(Luke 18:1) Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, (Lk 18:2) saying, “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God, and did not respect man. (Lk 18:3) “And there was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ (Lk 18:4) “And for a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, (Lk 18:5) yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, lest by continually coming she wear me out.'” (Lk 18:6) And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge said; (Lk 18:7) now shall not God bring about justice for His elect, who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? (Lk 18:8) “I tell you that He will bring about justice for them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
(Lk 18:9) And He also told this parable to certain ones who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: (Lk 18:10) “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-gatherer. (Lk 18:11) “The Pharisee stood and was praying thus to himself, ‘God, I thank Thee that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax-gatherer. (Lk 18:12) ‘I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’ (Lk 18:13) “But the tax-gatherer, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’ (Lk 18:14) “I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, but he who humbles himself shall be exalted.”
(Lk 18:15) And they were bringing even their babies to Him so that He might touch them, lay His hands on them and pray, but when the disciples saw it, they began rebuking them. (Lk 18:16) But Jesus called for them, saying, “Let the children alone. permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. (Lk 18:17) “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all.” (Mk 10:16) And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands upon them. (Mt 19:15) And after laying His hands on them, He departed from there. (Mt 19:13-14) (Mk 10:13-15)
(Lk 18:18) And as He was setting out on a journey, a certain ruler ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and questioned Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Lk 18:19) And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone, but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” (Lk 18:20) He said to Him, “Which ones?” “You know the commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and mother, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mt 19:16-19) (Mk 10:17-19)
(Lk 18:21) And he said, “All these things I have kept from my youth; what am I still lacking?” (Lk 18:22) And when Jesus heard this, He felt a love for him, and He said to him, “If you wish to be complete, one thing you still lack; sell all that you possess, and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” (Lk 18:23) But when the young man had heard these things, he became very sad and grieved and his face fell; for he was extremely rich, owning much property. (Mt 19:20-22) (Mk 10:20-22)
(Lk 18:24) And Jesus looked at him and to his disciples and said, “How hard it is for those who are wealthy and rich to enter the kingdom of God! (Mk 10:24) And the disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! (Lk 18:25) “For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mt 19:23-24) (Mk 10:23, 25)
(Lk 18:26) And the disciples heard it they were very astonished and said, “Then who can be saved?” (Lk 18:27) But He said, “The things impossible with men, are not with God; for all things are possible with God.” (Lk 18:28) And Peter said, “Behold, we have left our own homes and everything, and followed You.” (Mt 19:28) And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Lk 18:29) And He said to them, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children or farms, for the sake of the kingdom of God, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, (Lk 18:30) who shall not receive a hundred times as much at this time, along with persecutions, and in the age to come, eternal life.” (Mt 19:25-29) (Mk 10:26-31)
(Mt 19:30) “But many who are first will be last; and the last, first. (Mt 20:1) “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. (Mt 20:2) “And when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius for the day, he sent them into his vineyard. (Mt 20:3) “And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the market place; (Mt 20:4) and to those he said, ‘You too go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ And so they went. (Mt 20:5) “Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did the same thing. (Mt 20:6) “And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing; and he said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day long?’ (Mt 20:7) “They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You too go into the vineyard.’ (Mk 10:31)
(Mt 20:8) “And when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last group to the first.’ (Mt 20:9) “And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each one received a denarius. (Mt 20:10) “And when those hired first came, they thought that they would receive more; and they also received each one a denarius. (Mt 20:11) “And when they received it, they grumbled at the landowner, (Mt 20:12) saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the scorching heat of the day.’
(Mt 20:13) “But he answered and said to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for a denarius? (Mt 20:14) ‘Take what is yours and go your way, but I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. (Mt 20:15) ‘Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or is your eye envious because I am generous?’ (Mt 20:16) “Thus the last shall be first, and the first last.”
(Lk 18:31) And as Jesus was about to go up to Jerusalem, and they were on the road, and Jesus was walking on ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who followed were fearful. And He took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things which are written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished. (Lk 18:32) “For the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and He will be delivered to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and mistreated and spit upon, (Lk 18:33) and after they have scourged Him, they will crucify Him; and the third day He will rise again.” (Lk 18:34) And they understood none of these things, and this saying was hidden from them, and they did not comprehend the things that were said. (Mt 20:17-19) (Mk 10:32-34)
(Mt 20:20) Then the mother of the two sons of Zebedee came to Him with her sons, James and John, bowing down, and making a request of Him. “Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask of You.” (Mt 20:21) And He said to her, “What do you wish?” She said to Him, “Command that in Your glory and kingdom these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left.” (Mt 20:22) But Jesus answered and said, “You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” They said to Him, “We are able.” (Mt 20:23) He said to them, “My cup you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized, but to sit on My right and on My left, this is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father.” (Mt 20:24) And hearing this, the ten became indignant with James and John. (Mk 10:35-41)
(Mt 20:25) But Jesus called them to Himself, and said, “You know that those who are recognized as the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. (Mt 20:26) “But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, (Mt 20:27) and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; (Mt 20:28) just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mk 10:42-45)
(Lk 18:35) And it came about that as He was approaching Jericho, a certain blind man named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road, begging. (Lk 18:36) Now hearing a multitude going by, he began to inquire what this might be. (Lk 18:37) And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. (Lk 18:38) And he called out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Lk 18:39) And those who led the way were sternly telling him to be quiet; but he kept crying out all the more, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me!” (Mt 20:29-31) (Mk 10:46-48)
(Lk 18:40) And Jesus stopped and commanded that he be brought to Him. They called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage, arise! He is calling for you;” And casting aside his cloak, he jumped up, and came to Jesus. When he had come near, He questioned him, (Lk 18:41) “What do you want Me to do for you?” And he said, “Lord, Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!” (Lk 18:42) And Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.” (Lk 18:43) And moved with compassion, Jesus touched his eyes, and immediately he regained his sight, and began following Him, glorifying God; and when all the people saw it, they gave praise to God. (Mt 20:32-34) (Mk 10:49-52)
(Luke 19:1) And He entered and was passing through Jericho. (Lk 19:2) And behold, there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; and he was a chief tax-gatherer, and he was rich. (Lk 19:3) And he was trying to see who Jesus was, and he was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. (Lk 19:4) And he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. (Lk 19:5) And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” (Lk 19:6) And he hurried and came down, and received Him gladly.
(Lk 19:7) And when they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” (Lk 19:8) And Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much.” (Lk 19:9) And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham. (Lk 19:10) “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
(Lk 19:11) And while they were listening to these things, He went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. (Lk 19:12) He said therefore, “A certain nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return. (Lk 19:13) “And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’ (Lk 19:14) “But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’ (Lk 19:15) “And it came about that when he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him in order that he might know what business they had done.
(Lk 19:16) “And the first appeared, saying, ‘Master, your mina has made ten minas more.’ (Lk 19:17) “And he said to him, ‘Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, be in authority over ten cities.’ (Lk 19:18) “And the second came, saying, ‘Your mina, master, has made five minas.’ (Lk 19:19) “And he said to him also, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’ (Lk 19:20) “And another came, saying, ‘Master, behold your mina, which I kept put away in a handkerchief; (Lk 19:21) for I was afraid of you, because you are an exacting man; you take up what you did not lay down, and reap what you did not sow.’
(Lk 19:22) “He said to him, ‘By your own words I will judge you, you worthless slave. Did you know that I am an exacting man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow? (Lk 19:23) ‘Then why did you not put the money in the bank, and having come, I would have collected it with interest?’ (Lk 19:24) “And he said to the bystanders, ‘Take the mina away from him, and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’ (Lk 19:25) “And they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas already.’ (Lk 19:26) “I tell you, that to everyone who has shall more be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. (Lk 19:27) “But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.”
(Lk 19:28) And after He had said these things, He was going on ahead, ascending to Jerusalem. (Jn 11:1) Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. (Jn 11:2) And it was the Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. (Jn 11:3) The sisters therefore sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” (Jn 11:4) But when Jesus heard it, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by it.” (Jn 11:5) Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. (Jn 11:6) When therefore He heard that he was sick, He stayed then two days longer in the place where He was.
