
not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs
up some other way, the same is a thief and a
10:2 "But he who enters by the door is the
shepherd of the sheep.
10:3 "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the
sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep
by name and leads them out.
10:4 "And when he brings out his own sheep, he
goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for
they know his voice.
10:5 "Yet they will by no means follow a
stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not
know the voice of strangers."
10:6 Yah’shua used this illustration, but they did
not understand the things He spoke to them.
10:7 Then Yah’shua said to them again, "Most
assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the
10:8 "All who ever came before Me are thieves
and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
10:9 "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he
will be saved, and will go in and out and find
10:10 "The thief does not come except to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they
may have life, and that they may have it more
10:11 "I am the good shepherd. The good
shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
10:12 "But a hireling, he who is not the
shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees
the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees;
and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
10:13 "The hireling flees because he is a hireling
and does not care about the sheep.
10:14 "I am the good shepherd; and I know My
sheep, and am known by My own.
10:15 "As the Father knows Me, even so I know
the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
10:16 "And other sheep I have which are not of
this fold; them also I must bring, and they will
hear My voice; and there will be one flock and
10:17 "Therefore My Father loves Me, because I
lay down My life that I may take it again.
10:18 "No one takes it 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 command
I have received from My Father."
10:19 Therefore there was a division again
among the Edomites because of these sayings.
10:20 And many of them said, "He has a demon
and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?"
10:21 Others said, "These are not the words of
one who has a demon. Can a demon open the
eyes of the blind?"
10:22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication in
Jerusalem, and it was winter.
10:23 And Yah’shua walked in the temple, in
10:24 Then the Edomites surrounded Him and
said to Him, "How long do You keep us in
doubt? If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly."
10:25 Yah’shua answered them, "I told you, and
you do not believe. The works that I do in My
Father's name, they bear witness of Me.
10:26 "But you do not believe, because you are
not of My sheep, as I said to you.
10:27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know
them, and they follow Me.
10:28 "And I give them eternal life, and they
shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch
them out of My hand.
10:29 "My Father, who has given them to Me, is
greater than all; and no one is able to snatch
them out of My Father's hand.
10:30 "I and My Father are one."
10:31 Then the Edomites took up stones again
to stone Him.
10:32 Yah’shua answered them, "Many good
works I have shown you from My Father. For
which of those works do you stone Me?"
10:33 The Edomites answered Him, saying, "For
a good work we do not stone You, but for
blasphemy, and because You, being a Man,
make Yourself equal to Yahweh."
10:34 Yah’shua answered them, "Is it not written
in your law, 'I said, "You are gods" '?
10:35 "If He called them gods, to whom the
word of Yahweh came (and the Scripture cannot
10:36 "do you say of Him whom the Father
sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are
blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of
10:37 "If I do not do the works of My Father, do
not believe Me;
10:38 "but if I do, though you do not believe Me,
believe the works, that you may know and
believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him."
10:39 Therefore they sought again to seize Him,
but He escaped out of their hand.
10:40 And He went away again beyond the
Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at
first, and there He stayed.
10:41 Then many came to Him and said, "John
performed no sign, but all the things that John
spoke about this Man were true."
10:42 And many believed in Him there.
11:1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of
Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2 It was that Mary who anointed the Messiah
with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her
hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
11:3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying,
"Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick."
11:4 When Yah’shua heard that, He said, "This
sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of
Yahweh, that the Son of Yahweh may be
glorified through it."
11:5 Now Yah’shua loved Martha and her sister
11:6 So, when He heard that he was sick, He
stayed two more days in the place where He was.
11:7 Then after this He said to the disciples, "Let
us go to Judea again."
11:8 The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi, lately the
Edomites sought to stone You, and are You
going there again?"
11:9 Yah’shua answered, "Are there not twelve
hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he
does not stumble, because he sees the light of
11:10 "But if one walks in the night, he
stumbles, because the light is not in him."
11:11 These things He said, and after that He
said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go
that I may wake him up."
11:12 Then His disciples said, "Lord, if he sleeps
he will get well."
11:13 However, Yah’shua spoke of his death,
but they thought that He was speaking about
taking rest in sleep.
11:14 Then Yah’shua said to them plainly,
"Lazarus is dead.
11:15 "And I am glad for your sakes that I was
not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let
us go to him."
11:16 Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said
to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we
may die with Him."
11:17 So when Yah’shua came, He found that
he had already been in the tomb four days.
11:18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about
two miles away.
11:19 And many of the Edomites had joined the
women around Martha and Mary, to comfort
them concerning their brother.
