Testimony Concerning the Son of God

1 John 5

6 This is He who came i by water and blood - Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. j And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear witness 1 in heaven: the Father, k the Word, and the Holy Spirit; l and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: m the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. 9 If we receive n the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; o for this is the witness of 2 God which He has testified of His Son. 10 He who believes in the Son of God p has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God q has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 r He who has the Son has 3 life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
