“The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.” And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”

Luke 22:19-20 (ESV)

John 1:1-5, 14 (ESV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

John 3:14-18 (ESV)

As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

John 5:25-30 (ESV)

“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment. I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.”

John 8:24-29 (ESV)

“I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.” So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning. I have much to say about you and much to judge, but he who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.” They did not understand that he had been speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”

John 16:33-17:4 (ESV)

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.”

John 17:20-23 (ESV)

“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.

You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’

Acts 8:12 (ESV)

But when they believed Philip as he preached good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (ESV)

“Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.”

1 Corinthians 15:42-45 (ESV)

“So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.”

Romans 5:18-19 (ESV)

Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Philippians 2:8-11 (ESV)

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Romans 10:9 (ESV)

“if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

1 Corinthians 8:4b-6 (ESV)

“There is no God but one. For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”— yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.”

1 Timothy 2:3-6 (ESV)

This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.

Acts 2:38-39 (ESV)

Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake, he is the one who will save it. For what does it profit a person if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of that person will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels.

In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and what God was the word was. This word was in the beginning with God.

John 3:14-18 (REV)

And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so it was necessary that the Son of Man was lifted up, in order that whoever believes in him will have life in the age to come. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have life in the age to come. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

When he comes, he will tell us everything.” Jesus says to her, “I who speak to you am he.””

John 5:25-30 (REV)

Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour comes, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who heard will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so He has also given to the Son to have life in himself. And he gave him authority to execute judgment because he is the Son of Man. Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and will come out; those who have done good, to the Resurrection of Life, and those who made a practice of doing worthless things, to the Resurrection of Condemnation. I am not able to do anything on my own. As I hear, I judge. And my judgment is righteous because I do not seek to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.

John 8:24-29 (REV)

“That is why I said to you that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I am the one, you will die in your sins.” Therefore they said to him, “You—who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Altogether, I am what I am telling you. I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but he who sent me is true, and what I have heard from him—these things I speak to the world.” They did not perceive that he was speaking to them of the Father. So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one. And I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things. And he who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”

Glorify your Son so that the Son can glorify you, just as you gave him authority over all flesh so that he could give life in the age to come to all those you have given him. And this is life in the age to come, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on the earth, having accomplished the work that you have given me to do.

John 17:20-23 (REV)

“I am not asking for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they can all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me and I in union with you, that they also can be in union with us, so that the world may believe that you sent me. And the glory that you have given me, I have given to them, so that they can be one, just as we are one; I in union with them, and you in union with me, so that they can be perfected into one so that the world can know that you sent me, and loved them just as you loved me.

Repent therefore, and return to God, so that your sins are wiped clean, so that seasons of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord, and so that he sends the Christ, who has been appointed for you, that is, Jesus. Heaven must receive him until the time all things are restored—God has spoken about this by the mouth of his holy prophets who have been from ancient times. Indeed, Moses said, The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You must listen to him in everything that he says to you. And it will be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet, will be utterly destroyed from among the People.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (REV)

“Now brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, and by which you are being made whole if you hold on firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you—unless you believed without giving it due consideration. For I delivered to you as of first importance that which also I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures

1 Corinthians 15:42-45 (REV)

“So it is with the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a soul body, it is raised a spiritual body. So also it is written, the first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam has become a life-giving spirit.”

Romans 5:18-19 (REV)

Philippians 2:8-11 (REV)

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! And therefore God raised him to the highest place of honor and gave him the name that is above every name, in order that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow—in heaven and on earth and under the earth— and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

1 Timothy 2:3-6 (REV)

This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to come to a full knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and mankind, a man, Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all—the testimony given at the proper time.

Acts 2:38-39 (REV)

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the holy spirit. For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all who are far off, even to as many as the Lord our God will call.”

OGF, One God, the Father, Translation

Mark 1:14-15 (OGF)

After John was put in prison, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the Gospel of God. “The time is fulfilled,” he said. “The Kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe in that Gospel.”

Luke 4:43 (OGF)

But he said to them, “I must preach the Gospel about the Kingdom of God to other towns also, because I was commissioned for this purpose.

