12ThenJesusagainspoke to them, saying, "1I am the Light of the world; 2he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."13So the Phariseessaid to Him, "3You are testifyingaboutYourself; Your testimony is not atrue."
14Jesusanswered and said to them, "4Evenif I testifyaboutMyself, My testimony is btrue, for I know5where I came from and where I am going; but 6you do not knowwhere I come from orwhere I am going.15"7You judgecaccording to the flesh; 8I am not judginganyone.16"But even9if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me.17"Even in 10your law it has been written that the testimony of 11twomen is dtrue.18"I am He who testifiesaboutMyself, and 12the Father who sent Me testifiesabout Me."19So they were saying to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesusanswered, "You knowneither Me nor My Father; 13if you knew Me, you would know My Fatheralso."20Thesewords He spoke in 14the treasury, as 15He taught in the temple; and nooneseized Him, because16His hour had not yetcome.
21Then He saidagain to them, "I goaway, and 17you will seek Me, and 18will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannotcome."22So19the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not killHimself, will He, since He says, '20Where I am going, you cannotcome '?"
And He was saying to them, "21You are from below, I am from above; 22you are of thisworld, 23I am not of thisworld.24"Therefore I said to you that you 24will die in your sins; for unless you believe that e25I am He, 26you will die in your sins."25So they were saying to Him, "Who are You?" Jesussaid to them, "fWhat have I been saying to you from the beginning?26"I havemanythings to speak and to judgeconcerning you, but 27He who sent Me is true; and 28the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world."27
They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father.
28SoJesussaid, "When you 29lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that g30I am He, and 31I donothing on My owninitiative, but I speakthesethings as the Fathertaught Me.29"And He who sent Me is with Me; 32He hhas not left Me alone, for 33I alwaysdo the things that are pleasing to Him."30
As He spokethesethings, 34many came to believe in Him.
