20 Now there were some Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast;21 these then came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”22 Philip *came and *told Andrew; Andrew and Philip *came and *told Jesus.23 And Jesus *answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.25 He who loves his [a]life loses it, and he who hates his [b]life in this world will keep it to life eternal.26 If anyone [c]serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone [d]serves Me, the Father will honor him.
Jesus Foretells His Death
27 “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.28 Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered; others were saying, “An angel has spoken to Him.”30 Jesus answered and said, “This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes.31 Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.”33 But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.34 The crowd then answered Him, “We have heard out of the Law that [e]the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, ‘The Son of Man must be lifted up’? Who is this Son of Man?”35 So Jesus said to them, “For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.36 While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light.”
These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and [f]hid Himself from them.
