John Chapter 1

John 1:1 (NIV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:2 (NIV)

He was with God in the beginning.

John 1:3 (NIV)

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

John 1:4 (CJB)

In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind.

John 1:5 (NASB)

The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 1:6 (AMP)

There came a man sent from God, whose name was John.

John 1:7 (NKJV)

This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe.

John 1:8 (NIV)

He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

John 1:9 (HCSB)

The true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.

John 1:10 (CJB)

10 He was in the world — the world came to be through him — yet the world did not know him.

John 1:11 (NASB)

11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.

John 1:12 (NASB)

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

John 1:13 (AMP)

13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]

John 1:14 (NASB)

14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:15 (NASB)

15 John *testified about Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’”

John 1:16 (NIV)

16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.

John 1:17 (NASB)

17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.

John 1:18 (CJB)

18 No one has ever seen God; but the only and unique Son, who is identical with God and is at the Father’s side — he has made him known.

John 1:19 (NKJV)

19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

John 1:20 (CJB)

20 he was very straightforward and stated clearly, “I am not the Messiah.”

John 1:21 (NIV)

21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.”

John 1:22 (NIV)

22 Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”

John 1:23 (NIV)

23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’”

John 1:24 (NASB)

24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.

John 1:25 (AMP)

25 And they asked him, Why then are you baptizing if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?

John 1:26 (NKJV)

26 John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know.

John 1:27 (NIV)

27 He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”

John 1:28 (NASB)

28 These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

John 1:29 (NKJV)

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

John 1:30 (NASB)

30 “This is He on behalf of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’

John 1:31 (NIV)

31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”

John 1:32 (NASB)

32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him.

John 1:33 (NASB)

33 “I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’

John 1:34 (CJB)

34 And I have seen and borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

John 1:35 (NASB)

35 Again the next day John was standing with two of his disciples,

John 1:36 (NIV)

36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

John 1:37 (NIV)

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.

John 1:38 (NIV)

38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?”

John 1:39 (CJB)

39 He said to them, “Come and see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and remained with him the rest of the day—it was about four o’clock in the afternoon.

John 1:40 (NIV)

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus.

John 1:41 (NKJV)

41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ).

John 1:42 (AMP)

42 Andrew then led (brought) Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, You are Simon son of John. You shall be called Cephas—which translated is Peter [Stone].

John 1:43 (NIV)

43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”

John 1:44 (AMP)

44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the same city as Andrew and Peter.

John 1:45 (NIV)

45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote–Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

John 1:46 (NKJV)

46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

John 1:47 (NIV2011)

47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”

John 1:48 (NASB)

48 Nathanael *said to Him, “How do You know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”

John 1:49 (NIV)

49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.”

John 1:50 (NIV)

50 Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that.”

John 1:51 (NKJV)

51 And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

John Chapter 2

John 2:1 (NKJV)

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

John 2:2 (NIV)

and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.

John 2:3 (NIV)

When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

John 2:4 (NKJV)

Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.”

John 2:5 (NIV)

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

John 2:6 (CJB)

Now six stone water-jars were standing there for the Jewish ceremonial washings, each with a capacity of twenty or thirty gallons.

John 2:7 (CJB)

Yeshua told them, “Fill the jars with water,” and they filled them to the brim.

John 2:8 (NIV)

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so,

John 2:9 (CJB)

The man in charge tasted the water; it had now turned into wine! He did not know where it had come from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew. So he called the bridegroom

John 2:10 (CJB)

10 and said to him, “Everyone else serves the good wine first and the poorer wine after people have drunk freely. But you have kept the good wine until now!”

John 2:11 (NIV)

11 This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.

John 2:12 (NIV)

12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.

John 2:13 (NIV)

13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

John 2:14 (NIV)

14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.

John 2:15 (NASB)

15 And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables;

John 2:16 (NKJV)

16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!”

John 2:17 (NIV)

17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

John 2:18 (NIV)

18 Then the Jews demanded of him, “What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”

John 2:19 (CJB)

19 Yeshua answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.”

John 2:20 (NKJV)

20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”

John 2:21 (NASB)

21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body.

John 2:22 (NIV)

22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

John 2:23 (NIV)

23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name.

John 2:24 (CJB)

24 But he did not commit himself to them, for he knew what people are like —

John 2:25 (CJB)

25 that is, he didn’t need anyone to inform him about a person, because he knew what was in the person’s heart.

John Chapter 3

John 3:1 (NIV)

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council.

John 3:2 (NIV)

He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

John 3:3 (NIV)

In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

John 3:4 (NKJV)

Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

John 3:5 (NKJV)

Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

John 3:6 (NASB)

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

John 3:7 (NKJV)

Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

John 3:8 (NIV)

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

John 3:9 (NASB)

Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be?”

John 3:10 (NKJV)

10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?

John 3:11 (NASB)

11 “Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.

John 3:12 (NIV)

12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?

John 3:13 (NIV)

13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven–the Son of Man.

John 3:14 (NASB)

14 “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;

John 3:15 (NKJV)

15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NASB)

16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:17 (NIV)

17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:18 (NIV)

18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:19 (NKJV)

19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

John 3:20 (NASB)

20 “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

John 3:21 (NASB)

21 “But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

John 3:22 (NKJV)

22 After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized.

John 3:23 (AMP)

23 But John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, for there was an abundance of water there, and the people kept coming and being baptized.

John 3:24 (NIV)

24 (This was before John was put in prison.)

John 3:25 (NKJV)

25 Then there arose a dispute between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purification.

John 3:26 (NASB)

26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified, behold, He is baptizing and all are coming to Him.”

John 3:27 (NASB)

27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given him from heaven.

John 3:28 (CJB)

28 You yourselves can confirm that I did not say I was the Messiah, but that I have been sent ahead of him.

John 3:29 (CJB)

29 The bridegroom is the one who has the bride; but the bridegroom’s friend, who stands and listens to him, is overjoyed at the sound of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine is now complete.

John 3:30 (NASB)

30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.

John 3:31 (CJB)

31 “He who comes from above is above all. He who is from the earth is from the earth and talks from an earthly point of view; he who comes from heaven is above all.

John 3:32 (CJB)

32 He testifies about what he has actually seen and heard, yet no one accepts what he says!

John 3:33 (NKJV)

33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.

John 3:34 (AMP)

34 For since He Whom God has sent speaks the words of God [proclaims God’s own message], God does not give Him His Spirit sparingly or by measure, but boundless is the gift God makes of His Spirit!

John 3:35 (NASB)

35 “The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand.

John 3:36 (NIV)

36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.”

John Chapter 4

John 4:1 (NIV2011)

Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John—

John 4:2 (NIV)

although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.

John 4:3 (NIV2011)

So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.

