Jesus said to them, "My Father1 is always at his work2 to this very day, and I, too, am working."
For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him;3 not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.4
Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself;5 he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
