Bible: Jn 8:52-58

8:52 Then 1  the Judeans 2  responded, 3 Now we know you’re possessed by a demon! 4  Both Abraham and the prophets died, and yet 5  you say, ‘If anyone obeys 6  my teaching, 7  he will never experience 8  death.’ 9  8:53 You aren’t greater than our father Abraham who died, are you? 10  And the prophets died too! Who do you claim to be? 8:54 Jesus replied, 11 If I glorify myself, my glory is worthless. 12  The one who glorifies me is my Father, about whom you people 13  say, ‘He is our God.’ 8:55 Yet 14  you do not know him, but I know him. If I were to say that I do not know him, 15  I would be a liar like you. But I do know him, and I obey 16  his teaching. 17  8:56 Your father Abraham was overjoyed 18  to see my day, and he saw it and was glad.” 19 

8:57 Then the Judeans 20  replied, 21 You are not yet fifty years old! 22  Have 23  you seen Abraham? 8:58 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 24  before Abraham came into existence, 25  I am! 26
