People's Bible Notes for John 8:32


Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth. Disciples are learners. Their object is to know the truth. The way to know the truth is to obey the truth. The truth shall make you free. The Gospel obeyed, frees--frees from the yoke of Satan, from spiritual task-masters, from fear, fills the soul with hope and the free spirit of a son who serves the Father from love.

    Tjohn past sins in years past should stay in the pass. If it's best to seek forgiveness of those you hurt the Lord will guide you! Faith cometh by hearing:Rom 10:17. Have u felt the tug in ur heart John 6:44,Rom 10:13,John 1:12 Don't do anything without the LORD!
  • Michele
    There is a lot of Jesus explaining what is here. "I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father." He is talking about the minds of them, their mindset is of the devil because they do not understand. Jesus mentions the son of man which is your spiritual self and the son of man. Rising above man, reaching your spiritual self, your father, you.

    Joyce B. John 8: 38 Jesus specking as I have seen with my father ( GOD ) You have seen with your father (satin) vers. 39 If you were of Abraham you would not be of satin and try to kill me.
  • Kesha
    I just love it when God brings forth revelation in more ways than one.I honestly beleive that God was Jesus,for he said,before Abraham was I Am,and he also told Moses to tell Pharoah,that I Am sent him.
  • BSP
    Jesus was explaining that he existed in heaven before Abaraham was even born showing that he is greater than any human who has ever existed.
  • Lynn
    Maybe he is speaking to the people mentioned in verse 2.
