22 Then came the Festival of Dedicationb at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade.m 24 The Jewsn who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”o
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you,p but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me,q 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.r 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them,s and they follow me.t 28 I give them eternal life,u and they shall never perish;v no one will snatch them out of my hand.w 29 My Father, who has given them to me,x is greater than allc;y no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”z
That is, Hanukkah
Many early manuscripts What my Father has given me is greater than all
