21Then He saidagain to them, "I goaway, and 1you will seek Me, and 2will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannotcome."22So3the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not killHimself, will He, since He says, '4Where I am going, you cannotcome '?"
And He was saying to them, "5You are from below, I am from above; 6you are of thisworld, 7I am not of thisworld.24"Therefore I said to you that you 8will die in your sins; for unless you believe that a9I am He, 10you will die in your sins."25So they were saying to Him, "Who are You?" Jesussaid to them, "bWhat have I been saying to you from the beginning?26"I havemanythings to speak and to judgeconcerning you, but 11He who sent Me is true; and 12the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world."27
They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father.
28SoJesussaid, "When you 13lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that c14I am He, and 15I donothing on My owninitiative, but I speakthesethings as the Fathertaught Me.29"And He who sent Me is with Me; 16He dhas not left Me alone, for 17I alwaysdo the things that are pleasing to Him."
