Jesus on the Sabbath day cureth him that was diseased eight and thirty years.
John 5:1 After thys was there a feast daye of the Iewes, and Iesus went vp to Ierusalem. John 5:2 And ther is at Ierusalem, by þe slaughterhouse, a pole (which is called in þe Ebrue tonge, Bethseda) hauing fyue porches, John 5:3 in whych laye a greate multitude of sycke folcke, of blinde, halt, and wythered, waytinge for the mouinge of the water. John 5:4 For an angell went doune at a certayne ceason into the pole, and stered the water. Whosoeuer then fyrst (after the steringe of the water) stepped in, was made whoale of whatsoeuer disease he had. John 5:5 And a certayne man was there, whych had bene dyseased .xxxviij. yeres. John 5:6 When Iesus sawe him lye, and knewe that he now longe tyme had bene dyseased, he sayeth vnto him: Wylt thou be made whole? John 5:7 The sycke man answered hym: Syr, I haue no man when the water is troubled, to put me into þe pole. But in the meane time, whyle I am aboute to come, another steppeth downe before me. John 5:8 Iesus sayeth vnto hym ryse, take vp thy bed, & walke. John 5:9 And immediatly the man was made whole, and toke vp hys bed, and walked. And the same daye was the Saboth.
The Jews therefore cavil, and persecute him for it.
John 5:10 The Iewes therfore sayde vnto hym that was made whole: It is the Saboth daye, it is not laufull for the to cary thy bed. John 5:11 He answered them: he that made me whole, sayde vnto me: take vp thy bed, and walke. John 5:12 Then asked they hym: what man is that, whych sayd vnto þe, take vp thy bed & walke? John 5:13 And he that was healed, wist not who it was. For Iesus had gotten him selfe awaye, because that ther was preace of people in that place. John 5:14 Afterwarde, Iesus founde him in the temple, and sayde vnto him: beholde, thou art made whole, synne nomore, lest a worsse thinge happen vnto the. John 5:15 The man departed & tolde the Iewes, that it was Iesus, which had made hym whole. John 5:16 And therfore the Iewes dyd persecute Iesus, and sought the meanes to slee him, because he had done these thynges on the Sabboth daye.
He answereth for himself, and reproveth them, shewing by the testimony of his Father,
John 5:17 And Iesus answered them. My father worketh hitherto, and I worke. John 5:18 Therfore, the Iewes sought the more to kyll him, not onely because he had broken the Sabboth: but sayde also that God was hys father and made hym selfe equall with God. John 5:19 Then answered Iesus, & sayde vnto them: verely, verely. I saye vnto you the sonne can do nothinge of him selfe, but that he seeth the father do. For whatsoeuer he doeth, that doeth the sonne also. John 5:20 For the father loueth þe sonne, and sheweth hym all thinges that he hym selfe doeth. And he will shewe him greater workes then these, because ye shuld maruayle. John 5:21 For lykewyse as the father rayseth vp the deed, and quyckeneth them, euen so the sonne quyckeneth whom he wyll John 5:22 Nether iudgeth the father eny man: but hath commytted all iudgement vnto þe sonne, John 5:23 because that all men shuld honoure the sonne euen as they honoure the father. He that honoureth not the sonne, the same honoureth not the father which hath sent hym. John 5:24 Uerely, verely I saye vnto you. He that heareth my worde, & beleueth on him that sent me, hath euerlasting lyfe, and shall not come into damnacyon: but is scaped from deeth vnto lyfe. John 5:25 Uerely, verely, I saye vnto you þe houre shall come, & nowe it is, when þe deed shall heare þe voyce of the sonne of God. And they that heare, shall lyue. John 5:26 For as the father hath lyfe in hym selfe, so lykewyse hath he geuen to the sonne to haue lyfe in hym selfe: John 5:27 and hath geuen him power also to iudge, because he is the sonne of man. John 5:28 Maruayle not at this: for the houre shal come, in þt which, all that are in the graues, shall heare hys voyce, John 5:29 and shall come forth: they that haue done good, vnto the resurreccion of lyfe: and they that haue done euyll, vnto the resurreccion of damnacion. John 5:30 I can of myne awne selfe do nothing. As I heare, I iudge, and my iudgment is iust, because I seke not myne awne wyll, but þe wyll of the father whych hath sent me John 5:31 If I shulde beare wytnes of my selfe, my wytnes were not true.
John 5:32 Ther is another þt beareth witnes of me: & I am sure, that the wytnes which he beareth of me, is true. John 5:33 Ye sent vnto Iohn, & he bare wytnes vnto þe trueth. John 5:34 But I receaue not the recorde of man. Neuerthelesse, these thinges I saye that ye myght be safe. John 5:35 He was a burnynge, & a shyninge lyght, & ye wolde for a season haue reioysed in hys lyght
of his works,
John 5:36 But I haue greater wytnes, then the wytnes of Iohn For the worckes which the father hath geuen me to finyshe, þe same workes that I do, beare wytnes of me, þt the father hath sent me. John 5:37 And þe father him selfe which hath sent me hath borne witnes of me. Ye haue not hearde hys voyce at eny tyme nor sene hys shape, John 5:38 hys word haue ye not abydinge in you. For whom he hath sent, him ye beleue not.
and of the Scriptures, who he is.
John 5:39 Search the scriptures, for in them ye thinke ye haue eternall lyfe & they are they which testify of me. John 5:40 And yet wyll ye not come to me, that ye myght haue lyfe. John 5:41 I receaue not prayse of men. John 5:42 But I knowe you, that ye haue not þe loue of God in you. John 5:43 I am come in my fathers name and ye receaue me not. If another come in hys awne name, hym wyll ye receaue: John 5:44 How can ye beleue, which receaue honoure one of another, & seke not the honoure that commeth of God onely? John 5:45 Do not thyncke that I wyll accuse you to my father. Ther is one þt accuseth you: euen Moses in whom ye trust. John 5:46 For had ye beleued Moses, ye wolde haue beleued me for he wrote of me. John 5:47 But yf ye beleue not hys wrytinges: how shall ye beleue my wordes?
