11I assure you that we speak about what we know and testify about what we have seen, but you don't receive our testimony. 12If I have told you about earthly things and you don't believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Human One.a14Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so must the Human Oneb be lifted up 15so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. 16God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won't perish but will have eternal life. 17God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him. 18Whoever believes in him isn't judged; whoever doesn't believe in him is already judged, because they don't believe in the name of God's only Son. 19
"This is the basis for judgment: The light came into the world, and people loved darkness more than the light, for their actions are evil.20All who do wicked things hate the light and don't come to the light for fear that their actions will be exposed to the light.21Whoever does the truth comes to the light so that it can be seen that their actions were done in God."
