Chapter 1:51 Verses
43-1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God;
43-1:2 this one was in the beginning with God;
43-1:3 all things through him did happen, and without him happened not even one thing that hath happened.
43-1:4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men,
43-1:5 and the light in the darkness did shine, and the darkness did not perceive it.
43-1:6 There came a man--having been sent from God--whose name is John,
43-1:7 this one came for testimony, that he might testify about the Light, that all might believe through him;
43-1:8 that one was not the Light, but--that he might testify about the Light.
43-1:9 He was the true Light, which doth enlighten every man, coming to the world;
43-1:10 in the world he was, and the world through him was made, and the world did not know him:
43-1:11 to his own things he came, and his own people did not receive him;
43-1:12 but as many as did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God--to those believing in his name,
43-1:13 who--not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but--of God were begotten.
43-1:14 And the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth.
43-1:15 John doth testify concerning him, and hath cried, saying, `This was he of whom I said, He who after me is coming, hath come before me, for he was before me;'
43-1:16 and out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace;
43-1:17 for the law through Moses was given, the grace and the truth through Jesus Christ did come;
43-1:18 God no one hath ever seen; the only begotten Son, who is on the bosom of the Father--he did declare.
43-1:19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent out of Jerusalem priests and Levites, that they might question him, `Who art thou?'
43-1:20 and he confessed and did not deny, and confessed--`I am not the Christ.'
43-1:21 And they questioned him, `What then? Elijah art thou?' and he saith, `I am not.' --`The prophet art thou?' and he answered, `No.'
43-1:22 They said then to him, `Who art thou, that we may give an answer to those sending us? what dost thou say concerning thyself?'
43-1:23 He said, `I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.'
43-1:24 And those sent were of the Pharisees,
43-1:25 and they questioned him and said to him, `Why, then, dost thou baptize, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?'
43-1:26 John answered them, saying, `I baptize with water, but in midst of you he hath stood whom ye have not known, this one it is who is coming after me, who hath been before me,
43-1:27 of whom I am not worthy that I may loose the cord of his sandal.'
43-1:28 These things came to pass in Bethabara, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing,
43-1:29 on the morrow John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, `Lo, the Lamb of God, who is taking away the sin of the world;
43-1:30 this is he concerning whom I said, After me doth come a man, who hath come before me, because he was before me:
43-1:31 and I knew him not, but, that he might be manifested to Israel, because of this I came with the water baptizing.
43-1:32 And John testified, saying--`I have seen the Spirit coming down, as a dove, out of heaven, and it remained on him;
43-1:33 and I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water, He said to me, On whomsoever thou mayest see the Spirit coming down, and remaining on him, this is he who is baptizing with the Holy Spirit;
43-1:34 and I have seen, and have testified, that this is the Son of God.'
43-1:35 On the morrow, again, John was standing, and two of his disciples,
43-1:36 and having looked on Jesus walking, he saith, `Lo, the Lamb of God;'
43-1:37 and the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus.
43-1:38 And Jesus having turned, and having beheld them following, saith to them, `What seek ye?' and they said to them, `Rabbi, (which is, being interpreted, Teacher,) where remainest thou?'
43-1:39 He saith to them, `Come and see;' they came, and saw where he doth remain, and with him they remained that day and the hour was about the tenth.
43-1:40 Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard from John, and followed him;
43-1:41 this one doth first find his own brother Simon, and saith to him, `We have found the Messiah,' (which is, being interpreted, The Anointed,)
43-1:42 and he brought him unto Jesus: and having looked upon him, Jesus saith, `Thou art Simon, the son of Jonas, thou shalt be called Cephas,' (which is interpreted, A rock.)
43-1:43 On the morrow, he willed to go forth to Galilee, and he findeth Philip, and saith to him, `Be following me.'
43-1:44 And Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter;
43-1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith to him, `Him of whom Moses wrote in the Law, and the prophets, we have found, Jesus the son of Joseph, who is from Nazareth;'
43-1:46 and Nathanael said to him, `Out of Nazareth is any good thing able to be?' Philip said to him, `Come and see.'
43-1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming unto him, and he saith concerning him, `Lo, truly an Israelite, in whom guile is not;'
43-1:48 Nathanael saith to him, `Whence me dost thou know?' Jesus answered and said to him, `Before Philip's calling thee--thou being under the fig-tree--I saw thee.'
43-1:49 Nathanael answered and saith to him, `Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the king of Israel.'
