Jesus Came to Save the World

John 12

44 And Jesus cried out and said, z "Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but a in him who sent me. 45 And b whoever c sees me sees him who sent me. 46 d I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47 If anyone e hears my words and does not keep them, f I do not judge him; for g I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 h The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; i the word that I have spoken will judge him j on the last day. 49 For k I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father l who sent me has himself given me m a commandment - what to say and what to speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me."
