Bible Quote 5:19 Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
5:20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these.

5:21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.
5:22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,
5:23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.
5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.
5:25 I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.

5:26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself.
5:27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.
5:28 "Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice
5:29 and come out--those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.
5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

5:31 "If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid.
