13 No one has ascended into heaven but he who
descended from heaven, the Son of man.
14 And as Moses
lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted
15 that whoever
believes in him may have eternal life."
16 For God so
(agapao) the world that he gave his
only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal
17 For God sent
the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might
be saved through him.
18 He who believes
in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is
the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved
(agapao) darkness rather than light,
because their deeds were evil.
20 For every
one who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest
his deeds should be exposed.
21 But he who
does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that
his deeds have been wrought in God.
19 Jesus said to them,
"Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord,
but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the
Son does likewise.
20 For the Father
(phileo) the Son, and shows him all that he
himself is doing; and greater works than these will he show him, that you
21 For as the
Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life
to whom he will.
39 You search
the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and
it is they that bear witness to me;
40 yet you refuse
to come to me that you may have life.
41 I do not receive
glory from men.
42 But I know
that you have not the love (agape)
of God within you.
43 I have come
in my Father's name, and you do not receive me; if another comes in his
own name, him you will receive.
41 You do what
your father did." They said to him, "We were
not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God."
42 Jesus said to them, "If
God were your Father, you would love (agapao)
me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord,
but he sent me.
43 Why do you
not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.
14 I am the good
shepherd; I know my own and my own know me,
15 as the Father
knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And I have
other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they
will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.
17 For this reason
the Father loves (agapao)
me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.
18 No one takes
it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it
down, and I have power to take it again; this charge I have received from
23 And Jesus answered them,
The hour has come for the Son of man to be glorified.
24 Truly, truly,
I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it
remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
25 He who loves
(phileo) his life loses it, and he
who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
26 If any one
serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be
also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.
33 Little children, yet a little while I am
with you. You will seek me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you,
'Where I am going you cannot come.'
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you
(agapao) one another; even as I have
(agapao) you, that you also love
(agapao) one another.
35 By this all men will know that you are
my disciples, if you have love (agape)
for one another.
14 if you ask
anything in my name, I will do it.
15 "If you love
(agapao) me, you will keep my commandments.
16 And I will
pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you
17 even the Spirit
of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor
knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you.
18 "I will not
leave you desolate; I will come to you.
19 Yet a little
while, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because
I live, you will live also.
20 In that day
you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
21 He who has
my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves
(agapao) me; and he who loves
(agapao) me will be loved
(agapal) by my Father, and I will love
(agapao) him and manifest myself to
22 Judas (not
Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself
to us, and not to the world?"
23 Jesus answered
him, "If a man loves (agapao)
me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love
(agapao) him, and we will come to him
and make our home with him.
24 He who does
not love (agapao)
does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the
Father's who sent me.
25 "These things
I have spoken to you, while I am still with you.
26 But the Counselor,
the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you
all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
27 Peace I leave
with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
28 You heard
me say to you, 'I go away, and I will come to you.' If you loved
(agapao) me, you would have rejoiced,
because I go to the Father; for the Father is greater than I.
29 And now I
have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place, you
30 I will no
longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has
no power over me;
31 but I do as
the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love
(agapao) the Father. Rise, let us go
8 By this my Father
is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples.
9 As the Father
has loved (agapao)
me, so have I loved (agapao)
you; abide in my love (agape).
10 If you keep
my commandments, you will abide in my love
(agape), just as I have kept my Father's
commandments and abide in his love (agape).
11 These things
I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may
12 "This is my
commandment, that you love (agapao)
one another as I have loved (agapao)
13 Greater love
(agape) has no man than this, that
a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 You are my
friends if you do what I command you.
15 No longer
do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is
doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my
Father I have made known to you.
16 You did not
choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear
fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father
in my name, he may give it to you.
17 This I command
you, to love (agape)
18 "If the world
hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
19 If you were
of the world, the world would love (phileo)
its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the
world, therefore the world hates you.
26 In that day
you will ask in my name; and I do not say to you that I shall pray the
Father for you;
27 for the Father
himself loves (phileo)
you, because you have loved (phileo)
me and have believed that I came from the Father.
28 I came from
the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world
and going to the Father.
20 I do not pray
for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word,
21 that they
may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they
also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22 The glory
which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even
as we are one,
23 I in them
and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may
know that thou hast sent me and hast loved(agapao)
them even as thou hast loved (agapao)
24 Father, I
desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I
am, to behold my glory which thou hast given me in thy love
(agapao) for me before the foundation
of the world.
25 O righteous
Father, the world has not known thee, but I have known thee; and these
know that thou hast sent me.
26 I made known
to them thy name, and I will make it known, that the love
(agape) with which thou hast loved
(agapao) me may be in them, and I in
15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus
said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John,
do you love (agapao)
me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes,
Lord; you know that I love (phileo)
you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."
16 A second time he said to him, "Simon,
son of John, do you love (agapao)
me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know
that I love (phileo)
you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep."
17 He said to him the third time, "Simon,
son of John, do you love (phileo)
me?" Peter was grieved because he said to
him the third time, "Do you love
And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love
(phileo) you." Jesus said to him, "Feed
18 Truly, truly,
I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where
you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another
will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go."
