Whoever doesn't honor the Son doesn't honor the Father who sent him. 24“I assure you that whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and won't come under judgment but has passed from death into life. 25“I assure you that the time is coming—and is here!—when the dead will hear the voice of God's Son, and those who hear it will live. 26Just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. 27He gives the Son authority to judge, because he is the Human One.a28Don't be surprised by this, because the time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice. 29Those who did good things will come out into the resurrection of life, and those who did wicked things into the resurrection of judgment. 30I can't do anything by myself. Whatever I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just. I don't seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me.
31“If I testify about myself, my testimony isn't true. 32There is someone else who testifies about me, and I know his testimony about me is true. 33You sent a delegation to John, and he testified to the truth.
