Gospel of John
The Gospel of John, or The GospelJohn (Greekish: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην) is the fourth of the canonical gospels.
1. When Jesus had said these things, he went forth with his learningmen over the brook Cedron, where there was a garden, which he went into with his learningmen. 2. And Judas also, who swiked him, knew the stead; forthat Jesus had often come there together with his learningmen. 3. Judas therefore having underfanged a band of heremen and thains from the headpriests and the Pharisees, came there with lightvats and torches and weapons. 4. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said to them: Whom do you seek? 5. They answered him: Jesu of Nazareth. Jesus said to them: I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them. 6. As soon therefore as he had said to them: I am he; they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7. Again therefore he asked them: Whom do you seek? And they said, Jesu of Nazareth. 8. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way. 9. That the word might be fulfilled which he said: Of them whom you have given me, I have not lost any one. 10. Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and struck the thain of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the thain was Malchus.
11. Jesus therefore said to Peter: Put up your sword into its sheath. The cup which my Father has given me, shall I not drink it? 12. Then the band and the elder, and the Jews' thanes took Jesu and bound him: 13. And they led him away to Annas first, for he was the father in law to Caiphas who was the high priest of that year. 14. Now Caiphas was he who had given the rede to the Jews: That it was better that one man should die for the folk. 15. And Simon Peter followed Jesu, and so did another learningman. And that learningman was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesu into the hall of the bishop. 16.But Peter stood at the door without. The other learningman therefore, who was known to the high priest, went out, and spoke to the woman that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17. The maid therefore that was keeping the door, said to Peter: Are you not also one of this man's learningmen? He said: I am not. 18. Now the thanes and aldermen stood at a fire of coals, forthat it was cold, and warmed themselves. and with them was Peter also, standing, and warming himself. 19. The high priest therefore asked Jesu of his learningmen, and of his lore.
20. Jesus answered him: I have spoken openly to the world: I have always taught in the samming, and in the harrows, where all the Jews come together; and I have spoken nothing diley. 21. “Why do you ask me? ask them who hace heard what I have spoken unto them: behold they know what things I have said. 22. And when he had said these things, one of the thains standing by, gave Jesu a blow, saying: Do you answer the high priest so? 23. Jesus answered him: If I have spoken evil, kithe witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike me? 24. And Anas sent him bound to Caiphas the high priest. 25. And Simon Peter was standing, and warming himself. They said therefore to him: Aren't you one of his learningmen? He withsaked it, and said: I am not. 26. One of the thains of the high priest (a kinsman to him whose ear Peter cut off) said to him: Did I not see you in the garden with him? 27. Again therefore Peter withsaked; and straightaway the cock crew. 28. Then they led Jesu from Caiphas to the wieldend's hall, that they might not be besmitten, but that they might eat their eastermeal (pasch). 29. Pilate therefore went out to them, and said: What wroot do you bring against this man? 30. They answered, and said to him: If he were not an misdoer, we would not have brought him to you.
31. Pilate therefore said to them: You take him, and deem him after your law. The Jews therefore said to him: It is not lawful for us to put any man to death; 32. That the word of Jesu might be fulfilled, which he said, swuttling what death he should die. 33. Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called Jesu, and said to him: Are you the king of the Jews? 34. Jesus answered: Do you say this thing of yourself, or have others told you it of me? 35. Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Your own thede, and the headpriests have given you up to me: what have you done? 36. Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my thanes would wittedly strive that I should not be given over to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from here. 37. Pilate therefore said to him: Are you a king then? Jesus answered: You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world; that I should kithe witness to the truth. Everyone that is of the truth, hears my steven. 38. Pilate said to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them: I find no guilt in him. 39. But you have a wone that I should free someone for you at Easter; do you wish then that I free for you the King of the Jews?” 40. So they cried out again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas.” Now Barabbas was a robber.
1. Pilate then took Jesu and flogged him. 2. And the heremen twisted together a kinehelm and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple robe; 3. and they began to come up to him and say, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and to give him blows with their hands. 4. Pilate came out again and said to them, “Behold, I am bringing him out to you so that you may know that I find no guilt in him.” 5. Jesus then came out, wearing the kinehelm of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!” 6. So when the chief priests and the thanes saw him, they cried out saying, “Roodfasten him! Roodfasten him!” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and roodfasten him, for I find no guilt in him.” 7. The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and by that law he ought to die forthat he made himself out to be the Son of God.” 8. Therefore when Pilate heard this saying, he was even more afraid; 9. And went again into the doomhall, and said to Jesu, “Where are you from?” But Jesus gave him no answer. 10. So Pilate said to him, “You do not speak to me? Do you not know that I have anwield to free you, and I have might to roodfasten you?
11. Jesus answered, “You would have no might over me, unless it had been given you from above; therefore he that betook me to you has the greater sin.” 12. And from thenceforth Plate sought to forlet him: but the Jews cried out, saying, “If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself out to be a king speaks against Caesar.” 13. Therefore when Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesu out, and sat down on the doomseat at a stow called the Waydeck, but in Hebreish, Gabbaha. 14. Now it was the day of foregraithing for Easter, and about the sixth hour: and he said to the Jews, “Behold your king!” 15. So they cried out, “Away with him, away with him, berood him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I roodfasten your king?” The headpriests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” 16. So then he handed him over to them to be roodfastened. 17. They took Jesu, therefore, and he went out, bearing his own rood, to the stow called Skullstead, which is called in Hebreish, Golgotha. 18. There they roodfastened him, and with him two other men, one on either side, and Jesu in between. 19. Pilate also wrote an overwrit and put it on the rood. It was written, “Jesus the Nazarene, the King of the Jews.” 20. Therefore many of the Jews read this overwrit, for the stow where Jesus was roodfastened was near the borough; and it was in written in Hebreish, Latin, and in Greekish.
21. So the headpriests 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.'” 22. Pilate answered, “What I have written I have have written.” 23. Then the heremen, when they had roodfastened Jesu, took his outer clothes and made four deals, a deal to every hereman and also the coat; now the coat was seamless, woven in one snead. 24. So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to choose whose it shall be”; this was to fulfill the Holy Writ: “They todealt my outer clothes among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” 25. Therefore the heremen did these things. But standing by the rood of Jesu were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26. When Jesus saw his mother, and the learningman whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27. Then he said to the learningman, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the learningman took her into his own household. 28. After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been ended, to fulfill the Holy Writ, said, “I am thirsty.” 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. 30. Therefore when Jesus had fanged the sour wine, he said, “It is ended!” And he bowed his head and gave up the ghost.
31. Then the Jews, forthat it was the foregraithingday, so that the bodies would not abide on the rood on Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked 32. Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 33. So the heremen came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was roodfastened with him; but coming to Jesu, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34. But one hereman opened his side with a spear, and straightaway blood and water came out. 35. And he who has seen has kithed witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. 36. For these things were done to fulfill the Holy Writ, “Not a bone of him shall be broken.” 37. And again another Holy Writ says, “They shall look on him whom they throughfastened.” 38. After these things Joseph of Arimathea, being a learningman of Jesu, but in dern for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesu; and Pilate gave leave. So he came and took away his body. 39. Nicodemus, who had first come to him by night, also came, bringing a mix of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds weight. 40. So they took the body of Jesu and bound it in linen wrappings with the worts as is the burying thew of the Jews. 41. Now in the stow where he was roodfastened there was a garden, and in the garden a new berghing in which no-one had yet been laid. 42. There they laid Jesu therefore, forthat it was the foregraithingday, for the berghing was nigh at hand.
