thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden
these things from the wise and
understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

The gospels account for many stories where Jesus is reported knowing the thoughts and hearts of men. Yet, here we focus on those instances where the words listed above come straight from the lips of our Lord.
|From the Synoptic Gospels|
Be giving heed that you not be
doing your justice
before men to be beheld by them, otherwise you have no reward from your
in the heavens.
|On Private Prayer|
 And when you pray, be not as the hypocrites. For they philia-love to be praying [when] standing in the synagogues and in the street corners, in order that they be manifest to men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward.
 But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and having closed the door, pray to your father that [is] in secret, and your father who sees in secret will reward you
 But when you pray, do not babble like the nations, for they suppose that by their wordiness they will be heard.
 Be not as they, for your father knows what needs you have before you ask him.
 Therefore pray thusly:
Our father in the heavens,
 For if you allow men their shortcomings, your heavenly father will also allow you [yours].
 And if you do not allow men [theirs], neither will your father allow [you] your shortcomings.
|Do Not Worry|
|Matthew 6||Luke 12|
of this I say to you, be not concerning yourself about your psyche-life: what you shall eat, nor with what you
will clothe your body. Is not your psyche-life more than food and your body [more] than clothing?
he said to his disciples: Because of this I say to you: Be not being
for your psyche-life,
what you shall eat, nor for your body what you shall wear.
|Asking, Seeking, Knocking|
|Matthew 7||Luke 11|
, and it will be given to you; be
seeking, and you will find; be knocking, and it will be opened to you.
 Therefore everything that you wish that men be doing to you, you also be doing to them. For this is the law and the prophets.
And I say to you, Be
, and it will be given you; be seeking,
and you will find; be knocking, and it will be opened to you.
|A Tree & Its Fruit|
|Matthew 7||Luke 6|
Be giving heed from the
false-prophets, who come
to you in sheep's clothing, but inside are ravishing wolves.
 For [a] good tree
is not producing bad fruit, nor again [is a] bad tree
producing good fruit.
|Judgment of Pretenders|
Not everyone saying to me:
Lord Lord will enter
into the kingdom of the heavens, but the [one] doing the will of my
[is] in the heavens.
|Healing the Blind & Mute|
when Jesus went out from there two blind men followed him crying out
saying: Have mercy on us, son of David.
|Fear God, Not Man|
|Matthew 10||Luke 12|
do not fear them, for nothing is covered that will not be uncovered,
[nothing] secret that will not be known.
the myriads of the crowd were gathered, so as to be trampling each
began to be saying to his disciples first: Be guarding yourselves from
leaven, which is hypocrisy, of the Pharisees.
Jesus answered saying: I confess to you,
O father, Lord of heaven and earth,
that you have hidden these [things] from the wise and intelligent, and
revealed these [things] to the childish.
|Lord of the Sabbath|
Jesus went through [a] corn-field on
the Sabbath, and his disciples hungered, and began to be plucking the
I desire mercy and not [a] sacrifice.
you would not have condemned the blameless.
 For the son of man is Lord of the Sabbath.
|The Parable of the Sower & The Purpose of the Parables|
|Matthew 13||Mark 4||Luke 8|
 In that day when Jesus went out of the city he sat by the sea,
 and [a] great crowd gathered by him, so that having embarked he sat in [a] boat, and all the crowd stood on the shore.
 And he said to them many [things] in parables saying:
Behold the sower went out to be sowing.
 And among what he sowed some on the one hand fell by the road, and when the birds came they ate it.
 On the other hand [some] fell on the rocky soil where it did not have much earth, and immediately it sprang up because of not having depth of earth;
 so when the sun rose it was scorched, and because of not having root it was withered.
 On the other hand [some] fell among the thistles, and the thistles came up and choked it.
 On the other hand some fell on the good soil, and was giving fruit, on the one hand hundredfold, on the other sixtyfold, [and] on the other thirtyfold.
 The [one having] ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.
 And when his disciples came they said to him: Why do you speak in parables to them?
 But when he answered he said: To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of the heavens, but to those it is not given.
 For whoever has, it shall be given to him, and will be more than enough. But whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
 I speak to them in parables because of this: Because looking they do not look, and hearing they do not hear not understand.