John 4:4 (CJB)-M

This meant that he had to pass through Samaria.

John 4:5 (AMP)

And in doing so, He arrived at a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the tract of land that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

John 4:6 (NASB)

and Jacob’s well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

John 4:7 (NIV)

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”

John 4:8 (AMP)

For His disciples had gone off into the town to buy food—

John 4:9 (NIV)

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)

John 4:10 (AMP)

10 Jesus answered her, If you had only known and had recognized God’s gift and Who this is that is saying to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him [instead] and He would have given you living water.

John 4:11 (NIV)

11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?

John 4:12 (NIV)

12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?”

John 4:13 (NASB)

13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again;

John 4:14 (NASB)

14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”

John 4:15 (AMP)

15 The woman said to Him, Sir, give me this water, so that I may never get thirsty nor have to come [continually all the way] here to draw.

John 4:16 (AMP)

16 At this, Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband and come back here.

John 4:17 (AMP)

17 The woman answered, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have spoken truly in saying, I have no husband.

John 4:18 (AMP)

18 For you have had five husbands, and the man you are now living with is not your husband. In this you have spoken truly.

John 4:19 (NKJV)

19 The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.

John 4:20 (NIV)

20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

John 4:21 (NIV)

21 Jesus declared, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

John 4:22 (CJB)

22 You people don’t know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation comes from the Jews.

John 4:23 (NIV)

23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

John 4:24 (NASB)

24 “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

John 4:25 (NIV)

25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”

John 4:26 (CJB)

26 Yeshua said to her, “I, the person speaking to you, am he.”

John 4:27 (NASB)

27 At this point His disciples came, and they were amazed that He had been speaking with a woman, yet no one said, “What do You seek?” or, “Why do You speak with her?”

John 4:28 (CJB)

28 So the woman left her water-jar, went back to the town and said to the people there,

John 4:29 (CJB)

29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I’ve ever done. Could it be that this is the Messiah?”

John 4:30 (NIV)

30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him.

John 4:31 (AMP)

31 Meanwhile, the disciples urged Him saying, Rabbi, eat something.

John 4:32 (NASB)

32 But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.”

John 4:33 (NIV)

33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”

John 4:34 (NASB)

34 Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.

John 4:35 (NASB)

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 for harvest.

John 4:36 (NASB)

36 “Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

John 4:37 (AMP)

37 For in this the saying holds true, One sows and another reaps.

John 4:38 (NIV)

38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”

John 4:39 (NIV)

39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.”

John 4:40 (NIV)

40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days.

John 4:41 (NIV)

41 And because of his words many more became believers.

John 4:42 (NIV)

42 They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”

John 4:43 (AMP)

43 But after these two days Jesus went on from there into Galilee—

John 4:44 (NIV)

44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.)

John 4:45 (NIV)

45 When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. They had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, for they also had been there.

John 4:46 (NKJV)

46 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.

John 4:47 (NIV)

47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.

John 4:48 (NIV)

48 “Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”

John 4:49 (NKJV)

49 The nobleman said to Him, “Sir, come down before my child dies!”

John 4:50 (NKJV)

50 Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your son lives.” So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.

John 4:51 (NIV)

51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.

John 4:52 (CJB)

52 So he asked them at what time he had gotten better; and they said, “The fever left him yesterday at one o’clock in the afternoon.”

John 4:53 (NIV)

53 Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So he and all his household believed.

John 4:54 (NKJV)

54 This again is the second sign Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee.

John Chapter 5

John 5:1 (AMP)

Later on there was a Jewish festival (feast) for which Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

John 5:2 (NKJV)

Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.

John 5:4 (NASB)

for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.]

John 5:5 (NKJV)

Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years.

John 5:6 (NKJV)

When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”

John 5:7 (NASB)

The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

John 5:8 (NKJV)

Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”

John 5:9 (NIV)

At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath,

John 5:10 (NKJV)

10 The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, “It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.”

John 5:11 (NKJV)

11 He answered them, “He who made me well said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’”

John 5:12 (NKJV)

12 Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?”

John 5:13 (CJB)

13 But the man who had been healed didn’t know who it was, because Yeshua had slipped away into the crowd.

John 5:14 (NIV)

14 Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”

John 5:15 (NIV)

15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.

John 5:16 (NASB)

16 For this reason the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.

John 5:17 (NIV)

17 Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.”

John 5:18 (NIV)

18 For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

John 5:19 (NKJV)

19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.

John 5:20 (NASB)

20 “For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.

John 5:21 (NKJV)

21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.

John 5:22 (NASB)

22 “For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son,

John 5:23 (NIV)

23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

John 5:24 (NASB)

24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

John 5:25 (NASB)

25 “Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

John 5:26 (NIV)

26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself.

John 5:27 (NKJV)

27 and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.

John 5:28 (NIV)

28 “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice

John 5:29 (NIV)

29 and come out–those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.

John 5:30 (NASB)

30 “I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

John 5:31 (NIV)

31 “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid.

John 5:32 (CJB)

32 But there is someone else testifying on my behalf, and I know that the testimony he is making is valid —

John 5:33 (AMP)

33 You yourselves have sent [an inquiry] to John and he has been a witness to the truth.

John 5:34 (NIV)

34 Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved.

John 5:35 (NIV)

35 John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.

John 5:36 (NASB)

36 “But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.

John 5:37 (NIV)

37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,

John 5:38 (NIV)

38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.

John 5:39 (NASB)

39 “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me;

John 5:40 (NIV)

40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

John 5:41 (NIV)

41 “I do not accept praise from men,

John 5:42 (NIV)

42 but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.

John 5:43 (NIV)

43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.

John 5:44 (NIV)

44 How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?

John 5:45 (NIV)

45 “But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.

John 5:46 (NASB)

46 “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.

John 5:47 (NASB)

47 “But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”

John Chapter 6

John 6:1 (CJB)

Some time later, Yeshua went over to the far side of Lake Kinneret (that is, Lake Tiberias),

John 6:2 (CJB)

and a large crowd followed him, because they had seen the miracles he had performed on the sick.

John 6:3 (NASB)

Then Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples.

John 6:4 (NIV)

The Jewish Passover Feast was near.

John 6:5 (NIV)

When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”

John 6:6 (NIV)

He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

John 6:7 (NIV)

Philip answered him, “Eight months’ wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

John 6:8 (NIV)

Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up,

John 6:9 (CJB)

“There’s a young fellow here who has five loaves of barley bread and two fish. But how far will they go among so many?”

John 6:10 (NIV)

10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them.

John 6:11 (NIV)

11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.

John 6:12 (NIV)

12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”

John 6:14 (NIV)

14 After the people saw the miraculous sign that Jesus did, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.”

John 6:15 (NIV)

15 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.