43-1:50 Jesus answered and said to him, `Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, thou dost believe; greater things than these thou shalt see;'
43-1:51 and he saith to him, `Verily, verily, I say to you, henceforth ye shall see the heaven opened, and the messengers of God going up and coming down upon the Son of Man.'
Chapter 2:25 Verses
43-2:1 And the third day a marriage happened in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there,
43-2:2 and also Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage;
43-2:3 and wine having failed, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, `Wine they have not;'
43-2:4 Jesus saith to her, `What--to me and to thee, woman? not yet is mine hour come.'
43-2:5 His mother saith to the ministrants, `Whatever he may say to you--do.'
43-2:6 And there were there six water-jugs of stone, placed according to the purifying of the Jews, holding each two or three measures.
43-2:7 Jesus saith to them, `Fill the water-jugs with water;' and they filled them--unto the brim;
43-2:8 and he saith to them, `Draw out, now, and bear to the director of the apartment;' and they bare.
43-2:9 And as the director of the apartment tasted the water become wine, and knew not whence it is, (but the ministrants knew, who have drawn the water,) the director of the feast doth call the bridegroom,
43-2:10 and saith to him, `Every man, at first, the good wine doth set forth; and when they may have drunk freely, then the inferior; thou didst keep the good wine till now.'
43-2:11 This beginning of the signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him;
43-2:12 after this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples; and there they remained not many days.
43-2:13 And the passover of the Jews was nigh, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
43-2:14 and he found in the temple those selling oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the money-changers sitting,
43-2:15 and having made a whip of small cords, he put all forth out of the temple, also the sheep, and the oxen; and of the money-changers he poured out the coins, and the tables he overthrew,
43-2:16 and to those selling the doves he said, `Take these things hence; make not the house of my Father a house of merchandise.'
43-2:17 And his disciples remembered that it is written, `The zeal of Thy house did eat me up;'
43-2:18 the Jews then answered and said to him, `What sign dost thou shew to us--that thou dost these things?'
43-2:19 Jesus answered and said to them, `Destroy this sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up.'
43-2:20 The Jews, therefore, said, `Forty and six years was this sanctuary building, and wilt thou in three days raise it up?'
43-2:21 but he spake concerning the sanctuary of his body;
43-2:22 when, then, he was raised out of the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this to them, and they believed the Writing, and the word that Jesus said.
43-2:23 And as he was in Jerusalem, in the passover, in the feast, many believed in his name, beholding his signs that he was doing;
43-2:24 and Jesus himself was not trusting himself to them, because of his knowing all men ,
43-2:25 and because he had no need that any should testify concerning man, for he himself was knowing what was in man.
Chapter 3:36 Verses
43-3:1 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nicodemus his name, a ruler of the Jews,
43-3:2 this one came unto him by night, and said to him, `Rabbi, we have known that from God thou hast come--a teacher, for no one these signs is able to do that thou dost, if God may not be with him.'
43-3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, `Verily, verily, I say to thee, If any one may not be born from above, he is not able to see the reign of God;'
43-3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, `How is a man able to be born, being old? is he able into the womb of his mother a second time to enter, and to be born?'
43-3:5 Jesus answered, `Verily, verily, I say to thee, If any one may not be born of water, and the Spirit, he is not able to enter into the reign of God;
43-3:6 that which hath been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which hath been born of the Spirit is spirit.
43-3:7 `Thou mayest not wonder that I said to thee, It behoveth you to be born from above;
43-3:8 the Spirit where he willeth doth blow, and his voice thou dost hear, but thou hast not known whence he cometh, and whither he goeth; thus is every one who hath been born of the Spirit.'
43-3:9 Nicodemus answered and said to him, `How are these things able to happen?'
43-3:10 Jesus answered and said to him, `Thou art the teacher of Israel--and these things thou dost not know!
43-3:11 `Verily, verily, I say to thee--What we have known we speak, and what we have seen we testify, and our testimony ye do not receive;
43-3:12 if the earthly things I said to you, and ye do not believe, how, if I shall say to you the heavenly things, will ye believe?
43-3:13 and no one hath gone up to the heaven, except he who out of the heaven came down--the Son of Man who is in the heaven.
43-3:14 `And as Moses did lift up the serpent in the wilderness, so it behoveth the Son of Man to be lifted up,
43-3:15 that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during,
43-3:16 for God did so love the world, that His Son--the only begotten--He gave, that every one who is believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.
