John 5:17-37 A Revelation Of Jesus Regarding Himself, in the King James and Alternate with Words Pictures Translations

John 5:17 - 37

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue
Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow
My Comments in Green.

17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.     (KJV)

17)    Then Jesus discerningly answered them,
                'The Father of Me   works - labors - actively exerts (performance)
                  until - unto - as long as
                  this present moment - now.

                  And I - I also     work - labor - actively exert (performance).'

18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.    (KJV)

18)   Through this,  accordingly - therefore 
          the Judeans - the Jews   [of the Hebrews - of the 13 tribes of Israel]
          [all]  (the more) sought and strove to find  (cause, an excuse)
          to immediately kill Him - to immediately put Him to death,
          because He certainly not only loosed - unbound 
          the Shabbat - the Sabbath;
          but also laid down definite words and called GOD
          His own Father,
          making - producing - causing Himself  (to be)
          equal in quality and equal in dignity to GOD.

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.    (KJV)

19)    Accordingly - Therefore,   Jesus - Yeshua
          discerningly judged - discerningly answered 
          and said to them,
               'Amen.  Amen.  - So be it.  So be it.
                I lay down definite words to you.
                The Son is certainly not able - capable - empowered 
                to make - form - produce - bring about - do   
                from Himself      perhaps if may not / unless - except
                He may (with the eyes) see and perceive and understand
                what the Father is 
                doing - bringing about - causing - making,
                because whatever that One  
                does - brings about - causes - makes,
                these things also the Son   
                does - brings about - causes - makes
                in equally like manner - likewise.

20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.   (KJV)

20)    Because the Father dearly loves  the Son,
           and shows - exhibits - displays for view  to Him
           all things which He does - brings about - causes - makes.

           And greater and more ancient works of performance 
           (than) these will He show - exhibit - display to Him,
           in order that you may be struck with 
           (an admiring) wonder and astonishment.

21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.    (KJV)

21)   For as much - Just as - Exactly like 
         the Father raises up (as though from sleep)  
         the corpse - the dead     and makes alive
         [and quivering as though a catch of living 
          fish or living animal game];
          so this One, the Son also,  
          whom He wills - intends - has in mind - desires,
          He makes alive  
          [and quivering as though a catch of living fish
           or living animal game].

22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:    (KJV)

22)    Because the Father certainly not 
           separates - discerns - distinguishes - Judges.

           Not then, but all the Judgement
           He has of His own good will and accord
           given to the Son:

23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.    (KJV)

23)    In order that   all may 
           honor - reverence - value as as an esteemed prize
           the Son,  according as  they 
           honor - reverence - value as as an esteemed prize
           the Father.

           He (who) may not  
           honor - reverence - value as as an esteemed prize
           the Son,  certainly does not 
           honor - reverence - value as as an esteemed prize
           the Father,
           the One having dispatched - sent   Him.

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.    (KJV)

24)   Amen.  Amen.  - So be it.  So be it.
          I lay down definite words and say to you,
          that listening intently to and hearing the intelligent words of Me
          and trusting - believing  the (One) having dispatched - sent Me,
          has - holds - possess and continues to possess 
          perpetual eternal life;
          and shall certainly not come into Judgement,
          but has passed -  but has traversed and gone over
          out of death into eternal life.

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.    (KJV)

25)    Amen.  Amen.  - So be it.  So be it.
           I lay down definite words and say to you,
           that an hour is coming (so as to make a public appearance),
           and now - at [from] this present time [forth], it is
           at what time then the corpse - the dead 
           will intently  the Voice of the Son of GOD,
           and those hearing     will have life - will live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;    (KJV)

26)    Because    as much - just as - even as    the Father
           has - holds - possesses and continues to possess  
           eternal life in Himself,   thus this One in this manner
           gave of His own good will and accord  also to the Son 
           to have - hold - possess and continue to possess 
           eternal life in Himself.

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.    (KJV)

27)    He also of His own good will and accord gave 
           the power - permission - authority  to do or not do,
           and Judgement to do - make - bring about - cause - perform,
           because  He is (the) Son of Man   [the Christ - the Messiah].

28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,     (KJV)

28)   Do not be struck with wonder and astonishment (at) this:
          because (there) comes an hour in which all those in 
          the memorial tombs - the sepulchers 
          will listen intently and will hear the Voice of Him,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.   (KJV)

29)    And will go out and come forth,
           those having done - worked - performed - brought about
           the good - useful - virtuous (and spiritually profitable)
           into a standing (physical) Restoration - a Resurrection
           of eternal life.

           Then those, having practiced repeatedly and habitually 
           the vile - evil - wicked - depraved - corrupt
           into a standing (physical) Restoration - a Resurrection
           of Judgement - of separation and condemnation / punishment.

