    Section XXXV.

    [1] 2389

    2389 John vii. 37.

    And on the great day, which is the last of the feast, Jesus stood, crying out and [2] saying, If any man is thirsty, let him come unto me, and drink.  2390

    2390 John vii. 38.

    Every one that believeth in me, as the scriptures said, there shall flow from his belly rivers of pure [3] water2391

    2391 John vii. 39.

    He said that referring to the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive:  for the Spirit was not yet granted; and because Jesus had not yet been [4] [Arabic, p. 133] glorified2392

    2392 John vii. 40.

    And many of the multitude that heard his words said, This is [5] in truth the prophet2393

    2393 John vii. 41.

    And others said, This is the Messiah.  But others [6] said, Can it be that the Messiah will come from Galilee2394

    2394 John vii. 42.

    Hath not the scripture said that from the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village of David, the [7] Messiah cometh?  2395

    2395 John vii. 43.

    And there occurred a dissension in the multitude because of him.  [8] 2396

    2396 John vii. 44.

    And some of them were wishing to seize him; but no man laid a hand upon him.

    [9] 2397

    2397 John vii. 45.

    And those officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees:  and the priests said [10] unto them, Why did ye not bring him?  2398

    2398 John vii. 46.

    The officers said, Never spake man thus [11] as speaketh this man.  2399

    2399 John vii. 47.

    The Pharisees said unto them, Perhaps ye also have gone [12, 13] astray2400

    2400 John vii. 48.

    Hath any of the rulers or the Pharisees haply believed in him? 2401

    2401 John vii. 49.

    except [14] this people which knows not the law; they are accursed.  2402

    2402 John vii. 50.

    Nicodemus, one of them, [15] he that had come to Jesus by night, 2403

    2403 John vii. 51.

    said unto them, Doth our law haply condemn [16] a man, except it hear him first and know what he hath done?  2404

    2404 John vii. 52.

    They answered and said unto him, Art thou also haply from Galilee?  Search, and see that a prophet riseth not from Galilee.

    [17, 18] 2405

    2405 Matt. xxii. 41.

    And when the Pharisees assembled, Jesus asked them, and said, 2406

    2406 Matt. xxii. 42.

    What say ye of [19] the Messiah? whose son is he?  They said unto him, The son of David2407

    2407 Matt. xxii. 43.

    He said unto them, And how doth David in the Holy Spirit call him Lord? for he said,

    [20] 2408

    2408 Matt. xxii. 44.

    The Lord said unto my Lord,

    Sit on my right hand,

    That I may put thine enemies under thy feet.

    [21, 22] 2409

    2409 Matt. xxii. 45.

    If then David calleth him Lord, how is he his son?  2410

    2410 Matt. xxii. 46.

    And no one was able to answer him; and no man dared from that day again to ask him of anything.

    [23] 2411

    2411 John viii. 12.

    And Jesus addressed them again, and said, I am the light of the world; and he that [24] followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall find the light of life2412

    2412 John viii. 13.

    The Pharisees [Arabic, p. 134] said unto him, Thou bearest witness to thyself; thy witness is not true.  2413

    2413 John viii. 14.

    Jesus [25] answered and said unto them, If I bear witness to myself, my witness is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye know not whence I came, or [26, 27] whither I go.  2414

    2414 John viii. 15.

    And ye judge after the flesh; and I judge no man.  2415

    2415 John viii. 16.

    And even if I judge, my judgement is true; because I am not alone, but I and my Father which [28, 29] sent me.  2416

    2416 John viii. 17.

    And in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true.  2417

    2417 John viii. 18.

    I am he that beareth witness to myself, and my Father which sent me beareth witness to [30] me.  2418

    2418 John viii. 19.

    They said unto him, Where is thy FatherJesus answered and said unto them, Ye know not me, nor my Father:  for did ye know me, ye would know my [31] Father2419

    2419 John viii. 20.

    He said these sayings in the treasury, where he was teaching in the [32] temple2420

    2420 John viii. 21.

    and no man seized him; because his hour had not yet come.  Jesus said unto them again, I go truly, and ye shall seek me and not find me, and ye shall die [33] in your sins:  and where I go, ye cannot come.  2421

    2421 John viii. 22.

    The Jews said, Will he haply kill [34] himself, that he saith, Where I go, ye cannot come?  2422

