Water Baptism vs. Spirit Baptism
John 1:24-34, "24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 25  And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest you  then, if you be not THAT MESSIAH, nor Elijah, neither THAT PROPHET? 26 [MSG/SCW] John answered them, saying, [FF] I baptize with water: but there stands one among you, whom you know not; 27  [APB] He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose. ... The next day John sees YESHUA coming unto him, and saith, [LGM/GTY] Behold THE LAMB OF GOD, which takes away the sin of the world. ... 32  And John bare record, saying, [SS] I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33  And I knew him not: but [FF/SS] he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, [WBG] Upon whom you shall see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizes with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that [GOF] this is THE SON OF GOD."

YESHUA answered and said unto him, [WBG] Before that Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you. 49  Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, you art THE SON OF GOD; you art THE KING OF ISRAEL. 50  YESHUA answered and said unto him, [TYB/LTN] Because I said unto you, I saw you under the fig tree, B E L I E V E S T thou? you shall see greater things than these. 51  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, [WMF/WBG/GOF] [OBS/WBF] Hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon THE SON OF MAN."

Episode 2 (Narrative): The Marriage in Cana, John 2a

Water vs. Wine
John 2:1-11, "And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee ... 3  And when they wanted wine, the mother of YESHUA saith unto him, They have no wine. ... 6  [LMG] And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece [total 120 gallons]. 7  YESHUA saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. [OHF] And they filled them up to the brim. ... 9  When the ruler of the feast had tasted [FF/SS] the water that was made wine ... the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but you hast kept the good wine until now. 11  [WBG] This beginning of miracles did YESHUA in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; [ARH] [TYB] and his disciples B E L I E V E D on him."

Episode 3 (Narrative): The Cleansing of the Temple, John 2b

Ritual vs. Zeal
"And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and YESHUA went up to Jerusalem, 14  [LMG] And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15  And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16  And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, [FF/SS] The zeal of thine house has eaten me up. 18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign show you unto us, seeing that you do these things? 19 YESHUA answered and said unto them, [LWM/GTY] Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20  Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt you rear it up in three days? 21  But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22  When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; [TYB] and they B E L I E V E D the scripture, and the word which YESHUA had said."

Episode 4 (Discourse): Nicodemus and the Disciples of John, John 3

Water vs. Spirit
John 3:1-7, "[LGM] There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2  The same came to YESHUA by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that you art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that you do, except God be with him. 3  YESHUA answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, [GTY] [MBA] Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5  YESHUA answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, [FF/SS] Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7  Marvel not that I said unto you, you must be born again."

John 3:13-21, "[NSG] And no man has ascended up to heaven, [CIW] but he that came down from heaven, [OBS/WBF] even THE SON OF MAN which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must THE SON OF MAN be lifted up: 15 [ARH/PSG/EBN] That whoever B E L I E V E S in him [IHWL] should not perish, but have eternal life. 16  [GSW] For God so loved the world, [GOS] that he gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, [WBS] that whoever B E L I E V E S in him [SNP] should not perish, [EL] but have eternal life. 17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him could be saved. 18  He that B E L I E V E S on him is not condemned: but he that B E L I E V E S not is condemned already, [EBN] because he has not B E L I E V E D in the name of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD. 19 [WKN/ORN] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20  For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21  But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."

New:
[GLW] 16  For God so loved the world,
[GOS] that he gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,
[WBH] that whoever B E L I E V E S in him
[SNP] should not perish,
[EL] but have eternal life

John 3:25-36, "Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. ... 27  John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28 you yourselves bear me witness, that I said, [NTL] I am not THE MESSIAH, [SWL] but that I am sent before him. ... 31 [TL/CIW] He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what he has seen and heard, that he testifies; [WKN/ORN] and no man receives his testimony. 33  [ARH] He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that God is true. 34 [MSG] For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God: [OBS] for God gives not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35  The Father loves THE SON, and has given all things into his hand. 36  [WBS/EL] He that B E L I E V E S on THE SON has eternal life: and he that B E L I E V E S not THE SON shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him."

