So the Jews[fn] said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.”

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:17

But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:18

Tools specific to Jhn 5:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:20

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater works than these will he show him, so that you may marvel.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:25

If I alone bear witness about myself, my testimony is not true.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:32

Tools specific to Jhn 5:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:33

You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:34

Tools specific to Jhn 5:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:35

He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:36

Tools specific to Jhn 5:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:37

And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness about me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen,

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:38

and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:39

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:41

Tools specific to Jhn 5:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:43

How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?

Tools specific to Jhn 5:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:45

For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:47

But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?”
