Bible: John 8:21-30
Where Jesus Came From and Where He is Going
8:21 Then Jesus 1 said to them again, 2 “I am going away, and you will look for me 3 but will die in your sin. 4 Where I am going you cannot come.” 8:22 So the Jewish leaders 5 began to say, 6 “Perhaps he is going to kill himself, because he says, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’” 8:23 Jesus replied, 7 “You people 8 are from below; I am from above. You people are from this world; I am not from this world. 8:24 Thus I told you 9 that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I am he, 10 you will die in your sins.”
8:25 So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus replied, 11 “What I have told you from the beginning. 8:26 I have many things to say and to judge 12 about you, but the Father 13 who sent me is truthful, 14 and the things I have heard from him I speak to the world.” 15 8:27 (They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father.) 16
8:28 Then Jesus said, 17 “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, 18 and I do nothing on my own initiative, 19 but I speak just what the Father taught me. 20 8:29 And the one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, 21 because I always do those things that please him.” 8:30 While he was saying these things, many people 22 believed in him.
