1 After these things there was aa feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
3 In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [1waiting for the moving of the waters;
4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.]
5 A man was there who had been 1ill for thirty-eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He * said to him, “Do you wish to get well?”
7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when athe water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”
aNow it was the Sabbath on that day.
15 The man went away, and told athe Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
16 For this reason athe Jews were persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.
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.
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.
26 “For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He agave to the Son also to have life in Himself;
29 and will come forth; athose who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
32 “There is aanother who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true.
33 “You have sent to John, and he ahas testified to the truth.
34 “But athe testimony which I receive is not from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.
36 “But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for athe works which the Father has given Me bto accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father chas sent Me.
37 “And the Father who sent Me, aHe has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form.
41 “aI do not receive glory from men;
43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; aif another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
45 “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is aMoses, in whom you have set your hope.
46 “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for ahe wrote about Me.
47 “But aif you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
