Jesus Predicts His Death

20 Now there were some Greeksc among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaidad in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

23 Jesus replied, “The houre has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.f 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies,g it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep ith for eternal life.i 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be.j My Father will honor the one who serves me.

27 “Now my soul is troubled,k and what shall I say? ‘Father,l save me from this hour’?m No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name!”

Then a voice came from heaven,n “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.

30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit,o not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world;p now the prince of this worldq will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted upg from the earth,r will draw all people to myself.”s 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.t

34 The crowd spoke up, “We have heard from the Lawu that the Messiah will remain forever,v so how can you say, ‘The Son of Manw must be lifted up’?x Who is this ‘Son of Man’?”

35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the lighty just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light,z before darkness overtakes you.a Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. 36 Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.”b When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.c
