A Prayer
of Jesus
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and
 understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

From FNT footnotes: 

ZOE "ZOH-ay" (ζωη)—Life 'collectively', interdependent, interconnected. Although it means 'life' in the conventional sense (for example: Matt.9:18, Matt.27:63, Luke.2:36),

Jesus uses ZOE exclusively of 'life eternal' (with the possible exceptions of Luke.15:13, Luke.16:25). 

The other N.T. writers use ZOE in both senses—temporal and eternal, generally clear from the context. The Father is the 'zoe-living God' (see Matt.16:16). The Septuagint (LXX) in Gen.2:7 has "...[God] breathed into his nostrils the breath of zoe-life, and the man became a zoe-living psyche-life" 

Contrast PSYCHE (ψυχη): an individual manifestation of life/consciousness.

On Zoe Life
From the Synoptic Gospels
The Temptation of Jesus
Matthew 4 Luke 4
[1] Then Jesus was led into the wilderness by the spirit to be tested by the devil.
[2] And having fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterwards hungry.
[3] And the [one] testing him having come, he said to him: If you are [the] son of God, speak in order that these stones become bread.
[4] But answering he said: It is written:
Not on bread alone does man zoe-live, but [also] on every word proceeding out of the mouth of God.

[5] Then the devil takes him to the holy city, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple. 

[6] And he says to him: If you are [the] son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written that:

He will command his angels concerning you
And in their hands they will carry you
Lest you dash your foot against [a] stone.

[7] Jesus said to him: Again it is written:

You will not test [the] Lord your God.

[8] Again the devil takes him to [a] very high mountain, and shows to him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, 

[9] and says to him: All these I will give to you if, having fallen [down], you will worship me. 

[10] Then Jesus says to him: Be departing, Satan, for it is written:

You will worship [the] Lord your God and to him only will you serve.

[11] Then the devil left him, and behold angels came and served him.

[1] Now Jesus full of [the] Holy Spirit returned from the Jordan, and was led in the spirit in the wilderness,
[2] being tested forty days by the devil. And he ate nothing in those days, and upon completing them he was hungry.
[3] Now the devil says to him: If you are [the] son of God, tell this stone to become bread.
[4] And Jesus answered him: It is written that:
Not upon bread alone will man zoe-live
But upon every word of God.

[5] And bringing him up he showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited-world in [an] instant of time. 

[6] And the devil said to him: To you will I give all this authority and their glory, because to me have they been given over and to whom I wish to give it. 

[7] You therefore, if you worship before me, all will be yours. 

[8] And Jesus answering said to him: It is written:

You will worship [the] Lord your God
And him only will you serve.

[9] But he brought him to Jerusalem and stood him upon the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him: If you are [the] son of God, throw yourself down from there, 

[10] For it is written that:

He has commanded his angels to protect you.

[11] And that:

Upon [their] hands they will bear you
Lest you dash your foot upon [a] stone.

[12] And Jesus answering said to him that: It is said:

You will not test [the] Lord your God.

[13] And having completed every test the devil withdrew from him until [an] opportune-time.

The Narrow Gate

Matthew 7
[13] Enter in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the road leading to destruction, and many are those entering through it.
[14] And confined is the way leading to zoe-life, and few are those finding it.

Better to Enter into Zoe-Life

Matthew 18 Mark 9
[1] In that hour the disciples came to Jesus saying: Who then is greater in the kingdom of the heavens?
[2] And when he called [a] child he stood him in their midst
[3] and said: Truly I say to you, unless you turn and become as the child, you will not enter into the kingdom of the heavens.
[4] Whoever therefore humbles himself as this child, this is the greater in the kingdom of the heavens.
[5] And whoever receives [one] such child in my name receives me.

[6] but whoever causes one of these little [ones] believing in me to stumble, it is better for him that [a] millstone be hung around his neck and he be sunk in the depths of the sea. 
[7] Woe to the world because of those causing stumbling. It is necessary for stumbling to come, nevertheless woe to the man through whom comes the stumbling. 
[8] But if your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw [it] from you. It is better for you to enter into zoe-life crippled or deformed than having two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 
[9] And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out and throw [it] from you. It is better for you to enter into zoe-life one-eyed than having two eyes to be thrown into the Gehenna of fire.

[38] John said to him: Teacher, we saw someone in your name casting out demons, who follows us not, and we forbid him, for he did not follow us.
[39] But Jesus said: Be not forbidding him, for there is no one who does [a] power in my name and is able at once to speak evil of me;
[40] For whoever is not against us is for us.
[41] For whoever give you [a] cup of water in [my] name, because you are of Christ, truly I say to you that he will not lose his reward.

[42] And whoever should stumble one of these little [ones]believing, it is good to him rather to wear [a] donkey's millstone around his neck and be cast into the sea. 
[43] And if your hand stumble you, cut it off; It is good [that] deformed you enter into zoe-life than having your two hands depart into Gehenna, into the inextinguishable fire, 
[44] where their worm does not die and the fire does not extinguish. 
[45] And if your foot stumble you, cut it off, It is good [that] you enter into zoe-life crippled than having your two feet be thrown into Gehenna into the inextinguishable fire, 
[46] where their worms not die and the fire does not extinguish. 
[47] And if your eye stumble you, cast it out, for it is good [that] one-eyed you enter into the kingdom of God than having two eyes be thrown into Gehenna, 
[48] where their worm does not die and the fire does not extinguish. 
[49] For all will be salted in fire. 
[50] The salt is good. But if the salt become saltless, with what will you season it? Be having in yourselves salt and be having peace with one another.

The Rich Man

Matthew 19 Mark 10 Luke 18
[16] And behold [one] having come to him said: Good teacher, What good [thing] should I do in order that I have eternal zoe-life?
[17] So he said to him: Why do you ask me concerning the good? [Only] one is good. But if you wish to enter into zoe-life, be keeping the commandments.
[18] He says to him: Which? So Jesus said: Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness,
[19] Honor father and mother, and agape-love your neighbor as yourself.
[20] The young man says to him: All these have I kept. What do I yet lack?
[21] Jesus said to him: If you wish to be complete, be going, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and Come! Be following me.
[22] But when the young man heard this statement he went away troubled, for he was having many possessions.

