8:27. And they understood not that he called God his Father.
8:28. Jesus therefore said to them: When you shall have lifted up, the Son of man, then shall you know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself. But as the Father hath taught me, these things I speak.
8:29. And he that sent me is with me: and he hath not left me alone. For I do always the things that please him.
8:30. When he spoke these things, many believed in him.
8:31. Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed.
8:32. And you shall know the truth: and the truth shall make you free.
8:33. They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham: and we have never been slaves to any man. How sayest thou: You shall be free?
8:34. Jesus answered them: Amen, amen, I say unto you that whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
8:35. Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the son abideth for ever.
8:36. If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
8:37. I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
8:38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father.
8:39. They answered and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham.
8:40. But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not.
8:41. You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God.
8:42. Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded and came. For I came not of myself: but he sent me.
8:43. Why do you not know my speech? Because you cannot hear my word.
8:44. You are of your father the devil: and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning: and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
8:45. But if I say the truth, you believe me not.
8:46. Which of you shall convince me of sin? If I say the truth to you, why do you not believe me:
8:47. He that is of God heareth the words of God. Therefore you hear them not, because you are not of God.
8:48. The Jews therefore answered and said to him: Do not we say well that thou art a Samaritan and hast a devil?
8:49. Jesus answered: I have not a devil: but I honour my Father. And you have dishonoured me.
8:50. But I seek not my own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
8:51. Amen, amen, I say to you: If any man keep my word, he shall not see death for ever.
8:52. The Jews therefore said: Now we know that thou hast a devil.
Abraham is dead, and the prophets: and thou sayest: If any man keep my word, he shall not taste death for ever.
8:53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Whom dost thou make thyself?
8:54. Jesus answered: If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father that glorifieth me, of whom you say that he is your God.
8:55. And you have not known him: but I know him. And if I shall say that I know him not, I shall be like to you, a liar. But I do know him and do keep his word.
8:56. Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see my day: he saw it and was glad.
8:57. The Jews therefore said to him: Thou art not yet fifty years old.
And hast thou seen Abraham?
8:58. Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM.
8:59. They took up stones therefore to cast at him. But Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.
John Chapter 9
He gives sight to the man born blind.
9:1. And Jesus passing by, saw a man who was blind from his birth.
9:2. And his disciples asked him: Rabbi, who hath sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?
9:3. Jesus answered: Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents; but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
9:4. I must work the works of him that sent me, whilst it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
9:6. When he had said these things, he spat on the ground and made clay of the spittle and spread the clay upon his eyes,
9:7. And said to him: Go, wash in the pool of Siloe, which is interpreted, Sent. He went therefore and washed: and he came seeing.
9:8. The neighbours, therefore, and they who had seen him before that he was a beggar, said: Is not this he that sat and begged? Some said: This is he.
9:9. But others said: No, but he is like him. But he said: I am he.
9:10. They said therefore to him: How were thy eyes opened?
9:11. He answered: That man that is called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me: Go to the pool of Siloe and wash. And I went: I washed: and I see.
9:12. And they said to him: Where is he? He saith: I know not.
9:13. They bring him that had been blind to the Pharisees.
9:14. Now it was the sabbath, when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
