[1, 2] 234234 Matt. ii. 1b.And after that,235235 On the substitution of this general phrase for Matt. ii. 1a, see the remarks of Harris in Fragments, etc., p. 37 ff. the Magi came from the east to Jerusalem, 236236 Matt. ii. 2.and said, Where is the King of the Jews which was born? We have seen his star in the east, and have  come to worship him. 237237 Matt. ii. 3.And Herod the king heard, and he was troubled, and all  Jerusalem with him. 238238 Matt. ii. 4.And he gathered all the chief priests and the scribes of the  people, and asked them in what place239239 This periphrasis for where is very characteristic of this work. the Messiah should be born. 240240 Matt. ii. 5.They said, In Bethlehem of Judæa: thus it is written in the prophet,
Art not contemptible among the kings of Judah:
From thee shall go forth a king,
And he shall be a shepherd to my people Israel.
 242242 Matt. ii. 7.Then Herod called the Magi secretly, and inquired of them the time at which  the star appeared to them. 243243 Matt. ii. 8.And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said unto them, Go and search about the child diligently; and when ye have found him, come and  make known to me, that I also may go and worship him. 244244 Matt. ii. 9.And they, when they [Arabic, p. 11] heard the king, departed; and lo, the star which they had seen in the east went before them, until it came and stood above the place where the child [10, 11] was. 245245 Matt. ii. 10.And when they beheld the star, they rejoiced with very great joy. 246246 Matt. ii. 11.And they entered the house and beheld the child with Mary his mother, and fell down worshipping him, and opened their saddle-bags and offered to him offerings, gold and  myrrh and frankincense. 247247 Matt. ii. 12.And they saw in a dream248248 So in later Arabic and some Arabic versions. According to classical usage the word means sleep. that they should not return to Herod, and they travelled by another way in going to their country.
 249249 Matt. ii. 13.And when they had departed, the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph, and said unto him, Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I speak to thee; for Herod is determined to seek the child  to slay him. 250250 Matt. ii. 14.And Joseph arose and took the child and his mother in the night, and  fled into Egypt, 251251 Matt. ii. 15.and remained in it until the time of the death of Herod: that that might be fulfilled which was said by the Lord in the prophet, which said, From  Egypt did I call my son. 252252 Matt. ii. 16.And Herod then, when he saw that he was mocked of the Magi, was very angry, and sent and killed all the male children which were in Bethlehem and all its borders, from two years old and under, according to the time  which he had inquired from the Magi. 253253 Matt. ii. 17.Then was fulfilled the saying in Jeremiah the prophet, which said,
Weeping and much lamentation;
And not willing to be consoled for their loss.
 256256 Matt. ii. 19.But when Herod the king died, the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to  Joseph in Egypt, 257257 Matt. ii. 20.and said unto him, Rise and take the child and his mother, and [Arabic, p. 12] go into the land of Israel; for they have died who sought the child’s life.  258258 Matt. ii. 21.And Joseph rose and took the child and his mother, and came to the land  of Israel. 259259 Matt. ii. 22.But when he heard that Archelaus had become king over Judæa instead of Herod his father, he feared to go thither; and he saw in a dream that he should 48 go into the land of Galilee, 260260 Matt. ii. 23.and that he should abide in a city called Nazareth: that the saying in the prophet might be fulfilled, that he should be called a Nazarene.
 262262 Luke ii. 41.And his kinsfolk263263 A general word (cf. Syr. versions). used to go every year to Jerusalem at the feast of the passover.  264264 Luke ii. 42.And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to their custom,  to the feast. 265265 Luke ii. 43.And when the days were accomplished, they returned; and the child  Jesus remained in Jerusalem, and Joseph and his mother knew not: 266266 Luke ii. 44.and they supposed that he was with the children of their company. And when they had gone one day’s journey, they sought him beside their people and those who knew them,  and they found him not; 267267 Luke ii. 45.so they returned to Jerusalem and sought him again.  268268 Luke ii. 46.And after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers,  hearing them and asking them questions; 269269 Luke ii. 47.and all who heard him wondered at  his wisdom and his words. 270270 Luke ii. 48.And when they saw him they wondered, and his mother said unto him, My son, why hast thou dealt with us thus? behold, I and thy father  have been seeking for thee with much anxiety. 271271 Luke ii. 49.And he said unto them, Why were  ye seeking me? know272272 Or, knew. ye not that I must be in the house of my Father? 273273 Luke ii. 50.And they  understood not the word which he spake unto them. 274274 Luke ii. 51.And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth; and he was obedient to them: and his mother used to keep all these sayings in her heart.
 276276 Luke iii. 1.And in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Cæsar, when Pontius Pilate was governor in Judæa, and one of the four rulers, Herod, in Galilee; and Philip his brother, one of the four rulers, in Ituræa and in the district of Trachonitis; and  Lysanias, one of the four rulers, in Abilene; 277277 Luke iii. 2.in the chief-priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the command278278 There is a very rare use of this Arabic word in the Hebrew sense of saying. of God went forth to John the son of Zacharias in the  desert. 279279 Luke iii. 3.And he came into all the region which is about Jordan, proclaiming the  baptism of repentance unto280280 So Vat. ms. The Borg. ms. has with. the forgiveness of sins. 281281 Matt. iii. 1b.And he was preaching in the  wilderness of Judæa, and saying, 282282 Matt. iii. 2.Repent ye; the kingdom of heaven is come near.  283283 Matt. iii. 3a.This is he that was spoken of in Isaiah the prophet,
The voice which crieth in the desert,
And make straight in the plain, paths for our God.
And all the mountains and hills shall become low;
And the rough shall become plain, And the difficult place, easy;
 288288 John i. 7.This man came to bear witness, that he might bear witness to the light, that  every man might believe through his mediation. 289289 John i. 8.He was not the light, but that he  might bear witness to the light, 290290 John i. 9.which was the light of truth, that giveth light to  every man coming into the world. 291291 John i. 10.He was in the world, and the world was made  by him, and the world knew  him not. 292292 John i. 11.He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 293293 John i. 12.And those who received him, to them gave he the power294294 Or, authority. that they might  be sons of God,—those which believe in his name: 295295 John i. 13.which were born, not of blood,  nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a man, but of God. 296296 John i. 14.And the Word became flesh, and took up his abode among us; and we saw his glory as the glory  of the only Son from the Father, which is full of grace and equity.297297 In Syr. this word also means truth. 298298 John i. 15.John bare witness [Arabic, p. 14] of him, and cried, and said, This is he that I said cometh after me and  was before me, because he was before me.299299 Or, earlier than I. 300300 John i. 16.And of his fullness received  we all grace for grace. 301301 John i. 17.For the law was given through the mediation of Moses, but truth and grace were302302 i.e., came to be. through Jesus Christ.
