The Sacred Bible: The Gospel of John
[John 8]
{8:1} But Jesus continued on to the Mount of Olives.

{8:2} And early in the morning, he went again to the temple; and all the people came to him. And sitting down, he taught them.

{8:3} Now the scribes and Pharisees brought forward a woman caught in adultery, and they stood her in front of them.

{8:4} And they said to him: “Teacher, this woman was just now caught in adultery.

{8:5} And in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such a one. Therefore, what do you say?”

{8:6} But they were saying this to test him, so that they might be able to accuse him. Then Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the earth.

{8:7} And then, when they persevered in questioning him, he stood upright and said to them, “Let whoever is without sin among you be the first to cast a stone at her.”

{8:8} And bending down again, he wrote on the earth.

{8:9} But upon hearing this, they went away, one by one, beginning with the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, with the woman standing in front of him.

{8:10} Then Jesus, raising himself up, said to her: “Woman, where are those who accused you? Has no one condemned you?”

{8:11} And she said, “No one, Lord.” Then Jesus said: “Neither will I condemn you. Go, and now do not choose to sin anymore.”

{8:12} Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me does not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

{8:13} And so the Pharisees said to him, “You offer testimony about yourself; your testimony is not true.”

{8:14} Jesus responded and said to them: “Even though I offer testimony about myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going.

{8:15} You judge according to the flesh. I do not judge anyone.

{8:16} And when I do judge, my judgment is true. For I am not alone, but it is I and he who sent me: the Father.

{8:17} And it is written in your law that the testimony of two men is true.

{8:18} I am one who offers testimony about myself, and the Father who sent me offers testimony about me.”

{8:19} Therefore, they said to him, “Where is your Father?” Jesus answered: “You know neither me, nor my Father. If you did know me, perhaps you would know my Father also.”

{8:20} Jesus spoke these words at the treasury, while teaching in the temple. And no one apprehended him, because his hour had not yet come.

{8:21} Therefore, Jesus again spoke to them: “I am going, and you shall seek me. And you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you are not able to go.”

{8:22} And so the Jews said, “Is he going to kill himself, for he said: ‘Where I am going, you are not able to go?’ ”

{8:23} And he said to them: “You are from below. I am from above. You are of this world. I am not of this world.

{8:24} Therefore, I said to you, that you will die in your sins. For if you will not believe that I am, you will die in your sin.”

{8:25} And so they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them: “The Beginning, who is also speaking to you.

{8:26} I have much to say about you and to judge. But he who sent me is true. And what I have heard from him, this I speak within the world.”

{8:27} And they did not realize that he was calling God his Father.

{8:28} And so Jesus said to them: “When you will have lifted up the Son of man, then you shall realize that I am, and that I do nothing of myself, but just as the Father has taught me, so do I speak.

{8:29} And he who sent me is with me, and he has not abandoned me alone. For I always do what is pleasing to him.”

{8:30} As he was speaking these things, many believed in him.

{8:31} Therefore, Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him: “If you will abide in my word, you will truly be my disciples.

{8:32} And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”

{8:33} They answered him: “We are the offspring of Abraham, and we have never been a slave to anyone. How can you say, ‘You shall be set free?’ ”

{8:34} Jesus answered them: “Amen, amen, I say to you, that everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

{8:35} Now the slave does not abide in the house for eternity. Yet the Son does abide in eternity.

{8:36} Therefore, if the Son has set you free, then you will truly be free.

{8:37} I know that you are sons of Abraham. But you are seeking to kill me, because my word has not taken hold in you.

{8:38} I speak what I have seen with my Father. And you do what you have seen with your father.”

{8:39} They responded and said to him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them: “If you are the sons of Abraham, then do the works of Abraham.

{8:40} But now you are seeking to kill me, a man who has spoken the truth to you, which I have heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.

{8:41} You do the works of your father.” Therefore, they said to him: “We were not born out of fornication. We have one father: God.”

{8:42} Then Jesus said to them: “If God were your father, certainly you would love me. For I proceeded and came from God. For I did not come from myself, but he sent me.

{8:43} Why do you not recognize my speech? It is because you are not able to hear my word.

{8:44} You are of your father, the devil. And you will carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning. And he did not stand in the truth, because the truth is not in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks it from his own self. For he is a liar, and the father of lies.

{8:45} But if I speak the truth, you do not believe me.

{8:46} Which of you can convict me of sin? If I speak the truth to you, why do you not believe me?

{8:47} Whoever is of God, hears the words of God. For this reason, you do not hear them: because you are not of God.”

{8:48} Therefore, the Jews responded and said to him, “Are we not correct in saying that you are a Samaritan, and that you have a demon?”

{8:49} Jesus responded: “I do not have a demon. But I honor my Father, and you have dishonored me.

{8:50} But I am not seeking my own glory. There is One who seeks and judges.

{8:51} Amen, amen, I say to you, if anyone will have kept my word, he will not see death for eternity.”

{8:52} Therefore, the Jews said: “Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham is dead, and the Prophets; and yet you say, ‘If anyone will have kept my word, he shall not taste death for eternity.’

{8:53} Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. So who do you make yourself to be?”

{8:54} Jesus responded: “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me. And you say about him that he is your God.

{8:55} And yet you have not known him. But I know him. And if I were to say that I do not know him, then I would be like you, a liar. But I know him, and I keep his word.

{8:56} Abraham, your father, rejoiced that he might see my day; he saw it and was glad.”

{8:57} And so the Jews said to him, “You have not yet reached fifty years, and you have seen Abraham?”

{8:58} Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I am.”

{8:59} Therefore, they took up stones to cast at him. But Jesus hid himself, and he departed from the temple.
