Jesus Asserts His Deity

22 At that time the [a]Feast of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem; 23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple area, in the portico of (A)Solomon. 24 (B)The Jews then surrounded Him and began saying to Him, “How long [b]will You keep us in suspense? If You are the [c]Christ, tell us (C)plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, (D)I told you, and you do not believe; (E)the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me. 26 But you do not believe, because (F)you are not of My sheep. 27 My sheep (G)listen to My voice, and (H)I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give them (I)eternal life, and they will never perish; and (J)no one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 [d]My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 (K)I and the Father are [e]one.”
