1 After this there
was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which
is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind,
halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool,
and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling
of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty
and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long
time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the
water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming,
another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed,
and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the
sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto
me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee,
Take up thy bed, and walk?
13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had
conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto
him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse
thing come unto thee.
15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which
had made him whole.
16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to
slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and
18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he
not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was
his Father, making himself equal with God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I
say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he
seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these
also doeth the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things
that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than
these, that ye may marvel.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them;
even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment
unto the Son:
23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the
Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father
which hath sent him.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word,
and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and
shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now
is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and
they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given
to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because
he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which
all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the
resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the
resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and
my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the
will of the Father which hath sent me.
31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that
the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I
say, that ye might be saved.
35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing
for a season to rejoice in his light.
36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works
which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that
I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness
of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath
sent, him ye believe not.
39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal
life: and they are they which testify of me.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
41 I receive not honour from men.
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if
another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another,
and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there
is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for
he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe
1 After these things Jesus went
over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles
which he did on them that were diseased.
3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his
4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company
come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread,
that these may eat?
6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he
7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two
small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much
grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks,
he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that
were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather
up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve
baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which
remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus
did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come
into the world.
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take
him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto
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.
20 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 the people which stood on the other
side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save
that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus
went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples
were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the
place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given
24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither
his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum,
seeking for Jesus.
25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea,
they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, 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 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God,
that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign 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 eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth
you the true bread from heaven.
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
37 All that the Father 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 do mine 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: and I will raise him up at the last day.
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
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
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 meat indeed, 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.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this,
said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at
it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are
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 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.
70 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.
