The Gospel of John, or The GospelJohn (Greekish: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην) is the fourth of the canonical gospels.
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness fathomed it not.
6. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might beleeve. 8. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came unto his own, and his ownhim not. 12. But as many as fanged him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that beleeve on his name: 13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his, the wolder as of the only begotten of the Father,) and trewthful. 15. John bare witness of him, and , saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is my better: for he was before me. 16. And of his fulness have all we reaped, and for eest.
17. For the law was given by Moses, but eest and trewth came by Jesus Christ. 18. No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath seethed him. 19. And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? 20. And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 21. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. 22. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 23. He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
24. And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 25. And they asked him, and said unto him, Whythou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 26. John answered them, saying, I with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 27. He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's buckle I am not worthy to unloose. 28. These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was fullowing.
29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is my better: for he was before me. 31. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come fullowing with water. 32. And John bare witness, saying, I saw the Goast coiming down from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to fullow with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Goast coming down, and remaining on him, the same is he which fullowth with the Holy Ghost. 34. And I saw, and bare witness that this is the Son of God.
35.the next day after John stood, and two of his learningmen; 36. And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! 37. And the two learningmen heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being , ,) where dwellest thou? 39. He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth . 40. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being , the Christ. 42. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by reading, A stone.
43. The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 44. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 46. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. 47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no ! 48. Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 49. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 50. Jesus answered and said unto him, Since I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 51. And he saith unto him, , soothly, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God rising and falling upon the Son of man.
1. And the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2. And both Jesus was called, and his, to the wedding. 3. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine tide is not yet come. 5. His mother saith unto the , Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 6. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the way of the cleansing of the Jews, holding in two or three firkins each. 7. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the lord of the . And they bare it. 9. When the lord of the had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the thews which drew the water knew;) the lord of the called the bridegroom, 10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11. This beginning of did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and shewn forth his glory; and his learningmen beleeved on him.
12. After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his learningmen: and they went forth there not many days.
13. And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14. And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and thesitting: 15. And when he had made a whip of small ropes, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the wharvers' yeeld, and overthrew the tables; 16. And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of wares. 17. And his learningmen called to mind that it was written, The of thine house hath eaten me up. 18. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What token shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19. Jesus answered and said unto them, Fell this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21. But he spake of the temple of his body. 22. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his learningmen called to mind that he had said this unto them; and they beleeved the , and the word which Jesus had said.
23. Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the, many beleeved in his name, when they saw the wonders which he did. 24. But Jesus did not intrust himself unto them, sinse he knew all men, 25. And needed not that any should of man: for he knew what was in man.
1. There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a weelder of the Yudes: 2. The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a learer come from God: for no man can do these wonders that thou doest, save God be with him. 3. Jesus answered and said unto him, Soothly, soothly, I say unto thee, Unless a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5. Jesus answered, Soothly, soothly, I say unto thee, Unless a man be born of water and of the Goast, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Goast is goast. 7. Be not amazed that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the lude thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Goast.
9. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10. Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a learer of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11. Soothly, soothly, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and seethe that we have seen; and ye fang not our witness. 12. If I have told you earthly things, and ye beleeve not, how shall ye beleeve, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13. And no man hath rose up up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14. And as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15. That whosoever beleeveth in him should not die, but have everlasting life. 16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever beleeveth in him should not die, but have everlasting life. 17. For God sent not his Son into the world to doom the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18. He that believeth on him is not doomed: but he that beleeveth not is doomed already, sinse he hath not beleeved in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19. And this is the ground for dooming, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, sinse their deeds were evil. 20. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light , neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be unheeled. 21. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be shewn, that they are wrought in God.
22. After these things came Jesus and his learningmen into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and fullowed. 23. And John also was fullowing in Aenon near to Salim, sinse there was much water there: and they came, and were fullowed. 24. For John was not yet cast into cwartern.
