“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:39 Search the Scriptures - A plain command to all men. In them ye are assured ye have eternal life - Ye know they show you the way to eternal life. And these very Scriptures testify of me.
Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures. Rather, as in the Revised Version, "Ye search the Scriptures" for eternal life. Yet they were full of testimony of Christ. Yet they turned away from him who is the life of whom their Scriptures spoke.
