John 12:20-36

NLT 20 Some Greeks who had come to Jerusalem for the Passover celebration NIV 20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the Feast. NLT 21 paid a visit to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee. They said, “Sir, we want to meet Jesus.” NIV 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. "Sir," they said, "we would like to see Jesus." NLT 22 Philip told Andrew about it, and they went together to ask Jesus. NIV 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus. NLT 23 Jesus replied, “Now the time has come for the Son of Man to enter into his glory. NIV 23 Jesus replied, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. NLT 24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. NIV 24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. NLT 25 Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity. NIV 25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. NLT 26 Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me. NIV 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. NLT 27 “Now my soul is deeply troubled. Should I pray, ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But this is the very reason I came! NIV 27 "Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. NLT 28 Father, bring glory to your name.” Then a voice spoke from heaven, saying, “I have already brought glory to my name, and I will do so again.” NIV 28 Father, glorify your name!" Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and will glorify it again." NLT 29 When the crowd heard the voice, some thought it was thunder, while others declared an angel had spoken to him. NIV 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him. NLT 30 Then Jesus told them, “The voice was for your benefit, not mine. NIV 30 Jesus said, "This voice was for your benefit, not mine. NLT 31 The time for judging this world has come, when Satan, the ruler of this world, will be cast out. NIV 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. NLT 32 And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.” NIV 32 But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." NLT 33 He said this to indicate how he was going to die. NIV 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die. NLT 34 The crowd responded, “We understood from Scripture that the Messiah would live forever. How can you say the Son of Man will die? Just who is this Son of Man, anyway?” NIV 34 The crowd spoke up, "We have heard from the Law that the Christ will remain forever, so how can you say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this 'Son of Man'?" NLT 35 Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going. NIV 35 Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. NLT 36 Put your trust in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light.” After saying these things, Jesus went away and was hidden from them. NIV 36 Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.
