And the Father who sent me has testified about me himself. You have never heard his voice or seen him face to face,
and you do not have his message in your hearts, because you do not believe me—the one he sent to you.
“You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me!
Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life.
“Your approval means nothing to me,
because I know you don’t have God’s love within you.
For I have come to you in my Father’s name, and you have rejected me. Yet if others come in their own name, you gladly welcome them.
No wonder you can’t believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don’t care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God.
“Yet it isn’t I who will accuse you before the Father. Moses will accuse you! Yes, Moses, in whom you put your hopes.
If you really believed Moses, you would believe me, because he wrote about me.
But since you don’t believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?”
