John 8:1-11

1 As for Jesus, he went to the Mount of Olives.

2 At daybreak Jesus appeared in the temple again. All the people came to him, and he sat down and began to teach them.

3 Then the teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They made her stand in front of everyone.

4 “Master,” they said, “this woman has been caught in the act of adultery.

5 Now the law of Moses orders that such women be stoned to death; but you, what do you say?”

6 They said this to test Jesus, in order to have some charge against him. Jesus bent down and started writing on the ground with his finger.

7 And as they continued to ask him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let anyone among you who has no sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

8 And he bent down, again, writing on the ground.

9 As a result of these words, they went away, one by one, starting with the elders, and Jesus was left alone, with the woman standing before him.

10 Then Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She replied, “No one.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go away and don’t sin again.”

John 11:1-45

1 There was a sick man named Lazarus who was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.

2 This is the same Mary, who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped his feet with her hair. Her brother Lazarus was sick.

3 So the sisters sent this message to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”

4 On hearing this, Jesus said, “This illness will not end in death; rather it is for God’s glory, and the Son of God will be glorified through it.”

5 It is a fact that Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus;

6 yet, after he heard of the illness of Lazarus, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.

7 Only then did he say to his disciples, “Let us go into Judea again.”

8 They replied, “Master, recently the Jews wanted to stone you. Are you going there again?”

9 Jesus said to them, “Are not twelve working hours needed to complete a day? Those who walk in the daytime shall not stumble, for they see the light of this world.

10 But those who walk at night stumble, for there is no light in them.”

11 After that, Jesus said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going to wake him up.”

12 The disciples replied, “Lord, a sick person who sleeps will recover.”

13 But Jesus had referred to Lazarus’ death, while they thought that he had meant the repose of sleep.

14 So Jesus said plainly, “Lazarus is dead;

15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”

16 Then Thomas, called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”

17 When Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had been in the tomb for four days.

18 As Bethany is near Jerusalem, about two miles away,

19 many Jews had come to Martha and Mary, after the death of their brother, to comfort them.

20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him, while Mary remained sitting in the house.

21 Martha said to Jesus, “If you had been here, my brother would not have died.

22 But I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”

23 Jesus said, “Your brother will rise again.”

24 Martha replied, “I know that he will rise in the resurrection, at the last day.”

25 But Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection. Whoever believes in me, though he die, shall live.

26 Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27 Martha then answered, “Yes, Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world.”

28 After that, Martha went and called her sister Mary secretly, saying, “The Master is here and is calling for you.”

29 As soon as Mary heard this, she rose and went to him.

30 Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha had met him.

31 The Jews, who were with Mary in the house consoling her, also came. When they saw her get up and go out, they followed her, thinking that she was going to the tomb to weep.

32 When Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping, who had come with her, he was moved to the depths of his spirit and troubled.

34 Then he asked, “Where have you laid him?” They answered, “Lord, come and see.”

35 Jesus wept.

36 The Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

37 But some of them said, “If he could open the eyes of the blind man, could he not have kept this man from dying?”

38 Jesus, again deeply moved, drew near to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.

39 Jesus said, “Take the stone away.” Martha said to him, “Lord, by now he will smell, for this is the fourth day.”

40 Jesus replied, “Have I not told you that, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

41 So they removed the stone. Jesus raised his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you, for you have heard me.

42 I knew that you hear me always; but my prayer was for the sake of these people, that they may believe that you sent me.”

43 When Jesus had said this, he cried out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”

44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Untie him, and let him go.”

45 Many of the Jews who had come with Mary believed in Jesus when they saw what he did;

John 5:1-16

1 After this, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now, by the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem, there is a pool (called Bethzatha in Hebrew) surrounded by five galleries.

3 In these galleries lay a multitude of sick people: blind, lame and paralyzed.

(4 All were waiting for the water to move, for at times an angel of the Lord would descend into the pool and stir up the water; and the first person to enter the pool, after this movement of the water, would be healed of whatever disease that he had.)

5 There was a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years.

6 Jesus saw him, and because he knew how long this man had been lying there, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?”

7 And the sick man answered, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is disturbed; so while I am still on my way, another steps down before me.”

