1and Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2At daybreak he appeared in the Temple again; and as al the people came to him, he sat down andbegan to teach them. 3The scribes and Pharisees brought a woman along who had been caught committing adultery; andmaking her stand there in the middle 4they said to Jesus, 'Master, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery, 5and in the Law Moses has ordered us to stone women of this kind. What have you got to say?' 6They asked him this as a test, looking for an accusation to use against him. But Jesus bent down andstarted writing on the ground with his finger. 7As they persisted with their question, he straightened up and said, 'Let the one among you who isguiltless be the first to throw a stone at her.' 8Then he bent down and continued writing on the ground. 9When they heard this they went away one by one, beginning with the eldest, until the last one had goneand Jesus was left alone with the woman, who remained in the middle. 10Jesus again straightened up and said, 'Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?' 11'No one, sir,' she replied. 'Neither do I condemn you,' said Jesus. 'Go away, and from this moment sinno more.' 12When Jesus spoke to the people again, he said: I am the light of the world; anyone who fol ows me wilnot be walking in the dark, but wil have the light of life. 13At this the Pharisees said to him, 'You are testifying on your own behalf; your testimony is not true.' 14Jesus replied: Even though I am testifying on my own behalf, my testimony is stil true, because I knowwhere I have come from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. 15You judge by human standards; I judge no one, 16but if I judge, my judgement will be true, because I am not alone: the one who sent me is with me; 17and in your Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true. 18I testify on my own behalf, but the Father who sent me testifies on my behalf, too. 19They asked him, 'Where is your Father then?' Jesus answered: You do not know me, nor do you knowmy Father; if you did know me, you would know my Father as wel . 20He spoke these words in the Treasury, while teaching in the Temple. No one arrested him, becausehis hour had not yet come. 21Again he said to them: I am going away; you will look for me and you wil die in your sin. Where I amgoing, you cannot come. 22So the Jews said to one another, 'Is he going to kil himself, that he says, "Where I am going, youcannot come?" ' 23Jesus went on: You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24I have told you already: You wil die in your sins. Yes, if you do not believe that I am He, you wil die inyour sins. 25So they said to him, 'Who are you?' Jesus answered: What I have told you from the outset. 26About you I have much to say and much to judge; but the one who sent me is true, and what I declareto the world I have learnt from him. 27They did not recognise that he was talking to them about the Father. 28So Jesus said: When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you wil know that I am He and that I donothing of my own accord. What I say is what the Father has taught me; 29he who sent me is with me, and has not left me to myself, for I always do what pleases him. 30As he was saying this, many came to believe in him. 31To the Jews who believed in him Jesus said: If you make my word your home you wil indeed be mydisciples; 32you wil come to know the truth, and the truth wil set you free. 33They answered, 'We are descended from Abraham and we have never been the slaves of anyone;what do you mean, "You wil be set free?" ' 34Jesus replied: In all truth I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave. 35Now a slave has no permanent standing in the household, but a son belongs to it for ever. 36So if the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free. 37I know that you are descended from Abraham; but you want to kil me because my word finds no placein you. 38What I speak of is what I have seen at my Father's side, and you too put into action the lessons youhave learnt from your father. 39They repeated, 'Our father is Abraham.' Jesus said to them: If you are Abraham's children, do asAbraham did. 40As it is, you want to kill me, a man who has told you the truth as I have learnt it from God; that is notwhat Abraham did. 41You are doing your father's work. They replied, 'We were not born illegitimate, the only father we haveis God.' 42Jesus answered: If God were your father, you would love me, since I have my origin in God and havecome from him; I did not come of my own accord, but he sent me. 43Why do you not understand what I say? Because you cannot bear to listen to my words. 44You are from your father, the devil, and you prefer to do what your father wants. He was a murdererfrom the start; he was never grounded in the truth; there is no truth in him at all. When he lies he is speaking trueto his nature, because he is a liar, and the father of lies. 45But it is because I speak the truth that you do not believe me. 46Can any of you convict me of sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe me? 47Whoever comes from God listens to the words of God; the reason why you do not listen is that you arenot from God. 48The Jews replied, 'Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and possessed by a devil?'Jesus answered: 49I am not possessed; but I honour my Father, and you deny me honour. 50I do not seek my own glory; there is someone who does seek it and is the judge of it. 51In al truth I tel you, whoever keeps my word wil never see death. 52The Jews said, 'Now we know that you are possessed. Abraham is dead, and the prophets are dead,and yet you say, "Whoever keeps my word wil never know the taste of death." 53Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? The prophets are dead too. Who are youclaiming to be?' 54Jesus answered: If I were to seek my own glory my glory would be worth nothing; in fact, my glory isconferred by the Father, by the one of whom you say, 'He is our God,' 55although you do not know him. But I know him, and if I were to say, 'I do not know him,' I should be aliar, as you yourselves are. But I do know him, and I keep his word. 56Your father Abraham rejoiced to think that he would see my Day; he saw it and was glad. 57The Jews then said, 'You are not fifty yet, and you have seen Abraham!' 58Jesus replied: In all truth I tell you, before Abraham ever was, I am. 59At this they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself and left the Temple.