Episode 5 (Discourse): The Samaritan Woman, John 4a

Well Water vs. Spring Water
John 4:5-18, "Then comes he to a city of Samaria [Shechem] ... 6  Now Jacob’s well was there. ... 7  There comes a woman of Samaria to draw water: YESHUA saith unto her, Give me to drink. ... 9  Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10  YESHUA answered and said unto her, If you knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to you, Give me to drink; [FFSS/MBA] you wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given you living water. 11  The woman saith unto him, Sir, you hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast you that living water? 12  Art you greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13  YESHUA answered and said unto her, Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: 14  But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; [IHWL] but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into eternal life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 YESHUA saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 17  The woman answered and said, I have no husband. YESHUA said unto her, you hast well said, I have no husband: 18  For you hast had five husbands; and he whom you now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst you truly. 19  The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that you art a prophet."

John 4:20-42, "[LMGTYM] Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21  YESHUA saith unto her, Woman, B E L I E V E me, the hour comes, when you shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 you worship you know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23  [FFSS/MBA] But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. 24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25  The woman saith unto him, I know that MESSIAH comes, which is called ANOINTED  [Greek: CHRIST]: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26  YESHUA saith unto her, I that speak unto you am he. ... 28  The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this THE MESSIAH? 30  Then they went out of the city, and came unto him. ... 39 [R/PBSG/B/BOG] And many of the Samaritans of that city B E L I E V E D on him for the saying of the woman. ... 41  And many more B E L I E V E D because of his own word; 42  And said ... we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed THE MESSIAH, THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD."

Episode 1 (Narrative): The Nobleman's Son, John 4b

John 4:46-54, "So YESHUA came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. 47  When he heard that YESHUA was come out of Judæa into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. ... 50  YESHUA saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son lives. And the man B E L I E V E D the word that YESHUA had spoken unto him, and he went his way. 51  And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son lives. ... 53  ... and himself B E L I E V E D, and his whole house. 54  This is again the second miracle that YESHUA did, when he was come out of Judæa into Galilee."

Episode 2 (Narrative): The Lame Man, John 5a

John 5:4-16, "Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. ... 5  And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. ... 8  YESHUA saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9  And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. 10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for you to carry thy bed. 11  He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. ... 14  Afterward YESHUA finds him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you. 15  The man departed, and told the Jews that it was YESHUA, which had made him whole. 16  And therefore did the Jews persecute YESHUA, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day."

Episode 3 (Discourse): The Word of Life, John 5b

John 5:17-47, "But YESHUA answered them, My Father works hitherto, and I work. 18  Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19  Then answered YESHUA and said unto them, ... 20  For the Father loves THE SON, and shows him all things that himself does ... 21  For as the Father raises up the dead, and quickens them; even so THE SON quickens whom he will. ... 24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, and B E L I E V E S on him that sent me, has eternal life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of THE SON OF GOD: and they that hear shall live. 26  For as the Father has life in himself; so has  he given to THE SON to have life in himself; 27  And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is THE SON OF MAN. 28  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. ... 37  And the Father himself, which has sent me, has borne witness of me. you have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38  And you have not his word abiding in you: for whom he has sent, him you B E L I E V E not. 39  Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40  And you will not come to me, that you would have life. ... 46  For had you B E L I E V E D Moses, you  would have B E L I E V E D me: for he wrote of me. 47  But if you B E L I E V E not his writings, how shall you B E L I E V E my words?"

Episode 4 (Narrative): The Feeding of the Five Thousand, John 6a

John 6:2-21, "And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. 3  And YESHUA went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. ... One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, 9  There is a lad here, which has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 10  ... in number about five thousand. 11  And YESHUA took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. ... 13  ... they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. 14  Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that YESHUA did, said, This is of a truth THAT PROPHET that should come into the world. 15 When YESHUA therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone. 16  And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, 17  And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. ... 18  And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. 19  So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see YESHUA walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship ... 21  Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went."

