5:1 After these things, there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, or paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water;
5:4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain times into the pool, and stirred up the water. Whoever stepped in first after the stirring of the water was made whole of whatever disease he was afflicted with.
5:5 A certain man was there, who had been sick for thirty-eight years.
5:8 Jesus said to him, "Arise, take up your mat, and walk."
5:11 He answered them, "He who made me well, the same said to me, `Take up your mat, and walk.`"
5:12 Then they asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, `Take up your mat, and walk`?"
5:14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "Behold, you are made well. Sin no more, so that nothing worse happens to you."
5:15 The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.
5:16 For this cause the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill him, because he did these things on the Sabbath.
5:17 But Jesus answered them, "My Father is still working, so I am working, too."
5:19 Jesus therefore answered them, "Most assuredly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father doing. For whatever things he does, these the Son also does likewise.
5:20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that he himself does. He will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
5:22 For neither does the Father judge any man, but he has given all judgment to the Son,
5:23 that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who doesn`t honor the Son doesn`t honor the Father who sent him.
5:27 He also gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man.
5:29 and will come forth; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.
5:30 I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous; because I don`t seek my own will, but the will of my Father who sent me.
5:31 If I testify about myself, my witness is not valid.
5:32 It is another who testifies about me. I know that the testimony which he testifies about me is true.
5:33 You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth.
5:34 But the testimony which I receive is not from man. However, I say these things that you may be saved.
5:35 He was the lamp that burns and shines, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.
5:36 But the testimony which I have is greater than that of John, for the works which the Father has given me to accomplish, the very works that I do, testify about me, that the Father has sent me.
5:38 You don`t have his word living in you; for whom he sent, him you don`t believe.
5:39 You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me.
5:40 Yet you will not come to me, that you may have life.
5:41 I don`t receive glory from men.
5:42 But I know you, that you don`t have God`s love in yourselves.
5:43 I have come in my Father`s name, and you don`t receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him.
5:44 How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and you don`t seek the glory that comes from the only God?
5:46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me.
5:47 But if you don`t believe his writings, how will you believe my words?