[23] But Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you that the rich hardly enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 
[24] But again I say to you it is easier for [a] camel to go through the eye of [a] needle than for [the] rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[25] When the disciples heard [this] they were exceedingly amazed saying: Who then is able to be saved? 
[26] But looking at [them] Jesus said to them: With man this is impossible, but with God everything is possible. 
[27] Then Peter answering said to him: Behold we have forsaken all and have followed you, what then will be to us? 
[28] And Jesus said to him: Truly I say to you that you the [ones] following me, in the renewal, when the son of man sits on the throne of his glory, you yourselves shall also sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 
[29] And everyone who forsakes houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or land because of my name, will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal zoe-life. 
[30] But many [who are] first will be last and last first.

[17] And when he went out into the road, [one] having run up and having knelt before him asked him, Good teacher, what should I do in order that I may inherit eternal zoe-life ?
[18] But Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? No one [is] good except one—God.
[19] You know the commandments: Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.
[20] But he said to him: Teacher, these [things] have I observed from childhood.
[21] But Jesus having fixed his gaze on him agape-loved him and said to him: One [thing] you lack. Be going, whatever you have sell and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and Come! Be following me.
[22] But having been appalled upon this word, he departed being deeply pained, for he was having many possessions.

[23] And having looked [about], Jesus says to his disciples: How difficultly will those having possessions enter into the kingdom of God. 
[24] But his disciples were being amazed at his words. But Jesus again answering says to them: Children, How difficult it is for those trusting upon possessions to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[25] It is easier for [a] camel to go through the eye of the needle than for the rich to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[26] But they were being exceedingly amazed saying among themselves: And who is able to be saved? 
[27] Having fixed his gaze on them Jesus says: With man [it is] impossible, but not with God, for everything is possible with God. 
[28] Peter began to be saying to him: Behold we have left everything and have followed you. 
[29 Jesus said: Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left houses or brothers or sisters or mothers or fathers or wives or children or fields because of me and because of the good-news, 
[30] who does not receive hundredfold now in this time houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields with persecutions, and in the coming age eternal zoe-life. 
[31] But many first will be last, and the last first.

[18] And one of the rulers asked him saying: Good teacher, what having done will I inherit eternal zoe-life?
[19] But Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? No one is good except one—God.
[20] You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not falsely witness, be honoring your father and mother
[21]But he said, All these [things] I have kept since youth.
[22] But Jesus answering said to him: Yet one [thing] you lack. Sell all as much as you have and distribute [it] to the poor, and you will have treasure in the heavens, and Come! Be following me.
[23] But when he heard these [things] he was become deeply pained, for he was greatly rich.
[24] But seeing him Jesus said: How difficultly those having possessions enter into the kingdom of God.
[25] For it is easier for [a] camel to enter through [a] needle hole than [for] the rich to enter into the kingdom of God.
[26] But those who heard said: And who is able to be delivered?
[27] But he said: the [things] impossible with men are possible with God.
[28] But Peter said: Behold having left our own [things] we have followed you.
[29] So he said to them: Truly I say to you that there is no one who left houses or wives or brothers or parents or children because of the kingdom of God
[30] who would not receive much more in this opportune-time and in the eternity in the coming eternal zoe-life.

Marriage and the Resurrection

Matthew 22 Mark 12 Luke 20
[23] In that day the Sadducees came to him, who say [there] is no resurrection, and they questioned him
[24] saying: Teacher, Moses said: If anyone die not having children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed to his brother.
[25] Now there were beside him seven brothers. And the first who married came to his end, and not having seed left his wife to his brother.
[26] Likewise also the second and the third until the seventh.
[27] Last of all the wife died.
[28] In the resurrection therefore whose of the seven is the wife? For all had her.
[29] But answering Jesus said to them: You are misled, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.
[30] For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage,
[31 but are as the angels in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven't you read the [thing] spoken to you from God saying:
[32] I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob? He is not God of the dead but of the zoe-living.
[33] And hearing this the crowds were astounded at his teaching.
[18] And Saducees come to him, who say there is no resurrection, and asked him saying:
[19] Teacher, Moses wrote to us that:
If any brother die, and leave behind [a] wife and not leave children, that his brother should take the wife and raise up seed to his brother.

[20] There were seven brothers. And the first took [a] wife, and when he died he did not leave seed. 
[21] And the second took her and died not having left seed; and the third likewise. 
[22] And the seven did not leave seed. Last of all the wife also died. 
[23] In the resurrection, whose will the wife be? For the seven had her [as] wife.
[24] Jesus said to them: Not because of this are you deceived, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God? 
[25] For when they are resurrected from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as angels in the heavens. 
[26] Now concerning the dead that they arise, have you not read in the scroll of Moses at the bush how the Lord spoke to him saying:

I am the God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob?

[27] He is not God of the dead but of the zoe-living. You are greatly deceived.

[27] Now some of the Saducees having come, who oppose [that there] is [a] resurrection, asked him
[28] saying: Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If any brother die having [a] wife, and this [man] be childless, that his brother take the woman and raise up seed to his brother.
[29] Now there were seven brothers, and the first taking [a] wife died childless.
[30] And the second,
[31] and the third took her, but likewise even the seven did not leave [a] child and they died.
[32] And finally the woman died.
[33] Therefore in the resurrection, of which of them will the woman become wife? For the seven had her wife.

[34] And Jesus said to them: The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, 
[35] but those considered worthy to attain that age and the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. 
[36] For neither are they still able to die, for they are like angels, and they are sons of God being sons of the resurrection, 
[37] because the dead are raised, and Moses revealed [it] at the bush, as he says:

The Lord, the God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob;
[38] But he is not God of the dead, but of the zoe-living, for all live in him.
[39] So some of the scribes answering him said: Teacher, you spoke well.
[40] For no longer daring, no one questioned him.

