[1, 2] [Arabic, p. 170] 30863086    John xiii. 23.And one of his disciples was sitting30873087    The Syriac versions have reclining. in his bosom, he whom Jesus loved.  30883088    John xiii. 24.To him Simon Cephas beckoned, that he should ask him who this was, concerning [3] whom he spake.  30893089    John xiii. 25.And that disciple leaned30903090    Lit. fell. on Jesus’ breast, and said unto him, [4] My Lord, who is this?  30913091    John xiii. 26.Jesus answered and said, He to whom I shall dip bread, and give it.  And Jesus dipped bread, and gave to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.  [5] 30923092    John xiii. 27.And after the bread, Satan entered him.  And Jesus said unto him, What thou [6] desirest to do, hasten the doing of it.  30933093    John xiii. 28.And no man of them that sat knew why he [7] said this unto him.  30943094    John xiii. 29.And some of them thought, because Judas had the box, that he was bidding him buy what would be needed for the feast; or, that he might pay [8] something to the poor.  30953095    Matt. xxvi. 25.Judas the betrayer answered and said, Can it be I, my [9] Master?  Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said.  30963096    John xiii. 30.And Judas took the bread straightway, and went forth without:  and it was still night.

[10] 30973097    John xiii. 31.And Jesus said, Now is the Son of man being glorified,30983098    A simple change of diacritical points would give the reading of the Greek and of the Syriac versions. and God is being glorified30993099    A simple change of diacritical points would give the reading of the Greek and of the Syriac versions. [11] in him; 31003100    John xiii. 32.and if God is glorified in him, God also will glorify him in him, and straightway will glorify him.

[12] 31013101    Mark xiv. 22a.And while they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and divided; 31023102    Matt. xxvi. 26b.and he 113[13] gave to his disciples, and said unto them, Take and eat; this is my body.  31033103    Mark xiv. 23a.And he [Arabic, p. 171] took a cup, and gave thanks, and blessed, and gave them, 31043104    Matt. xxvi. 27b.and said, Take [14, 15] and drink of it, all of you.  31053105    Mark xiv. 23b.And they drank of it, all of them.  31063106    Mark xiv. 24a.And he said unto them, 31073107    Matt. xxvi. 28.This is my blood, the new covenant, that is shed for many for the [16] forgiveness of sins.  31083108    Matt. xxvi. 29.I say unto you, I shall not drink henceforth of this, the juice of the vine, until the day in which I drink31093109    Peshitta adds it.  The reading of the Sinaitic is doubtful. with you new wine in the kingdom of [17] God.  31103110    Luke xxii. 19b.And thus do ye in remembrance of me.  31113111    Luke xxii. 31.And Jesus said unto Simon, Simon, [18] behold, Satan asketh that he may sift you like wheat:  31123112    Luke xxii. 32.but I entreat31133113    Past tense in Syriac versions. for thee, that thou lose not thy faith:31143114    We may translate, with the Syriac versions, that thy faith fail not, only if we assign a somewhat Syriac meaning to the verb, and assume either an error in diacritical points (t for y) or an unusual (Syriac) gender for faith.  and do thou, at some time, turn31153115    cf. Syriac versions. and strengthen thy brethren.

[19] 31163116    John xiii. 33.My children, another little while am I with you.  And ye shall seek me:  and as [20] I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; I say unto you now also.  31173117    John xiii. 34.A new commandment I give you, that ye may love one another; and as I have loved [21] you, so shall ye also love one another.  31183118    John xiii. 35.By this shall every man know that ye are [22] my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  31193119    John xiii. 36.Simon Cephas said unto him, Our Lord, whither goest thou?  Jesus answered and said unto him, Whither I go, thou canst not now follow me; but later thou shalt come.