(Jn 11:7) Then after this He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” (Jn 11:8) The disciples said to Him, “Rabbi, the Jews were just now seeking to stone You, and are You going there again?” (Jn 11:9) Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. (Jn 11:10) “But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” (Jn 11:11) This He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, that I may awaken him out of sleep.” (Jn 11:12) The disciples therefore said to Him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.” (Jn 11:13) Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that He was speaking of literal sleep. (Jn 11:14) Then Jesus therefore said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, (Jn 11:15) and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe; but let us go to him.” (Jn 11:16) Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him.”
(Jn 11:17) So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days. (Jn 11:18) Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off; (Jn 11:19) and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother. (Jn 11:20) Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him; but Mary still sat in the house. (Jn 11:21) Martha therefore said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. (Jn 11:22) “Even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.”
(Jn 11:23) Jesus said to her, “Your brother shall rise again.” (Jn 11:24) Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” (Jn 11:25) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, (Jn 11:26) and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (Jn 11:27) She said to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are the Christ, the Son of God, even He who comes into the world.”
(Jn 11:28) And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister, saying secretly, “The Teacher is here, and is calling for you.” (Jn 11:29) And when she heard it, she arose quickly, and was coming to Him. (Jn 11:30) Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met Him. (Jn 11:31) The Jews then who were with her in the house, and consoling her, when they saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there.
(Jn 11:32) Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” (Jn 11:33) When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her, also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit, and was troubled, (Jn 11:34) and said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” (Jn 11:35) Jesus wept. (Jn 11:36) And so the Jews were saying, “Behold how He loved him!”
(Jn 11:37) But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of him who was blind, have kept this man also from dying?” (Jn 11:38) Jesus therefore again being deeply moved within, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. (Jn 11:39) Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days.” (Jn 11:40) Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
(Jn 11:41) And so they removed the stone. And Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank Thee that Thou heardest Me. (Jn 11:42) “And I knew that Thou hearest Me always; but because of the people standing around I said it, that they may believe that Thou didst send Me.” (Jn 11:43) And when He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” (Jn 11:44) He who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings; and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” (Jn 11:45) Many therefore of the Jews, who had come to Mary and beheld what He had done, believed in Him.
(Jn 11:46) But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which Jesus had done. (Jn 11:47) Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees convened a council, and were saying, “What are we doing? For this man is performing many signs. (Jn 11:48) “If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.”
(Jn 11:49) But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all, (Jn 11:50) nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation should not perish.” (Jn 11:51) Now this he did not say on his own initiative; but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, (Jn 11:52) and not for the nation only, but that He might also gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. (Jn 11:53) So from that day on they planned together to kill Him.
(Jn 11:54) Jesus therefore no longer continued to walk publicly among the Jews, but went away from there to the country near the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim; and there He stayed with the disciples. (Jn 11:55) Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover, to purify themselves. (Jn 11:56) Therefore they were seeking for Jesus, and were saying to one another, as they stood in the temple, “What do you think; that He will not come to the feast at all?” (Jn 11:57) Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he should report it, that they might seize Him.
(Lk 19:29) And it came about that when He approached Bethphage and Bethany, near Jerusalem and the mount that is called Olivet, He sent two of the disciples, (Lk 19:30) saying, “Go into the village opposite you, in which as you enter you will find a colt of a donkey tied, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it, and bring it here. (Lk 19:31) “And if anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ thus shall you speak, ‘The Lord has need of it,’ and immediately he will send it back here.” (Mt 21:1-3) (Mk 11:1-3)
(Mt 21:4) Now this took place that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, (Mt 21:5) “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold your King is coming to you, gentle, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.'”
(Lk 19:32) And those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. (Lk 19:33) And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” (Lk 19:34) And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” And they gave them permission. (Mt 21:6) (Mk 11:4-6)
(Lk 19:35) And they brought it to Jesus, and they threw their garments on the colt, and put Jesus on it, as it is written, (Jn 12:15) “Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” (Jn 12:12) On the next day the great multitude who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, (Lk 19:36) And as He was going, they were spreading their garments in the road; and others were cutting leafy branches from the trees and spreading them in the road. (Mt 21:7-8) (Mk 11:7-8) (Jn 12:14)
(Lk 19:37) And as He was now approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, (Lk 19:38) saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” (Mt 21:9) (Mk 11:9-10) (Jn 12:13)
(Lk 19:39) And some of the Pharisees in the multitude said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” (Lk 19:40) And He answered and said, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”
(Lk 19:41) And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it, (Lk 19:42) saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. (Lk 19:43) “For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side, (Lk 19:44) and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”
(Jn 12:16) These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him. (Jn 12:17) And so the multitude who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, were bearing Him witness. (Jn 12:18) For this cause also the multitude went and met Him, because they heard that He had performed this sign. (Jn 12:19) The Pharisees therefore said to one another, “You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him.” (Mt 21:10) And when He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, “Who is this?” (Mk 11:11) And He entered Jerusalem and came into the temple; and after looking all around, He departed for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late. (Mt 21:11) And the multitudes were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.”
(Lk 19:45) And the next day He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves; (Mk 11:16) and He would not permit anyone to carry goods through the temple. (Lk 19:46) saying to them, “It is written, ‘And My house shall be a house of prayer for all the nations’ but you have made it a robbers’ den.” (Mt 21:12-13) (Mk 11:15,17)
(Mt 21:14) And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. (Mt 21:15) But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became indignant, (Mt 21:16) and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast prepared praise for Thyself’?”
(Lk 19:47) And He was teaching daily in the temple; but the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him, for they were afraid of Him (Lk 19:48) and they could not find anything that they might do, for all the people were hanging upon His words and astonished at His teaching. (Mt 21:17) And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and lodged there. (Mk 11:18-19)
(Mk 11:12) And on the next day, when they had departed from Bethany, He became hungry. (Mk 11:13) And seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. (Mk 11:14) And He answered and said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening. (Mk 11:20) And as they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up. (Mk 11:21) And being reminded, Peter said to Him, “Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered.”
(Mk 11:22) And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. (Mk 11:23) “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him. (Mt 21:18-21)
(Mt 21:22) “And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” (Mk 11:24) “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you. (Mk 11:25) “And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions. (Mk 11:26) [“But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”]
(Luke 20:1) And it came about on one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him, (Lk 20:2) and they spoke, saying to Him, “Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?” (Mt 21:23) (Mk 11:28)
(Lk 20:3) And He answered and said to them, “I shall also ask you a question, and which if you tell Me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things: (Lk 20:4) “Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men?” (Mt 21:24-25) (Mk 11:29-30)
(Lk 20:5) And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Why did you not believe him?’ (Lk 20:6) “But if we say, ‘From men,’ all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.” (Lk 20:7) And they answered that they did not know where it came from. (Lk 20:8) And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.” (Mt 21:26-27) (Mk 11:31-33)
(Mt 21:28) “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in the vineyard.’ (Mt 21:29) “And he answered and said, ‘I will, sir’; and he did not go. (Mt 21:30) “And he came to the second and said the same thing. But he answered and said, ‘I will not’; yet he afterward regretted it and went. (Mt 21:31) “Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The latter.” Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you that the tax-gatherers and harlots will get into the kingdom of God before you. (Mt 21:32) “For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him; but the tax-gatherers and harlots did believe him; and you, seeing this, did not even feel remorse afterward so as to believe him.
(Lk 20:9) And He began to tell the people this parable: “A landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower and rented it out to vine-growers, and went on a journey for a long time. (Lk 20:10) “And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order that they might give him some of the produce of the vineyard; but the vine-growers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. (Lk 20:11) “And he proceeded to send another slave; and they beat him also and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. (Lk 20:12) “And he proceeded to send a third; and this one also they wounded and cast out. (Mk 12:5) “And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some, and killing others. (Mt 21:33-35) (Mk 12:1-4)
(Lk 20:13) “And the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.’ (Lk 20:14) “But when the vine-growers saw him, they reasoned with one another, saying, ‘This is the heir; let us kill him that the inheritance may be ours.’ (Lk 20:15) “And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What, therefore, will the owner of the vineyard do to them? (Lk 20:16) “He will come and destroy these vine-growers and will give the vineyard to others.” And when they heard it, they said, “May it never be!”(Mt 21:37-41) (Mk 12:6-8)
(Lk 20:17) But He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written in the Scriptures, ‘The stone which the builders rejected, this became the chief corner stone, this came about from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? (Lk 20:18) “Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.” (Mt 21:43) “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it. (Mt 21:42, 44) (Mk 12:10-11)
(Lk 20:19) And the scribes and the chief priests tried to lay hands on Him that very hour, and they feared the people; for they understood that He spoke this parable against them. (Mt 21:46) And when they sought to seize Him, they feared the multitudes, because they held Him to be a prophet. (Mt 21:45) (Mk 12:12)
(Mt 22:1) And Jesus answered and spoke to them again in parables, saying, (Mt 22:2) “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king, who gave a wedding feast for his son. (Mt 22:3) “And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. (Mt 22:4) “Again he sent out other slaves saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.”‘ (Mt 22:5) “But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, (Mt 22:6) and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them. (Mt 22:7) “But the king was enraged and sent his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and set their city on fire.