The Judgment

Matthew 25
[31] But when the son of man comes in his glory and all his angels with him, then will he sit on the throne of his glory.
[32] And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
[33] And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on his left.
[34] Then the king will say to those on his right: Come you blessed of my father, Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
[35] For I hungered and you gave me to eat, I thirsted and you gave me to drink, I was [a] stranger and you gathered me,
[36] naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, in prison and you came to me.
[37]Then the just will answer him saying: Lord, when did we see you hungry and we fed you, or thirsty and we gave you to drink?
[38] And when did we see you [a] stranger and we gathered you, or naked and we fed you?
[39] And when did we see you sick or in prison and we came to you?
[40] And answering the king will say to them: Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you did [it] to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.

[41] And then will he say to those on his left: Be departing from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 
[42] For I hungered and you did not give me to eat, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink,
[43] I was [a] stranger and you did not gather me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not look after me.
[44] Then they also answered saying: Lord, when did we see you hungering or thirsting or [a] stranger or naked or sick or in prison and we did not serve you? 
[45] Then he will answer them saying: Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, neither did you do it to me.
[46] And these will go into eternal punishment, but the just into eternal zoe-life.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Luke 10
[25] And behold [a] certain lawyer stood up testing him saying: Having done what will I inherit eternal zoe-life?
[26] But he said to him: What is written in the law? How do you read [it]?
[27] So answering he said: You will agape-love the Lord your God in your whole heart and in your whole psyche-life and in your whole strength and in your whole mind, and your neighbor as yourself.
[28] So he said to him: You have answered correctly. Do this and you will zoe-live.
[29] But he wishing to justify himself said to Jesus: And who is my neighbor?

[30] Replying Jesus said: A certain man came down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, who stripped him and having laid blows they departed leaving him half dead. 
[31] Now by chance [a] certain priest came down in that road, and seeing him passed by on the opposite side. 
[32] And likewise also [a] Levite having come by the place and seeing him passed by on the other side. 
[33] Now [a] certain Samaritan journeying came by him and seeing [him] had compassion, 
[34] and having come to him bound his wounds, pouring upon [them] olive oil and wine, and having put him on his own beast brought him to [an] inn and cared for him. 
[35] And upon the morrow having taken out two denarii he gave [them] to the inn keeper and said: Care for him, and whatever you spend in addition I when I return will repay you. 
[36] Who of these three seems to you to have become neighbor of the [one] having fallen among the thieves? 
[37] So he said: The [one] having done mercy to him. Jesus said to him: Be going and you be doing likewise.

The Parable of the Rich Landowner

Luke 12
[13] But one out of the crowd said to him: Teacher, tell my brother to divide with me the inheritance.
[14] But he said to him: Man, who appointed me judge or divider over you?
[15] But he said to him: Be watching and be guarding from all greed, for not in the abundance of anything is your zoe-life, beyond what is sufficient for it.
[16] So he spoke to them [a] parable saying: [a] certain rich man's life yielded well.
[17] And he was reasoning in himself saying: What will I do, for I do not have anywhere I may gather my fruit?
[18] And he said: This will I do: I will tear down the storehouse and will build [a] greater, and I will gather there all my grain and all my good [things],
[19] and I will say in my psyche-life: Psyche-Life, you have many good [things] laid up to many years. Be resting, be eating, be drinking, be being glad.
[20] But God said to him: Fool, this night your psyche-life is demanded back from you. But what you have gathered, for whom will they be?
[21] Thus is the [one] gathering for himself and not being rich to God.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

Luke 15
[11] But I say to you, a certain man was having two sons.
[12] And the younger of them said to the father: Father, give to me the portion of the wealth falling to me. So he divided to them the living.
[13] And after not many days having gathered everything the younger son journeyed to [a] far country, and there he squandered his wealth zoe-living loosely.
[14] So when he spent all [a] severe famine came to pass against that country, and he began to be in need.
[15] And having gone he joined to one of the citizens of that country and he sent him into his fields to be grazing the pigs.
[16] And he was desiring to fill his belly with pods that the pigs were eating, and no one was giving [anything] to him.
[17] But coming to himself he said: How many servants of my father have abundance of bread, but I am perishing here in [a] famine.
[18] Having arisen I will go to my father and will say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
[19] no longer am I worthy to be called your son, make me as one [of your] hired-hands.
[20] And having arisen he came to his own father. But while he was being distant afar his father saw him and had compassion, and having run fell upon his neck and kissed him.
[21] But the son said to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
[22] But the father said to his slaves: Swiftly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and give [a] ring for his hand and sandals for his feet,
[23] and be bringing the fatted calf, kill [it], and having eaten let us make merry.
[24] For this my son was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found. And he began to be making merry.

[25] Now his elder son was in the field, and as he came he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dance, 
[26] and calling upon one of the servants he inquired what this might be. 
[27] But he said to him that his brother has arrived, and your father killed the fatted calf, for he had received him back sound. 
[28] But he was enraged and did not want to enter. So his father having come out called upon him. 
[29] But answering he said to the father: Behold so many years I am slaving to you and never transgressed your commandment, and for me you have never given [a] goat that I may make merry with my friends. 
[30] But when this your son who consumed your living with prostitutes came, you killed for him the fatted calf. 
[31] But he said to him: Child, you are always with me, and all mine is yours. 
[32] But it was necessary to make merry and rejoice, for this your brother was dead and has returned to zoe-life, and was lost and is found.

The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luke 16
[19] But a certain man was rich, and he had put on purple garments and fine linen enjoying himself each day splendidly.
[20] But a certain poor [man] by name Lazarus had been cast to his gate being covered with ulcerous sores.
[21] And he was lusting to be filled from that falling from the table of the rich [one]; but even the dogs coming were licking his ulcerous sores.

