Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:50 - Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:51 - He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:52 - and not for the nation only, but also to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:53 - So from that day on they made plans to put him to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:54 - Jesus therefore no longer walked openly among the Jews, but went from there to the region near the wilderness, to a town called Ephraim, and there he stayed with the disciples.