Luke 8:1 (OGF)

Jesus traveled through the towns and villages, publicizing and preaching the Gospel about the Kingdom of God. With him were the twelve disciples.

Luke 9:22-26 (OGF)

“The Son of Man must suffer many things,” he said. “He will be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and religious teachers, and be killed and be raised up on the third day.” Jesus said to everyone, “If anyone wants to follow me, you must deny yourself, pick up your cross daily, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What use is it for anyone to gain the whole world and then lose himself Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

Luke 9:35 (OGF)

And a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, my chosen one. Listen to him.”

Luke 16:16 (OGF)

“The time of the Law and the prophets lasted until John; from then on the Gospel about the Kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is pushing hard to get in.”

Luke 18:31-33 (OGF)

Jesus took the twelve aside and said to them, “Listen, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled: He will be handed over to the Gentiles, and will be mocked, abused, and spit on. After they have beaten him they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise again.”

Luke 22:19-20 (OGF)

He took some bread, and after giving thanks, he broke it and gave it to them. “This is my body given for you; remember me by doing this,” he said to them. In the same way he took the cup after supper and said, “This cup is the New Covenant ratified by my blood which is being poured out for you.”

John 1:1-5, 14 (OGF)

In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was fully expressive of God Himself. This was with God in the beginning. Everything came into being through it, and without it nothing of what came into being existed. In it there was life, and that life was the light of man. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overwhelm it… And the word came into existence, a human being, and tabernacled among us, and we have beheld his glory, the glory such as a uniquely begotten Son enjoys from his Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:29b (OGF)

“This is the lamb of God, the one who removes the sin of the world.”

John 3:14-18 (OGF)

And just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, in the same way the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that all who believe in him may gain the life of the Age to Come. “God loved the world in this way: that He gave His uniquely begotten Son, so that every person who believes in him should not perish but have the life of the Age to Come. For God did not send His Son into the world for the purpose of condemning the world, but so that the world might be rescued through him. The person who believes in him is not condemned. But the one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the revelation and whole agenda of God’s uniquely begotten Son.

John 3:35-36 (OGF)

“The Father loves the Son and has given him power over everything. The person who believes in the Son has the Life of the Age to Come. The one who refuses to obey the Son will not see that life. Rather, the righteous fury of God hangs over him.”

John 4:23-26 (OGF)

“Yet a time is coming, and has now come, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is
looking for such people to worship Him. God communicates through spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him on the basis of spirit and truth.” The woman said, “I know that the Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will tell us everything.” Jesus replied “I am he, that Messiah, the one speaking to you.”

John 5:25-30 (OGF)

“I am telling you the truth: the hour is coming, and now already is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will come back to life. Just as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted the Son to have life in himself, and He has given him authority to carry out judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear the voice of the Son of Man. They will come out of their graves, the ones who have done good to a resurrection of life and those who have practiced evil to a resurrection of judgment. I can do nothing on my own authority. As I hear I judge, and my judgment is fair, because I do not seek my own will but the will of the One who commissioned me as His agent.”

John 8:24-29 (OGF)

“That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I am he, the Messiah, you will die in your sins.” They asked him, “Who are you?” Jesus replied, “Precisely what I have been telling you from the very beginning. I have a lot more things to say to you, but the One who commissioned me is true, and what I have heard from him — that is what I am announcing to the world.” They did not know that he was speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said this, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, the Messiah, and that I do nothing on my own, but just as the Father taught me, so I speak.”

John 8:42 (OGF)

Jesus said to them, “If God really was your Father, you would love me, because I originated from God and I have come here. I did not come on my own, but He commissioned me.

John 8:54 (OGF)

Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself my glory amounts to nothing. My Father — of whom you say He is our God — He is the one who glorifies me.

John 16:33-17:4 (OGF)

“I have told you these things so that in me you would have peace. You will have suffering in this world, but be full of courage. I have conquered the world.” Jesus spoke these words and then looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has arrived. Glorify Your Son so that the Son may glorify You, just as You gave him authority over all mankind, so that he may grant the Life of the Age to Come to all You have given him. This is the core and essence of the Life of the Age to Come, that they may know You, the only one who is true God, and the one You have commissioned, Jesus Messiah.”

