John 8:12-30

NAS 12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life." NIV 12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." NAS 13 So the Pharisees said to Him, "You are testifying about Yourself; Your testimony is not true." NIV 13 The Pharisees challenged him, "Here you are, appearing as your own witness; your testimony is not valid." NAS 14 Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I testify about Myself, My testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. NIV 14 Jesus answered, "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. NAS 15 "You judge according to the flesh; I am not judging anyone. NIV 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. NAS 16 "But even if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me. NIV 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. NAS 17 "Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true. NIV 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid. NAS 18 "I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me." NIV 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me." NAS 19 So they were saying to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father; if you knew Me, you would know My Father also." NIV 19 Then they asked him, "Where is your father?" "You do not know me or my Father," Jesus replied. "If you knew me, you would know my Father also." NAS 20 These words He spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one seized Him, because His hour had not yet come. NIV 20 He spoke these words while teaching in the temple area near the place where the offerings were put. Yet no one seized him, because his time had not yet come. NAS 21 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." NIV 21 Once more Jesus said to them, "I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come." NAS 22 So the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not kill Himself, will He, since He says, 'Where I am going, you cannot come '?" NIV 22 This made the Jews ask, "Will he kill himself ? Is that why he says, 'Where I go, you cannot come'?" NAS 23 And He was saying to them, "You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world. NIV 23 But he continued, "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. NAS 24 "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." NIV 24 I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be], you will indeed die in your sins." NAS 25 So they were saying to Him, "Who are You?" Jesus said to them, "What have I been saying to you from the beginning? NIV 25 "Who are you?" they asked. "Just what I have been claiming all along," Jesus replied. NAS 26 "I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world." NIV 26 "I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world." NAS 27 They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father. NIV 27 They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father. NAS 28 So Jesus said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. NIV 28 So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [the one I claim to be] and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. NAS 29 "And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him." NIV 29 The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him." NAS 30 As He spoke these things, many came to believe in Him. NIV 30 Even as he spoke, many put their faith in him.
