                John 5:19-21
• “Jesus gave them this answer: ‘I tell you the truth,
  the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only
  what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the
  Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves
  the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your
  amazement he will show him even greater things
  than these. For just as the Father raises the dead and
  gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he
  is pleased to give it.’”
