NET ©

“But I have a testimony greater than that from John. For the deeds 1  that the Father has assigned me to complete – the deeds 2  I am now doing – testify about me that the Father has sent me.

NIV ©

"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.

"But the testimony which I have is greater than the testimony of John; for the works which the Father has given Me to accomplish—the very works that I do—testify about Me, that the Father has sent Me.

But the witness which I have is greater than that of John: the work which the Father has given me to do, the very work which I am now doing, is a witness that the Father has sent me.
