(3) The Eternal Life, the Son's Hand, and the Father's Hand --
For the Security of the Sheep
22 At that time the 1Feast of the Dedication occurred in Jerusalem, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus was walking in the temple in the aportico of Solomon.
24 The Jews therefore surrounded Him and said to Him, How long will You hold our soul in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us aplainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and you do not believe. The aworks which I do 1in My Father's name, these testify concerning Me;
26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep.
27 My sheep ahear My voice, and bI know them, and they cfollow Me;
28 And I give to them 1aeternal life, and they shall by no means perish forever, and bno one shall csnatch them out of 1My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can asnatch them out of My 1Father's hand.
30 1I and the Father are aone.