    2422 John viii. 23.

    He said unto them, Ye are from below; and I am from above:  ye are of this world; and I am not of this [35] world2423

    2423 John viii. 24.

    I said unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:  if ye believe not that I am [36] he, ye shall die in your sins2424

    2424 John viii. 25.

    The Jews said, And thou, who art thou?  Jesus said [37] unto them, If I should begin to speak unto you, 2425

    2425 John viii. 26.

    I have concerning you many words and judgement:  but he that sent me is true; and I, what I heard from him is what [38, 39] I say in the world2426

    2426 John viii. 27.

    And they knew not that he meant by that the Father2427

    2427 John viii. 28.

    Jesus [Arabic, p. 135] said unto them again, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then ye shall know that I am he:  and I do nothing of myself, but as my Father [40] taught me, so I speak.  2428

    2428 John viii. 29.

    And he that sent me is with me; and my Father hath not [41] left me alone; because I do what is pleasing to him at all times.  2429

    2429 John viii. 30.

    And while he was saying that, many believed in him.

    [42] 2430

    2430 John viii. 31.

    And Jesus said to those Jews that believed in him, If ye abide in my words, truly [43] ye are my disciples; 2431

    2431 John viii. 32.

    and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  [44] 2432

    2432 John viii. 33.

    They said unto him, We are the seed of Abraham, and have never served any man [45] in the way of slavery:  how then sayest thou, Ye shall be free children2433

    2433 John viii. 34.

    Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Every one that doeth a sin is a slave of [46] sin2434

    2434 John viii. 35.

    And the slave doth not remain for ever in the house; but the son remaineth [47, 48] for ever.  2435

    2435 John viii. 37.

    And if the Son set you free, truly ye shall be free children.  I know that ye are the seed of Abraham; but ye seek to slay me, because ye are unable for my [49] word.  2436

    2436 John viii. 38.

    And what I saw with my Father, I say:  and what ye saw with your father, [50] ye do.  2437

    2437 John viii. 39.

    They answered and said unto him, Our father is AbrahamJesus said unto them, If ye were the children of Abraham, ye would do the deeds of Abraham.  [51] 2438

    2438 John viii. 40.

    Now, behold, ye seek to kill me, a man that speak2439

    2439 Lit. speaketh, according to Arabic idiom.

    with you2440

    2440 Borg. ms. omits with you.

    the truth, that I [52] heard from God:  this did Abraham not do.  2441

    2441 John viii. 41.

    And ye do the deeds of your father.  They said unto him, We were not born of fornication;2442

    2442 Borg. ms. has an adulteress, mistaking the less common Arabic word for a clerical error.

    we have one Father, who is [53] God2443

    2443 John viii. 42.

    Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me:  I proceeded and came2444

    2444 Different words are used in the Arabic; so in the Greek, but not in the Peshitta.  Sin. and Cur. are wanting.

    from God; and it was not of my own self that I came,2445

    2445 Different words are used in the Arabic; so in the Greek, but not in the Peshitta.  Sin. and Cur. are wanting.

    but he sent [54] [Arabic, p. 136] me.  2446

    2446 John viii. 43.

    Why then do ye not know my word?  Because ye cannot hear my word.  [55] 2447

    2447 John viii. 44.

    Ye are from the father, the devil,2448

    2448 Lit. backbiter.

    and the lust of your father do ye desire to do, who from the beginning is a slayer of men, and in the truth standeth not, because the truth is not in him.  And when he speaketh untruth, he speaketh from [56] himself:  for he is a liar, and the father of untruth.  2449

    2449 John viii. 45.

    And I who speak the truth, ye [57] believe me not.  2450

    2450 John viii. 46.

    Who of you rebuketh me for a sin?  And if I speak the truth, ye [58] do not believe me.2451

    2451 This is probably simply a clerical error for the ordinary reading, why have ye not believed me?  The Arabic words why and not having the same consonants, one of them was purposely or accidentally omitted by a copyist.


    2452 John viii. 47.

    Whosoever is of God heareth the words of God:  therefore do [59] ye not hear, because ye are not of God2453

    2453 John viii. 48.

    The Jews answered and said unto him, [60] Did we not say well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast demons2454

    2454 John viii. 49.

    Jesus said unto them, As for me, I have not a devil; but my Father do I honour, and ye dishonour [61] me.  2455

    2455 John viii. 50.

    I seek not my glory:  here is one who seeketh and judgeth.
