ContextJohn's Testimony Concerning Jesus
22After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized. 23And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. 24For John was not yet cast into prison. 25Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26And they came to John, and said to him, Rabbi, he that was with you beyond Jordan, to whom you bore witness, behold, the same baptizes, and all men come to him. 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29He that has the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30He must increase, but I must decrease. 31He that comes from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all. 32And what he has seen and heard, that he testifies; and no man receives his testimony. 33He that has received his testimony has set to his seal that God is true. 34For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God: for God gives not the Spirit by measure to him. 35The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand. 36He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God stays on him.