John 6:16 (NIV)

16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,

John 6:17 (NIV)

17 where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them.

John 6:18 (NIV)

18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.

John 6:19 (NIV)

19 When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified.

John 6:20 (NIV)

20 But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.”

John 6:21 (NIV)

21 Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.

John 6:22 (NIV)

22 The next day the crowd that had stayed on the opposite shore of the lake realized that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not entered it with his disciples, but that they had gone away alone.

John 6:23 (NIV)

23 Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.

John 6:24 (NIV)

24 Once the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus.

John 6:25 (AMP)

25 And when they found Him on the other side of the lake, they said to Him, Rabbi! When did You come here?

John 6:26 (NIV)

26 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.

John 6:27 (NIV)

27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

John 6:28 (NIV)

28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

John 6:29 (NIV)

29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

John 6:30 (NIV)

30 So they asked him, “What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?

John 6:31 (NIV)

31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

John 6:32 (NIV)

32 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.

John 6:33 (NIV)

33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

John 6:34 (NASB)

34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

John 6:35 (NIV)

35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.

John 6:36 (NIV)

36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.

John 6:37 (NIV)

37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.

John 6:38 (NIV)

38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

John 6:39 (NIV)

39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

John 6:40 (NIV)

40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

John 6:41 (NIV)

41 At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”

John 6:42 (NIV)

42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”

John 6:43 (NIV)

43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

John 6:44 (NIV)

44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:45 (NIV)

45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.

John 6:46 (NIV)

46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.

John 6:47 (NIV)

47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.

John 6:48 (NIV)

48 I am the bread of life.

John 6:49 (NIV)

49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.

John 6:50 (NIV)

50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.

John 6:51 (NIV)

51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

John 6:52 (NIV)

52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

John 6:53 (NIV)

53 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

John 6:54 (NIV)

54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:55 (NIV)

55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.

John 6:56 (NIV)

56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.

John 6:57 (NIV)

57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.

John 6:58 (NIV)

58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.”

John 6:59 (NIV)

59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

John 6:60 (NIV)

60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?”

John 6:61 (NIV)

61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you?

John 6:62 (NIV)

62 What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before!

John 6:63 (NIV)

63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.

John 6:64 (NIV)

64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him.

John 6:65 (NIV)

65 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him.”

John 6:66 (NIV)

66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

John 6:67 (NKJV)

67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”

John 6:68 (NIV)

68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

John 6:69 (NASB)

69 “We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.”

John 6:70 (NIV)

70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!”

John 6:71 (NIV)

71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)

John Chapter 7

John 7:1 (NASB)

After these things Jesus was walking in Galilee, for He was unwilling to walk in Judea because the Jews were seeking to kill Him.

John 7:2 (AMP)

Now the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was drawing near.

John 7:3 (AMP)

So His brothers said to Him, Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples [there] may also see the works that You do. [This is no place for You.]

John 7:4 (NIV)

No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.”

John 7:5 (NIV)

For even his own brothers did not believe in him.

John 7:6 (NIV)

Therefore Jesus told them, “The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right.

John 7:7 (NASB)

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil.

John 7:8 (CJB)

You, go on up to the festival; as for me, I am not going up to this festival now, because the right time for me has not yet come.”

John 7:9 (AMP)

Having said these things to them, He stayed behind in Galilee.

John 7:10 (NIV)

10 However, after his brothers had left for the Feast, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.

John 7:11 (NIV)

11 Now at the Feast the Jews were watching for him and asking, “Where is that man?”

John 7:12 (NASB)

12 There was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him; some were saying, “He is a good man”; others were saying, “No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray.”

John 7:13 (NIV)

13 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews.

John 7:14 (NIV)

14 Not until halfway through the Feast did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach.

John 7:15 (NIV)

15 The Jews were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having studied?”

John 7:16 (NIV)

16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me.

John 7:17 (NIV)

17 If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.

John 7:18 (NIV)

18 He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.

John 7:19 (NASB)

19 “Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law? Why do you seek to kill Me?”

John 7:20 (NIV)

20 “You are demon-possessed,” the crowd answered. “Who is trying to kill you?”

John 7:21 (NIV)

21 Jesus said to them, “I did one miracle, and you are all astonished.

John 7:22 (NIV)

22 Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a child on the Sabbath.

John 7:23 (NIV)

23 Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath?

John 7:24 (NASB)

24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”

John 7:25 (NASB)

25 So some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, “Is this not the man whom they are seeking to kill?

John 7:26 (NIV)

26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Christ?

John 7:27 (CJB)

27 Surely not — we know where this man comes from; but when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he comes from.”

John 7:28 (CJB)

28 Whereupon Yeshua, continuing to teach in the Temple courts, cried out, “Indeed you do know me! And you know where I’m from! And I have not come on my own! The One who sent me is real. But him you don’t know!

John 7:29 (NIV)

29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”

John 7:30 (CJB)

30 At this, they tried to arrest him; but no one laid a hand on him; because his time had not yet come.

John 7:31 (CJB)

31 However, many in the crowd put their trust in him and said, “When the Messiah comes, will he do more miracles than this man has done?”

John 7:32 (NIV)

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him.

John 7:33 (NIV)

33 Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I go to the one who sent me.

John 7:34 (NIV)

34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”

John 7:35 (CJB)

35 The Judeans said to themselves, “Where is this man about to go, that we won’t find him? Does he intend to go to the Greek Diaspora and teach the Greek-speaking Jews?

John 7:36 (NIV)

36 What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”

John 7:37 (NIV)

37 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.

John 7:38 (NIV)

38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

John 7:39 (NIV)

39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

John 7:40 (NIV)

40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.”

John 7:41 (AMP)

41 Others said, This is the Christ (the Messiah, Anointed One)! But some said, What? Does the Christ come out of Galilee?

John 7:42 (AMP)

42 Does not the Scripture tell us that the Christ will come from the offspring of David and from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?

John 7:43 (AMP)

43 So there arose a division and dissension among the people concerning Him.

John 7:44 (CJB)

44 Some wanted to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him.

John 7:45 (NIV)

45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him in?”

John 7:46 (CJB)

46 The guards replied, “No one ever spoke the way this man speaks!”

John 7:47 (NIV)

47 “You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted.

John 7:48 (NIV)

48 “Has any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him?

John 7:49 (NASB)

49 “But this crowd which does not know the Law is accursed.”

John 7:50 (NIV)

50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked,

John 7:51 (NIV)

51 “Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is doing?”

John 7:52 (NIV)

52 They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”

John 7:53 (AMP)

53 And they went [back], each to his own house.

John Chapter 8

John 8:1 (NIV)

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

John 8:2 (NIV)

At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them.

John 8:3 (NIV)

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group

John 8:4 (NIV)

and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.

