The Preaching Of Juchanon – Chapter 19

Then Pilatos scourged Jeshu.

And the soldiers entwined a crown of thorns, and set it on his head; and they covered him with robes of purple, and said,

Hail to thee, King of the Jihudoyee !

and struck him upon his cheeks.

And Pilatos came again forth, and said to them,

Behold, I bring him to you forth, that you may know that I find nothing against him, nor one cause (of death).


XLIV. 19:5

AND Jeshu came forth, having on him the crown of thorns and the robes of purple.

And Pilatos said to them,

Behold the man !

But when the chief priests and officials saw him, they cried out, saying,

Crucify him, crucify him ! *

Pilatos saith to them,

Take you him and crucify him; † for I find in him no cause.

The Jihudoyee say to him,

We have a law, and, according to our law, he is guilty of death, because he made himself the son of Aloha.

When Pilatos heard that word, he the more feared.

And he entered again the praetorium, and said to Jeshu,

Whence art thou ?

But Jeshu gave him no answer.

Pilatos saith to him,

With me speakest thou not ?

Knowest thou not that I have power to release thee, and power to crucify thee ?

Jeshu saith to him,

Thou against ME hast no power, no not any, unless it hath been given to thee from above:

wherefore he who delivered me to thee hath a sin greater than thine.

On this account Pilatos willed to release him:

but the Jihudoyee cried out,

If this (man) thou releasest, thou art not the friend of Cesar:

for whosoever maketh himself a king is the adversary of Cesar.

But when Pilatos heard that word, he brought Jeshu without, and sat down upon the tribunal in the place which is called the Pavement of Stones, but in Hebrew it is called Gaphiphtha.

And it was the preparation for the petscha.

* Or, suspend him.

† elevate him on the cross.

XLV. 19:15

AND it was about the sixth hour.

And he said to the Jihudoyee,

Behold your king !

But they cried out,

Take him away, take him away ! crucify him, * crucify him !

Pilatos saith to them,

Your king shall I crucify ?

The chief priests say to him,

We have no king but Cesar.

Then delivered he him to them, that they might crucify him.

And they took Jeshu, and led him forth, bearing his cross to a place which is called A Skull, but in Hebrew is Gogultha:

there they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, † and Jeshu in the midst.

And a tablet also wrote Pilatos, and set it on the cross; and it was thus written,

This is Jeshu Natsroya, King of the Jihudoyee.

And this title many of the Jihudoyee read; for nigh to the city was the place where Jeshu was crucified; and the writing was in Hebrew and Greek and Roman.

And the chief priests said to Pilatos,

Do not write that he is king of the Jihudoyee, but that he said, I am the king of the Jihudoyee.

Pilatos saith,

That which I have written, I have written.

* Or, suspend him.

† Or, one here, and one here.


XLVI. 19:23

BUT the soldiers, when they had crucified Jeshu, took his vestments and made four parts, a part unto each one of the soldiers:

but his tunic was without seam, from the top woven all of it.

And they said one to another,

Let us not rend it, but play for it by playing, ¶ (to decide) whose it shall be:

and fulfilled was the scripture which had said,

They divided my garments among them,

And upon my raiment did they cast the lot.

These things did the soldiers.

But there stood by the cross of Jeshu his mother, and the sister of his mother, and Mariam, she who was (the wife) of Cleopha, and Mariam Magdalitha.

Jeshu seeth his mother, and that disciple whom he loved, standing; and he said to his mother,

Woman, behold thy son ! *

and he said to that disciple,

Behold thy mother ! †

And from that hour that disciple received her to be with him.

After these Jeshu knew that every thing would be accomplished, and, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said,

I thirst.‡

And a vessel was set (there) filled with vinegar:

then they filled a sponge from the vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and offered it to his mouth.

And when Jeshu had taken the vinegar, he said,

Behold, it is finished ! §

And he bowed his head, and delivered up his spirit.

¶ Naphes eleh mephas.

* Athto, ho barek.

† Ho emok.

‡ Tshe-no.

§ Ho Mashálam.
XLVII. 19:31

THE Jihudoyee, because it was the preparation, said,

Let not these bodies remain-all-night upon the cross, because the shabath has lighted:

for a great day was the day of that shabath.

