After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. JH 5:1 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five [covered WU] porches. JH 5:2 In these lay a great multitude of impotent [sick] folk, of blind, halt [lame], withered [paralyzed], waiting for the moving of the water. JH 5:3 For an angel went down at a certain season [time] into the pool, and troubled [stirred up] the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole [healed WU] of whatsoever disease he had. JH 5:4 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. JH 5:5 When Jesus saw him lie [lying there], and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou [do you want to] be made whole [well]? JH 5:6 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. JH 5:7 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed [mat], and walk. JH 5:8 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. JH 5:9 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. JH 5:10 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. JH 5:11 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? JH 5:12 And he that was healed wist [did] not [know] who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. JH 5:13
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole [well]: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. JH 5:14 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. JH 5:15
And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. JH 5:16 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto [right up to this day WU], and I [too] work. JH 5:17 APPLY Work Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his [own] Father, making himself equal with God. JH 5:18 JESUS Is God Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of [by WU] himself, but [only WU] what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever [whatever things] he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. JH 5:19 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth [shows] him all things that [he] himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. JH 5:20 PRINCIPLES For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [gives life to] them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will [desires]. JH 5:21 NEED GOD He Enables For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: JH 5:22 JUDGEMENT By Christ That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. JH 5:23 JESUS One w Father Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. JH 5:24 BELIEVE Save Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, The hour [time WU] is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. JH 5:25 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; JH 5:26 JESUS One w Father And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. JH 5:27 JESUS Authority JUDGEMENT By Christ Marvel not at this: for the hour [time WU] is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, JH 5:28 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of [for WU] damnation. JH 5:29 JUDGEMENT Separation I can of [by WU] mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: PRINCIPLES and my judgment is just; JUDGEMENT By Christ because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. JH 5:30 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Love the Lord If I bear witness of [testify about] myself, my witness is not true [valid]. JH 5:31 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness [testimony] which he witnesseth of [testifies about] me is true. JH 5:32 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. JH 5:33 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. JH 5:34 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season [while] to rejoice in his light. JH 5:35 But I have greater witness [testimony] than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the [very] same works that I do, bear witness of [testify about] me, that the Father hath sent me. JH 5:36 APPLY Natural And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. JH 5:37 And ye have not his word abiding [dwelling WU] in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. JH 5:38 BELIEVE Bring God [you] Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they [these] are they which testify of [about] me. JH 5:39 And [yet] ye will not [are not willing to WU] come to me, [so WU] that ye might have life. JH 5:40 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Refusing I receive not honour [praise WU] from men. JH 5:41 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. JH 5:42 JESUS Teacher I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive [accept WU] me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. JH 5:43 How can ye believe, which receive honour [accept praise WU] one of [from] another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only [the only God]? JH 5:44 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Hating Good Do not think that I will accuse you to [before WU] the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust [have set your hope]. JH 5:45 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. JH 5:46 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? JH 5:47 BELIEVE Save
