John 5:31John 5:47

d. The Son's Fourfold Testimony

31 If aI testify concerning Myself, My testimony is not true.

(1) The Testimony of John the Baptist

32 There is another who testifies concerning Me, and I know that the testimony which he testifies concerning Me is true.

33 You have sent people to John, and ahe has testified to the 1truth.

34 But it is not from man that I receive My testimony, but I say these things that you may be saved.

35 He was the lamp that was burning and shining, and you were willing to exult for a while in his light.

(2) The Testimony of the Son's Work

36 But I have the testimony which is greater than that of John, for the aworks which the Father has given Me to finish, the works themselves which I do, testify concerning Me that the Father has 1bsent Me.

(3) The Testimony of the Father

37 And the aFather who sent Me, He has 1testified concerning Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor have you seen His form,

38 And you do not have His word abiding in you, for Him whom He sent, this One you do not believe.

(4) The Testimony of the Scriptures

39 You 1search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me.

40 Yet you are not willing to 1come to Me that you may have life.

41 I do not receive glory from men.

42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.

43 I have come 1ain the name of My Father, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

44 How can you believe when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that is from the only God?

45 Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; there is one who accuses you: Moses, in whom you have set your hope.

46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for ahe wrote concerning Me.

47 But aif you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?
