Jesus answered, 1"If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. 2It is my Father who glorifies me, 3of whom you say, 'He is our God.'a55But 4you have not known him. 5I know him. If I were to say that I do not know him, I would be 6a liar 7like you, but I do know him and I keep his word.568Your father Abraham 9rejoiced 10that he would see my day. 11He saw it and was glad."57
So the Jews said to him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?"b58
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, 12I am."59
So 13they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