John 8:5 (NIV)

In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”

John 8:6 (CJB)

They said this to trap him, so that they might have ground for bringing charges against him; but Yeshua bent down and began writing in the dust with his finger.

John 8:7 (CJB)

When they kept questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “The one of you who is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

John 8:8 (CJB)

Then he bent down and wrote in the dust again.

John 8:9 (NIV)

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.

John 8:10 (NKJV)

10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

John 8:11 (NIV)

11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

John 8:12 (NIV)

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:13 (NIV)

13 The Pharisees challenged him, “Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid.”

John 8:14 (NIV)

14 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going.

John 8:15 (NIV)

15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.

John 8:16 (NIV)

16 But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.

John 8:17 (NIV)

17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid.

John 8:18 (NIV)

18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.”

John 8:19 (NASB)

19 So they were saying to Him, “Where is Your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father; if you knew Me, you would know My Father also.”

John 8:20 (NIV)

20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple area near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his time had not yet come.

John 8:21 (NASB)

21 Then He said again to them, “I go away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come.”

John 8:22 (NIV)

22 This made the Jews ask, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, ‘Where I go, you cannot come’?”

John 8:23 (NIV)

23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

John 8:24 (NIV)

24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be], you will indeed die in your sins.”

John 8:25 (NKJV)

25 Then they said to Him, “Who are You?” And Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning.

John 8:26 (NASB)

26 “I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world.”

John 8:27 (NASB)

27 They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father.

John 8:28 (NIV)

28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [the one I claim to be] and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.

John 8:29 (NASB)

29 “And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”

John 8:30 (NASB)

30 As He spoke these things, many came to believe in Him.

John 8:31 (NASB)

31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;

John 8:32 (NASB)

32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

John 8:33 (NASB)

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”

John 8:34 (NASB)

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.

John 8:35 (NIV)

35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.

John 8:36 (NASB)

36 “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:37 (NASB)

37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.

John 8:38 (NIV)

38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you do what you have heard from your father.”

John 8:39 (NKJV)

39 They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.

John 8:40 (NKJV)

40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.

John 8:41 (CJB)

41 You are doing the things your father does.” “We’re not illegitimate children!” they said to him. “We have only one Father — God!”

John 8:42 (CJB)

42 Yeshua replied to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me; because I came out from God; and now I have arrived here. I did not come on my own; he sent me.

John 8:43 (NIV)

43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.

John 8:44 (NIV)

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

John 8:45 (NIV)

45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

John 8:46 (NASB)

46 “Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?

John 8:47 (NASB)

47 “He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”

John 8:48 (NIV)

48 The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?”

John 8:49 (NASB)

49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.

John 8:50 (CJB)

50 I am not seeking praise for myself. There is One who is seeking it, and he is the judge.

John 8:51 (NIV)

51 I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”

John 8:52 (NIV)

52 At this the Jews exclaimed, “Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that if anyone keeps your word, he will never taste death.

John 8:53 (NIV)

53 Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?”

John 8:54 (NIV)

54 Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.

John 8:55 (NASB)

55 and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I will be a liar like you, but I do know Him and keep His word.

John 8:56 (NASB)

56 “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”

John 8:57 (NASB)

57 So the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”

John 8:58 (NASB)

58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”

John 8:59 (NKJV)

59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

John Chapter 9

John 9:1 (NKJV)

Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.

John 9:2 (NASB)

And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?”

John 9:3 (NKJV)

Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.

John 9:4 (NKJV)

I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

John 9:5 (NKJV)

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

John 9:6 (NKJV)

When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.

John 9:7 (NKJV)

And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.

John 9:8 (NKJV)

Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”

John 9:9 (NIV)

Some claimed that he was. Others said, “No, he only looks like him.” But he himself insisted, “I am the man.”

John 9:10 (NKJV)

10 Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”

John 9:11 (NKJV)

11 He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”

John 9:12 (NKJV)

12 Then they said to him, “Where is He?” He said, “I do not know.”

John 9:13 (NKJV)

13 They brought him who formerly was blind to the Pharisees.

John 9:14 (NIV)

14 Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath.

John 9:15 (NKJV)

15 Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to them, “He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.”

John 9:16 (NASB)

16 Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, “This man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath.” But others were saying, “How can a man who is a sinner perform such signs?” And there was a division among them.

John 9:17 (NIV)

17 Finally they turned again to the blind man, “What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened.” The man replied, “He is a prophet.”

John 9:18 (NIV)

18 The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents.

John 9:19 (NASB)

19 and questioned them, saying, “Is this your son, who you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?”

John 9:20 (NASB)

20 His parents answered them and said, “We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;

John 9:21 (NIV)

21 But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.”

John 9:22 (AMP)

22 His parents said this because they feared [the leaders of] the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone should acknowledge Jesus to be the Christ, he should be expelled and excluded from the synagogue.

John 9:23 (NIV)

23 That was why his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”

John 9:24 (CJB)

24 So a second time they called the man who had been blind; and they said to him, “Swear to God that you will tell the truth! We know that this man is a sinner.”

John 9:25 (CJB)

25 He answered, “Whether he’s a sinner or not I don’t know. One thing I do know: I was blind, now I see.”

John 9:26 (CJB)

26 So they said to him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?”

John 9:27 (NKJV)

27 He answered them, “I told you already, and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become His disciples?”

John 9:28 (NIV)

28 Then they hurled insults at him and said, “You are this fellow’s disciple! We are disciples of Moses!

John 9:29 (NIV)

29 We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.”

John 9:30 (NIV)

30 The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.

John 9:31 (NASB)

31 “We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.

John 9:32 (NASB)

32 “Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person born blind.

John 9:33 (AMP)

33 If this Man were not from God, He would not be able to do anything like this.

John 9:34 (AMP)

34 They retorted, You were wholly born in sin [from head to foot]; and do you [presume to] teach us? So they cast him out [threw him clear outside the synagogue].

John 9:35 (NKJV)

35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?”

John 9:36 (NASB)

36 He answered, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?”

John 9:37 (NIV)

37 Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

John 9:38 (NASB)

38 And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him.

John 9:39 (AMP)

39 Then Jesus said, I came into this world for judgment [as a Separator, in order that there may be separation between those who believe on Me and those who reject Me], to make the sightless see and to make those who see become blind.

John 9:40 (AMP)

40 Some Pharisees who were near, hearing this remark, said to Him, Are we also blind?

John 9:41 (AMP)

41 Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin; but because you now claim to have sight, your sin remains. [If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but because you insist, We do see clearly, you are unable to escape your guilt.]

John Chapter 10

John 10:1 (NIV)

“I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.

John 10:2 (NIV)

The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep.

John 10:3 (NIV)

The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

John 10:4 (NASB)

“When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.

