Bible: John 12:38-42

12:38 so that the word 1  of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled. He said, 2 Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord 3  been revealed? 4  12:39 For this reason they could not believe, 5  because again Isaiah said,

12:40He has blinded their eyes

and hardened their heart, 6 

so that they would not see with their eyes

and understand with their heart, 7 

and turn to me, 8  and I would heal them.” 9 

12:41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Christ’s 10  glory, and spoke about him.

12:42 Nevertheless, even among the rulers 11  many believed in him, but because of the Pharisees 12  they would not confess Jesus to be the Christ, 13  so that they would not be put out of 14  the synagogue. 15
