receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who
41 The [one] receiving [a]
prophet in the name of [a] prophet will receive [a] prophet's reward,
and the [one] receiving [a] just [one] in the name of [a] just [one]
will receive [a] just [one]'s reward.
42 And whoever gives only [a]
glass of cold water to one of these little
[ones] in the name of [a] disciple, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
|38 John said to him: Teacher, we saw someone in
your name casting out demons, who follows us not, and we forbid him,
for he did not follow us.
39 But Jesus said: Be
not forbidding him, for there is no one who does [a] power in my name
and is able at once to speak evil of me;
For whoever is not against us is for us. 41 For whoever give you [a] cup
in [my] name, because you are of Christ, truly I say to you that he
will not lose his reward.
|12 And on the first day of the feast of
unleavened bread, when they were sacrificing the Passover, his
disciples say to him: Where do you want that we having departed should
prepare in order that you eat the Passover?
13 And he sends two of his disciples and saying to them: Be going into the city, and
[a] man will meet you carrying [a] vessel of water;
And where he goes in, say to the house-master that: The teacher says:
Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?
And he will show you [a] great upper room furnished [and] ready, and
there prepare for us.
16 And the disciples went out and came into the city and found just as
he said to them, and they prepared the passover.
|36 Now one of the Pharisees was asking him that
he eat with him. And having entered into the house of the Pharisee he
sat at table.
37 And behold there was in the city [a] certain sinner woman, and
having known that he dined in the house of the Pharisee, having brought
[an] alabaster flask of perfume
38 and having stood behind by his feet weeping, with the tears she
began to rain upon his feet, and with the hairs of her head she was
wiping [them] off, and was kissing his feet and anointing [them] with
39 Now when the Pharisee who invited him saw he said in himself saying:
If this [one] was [a] prophet, he would have known who and what sort of
woman who handles him, that she is [a] sinner.
40 And answering Jesus said to him: Simon, I have something to
say to you. But he [said]: Teacher, speak, tell.
41 There were two
who owed something to [a] moneylender. The [one] owed five hundred
denarii, the other fifty.
They not having [it] he gave them both grace. Who of them therefore
will agape-love him more?
43 Answering, Simon said: I assume that to whom he gave the greater
grace. So he said to him: You
have answered rightly.
44 And having turned to the woman he said to Simon: Do you see this woman? I
entered into your house, [and] water for
me upon [my] feet is not given; but she with tears rained upon my feet
and with her hair wiped them off.
You have not given me [a] kiss, but she from when I came in was not
ceasing to be kissing my feet.
You have not anointed my head with oil, but she with perfume has
anointed my feet,
for the sake of which, I say to you, her many sins are forgiven,
because she agape-loved much. For to whom is forgiven little,
48 So he said to her: Your
sins are forgiven.
49 And those dining with him began to be saying among themselves: Who
is this, who also forgives sins?
50 But he said to the woman: Your
faith has saved you. Be going in peace.
|19 But a certain man was rich,
and he had put on purple garments and fine linen enjoying himself each
But a certain poor [man] by name Lazarus had been cast to his gate
being covered with ulcerous sores.
And he was lusting to be filled from that falling from the table of the
rich [one]; but even the dogs coming were licking his ulcerous sores.
Now it came to pass the poor [man] died and was gathered by the angels
to Abraham's lap;
but the rich [man] also died and was buried.
And in Hades
lifting up his eyes, being in torment, he sees Abraham from afar and
Lazarus in his lap,
and having called out he said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me and
send Lazarus in order that he dip the tip of his finger in water and
cool my tongue, for I suffer torment in this flame.
25 But Abraham said: Child,
remember that you received your good [things] in your zoe-life, and likewise Lazarus the
evil. But now he is encouraged, and you suffer torment.
26 And in all those
[things] between you [people] and us [a] great chasm is
fixed, so that those wishing to go down from here to you be not able,
nor from there to us may not cross over.
But he said: I ask you
therefore, Father, in order that you may sent him to my fathers house,
28 for I have five
brothers, that he may warn them, that they also not come to this place
But Abraham says: They have Moses and the prophets, let him hear from them.
But he said: No, father Abraham, but if someone proceed from [the] dead
to them: they would repent.
But he said to them: If they do not hear Moses and the prophets,
neither would they be persuaded if someone rise from the dead.
|1 And on the third day [a] wedding came to pass
in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2 And both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding.
