John 5

1 The feast of the Jews was after these things, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now there is a pool in Jerusalem by the sheep gate called* Bethesda in Hebrew, having five porches. 3 A large multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, dried up, were reclining in this area waiting for the moving of the water. 4 For* a messenger was going down every opportunity in the pool, and was disturbing the water. Therefore, the first one who stepped after the disturbance of the water became healthy, from whatever disease in which the one was being held.

5 Now a certain man was there, who was held in sickness for thirty eight years. 6 When* Jesus saw him reclining and having known that he had spent much time already there, he says to him, Do you wish to become healthy? 7 The sick man answered him, Lord, I do not have a man, in order that he might put me in the pool whenever the water is disturbed. But while* I am coming, another is going down before me. 8 Jesus says to him, Arise, lift up your, your* pallet and walk. 9 And immediately the man became healthy, and lifted up his pallet and was walking.

Now it was the Sabbath on that day. 10 So the Jews were saying to the one who had been healed, It is the Sabbath. It is not legal for you to lift up your, your* pallet.

11 He answered them, He who made* me healthy, that man said to me, Lift up your, your* pallet and walk.

12 Therefore they asked him, Who is the man who said to you, Lift up your, your* pallet and walk? 13 But he who was healed did not know who it was; for* Jesus had slipped out of the crowd that was in that place.

14 After these things, Jesus finds him in the temple and said to him, Behold, you have become healthy. Sin no longer, in order that something worse might not happen to you. 15 The man went away and proclaimed to the Jews that it was Jesus who had made* him healthy. 16 And the Jews were persecuting Jesus because of this, and were seeking to kill him, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath.

17 But Jesus answered them, My Father is working until now, and I am working. 18 Therefore the Jews were seeking even more to kill him because of this, because he was not only tearing, down the Sabbath, but also that he was saying God is his own Father, making* himself equal to God.

19 Therefore, Jesus answered and said to them, Assuredly, assuredly, I am saying to you*, The Son is not able to do anything from himself, if he does not see what the Father is doing; for* whatever things which he does, the Son is also doing these things likewise. 20 For* the Father loves the Son, and shows to him all things which he is doing, and he will be showing him greater works than these things in order that you* may marvel. 21 For* just, like the Father raises up the dead and is giving, life to them, so the Son also is giving, life to whom he wills. 22 For* the Father is judging no one, but has given all judgment to the Son; 23 in order that all may honor the Son, just, as they are honoring the Father. He who is not honoring the Son, is not honoring the Father who sent him.

24 Assuredly, assuredly, I am saying to you*, He who hears my word and believes in the one who sent me, has everlasting life, and is not coming into judgment, but has stepped out of death into the life.

25 Assuredly, assuredly, I am saying to you*, The hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26 For* just, like the Father has life in himself, so he also gave to the Son, to have life in himself, 27 and he also gave authority to him to make* judgment, because he is a son of man. 28 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs will be hearing his voice, 29 and will travel out; those who have practiced good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.

30 I am able to do nothing of myself. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I am not seeking my own will, but the will of the Father who sent me. 31 If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true. 32 It is another who is testifying concerning me, and I know that the testimony which he is testifying concerning me is true. 33 You* have sent people to John, and he has testified to the truth. 34 But the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I am saying these things, in order that you* might save yourselves. 35 He was that lamp which burns and appears bright, and you* were willing to be glad for a season in his light. 36 But the testimony which I have is greater than John' s; for* the works which the Father gave to me, in order that I should complete, these same works which I am doing, testify concerning me, that the Father has sent me. 37 And the Father who sent me, he has testified concerning me. You* have neither heard his voice at anytime, nor have seen his form. 38 And you* do not have his word remaining in you*, because you* do not believe in that man whom he sent for this. 39 You* are searching the Scriptures because you* think that in them you* have everlasting life, and these are those which are testifying concerning me; 40 and you* are not willing to come to me, in order that you* may have life.

41 I am not receiving glory from men. 42 But I know you*, that you* do not have the love* of God in yourselves. 43 I have come in the name of my Father, and you* are not receiving me. If another comes in his own name, you* will be receiving that man. 44 How are you* able to believe, receiving glory from one another, and yet you* are not seeking the glory that comes from the God alone? 45 Do not think that I will be accusing you* to the Father. There is one who is accusing you*, Moses, in whom you* have hoped. 46 For* if you* believed in Moses, you* would believe in me; for* that man wrote concerning me. 47 But if you* do not believe the Scriptures of that man, how will you* believe my declarations?
