    This is truly one of my most favourite OF passages. It is a beautiful rebuke from God. I fall in love with God each time I hear it.

    Jn chp 8 Jesus is revealing his true origin but the religious rulers are so intent with "our mind is already made up and nothing you say is gonna change that" that Jesus used the language they would clearly understand without excuse, the title God used at the burning bush when talking to Moses "I am that I am" thus shall you tell the people, that is my name. Now they got it, it's decision time, and we know they chose poorly. Jn 8:58, 59
  • TIMOTHY WAYNE GEORGE on John 8 - 12 years ago
    Jesus commanded those who found the woman in adultery that those who were without sin should cast the first stone at her. The men walked away the oldest, to the youngest. Jesus said to the woman neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more. Only Jesus could have stoned the woman, because he is the only one without sin, so the woman does what all of us have to do, and that is to fall on the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said whom the son sets free is free indeed. Jesus is the truth, and when we know the truth we are set free from the bondage of sin. So let us walk in the liberty that we have in Jesus. Jesus said I came into the world not to condemn the world, but to save the world. Spread the good news that Christ died on the cross for our sins, and was buried. He rose from the dead for our justification. This is the truth that sets us free praise God!

    Abraham,meaning,father of many nations. Yes, the tribe of kenites are a nation. A generation of people from Cain. In first Chronicles 2:55 they began to move into the church positions. Jesus is saying their father is that first murdering dog that killed his un-identical brother Able that Cain that came from that wicked one the serpent who was the tree of good and turned evil. These are kenites or sons of cain.

    They say caught her in the act. What about the other half. It takes two. Must of been their brother and they didn't want to stone him for sinning.
  • Garyloyd on John 8 - 12 years ago
    These men trying to set up Jesus by bringing a woman (this word means married) wanting to catch Him with the Law of Moses Deut. 22 stoning law for a virgin. This woman would fall under the Law of Numbers 5 and that's not stoning so I think Jesus was writting in the dirt Numbers 5. Now the Roman law would throw Jesus in Jail because you can't. Stone anyone unless it goes through the Roman court. So what they were trying to do is get Jesus in trouble. Then when they started leaving I think Jesus started writting their sins in the dirt.

    In reference to Gods name,in the old testament his name was Jehovah,and many other names,depending on what He did with man.But, He has a new name now,Jesus Christ-meaning intrep."Jehovah is my salvation",remember there is only One thrown.Jesus is the Father-I come in my Fathers name and you know me not,He's the son-and you shall call his name Jesus,and He's the Spirit,I will not leave you comfortless,I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,sound of a mighty wind!Be baptized, in the water and the spirit-John3:5 or you can't enter in the Kingdom of God,any other way is a thief and a robber,enter in the straight gate,narrow is the way.Be ye seperate for i am seperate,Jesus saves!
  • Kevin Chambers on John 8 - 12 years ago
    Jesus is the Spirit available to all of us.

  • Susan Dalton on John 8:44 - 12 years ago
    "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." ( John 8:44) Man was made in the image of God. Fallen man bears the image of fallen angels. The new man in Christ Jesus bears the image of God.
  • Darryl Dees on John 8:56 - 13 years ago
    Abraham saw it by faith when Isaac was born.

    Galatians 3:16 Now to A'bra-ham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