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that
Yah’shua was coming, went and met Him, but
Mary was sitting in the house.
11:21 Then Martha said to Yah’shua, "Lord, if
You had been here, my brother would not have
11:22 "But even now I know that whatever You
ask of Yahweh, Yahweh will give You."
11:23 Yah’shua said to her, "Your brother will
11:24 Martha said to Him, "I know that he will
rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
11:25 Yah’shua said to her, "I am the
resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me,
though he may die, he shall live.
11:26 "And whoever lives and believes in Me
shall never die. Do you believe this?"
11:27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that
You are the Messiah, the Son of Yahweh, who is
to come into the world."
11:28 When she had said these things, she went
and secretly called Mary her sister, saying, "The
Teacher has come and is calling for you."
11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose
quickly and came to Him.
11:30 Yah’shua had not yet come into the town
but was in the place where Martha met Him.
11:31 Then the Edomites who were with her in
the house, and comforting her, when they saw
that Mary rose up quickly and went out,
followed her saying, "She is going to the tomb to
11:32 Then, when Mary came where Yah’shua
was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet,
saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my
brother would not have died."
11:33 Therefore, when Yah’shua saw her
weeping, and the Edomites who came with her
weeping, He grieved in the spirit being troubled.
11:34 And He said, "Where have you laid him?"
They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
11:35 Yah’shua wept.
11:36 Then the Edomites said, "See how He
11:37 And some of them said, "Could not this
Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also
have kept this man from dying?"
11:38 Then Yah’shua, again grieving in
Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a
stone lay against it.
11:39 Yah’shua said, "Take away the stone."
Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to
Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he
has been dead four days."
11:40 Yah’shua said to her, "Did I not say to you
that if you would believe you would see the
glory of Yahweh?"
11:41 Then they took away the stone from the
place where the dead man was lying. And
Yah’shua lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I
thank You that You have heard Me.
11:42 "And I know that You always hear Me, but
because of the people who are standing by I said
this, that they may believe that You sent Me."
11:43 Now when He had said these things, He
cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!"
11:44 And he who had died came out bound
hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face
was wrapped with a cloth. Yah’shua said to
them, "Loose him, and let him go."
11:45 Then many of the Edomites who had
come to Mary, and had seen the things Yah’shua
did, believed in Him.
11:46 But some of them went away to the
Pharisees and told them the things Yah’shua did.
11:47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees
gathered a council and said, "What shall we do?
For this Man works many signs.
11:48 "If we let Him alone like this, everyone
will believe in Him, and the Romans will come
and take away both our place and nation."
11:49 And one of them, Caiaphas, being high
priest that year, said, "You know nothing at all,
11:50 "nor do you consider that it is expedient
for us that one man should die for the people,
and not that the whole nation should perish."
11:51 He did not say on his own authority; but as
high priest that year he prophesied that Yah’shua
would die for the nation,
11:52 and not for that nation only, but also that
He would gather together in one the children of
Yahweh who were scattered abroad.
11:53 Then, from that day on, they plotted to put
Him to death.
11:54 Therefore Yah’shua no longer walked
openly among the Edomites, but went from there
into the country near the wilderness, to a city
called Ephraim, and there remained with His
11:55 And the Passover of the Hebrews was
near, and many went from the country up to
Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify
11:56 Then they sought Yah’shua, and spoke
among themselves while in the temple, "What do
you think-will He not come to the feast?"
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the
Pharisees had given a command, that if anyone
knew where He was, he should report it, that
they might seize Him.
12:1 Then, six days before Passover, Yah’shua
came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had
been dead, whom He had raised from the dead.
12:2 There they made Him a supper; and Martha
served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at
the table with Him.
12:3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil
of spikenard, anointed the feet of Yah’shua, and
wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was
filled with the fragrance of the oil.
12:4 Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot,
Simon's son, who would betray Him, said,
12:5 "Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three
hundred denarii and given to the poor?"
12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor,
but because he was a thief, and had the money
box; and he used to take what was put in it.
12:7 But Yah’shua said, "Let her alone; she has
kept this for the day of My burial.
12:8 "For the poor you have with you always,
but Me you do not have always."
12:9 Now a great many of the Edomites knew
that He was there; and they came, not for
Yah’shua’s sake only, but that they might also
see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead.
12:10 But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus
to death also,
12:11 because on account of him many of the
Edomites went away and believed in Yah’shua.
12:12 The next day a great multitude that had
come to the feast, when they heard that Yah’shua
was coming to Jerusalem,
12:13 took branches of palm trees and went out
to meet Him, and cried out:
'Blessed is He who comes in the name of
The King of Israel!"
