Jn316 tract

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  

John 1 – The Bible

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9 That was the true Light, which lights up every person that comes into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not (did not recognize or accept him).
11 He came to his own people, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we looked upon his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of who I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared (revealed) him.
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you that prophet? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they to him, Who are you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What do you say of yourself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25 And they asked him, and said to him, Why you baptize then, if you be not that Christ, nor Elijah, neither that prophet?
26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there stands one among you, who you know not;
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s buckle I am not worthy to unloose.
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John sees Jesus coming to him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of who I said, After me comes a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said to me, Upon who you shall see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, What seek you? They said to him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where do you stay?
39 He said to them, Come and see. They came and saw where he stayed, and stayed with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
41 He first finds his own brother Simon, and said to him, We have found the Messiah, which is, being interpreted, the Christ (the Anointed One).
42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus looked at him him, he said, You are Simon the son of Jona: you shall be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
43 The day following Jesus would go into Galilee, and finds Philip, and said to him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip finds Nathanael, and says to him, We have found him, of who Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46 And Nathanael said to him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and see.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, Look here, an Israelite indeed, in who is no deceit!
48 Nathanael said to him, How do you know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.
49 Nathanael answered and said to him, Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.
50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, you believe? you shall see greater things than these.
51 And he said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, After this you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John 2

1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they needed more wine, the mother of Jesus said to him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus said to her, Woman, what have I to do with you? my hour is not yet come.
5 His mother said to the servants, Whatever he says to you, do it.
6 And there were stood there six waterpots made from stone, after the practice of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three measures each.
7 Jesus said to them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
8 And he said to them, Draw out now, and carry to the governor of the feast. And they carried it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made into wine, and knew not from where it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And said to him, Everyone at the beginning gives out good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but you have kept the good wine until last.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there some days.
13 And the Jews’ Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the exchangers 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 tipped out the money-changer’s cash, and overthrew the tables;
16 And said to them that sold doves, Take these things away; do make not my Father’s house an house of business.
17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of Your house has consumed me.
18 Then answered the Jews and said to him, What sign do you show to us, seeing that you do these things?
19 Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty-six years was this temple in building, and will you rebuild it 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 to them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

John 3

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said to him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that you do, unless God is with him.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a person is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus said to 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 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless 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 to you, You must be born again.
8 The wind blows wherever it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell from where it comes, and where it goes next: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said to him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said to him, Are you a master of Israel, and know not these things?
11 Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what we do know, and testify what we have seen; and you receive not our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, 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 That whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 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, in case his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may appear, that they are created in God.
22 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judæa; and there he stayed with them, and baptized.
23 And John also was baptizing in Ænon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.
24 For John was not yet cast into prison.
25 Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying.
26 And they came to John, and said to him, Rabbi, he that was with you the other side of Jordan, to who you bare witness, behold, the same baptizes, and all people come to him.
27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, unless it be given him from heaven.
28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ (the Anointed One), but that I am sent before him.
29 He that has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
31 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 speaks of; and no man receives his testimony.
33 He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that God is true.
34 For he whom God hath sent speaks the words of God: for God gives not the Spirit by limit to him.
35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand.
36 He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.busines