Episode 5 (Discourse): The Bread of Life, John 6b

John 6:22-71, "The day following ... 24  When the people therefore saw that YESHUA was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for YESHUA. ... 26  YESHUA answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, you seek me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27  Labour not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures unto eternal life, which THE SON OF MAN shall give unto you: for him has God the Father sealed. 28  Then said they unto him ... 31  Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32  Then YESHUA said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33  For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven, and gives life unto the world. ... 35 ... I am THE BREAD OF LIFE: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that B E L I E V E S on me shall never thirst. ... 40  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees THE SON, and B E L I E V E S on him, may have eternal life: and I will raise him up at the last day. ... 47  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that B E L I E V E S on me has eternal life. 48  I am THAT BREAD OF LIFE. 49  Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50  This is THE BREAD WHICH COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51  I am THE LIVING BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. ... 53  ... Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of THE SON OF MAN, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54  Whoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55  For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56  He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him. 57  As the living Father has  sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me. 58  This is THAT BREAD WHICH CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live for ever. ... 61  When YESHUA knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? 62  What and if you shall see THE SON OF MAN ascend up where he was before? 63  It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. ... 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67  Then said YESHUA unto the twelve, Will you also go away? 68  Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you hast the words of eternal life. 69  And we B E L I E V E and are sure that you art THAT ANOINTED , THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD."

Episode 6 (Discourse): The Living Water, John 7

John 7:1-52, "After these things YESHUA walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2  Now the Jews’ feast of tabernacles was at hand. ... 14 Now about the midst of the feast YESHUA went up into the temple, and taught. 15  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knows this man letters, having never learned? ... 21  YESHUA answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and you all marvel. ... 23  If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? ... Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? 26  But, lo, he speaks boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is THE  VERY ANOINTED ? 27  Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when ANOINTED  comes, no man knows whence he is. 28  Then cried YESHUA in the temple as he taught, saying, you both know me, and you know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom you know not. 29  But I know him: for I am from him, and he has sent me. ... 31  And many of the people B E L I E V E D on him, and said, When MESSIAH comes, will he do more miracles than these which this man has done?
32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him. ... 37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, YESHUA stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38  He that B E L I E V E S on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 (But this spoke he of the Spirit, which they that B E L I E V E on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that YESHUA was not yet glorified.)
40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41  Others said, This is THE MESSIAH. But some said, Shall MESSIAH come out of Galilee? ... 45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have you not brought him? 46  The officers answered, Never man spoke like this man. ... 50  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to YESHUA by night, being one of them,) 51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he does? 52  They answered and said unto him, Art you  also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee arises no prophet."

Main Topics:
Structure: Narrative-Discourse-Narrative, Discourse-Narrative, Conclusion

Episode 1 (Narrative): The Woman Taken In Adultery, John 8a

John 8:3-11, "And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4  They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5  Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6  This they said, tempting him, that they would have to accuse him. But YESHUA stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7  So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8  And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9  And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and YESHUA was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10  When YESHUA had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? has no man condemned you? 11  She said, No man, Lord. And YESHUA said unto her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more."

Episode 2 (Discourse): The Light of the World 8b

John 8:12-59, "Then spoke YESHUA again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13  The Pharisees therefore said unto him, you bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. 14  YESHUA answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but you cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. 15 you judge after the flesh ... 21  Then said YESHUA again unto them, I go my way, and you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, you cannot come. 22  Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, you  cannot come. 23  And he said unto them, you are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world. 24  I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you B E L I E V E not that I am he, you shall die in your sins. ... 28  Then said YESHUA unto them, When you have lifted up THE SON OF MAN, then shall you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things. 29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. 30  As he spoke these words, many B E L I E V E D on him. 31  Then said YESHUA to those Jews which B E L I E V E D on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; 32  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, you shall be made free? ... YESHUA saith unto them, If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40  But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 you do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 42  YESHUA said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43  Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word. 44 you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45  And because I tell you the truth, you B E L I E V E me not. 46  Which of you convinces me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not B E L I E V E me? 47  He that is of God hears God’s words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God. ... 51  Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. 52  Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that you  hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. 53  Art you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest you thyself? 54  YESHUA answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom you say, that he is your God: 55  Yet you have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying. 56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. 57  Then said the Jews unto him, you  art not yet fifty years old, and hast you seen Abraham? 58  YESHUA said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 59  Then took they up stones to cast at him: but YESHUA hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Episode 3 (Narrative): The Blind Man, John 9

