Such testimony is not valid.” 14 Jesus told them, “These claims are valid even though I make them about myself. For I know where I came from and where I am going, but you don’t know this about me. 18 I am one witness, and my Father who sent me is the other.” 26 I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won’t. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful.” . 28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I Am he.[g] I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me. 29 And the one who sent me is with me—he has not deserted me. For I always do what pleases him. 31 if you remain faithful to my teachings.
