John 12:44-49

Context
Jesus’ Final Public Words

12:44 But Jesus shouted out, 1  “The one who believes in me does not believe in me, but in the one who sent me, 2  12:45 and the one who sees me sees the one who sent me. 3  12:46 I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in darkness. 12:47 If anyone 4  hears my words and does not obey them, 5  I do not judge him. For I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 6  12:48 The one who rejects me and does not accept 7  my words has a judge; 8  the word 9  I have spoken will judge him at the last day. 12:49 For I have not spoken from my own authority, 10  but the Father himself who sent me has commanded me 11  what I should say and what I should speak.
