Chapter 1 Correspondence with Jesus

Abgarus' first letter to the Lord

1. Abgarus, toparch in Edessa, to Jesus, the good Saviour, Who has appeared in the land around Jerusalem, all hail.

2. I have heard of You and Your healing power, how You perform it without medicines and herbs. For the saying goes that You make the blind see and that the lame walk; that You clean the lepers, and cast out the impure spirits, and heal those, that fight with lingering diseases, and finally even raise the dead.

3. After I heard all these things about You, I concluded for myself, one of two things had to be true, either You are God, descent from heaven; or You, who doest these things, are at least a Son of the great God!

4. I therefore request You through this letter, to take the trouble to come to me, and heal the illness that I have!

5. I also heard that the Jews murmur against You and plot evil against You. I however have a small, but well ordered city, which will be sufficient for both of us; therefore come to me, You my most esteemed friend Jesus, and stay with me in my city and in my country; there You will be carried by everybody on hands and in the heart.

6. I expect You with greatest longing in my heart! - Sent through my most faithful servant Brachus.
