Book of John

Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.

49 ‘Sir, come down before my child dies.’

50 ‘Go, your son will live.’

The man took Jesus at his word and departed. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. 52 When he enquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, ‘Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.’

53 Then the father realised that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, ‘Your son will live.’ So he and his whole household believed.

54 This was the second sign Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.

2 Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool. Where a great number of disabled people used to lie – the blind, the lame, the paralysed.

5 One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, ‘Do you want to get well?’

7 ‘Sir, I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.’

8 ‘Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.’ 9 At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’

3 ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned,’ said Jesus, ‘but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.’

6 After saying this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.

7 ‘Go, wash in the Pool of Siloam’. So, the man went and washed, and came home seeing.

8 His neighbours and those who had formerly seen him begging asked,
‘Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?’ 9 Some claimed that he was.

Others said, ‘No, he only looks like him.’

But he himself insisted, ‘I am the man.’

10 ‘How then were your eyes opened?’ they asked.

11 ‘The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes.
He told me to go and wash. So, I went and washed, and then I could see.’

Now a man named Lazarus was sick.

He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.

2 (This Mary, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.)

3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, ‘Lord, the one you love is sick.’

4 ‘This sickness will not end in death.

No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.’

5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.

6 So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7 and then he said to his disciples, ‘Let us go back to Judea.’

8 ‘But Rabbi, a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you?’

11 ‘Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.’

When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.

‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.’

23 ‘Your brother will rise again.’

24 ‘I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.’

25 ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’

27 ‘Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.’

Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 ‘Take away the stone.’

‘But, Lord, by this time there is a bad odour, for he has been there four days.’

40 ‘Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?’

41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said,
‘Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.’

43 ‘Lazarus, come out!’

44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth round his face.

‘Take off the grave clothes and let him go.’
