This is an amazing passage of the truth of who Jesus is.
The leaders of the time knew exactly who Jesus claimed to be. They wanted to kill him because he described himself as equal with God.
Jesus made clear, bold statements about his relationship with God. God loved Jesus and gave him authority, so that Jesus would receive honor.
Jesus said he only did what God did and what pleased God; if people did not honor him, they did not honor God.
And what grace! Those of us who listen to Jesus and believe have already crossed over into a new life.
Verse 24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
