Again the next day after John stood, and 35 two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as 36 he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

and drives the traders out of the temple. J. 2.
* And the Jews' passover was at hand, and A. D. 30. Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and found in the Ex.12.14 temple those that sold oxen and sheep and

therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto 3. 16. them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did,