[23] 31203120    Matt. xxvi. 31.Then said Jesus unto them, Ye all shall desert31213121    The Arabic word is not unlike the word for stumble, and Borg. ms. omits me. me this night:31223122    Vat. ms. omits this night.  it is written, I [24] will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered.  31233123    Matt. xxvi. 32.But after my [25] rising, I shall go before you into Galilee.  31243124    Matt. xxvi. 33.Simon Cephas answered and said unto [26] him, My Lord, if every man desert thee, I shall at no time desert thee.  31253125    Luke xxii. 33b.I am with thee ready for imprisonment and for death.  31263126    John xiii. 37b.And my life will I give up for thee.  [27] [Arabic, p. 172] 31273127    John xiii. 38a.Jesus said unto him, Wilt thou give up thy life for me?  31283128    Mark xiv. 30b.Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Thou shalt to-day, during this night, before the cock crow [28] twice, three times deny me, that thou knowest me not.  31293129    Luke xxii. 34b; Mark xiv. 31.But Cephas said the more,31303130    Or, went on saying. Even if it lead to31313131    Lit. end in.  Or, if I come to (the point of). death with thee, I shall not deny thee, my Lord.  And in like manner said all the disciples also.

[29] 31323132    John xiv. 1.Then Jesus said unto them, Let not your hearts be troubled:31333133    The diacritical points in both Vat. (followed by Ciasca) and Borg. mss. appear to demand a rendering inquire for be troubled.  In Ibn-at-Tayyib’s comments (not the text), however (with other points), we have the meaning wail (root nhb).  Every Syriac version uses a different word.  believe in God, [30] and believe in me.  31343134    John xiv. 2.The stations31353135    Or, ranks. in my Father’s house are many, else I should [31] have told31363136    Or, should tell. you.  I31373137    Probably the Arabic represents a Syriac For I. go to prepare for you a place.  31383138    John xiv. 3.And if I go to prepare for you a place, I shall return again, and take you unto me:  and so where I am, there ye [32, 33] shall be also.  31393139    John xiv. 4.And the place that I go ye know,31403140    Different words. and the way ye know.31413141    Different words.  31423142    John xiv. 5.Thomas said unto him, Our Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how is the way for [34] us to the knowledge of that?31433143    cf. Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary (f. 352a) and order of words in Peshitta (not Sin.).  31443144    John xiv. 6.Jesus said unto him, I am the way, and the truth, [35] and the life:  and no man cometh unto my Father, but through me.  31453145    John xiv. 7.And if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father:  and from henceforth ye know31463146    Lit. have known. him, [36] and have seen him.  31473147    John xiv. 8.Philip31483148    Different forms, as in Peshitta. said unto him, Our Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth [37] us.  31493149    John xiv. 9.Jesus said unto him, Have I been all this time with you, and dost thou not know31503150    More exactly, hast thou not come to know. me, Philip?31513151    Different forms, as in Peshitta. whosoever hath seen me hath seen the Father; how then sayest [38] thou, Shew us the Father?  31523152    John xiv. 10.Believest thou not that I am in my Father, and my Father in me? and the saying that I say, I say not of myself:  but my Father who dwelleth in [39] me, he doeth these deeds.  31533153    John xiv. 11.Believe that I am in my Father, and my Father in me:  [40] [Arabic, p. 173] or else believe for the sake of the deeds.  31543154    John xiv. 12.Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever believeth in me, the deeds that I do shall he do also; and [41] more than that shall he do:  I go unto the Father.  31553155    John xiv. 13.And what ye shall ask in my [42] name, I shall do unto you, that the Father may be glorified in his Son.  31563156    John xiv. 14.And if ye [43, 44] ask me31573157    The Borg. ms. has me clearly (cf. Peshitta).  The Vat. ms. is ambiguous. in my name, I will do it31583158    John xiv. 15.If ye love me, keep my commandments.  31593159    John xiv. 16.And I will entreat of my Father, and he will send unto you another Paraclete, that he [45] may be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth:  31603160    John xiv. 17.whom the world cannot receive; for it hath not seen him, nor known him:  but ye know him; for he hath dwelt31613161    Probably a misreading of the Peshitta (not Sin. or Cur.), since the next clause also agrees with it. 114[46] with you, and is in you.  31623162    John xiv. 18.I will not leave you orphans:  I will come unto you.  [47] 31633163    John xiv. 19.Another little while, and the world seeth me not; but ye see me that I live, and ye [48] shall live also.  31643164    John xiv. 20.And in that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
