And many believed on him there.10(41-42) + I am the all: Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.11(1) + the all came forth from me: (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)11(2) + and the all attained to me: Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.11(3) + cleave to wood, I am there: When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.11(4-5) + lift up the stone: When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.11(6) + and you will find me there: Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.11(7) [Note: The secret words which formed the Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas were created either to acknowledge the information they were created from or to reveal something about the information they were created for.

As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.11(28-29) + for there will be days: Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she arose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.11(30-31) + when you will say: Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.11(32) + blessed is the womb which has not conceived: When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, And said, Where have ye laid him?

     John 3(27-35): John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

     John 9(3-5): Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

     Genesis 1(14-19): And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning [+ the night/darkness] were the fourth day [all is being done in the day/light].

     John 14(28): Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.13(27) + there was a rich man who had much money: Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.13(28) + He said, I will use my money: For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.13(29) + that I may sow: He [Judas Iscariot] then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.13(30)

     Thomas 14(17-19) Part 1 of Chapter 12: you will be condemned: Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?12(3-5) + and if you give alms you will do evil to your spirit: This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.12(6)

     John 6(70-71): Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

     John 8(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 [light] in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


Note: within you: But if a man walk in the night [the darkness/lies], he stumbleth, because there is no light [truth] in him.11(10)

     Genesis 1(1-5): In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light [the good] from the darkness [the evil]. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning [+ the night/darkness] was the first day [all is being done in the day/light].


Note: that which you have: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth;11(11t)

     John 15(15-16): Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you [Lazarus being one of the 12], and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

     John 17(6-12): I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.


Note: will save you: but I [the Mother] go, that I [the Father] may awake him out of sleep.11(11b) + if you do: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.11(12) + not have that: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.11(13-14)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Thomas 18(13-17) Part 5 of Chapter 6: for where the beginning is: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me;6(37t) + there shall be the end: and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.6(37b) + blessed is he: For I [Mother] came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].6(38) + who shall stand at the beginning: And this is the Father's will which hath sent me [Mother], that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.6(39) + and he shall know the end: And this is the will of him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve], that every one which seeth the Son [Lord Eve/Jesus - born of woman], and believeth on him [Lord Adam/Jesus - not born of woman], may have everlasting life:6(40t) + and he shall not taste death: and I [Father] will raise him [Enoch /Elijah/Lazarus] up at the last day [Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.2(19)].6(40b)


Note: that which you have: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth;11(11t) + will save you: but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.11(11b) + if you do: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.11(12) + not have that: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.11(13-14) + within yourselves: And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.11(15)

     Thomas 67(11-15) Part 3 of Chapter 15: Jesus said: These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.15(11) + whoever knows: This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.15(12) + the all: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.15(13) + but fails him: Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants;15(14-15t) + lacks: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:15(15c) + everything: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.15(15b)


Note: that which you have: These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth;11(11t) + will save you: but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.11(11b) + if you do: Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.11(12) + not have that: Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.11(13-14) + within yourselves: And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.11(15)

     John 2(18-22): Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his [Lazarus'] body. When therefore he [Lazarus] was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

     Deuteronomy 18(15-22): The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he [Lord Jesus/Eve - the Son] shall speak in my name [Lord Adam/Jesus - the Father], I will require it of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

     Thomas 52(17-18) Part 4 of Chapter 2: and you have spoken about the dead: Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.2(18-19)


Note: that which you do not have within you [Didymos >Judas< Thomas]: Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples [Judas/not Iscariot and Judas Iscariot being two of his fellow disciples], Let us also go, that we may die with him.11(16)

     Thomas (Prologue): These are the secret words [Gospel according to Thomas - Didymos Judas Thomas] which the Living Jesus spoke [Gospel according to John the true words - Thomas called Didymus] and Didymos >Judas< Thomas [Didymos (3) Judas (1) Thomas (5) = 1(5+ 3) or Eternal Life = Nicodemus/Moses] wrote.


Note: will kill you: Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.11(17)

     Thomas 13(14) Part 2 of Chapter 10: and burn you up [the fever]: Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.11(1)

     John 11(1-4): Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

     Thomas 31(6-7) Part 8 of Chapter 4: no physician heals those: And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick in Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.4(46b-47)

     John 4(47-52) When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.


