John 5:24–47

24 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and abelieves Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and bdoes not come into judgment, but has cpassed out of death into life.

Two Resurrections

25 Truly, truly, I say to you, aan hour is coming and now is, when bthe dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who chear will live.

26 For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He agave to the Son also to have life in Himself;

27 and He gave Him authority to aexecute judgment, because He is 1the Son of Man.

28 Do not marvel at this; for aan hour is coming, in which ball who are in the tombs will hear His voice,

29 and will come forth; athose who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.

30 aI can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and bMy judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but cthe will of Him who sent Me.

31 aIf I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not 1true.

32 There is aanother who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true.

Witness of John

33 You have sent to John, and he ahas testified to the truth.

34 But athe testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.

35 He was athe lamp that was burning and was shining and you bwere willing to rejoice for 1a while in his light.

Witness of Works

36 But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for athe works which the Father has given Me bto accomplishthe very works that I dotestify about Me, that the Father chas sent Me.

Witness of the Father

37 And the Father who sent Me, aHe has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.

38 You do not have aHis word abiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He bsent.

Witness of the Scripture

39 1aYou search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is bthese that testify about Me;

40 and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.

41 aI do not receive glory from men;

42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.

43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; aif another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

44 How can you believe, when you areceive 1glory from one another and you do not seek bthe 1glory that is from cthe one and only God?

45 Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is aMoses, in whom you have set your hope.

46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for ahe wrote about Me.

47 But aif you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
