John 8:28-30 The Passion Translation (TPT)

28 “You will know me as ‘I AM’ after you have lifted me up from the earth[a] as the Son of Man. Then you will realize that I do nothing on my own initiative, but I only speak the truth that the Father has revealed to me. 29 I am his messenger and he is always with me, for I only do that which delights his heart.”[b] 30 These words caused many respected Jews to believe in him.

Footnotes:

  1. John 8:28 There is a dual meaning in these words. To honor Jesus and exalt him reveals his true identity to our hearts. The word for “lifted up” can also mean “to exalt” and therefore “to honor.” However, Jesus was “lifted up” on a cross, suspended between heaven and earth, and died for the sins of all mankind. Both of these implications are found in these words of Jesus.
  2. John 8:29 The Aramaic is “I only do what adorns [beautifies] him.”
