Section XXXV.

[1] 23892389    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.  23902390    John vii. 38.Every one that believeth in me, as the scriptures said, there shall flow from his belly rivers of pure [3] water.  23912391    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] glorified.  23922392    John vii. 40.And many of the multitude that heard his words said, This is [5] in truth the prophet.  23932393    John vii. 41.And others said, This is the Messiah.  But others [6] said, Can it be that the Messiah will come from Galilee?  23942394    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?  23952395    John vii. 43.And there occurred a dissension in the multitude because of him.  [8] 23962396    John vii. 44.And some of them were wishing to seize him; but no man laid a hand upon him.

[9] 23972397    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?  23982398    John vii. 46.The officers said, Never spake man thus [11] as speaketh this man.  23992399    John vii. 47.The Pharisees said unto them, Perhaps ye also have gone [12, 13] astray?  24002400    John vii. 48.Hath any of the rulers or the Pharisees haply believed in him? 24012401    John vii. 49.except [14] this people which knows not the law; they are accursed.  24022402    John vii. 50.Nicodemus, one of them, [15] he that had come to Jesus by night, 24032403    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?  24042404    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] 24052405    Matt. xxii. 41.And when the Pharisees assembled, Jesus asked them, and said, 24062406    Matt. xxii. 42.What say ye of [19] the Messiah? whose son is he?  They said unto him, The son of David.  24072407    Matt. xxii. 43.He said unto them, And how doth David in the Holy Spirit call him Lord? for he said,

[20] 24082408    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] 24092409    Matt. xxii. 45.If then David calleth him Lord, how is he his son?  24102410    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] 24112411    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 life.  24122412    John viii. 13.The Pharisees [Arabic, p. 134] said unto him, Thou bearest witness to thyself; thy witness is not true.  24132413    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.  24142414    John viii. 15.And ye judge after the flesh; and I judge no man.  24152415    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.  24162416    John viii. 17.And in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true.  24172417    John viii. 18.I am he that beareth witness to myself, and my Father which sent me beareth witness to [30] me.  24182418    John viii. 19.They said unto him, Where is thy Father?  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye know not me, nor my Father:  for did ye know me, ye would know my [31] Father.  24192419    John viii. 20.He said these sayings in the treasury, where he was teaching in the [32] temple:  24202420    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.  24212421    John viii. 22.The Jews said, Will he haply kill [34] himself, that he saith, Where I go, ye cannot come?  24222422    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] world.  24232423    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 sins.  24242424    John viii. 25.The Jews said, And thou, who art thou?  Jesus said 98[37] unto them, If I should begin to speak unto you, 24252425    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 world.  24262426    John viii. 27.And they knew not that he meant by that the Father.  24272427    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.  24282428    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.  24292429    John viii. 30.And while he was saying that, many believed in him.

[42] 24302430    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; 24312431    John viii. 32.and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  [44] 24322432    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 children?  24332433    John viii. 34.Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Every one that doeth a sin is a slave of [46] sin.  24342434    John viii. 35.And the slave doth not remain for ever in the house; but the son remaineth [47, 48] for ever.  24352435    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.  24362436    John viii. 38.And what I saw with my Father, I say:  and what ye saw with your father, [50] ye do.  24372437    John viii. 39.They answered and said unto him, Our father is Abraham.  Jesus said unto them, If ye were the children of Abraham, ye would do the deeds of Abraham.  [51] 24382438    John viii. 40.Now, behold, ye seek to kill me, a man that speak24392439    Lit. speaketh, according to Arabic idiom. with you24402440    Borg. ms. omits with you. the truth, that I [52] heard from God:  this did Abraham not do.  24412441    John viii. 41.And ye do the deeds of your father.  They said unto him, We were not born of fornication;24422442    Borg. ms. has an adulteress, mistaking the less common Arabic word for a clerical error. we have one Father, who is [53] God.  24432443    John viii. 42.Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me:  I proceeded and came24442444    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,24452445    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.  24462446    John viii. 43.Why then do ye not know my word?  Because ye cannot hear my word.  [55] 24472447    John viii. 44.Ye are from the father, the devil,24482448    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.  24492449    John viii. 45.And I who speak the truth, ye [57] believe me not.  24502450    John viii. 46.Who of you rebuketh me for a sin?  And if I speak the truth, ye [58] do not believe me.24512451    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.  24522452    John viii. 47.Whosoever is of God heareth the words of God:  therefore do [59] ye not hear, because ye are not of God.  24532453    John viii. 48.The Jews answered and said unto him, [60] Did we not say well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast demons?  24542454    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.  24552455    John viii. 50.I seek not my glory:  here is one who seeketh and judgeth.
