Title: He Has Given to the Son To Have Life in Himself (John 5,26)
Author(s): VON WAHLDE, Urban C.
Volume: 85 Issue: 3 Date: 2004
John 5,26 explains that Jesus is able to give life because the Father has given him 'to have life in himself'. While previously one could surmise the meaning of this special mode of possessing life, Wis 15,16-17 provides positive proof of the verse’s meaning in its comparison of the ways God and humans possess life.
