    Section LIV.

    [1] 3783

    3783 Luke xxiv. 36a; John xx. 19.

    And while they talked together,3784

    3784 The Arabic word after together looks as if it might be due to a misreading of the Syriac, but it is probably a usage cited by Dozy, Supplément, etc., i., 247.

    the evening of that day arrived which was the First-day; and the doors were shut where the disciples were, because of the fear of the [2] Jews; 3785

    3785 Luke xxiv. 36c.

    and Jesus came and stood among them, and said unto them, Peace be with you:  I am he; fear not.  3786

    3786 Luke xxiv. 37.

    But they were agitated, and became afraid, and supposed that they [3] saw a spirit.  3787

    3787 Luke xxiv. 38.

    Jesus said unto them, Why are ye agitated? and why do thoughts rise [4] [Arabic, p. 205] in3788

    3788 Lit. on (cf. Pesh.).

    your hearts3789

    3789 Luke xxiv. 39.

    See my hands and my feet, that I am he:  feel me, and know that a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me having that.  [5] 3790

    3790 Luke xxiv. 40.

    And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his feet and his side.3791

    3791 Borg. ms. has sides.

      [6] 3792

    3792 Luke xxiv. 41.

    And they were until this time unbelieving, from their joy and their wonder.  He [7] said unto them, Have ye anything here to eat?  3793

    3793 Luke xxiv. 42.

    And they gave him a portion of broiled fish and of honey.3794

    3794 Borg. ms. omits and of honey.


    3795 Luke xxiv. 43.

    And he took it, and ate before them.

    [8] 3796

    3796 Luke xxiv. 44.

    And he said unto them, These are the sayings which I spake unto you, while I was with you, that3797

    3797 Vat. ms.,for.

    everything must be fulfilled, which is written in the law of [9] Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me.  3798

    3798 Luke xxiv. 45.

    Then opened he their [10] heart, that they might understand the scriptures; and he said unto them, 3799

    3799 Luke xxiv. 46.

    Thus it is written, and thus it is necessary3800

    3800 Borg. ms. omits it is necessary.

    that the Messiah suffer, and rise from among the [11] dead on the third day; 3801

    3801 Luke xxiv. 47.

    and that repentance unto the forgiveness of sins be preached [12] in his name among all the peoples; and the beginning shall be from Jerusalem3802

    3802 Luke xxiv. 48.

    And [13] ye shall be witnesses of that.  And I send unto you the promise of my Father3803

    3803 Luke xxiv. 49a; John xx. 20b.

    And [14] when the disciples heard that, they were glad3804

    3804 John xx. 21.

    And Jesus said unto them again, [15] Peace be with you:  as my Father hath sent me, I also send you.  3805

    3805 John xx. 22.

    And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit:  [16] 3806

    3806 John xx. 23.

    and if ye forgive sins to any man, they shall be forgiven him; and if ye retain them against any man, they shall be retained.

    [17] 3807

    3807 John xx. 24.

    But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Thama, was not there with the disciples [18] when Jesus came.  3808

    3808 John xx. 25.

    The disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen our Lord.  But he said unto them, If I do not see in his hands the places of the nails, and put on them my fingers, and pass my hand over his side, I will not believe.

    [19] 3809

    3809 John xx. 26.

    And after eight days, on the next First-day, the disciples were assembled again within, and Thomas with them.  And Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood [20] [Arabic, p. 206] in the midst, and said unto them, Peace be with you.  3810

    3810 John xx. 27.

    And he said to Thomas, Bring hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and bring hither [21] thy hand, and spread it on my side:  and be not unbelieving, but believing.  3811

    3811 John xx. 28.

    Thomas [22] answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God3812

    3812 John xx. 29.

    Jesus said unto him, Now since thou hast seen me, thou hast believed:  blessed are they that have not seen me, and have believed.

    [23] 3813

    3813 John xx. 30.

    And many other signs did Jesus before his disciples, and they are they which [24] are not written in this book:  3814

    3814 John xx. 31.

    but these that3815

    3815 cf. Peshitta.

    are written also are that ye may believe in Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God; and that when ye have believed, ye may have in his name eternal life.

