5:1 After this was the feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 And there is in Jerusalem at the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a multitude of sick persons, blind, lame, withered.
5 But there was a man there that had been sick thirty-eight years.
6 Jesus saw him lying, and, knowing that he had already been sick a long time, said to him: Wilt thou be restored to health?
7 The sick man answered him: Sir, I have no man, that when the water is stirred he may put me into the pool; but while I am coming another goes down before me.
8 Jesus says to him: Arise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And the man was restored to health, and took up his bed and walked; but a sabbath was on that day.
10 The Jews then said to him that had been cured: It is a sabbath, and it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them: He that made me well said to me: Take up thy bed and walk.
12 They asked him: Who is the man that said to thee: Take up and walk?
13 But the sick man knew not who he was; for Jesus had withdrawn, as a multitude was in the place.
14 After this Jesus finds him in the temple; and he said to him: Behold, thou hast been restored to health: sin no more, lest something worse befall thee.
15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus that had made him well.
16 And for this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did these things on the sabbath.
17 But he answered them: My Father works till now, and I work.
18 For this reason did the Jews seek the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal to God.
19 Jesus therefore answered and said to them: Verily, verily, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do; for whatever he does, these also the Son does in like manner,
20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that he himself does; and greater works than these will he show him, that you may wonder.
21 For as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so also the Son makes alive whom he will.
22 For neither does the Father judge any one, but has given all judicial authority to the Son,
23 that all may honor the Son as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father who sent him.
24 Verily, verily, I say to you, that he that hears my word and believes on him that sent me has life eternal, and comes not into condemnation, but has passed out of death into life.
25 Verily, verily, I say to you, that the hour comes, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father has life in himself, so has he given to the Son also to have life in himself.
27 And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of man.
28 Wonder not at this, for the hour comes in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 and shall come forth, those that have done good, to the resurrection of life; those that have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
30 I can do nothing of myself: as I hear I judge, and my judgment is righteous, because I seek not my will, but the will of him that sent me.
31 If I testify of myself, my testimony is not true:
32 there is another that testifies of me, and you know that the testimony which he testifies of me is true.
33 You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth;
34 but I receive not testimony from man, but these things I say that you may be saved.
35 He was the burning and the shining light, and you were willing to rejoice for an hour in his light.
36 But I have testimony greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has given me to accomplish, the works themselves that I do, testify of me that the Father has sent me.
37 And the Father who sent me, he has testified of me: neither his voice have you heard at any time, nor his shape have you seen,
38 and his word you have not abiding in you, for whom he has sent, him you believe not.
39 You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life, and they are they that testify of me;
40 and yet you will not come to me that you may have life.
41 I receive not glory from men,
42 but I know you, that you have not the love of God in you.
43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another should come in his own name, him you would receive.
44 How can you believe while receiving glory one from another, and you seek not the glory that is from the only God?
45 Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: there is he that accuses you, Moses, in whom you trust.
46 For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47 But if you believe not his writings, how will you believe my words?
