Testimonies About Jesus
31“If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true.
32There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is true.
33“You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth.
34Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved.
35John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
36“I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish—the very works that I am doing—testify that the Father has sent me.
37And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,
38nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.
39You study Or 39 Study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,
40yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
41“I do not accept glory from human beings,
42but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.
43I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.
44How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God Some early manuscripts the Only One ?
45“But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.
46If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.
47But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?”
