25"Truly, truly, I say to you, 1an hour is coming and now is, when2the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who 3hear will live.26"For just as the Fatherhaslife in Himself, evenso He 4gave to the Sonalso to havelife in Himself ;27and He gave Him authority to 5executejudgment, because He is athe Son of Man.28"Do not marvel at this ; for 6an hour is coming, in which7allwho are in the tombs will hear His voice,29and will comeforth ; 8those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.30"9I candonothing on My owninitiative. As I hear, I judge ; and 10My judgment is just, because I do not seek My ownwill, but 11the will of Him who sent Me.31"12If I alone testifyaboutMyself, My testimony is not btrue.32"There is 13another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimonywhich He givesabout Me is true.
33"You have sent to John, and he 14has testified to the truth.34"But 15the testimony which I receive is not from man, but I saythesethingsso that you may be saved.35"He was 16the lamp that was burning and was shining and you 17were willing to rejoice for ca while in his light.
36"But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John ; for 18the workswhich the Father has given Me 19to accomplish -the veryworks that I do-testifyabout Me, that the Father20has sent Me.
37"And the Father who sent Me, 21He has testified of Me. You have neitherheard His voice at anytimenorseen His form.38"You do not have22His wordabiding in you, for you do not believe Him whom He 23sent.
39"d24You search the Scripturesbecause you think that in them you haveeternallife ; it is 25these that testifyabout Me;40and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may havelife.41"26I do not receiveglory from men ;42but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.43"I have come in My Father'sname, and you do not receive Me; 27ifanothercomes in his ownname, you will receive him.44"Howcan you believe, when you 28receiveeglory from oneanother and you do not seek29the fglory that is from 30the one and onlyGod ?45"Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father ; the one who accuses you is 31Moses, in whom you have set your hope.46"For if you believedMoses, you would believe Me, for 32he wroteabout Me.47"But 33if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words ?"
