“I entered this world to render judgment—to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see that they are blind.”
Life in Christ
“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.”
Then Jesus went to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and taught there in the synagogue every Sabbath day. There, too, the people were amazed at his teaching, for he spoke with authority.
At that point they picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus was hidden from them and left the Temple.
It’s because you can’t even hear me! For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does.
“Unless you believe that I am who I claim to be, you will die in your sins.”
They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”
(When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)
