Bible: John 5:36-47

5:36But I have a testimony greater than that from John. For the deeds 1  that the Father has assigned me to complete – the deeds 2  I am now doing – testify about me that the Father has sent me. 5:37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified about me. You people 3  have never heard his voice nor seen his form at any time, 4  5:38 nor do you have his word residing in you, because you do not believe the one whom he sent. 5:39 You study the scriptures thoroughly 5  because you think in them you possess eternal life, 6  and it is these same scriptures 7  that testify about me, 5:40 but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life.

5:41I do not accept 8  praise 9  from people, 10  5:42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God 11  within you. 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept 12  me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept 13  him. 5:44 How can you believe, if you accept praise 14  from one another and don’t seek the praise 15  that comes from the only God? 16 

5:45Do not suppose that I will accuse you before the Father. The one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have placed your hope. 17  5:46 If 18  you believed Moses, you would believe me, because he wrote about me. 5:47 But if you do not believe what Moses 19  wrote, how will you believe my words?
