And it was at Ierusalem ye feaste of the dedicacion and it was wynter:
and Iesus walked in Salomons porche.
Then came the Iewes rounde aboute him and sayde vnto him: How longe dost thou make vs doute? Yf thou be Christ tell vs playnly.
Iesus answered them: I tolde you and ye beleve not. The workes yt I do in my fathers name they beare witnes of me.
But ye beleve not because ye are not of my shepe. As I sayde vnto you:
my shepe heare my voyce and I knowe them and they folowe me
and I geve vnto the eternall lyfe and they shall never perisshe nether shall eny man plucke the oute of my honde.
My father which gave the me is greatter then all and no man is able to take them out of my fathers honde.
And I and my father are one.
Then the Iewes agayne toke up stones to stone him with all.
Iesus answered them: many good workes have I shewed you from my father: for which of them will ye stone me?
The Iewes answered him sayinge. For thy good workes sake we stone ye not: but for thy blasphemy and because that thou beinge a man makest thy selfe God.
Iesus answered them: Is it not written in youre lawe: I saye ye are goddes?
If he called the goddes vnto whom the worde of God was spoken (and the scripture can not be broken)
saye ye then to him whom the father hath sainctified and sent into the worlde thou blasphemest because I sayd I am the sonne of God?
If I do not the workes of my father beleve me not.
But if I do though ye beleve not me yet beleve the workes that ye maye knowe and beleve that the father is in me and I in him.
Agayne they went aboute to take him: but he escaped out of their hondes
and went awaye agayne beyonde Iordan into the place where Iohn before had baptised and there aboode.
And many resorted vnto him and sayd. Iohn dyd no miracle: but all thinges that Iohn spake of this man are true.
And many beleved on him theare.
