JOHN I. 42 And he brought him to Jesus. When Jesus beheld him, he

said ; Thou art Simon, the son of Jona; thou shalt be called 43 Cephas; which is by interpretation, a stone. The

day following he would go forth into Gallilee ; and findeth 44 Philip, and saith unto him; Follow me. Now Philip was of 45 Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth

Nathanael, and saith unto him ; We have found him of whom

Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Naz46 areth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him;

Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth ? Philip 47 saith unto him; Come and see. Jesus saw Nathanael com

ing to him, and saith of him ; Behold an Israelite indeed, in 48 whom is no guile. Nathanael saith unto him ; Whence

knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him ; Be

fore that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig49 tree, I saw thee.

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; Because I said unto

.thee; I saw thee under the fig-tree, believest thou ? thou 51 shalt see greater things than these. And he saith unto him ;

Verily, verily, I say unto you, hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon

the Son of man. 2. And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Gal

and the mother of Jesus was there. And both Jesus 3 was called and his disciples to the marriage. And when

they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him ; 4 They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her; Woman, what 5 have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

His mother saith unto the servants ; Whatsoever he saith unto

do it. And there were set there six water-pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing 7 two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them ; Fill the

water-pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he saith unto them ; Draw out now, and bear unto the 9 governor of the feast. And they bare it.

And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the 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 well drunk, then that

which is worse; but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee,

PART III.

TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF JESUS' PUBLIC MINISTRY IN

GALILEE.

13

JOHN II. And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up 14 to Jerusalem. And he found in the temple those that sold

oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the changers of money, sit15 ting. And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he

drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the

oxen ; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew 16 the tables; and said unto them that sold doves; Take these

things hence; make not my Father's house a house of mer17 chandise. And his disciples remembered that it was writ18 ten; “ The zeal of thy house eateth me up." Then

answered the Jews, and said unto him ; What sign shewest 19 thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things ? Jesus

answered and said unto them; Destroy this temple, and in 20 three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews; Forty

and six years was this temple in building; and wilt thou a rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of 22 his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead,

his disciples remembered that he had said this ; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast-day, many believed in his name, when they saw the 24 miracles which he did. But Jesus did not commit himself 25 unto them, because he knew all men ; and needed not that

any should testify of man; for he knew what was in 3. man. There was a man of the Pharisees, named 2 Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; the same came to him by

night, and said unto him; Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles 3 that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered

and said unto him ; Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except

a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him; How can a man be born when

23

JOHN III. he is old ? can he enter the second time into his mother's 5 womb, and be born? Jesus answered ; Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water, and

of the Spirit, & he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is

born of the flesh, is flesh; and that which is born of the 7 Spirit, is spirit. Varvel not, that I said unto thee; Ye must & be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth; and

thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it corneth, and whither it goeth; so is every one that is born of

the spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him; How 10 can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him ; Art

thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things ? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, we speak that we do know,

and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our wit12 pess. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not; 13 how shall ye believe if I tell you of heavenly things? And

no man hath ascended 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 serpent in the wilderness, even 15 so must the Son of man be lifted up; that whosoever be

lieveth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten

Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but 17 have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the

world to condemn the world, but that the world through him 18 might be saved. He that believeth on him, is not con

demned; but he that believeth not, is condemned already,

because he hath not believed in the name of the only begot19 ten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that

light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather 20 than light; because their deeds were evil. For every one

that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light,

that

MARK II. 1 At that time Jesus went 23 And it came to

pass, on the sabbath-day through he went through the cornthe corn; and his disciples fields on the sabbath-day, were a hungered, and be and his disciples began, as

gan to pluck the ears of they went, to pluck the ears 2 corn, and to eat. But when 24 of corn. And the Pharisees

the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him ; Behold, why said unto him ; Behold, thy do they on the sabbath-day disciples do that which is that which is not lawful ?!

2 lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth

cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judea ; and there he tarried with them, and baptized. 23 And John also was baptizing in Ænon, near to Salim, be

cause there was much water there ; and they came, and 24 were baptized. For John was not yet cast into prison. 25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disci26 ples and a Jew, about purifying. 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 bap27 tizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said ;

A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from 28 heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said ; I am 29 not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. He that hath

the bride, is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly,

because of the bridegroom's voice.' This my joy therefore 30 is fulfilled.

He must increase, but must decrease. 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 32 from heaven is above all, and what he hath seen and heard

that he testifieth ; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33 He that hath received his testimony, hath set to his seal that 34 God is true. For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the

words of God; for God giveth not the Spirit by measure 35 unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all 36 things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath

everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
