“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:42 I proceeded forth - As God, and come - As Christ.
Joh 8:42 If God were your Father, ye would love me. They made this claim (Joh 8:41). Their hatred of the Son was proof that they were not God's children.
