John 8:12-20

The Light of the World

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again: "I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life."
13 So the Pharisees said to Him, "You are testifying about Yourself. Your testimony is not valid."a
14 "Even if I testify about Myself," Jesus replied, "My testimony is valid, b because I know where I came from and where I'm going. But you don't know where I come from or where I'm going.
15 You judge by human standards. c I judge no one.
16 And if I do judge, My judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and the Father who sent Me [judge together].
17 Even in your law it is written that the witness of two men is valid.
18 I am the One who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me."
19 Then they asked Him, "Where is Your Father?" "You know neither Me nor My Father," Jesus answered. "If you knew Me, you would also know My Father."
20 He spoke these words by the treasury,d while teaching in the temple complex. But no one seized Him, because His houre had not come.
