Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
2There they made him a supper; and Martha
served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
3Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and
wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray
5Why was not this ointment sold for three
hundred pence, and given to the poor?
he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
7Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
8For the poor always ye have with you; but
me ye have not always.
9Much people of the
Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom
he had raised from the dead.
10But the chief
priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to
13Took branches of palm trees,
and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
15Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
16These things understood not his disciples
at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had
done these things unto him.
17The people therefore
that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
18For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done
19The Pharisees therefore said
among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
20And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
21The same came therefore to Philip, which
was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
22Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
23And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should
24Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
25He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world
shall keep it unto life eternal.
man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
27Now is my soul troubled; and what shall
I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
28Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it,
and will glorify it again.
29The people therefore,
that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
30Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
31Now is the judgment of this world: now shall
the prince of this world be cast out.
I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
he said, signifying what death he should die.
people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be
lifted up? who is this Son of man?
Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you:
for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did
hide himself from them.
37But though he had
done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed
our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart,
and be converted, and I should heal them.
things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should
be put out of the synagogue:
43For they loved
the praise of men more than the praise of God.
cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
46I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide
47And if any man hear my words,
and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him:
the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should
say, and what I should speak.
50And I know
that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
