The Preaching Of Juchanon
Chapters 16 – 18
These have I spoken with you, that you may not be offended.
They shall cast you out from their synagogues;
and the hour cometh when every one who shall kill you will think that a sacrifice he offereth unto Aloha.
And these will they do, because they have not known either my Father or me.
THESE have I spoken with you, that when their time hath come you may remember that I told you.
But these at first I did not tell you, because with you I was.
But now I go unto Him who sent me;
and no man of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
For I have told you these, and sorrow hath come and filled your hearts.
But I the truth say to you, That it is needful for you that I go;
for if I go not, the Paraclete cometh not to you.
But if I go, I will send him to you.
And when he hath come, he will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.
Of sin, because they believe not in me;
but of righteousness, because unto my Father I go, and you see me not again;
but of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
I have yet much to tell you, but you cannot now apprehend;
but when the Spirit of Truth hath come, he will lead you into all the truth;
for he will not speak of himself; *
but all that he shall hear he will speak, and the things to come † will he make known to you.
He will glorify me, because of mine he will take and will show you.
All whatever that the Father hath is mine:
on this account I have said to you, That of mine he will take, and will show you.
* From his own mind.
† The futurities.
A LITTLE (time), and you will not see me;
and again a little, and you shall see me, because I go to the Father.
And the disciples said one to another,
What is this that he saith to us?
A little (time), and you will not see me;
and again a little (while), and you shall see me, and because I go to my Father.
And they said,
What is this little (time of) which he hath spoken?
We know not what he saith.
But Jeshu knew that they sought to ask him;
and he said to them,
Concerning this do you inquire together that I told you, A little (time), and you will not see me;
and again a little, and you shall see me ?
Amen, amen, I tell you, That you will weep and lament, and the world will rejoice;
and to you shall be sorrow;
but your sorrow shall become joy.
A woman, when she travaileth, hath sorrow, that the day hath come for her giving birth;
but when she hath borne a son, she remembereth not her anguish, for joy that a child of man hath been born into the world.
You also now have sorrow;
but again I will see you, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
And in that day you will ask me nothing.
Amen, amen, I tell you, That whatsoever you shall ask my Father in my name, he will give you.
Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name : *
ask, and receive, that your joy may be full.
These in parables I have spoken with you;
but the hour cometh when I will not speak with you in parables, but manifestly;
and I will announce to you concerning the Father.
In that day you shall ask in my name;
and I say not to you that I will ask of the Father for you;
for the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that from the Father I came forth.
I came forth from the Father, and came into the world;
and again I leave the world, and go unto the Father.
His disciples say to him,
Behold, now openly speakest thou, and not one parable hast thou spoken.
Now know we that every thing thou knowest, and thou needest not that any man should ask thee.
By this we believe that from Aloha thou hast come forth.
* Some copies add here, Velo medem, and not any thing.
JESHU saith to them,
Behold, the hour shall come, and now cometh, that you will be dispersed (every) man to his place, and you will have left me alone.
But I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
These have I said to you, that in me you may have peace.
In the world you shall have distress;
but be of heart, I have conquered the world.
The Preaching Of Juchanon – Chapter 17
These spake Jeshu;
and, uplifting his eyes to heaven, he said,
My Father, the hour hath come;
glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee.
As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that to all whom thou hast given him he should give the life which is eternal.
But this is the life which is eternal, that they know thee, who art the true Aloha,* and Him whom thou hast sent, Jeshu Meshicha.
I have glorified thee on the earth;
the work which thou didst give me to do, I have finished it.
And now glorify thou me, my Father, with thyself, in that glory which I had with thee before the world was.
I have made known thy name unto the sons of man;
those whom thou gavest me from the world:
thine they were, and to me didst thou give them;
and they have kept thy word.
Now have they known that whatsoever thou hast given me is from thee.
And the words that thou gavest me I have given them, and they have received, and have known assuredly that from thee I came forth, and have believed that thou didst send me.
And for them I pray;
not for the world I pray, but for them whom thou hast given me, because they are thine.
And every thing of mine is thine, and thine is mine, and I am glorified in them.
Henceforth I am not in the world;
but these are in the world, and I come to thee.
Holy Father, keep them through thy name, that (name) which thou hast given to me, that they may be one as we are.
While I was with them in the world, I kept them through thy name:
those whom thou gavest me I have kept, and a man of them is not lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled.
* The Aloha of truth.
BUT now I come to thee, and these (things) I speak in the world, that they may have my joy completed in themselves.
I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world.
Not that thou wouldest take them out of the world do I pray, but that thou wouldest keep them from the evil;
for they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Father, sanctify them through thy truth;
for thy word is truth.
As me thou hast sent into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated for the truth.
Nor for these do I pray only, but also for those who shall believe in me through their word;
that they all may be one, as thou, my Father, (art) in me, and I in thee, that they also in us one may be;
that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou hast given me have I given unto them, that they may be one as we are one;
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected in one;
and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and that thou hast loved them, as me also thou hast loved.
