As He spoke these things, 1many came to believe in Him.
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "2If you continue in My word, then you are truly 3disciples of Mine;
and 4you will know the truth, and 5the truth will make you free."
They answered Him, "6We are Abraham's descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, 'You will become free '?"
Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, 7everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
"8The slave does not remain in the house forever; 9the son does remain forever.
"So if the Son 10makes you free, you will be free indeed.
