JOHN XX. to Thomas ; Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands,

and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side ; and 28 be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said 29 unto him ; My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him;

Because thou has seen me, thou hast believed ; blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. And on this wise shewed he him2 self. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas call

ed Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the 3 sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. Simon

Peter saith unto them ; I go a fishing. They say unto him; We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a 4 ship immediately, and that night they caught nothing. But

when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore; 5 but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus

saith unto them ; Children, lave ye any meat? They an6 swered him; No. And he said unto them ; Cast the net on

the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast there

fore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude 7 of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith

unto Peter; It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard

that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him ; for 8 he was naked ; and did cast himself into the sea. And the

other disciples came in a little ship, (for they were not far

from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the o net with fishes. As soon then as they were come to land,

they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and 10 bread. Jesus saith unto them; Bring of the fish which

have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three; and for all there were so many, yet was not the net bro

Jesus saith unto them; Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him ; Who art thou? know13 ing that it was the Lord. Jesus cometh and taketh bread, 14 and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now the third

time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter ; Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?" He saith unto him ; Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee.

16 He saith unto him; Feed my lambs. He saith to him

again the second time ; Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou

me? He saith unto him ; Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I 17 love thee. He saith unto him ; Feed my sheep. He saith

unto him the third time ; Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me ? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time ; Lovest thou me? And he said unto him ; Lord, thou

knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus 18 saith unto him ; Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto

thee, when thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest ; but when thou shalt be old, thou

shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and 19 carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake he, signi

fying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had 20 spoken this, he saith unto him; Follow me. Then Peter

turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved, following;

(which also leaned on bis breast at supper, and said ; Lord, 21 which is he that betrayeth thee ?) Peter seeing him, saith 22 to Jesus; Lord, and what shall this man do ? Jesus saith

unto him ; If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to 23 thee? follow thou me. Then went this saying abroad

among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. Yet Jesus said not unto him ; He shall not die ; but; If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

MATTHEW XXVIII. Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a 17 mountain, where Jesus had appointed them. And when

they saw him, they worshipped him ; but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying ; All power is 19 given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye, and teach all

nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the 20 Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all

things, whatsoever I have commanded you. And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of 31 his disciples, which are not written in this book. "But these

are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.

XXI. 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the

which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.

FACTS AND DISCOURSES, OF UNCERTAIN DATE.

LUKE VII. And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him; and he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to 37 meat. And behold, a woman in the city, which was a sin

ner, when she knew tliat Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's 38 house, brought an alabaster-box of ointment, and stood at his

feet behind him, weeping, and began to wash his feet with

tears; and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and 39 kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Now,

when the Pharisee which had bidden him, saw it, he spake within himself, saying; This man, if he were a prophet,

would have known who, and what manner of woman this is 40 that toucheth him ; for she is a sinner. And Jesus answer

ing said unto him ; Simon, I have somewhat to say unto 41 thee. And he saith ; Master, say on. There was a certain

creditor, which had two debtors; the one owed five hundred 12 pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing

to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, 43 which of them will love him most? Simon answered and

said ; I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he 44 said unto him ; Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned

to the woman, and said unto Simon ; Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house ; thou gavest me no water for my

feet; but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped 45 them with her hair. Thou gavest me no kiss; but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss

my Mine head with oil thou didst not anoint; but this 47 woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I

say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for

46 feet.

48

LUKE VII. she loved much ; but to whom little is forgiven, the same

eth little. And he said unto her; Thy sins are forgiven. 49 And they that sat at meat with him, began to say within 50 themselves; Who is this that forgiveth sins also ? And he

said to the woman ; Thy faith hath saved thee ; go in peace.

And it came to pass, that as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him ; Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them ; When ye pray, say ; Father, hal; lowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; give us day by 4 day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins, for we also

forgive every one that is indebted to us; and lead us not in5 to temptation. And he said unto them; Which of

you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, 6 and say unto him ; Friend, lend me three loaves; for a

friend of mine in his journey has come to me, and I have 7 nothing to set before him ? And he from within shall answer

and say ; Trouble me not; the door is now shut, and my 8 children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I

say unto you, though he will not rise and give him, be

cause he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will 9 rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I

you ; Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall 10 find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; 11 and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. If a son shall

ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone?

or if he ask a fish, will be for a fish give him a 12 serpent? or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scor13 pion ? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts

unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him. And he went in and sat down to meat. 38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not 39 first washed before dinner. And the Lord said unto him ;

Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and

the platter ; but your inward part is full of ravening and 40 wickedness. Ye fools, did not he that made that which is 41 without, make that which is within also ? But rather give

alms of such things as ye have; and behold, all things are clean