Note: will kill you: Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.11(17)

     Deuteronomy 32(39-40): See now that I [Adam - the Father of all living], even I [Eve - the Mother of all living], am he [the LORD], and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

     John 10(24-30): Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.


Note: John 11(14-17): Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him. Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already [should read: “Then when Jesus came, he already knew that he had lain in the grave four days”].

JOHN CHAPTER 11 + THOMAS - PART 3

Gospel according to Thomas - page 43/45, Saying 79, plate 95(3-11)

(79) A woman from the multitude said to Him:3 Blessed is the womb which4 bore Thee and the breasts which5 nourished Thee. He said to [her]:6 Blessed are those who have heard7 the word of the Father (and) have kept it8 in truth. For there will be days9 when you will say: Blessed is the womb10 which has not conceived and the breasts which have not suckled.11

     Lines 9-11: Luke 23(29), cf. also Matthew 24(19) = Mark 13(17) = Luke 21(23)


The Secret Words of Thomas (79) were created from John 11(17-35)

A woman: Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.11(17) + from the multitude: Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.11(18-19) + said to him: Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.11(20-21) + blessed is the womb which bore thee and the breasts which nourished thee: But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.11(22) + He said to her, blessed are those who have heard: Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.11(23-24) + the word: Jesus saith unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.11(25-26t) + of the Father: Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.11(26b-27) + and have kept it in truth: And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee. As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.11(28-29) + for there will be days: Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she arose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.11(30-31) + when you will say: Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.11(32) + blessed is the womb which has not conceived: When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.11(33-34) + and the breasts which have not suckled: Jesus wept.11(35)


Note: A woman: Then when Jesus came, he found that he [Lazarus] had lain in the grave four days already.11(17)

     Thomas 96(2-3) Part 6 of Chapter 16: Jesus said, the kingdom of the Father is like a woman: I [Lord Eve the Mother] came forth from the Father [Lord Adam], and am come into the world [the Beginning]: again, I [Lord Jesus/Eve the Son] leave the world, and go to the Father [Lord Adam/Jesus] [the End]. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.16(28-29)

     Thomas 18(13-17) Part 5 of Chapter 6: for where the beginning is: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me;6(37t) + there shall be the end: and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.6(37b) + blessed is he: For I [Mother] came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].6(38) + who shall stand at the beginning: And this is the Father's will which hath sent me [Mother], that of all which he hath given me I should loose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.6(39) + and he shall know the end: And this is the will of him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve], that every one which seeth the Son [Lord Eve/Jesus - born of woman], and believeth on him [Lord Adam/Jesus - not born of woman], may have everlasting life:6(40t) + and he shall not taste death: and I [Father] will raise him [Enoch/Elijah/Lazarus] up at the last day [Destroy this temple (1 Day), and in three (3) days I will raise it up.2(19)].6(40b)

     John 1(29-34): The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me [John] cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he [Lord Eve] was before me [Abel]. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abe], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.

     Exodus 34(8-10): And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord [Lord Adam], let my Lord [Lord Eve], I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance. And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou [Moses/Nicodemus] art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing [cross/crucifixion] that I [Father] will do with thee [Mother/Son - Lord Jesus/Eve].

     Isaiah 53(4-7): Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

     Isaiah 50(1): Thus saith the LORD, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I [Father] have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I [Lord Adam] have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother [Lord Eve] put away.


Note: A woman: Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.11(17) [should read: “Then when Jesus came, he already knew that he had lain in the grave four days.”]

     John 11(3-7): Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still [= 3 Days] in the same place where he was. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again [4th Day].

     Thomas 78(28-30) Part 5 of Chapter 11: why did you come out into the desert: Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me [Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.2(19)].11(41) + to see a bruised reed: And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.11(42) + shaken by the wind: And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.11(43)


Note: said to him: Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.11(20-21) + blessed is the womb which bore thee and the breasts which nourished thee [born of woman]: But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.11(22)

     Thomas 46(6-7) Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam: 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.8(52) + until John [Jesus] the Baptist: Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me;8(53-54t) + there is among those: of whom ye say, that he [Adam] is your God: 8(54b) + who are born of woman: Yet ye have not known him; but I [Jesus/Eve - the Son] know him:8(55t) + none higher than John [Jesus] the Baptist: and if I [Mother] should say, I [Lord Eve] know him [Lord Adam] not, I [Jesus/Eve - the Son] shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.8(55b)

     Isaiah 7(10-16): Moreover, the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying, Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in depth, or in height above. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD. And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? Therefore the LORD himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good. For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.

