The Gospel Reports

John 19-20-21

{John 19:42 – … and the sepulchre was near}

John 19:1 – Then Pilatos scourged Jeshu.

John 19:2 – And the soldiers entwined a crown of thorns, and set it on his head;

and they covered him with robes of purple,

John 19:3 – and said,

Hail to thee, King of the Jihudoyee !

and struck him upon his cheeks.

John 19:4 – 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).

John 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 !

John 19:6 – But when the chief priests and officials saw him, they cried out, saying,

Crucify him, crucify him ! [Or, suspend him.]

Pilatos saith to them,

Take you him and crucify him; [elevate him on the cross.]

for I find in him no cause.

John 19:7 – 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.

John 19:8 – When Pilatos heard that word, he the more feared.

John 19:9 – And he entered again the praetorium, and said to Jeshu,

Whence art thou ?

But Jeshu gave him no answer.

John 19:10 – Pilatos saith to him,

With me speakest thou not ?

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

John 19:11 – 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.

John 19:12 – 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.

John 19:13 – 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.

John 19:14 – And it was the preparation for the petscha.

AND it was about the sixth hour.

And he said to the Jihudoyee,

Behold your king !

John 19:15 – But they cried out,

Take him away, take him away !

crucify him, [Or, suspend him.] crucify him !

Pilatos saith to them,

Your king shall I crucify ?

The chief priests say to him,

We have no king but Cesar.

John 19:16 – Then delivered he him to them, that they might crucify him.

And they took Jeshu, and led him forth,

John 19:17 – bearing his cross to a place which is called A Skull, but in Hebrew is Gogultha:

John 19:18 – there they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, [Or, one here, and one here.] and Jeshu in the midst.

John 19:19 – 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.

John 19:20 – 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.

John 19:21 – 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.

John 19:22 – Pilatos saith,

That which I have written, I have written.

John 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.

John 19:24 – And they said one to another,

Let us not rend it, but play for it by playing, [Naphes eleh mephas.] (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.

John 19:25 – 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.

John 19:26 – Jeshu seeth his mother, and that disciple whom he loved, standing;

and he said to his mother,

Woman, behold thy son ! [Athto, ho barek.]

John 19:27 – and he said to that disciple,

Behold thy mother ! [Ho emok.]

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

John 19:28 – After these Jeshu knew that every thing would be accomplished, and, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said,

I thirst. [Tshe-no.]

John 19:29 – 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.

John 19:30 – And when Jeshu had taken the vinegar, he said,

Behold, it is finished ! [Ho Mashálam.]

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

John 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.

John 19:32 – And the soldiers came, and brake the legs of the first, and of that other who was crucified with him;

John 19:33 – but when they came unto Jeshu, they saw that he was dead already, and they brake not his legs.

John 19:34 – But one of the soldiers struck him in his side with the lance, and forthwith there came out blood and water.

John 19:35 – 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.

John 19:36 – For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled, which said, that

A bone shall not be broken in him.

John 19:37 – And again another scripture which said,

They shall look upon him whom they pierced.

John 19:38 – 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.

John 19:39 – 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.

John 19:40 – And they took the body of Jeshu, and wrapped it in cloths and in balsams, as is the manner of the Jihudoyee to bury.

John 19:41 – 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.

John 19:42 – And they laid there Jeshu, because the shabath was coming in and the sepulchre was near.


{John 20:30 – But many other signs did Jeshu}

John 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.

John 20:2 – 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.

John 20:3 – And Shemun went forth, and that other disciple, and they came to the house of burial.

John 20:4 – And they ran both of them together;

but that disciple ran before Shemun, and came first to the house of burial.

John 20:5 – And looking, he saw the cloths lying, but entering he entered not.

John 20:6 – But Shemun came after him, and went into the house of burial, and saw the cloths set,

John 20:7 – and the napkin that had been bound upon his head, not with the cloths, but folded up, and laid apart in one place.

John 20:8 – Then went in also that disciple who came first to the house of burial, and he saw, and believed.

John 20:9 – For not yet knew they the scriptures, that he was to rise from the dead.

John 20:10 – And those disciples went again to their place.

John 20:11 – But Mariam stood at the sepulchre weeping:

and while weeping, she looked into the sepulchre,

John 20:12 – 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.

John 20:13 – 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.

John 20:14 – This said she, and turned herself back, and saw Jeshu standing, and knew not that it was Jeshu.

John 20:15 – 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.

John 20:16 – Jeshu saith to her,


She turned and saith to him in Hebrew,


which is saying, Malphona.

John 20:17 – Jeshu saith to her,

Touch [Or, approach.] 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.

John 20:18 – Then went Mariam Magdalitha, and announced to the disciples that she had seen our Lord, and (that) these (words) he had spoken to her.

John 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. [Shalomo amkun.]

John 20:20 – This he said, and showed them his hands and his side.

And the disciples rejoiced when they saw our Lord.

John 20:21 – Then said Jeshu unto them,

Peace (be) with you:

as my Father sent me, I also send you.

John 20:22 – And when he had said these, he breathed on them, and said to them,

Receive the Spirit of Holiness: [Kabélu Rucho da-Kudsho.]

John 20:23 – 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.

John 20:24 – But Thoma, one of the twelve, he who was called the Twin, was not there with them when Jeshu came.

John 20:25 – 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.

John 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.

John 20:27 – 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.

John 20:28 – And Thoma answered and said to him,

My Lord, and my God !

[Mari Valohi.]

John 20:29 – Jeshu saith to him,

Now that thou hast seen, thou hast believed:

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

John 20:30 – But many other signs did Jeshu before his disciples:

those are not written in this record;

John 20:31 – 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.


{John 21:22 – Jeshu saith to him, … Come thou after me}

John 21:1 – AFTER these Jeshu again showed himself to his disciples at the sea of Tiberios;

and he showed (himself) thus.

John 21:2 – 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.

John 21:3 – 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.

John 21:4 – But when it was morning Jeshu stood on the sea shore;

but the disciples knew not that it was Jeshu.

John 21:5 – And Jeshu said to them,

Children, have you any thing to eat ?

They say to him,


John 21:6 – 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.

John 21:7 – 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.

John 21:8 – 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.

John 21:9 – Then when they had ascended the land, they saw coals laid, and fish laid upon them, and bread.

John 21:10 – And Jeshu said,

Bring of the fish which you have now caught.

John 21:11 – 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.

John 21:12 – 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.

John 21:13 – And Jeshu drew near, and took bread, and fish, and gave to them.

John 21:14 – This is the third time that Jeshu was seen by his disciples when he had risen from among the dead.

John 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.

John 21:16 – 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.

John 21:17 – 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


John 21:18 – 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.

John 21:19 – 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.

John 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 ?

John 21:21 – This when Kipha saw, he said to Jeshu,

My Lord, and this, what ?

John 21:22 – Jeshu saith to him,

If I will that this wait until I come, what (is that) to thee ?

Come thou after me.

John 21:23 – 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 ?

John 21:24 – This is the disciple who hath testified of all these, and hath also written them:

and we know that the truth is his testimony.

John 21:25 – 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.