12:14 Then Yah’shua, when He had found a
young donkey, sat on it; as it is written:
12:15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion;
Behold, your King is coming,
Sitting on a donkey's colt."
12:16 His disciples did not understand these
things at first; but when Yah’shua was glorified,
then they remembered that these things were
written about Him and that they had done these
things to Him.
12:17 Therefore the people, who were with Him
when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and
raised him from the dead, bore witness.
12:18 For this reason the people also met Him,
because they heard that He had done this sign.
12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among
themselves, "You see that you are accomplishing
nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!"
12:20 Now there were certain Greeks among
those who came up to worship at the feast.
12:21 Then they came to Philip, who was from
Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying,
"Sir, we wish to see Yah’shua."
12:22 Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn
Andrew and Philip told Yah’shua.
13:4 rose from supper and laid aside His
garments, took a towel and girded Himself.
13:5 After that, He poured water into a basin and
began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe
them with the towel with which He was girded.
13:6 Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter
said to Him, "Lord, are You washing my feet?"
13:7 Yah’shua answered and said to him, "What
I am doing you do not understand now, but you
will know after this."
13:8 Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash
my feet!" Yah’shua answered him, "If I do not
wash you, you have no part with Me."
13:9 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, not my feet
only, but also my hands and my head!"
13:10 Yah’shua said to him, "He who is bathed
needs only to wash his feet, but is completely
clean; and you are clean, but not all of you."
13:11 For He knew who would betray Him;
therefore He said, "You are not all clean."
13:12 So when He had washed their feet, taken
His garments, and sat down again, He said to
them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
13:13 "You call me Teacher and Lord, and you
say well, for so I am.
13:14 "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have
washed your feet, you also ought to wash one
13:15 "For I have given you an example, that
you should behave as I have behaved to you.
13:16 "Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is
not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent
greater than he who sent him.
13:17 "If you know these things, blessed are you
if you do them.
13:18 "I do not speak concerning all of you. I
know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture
may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with Me has
lifted up his heel against Me.'
13:19 "Now I tell you before it comes, that when
it does come to pass, you may believe that I am
13:20 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who
receives whomever I send receives Me; and he
who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."
13:21 When Yah’shua had said these things, He
was troubled in spirit, and testified and said,
"Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will
13:22 Then the disciples looked at one another,
perplexed about whom He spoke.
13:23 Now there was leaning on Yah’shua’s
bosom one of His disciples, whom Yah’shua
13:24 Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to
ask who it was of whom He spoke.
13:25 Then, leaning back on Yah’shua’s breast,
he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"
13:26 Yah’shua answered, "It is he to whom I
shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped
it." And having dipped the bread, He gave it to
Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
13:27 Now after the piece of bread, Satan
entered him. Then Yah’shua said to him, "What
you do, do quickly."
13:28 But no one at the table knew for what
reason He said this to him.
13:29 For some thought, because Judas had the
money box, that Yah’shua had said to him, "Buy
those things we need for the feast," or that he
should give something to the poor.
13:30 Having received the piece of bread, he
then went out immediately. And it was night.
13:31 So, when he had gone out, Yah’shua said,
"Now the Son of Man is glorified, and Yahweh
is glorified in Him.
13:32 "If Yahweh is glorified in Him, Yahweh
will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify
13:33 "Little children, I shall be with you a little
while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to
the Edomites, 'Where I am going, you cannot
come,' so now I say to you.
13:34 "A new commandment I give to you, that
you love one another; as I have loved you, that
you also love one another.
13:35 "By this all will know that you are My
disciples, if you have love for one another."
13:36 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, where
are You going?" Yah’shua answered him,
"Where I am going you cannot follow Me now,
but you shall follow Me afterward."
13:37 Peter said to Him, "Lord, why can I not
follow You now? I will lay down my life for
13:38 Yah’shua answered him, "Will you lay
down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I
say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you
have denied Me three times.
14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe
in Yahweh, believe also in Me.
14:2 "In My Father's house are many mansions;
if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you.
14:3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I
will come again and receive you to Myself; that
where I am, there you may be also.
14:4 "And where I go you know, and the way
14:5 Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not
know where You are going, and how can we
know the way?"
14:6 Yah’shua said to him, "I am the way, the
truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father
except through Me.
14:7 "If you had known Me, you would have
known My Father also; and from now on you
know Him and have seen Him."
14:8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the
Father, and it is sufficient for us."
14:9 Yah’shua said to him, "Have I been with
you so long, and yet you have not known Me,
Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father;
so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?
14:10 "Do you not believe that I am in the
Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I
speak to you I do not speak on My own
authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does
14:11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father and
the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake
of the works themselves.
