Flashcards in John Chapter 05 Deck (47):

John 5:1

Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews.


John 5:2

Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades.


John 5:3

Here a great number of disabled people used to lie - the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.


John 5:4

(((This verse is not in the earliest Greek manuscripts and so is omitted in the NIV 1984 and other translations)))


John 5:5

One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years.


John 5:6

When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?"


John 5:7

"Sir," the invalid replied, "I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me."


John 5:8

Then Jesus said to him, "Get up! Pick up your mat and walk."


John 5:9

At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath,


John 5:10

and so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat."


John 5:11

But he replied, "The man who made me well said to me, 'Pick up your mat and walk.'"


John 5:12

So they asked him, "Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?"


John 5:13

The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.


John 5:14

Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you."


John 5:15

The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.


John 5:16

So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jews persecuted him.


John 5:17

Jesus said to them, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working."


John 5:18

For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.


John 5:19

Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.


John 5:20

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these.


John 5:21

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.


John 5:22

Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,


John 5:23

that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.


John 5:24

"I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.


John 5:25

I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.


John 5:26

For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself.


John 5:27

And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.


John 5:28

"Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice


John 5:29

and come out - those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.


John 5:30

By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.


John 5:31

"If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid.


John 5:32

There is another who testifies in my favor, and I know that his testimony about me is valid.


John 5:33

"You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth.


John 5:34

Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved.


John 5:35

John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.


John 5:36

"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.


John 5:37

And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,


John 5:38

nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.


John 5:39

You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me,


John 5:40

yet you refuse to come to me to have life.


John 5:41

"I do not accept praise from men,


John 5:42

but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.


John 5:43

I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.


John 5:44

How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?


John 5:45

"But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.


John 5:46

If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.


John 5:47

But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?"
