20 Now there were some Greeksc among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaidad in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.
23 Jesus replied, “The houre has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.f 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies,g it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep ith for eternal life.i 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be.j My Father will honor the one who serves me.
Then a voice came from heaven,n “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit,o not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world;p now the prince of this worldq will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted upg from the earth,r will draw all people to myself.”s 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.t
The Greek for lifted up also means exalted.
