Father raiseth up the dead and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: 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. Verily, verily, 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. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live.

John vi.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it froin me, but I lay it down of myself. I have

power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

CHAP, VÌ. Our Saviour's discourse before the Passover

John xii. EXCEPT a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but it it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man-serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
