In John 5 Jesus clearly declared that He has the same authority as the Father. He does the same work as the Father, He raises people from the dead and gives life to whom He will. The Father has given judgment over to the Son.
In John 5:24 Jesus attributes His words with the Father and the work that they do to bring people from being spiritually dead to eternally alive.
