1Six days before the Passover, Jesus went to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom he had raised fromthe dead. 2They gave a dinner for him there; Martha waited on them and Lazarus was among those at table. 3Mary brought in a pound of very costly ointment, pure nard, and with it anointed the feet of Jesus,wiping them with her hair; the house was fil ed with the scent of the ointment. 4Then Judas Iscariot -- one of his disciples, the man who was to betray him-said, 5'Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denari and the money given to the poor?' 6He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief; he was in charge of thecommon fund and used to help himself to the contents. 7So Jesus said, 'Leave her alone; let her keep it for the day of my burial. 8You have the poor with you always, you wil not always have me.' 9Meanwhile a large number of Jews heard that he was there and came not only on account of Jesusbut also to see Lazarus whom he had raised from the dead. 10Then the chief priests decided to kill Lazarus as well, 11since it was on his account that many of the Jews were leaving them and believing in Jesus. 12The next day the great crowd of people who had come up for the festival heard that Jesus was on hisway to Jerusalem. 13They took branches of palm and went out to receive him, shouting: 'Hosanna! Blessed is he who iscoming in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel.' 14Jesus found a young donkey and mounted it -- as scripture says: 15Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion; look, your king is approaching, riding on the foal of a donkey. 16At first his disciples did not understand this, but later, after Jesus had been glorified, theyremembered that this had been written about him and that this was what had happened to him. 17The crowd who had been with him when he cal ed Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from thedead kept bearing witness to it; 18this was another reason why the crowd came out to receive him: they had heard that he had giventhis sign. 19Then the Pharisees said to one another, 'You see, you are making no progress; look, the whole worldhas gone after him!' 20Among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. 21These approached Philip, who came from Bethsaida in Galilee, and put this request to him, 'Sir, weshould like to see Jesus.' 22Philip went to tell Andrew, and Andrew and Philip together went to tel Jesus. 23Jesus replied to them: Now the hour has come for the Son of man to be glorified. 24In all truth I tell you, unless a wheat grain fal s into the earth and dies, it remains only a single grain;but if it dies it yields a rich harvest. 25Anyone who loves his life loses it; anyone who hates his life in this world wil keep it for eternal life. 26Whoever serves me, must fol ow me, and my servant wil be with me wherever I am. If anyone servesme, my Father wil honour him. 27Now my soul is troubled. What shal I say: Father, save me from this hour? But it is for this veryreason that I have come to this hour. 28Father, glorify your name! A voice came from heaven, 'I have glorified it, and I wil again glorify it.' 29The crowd standing by, who heard this, said it was a clap of thunder; others said, 'It was an angelspeaking to him.' 30Jesus answered, 'It was not for my sake that this voice came, but for yours. 31'Now sentence is being passed on this world; now the prince of this world is to be driven out. 32And when I am lifted up from the earth, I shal draw al people to myself.' 33By these words he indicated the kind of death he would die. 34The crowd answered, 'The Law has taught us that the Christ wil remain for ever. So how can yousay, "The Son of man must be lifted up"? Who is this Son of man?' 35Jesus then said: The light wil be with you only a little longer now. Go on your way while you have thelight, or darkness wil overtake you, and nobody who walks in the dark knows where he is going. 36While you stil have the light, believe in the light so that you may become children of light. Having saidthis, Jesus left them and was hidden from their sight. 37Though they had been present when he gave so many signs, they did not believe in him; 38this was to fulfil the words of the prophet Isaiah: Lord, who has given credence to what they haveheard from us, and who has seen in it a revelation of the Lord's arm? 39Indeed, they were unable to believe because, as Isaiah says again: 40He has blinded their eyes, he has hardened their heart, to prevent them from using their eyes to see,using their heart to understand, changing their ways and being healed by me. 41Isaiah said this because he saw his glory, and his words referred to Jesus. 42And yet there were many who did believe in him, even among the leading men, but they did not admitit, because of the Pharisees and for fear of being banned from the synagogue: 43they put human glory before God's glory. 44Jesus declared publicly: Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in the one who sent me, 45and whoever sees me, sees the one who sent me. 46I have come into the world as light, to prevent anyone who believes in me from staying in the darkany more. 47If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithful y, it is not I who shal judge such a person,since I have come not to judge the world, but to save the world: 48anyone who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already: the word itself that I havespoken wil be his judge on the last day. 49For I have not spoken of my own accord; but the Father who sent me commanded me what to sayand what to speak, 50and I know that his commands mean eternal life. And therefore what the Father has told me is what Ispeak.
