Jesus Foretells His Death

27 "1Now My soul has become troubled ; and what shall I say, '2Father, save Me from 3this hour '? But for this purpose I came to this hour. 28 "4Father, glorify Your name." Then a 5voice came out of heaven : "I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." 29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered ; others were saying, "6An angel has spoken to Him." 30 Jesus answered and said, "7This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. 31 "8Now judgment is upon this world ; now 9the ruler of this world will be cast out. 32 "And I, if I 10am lifted up from the earth, will 11draw all men to Myself." 33 But He was saying this 12to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die. 34 The crowd then answered Him, "We have heard out of 13the Law that a14the Christ is to remain forever ; and how can You say, 'The 15Son of Man must be 16lifted up'? Who is this 17Son of Man ?" 35 So Jesus said to them, "18For a little while longer 19the Light is among you. 20Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who 21walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. 36 "While you have the Light, 22believe in the Light, so that you may become 23sons of Light." These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and b24hid Himself from them. 37 But though He had performed so many csigns before them, yet they were not believing in Him. 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke : "25LORD, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT ? AND TO WHOM HAS THE ARM OF THE LORD BEEN REVEALED ?" 39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, 40 "26HE HAS BLINDED THEIR EYES AND HE 27HARDENED THEIR HEART, SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES AND PERCEIVE WITH THEIR HEART, AND dBE CONVERTED AND I HEAL THEM" 41 These things Isaiah said because 28he saw His glory, and 29he spoke of Him. 42 Nevertheless 30many even of 31the rulers believed in Him, but 32because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be e33put out of the synagogue ; 43 34for they loved the fapproval of men rather than the gapproval of God. 44 And Jesus cried out and said, "35He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. 45 "36He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. 46 "37I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. 47 "If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for 38I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 "39He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; 40the word I spoke is what will judge him at 41the last day. 49 "42For I did not speak hon My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me 43has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. 50 "I know that 44His commandment is eternal life ; therefore the things I speak, I speak 45just as the Father has told Me."