[The righteous will be given perfect bodies of perpetual perfection in form and health, probably likened to teenagers of various years within that range, while the damned get (if I understand this correctly) the most diseased and rotting state their bodies had for their resurrection of condemnation or punishment, in which their disbelief in the Son of GOD is absolutely and bodily manifest before all as a testimony against them, before being bound hand and foot and cast away into the Lake of Fire by the Angels  (Cf. Matthew 13:47-50, 22:13, 25:31-46;  Revelation 20:11-15) at the orders issued by the Son of GOD,  which the Father has already ordained as pre-approved beforehand.  -- Brianroy]

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.    (KJV)

30)    I certainly am not able - capable - empowered 
           to do - make - form - produce - bring about    from Myself,
           not even one (thing).

          According as I (intently) hear,  I Judge;
          and My Judgement is righteously just,
          because I certainly do not seek and strive to find
          My own will  [to bring about My own good pleasure],
          but the  will - intent - desire - purpose in mind
          of the (One)  sending - dispatching Me:  Father.

31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.    (KJV)

31)   If perhaps I  witness - testify   round about - concerning 
          Myself,  the witness - testimony of Me is certainly not
          the True Reality (of things as they really are). 

32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.    (KJV)

32)   There is another of a like kind    that witnesses - testifies 
          round about - concerning Me,
          and I awaringly know that the witness - testimony  which he
          witnesses - testifies concerning Me 
          is the Truth - the True Reality (of things as they really are).

33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.    (KJV)

33)    You have sent forth out up alongside to John,
           and he has witnessed - testified 
           to the Truth - to the True Reality (of things as they really are).

34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.    (KJV)

34)    I then, certainly do not   accept - receive - take and lay hold of
          the witness - testimony  near to man,
          but I lay down definite words and say  these things
          in order that you may be saved - delivered 
          [from destruction and loss].

35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.    (KJV)

35)    That one there was a fiery burning and shining forth - illuminating
           [olive oil]  lamp.

           You then, were willing - intending - desiring - having in mind
           to leap for joy and skip in delight - to dance for joy - to 
           exult or rejoice
           up alongside for an hour in the illuminating light of him.

36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.   (KJV)

36)     Then I have - hold - possess and continue to possess 
            a more ancient and greater   witness - testimony
            than of John, 
            because of the work performances which the Father has
            of His own good will and accord given Me,
            in order that I may make them  complete - perfect - finished.

            The work performances themselves that I do,
            witness - testify  round about - concerning Me,
            because / that    the Father, Me has sent forth out.

37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.    (KJV)

37)     And Father, He having sent forth and dispatched Me,
            He has testified - witnessed   round about - concerning  Me.

            Certainly not even the Voice of Him have you heard,
             never yet at any time;
             certainly not even His external form have you seen."

[My comment on verse 37:  Briefly.  The last words here of Jesus - Yeshua were explosive as mind blowing as though being in the nuclear blast zone just outside of ground zero in their shock to the one seeing and hearing.  It was beyond comprehension to all living in the First Century A.D. had known and been taught, and it was a lost knowledge once known to their forefathers.  Adam in the Garden of Eden (e.g. Genesis 3:9-10) who talked with the LORD GOD (not to mention regularly seeing Him, Enoch who walked with GOD and was snatched away by GOD (Genesis 5:24), Noah who talked to GOD (Genesis 6:13 ff.), Abram who talked with GOD (Genesis 15:1 ff.) and seen the fiery furnace of his presence between the two halves of the sacrifice (Genesis 15:17), Jacob who physically wrestled with GOD (Genesis 32:24-30), Moses who spoke with GOD (Exodus 3:4 - 4:17), all the people of Israel who heard GOD's voice at Mount Sinai and lamented and begged not to hear it for fear of perishing (Exodus 20:19, context in Exodus 19:17 - 20:22), all these heard and/or  saw GOD, but not GOD the Father.  And we haven't even addressed other instances outside the first 2 books of the Old Testament.  
       In other words, Jesus - Yeshua was revealing to a propagandized generation that their GOD is more than a single person, and yet a single being and single entity.    The 70 elders of Israel and others with Moses who ascended the Mount who saw the reflection of GOD in the crystal clear ground (Exodus 24:1,9-11) or Moses seeing the literal form of GOD's back parts in the after-glow of his glory or lingering stream of light (Exodus 33:17-23), these did NOT see GOD the Father, and yet they saw GOD.   And who did they see and hear?  God the Son, He standing now before them clothed in humanity as He said He would in the prophecies of the Law and the Prophets.  All of a sudden, passages such as Malachi 3:1
   "Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare 
    the way before Me:
    and the Lord  whom ye seek, 
    shall suddenly come to His Temple,
    even the Messenger of the Covenant
    whom ye delight in:
     behold, He shall come, 
     saith the LORD of Hosts."  (King James Version)

were now fulfilled right before their eyes, and it was difficult to believe, because they had been reared up to believe Oral Traditions and conflicting legal rulings of rabbinic sages of times near to them over the Scriptures, the words of GOD and even the words of Moses which they alleged to elevate even more highly than GOD Himself...and that sinful and erring method was the problem.  It is a problem that permeates and corrupts a majority of (but not all)  Jewish minds today, in which Talmud and personal rabbis must be believed first over that of Scripture, and that is an egregious error perpetuated by stubbornness and idolatry by means of "tradition" on their part down to this day.
