5:21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, 1 so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. 2 5:22 Furthermore, the Father does not judge 3 anyone, but has assigned 4 all judgment to the Son, 5:23 so that all people 5 will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.
5:24 “I tell you the solemn truth, 6 the one who hears 7 my message 8 and believes the one who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned, 9 but has crossed over from death to life. 5:25 I tell you the solemn truth, 10 a time 11 is coming – and is now here – when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 5:26 For just as the Father has life in himself, thus he has granted the Son to have life in himself, 5:27 and he has granted the Son 12 authority to execute judgment, 13 because he is the Son of Man.
5:28 “Do not be amazed at this, because a time 14 is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 5:29 and will come out – the ones who have done what is good to the resurrection resulting in life, and the ones who have done what is evil to the resurrection resulting in condemnation. 15
