    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.

    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?

    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
