Joh:11:48: If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
Joh:11:49: And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
Joh:11:50: Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
Joh:11:51: And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
Joh:11:52: And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
Joh:11:53: Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
Joh:11:54: Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
Joh:11:55: And the Jewsí passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.
Joh:11:56: Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
Joh:11:57: Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
Joh: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.
Joh:12:2: There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
Joh:12:3: 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 odour of the ointment.
Joh:12:4: Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simonís son, which should betray him,
Joh:12:5: Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
Joh:12:6: 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.
Joh:12:7: Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
Joh:12:8: For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
Joh:12:9: Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesusí sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
Joh:12:10: But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
Joh:12:11: Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
Joh:12:12: On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
Joh:12:13: Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Joh:12:14: And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
Joh:12:15: Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an assís colt.
Joh:12:16: 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 unto him.
Joh:12:17: The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
Joh:12:18: For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
Joh:12:19: The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
Joh:12:20: And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
Joh:12:21: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
Joh:12:22: Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
Joh:12:23: And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
Joh:12:24: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
