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.

    Chapter 8:34 says 'whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. Romans 6:17 says we WERE the servants of sin. Verse 20 also that we 'were' servants of sin. Who are those people (we) who are not sinners anymore?
  • Sarah Eloise
    It is clear to see even the more by studying John 8 that Jesus is not some seperated person from the Father. He spoke in parables in previous books and spoke metaphorically as well, many times he does not come out and just say clearly what he wants you to figure out. If he did that then his message would not make you think. 1 tim3:16 says He mmanifested in flesh, this is the son.Son=flesh of God
  • Emmanuel
    Powerful teaching...Jesus sad to this Jews vs 37"I know that ye are Abraham's seed;but ye seek to kill me,because my word hath no place in you." in other word you have no relationship with me, you know nothing. Jesus is the truth and wants you abide in Him you will know the truth.
  • Lynn
    Maybe he is speaking to the people mentioned in verse 2.
  • Ron Anderson
    They all left, meaning the accusers. but there were others in attendance watching this play out who would have heard Jesus's words and recorded them.
  • Ken moton
    read vs 2 . Jesus was teaching, the scribes and Pharisees came and brought the accused. when there consciences were convicted by Jesus, they ( the accusers left) jesus saw no man ( no accuser). His audience was still present.
