as WITNESSED by...


Chapter Eight

THEN spoke IaHUShUA' again to them, saying, I am the Light of the world: these that follow Me shall not at all walk in darkness (ignorance, transgression of IaHUeH's Commandments, evil, etc.), but shall have the Light (understanding) of Life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, You bear witness with respect to Yourself; Your testimony is not true.
14 IaHUShUA' answered and said to them, Even if I testify concerning Myself, My testimony is established: because I know where I came from, and where I go to; but you cannot percieve where I come from, or where I go to.
15 You, according to the flesh, judge; I judge no man. [Note: the way the world judges is; by making laws, Governing, ruling, discriminating, controlling, accusing, enforcing, condemning, punishing, contending, striving, quarreling, Murdering, exalting self above all that is called mighty, Pretending to replace IaHUeH. IaHUeH's Justice is a completely different matter, this is what this book is about.]
16 And yet if I judge, My justice is True: for I am not alone, but I and the One having sent Me.
17 It is also written in The Law, also yours, that the testimony of two witnesses is valid.
18 I am One that testifies concerning Myself, and the Father that sent Me testifies of Me.
19 Then said they to Him, Where is Your Father? IaHUShUA' answered, You neither know Me, nor My Father: if you had recognized Me, you would have, perhaps, learned to know My Father also.
20 These words were spoken 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 He said again, I go My way, and you shall seek Me, but with these sins of yours shall die: whatwhere I go, you are not able to come.
22 Then said the Iahudim, Will He kill Himself? because He said, Where I go, you are not able to come.
23 And He said to them, You are from below; I am from above: you are of this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore to you, that you shall die with these your sins: for if you are not persuaded because I am with you, you shall die with these your sins.
25 Then said they to Him, Who are You? And IaHUShUA' said, Even Who I told you, from the start.
26 I have much to say and to distinguish concerning you: nevertheless He that sent Me is True; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard from Him.
27 They understood not that He spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said IaHUShUA' to them, As soon as you have exalted the Son of 'ENoSh, at that time you shall learn to know, because I will be, and without Myself I accomplish nothing; but even as the Father has taught Me, I speak these things.
29 And the One that sent Me is with Me: He has not left Me alone; because those things pleasing Him I do at all times.
30 As He spoke these words, many became persuaded toward Him.
31 Consequently spoke IaHUShUA' to the advantage of those Iahudim which placed confidence in Him, Provided you abide in this My word, most certainly My disciples will be;
32 And you shall know what this Truth is, and this Truth shall set you Free.
33 They answered Him, We are Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how do you say, You shall be made free?
34 IaHUShUA' answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Everyone that does the works of sin, is the slave of sin.
35 And the slave abides not in the house for ever: the Son abides to eternity.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, what is Truly free you shall be.
37 I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.
38 I speak what I have seen from The Father: and you do according to what you have heard with your father.
39 They answered and said to Him, Abraham is our father. IaHUShUA' saith to them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.
40 Moreover at this time you seek to kill Me, a Man that has told you the Truth, which I have heard from IaHUeH: this thing Abraham did not do.
41 You do the deeds of your father. Then said they to Him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even Elohim.
42 IaHUShUA' said to them, If Elohim were your Father, you would Love Me: for I have come out from IaHUeH, and arrived; for neither did I come out of Myself, but that One sent Me.
43 Why do you not understand My speech? because you are not able to hear My word.
44 You are of that father, the false accuser, and the lusts of that father of yours you delight in fulfilling. He was a murderer from the beginning, and in the Truth did not stand, because there is no Truth even near him. Whenever he speaks this lie, he speaks out of this, his own: for a liar he is, even the father of it.
45 And since I instruct in this truth, you do not believe Me.
46 Who out of yours can convict Me of sin? If I spoke truth, Through what do you not believe Me?
47 One being of IaHUeH hears IaHUeH's words: through this you hear not, since of this IaHUeH, you are not.
48 Then answered the Iahudim, and said to Him, Say we not rightly that You are of Shomeron, and are possessed of a do-evil?
49 IaHUShUA' answered, I am not; except I highly esteem My Father, and you treat Me with contempt.
50 And I seek not My own excellence: there is One present that searches out and distinguishes.
51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a certain one carefully attends to My Word, he shall certainly not look intently at death.
52 Then said the Iahudim unto Him, Now we know that You are possessed of a do-evil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, If a certain one carefully attends to My Word, they shall never taste of death.
53 Not unless You are older than our father Abraham, which is dead, also the prophets are dead: who do You fashion Yourself to be?
54 IaHUShUA' answered, If I exalt Myself, My excellence does not even exist: it is My Father that causes Me to be excellent; of Whom you affirm, that He is our Elohim:
55 Indeed you have not learned to be aware of Him; but I have observed Him: if I were to say, that I have not recieved knowledge of Him, I shall be resembling you, a falsifier: nevertheless I understand Him, and carefully attend to His Word.
56 Abraham this father of yours, rejoiced exceedingly in order to look for My day: and he beheld, and was glad.
57 Then said the Iahudim unto Him, You do not yet hold fifty years, and have You seen Abraham?
58 IaHUShUA' spoke, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham began to be, I Am.
59 Then they took up stones in order to throw at Him: but IaHUShUA' became concealed, and went out of the temple.
