Aramaic Bible in Plain English
 

1“Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God and believe in me.” 2“There are many lodgings in my Father's house, and if not, I would have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you.” 3“And if I go prepare a place for you, I shall come again and bring you to join me, that where I am you shall be also.” 4“And where I am going, you know, and you know the way.” 5Thoma said to him, “Our Lord, we do not know where you are going and how can we know the way?” 6Yeshua said to him, “I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Way and The Truth and The Life; no man comes to my Father but by me alone.”

7“If you had known me, you also would have known my Father, and from this hour you do know him and you have seen him.”

8Philippus said to him, “Our Lord, show us The Father, and it is sufficient for us.” 9Yeshua said to him, “All this time I am with you and you have not known me Phillip? Whoever has seen me has seen The Father, and how do you say, 'Show us The Father'?” 10“Do you not believe that I am in my Father and my Father in me? The words which I am speaking, I am not speaking from myself, but my Father who dwells within me, he does these works.” 11“Believe that I am in my Father and my Father in me, otherwise believe because of the works.” 12“Timeless truth, I tell you: 'whoever believes in me, those works which I have done he will also do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the presence of my Father.' “ 13“And anything that you will ask in my name I shall do for you, that The Father may be glorified in his Son.” 14“And if you will ask me in my name, I shall do this.”

15“If you love me, keep my commandments.”

16“And I shall request from my Father and he will give you another Redeemer of the accursed, that he will be with you for eternity.” 17“He is The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it has neither seen him nor known him; but you know him, for he dwells with you and he is in you.”

18“I shall not leave you as orphans, for I shall come to you in a little while.” 19“And the world will not see me, but you shall see me; because I live, you also shall live.” 20At that day, you will know that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you.” 21“Whoever has my commands and keeps them, he does love me, but he who loves me shall be loved from my Father and I shall love him, and I shall show myself to him.” 22Yehuda said to him (he was not Scariota), “My Lord, how is it you are going to show yourself to us and not the same to the world?” 23Yeshua answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me keeps my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and we will make our lodging with him.” 24“But he who does not love me does not keep my word, and this word which you are hearing is not mine, but The Father's who has sent me.”

25“I have spoken these things with you while I am with you.” 26“But he, The Redeemer of the accursed, The Spirit of Holiness, whom my Father sends in my name, he will teach you all things and he will remind you of everything whatsoever I have told you.” 27“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. It is not as the world gives that I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not let it be afraid.” 28“You have heard that I said to you, 'I am going away, and I am coming to you'; if you had loved me, you would have rejoiced that I am going to join my Father, for my Father is greater than I.” 29“And now, behold, I have told you before it happens, that when it has happened, you may believe.” 30“After this I will not be speaking much with you, for The Prince of the world is coming and he has nothing to use against me. 31But that the world may know that I love my Father, and just as my Father has taught me, so I have done. Rise up, let us depart from here.”
