to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

Wherefore, I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

CHAPTER XLIII. Jesus is accompanied to the Passover by pious
women, who administer to him. And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,
And certain women which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

AFTER this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
Now there is at Jerusalem, by the sheepmarket, a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first, after the troubling of the water, stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
And a certain man was there which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long tiine in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole ?
The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put, me into the pool : but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked : and on the same day was the sabbath.
The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath-day; it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
Heanswered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take
up thy bed, and walk.
Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
And he that was healed wist not who it was : for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole : sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus which had made him whole.
And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath-day.
But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what thing soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye
For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them : even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgement unto the Son:
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son, honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
And hath given him authority to execute judgement also, because he is the Son of man.
