ContextThe Truth Will Set You Free
31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; 32And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how say you, You shall be made free? 34Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin. 35And the servant stays not in the house for ever: but the Son stays ever. 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. 37I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you. 38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father. 39They answered and said to him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40But now you seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41You do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