25. Then there arose an ask between some of John's learningmen and the Yudes about cleansing. 26. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same fulloweth, and all men come to him. 27. John answered and said, A man can fang nothing, unless it be given him from heaven. 28. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, gleweth greatly owing to the bridegroom's voice: this my glee therefore is fulfilled. 30. He must wax, but I must wane.
31. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32. And what he hath seen and heard, that he seetheth; and no man fangeth his witness. 33. He that hath fanged his witness hath set to his seal that God is true. 34. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth the Goast unfettered unto him. 35. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36. He that beleeveth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that beleeveth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
1. When Jesus had said these things, he went forth with his learningmen over the brook Cedron, where there was a garden, which he went into with his learningmen. 2. And Judas also, who swiked him, knew the stead; forthat Jesus had often come there together with his learningmen. 3. Judas therefore having underfanged a band of heremen and thains from the headpriests and the Pharisees, came there with lightvats and torches and weapons. 4. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said to them: Whom do you seek? 5. They answered him: Jesu of Nazareth. Jesus said to them: I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them. 6. As soon therefore as he had said to them: I am he; they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7. Again therefore he asked them: Whom do you seek? And they said, Jesu of Nazareth. 8. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way. 9. That the word might be fulfilled which he said: Of them whom you have given me, I have not lost any one. 10. Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and struck the thain of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the thain was Malchus.
11. Jesus therefore said to Peter: Put up your sword into its sheath. The cup which my Father has given me, shall I not drink it? 12. Then the band and the elder, and the Jews' thanes took Jesu and bound him: 13. And they led him away to Annas first, for he was the father in law to Caiphas who was the high priest of that year. 14. Now Caiphas was he who had given the rede to the Jews: That it was better that one man should die for the folk. 15. And Simon Peter followed Jesu, and so did another learningman. And that learningman was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesu into the hall of the bishop. 16.But Peter stood at the door without. The other learningman therefore, who was known to the high priest, went out, and spoke to the woman that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17. The maid therefore that was keeping the door, said to Peter: Are you not also one of this man's learningmen? He said: I am not. 18. Now the thanes and aldermen stood at a fire of coals, forthat it was cold, and warmed themselves. and with them was Peter also, standing, and warming himself. 19. The high priest therefore asked Jesu of his learningmen, and of his lore.
20. Jesus answered him: I have spoken openly to the world: I have always taught in the samming, and in the harrows, where all the Jews come together; and I have spoken nothing diley. 21. “Why do you ask me? ask them who hace heard what I have spoken unto them: behold they know what things I have said. 22. And when he had said these things, one of the thains standing by, gave Jesu a blow, saying: Do you answer the high priest so? 23. Jesus answered him: If I have spoken evil, kithe witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike me? 24. And Anas sent him bound to Caiphas the high priest. 25. And Simon Peter was standing, and warming himself. They said therefore to him: Aren't you one of his learningmen? He withsaked it, and said: I am not. 26. One of the thains of the high priest (a kinsman to him whose ear Peter cut off) said to him: Did I not see you in the garden with him? 27. Again therefore Peter withsaked; and straightaway the cock crew. 28. Then they led Jesu from Caiphas to the wieldend's hall, that they might not be besmitten, but that they might eat their eastermeal (pasch). 29. Pilate therefore went out to them, and said: What wroot do you bring against this man? 30. They answered, and said to him: If he were not an misdoer, we would not have brought him to you.
31. Pilate therefore said to them: You take him, and deem him after your law. The Jews therefore said to him: It is not lawful for us to put any man to death; 32. That the word of Jesu might be fulfilled, which he said, swuttling what death he should die. 33. Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called Jesu, and said to him: Are you the king of the Jews? 34. Jesus answered: Do you say this thing of yourself, or have others told you it of me? 35. Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Your own thede, and the headpriests have given you up to me: what have you done? 36. Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my thanes would wittedly strive that I should not be given over to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from here. 37. Pilate therefore said to him: Are you a king then? Jesus answered: You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world; that I should kithe witness to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth, hears my steven. 38. Pilate said to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them: I find no guilt in him. 39. But you have a wone that I should free someone for you at Easter; do you wish then that I free for you the King of the Jews?” 40. So they cried out again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas.” Now Barabbas was a robber.
