John 12:44-50 NAS
And Jesus cried out and
said, "He who
believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. He
who sees Me sees the one who sent Me. I have come as Light
into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in
darkness. If any one hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do
not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the
world. He who rejects Me does not receive My sayings, has one who
judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.
For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent
Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to
speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the
things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me."
