"You have sent to John and he has testified1 to the truth.
Not that I accept human testimony;2 but I mention it that you may be saved.3
John was a lamp that burned and gave light,4 and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
"I have testimony weightier than that of John.5 For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing,6 testifies that the Father has sent me.7
