Then all people will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Those who do not honor the Son do not honor the Father, who sent him.
"What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He will not be found guilty. He has crossed over from death to life.
"What I'm about to tell you is true. A time is coming for me to give life. In fact, it has already begun. The dead will hear the voice of the Son of God. Those who hear it will live.
"The Father has life in himself. He has also allowed the Son to have life in himself.
And the Father has given him the authority to judge. This is because he is the Son of Man.
"Do not be amazed at this. A time is coming when all who are in the grave will hear his voice.
They will all come out of their graves. Those who have done good will rise and live again. Those who have done evil will rise and be found guilty.
"I can do nothing by myself. I judge only as I hear. And my judging is fair. I do not try to please myself. I try only to please the One who sent me.
"If I give witness about myself, it doesn't count.
There is someone else who gives witness in my favor. And I know that his witness about me counts.
"You have sent people to John. He has given witness to the truth.
