And the Passover and unleavened bread were two days away.
And the high priests and the scholars were seeking
how by arresting him deceitfully they might kill him.
For they said, "Not at the feast,
lest there be a disturbance of the people."
Mark 14:1-2

And it happened that when Jesus finished these words,
he said to his disciples,
"You know that after two days the Passover occurs,
and the human son is given over to be crucified."

Then the high priests and the elders of the people
gathered in the court of the high priest called Caiaphas,
and they plotted so that by deceit
they might arrest and kill Jesus;
but they said, "Not at the feast,
lest a disturbance occurs among the people."
Matthew 26:1-5

And the feast of unleavened bread
called Passover was drawing near.
And the high priests and the scholars
were seeking how they might destroy him;
for they feared the people.
Luke 22:1-2

Some of those going up
so that they might worship at the feast were Greeks;
therefore these approached Philip,
the one from Bethsaida of Galilee,
and asked him saying, "Lord, we wish to see Jesus."
Philip goes and tells Andrew;
Andrew and Philip go and tell Jesus.

And Jesus answers them saying, "The hour has come
so that the human son may be glorified.
Amen, amen, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat
falling into the earth dies, it remains alone;
but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

"Whoever loves one's life loses it,
and whoever hates one's life in this world
will preserve it for eternal life.
If anyone serves me, let him follow me,
and where I am;, there also my servant will be;
if anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

"Now my life has been troubled, and what should I say?
Father, save me from this hour.
But for this reason I came to this hour.
Father, glorify your name."

So a voice came out of heaven:
"I both glorified it and I will glorify it again."

So the crowd standing and hearing said thunder had occurred;
others said, "An angel has spoken to him."

Jesus answered and said,
"Not because of me has this voice occurred but because of you.
Now is the judgment of this world;
now the ruler of this world will be thrown out;
and if I am lifted from the earth,
I will draw everyone to myself."

And he said this signifying what death he was about to die.
Therefore the crowd answered him,
"We heard from the law that the Christ remains forever,
and how is it you say that the human son must be lifted up?
Who is this human son?"

So Jesus said to them,
"For a short time longer the light is among you.
Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you;
and whoever walks in the dark
does not know where he is going.
While you have the light, believe in the light,
so that you may become sons of light."
Jesus spoke these things,
and going away he was hidden from them.
John 12:20-36

Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?'
say to them, 'We have come from the light,
where the light has originated through itself.
It revealed itself in their image.'

"If they say to you, 'Who are you?'
say, 'We are his sons,
and we are the elect of the living Father.'

"If they ask you,
'What is the sign of your Father within you?'
say to them, 'It is a movement and a rest.'"
Thomas 50

Jesus said, "The images appear to people,
and the light which is within them is hidden
in the image of the light of the Father.
He will manifest himself,
and his image is concealed by his light."
Thomas 83

Jesus said, "When you see your appearance, you rejoice;
but when you see your images which originated before you,
which neither die nor appear,
how much will you endure."
Thomas 84

And as many miracles as he had performed before them,
they still did not believe in him,
so that the word of Isaiah the prophet
might be fulfilled which said,

Lord, who has believed our report?
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

For this reason they could not believe, for again Isaiah said,

He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart,
lest they should see with their eyes
and understand with their heart
and turn, and I would cure them.

These things Isaiah said because he saw his glory,
and he spoke about him.

Nevertheless even many of the rulers believed in him,
but because of the Pharisees they did not admit it,
lest they be put out of the synagogue;
for they loved human glory more than the glory of God.

And Jesus shouted and said, "Whoever believes in me
does not believe in me but in the one who sent me,
and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.
I have come as light into the world,
so that everyone who believes in me
may not remain in the dark.

"And if anyone hears my sayings and does not keep them,
I do not judge him;
for I did not come so that I might judge the world,
but so that I might save the world.
Whoever rejects me and does not accept my sayings
has judging one the word which I have spoken;
that will judge one on the last day.

"For I have not spoken from myself,
but the Father who sent me he has given me commands
what I should say and what I should speak.
And I know that his command is eternal life.
Therefore what I speak is just as the Father has said to me;
thus I speak."
John 12:37-50
