John 19-21 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
19 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged Him.
2 And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and they put on Him a purple robe
3 and said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they smote Him with their hands.
4 Pilate therefore went forth again and said unto them, “Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.”
5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said unto them, “Behold the man!”
6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Pilate said unto them, “Ye take him and crucify him, for I find no fault in him.”
7 The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.”
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid.
9 And he went again into the judgment hall and said unto Jesus, “From whence art thou?” But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Then said Pilate unto Him, “Speakest thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?”
11 Jesus answered, “Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin.”
12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, “If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend. Whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.”
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 And it was the Preparation of the Passover and about the sixth hour, and Pilate said unto the Jews, “Behold your king!”
15 But they cried out, “Away with him, away with him! Crucify him!” Pilate said unto them, “Shall I crucify your king?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!”
16 Then he delivered Him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led Him away.
17 And He, bearing His cross, went forth into a place called the Place of a Skull (which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha)
18 where they crucified Him and two others with Him, one on either side and Jesus in the midst.
19 And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was: Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.
20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city, and it was written in Hebrew and Greek and Latin.
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, “Write not ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’”
22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part, and also His coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which saith, “They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture did they cast lots.” These things therefore the soldiers did.
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother and the disciple standing by whom He loved, He said unto His mother, “Woman, behold thy son!”
27 Then said He to the disciple, “Behold thy mother!” And from that hour, that disciple took her unto his own home.
28 After this Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst.”
29 Now there was set there a vessel full of vinegar; and they filled a sponge with vinegar and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, “It is finished.” And He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, and so that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day (for that Sabbath day was a high day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him.
33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was dead already, they broke not His legs,
34 but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith there came out blood and water.
35 And he that saw it bore record, and his record is true, and he knoweth that he saith truly, that ye might believe.
36 For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled: “A bone of Him shall not be broken.”
37 And again another Scripture saith, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”
38 And after this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus.
39 And there came also Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds in weight.
40 Then took they the body of Jesus and wound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the manner of the Jews for burial.
41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher wherein was never man yet laid.
42 There they laid Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ Preparation Day, for the sepulcher was nigh at hand.
20 On the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher and saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher.
2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said unto them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulcher, and we know not where they have laid Him!”
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher.
4 And they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came first to the sepulcher.
5 And stooping down and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he went not in.
6 Then came Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher and saw the linen cloths as they lay
7 and the napkin that had been about His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then the other disciple, who came first to the sepulcher, went in also; and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11 But Mary stood outside at the sepulcher weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulcher,
12 and saw two angels in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou?” She said unto them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.”
14 And when she had thus said, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, “Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said unto her, “Mary!” She turned herself and said unto Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, “Master”).
17 Jesus said unto her, “Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say unto them, ‘I ascend unto My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that He had spoken these things unto her.
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in their midst and said unto them, “Peace be unto you.”
20 And when He had so said, He showed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, “Peace be unto you. As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you.”
22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.
23 Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.”
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said unto them, “Unless I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days the disciples were again within, and Thomas was with them. Then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be unto you.”
27 Then said He to Thomas, “Reach hither thy finger and behold My hands, and reach hither thy hand and thrust it into My side: and be not faithless, but believing.”
28 And Thomas answered and said unto Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said unto him, “Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed. Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.”
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book.
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, ye might have life through His name.
21 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way showed He Himself:
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples.
3 Simon Peter said unto them, “I am going fishing.” They said unto him, “We also go with thee.” They went forth and entered into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus said unto them, “Children, have ye any meat?” And they answered Him, “No.”
6 And He said unto them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find.” They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said unto Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his fisher’s coat unto him (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little boat (for they were not far from land, but, as it were, two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fishes.
9 As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon and bread.
10 Jesus said unto them, “Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.”
11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty three; and though there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
12 Jesus said unto them, “Come and dine.” And none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who art Thou?” knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then came and took bread and gave it to them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me more than these?” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He said unto him, “Feed My lambs.”
16 He said to him again the second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me?” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He said unto him, “Feed My sheep.”
17 He said unto him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me?” Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, “Lovest thou Me?” And he said unto Him, “Lord, Thou knowest all things. Thou knowest that I love Thee.” Jesus said unto him, “Feed My sheep.
18 Verily, verily I say unto thee, when thou wast young, thou girded thyself and walked whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.”
19 This spoke He, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said unto him, “Follow Me.”
20 Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at supper, and said, “Lord, who is he that betrayeth Thee?”
21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “Lord, and what shall this man do?”
22 Jesus said unto him, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou Me.”
23 Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. Yet Jesus had not said unto him, “He shall not die,” but, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?”
24 This is the disciple who testifieth of these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
