The Holy Gospel According to John    8: 12-20

8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me does not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
8:13 And so the Pharisees said to him, “You offer testimony about yourself; your testimony is not true.”
8:14 Jesus responded and said to them: “Even though I offer testimony about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going.
8:15 You judge according to the flesh. I do not judge anyone.
8:16 And when I do judge, my judgment is true. For I am not alone, but it is I and he who sent me: the Father.
8:17 And it is written in your law that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am one who offers testimony about myself, and the Father who sent me offers testimony about me.”
8:19 Therefore, they said to him, “Where is your Father?” Jesus answered: “You know neither me, nor my Father. If you did know me, perhaps you would know my Father also.”
8:20 Jesus spoke these words at the treasury, while teaching in the temple. And no one apprehended him, because his hour had not yet come.
