I and the Father Are One

John 10

22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, h in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are i the Christ, j tell us plainly." 25 Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. k The works that I do l in my Father's name bear witness about me, 26 but m you do not believe because you are not part of my flock. 27 n My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 o I give them eternal life, and p they will never perish, and q no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, r who has given them to me, 1 s is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of t the Father's hand. 30 u I and the Father are one."

31 v The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, "I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?" 33 The Jews answered him, "It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but w for blasphemy, because you, being a man, x make yourself God." 34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in y your Law, z 'I said, you are gods'? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of God came - and Scripture cannot be a broken - 36 do you say of him whom b the Father consecrated and c sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because d I said, 'I am the Son of God'? 37 e If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, f even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that g the Father is in me and I am in the Father." 39 h Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands.

40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place i where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him. And they said, "John did no sign, but j everything that John said about this man was true." 42 And k many believed in him there.
