1 But Jesus went to athe Mount of Olives.
2 Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and aHe sat down and began to teach them.
3 The scribes and the Pharisees * brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court,
4 they * said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act.
5 “Now in the Law aMoses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?”
10 aStraightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”
14 Jesus answered and said to them, “aEven if I testify about Myself, My testimony is 1true, for I know bwhere I came from and where I am going; but cyou do not know where I come from or where I am going.
16 “But even aif I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me.
18 “I am He who testifies about Myself, and athe Father who sent Me testifies about Me.”
19 So they were saying to Him, “Where is Your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father; aif you knew Me, you would know My Father also.”
25 So they were saying to Him, “Who are You?” Jesus said to them, “1What have I been saying to you from the beginning?
30 As He spoke these things, amany came to believe in Him.
33 They answered Him, “aWe are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”
34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, aeveryone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
36 “So if the Son amakes you free, you will be free indeed.
44 “aYou are of byour father the devil, and cyou want to do the desires of your father. dHe was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because ethere is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks 1a lie, he fspeaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of 2lies.
45 “But because aI speak the truth, you do not believe Me.
46 “Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If aI speak truth, why do you not believe Me?
47 “aHe who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
49 Jesus answered, “I do not ahave a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me.
50 “But aI do not seek My glory; there is One who seeks and judges.
53 “Surely You aare not greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets died too; whom do You make Yourself out to be?”
57 aSo the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