(Mt 22:8) “Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. (Mt 22:9) ‘Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.’ (Mt 22:10) “And those slaves went out into the streets, and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests.
(Mt 22:11) “But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw there a man not dressed in wedding clothes, (Mt 22:12) and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And he was speechless. (Mt 22:13) “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ (Mt 22:14) “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
(Lk 20:20) And they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor. (Lk 20:21) And they questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial to any, and defer to no one, but teach the way of God in truth. (Lk 20:22) “Is it lawful for us to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?” (Lk 20:23) But He detected their malice and trickery and said to them, “Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? (Lk 20:24) “Show Me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” And they said, “Caesar’s.” (Lk 20:25) And He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” (Lk 20:26) And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and marveling at His answer, they became silent, and leaving Him, they went away. (Mt 22:15-22) (Mk 12:13-17)
(Lk 20:27) Now there came to Him some of the Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection), (Lk 20:28) and they questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, having a wife, and he is childless, his brother as next of kin should take the wife and raise up offspring to his brother. (Lk 20:29) “Now there were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died childless; (Lk 20:30) and the second (Lk 20:31) and the third took her; and in the same way all seven died, leaving no children. (Lk 20:32) “Finally the woman died also. (Lk 20:33) “In the resurrection when they rise again therefore, which one’s wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife.” (Mt 22:23-28) (Mk 12:18-23)
(Mt 22:29) But Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures, or the power of God. (Lk 20:34) And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, (Lk 20:35) but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage; (Lk 20:36) for neither can they die anymore, for they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. (Lk 20:37) “But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. (Lk 20:38) “Now He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to Him. You are greatly mistaken.” (Mt 22:30-32) (Mk 12:24-27)
(Lk 20:39) And some of the scribes answered and said, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” (Lk 20:40) For they did not have courage to question Him any longer about anything. (Mt 22:33) And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching. (Mt 22:34) But when the Pharisees heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they gathered themselves together. (Mt 22:35) And one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, (Mt 22:36) “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” (Mk 12:28)
(Mk 12:29) Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; (Mt 22:37) And He said to him,”‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ (Mt 22:38) “This is the great and foremost commandment. (Mt 22:39) “The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mt 22:40) “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” (Mk 12:30-31)
(Mk 12:32) And the scribe said to Him, “Right, Teacher, you have truly stated that He is One; and there is no one else besides Him; (Mk 12:33) and to love Him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as himself, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (Mk 12:34) And when Jesus saw that he had answered intelligently, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that, no one would venture to ask Him any more questions.
(Mt 22:41) Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, (Mt 22:42) saying, “What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?” They said to Him, “The son of David.” (Lk 20:41) And He said to them, “How is it that they say the Christ is David’s son? (Lk 20:42) “For David himself in the Holy Spirit, says in the book of Psalms, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, (Lk 20:43) Until I make Thine enemies a footstool for Thy feet.” (Lk 20:44) “David therefore calls Him ‘Lord,’ and how is He his son?” And the great crowd enjoyed listening to Him. (Mt 22:46) And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question. (Mt 22:43-45) (Mk 12:35-37)
(Mk 12:38) And in His teaching He was saying: “Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful greetings in the market places, (Mk 12:39) and chief seats in the synagogues, and places of honor at banquets, (Mk 12:40) who devour widows’ houses, and for appearance’s sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation.”
(Lk 20:45) And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples, (Mt 23:1) Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, (Mt 23:2) saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; (Mt 23:3) therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things, and do not do them. (Mt 23:4) “And they tie up heavy loads, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. (Mt 23:5) “But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries, and lengthen the tassels of their garments. (Mt 23:6) “And they love the place of honor at banquets, and the chief seats in the synagogues, (Mt 23:7) and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called by men, Rabbi.
(Lk 20:46) “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love respectful greetings in the market places, and chief seats in the synagogues, and places of honor at banquets, (Lk 20:47) who devour widows’ houses, and for appearance’s sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation.”
(Luke 21:1) And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and many rich people were putting in large sums. (Lk 21:2) And He saw a certain poor widow putting in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. (Lk 21:3) And He said, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; (Lk 21:4) for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on.” (Mk 12:41-44)
(Mt 23:8) “But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. (Mt 23:9) “And do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. (Mt 23:10) “And do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. (Mt 23:11) “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. (Mt 23:12) “And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
(Lk 21:5) And while some were talking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and votive gifts, He said, (Lk 21:6) “As for these things which you are looking at, the days will come in which there will not be left one stone upon another which will not be torn down.” (Mt 24:1-2) (Mk 13:1-2)
(Lk 21:7) And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and they questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what will be the sign when these things are about to take place and of the end of the age?” (Mt 24:3) (Mk 13:3-4)
(Lk 21:8) And He said, “See to it that you be not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ ‘I am the Christ,’ and, ‘The time is at hand’; do not go after them. (Lk 21:9) “And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.” (Lk 21:10) Then He continued by saying to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, (Lk 21:11) and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. (Lk 21:12) “But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, and you will be flogged, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, to tribulation, and will kill you, bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. (Lk 21:13) “It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony. (Lk 21:14) “Do not be anxious beforehand about what you are to say. So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; (Lk 21:15) for through the Holy Spirit I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. (Lk 21:16) “But you will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death, (Mt 24:4-10) (Mk 13:5-9, 11-12)
(Mt 24:11) “And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many. (Mt 24:12) “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. (Lk 21:17) and you will be hated by all on account of My name. (Lk 21:18) “Yet not a hair of your head will perish. (Lk 21:19) “By your endurance you will gain your lives and be saved. (Mt 24:14) “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come. (Mt 24:13) (Mk 13:10, 13)
(Lk 21:20) “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is at hand. (Mt 24:15) “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place where it should not be (let the reader understand), (Lk 21:21) “Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of the city depart, and let not those who are in the country enter the city; (Lk 21:22) because these are days of vengeance, in order that all things which are written may be fulfilled. (Mt 24:16) (Mk 13:14)
(Mt 24:17) Let him who is on the housetop not go down to get the things out that are in his house; (Mt 24:18) and let him who is in the field not turn back to get his cloak. (Mt 24:19) “But woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse babes in those days! (Mt 24:20) “But pray that your flight may not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath; (Lk 21:23) “Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse babes in those days; for there will be great distress upon the land, and wrath to this people, (Lk 21:24) and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Mt 24:21) for then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created, until now, nor ever shall. (Mt 24:22) “And unless those days had been cut short by the Lord, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect whom He chose, those days shall be cut short. (Mk 13:15-20)
(Lk 21:25) “But immediately after the tribulation of those days, there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, as the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky and upon the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, (Lk 21:26) men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. (Lk 21:27) “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. (Mt 24:31) “And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other, from the farthest end of the earth, to the farthest end of heaven. (Lk 21:28) “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Mt 24:29-30) (Mk 13:24-27)
(Lk 21:29) And He told them a parable from the fig tree: “Behold the fig tree and all the trees; (Lk 21:30) when its branch has already become tender, and as soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is now near. (Lk 21:31) “Even so you, too, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near, that He is near, right at the door. (Lk 21:32) “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place. (Mt 24:32-34) (Mk 13:28-30)
(Lk 21:33) “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. (Lk 21:34) “Be on guard, that your hearts may not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day come on you suddenly like a trap; (Lk 21:35) for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. (Lk 21:36) “But keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Mt 24:43) “But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. (Mt 24:44) “For this reason you be ready too; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. (Mt 24:35) (Mk 13:31)
(Mt 24:45) “Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? (Mt 24:46) “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. (Mt 24:47) “Truly I say to you, that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. (Mt 24:48) “But if that evil slave says in his heart, ‘My master is not coming for a long time,’ (Mt 24:49) and shall begin to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; (Mt 24:50) the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, (Mt 24:51) and shall cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; weeping shall be there and the gnashing of teeth.
