The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.
32 And we declare unto you, that the promise which was made to our fathers,
33 This same God hath fulfilled to our children, raising up Jesus, as in the second psalm
also is written: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
27 He shall cry out to me: Thou art my father: my God, and the support of my salvation.
28 And I will make him my firstborn, high above the kings of the earth.
For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a son is given to us, and the government is upon
and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the
world to come, the Prince of Peace.
8 And now, O Lord, thou art our father, and we are clay: and thou art our maker,
and we all are the works of thy hands.
Therefore at least at this time call to me: Thou art my father, the guide of my
But I said: How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a lovely land,
the goodly inheritance of the armies of the Gentiles? And I said: Thou shalt call me
father and shalt cease to walk after me.
So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father who is in heaven.
That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun
to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.
Take heed that you do not your justice before men, to be seen by them: otherwise
you shall not have a reward of your Father who is in heaven.
That thy alms may be in secret, and thy Father who seeth in secret will repay
But thou when thou shalt pray, enter into thy chamber, and having shut the door,
pray to thy Father in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret will repay thee.
Be not you therefore like to them, for your Father knoweth what is needful for
you, before you ask him.
Thus therefore shall you pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy
For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you
But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your
That thou appear not to men to fast, but to thy Father who is in secret: and thy
Father who seeth in secret, will repay thee.
Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather
into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than
For after all these things do the heathens seek. For your Father knoweth that you
have need of all these things.
If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much
more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?
Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of
heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven.
For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the
ground without your Father.
Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him
before my Father who is in heaven.
But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who
is in heaven.
At that time Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven
and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed
them to the little ones.
Yea, Father; for so hath it seemed good in thy sight.
All things are delivered to me by my Father. And no one knoweth the Son, but the
Father: neither doth any one know the Father, but the Son, and he to whom it shall please
the Son to reveal him.
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my
brother, and sister, and mother.
Then shall the just shine as the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. He that
hath ears to hear, let him hear.
But he answering them, said: Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not
planted, shall be rooted up.
And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh
and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their
angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
Even so it is not the will of your Father, who is in heaven, that one of these
little ones should perish.
Again I say to you, that if two of you shall consent upon earth, concerning any
thing whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done to them by my Father who is in heaven.
So also shall my heavenly Father do to you, if you forgive not every one his
brother from your hearts.
He saith to them: My chalice indeed you shall drink; but to sit on my right or
left hand, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father.
And call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven.
But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Father
Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed
of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
And going a little further, he fell upon his face, praying, and saying: My
Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but
as thou wilt.
Again the second time, he went and prayed, saying: My Father, if this chalice may
not pass away, but I must drink it, thy will be done.
Thinkest thou that I cannot ask my Father, and he will give me presently more
than twelve legions of angels?
Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and
sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the
glory of his Father with the holy angels.
And when you shall stand to pray, forgive, if you have aught against any man;
that your Father also, who is in heaven, may forgive you your sins.
But of that day or hour no man knoweth, neither the angels in heaven, nor the
Son, but the Father.
And he saith: Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee: remove this chalice
from me; but not what I will, but what thou wilt.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him the Son of man shall
be ashamed, when he shall come in his majesty, and that of his Father, and of the holy
In that same hour, he rejoiced in the Holy Ghost, and said: I confess to thee, O
Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hidden these things from the wise and
prudent, and hast revealed them to little ones. Yea, Father, for so it hath seemed good in
All things are delivered to me by my Father; and no one knoweth who the Son is,
but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and to whom the Son will reveal him.
And he said to them: When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much
more will your Father from heaven give the good Spirit to them that ask him?
For all these things do the nations of the world seek. But your Father knoweth
that you have need of these things.
I will arise, and will go to my father, and say to him: Father, I have sinned
against heaven, and before thee:
And I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a kingdom;
Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will,
but thine be done.
And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. But they,
dividing his garments, cast lots.
And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said: Father, into thy hands I commend my
spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost.
And I send the promise of my Father upon you: but stay you in the city till you
be endued with power from on high.
The Father loveth the Son: and he hath given all things into his hand.
Jesus saith to her: Woman, believe me, that the hour cometh, when you shall
neither on this mountain, not in Jerusalem, adore the Father.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in
spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeketh such to adore him.
But Jesus answered them: My Father worketh until now; and I work.
Hereupon therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he did not only
break the sabbath, but also said God was his Father, making himself equal to God.
Then Jesus answered, and said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you, the Son cannot
do any thing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he
doth, these the Son also doth in like manner.
For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things which himself doth: and
greater works than these will he shew him, that you may wonder.
For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and giveth life: so the Son also giveth
life to whom he will.
For neither doth the Father judge any man, but hath given all judgment to the
That all men may honour the Son, as they honour the Father. He who honoureth not
the Son, honoureth not the Father, who hath sent him.
For as the Father hath life in himself, so he hath given the Son also to have
life in himself:
But I have a greater testimony than that of John: for the works which the Father
hath given me to perfect; the works themselves, which I do, give testimony of me, that the
Father hath sent me.
And the Father himself who hath sent me, hath given testimony of me: neither have
you heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Think not that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one that accuseth you,
Moses, in whom you trust.
Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that which endureth unto life
everlasting, which the Son of man will give you. For him hath God, the Father, sealed.
Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say to you; Moses gave you not bread from
heaven, but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
All that the Father giveth to me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I
will not cast out.
And this is the will of my Father that sent me: that every one who seeth the Son,
and believeth in him, may have life everlasting, and I will raise him up in the last day.
No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him; and I will
raise him up in the last day.
It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one
that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, cometh to me.
Not that any man hath seen the Father; but he who is of God, he hath seen the
John 6:57 DR58
As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that eateth
me, the same also shall live by me.
John 6:65 DR66
And he said: Therefore did I say to you, that no man can come to me, unless it be
given him by my Father.
And if I do judge, my judgment is true: because I am not alone, but I and the
Father that sent me.
I am one that give testimony of myself: and the Father that sent me giveth
testimony of me.
They said therefore to him: Where is thy Father? Jesus answered: Neither me do
you know, nor my Father: if you did know me, perhaps you would know my Father also.
And they understood not, that he called God his Father.
Jesus therefore said to them: When you shall have lifted up the Son of man, then
shall you know, that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father hath
taught me, these things I speak:

