Bible: John 12:37-41

The Outcome of Jesus’ Public Ministry Foretold

12:37 Although Jesus 1  had performed 2  so many miraculous signs before them, they still refused to believe in him, 12:38 so that the word 3  of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled. He said, 4 Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord 5  been revealed? 6  12:39 For this reason they could not believe, 7  because again Isaiah said,

12:40He has blinded their eyes

and hardened their heart, 8 

so that they would not see with their eyes

and understand with their heart, 9 

and turn to me, 10  and I would heal them.” 11 

12:41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Christ’s 12  glory, and spoke about him.