(Mt 25:1) “Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went out to meet the bridegroom. (Mt 25:2) “And five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. (Mt 25:3) “For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, (Mt 25:4) but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. (Mt 25:5) “Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep.
(Mt 25:6) “But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ (Mt 25:7) “Then all those virgins rose, and trimmed their lamps. (Mt 25:8) “And the foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ (Mt 25:9) “But the prudent answered, saying, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ (Mt 25:10) “And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. (Mt 25:11) “And later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ (Mt 25:12) “But he answered and said, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ (Mt 25:13) “Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
(Mt 25:14) “For it is just like a man about to go on a journey, who called his own slaves, and entrusted his possessions to them. (Mt 25:15) “And to one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey. (Mt 25:16) “Immediately the one who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained five more talents. (Mt 25:17) “In the same manner the one who had received the two talents gained two more. (Mt 25:18) “But he who received the one talent went away and dug in the ground, and hid his master’s money.
(Mt 25:19) “Now after a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. (Mt 25:20) “And the one who had received the five talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted five talents to me; see, I have gained five more talents.’ (Mt 25:21) “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave; you were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things, enter into the joy of your master.’ (Mt 25:22) “The one also who had received the two talents came up and said, ‘Master, you entrusted to me two talents; see, I have gained two more talents.’ (Mt 25:23) “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave; you were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
(Mt 25:24) “And the one also who had received the one talent came up and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed. (Mt 25:25) ‘And I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the ground; see, you have what is yours.’ (Mt 25:26) “But his master answered and said to him, ‘You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I scattered no seed. (Mt 25:27) ‘Then you ought to have put my money in the bank, and on my arrival I would have received my money back with interest. (Mt 25:28) ‘Therefore take away the talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents.’
(Mt 25:29) “For to everyone who has shall more be given, and he shall have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. (Mt 25:30) “And cast out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(Mt 25:31) “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. (Mt 25:32) “And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; (Mt 25:33) and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. (Mt 25:34) “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (Mt 25:35) ‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; (Mt 25:36) naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ (Mt 25:37) “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? (Mt 25:38) ‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? (Mt 25:39) ‘And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ (Mt 25:40) “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
(Mt 25:41) “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; (Mt 25:42) for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; (Mt 25:43) I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ (Mt 25:44) “Then they themselves also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ (Mt 25:45) “Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ (Mt 25:46) “And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
(Jn 12:1) Jesus, therefore, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and Lazarus was there, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. (Jn 12:2) So they made Him a supper there, and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him. (Jn 12:3) Mary therefore took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard in an alabaster jar, and she broke the vial and she poured it upon His head as He reclined at the table, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. (Jn 12:4) But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, said, (Jn 12:5) “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii, and given to poor people?” (Jn 12:6) Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it. (Mt 26:6-9) (Mk 14:3-5)
(Jn 12:7) Jesus therefore said, “Why do you bother the woman? Let her alone, for she has done a good deed to Me. in order that she may keep it for the day of My burial. (Jn 12:8) “For the poor you always have with you, and whenever you wish, you can do them good, but you do not always have Me.” (Mk 14:8) “She has done what she could; she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial. (Mk 14:9) “And truly I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, that also which this woman has done shall be spoken of in memory of her.” (Mt 26:10-13) (Mk 14:6-7)
(Lk 21:37) Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet.
(Lk 21:38) And all the people would get up early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him. (Mt 26:1) And it came about that when Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples, (Mt 26:2) “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is to be delivered up for crucifixion.” (Mt 26:3) Then the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, named Caiaphas; (Mt 26:4) and they plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth, and kill Him. (Mt 26:5) But they were saying, “Not during the festival, lest a riot occur among the people.” (Mk 14:1-2)
(Jn 12:9) The great multitude therefore of the Jews learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead. (Jn 12:10) But the chief priests took counsel that they might put Lazarus to death also; (Jn 12:11) because on account of him many of the Jews were going away, and were believing in Jesus. (Jn 12:20) Now there were certain Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast; (Jn 12:21) these therefore came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” (Jn 12:22) Philip came and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip came, and they told Jesus.
(Jn 12:23) And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
(Jn 12:24) “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
(Jn 12:25) “He who loves his life loses it; and he who hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal. (Jn 12:26) “If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall My servant also be; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
(Jn 12:27) “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. (Jn 12:28) “Father, glorify Thy name.” There came therefore a voice out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.” (Jn 12:29) The multitude therefore, who stood by and heard it, were saying that it had thundered; others were saying, “An angel has spoken to Him.” (Jn 12:30) Jesus answered and said, “This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. (Jn 12:31) “Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast out. (Jn 12:32) “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” (Jn 12:33) But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.
(Jn 12:34) The multitude therefore answered Him, “We have heard out of the Law that the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, ‘The Son of Man must be lifted up’? Who is this Son of Man?”
(Jn 12:35) Jesus therefore said to them, “For a little while longer the light is among you. Walk while you have the light, that darkness may not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. (Jn 12:36) “While you have the light, believe in the light, in order that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and He departed and hid Himself from them.
(Jn 12:37) But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him; (Jn 12:38) that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” (Jn 12:39) For this cause they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, (Jn 12:40) “He has blinded their eyes, and He hardened their heart; lest they see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and be converted, and I heal them.” (Jn 12:41) These things Isaiah said, because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him.
(Jn 12:42) Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; (Jn 12:43) for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God. (Jn 12:44) And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me does not believe in Me, but in Him who sent Me. (Jn 12:45) “And he who beholds Me beholds the One who sent Me. (Jn 12:46) “I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness.
(Jn 12:47) “And if anyone hears My sayings, and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. (Jn 12:48) “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. (Jn 12:49) “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak. (Jn 12:50) “And I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.”
(Luke 22:1) Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching. (Lk 22:2) And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might put Him to death; for they were afraid of the people. (Lk 22:3) And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve. (Lk 22:4) And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them. (Lk 22:5) And they were glad, and agreed to give him thirty pieces of silver. (Lk 22:6) And he consented, and began seeking a good opportunity to betray Him to them apart from the multitude. (Mt 26:14-16) (Mk 14:10-11)
(Lk 22:7) Then came the first day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. (Lk 22:8) And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it.” (Lk 22:9) And they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare it?” (Lk 22:10) And He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters. (Lk 22:11) “And you shall say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”‘ (Lk 22:12) “And he will show you a large, furnished, upper room; prepare it there.” (Lk 22:13) And they departed and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover. (Mt 26:17-19) (Mk 14:12-16)
(Lk 22:14) And when the hour had come He reclined at the table, and the twelve apostles with Him. (Jn 13:1) Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. (Jn 13:2) And during supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him, (Jn 13:3) Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come forth from God, and was going back to God, (Jn 13:4) rose from supper, and laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He girded Himself about. (Jn 13:5) Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. (Mt 26:20) (Mk 14:17)
(Jn 13:6) And so He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, “Lord, do You wash my feet?” (Jn 13:7) Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do you do not realize now, but you shall understand hereafter.” (Jn 13:8) Peter said to Him, “Never shall You wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
(Jn 13:9) Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.” (Jn 13:10) Jesus said to him, “He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.” (Jn 13:11) For He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, “Not all of you are clean.”
(Jn 13:12) And so when He had washed their feet, and taken His garments, and reclined at the table again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? (Jn 13:13) “You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. (Jn 13:14) “If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. (Jn 13:15) “For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. (Jn 13:16) “Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master; neither is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. (Jn 13:17) “If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.
(Lk 22:15) And He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; (Lk 22:16) for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” (Lk 22:17) And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves; (Lk 22:18) for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” (Mt 26:27-29) (Mk 14:23, 25)
(Lk 22:19) And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (Lk 22:20) And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. (Mt 26:26, 28) (Mk 14:22, 24)
(Lk 22:21) And as they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, “But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Me on the table. (Lk 22:22) “For indeed, the Son of Man is going as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!” (Lk 22:23) And they began to discuss among themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing. (Jn 13:18) “I do not speak of all of you. I know the ones I have chosen; but it is that the Scripture may be fulfilled, ‘He who eats My bread has lifted up his heel against Me.’ (Mt 26:21) (Mk 14:18)
(Jn 13:19) “From now on I am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that I am He. (Jn 13:20) “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.” (Jn 13:21) When Jesus had said this, He became troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me.”
