John Chapter 5
5:33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
5:34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that
ye might be saved.
5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a
season to rejoice in his light.
5:36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which
the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear
witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of
me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him
ye believe not.
5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of me.
5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
5:41 I receive not honour from men.
5:42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another
shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
5:44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek
not the honour that cometh from God only?
5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one
that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote
5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
