I Am the Light of the World

12 1Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, 2"I am the light of the world. Whoever 3follows me will not 4walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." 13 So the Pharisees said to him, 5"You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true." 14 Jesus answered, "Even if I do bear witness about myself, 6my testimony is true, for I know 7where I came from and 8where I am going, but 9you do not know where I come from or where I am going. 15 10You judge according to the flesh; 11I judge no one. 16 Yet even if I do judge, 12my judgment is true, for 13it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Fathera who sent me. 17 14In your Law it is written that the testimony of two people is true. 18 I am the one who bears witness about myself, and 15the Father who sent me bears witness about me." 19 They said to him therefore, "Where is your Father?" Jesus answered, 16"You know neither me nor my Father. 17If you knew me, you would know my Father also." 20 These words he spoke in 18the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but 19no one arrested him, because 20his hour had not yet come. 21 So he said to them again, 21"I am going away, and 22you will seek me, and 23you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come." 22 So the Jews said, 24"Will he kill himself, since he says, 'Where I am going, you cannot come'?" 23 He said to them, 25"You are from below; I am from above. 26You are of this world; 27I am not of this world. 24 I told you that you 28would die in your sins, for 29unless you believe that 30I am he you will die in your sins." 25 So they said to him, 31"Who are you?" Jesus said to them, "Just what I have been telling you from the beginning. 26 I have much to say about you and much to judge, but 32he who sent me is true, and I declare 33to the world 34what I have heard from him." 27 They did not understand that 35he had been speaking to them about the Father. 28 So Jesus said to them, "When you have 36lifted up the Son of Man, 37then you will know that 38I am he, and that 39I do nothing on my own authority, but 40speak just as the Father taught me. 29 And 41he who sent me is with me. 42He has not left me alone, for 43I always do the things that are pleasing to him." 30 As he was saying these things, 44many believed in him.
