Tools specific to Jhn 5:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:1

Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:2

Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda[fn] and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:3

Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 5:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:4

Tools specific to Jhn 5:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:5

One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:6

When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:7

“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:8

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:9

At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:10

and so the Jewish leaders said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:11

But he replied, “The man who made me well said to me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’ ”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:12

So they asked him, “Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:13

The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:14

Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:15

The man went away and told the Jewish leaders that it was Jesus who had made him well.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:16

So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:17

In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”

Tools specific to Jhn 5:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:18

For this reason they tried 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

Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:20

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:21

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:22

Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:23

that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:24

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:25

Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come 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 as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:27

And he has given him authority to judge 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, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice

Tools specific to Jhn 5:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:29

and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:30

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:31

“If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:32

There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is true.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:33

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

Tools specific to Jhn 5:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:34

Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:35

John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:36

“I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish—the very works that I am doing—testify that the Father has sent me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:37

And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:38

nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:39

You study[fn] the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:40

yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:41

“I do not accept glory from human beings,

Tools specific to Jhn 5:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:42

but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:43

I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but 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 since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God[fn]?

Tools specific to Jhn 5:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:45

“But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:46

If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.

Tools specific to Jhn 5:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 5:47

But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?”
