John 5:39–6:4

39 You pore over the Scripturesae because you think you have eternal life in them, and yet they testify about me.af 40 But you are not willingag to come to meah so that you may have life.

41 I do not accept gloryai from people, 42 but I know youthat you have no love for Godaj within you. 43 I have come in my Father’s name,ak and yet you don’t accept me.al If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. 44 How can you believe, since you accept glory from one another but don’t seek the glory that comes from the onlyam God?an 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. Your accuser is Moses,ao on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me, because he wrote about me. 47 But if you don’t believe what he wrote,ap how will you believe my words?”aq
