This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these.
"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.
Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
Jesus' brothers said to him, "You ought to leave here and go to Judea, so that your disciples may see the miracles you do.
The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil.
Jesus said to them, "I did one miracle, and you are all astonished.
"Abraham is our father," they answered. "If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do the things Abraham did.
You are doing the things your own father does." "We are not illegitimate children," they protested. "The only Father we have is God himself."
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," said Jesus, "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.
As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.
Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me,
but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"
"We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."
Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does.
But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.
I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