(Mt 26:22) And being deeply grieved, they each one began to say to Him, “Surely not I, Lord?” (Jn 13:22) The disciples began looking at one another, at a loss to know of which one He was speaking. (Jn 13:23) There was reclining on Jesus’ breast one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. (Jn 13:24) Simon Peter therefore gestured to him, and said to him, “Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking.” (Jn 13:25) He, leaning back thus on Jesus’ breast, said to Him, “Lord, who is it?” (Jn 13:26) Jesus therefore answered, “That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him.” So when He had dipped the morsel, He took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. (Mt 26:23) (Mk 14:19-20)
(Mt 26:24) “The Son of Man is to go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.” (Mt 26:25) And Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Surely it is not I, Rabbi?” He said to him, “You have said it yourself.” (Jn 13:27) And after the morsel, Satan then entered into him. Jesus therefore said to him, “What you do, do quickly.” (Mk 14:21)
(Jn 13:28) Now no one of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him. (Jn 13:29) For some were supposing, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, “Buy the things we have need of for the feast”; or else, that he should give something to the poor. (Jn 13:30) And so after receiving the morsel he went out immediately; and it was night.
(Jn 13:31) When therefore he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him; (Jn 13:32) if God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately. (Jn 13:33) “Little children, I am with you a little while longer. You shall seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, I now say to you also, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’
(Jn 13:34) “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. (Jn 13:35) “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
(Lk 22:24) And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest. (Lk 22:25) And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called ‘Benefactors.’ (Lk 22:26) “But not so with you, but let him who is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as the servant. (Lk 22:27) “For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table, or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves. (Lk 22:28) “And you are those who have stood by Me in My trials; (Lk 22:29) and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you (Lk 22:30) that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
(Jn 14:1) “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. (Jn 14:2) “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. (Jn 14:3) “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. (Jn 14:4) “And you know the way where I am going.”
(Jn 14:5) Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” (Jn 14:6) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. (Jn 14:7) “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” (Jn 14:8) Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”
(Jn 14:9) Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how do you say, ‘Show us the Father’? (Jn 14:10) “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. (Jn 14:11) “Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise believe on account of the works themselves. (Jn 14:12) “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father. (Jn 14:13) “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (Jn 14:14) “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
(Jn 14:15) “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. (Jn 14:16) “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; (Jn 14:17) that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you. (Jn 14:18) “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. (Jn 14:19) “After a little while the world will behold Me no more; but you will behold Me; because I live, you shall live also. (Jn 14:20) “In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. (Jn 14:21) “He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him.”
(Jn 14:22) Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, what then has happened that You are going to disclose Yourself to us, and not to the world?” (Jn 14:23) Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him. (Jn 14:24) “He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
(Jn 14:25) “These things I have spoken to you, while abiding with you. (Jn 14:26) “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. (Jn 14:27) “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
(Jn 14:28) “You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced, because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. (Jn 14:29) “And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that when it comes to pass, you may believe. (Jn 14:30) “I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me; (Jn 14:31) but that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go from here.
(Jn 15:1) “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. (Jn 15:2) “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit. (Jn 15:3) “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. (Jn 15:4) “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
(Jn 15:5) “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing. (Jn 15:6) “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch, and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (Jn 15:7) “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. (Jn 15:8) “By this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.
(Jn 15:9) “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. (Jn 15:10) “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love. (Jn 15:11) “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. (Jn 15:12) “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. (Jn 15:13) “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. (Jn 15:14) “You are My friends, if you do what I command you. (Jn 15:15) “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. (Jn 15:16) “You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give to you. (Jn 15:17) “This I command you, that you love one another.
(Jn 15:18) “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. (Jn 15:19) “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (Jn 15:20) “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. (Jn 15:21) “But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. (Jn 15:22) “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. (Jn 15:23) “He who hates Me hates My Father also. (Jn 15:24) “If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. (Jn 15:25) “But they have done this in order that the word may be fulfilled that is written in their Law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
(Jn 15:26) “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me, (Jn 15:27) and you will bear witness also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
(Jn 16:1) “These things I have spoken to you, that you may be kept from stumbling. (Jn 16:2) “They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. (Jn 16:3) “And these things they will do, because they have not known the Father, or Me. (Jn 16:4) “But these things I have spoken to you, that when their hour comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.
(Jn 16:5) “But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ (Jn 16:6) “But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. (Jn 16:7) “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. (Jn 16:8) “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment; (Jn 16:9) concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; (Jn 16:10) and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you no longer behold Me; (Jn 16:11) and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
(Jn 16:12) “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. (Jn 16:13) “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. (Jn 16:14) “He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you. (Jn 16:15) “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said, that He takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you. (Jn 16:16) “A little while, and you will no longer behold Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”
(Jn 16:17) Some of His disciples therefore said to one another, “What is this thing He is telling us, ‘A little while, and you will not behold Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?” (Jn 16:18) And so they were saying, “What is this that He says, ‘A little while’? We do not know what He is talking about.”
(Jn 16:19) Jesus knew that they wished to question Him, and He said to them, “Are you deliberating together about this, that I said, ‘A little while, and you will not behold Me, and again a little while, and you will see Me’? (Jn 16:20) “Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned to joy. (Jn 16:21) “Whenever a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she remembers the anguish no more, for joy that a child has been born into the world. (Jn 16:22) “Therefore you too now have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one takes your joy away from you. (Jn 16:23) “And in that day you will ask Me no question. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you shall ask the Father for anything, He will give it to you in My name. (Jn 16:24) “Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.
(Jn 16:25) “These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; an hour is coming when I will speak no more to you in figurative language, but will tell you plainly of the Father. (Jn 16:26) “In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will request the Father on your behalf; (Jn 16:27) for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from the Father. (Jn 16:28) “I came forth from the Father, and have come into the world; I am leaving the world again, and going to the Father.”
(Jn 16:29) His disciples said, “Lo, now You are speaking plainly, and are not using a figure of speech. (Jn 16:30) “Now we know that You know all things, and have no need for anyone to question You; by this we believe that You came from God.” (Jn 16:31) Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? (Jn 16:32) “Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave Me alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. (Jn 16:33) “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
(Jn 17:1) These things Jesus spoke; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, (Jn 17:2) even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life. (Jn 17:3) “And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent. (Jn 17:4) “I glorified Thee on the earth, having accomplished the work which Thou hast given Me to do. (Jn 17:5) “And now, glorify Thou Me together with Thyself, Father, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.
(Jn 17:6) “I manifested Thy name to the men whom Thou gavest Me out of the world; Thine they were, and Thou gavest them to Me, and they have kept Thy word. (Jn 17:7) “Now they have come to know that everything Thou hast given Me is from Thee; (Jn 17:8) for the words which Thou gavest Me I have given to them; and they received them, and truly understood that I came forth from Thee, and they believed that Thou didst send Me. (Jn 17:9) “I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine; (Jn 17:10) and all things that are Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I have been glorified in them. (Jn 17:11) “And I am no more in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep them in Thy name, the name which Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, even as We are. (Jn 17:12) “While I was with them, I was keeping them in Thy name which Thou hast given Me; and I guarded them, and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
(Jn 17:13) “But now I come to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves. (Jn 17:14) “I have given them Thy word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. (Jn 17:15) “I do not ask Thee to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. (Jn 17:16) “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. (Jn 17:17) “Sanctify them in the truth; Thy word is truth. (Jn 17:18) “As Thou didst send Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. (Jn 17:19) “And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
(Jn 17:20) “I do not ask in behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; (Jn 17:21) that they may all be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me. (Jn 17:22) “And the glory which Thou hast given Me I have given to them; that they may be one, just as We are one; (Jn 17:23) I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, that the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and didst love them, even as Thou didst love Me.
