Friday Gospel Readings “For this am I born and for this I came”

John 16:1 – These have I spoken with you, that you may not be offended.

John 16:2 – 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.

John 16:3 – And these will they do, because they have not known either my Father or me.

John 16:4 – 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.

John 16:5 – But now I go unto Him who sent me; and no man of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

John 16:6 – For I have told you these, and sorrow hath come and filled your hearts.

John 16:7 – 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.

John 16:8 – And when he hath come, he will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.

John 16:9 – Of sin, because they believe not in me;

John 16:10 – but of righteousness, because unto my Father I go, and you see me not again;

John 16:11 – but of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

John 16:12 – I have yet much to tell you, but you cannot now apprehend;

John 16:13 – but when the Spirit of Truth hath come, he will lead you into all the truth;

for he will not speak of himself; [From his own mind.] but all that he shall hear he will speak, and the things to come [The futurities.] will he make known to you.

John 16:14 – He will glorify me, because of mine he will take and will show you.

John 16:15 – 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.

John 16:16 – A LITTLE (time), and you will not see me;

and again a little, and you shall see me, because I go to the Father.

John 16:17 – 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.

John 16:18 – And they said,

What is this little (time of) which he hath spoken?

We know not what he saith.

John 16:19 – 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 ?

John 16:20 – 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.

John 16:21 – 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.

John 16:22 – You also now have sorrow;

but again I will see you, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

John 16:23 – 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.

John 16:24 – Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name :

[Some copies add here, Velo medem, and not any thing.] ask, and receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:25 – 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.

John 16:26 – In that day you shall ask in my name;

and I say not to you that I will ask of the Father for you;

John 16:27 – for the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that from the Father I came forth.

John 16:28 – I came forth from the Father, and came into the world;

and again I leave the world, and go unto the Father.

John 16:29 – His disciples say to him,

Behold, now openly speakest thou, and not one parable hast thou spoken.

John 16:30 – 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.

John 16:31 – JESHU saith to them,

Believe !

John 16:32 – 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.

John 16:33 – 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.


John 17:1 – 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.

John 17:2 – 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.

John 17:3 – But this is the life which is eternal, that they know thee, who art the true Aloha, [The Aloha of truth.] and Him whom thou hast sent, Jeshu Meshicha.

John 17:4 – I have glorified thee on the earth;

the work which thou didst give me to do, I have finished it.

John 17:5 – And now glorify thou me, my Father, with thyself, in that glory which I had with thee before the world was.

John 17:6 – 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.

John 17:7 – Now have they known that whatsoever thou hast given me is from thee.

John 17:8 – 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.

John 17:9 – And for them I pray;

not for the world I pray, but for them whom thou hast given me, because they are thine.

John 17:10 – And every thing of mine is thine, and thine is mine, and I am glorified in them.

John 17:11 – 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.

John 17:12 – 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.

John 17:13 – BUT now I come to thee, and these (things) I speak in the world, that they may have my joy completed in themselves.

John 17:14 – 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.

John 17:15 – Not that thou wouldest take them out of the world do I pray, but that thou wouldest keep them from the evil;

John 17:16 – for they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

John 17:17 – Father, sanctify them through thy truth;

for thy word is truth.

John 17:18 – As me thou hast sent into the world, I also have sent them into the world.

John 17:19 – And for their sakes I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated for the truth.

John 17:20 – Nor for these do I pray only, but also for those who shall believe in me through their word;

John 17:21 – 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.

John 17:22 – And the glory which thou hast given me have I given unto them, that they may be one as we are one;

John 17:23 – 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.

John 17:24 – 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.

John 17:25 – My righteous Father, the world hath not known thee;

but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

John 17:26 – 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.


John 18:1 – 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.

John 18:2 – But Jihuda, the traitor, also knew that place, because many-a-time had Jeshu there with his disciples convened.

John 18:3 – Jihuda then took a band, and from the chief priests and Pharishee he took officers, and came thither with lanterns and lamps and arms.

John 18:4 – But Jeshu, who knew every thing that should come upon him, went forth and said to them,

Whom seek you?

John 18:5 – They say to him, Jeshu Natsroia.

Jeshu saith to them, I am.

And Jihuda the traitor was also standing with them.

John 18:6 – And when Jeshu had said to them, I am, they went backward and fell upon the ground.

John 18:7 – And Jeshu again asked them,

Whom seek you ?

Then they said,

Jeshu Natsroia.

John 18:8 – Jeshu saith to them, I have told you that I am;

and if me you seek, let these go.

John 18:9 – That the word might be fulfilled which he spake,

Of those whom thou hast given me I have not lost even one.

John 18:10 – 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.

John 18:11 – Jeshu said to Kipha,

Put up the sword into its sheath;

the cup which my Father hath given me shall I not drink it ?

John 18:12 – Then the band and the captains and the officials of the Jihudoyee took Jeshu and bound him,

John 18:13 – and brought him unto Chanan first, because he was father-in-law of Kaiapha, he who was the high priest of that year.

John 18:14 – Now it was Kaiapha, he, who had counselled the Jihudoyee that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

John 18:15 – 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.

John 18:16 – 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.

John 18:17 – But the damsel keeping the door said to Shemun,

Art thou also of the disciples of this man ?

He saith to her,


John 18:18 – 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.

John 18:19 – And the high priest questioned Jeshu concerning his disciples, and concerning his doctrine.

John 18:20 – 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.

John 18:21 – Why askest thou me ?

Ask them who have heard what I have said with them.

Behold, they know every thing that I have said.

John 18:22 – 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 ?

John 18:23 – Jeshu replied and said to him,

If wickedly I have spoken, bear witness of the evil;

but if well, why hast thou struck me ?

John 18:24 – But Chanan had sent Jeshu bound unto Kaiapha, chief of the priests.

John 18:25 – 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.

John 18:26 – 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 ?

John 18:27 – And again Shemun denied.

And in the same hour the cock crowed.

John 18:28 – 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.

John 18:29 – But Pilatos came forth to them without, and said to them,

What accusation have you against this man ?

John 18:30 – They answered and said to him,

If he were not a worker of evils, we would not to thee have delivered him.

John 18:31 – 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.

John 18:32 – That the word that Jeshu spake might be accomplished, when he declared by what death he should die.

John 18:33 – But Pilatos entered the Praetorium, and called Jeshu, and said to him,

Art thou the king of the Jihudoyee ?

John 18:34 – Jeshu saith to him,

Of thyself sayest thou this, or did others tell thee concerning me ?

John 18:35 – 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 ?

John 18:36 – 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.

John 18:37 – 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.

John 18:38 – 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.

John 18:39 – 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 ?

John 18:40 – And they all cried and said,

Not this, but Bar Aba.

Now this Bar Aba was a robber.