glorifieth me, of whom you say that he is your God.

lay it down: and I have power to take it up again. This commandment have I received of my
That which my Father hath given me, is greater than all: and no one can snatch
them out of the hand of my Father.
I and the Father are one.
Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which
of these works do you stone me?
Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world: Thou
blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God?
If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know
and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.
They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up his eyes said: Father, I
give thee thanks that thou hast heard me.
If any man minister to me, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my
minister be. If any man minister to me, him will my Father honour.
Father, glorify thy name. A voice therefore came from heaven: I have both
glorified it, and will glorify it again.
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, he gave me
commandment what I should say, and what I should speak.
And I know that his commandment is life everlasting. The things therefore that I
speak, even as the Father said unto me, so do I speak.
Before the festival day of the pasch, Jesus knowing that his hour was come, that
he should pass out of this world to the Father: having loved his own who were in the
world, he loved them unto the end.

from God, and goeth to God;
Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to
the Father, but by me.

henceforth you shall know him, and you have seen him.
Philip saith to him: Lord, shew us the Father, and it is enough for us.
Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you; and have you not known
me? Philip, he that seeth me seeth the Father also. How sayest thou, Shew us the Father?
Do you not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that
I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the
Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen I say to you, he that
believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he
Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name,
that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Paraclete, that he may
abide with you for ever.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them; he it is that loveth me. And he

Jesus answered, and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my
Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him.
He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words. And the word which you have heard,
is not mine; but the Father's who sent me.

teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to
You have heard that I said to you: I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved

I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth.
But I have called you friends: because all things whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I
have made known to you.
You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you
should go, and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you
shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