John 9:1-39, "And as YESHUA passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. ... 3  YESHUA answered, ... 4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. 5  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6  When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7  And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. ... 13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 14  And it was the sabbath day when YESHUA made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15  Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 16  Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keeps not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. ... 26  Then said they to him again, What did he to you? how opened he thine eyes? 27  He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: wherefore would you hear it again? will you also be his disciples? 28  Then they reviled him, and said, you art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. 29  We know that God spoke unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. 30  The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that you know not from whence he is, and yet he has opened mine eyes. ... 32  Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. ... 34  They answered and said unto him, you were altogether born in sins, and dost you teach us? And they cast him out. 35  YESHUA heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost you B E L I E V E on THE SON OF GOD? 36  He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I may B E L I E V E on him? 37  And YESHUA said unto him, you hast both seen him, and it is he that talks with you. 38  And he said, Lord, I B E L I E V E. And he worshipped him. 39 And YESHUA said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not would see; and that they which see would be made blind. 40  And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41  YESHUA said unto them, If you were blind, you should have no sin: but now you  say, We see; therefore your sin remains."

Episode 4 (Discourse): The Good Shepherd, John 10

John 10:6-42, "This parable spoke YESHUA unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spoke unto them. 7  Then said YESHUA unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10  The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they would have life, and that they would have it more abundantly. 11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. ... 17  Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I would take it again. 18  No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. 19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. 20  And many of them said, He has a devil, and is mad; why hear you him? 21  Others said, These are not the words of him that has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? ... 24  Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost you make us to doubt? If you be THE MESSIAH, tell us plainly. 25  YESHUA answered them, ... 30  I and my Father are one. 31  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32  YESHUA answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do you stone me? 33  The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone you not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 34  YESHUA answered them, ... 36  Say you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, you blasphemest; because I said, I am THE SON OF GOD? ... 39  Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, 40  And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode. 41  And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spoke of this man were true. 42  And many B E L I E V E D on him there.

Episode 5 (Narrative): Lazarus, Mary, and the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, John 11-12a

John 11:1-46, "Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. ... 20  Then Martha, as soon as she heard that YESHUA was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21  Then said Martha unto YESHUA, Lord, if you hadst been here, my brother had not died. ... 25  YESHUA said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that B E L I E V E S in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26  And whoever lives and B E L I E V E S in me shall never die. B E L I E V E S T you  this? 27  She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I B E L I E V E that you art THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, which should come into the world. ... 32  Then when Mary was come where YESHUA was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if you hadst been here, my brother had not died. 33  When YESHUA therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, ... 35  YESHUA wept. 36  Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 37  And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died? ... 39  YESHUA said, Take you away the stone. ... 41  Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. ... 43  And ... he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44  And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes ... YESHUA saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. 45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which YESHUA did, B E L I E V E D on him. 46  But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things YESHUA had done."

John 11:47-54, "Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man does many miracles. 48  If we let him thus alone, all men will B E L I E V E on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. 49  And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, you know nothing at all, 50  Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. 51  And this spoke he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that YESHUA should die for that nation; 52  And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. 53  Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. 54  YESHUA therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples."

John 12:1-11, "Then YESHUA six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. 2  There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 3  Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of YESHUA, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. ... 7  Then said YESHUA, Let her alone: against the day of my burying has she kept this. 8  For the poor always you have with you; but me you have not always. 9  Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for YESHUA’ sake only, but that they would see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. 10 But the chief priests consulted that they would put Lazarus also to death; 11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and B E L I E V E D on YESHUA."

John 12:12-19, "On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that YESHUA was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that comes in the name of the Lord. 14  And YESHUA, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15  Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King comes, sitting on an ass’s colt. 16  These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when YESHUA was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. 17  The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. 18  For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. 19  The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive you how you prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him."

John 12:20-29, "And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: 21  The same came therefore to Philip ... and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see YESHUA. ... 23 And YESHUA answered them, saying, The hour is come, that THE SON OF MAN should be glorified. 24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit. 25  He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. 27  Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28  Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29  The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him."

Conclusion, John 12b

John 12:37-50, "But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they B E L I E V E D not on him: 38  That the saying of Esaias the prophet would be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who has B E L I E V E D our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39  Therefore they could not B E L I E V E, because that Esaias said again, 40  He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41  These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spoke of him. ... 44 YESHUA cried and said, He that B E L I E V E S on me, B E L I E V E S not on me, but on him that sent me. ... 46  I am come a light into the world, that whoever B E L I E V E S on me should not abide in darkness. ... 49  For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal."


