So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, 1"If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,32and you will 2know the truth, and the truth 3will set you free."33
They answered him, 4"We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, 'You will become free'?"
Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, 5everyone who commits sin is a slavea to sin.356The slave does not remain in the house forever; 7the son remains forever.36So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.37I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet 8you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you.389I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard 10from your father."
