John 5:17John 5:30

c. The Son Equal with the Father
in Giving Life and Executing Judgment

17 But Jesus answered them, My Father is 1working until now, and I also am working.

18 Because of this therefore the Jews 1sought all the more to akill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath but also called God His own Father, making Himself 2equal with bGod.

19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, aThe Son can do nothing from Himself except what He sees the Father doing, for whatever that One does, these things the Son also does in like manner.

20 For athe Father loves the Son and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and bgreater works than these He will show Him that you may marvel.

21 For just as the Father araises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom He wills.

22 For neither does the Father judge anyone, but He has given all ajudgment to the Son,

23 In order that all may honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

24 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who hears My word and abelieves Him who sent Me has 1eternal life, and does not come into 2judgment but has bpassed out of 3death into life.

25 Truly, truly, I say to you, An hour is coming, and it is now, when the 1adead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will 1live.

26 For just as the Father has life in Himself, so He gave to the Son to also have alife in Himself;

27 And He gave Him authority to execute ajudgment because He is the 1Son of Man.

28 Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming in which 1all in the tombs will hear His avoice

29 And will come forth: athose who have done good, to the 1bresurrection of life; and those who have 2practiced evil, to the 3cresurrection of 4judgment.

30 aI can do nothing from Myself; as I hear, I judge, and bMy judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will but the cwill of Him who sent Me.
