I Am the Light of the World

John 8

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, i "I am the light of the world. He who j follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." 13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, k "You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not 1 true." 14 Jesus answered and said to them, "Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but l you do not know where I come from and where I am going. 15 m "You judge according to the flesh; n I judge no one. 16 "And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for o I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me. 17 p "It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. 18 "I am One who bears witness of Myself, and q the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me." 19 Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, r "You know neither Me nor My Father. s If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also." 20 These words Jesus spoke in t the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and u no one laid hands on Him, for v His hour had not yet come.

21 Then Jesus said to them again, "I am going away, and w you will seek Me, and x will die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come." 22 So the Jews said, "Will He kill Himself, because He says, 'Where I go you cannot come'?" 23 And He said to them, y "You are from beneath; I am from above. z You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 a "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; b for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." 25 Then they said to Him, "Who are You?" And Jesus said to them, "Just what I c have been saying to you from the beginning. 26 "I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but d He who sent Me is true; and e I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him." 27 They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father. 28 Then Jesus said to them, "When you f lift 2 up the Son of Man, g then you will know that I am He, and h that I do nothing of Myself; but i as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. 29 "And j He who sent Me is with Me. k The Father has not left Me alone, l for I always do those things that please Him." 30 As He spoke these words, m many believed in Him.
