John 8:1-27 American Standard Version

8 1  but 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 taught them. 3  And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery; and having set her in the midst, 4  they say unto him, Teacher, this woman hath been taken in adultery, in the very act. 5  Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such: what then sayest thou of her? 6  And this they said, trying him, that they might have [whereof] to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. 7  But 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 with his finger wrote on the ground. 9  And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst. 10  And Jesus lifted up himself, and said unto her, Woman, where are they? did no man condemn thee? 11  And she said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go thy way; from henceforth sin no more.]

Jesus the Light of the World

12  Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13  The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest witness of thyself; thy witness is not true. 14  Jesus answered and said unto them, Even if I bear witness of myself, my witness is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye know not whence I come, or whither I go. 15  Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16  Yea and if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. 17  Yea and in your law it is written, that the witness of two men is true. 18  I am he that beareth witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. 19  They said therefore unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye know neither me, nor my Father: if ye knew me, ye would know my Father also. 20  These words spake he in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man took him; because his hour was not yet come.

Whither I Go Ye Cannot Come

21  He said therefore again unto them, I go away, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sin: whither I go, ye cannot come. 22  The Jews therefore said, Will he kill himself, that 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 except ye believe that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins. 25  They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? Jesus said unto them, Even that which I have also spoken unto you from the beginning. 26  I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you: howbeit he that sent me is true; and the things which I heard from him, these speak I unto the world. 27  They perceived not that he spake to them of the Father.
