10 “You are Israel’s teacher,”(A) said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know,(B) and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.(C) 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven(D) except the one who came from heaven(E)—the Son of Man.[a](F) 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness,(G) so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[b](H) 15 that everyone who believes(I) may have eternal life in him.”[c](J)