[22] Now it came to pass the poor [man] died and was gathered by the angels to Abraham's lap; but the rich [man] also died and was buried. 
[23] And in Hades lifting up his eyes, being in torment, he sees Abraham from afar and Lazarus in his lap, 
[24] and having called out he said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus in order that he dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I suffer torment in this flame
[25] But Abraham said: Child, remember that you received your good [things] in your zoe-life, and likewise Lazarus the evil. But now he is encouraged, and you suffer torment. 
[26] And in all those [things] between you [people] and us [a] great chasm is fixed, so that those wishing to go down from here to you be not able, nor from there to us may not cross over. 
[27] But he said: I ask you therefore, Father, in order that you may sent him to my fathers house, 
[28] for I have five brothers, that he may warn them, that they also not come to this place of torment. 
[29] But Abraham says: They have Moses and the prophets, let him hear from them. 
[30] But he said: No, father Abraham, but if someone proceed from [the] dead to them: they would repent. 
[31] But he said to them: If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded if someone rise from the dead.

The Coming of the Son of Man

Luke 17

[22] But he said to his disciples: The days will come when you will lust to see one of the days of the son of man and you will not see.
[23] And they will say to you: Behold [he is] there, behold here. Do not go out nor pursue.
[24] For just as the lightning when it flashes shines from that under heaven to that under heaven, thus will the son of man in his day.
[25] But first it is necessary he suffer and be rejected by this generation.
[26] And just as it came to pass in the days of Noah, thus will it be in the days of the son of man.
[27] They were eating, were drinking, were marrying, were being given in marriage, until which day Noah entered the ark, and the cataclysm came and all perished.
[28] Likewise just as it came to pass in the days of Lot. They were eating, were drinking, were buying, were selling, were planting, were building;
[29] but in the day Lot departed from Sodom, fire and brimstone rained from heaven and all perished.
[30] According to such [things] will it be in the day the son of man is revealed.
[31] In that day, whoever will be on the roof and his property in the house, let him not come down to take it. And the [one] in the field likewise let him not return to the [things] behind.
[32] Remember Lot's wife.
[33] But whoever seeks to save his psyche-life will lose it, and whoever loses [it] will make it zoe-alive .
[34] I say to you, in this night two will be in one bed—the one will be received, the other will be left.
[35] There will be two grinding together—the one will be received, the other will be left.
[36]  [There will be] two in [the] field—one will be received, and the other left
[37] And answering they say to him: Where Lord? But he said to them: Where the body [is], there also will the vultures be gathered.

From the Fourth Gospel

Conversation with Nicodemus

John 3
[1] Now there was [a] man out of the Pharisees, [the] name to him [was] Nicodemos, [a] ruler of the Jews.
[2] This [one] came to him in [the] night and said to him: Rabbi, we know that you have come [a] teacher from God, for no one is able to be doing these signs that you are doing unless God be with him.
[3] Jesus answered and said to him: Truly truly I say to you, if someone not be begotten from above, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.
[4] Nicodemus says to him: How is [a] man able to be begotten being old? Is he able to enter into his mother's belly [a] second time and be begotten?
[5] Jesus answered: Truly truly I say to you, if someone not be begotten out of water and spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.
[6] That which is begotten out of the flesh is flesh, and that which is begotten out of the spirit is spirit.
[7] You should not marvel that I said to you, You must [all] be begotten from above.
[8] The wind blows where it wants, and you do not know whence it is coming and where it is going, in this manner is everyone who has been begotten out of the spirit.

[9] Nicodemos answered and said to him: How are these [things] able to come to pass? 
[10] Jesus answered and said to him: You are the teacher of Israel and you do not know these [things]? 
[11] Truly truly I say to you that what we have known we speak and what we have seen we testify, and our testimony you [all] do not receive. 
[12] If I told the earthly to you [all], and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell the heavenly to you? 
[13] And no one has gone up into heaven except the one having come down out of heaven, the son of man. 
[14] And just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, in this manner it is necessary for the son of man to be lifted up, 
[15] so that everyone believing in him may be having eternal zoe-life.
[16] For God thus agape-loved the world: so that he gave his uniquely-begotten son, so that everyone believing in him not perish but be having eternal zoe-life. 
[17] For God did not send his son into the world that he judge the world, but that the world be saved through him. 
[18] The [one] believing in him is not judged, the [one] not believing [in him] has already been judged, because he has not believed in the name of the uniquely-begotten son of God. 
[19] And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men agape-loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked
[20] For everyone doing worthlessness hates the light and does not come to the light, that his works not be rebuked
[21] But the [one] doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works be revealed that they have been wrought by God.

Further Testimony About Jesus by John the Baptist

John 3
[22] After these [things] Jesus and his disciples came into the Judean land and he remained with them and was baptizing.
[23] Now John was also baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there, and they were coming and were being baptized.
[24] For John had not yet been thrown into prison.

[25] Now [a] controversy arose out of the disciples of John with [the] Jews concerning purification. 
[26] And they came to John and said to him: Rabbi, [He] who was with you on the other side of the Jordan, to whom you have begotten witness, Behold this [one] baptizes and all come to him.
[27] John answered and said: [a] man is able to be receiving nothing unless it have been given to him out of heaven. 
[28] You yourselves bear me witness that I said: I am not the Christ, but that I have been sent before that [one]. 
[29] The [one] having the bride is the bridegroom. But the friend of the bridegroom, the [one] who has stood and has heard him, rejoices with joy because of the sound of the bridegroom. So my joy has been fulfilled. 
[30] He must be increasing, but I must be diminishing.
[31] The [one] coming from above is over all; the [one] being from the earth is out of the earth and speaks out of the earth. The [one] being from heaven is over all. 
[32] What he has seen and heard, of this he testifies, and no one receives his testimony. 
[33] The [one] having received his testimony has set his seal [to this], that God is true. 
[34] For [the one] whom God sent speaks the words of God, for he does not give the spirit by measure. 
[35] The father agape-loves the son, and has given everything into his hand. 
[36] The [one] believing in the son has eternal zoe-life, but the [one] disobeying the son will not see zoe-life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

Conversation With a Samaritan Woman

John 4
[4] Now it was necessary for him to be going through Samaria.
[5] So he comes into [a] city of Samaria, that is being called Suchar, near the piece of land that Jacob gave to Joseph his son.
[6] Now the well of Jacob was there. So Jesus having become weary from the journey was sitting by the well. It was [about] [the] sixth [hour].
[7] [A] woman from Samaria comes to draw water. Jesus says to her: Give me [some] to drink.
[8] For his disciples had departed into the city, that they buy food.
[9] So the Samaritan woman says to him: How do you being [a] Jew ask to drink from me who is [a] Samaritan woman? (For the Jews do not have dealings with the Samaritans.)

