"I tell you the truth, whoever hears what I say and believes in the One who sent me has eternal life. That person will not be judged guilty but has already left death and entered life.
I tell you the truth, the time is coming and is already here when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will have life.
Life comes from the Father himself, and he has allowed the Son to have life in himself as well.
And the Father has given the Son the power to judge, because he is the Son of Man.
Don't be surprised at this: A time is coming when all who are dead and in their graves will hear his voice.

"I can do nothing alone. I judge only the way I am told, so my judgment is fair. I don't try to please myself, but I try to please the One who sent me.
"If only I tell people about myself, what I say is not true.
But there is another who tells about me, and I know that the things he says about me are true.
