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. JH 8:12 JESUS Savior APPLY Rewards The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of [testify about] thyself; thy record is not true [valid]. JH 8:13 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence [where] I came [from], and whither I go [where I am going]; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. JH 8:14 Ye judge after the flesh [by human standards WU]; I judge no man. JH 8:15 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true [right WU]: for I am not alone, but I and [am with] the Father that sent me. JH 8:16 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true [valid]. JH 8:17 I am one that bear witness of [testifies about] myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. JH 8:18 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 [would] have known my Father also. JH 8:19 These words spake Jesus in the treasury [place where offerings were put WU], as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on [seized WU] him; for his hour [time WU] was not yet come. JH 8:20

Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way [am going away], and ye shall seek [look for WU] me, and shall die in your sins: whither [where] I go, ye cannot come. JH 8:21 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. JH 8:22 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. JH 8:23 JESUS From Father I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he [the one I claim to be WU], ye shall die in your sins. JH 8:24 BELIEVE Save Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that [Just what] I said unto you from the beginning. JH 8:25 I have many things to say and to judge of [concerning] you: but he that sent me is true [truthful WU]; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of [from] him. JH 8:26 PRINCIPLES They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. JH 8:27 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he [the one I claim to be WU], and that I do nothing of myself [on my own WU]; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. JH 8:28 PRINCIPLES And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. JH 8:29 APPLY Rewards As he spake these words, many believed on [in] him. JH 8:30

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on [in] him, If ye continue [to follow WU] in my word [teaching WU], then are ye [really WU] my disciples indeed; JH 8:31 APPLY Can't Fool And ye shall know the truth, PRINCIPLES and the truth shall make you free. JH 8:32 JESUS Savior They answered him, We be Abraham's seed [descendants WU], and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? JH 8:33 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant [slave WU] of sin. JH 8:34 OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Our Frailty And the servant abideth [slave remains WU] not in [with WU] the house [family] for ever: but the Son abideth [for]ever. JH 8:35 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. JH 8:36 JESUS Savior I know that ye are Abraham's seed [descendants]; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you [you have no room for my word WU]. JH 8:37 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with [heard from WU] your father. JH 8:38 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Hating Good 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 [deeds WU] of Abraham. JH 8:39 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of [from] God: this did not Abraham. JH 8:40 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication [illegitimately WU]; we have one Father, even God [God himself WU]. JH 8:41 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 [on my own WU], but he sent me. JH 8:42 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word [listen to what I say WU]. JH 8:43 Ye are of [belong to WU] your father the devil, and the lusts [desires] of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode [stands] not in [with WU] the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of [according to WU] his own [nature WU]: for he is a liar, and the father of it. JH 8:44 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. JH 8:45  KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Hating Good Which of you convinceth me [can prove me guilty WU] of sin? JESUS Is God And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? JH 8:46 He that is of [belongs to WU] God heareth [listens to WU] God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. JH 8:47  NEED GOD Choose To Do Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well [correctly WU] that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil [possessed by a demon WU]? JH 8:48 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. JH 8:49 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh [it WU] and judgeth [he is the judge WU]. JH 8:50 Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, If a man keep my saying [word], he shall never see death. JH 8:51

Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil [are possessed by a demon WU]. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying [word], he shall never taste of death. JH 8:52 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself [out to be]? JH 8:53 Jesus answered, If I honour [glorify] myself, my honour is [means WU] nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: JH 8:54 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 [word]. JH 8:55 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. JH 8:56 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? JH 8:57 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Before Abraham was [came into existance WU], I am. JH 8:58 JESUS Is God

Then took they up stones to cast at [stone WU] him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. JH 8:59
