John 1:12; John 5:27; John 10:18; John 17:2; John 19:10-11
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.
"No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father."
even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.
So Pilate said to Him, "You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?"
Jesus answered, "You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin."
