Bible: John 8:31-38

Abraham’s Children and the Devil’s Children

8:31 Then Jesus said to those Judeans 1  who had believed him, “If you continue to follow my teaching, 2  you are really 3  my disciples 8:32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 4  8:33 We are descendants 5  of Abraham,” they replied, 6 and have never been anyone’s slaves! How can you say, 7 You will become free? 8:34 Jesus answered them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 8  everyone who practices 9  sin is a slave 10  of sin. 8:35 The slave does not remain in the family 11  forever, but the son remains forever. 12  8:36 So if the son 13  sets you free, you will be really free. 8:37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. 14  But you want 15  to kill me, because my teaching 16  makes no progress among you. 17  8:38 I am telling you the things I have seen while with the 18  Father; 19  as for you, 20  practice the things you have heard from the 21  Father!