43-3:17 For God did not send His Son to the world that he may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through him;
43-3:18 he who is believing in him is not judged, but he who is not believing hath been judged already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
43-3:19 `And this is the judgment, that the light hath come to the world, and men did love the darkness rather than the light, for their works were evil;
43-3:20 for every one who is doing wicked things hateth the light, and doth not come unto the light, that his works may not be detected;
43-3:21 but he who is doing the truth doth come to the light, that his works may be manifested, that in God they are having been wrought.'
43-3:22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples to the land of Judea, and there he did tarry with them, and was baptizing;
43-3:23 and John was also baptizing in Aenon, nigh to Salem, because there were many waters there, and they were coming and were being baptized--
43-3:24 for John was not yet cast into the prison--
43-3:25 there arose then a question from the disciples of John with some Jews about purifying,
43-3:26 and they came unto John, and said to him, `Rabbi, he who was with thee beyond the Jordan, to whom thou didst testify, lo, this one is baptizing, and all are coming unto him.'
43-3:27 John answered and said, `A man is not able to receive anything, if it may not have been given him from the heaven;
43-3:28 ye yourselves do testify to me that I said, I am not the Christ, but, that I am having been sent before him;
43-3:29 he who is having the bride is bridegroom, and the friend of the bridegroom, who is standing and hearing him, with joy doth rejoice because of the voice of the bridegroom; this, then, my joy hath been fulfilled.
43-3:30 `Him it behoveth to increase, and me to become less;
43-3:31 he who from above is coming is above all; he who is from the earth, from the earth he is, and from the earth he speaketh; he who from the heaven is coming is above all.
43-3:32 `And what he hath seen and heard this he doth testify, and his testimony none receiveth;
43-3:33 he who is receiving his testimony did seal that God is true;
43-3:34 for he whom God sent, the sayings of God he speaketh; for not by measure doth God give the Spirit;
43-3:35 the Father doth love the Son, and all things hath given into his hand;
43-3:36 he who is believing in the Son, hath life age-during; and he who is not believing the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God doth remain upon him.'
Chapter 4:54 Verses
43-4:1 When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees heard that Jesus more disciples doth make and baptize than John,
43-4:2 (though indeed Jesus himself was not baptizing, but his disciples,)
43-4:3 he left Judea and went away again to Galilee,
43-4:4 and it was behoving him to go through Samaria.
43-4:5 He cometh, therefore, to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near to the place that Jacob gave to Joseph his son;
43-4:6 and there was there a well of Jacob. Jesus therefore having been weary from the journeying, was sitting thus on the well; it was as it were the sixth hour;
43-4:7 there cometh a woman out of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith to her, `Give me to drink;'
43-4:8 for his disciples were gone away to the city, that they may buy victuals;
43-4:9 the Samaritan woman therefore saith to him, `How dost thou, being a Jew, ask drink from me, being a Samaritan woman?' for Jews have no dealing with Samaritans.
43-4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, `If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked him, and he would have given thee living water.'
43-4:11 The woman saith to him, `Sir, thou hast not even a vessel to draw with, and the well is deep; whence, then, hast thou the living water?
43-4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who did give us the well, and himself out of it did drink, and his sons, and his cattle?'
43-4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, `Every one who is drinking of this water shall thirst again;
43-4:14 but whoever may drink of the water that I will give him, may not thirst--to the age; and the water that I will give him shall become in him a well of water, springing up to life age-during.'
43-4:15 The woman saith unto him, `Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come hither to draw.'
43-4:16 Jesus saith to her, `Go, call thy husband, and come hither;'
43-4:17 the woman answered and said, `I have not a husband.' Jesus saith to her, `Well didst thou say--A husband I have not;
43-4:18 for five husbands thou hast had, and, now, he whom thou hast is not thy husband; this hast thou said truly.'
43-4:19 The woman saith to him, `Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet;
43-4:20 our fathers in this mountain did worship, and ye--ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where it behoveth to worship.'
43-4:21 Jesus saith to her, `Woman, believe me, that there doth come an hour, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father;
43-4:22 ye worship what ye have not known; we worship what we have known, because the salvation is of the Jews;
43-4:23 but, there cometh an hour, and it now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also doth seek such to worship him;
43-4:24 God is a Spirit, and those worshipping Him, in spirit and truth it doth behove to worship.'
