10 When Jesus had raised Himself up 9and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers 1of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, g“Neither do I condemn you; go 2and hsin no more.”

“I Am the Light of the World”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, i“I am the light of the world. He who jfollows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, k“You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not 3true.”

14 Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but lyou do not know where I come from and where I am going. 15 mYou judge according to the flesh; nI judge no one. 16 And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for oI am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me. 17 pIt is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am One who bears witness of Myself, and qthe Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.”

19 Then they said to Him, “Where is Your Father?”

Jesus answered, r“You know neither Me nor My Father. sIf you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”

20 These words Jesus spoke in tthe treasury, as He taught in the temple; and uno one laid hands on Him, for vHis hour had not yet come.

21 Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and wyou will seek Me, and xwill die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come.”

22 So the Jews said, “Will He kill Himself, because He says, ‘Where I go you cannot come’?” 23 And He said to them, y“You are from beneath; I am from above. zYou are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 aTherefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; bfor if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”

25 Then they said to Him, “Who are You?”

And Jesus said to them, “Just what I chave been saying to you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but dHe who sent Me is true; and eI speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.”

27 They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father.

28 Then Jesus said to them, “When you flift 4up the Son of Man, gthen you will know that I am He, and hthat I do nothing of Myself; but ias My Father taught Me, I speak these things. 29 And jHe who sent Me is with Me. kThe Father has not left Me alone, lfor I always do those things that please Him.” 30 As He spoke these words, mmany believed in Him.

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you nabide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the otruth, and pthe truth shall make you free.”

33 They answered Him, q“We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, rwhoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And sa slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 tTherefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
