Christ retires. Prophet that should come into the World. 15 is When Jesus, therefore, perceived that they would come and take him by force tomake him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone. 16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the Sea, 17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum: and it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. 18 And the sea arose, by reason of a great wind that blew. 19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 2O But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 21 Then they willingly received him into the ship; and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went. 22 || The day following, when

26 Jesus answered them, and said, Verily, verily, Isayuntoyou, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you : for him hath God the Father sealed. 28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29 Jesusanswered, and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 30 T. They said therefore unto him, whatsign shewest thou then, that we may see and believe thee? what dost thou work? 31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to €at. 32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,

the people, which stood on the o-Moses gave you not that, bread ther side of the sea, saw that there from heaven; but my Father giwas none other boat there save veth you the true bread from hea

not with his disciples into the
boat, but that his disciples were
gone away alone; -
23 (Howbeit there came other
boats from Tiberias, nigh untothe
place where they did eatbread, af.
terthat the Lord had giventhanks;)
24. When the people, therefore,
saw that Jesus was not there, nei-
ther his disciples, they also took
shipping, and came to Caperna-
um, seeking for Jesus.
23 And, when they had found
him on the other side of the Sea,
they said unto him, Rabbi, when

VCI). 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, that ye also have seen me, and believe InOt. 37 All that the Fathcr giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, not to domine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: o I will raise him up at the last Clay. 41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven, - 42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the Son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know ; how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven : 43 Jesus, therefore, answered, and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me, draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 it is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man, therefore, that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. . 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 48 I am that bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any

man eat of this bread he shall live
for ever; and the bread that I
will give is my flesh, which I will
give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews, therefore, strove
among themselves, saying, How
can this man give us his flesh to
eat :
53 Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son
of man, and drink his blood, ye
have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the
last day.
55 For my flesh is meatindeed,
and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, dwelleth in
me, and I in him.
57. As the living Father hath
sent me, and I live by the Father;
so he that eateth me, even he shall
live by me.
58 This is that bread which
came down from heaven: not as
your fathers did eat manna, and
are dead: he that eateth of this
bread shall live for ever,

synagogue, as he taught in Caper-

disciples, when they had heard

64. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 T From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away : 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go thou hast the words of eternal life. 69. And we believe, and are sure, that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. 7O Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil : 71 He spake of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve. AP. VII. Christ reproveth ambition. FTER these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2 Now the Jews’ feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3. His brethren, therefore, said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doCSt. 4 For there is no man that doeth anythingin secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. 5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

Howbeit, no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews. - - 14 T. Now, about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned: ` 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 if any man will do his wiłł. he shall, know of the doćtrine, whether it be of God, or whether.

20 The people answered, and said, Thou hast a devil : who goeth about to kill thee? 21 Jesus answered, and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 22 Moses, therefore, gave unto you circumcision, (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers,) and ye on the Sabbath-day circumcise a man. 23 If a man on the sabbath-day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken ; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath-day ? 24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, is not this he whom they seek to kill 2 , 26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him : HDo the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? 27 Howbeit, we know this man whence he is ; but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is. 28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am : and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know him : for I am from him, and he hath sent me. 30 T Then they sought to take him : but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. 31 And many of the people believed on him, and said, When !hrist cometh, will he do more

the people murmured such things concerning him ; and the Pharisees, and the chief priest sent officers to take him. 33 T. Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. 34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. 35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles : 36 What mariner of saying is this that he said : Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me and where I am, thither ye cannot come 3 37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living Water. 39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given ; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) 40 || Many of the people, therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee : 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was 43 So there was a divisioi. among the people because of him.

45 || Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him : 46 The officers answered, Neverman spake like this man. 47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived? 48 Have any of the rulers, or of the Pharisees, believedon him : 49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. 5o Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth : 52 They answered, and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee : Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. 53 And every man went unto his own house. CHAP. VIII. Of the adulterous woman. ESUS went unto the mount of .5 Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him: and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and, when they had set her in the midst, 4. They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, That such should be stoned: but what sayest thou ? 6.This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But]esus stooped down, and

Christ the light of the world. 7 So, when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped dewn, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convićted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last; and Jesus was leftalone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers ? hath no man condemned thee * 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither dos condemn thee: go, and sin In OIn Ore. 12 || Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walkin darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13 The Pharisees, therefore, said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. 14 Jesus answered, and said unto them, Though i bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither Igo. 15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not aione, but I and the Father that SCInt Hle. 17 it is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
