Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot accept my word.
You are from your father the devil, and you choose to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.
Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

Very truly, I tell you, whoever keeps my word will never see death."

Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? The prophets also died. Who do you claim to be?"