 And the prophesy of Isaiah is fulfilled in them which said:
they will hear and will not understand
 For the heart of this people has grown
 But blessed are your eyes because they look, and [your] ears because they hear.
 For truly I say to you that many prophets and just men lusted to see what you look at and they did not see, and to hear and they did not hear.
 Therefore hear the parable of the sower.
 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand, the wicked [one] comes and carries off what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown by the road.
 And what was sown on the rocky soil, this is the one hearing the word and immediately receives it with joy,
 but it has no root in him, but is transitory, so when trouble or persecution comes to pass because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
 And what was sown in the thistles, this is the one hearing the word, and the concerns of the age and the guile of riches chokes the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
 But what was sown on the good soil, this is the [one] hearing the word and understanding, who indeed bears fruit and produces on the one hand [a] hundredfold, on the other sixty fold, [and] on the other thirty fold.
 And again he began to be teaching by the sea. And [an] exceedingly great crowd was gathered to him, so that having embarked he was sitting in [a] boat in the sea, and the crowd was on the land facing the sea.
 And he was teaching them many [things] in parables, and he was saying to them in his teaching:
 Be listening: Behold the [one] sowing came out to sow.
 And it came to pass while sowing some fell beside the road, and the birds came and devoured it.
 And other [seed] fell upon the rocky [places], where it was not having much soil, and immediately it sprang up because it was not having depth of earth.
 And when the sun rose it was burned up, and because it was not having root it was withered.
 And other [seed] fell into thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and it gave no fruit.
 And others fell into the good soil and coming up and growing it was giving fruit and it was bearing to thirty[fold] and within sixty and within hundred[fold].
he was saying: He who has ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.
 And when he came to be alone, those around him with the twelve were asking him with regard to the parables.
 And he was saying to them: To you the mystery of the kingdom of God has been given, to those outside all things come in parables,
 in order that
and may not see
And he says to them: You do not know this parable, how also will you know all the parables?
 The sower sows the word.
 But these are those beside the road, how the word is sown, and when they hear, immediately Satan comes and takes the word having been sown in them.
 And these being sown upon the rocky [places] are likewise, which when they hear the word, immediately they receive it with joy.
 And they have no root in themselves, but are temporary, then [when] tribulation or persecution comes because of the word, they stumble.
 And these are those being sown into the thorns, these are those having heard the word,
 and [when] the cares of the age and the deceitfulness of wealth and the lusts [about] the rest enter, they choke the word, and it becomes fruitless.
 And these are those having been sown upon the good soil, which hear the word and receive [it] and bear fruit in thirty and in sixty and in a hundred.
when [a] great crowd came together and those from every village
him, he said by parable:
|Breaking Human Traditions|
came to Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and scribes saying:
|Discerning the Sign of the Times|
|Matthew 16||Luke 12|
 And when the Pharisees and Sadducees came to him, testing him, they asked him to show them [a] sign out of heaven.
 But he answered them saying: When it has become late you say: Fair weather, for the sky is fiery red,
 And early, Today bad weather, for the sky is fiery red becoming gloomy. On the one hand you know how to discern the face of the sky, but you are unable [to] [discern] the sign of the times.
 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after [a] sign, and [a] sign will not be given to it except the sign of Jonah. And having left them he departed.
 But he was saying also to the crowds: Whenever you see the clouds rise from the west, straightway you say that [a] thunderstorm comes, and thus it comes to pass.
 Hypocrites, you know to examine the face of the earth and heaven, but this opportune-time you know not how to examine.
after six days Jesus took Peter and James and John his brother and
up to [a] high mountain by themselves.
|A Request for James & John|
|Matthew 20||Mark 10|
the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to him with her sons kneeling
[him] and asking
something from him.
James and John the sons of Zebedee came to him saying: Teacher, we
whatever we ask
[of you], you do for us.
|Marriage & the Resurrection|
|Matthew 22||Mark 12|
 In that day the Sadducees came to him, who say [there] is no resurrection, and they questioned him
 saying: Teacher, Moses said: If anyone die not having children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed to his brother.
 Now there were beside him seven brothers. And the first who married came to his end, and not having seed left his wife to his brother.
 Likewise also the second and the third until the seventh.
 Last of all the wife died.
 In the resurrection therefore whose of the seven is the wife? For all had her.
 But answering Jesus said to them: You are misled, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.