And they besought of Pilatos that they should break the legs of those (who had been) crucified, and take them down.

And the soldiers came, and brake the legs of the first, and of that other who was crucified with him; but when they came unto Jeshu, they saw that he was dead already, and they brake not his legs.

But one of the soldiers struck him in his side with the lance, and forthwith there came out blood and water.

And he who SAW testifieth, and the truth is his testimony; and he knoweth that the truth he hath said, that you also may believe.

For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled, which said, that

A bone shall not be broken in him.

And again another scripture which said,

They shall look upon him whom they pierced.

After these Jauseph, he who was of Rometha, begged of Pilatos, for he was a disciple of Jeshu, but secretly for fear of the Jihudoyee, that he might take the body of Jeshu:

and Pilatos permitted.

And he came and took the body of Jeshu.

And Nikodimos also came, he who at first had come to Jeshu by night, and he brought with him a condiment of myrrh and aloes, as a hundred lithreen.

And they took the body of Jeshu, and wrapped it in cloths and in balsams, as is the manner of the Jihudoyee to bury.

Now in that place where Jeshu was crucified was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulchre where one yet had not been laid.

And they laid there Jeshu, because the shabath was coming in and the sepulchre was near.


The Preaching Of Juchanon – Chapter 20

XLVIII. 20:1

BUT in the first in the weeks came Mariam Magdalitha in the early-morn, (while it was) yet dark, unto the house of burial.

And she saw the stone that it was taken from the sepulchre.

And she ran, and came to Shemun Kipha, and to that other disciple, whom Jeshu loved, saying to them,

They have taken away our Lord from that house of burial, and I know not where they have laid him.

And Shemun went forth, and that other disciple, and they came to the house of burial.

And they ran both of them together; but that disciple ran before Shemun, and came first to the house of burial.

And looking, he saw the cloths lying, but entering he entered not.

But Shemun came after him, and went into the house of burial, and saw the cloths set, and the napkin that had been bound upon his head, not with the cloths, but folded up, and laid apart in one place.

Then went in also that disciple who came first to the house of burial, and he saw, and believed.

For not yet knew they the scriptures, that he was to rise from the dead.

And those disciples went again to their place.

But Mariam stood at the sepulchre weeping:

and while weeping, she looked into the sepulchre, and saw two angels in white, who were sitting, one at his pillows, and one at his feet, where the body of Jeshu had lain.

And they say to her,

Woman, why weepest thou ?

She saith to them,

Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

This said she, and turned herself back, and saw Jeshu standing, and knew not that it was Jeshu.

Jeshu saith to her,

Woman, why weepest thou? and whom seekest thou ?

But she thought he was the gardener, and said to him,

Sir, if thou have taken him away, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will go (and) take him away.

Jeshu saith to her,

Mariam.

She turned and saith to him in Hebrew,

Rabuni, which is saying,

Malphona.

Jeshu saith to her, Touch * me not; for not yet have I ascended to my Father:

but go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my Father, and to your Father, to my God, and to your God.

Then went Mariam Magdalitha, and announced to the disciples that she had seen our Lord, and (that) these (words) he had spoken to her.


* Or, approach.


XLIX. 20:19

WHEN it was the evening of that day which (was) the first in the weeks, and the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jihudoyee, came Jeshu, stood among them, and said to them, Peace (be) with you. *

This he said, and showed them his hands and his side.

And the disciples rejoiced when they saw our Lord.

Then said Jeshu unto them,

Peace (be) with you:

as my Father sent me, I also send you.

And when he had said these, he breathed on them, and said to them,

Receive the Spirit of Holiness: †

if you forgive sins to a man, they shall be forgiven to him; and if you retain (the sins) of a man, they are retained.

But Thoma, one of the twelve, he who was called the Twin, was not there with them when Jeshu came.

And the disciples say to him,

We have seen our Lord.

But he said to them,

Unless I see in his hands the places of the nails, and put into them my fingers, and extend my hand into his side, I believe not.


* Shalomo amkun.

† Kabélu Rucho da-Kudsho.


L. 20:26

AND after eight days again within were the disciples, and Thoma with them.