    [25] 3816

    3816 John xxi. 1.

    And after that, Jesus shewed himself again to his disciples at the sea of Tiberias; [26] and he shewed himself unto them thus.  3817

    3817 John xxi. 2.

    And there were together Simon Cephas, and Thomas which was called Twin,3818

    3818 Apparently the Vat. ms. means to translate the word.  The Borg. ms. retains Tama, as both mss. did in § 37, 61.

    and Nathanael who was of Cana of Galilee, [27] and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of the disciples3819

    3819 John xxi. 3.

    Simon Cephas said unto them, I go to catch fish.  They said unto him, And we also come with thee.  And they went forth, and went up into the boat; and in that night they caught nothing.  [28] 3820

    3820 John xxi. 4.

    And when the morning arrived, Jesus stood on the shore of the sea:  but the disciples [29] knew not that it was Jesus3821

    3821 John xxi. 5.

    And Jesus said unto them, Children, have ye anything [30] to eat?  They said unto him, No.  3822

    3822 John xxi. 6.

    He said unto them, Cast your net from the right side of the boat, and ye shall find.3823

    3823 So Peshitta.  Vat. ms. has a form that might possibly be a corruption of take.

      And they threw, and they were not able [31] to draw the net for the abundance of the fish that were come3824

    3824 Or, were taken.

    into it.  3825

    3825 John xxi. 7.

    And that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Cephas, This is our Lord.  And Simon, when he heard that it was our Lord, took his tunic, and girded it on his waist (for he was [32] naked), and cast himself into the sea to come to Jesus3826

    3826 John xxi. 8.

    But some others of the disciples came in the boat3827

    3827 Vat. ms. adds unto Jesus.

    (and they were not far from the land, but about two [33] [Arabic, p. 207] hundred cubits), and drew that net of fish3828

    3828 John xxi. 9.

    And when they went up on the [34] land, they saw live coals laid, and fish laid thereon, and bread3829

    3829 John xxi. 10.

    And Jesus [35] said unto them, Bring of this fish which ye have now caught.  3830

    3830 John xxi. 11.

    Simon Cephas therefore went up, and dragged the net to the land, full of great fish, a hundred and fifty-three [36] fishes:  and with all this weight that net was not rent.  3831

    3831 John xxi. 12.

    And Jesus said unto them, Come and sit down.  And no man of the disciples dared to ask him who he was, for they knew that it was our Lord.  But he did not appear to them in his own [37, 38] form.  3832

    3832 John xxi. 13.

    And Jesus came, and took bread and fish, and gave unto them.  3833

    3833 John xxi. 14.

    This is the third time that Jesus appeared to his disciples, when he had risen from among the dead.

    [39] 3834

    3834 John xxi. 15.

    And when they had breakfasted, Jesus said to Simon Cephas, Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me more than these?  He said unto him, Yea, my Lord; thou [40] knowest that I love thee.  3835

    3835 John xxi. 16.

    Jesus said unto him, Feed for me my lambs.  He said unto him again a second time, Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me?  He said unto him, Yea, my Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He said unto him, Feed for [41] me my sheep.3836

    3836 Lit. rams.


    3837 John xxi. 17.

    He said unto him again the third time, Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou me?  And it grieved Cephas that he said unto him three times, Lovest thou me?  He said unto him, My Lord, thou knowest everything; thou knowest that I [42] love thee.  3838

    3838 John xxi. 18.

    Jesus said unto him, Feed for me my sheep.3839

    3839 Lit. ewes.  For the three words cf. Peshitta and Sinaitic.

      Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast a child, thou didst gird thy waist for thyself, and go whither [Arabic, p. 208] thou wouldest:  but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch out thy hands, and another shall gird thy waist, and take thee whither thou wouldest not.  [43] 3840

    3840 John xxi. 19.

    He said that to him to explain by what death he was to glorify God.  And when he [44] had said that, he said unto him, Come after me.  3841

    3841 John xxi. 20.

    And Simon Cephas turned, and saw that disciple whom Jesus loved following him; he which at the supper leaned3842

    3842 cf. § 45, 3, note.

    on [45] Jesusbreast, and said, My Lord, who is it that betrayeth thee?  3843

    3843 John xxi. 21.

    When therefore Cephas saw him, he said to Jesus, My Lord, and this man, what shall be in his [46] case?3844

    3844 Lit. of him.


    3845 John xxi. 22.

    Jesus said unto him, If I will that this man remain until I come, what is [47] that to thee? follow thou me.  3846

    3846 John xxi. 23.

    And this word spread among the brethren, that that disciple should not die:  but Jesus said not that he should not die; but, If I will that this man remain until I come, what is that to thee?

    [48] 3847

    3847 John xxi. 24.

    This is the disciple which bare witness of that, and wrote it:  and we know that his witness is true.