John 10:5 (NASB)

“A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.”

John 10:6 (AMP)

Jesus used this parable (illustration) with them, but they did not understand what He was talking about.

John 10:7 (NIV)

Therefore Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

John 10:8 (NIV)

All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.

John 10:9 (NIV)

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.

John 10:10 (NASB)

10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

John 10:11 (NIV)

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

John 10:12 (NKJV)

12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.

John 10:13 (AMP)

13 Now the hireling flees because he merely serves for wages and is not himself concerned about the sheep [cares nothing for them].

John 10:14 (NASB)

14 “I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,

John 10:15 (NKJV)

15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

John 10:16 (NIV)

16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.

John 10:17 (NKJV)

17 Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

John 10:18 (NIV)

18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

John 10:19 (NASB)

19 A division occurred again among the Jews because of these words.

John 10:20 (NIV)

20 Many of them said, “He is demon-possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?”

John 10:21 (NIV)

21 But others said, “These are not the sayings of a man possessed by a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”

John 10:22 (CJB)-M

22 Then came Hanukkah in Jerusalem. It was winter,

John 10:23 (NIV)

23 and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade.

John 10:24 (NKJV)

24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

John 10:25 (NASB)

25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me.

John 10:26 (NASB)

26 “But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.

John 10:27 (NKJV)

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

John 10:28 (NIV)

28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.

John 10:29 (NIV)

29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

John 10:30 (NIV)

30 I and the Father are one.”

John 10:31 (NIV)

31 Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him,

John 10:32 (NIV)

32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

John 10:33 (NIV)

33 “We are not stoning you for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

John 10:34 (NIV)

34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods’?

John 10:35 (NKJV)

35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),

John 10:36 (NIV)

36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?

John 10:37 (NASB)

37 “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;

John 10:38 (NIV)

38 But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”

John 10:39 (CJB)

39 One more time they tried to arrest him, but he slipped out of their hands.

John 10:40 (NKJV)

40 And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was baptizing at first, and there He stayed.

John 10:41 (NASB)

41 Many came to Him and were saying, “While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true.”

John 10:42 (NIV)

42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.

John Chapter 11

John 11:1 (NIV)

Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.

John 11:2 (AMP)

This Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped His feet with her hair. It was her brother Lazarus who was [now] sick.

John 11:3 (NIV)

So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”

John 11:4 (NKJV)

When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

John 11:5 (AMP)

Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. [They were His dear friends, and He held them in loving esteem.]

John 11:6 (NIV)

Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.

John 11:7 (NKJV)

Then after this He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.”

John 11:8 (NKJV)

The disciples said to Him, “Rabbi, lately the Jews sought to stone You, and are You going there again?”

John 11:9 (NASB)

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

John 11:10 (NIV)

10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light.”

John 11:11 (NIV)

11 After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”

John 11:12 (NIV)

12 His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.”

John 11:13 (NIV)

13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.

John 11:14 (NASB)

14 So Jesus then said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead,

John 11:15 (NIV)

15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”

John 11:16 (AMP)

16 Then Thomas, who was called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, Let us go too, that we may die [be killed] along with Him.

John 11:17 (AMP)

17 So when Jesus arrived, He found that he [Lazarus] had already been in the tomb four days.

John 11:18 (NIV)

18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem,

John 11:19 (NIV)

19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother.

John 11:20 (NIV)

20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.

John 11:21 (NIV)

21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

John 11:22 (NIV)

22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”

John 11:23 (NIV)

23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”

John 11:24 (NIV)

24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

John 11:25 (NIV)

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

John 11:26 (NIV)

26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

John 11:27 (CJB)

27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.”

John 11:28 (NASB)

28 When she had said this, she went away and called Mary her sister, saying secretly, “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.”

John 11:29 (NIV)

29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him.

John 11:30 (NASB)

30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met Him.

John 11:31 (NIV)

31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.

John 11:32 (NIV)

32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

John 11:33 (NIV)

33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.

John 11:34 (NIV)

34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.

John 11:35 (NIV)

35 Jesus wept.

John 11:36 (AMP)

36 The Jews said, See how [tenderly] He loved him!

John 11:37 (NIV)

37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”

John 11:38 (NIV)

38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.

John 11:39 (AMP)

39 Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the dead man, exclaimed, But Lord, by this time he [is decaying and] throws off an offensive odor, for he has been dead four days!

John 11:40 (NIV)

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”

John 11:41 (NIV)

41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.

John 11:42 (NIV)

42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

John 11:43 (NIV)

43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”

John 11:44 (AMP)

44 And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face. Jesus said to them, Free him of the burial wrappings and let him go.

John 11:46 (NASB)

46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them the things which Jesus had done.

John 11:47 (AMP)

47 So the chief priests and Pharisees called a meeting of the council (the Sanhedrin) and said, What are we to do? For this Man performs many signs (evidences, miracles).

John 11:48 (NASB)-M

48 “If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will see no more need for us will come and take away both (our place of control over the people) and (our position of control over the Jewish nation).”

John 11:49 (NASB)

49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all,

John 11:50 (NIV)

50 You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.”

John 11:51 (NIV)

51 He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation,

John 11:52 (AMP)

52 And not only for the nation but also for the purpose of uniting into one body the children of God who have been scattered far and wide.

John 11:53 (CJB)

53 From that day on, they made plans to have him put to death.

John 11:54 (NIV)

54 Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews. Instead he withdrew to a region near the desert, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples.

John 11:55 (NIV)

55 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, many went up from the country to Jerusalem for their ceremonial cleansing before the Passover.

John 11:56 (NIV)

56 They kept looking for Jesus, and as they stood in the temple area they asked one another, “What do you think? Isn’t he coming to the Feast at all?”

John 11:57 (AMP)

57 Now the chief priests and Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he should report it to them, so that they might arrest Him.

John Chapter 12

John 12:1 (NIV)

Six days before the Passover, Jesus arrived at Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.

John 12:2 (NIV)

Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him.

John 12:3 (NIV)

Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

John 12:4 (AMP)

But Judas Iscariot, the one of His disciples who was about to betray Him, said,

John 12:5 (CJB)

“This perfume is worth a year’s wages! Why wasn’t it sold and the money given to the poor?”

John 12:6 (CJB)

Now he said this not out of concern for the poor, but because he was a thief — he was in charge of the common purse and used to steal from it.

John 12:7 (NLT2)

Jesus replied, “Leave her alone. She did this in preparation for my burial.

John 12:8 (CJB)

You always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”

John 12:9 (NIV)

Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.

John 12:10 (NASB)

10 But the chief priests planned to put Lazarus to death also;

John 12:11 (NIV)

11 for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him.

John 12:12 (AMP)

12 The next day a vast crowd of those who had come to the Passover Feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.

