Bishops(i) 1 Then Iesus, sixe dayes before the Passouer, came to Bethanie, where Lazarus had ben dead, whom he raysed from death 2 There they made hym a supper, and Martha serued: but Lazarus was one of them that sate at the table with hym 3 Then toke Marie a pounde of oyntment of Spike narde, very costly, and annoynted Iesus feete, and wyped his feete with her heere: and the house was fylled with the odoure of the oyntment 4 Then sayde one of his disciples, euen Iudas Iscariot Simons sonne, which shoulde betraye hym 5 Why was not this oyntment solde for three hundred pence, and geuen to the poore 6 This he sayde, not that he cared for the poore: but because he was a thiefe, and had the bagge, and bare that which was geuen 7 Then sayde Iesus: Let her alone, agaynst the day of my burying hath she kept this 8 For the poore alwayes shall ye haue with you: but me haue ye not alwayes 9 Much people of the Iewes therfore had knowledge that he was there. And they came not for Iesus sake only: but that they might se Lazarus also, who he raysed from death 10 But the hye priestes helde a councell, that they myght put Lazarus to death also 11 Because that for his sake, many of the Iewes went away, and beleued on Iesus 12 On the next day, much people that were come to ye feast, when they hearde that Iesus should come to Hierusalem 13 Toke braunches of paulme trees, and went foorth to meete hym, and cryed: Hosanna, blessed is he that in the name of the Lorde commeth, kyng of Israel 14 And Iesus got a young Asse, and sate theron, as it is written 15 Feare not daughter of Sion, beholde, thy kyng commeth, sittyng on an Asses colte 16 These thynges vnderstoode not his disciples at the first: but when Iesus was glorified, the remembred they that such thinges were written of him, & that such thynges they had done vnto hym 17 The people that was with him, when he called Lazarus out of his graue, and raysed hym from death, bare recorde 18 Therfore met hym the people also, because they hearde that he had done such a miracle 19 The pharisees therfore sayde among them selues: perceaue ye, howe ye preuayle nothyng? Beholde, [all the whole] worlde goeth after hym 20 There were certaine Grekes among them, that came to worship at the feast 21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida, [a citie] of Galilee, and desired hym, saying: Syr, we woulde [fayne] see Iesus 22 Philip came and tolde Andrewe: And agayne, Andrewe & Philip tolde Iesus 23 And Iesus aunswered them, saying: The houre is come, that the sonne of man must be glorified 24 Ueryly, veryly, I say vnto you, except the wheate corne fall into the grounde, and dye, it abideth alone: If it dye, it bryngeth foorth much fruite 25 He that loueth his lyfe, shall destroy it: and he that hateth his lyfe in this worlde, shall kepe it vnto lyfe eternall 26 If any man minister vnto me, let hym folowe me: And where I am, there shall also my minister be. If any man minister vnto me, hym wyll my father honour 27 Nowe is my soule troubled, and what shall I say? Father, saue me from this houre: but therfore came I into this houre 28 Father, glorifie thy name. Then came there a voyce from heauen [saying] I haue both glorified it, and wyll glorifie it agayne 29 The people therfore that stoode by and hearde it, sayde that it thundred: Other sayde, an Angel spake to hym 30 Iesus aunswered and sayde: This voyce came, not because of me, but for your sakes 31 Nowe is the iudgement of this worlde: Nowe shall the prince of this worlde be cast out 32 And I, yf I were lyft vp from the earth, wyll drawe all men vnto me 33 (This he sayde, signifiyng what death he shoulde dye. 34 The people aunswered him: We haue hearde out of the lawe, that Christe bydeth euer: and howe sayest thou, the sonne of man must be lyft vp? Who is that sonne of man 35 Then Iesus sayde vnto them: Yet a litle while is the light with you. Walke while ye haue light, lest the darknesse come on you: For he that walketh in the darke, wotteth not whither he goeth 36 Whyle ye haue lyght, beleue on the lyght, that ye may be the chyldren of the lyght. These thynges spake Iesus, and departed, & hyd hym selfe from the 37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet beleued not they on hym 38 That the saying of Esaias the prophete myght be fulfylled, which he spake: Lorde, who shall beleue our saying? And to whom is the arme of the Lorde declared 39 Therfore coulde they not beleue, because that Esaias sayth agayne 40 He hath blynded their eyes, and hardened their heart, that they shoulde not see with their eyes, & lest they should vnderstande with their hearte, & should be conuerted, and I should heale them 41 Such thynges sayde Esaias, when he sawe his glory, and spake of hym 42 Neuerthelesse, among ye chiefe rulers also, many beleued on hym: But because of the pharisees, they dyd not confesse hym, lest they should be excomunicate 43 For they loued the prayse of men, more then the prayse of God 44 Iesus cryed, and sayde: He that beleueth on me, beleueth not on me, but on hym that sent me 45 And he that seeth me, seeth hym that sent me 46 I am come a lyght into ye worlde, that whosoeuer beleueth on me, should not byde in darknesse 47 And yf any man heare my wordes, and beleue not, I iudge hym not: For I came not to iudge the worlde, but to saue the worlde 48 He that refuseth me, & receaueth not my wordes, hath one that iudgeth him: The worde that I haue spoken, the same shall iudge hym in the last day 49 For I haue not spoken of my selfe: but the father which sent me, he gaue me a commaundement what I should say, and what I shoulde speake 50 And I knowe that his commaundement is lyfe euerlastyng. Whatsoeuer I speake therfore, euen as the father bad me, so I speake
