John 5:30 FIRST PERSON Transition

Jesus has referred to Himself in the third person, using the titles “Son of God” and “Son of Man.” As He transitions from this portion of the speech (Jn. 5:19–30) to the next (Jn. 5:31–47), He restates His original claim, “The Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing” (v. 19), only now in the first person (“I”) Jn. 5;30,31 . He was making these claims about Himself.
