The Third Sign: Healing the Sick

Tools specific to Jhn 5:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:1

After this, a Jewish festival took place, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:2

By the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem there is a pool, called Bethesda[fn] in Hebrew, which has five colonnades.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:3

Within these lay a large number of the sick — blind, lame, and paralyzed [ — waiting for the moving of the water,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:4

because an angel would go down into the pool from time to time and stir up the water. Then the first one who got in after the water was stirred up recovered from whatever ailment he had].[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:5

One man was there who had been sick for 38 years.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:6

When Jesus saw him lying there and knew he had already been there a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to get well? ”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:7

“Sir,” the sick man answered, “I don’t have a man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I’m coming, someone goes down ahead of me.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:8

“Get up,” Jesus told him, “pick up your mat and walk! ”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:9

Instantly the man got well, picked up his mat, and started to walk.

Now that day was the Sabbath,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:10

so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, “This is the Sabbath! It’s illegal for you to pick up your mat.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:11

He replied, “The man who made me well told me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’ ”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:12

“Who is this man who told you, ‘Pick up your mat and walk’? ” they asked.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:13

But the man who was cured did not know who it was, because Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:14

After this, Jesus found him in the temple complex and said to him, “See, you are well. Do not sin anymore, so that something worse doesn’t happen to you.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:15

The man went and reported to the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.

  
Honoring the Father and the Son

Tools specific to Jhn 5:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:16

Therefore, the Jews began persecuting Jesus[fn] because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:17

But Jesus responded to them, “My Father is still working, and I am working also.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:18

This is why the Jews began trying all the more to kill Him: Not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He was even calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:19

Then Jesus replied, “I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father[fn] does, the Son also does these things in the same way.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:20

For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing, and He will show Him greater works than these so that you will be amazed.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:21

And just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so the Son also gives life to anyone He wants to.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:22

The Father, in fact, judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:23

so that all people will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

  
Life and Judgment

Tools specific to Jhn 5:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:24

“I assure you: Anyone who hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment but has passed from death to life.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:25

“I assure you: An hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:26

For just as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted to the Son to have life in Himself.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:27

And He has granted Him the right to pass judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:28

Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the graves will hear His voice

Tools specific to Jhn 5:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:29

and come out — those who have done good things, to the resurrection of life, but those who have done wicked things, to the resurrection of judgment.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:30

“I can do nothing on My own. I judge only as I hear, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

  
Four Witnesses to Jesus

Tools specific to Jhn 5:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:31

“If I testify about Myself, My testimony is not valid.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:32

There is Another who testifies about Me, and I know that the testimony He gives about Me is valid.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:33

You have sent messengers to John, and he has testified to the truth.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:34

I don’t receive man’s testimony, but I say these things so that you may be saved.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:35

John[fn] was a burning and shining lamp, and for a time you were willing to enjoy his light.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:36

“But I have a greater testimony than John’s because of the works that the Father has given Me to accomplish. These very works I am doing testify about Me that the Father has sent Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:37

The Father who sent Me has Himself testified about Me. You have not heard His voice at any time, and you haven’t seen His form.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:38

You don’t have His word living in you, because you don’t believe the One He sent.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:39

You pore over[fn] the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:40

And you are not willing to come to Me so that you may have life.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:41

“I do not accept glory from men,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:42

but I know you — that you have no love for God within you.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:43

I have come in My Father’s name, yet you don’t accept Me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:44

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:44

How can you believe? While accepting glory from one another, you don’t seek the glory that comes from the only God.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:45

Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom you have set your hope.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:46

For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:47

But if you don’t believe his writings, how will you believe My words? ”