14:12 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who
believes in Me, the works that I do he will do
also; and greater works than these he will do,
because I go to My Father.
14:13 "And whatever you ask in My name, that I
will do, that the Father may be glorified in the
14:14 "If you ask anything in My name, I will do
14:15 "If you love Me, keep My
14:16 "And I will pray the Father, and He will
give you another Helper, that He may abide with
14:17 "His Spirit of truth, whom the world
cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor
knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells
with you and will be in you.
14:18 "I will not leave you orphans; I will come
14:19 "A little while longer and the world will
see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I
live, you will live also.
14:20 "At that day you will know that I am in
My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
14:21 "He who has My commandments and
keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who
loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will
love him and manifest Myself to him."
14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord,
how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us,
and not to the world?"
14:23 Yah’shua answered and said to him, "If
anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My
Father will love him, and We will come to him
and make Our home with him.
14:24 "He who does not love Me does not keep
My words; and the word which you hear is not
Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
14:25 "These things I have spoken to you while
being present with you.
14:26 "But the Helper, His Holy Spirit, whom
the Father will send in My name, it will teach
you all things, and bring to your remembrance
all things that I said to you.
14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give
to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be
14:28 "You have heard Me say to you, 'I am
going away and coming back to you.' If you
loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I
am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater
14:29 "And now I have told you before it comes,
that when it does come to pass, you may believe.
14:30 "I will no longer talk much with you, for
the ruler of this world is coming, and he has
nothing in Me.
14:31 "But that the world may know that I love
the Father, and as the Father gave Me
commandment, so I do. Arise, let us go from
15:1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the
15:2 "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit
He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit
He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
15:3 "You are already clean because of the word
which I have spoken to you.
15:4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch
cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the
vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He
who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much
fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
15:6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast
out as a branch and is withered; and they gather
them and throw them into the fire, and they are
15:7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in
you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be
done for you.
15:8 "By this My Father is glorified, that you
bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
15:9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved
you; abide in My love.
15:10 "If you keep My commandments, you will
abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's
commandments and abide in His love.
15:11 "These things I have spoken to you, that
My joy may remain in you, and that your joy
may be full.
15:12 "This is My commandment, that you love
one another as I have loved you.
15:13 "Greater love has no one than this, than to
lay down one's life for his friends.
15:14 "You are My friends if you do whatever I
15:15 "No longer do I call you servants, for a
servant does not know what his master is doing;
but I have called you friends, for all things that I
heard from My Father I have made known to

and appointed you that you should go and bear
fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that
whatever you ask the Father in My name He may
15:17 "These things I command you, that you
love one another.
15:18 "If the world hates you, you know that it
hated Me before it hated you.
15:19 "If you were of the world, the world would
love its own. Yet because you are not of the
world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore
the world hates you.
15:20 "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.
15:21 "But all these things they will do to you
for My name's sake, because they do not know
Him who sent Me.
15:22 "If I had not come and spoken to them,
they would have no sin, but now they have no
excuse for their sin.
15:23 "He who hates Me hates My Father also.
15:24 "If I had not done among them the works
which no one else did, they would have no sin;
but now they have seen and also hated both Me
and My Father.
15:25 "But this happened that the word might be
fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They
hated Me without a cause.'
15:26 "But when the Helper comes, that I shall
send to you from the Father, His Spirit of truth
who proceeds from the Father, it will testify of

you have been with Me from the beginning.
16:1 "These things I have spoken to you, that
you should not be made to stumble.
16:2 "They will put you out of the synagogues;
yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you
will think that he offers Yahweh service.
16:3 "And these things they will do to you
because they have not known the Father nor Me.
16:4 "But these things I have told you, that when
the time comes, you may remember that I told
you of them. And these things I did not say to
you at the beginning, because I was with you.
16:5 "But now I go away to Him who sent Me,
and none of you asks Me, 'Where are You
16:6 "But because I have said these things to
you, sorrow has filled your heart.
16:7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to
your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go
away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I
depart, I will send it to you.
16:8 "And when it has come, it will convict the
world of sin, and of righteousness, and of
16:9 "of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
16:10 "of righteousness, because I go to My
Father and you see Me no more;
16:11 "of judgment, because the ruler of this
world is judged.
16:12 "I still have many things to say to you, but
you cannot bear them now.
16:13 "However, when it, His Spirit of truth, has
come, it will guide you into all truth; for it will
not speak on its own authority, but whatever it
hears it will speak; and it will tell you things to
16:14 "It will glorify Me, for it will take of what
is Mine and declare it to you.
