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.”