John 12:13 (NIV)

13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel!”

John 12:14 (AMP)

14 And Jesus, having found a young donkey, rode upon it, [just] as it is written in the Scriptures,

John 12:15 (AMP)

15 Do not fear, O Daughter of Zion! Look! Your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!

John 12:16 (NIV)

16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him.

John 12:17 (NASB)

17 So the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to testify about Him.

John 12:18 (CJB)

18 It was because of this too that the crowd came out to meet him — they had heard that he had performed this miracle.

John 12:19 (NIV)

19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”

John 12:20 (NIV)

20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the Feast.

John 12:21 (AMP)

21 These came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and they made this request, Sir, we desire to see Jesus.

John 12:22 (AMP)

22 Philip came and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip together [went] and told Jesus.

John 12:23 (AMP)

23 And Jesus answered them, The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified and exalted.

John 12:24 (AMP)

24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest.

John 12:25 (NIV)

25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

John 12:26 (NKJV)

26 If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

John 12:27 (AMP)

27 Now My soul is troubled and distressed, and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour [of trial and agony]? But it was for this very purpose that I have come to this hour [that I might undergo it].

John 12:28 (NASB)

28 “Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

John 12:29 (AMP)

29 The crowd of bystanders heard the sound and said that it had thundered; others said, An angel has spoken to Him!

John 12:30 (AMP)

30 Jesus answered, This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sake.

John 12:31 (CJB)

31 Now is the time for this world to be judged, now the ruler of this world will be expelled.

John 12:32 (AMP)

32 And I, if and when I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross], will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself.

John 12:33 (NASB)

33 But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.

John 12:34 (CJB)

34 The crowd answered, “We have learned from the Torah that the Messiah remains forever. How is it that you say the Son of Man has to be ‘lifted up’? Who is this ‘Son of Man’?”

John 12:35 (NIV)

35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going.

John 12:36 (NKJV)

36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them.

John 12:37 (NIV)

37 Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him.

John 12:38 (NIV)

38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: “Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

John 12:39 (NIV)

39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:

John 12:40 (AMP)

40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened and benumbed their [callous, degenerated] hearts [He has made their minds dull], to keep them from seeing with their eyes and understanding with their hearts and minds and repenting and turning to Me to heal them.

John 12:41 (NIV)

41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him.

John 12:42 (NASB)

42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue;

John 12:43 (NASB)

43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.

John 12:44 (NIV)

44 Then Jesus cried out, “When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.

John 12:45 (NASB)

45 “He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me.

John 12:46 (NASB)

46 “I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

John 12:47 (NASB)

47 “If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.

John 12:48 (NASB)

48 “He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.

John 12:49 (NASB)

49 “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.

John 12:50 (CJB)

50 And I know that his command is eternal life. So what I say is simply what the Father has told me to say.”

John Chapter 13

John 13:1 (NIV2011)

It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

John 13:2 (NASB)

During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him,

John 13:3 (NIV)

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;

John 13:4 (NIV)

so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.

John 13:5 (NIV)

After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

John 13:6 (NIV)

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

John 13:7 (NIV)

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

John 13:8 (NIV)

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

John 13:9 (NASB)

Simon Peter *said to Him, “Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.”

John 13:10 (NASB)

10 Jesus *said to him, “He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.

John 13:11 (NIV)

11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

John 13:12 (NIV)

12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.

John 13:13 (AMP)

13 You call Me the Teacher (Master) and the Lord, and you are right in doing so, for that is what I am.

John 13:14 (NIV)

14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.

John 13:15 (NIV)

15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.

John 13:16 (NIV)

16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.

John 13:17 (NIV)

17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

John 13:18 (NIV)

18 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: ‘He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me.’

John 13:19 (NIV)

19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.

John 13:20 (NASB)

20 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”

John 13:21 (NIV)

21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me.”

John 13:22 (NIV)

22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.

John 13:23 (NIV)

23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

John 13:24 (NIV)

24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”

John 13:25 (NIV)

25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”

John 13:26 (NIV)

26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon.

John 13:27 (NIV)

27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. “What you are about to do, do quickly,” Jesus told him,

John 13:28 (NIV)

28 but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.

John 13:29 (NIV)

29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor.

John 13:30 (NIV)

30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.

John 13:31 (NLT2)

31 As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, “The time has come for the Son of Man to enter into his glory, and God will be glorified because of him.

John 13:32 (CJB)

32 If the Son has glorified God, God will himself glorify the Son, and will do so without delay.

John 13:33 (NASB)

33 “Little children, I am with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’

John 13:34 (NIV)

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

John 13:35 (NIV)

35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13:36 (AMP)

36 Simon Peter said to Him, Lord, where are You going? Jesus answered, You are not able to follow Me now where I am going, but you shall follow Me afterwards.

John 13:37 (AMP)

37 Peter said to Him, Lord, why cannot I follow You now? I will lay down my life for You.

John 13:38 (NIV)

38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!

John Chapter 14

John 14:1 (NASB)

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.

John 14:2 (NKJV)

In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:3 (NKJV)

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

John 14:4 (CJB)

Furthermore, you know where I’m going; and you know the way there.”

John 14:5 (NIV)

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

John 14:6 (NIV)

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:7 (NIV)

If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

John 14:8 (NIV)

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

John 14:9 (NIV)

Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

John 14:10 (NASB)

10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.

John 14:11 (NIV)

11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.

John 14:12 (NASB)

12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

John 14:13 (NASB)

13 “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14 (NASB)

14 “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

John 14:15 (NASB)

15 “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

John 14:16 (NKJV)

16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever–

John 14:17 (NKJV)

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

John 14:18 (NASB)

18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:19 (NASB)

19 “After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.

John 14:20 (AMP)

20 At that time [when that day comes] you will know [for yourselves] that I am in My Father, and you [are] in Me, and I [am] in you.

John 14:21 (NKJV)

21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

John 14:22 (NKJV)

22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?”

John 14:23 (NASB)

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.

John 14:24 (NIV)

24 He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

John 14:25 (NIV)

25 “All this I have spoken while still with you.

John 14:26 (NASB)

26 “But the Helper, 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 said to you.

John 14:27 (7KB)

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. The peace I give is a gift which the world cannot give. So do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid.

John 14:28 (NIV)

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

John 14:29 (NIV)

29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.

John 14:30 (AMP)

30 I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.]

John 14:31 (NIV)

31 but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me. “Come now; let us leave.

John Chapter 15

John 15:1 (NIV)

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.

John 15:2 (NIV)

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

John 15:3 (NIV)

You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.

John 15:4 (NKJV)

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

John 15:5 (NIV)

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:6 (AMP)

If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.

John 15:7 (NASB)

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

John 15:8 (AMP)

When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.