16:15 "All things that the Father has are Mine.
Therefore I said that it will take of Mine and
declare it to you.
16:16 "A little while, and you will not see Me;
and again a little while, and you will see Me,
because I go to the Father."
16:17 Then some of His disciples said among
themselves, "What is this that He says to us, 'A
little while, and you will not see Me; and again a
little while, and you will see Me'; and, 'because I
go to the Father'?"
16:18 They said therefore, "What is this that He
says, 'A little while'? We do not know what He is
16:19 Now Yah’shua knew that they desired to
ask Him, and He said to them, "Are you
inquiring among yourselves about what I said, 'A
little while, and you will not see Me; and again a
little while, and you will see Me'?
16:20 "Most assuredly, I say to you that you will
weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and
you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be
turned into joy.
16:21 "A woman, when she is in labor, has
sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon
as she has given birth to the child, she no longer
remembers the anguish, for joy that a human
being has been born into the world.
16:22 "Therefore you now have sorrow; but I
will see you again and your heart will rejoice,
and your joy no one will take from you.
16:23 "And in that day you will ask Me nothing.
Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask
the Father in My name He will give you.
16:24 "Until now you have asked nothing in My
name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy
may be full.
16:25 "These things I have spoken to you in
figurative language; but the time is coming when
I will no longer speak to you in figurative
language, but I will tell you plainly about the
16:26 "In that day you will ask in My name, and
I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for
16:27 "for the Father Himself loves you, because
you have loved Me, and have believed that I
came forth from Yahweh.
16:28 "I came forth from the Father and have
come into the world. Again, I leave the world
and go to the Father."
16:29 His disciples said to Him, "See, now You
are speaking plainly, and using no figure of
16:30 "Now we are sure that You know all
things, and have no need that anyone should
question You. By this we believe that You came
forth from Yahweh."
16:31 Yah’shua answered them, "Do you now
16:32 "Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now
come, that you will be scattered, each to his own,
and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone,
because the Father is with Me.
16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, that in
Me you may have peace. In the world you will
have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have
overcome the world."
17:1 Yah’shua spoke these words, lifted up His
eyes to the sky, and said: "Father, the hour has
come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may
17:2 "as You have given Him authority over all
flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many
as You have given Him.
17:3 "And this is eternal life, that they may know
You, the only true God, and Yah’shua the
Messiah whom You have sent.
17:4 "I have glorified You on the earth. I have
finished the work which You have given Me to
17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify Me together
with Yourself, with the glory which I will have
with You before the world will.
17:6 "I have manifested Your name to the men
whom You have given Me out of the world.
They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and
they have kept Your word.
17:7 "Now they have known that all things
which You have given Me are from You.
17:8 "For I have given to them the words which
You have given Me; and they have received
them, and have known surely that I came forth
from You; and they have believed that You sent
17:9 "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world
but for those whom You have given Me, for they

Mine, and I am glorified in them.
17:11 "Now I am no longer in the world, but
these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy
Father, keep through Your name those whom
You have given Me, that they may be one as We

kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave
Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except
the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be
17:13 "But now I come to You, and these things
I speak in the world, that they may have My joy
fulfilled in themselves.
17:14 "I have given them Your word; and the
world has hated them because they are not of the
world, just as I am not of the world.
17:15 "I do not pray that You should take them
out of the world, but that You should keep them
from the evil one.
17:16 "They are not of the world, just as I am not
of the world.
17:17 "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word
17:18 "As You sent Me into the world, I also
have sent them into the world.
17:19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that
they also may be sanctified by the truth.
17:20 "I do not pray for these alone, but also for
those who will believe in Me through their word;
17:21 "that they all may be one, as You, Father,
are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be
one in Us, that the world may believe that You

given them, that they may be one just as We are
17:23 "I in them, and You in Me; that they may
be made perfect in one, and that the world may
know that You have sent Me, and have loved
them as You have loved Me.
17:24 "Father, I desire that they also whom You
gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they
may behold My glory which You have given
Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of
17:25 "O righteous Father! The world has not
known You, but I have known You; and these
have known that You sent Me.
17:26 "And I have declared to them Your name,
and will declare it, that the love with which You
loved Me may be in them, and I in them."
18:1 When Yah’shua had spoken these words,
He went out with His disciples over the Brook
Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and
His disciples entered.
18:2 And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew
the place; for Yah’shua often met there with His
18:3 Then Judas, having received a detachment
of troops, and officers from the chief priests and
Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and
18:4 Yah’shua therefore, knowing all things that
would come upon Him, went forward and said to
them, "Whom are you seeking?"
