043:008:001
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.


043:008:002
And early in the morning he came again into the temple,
and all the people came unto him;
and he sat down,
and taught them.


043:008:003
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery;
and when they had set her in the midst,


043:008:004
They say unto him,
Master,
this woman was taken in adultery,
in the very act.


043:008:005
Now Moses in the law commanded us,
that such should be stoned:
but what sayest thou?


043:008:006
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.


043:008:007
So when they continued asking him,
he lifted up himself,
and said unto them,
He that is without sin among you,
let him first cast a stone at her.


043:008:008
And again he stooped down,
and wrote on the ground.


043:008:009
And they which heard it,
being convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one,
beginning at the eldest,
even unto the last:
and Jesus was left alone,
and the woman standing in the midst.


043:008:010
When Jesus had lifted up himself,
and saw none but the woman,
he said unto her,
Woman,
where are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?


043:008:011
She said,
No man,
Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go,
and sin no more.


043:008:012
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.


043:008:013
The Pharisees therefore said unto him,
Thou bearest record of thyself;
thy record is not true.


043:008:014
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.


043:008:015
Ye judge after the flesh;
I judge no man.


043:008:016
And yet if I judge,
my judgment is true:
for I am not alone,
but I and the Father that sent me.


043:008:017
It is also written in your law,
that the testimony of two men is true.


043:008:018
I am one that bear witness of myself,
and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.


043:008:019
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.


043:008:020
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.


043:008:021
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.


043:008:022
Then said the Jews,
Will he kill himself?
because he saith,
Whither I go,
ye cannot come.


043:008:023
And he said unto them,
Ye are from beneath;
I am from above:
ye are of this world;
I am not of this world.


043:008:024
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.


043:008:025
Then said they unto him,
Who art thou?
And Jesus saith unto them,
Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.


043:008:026
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.


043:008:027
They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.


043:008:028
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.


043:008:029
And he that sent me is with me:
the Father hath not left me alone;
for I do always those things that please him.


043:008:030
As he spake these words,
many believed on him.


043:008:031
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,
If ye continue in my word,
then are ye my disciples indeed;


043:008:032
And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.


043:008:033
They answered him,
We be Abraham's seed,
and were never in bondage to any man:
how sayest thou,
Ye shall be made free?


043:008:034
Jesus answered them,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.


043:008:035
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever:
but the Son abideth ever.


043:008:036
If the Son therefore shall make you free,
ye shall be free indeed.


043:008:037
I know that ye are Abraham's seed;
but ye seek to kill me,
because my word hath no place in you.


043:008:038
I speak that which I have seen with my Father:
and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.


043:008:039
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.


043:008:040
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.


043:008:041
Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to him,
We be not born of fornication;
we have one Father,
even God.


043:008:042
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.


043:008:043
Why do ye not understand my speech?
even because ye cannot hear my word.


043:008:044
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.


043:008:045
And because I tell you the truth,
ye believe me not.


043:008:046
Which of you convinceth me of sin?
And if I say the truth,
why do ye not believe me?


043:008:047
He that is of God heareth God's words:
ye therefore hear them not,
because ye are not of God.


043:008:048
Then answered the Jews,
and said unto him,
Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan,
and hast a devil?


043:008:049
Jesus answered,
I have not a devil;
but I honour my Father,
and ye do dishonour me.


043:008:050
And I seek not mine own glory:
there is one that seeketh and judgeth.


043:008:051
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
If a man keep my saying,
he shall never see death.


043:008:052
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.


043:008:053
Art thou greater than our father Abraham,
which is dead?
and the prophets are dead:
whom makest thou thyself?


043:008:054
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:


043:008:055
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.


043:008:056
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:
and he saw it,
and was glad.


043:008:057
Then said the Jews unto him,
Thou art not yet fifty years old,
and hast thou seen Abraham?


043:008:058
Jesus said unto them,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
Before Abraham was,
I am.


043:008:059
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.
