Chapter Twelve

THEN IaHUShUA' six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where El`azar was, whom IaHUShUA' awoke out of lifelessness.
2 This being so, they made Him a dinner there; and Martha served: moreover El`azar was one of these that reclined at the table with Him.
3 So Miriam, taking a pound of ointment of pure nard (spikenard), highly valued, applied it to the feet of IaHUShUA',and wiped His feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4 Then said one of His disciples, Iahudah Iscariot, which was about to turn Him in,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was an embezzler, and carried the purse, and held what was tossed in it.
7 Then said IaHUShUA',Leave her be: for unto the day of preparing Me for burial, she has attended to it.
8 For the poor at all times you have with you; but Me you have not at all times.
9 Many people of the Iahudim therefore knew that He was there: and they came not only on account of IaHUShUA',but in order that they might see El`azar also, whom he had aroused from death.
10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put El`azar also to death;
11 Because by reason of him many of the Iahudim went away, trusting toward IaHUShUA.
12 On the next day the multitude that were come to the feast, when they heard that He was coming to IeRUShaLeM,
13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried out, HOShA-NA (Deliver us, Please!): Blessed is He that comes in the Name of IaHUeH, even the King of IeShRaEL.
14 And IaHUShUA',when He had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written:
15 "Rejoice greatly, daughter of Tsion: behold, your King comes riding upon an ass's colt." (Zech. 9:9)
16 These things His disciples understood not at first: but when IaHUShUA' was exalted, then they remembered that these things were of Him written, and these things they had done unto Him.
17 Consequently the people testified that were with Him when He called El`azar out of the tomb, and awoke him out of death.
18 For this reason also the people met Him, for they heard that he had done this miracle.
19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world to follow Him is gone off.
20 And there were certain Greeks among these, coming up to worship at the feast:
21 The same came then to Philip, this from Bethsaida of Galilee, and entreated him, saying, Sir, we desire to see IaHUShUA.
22 Comes this Philip and tells Andrew: came Andrew also Philip and tell IaHUShUA.
23 But IaHUShUA' answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of ENOSh should be exalted.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you Unless this a kernel of wheat fall into the ground to die, it remains alone: but if it die, it bears much fruit.
25 Who loves their life, the same shall destroy it; but those that detest life in this world, by this into life everlasting, shall keep (guard) it.
26 If to Me a certain one, be a servant, Me let them be, in the same way with; indeed where I am, there also this servant, this of Me shall be: provided that certain one, Me serve, will esteem this One, the Father.
27 Now this breath of life, Me is troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour: but for this cause came I toward this hour.
28 Father, magnify Your Name. Came there consequently a voice from on high, Even I have magnified, also again will magnify.
29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard, said it became thunder: others said, An angel to Him has spoken.
30 IaHUShUA' answered and said, Not on account of Me, this voice came but rather for you.
31 Now is decision (crisis, the turning point, a point by which to judge; a criterion) concerning this world: now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.
32 And I, in case I be lifted up from the earth, will draw everyone toward Me.
33 This He said, to indicate what sort of death He was about to die.
34 Answered Him then the people, We have heard out of the law that Ha-MaShIaCh abides into this forever: but in what way say You, It is necessary, to be lifted up the Son of 'ENOSh? Who is this, the Son of 'ENOSh?
35 Said then to them IaHUShUA',Yet a little time the light with you is. Walk in the manner, the light you hold, in order that, not darkness you eagerly take: indeed that one which treads all around in the darkness, percieves not where they lead their self under.
36 In the manner the light you hold, be faithful unto that light, in order that children of light you may begin to be.
44 IaHUShUA' cried out moreover and said, These that are faithful toward Me, are established, not in the direction of Me, but toward Him that sent Me.
45 Also the one that distinguishes (sees) Me, distinguishes this One that sent Me.
46 I a Light, into the world am come, in order that this every one, giving credence among Me, in darkness should not remain.
47 And in the event any person hear these My Words, and not keep watch (guard), I don't esteem the same: not the reason I came, for the purpose of judging (exercising authority over) the world, but to rescue (liberate) the world. (krino = to separate, to approve, to distinguish, to determine, to judge, to rule, to govern, to contend together, to dispute, to have suit at law, etc.)
48 The one disregarding Me, and not receiving these words of Me, holds one that judges him: the Word that I have spoken, that Word shall condemn him in the end time.
49 Because I of Myself have not spoken; but who sent Me, Father He gave Me a commandment, what certain thing, I should speak, and what certain words I should utter.
50 And I percieve that, this Commandment His, life everlasting is: what things being so I speak, according to what said to Me, the Father, so I speak.
36 These things spoke IaHUShUA',and departing, did hide from them.
37 Whereas He had done so many miracles in front of them, they were not persuaded toward Him:
38 In order that the saying of IeSha-IaHU the prophet be fulfilled, which he spoke, "Who has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of IaHUeH revealed?" (Isa. 53:1)
39 Through this they were not able to believe, because IeSha-IaHU had said, (Isa. 6:10)
40 "He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them."
41 These things said IeSha-IaHU, when he saw His excellence, and spoke of Him.
42 Yet still indeed though, even out of the chief leaders also many were persuaded toward Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess, unless that put out of the synagogue, they should be:
43 For they loved the exaltation of man, rather than the exaltation of IaHUeH.