[10] Jesus answered and said to her: If you had known the gift of God and who is the [one] saying to you: Give me [some] to drink, you would have asked him and he would have given to you zoe-living water. 
[11] She says to him: Lord, you have no bucket and the well is deep; whence then do you get the zoe-living water? 
[12] Are you greater than our father Jacob who gave the well to us and he himself drank from it and his sons and his animals? 
[13] Jesus answered and said to her: Everyone drinking from this water will thirst again, 
[14] but whoever drinks from the water that I will give to him, he will not thirst for eternity, but the water that I will give to him will become in him [a] well of water springing-up to eternal zoe-life
[15] The woman says to him: Lord, give me this water, that I not be thirsting nor be coming here to be drawing [water]. 
[16] He says to her: Be going, call your husband and come here. 
[17] The woman answered and said: I do not have [a] husband. Jesus says to her: You said well: I do not have [a] husband. 
[18] For you have had five husbands, and whom you now have is not your husband. This truly you have said.
[19] The woman says to him: Lord, I perceive that you are [a] prophet. 
[20] Our fathers worshipped in these mountains, and you [people] say that in Jerusalem is the place where [one] must be worshipping. 
[21] Jesus says to her: Be believing me, lady, that [an] hour comes when neither in these mountains nor in Jerusalem will you [people] worship the father. 
[22] You [people] worship what you do not know, we worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews. 
[23] But an hour comes and now is when the true worshippers will worship the father in spirit and truth, for indeed the father seeks such [to be] his worshipping [ones]. 
[24] God is spirit, and [his] worshipping [ones] must be worshipping in spirit and truth. 
[25] The woman says to him: We know that [a] Messiah is coming, the [one] being called. When that [one] comes, he will declare to us everything. 
[26] Jesus says to her: I am [he], the [one] speaking to you.

Workers for the Harvest

John 4
[31] In the meanwhile the disciples were asking him saying: Rabbi, eat.
[32] But he said to them: I have bread to eat that you do not know.
[33] So the disciples were saying to one another: Did [someone] bring to him [something] to eat?
[34] Jesus says to them: My food is that I do the will of the [one] having sent me and accomplish his work.
[35] Are you not saying that there is yet four months and [then] the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and behold the fields that they are white already for [the] harvest.
[36] Already the [one] harvesting receives wages and gathers fruit for eternal zoe-life, so that the [one] sowing and the [one] harvesting together rejoice.
[37] For in this the word is true that one is the [one] sowing and another [is] the [one] harvesting.
[38] I sent you to be harvesting what you have not labored [for]; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.

Healing the Royal Official's Son

John 4
[46] So he came again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water [into] wine. And there was [a] certain king's officer whose son was sick in Capernaum.
[47] This [one] having heard that Jesus is come out of Judea to Galilee, departed to him and asked that he come down and heal his son, for he was [about] to be dying.
[48] So Jesus said to him: If you do not see [a] sign and [a] wonder, you [people] would not believe!
[49] The king's officer says to him: Lord, come down before my son dies.
[50] Jesus says to him: Be going, your son zoe-lives. The man believed the word that Jesus said to him, and he was going.

[51] Now already when he was going his slaves met him saying that his child zoe-lives. 
[52] So he inquired of them the hour in which he was better; so they said to him that: Yesterday [the] seventh hour the fever left him. 
[53] So the father knew that it [was] the hour in which Jesus said to him: Your son zoe-lives, and he believed [in] him and his whole house. 
[54] This second sign Jesus again did coming out of Judea to Galilee.

Responding to Jewish Leaders

John 5
[16] And because of this the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he did these [things] on the Sabbath.
[17] But he answered them: My father works until now and I [also] work;
[18] So because of this the Jews were seeking [even] more to kill [him], for he not only loosed the Sabbath, but he also was saying God [is his] own father, making himself equal to God
[19] So Jesus was answering and was saying to them: Truly truly I say to you, the son is not able to be doing anything from himself, except what he may see the father doing. For what that [one] may do, these [things] the son also likewise does.
[20] For the father philia-loves the son and reveals everything to him which he does, and greater works than these he reveals to him, that you marvel.
[21] For as the father raises the dead and makes-zoe-alive, likewise also the son makes zoe-alive whom he wishes.
[22] For the father judges no one, buthe has given all judgment to the son,
[23] that all honor the son just as they may honor the father. The [one] not honoring the son does not honor the father who sent him.
[24] Truly truly I say to you that the [one] hearing my word and believing the [one] having sent me has eternal zoe-life, and does not come into judgment, but is moved out of death into zoe-life.
[25] Truly truly I say to you that [the] hour comes and now is when the dead will hear the cry of the son of God and those having heard will zoe-live.
[26] For as the father has zoe-life in himself, likewise also to the son he has given zoe-life to be having in himself.
[27] And he gave him authority to be doing judgment, because he is [a] son of man.
[28] Be not marveling at this, that [the] hour comes in which all those in the graves will hear his voice,
[29] and those having done good will come out to [the] resurrection of zoe-life, [but] those having done [as a practice] worthless [things] will come out to [the] resurrection of judgment.
[30] For I am not able to be doing anything from myself; just as I hear do I judge, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek my own will but the will of the [one] having sent me.

More Testimony About Jesus

John 5
[31] If I witness concerning myself, my witness is not true.
[32] Another is witness concerning me, and I know that the witness is true that he witnessed concerning me.
[33] You sent to John, and he has witnessed to the truth;
[34] but I do not receive witness by man, but I say these [things] that you be saved.
[35] That [one] was the burning and shining lamp and you wanted to rejoice for [hour] in his light.

