Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:1 - After these things there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:2 - Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:3 - In these lay a multitude of them that were sick, blind, halt, withered, [fn]waiting for the moving of the water:
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:4 - [fn]for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the waters stepped in was made whole, with whatsoever disease he was holden.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:5 - And a certain man was there, who had been thirty and eight years in his infirmity.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:6 - When Jesus saw him lying, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wouldest thou be made whole?
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:7 - The sick man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:8 - Jesus saith unto him, Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.

Jesus' Equality with God

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:18 - For this cause therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only brake the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:19 - Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:20 - For the Father loveth the Son, and showeth him all things that himself doeth: and greater works than these will he show him, that ye may marvel.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:21 - For as the Father raiseth the dead and giveth them life, even so the Son also giveth life to whom he will.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:22 - For neither doth the Father judge any man, but he hath given all judgment unto the Son;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:23 - that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me, hath eternal life, and cometh not into judgment, but hath passed out of death into life.

Two Resurrections

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:26 - For as the Father hath life in himself, even so gave he to the Son also to have life in himself:
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:27 - and he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:28 - Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice,
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:29 - and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:30 - I can of myself do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is righteous; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:31 - If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:32 - It is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

Witness of John

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:33 - Ye have sent unto John, and he hath borne witness unto the truth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:34 - But the witness which I receive is not from man: howbeit I say these things, that ye may be saved.

Witness of Works

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:36 - But the witness which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father hath given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

Witness of the Father

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:37 - And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:38 - And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe not.

Witness of the Scripture

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:39 - Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:40 - and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:41 - I receive not glory from men.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:42 - But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in yourselves.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:44 - How can ye believe, who receive glory one of another, and the glory that cometh from the only God ye seek not?
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:45 - Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, on whom ye have set your hope.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:46 - For if ye believed Moses, ye would believe me; for he wrote of me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 5:47 - But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
