Jesus Defends His Self-Witness
13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, “You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not [a]true.”
14 Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; butyou do not know where I come from and where I am going.15 You judge according to the flesh;I judge no one.16 And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; forI am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me.17 It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true.18 I am One who bears witness of Myself, andthe Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.”
19 Then they said to Him, “Where is Your Father?”
Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father.If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”
20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.
