The Gospel according to St. John

Chapter 1
[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
[2] The same was in the beginning with God.
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Jesus Christ is the true Light which lighteth every man than cometh into the world.
John the Baptist proclaims that Jesus is the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world.
Nathaniel addresses Jesus as Rabbi, Son of God, and the King of Israel.
Chapter 2
Jesus turns the water into wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee.
Jesus casts the money changers out of the temple at Jerusalem.
[18] Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
[19] Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
[20] Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
[21] But he spake of the temple of his body.
[22] When therefore he 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.
Chapter 3
Jesus teaches Nicodemus that a man must be born again of the water and the spirit to see the kingdom of God.
Jesus teaches
[14] And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
[15] That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Chapter 4
Jesus teaches a woman of Samaria at Jacob's well.
[13] Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
[14] But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Jesus teaches her that he is the Christ. Many of the Samaritans believe in Jesus Christ.
[41] And many more believed because of his own word;
[42] And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
Jesus travels to Cana of Galilee. He heals the nobleman's son.

Jesus feeds the five thousand. He walks on the sea to join the disciples in a boat.
[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.
Chapter 7
Jesus goes to the feast of the tabernacles, which marks the end of the harvest, in Jerusalem. He teaches in the temple that he was sent of the Father.
[16] 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.
The chief priests and Pharisees send officers to take Jesus, but the officers do not take Jesus. The people dispute whether Jesus is the Christ or not.
Chapter 8
The Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery to Jesus. The Pharisees sought to stone the woman.
[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.
The Pharisees then left. Jesus told the woman:
[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.
Chapter 9
Jesus anoints a blind man's eyes with clay and tells him to go wash himself in the pool of Siloam. The man does so and receives his sight. Jesus reveals to the man that he is the Son of God. The man worships Jesus.
The Pharisees are angry that Jesus healed a man on the Sabbath. Jesus rebukes the Pharisees.
Chapter 10
[7] Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
[8] All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
[9] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
[10] The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
[11] I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
Jesus gives eternal life to his sheep.
Chapter 11
Martha gives her testimony.
[27] She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

[24] Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
[25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
[32] And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
[33] This he said, signifying what death he should die.

[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

[5] And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

[15] Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
[16] Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
