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

1Then Iesus sixe dayes before ester came to Bethany where Lazarus was which was deed and who Iesus raysed from deeth. 2There they made him a supper and Martha served: But Lazarus was one of them that sate at the table with him. 3Then toke Mary a pounde of oyntmet called Nardus perfecte and precious and anoynted Iesus fete and wipt his fete with her heer and the housse was filled of the savre of the oyntmet. 4Then sayde one of his disciples name Iudas Iscariot Simos sonne which afterwarde betrayed him: 5why was not this oyntmet solde for thre hondred pence and geve to the poore? 6This sayde he not that he cared for the pooer: but because he was a thefe and kept the bagge and bare that which was geven. 7Then sayde Iesus: Let her alone agaynst the daye of my buryinge she kept it. 8The poore all wayes shall ye have with you but me shall ye not all wayes have.

The Plot to Kill Lazarus

9Moche people of the Iewes had knowledge that he was there. And they came not for Iesus sake only but yt they myght se Lazarus also whom he raysed from deeth. 10The hye prestes therfore held a counsell that they myght put Lazarus to deeth also 11because that for his sake many of the Iewes went awaye and beleved on Iesus.

The Triumphal Entry
(Zechariah 9:9–13; Matthew 21:1–11; Mark 11:1–11; Luke 19:28–40)

12On the morowe moche people that were come to the feast when they hearde yt Iesus shuld come to Ierusalem 13toke braunches of palme trees and went and met him and cryed: Hosanna blessed is he that in the name of the Lorde commeth kynge of Israel. 14And Iesus got a yonge asse and sate thero accordinge to that which was writte: 15feare not doughter of Sio beholde thy kynge cometh sittinge on an asses coolte. 16These thinges vnderstode not his disciples at ye fyrst: but when Iesus was gloryfied then remembryd they that soche thinges were written of him and that soche thinges they had done vnto him. 17The people that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave and raysed him from deeth bare recorde. 18Therfore met him the people be cause they hearde yt he had done soche a myracle. 19The Pharises therfore sayde amonge them selves: perceave ye how we prevayle no thinge? beholde the worlde goth awaye after him.

Jesus Predicts His Death

20Ther were certayne Grekes amoge them that came to praye at the feast: 21the same cam to Philip which was of Bethsayda a cyte in Galile and desired him sayinge: Syr we wolde fayne se Iesus. 22Philip came and tolde Andrew. And agayne Andrew and Philip tolde Iesus. 23And Iesus answered them sayinge: the houre is come yt the sonne of ma must be glorified. 24Verely verely I saye vnto you except ye wheate corne fall into the grounde and dye it bydeth alone. Yf it dye it brengeth forth moche frute. 25He that loveth his lyfe shall destroye it: and he yt hateth his lyfe in this worlde shall kepe it vnto lyfe eternall. 26If eny man mynister vnto me let him folowe me and where I am there shall also my minister be. And yf eny man minister vnto me him will my father honoure.

27Now is my soule troubled and what shall I saye? Father delyver me from this houre: but therfore came I vnto this houre 28Father glorify thy name. Then came ther a voyce fro heaven: I have glorified it and will glorify it agayne. 29Then sayd the people yt stode by and hearde: it thoundreth. Other sayde an angell spake to him. 30Iesus answered and sayde: this voyce cam not because of me but for youre sakes. 31Now is the iudgement of this worlde: now shall ye prince of this worlde be cast out. 32And I yf I were lifte vp from the erthe will drawe all men vnto me. 33This sayde Iesus signifyinge what deeth he shuld dye. 34The people answered him: We have hearde of ye lawe yt Christ bydeth ever: and how sayest thou then that the sonne of man must be lifte vp? who is yt sonne of ma? 35Then Iesus sayde vnto them: yet a lytell whyle is the light wt you. Walke whill ye have light lest the darcknes come on you. He that walketh in the darke wotteth not whither he goeth. 36Whyll ye have light beleve on the light that ye maye be the chyldren of light. These thinges spake Iesus and departed and hyd him silfe fro them.

Belief and Unbelief

37And though he had done so many myracles before them yet beleved not they on him 38yt the sayinge of Esayas the Prophet myght be fulfilled yt he spake. Lorde who shall beleve oure sayinge? And to whom ys the arme of ye Lorde opened? 39Therfore coulde they not beleve because yt Esaias sayth agayne: 40he hath blinded their eyes and hardened their hertes that they shuld not se with their eyes and vnderstonde with their hertes and shuld be converted and I shuld heale the. 41Soche thinges sayde Esaias when he sawe his glory and spake of him.

42Neverthelesse amoge ye chefe rulers many beleved on him. But because of the pharises they wolde not be a knowen of it lest they shuld be excommunicate. 43For they loved the prayse yt is geven of men more then the prayse that cometh of God.

44And Iesus cryed and sayde: he that beleveth on me beleveth not on me but on him yt sent me. 45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 46I am come a light into the worlde that whosoever beleveth on me shuld not byde in darcknes. 47And yf eny man heare my wordes and beleve not I iudge him not. For I came not to iudge the worlde: but to save ye worlde. 48He that refuseth me and receaveth not my wordes hath one that iudgeth him. The wordes that I have spoken they shall iudge him in ye last daye. 49For I have not spoken of my selfe: but the father which sent me he gave me a commaundemet what I shuld saye and what I shuld speake. 50And I knowe that this comaundement is lyfe everlastinge. Whatsoever I speake therfore eve as the father bade me so I speake.
