but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up to the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he? And there was much murmuring among the people concerning hiin: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned ? Jesus answered them and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18 He that speaketh of himself seekelh his own glory: bu! he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no uprighteousness is in him.
19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you, keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? 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. 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 sabbathday ? Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this hc whom they seek to kill? But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him.' Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ? 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, saving, 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. But I know him ; for I am from him, and he hath sel! pie.
30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come. And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ comethi will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him ; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
33 Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. 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, tirat we shall not find him ? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles ?
36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am thither ye cannot come?
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. 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 that prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee ? 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 division among the people because of him.
44. And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him. Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pliarisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not • brought him?
46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this maii.
47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also de. ceived ?
48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
50 Nicodemus saith unto them (he that came to Jesus by. night, being one of them,) doth our law judge any man before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered
aud said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee ? Search and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. And every man went unto his own house.
LESSON XLIII. .. ..
John, Chap. S. Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 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. Now Moses in the law commanded that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou ?
6 This they said tempting him, that they might have to: accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not..
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. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last; and Jesus was left alone, 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 do I condemn thee: go and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again upto them, saying, I am the light of the world : he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. · 13 The Pharisees therefore said nnto him, Thou bearest re'cord of thyself; thy record is not true. 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 I go.
15 Yejudge after the flesh : I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true : for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. ..
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two
men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of nie.
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father ? -Jesus answered, Ye neither know me nor my Father: if ye had known mie ye should have known my Father also,
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasurv, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him ; for his hour was not vet come.
2i Then said Jesus again unto them. I go my way and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins : whither I go ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself ? because he saith, Whither I yo, ye cannot come. ?**
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.is
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins : for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. .
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of Man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself : but as niy Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father bath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. 30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
John, Chap. 8. 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, aud were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be inade free?
34 Jesus answered them Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seck to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto hiin, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ve would do the works of Abraham
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus saith unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me : for I proceed forth and came from God: neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words': ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God..
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil ?
49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. And I seek not mive own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man lwep my saying, he shall never see death.
52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered, If I lionour myself, my honour is nothing; it is my Father that honoureth mę; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55 Yet ye have not known him ; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you:
