The Gospel According to

S. John

1 aIn the beginning was bthe Word, and the Word was cwith God, and the Word dwas God. The same was in the beginning with God. eAll things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. fIn him was life; and gthe life was the light of men. And hthe light shineth in hdarkness; and the darkness icomprehended it not.

*There was a man jsent from God, whose name was kJohn. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, lthat all men through him might believe. He was not that mLight, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. nThat was the true Light, which lighteth every man othat cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and pthe world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto qhis own, and rhis own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he ||power sto become tthe sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, unot of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but wof God. 14 And xthe Word ywas made flesh, and zdwelt among us, (and we beheld ahis glory, bthe glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) jfull of cgrace and truth. 15 John dbare witness of him, and ecried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, fHe that cometh after me is gpreferred before me: hfor he was ibefore me. 16 And of his jfulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For kthe law was given by Moses, but lgrace and mtruth came by Jesus Christ. 18 nNo man qhath seen God at any time; othe only begotten Son, oowhich is in pthe bosom of the Father, he hath qdeclared him.

19 *And this is rthe record of John, when rrthe Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? 20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, sI am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou tElias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou u||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 xthe voice of one crying in the wilderness, yMake straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. 24 And they which were sent were of the zPharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why zbaptizest thou then, if thou be not that aChrist, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, bI baptize with water: cbut there standeth one damong you, whom ye know not; 27 He it is, who ecoming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s flatchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done gin Bethabara hbeyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold ithe Lamb of God, which j||taketh away the sin of the world. 30 kThis is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was lbefore me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should llbe made manifest to Israel, mtherefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John nbare record, saying, oI saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is phe which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and nbare record that this is qthe Son of God.

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; 36 And xlooking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, rBehold the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, sWhat seek ye? They said unto him, tRabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) 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 hour. 40 uOne of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first findeth vhis own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the wMessias, which is, being interpreted, ||the Christ. 42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus xbeheld him, he said, Thou art ySimon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called zCephas, which is by interpretation, ||A stone.

43 aThe day following Jesus would bgo forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 44 Now cPhilip was of dBethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip findeth eNathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom fMoses in the law, and fthe prophets, did write, Jesus gof Nazareth, hthe son of Joseph. 46 And Nathanael said unto him, iCan 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 jIsraelite indeed, kin whom is no guile! 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, lRabbi, thou art mthe Son of God; thou art nthe King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, obelievest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, pHereafter ye shall see qheaven open, and rthe angels of God ascending and descending upon sthe Son of man.

2 And athe third day there was a marriage in bCana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and chis disciples, to dthe marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, eWoman, fwhat have I to do with thee? gmine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of hthe purifying of the Jews, containing two or three ifirkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When jthe ruler of the feast had tasted kthe water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have lwell drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in bCana of Galilee, and manifested forth mhis glory; and his disciples believed on him.

12 After this nhe went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and ohis brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days. 13 And the Jews’ ppassover was at hand, and Jesus qwent up to Jerusalem, 14 rAnd found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when he had made a scourge of ssmall cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not tmy Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, uThe zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

18 Then answered vthe Jews and said unto him, wWhat sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, xDestroy ythis temple, and in three days zI will raise it up. 20 Then said vthe Jews, Forty and six years awas this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of bthe temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, chis disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed dthe scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw ethe miracles which he did. 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for fhe knew what was in man.

3 There was a man of the Pharisees, named aNicodemus, ba ruler of the Jews: aThe same came to Jesus cby night, and said unto him, dRabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do ethese miracles that thou doest, except fGod be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man gbe born ||hagain, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, hhHow can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of ijwater and of jthe Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. kThat which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. kkMarvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born ||again. lThe wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, mHow can these things be? 10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou na master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and otestify that we have seen; oand ye receive not our witness. 12 pIf I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And qno man hath ascended up to heaven, but rhe that came down from heaven, even the Son of man swhich is in heaven. 14 And tas Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so umust the Son of man wbe lifted up: 15 That xwhosoever believeth in him should not perish, but yhave eternal life. 16
