Jesus Is Rejected by the Jews

22 At that time the Festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon.(A) 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah,[a] tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered, “I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me,(B) 26 but you do not believe because you do not belong to my sheep.(C) 27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.(D) 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.(E) 29 My Father, in regard to what he has given me, is greater than all,[b] and no one can snatch them out of the Father’s hand.(F) 30 The Father and I are one.”
