1 Jesus heals on the sabbath
1 After Lev. 23:2;Deut. 16:1;ch. 2:13this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?'
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Mat. 9:6;Mark 2:11;Luke 5:24Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.'
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and ch. 9:14on the same day was the sabbath.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: Ex. 20:10;Neh. 13:19;Jer. 17:21;Mat. 12:2;Mark 2:24;Luke 6:2it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.'
12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?'
14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: Mat. 12:45;ch. 8:11sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.'
15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
16 The Son's witness to the Father
16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
17 But Jesus answered them, ch. 9:4;& 14:10My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.'
18 Therefore the Jews ch. 7:19sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, ch. 10:30;Phil. 2:6making himself equal with God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, ver. 30;ch. 8:28;& 9:4The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.'
20 For Mat. 3:17;ch. 3:35the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.'
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; Luke 7:14;& 8:54;ch. 11:25even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.'
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but Mat. 11:27;& 28:18;ch. 3:35;& 17:2;Acts 17:31;1 Pet. 4:5hath committed all judgment unto the Son:'
23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. 1 John 2:23He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.'
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, ch. 3:16,18;& 6:40,47;& 8:51He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; 1 John 3:14but is passed from death unto life.'
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when Eph. 2:1,5;& 5:14;Col 2:13the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.'
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;'
27 And Acts 10:42;& 17:31hath given him authority to execute judgment also, Dan. 7:13because he is the Son of man.'
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,'
29 Is. 26:19;1 Cor. 15:52And shall come forth; Dan. 12:2;Mat. 25:32,33,46they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.'
30 The Father's witness to the Son
30 ver. 19I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because Mat. 26:39;ch. 4:34;& 6:38I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.'
31 ch. 8:14;Rev. 3:14If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.'
32 Mat. 3:17;& 17:5;ch. 8:18;1 John 5:6There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.'
33 Ye sent unto John, ch. 1:15,19,27,32and he bare witness unto the truth.'
34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.'
35 He was a burning and 2 Pet. 1:19a shining light: and Mat. 13:20;Mark 6:20ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.'
36 But 1 John 5:9I have greater witness than that of John: for ch. 3:2;& 10:25;& 15:24the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.'
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, Mat. 3:17;& 17:5;ch. 6:27;& 8:18hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, Deut. 4:12;ch. 1:18;1 Tim. 1:17;1 John 4:12nor seen his shape.'
38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.'
39 ver. 46;Is. 8:20;& 34:16;Luke 16:29;Acts 17:11Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and Deut. 18:15,18;Luke 24:27they are they which testify of me.'
40 ch. 1:11;& 3:19And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.'
41 ver. 34;1 Thes. 2:6I receive not honour from men.'
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.'
43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.'
44 ch. 12:43How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not Rom. 2:29the honour that cometh from God only?'
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: Rom. 2:12there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.'
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: Gen. 3:15;& 12:3;& 18:18;& 22:18;& 49:10;Deut. 18:15,18;ch. 1:45;Acts 26:22for he wrote of me.'
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?'