[36] But I have [a] witness greater than John; for the works that the father has given me in order that I complete them, these works themselves which I do witness concerning me that the father has sent me. 
[37] And the father having sent me, that [one] has witnessed concerning me. Neither his voice have you ever heard nor his visible-form have you ever seen, 
[38] and his word you do not have abiding in you, because he whom that [one] has sent, in this [one] do you not believe. 
[39] You search the scriptures, because you suppose in them to be having eternal zoe-life, and these are those witnessing concerning me. 
[40] And you do not want to come to me in order that you have zoe-life. 
[41] I do not receive glory from men, 
[42] but I have known you that you do not have the agape-love of God in yourselves. 
[43] I am come in the name of my father, and you do not receive me; if another come in his own name, that [one] you will receive. 
[44] How are you able to believe, receiving glory from each other, and the glory of the only God you do not seek?
[45] Be not supposing that I will accuse you to the father, the [one] accusing you is Moses, in whom you have hoped. 
[46] For if you were believing Moses, you would have believed me; for concerning me did that [one] write. 
[47] But if you do not believe the writings of that [one], how will you believe in my words?

Jesus' Discourse About the Bread of Life

John 6
[25] And having found him on the other side of the sea they said to him, Rabbi, when did you come [here]?
[26] Jesus answered them and said: Truly truly I say to you, you seek me not because you see signs, but because you ate of the bread and were filled.
[27] Be working not for the perishing food, but for the food abiding to eternal zoe-life, which the son of man will give to you; for God the father has sealed this [one].
[28] So they said to him: What should we be doing, in order that we may be working the works of God?
[29] Jesus answered and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe in whom that [one] has sent.
[30] So they said to him: So, what sign do you work, in order that we may see and believe in you? What do you work?
[31] Our fathers ate manna in the wilderness, just as it is written,
He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

[32] So Jesus said to them: Truly truly I say to you, Moses did not give you bread from heaven, but my father gives you the true bread from heaven. 
[33] For the bread of God is the [one] coming down from heaven and giving zoe-life to the world. 
[34] So they said to him: Lord, always give us this bread
[35] Jesus said to them: I am the bread of zoe-life; the [one] coming to me will not hunger, and the [one] believing in me will not thirst ever. 
[36] But I said to you that you have seen me and do not believe. 
[37] All that the father gives me will come to me, and the [one] coming to me I will not cast out
[38] For I am come down from heaven not in order that I do my will, but the will of the [one] having sent me. 
[39] This is the will of the [one] having sent me, that of all he has given me I not lose [any] of it, but raise it up in the last day. 
[40] For this is the will of my father, that everyone beholding the son and believing in him have zoe-life eternal, and I will raise him up in the last day.
[41] So the Jews were grumbling concerning him because he said: I am the bread having come down from heaven, 
[42] and they were saying: Is this not Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say that he is come down from heaven? 
[43] Jesus answered and said to them: Be not grumbling with each other. 
[44] No one is able to come to me except the father having sent me pull him, and I will raise him up in the last day. 
[45] It is written in the prophets,

And they will all be taught by God.

Everyone having heard the father and having learned [from him] comes toward me. 
[46] Not that anyone has seen the father, except the [one] being from God, this [one] has seen the father. 
[47] Truly truly I say to you, the [one] believing has eternal zoe-life
[48] I am the bread of zoe-life. 
[49] Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 
[50] This is the bread coming down from heaven, in order that anyone who eat of it also not die. 
[51] I am the zoe-living bread having come down out of heaven. If anyone eat of this bread, he will zoe-live to eternity. But the bread that I will give is my flesh in behalf of the zoe-life of the world.
[52] So the Jews were arguing with each other saying: How is this [one] able to give to us his flesh to eat? 
[53] So Jesus said to them: Truly truly I say to you: unless you eat the flesh of the son of man and drink his blood you do not have zoe-life in yourselves. 
[54] The [one] gnawing my flesh and drinking my blood has zoe-life eternal, and I will raise him up in the last day. 
[55] For my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink
[56] The [one] gnawing my flesh and drinking my blood abides in me and I in him. 
[57] Just as the zoe-living father sent me and I zoe-live through the father, also the [one] gnawing me will zoe-live through me. 
[58] This is the bread having come down out of heaven, not just as the fathers ate and died. The [one] gnawing this bread will zoe-live to eternity.

Many Disciples Depart

John 6
[59] This he said in [the] synagogue teaching in Capernaum.
[60] So, many of the disciples having heard him said: This word is hard, who is able to be hearing it?
[61] Now Jesus having known in himself that his disciples grumble concerning this, he said to them: Does this stumble you?
[62] What if you beheld the son of man going up to where he was formerly?
[63] The spirit is the [one] making zoe-alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are zoe-life.
[64] But there are some among you who do not believe. For Jesus had known from the beginning who are those not believing and who is the [one] who will deliver him up.
[65] And he was saying: Because of this I have said to you that no one is able to come towards me except it has been given to him from the father.

Teaching About the Spirit

John 7
[37] Now in the last day of the festival Jesus stood and cried out saying: If anyone thirst, he must be coming to me and drinking.
[38] The [one] believing in me, just as the scripture said:
Rivers of zoe-living water will flow from his belly.

[39] But he said this concerning the spirit that those believing in him were [about] to be receiving. For the spirit was not yet, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Jesus as the Light of the World

John 8
[12] So, again Jesus spoke to them saying: I am the light of the world. The [one] following me shall not walk in darkness, but will have the light of zoe-life.
[13] So the Pharisees said to him: You witness concerning yourself, your witness is not true.
[14] Jesus answered and said to them: And if I witness concerning myself, my witness is true, because I know from where I came and [to] where I depart. But you do not know from where I come or [to] where I depart.
[15] You judge according to the flesh, but I judge no one.
[16] But if I judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but [it is] I and the father having sent me.
[17] And in your law it is written that the witness of two men is true.
[18] I am the [one] witnessing concerning myself, and the father having sent me witnesses concerning me.
[19] So they were saying to him, Where is your father? Jesus answered: You know neither me nor my father. If you had known me, you would have also known my father.
[20] These words he spoke in the treasury teaching in the temple. And no one arrested him, because his hour was not yet come.

