coming, in which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the

wombs that never bare, and the breasts that never gave sack.

30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains. Full on us; and to

81 the bills, Cover us. For if they do these things iu the green tree,

what shall be done in the dry?

32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

33 And when they came unto the place which is called The skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right

34 hand and the other on the left. And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And parting his gar

35 ments among them, they cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also scoffed at him, saying. He saved others; let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen.

36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, offering Mm

37 vinegar, and saying, If thou art the King of the Jews, save tliy

38 self. And there was also a superscription over him, This Is The

KING OP THE JEWS.

39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him,

40 saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us. Eut the other answered, and rebuking him said. Dost tbou r.ot even fear

41 God seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man

42 hath done nothing amiss. And be said, Jesus, remember me

43 when thou contest in thy kingdom. And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in Paradise.

44 And it was now about the sixth hour, and a darkness came

45 over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun's light failing:

46 and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, be said. Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, be gave up the ghost.

47 And when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God,

48 saying. Certainly, this was a righteous man. And all the multitudes that came together to this sight, when they beheld the

49 things that were done, returned smiting their breasts. And nil his acquaintance, and the women that followed with him from Galilee, stood afar off, seeing these things.

50 And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a councillor, a

51 good man and a righteous (he had not consented to their counsel and deed), a man of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who wr.s

52 looking for the kingdom of God: this man went to Pilate, aud

53 asked for the body of Jesus. And he took it down, and wrapt it in a linen cloth, aud laid him in a tomb that was hewn in stone,

54 where never man had yet lain. And it was the day of the Prep

55 arntion, and the sabbath drew on. And the women, which had come with him out of Galilee, followed after, and beheld the

56 tomb, and how his body was laid. Aud they returned, and prepared spices and ointments.

And on the sabbath they rested according to the commandment. 24 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came unto

2 the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared. And

3 they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. And they

4 entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it cnme to pass, while they were perplexed thereabout, behold, two

5 men stood by them in dazzling apparel: and as they were affrighted, . and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why

6 seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

7 saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of

8 sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And

9 they remembered his words, and returned from the tomb, and

10 told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest. Now they were Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James: and the other women with them told these things unto

11 the apostles. And these words appeared in their sight as idle

12 talk; and they disbelieved them. But Peter arose, and ran unto the tomb; and stooping and looking in, he seeth the linen cloths by themselves; and he departed to his home, wondering at that which was come to pass.

13 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was threescore furlongs from Jerusalem.

14 And they communed with each other of all these things which

15 had happened. And it came to pass, while they communed and questioned together, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with

16 them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know

17 him. And he said unto them, What communications are these that ye have one with another, as ye walk? And they stood still,

18 looking sad And one of them, named Cleopas, answering said . unto him, Dost thou alone sojourn in Jerusalem and not know

19 the things which are come to pass there in these days? And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty

20 in deed and word before God and all the people: and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to

21 death, and crucified him. But we hoped that it was he which should redeem Israel. Yea and beside all this, it is now the third

22 day since these things came to pass. Moreover certain women of 23. our company amazed us, having been early at the tomb; and

when they found not his body, thay came, saying, that they had

24 also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them that were with us went to the tomb, and found it

25 even so as the woman had said: but him they saw not. And he said unto them, O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all

26 that the prophets have spoken! Behoved it not the Christ to

27 suffer these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in

28 all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they were going: and he made as

29 though he would go further. And they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is now far

80 spent. And he went in to abide with them. And it came to pass, when he had sat down with them to meat, he took the bread, and

31 blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes we: 8 opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

82 And they said one to another, Was not our heart burning whliin us, while he spake to us in the way, while he opened to us lie

83 scriptures? And they rose up that very hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered, together, and them that

34 were with them, saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath ap85 peared to Simon. And they rehearsed the things that happened

in the way, and how he was known of them in the breaking of

the bread.

36 And as they spake these things, he himself stood in the midst

37 of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they beheld a spirit.

88 And he said unto them. Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do

39 reasonings arise in your heart? See my hands and my feet, that it is 1 myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh

40 and bones, as ye behold me having. And when he had said Ibis,

41 he shewed them his hands and his feet. And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here

42 anything to eat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish.

43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

44 And he said unto them, These are my words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, how that all' things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and the

45 prophets, and the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their

46 mind, that they might understand the scriptures; and he said unto them, Thus it is written, that the Christ slwuld suffer,-and

47 rise again from the dead the third day; and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all the

48 nations, beginning from Jerusalem. Ye are witnesses of these

49 things. And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high.

50 And he led them out until the)/ were over against Bethany: and 61 he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass,

while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up

52 into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusa

53 Jem with great joy: and were continually in the temple, blessing God.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
S. JOHK

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God.

2 and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with

3 God. All things were made by him; and without him was not

4 anything made that hath been made. In him was life; and the

5 life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness;

6 and the darkness apprehended it not. There came a man, sent

7 from God, whose name was John. The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the light, that all might believe

8 through him. He was not the light, but came that he might bear

9 witness of the light. There was the true light, even the light

10 which lighteth every man, coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and ihe world knew

11 him not. He came unto his own, and they that were his own

12 received him not. But as many as received bim, to them gave he the right to become children of God. even to them that believe

13 on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of

14 the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and

15 truth. John beareth witness of him, and crieth, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that cometh after me is become before

16 me: for he was before me. For of his fulness we all received,

17 and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses; grace and

18 truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him. Who art thou?

20 Aud he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not

21 the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elij ih? And he saith. I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered,

22 No. They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? that we may

23 give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness,

24 Make straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet. 2;- And they had been sent from the Pharisees. And they asked

him, and said unto him, Why then baptizest thou, if thou art

26 not the Christ, neither Elijah, neither the prophet? John

answered them, saying, I baptize with water: in the midst of

27 you standeth one whom ye know not, even he that cometh aftar me, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to unloose.

28 These things were done in Bethany beyond Jordan, where Jonu, was baptizing.

29 On the morrow he seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God, which tnkrth away the sin of the

30 world! This is he of whom I said, .Liter me cometh a mra.

31 which is become before me: for he was before me. And I knev him not; but that he should be made manifest to Israel, for this

32 cause came I baptizing with water. And John bare witness, saying, I have beheld the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven;

33 and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, he said unto me, Upon whomsoever thou shall see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon him, the

34 same is he that baptizeth with the Holy Spirit. And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.

35 Again on the morrow John was standing, and two of his dis

36 ciplcs; and he looked upon Jesus as he walked, and saith, Behold

37 the Lamb of God I And the two disciples heard him speak, and

38 they followed Jesus. And Jesus turned, and beheld them following, aud saith unto them, What seek ye? And they said unto him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Master), where

39 abidest thou? He saith unto them, Come, and ye shall see. They came therefore and saw where he abode; and they abode with

40 him that day: it was ntout the tenth hour. One of the two that heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's

41 brother. He findeth first his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being interpreted,

42 Christ). He brought him unto Jesus. Jesus looked upon him, and said, Thou art Simon the son of John: thou shalt be called Cephas (which is by interpretation, Peter).

43 On the morrow he was minded to go forth into Galilee, and he

44 findeth Philip: and Jesus saith unto him, Follow me. Now Philip

45 was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of

46 Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto

47 him. Come and see. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before Philip called thee, when thou

49 wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered him, CO Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art King of Israel. Jesus

answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee underneath the rig tree, belie vest thou? thou shalt see greater 51 things than these. And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye shall see the heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