 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage,
 but are as the angels in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven't you read the [thing] spoken to you from God saying:
 I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob? He is not God of the dead but of the zoe-living .
 And hearing this the crowds were astounded at his teaching.
 And Saducees come to him, who say there is no resurrection, and asked him saying:
 Teacher, Moses wrote to us that:
If any brother die, and leave behind [a] wife and not leave children, that his brother should take the wife and raise up seed to his brother.
were seven brothers. And the first took [a] wife, and when he died he
am the God of
Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob?
 He is not God of the dead but of the zoe-living. You are greatly deceived.
|The Parable of the Fig Tree|
|Matthew 24||Mark 13||Luke 21|
 Learn from the fig tree the parable: When its branches already become tender and the leaves put forth, you know that summer is near.
 Thus you also when you see all these [things], you will know that it is near, [even] at the doors.
 Truly I say to you that this generation shall not pass away until all these [things] come to pass.
 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
But from the fig
tree learn the parable, When its branches have already become tender
put forth its leaves, you know that summer is at hand.
 Truly I say to you that this generation does not pass away until all these [things] come to pass.
 Heaven and [the] earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
 And he spoke to them [a] parable, Behold the fig and all the trees,
 when they already put out [leaves], seeing from yourselves you know that summer is already near.
 Likewise you also, when you see these [things] come to pass, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
 Truly I say to you that this generation shall not pass away until all come to pass.
 Heaven and earth may pass away, but my words will not pass away.
|Matthew 24||Mark 13||Luke 12|
that day and hour nobody knows, not even the angels of the heavens, nor
except the father only.
Concerning that day or that
hour no one knows,
neither the angels in heaven nor the son, except the father.
Let your loins be girded and
your lamps lit.
|The Faithful & Wise Slave|
|Matthew 24||Luke 12|
 Who therefore is the trustworthy and shrewd slave who the Lord appointed over his household to give them food at the proper-time ?
 Blessed is that slave who when his Lord comes he will find thus doing.
 Truly I say to you that he will appoint him over all his possessions.
 But if that evil slave should say in his heart: My Lord delays,
 and begins to be beating his fellow-slaves, eating and drinking with the drunks,
 the Lord of that slave will come in [an] hour which he knows not,
 and he will cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites. There will there be wailing and grinding of teeth.
Peter said to him: Lord, do you say to us this parable or to all?
|The Parable of the Ten Virgins|
 Then the kingdom of the heavens will be likened to ten virgins, who taking their lamps went out to meet the bridegroom.
 But five of them were foolish and five shrewd.
 For when the foolish took their lamps they did not take oil with them.
 But the shrewd took oil in vessels with their lamps.
 Now when the bridegroom delayed they all became drowsy and were sleeping.
 So in the middle of the night [a] cry came about: Behold the bridegroom, be going out to meet [him].
 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.
 So the foolish said to the shrewd: Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.
 But the shrewd answered saying: Never, there is not enough for us and you. Be going rather to the sellers and buy for yourselves.
While they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and the prepared went in with him into the wedding, and the door was shut.
 Later the rest of the virgins came saying: Lord, Lord, open to us.
 But answering he said: Truly I say to you I know you not.
 Be watching therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
|The Parable of the Talents/Ten Minas|
|Matthew 25||Luke 19|
 For likewise [a] man going on a journey called his own slaves and committed to them his possessions.
 And to one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to another one, each according to his own ability, and left.
 Straightway the [one] receiving five talents went and worked in them and gained another five.
 Likewise the [one receiving] five gained another two.
 But when [he] receiving one went forth he dug in [the] ground and hid his master's silver.
 Now after [a] long time the lord of those slaves comes and settles accounts with them.
And when [he] receiving the five talents came he brought another five talents saying: Lord, five talents have you given me, Behold I gained another five talents.
 His lord said to him: Excellent, good and trustworthy slave. Over little were you trustworthy, over much will I appoint you, Enter into the joy of your lord.
And when he [receiving] the two talents came he said: Lord, two talents have you given me. Behold I gained another two talents.
 His Lord said to him: Excellent, good and trustworthy slave, over little were you trustworthy, over much will I appoint you. Enter into the joy of your lord.
 But when [he] having received one talent also came he said: Lord, having known you, that you are [a] hard man, reaping where you did not sow, gathering whence you did not scatter,
 and being afraid, having gone I hid your talent in the ground. Behold you have your own.
