After this, many of His disciples drew back (returned to their old associations) and no longer accompanied Him.
Yahushua said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.
If you had known Me, had learned to recognize Me, you would also have known My Father. From now on, you know Him and have seen Him.
Philip said to Him, Master, show us the Father, cause us to see the Father—that is all we ask; then we shall be satisfied.
Yahushua replied, Have I been with all of you for so long a time, and do you not recognize and know Me yet, Philip? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say then, Show us the Father?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in Me? What I am telling you I do not say on My own authority and of My own accord; but the Father Who lives continually in Me does His works, His own miracles, deeds of power.
You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these very Scriptures testify about Me!
And still you are not willing but refuse to come to Me, so that you might have life.
I receive not glory from men, I crave no human honor, I look for no mortal fame, but I know you and recognize and understand that you have not the love of My Father in you.
I have come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me, your hearts are not open to Me, you give Me no welcome; but if another comes in his own name and his own power and with no other authority but himself, you will receive him and give him your approval.
How is it possible for you to believe, how can you learn to believe, you who are content to seek and receive praise and honor and glory from one another, and yet do not seek the praise and honor and glory which come from Him Who alone is the Almighty Creator of your beings?
And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children—trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving, you can never enter the kingdom of heaven at all.
