Greeks Desire to See Jesus His Discourse
Interwoven Gospels

Now there were some Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. So these came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida, of Galilee, and asked him, saying, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus." Philip cometh and telleth Andrew; and Andrew and Philip come and tell Jesus.

Then Jesus answered them, saying, "The hour hath come when the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say to you, Unless the grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it remaineth alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit. He that loveth his life, loseth it; and he that hateth his life in this world, shall keep it to life everlasting. If any one would serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there also shall My servant be. If any one serve Me, him will the Father honor. Now is My soul troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour? But for this cause I came to this hour. Father, glorify Thy name."

Whereupon there came a voice out of heaven, "I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." The multitude therefore that stood by heard it. Some said, "It thundered." Others said, "An angel hath spoken to him." Jesus answered and said, "This voice hath come, not for My sake, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself." But this He said, signifying by what kind of death He was about to die. The multitude therefore answered Him, "We have heard out of the law, that the Christ abideth forever; and why sayest Thou, 'The Son of man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of man?'

Jesus therefore said to them, "Yet a little while is the Light with you. Walk while ye have the Light, that darkness may not overtake you: and he that walketh in the darkness, knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have the Light, believe on the Light, that ye may become the sons of Light." These things spake Jesus, and departing, hid Himself from them.

And Jesus cried and said, "He that believeth on Me, belleveth not on Me, but on Him Who sent Me; and He that seeth Me, seeth Him Who sent Me. I have come a Light into the world, that every one that believeth on Me, may not abide in the darkness. And if any one heareth My words and keepeth them not, I do not judge him; for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth Me and receiveth not my words, hath One that judgeth him: the word which I spake, that shall judge him in the last day. Because I spake not from Myself; but the Father Who sent Me, Himself hath given Me commandment, what I should say and what I should speak: and I know that His commandment is life everlasting. What, therefore, I speak, as the Father hath said to Me, so I speak."
