Christ questioneth and S. John. you, That ye shall die in your sins; for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you; he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things, which I have heard of him.
27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me; the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
30 As he spake these words many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews, which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed:
32 And ye 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, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
answereth the Jews,
35 And the servant abideth not in the house forever; but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father; and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered, and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, 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. 8
The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he; others said, He is like him; but he said, I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened ?
11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
restored to sight:
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.
12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath-day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not; he is of ask age; him; he shall speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews; for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, & the sheep follow him; for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers.
6 This parable spake Jesus unto them; but they understood not what things they were, which he spake unto them.
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily. I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
s All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them.
good shepherd, &c.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh 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 hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him ?
21 Others said, These are not the words of him, that hath a devil; can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
