Original Version - of chapter 12

1.  Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was
          which had been dead, whom He raised from the dead.
2.  There they made Him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them
          that sat at the table with Him.
3.  Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the
          feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the
          odor of the ointment.
4.  Then said one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray
5.  Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6.  This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had
          the bag, and bare what was put therein.
7.  Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of My burying hath she kept this.
8.  For the poor always ye have with you; but Me ye have not always.
9.  Much people of the Jews therefore knew that He was there: and they came not for
          Jesus' sake, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom He had raised from the
10.  But the chief priests consulted that they might put (Jesus to death, and ) Lazarus
          also to death;
11.  Because that by reason of him (Lazarus) many of the Jews went away (from the
          religion) and believed on Jesus.
12.  On the next day, much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that
          Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
13.  Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried, "Hosonna:
          Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord".
14.  And Jesus, when He had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
15.  Fear not, daughters of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.
16.  These things understood not His disciples at the first: but when Jesus was
          glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of Him, and that
          they had done these things Him.
17.  The people therefore that were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the grave,
          and raised him from the dead, bare record.
18.  For this cause the people also met Him, for that they heard that He had done this
19.  The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail
          nothing?  Behold, the world is gone after Him.
20.  And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast.
21.  The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and
          desired Him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
22.  Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
23.  And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should
          be glorified (by understanding the Holy Trinity of God within us through our
          wisdom, and God within our wisdom, and through this understanding, by
          becoming "One with" It within us, that is, becoming "One with" the Father, the
          Son, and the Holy Spirit of God within us, and in this way, by allowing It within us
          to again become "One with" God within us, in this way, revealing True Man within
          the Creation of God within us, as the "Oneness of God and His Creation" within
          us.  Amen).
24.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die,
          it abideth alone: but if it die (before it dies or rots in the earth, if it germinates),
          it bringeth forth much fruit.
25.  He that loveth his life (in this world) shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this
          world shall keep it unto life eternal.
26.  If any man serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall My servant be:
          if any man serve Me (by becoming "One with" Me, who is his Light life within him,
          and doing this through his wisdom, by first becoming "One with" his wisdom, who
          is his Spirit within him, or "John the Baptist" within him), him will My Father
27.  Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say?  Father, save Me from this hour:
          but for this cause came I unto this hour.
28.  Father, glorify Thy Name.  Then came a voice from heaven, saying, I have both
          glorified It, and will glorify it again.
29.  The people therefore, that stood by, and heard It, said that It thundered: others
          said, An angel spake to Him.
30.  Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of Me, but for your sakes.
31.  Now is the Judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out
          (of each of you, if that be your true intention, the prince of this world of darkness
          that we see in our ignorance as existing on the "outside" of us).
32.  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me (if that be their true
          intention, to become "One with" Me in the next world, before they die, to be "One
          with" the Holy Trinity of My Father within them, which is the Father, the Son, and
          the Holy Spirit within them in the next world, before they die and rot in the earth
          of this world).
33.  This He said, signifying what death He should die (and signifying what death each
          of us should die, if "Oneness with" Him in the next world, before we die in this
          world, be our true intention).
34.  The people answered Him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for
          ever: and how sayest Thou, The Son of man must be lifted up?  Who is this Son
          of man?
35.  Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you.  Walk while ye
          have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness
          knoweth not whither he goeth.
36.  While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the Children of light.
          These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide Himself from them.
37.  But though He had done so many miracles before them, yet they believe not on
38.  That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord,
          who hath believed our report?  And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been
39.  Therefore, they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
40.  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their hearts; that they should not see
          with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, and be converted, and I shall
          heal them.
41.  These things said Esaias, when he saw His glory, and spake of Him.
42.  Nevertheless among the chief rules also many believed on Him; but because of
          the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the
43.  For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
44.  Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on Me, believeth not on Me, but on Him
          that sent Me.
45.  And he that seeth Me seeth Him that sent Me.
46.  I am come a light into the world, that he whosoever believeth on Me should not
          abide in the darkness.
47.  And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to
          judge the world, but to save the world.
48.  He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the
          Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49.  For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father which sent Me, He gave Me a
          commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50.  And I know that His commandment is life everlasting: whatever I speak therefore,
          even as the Father said unto Me, so I speak.