John 17:20-23 (OGF)

“I am not praying only for these but also for the ones who are going to believe in me in the future through their Gospel message. I am praying that they all may be one in mind and purpose as You, Father, are in me and I am in You. May they also be one in mind and purpose in us, so that the world may believe that You commissioned me. “I have given them the same glory which you have given me. I want them all to be one, just as we are one in mind and purpose; in them, and You in me, so that they may be brought to maturity in one mind, that the world may come to know that You sent me and that You loved them just as You loved me.

John 20:17 (OGF)

Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to me; I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father — to my God and your God.”

John 20:31 (OGF)

The ones recorded here are to persuade and convince you to believe that the Messiah is Jesus, the Son of God, and by believing this you may gain Life in Jesus’ name.

Acts 2:36 (OGF)

“Let the whole house of Israel therefore know with absolute certainty that God has made him both lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

Acts 3:13 (OGF)

“The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus.”

Acts 3:18-23 (OGF)

“But the things which God foretold through all the prophets, that His Messiah would suffer, He has in this way fulfilled. Repent therefore and turn back, so that your sins may be blotted out and so that there may come times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord, and that He will send Jesus, the Messiah appointed for you before. Heaven must retain him until the times of restoration of all things, which God spoke about long ago through His holy prophets. Moses said, ‘The Lord God will put on the scene of history a prophet like me from among your brothers. You are to listen to him, everything he says to you. Everyone who will not listen to that prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.’”

Acts 5:30-31 (OGF)

“The God of our ancestors resurrected Jesus, whom you had killed by hanging him on a cross. He is the one God exalted to His right hand to be a Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.”

Acts 8:12 (OGF)

“But when they believed Philip heralding the Gospel about the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus the Messiah, they were being baptized, both men and woman.”

Acts 10:42-43 (OGF)

“And he commanded us to herald to the people, and to testify solemnly that this is the one appointed by God as the judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him, that through his name everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins.”

Acts 17:30-31 (OGF)

“So then God overlooked the times of ignorance, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice through a man He has appointed, and He gave proof to everyone by resurrecting him from the dead.”

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (OGF)

“Now I declare to you, brothers and sisters, the Gospel I preached to you, which you also received, in which you also stand firm. It is by this Gospel that you are being saved if you hold firmly to the word which I preached to you as Gospel — unless you believed in vain. I delivered to you, among matters of first importance, what I also received: that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures; that he was buried and that he was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures.”

1 Corinthians 15:42-45 (OGF)

“So it is with the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown perishable; it is resurrected imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So as it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living person”; the last Adam became a life-imparting spirit.”

Romans 5:18-19 (OGF)

“Therefore, just as through one sin all were condemned, in the same way through one right act all may be made right leading to Life. Just as through one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, in the same way through one man’s obedience many will be made right.”

Philippians 2:8-11 (OGF)

“And appearing to be just an ordinary man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death— even to death on the cross. For this reason God exalted him to the highest position and gave him the authority which is above every authority, so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow in reverence — of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth. This is so that every tongue should confess that Jesus Messiah is lord to the glory of the One God, who is the Father.”

Romans 10:9 (OGF)

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

1 Corinthians 8:4b-6 (OGF)

“There is no God except for the one God. Even though there are some called “gods,” either in heaven or on earth — as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords” — for us there is only one God, who is the Father, from whom are all things, and we for Him; and one lord Messiah Jesus, through whom are all things, and we are through him.”

1 Timothy 2:3-6 (OGF)

“These prayers are good and pleasing to God our Savior, as He desires all people to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth — namely that there is one God and one mediator between that one God and humanity, Messiah Jesus, who is himself human. He gave himself as a ransom for all, a testimony at his appointed time.”

Acts 2:38-39 (OGF)

Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of holy spirit. This promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off — as many as the Lord our God will invite to Himself.”