PART 2: THE WORD MADE FLESH

SECTION 4: THE LIGHT, JOHN 13-14

Main Topics:
Structure: Dialog, Dialog

Dialog 1: Supper, John 13

John 13:1-16, "Now before the feast of the passover, when YESHUA knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. ... 3 YESHUA knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 4  He rises from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 5  After that he pours water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. ... 12  So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know you what I have done to you? 13 you call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. 14  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15  For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. 16  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him."

John 13:18-35, "I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has  lifted up his heel against me. ... 23  Now there was leaning on YESHUA’ bosom one of his disciples, whom YESHUA loved. 24  Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spoke. 25  He then lying on YESHUA’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? 26  YESHUA answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, THE SON of Simon. ... 30  He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night. 31 Therefore, when he was gone out, YESHUA said, Now is THE SON OF MAN glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32  If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him. 33  Little children, yet a little while I am with you. you shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, you cannot come; so now I say to you. 34  A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35  By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another."

Dialog 2: Spirit, John 14

John 14:1-14, "Let not your heart be troubled: you B E L I E V E in God, B E L I E V E also in me. 2  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4  And whither I go you know, and the way you know. 5  Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither you goest; and how can we know the way? 6  YESHUA saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. 7  If you had known me, you  should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him. 8  Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it suffices us. 9  YESHUA saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast you not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father."

John 14:15-31, "If you love me, keep my commandments. 16  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. 18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19  Yet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also. 20  At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21  He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."


SECTION 5: THE LIFE, JOHN 15-17

Main Topics:
Structure: Monologue, Monologue, Monologue

Monologue 1: Love 15

John 15:1-27, "I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2  Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3  Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except you abide in me. 5  I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing. 6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7  If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you. 8  Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples. 9  As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: continue you in my love. 10  If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11  These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy would remain in you, and that your joy would be full. 12  This is my commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you. 13  Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 you are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. 15  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 16 you have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17  These things I command you, that you love one another. 18  If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. 19  If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20  Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21  But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22  If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. 23  He that hates me hates my Father also. 24  If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25  But this comes to pass, that the word would be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 26  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me: 27  And you also shall bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning."

Monologue 2: Farewell 16

John 16:1-33, "These things have I spoken unto you, that you should not be offended. 2  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time comes, that whoever kills you will think that he does God service. 3  And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4  But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5  But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asks me, Whither goest thou? 6  But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7  Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9  Of sin, because they B E L I E V E not on me; 10  Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and you see me no more; 11  Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12  I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. 13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15  All things that the Father has are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 16  A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me, because I go to the Father. 17  Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father? 18  They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith. 19  Now YESHUA knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do you enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and you shall not see me: and again, a little while, and you shall see me? 20  Verily, verily, I say unto you, That you shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 21  A woman when she is in travail has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. 22  And you now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man takes from you. 23  And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24  Hitherto have you asked nothing in my name: ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25  These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time comes, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. 26  At that day you shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 27  For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have B E L I E V E D that I came out from God. 28  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. 29  His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest you plainly, and speakest no proverb. 30  Now are we sure that you knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask you: by this we B E L I E V E that you camest forth from God. 31  YESHUA answered them, Do you  now B E L I E V E? 32  Behold, the hour comes, yea, is now come, that you  shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you would have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Monologue 3: Yeshua's Prayer, John 17

John 17:1-26, "These words spoke YESHUA, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify you: 2  As you hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you hast given him. 3  And this is life eternal, that they would know you the only true God, and YESHUA THE MESSIAH, whom you hast sent. 4  I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gavest me to do. 5  And now, O Father, glorify you me with thine own self with the glory which I had with you before the world was. 6  I have manifested thy name unto the men which you gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and you gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7  Now they have known that all things whatsoever you hast given me are of you. 8  For I have given unto them the words which you gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have B E L I E V E D that you didst send me. 9  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you hast given me; for they are thine. 10  And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom you hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12  While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that you gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but THE SON of perdition; that the scripture would be fulfilled. 13  And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they would have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14  I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15  I pray not that you shouldest take them out of the world, but that you shouldest keep them from the evil. 16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18  As you hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also would be sanctified through the truth. 20  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall B E L I E V E on me through their word; 21  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may B E L I E V E that you hast sent me. 22  And the glory which you gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23  I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you hast sent me, and hast loved them, as you hast loved me. 24  Father, I will that they also, whom you hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you hast given me: for you  lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25  O righteous Father, the world has not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you hast sent me. 26  And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith you hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."


