10:25 Jesus replied, 1 “I told you and you do not believe. The deeds 2 I do in my Father’s name testify about me.
10:32 Jesus said to them, 3 “I have shown you many good deeds 4 from the Father. For which one of them are you going to stone me?”
10:38 But if I do them, even if you do not believe me, believe the deeds, 5 so that you may come to know 6 and understand that I am in the Father and the Father is in me.”
1 tn Grk “answered them.”
2 tn Or “the works.”
3 tn Grk “Jesus answered them.”

6 tn Or “so that you may learn.”