John 15:9 (NASB)

“Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.

John 15:10 (NASB)

10 “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

John 15:11 (NKJV)

11 These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.

John 15:12 (NKJV)

12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

John 15:13 (NIV)

13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14 (NASB)

14 “You are My friends if you do what I command you.

John 15:15 (NKJV)

15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

John 15:16 (NASB)

16 “You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.

John 15:17 (NASB)

17 “This I command you, that you love one another.

John 15:18 (NASB)

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.

John 15:19 (NASB)

19 “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.

John 15:20 (NIV)

20 Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

John 15:21 (CJB)

21 But they will do all this to you on my account, because they don’t know the One who sent me.

John 15:22 (CJB)

22 “If I had not come and spoken to them, they wouldn’t be guilty of sin; but now, they have no excuse for their sin.

John 15:23 (CJB)

23 Whoever hates me hates my Father also.

John 15:24 (CJB)

24 If I had not done in their presence works which no one else ever did, they would not be guilty of sin; but now, they have seen them and have hated both me and my Father.

John 15:25 (NKJV)

25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’

John 15:26 (NKJV)

26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

John 15:27 (AMP)

27 But you also will testify and be My witnesses, because you have been with Me from the beginning.

John Chapter 16

John 16:1 (CJB)

“I have told you these things so that you won’t be caught by surprise.

John 16:2 (AMP)

They will put you out of (expel you from) the synagogues; but an hour is coming when whoever kills you will think and claim that he has offered service to God.

John 16:3 (NASB)

“These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me.

John 16:4 (CJB)

But I have told you this, so that when the time comes for it to happen, you will remember that I told you. I didn’t tell you this at first, because I was with you.

John 16:5 (NIV)

“Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’

John 16:6 (NASB)

“But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.

John 16:7 (NASB)

“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

John 16:8 (NASB)

“And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;

John 16:9 (NIV)

in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me;

John 16:10 (NIV)

10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;

John 16:11 (NIV)

11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.

John 16:12 (NASB)

12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.

John 16:13 (NASB)

13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

John 16:14 (NASB)

14 “He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.

John 16:15 (NASB)

15 “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.

John 16:16 (NIV)

16 “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”

John 16:17 (NIV)

17 Some of his disciples said to one another, “What does he mean by saying, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going to the Father’?”

John 16:18 (NIV)

18 They kept asking, “What does he mean by ‘a little while’? We don’t understand what he is saying.”

John 16:19 (NIV)

19 Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, “Are you asking one another what I meant when I said, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me’?

John 16:20 (NASB)

20 “Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy.

John 16:21 (NKJV)

21 A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

John 16:22 (NKJV)

22 Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.

John 16:23 (NKJV)

23 And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.

John 16:24 (NIV)

24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

John 16:25 (NIV)

25 “Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father.

John 16:26 (NIV)

26 In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf.

John 16:27 (NASB)

27 for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father.

John 16:28 (NASB)

28 “I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; I am leaving the world again and going to the Father.”

John 16:29 (NIV)

29 Then Jesus’ disciples said, “Now you are speaking clearly and without figures of speech.

John 16:30 (NASB)

30 “Now we know that You know all things, and have no need for anyone to question You; by this we believe that You came from God.”

John 16:31 (NASB)

31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe?

John 16:32 (NIV)

32 “But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.

John 16:33 (NIV)

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John Chapter 17

John 17:1 (NIV)

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.

John 17:2 (NIV)

For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.

John 17:3 (CJB)

And eternal life is this: to know you, the one true God, and him whom you sent, Yeshua the Messiah.

John 17:4 (CJB)

“I glorified you on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.

John 17:5 (NIV)

And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

John 17:6 (NASB)

“I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.

John 17:7 (NIV)

Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.

John 17:8 (NKJV)

For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.

John 17:9 (NKJV)

I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

John 17:10 (CJB)

10 Indeed, all I have is yours, and all you have is mine, and in them I have been glorified.

John 17:11 (NIV)

11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name–the name you gave me–so that they may be one as we are one.

John 17:12 (NIV)

12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

John 17:13 (CJB)

13 But now, I am coming to you; and I say these things while I am still in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.

John 17:14 (CJB)

14 “I have given them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world — just as I myself do not belong to the world.

John 17:15 (NIV)

15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

John 17:16 (NASB)

16 “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

John 17:17 (NKJV)

17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

John 17:18 (AMP)

18 Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.

John 17:19 (CJB)

19 On their behalf I am setting myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of the truth.

John 17:20 (NIV)

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,

John 17:21 (NASB)

21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.

John 17:22 (NASB)

22 “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;

John 17:23 (NASB)

23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

John 17:24 (NKJV)

24 Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

John 17:25 (NKJV)

25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.

John 17:26 (NIV)

26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

John Chapter 18

John 18:1 (NIV)

When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.

John 18:2 (NIV)

Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.

John 18:3 (NIV)

So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.

John 18:4 (NKJV)

Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”

John 18:5 (NKJV)

They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them.

John 18:6 (NIV)

When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

John 18:7 (NASB)

Therefore He again asked them, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus the Nazarene.”

John 18:8 (AMP)

Jesus answered, I told you that I am He. So, if you want Me [if it is only I for Whom you are looking], let these men go their way.

John 18:9 (NIV)

This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: “I have not lost one of those you gave me.”

John 18:10 (NKJV)

10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.

John 18:11 (NKJV)

11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?”

John 18:12 (NIV)

12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him

John 18:13 (NIV)

13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.

John 18:14 (NASB)

14 Now Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people.

John 18:15 (NIV)

15 Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest’s courtyard,

John 18:16 (NASB)

16 but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought Peter in.

John 18:17 (NASB)

17 Then the slave-girl who kept the door *said to Peter, “You are not also one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He *said, “I am not.”

John 18:18 (NIV)

18 It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.

John 18:19 (NIV)

19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.

John 18:20 (NASB)

20 Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world; I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all the Jews come together; and I spoke nothing in secret.

John 18:21 (NASB)

21 “Why do you question Me? Question those who have heard what I spoke to them; they know what I said.”

John 18:22 (NASB)

22 When He had said this, one of the officers standing nearby struck Jesus, saying, “Is that the way You answer the high priest?”

John 18:23 (NKJV)

23 Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?”

John 18:24 (NKJV)

24 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

John 18:25 (NASB)

25 Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. So they said to him, “You are not also one of His disciples, are you?” He denied it, and said, “I am not.”

John 18:26 (NIV)

26 One of the high priest’s servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, challenged him, “Didn’t I see you with him in the olive grove?”

John 18:27 (NIV)

27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.

John 18:28 (AMP)

28 Then they brought Jesus from Caiaphas into the Praetorium (judgment hall, governor’s palace). And it was early. They themselves did not enter the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled (become ceremonially unclean), but might be fit to eat the Passover [supper].

