John 7

And after these things Yahshua walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2 Now the feast of the Jews, the feast of tabernacles, was at hand. 3 His brethren therefore said to him, Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may behold your works which you do. 4 For no man does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, manifest yourself to the world. 5 For even his brethren did not believe on him. 6 Yahshua therefore says to them, My time has not yet come; but your time is always ready. 7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that its works are evil. 8 You go up to the feast: I am not yet going up to this feast; because my time is not yet fulfilled. 9 And having said these things to them, he remained still in Galilee.


10 But when his brethren were gone up to the feast, then went he also up, not publicly, but as it were in secret. 11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he? 12 And there was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him: some said, He is a good man; others said, Not so, but he leads the multitude astray. 13 Yet no man spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews.


14 But when it was now the middle of the feast Yahshua went up into the temple, and taught. 15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, How does this man know letters, having never learned? 16 Yahshua therefore answered them, and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man wills to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of Elohim, or whether I speak from myself. 18 He that speaks from himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet not one of you does the law? Why do you seek to kill me? 20 The multitude answered, You have a demon: who seeks to kill you? 21 Yahshua answered and said to them, I did one work, and you all marvel because of it. 22 Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers); and on the sabbath you circumcise a man. 23 If a man receives circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are you angry with me, because I made a man every whit whole on the sabbath? 24 Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.


25 Some therefore of them of Jerusalem said, Is not this he whom they seek to kill? 26 And lo, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is the Messiah? 27 However we know this man from where he is: but when the Messiah comes, no one knows from where he is. 28 Yahshua therefore cried in the temple, teaching and saying, you both know me, and know from where I am; and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom you know not. 29 I know him; because I am from him, and he sent me. 30 They sought therefore to take him: and no man laid his hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 But of the multitude many believed on him; and they said, When the Messiah shall come, will he do more signs than those which this man has done? 32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him; and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to take him. 33 Yahshua therefore said, yet a little while am I with you, and I go to him that sent me. 34 You shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, you cannot come. 35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, Where will this man go that we shall not find him? will he go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 What is this word that he said, You shall seek me, and shall not find me; and where I am, you cannot come?


37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Yahshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come to me and drink. 38 He that believes on me, as the Scripture has said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. 39 But this spoke he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet given; because Yahshua was not yet glorified. 40 Some of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is of a truth the prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Messiah. But some said, What, does the Messiah come out of Galilee? 42 Has not the Scripture said that the Messiah comes of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was? 43 So there arose a division in the multitude because of him. 44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.


45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said to them, Why did you not bring him? 46 The officers answered, A man never spoke in this manner. 47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, Are you also led astray? 48 Has any of the rulers believed on him, or of the Pharisees? 49 But this multitude that knows not the law are cursed. 50 Nicodemus says to them (he that came to him before, being one of them), 51 Does our law judge a man, except it first hear from himself and knows what he does? 52 They answered and said to him, Are you also of Galilee? Search, and see that out of Galilee arises no prophet.



John 8

53 [And they went every man to his own house: but Yahshua went to the mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery: and having set her in the middle, 4 they say to him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such: what then do you say of her? 6 And this they said, trying him, that they might have something to accuse him. But Yahshua stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. 7 But when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. 9 And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the oldest, even to the last: and Yahshua was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the middle. 10 And Yahshua lifted up himself, and said to her, Woman, where are they? Did no man condemn you? 11 And she said, No man, Master. And Yahshua said, neither do I condemn you: go your way: from now on sin no more.]


12 Again therefore Yahshua spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13 The Pharisees therefore said to him, You bear witness of yourself; your witness is not true. 14 Yahshua answered and said to them, Even if I bear witness of myself, my witness is true; for I know from where I came, and where I go; but you know not from where I come, or where I go. 15 You judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16 Yes and if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. 17 Yes and in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true. 18 I am he that bears witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me. 19 They said therefore to him, Where is your Father? Yahshua answered, You know neither me, nor my Father: if you knew me, you would know my Father also. 20 These words spoke he in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man took him; because his hour had not yet come.


21 He said therefore again to them, I go away, and you shall seek me, and shall die in your sin: where I go, you cannot come. 22 The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, that he says, Where I go, you cannot come? 23 And he said to them, You are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of the world. 24 I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins: for except you believe that I am he, you shall die in your sins. 25 They said therefore to him, Who are you? Yahshua said to them, Even that which I have also spoken to you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you: however he that sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these speak I to the world. 27 They perceived not that he spoke to them of the Father. 28 Yahshua therefore said, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things. 29 And he that sent me is with me; he has not left me alone; for I do always the things that are pleasing to him. 30 As he spoke these things, many believed on him.


