John 10:22-42 English Standard Version (ESV)

I and the Father Are One

22 At that time the Feast of Dedication took place at Jerusalem. It was winter,23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the colonnade of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me,[a] is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken— 36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; 38 but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” 39 Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands.

40 He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. 41 And many came to him. And they said, “John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.” 42 And many believed in him there.

Psalm 22:9-18 English Standard Version (ESV)

Yet you are he who took me from the womb;

    you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.

10 

On you was I cast from my birth,

    and from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

11 

Be not far from me,

    for trouble is near,

    and there is none to help.

12 

Many bulls encompass me;

    strong bulls of Bashan surround me;

13 

they open wide their mouths at me,

    like a ravening and roaring lion.

14 

I am poured out like water,

    and all my bones are out of joint;

my heart is like wax;

    it is melted within my breast;

15 

my strength is dried up like a potsherd,

    and my tongue sticks to my jaws;

    you lay me in the dust of death.

16 

For dogs encompass me;

    a company of evildoers encircles me;

they have pierced my hands and feet[a]—

17 

I can count all my bones—

they stare and gloat over me;

18 

they divide my garments among them,

    and for my clothing they cast lots.