43-4:25 The woman saith to him, `I have known that Messiah doth come, who is called Christ, when that one may come, he will tell us all things;'
43-4:26 Jesus saith to her, `I am he , who am speaking to thee.'
43-4:27 And upon this came his disciples, and were wondering that with a woman he was speaking, no one, however, said, `What seekest thou?' or `Why speakest thou with her?'
43-4:28 The woman then left her water-jug, and went away to the city, and saith to the men,
43-4:29 `Come, see a man, who told me all things--as many as I did; is this the Christ?'
43-4:30 They went forth therefore out of the city, and were coming unto him.
43-4:31 And in the meanwhile his disciples were asking him, saying, `Rabbi, eat;'
43-4:32 and he said to them, `I have food to eat that ye have not known.'
43-4:33 The disciples then said one to another, `Did any one bring him anything to eat?'
43-4:34 Jesus saith to them, `My food is, that I may do the will of Him who sent me, and may finish His work;
43-4:35 do not say that it is yet four months, and the harvest cometh; lo, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and see the fields, that they are white unto harvest already.
43-4:36 `And he who is reaping doth receive a reward, and doth gather fruit to life age-during, that both he who is sowing and he who is reaping may rejoice together;
43-4:37 for in this the saying is the true one, that one is the sower and another the reaper.
43-4:38 I sent you to reap that on which ye have not laboured; others laboured, and ye into their labour have entered.
43-4:39 And from that city many believed in him, of the Samaritans, because of the word of the woman testifying, --`He told me all things--as many as I did.'
43-4:40 When, then, the Samaritans came unto him, they were asking him to remain with them, and he remained there two days;
43-4:41 and many more did believe because of his word,
43-4:42 and said to the woman--`No more because of thy speaking do we believe; for we ourselves have heard and known that this is truly the Saviour of the world--the Christ.'
43-4:43 And after the two days he went forth thence, and went away to Galilee,
43-4:44 for Jesus himself testified that a prophet in his own country shall not have honour;
43-4:45 when then, he came to Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all things that he did in Jerusalem in the feast--for they also went to the feast.
43-4:46 Jesus came, therefore, again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine, and there was a certain courtier, whose son was ailing in Capernaum,
43-4:47 he, having heard that Jesus is come out of Judea to Galilee, went away unto him, and was asking him that he may come down and may heal his son, for he was about to die.
43-4:48 Jesus then said unto him, `If signs and wonders ye may not see, ye will not believe.'
43-4:49 The courtier saith unto him, `Sir, come down before my child die;'
43-4:50 Jesus saith to him, `Be going on; thy son doth live.' And the man believed the word that Jesus said to him, and was going on,
43-4:51 and he now going down, his servants met him, and told, saying--`Thy child doth live;'
43-4:52 he inquired then of them the hour in which he became better, and they said to him--`Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him;'
43-4:53 then the father knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus said to him--`Thy son doth live,' and he himself believed, and his whole house;
43-4:54 this again a second sign did Jesus, having come out of Judea to Galilee.
Chapter 5:47 Verses
43-5:1 After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
43-5:2 and there is in Jerusalem by the sheep- gate a pool that is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches,
43-5:3 in these were lying a great multitude of the ailing, blind, lame, withered, waiting for the moving of the water,
43-5:4 for a messenger at a set time was going down in the pool, and was troubling the water, the first then having gone in after the troubling of the water, became whole of whatever sickness he was held.
43-5:5 and there was a certain man there being in ailment thirty and eight years,
43-5:6 him Jesus having seen lying, and having known that he is already a long time, he saith to him, `Dost thou wish to become whole?'
43-5:7 The ailing man answered him, `Sir, I have no man, that, when the water may be troubled, he may put me into the pool, and while I am coming, another doth go down before me.'
43-5:8 Jesus saith to him, `Rise, take up thy couch, and be walking;'
43-5:9 and immediately the man became whole, and he took up his couch, and was walking, and it was a sabbath on that day,
43-5:10 the Jews then said to him that hath been healed, `It is a sabbath; it is not lawful to thee to take up the couch.'
43-5:11 He answered them, `He who made me whole--that one said to me, Take up thy couch, and be walking;'
43-5:12 they questioned him, then, `Who is the man who is saying to thee, Take up thy couch and be walking?'
43-5:13 But he that was healed had not known who he is, for Jesus did move away, a multitude being in the place.