(Jn 17:24) “Father, I desire that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am, in order that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me; for Thou didst love Me before the foundation of the world. (Jn 17:25) “O righteous Father, although the world has not known Thee, yet I have known Thee; and these have known that Thou didst send Me; (Jn 17:26) and I have made Thy name known to them, and will make it known; that the love wherewith Thou didst love Me may be in them, and I in them.” (Mt 26:30) And after singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. (Mk 14:26)
(Mt 26:31) Then Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away because of Me this night, for it is written, ‘I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered.’ (Mt 26:32) “But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee.” (Jn 13:36) Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered, “Where I go, you cannot follow Me now; but you shall follow later.” (Jn 13:37) Peter said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You right now? I will lay down my life for You.” (Lk 22:31) “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; (Lk 22:32) but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” (Mk 14:27-28)
(Lk 22:33) And he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death! Even though all may fall away because of You, I will never fall away.” (Lk 22:34) And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the cock will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.” (Mt 26:35) Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You.” All the disciples said the same thing too. (Mt 26:33-34) (Mk 14:29-31) (Jn 13:38)
(Lk 22:35) And He said to them, “When I sent you out without purse and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” And they said, “No, nothing.” (Lk 22:36) And He said to them, “But now, let him who has a purse take it along, likewise also a bag, and let him who has no sword sell his robe and buy one. (Lk 22:37) “For I tell you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me,’ And He was numbered with transgressors’; for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment.” (Lk 22:38) And they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.” And He said to them, “It is enough.”
(Lk 22:39) And He came out and proceeded as was His custom over the ravine of the Kidron, where there was a garden, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him to a place named Gethsemane. (Lk 22:40) And when He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” (Mt 26:37) And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, James and John, and began to be grieved and distressed. (Mt 26:38) Then He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.” (Mt 26:36) (Mk 14:32-34) (Jn 18:1)
(Lk 22:41) And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and fell on His face and began to pray, (Lk 22:42) saying, “Abba! Father, all things are possible for Thee; if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Thine be done.” (Mt 26:39) (Mk 14:35-36)
(Lk 22:43) Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. (Lk 22:44) And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground. (Lk 22:45) And when He rose from prayer, He came to the disciples and found them sleeping from sorrow, said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? (Lk 22:46) and said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mt 26:40-41) (Mk 14:38)
(Mt 26:42) He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Thy will be done.” (Mt 26:43) And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. (Mt 26:44) And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more. (Mt 26:45) Then He came to the disciples, and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. (Mt 26:46) “Arise, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!” (Mk 14:39-42)
(Jn 18:2) Now Judas also, who was betraying Him, knew the place; for Jesus had often met there with His disciples. (Lk 22:47) While He was still speaking, behold, a multitude came with swords and clubs and lanterns, from the chief priests and elders of the people., and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him. (Mt 26:47) (Mk 14:43) (Jn 18:3)
(Jn 18:4) Jesus therefore, knowing all the things that were coming upon Him, went forth, and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” (Jn 18:5) They answered Him, “Jesus the Nazarene.” He said to them, “I am He.” And Judas also who was betraying Him, was standing with them. (Jn 18:6) When therefore He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back, and fell to the ground. (Jn 18:7) Again therefore He asked them, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus the Nazarene.” (Jn 18:8) Jesus answered, “I told you that I am He; if therefore you seek Me, let these go their way,” (Jn 18:9) that the word might be fulfilled which He spoke, “Of those whom Thou hast given Me I lost not one.”
(Mt 26:48) Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, “Whomever I shall kiss, He is the one; seize Him.” (Lk 22:48) But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” (Mt 26:49) And immediately he went to Jesus and said, “Hail, Rabbi!” and kissed Him. (Mt 26:50) And Jesus said to him, “Friend, do what you have come for.” Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him. (Mk 14:44-46)
(Lk 22:49) And when those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” (Lk 22:50) And a certain one of them, Simon Peter, struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear, and the slave’s name was Malchus. (Lk 22:51) But Jesus answered and said, “Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him. (Jn 18:11) Jesus therefore said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it? for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.” (Mt 26:53) “Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels? (Mt 26:54) “How then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen this way?” (Mt 26:51-52) (Mk 14:47) (Jn 18:10)
(Lk 22:52) And Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as against a robber? (Lk 22:53) “While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours and this has happened that the Scriptures might be fulfilled.” (Mk 14:50) And they all left Him and fled. (Mk 14:51) And a certain young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. (Mk 14:52) But he left the linen sheet behind, and escaped naked. (Mt 26:55-56) (Mk 14:48-49)
(Jn 18:12) So the Roman cohort and the commander and the officers of the Jews, arrested Jesus and bound Him, (Jn 18:13) and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. (Jn 18:14) Now Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people.
(Jn 18:19) The high priest then questioned Jesus about His disciples, and about His teaching. (Jn 18:20) Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world; I always taught in synagogues, and in the temple, where all the Jews come together; and I spoke nothing in secret. (Jn 18:21) “Why do you question Me? Question those who have heard what I spoke to them; behold, these know what I said.” (Jn 18:22) And when He had said this, one of the officers standing by gave Jesus a blow, saying, “Is that the way You answer the high priest?” (Jn 18:23) Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken wrongly, bear witness of the wrong; but if rightly, why do you strike Me?”
(Lk 22:54) Annas therefore sent Him bound to the house of the high priest Caiaphas, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together; but Peter was following at a distance. (Mt 26:57) (Mk 14:53) (Jn 18:12-13, 24)
(Jn 18:15) Simon Peter was following Jesus, and so was another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered with Jesus into the court of the high priest, (Jn 18:16) but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought in Peter.
(Lk 22:55) And after they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard for it was cold and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them. (Lk 22:56) And a certain servant-girl of the high priest who kept the door, seeing him as he sat in the firelight, and looking intently at him, said, “This man was with Jesus the Nazarene too, as one of his disciples.” (Lk 22:57) But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him, nor understand what you are talking about.” And he went out onto the porch.” (Lk 22:58) And a little later, another servant-girl saw him and said to the bystanders, “You are one of them too!” But Peter again denied it with an oath and said, “Man, I am not!” (Mt 26:69-72) (Mk 14:66-69) (Jn 18:17-18, 25)
(Lk 22:59) And after about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, “Certainly this man also was with Him, for he is a Galilean too, for the way you talk gives you away.” (Jn 18:26) One of the slaves of the high priest, being a relative of the one whose ear Peter cut off, said, “Did I not see you in the garden with Him?” (Lk 22:60) But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, a cock crowed. (Lk 22:61) And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, “Before a cock crows today, you will deny Me three times.” (Lk 22:62) And he went out and wept bitterly. (Mt 26:73-75) (Mk 14:70-72) (Jn 18:27)
(Mt 26:59) Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, in order that they might put Him to death; (Mt 26:60) and they did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on two came forward, (Mt 26:61) and said, “This man stated, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to rebuild it without hands in three days.'” (Mk 14:59) And not even in this respect was their testimony consistent. (Mt 26:62) And the high priest stood up and said to Him, “Do You make no answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” But Jesus kept silent. (Mt 26:58, 63) (Mk 14:54-58, 60-61) (Jn 18:15, 19)
(Lk 22:63) And the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him, and beating Him, (Lk 22:64) and they blindfolded Him and were asking Him, saying, “Prophesy, who is the one who hit You?” (Lk 22:65) And they were saying many other things against Him, blaspheming.
(Lk 22:66) And when it was day, the Council of elders of the people assembled, both chief priests and scribes, and they led Him away to their council chamber, saying, (Lk 22:67) “If You are the Christ, tell us.” But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe; (Lk 22:68) and if I ask a question, you will not answer. (Lk 22:69) “But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God and coming with the clouds of heaven.” (Lk 22:70) And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.” (Mt 26:62, 64) (Mk 14:62)
(Lk 22:71) Then the high priest tore his robes, saying, “He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.” (Mt 26:66) what do you think? “They answered and said,” He is deserving of death! ” (Mt 26:65) (Mk 14:63-64)
(Mt 26:67) Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him, (Mk 14:65) And some began to spit at Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, “Prophesy!” And the officers received Him with slaps in the face. (Mt 26:68) and said, “Prophesy to us, you Christ; who is the one who hit you?”
(Luke 23:1) Then the whole body of them arose and brought Him before Pilate, the governor. (Jn 18:28) They led Jesus therefore from Caiaphas into the Praetorium, and it was early; and they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium in order that they might not be defiled, but might eat the Passover. (Mt 27:1-2) (Mk 15:1)
(Mt 27:3) Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, (Mt 27:4) saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? See to that yourself!” (Mt 27:5) And he threw the pieces of silver into the sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. (Mt 27:6) And the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the temple treasury, since it is the price of blood.” (Mt 27:7) And they counseled together and with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers. (Mt 27:8) For this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. (Mt 27:9) Then that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the one whose price had been set by the sons of Israel; (Mt 27:10) and they gave them for the Potter’s Field, as the Lord directed me.”