Father, those whom thou hast given I will that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see that glory of mine, which thou hast given to me;
for thou lovedst me before the foundations of the world.
My righteous Father, the world hath not known thee;
but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
And I have made known unto them thy name, and I make it known that the love itself, wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I may be in them.
The Preaching Of Juchanon – Chapter 18
THESE said Jeshu, and went forth with his disciples over the ford of Kedrun, where there was a garden, which he entered with his disciples.
But Jihuda, the traitor, also knew that place, because many-a-time had Jeshu there with his disciples convened.
Jihuda then took a band, and from the chief priests and Pharishee he took officers, and came thither with lanterns and lamps and arms.
But Jeshu, who knew every thing that should come upon him, went forth and said to them,
Whom seek you?
They say to him,
Jeshu saith to them,
And Jihuda the traitor was also standing with them.
And when Jeshu had said to them, I am, they went backward and fell upon the ground.
And Jeshu again asked them,
Whom seek you ?
Then they said,
Jeshu saith to them,
I have told you that I am;
and if me you seek, let these go.
That the word might be fulfilled which he spake,
Of those whom thou hast given me I have not lost even one.
But Shemun Kipha had a sword upon him, and he drew it, and smote the servant of the high priest, and took off his right ear.
And the name of the servant was Molek.
Jeshu said to Kipha,
Put up the sword into its sheath;
the cup which my Father hath given me shall I not drink it ?
Then the band and the captains and the officials of the Jihudoyee took Jeshu and bound him, and brought him unto Chanan first, because he was father-in-law of Kaiapha, he who was the high priest of that year.
Now it was Kaiapha, he, who had counselled the Jihudoyee that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
But Shemun Kipha, and one of the other disciples, came after Jeshu.
And that disciple knew the chief of the priests, and went in with Jeshu into the hall.
But Shemun stood without at the door.
And that other disciple, who knew the chief of the priests, went out and told the keeper of the door to admit Shemun.
But the damsel keeping the door said to Shemun,
Art thou also of the disciples of this man ?
He saith to her,
And the servants and officials were standing, and they had set a fire to warm them, because it was cold;
and Shemun stood also with them and warmed himself.
And the high priest questioned Jeshu concerning his disciples, and concerning his doctrine.
And Jeshu said to him,
I openly discoursed with the people, and, at all time, taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where all the Jihudoyee assemble.
And nothing in secret have I spoken.
Why askest thou me ?
Ask them who have heard what I have said with them.
Behold, they know every thing that I have said.
And as these (words) he spake, one of the officers who stood (by) struck Jeshu upon his cheek, and said to him,
Thus givest thou the answer to the chief of the priests ?
Jeshu replied and said to him,
If wickedly I have spoken, bear witness of the evil;
but if well, why hast thou struck me ?
But Chanan had sent Jeshu bound unto Kaiapha, chief of the priests.
And Shemun Kipha stood and warmed (himself), and they say to him,
Thou art also one of his disciples ?
And he denied and said,
I am not.
One of the servants of the chief of the priests said to him, the brother of him whose ear Shemun had cut off,
Did not I see thee with him in the garden ?
And again Shemun denied.
And in the same hour the cock crowed.
NOW they led Jeshu from Kaiapha into the praetorium, and it was early.
But they would not enter the praetorium, that they might not be defiled, until they should have eaten the petscha.
But Pilatos came forth to them without, and said to them,
What accusation have you against this man ?
They answered and said to him,
If he were not a worker of evils, we would not to thee have delivered him.
Pilatos saith to them,
Take you him, and judge him according to your law.
The Jihudoyee say to him,
It is not lawful for us to put any one to death.
That the word that Jeshu spake might be accomplished, when he declared by what death he should die.
But Pilatos entered the Praetorium, and called Jeshu, and said to him,
Art thou the king of the Jihudoyee ?
Jeshu saith to him,
Of thyself sayest thou this, or did others tell thee concerning me ?
Pilatos saith to him,
Am I a Jihudoya?
The sons of thy people and the chief priests have delivered thee to me:
what hast thou done ?
Jeshu saith to him,
My kingdom is not from this world.
If from this world were my kingdom, my servants would have fought, that I should not have been delivered to the Jihudoyee.
But now my kingdom is not from hence.
Pilatos saith to him,
Then thou art a king ?
Jeshu saith to him,
Thou hast said that I am a king.
For this am I born, and for this I came into the world, to testify of the truth.
Every one who is of the truth heareth my voice.
Pilatos said to him,
What is the truth ?
And when he had said this, he went forth again to the Jihudoyee, and said to them,
I find not one cause in him.
But you have a custom that one I should release to you at the petscha.
Will you, therefore, that I release to you this King of the Jihudoyee ?
And they all cried and said,
Not this, but Bar Aba.
Now this Bar Aba was a robber.
