Bible: Jn 8:33-39

8:33 We are descendants 1  of Abraham,” they replied, 2 and have never been anyone’s slaves! How can you say, 3 You will become free? 8:34 Jesus answered them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 4  everyone who practices 5  sin is a slave 6  of sin. 8:35 The slave does not remain in the family 7  forever, but the son remains forever. 8  8:36 So if the son 9  sets you free, you will be really free. 8:37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. 10  But you want 11  to kill me, because my teaching 12  makes no progress among you. 13  8:38 I am telling you the things I have seen while with the 14  Father; 15  as for you, 16  practice the things you have heard from the 17  Father!

8:39 They answered him, 18 Abraham is our father!” 19  Jesus replied, 20 If you are 21  Abraham’s children, you would be doing 22  the deeds of Abraham.
