Then He said again to them, "I go away, and 1you will seek Me, and 2will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come."
So 3the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not kill Himself, will He, since He says, '4Where I am going, you cannot come '?"
And He was saying to them, "5You are from below, I am from above; 6you are of this world, 7I am not of this world.
"Therefore I said to you that you 8will die in your sins; for unless you believe that 9I am He, 10you 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 11He who sent Me is true; and 12the 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 13lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that 14I am He, and 15I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.
"And He who sent Me is with Me; 16He has not left Me alone, for 17I always do the things that are pleasing to Him."
