John 8

12Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
13So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.”
14Jesus answered, “Even if I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going.
15You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.
16Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father who sent me.
17In your Law it is written that the testimony of two people is true.
18I am the one who bears witness about myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.”
19They said to him therefore, “Where is your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”
20These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
