I can guarantee this truth: Those who listen to what I say and believe in the one who sent me will have eternal life. They won't be judged because they have already passed from death to life.
"I can guarantee this truth: A time is coming (and is now here) when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who respond to it will live.
The Father is the source of life, and he has enabled the Son to be the source of life too.
"He has also given the Son authority to pass judgment because he is the Son of Man.
Don't be surprised at what I've just said. A time is coming when all the dead will hear his voice,
and they will come out of their tombs. Those who have done good will come back to life and live. But those who have done evil will come back to life and will be judged.
I can't do anything on my own. As I listen [to the Father], I make my judgments. My judgments are right because I don't try to do what I want but what the one who sent me wants.
"If I testify on my own behalf, what I say isn't true.
Someone else testifies on my behalf, and I know that what he says about me is true.
You sent people to John [the Baptizer], and he testified to the truth.
