Mary Anoints Jesus
(Matthew 26:6–13; Mark 14:3–9; Luke 7:36–50)

1Then Jesus, six days before the passover came into Bethany, where Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead, was, 2Then they made a supper for Him there: and Martha was serving; and Lazarus was one of those sitting at the table with Him. 3Then Mary taking a pound of myrrh of spikenard, estimated very valuable, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the myrrh. 4Then Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, the one about to betray Him, says: 5Why was not this myrrh sold for three hundred denaria, and given to the poor? 6And He spoke this, not because there was a care to him for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the purse, and was carrying those things cast in. 7Then Jesus said, Let her alone; she hath reserved this unto the day of my burial; 8for you have the poor always with you; but you have not me always.

The Plot to Kill Lazarus

9then a great multitude of the Jews came not only on account of Jesus, but that they might see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead; because he was there. 10But the chief priest passed an edict that they would also slay Lazarus; 11because through him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

The Triumphal Entry
(Matthew 21:1–11; Mark 11:1–11; Luke 19:28–40)

12On the following day a great multitude having come to the feast, hearing that Jesus comes into Jerusalem, 13They took the branches of the palm-trees, and went out to meet Him, and continued to cry out, Hosanna: blessed is He that cometh, in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel. 14And Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat upon him, as has been written, 15Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting upon the colt of a donkey. 16But His disciples at first did not understand these things: but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written in reference to Him, and they did them to Him. 17Then the multitude being with Him witnessed that He called Lazarus out of the sepulcher, and raised him from the dead. 18Therefore the multitude also went to meet Him, because they heard that He had wrought this miracle. 19Then the Pharisees said to one another, You see, that you are prevailing as to nothing: behold, the world has gone away after Him.

Jesus Predicts His Death

20And there was certain Greeks of those having come up that they might worship at the feast: 21then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and requested him, saying, Sir, we wish to see Jesus. 22Philip comes and tells Andrew: Andrew and Philip go, and speak to Jesus. 23And Jesus responds to them, saying, The hour has come, that the Son of man may be glorified. 24Truly, truly, I say unto you, Unless the grain of wheat having fallen into the ground may die, it remains alone; but if it may die, it produces much fruit. 25The one loving his soul shall lose it; but the one that hateth his soul in this world will preserve it unto eternal life. 26If any one may minister unto me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall my minister be: if any one may minister unto me, the Father will honor him.

27Now my soul is troubled; and what do I say? Father, save me from this hour. But on this account I came to this hour. 28Father, glorify thy name. Then a voice came from heaven, I have indeed glorified thee, and will glorify thee again. 29Then the multitudes standing, hearing, said, That it was thunder; others said, An angel has spoken to Him. 30Jesus responded and said, This voice was not on account of me, but on account of you. 31Now is the judgment of this world: now the prince of this world shall be cast out. 32And if I may be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men towards me. 33And He spoke this, signifying by what death He was about to die. 34Then the multitude responded to Him; We have heard from the law that Christ abideth forever; and how do You say, That it behooveth the Son of man to be lifted up? who is this Son of man? 35Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while the light is with you. Walk about as you have the light, in order that the darkness may not overtake you: and he that walketh about in darkness does not know where he is going. 36While you have the light, believe in the light, in order that you may be the sons of light. And Jesus spoke these things, and having gone out was hidden from them.

Belief and Unbelief

37And He having done so many miracles in their presence, they were not believing on Him, 38in order that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 39Wherefore were they not able to believe, because Isaiah again said, 40He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; in order that they may not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and turn, and I shall heal them. 41Isaiah said these things, because he saw His glory; and spoke concerning Him.

42Nevertheless indeed many of the rulers also believed on Him; but they were not confessing Him on account of the Pharisees, in order that they might not be put out of the synagogues: 43for they loved the glory of the people more than the glory of God.

44But Jesus cried out and said; The one believing on me, believes not on me, but on Him that sent me, 45and the one seeing me, sees the one that sent me. 46I have come a light into the world, in order that every one believing on me may not abide in darkness. 47And if any one may hear my words, and not keep them, I do not judge him: for I came not that I may judge the world, but that I may save the world. 48He that rejects me, and receiving not my words, has one judging him: the word which I have spoken, it will judge him in the last day. 49Because I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father Himself having sent me, gave me commandment, what I shall speak, and what I shall say. 50And I know that His commandment is eternal life. Now whatsoever thing I say, as the Father has spoken unto me, so I say.
