(5) Life's Source and Origin --
God the Father
25 Then some of the people of Jerusalem said, Is not this the One whom they are seeking to kill?
26 And look, He is speaking openly, and they say nothing to Him. Have the rulers, perhaps, really recognized that this is the Christ?
27 But we aknow where this man is from; yet when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from.
28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, You both 1aknow Me and 1know where I am from; and bI have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not 1know.
29 I aknow Him, because I am 1bfrom Him, and He 2sent Me.
30 They sought then to aseize Him, yet no one laid a hand on Him, because bHis hour had not yet come.
31 But many out of the crowd believed into Him and said, Will the Christ, when He comes, do more signs than this man has done?
32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent attendants to arrest Him.
33 Jesus therefore said, aI am still with you a little while, and then bI am going to Him who sent Me.
34 aYou will seek Me and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come.
35 The Jews then said to one another, Where is this man about to go that we will not find Him? Is He about to go to the Jews in dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks?
36 What is the word which He said, You will seek Me and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come?