    Hebrews 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of A'bra-ham.
  • Patsie on John 8 - 13 years ago
    Dave- Psalms 83:18 will tell you Gods name.
  • Gary on John 8 - 13 years ago
    Ok if cain was adams son why isnt he listed as one of the decendent of adam? and what did the serpent aka (satan) do to eve in the garden? He BEGILED her and if u take that word back to the hebrew it means SEDUCED. We all know what that means, why did they cover there privats with a fig leaf?In John 8 44 Yahshua was talking to the kenites decendents of cain. Who was the first murder ? CAIN oh and by the way able and cain were twins but faternal twins not the same father. And again eve bore able, look up the word again in the hebrew it is CONTIUED if a woman contiues in labor shes havin twins. And the parable of the tares who are the children Yahshua is talkin about? The kenites of course
  • Doris early on John 8:33 - 13 years ago
    This must be human fleshly nature .....TO FORGET.
    The Israelites had forgotten how bad it was in Egypt for their people. Much like we as born again children of God sometimes forget....what it was like to be a SLAVE to SIN.
  • Bruce M. Devitt on John 8 - 13 years ago
    When we have Jesus speaking of the lifting up of the Son of Man and then knowing that it is he. You have to also look at John -3- in order to see the name of the only begotten Son of God ( The Son of Man - Jesus - ). This is the name all must believe in to obtain Eternal life. But what would make it necessary that this has to be performed? When you investigate who is the Son of Man you find that he is the only one on earth who has authority and power to forgive sins ( the man stricken with the palsey ). The reason this has to be perfomed is that those who reject and conceal the truth are of the broad way! they are called Priests.
  • Laura on John 8 - 14 years ago
    To say that the serpent (which personifies evil or which is termed the devil had sex with Eve does not give God credit at all. He said to Moses in the Law 'Do not lie with an animal as with mankind because that is confusion'. The only liar in the beginning was the serpent which God had created and the seed of the serpent is sin. When Jesus said 'you are of your father the devil' he was actually saying you are the seed of the serpent. Of course, so was Cain, but only figuratively.
  • Dave on John 8 - 14 years ago
    When Moses asked God for His name, God answered only, I AM- not a name at all, but a satement for which the word "existence" is a pale imitation of the reality, of Presence beyond space and time, beyond eternity, infinite and incomprehensible. When Jesus (v. 58) says that before Abraham was, I AM," he declares his oneness with God, and with the nature of God, more powerfully than at any other point in the Bible.Ignoring the past tense, not saying He WAS there with Abraham, but simply I AM, expresses His presence beyond any meaning of time- past present or future.
  • My2cents on John 8 - 14 years ago
    Kalu- John 8:44 personifies the devil through the evil that spreads. Just like when one has the word or spirit of the Lord upon them, they are described as speaking God's word. They are not God themselves. Jesus also spoke to one of his disciples saying "Get behind me, Satan..." Jesus' disciple was not the embodiment of pure Satan, but the spirit of Satan was in him or leading him at that moment. If you go back to Genesis 4:1 it says that Adam 'knew' Eve, they conceived, and bore Cain.

    I am familiar with the theology you are talking about that claims that Cain was the direct descendant of the devil. Please remember that GOD is LOVE, and everything God has done or will ever do is for love, as love is his essence. Sometimes, and often many times, we find ourselves face to face with a great deceiver. One who can quote much scripture and appear as though they have all the answers. We are warned of "wolves in sheep's clothing" in scripture. Their strength is to greatly deceive those who might have entered into the Kingdom of believers. In fact, we are warned of the evil one's great manipulation tactics throughout scripture, and this manipulation and deception will only get stronger, in so much that believers, if not careful, will be in danger of believing the lies. False teachers have infiltrated almost or even possibly all of the divisions of religion,making it difficult to spot with a naked eye. That is why the Holy Spirit was sent after Jesus' resurrection, so that if the one who wishes to learn about the essence of God, through the scripture, and not just learn the words of the scripture, in order to deceive ourselves and others, we will receive help by the Spirit, to understand the scripture. Without the Spirit, we are one having eyes but can NOT see. It is every Christian's responsibility to form their own relationship with Jesus, the Savior, by educating ourselves with the aid of the Spirit, so that we don't fall victim to a wolf in sheeps clothing.
  • Solomon Kalu on John 8:44 - 14 years ago
    This verse confirms that Cain is not the biological son of Adam but rather the devil. That is, the devil did in fact had intercourse with Eve. Cain is the product of this sexual relation. The attributes described in this verse reflect those of Cain from the very begining. It was not the eating of fruit of the forbidden tree that some would thought to believe.