(Lk 23:2) And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.” (Jn 18:29) Pilate therefore went out to them, and said, “What accusation do you bring against this Man?” (Jn 18:30) They answered and said to him, “If this Man were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you.” (Jn 18:31) Pilate therefore said to them, “Take Him yourselves, and judge Him according to your law.” The Jews said to him, “We are not permitted to put anyone to death,” (Jn 18:32) that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which He spoke, signifying by what kind of death He was about to die.
(Lk 23:3) Pilate therefore entered again into the Praetorium, and summoned Jesus, and Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And He answered him and said, “It is as you say.” (Mt 27:11) Mk 15:2) (Jn 18:33)
(Jn 18:34) Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or did others tell you about Me?” (Jn 18:35) Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You up to me; what have You done?” (Jn 18:36) Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting, that I might not be delivered up to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” (Jn 18:37) Pilate therefore said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (Jn 18:38) Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, “I find no guilt in Him.
(Mt 27:12) And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He made no answer. (Mt 27:13) Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You make no answer? Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” (Mt 27:14) And He did not answer him with regard to even a single charge, so that the governor was quite amazed. (Mk 15:3-5)
(Lk 23:4) And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, “I find no guilt in this man.” (Lk 23:5) But they kept on insisting, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee, even as far as this place.” (Lk 23:6) But when Pilate heard it, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. (Lk 23:7) And when he learned that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was in Jerusalem at that time.
(Lk 23:8) Now Herod was very glad when he saw Jesus; for he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had been hearing about Him and was hoping to see some sign performed by Him. (Lk 23:9) And he questioned Him at some length; but He answered him nothing. (Lk 23:10) And the chief priests and the scribes were standing there, accusing Him vehemently. (Lk 23:11) And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. (Lk 23:12) Now Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been at enmity with each other.
(Lk 23:13) And Pilate summoned the chief priests and the rulers and the people, (Lk 23:14) and said to them, “You brought this man to me as one who incites the people to rebellion, and behold, having examined Him before you, I have found no guilt in this man regarding the charges which you make against Him. (Lk 23:15) “No, nor has Herod, for he sent Him back to us; and behold, nothing deserving death has been done by Him. (Lk 23:16) “I will therefore punish Him and release Him.”
(Lk 23:17) [Now he was obliged to release to the multitude at the feast any one prisoner whom they wanted.] (Mt 27:17) When therefore they were gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release for you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” (Lk 23:18) But they cried out all together, saying, “Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!” (Lk 23:19) (He was one who had been thrown into prison for a certain insurrection made in the city, and for murder.) (Mt 27:15-16) (Mk 15:6-8)
(Mk 15:9) And Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” (Mk 15:10) For he was aware that the chief priests had delivered Him up because of envy. (Mt 27:18) (Jn 18:39)
(Mt 27:19) And while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that righteous Man; for last night I suffered greatly in a dream because of Him.” (Lk 23:20) And Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again, (Mt 27:20) But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes to ask for Barabbas, and to put Jesus to death. (Mt 27:21) But the governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?” And they said, “Barabbas.” (Mk 15:11) (Jn 18:40)
(Jn 19:4) And Pilate came out again, and said to them, “Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you may know that I find no guilt in Him.” (Jn 19:5) Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold, the Man!” (Jn 19:6) When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify, crucify!” Pilate said to them, “Take Him yourselves, and crucify Him, for I find no guilt in Him.” (Jn 19:7) The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and by that law He ought to die because He made Himself out to be the Son of God.”
(Jn 19:8) When Pilate therefore heard this statement, he was the more afraid; (Jn 19:9) and he entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Jesus, “Where are You from?” But Jesus gave him no answer. (Jn 19:10) Pilate therefore said to Him, “You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?” (Jn 19:11) Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me up to you has the greater sin.” (Jn 19:12) As a result of this Pilate made efforts to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, “If you release this Man, you are no friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself out to be a king opposes Caesar.”
(Jn 19:13) When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha. (Jn 19:14) Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!” (Jn 19:15) They therefore cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” (Lk 23:21) but they kept on calling out, saying, “Crucify, crucify Him!” (Lk 23:22) And he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; I will therefore punish Him and release Him.” (Mt 27:22-23) (Mk 15:12-14)
(Mt 27:24) And when Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that a riot was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of this Man’s blood; see to that yourselves.” (Mt 27:25) And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children!” (Lk 23:23) But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. (Lk 23:24) And Pilate pronounced sentence that their demand should be granted.
(Lk 23:25) And he released Barabbas, the man they were asking for who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, but after having Jesus scourged, he delivered Him to be crucified. (Mt 27:26) (Mk 15:15) (Jn 19:1)
(Mt 27:27) Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. (Mt 27:28) And they stripped Him, and put a scarlet robe on Him. (Mt 27:29) And after weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they kneeled down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” (Mt 27:30) And they spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head, and spitting at Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him. (Mt 27:31) And after they had mocked Him, they took His robe off and put His garments on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him. (Mk 15:16-20) (Jn 19:2-3, 16)
(Jn 19:17) They took Jesus therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha. (Lk 23:26) And when they led Him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, (the father of Alexander and Rufus), coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus. (Mt 27:32) (Mk 15:21)
(Lk 23:27) And there were following Him a great multitude of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him. (Lk 23:28) But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. (Lk 23:29) “For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’ (Lk 23:30) “Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ (Lk 23:31) “For if they do these things in the green tree, what will happen in the dry?” (Lk 23:32) And two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him.
(Lk 23:33) And when they came to the place called Golgotha, which is translated, place of a Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. (Mt 27:34) they gave Him wine to drink mingled with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink. (Mt 27:33) (Mk 15:22-23)
(Lk 23:34) But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. (Jn 19:23) The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took His outer garments and made four parts, a part to every soldier and also the tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece. (Jn 19:24) So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to decide whose it shall be”; this was to fulfill the Scripture: “They divided My outer garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.” (Mt 27:36) and sitting down, they began to keep watch over Him there. (Mk 15:25) And it was the third hour when they crucified Him. (Mt 27:35) (Mk 15:24)
(Jn 19:25) Therefore the soldiers did these things. But there were standing by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. (Jn 19:26) When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” (Jn 19:27) Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own household.
(Lk 23:35) And the people stood by, looking on. And even the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One, He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we shall believe in Him.” (Lk 23:36) And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, (Lk 23:37) and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!” (Mt 27:41-42) (Mk 15:31)
(Mt 27:38) At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left. (Mk 15:28) [And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with transgressors.”] (Mt 27:39) And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, (Mt 27:40) and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” (Mt 27:43) “He trusts in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He takes pleasure in Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.'” (Mt 27:44) And the robbers also who had been crucified with Him were casting the same insult at Him. (Mk 15:27, 29-30) (Jn 19:18)
(Lk 23:38) Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Jn 19:20) Therefore this inscription many of the Jews read, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and in Greek. (Jn 19:21) And so the chief priests of the Jews were saying to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews’; but that He said, ‘I am King of the Jews.'” (Jn 19:22) Pilate answered, “What I have written I have written.” (Mt 27:37) (Mk 15:26) (Jn 19:19-20)
(Lk 23:39) And one of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” (Lk 23:40) But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? (Lk 23:41) “And we indeed justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” (Lk 23:42) And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” (Lk 23:43) And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”
(Lk 23:44) And it was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, (Lk 23:45) the sun being obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth shook; and the rocks were split. (Mt 27:45, 51), (Mk 15:33, 38)
(Mt 27:46) And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? ” which is translated, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (Mt 27:47) And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, “This man is calling for Elijah.” (Mt 27:49) But the rest of them said, “Let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him.” (Mk 15:34-35)
(Jn 19:28) After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I am thirsty.” (Jn 19:29) A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop, and brought it up to His mouth. (Mt 27:48) (Mk 15:36)
(Lk 23:46) And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “It is finished! Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit.” And having said this, He breathed His last and yielded up His spirit. (Mt 27:50) (Mk 15:37) (Jn 19:30)
(Mt 27:52) and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; (Mt 27:53) and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many. (Lk 23:47) Now when the centurion who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he began praising God, saying, “Certainly, this man was innocent. Truly this man was the Son of God! (Lk 23:48) And all the multitudes who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, beating their breasts. (Lk 23:49) And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee, among whom was Mary Magdalene, along with Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee, were standing at a distance, seeing these things. (Mt 27:54-56) (Mk 15:39-41)
(Jn 19:31) The Jews therefore, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
(Jn 19:32) The soldiers therefore came, and broke the legs of the first man, and of the other man who was crucified with Him; (Jn 19:33) but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs; (Jn 19:34) but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water. (Jn 19:35) And he who has seen has borne witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. (Jn 19:36) For these things came to pass, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “Not a bone of Him shall be broken.” (Jn 19:37) And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”
(Mk 15:42) And when evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, (Lk 23:50) And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus, but a secret one, for fear of the Jews, (Lk 23:51) (he had not consented to their plan and action), a rich man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God; (Lk 23:52) this man gathered up courage and went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. (Mt 27:57-8) (Mk 15:43) (Jn 19:38)
(Mk 15:44) And Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead. (Mk 15:45) And ascertaining this from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.
