27 (A)All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. (B)Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to (C)Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you (D)and learn from Me, for I am [a]gentle and (E)lowly in heart, (F)and you will find rest for your souls. 30 (G)For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

17 But Jesus answered them, (A)“My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”

18 Therefore the Jews (B)sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, (C)making Himself equal with God.

54 Jesus answered, (A)“If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. (B)It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is [a]your God. 55 Yet (C)you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and (D)keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham (E)rejoiced to see My day, (F)and he saw it and was glad.”

57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, (G)before Abraham was, (H)I AM.”

59 Then (I)they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, (J)going[b] through the midst of them, and so passed by.

The Shepherd Knows His Sheep

22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple, (A)in Solomon’s porch. 24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in [a]doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. (B)The works that I do in My Father’s name, they (C)bear witness of Me. 26 But (D)you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, [b]as I said to you. 27 (E)My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 (F)My Father, (G)who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 (H)I and My Father are one.”

Renewed Efforts to Stone Jesus

31 Then (I)the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”

33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for (J)blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, (K)make Yourself God.”

“Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? (A)Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? (B)Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has [a]power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic, 11 “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”
