John:8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John:8:13
The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
John:8:14
Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
John:8:15
Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
John:8:16
And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
John:8:17
It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
John:8:18
I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
John:8:19
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
John:8:20
These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
John:8:21
Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
John:8:22
Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
John:8:23
And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
John:8:24
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
John:8:25
Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
John:8:26
I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
John:8:27
They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
John:8:28
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
John:8:29
And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
John:8:30
As he spake these words, many believed on him.
John:8:31
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
John:8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John:8:33
They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
John:8:34
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
John:8:35
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
John:8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
John:8:37
I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
John:8:38
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
John:8:39
They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
John:8:40
But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
John:8:41
Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
John:8:42
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
John:8:43
Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
John:8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John:8:45
And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
John:8:46
Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
John:8:47
He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
John:8:48
Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
John:8:49
Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
John:8:50
And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
John:8:51
Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
John:8:52
Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
John:8:53
Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
John:8:54
Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
John:8:55
Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
John:8:56
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
John:8:57
Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
John:8:58
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John:8:59
Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
