"I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me1 has eternal life2 and will not be condemned;3 he has crossed over from death to life.4
I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come5 when the dead will hear6 the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.
For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life7 in himself.
And he has given him authority to judge8 because he is the Son of Man.
"Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming9 when all who are in their graves will hear his voice
and come out--those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.10
