John 4

When therefore the Teacher knew that the Pharisees had heard that Yahshua was making and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (although Yahshua himself baptized not, but his disciples), 3 he left Judea, and departed again into Galilee. 4 And it was necessary for him to pass through Samaria. 5 So he comes to a city of Samaria, called Shechem, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph: 6 and Jacob’s well was there. Yahshua therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour. 7 There comes a woman of Samaria to draw water: Yahshua says to her, Give me to drink. 8 For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. 9 The Samaritan woman therefore says to him, How is it that you, being a Jew, ask drink of me, who am a Samaritan woman? (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) 10 Yahshua answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of Elohim, and who it is that says to you, Give me to drink; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water. 11 The woman says to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: where then have you that living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, and his sons, and his cattle? 13 Yahshua answered and said to her, Every one that drinks of this water shall thirst again: 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. 15 The woman says to him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come all the way here to draw. 16 Yahshua says to her, Go, call your husband, and come here. 17 The woman answered and said to him, I have no husband. Yahshua says to her, You said well, I have no husband: 18 for you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband: this have you said truly. 19 The woman says to him, Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and you say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21 Yahshua says to her, Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall you worship the Father. 22 You worship that which you know not: we worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such does the Father seek to be his worshipers. 24 Yahweh is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. 25 The woman says to him, I know that Messiah comes (he that is called the Messiah): when he has come, he will declare to us all things. 26 Yahshua says to her, I that speak to you am he.


27 And upon this came his disciples; and they marveled that he was speaking with a woman; yet no man said, What are you looking for? or, Why do you talk with her? 28 So the woman left her waterpot, and went away into the city, and says to the people, 29 Come, see a man, who told me all things that ever I did: can this be the Messiah? 30 They went out of the city, and were coming to him. 31 In the meanwhile the disciples supplicated him, saying, Rabbi, eat. 32 But he said to them, I have meat to eat that you know not. 33 The disciples therefore said one to another, Has any man brought him anything to eat? 34 Yahshua says to them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white already to harvest. 36 He that reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit to life eternal; that he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this is the saying true. One sows, and another reaps. 38 I sent you to reap that on which you have not labored: others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.


39 And from that city many of the Samaritans believed on him because of the word of the woman, who testified, He told me all things that ever I did. 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they supplicated him to remain with them: and he remained there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word; 42 and they said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of your speaking: for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.


43 And after the two days he went forth from there into Galilee. 44 For Yahshua himself testified, that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 So when he came into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went to the feast.


46 He came therefore again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water into wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47 When he heard that Yahshua had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to him, and supplicated him that he would come down, and heal his son; for he was at the point of death. 48 Yahshua therefore said to him, Except you see signs and wonders, you will in no wise believe. 49 The nobleman says to him, Sir, come down before my child dies. 50 Yahshua says to him, Go your way; your son lives. The man believed the word that Yahshua spoke to him, and he went his way. 51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, saying, that his son lived. 52 So he inquired of them the hour when he began to amend. They said therefore to him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53 So the father knew that it was at that hour in which Yahshua said to him, Your son lives: and himself believed, and his whole house. 54 This is again the second sign that Yahshua did, having come out of Judea into Galilee.



John 5

After these things there was a feast of the Jews; and Yahshua went up to Jerusalem.


2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches. 3 In these lay a multitude of them that were sick, blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water: 4 for an angel went down at certain seasons into the pool, and troubled the water: whoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole, with whatever disease he was held. 5 And a certain man was there, who had been thirty-eight years in his infirmity. 6 When Yahshua saw him lying, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he says to him, Do you wish to be made whole? 7 The sick man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steps down before me. 8 Yahshua says to him, Arise, take up your bed, and walk. 9 And straightway the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked.


Now it was the sabbath on that day. 10 So the Jews said to him that was cured, It is the sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed. 11 But he answered them, He that made me whole, the same said to me, Take up your bed, and walk. 12 They asked him, Who is the man that said to you, Take up your bed, and walk? 13 But he that was healed knew not who it was; for Yahshua had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in the place. 14 Afterward Yahshua finds him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing happen to you. 15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Yahshua who had made him whole. 16 And for this cause the Jews persecuted Yahshua, because he did these things on the sabbath. 17 But Yahshua answered them, My Father works even until now, and I work. 18 For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only was breaking the sabbath, but also called Elohim his own Father, making himself equal with Yahweh.