     Isaiah 9(6-7): For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given [Son of man/Son of God]: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

     John 3(31-36): He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.


Note: for there will be days [4 Days]: Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she arose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.11(30-31) + when you will say: Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.11(32)

     John 11(3-7): Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still [= 3 Days] in the same place where he was. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again [4th Day].


Note: blessed is the womb which has not conceived: When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.11(33-34)

     John 11(38-45): Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave [the womb]. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he had been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.


Note: A woman: Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.11(17) - and the breasts which have not suckled: Jesus wept:11(35)

     Isaiah 66(10-14): Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn her: That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I [Lord Eve/Jesus] comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.

     Isaiah 65(17-20): For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it [taken from Thomas Saying 79(3-8) Part 3 of Chapter 11].

The third thief and liar - Luke 23(29) - The third false gospel

For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck [taken from Thomas Saying 79(9-11) Part 3 of Chapter 11].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret words which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for.

     John 13(21-25): When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you [one of the chosen twelve] shall betray me. Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples [Lazarus - one of the chosen twelve], whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him [Lazarus], that he [Lazarus] should ask who it should be of whom he spake. He [Lazarus] then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it.

     John 15(15-21): Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of the Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your’s also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

     John 21(1-2): After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples [the chosen 11] at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. There were together [7] Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee [James & Matthew - Gospel according to Thomas] and two other of his disciples [Lazarus & Nicodemus (the author of the Gospel of John and the Gospel of Thomas)].

     John 21(7-8t): Therefore that disciple [Lazarus] whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter [Simon Peter], It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he [Lazarus] was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other disciples [4 - Andrew, Philip, Judas/not Iscariot and Joseph of Arimathaea - the father of Jesus] came in a little ship;

Jesus said: Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?11(40) + why did you come out into the desert: Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid.

If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.11(47-48) + and they were not able to know: And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.11(49-50) + the truth: And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.11(51-52)


Note: John 11(43-44): And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

     Numbers 6(6-8): All the days that he seperateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body. He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his head. All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

     Isaiah 40(3-8): The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD had spoken it. The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.


Note: why did you come out into the desert: Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me [Destroy this temple (1 Day), and in three days (1+3=4 Days) I will raise it up.2(19b) - pertaining to Lazarus].11(41) - shaken by the wind: And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.11(43)

And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord [Lord Adam], let my Lord [Lord Eve], I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance. And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou [Moses/Nicodemus] art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing [cross/crucifixion] that I [Father] will do with thee [Mother/Son - Lord Jesus/Eve].

     John 2(18-22): Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

When therefore he [Lazarus] was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

     John 5(17-21): But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto and I work. 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. 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. 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 [the raising of Lazarus]. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

A bruised reed shall he not break [pertaining to Jesus], and the smoking flax shall he not quench [pertaining to Lazarus]: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

     John 19(19-20): And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

     Thomas 103(8-9) Part 8 of Chapter 19: so that he will rise and collect his things: Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:19(32-33)

     Isaiah 53(1-5): Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him [to see a bruised reed], there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteemed him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

     Isaiah 53(10-12): Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand [a bruised reed shall he not break]. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Note: The World Book Encyclopedia - 1961: REED is a common name for many kinds of tall, slender grass plants. The word also commonly refers to the stems of these plants, which are often jointed in many places. The stems may be as slender and fragile as straw, or they may be as thick and sturdy as bamboo. The pith that fills the centre of the reed can usually be removed, leaving a hollow, jointed tube. The hollow stems have been used to make musical instruments. [tender: Yielding easily to force that tends to crush, bruise, break, or injure.]

Then Jesus said unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.11(13-14)

     Thomas 3(25-26) Part 3 of Chapter 6: but the kingdom is within you and it is without you: And the sea [water] arose by reason of a great wind [air] that blew [he cried with a loud voice].6(18)

     John 18(35-36): Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what has thou done? Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world [the kingdom of heaven]: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.


