10:20. And many of them said: He hath a devil and is mad. Why hear you him?
10:21. Others said: These are not the words of one that hath a devil.
Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
10:22. And it was the feast of the dedication at Jerusalem: and it was winter.
10:23. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch.
10:24. The Jews therefore came round about him and said to him: How long dost thou hold our souls in suspense? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
10:25. Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of my Father, they give testimony of me.
10:26. But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep.
10:27. My sheep hear my voice. And I know them: and they follow me.
10:28. And I give them life everlasting: and they shall not perish for ever. And no man shall pluck them out of my hand.
10:29. That which my Father hath given me is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my Father.
10:30. I and the Father are one.
I and the Father are one... That is, one divine nature, but two distinct persons.
10:31. The Jews then took up stones to stone him.
10:32. Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father. For which of those works do you stone me?
10:33. The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy: and because that thou being a, man, makest thyself God.
10:34. Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said, you are gods?
10:35. If he called them gods to whom the word of God was spoken; and the scripture cannot be broken:
10:36. Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world: Thou blasphemest; because I said: I am the Son of God?
10:37. If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
10:38. But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me and I in the Father.
10:39. They sought therefore to take him: and he escaped out of their hands.
10:40. And he went again beyond the Jordan, into that place where John was baptizing first. And there he abode.
10:41. And many resorted to him: and they said: John indeed did no sign.
10:42. But all things whatsoever John said of this man were true. And many believed n him.
John Chapter 11
Christ raises Lazarus to life. The rulers resolve to put him to death.
11:1. Now there was a certain man sick, named Lazarus, of Bethania, of the town of Mary and of Martha her sister.
11:2. (And Mary was she that anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair: whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
11:3. His sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
11:4. And Jesus hearing it, said to them: This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God: that the Son of God may be glorified by it.
11:5. Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister Mary and Lazarus.
11:6. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he still remained in the same place two days.
11:7. Then after that, he said to his disciples: Let us go into Judea again.
11:8. The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews but now sought to stone thee. And goest thou thither again?
11:9. Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If a man walk in the day he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world:
11:10. But if he walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in him.
11:11. These things he said; and after that he said to them: Lazarus our friend sleepeth: but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.
11:12. His disciples therefore said: Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
11:13. But Jesus spoke of his death: and they thought that he spoke of the repose of sleep.
11:14. Then therefore Jesus said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead.
11:15. And I am glad, for your sakes; that I was not there, that you may believe. But, let us go to him.
11:16. Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples: Let us also go, that we may die with him.
11:17. Jesus therefore came: and found that he had been four days already in the grave.
11:18. (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.)
11:19. And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
11:20. Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus was come, went to meet him: but Mary sat at home.
11:21. Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
11:22. But now also I know that whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
11:23. Jesus saith to her: Thy brother shall rise again.