1. Pilate then took Jesu and flogged him. 2. And the heremen twisted together a kinhelm and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple robe; 3. and they began to come up to him and say, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and to give him blows with their hands. 4. Pilate came out again and said to them, “Behold, I am bringing him out to you so that you may know that I find no guilt in him.” 5. Jesus then came out, wearing the kinhelm of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!” 6. So when the chief priests and the thanes saw him, they cried out saying, “Roodfasten him! Roodfasten him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and roodfasten him, for I find no guilt in him.” 7. The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and by that law he ought to die forthat he made himself out to be the Son of God.” 8. Therefore when Pilate heard this saying, he was even more afraid; 9. And went again into the doomhall, and said to Jesu, “Where are you from?” But Jesus gave him no answer. 10. So Pilate said to him, “You do not speak to me? Do you not know that I have anwield to free you, and I have might to roodfasten you?
11. Jesus answered, “You would have no might over me, unless it had been given you from above; therefore he that betook me to you has the greater sin.” 12. And from thenceforth Plate sought to forlet him: but the Jews cried out, saying, “If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself out to be a king speaks against Caesar.” 13. Therefore when Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesu out, and sat down on the doomseat at a stow called the Waydeck, but in Hebreish, Gabbaha. 14. Now it was the day of foregraithing for Easter, and about the sixth hour: and he said to the Jews, “Behold your king!” 15. So they cried out, “Away with him, away with him, berood him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I roodfasten your king?” The headpriests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” 16. So then he handed him over to them to be roodfastened. 17. They took Jesu, therefore, and he went out, bearing his own rood, to the stow called Skullstead, which is called in Hebreish, Golgotha. 18. There they roodfastened him, and with him two other men, one on either side, and Jesu in between. 19. Pilate also wrote an overwrit and put it on the rood. It was written, “Jesus the Nazarene, the King of the Jews.” 20. Therefore many of the Jews read this overwrit, for the stow where Jesus was roodfastened was near the borough; and it was in written in Hebreish, Latin, and in Greekish.
21. So the headpriests of the Jews were saying to Pilate, “Do not write, 'The King of the Jews'; but that he said, 'I am King of the Jews.'” 22. Pilate answered, “What I have written I have have written.” 23. Then the heremen, when they had roodfastened Jesu, took his outer clothes and made four deals, a deal to every hereman and also the coat; now the coat was seamless, woven in one snead. 24. So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to choose whose it shall be”; this was to fulfill the Holy Writ: “They todealt my outer clothes among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” 25. Therefore the heremen did these things. But standing by the rood of Jesu were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26. When Jesus saw his mother, and the learningman whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27. Then he said to the learningman, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the learningman took her into his own household. 28. After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been ended, to fulfill the Holy Writ, said, “I am thirsty.” 29. A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to his mouth. 30. Therefore when Jesus had fanged the sour wine, he said, “It is ended!” And he bowed his head and gave up the ghost.
31. Then the Jews, forthat it was the foregraithingday, so that the bodies would not abide on the rood on Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked 32. Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 33. So the heremen came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was roodfastened with him; but coming to Jesu, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34. But one hereman opened his side with a spear, and straightaway blood and water came out. 35. And he who has seen has kithed witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. 36. For these things were done to fulfill the Holy Writ, “Not a bone of him shall be broken.” 37. And again another Holy Writ says, “They shall look on him whom they throughfastened.” 38. After these things Joseph of Arimathea, being a learningman of Jesu, but in dern for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesu; and Pilate gave leave. So he came and took away his body. 39. Nicodemus, who had first come to him by night, also came, bringing a mix of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds weight. 40. So they took the body of Jesu and bound it in linen wrappings with the worts as is the burying thew of the Jews. 41. Now in the stow where he was roodfastened there was a garden, and in the garden a new berghing in which no-one had yet been laid. 42. There they laid Jesu therefore, forthat it was the foregraithingday, for the berghing was nigh at hand.
