Bible NIV, The Words of Jesus Christ


Chapter 8

{7}   "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
{10}   "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"
{11}   "Then neither do I condemn you, Go now and leave your life of sin."
{12}   "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
{14}   "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going.
{15}   You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.
{16}   But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.

{17}   In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two men is valid.
{18}   I am one who testifies for myself; my other witness is the Father, who sent me."
{19 "You do not know me or my Father, If you knew me, you would know my Father also."
{21}   "I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come." 'Where I go, you cannot come'?"
{23}   "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

{24}   I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins."
{25}   "Just what I have been claiming all along,"
{26}   "I have much to say in judgment of you. But he who sent me is reliable, and what I have heard from him I tell the world."
{28}   "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one I claim to be and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.
{29}   The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him."
{31}   "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.

{32}   Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
{34}   "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
{35}   Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
{36}   So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
{37}   I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word.
{38}   I am telling you what I have seen in the Father's presence, and you do what you have heard from your father."
{39}   "If you were Abraham's children, then you would do the things Abraham did.
{40}   As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things.

{41}   You are doing the things your own father does."
{42}   "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me.
{43}   Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.
{44}   You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

{45}   Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
{46}   Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me?
{47}   He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."
{49}   "I am not possessed by a demon, but I honor my Father and you dishonor me.
{50}   I am not seeking glory for myself; but there is one who seeks it, and he is the judge.

{51}   I tell you the truth, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death."
{54}   "If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.
{55}   Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and keep his word.
{56}   Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad."
{58}   "I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I am!"
