  • 1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
  • 2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in the Hebrew language, Bethesda, having five porches.
  • 3 In these lay a large crowd of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.
  • 4 Because, an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.
  • 5 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty eight years.
  • 6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”
  • 7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”
  • 8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”
  • 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And on the same day was the Sabbath.
  • 10 The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, “It is the Sabbath day; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.”
  • 11 He replied to them, “He who made me well, He said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’”
  • 12 Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?”
  • 13 But the one who was healed did not know who it was, because Jesus had withdrawn, a crowd being in that place.
  • 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.”
  • 15 The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
  • 16 So therefore the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath day.
  • 17 But Jesus responded to them, “My Father has been working until now, and I work.”
  • 18 Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.
  • 19 Then Jesus responded and said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; because whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
  • 20 Because, the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
  • 21 Because, as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.
  • 22 Because, the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son,
  • 23 that everyone should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
  • 24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes on Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and will not come into condemnation, but has passed from death into life.
  • 25 Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
  • 26 Because, as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,
  • 27 and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.
  • 28 Do not marvel at this; because, the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice
  • 29 and will come forth; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of damnation.
  • 30 I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who has sent Me.
  • 31 “If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true.
  • 32 There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true.
  • 33 You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth.
  • 34 Yet I do not receive testimony from man, but I say these things that you may be saved.
  • 35 He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light.
  • 36 But I have a greater witness than John’s; because, the works which the Father has given Me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me.
  • 37 And the Father Himself, who has sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.
  • 38 And you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.
  • 39 Search the Scriptures, because in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
  • 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
  • 41 “I do not receive honor from men.
  • 42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you.
  • 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.
  • 44 How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the God alone?
  • 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you, that is Moses, in whom you trust.
  • 46 Because, if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; because he wrote about Me.
  • 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how shall you believe My words?”
