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.

    Maybe he is speaking to the people mentioned in verse 2.

    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.

    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.
  • Volcmae Taylor
    3 to12, does not line up.(Please read) the scribes and the pharisees brought to Jesus an adulterous woman, 4 to 6 stat what happen, verse 7 Jesus reply. Verse 9 said everyone left, one by one, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing in the midst, verse 10/11 said Jesus saw none but the woman, and told her to go and sin no more. So if they all left, who was Jesus talking to in verse 12?
  • Gregory M. Jensen
    When Moses was up in the mountain to receive the 10 Commandments , he asked God who he was ,to which he replied I am . All throughout the book of John , Jesus would say "I am" which should have been a clue to the Jews who he was, but Satan blinded them and blocked their ears from hearing the truth . To this day Satan is still blocking them from seeing
  • Timetraveler
    When Jesus stooped down and was writing in the sand he was writing out the ones around him their sins in the sand and they read them and understood.
