They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham.40"But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God ; this Abraham did not do.
The Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets also; and You say, 'If anyone keeps My word, he will never taste of death.'53
"Surely You are not greater than our father Abraham, who died ? The prophets died too ; whom do You make Yourself out to be?"
56"Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."57
So the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham ?"
Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am."