 But answering his lord said to him: Wicked and troublesome slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow, and gather whence I did not scatter?
 You ought therefore to have given my silver to the bankers, and when I came I would have received mine own with interest.
 Take therefore from the talent and give it to him having the ten talents.
 For to him having all will more be given and it will overflow. But from him not having even what he has will be taken from him.
 And throw the worthless slave into the outer darkness. There will there be wailing and grinding of teeth.
 Now when they were hearing these [things] placed before [them] he spoke [a] parable, because of his being near Jerusalem and [because of] their supposing that immediately the kingdom of God is [about] to be hearing.
 He said therefore, A certain nobleman proceeded to [a] far country to receive to himself [a] kingdom and to return.
 So having called his ten slaves he gave to them ten minas and said to them: Make more when I come.
 Now his citizens were hating him, and sent ambassadors after him saying: We do not wish this [one] to be king over us.
 And it came to pass when he returned having received the kingdom he said these slaves be called to him whom he has given silver, in order that he might know who made what more.
 So the first came by saying: Lord, your mina has made you ten minas more.
 And he said to him: Excellent, O good slave, because you were become trustworthy in [the] least, be placed having authority over ten cities.
 And the second came saying: Your mina, O lord, made five minas.
 And he said also to this one: And you become over five cities.
 And the other came saying: Lord, behold your mina, which I have, put away, in [a] handkerchief.
 For I feared you, that you are [a] severe man, taking what you did not put, and reaping what you did not sow.
 He says to him: Out [of your] mouth will I judge you, O wicked slave. Had you not known that I am [a] severe man, taking what I did not put, and reaping what I did not sow?
 And why did you not give my silver to the bank? And I having come would have accomplished it with interest.
 And to those having stood by he said: Take from the mina and give it to the [one] having ten minas.
 And they say to him: Lord, he has ten minas.
 I say to you that to everyone having it will be given, but from the [one] not having, even what he has will be taken.
 Nevertheless these, my enemies having not wanted me to be king over them, lead here and slaughter them before me.
|The Plot Against Jesus|
 And it came to pass when Jesus finished all these words, he said to his disciples:
 You know that with two days the Passover comes to pass, and the son of man is given over to be crucified.
 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered in the courtyard of the chief priest being called Caiaphas.
 And they plotted in order that by stealth they may lay hold of and kill Jesus.
 But they were saying: Not on the festival day lest there be [a] riot among the people.
|Healing & Forgiving a Paralytic|
|Mark 2||Luke 5|
And having entered again into Capernaum
during the day it was heard that he
And it came to pass in one of
[those] days he
also was teaching, and there were seated Pharisees and law-teachers who
come from every village
and Judea and Jerusalem.
And power of the Lord was to him
to be healing.
Which is easier, to say: Your
sins have been forgiven you, or to
say: Be rising and be walking?
|The Parable of the Growing Seed|
 And he was saying: The kingdom of God
is thus, as [a] man throws the seed upon the earth
|Those Who Will Not Taste (Know) of Death|
1 And he saying to them: Truly I say to you that there are some of [those] standing here who will not taste of death* until they see the kingdom of God be come in power.
*note: the sense is not "taste a little bit", rather "experience something cognitively or emotionally, come to know something"
|The Rich Man|
|Mark 10||Luke 18|
when he went out into the road, [one] having run up and having knelt before him
asked him, Good teacher, what should I do in order that I may inherit eternal
 And one of the rulers asked him saying: Good teacher, what having done will I inherit eternal zoe-life?
 But Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? No one is good except one—God.
You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not falsely witness, be honoring your father and mother.
 But he said, All these [things] I have kept since youth.
 But Jesus answering said to him: Yet one [thing] you lack. Sell all as much as you have and distribute [it] to the poor, and you will have treasure in the heavens, and Come! Be following me.
But when he heard these [things] he was become deeply pained, for he was greatly rich.
 But seeing him Jesus said: How difficultly those having possessions enter into the kingdom of God.
 For it is easier for [a] camel to enter through [a] needle hole than [for] the rich to enter into the kingdom of God.
 But those who heard said: And who is able to be delivered?
 But he said: the [things] impossible with men are possible with God.