John 18:29 (NIV)

29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, “What charges are you bringing against this man?”

John 18:30 (NIV)

30 “If he were not a criminal,” they replied, “we would not have handed him over to you.”

John 18:31 (NIV)

31 Pilate said, “Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law.” “But we have no right to execute anyone,” the Jews objected.

John 18:32 (NIV)

32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.

John 18:33 (NASB)

33 Therefore Pilate entered again into the Praetorium, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”

John 18:34 (NASB)

34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or did others tell you about Me?”

John 18:35 (NASB)

35 Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You to me; what have You done?”

John 18:36 (NASB)

36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”

John 18:37 (NASB)

37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

John 18:38 (NASB)

38 Pilate *said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and *said to them, “I find no guilt in Him.

John 18:39 (AMP)

39 But it is your custom that I release one [prisoner] for you at the Passover. So shall I release for you the King of the Jews?

John 18:40 (NIV)

40 They shouted back, “No, not him! Give us Barabbas!” Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.

John Chapter 19

John 19:1 (NASB)

Pilate then took Jesus and scourged Him.

John 19:2 (AMP)

And the soldiers, having twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and threw a purple cloak around Him.

John 19:3 (NIV)

and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they struck him in the face.

John 19:4 (NIV)

Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews, “Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him.”

John 19:5 (NIV)

When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, “Here is the man!”

John 19:6 (NASB)

So when the chief priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out saying, “Crucify, crucify!” Pilate *said to them, “Take Him yourselves and crucify Him, for I find no guilt in Him.”

John 19:7 (NIV)

The Jews insisted, “We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.”

John 19:8 (AMP)

So, when Pilate heard this said, he was more alarmed and awestricken and afraid than before.

John 19:9 (NASB)

and he entered into the Praetorium again and *said to Jesus, “Where are You from?” But Jesus gave him no answer.

John 19:10 (NASB)

10 So Pilate *said to Him, “You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?”

John 19:11 (NASB)

11 Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”

John 19:12 (NASB)

12 As a result of this Pilate made efforts to release Him, but the Jews cried out saying, “If you release this Man, you are no friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself out to be a king opposes Caesar.”

John 19:13 (NASB)

13 Therefore when Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.

John 19:14 (NIV2011)

14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. “Here is your king,” Pilate said to the Jews.

John 19:15 (NASB)

15 So they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate *said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”

John 19:16 (NIV)

16 Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus.

John 19:17 (NASB)

17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

John 19:18 (AMP)

18 There they crucified Him, and with Him two others—one on either side and Jesus between them.

John 19:19 (AMP)

19 And Pilate also wrote a title (an inscription on a placard) and put it on the cross. And the writing was: Jesus the Nazarene, the King of the Jews.

John 19:20 (NASB)

20 Therefore many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin and in Greek.

John 19:21 (NIV)

21 The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”

John 19:22 (NIV)

22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

John 19:23 (NIV)

23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

John 19:24 (NIV)

24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.” This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled which said, “They divided my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.” So this is what the soldiers did.

John 19:25 (NASB)

25 Therefore the soldiers did these things. But standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

John 19:26 (NASB)

26 When Jesus then saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He *said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!”

John 19:27 (NASB)

27 Then He *said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household.

John 19:28 (NASB)

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, *said, “I am thirsty.”

John 19:29 (NIV)

29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips.

John 19:30 (NIV)

30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

John 19:31 (NIV)

31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

John 19:32 (NIV)

32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other.

John 19:33 (NIV)

33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.

John 19:34 (NIV)

34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.

John 19:35 (NIV)

35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.

John 19:36 (NIV)

36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,”

John 19:37 (NIV)

37 and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”

John 19:38 (NIV)

38 Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away.

John 19:39 (NIV)

39 He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.

John 19:40 (NIV)

40 Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.

John 19:41 (NIV)

41 At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid.

John 19:42 (NIV)

42 Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.

John Chapter 20

John 20:1 (NKJV)

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.

John 20:2 (NKJV)

Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”

John 20:3 (NIV)

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb.

John 20:4 (NASB)

The two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter and came to the tomb first;

John 20:5 (NASB)

and stooping and looking in, he *saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.

John 20:6 (NIV)

Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there,

John 20:7 (NIV)

as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen.

John 20:8 (AMP)

Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, went in too; and he saw and was convinced and believed.

John 20:10 (NIV)

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes,

John 20:11 (NASB)

11 But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb;

John 20:12 (NIV)

12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

John 20:13 (NASB)

13 And they *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She *said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”

John 20:14 (NIV)

14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.

John 20:15 (NIV)

15 “Woman,” he said, “why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

John 20:16 (NASB)

16 Jesus *said to her, “Mary!” She turned and *said to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher).

John 20:17 (KJV)

17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

John 20:18 (NKJV)

18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things to her.

John 20:19 (NIV)

19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”

John 20:20 (NIV)

20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

John 20:21 (NIV)

21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”

John 20:22 (NIV)

22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

John 20:23 (NASB)

23 “If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”

John 20:24 (NASB)

24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

John 20:25 (NASB)

25 So the other disciples were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

John 20:26 (NIV)

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”

John 20:27 (NASB)

27 Then He *said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

John 20:28 (NASB)

28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

John 20:29 (NKJV)

29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 20:30 (NIV)

30 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.

John 20:31 (NIV)

31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

John Chapter 21

John 21:1 (NASB)

After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way.

John 21:2 (NASB)

Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together.

John 21:3 (NASB)

Simon Peter *said to them, “I am going fishing.” They *said to him, “We will also come with you.” They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.

John 21:4 (NIV)

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

John 21:5 (NIV)

He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered.

John 21:6 (NIV)

He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

John 21:7 (NIV)

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water.

John 21:8 (NIV)

The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.

John 21:9 (NIV)

When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

John 21:10 (NIV)

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.”

John 21:11 (NASB)

11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.

John 21:12 (NASB)

12 Jesus *said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples ventured to question Him, “Who are You?” knowing that it was the Lord.

John 21:13 (NIV)

13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.

John 21:14 (NIV)

14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

John 21:15 (NIV)

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

John 21:16 (NIV)

16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

John 21:17 (NIV)

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

John 21:18 (NIV)

18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”

John 21:19 (NIV)

19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”

John 21:20 (NIV)

20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”)

John 21:21 (NIV)

21 When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

John 21:22 (NIV)

22 Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”

John 21:23 (NIV)

23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”

John 21:24 (NASB)

24 This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.

John 21:25 (CJB)

25 But there are also many other things Yeshua did; and if they were all to be recorded, I don’t think the whole world could contain the books that would have to be written!
