There are many things I could say about you, and many judgments I could make. However, the One who sent me is true; so I say in the world only what I have heard from him."
They did not understand that he was talking to them about the Father.
So Yeshua said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM [who I say I am], and that of myself I do nothing, but say only what the Father has taught me.
Also, the One who sent me is still with me; he did not leave me to myself, because I always do what pleases him."
Many people who heard him say these things trusted in him.
So Yeshua said to the Judeans who had trusted him, "If you obey what I say, then you are really my talmidim,
you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
They answered, "We are the seed of Avraham and have never been slaves to anyone; so what do you mean by saying, `You will be set free'?"
Yeshua answered them, "Yes, indeed! I tell you that everyone who practices sin is a slave of sin.
Now a slave does not remain with a family forever, but a son does remain with it forever.
So if the Son frees you, you will really be free!
