The Father and the Son

16And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. 17But Jesus answered them, My Father works till now, and I work. 18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19Then answered Jesus and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise. 20For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21For as the Father raises up the dead, and vivifies them; even so the Son vivifies whom he will. 22For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son: 23That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him. 24Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life. 25Truly, truly, I say to you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29And shall come forth; they that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, to the resurrection of damnation. 30I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.
