John 5:18

5:18 For this reason the Jewish leaders 1  were trying even harder to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was also calling God his own Father, thus making himself equal with God.

John 7:12

7:12 There was 2  a lot of grumbling 3  about him among the crowds. 4  Some were saying, “He is a good man,” but others, “He deceives the common people.” 5 

John 9:24


9:24 Then they summoned 6  the man who used to be blind 7  a second time and said to him, “Promise before God to tell the truth. 8  We know that this man 9  is a sinner.”

John 10:33

10:33 The Jewish leaders 10  replied, 11  “We are not going to stone you for a good deed 12  but for blasphemy, 13  because 14  you, a man, are claiming to be God.” 15
