(4) The Persecution of Religion
31 The Jews again atook up stones that they might stone Him.
32 Jesus answered them, I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of these works are you stoning Me?
33 The Jews answered Him, We are not stoning You for a good work, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a man, are making Yourself aGod.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, "I said, aYou are gods''?
35 If He said they were gods, to whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken,
36 Do you say of Him whom the Father ahas sanctified and 1bsent into the world, You are blaspheming, because I said, cI am the Son of God?
37 If I do not do the aworks of My Father, do not believe Me;
38 But if I do them, even if you do not believe Me, abelieve the works so that you may come to know and continue to know that the bFather is in Me and I am in the Father.
39 Then they sought again to aseize Him, yet He went forth out of their hand.
