He must become greater; I must become less.
"The one who comes from above1 is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth.2 The one who comes from heaven is above all.
He testifies to what he has seen and heard,3 but no one accepts his testimony.433
The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful.
For the one whom God has sent5 speaks the words of God, for Goda gives the Spirit6 without limit.
The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands.736
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life,8 but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him."b
