17 But He answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.”
Jesus’ Equality with God
18 For this reason therefore athe Jews bwere seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, cmaking Himself equal with God.
19 Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, athe Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever 1the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.
20 “aFor the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him bgreater works than these, so that you will marvel.
21 “For just as the Father raises the dead and agives them life, even so bthe Son also gives life to whom He wishes.
22 “For not even the Father judges anyone, but aHe has given all judgment to the Son,
23 so that all will honor the Son even as they honor the Father. aHe who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
