Some today insist that Jesus never claimed to be God, but when He said, “I and the Father are one,” the Jews knew exactly what He was claiming.

     22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch. 24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and my Father are one. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

1. O gladsome Light, O Grace 
Of God the Father’s Face, 
The eternal splendor wearing; 
Celestial, holy, blest, 
Our Savior Jesus Christ, 
Joyful in Thine appearing. 

2. Now, ere day fadeth quite, 
We see the evening light, 
Our wonted hymn outpouring, 
Father of might unknown, 
Thee, His incarnate Son, 
And Holy Ghost adoring. 

3. To Thee of right belongs 
All praise of holy songs, 
O Son of God, Life-giver; 
Thee, therefore, O Most High, 
The world doth glorify 
And shall exalt forever.