18:5 They answered Him, "Yah’shua of
Nazareth." Yah’shua said to them, "I am He."
And Judas, who betrayed Him, stood with them.
18:6 Now when He said to them, "I am He," they
drew back and fell to the ground.
18:7 Then He asked them again, "Whom are you
seeking?" And they said, "Yah’shua of
18:8 Yah’shua answered, "I have told you that I
am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go
18:9 that the saying might be fulfilled which He
spoke, "Of those whom You gave Me I have lost
18:10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it
and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off
his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
18:11 So Yah’shua said to Peter, "Put your
sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup
which My Father has given Me?"
18:12 Then the detachment of troops and the
captain and the officers of the Edomites arrested
Yah’shua and bound Him.
18:13 And they led Him away to Annas first, for
he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was
high priest that year.
18:14 Now it was Caiaphas who advised the
Edomites that it was expedient that one man
should die for the people.
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Yah’shua, and
so did another disciple. Now that disciple was
known to the high priest, and went with
Yah’shua into the courtyard of the high priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door outside. Then
the other disciple, who was known to the high
priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the
door, and brought Peter in.
18:17 Then the servant girl who kept the door
said to Peter, "You are not also one of this Man's
disciples, are you?" He said, "I am not."
18:18 Now the servants and officers who had
made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold,
and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood
with them and warmed himself.
18:19 The high priest then asked Yah’shua
about His disciples and His doctrine.
18:20 Yah’shua answered him, "I spoke openly
to the world. I always taught in synagogues and
in the temple, where the Edomites always meet,
and in secret I have said nothing.
18:21 "Why do you ask Me? Ask those who
have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they
know what I said."
18:22 And when He had said these things, one of
the officers who stood by struck Yah’shua with
the palm of his hand, saying, "Do You answer
the high priest like that?"
18:23 Yah’shua answered him, "If I have spoken
evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do
you strike Me?"
18:24 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas
the high priest.
18:25 Now Simon Peter stood and warmed
himself. Therefore they said to him, "You are not
also one of His disciples, are you?" He denied it
and said, "I am not!"
18:26 One of the servants of the high priest, a
relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said,
"Did I not see you in the garden with Him?"
18:27 Peter then denied again; and immediately a
18:28 Then they led Yah’shua from Caiaphas to
the Praetorium, and it was early morning. But
they themselves did not go into the Praetorium,
lest they should be defiled, but that they might
eat the Passover.
18:29 Pilate then went out to them and said,
"What accusation do you bring against this
18:30 They answered and said to him, "If He
were not an evildoer, we would not have
delivered Him up to you."
18:31 Then Pilate said to them, "You take Him
and judge Him according to your law." Therefore
the Edomites said to him, "It is not lawful for us
to put anyone to death,"
18:32 that the saying of Yah’shua might be
fulfilled which He spoke, signifying by what
death He would die.
18:33 Then Pilate entered the Praetorium again,
called Yah’shua, and said to Him, "Are You the
King of the Hebrews?"
18:34 Yah’shua answered him, "Are you
speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell
you this concerning Me?"
18:35 Pilate answered, "Am I a Hebrew? Your
own nation and the chief priests have delivered
You to me. What have You done?"
18:36 Yah’shua answered, "My kingdom is not
of this world. If My kingdom were of this world,
My servants would fight, so that I should not be
delivered to the Edomites; but now My kingdom
is not from here."
18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a
king then?" Yah’shua answered, "You say
rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was
born, and for this cause I have come into the
world, that I should bear witness to the truth.
Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
18:38 Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?" And
when he had said this, he went out again to the
Edomites, and said to them, "I find no fault in
Him at all.
18:39 "But you have a custom that I should
release someone to you at the Passover. Do you
therefore want me to release to you the King of
18:40 Then they cried again, "Not this Man but
Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber.
19:1 Then Pilate took Yah’shua and scourged
19:2 And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns
and put it on His head, and they put on Him a
purple robe to mock Him.
19:3 and said, "Hail, King of the Hebrews!" And
they struck Him with their hands.
19:4 Pilate then went out again, and said to them,
"Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you
may know that I find no fault in Him."
19:5 Then Yah’shua came out, wearing the
crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate
said to them, "Behold the Man!"
19:6 Therefore, when the chief priests and
officers saw Him, they cried out, saying,
"Crucify Him, crucify Him!" Pilate said to them,
"You take Him and crucify Him, for I find no
fault in Him."
19:7 The Edomites answered him, "We have a
law, and according to our law He ought to die,
because He made Himself the Son of Yahweh."
