1Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2Early in the morning he came to the temple again, and all the people came; he sat down and taught them.
3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in the act of adultery. They placed her in the middle.
4Then they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery.
5Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such people; what do you say about her?”
6They said this in order to trap him so that they might have something to accuse him about, but Jesus bent down and wrote on the ground with his finger.
7When they continued asking him questions, he stood up and said to them, “The one among you who has no sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”
8Again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground with his finger.
9When they heard it, they left one by one, beginning with the oldest. Finally Jesus was left alone, with the woman who had been in the middle.
10Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are your accusers? Did no one condemn you?”
11She said, “No one, Lord.” Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.”
12Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”
13The Pharisees said to him, “You bear witness about yourself; your witness is not true.”
14Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness about myself, my witness is true. I know where I came from and where I am going, but you do not know where I came from or where I am going.
15You judge according the flesh; I judge no one.
16Yet if I judge, my judgment is true because I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent me.
17Yes, and in your law it is written that the testimony of two men is true.
18I am he who bears witness about myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness about me.”

19They said to him, “Where is your father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father; if you had known me, you would have known my Father also.”
20He said these words in the treasury as he taught in the temple, and no one arrested him because his hour had not yet come.
21So again he said to them, “I am going away; you will seek me and will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.”
22The Jews said, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, 'Where I am going you cannot come'?”
23Jesus said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
24Therefore, I said to you that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I AM, you will die in your sins.”
25They said therefore to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “What I have said to you from the beginning.
26I have many things to speak and to judge about you. However, he who sent me is true; and the things that I heard from him, these things I say to the world.”
27They did not understand that he was speaking to them about the Father.
28Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then will you know that I AM, and that I do nothing of myself. As the Father taught me, I speak these things.
29He who sent me is with me, and he has not left me alone, because I always do what is pleasing to him.”
30As Jesus was saying these things, many believed in him.
31Jesus said to those Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word, then you are truly my disciples;
32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
33They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves of anyone; how can you say, 'You will be set free'?”
34Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
35The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever.
36Therefore, if the Son sets you free, you will be truly free.

37I know that you are Abraham's descendants; you seek to kill me because my word has no place in you.
38I say what I have seen with my Father, and you also do what you heard from your father.”
39They answered and said to him, “Our father is Abraham.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.
40Yet, now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.
41You do the works of your father.” They said to him, “We were not born in sexual immorality; we have one Father: God.”
42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and am here; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.
43Why do you not understand my words? It is because you cannot hear my words.
44You are of your father, the devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature because he is a liar and the father of lies.
45Yet, because I speak the truth, you do not believe me.
46Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe me?
47He who is of God hears the words of God; you do not hear them because you are not of God.”
48The Jews answered and said to him, “Do we not truly say that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
49Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
50I do not seek my glory; there is one seeking and judging.
51Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”
52The Jews said to him, “Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham and the prophets died; but you say, 'If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.'
53You are not greater than our father Abraham who died, are you? The prophets also died. Who do you make yourself out to be?”
54Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who glorifies me—about whom you say that he is your God.

55You have not known him, but I know him. If I would say, 'I do not know him,' I would be like you, a liar. However, I know him and keep his word.
56Your father Abraham rejoiced at seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
57The Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and you have seen Abraham?”
58Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
59Then they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
