    Section XXVIII.1932

    1932 On margin of Vat. ms., in another hand:  “This is the beginning of the second part of Diatessaron, which means The Four.”  See p. 467 of Ciasca’s Essay, mentioned above (Introduction, 5).

    [1, 2] [Arabic, p. 107] 1933

    1933 John vii. 2.

    And at that time the feast of tabernacles of the Jews drew near.  1934

    1934 John vii. 3.

    So the brethren of Jesus said unto him, Remove now hence, and go to Judæa, that [3] thy disciples may see the deeds that thou doest.  1935

    1935 John vii. 4.

    For no man doeth a thing secretly [4] and wisheth to be apparent.  1936

    1936 John vii. 5.

    If thou doest this, shew thyself to the world.  For [5] up to this time not even the brethren of Jesus believed on him.  1937

    1937 John vii. 6.

    Jesus said unto them, My time till now has not arrived; but as for you, your time is alway ready.  [6] 1938

    1938 John vii. 7.

    It is not possible for the world to hate you; but me it hateth, for I bear witness [7] against it, that its deeds are evil1939

    1939 John vii. 8.

    As for you, go ye up unto this feast:  but I go [8] not up now to this feast; for my time has not yet been completed.  1940

    1940 John vii. 9.

    He said this, and remained behind in Galilee.

    [9] 1941

    1941 John vii. 10a; Matt. xix. 1b.

    But when his brethren went up unto the feast, he journeyed from Galilee, and [10] came to the borders of Judæa, to the country beyond Jordan; 1942

    1942 Matt. xix. 2.

    and there came after [11] him great multitudes, and he healed them all there.  1943

    1943 John vii. 10b.

    And he went out, and proceeded [12] to the feast, not openly, but as one that conceals himself.  1944

    1944 John vii. 11.

    And the Jews sought him [13] at the feast, and said, In what place is this man?  1945

    1945 John vii. 12.

    And there occurred much murmuring there in the great multitude that came to the feast, on his account.  For [14] some said, He is good:  and others said, Nay, but he leadeth the people astray1946

    1946 John vii. 13.

    But no man spake of him openly for fear of the Jews.

    [15] [Arabic, p. 108] 1947

    1947 John vii. 14.

    But when the days of the feast of tabernacles were half over, Jesus went [16] up to the temple, and taught.  1948

    1948 John vii. 15.

    And the Jews wondered, and said, How doth [17] this man know writing,1949

    1949 Or, the scripture.

    seeing he hath not learned1950

    1950 John vii. 16.

    Jesus answered and said, My doctrine1951

    1951 This word ordinarily means knowledge, but is used in this work in the sense of doctrine.  The commoner form occurs perhaps only in § 50, 2.

    [18] is not mine, but his that sent me.  1952

    1952 John vii. 17.

    Whoever wisheth to do his will understandeth my doctrine,1953

    1953 This word ordinarily means knowledge, but is used in this work in the sense of doctrine.  The commoner form occurs perhaps only in § 50, 2.

    whether it be from God, or whether I speak of mine own accord.  [19] 1954

    1954 John vii. 18.

    Whosoever speaketh of his own accord seeketh praise for himself; but whosoever seeketh praise for him that sent him, he is true, and unrighteousness in his heart [20] there is none.  1955

    1955 John vii. 19.

    Did not Moses give you the law, and no man of you keepeth the [21] law1956

    1956 John vii. 20.

    Why seek ye to kill me?  The multitude answered and said unto him, Thou [22] hast demons:1957

    1957 cf. § 14, 12.

      who seeketh to kill thee?  1958

    1958 John vii. 21.

    Jesus answered and said unto them, I did [23] one deed, and ye all marvel because of this.  1959

    1959 John vii. 22.

    Moses hath given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but it is from the fathers); and ye on the sabbath [24] circumcise a man.  1960

    1960 John vii. 23.

    And if a man is circumcised on the sabbath day, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I healed on the sabbath [25] day the whole man?  1961

    1961 John vii. 24.

    Judge not with hypocrisy, but judge righteous judgement.

