First, take the full context:

John 5:20) I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who hath sent me. 31) If I testify concerning myself, my testimony is not true. 32) There is another that testifieth concerning me, and I know that the testimony which he beareth concerning me is true. 33) Ye sent to John, and he testified to the truth. 34) But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye may be saved.

35) He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36) But I have greater testimony than [that] of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear testimony concerning me, that the Father hath sent me. 37) And the Father himself who hath sent me, hath borne testimony concerning me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38) And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. 39) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40) And ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.

One of the prophecies that points to Yeshua and how He is the ONLY One that can fulifll them.

Isaiah 60:1) Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2)For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD will arise upon thee, and his glory will be seen upon thee.

3) And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

4) Lift up thy eyes around, and see: all they assemble themselves, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at [thy] side.

5) Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thy heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted to thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come to thee.

6) The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall show forth the praises of the LORD.

7) All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to thee: they shall come up with acceptance on my altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

8) Who [are] these [that] fly as a cloud, and as doves to their windows?

9) Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
