“For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:21 For - He declares which are those greater works, raising the dead, and judging the world. The power of quickening whom he will follows from the power of judging. These two, quickening and judging, are proposed #John 5:21|,22. The acquittal of believers, which presupposes judgment, is treated of #John 5:24|; the quickening some of the dead, #John 5:25|; and the general resurrection, John 5:28.