19 Yahshua therefore answered and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father doing: for whatever things he does, these the Son also does in like manner. 20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself does: and greater works than these will he show him, that you may marvel. 21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom he will. 22 For neither does the Father judge any man, but he has given all judgment to the Son; 23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father that sent him. 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes him that sent me, has eternal life, and comes not into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. 25 Truly, truly, I say to you, The hour comes, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of Yahweh; and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself: 27 and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour comes, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, 29 and shall come forth; they that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.


30 I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me. 31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 It is another that bears witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesses of me is true. 33 You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. 34 But the witness which I receive is not from man: however I say these things, that you may be saved. 35 He was the lamp that burns and shines; and you were willing to rejoice for a season in his light. 36 But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father that sent me, he has borne witness of me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form. 38 And you have not his word remaining in you: for whom he sent, him you believe not. 39 Search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me; 40 and you will not come to me, that you may have life. 41 I receive not glory from men. 42 But I know you, that you have not the love of Elohim in yourselves. 43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive. 44 How can you believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that comes from the only Elohim you seek not? 45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words?



John 6

After these things Yahshua went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 2 And a great multitude followed him, because they beheld the signs which he did on them that were sick. 3 And Yahshua went up into the mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 4 Now the passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. 5 Yahshua therefore lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a great multitude comes to him, says to Philip, From where are we to buy bread, that these may eat? 6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, Two hundred denarii’s worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a little. 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, says to him, 9 There is a lad here, who has five barley loaves, and two fishes: but what are these among so many? 10 Yahshua said, Make the people sit down. Now here was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 Yahshua therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to them that were set down; likewise also of the fishes as much as they wanted. 12 And when they were filled, he says to his disciples, Gather up the broken pieces which remain over, that nothing be lost. 13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over to them that had eaten. 14 When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, This is of a truth the prophet that comes into the world.


15 Yahshua therefore perceiving that they were about to come and take him by force, to make him king, withdrew again into the mountain himself alone.


16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea; 17 and they entered into a boat, and were going over the sea to Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Yahshua had not yet come to them. 18 And the sea was rising by reason of a great wind that blew. 19 When therefore they had rowed about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Yahshua walking on the sea, and drawing near to the boat: and they were afraid. 20 But he says to them, It is I; be not afraid. 21 They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat: and straightway the boat was at the land where they were going.


22 On the next day the multitude that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, save one, and that Yahshua entered not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples went away alone 23 (however there came boats from Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the Rabbi had given thanks): 24 when the multitude therefore saw that Yahshua was not there, neither his disciples, they themselves got into the boats, and came to Capernaum, seeking Yahshua. 25 And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, Rabbi, when came you here? 26 Yahshua answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, You seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Work not for the food which perishes, but for the food which remains to eternal life, which the Son of man shall give to you: for him the Father, even Yahweh, has sealed. 28 They said therefore to him, What must we do, that we may work the works of Elohim? 29 Yahshua answered and said to them, This is the work of Elohim, that you believe on him whom he has sent. 30 They said therefore to him, What then do you for a sign, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, He gave them bread out of heaven to eat. 32 Yahshua therefore said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, It was not Moses that gave you the bread out of heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of Elohim is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world. 34 They said therefore to him, Rabbi, evermore give us this bread. 35 Yahshua said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall not hunger, and he that believes on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you, that you have seen me, and yet believe not. 37 All that which the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I am come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all that which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholds the Son, and believes on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.


41 The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, I am the bread which came down out of heaven. 42 And they said, Is not this Yahshua, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, I am come down out of heaven? 43 Yahshua answered and said to them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44 No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of Yahweh. Every one that has heard from the Father, and has learned, comes to me. 46 Not that any man has seen the Father, except he that is from Yahweh, he has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that a man may eat of it, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: yes and the bread which I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world.


52 The Jews therefore quarreled one with another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 53 Yahshua therefore said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have not life in yourselves. 54 He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is true meat indeed, and my blood is true drink indeed. 56 He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he that eats me, he also shall live because of me. 58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven: not as the fathers ate, and died; he that eats this bread shall live forever. 59 These things he said in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.


60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it? 61 But Yahshua knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said to them, Does this cause you to stumble? 62 What then if you should behold the Son of man ascending where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I have spoken to you are spirit, and are life. 64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Yahshua knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who it was that should betray him. 65 And he said, For this cause have I said to you, that no man can come to me, unless it is given to him of the Father.


66 Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Yahshua said therefore to the twelve, Would you also go away? 68 Simon Peter answered him, Teacher, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 And we have believed and know that you are the Holy One of Yahweh. 70 Yahshua answered them, Did not I choose you the twelve, and one of you is a devil? 71 Now he spoke of Judah the son of Simon Iscariot, for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
