John 12:38; John 12:40; John 12:49 (New International Version)
This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
"He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn--and I would heal them."
For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it.