19:8 Therefore, when Pilate heard that saying, he
was the more afraid,
19:9 and went again into the Praetorium, and
said to Yah’shua, "Where are You from?" But
Yah’shua gave him no answer.
19:10 Then Pilate said to Him, "Are You not
speaking to me? Do You not know that I have
power to crucify You, and power to release
19:11 Yah’shua answered, "You could have no
power at all against Me unless it had been given
you from above. Therefore the one who
delivered Me to you has the greater sin."
19:12 From then on Pilate sought to release Him,
but the Edomites cried out, saying, "If you let
this Man go, you are not Caesar's friend.
Whoever makes himself a king speaks against
19:13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying,
he brought Yah’shua out and sat down in the
judgment seat in a place that is called The
Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
19:14 Now it was the Preparation Day of the
Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he said
to the Edomites, "Behold your King!"
19:15 But they cried out, "Away with Him, away
with Him! Crucify Him!" Pilate said to them,
"Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests
answered, "We have no king but Caesar!"
19:16 Then he delivered Him to them to be
crucified. So they took Yah’shua and led Him
19:17 And He, bearing His stake, went out to a
place called the Place of a Skull, which is called
in Hebrew, Golgotha,
19:18 where they crucified Him, and two others,
one on either side, and Yah’shua in the center.
19:19 Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the
stake. And the writing was: YAH’SHUA OF
NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE HEBREWS.
19:20 Then many of the Edomites read this title,
for the place where Yah’shua was crucified was
near the city; and it was written in Hebrew,
Greek, and Latin.
19:21 Therefore the chief priests of the Edomites
said to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The King of the
Hebrews,' but, 'He said, "I am the King of the
Hebrews." ' "
19:22 Pilate answered, "What I have written, I
19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified
Yah’shua, took His garments and made four
parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic.
Now the tunic was without seam, woven from
the top in one piece.
19:24 They said therefore among themselves,
"Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it
shall be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled
"They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots."
Therefore the soldiers did these things.
19:25 Now there stood by the stake of Yah’shua
His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the
wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
19:26 When Yah’shua therefore saw His mother,
and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He
said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
19:27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your
mother!" And from that hour that disciple took
her to his own home.
19:28 After this, Yah’shua, knowing that all
things were now accomplished, that the Scripture
might be fulfilled, said, "I thirst!"
19:29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting
there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine,
put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
19:30 So when Yah’shua had received the sour
wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His
head, He gave up His spirit.
19:31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation
Day, that the bodies should not remain on the
stake on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high
day), the Edomites asked Pilate that their legs be
broken, and that they might be taken away.
19:32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs
of the others who were crucified with Him.
19:33 But when they came to Yah’shua and saw
He was already dead, they did not break His legs.
19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side
with a spear, and immediately blood and water
19:35 And he who has seen has testified, and his
testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling
the truth, so that you may believe.
19:36 For these things were done that the
Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not one of His
bones shall be broken."
19:37 And again another Scripture says, "They
shall look on Him whom they pierced."
19:38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a
disciple of Yah’shua, but secretly, for fear of the
Edomites, asked Pilate that he might take away
His body; and Pilate gave him permission. So he
came and took the body of Yah’shua.
19:39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to
Yah’shua by night, also came, bringing a
mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred
19:40 Then they took the body of Yah’shua, and
bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the
custom of the Edomites is to bury.
19:41 Now in the place where He was crucified
there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb
in which no one had yet been laid.
19:42 So there they laid Yah’shua, because of
the Edomites' Preparation Day, for the tomb was
20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary
Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was
still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken
away from the tomb.
20:2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and
to the other disciple, whom Yah’shua loved, and
said to them, "They have taken away the
Messiah out of the tomb, and we do not know
where they have laid Him."
20:3 Peter therefore went out, and the other
disciple, and were going to the tomb.
20:4 So they both ran together, and the other
disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first.
20:5 And he, stooping down and looking in, saw
the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in.
20:6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and
went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths
20:7 and the handkerchief that had been around
His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but
folded together in a place by itself.
20:8 Then the other disciple, who came to the
tomb first, went in also; and he saw and
20:9 For as yet they did not know the Scripture,
that He must rise again from the dead.
20:10 Then the disciples went away again to
their own homes.
20:11 But Mary stood outside by the tomb
weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and
looked into the tomb.
20:12 And she saw two angels in white sitting,
one at the head and the other at the feet, where
the body of Yah’shua had lain.
20:13 Then they said to her, "Woman, why are
you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they
have taken away my Lord, and I do not know
where they have laid Him."
20:14 Now when she had said this, she turned
around and saw Yah’shua standing there, and did
not know that it was Yah’shua.