Jesus as the Good Shepherd

John 10
[1] Truly truly I say to you, the [one] not coming in through the gate into the sheep-pen but coming up from elsewhere, that [one] is [a] thief and [a] robber.
[2] But the [one] coming in through the gate is [the] shepherd of the sheep.
[3] The gatekeeper opens [the gate] to this [one], and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and he leads them out.
[4] When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
[5] They will not follow [the voice belonging] to [a] stranger, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.
[6] Jesus told them this parable; but these [ones] did not know what it was that he was speaking to them.

[7] So Jesus said again, Truly truly I say to you that I am the gate of the sheep. 
[8] All who came before me are thieves and robbers. But the sheep have not heard them. 
[9] I am the gate. If anyone enter through me, he will be saved, and he will come in and will go out and will find pasture. 
[10] The thief does not come except in order that he steal and slaughter and destroy; I came in order that they have zoe-life and have [it] exceedingly.
[11] I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd appoints his psyche-life in behalf of the sheep. 
[12] But the hired-hand also not being shepherd, of whom the sheep are not his own, he sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees—and the wolf seizes them and scatters [them]— 
[13] [he flees] because he is [a] hired-hand and the sheep are not [a] concern to him.
[14] I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, 
[15] just as the father knows me, and I know the father, and I lay down my psyche-life in behalf of the sheep. 
[16] And I have other sheep that are not of this sheep-pen, and I must lead [these], and they will hear my voice, and they will become one flock, one shepherd. 
[17] Because of this the father agape-loves me, because I lay down my psyche-life, in order that I again receive it. 
[18] No one takes it from me, but I dedicate it myself. I have authority to dedicate it, and I have authority to again receive it; this commandment I received from my father.
[19] [A] division again came to pass among the Jews because of these words. 
[20] And many among them were saying, He has [a] demon and is insane; why do you hear him? 
[21] Others were saying, These words are not [those] of [one] demon-possessed. Is [a] demon able to open [the] eyes of [the] blind?

The Festival of Dedication

John 10
[22] The Festival of Dedication then came to pass in Jerusalem. It was winter,
[23] and Jesus was walking in the temple in the porch of Solomon.
[24] So the Jews encircled him and were saying to him, How long do you hold our psyche-lives [in suspense]? If you are the Christ, tell us openly.
[25] Jesus answered them, I told you and you did not believe. The works that I do in the name of my father, these witness concerning me,
[26] but you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep.
[27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me,
[28] and I give them zoe-life eternal, and they will not perish to eternity, and no one will seize them from my hand.
[29] My father who has given [them] to me is greater than all, and no one is able to be seizing [them] from the hand of my father.
[30] I and my father are one [thing].

[31] The Jews again took up stones in order that they stone him. 
[32] Jesus answered them, Many good works I showed you from my father; for what sort of work among them do you stone me? 
[33] The Jews answered him, Concerning [a] good work we do not stone you but concerning [God] slander, and because you being [a] man make yourself God.
[34] Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law that

I said, You are gods?
[35] If he called them "gods", to whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be loosed,
[36] Do you say of him, whom the father made holy and sent into the world, that: You are slandering [God], because I said: I am [the] son of God?
[37] If I am not doing the works of my father, be not believing in me.
[38] But if I do [them], and if you are not believing in me, [then] be believing in the works, in order that you know and be knowing that the father [is] in me and I in the father.
[39] So they were again seeking to arrest him, and he went out from their hand.

[40] And he departed again to the other side of the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and he abided there. 
[41] And many came to him and were saying that John on the one hand made no sign, but on the other everything as much as John said concerning this [one] was true. 
[42] And many believed in him there.

The Death of Lazarus

John 11
[1] Now someone was being sick, Lazarus from Bethany, from the town of Mariam and Martha her sister.
[2] Now it was Mariam the [one] having anointed the Lord with perfume and having wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
[3] So the sisters sent to Jesus saying: Lord, behold, whom you philia-love is sick.
[4] Now Jesus having heard said: This [one] being sick is not to death but for the glory of God, in order that the son of God be glorified through it.
[5] And Jesus agape-loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.

[6] So as he heard that he is sick, then indeed he abided in the place where he was two days. 
[7] Thereupon after this he says to the disciples: Let us go to Judea again. 
[8] The disciples say to him: Rabbi, now the Jews were seeking to stone you, and you again go back there? 
[9] Jesus answered: Aren't there twelve hours in the day? If anyone walk in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 
[10] But if he walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him
[11] He spoke these [things] and after this he says to them: Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep. But I go in order that I may awaken him. 
[12] So the disciples said to him: Lord, if he is fallen asleep, he will be saved. 
[13] But Jesus had spoken concerning his death. But those [ones] supposed that he speaks concerning the sleep of slumber. 
[14] So then Jesus said to them bluntly: Lazarus has died, 
[15] and I rejoice for [of you], in order that you believe, because I was not there; but let us go to him. 
[16] So Thomas the [one] being called Didimus said to the fellow-disciples: Let us also go in order that we may die with him.
[17] So, coming, Jesus found him already having four days in the tomb. 
[18] Now Bethany was near Jerusalem from [about] fifteen stadions. 
[19] Now many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mariam, in order that they console them concerning [their] brother. 
[20] So Martha, as she heard that Jesus comes, met him; but Mariam was sitting in the house. 
[21] So Martha said to Jesus: Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 
[22] And now I know that as much as you ask God, God will give to you. 
[23] Jesus says to her: Your brother will be resurrected. 
[24] Martha says to him: I know that he will be resurrected in the resurrection in the last day. 
[25] Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the zoe-life. The [one] believing in me even if he die he will zoe-live
[26] and everyone zoe-living and believing in me will not die to eternity. Do you believe this? 
[27] She says to him: Yes Lord, I have believed that you are the Christ, the son of God, the [one] coming into the world.


