    And when the [3] devil378

    378 Lit. backbiter, a different word from that used above in § 4, 43, 47.

    had completed all his temptations, he departed from him for a season379

    379 Matt. iv. 11b.

    And behold, the angels drew near and ministered unto him.

    [4, 5] 380

    380 John i. 35.

    And next day John was standing, and two of his disciples; 381

    381 John i. 36.

    and he saw Jesus as [6] he was walking, and said, Behold, the Lamb of God382

    382 John i. 37.

    And his two disciples heard [7] him saying this,383

    383 Or, speaking.

    and they followed Jesus384

    384 John i. 38.

    And Jesus turned and saw them coming after him, and said unto them, What seek ye?  They said unto him, Our master, [8] where art thou staying?  385

    385 John i. 39.

    And he said unto them, Come and see.  And they came and saw his place, and abode with him that day:  and it was about the tenth hour.  [9] 386

    386 John i. 40.

    One of the two which heard from387

    387 cf. Peshitta.

    John, and followed Jesus, was Andrew the [10] brother of Simon388

    388 John i. 41a.

    And he saw first Simon his brother, and said unto him, We have [11] found the Messiah389

    389 John i. 42a.

    And he brought him unto Jesus.  And Jesus looked upon him and said, Thou art Simon, son of Jonah:  thou shalt be called Cephas.390

    390 The Arabic word used throughout this work means Stones.

    [12] 391

    391 John i. 43.

    And on the next day Jesus desired to go forth to Galilee, and he found Philip, [13] [Arabic, p. 19] and said unto him, Follow me.  392

    392 John i. 44.

    Now Philip was of Bethsaida, of the city [14] of Andrew and Simon393

    393 John i. 45.

    And Philip found Nathanael, and said unto him, He of whom Moses did write in the law and in the prophets, we have found that [15] he is Jesus the son of Joseph of Nazareth394

    394 John i. 46.

    Nathanael said unto him, Is it possible that there can be any good thing from NazarethPhilip said unto him, Come and [16] see.  395

    395 John i. 47.

    And Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, This is indeed a396

    396 Lit. the (cf. note to § 1, 40).

    [17] son of Israel in whom is no guile397

    397 John i. 48.

    And Nathanael said unto him, Whence knowest thou me?  Jesus said unto him, Before Philip called thee, while thou wast under the [18] fig tree, I saw thee.  398

    398 John i. 49.

    Nathanael answered and said unto him, My Master, thou art [19] the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel399

    399 John i. 50.

    Jesus said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, hast thou believed? thou shalt see what is [20] greater than this.  400

    400 John i. 51.

    And he said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the heavens opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

    404 Lit. the (cf. note to § 1, 40).

    city of Galilee; and the [23] mother of Jesus was there:  405

    405 John ii. 2.

    and Jesus also and his disciples were invited to the [24] feast406

    406 John ii. 3.

    And they lacked wine:  and his mother said unto Jesus, They have no wine.  [25] 407

    407 John ii. 4.

    And Jesus said unto her, What have I to do with thee, woman? hath not mine [26] hour come?408

    408 The reading of Cur. and Sin. is not known; but cf. Moesinger, p. 53, and Isho’dad quoted in Harris, Fragments, etc., p. 46.


    409 John ii. 5.

    And his mother said unto the servants, What he saith unto you, do.  [27] 410

    410 John ii. 6.

    And there were there six vessels of stone, placed for the Jews’ purification, such as [28] [Arabic, p. 20] would contain two or three jars.  411

    411 John ii. 7.

    And Jesus said unto them, Fill the vessels [29] with water.  And they filled them to the top.  412

    412 John ii. 8.

    He said unto them, Draw [30] out now, and present to the ruler of the feast. And they did so413

    413 John ii. 9.

    And when the ruler of the company tasted that water which had become wine, and knew not whence it was (but the servants knew, because they filled up the water), the ruler of the company called [31] the bridegroom, 414

    414 John ii. 10.

    and said unto him, Every man presenteth first the good wine, and on intoxication he bringeth what is poor; but thou hast kept the good wine until [32] now.  415

    415 John ii. 11.

    And this is the first sign416

    416 Perhaps a comma should be inserted after sign.

    which Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested [33] his glory; and his disciples believed on him.  417

    417 Luke iv. 14b.

    And his fame spread in all the country [34] which was around them.  418

    418 Luke iv. 15.

    And he taught in their synagogues, and was glorified [35] by419

    419 If the text does not contain a misprint the word for by is wanting in both mss.  It should doubtless be restored as in § 7, 3.

    every man.  420

    420 Luke iv. 16.

    And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and entered, according to his custom, into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood [36] up to read.  421

    421 Luke iv. 17.

    And he was given the book of Isaiah the prophet.  And Jesus opened the book and found the place where it was written,

    [37] 422

    422 Luke iv. 18.

    The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

    And for this anointed he me, to preach good tidings to the poor;

    And he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted,

    And to proclaim forgiveness to the evil-doers,423

    423 Evil-doers could easily be an Arabic copyist’s corruption of captives; but the word used here for forgiveness could hardly spring from an Arabic release (in Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, where the thing seems to have happened, a different word is used).  In Syriac, however, they are the same; while the first pair contain the same consonants.

    and sight to the blind,

    And to bring the broken into forgiveness,424

    424 See preceding note.

    [38] 425

    And he began to say unto them, To-day hath this scripture been fulfilled which ye have heard with [41] your ears428

    428 Luke iv. 22a.

    And they all bare him witness, and wondered at the words of grace which were proceeding from his mouth.

    [42] [Arabic, p. 21] 429

    429 Matt. iv. 17a.

    And from that time began Jesus to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom [43] of God, and to say, Repent ye, and believe in the gospel430

    430 Mark i. 15.

    The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of heaven hath come near.

    [44] 431

    431 Matt. iv. 18.

    And while he was walking on the shore of the sea of Galilee, he saw two brethren, Simon who was called Cephas, and Andrew his brother, casting their nets into [45] the sea; for they were fishers.  432

    432 Matt. iv. 19.

    And Jesus said unto them, Follow me, and I will [46] make you fishers of men.  433

    433 Matt. iv. 20.

    And they immediately left their nets there and followed [47] him.  434

    434 Matt. iv. 21.

    And when he went on from thence, he saw other two brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the ship with Zebedee their father, mending [48] their nets; and Jesus called them.  435

    435 Matt. iv. 22.

    And they immediately forsook the ship and their father Zebedee, and followed him.

    he saw two boats standing beside the sea, while438

    438 Or, but.

    the two fishers which were gone out of them were washing their [51] nets.  439

    439 Luke v. 3.

    And one of them belonged to Simon Cephas.  And Jesus went up and sat down in it, and commanded that they should move away a little from the land into [52] the water.  And he sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat440

    440 Luke v. 4.

    And when he had left off his speaking, he said unto Simon, Put out into the deep, and cast your [53] net for a draught441

    441 Luke v. 5.

    And Simon answered and said unto him, My Master, we toiled [54] all night and caught nothing; now442

    442 Borg. ms. has but.  The Arabic expressions are very similar.

    at thy word I will cast the net.  443

    443 Luke v. 6.

    And when they did this, there were enclosed444

    444 Borg. ms. has he did this, he enclosed, on which see § 38, 43, note (end).  Either reading could spring from the other, within the Arabic.

    a great many fishes; and their net was on the [55] point of breaking.  445

    445 Luke v. 7.

    And they beckoned to their comrades that were in the other boat, to come and help them.  And when they came, they filled both boats, so that they were on the point of sinking.