And Jeshu came, while the doors were shut, stood in the midst, and said to them,

Peace (be) with you.

And he said to Thoma,

Bring thy finger hither and see my hands, and bring thy hand and thrust it into my side, and be not unbelieving but believing.

And Thoma answered and said to him,

My Lord, and my God ! *

Jeshu saith to him,

Now that thou hast seen, thou hast believed:

blessed are they who have not seen me, and have believed.

But many other signs did Jeshu before his disciples:

those are not written in this record; but these are written, that you may believe that Jeshu is the Meshicha, the Son of Aloha, and that when you have believed you may have in his name the life which is eternal.

* Mari Valohi.


The Preaching Of Juchanon – Chapter 21

LI. 21:1

AFTER these Jeshu again showed himself to his disciples at the sea of Tiberios; and he showed (himself) thus.

There were together Shemun Kipha, and Thoma who was called the Twin, and Nathanael, he who was of Kotna of Galila, and the sons of Zabdai, and two other of the disciples.

Shemun Kipha saith to them,

I go to net fishes.

They say to him,

We also go with thee.

And they went forth and ascended into a vessel; and through that night they netted nothing.

But when it was morning Jeshu stood on the sea shore; but the disciples knew not that it was Jeshu. And Jeshu said to them, Children, have you any thing to eat ?

They say to him,

No.

He saith to them,

Cast your net on the right side of the vessel, and you shall find.

And they cast (it), and could not draw the net for the multitude of fishes which it held.

And that disciple whom Jeshu loved said to Kipha,

This is our Lord.

But Shemun, when he heard that it was our Lord, took his tunic, and threw it over his loins, for he was naked, and cast himself into the sea to come to Jeshu.

But the other disciples came in the vessel, for they were not far from the land, but as two hundred ameen, and they drew that net of fishes.

Then when they had ascended the land, they saw coals laid, and fish laid upon them, and bread.

And Jeshu said,

Bring of the fish which you have now caught.

And Shemun Kipha went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three:

yet for all this weight that net was not broken.

And Jeshu said to them,

Come, dine.

But one of the disciples did not dare to ask him, Who is he? for they knew that it was our Lord.

And Jeshu drew near, and took bread, and fish, and gave to them.

This is the third time that Jeshu was seen by his disciples when he had risen from among the dead.

LII. 21:15

WHEN they had dined, Jeshu said to Shemun Kipha,

Shemun bar Jona, lovest thou me more than these ?

He saith to him,

Yes, my Lord, thou knowest that I love thee.

Jeshu saith to him,

Feed my lambs.

He saith to him again the second time,

Shemun bar Jona, lovest thou me ?

He saith to him,

Yes, my Lord, thou knowest that I love thee.

Jeshu saith to him,

Feed my sheep.

Jeshu saith to him again the third time,

Shemun bar Jona, lovest thou me ?

And it grieved Kipha that he said to him the third time,

Lovest thou me ?

And he said to him,

My Lord, all things thou understandest, thou knowest that I love thee.

Jeshu saith to him,

Feed my sheep.

Amen, I say to thee, When thou wast young, thou didst gird thy loins and walk whithersoever thou willedst; but when thou art old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another will bind thy loins, and conduct thee whither thou willest not.

But this he said, to show by what death he was to glorify Aloha.

And when he had said these, he said to him,

Come after me.

LIII. 21:20

AND Shemun turned, and saw the disciple whom Jeshu loved following; he, who leaned at the supper upon the bosom of Jeshu, and said,

My Lord, who is he that betrayeth thee ?

This when Kipha saw, he said to Jeshu,

My Lord, and this, what ?

Jeshu saith to him,

If I will that this wait until I come, what (is that) to thee ? Come thou after me.

And that word went forth among the brethren, that that disciple dieth not.

But Jeshu did not say, He dieth not, but, If I will that this (man) wait until I come, what (is that) to thee ?

This is the disciple who hath testified of all these, and hath also written them:

and we know that the truth is his testimony.

There are also many other things which Jeshu hath done, those that if one by one they were written, not the world also itself, as I think, would suffice for the books that could be written.

Finished is the Holy Gospel, the Preaching of Juchanon the Evangelist, which he spake and preached in Greek in Ephesos.

THE END.
