Tools specific to Jhn 8:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:15

You judge by human standards.[fn] I judge no one.

“You are from below,” He told them, “I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

Therefore I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I am He,[fn] you will die in your sins.”

“I have many things to say and to judge about you, but the One who sent Me is true, and what I have heard from Him — these things I tell the world.”

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:29

The One who sent Me is with Me. He has not left Me alone, because I always do what pleases Him.”

  
Truth and Freedom

Tools specific to Jhn 8:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:30

As He was saying these things, many believed in Him.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:31

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word,[fn] you really are My disciples.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:32

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:33

“We are descendants[fn] of Abraham,” they answered Him, “and we have never been enslaved to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will become free’? ”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:34

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:35

A slave does not remain in the household forever, but a son does remain forever.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:36

Therefore, if the Son sets you free, you really will be free.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:37

I know you are descendants[fn] of Abraham, but you are trying to kill Me because My word[fn] is not welcome among you.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:38

I speak what I have seen in the presence of the Father;[fn] therefore, you do what you have heard from your father.”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:39

“Our father is Abraham! ” they replied.

“If you were Abraham’s children,” Jesus told them, “you would do what Abraham did.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:40

But now you are trying to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do this!

Tools specific to Jhn 8:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:41

You’re doing what your father does.”

“We weren’t born of sexual immorality,” they said. “We have one Father — God.”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:42

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I came from God and I am here. For I didn’t come on My own, but He sent Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:43

Why don’t you understand what I say? Because you cannot listen to[fn] My word.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:44

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:44

You are of your father the Devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature,[fn] because he is a liar and the father of liars.[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 8:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:45

Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:46

Who among you can convict Me of sin? If I tell the truth, why don’t you believe Me?

Tools specific to Jhn 8:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:47

The one who is from God listens to God’s words. This is why you don’t listen, because you are not from God.”

  
Jesus and Abraham

Tools specific to Jhn 8:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:48

The Jews responded to Him, “Aren’t we right in saying that You’re a Samaritan and have a demon? ”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:49

“I do not have a demon,” Jesus answered. “On the contrary, I honor My Father and you dishonor Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:50

I do not seek My glory; the One who seeks it also judges.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:51

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:51

I assure you: If anyone keeps My word, he will never see death — ever! ”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:52

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:52

Then the Jews said, “Now we know You have a demon. Abraham died and so did the prophets. You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste death — ever! ’

Tools specific to Jhn 8:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:53

Are You greater than our father Abraham who died? Even the prophets died. Who do You pretend to be? ”[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 8:54

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:54

“If I glorify Myself,” Jesus answered, “My glory is nothing. My Father — you say about Him, ‘He is our God’ — He is the One who glorifies Me.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:55

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:55

You’ve never known Him, but I know Him. If I were to say I don’t know Him, I would be a liar like you. But I do know Him, and I keep His word.

Tools specific to Jhn 8:56

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:56

Your father Abraham was overjoyed that he would see My day; he saw it and rejoiced.”

Tools specific to Jhn 8:57

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:57

The Jews replied, “You aren’t 50 years old yet, and You’ve seen Abraham? ”[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 8:58

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:58

Jesus said to them, “I assure you: Before Abraham was, I am.”[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 8:59

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 8:59

At that, they picked up stones to throw at Him. But Jesus was hidden[fn] and went out of the temple complex.[fn]