Note: shaken by the wind: And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.11(43)

     Thomas (Prologue) Part 1 of Chapter 21: These are the secret words: And many other signs [shaken by the wind] truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book [the 3rd book - the Gospel according to Thomas]:20(30) + which the Living Jesus spoke: But these are written [the 1st book - the Gospel according to John - And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.], that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing [the 2nd unsealed book - John + Thomas] ye might have life through his name [lord Eve].20(31)

     John 2(18-22): Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

A bruised reed shall he not break [pertaining to Jesus], and the smoking flax shall he not quench [pertaining to Lazarus]: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

     John 11(39): Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days [and the smoking flax shall he not quench]. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

     John 11(44): And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes [flax]: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

     John 19(40): Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes [flax] with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

Note: see, your king: Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.11(44b-45)

     John 1(47-50): Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these [the raising of Lazarus].

     Psalm 2(1-12): Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

     Isaiah 7(14-16): Therefore the LORD himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son [the first born], and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good. For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.


Note: The Secret Words of Thomas (78) were created from John 11(40-52) - concerning Jesus and Lazarus

Jesus said: Why did you come out into the desert? To see a bruised reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in soft garments? See, your king and your great ones are those who are clothed in soft garments and they were not be able to know the truth. [words underlined - see Matthew and Luke below - they made this Saying about Jesus and John]

Note: The Secret Words of Thomas (46) were created from John 8(52-59)+9(1-3) - concerning Jesus and Abraham

Jesus said: From Adam until John [Jesus] the Baptist there is among those who are born of woman none higher than John [Jesus] the Baptist, so that his eyes will not be broken. But I have said that whoever among you becomes as a child shall know the Kingdom, and he shall become higher than John. [words underlined - see Matthew and Luke below - they made this Saying about Jesus and John]


Scriptural Parallels and Echoes

The first thief and liar - Mark 9(11-13) - The first false gospel

And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias [Elijah - John] is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

The second thief and liar - Matthew 11(7-15) - The second false gospel

And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses [taken from Thomas Saying 78(28-1) Part 5 of Chapter 11 - concerning Jesus and Lazarus]. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he [taken from Thomas Saying 46(6-12) Part 7 of Chapter 8 - concerning Jesus and Abraham]. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias [Elijah], which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear [taken from Thomas Saying 21(19) Part 6 of Chapter 3 or Thomas Saying 8(2-3) Part 3 of Chapter 12].

The third thief and liar - Luke 7(24-28) - The third false gospel

And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts [taken from Thomas Saying 78(28-1) Part 5 of Chapter 11 - concerning Jesus and Lazarus]. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those that are born of woman there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he [taken from Thomas Saying 46(6-12) Part 7 of Chapter 8 - concerning Jesus and Abraham].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret word which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for.


Gospel according to John 1(19-28) - THE TRUE GOSPEL

And this is *the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias [Elijah]? And he saith, I am not [Lazarus is the same Enoch/Elijah]. Art thou that prophet [Moses]? And he answered, No [Nicodemus is the same Moses/Isaiah]. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He [John] said, I [Abel] am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias [Elijah], neither that prophet [Moses]? John answered them [Jesus is not present] saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one [Nicodemus/Moses] among you [the Pharisees], whom ye know not [Moses/Nicodemus]; He [Nicodemus/Moses] it is, who coming after me [John] is preferred before me [Abel], whose [Moses’] shoe's latchet I [Aaron] am not worthy to unloose. These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

     Note - Genesis 4(8-10): And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What has thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

     John 1(17-21): For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. And this is *the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias [Elijah]? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet [Moses]? And he answered, No.

     John 8(28-36): 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 my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. As he spake these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? 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.

     Isaiah 65(8-16): Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me. But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number. Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I [Jesus] called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name [my friends]: That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.


Note: Jesus said, blessed are those: And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.11(49-50)

     John 18(12-16): Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple [Nicodemus] was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple [Nicodemus], which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.

     John 3(1-2): There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same [Nicodemus/Moses] came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.11(44b-45) + and your great ones: But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.11(46) + are those who are clothed in soft garments: Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.11(47-48) [See also PART 4 of Chapter 18 - Notes: for they are like a dog:]

     John 19(14-16): And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.


Note: who have known the Father in truth: Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.11(54)

     John 15(15-27): Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your’s also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.


Note: and blessed are the hungry: And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.11(55) + for the belly of him: Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?11(56)

     John 7(33-39): 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. 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? 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? 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. (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.)
