Gospel According to John
8:1 but Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 8:2And early in the morning he came
again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and
taught them. 8:3And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery;
and having set her in the midst, 8:4they say unto him, Teacher, this woman hath
been taken in adultery, in the very act. 8:5Now in the law Moses commanded us to
stone such: what then sayest thou of her? 8:6And this they said, trying him, that
they might have whereof to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his
finger wrote on the ground. 8:7But 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. 8:8And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the
ground. 8:9And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the
eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman, where she
was, in the midst. 8:10And Jesus lifted up himself, and said unto her, Woman,
where are they? did no man condemn thee? 8:11And she said, No man, Lord. And
Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go thy way; from henceforth sin no more.
8:12Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he
that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.
8:13The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest witness of thyself; thy
witness is not true. 8:14Jesus answered and said unto them, Even if I bear witness of
myself, my witness is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye
know not whence I come, or whither I go. 8:15Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no
man. 8:16Yea and if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I and the
Father that sent me. 8:17Yea and in your law it is written, that the witness of two
men is true. 8:18I am he that beareth witness of myself, and the Father that sent me
beareth witness of me. 8:19They said therefore unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus
answered, Ye know neither me, nor my Father: if ye knew me, ye would know
my Father also. 8:20These words spake he in the treasury, as he taught in the
temple: and no man took him; because his hour was not yet come. 8:21He said
therefore again unto them, I go away, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your
sin: whither I go, ye cannot come. 8:22The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself,
that he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come? 8:23And he said unto them, Ye are
from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 8:24I
said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe that I
am he, ye shall die in your sins. 8:25They said therefore unto him, Who art thou?
Jesus said unto them, Even that which I have also spoken unto you from the
beginning. 8:26I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you: howbeit
he that sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these speak I unto
the world. 8:27They perceived not that he spake to them of the Father. 8:28Jesus
therefore said, 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 the Father taught me, I speak these
things. 8:29And he that sent me is with me; he hath not left me alone; for I do
always the things that are pleasing to him. 8:30As he spake these things, many
believed on him. 8:31Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If ye
abide in my word, then are ye truly my disciples; 8:32and ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free. 8:33They answered unto him, We are Abraham's
seed, and have never yet been in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall
be made free? 8:34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Every one
that committeth sin is the bondservant of sin. 8:35And the bondservant abideth not
in the house for ever: the son abideth for ever. 8:36If therefore the Son shall make
you free, ye shall be free indeed. 8:37I know that ye are Abraham's seed: yet ye seek
to kill me, because my word hath not free course in you. 8:38I speak the things
which I have seen with my Father: and ye also do the things which ye heard from
your father. 8:39They answered and said unto him, Our father is Abraham. Jesus
saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of
Abraham. 8:40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which
I heard from God: this did not Abraham. 8:41Ye do the works of your father. They
said unto him, We were not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
8:42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came
forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.
8:43Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word.
8:44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth 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 thereof. 8:45But because I say the truth, ye believe me not.
8:46Which of you convicteth me of sin? If I say truth, why do ye not believe me?
8:47He that is of God heareth the words of God: for this cause ye hear them not,
because ye are not of God. 8:48The Jews answered and said unto him, Say we not
well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a demon? 8:49Jesus answered, I have not a
demon; but I honor my Father, and ye dishonor me. 8:50But I seek not mine own
glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 8:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a
man keep my word, he shall never see death. 8:52The Jews said unto him, Now we
know that thou hast a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If
a man keep my word, he shall never taste of death. 8:53Art thou greater than our
father Abraham, who died? and the prophets died: whom makest thou thyself?
8:54Jesus answered, If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father that
glorifieth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God; 8:55and ye have not known him:
but I know him; and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be like unto you, a
liar: but I know him, and keep his word. 8:56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see
my day; and he saw it, and was glad. 8:57The Jews therefore said unto him, Thou art
not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 8:58Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was born, I am. 8:59They took up
stones therefore to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple.