 But Peter said: Behold having left our own [things] we have followed you.
 So he said to them: Truly I say to you that there is no one who left houses or wives or brothers or parents or children because of the kingdom of God
 who would not receive much more in this opportune-time and in the eternity in the coming eternal zoe-life.
|Jesus in the Temple|
 And his parents were proceeding every year to Jerusalem to the festival of the Passover.
 And when twelve years came to pass, they having gone up [there] according to the custom of the festival,
 and having completed the days, as they were returning, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem, and his parents knew it not.
 But having thought him to be in their group of travelers they came [a] day's way, and [then] sought him among their relatives and acquaintances.
 And not having found him, they returned to Jerusalem seeking him.
 And it came to pass after three days they found him in the temple sitting in the midst of the teachers and hearing them and questioning them;
 and all hearing him were amazed upon his understanding and his answers.
 And seeing him they were astonished, and his mother said to him: Child, why have you done to us thusly? Behold your father and I being tormented were seeking you.
 And he said to them: Why were you seeking me? Do you not know that in the [things] of my father I must be?
 And they did not understand the word that he spoke to them.
 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was being subordinate to them. And his mother was keeping all these words in her heart.
And Jesus was progressing in wisdom and stature and favor with God and men.
|Showing the Light|
 But no one having lit [a] lamp hides it in [a] vessel or places it under [a] basket, but places it on [a] lampstand, that those coming in may see the light.
 For nothing is hidden that will not become manifest, nor hidden that will not be made known and shall come into manifestation.
 Be looking therefore how you hear; for whoever has, it will be given to him; and whoever has not, even what he supposes he has will be taken from him.
|Daughter of Faith|
…Now when he was withdrawing the crowd was pressing him.
 And [a] woman being in flow of blood
for twelve years, and having spent all her living, was not strong, being healed by
 And Jesus said: Who [is ]the [one] having grasped me? But all
denying it, Peter said: Master, the crowds come together and press upon us.
|The Mission of the Seventy-Two|
after these [things] the Lord commissioned another seventy and sent them by twos before his face
into every city and place where he was [about] to come.
|Rebuking the Pharisees|
when he spoke [a] Pharisee asked him to breakfast with him; so having
entered he reclined.
|The Narrow Door|
 And he was going through by city and town teaching and doing the journey to Jerusalem.
 But someone said to him: Lord, [are] few being saved? But he said to him:
 Be striving to enter through the narrow door, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be strong enough.
 When the master of the house arises and closes the door, and you begin to stand outside and to be knocking on the door saying: Lord, open to us, and answering he will say to you: I do not know whence you are.
 Then you will begin to be saying: We ate before you and drank, and in our streets you taught.
 And he will say to them: I do not know whence you are. Depart from me all [who] do injustice.
 There will there be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you cast out.
 And they will come from the east and the west and from north and south, and banquet in the kingdom of God.
 And behold the last will be first and the first will be last.
|The Parable of the Clever Steward|
 So he
said to his disciples: A certain man was rich who was having [a] steward, and
this [one] was slandered to him as squandering his possessions.
|More Warnings About the Pharisees|
 Now the Pharisees being philia-lovers of money heard all these [things], and were ridiculing him.
 And he said to them: You are those justifying yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts, for the [thing] exalted among men is [an] abomination before God.
|Jesus Weeps for Jerusalem|
 And as he drew near, seeing the city he wept over it,
 saying: If you [only] knew in this day the [things] towards peace—but now they are hidden from your eyes.
 For [the] days will come upon you and your enemies will cast up stakes for you and will surround you and attack you from all directions.
 And they will dash to the ground you and your children in you, and they will not leave stone upon stone in you, for you did not know the opportune-time [of your] visitation.
|Desolation of Jerusalem|
 But when you see Jerusalem circled by armies, then will you know that her desolation has drawn nigh.
 Then let those in the country not enter into her,
 for these are [the] days of vengeance for all having been written to be fulfilled.
 Woe to those with child and to those giving suck in those days, for it will be [a] great calamity upon the earth and wrath to this people,
 and they will fall by mouth of sword, and will be led captive into every nation, and Jerusalem will be trampled by the nations, until the season of the nations be fulfilled.
|Prediction of Simon's Denial|
Simon, behold Satan has requested to sift you [all] as wheat,
 Now they were also bringing two other criminals with him to be taken away.