(Jn 19:39) And Nicodemus came also, who had first come to Him by night; bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds weight. (Lk 23:53) And Joseph took it down and wrapped it in linen wrappings with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb made for Joseph, and they laid Him in that tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain. (Lk 23:54) And it was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin and because the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there. He rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away. (Mt 27:59-60) (Mk 15:46) (Jn 19:40-42)
(Lk 23:55) Now Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses, who had come with Him out of Galilee followed after, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid. (Lk 23:56) And they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. (Mt 27:61) (Mk 15:47)
(Mt 27:62) Now on the next day, which is the one after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together with Pilate, (Mt 27:63) and said, “Sir, we remember that when He was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I am to rise again.’ (Mt 27:64) “Therefore, give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, lest the disciples come and steal Him away and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.” (Mt 27:65) Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go, make it as secure as you know how.” (Mt 27:66) And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.
(Luke 24:1) But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared, that they might come and anoint Him. (Mk 16:3) And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” (Lk 24:2) But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, although it was extremely large. (Mt 28:2) And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. (Mt 28:3) And his appearance was like lightning, and his garment as white as snow; (Mt 28:4) and the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. (Mt 28:5) And the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. (Mt 28:6) “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. (Lk 24:3) but when they entered the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus and they were amazed. (Mt 28:1) (Mk 16:1-2, 4-6) (Jn 20:1)
(Lk 24:4) And it happened that while they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling apparel; (Lk 24:5) and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? (Lk 24:6) “He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, (Lk 24:7) saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” (Mt 28:7) “And go quickly and tell His disciples and Peter that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” (Mk 16:7)
(Lk 24:8) And they remembered His words, (Lk 24:9) and returned from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. (Lk 24:10) Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles, while they were mourning and weeping. “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.” (Lk 24:11) And these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them. (Mt 28:8) (Mk 16:8, 10-11) (Jn 20:2)
(Jn 20:3) Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb. (Jn 20:4) And the two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter, and came to the tomb first; (Jn 20:5) and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the face-cloth, which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself; but he did not go in. (Lk 24:12) [But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at that which had happened.] (Jn 20:8) So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb entered then also, and he saw and believed. (Jn 20:9) For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. (Jn 20:10) So the disciples went away again to their own homes. (Jn 20:6-7)
(Jn 20:11) But Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons, was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; (Jn 20:12) and she beheld two angels in white sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. (Jn 20:13) And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” (Jn 20:14) When she had said this, she turned around, and beheld Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. (Jn 20:15) Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” (Jn 20:16) Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). (Jn 20:17) Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'” “Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they shall see Me.” (Jn 20:18) Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that He had said these things to her.
(Mt 28:9-10) (Mk 16:9)
(Mt 28:11) Now while they were on their way, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened. (Mt 28:12) And when they had assembled with the elders and counseled together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, (Mt 28:13) and said, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep.’ (Mt 28:14) “And if this should come to the governor’s ears, we will win him over and keep you out of trouble.” (Mt 28:15) And they took the money and did as they had been instructed; and this story was widely spread among the Jews, and is to this day.
(Lk 24:13) And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. (Lk 24:14) And they were conversing with each other about all these things which had taken place. (Lk 24:15) And it came about that while they were conversing and discussing, Jesus Himself approached, and began traveling with them. (Lk 24:16) But their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. (Mk 16:12)
(Lk 24:17) And He said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?” And they stood still, looking sad. (Lk 24:18) And one of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, “Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware of the things which have happened here in these days?” (Lk 24:19) And He said to them, “What things?” And they said to Him, “The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, (Lk 24:20) and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him up to the sentence of death, and crucified Him. (Lk 24:21) “But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened. (Lk 24:22) “But also some women among us amazed us. When they were at the tomb early in the morning, (Lk 24:23) and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive. (Lk 24:24) “And some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see.”
(Lk 24:25) And He said to them, “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! (Lk 24:26) “Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?” (Lk 24:27) And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
(Lk 24:28) And they approached the village where they were going, and He acted as though He would go farther. (Lk 24:29) And they urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over.” And He went in to stay with them. (Lk 24:30) And it came about that when He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. (Lk 24:31) And their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.
(Lk 24:32) And they said to one another, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?” (Lk 24:33) And they arose that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found gathered together the eleven and those who were with them, (Lk 24:34) saying, “The Lord has really risen, and has appeared to Simon.” (Lk 24:35) And they began to relate their experiences on the road and how He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread. (Mk 16:13)
(Lk 24:36) When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, and while they were telling these things, Jesus Himself stood in their midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” (Lk 24:37) But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit, and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. (Mk 16:14) (Jn 20:19)
(Lk 24:38) And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? (Lk 24:39) “See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” (Jn 20:20) And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord. (Lk 24:40) [And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.] (Lk 24:41) And while they still could not believe it for joy and were marveling, He said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” (Lk 24:42) And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish; (Lk 24:43) and He took it and ate it before them.
(Lk 24:44) Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” (Lk 24:45) Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, (Lk 24:46) and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead the third day; (Lk 24:47) and that repentance for forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. (Lk 24:48) “You are witnesses of these things. (Lk 24:49) “And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”
(Jn 20:21) Jesus therefore said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” (Jn 20:22) And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. (Jn 20:23) “If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”
(Jn 20:24) But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. (Jn 20:25) The other disciples therefore were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I shall see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
(Jn 20:26) And after eight days again His disciples were inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst, and said, “Peace be with you.” (Jn 20:27) Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing.” (Jn 20:28) Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” (Jn 20:29) Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
(Mk 16:15) And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. (Mk 16:16) “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. (Mk 16:17) “And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; (Mk 16:18) they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
(Mt 28:16) But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. (Mt 28:17) And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. (Mt 28:18) And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. (Mt 28:19) “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, (Mt 28:20) teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
(Jn 20:30) Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; (Jn 20:31) but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
(Jn 21:1) After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. (Jn 21:2) There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples. (Jn 21:3) Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will also come with you.” They went out, and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.
(Jn 21:4) But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. (Jn 21:5) Jesus therefore said to them, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.” (Jn 21:6) And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you will find a catch.” They cast therefore, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish. (Jn 21:7) That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” And so when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea. (Jn 21:8) But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish. (Jn 21:9) And so when they got out upon the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid, and fish placed on it, and bread.
(Jn 21:10) Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have now caught.” (Jn 21:11) Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. (Jn 21:12) Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples ventured to question Him, “Who are You?” knowing that it was the Lord. (Jn 21:13) Jesus came and took the bread, and gave them, and the fish likewise. (Jn 21:14) This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.
(Jn 21:15) So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.” (Jn 21:16) He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.” (Jn 21:17) He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to Him,” Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you. Jesus said to him, “tend My sheep.”
(Jn 21:18) “Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself, and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.” (Jn 21:19) Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow me!”
(Jn 21:20) Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” (Jn 21:21) Peter therefore seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” (Jn 21:22) Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!” (Jn 21:23) This saying therefore went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?”
(Lk 24:50) And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. (Lk 24:51) And it came about that while He was blessing them, He parted from them. (Mk 16:19) So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. (Lk 24:52) And they returned to Jerusalem with great joy, (Lk 24:53) and were continually in the temple, praising God. (Mk 16:20) And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.] [And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
(Jn 21:24) This is the disciple who bears witness of these things, and wrote these things; and we know that his witness is true. (Jn 21:25) And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written.
