John 8:1-27 New American Standard Bible

8 1  But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives . 2  Early in the morning He came again into the temple , and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. 3  The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery , and having set her in the center of the court, 4  they said to Him, "Teacher , this woman has been caught in adultery , in the very act . 5  "Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women ; what then do You say ?" 6  They were saying this , testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground . 7  But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, " He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." 8  Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground . 9  When they heard it, they began to go out one by one , beginning with the older ones , and He was left alone , and the woman , where she was, in the center of the court. 10  Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman , where are they? Did no one condemn you?" 11  She said , "No one , Lord ." And Jesus said , " I do not condemn you, either . Go . From now on sin no more ."]

Jesus the Light of the World

12  Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying , " I am the Light of the world ; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness , but will have the Light of life ." 13  So the Pharisees said to Him, " You are testifying about Yourself ; Your testimony is not true ." 14  Jesus answered and said to them, " Even if I testify about Myself , My testimony is true , for I know where I came from and where I am going ; but you do not know where I come from or where I am going . 15  " You judge according to the flesh ; I am not judging anyone . 16  "But even if I do judge , My judgment is true ; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me. 17  "Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true . 18  "I am He who testifies about Myself , and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me." 19  So they were saying to Him, "Where is Your Father ?" Jesus answered , "You know neither Me nor My Father ; if you knew Me, you would know My Father also ." 20  These words He spoke in the treasury , as He taught in the temple ; and no one seized Him, because His hour had not yet come .

Whither I Go Ye Cannot Come

21  Then He said again to them, "I go away , and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin ; where I am going , you cannot e come ." 22  So the Jews were saying , "Surely He will not kill Himself , will He, since He says , ' Where I am going , you cannot e come '?" 23  And He was saying to them, " You are from below , I am from above ; you are of this world , I am not of this world . 24  "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins ; for unless e you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins ." 25  So they were saying to Him, "Who are You?" Jesus said to them, "What e have I been saying to you from the beginning ? 26  "I have many things to speak and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true ; and the things which I heard from Him, these I speak to the world ." 27  They did not realize that He had been speaking to them about the Father .
