John 8:37-47

NLT 37 Yes, I realize that you are descendants of Abraham. And yet some of you are trying to kill me because there’s no room in your hearts for my message. NIV 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. NLT 38 I am telling you what I saw when I was with my Father. But you are following the advice of your father.” NIV 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.” NLT 39 “Our father is Abraham!” they declared. “No,” Jesus replied, “for if you were really the children of Abraham, you would follow his example. NIV 39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do what Abraham did. NLT 40 Instead, you are trying to kill me because I told you the truth, which I heard from God. Abraham never did such a thing. NIV 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. NLT 41 No, you are imitating your real father.” They replied, “We aren’t illegitimate children! God himself is our true Father.” NIV 41 You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” NLT 42 Jesus told them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. NIV 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. NLT 43 Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It’s because you can’t even hear me! NIV 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. NLT 44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. NIV 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. NLT 45 So when I tell the truth, you just naturally don’t believe me! NIV 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! NLT 46 Which of you can truthfully accuse me of sin? And since I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me? NIV 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? NLT 47 Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.” NIV 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
