Chapter 5

Impotent man healed -- The resurrection -- Testimony of Christ.

1)After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2)Now there is at Jerusalem, by the sheep market, a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue, Bethesda, having five porches.

3)In these porches lay a great multitude ofmany impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

4)For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water:, whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5)And a certain man was there, whichwho had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6)WhenAnd Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time inafflicted; that case,and he saithsaid unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

7)The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool:; but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

8)Jesus saithsaid unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

9)And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked:; and it was on the sameSabbath day was the sabbath.

10)The Jews therefore said unto him thatwho was cured, It is the sabbathSabbath day:; it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11)He answered them, He thatwho made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

12)Then askedanswered they him, saying, What man is thathe whichwho said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

13)And he that was healed wistknew not who it was:; for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in thatthe place.

14)Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole:; sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15)The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, whichwho had made him whole.;

16)And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbathSabbath day.

17)But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

18)Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he had not only had broken the sabbathSabbath, but said also that God was his Fatherfather, making himself equal with God.

19)Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verilyVerily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do:; for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

20)For the Father loveth the Son, and shewethshoweth him all things that himself doeth:; and he will shewshow him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

21)For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

22)For the Father judgeth no man,; but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:;

23)That all men should honourhonor the Son, even as they honourhonor the Father. He thatwho honourethhonoreth not the Son, honourethhonoreth not the Father whichwho hath sent him.

24)Verily, verily, I say unto you, He thatwho heareth my word, and believeth on him thatwho sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death untointo life.

25)Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:; and they thatwho hear shall live.

26)For as the Father hath life in himself;, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27)And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of manMan.

28)Marvel not at this:; for the hour is coming, in the which all thatwho are in thetheir graves shall hear his voice,.

29)And shall come forth; they thatwho have done good, untoin the resurrection of lifethe just; and they thatwho have done evil, untoin the resurrection of damnationthe unjust.

30)And shall all be judged of the Son of Man. For as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just;

31)For I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father whichwho hath sent me.

3132)IfTherefore if I bear witness of myself, yet my witness is not true.

3233)ThereFor I am not alone, there is another thatwho beareth witness of me;, and I know that the witnesstestimony which he witnessethgiveth of me is true.

3334)Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness also unto the truth.

3435)ButAnd Ihe received not his testimony of man, but of God, and ye yourselves say that he is a prophet, therefore ye ought to receive nothis testimony. from man: but theseThese things I say, that ye might be saved.

3536)He was a burning and a shining light:; and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

3637)But I have a greater witness than thatthe testimony of John:; for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

3738)And the Father himself, which hathwho sent me, hath borne witness of me. YeAnd verily I testify unto you, that ye have neithernever heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.;

3839)AndFor ye have not his word abiding in you:; forand him whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

3940)Search the scripturesScriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:; and they are they which testify of me.

4041)And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life, lest ye should honor me.

4142)I receive not honourhonor from men.

4243)But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

4344)I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

4445)How can ye believe, whichwho receiveseek honourhonor one of another, and seek not the honourhonor thatwhich cometh from God only?

4546)Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father:; there is oneMoses thatwho accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

4647)For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.

4748)But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
