John 8:54-55

Context
8:54 Jesus replied, 1  “If I glorify myself, my glory is worthless. 2  The one who glorifies me is my Father, about whom you people 3  say, ‘He is our God.’ 8:55 Yet 4  you do not know him, but I know him. If I were to say that I do not know him, 5  I would be a liar like you. But I do know him, and I obey 6  his teaching. 7
