The Authority of the Son

John 5

19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, m the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 20 "For n the Father loves the Son, and o shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21 "For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, p even so the Son gives life to whom He will. 22 "For the Father judges no one, but q has committed all judgment to the Son, 23 "that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. r He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. 24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, s he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, t but has passed from death into life.

25 "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when u the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live. 26 "For v as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have w life in Himself, 27 "and x has given Him authority to execute judgment also, y because He is the Son of Man. 28 "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will z hear His voice 29 a "and come forth - b those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
