Jesus declared publicly:
‘Whoever believes in me
believes not in me
but in the one who sent me,
and whoever sees me,
sees the one who sent me.
I, the light, have come into the world,
so that whoever believes in me
need not stay in the dark any more.
If anyone hears my words and does not keep them faithfully,
it is not I who shall condemn him,
since I have come not to condemn the world,
but to save the world.
He who rejects me and refuses my words has his judge already:
the word itself that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.
For what I have spoken does not come from myself;
no, what I was to say,
what I had to speak,
was commanded by the Father who sent me,
and I know that his commands mean eternal life.
And therefore what the Father has told me
is what I speak.’
Ἰησοῦς δὲ ἔκραξεν καὶ εἶπεν·
ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ
οὐ πιστεύει εἰς ἐμὲ
ἀλλὰ εἰς τὸν πέμψαντα με,
καὶ ὁ θεωρῶν ἐμὲ
θεωρεῖ τὸν πέμψαντα με.
ἐγὼ φῶς εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἐλήλυθα,
ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ
ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ μὴ μείνῃ.
καὶ ἐάν τίς μου ἀκούσῃ τῶν ῥημάτων καὶ μὴ φυλάξῃ,
ἐγὼ οὐ κρίνω αὐτόν·
οὐ γὰρ ἦλθον ἵνα κρίνω τὸν κόσμον,
ἀλλ’ ἵνα σώσω τὸν κόσμον.
ὁ ἀθετῶν ἐμὲ καὶ μὴ λαμβάνων τὰ ῥήματα μου ἔχει τὸν κρίνοντα αὐτὸν·
ὁ λόγος ὃν ἐλάλησα ἐκεῖνος κρινεῖ αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ.
ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐξ ἐμαυτοῦ οὐκ ἐλάλησα,
ἀλλ’ ὁ πέμψας με πατὴρ
αὐτός μοι ἐντολὴν δέδωκεν
καὶ τί λαλήσω.
καὶ οἶδα ὅτι ἡ ἐντολὴ αὐτοῦ ζωὴ αἰώνιος ἐστιν.
ἃ οὖν ἐγὼ λαλῶ, καθὼς εἴρηκεν μοι ὁ πατήρ,