3 And having lack of wine the mother of Jesus says to him: They do not
4 And Jesus says to her: What
[concern is that] to me and to you, lady? My hour has not yet come.
5 His mother says to the servants: Whatever he says to you, do.
6 Now six stone water
jars were standing there according to the purification rites of the
Jews, each holding two or three measures.
7 Jesus says to them: Fill
jars with water. And they filled them until full.
8 And he says to them: Now
draw [some] and be bringing [it] to the headwaiter. So
they brought [it].
9 Now as the headwaiter tasted the water
that has become wine, and did not know from where it is, but the
servants knew, those who have drawn the water,
the headwaiter calls the bridegroom
10 and says to him: Every man first puts [out] the good wine, and when
they are drunk [puts out] the inferior. You have kept the good wine
11 This beginning of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee
and revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
|1 Now there was [a] man out of the Pharisees,
[the] name to him [was] Nicodemos, [a] ruler of the Jews.
2 This [one] came to him in [the] night and said to him: Rabbi, we know
that you have come [a] teacher from God, for no one is able to be doing
these signs that you are doing unless God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said to him: Truly truly I say to you, if
someone not be begotten from above, he is not able to see the
kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus says to him: How is [a] man able to be begotten being old?
Is he able to enter into his mother's belly [a] second time and be
5 Jesus answered: Truly
truly I say to you, if someone not be begotten out of water
he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is begotten out of the flesh is flesh,
and that which is begotten out of the spirit is spirit.
You should not marvel that I said to you, You must [all] be begotten from above.
blows where it wants, and you do not know whence it is coming and where
it is going, in this manner is everyone who has been begotten out of the spirit.
With a Samaritan Woman
|4 Now it was necessary for him to be going
5 So he comes into [a] city of Samaria, that is being called Suchar,
near the piece of land that Jacob gave to Joseph his son.
6 Now the well of Jacob was there. So Jesus having become weary from
the journey was sitting by the well. It was [about] [the] sixth [hour].
7 [A] woman from Samaria comes to draw water.
Jesus says to her: Give
me [some] to drink.
8 For his disciples had departed into the city, that they buy food.
9 So the Samaritan woman says to him: How do you being [a] Jew ask to
drink from me who is [a] Samaritan woman? (For the Jews do not have
dealings with the Samaritans.)
10 Jesus answered and said to her: If you had known the gift of
God and who is the [one] saying to you: Give me [some] to drink, you
would have asked
him and he would have given to you zoe-livingwater.
11 She says to him: Lord, you have no bucket and the well is deep;
whence then do you get the zoe-living water?
12 Are you greater than our father Jacob who gave
the well to us and he himself drank from it and his sons and his
13 Jesus answered and said to her: Everyone drinking from this water will
but whoever drinks from the water
that I will give to him, he will notthirst for eternity, but the water
that I will give to him will become in him [a] well of water
to eternal zoe-life.
15 The woman says to him: Lord, give me this water,
that I not be thirsting nor be coming here to be drawing [water].
16 He says to her: Be
going, call your husband and come here.
17 The woman answered and said: I do not have [a] husband. Jesus says
to her: You said
well: I do not have [a] husband.
For you have had five husbands, and whom you now have is not your
husband. This truly you have said.
19 The woman says to him: Lord, I perceive that you are [a] prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in these mountains, and you [people] say that
in Jerusalem is the place where [one] must be worshipping.
21 Jesus says to her: Be
believing me, lady, that [an] hour comes when neither in these
mountains nor in Jerusalem will you [people] worship the father.
You [people] worship what you do not know, we worship what we do know,
because salvation is from the Jews.
But an hour comes and now is when the true worshippers will worship the
father in spirit and truth, for indeed the father seeks such [to be]
his worshipping [ones].
God is spirit, and [his] worshipping [ones] must be worshipping in
spirit and truth.
25 The woman says to him: We know that [a] Messiah is coming, the [one]
being called. When that [one] comes, he will declare to us everything.
26 Jesus says to her: I
am [he], the [one] speaking to you.
About the Spirit
|37 Now in the last day of the festival Jesus
stood and cried out saying: If
anyone thirst, he must be coming to me and drinking.
The [one] believing in me, just as the scripture said:
will flow from his belly.