 And when they came to the place called Cranion, here they crucified him and the evil-doers, one on the right and one on the left.
 * So distributing his garments they threw lots.
 And the people had stood observing. But the rulers were ridiculing [him] saying: He saved others, let him save himself, if this [one] is the Christ of God, the chosen.
 The soldiers having come also mocked him, bringing sour wine to him,
 and saying: If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.
 And there was also [an] inscription upon him: This [is] the king of the Jews.

 Now there was [a] man out of the Pharisees, [the]
name to him [was] Nicodemos, [a] ruler of the Jews.

 Now it
was necessary for him to be going through Samaria.

Jesus as the Light of the World
 So, again Jesus spoke to them saying: walk in darkness, but will have the light of zoe-lifeI am the light of the world. The [one] following me shall not.
 So the Pharisees said to him: You witness concerning yourself, your witness is not true.
 Jesus answered and said to them: And if I witness concerning myself, my witness is true, because I know from where I came and [to] where I depart. But you do not know from where I come or [to] where I depart.
 You judge according to the flesh, but I judge no one.
 But if I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but [it is] I and the father having sent me.
 And in your law it is written that the witness of two men is true.
 I am the [one] witnessing concerning myself, and the father having sent me witnesses concerning me.
 So they were saying to him, Where is your father? Jesus answered: You know neither me nor my father. If you had known me, you would have also known my father.
 These words he spoke in the treasury teaching in the temple. And no one arrested him, because his hour was not yet come.
Where Jesus Came From and Where He is Going
 So he
said to them again: I depart and you will seek me, and you will die in your
sins; where I depart you are not able to come.
Abraham's Children and the Devil's Children
Jesus was saying to the Jews having believed in him: If you abide in my word,
you are truly my disciples.
Jesus as the Good Shepherd
truly I say to you, the [one] not coming in through the gate into the sheep-pen
but coming up from elsewhere, that [one] is [a] thief and [a] robber.
The Festival of Dedication
 The Festival of Dedication then came to pass in Jerusalem. It was winter,
 and Jesus was walking in the temple in the porch of Solomon.
I said, You are gods?
 If he
called them "gods", to whom the word of God came, and the scripture
cannot be loosed,
Lazarus Raised From the Dead
 So Jesus, again being deeply moved in himself, comes to the tomb. Now it was [a] cave, and [a] stone was lying upon it.
 Jesus says: Remove the stone. Martha the sister of the [one] having died says to him: Lord, he stinks already, for it is the fourth [day].
 Jesus says to her: Did I not say to you that: If you believe, you will see the glory of God?
 So they removed the stone. Now Jesus lifted up his eyes and said: Father, I thank you that you heard me.
 For I have known that you always hear me, but because of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they believe that you have sent me.
 And having said these [things] he cried out with [a] great voice: Lazarus! Come out!
 And the [one] having been dead came out, his feet and hands having been bound with bandages, and his face was bound with [a] handkerchief. Jesus says to them, Loose him and let him be going.
Seekers of the Light
 The crowd therefore answered him: We heard from the law that the Christ abides to eternity, and how do you say that the son of man must be lifted up? Who is this son of man?
 Jesus therefore said to them: Yet [a] small time the light is with you. Be walking while you have the light, in order that the darkness not overtake you. And the [one] walking in the darkness does not know where he goes.
 While you have the light, be believing in the light, in order that you may become sons of light. Jesus spoke these [things] and having departed he was hidden from them.
Jesus' Final Public Words
 But Jesus cried out and said: The [one] believing in me does not believe in me but [rather] in the [one] having sent me,
 and the [one] beholding me beholds the [one] having sent me.
 I am light come into the world, in order that everyone believing in me not abide in darkness.
 And if anyone hear my words and not guard [them], I do not judge him, for I came not in order that I judge the world, but in order that I save the world.
 The [one] setting me aside and not receiving my words has [one] judging him: the word that I spoke—that will judge him in the last day.
 Because I have not spoken from myself, but the [one] having sent me, [the] father himself has given to me commandment what I should say and what I should speak.
 And I know that his commandment is eternal zoe-life. What therefore I speak, just as the father has spoken to me, thusly I speak.
