GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came
again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken
in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him,
Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in
the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped
down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He
that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again
he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being
convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest,
even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto
her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go,
and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light
of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have
the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest
record of thyself; thy record is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto
them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence
I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my
judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye
neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple:
and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
21 Then said
Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your
sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself?
because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
23 And he said unto them,
Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe
not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto him, Who
art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent
me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus
unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am
he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left
me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
30 As he spake these
words, many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed
on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered
him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou,
Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth
not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore
shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's
seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak
that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus
saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I
have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for
I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there
is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is
a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why
do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore
hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48 Then answered the Jews, and said
unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour
50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never
52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil.
Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he
shall never taste of death.
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which
is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered,
If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of
whom ye say, that he is your God:
55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know
him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but
I know him, and keep his saying.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my
day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art
not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59 Then took they
up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going
through the midst of them, and so passed by.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Eight
3-11- The woman was totally guilty of breaking the Law of Moses, The Ten Commandments.
She deserved to be stoned for her sin. She was caught in the act. She had nothing
good to say for herself. Jesus would pay for her sins later on the cross, so he
could forgive her. Do you believe Jesus WANTS to save you? Do you believe Jesus
never wanted to condemn anyone? Do you intend to obey Jesus, and go and sin no
more? From now on, when some other person, even a pastor, tries to condemn you,
will you walk away or rebuke that person for attacking your faith?
12- Is Jesus Christ your ONLY light in this world? Is Jesus YOUR light in all
things in life?
30-32- Do you fully intend to "continue" in the Word of Jesus?
43-47- Jesus was either a liar or the Son of God. Which one do YOU say he is?
You have no third choice.
58- Is Jesus Christ from before Abraham, from eternity? Is Jesus Christ eternal
