And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
Then came the Jews around him, and said to him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou art the Christ, tell us plainly.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I did in my Father's name, they testify concerning me.
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said to you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any pluck them out of my hand.
My Father, who gave [them to] me, is greater than all; and none is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand.
I and [my] Father are one.
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shown you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy, and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know and believe that the Father [is] in me, and I in him.
Therefore they sought again to take him; but he escaped from their hand,
And went again beyond Jordan, into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
And many resorted to him, and said, John performed no miracle; but all things that John spoke of this man were true.
And many believed on him there.
