Atheist Advocate (AA): John 5:33,34 says that Christ received not testimony from man, Yet, later on in John 15:27, Christ did receive testimony from man. What gives?

John 5:33,34 - "33 “You have sent to John and he has testified to the truth. 34 Not that I accept human testimony; but I mention it that you may be saved."

John 15:27 - "27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning."

Atheist Advocate (AA): So is Christ about peace or not. Why does your book say both?

Christ's mission was peace [Luke 2:13,14]
"13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Christ's mission was not peace [Matt 10:34]
"34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

Atheist Advocate (AA): Doesn't Christ admit that his witness of himself is true, and then later that it's untrue?

Christ's witness of himself is true [John 8:14-18]
"14 Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. 15 You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true. 18 I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me.”

Christ's witness of himself is not true [John 5:31]
"31 “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true."