    [26] 1962

    1962 John vii. 25.

    And some people from Jerusalem said, Is not this he whom they seek to slay?  [27] 1963

    1963 John vii. 26.

    And lo, he discourseth with them openly, and they say nothing unto him.  Think [28] you that our elders have learned that this is the Messiah indeed?  1964

    1964 John vii. 27.

    But this man is1965

    1965 Or, will be.

    known whence he is; and the Messiah, when he cometh, no man knoweth whence [29] he is.  1966

    1966 John vii. 28.

    So Jesus lifted up his voice as he taught in the temple, and said, Ye both know me, and know whence I am; and of my own accord am I not come, but he [30] [Arabic, p. 109] that sent me is true, he whom ye know not:  1967

    1967 John vii. 29.

    but I know him; for I am [31] from him, and he sent me.  1968

    1968 John vii. 30.

    And they sought to seize him:  and no man [32] laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.  1969

    1969 John vii. 31.

    But many of the multitude believed on him; and they said, The Messiah, when he cometh, can it be that he will do more than these signs that this man doeth?

    [33] 1970

    1970 Luke xii. 13.

    And a man of that multitude said unto our Lord, Teacher, say to my brother [34] that he divide with me the inheritance.  1971

    1971 Luke xii. 14.

    Jesus said unto him, Man, who is it that [35] appointed me over you as a judge and divider?  1972

    1972 Luke xii. 15.

    And he said unto his disciples, Take heed within yourselves of all inordinate desire; for it is not in abundance of [36] possessions that life shall be.  1973

    1973 Luke xii. 16.

    And he gave them this parable:  The ground of a [37] rich man brought forth abundant produce:  1974

    1974 Luke xii. 17.

    and he pondered within himself, and [38] said, What shall I do, since I have no place to store my produce?  1975

    1975 Luke xii. 18.

    And he said, I will do this:  I will pull down the buildings of my barns, and build them, and make [39] them greater; and store there all my wheat and my goods.  1976

    1976 Luke xii. 19.

    And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid by for many years; take thine ease, eat, [40] drink, enjoy thyself.  1977

    1977 Luke xii. 20.

    God said unto him, O thou of little intelligence, this night shall thy soul be taken from thee; and this that thou hast prepared, whose shall it [41] be?  1978

    1978 Luke xii. 21.

    So is he that layeth up treasures for himself, and is not rich in God.

    [42] 1979

    1979 Mark x. 17.

    And while Jesus was going in the way, there came near to him a young man1980

    1980 From Matthew.

    of the rulers,1981

    1981 From Luke.

    and fell on his knees, and asked him, and said, Good Teacher, what is [43] it that I must do that I may have eternal life1982

    1982 Mark x. 18.

    Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou [44] me good, while there is none good but the one, even God?1983

    1983 The scribe who wrote the Vat. ms. wrote first God, the one, and then reversed the order by writing the Coptic letters for B and A over the words.  (See above, Introduction, 5.)


    1984 Mark x. 19a.

    Thou knowest the commandments.1985

    1985 Different words.

      [45] 1986

    1986 Matt. xix. 17b; Matt. xix. 18a.

    If thou wouldest enter into life, keep the commandments.1987

    1987 Different words.

      The young [Arabic, p. 110] man said unto him, Which of the commandments?1988

    1988 The same word as in Mark x. 19a.

      Jesus said unto him, [46] 1989

    1989 Mark x. 19b.

    Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not do injury, Honour thy father [47] and thy mother:  and, Love thy neighbour as thyself.  1990

    1990 Matt. xix. 19b; Matt. xix. 20.

    That young man said unto [48] him, All these have I kept from my youth:  what then is it that I lack?  1991

    1991 Mark x. 21a.

    And Jesus [49] looked intently at him, and loved him, and said unto him, 1992

    1992 Matt. xix. 21b.

    If thou wouldest be perfect, what thou lackest is one thing:1993

    1993 From Mark.

      go away and sell everything that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven:  and take thy [50] cross, and follow me.  1994

    1994 Matt. xix. 22a; Luke xviii. 23b.

    And that young man frowned at this word, and went away [51] feeling sad; for he was very rich.  1995

    1995 Luke xviii. 24a; Mark x. 23.

    And when Jesus saw his sadness, he looked towards his disciples, and said unto them, How hard it is for them that have possessions to enter the kingdom of God!