John 12
[20] Now there were some Greeks going up in order that they worship in the festival.
[21] So these came to Phillip from Bethsaida of Galilee, and they were asking him saying: Lord, we want to see Jesus.
[22] Phillip comes and tells Andrew; Andrew comes—and Phillip, and they tell Jesus.
[23] So Jesus answers them saying: The hour is come that the son of man be glorified.
[24] Truly truly I say to you, unless [a] grain of wheat having fallen into the earth die, it remains alone, but if it die, it bears much fruit.
[25] The [one] philia-loving his psyche-life will lose it, and the [one] hating his psyche-life in this world will guard it to zoe-life eternal.
[26] If anyone be serving me, he must be following me, and where I am, there also will be the [one] serving me. If anyone be serving me, the father will honor him.

[27] Now my psyche-life is troubled, and what should I say? Father, save me from this hour? But because of this I came to this hour. 
[28] Father, glorify your name. [a] voice therefore came from heaven: I have glorified [it] and will again glorify [it]
[29] The crowd therefore having stood and having heard were saying: Thunder came to pass, others were saying: [An] angel has spoken to him. 
[30] Jesus answered and said: This voice did not come to pass because of me but because [of you]. 
[31] Now is the judgment of this world. Now will the ruler of this world be thrown out. 
[32] And if I be lifted up from the earth, I will pull everyone to myself. 
[33] But he was saying this signifying by what sort of death he was [about] to be dying.

Jesus' Final Public Words

John 12
[44] But Jesus cried out and said: The [one] believing in me does not believe in me but [rather] in the [one] having sent me,
[45] and the [one] beholding me beholds the [one] having sent me.
[46] I am light come into the world, in order that everyone believing in me not abide in darkness.
[47] And if anyone hear my words and not guard [them], I do not judge him, for I came not in order that I judge the world, but in order that I save the world.
[48] The [one] setting me aside and not receiving my words has [one] judging him: the word that I spoke—that will judge him in the last day.
[49] Because I have not spoken from myself, but the [one] having sent me, [the] father himself has given to me commandment what I should say and what I should speak.
[50] And I know that his commandment is eternal zoe-life. What therefore I speak, just as the father has spoken to me, thusly I speak.

Jesus' Parting Words to His Disciples

John 14
[1] Let not your1 heart be being troubled. Be believing in God and be believing in me.
[2] In my father's house[hold] are many dwelling-places. If [it were] not [so], I would have told you,
[3] because I go to prepare [a] place for you. And if I go and prepare [a] place for you, again do I come and will take you to myself, in order that where I am you may be also.
[4] And where I go you know the way.

[5] Thomas says to him: Lord, we do not know where you are going. How do we know the way? 
[6] Jesus says to him: I am the way, the truth and the zoe-life; no one comes to the father except through me. 
[7] If you have known me, you will also know my father. And from now [on] you know him and have seen him.
[8] Phillip says to him: Lord, show us the father, and it suffices us.
[9] Jesus says to him: So much time I am with you and you have not known me, Phillip? The [one] having seen me has seen the father. How do you say: Show us the father? 
[10] Do you not believe that I [am] in the father and the father is in me? The words that I say to you [all] I did not speak from myself, but the father dwelling in me does his works. 
[11] Be believing me that I [am] in the father and the father [is] in me. But if not, be believing on account of the works themselves. 
[12] Truly truly I say to you, the [one] believing in me, the works that I do, that [one] also will do, and greater than these will do, because I go to the father. 
[13] And whatever you ask in my name, this will I do, in order that the father be glorified in the son. 
[14] If you ask anything [of] me in my name, I will do [it].

Teaching on the Holy Spirit

John 14
[15] If you agape-love me, you will keep my commandments.
[16] And I will ask the father and he will give you another advocate, in order that he be with you to eternity—
[17] the spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because it does not behold him nor know [him]. You know him, because he dwells with you and will be in you.
[18] I will not leave you orphans, I come to you.
[19] Yet [a] little [while] and the world no longer beholds me, but you behold me, because I zoe-live and you will zoe-live.
[20] In that day you will know that I [am] in my father and you in me and I in you.
[21] The [one] having my commandments and keeping them, that is the [one] agape-loving me; and the [one] agape-loving me will be agape-loved by my father, and I will agape-love him and reveal myself to him.

[22] Judas says to him: not the Iscariot, Lord, and what has happened that you are [about] to reveal yourself to us and not to the world? 
[23] Jesus answered and said to him: If anyone agape-loves me, he will keep my word, and my father will agape-love him, and we will come to him, and we will make our dwelling-place with him. 
[24] The [one] not agape-loving me does not keep to my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but of the father having sent me.
[25] These [things] have I spoken while dwelling with you. 
[26] But the advocate, the Holy Spirit, which the father will send in my name, that [one] will teach you everything and will remind you of everything which I spoke to you.
[27] Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, not just as the world gives do I give to you. Let your heart not be being troubled, neither let it be being cowardly. 
[28] You heard what I said to you: I go, and come [back] to you. If you were agape-loving me, you would have rejoiced that I go to the father, because the father is greater than I. 
[29] And now have I told you before it comes to pass, in order that when it comes to pass, you believe. 
[30] No longer will I speak many [things] with you, for the ruler of the world comes and he has nothing in me, 
[31] but in order that the world know that I agape-love the father, and just as the father commanded me, thus I do. Be arising, let us be going from here.

Jesus Prays for the Father to Glorify Him

John 17
[1] Jesus spoke these [things], and having lifted up his eyes to heavens he said: Father, the hour is come. Glorify your son, in order that the son glorify you.
[2] Just as you gave to him authority over all flesh, in order that all that you gave to him, he give to them eternal zoe-life.
[3] This is eternal zoe-life, that they know you the only true God and whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
[4] I glorified you upon the earth, having completed the work that you gave me in order that I do [it];
[5] and now glorify me, father, in your presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world was.
