John 12:47-50

Context

For I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 3  12:48 The one who rejects me and does not accept 4  my words has a judge; 5  the word 6  I have spoken will judge him at the last day. 12:49 For I have not spoken from my own authority, 7  but the Father himself who sent me has commanded me 8  what I should say and what I should speak. 12:50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. 9  Thus the things I say, I say just as the Father has told me.” 10
