Iesus went vnto mout Oliuete.
And early in the mornyng he came agayne into the temple, and all the people came vnto hym, & he sate downe and taught them.
And the scribes and pharisees brought vnto hym a woman taken in adulterie, & when they had set her in the middes,
They sayde vnto hym: Maister, this woman was taken in adulterie, euen as the deede was a doyng.
Moyses in the lawe commaunded vs that suche shoulde be stoned: But what sayest thou?
This they sayde to tempte hym, that they myght accuse hym.
But Iesus stowped downe, and with his fynger wrote on the grounde.
So, when they continued asking him, he lyft vp hym selfe, & sayde vnto them: Let hym that is among you without sinne, caste the first stone at her.
And agayne he stowped downe, and wrote on the grounde.
And when they hearde this, beyng accused of their owne consciences, they went out one by one, begynnyng at the eldest, euen vnto the last: and Iesus was left alone, & the woman standyng in the myddes.
When Iesus had lyft vp hym selfe, & sawe no man but the woman, he sayde vnto her: Woma where are those thine accusers?
Hath no man condempned thee?
She sayde, No man Lorde.
And Iesus sayde, Neither do I condempne thee: Go, and sinne no more.
Then spake Iesus agayne vnto them, saying, I am the light of ye world: He that foloweth me, doth not walke in darknesse, but shal haue the light of life.
The pharisees therfore said vnto him: Thou bearest recorde of thy selfe, thy recorde is not true.
Iesus aunswered, & saide vnto them: Though I beare recorde of my selfe, yet my recorde is true.
For I knowe whence I came, & whyther I go: But ye can not tel whence I come, and whyther I go.
Ye iudge after the fleshe, I iudge no man.
And if I iudge, my iudgement is true: For I am not alone, but I and the father that sent me.
It is also written in your lawe, that the testimonie of two men is true.
I am one that beareth witnesse of my selfe, & the father that sent me beareth witnesse of me.
Then sayde they vnto hym: Where is thy father?
Iesus aunswered, Ye neither knowe me, nor yet my father: Yf ye had knowen me, ye should haue knowen my father also.
These wordes spake Iesus in ye treasurie, as he taught in the temple, and no man layde handes on hym, for his houre was not yet come.
Then sayde Iesus againe vnto them: I go my way, and ye shall seeke me, and shall dye in your synnes: Whyther I go, thyther can ye not come.
Then sayde the Iewes: Wyll he kyll hym selfe, because he saith, whyther I go, thyther can ye not come?
And he sayde vnto them: ye are from beneathe, I am from aboue: ye are of this worlde, I am not of this worlde.
I sayde therefore vnto you, that you shall dye in your sinnes.
For yf ye beleue not that I am he, ye shall dye in your sinnes.
Then sayde they vnto hym: Who art thou?
And Iesus saith vnto them: Euen the very same thyng that I sayde vnto you from the begynnyng.
I haue many thynges to saye, and to iudge of you.
Yea, & he that sent me, is true: And I speake to the world, those thynges which I haue hearde of hym.
Howebeit, they vnderstoode not that he spake to them of his father.
Then saide Iesus vnto them: When ye haue lift vp [an hye] the sonne of man, then shall ye knowe that I am he, and that I do nothyng of my selfe: but as my father hath taught me, euen so I speake these thynges.
And he that sent me, is with me.
The father hath not left me alone: For I do alwayes those thynges that please him.
As he spake those wordes, many beleued on hym.
Then sayde Iesus to those Iewes which beleued on him: Yf ye continue in my word, then are ye my very disciples.
And ye shall knowe the trueth, and the trueth shall make you free.
They aunswered hym: We be Abrahams seede, and were neuer bonde to any man: howe sayest thou then, ye shalbe made free?
Iesus aunswered them: Ueryly, veryly I say vnto you, that whosoeuer comitteth sinne, is the seruaunt of sinne.
And the seruaut abideth not in ye house for euer: but the sonne abydeth euer.
Yf the sonne therefore shall make you free, then are ye free in deede.
I know that ye are Abrahams seede, but ye seke [meanes] to kyll me, because my worde hath no place in you.
I speake that whiche I haue seene with my father: and ye do that whiche ye haue seene with your father.
They aunswered, and saide vnto him: Abraham is our father.
Iesus saith vnto them: Yf ye were Abrahams childre, ye woulde do the workes of Abraham.
But now ye go about to kyll me, a ma that hath tolde you the trueth, which I haue heard of god: this did not Abraha.
Ye do the deedes of your father.
Then said they to him: We be not borne of fornication, we haue one father, euen God.
Iesus saide vnto them: Yf God were your father, truely ye woulde loue me: For I proceaded foorth, and came from God: neither came I of my selfe, but he sent me.
Why do ye not knowe my speache?
euen because ye cannot heare my word.
Ye are of your father the deuyll, and the lustes of your father wyll ye do.
He was a murtherer from the begynnyng, and abode not in the trueth: because there is no trueth in hym.
When he speaketh a lye, he speaketh of his owne: For he is a lyer, and the father of the same thyng.
And because I tel you the trueth, therfore ye beleue me not.
Which of you rebuketh me of sinne?
Yf I say the trueth, why do not ye beleue me?
He that is of god, heareth gods wordes.
Ye therfore heare the not, because ye are not of God.
Then aunswered the Iewes, & saide vnto hym: Say we not well that thou art a Samaritane, and hast the deuyl?
Iesus aunswered, I haue not the deuyll: but I honour my father, and ye haue dishonoured me.
I seke not myne owne praise, there is one that seketh, and iudgeth.
Ueryly veryly I saye vnto you, yf a man kepe my saying, he shall neuer see death.
Then sayde the Iewes vnto hym: Now know we that thou hast ye deuyll.
Abraham is dead, & the prophetes: and thou sayest, yf a man kepe my saying, he shall neuer taste of death.
Art thou greater the our father Abraham, which is dead?
and the prophetes are dead: whom makest thou thy selfe?
Iesus aunswered: Yf I honour my selfe, mine honour is nothing.
It is my father that honoureth me, which ye say is your God:
And yet ye haue not knowen him, but I knowe hym: And if I say I knowe hym not, I shalbe a lyer lyke vnto you.
But I knowe hym, & kepe his saying.
Your father Abraham was glad to see my day: and he saw it, and reioyced.
Then sayde the Iewes vnto hym: Thou art not yet fiftie yeres olde, & hast thou seene Abraham.
Iesus sayde vnto them: Ueryly, veryly I saye vnto you, before Abraham was, I am.
Then toke they vp stones to caste at hym: but Iesus hyd hym selfe, and went out of the temple.
