What will you do with “The Way of the Cross” in your Life?
-  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
-  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
-  And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
-  And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
-  He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
-  And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
-  Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
-  And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
-  Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
-  Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
-  And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
-  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
-  And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
-  And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
-  And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
-  Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
-  The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
-  For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
-  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
-  And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
-  As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
-  But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
-  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
-  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
-  (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
-  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
-  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
-  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Matthew 26:  Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.
 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.
 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.
 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.
 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
Matthew 27:  When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
 And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.
 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
 And sitting down they watched him there;
 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s children.
 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:
 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
Matthew 28:  In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.
 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Mark 14:  And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
 And they all forsook him, and fled.
 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
 But neither so did their witness agree together.
 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
Mark 15:  And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.
 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.
 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
 And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.
 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
 And they cried out again, Crucify him.
 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
 (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
 Joseph of Arimathaea, and honourable counseller, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
Mark 16:  And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
 And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Luke 22:  And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.
 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.
 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
Luke 23:  And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.
 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.
 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counseller; and he was a good man, and a just:
 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Luke 24:  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
 And they remembered his words,
 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass therein these days?
 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
 And he took it, and did eat before them.
 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
 And ye are witnesses of these things.
 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
John 18:  When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.
 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not.
 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.
 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
John 19:  Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priest answered, We have no king but Caesar.
 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
John 20:  The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
 Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
What will you do, before your departure from this Earth Life???
