Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place.
Afterward, Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse befall you."
The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him.
And this was why the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did this on the sabbath.
But Jesus answered them, "My Father is working still, and I am working."
This was why the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath but also called God his Father, making himself equal with God.
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the Son does likewise.
For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all that he himself is doing; and greater works than these will he show him, that you may marvel.
For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will.
The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son,
that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.
