The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
Then He said again to them, "I go away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin; where I am going, you cannot come."
"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."
Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
"Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?
They answered him, "You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?" So they put him out.
Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but since you say, 'We see,' your sin remains.
"If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.
"If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well.
"And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;
concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me;
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."
"If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained."
