The Authority of the Son of God

John

violet star The One from Above

“ The one who comes from above is above all ; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard , but no one accepts his testimony. The man who has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God , for God gives the Spirit without limit. ( NIV ) violet star white star violet star

John 3: 31 - 34

aqua star the Authority of the Son of God

Jesus gave them this answer : “ I tell you the truth , the Son can do nothing by himself ; he can do only what he sees his Father doing , because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these. For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. Moreover, the Father judges no one , but has entrusted all judgment to the Son , that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. “ I tell you the truth , whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned ; he has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth , a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself , so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. Do not be amazed at this , for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out - those who have done good will rise to life, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.