43-5:14 After these things, Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said to him, `Lo, thou hast become whole; sin no more, lest something worse may happen to thee.'
43-5:15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it is Jesus who made him whole,
43-5:16 and because of this were the Jews persecuting Jesus, and seeking to kill him, because these things he was doing on a sabbath.
43-5:17 And Jesus answered them, `My Father till now doth work, and I work;'
43-5:18 because of this, then, were the Jews seeking the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the sabbath, but he also called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.
43-5:19 Jesus therefore responded and said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son is not able to do anything of himself, if he may not see the Father doing anything; for whatever things He may do, these also the Son in like manner doth;
43-5:20 for the Father doth love the Son, and doth shew to him all things that He himself doth; and greater works than these He will shew him, that ye may wonder.
43-5:21 `For, as the Father doth raise the dead, and doth make alive, so also the Son doth make alive whom he willeth;
43-5:22 for neither doth the Father judge any one, but all the judgment He hath given to the Son,
43-5:23 that all may honour the Son according as they honour the Father; he who is not honouring the Son, doth not honour the Father who sent him.
43-5:24 `Verily, verily, I say to you--He who is hearing my word, and is believing Him who sent me, hath life age-during, and to judgment he doth not come, but hath passed out of the death to the life.
43-5:25 `Verily, verily, I say to you--There cometh an hour, and it now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those having heard shall live;
43-5:26 for, as the Father hath life in himself, so He gave also to the Son to have life in himself,
43-5:27 and authority He gave him also to do judgment, because he is Son of Man.
43-5:28 `Wonder not at this, because there doth come an hour in which all those in the tombs shall hear his voice,
43-5:29 and they shall come forth; those who did the good things to a rising again of life, and those who practised the evil things to a rising again of judgment.
43-5:30 `I am not able of myself to do anything; according as I hear I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who sent me.
43-5:31 `If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true;
43-5:32 another there is who is testifying concerning me, and I have known that the testimony that he doth testify concerning me is true;
43-5:33 ye have sent unto John, and he hath testified to the truth.
43-5:34 `But I do not receive testimony from man, but these things I say that ye may be saved;
43-5:35 he was the burning and shining lamp, and ye did will to be glad, for an hour, in his light.
43-5:36 `But I have the testimony greater than John's, for the works that the Father gave me, that I might finish them, the works themselves that I do, they testify concerning me, that the Father hath sent me.
43-5:37 `And the Father who sent me Himself hath testified concerning me; ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor His appearance have ye seen;
43-5:38 and His word ye have not remaining in you, because whom He sent, him ye do not believe.
43-5:39 `Ye search the Writings, because ye think in them to have life age-during, and these are they that are testifying concerning me;
43-5:40 and ye do not will to come unto me, that ye may have life;
43-5:41 glory from man I do not receive,
43-5:42 but I have known you, that the love of God ye have not in yourselves.
43-5:43 `I have come in the name of my Father, and ye do not receive me; if another may come in his own name, him ye will receive;
43-5:44 how are ye able--ye--to believe, glory from one another receiving, and the glory that is from God alone ye seek not?
43-5:45 `Do not think that I will accuse you unto the Father; there is who is accusing you, Moses--in whom ye have hoped;
43-5:46 for if ye were believing Moses, ye would have been believing me, for he wrote concerning me;
43-5:47 but if his writings ye believe not, how shall ye believe my sayings?'
Chapter 6:71 Verses
43-6:1 After these things Jesus went away beyond the sea of Galilee (of Tiberias),
43-6:2 and there was following him a great multitude, because they were seeing his signs that he was doing on the ailing;
43-6:3 and Jesus went up to the mount, and he was there sitting with his disciples,
43-6:4 and the passover was nigh, the feast of the Jews.
43-6:5 Jesus then having lifted up his eyes and having seen that a great multitude doth come to him, saith unto Philip, `Whence shall we buy loaves, that these may eat?' --
43-6:6 and this he said, trying him, for he himself had known what he was about to do.
43-6:7 Philip answered him, `Two hundred denaries' worth of loaves are not sufficient to them, that each of them may receive some little;'
43-6:8 one of his disciples--Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter--saith to him,
43-6:9 `There is one little lad here who hath five barley loaves, and two fishes, but these--what are they to so many?'
43-6:10 And Jesus said, `Make the men to sit down;' and there was much grass in the place, the men then sat down, in number, as it were, five thousand,
43-6:11 and Jesus took the loaves, and having given thanks he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those reclining, in like manner, also of the little fishes as much as they wished.
