John 5:16-18

Moffatt(i) 16 And this was why the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did things like this on the sabbath. 17 The reply of Jesus was, "As my Father has continued working to this hour, so I work too." 18 But this only made the Jews more eager to kill him, because he not merely broke the sabbath but actually spoke of God as his own Father, thereby making himself equal to God.
