Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:7 - And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:8 - And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:9 - But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:10 - Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:13 - So the Pharisees said to him, “You are bearing witness about yourself; your testimony is not true.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:14 - Jesus answered, “Even if I do bear witness about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:15 - You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:16 - Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is true, for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father[fn] who sent me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:17 - In your Law it is written that the testimony of two people is true.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:18 - I am the one who bears witness about myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:20 - These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:21 - So he said to them again, “I am going away, and you will seek me, and you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:22 - So the Jews said, “Will he kill himself, since he says, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come’?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:23 - He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:24 - I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:25 - So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:26 - I have much to say about you and much to judge, but he who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:27 - They did not understand that he had been speaking to them about the Father.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:28 - So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:31 - So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:32 - and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:33 - They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:34 - Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave[fn] to sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:35 - The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:36 - So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:37 - I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:38 - I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:39 - They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:40 - but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:42 - Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:44 - You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:45 - But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:46 - Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:47 - Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:48 - The Jews answered him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:49 - Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:50 - Yet I do not seek my own glory; there is One who seeks it, and he is the judge.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:51 - Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:52 - The Jews said to him, “Now we know that you have a demon! Abraham died, as did the prophets, yet you say, ‘If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:53 - Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died! Who do you make yourself out to be?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:54 - Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God.’[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:55 - But you have not known him. I know him. If I were to say that I do not know him, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and I keep his word.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:56 - Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 8:57 - So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?”[fn]