43-6:12 And when they were filled, he saith to his disciples, `Gather together the broken pieces that are over, that nothing may be lost;'
43-6:13 they gathered together, therefore, and filled twelve hand-baskets with broken pieces, from the five barley loaves that were over to those having eaten.
43-6:14 The men, then, having seen the sign that Jesus did, said--`This is truly the Prophet, who is coming to the world;'
43-6:15 Jesus, therefore, having known that they are about to come, and to take him by force that they may make him king, retired again to the mountain himself alone.
43-6:16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,
43-6:17 and having entered into the boat, they were going over the sea to Capernaum, and darkness had already come, and Jesus had not come unto them,
43-6:18 the sea also--a great wind blowing--was being raised,
43-6:19 having pushed onwards, therefore, about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and coming nigh to the boat, and they were afraid;
43-6:20 and he saith to them, `I am he , be not afraid;'
43-6:21 they were willing then to receive him into the boat, and immediately the boat came unto the land to which they were going.
43-6:22 On the morrow, the multitude that was standing on the other side of the sea, having seen that there was no other little boat there except one--that into which his disciples entered--and that Jesus went not in with his disciples into the little boat, but his disciples went away alone,
43-6:23 (and other little boats came from Tiberias, nigh the place where they did eat the bread, the Lord having given thanks),
43-6:24 when therefore the multitude saw that Jesus is not there, nor his disciples, they also themselves did enter into the boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus;
43-6:25 and having found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, `Rabbi, when hast thou come hither?'
43-6:26 Jesus answered them and said, `Verily, verily, I say to you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were satisfied;
43-6:27 work not for the food that is perishing, but for the food that is remaining to life age-during, which the Son of Man will give to you, for him did the Father seal-- even God.'
43-6:28 They said therefore unto him, `What may we do that we may work the works of God?'
43-6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, `This is the work of God, that ye may believe in him whom He did send.'
43-6:30 They said therefore to him, `What sign, then, dost thou, that we may see and may believe thee? what dost thou work?
43-6:31 our fathers the manna did eat in the wilderness, according as it is having been written, Bread out of the heaven He gave them to eat.'
43-6:32 Jesus, therefore, said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread out of the heaven; but my Father doth give you the true bread out of the heaven;
43-6:33 for the bread of God is that which is coming down out of the heaven, and giving life to the world.'
43-6:34 They said, therefore, unto him, `Sir, always give us this bread.'
43-6:35 And Jesus said to them, `I am the bread of the life; he who is coming unto me may not hunger, and he who is believing in me may not thirst--at any time;
43-6:36 but I said to you, that ye also have seen me, and ye believe not;
43-6:37 all that the Father doth give to me will come unto me; and him who is coming unto me, I may in no wise cast without,
43-6:38 because I have come down out of the heaven, not that I may do my will, but the will of Him who sent me.
43-6:39 `And this is the will of the Father who sent me, that all that He hath given to me I may not lose of it, but may raise it up in the last day;
43-6:40 and this is the will of Him who sent me, that every one who is beholding the Son, and is believing in him, may have life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day.'
43-6:41 The Jews, therefore, were murmuring at him, because he said, `I am the bread that came down out of the heaven;'
43-6:42 and they said, `Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we have known? how then saith this one--Out of the heaven I have come down?'
43-6:43 Jesus answered, therefore, and said to them, `Murmur not one with another;
43-6:44 no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day;
43-6:45 it is having been written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God; every one therefore who heard from the Father, and learned, cometh to me;
43-6:46 not that any one hath seen the Father, except he who is from God, he hath seen the Father.
43-6:47 `Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is believing in me, hath life age-during;
43-6:48 I am the bread of the life;
43-6:49 your fathers did eat the manna in the wilderness, and they died;
43-6:50 this is the bread that out of the heaven is coming down, that any one may eat of it, and not die.
43-6:51 `I am the living bread that came down out of the heaven; if any one may eat of this bread he shall live--to the age; and the bread also that I will give is my flesh, that I will give for the life of the world.'
43-6:52 The Jews, therefore, were striving with one another, saying, `How is this one able to give us his flesh to eat?'
43-6:53 Jesus, therefore, said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, If ye may not eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and may not drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves;
43-6:54 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, hath life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day;
43-6:55 for my flesh truly is food, and my blood truly is drink;
43-6:56 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, doth