SECTION 6: THE WORD, JOHN 18-21

Main Topics:
Structure: Narrative, Narrative, Narrative

Episode 1 (Narrative): Arrest, John 18

John 18:1-14, "When YESHUA had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. ... 3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, comes thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4  YESHUA therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? 5  They answered him, YESHUA of Nazareth. YESHUA saith unto them, I am he. ... 6  As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. ... 12  Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took YESHUA, and bound him."

John 18:19-24, "The high priest then asked YESHUA of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 20  YESHUA answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. 21  Why askest you me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said. 22  And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck YESHUA with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest you the high priest so? 23  YESHUA answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest you me?"

John 18:28-40, "Then led they YESHUA from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they may eat the passover. 29  Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring you against this man? 30  They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto you. ... 37  Pilate therefore said unto him, Art you a king then? YESHUA answered, you sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice. 38  Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. 39  But you have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will you therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 40  Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber."

Episode 2 (Narrative): Death, John 19

John 19:1-16, "Then Pilate therefore took YESHUA, and scourged him. 2  And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 3  And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 4  Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault in him. 5  Then came YESHUA forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! 6  When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take you him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. 7  The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself THE SON OF GOD. ... If you let this man go, you art not Cæsar’s friend: whoever makes himself a king speaks against Cæsar. ... 16  Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified."

John 19:28-37, "After this, YESHUA knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture would be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 29  Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 30  When YESHUA therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. ... 32  Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. 33  But when they came to YESHUA, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. 35  And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knows that he saith true, that you may B E L I E V E. 36  For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 37  And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced."

John 19:38-42, "And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of YESHUA, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he would take away the body of YESHUA: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of YESHUA. 39  And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to YESHUA by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. 40  Then took they the body of YESHUA, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41  Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. 42  There laid they YESHUA therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand."

Episode 3 (Narrative): Resurrection, John 20a

John 20:1-18, "The first day of the week comes Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and sees the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2  Then she runs, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom YESHUA loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3  Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4  So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5  And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6  Then comes Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and sees the linen clothes lie, 7  And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8  Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and B E L I E V E D. 9  For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. 10  Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. 11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre ... 14  And when she had ... turned herself back, and saw YESHUA standing ... 17  YESHUA saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. 18  Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her."

John 20:19-29, "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came YESHUA and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 20  And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. ... 24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when YESHUA came. 25  The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not B E L I E V E. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came YESHUA, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27  Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28  And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29  YESHUA saith unto him, Thomas, because you hast seen me, you hast B E L I E V E D: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have B E L I E V E D.

Conclusion, John 20b

The Purpose of the Book
John 20:30-31, "And many other signs truly did YESHUA in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31  [Fa] But these are written, that you would B E L I E V E that YESHUA is THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD; and that believing you would have life through his name."


POSTLOGUE, JOHN 21

Main Topics:
Episode Structure: Narrative, Discourse, Conclusion

Section 1 (Narrative): Post-Resurrection Ministry in Galilee, John 21a

John 21:1-23, "After these things YESHUA shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. 2  There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and THE SONs of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 3  Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with you. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4  But when the morning was now come, YESHUA stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was YESHUA. 5  Then YESHUA saith unto them, Children, have you any meat? They answered him, No. 6  And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. ... 9  As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 10  YESHUA saith unto them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught. 11  Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 12  YESHUA saith unto them, Come and dine. ... 13  YESHUA then comes, and takes bread, and gives them, and fish likewise. 14  This is now the third time that YESHUA shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead."

Section 2 (Discourse): Peter and John, John 21:15:23

"So when they had dined, YESHUA saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest you me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; you knowest that I love you. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. ... 18  Verily, verily, I say unto you, When you were young, you girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither you wouldest: but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird you, and carry you whither you wouldest not. 19  This spoke he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. 20  Then Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom YESHUA loved following ... 21  ... saith to YESHUA, Lord, and what shall this man do? 22  YESHUA saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? follow you me. 23  Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet YESHUA said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you?

Conclusion: The Things Yeshua Did, John 21b

John 21:24-25, "This is the disciple which testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25  And there are also many other things which YESHUA did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
