Then Jesus again spoke 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."
So the Pharisees said to Him, "3You are testifying about Yourself; Your testimony is not true."
Jesus answered and said to them, "4Even if I testify about Myself, My testimony is true, for I know 5where I came from and where I am going; but 6you do not know where I come from or where I am going.
"7You judge according to the flesh; 8I am not judging anyone.
"But even 9if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me.
"Even in 10your law it has been written that the testimony of 11two men is true.
"I am He who testifies about Myself, and 12the Father who sent Me testifies about Me."
So they were saying to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father; 13if you knew Me, you would know My Father also."
These words He spoke in 14the treasury, as 15He taught in the temple; and no one seized Him, because 16His hour had not yet come.
Then He said again to them, "I go away, and 17you will seek Me, and 18will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come."
So 19the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not kill Himself, will He, since He says, '20Where I am going, you cannot come '?"
And He was saying to them, "21You are from below, I am from above; 22you are of this world, 23I am not of this world.
"Therefore I said to you that you 24will die in your sins; for unless you believe that 25I am He, 26you will die in your sins."
So they were saying to Him, "Who are You?" Jesus said to them, "What have I been saying to you from the beginning?
"I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but 27He who sent Me is true; and 28the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world."
They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father.
So Jesus said, "When you 29lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that 30I am He, and 31I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.
"And He who sent Me is with Me; 32He has not left Me alone, for 33I always do the things that are pleasing to Him."
As He spoke these things, 34many came to believe in Him.
