12 Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethanyo where LazarusB was, the one Jesus had raised from the dead.p 2 Soq they gave a dinner for him there; Marthar was serving them, and Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took a pound of perfume, pure and expensive nard, anointed Jesus’s feet, and wiped his feet with her hair.s So the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4 Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariott (who was about to betray him), said, 5 “Why wasn’t this perfume sold for three hundred denariiC,u and given to the poor?” 6 He didn’t say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief.v He was in charge of the money-bag and would steal part of what was put in it.
9 Then a large crowd of the Jews learned he was there. They came not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, the one he had raised from the dead.y 10 But the chief priests had decided to kill Lazarus also, 11 because he was the reason many of the Jews were deserting themD and believing in Jesus.
14 Jesus found a young donkeyae and sat on it, just as it is written:
15 Do not be afraid,af
Daughter Zion. Look, your King is coming,
16 His disciples did not understand these things at first. However, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about himah and that they had done these things to him.
17 Meanwhile, the crowd, which had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tombai and raised him from the dead, continued to testify.G 18 This is also why the crowd met him, because they heard he had done this sign. 19 Then the Pharisees said to one another, “You see? You’ve accomplished nothing. Look, the world has gone after him!”aj
20 Now some Greeks were among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 So they came to Philip,ak who was from Bethsaidaal in Galilee,am and requested of him, “Sir,an we want to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went and told Andrew;ao then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
23 Jesus replied to them, “The hour has come for the Son of Manap to be glorified. 24 Truly I tell you, unless a grain of wheataq falls to the ground and dies, it remains by itself. But if it dies, it produces much fruit.a 25 The one who loves his life will lose it,b and the one who hatesc his lifed in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me. Where I am, there my servante also will be.f If anyone serves me, the Father will honorg him.
30 Jesus responded, “This voice came, not for me, but for you.m 31 Now is the judgment of this world.n Now the ruler of this worldo will be cast out.p 32 As for me, if I am lifted up* from the earth I will draw all people to myself.”q 33 He said this to indicate what kind of death he was about to die.r
35 Jesus answered, “The light will be with you only a little longer.u Walk while you have the lightv so that darkness doesn’t overtake you.w The one who walks in darkness doesn’t know where he’s going.x 36 While you have the light,y believe in the light so that you may become children of light.” Jesus said this, then went away and hid from them.z
Lord, who has believed our message?
40 He has blindedae their eyes
and hardened their hearts,af
so that they would not see with their eyes
or understand with their hearts,
42 Nevertheless, many did believe in him even among the rulers,aj but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, so that they would not be banned from the synagogue. 43 For they loved human praiseak more than praise from God.al
44 Jesus cried out, “The one who believes in meam believes not in me, but in him who sent me. 45 And the one who sees me sees himan who sent me. 46 I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me would not remain in darkness. 47 If anyone hears my words and doesn’t keepao them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the worldap but to save the world.aq 48 The one who rejects mear and doesn’t receive my sayings has this as his judge:G The word I have spoken will judge him on the last day.as 49 For I have not spoken on my own, but the Fatherat himself who sent me has given me a command to say everything I have said. 50 I know that his command is eternal life.au So the things that I speak, I speak just as the Father has told me.”av