31 Yahshua therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If you remain in my word, then are you truly my disciples; 32 and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered to him, We are Abraham’s seed, and have never yet been in bondage to any man: how say you, You shall be made free? 34 Yahshua answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Every one that commits sin is the bondservant of sin. 35 And the bondservant remains not in the house forever: the son remains forever. 36 If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s seed; yet you seek to kill me, because my word has not free course in you. 38 I speak the things which I have seen with my Father: and you also do the things which you heard from your father. 39 They answered and said to him, Our father is Abraham. Yahshua says to them, If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I heard from Yahweh; this did not Abraham. 41 You do the works of your father. They said to him, We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even Elohim. 42 Yahshua said to them, If Yahweh were your Father, you would love me: for I came forth and have come from Elohim, for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand my speech? Even because you cannot hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stands not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 But because I say the truth, you believe me not. 46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I say truth, why do you not believe me? 47 He that is of Yahweh hears the words of Yahweh: for this cause you hear them not, because you are not of Yahweh. 48 The Jews answered and said to him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan, and have a demon? 49 Yahshua answered, I have not a demon; but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me. 50 But I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeks and judges. 51 Truly, truly, I say to you, If a man keeps my word, he shall never see death. 52 The Jews said to him, Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets; and you say, If a man keeps my word, he shall never taste of death. 53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died: whom make you yourself? 54 Yahshua answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father who glorifies me; of whom you say, that he is your Elohim; 55 and you have not known him: but I know him; and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be like you, a liar: but I know him, and keep his word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it, and was glad. 57 The Jews therefore said to him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham? 58 Yahshua said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham was born, I am. 59 They took up stones therefore to cast at him: but Yahshua hid himself, and went out of the temple, and going through the middle of them went his way and so passed by.



John 9

And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth. 2 And his disciples     asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind? 3 Yahshua answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of Yahweh should be made manifest in him. 4 We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. 5 When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay, 7 and said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing. 8 The neighbors therefore, and they that saw him before time, that he was a beggar, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9 Others said, It is he: others said, No, but he is like him. He said, I am he. 10 They said therefore to him, How then were your eyes opened? 11 He answered, the man that is called Yahshua made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to Siloam, and wash: so I went away and washed, and I received sight. 12 And they said to him, Where is he? He says, I know not.


13 They bring to the Pharisees him that before time was blind. 14 Now it was the sabbath on the day when Yahshua made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15 Again therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight. And he said to them, He put clay upon my eyes, and I washed, and I see. 16 Some therefore of the Pharisees said, This man is not from Elohim, because he keeps not the sabbath. But others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such signs? And there was a division among them. 17 They say therefore to the blind man again, What do you say of him, in that he opened your eyes? And he said, He is a prophet. 18 The Jews therefore did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight, 19 and asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see? 20 His parents answered and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21 but how he now sees, we know not; or who opened his eyes, we know not: ask him; he is of age; he shall speak for himself. 22 These things said his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man should confess him to be the Messiah, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, lie is of age; ask him. 24 So they called a second time the man that was blind, and said to him, Give glory to Yahweh: we know that this man is a sinner. 25 He therefore answered, Whether he is a sinner, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26 They said therefore to him, What did he to you? How opened he your eyes? 27 He answered them, I told you even now, and you did not hear; why would you hear it again? Would you also become his disciples? 28 And they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple; but we are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that Elohim has spoken to Moses: but as for this man, we know not from where he is. 30 The man answered and said to them, Why, in this is the marvel, that you know not from where he is, and yet he opened my eyes. 31 We know that Elohim hears not sinners: but if any man is a worshiper of Elohim, and does his will, him he hears. 32 Since the world began it was never heard that any one opened the eyes of a man born blind. 33 If this man were not from Elohim, he could do nothing. 34 They answered and said to him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.


35 Yahshua heard that they had cast him out; and finding him, he said, Do you believe on the Son of Yahweh. 36 He answered and said, And who is he Rabbi, that I may believe on him? 37 Yahshua said to him, You have both seen him, and he it is that speak with you. 38 And he said, Rabbi, I believe. And he worshiped him. 39 And Yahshua said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may become blind. 40 Those of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and said to him, Are we also blind? 41 Yahshua said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin: but now you say, We see: your sin remains.
