Notes: ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
IDEA~LIKE - a blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which is signed smoothly right afterwards.
HEAVENLY-FATHER - (2h)[A], FOs up, DH - held against forehead, NDH close to but lower, both hands open to (2h) while moving upwards. HEAVEN may be added to this. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Heavenly Father - 1.
PULL-rt - Pull on imaginary rope to your right.
The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
RAISE~(2h)HIM-rt~UP-TO-Heaven - (2h)[B], POs down, FOs > rt, lower slightly, supinate, and rise slightly + hands descend slighty to show the honorific index + hands are then fully lifted up to Heaven.
FLESH - Pinch cheek and pull it slightly side to side.
SECOND A-D-A-M - The concept is from the Hebrew "ben Adam" meaning the son of Adam. Adam can mean "man" but SON FROM MAN does not convey the concept that "[for] as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive."
INSIDE-SELF - The FT of [C] are held against the chest and stuff the FT of [O^] into the [C] twice.
RESURRECTION - [V], PO up, FO away, pronates and hops onto the palm of [B], PO up, FO away. For an animated gif of this sign, see Valley Bible Church - ASL dictionary: Resurrection.
SELF-ON-INDEX - [A], PO > signer, FO away, taps against , PO > DS, FO up.
MESSAGE - (2h)[F] interlink slightly as they separate and close twice.
PAH - Like SUCCEED but "pah" is mouthed and has the meaning of "at long last". For a QuickTime movie of this sign, see ASL browser - finally.
(2h)THIS - (2h)[1^], POs down, FOs away, hands descend slightly.
1. I am the bread of life.
Those who come to me shall not hunger.
Those who believe in me shall not thirst.
No one can come to me
Unless the Father draw them.
And I will raise him up, and I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.
2. The bread that I will give
Is my flesh for the life of the world
And those who eat of this bread
They shall life forever
They shall live forever.
3. Unless you eat
Of the flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of His blood,
and drink of His blood
You shall not have life within you.
4. I am the resurection.
I am the life.
If you believe in me,
Even though you die,
You shall live forever.
5. Yes, Lord, I believe
That you are the Christ,
The Son of God,
Who has come
Into the World.
1. Yo soy el pan de vida.
El que viene a mí no tendrá hambre.
El que cree en mí no tendrá sed.
Nadie viene a mí
mientaras el Padre llame.
2. El pan que yo daré
es mi cuerpo vida del mundo,
y el que coma de mi carne
tendrá vida eterna,
tendrá vida eterna.
3. Mientras no comas
el cuerpo del hijo del hombre,
y bebas de su sangre
y bebas de su sangre,
no tendrá vida en ti.
4. Yo soy la resurrección.
Yo soy la vida.
El que cree en mí,
tendrá vida eterna.
5. Sí, Señor, yo creo
que tú eres el Cristo,
El Hijo de Dios,
que vino al mundo