8 Jesus then said to him, “Stand up, take your mat and walk!”

9 And at once the man was healed, and he took up his mat and walked. Now that day happened to be the Sabbath.

10 So the Jews said to the man who had just been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and the law doesn’t allow you to carry your mat.”

11 He answered them, “The one who healed me said to me, ‘Take up your mat and walk!’”

12 They asked him, “Who is the one who said to you: Take up your mat and walk?”

13 But the sick man had no idea who it was who had cured him, for Jesus had slipped away among the crowd that filled the place.

14 Afterward Jesus met him in the temple court and told him, “Now you are well; don’t sin again, lest something worse happen to you.”

15 And the man went back and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him.

16 So the Jews persecuted Jesus because he performed healings like that on the Sabbath.

John 7:40-53

40 Many who had been listening to these words began to say, “This is the Prophet.”

41 Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some wondered, “Would the Christ come from Galilee?

42 Doesn’t Scripture say that the Christ is a descendant of David and from Bethlehem, the city of David?”

43 The crowd was divided over him.

44 Some wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him.

45 The officers of the temple went back to the chief priests, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him?”

46 The officers answered, “No one ever spoke like this man.”

47 The Pharisees then said, “So you, too, have been led astray!

48 Have any of the rulers or any of the Pharisees believed in him?

49 Only these cursed people, who have no knowledge of the law!”

50 Yet one of them, Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier, spoke out,

51 “Does our law condemn people without first hearing them and knowing the facts?”

52 They replied, “Do you, too, come from Galilee? Look it up and see for yourself that no prophet is to come from Galilee.”

53 And they all went home.

John 7:1-2,10,25-30

 1 After this, Jesus went around Galilee; he would not go about in Judea, because the Jews wanted to kill him.

2 Now the Jewish feast of the Tents was at hand.

10 But after his brothers had gone to the festival, he also went up, not publicly but in secret.

25 Some of the people of Jerusalem said, “Is this not the man they want to kill?

26 And here he is speaking freely, and they don’t say a word to him? Can it be, that the rulers know that this is really the Christ?

27 Yet we know where this man comes from; but when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from.”

28 So Jesus announced in a loud voice in the temple court where he was teaching, “You say that you know me and know where I come from! I have not come of myself; I was sent by the One who is true, and you don’t know him.

29 I know him, for I come from him, and he sent me.”

30 They would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him be cause his time had not yet come.

John 5:31-47

31 If I bore witness to myself, my testimony would be worthless.

32 But Another One is bearing witness to me, and I know that his testimony is true when he bears witness to me.

33 John also bore witness to the truth when you sent messengers to him,

34 but I do not seek such human testimony;I recall this for you, so that you may be saved.

35 John was a burning and shining lamp, and for a while you were willing to enjoy his light.

36 But I have greater evidence than that of John—the works which the Father entrusted to me to carry out. The very works I do bear witness: the Father has sent me.

37 Thus he who bears witness to me is the Father who sent me. You have never heard his voice and have never seen his likeness;

38 therefore, as long as you do not believe his messenger, his word is not in you.

39 You search in the Scriptures, thinking that in them you will find life; yet Scripture bears witness to me.

40 But you refuse to come to me, that you may live.

41 I am not seeking human praise;

42 but I know that the love of God is not within you,

43 for I have come in my Father’s name and you do not accept me. If another comes in his own name, you will accept him.

44 As long as you seek praise from one another, instead of seeking the glory which comes from the only God, how can you believe?

45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father. Moses himself, in whom you placed your hope, accuses you.

46 If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote of me.

47 But if you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?

Luke 1;26-38

26 In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God, to a town of Galilee called Nazareth. He was sent

27 to a virgin, who was betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the family of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

28 The angel came to her and said, “Rejoice, full of grace, the Lord is with you!”

29 Mary was troubled at these words, wondering what this greeting could mean.

30 But the angel said, “Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you.

31 You shall conceive and bear a son; and you shall call him Jesus.

32 He will be great, and shall rightly be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the kingdom of David, his ancestor; he will rule over the people of Jacob forever;

33 and his reign shall have no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?”

35 And the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore, the holy child to be born of you shall be called Son of God.

36 Even your relative, Elizabeth, is expecting a son in her old age, although she was unable to have a child; and she is now in her sixth month.

37 With God nothing is impossible.”

38 Then Mary said, “I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me as you have said.” And the angel left her.