Washing the Disciples Feet
 Now before the festival of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour came in order that he depart out of this world to the father, having agape-loved his own in the world, he agape-loved them to the end.
 And dinner coming to pass, the devil having already cast into the heart [of] Judas Simon Iscariot in order that he deliver him up,
 having known that the father gave to him everything into his hands, and that from God he had come and to God he returns,
 he arises from
dinner and puts [aside] his garments, and having taken [a] cloth he tied [it]
 Then he pours water into the basin
and began to be washing the disciples' feet and wiping [them] with the cloth
that he had tied around himself.
 He comes to Simon
Peter; he says to him: Lord, do you wash my feet?
answered and said to him: What I do you now you do not know, but you will know
after these [things].
 Peter says to him: You will not
wash my feet to eternity. Jesus answered him: If I do not wash you, you have no
part with me.
 Simon Peter says to him, Lord, not
only my feet but also my hands and head!
says to him, The [one] having bathed does not have need except [for] his feet
to be washed, but is wholly clean. And you [all] are clean, but not all [of you].
For he had known the [one] delivering him up; because of this he
said that not all [of you] are clean.
 When therefore he
washed their feet and took his garments and reclined again, he said to them: Do
you know what I have done to you?
therefore I the Teacher and the Lord washed your feet, you also ought to be
washing each other's feet.
 For I have given [the] example to you in order that just as I did to you, you do also.
16] Truly truly I say to you, the slave is not greater than his lord,
nor [the] sent [one] greater than the [one] having sent him.
 If you know these [things], blessed are you if you do them.
The Announcement of Jesus' Betrayal
 Not concerning all [of you] do I speak. I know whom I have chosen; but in order that the scripture be fulfilled:
The [one] gnawing my bread
Lifted up his heel against me . From now [on] I tell you before [it] comes to pass, in order that when it comes to pass you believe that I am [He].
 Truly truly I say to you, the [one] receiving whom I send receives me, and the [one] receiving me receives the [one] having sent me.
Love One Another
 [A] new commandment I give to you, that you be agape-loving one another; just as I agape-loved you, be agape-loving one another.
 By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have agape-love for one another.
Jesus' Parting Words to His Disciples
 Let not your heart be being troubled. Be believing
in God and be believing in me.
Teaching on the Holy Spirit
 If you agape-love me,
you will keep my commandments.
Dwell in Agape-Love
 Just as the father
agape-loved me, I also agape-loved you. Dwell in my agape-love.
The World's Hatred
the world hates you, you know that it has first hated me.
They hated me
 When the advocate comes that I will send to you from
beside the father—the spirit of truth that goes out from beside the father—that
[one] will testify concerning me;
 These [things] have I spoken to you in order that you not be stumbled.
 They will have you expelled from the synagogue; but [the] hour comes that everyone having killed you glory to be offering ministry to God.
 And they will do these [things] because they do not know the father nor me.
 But I have said these [things] to you in order that when their hour come you be reminded of them, because I have told you.
Jesus Prays for the Father to Glorify Him
 Jesus spoke these [things], and having lifted up his eyes to heavens he said: Father, the hour is come. Glorify your son, in order that the son glorify you.
 Just as you gave to him authority over all flesh, in order that all that you gave to him, he give to them eternal zoe-life.
 This is eternal zoe-life, that they know you the only true God and whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
 I glorified you upon the earth, having completed the work that you gave me in order that I do [it];
 and now glorify me, father, in your presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world was.
Jesus Prays for the Disciples
revealed your name to the men whom you gave to me out of the world. They were
yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
 And in their behalf do I make myself holy, in order that they also be made holy in [the] truth.
Jesus Prays for Believers Everywhere
not concerning these only do I ask,
but also concerning those believing in me through their word,
Jesus Questioned by Annas
 The chief-priest therefore asked Jesus concerning his disciples and his teaching.
 Jesus answered him: I have openly spoken to the world. I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where the Jews all gather, and I spoke nothing in secret.
 Why do you ask me? Ask those having heard what I spoke to them. Behold these know what I said to them.
 But when he spoke these [things] one of the officers standing by gave [a] blow to Jesus saying: Thus do you answer the chief-priest?
 Jesus answered him: If I spoke evil-ly, testify concerning the evil. But if well, why do you strike me?
 Annas therefore sent him bound to Caiaphas the chief-priest.
