So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "1If you continue in My word, then you are truly 2disciples of Mine;
and 3you will know the truth, and 4the truth will make you free."
They answered Him, "5We 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, 6everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.
"7The slave does not remain in the house forever; 8the son does remain forever.
"So if the Son 9makes you free, you will be free indeed.
