The Book of John Chapter 8
8:1 Jesus went to the mount of Olives.
8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him; and he sat down, and taught them.
8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the middle,
8:4 They say to him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what say you?
8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the oldest, even to the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the middle.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said to her, Woman, where are those your accusers? has no man condemned you?
8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn you: go, and sin no more.
8:12 Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
8:13 The Pharisees therefore said to him, You bore record of yourself; your record is not true.
8:14 Jesus answered and said to them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know from where I came, and where I go; but you cannot tell from where I come, and where I go.
8:15 You judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.
8:19 Then said they to him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, You neither know me, nor my Father: if you had known me, you should have known my Father also.
8:20 These words spoke Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
8:21 Then said Jesus again to them, I go my way, and you shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: where I go, you cannot come.
8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he said, Where I go, you cannot come.
8:23 And he said to them, You are from beneath; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world.
8:24 I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins: for if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sins.
8:25 Then said they to him, Who are you? And Jesus said to them, Even the same that I said to you from the beginning.
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.
8:27 They understood not that he spoke to them of the Father.
8:28 Then said Jesus to them, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father has taught me, I speak these things.
8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
8:30 As he spoke these words, many believed on him.
8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how say you, You shall be made free?
8:34 Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin.
8:35 And the servant stays not in the house for ever: but the Son stays ever.
8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
8:37 I know that you are Abraham’s seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.
8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father.
8:39 They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.
8:40 But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
8:41 You do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42 Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
8:43 Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word.
8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stayed not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
8:45 And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not.
8:46 Which of you convicts me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?
8:47 He that is of God hears God’s words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.
8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said to him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan, and have a demon?
8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a demon; but I honor my Father, and you do dishonor me.
8:50 And I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeks and judges.
8:51 Truly, truly, I say to you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
8:52 Then said the Jews to him, Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you say, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom make you yourself?
8:54 Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom you say, that he is your God:
8:55 Yet you have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like to you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
8:57 Then said the Jews to him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?
8:58 Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham was, I am.
8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the middle of them, and so passed by.
