The Holy Gospel According to John   5: 31-47

5:31 If I offer testimony about myself, my testimony is not true.
5:32 There is another who offers testimony about me, and I know that the testimony which he offers about me is true.
5:33 You sent to John, and he offered testimony to the truth.
5:34 But I do not accept testimony from man. Instead, I say these things, so that you may be saved.
5:35 He was a burning and shining light. So you were willing, at the time, to exult in his light.
5:36 But I hold a greater testimony than that of John. For the works which the Father has given to me, so that I may complete them, these works themselves that I do, offer testimony about me: that the Father has sent me.
5:37 And the Father who has sent me has himself offered testimony about me. And you have never heard his voice, nor have you beheld his appearance.
5:38 And you do not have his word abiding in you. For the one whom he sent, the same you would not believe.
5:39 Study the Scriptures. For you think that in them you have eternal life. And yet they also offer testimony about me.
5:40 And you are not willing to come to me, so that you may have life.
5:41 I do not accept glory from men.
5:42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God within you.
5:43 I have come in the name of my Father, and you do not accept me. If another will arrive in his own name, him you will accept.
5:44 How are you able to believe, you who accept glory from one another and yet do not seek the glory that is from God alone?
5:45 Do not consider that I might accuse you with the Father. There is one who accuses you, Moses, in whom you hope.
5:46 For if you were believing in Moses, perhaps you would believe in me also. For he wrote about me.
5:47 But if you do not believe by his writings, how will you believe by my words?”