20:15 Yah’shua said to her, "Woman, why are
you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She,
supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him,
"Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me
where You have laid Him, and I will take Him
20:16 Yah’shua said to her, "Mary!" She turned
and said to Him, "Rabboni!" (which is to say,
20:17 Yah’shua said to her, "Do not cling to Me,
for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go
to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending
to My Father and your Father, and to My God
and your God.' "
20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the
disciples that she had seen the Messiah, and that
He had spoken these things to her.
20:19 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 Edomites, Yah’shua came and stood in the
midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you."
20:20 When He had said this, He showed them
His hands and His side. Then the disciples were
glad when they saw the Messiah.
20:21 So Yah’shua said to them again, "Peace to
you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
20:22 And when He had said this, He breathed
on them, and said, "Receive His Holy Spirit.
20:23 "If you forgive the sins of any, they are
forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they
20:24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the
twelve, was not with them when Yah’shua came.
20:25 The other disciples therefore said to him,
"We have seen the Messiah." So he said to them,
"Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails,
and put my finger into the print of the nails, and
put my hand into His side, I will not believe."
20:26 And after eight days His disciples were
again inside, and Thomas with them. Yah’shua
came, the doors being shut, and stood in the
midst, and said, "Peace to you!"
20:27 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach your
finger here, and look at My hands; and reach
your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not
be unbelieving, but believing."
20:28 And Thomas answered and said to Him,
"My Lord and my God!"
20:29 Yah’shua said, "Thomas, because you
have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are
those who have not seen and yet have believed."
20:30 And truly Yah’shua did many other signs
in the presence of His disciples, which are not
written in this book;
20:31 but these are written that you may believe
that Yah’shua is the Messiah, the Son of
Yahweh, and that believing you may have life in
21:1 After these things Yah’shua showed
Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of
Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself:
21:2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin,
Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of
Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were
21:3 Simon Peter said to them, "I am going
fishing." They said to him, "We are going with
you also." They went out and immediately got
into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.
21:4 But when the morning had now come,
Yah’shua stood on the shore; yet the disciples
did not know that it was Yah’shua.
21:5 Then Yah’shua said to them, "Children,
have you any food?" They answered Him, "No."
21:6 And He said to them, "Cast the net on the
right side of the boat, and you will find some."
So they cast, and now they were not able to draw
it in because of the multitude of fish.
21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Yah’shua
loved said to Peter, "It is Yah’shua!" Now when
Simon Peter heard that it was the Messiah, he put
on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and
plunged into the sea.
21:8 But the other disciples came in the little
boat (for they were not far from land, but about
two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish.
21:9 Then, as soon as they had come to land,
they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it,
21:10 Yah’shua said to them, "Bring some of the
fish which you have just caught."
21:11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net
to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fiftythree;
and although there were so many, the net
was not broken.
21:12 Yah’shua said to them, "Come and eat
breakfast." Yet none of the disciples dared ask
Him, "Who are You?"-knowing that it was the
21:13 Yah’shua then came and took the bread
and gave it to them, and likewise the fish.
21:14 This is now the third time Yah’shua
showed Himself to His disciples after He was
raised from the dead.
21:15 So when they had eaten breakfast,
Yah’shua said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of
Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He
said to Him,
"Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said
to him, "Feed My lambs."
21:16 He said to him again a second time,
"Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?" He said
to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You."
He said to him, "Tend My sheep."
21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son
of Jonah, do you love Me?" Peter was grieved
because He said to him the third time, "Do you
love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You know
all things; You know that I love You." Yah’shua
said to him, "Feed My sheep.
21:18 "Most assuredly, I say to you, when you
were younger, you girded yourself and walked
where you wished; but when you are old, you
will stretch out your hands, and another will gird
you and carry you where you do not wish."
21:19 This He spoke, signifying by what death
he would glorify Yahweh. And when He had
spoken this, He said to him, "Follow Me."
21:20 Then Peter, turning around, saw the
disciple whom Yah’shua loved following, who
also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and
said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?"
21:21 Peter, seeing him, said to Yah’shua, "But
Lord, what about this man?"
21:22 Yah’shua said to him, "If I will that he
remain till I come, what is that to you? You
21:23 Then this saying went out among the
brethren that this disciple would not die. Yet
Yah’shua did not say to him that he would not
die, but, "If I will that he remain till I come, what
is that to you?"
21:24 This is the disciple who testifies of these
things, and wrote these things; and we know that
his testimony is true.
21:25 And there are also many other things that
Yah’shua did, which if they were written one by
one, I suppose that even the world itself could
not contain the books that would be written.
