John 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery and when they had set her in the midst,

John 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

John 8:5 Now Moses in the law.(what law?).commanded us, that such should be stoned. But what say you?

John 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Emmanuel stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

John 8:8 And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

John 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last. And Emmanuel was left alone and the woman standing in the midst.

John 8:10 When Emmanuel had lifted up himself and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? has no man condemned you?

John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Emmanuel said unto her, Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.
Or, don't get yourself in trouble again; it was a new time, no longer a time of punishment to satisfy some law, but of kindness and mercy:.Matthew 9:13..(*)
John 8:12 Then spake Emmanuel again unto them, saying, I.am the light of the world.(us too). He that follows me shall not walk in darkness.
Where's darkness come from?.Psalms 74:20), but shall have the light of life.(life itself is light and light is the life of God, that is, the energy that emanates from God that sustains the physical existence and the invisible workings of all in the universe.
John 8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, You bear record of yourself. Your record is not true.

John 8:14 Emmanuel answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true. For I know whence I came and whither I go, but you cannot tell whence I come and whither I go.

John 8:15 You judge after the flesh. I judge no man..(well, who does?)

John 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true.(in other words 'If I would judge, it would be a correct judgement' {unlike the corruptness we see done by physical judges}, but He doesn't judge, He loves: John 3:16,17). For I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

John 8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.

John 8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is your Father? Emmanuel answered You neither know me nor my Father, If you had known me you should have known my Father also..(John 10:30)

John 8:23 And he said unto them.(why this was important to say to them), You are from beneath, I am from above, you are of this world.(and who's the prince of this ego ruled world?.2Corinthians 4:4; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:2-13; Ephesians 2:2,3), I am not of this world.
Christ came from a different and higher consciousness way of looking and dealing with life:.1John 2:16. He set us the example to learn and follow:.John 13:15; 1Peter 2:21; Galatians 4:7.
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you that you shall die in your sins, for if you believe not that I am he, you shall die in your sins.
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you that you shall die in your sins.(word 'sin' means in the original 'to miss the mark'), for if you believe not that I am he.(the Christ; understand that Christ is the epitome of the higher consciousness of the Father he came to reveal to humanity so that we could all be individual expressions of this high consciousness being; there is no other way out of the morass of low consciousness life), you shall die in your sins.

Because there is no other way out of the birth/death course of physical life; without seeking the higher consciousness of the Creator, one remains stuck at the low consciousness ego level; stuck in the ego level gets you nothing spiritual, just another go around in the physical until you learn more, that is, learn to respond to the spiritual prompts that come to you daily. Christ came to reveal the way out, the way.(John 14:6).into higher consciousness

'Die in your sins' means to die with the ego nature that has always been apart from higher consciousness things; dying in your sins is not believing that all sin is gone thanks to Christ:.Galatians 3:13.

John 8:26,27 I have many things to say and to judge of you.(to teach you so you can live a life based on a higher consciousness). But he that sent me is true and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
At this point the disciples did not know much about God the Father, the Creator.
John 8:28 Then said Emmanuel unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of man.(what does 'lifted up the Son of man' mean?), then shall you know that I am he and that I do nothing of myself, but as my Father has taught me I speak these things.

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me.(*). The Father has not left me alone for I do always those things that please.(are in alignment with).him.

John 8:30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.

John 8:31 Then said Emmanuel to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;
Revelation 3:18; Luke 8:4-15; 6:47-49; Matthew 7:24-27; Psalms 40:2.
John 8:32 And you shall know the truth and the.(word 'the' not in original).truth shall.(word 'shall' not in original).make you free.
How? By giving you the knowledge (2Peter 1:3) of how to extricate yourself from the ego bound world.(*).and by guiding you from the invisible. How does one get this guidance?
John 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed and were never in bondage to any man; how say you, You shall be made free?

John 8:34 Emmanuel answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.

John 8:35 And the servant abides not in the house for ever. But the Son abides ever.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore makes you free you are free indeed.(that is, sin no longer counts).
1Corinthians 7:22.
John 8:37 I know that you are Abraham's seed, but you seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.
Emmanuel here was speaking to the scribes and Pharisees, who were able to trace their lineage all the way back to ancient.Abraham and they had great pride in this, but they had strayed so far from the principles back then which were laid down later by Moses in what's called the Mosaic Law, that they even added their own stuff to it, thus causing burden by confusion and taking the people away from kindness and mercy:.Matthew 8:11; 23:2-4.
John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father. And you do that which you have seen with your father.

John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Emmanuel said unto them, If you were Abrahamís children, you would do the works of Abraham.

John 8:42.Emmanuel said unto them, If God were your Father.(*), you would love me.(because you would realize that we are all expressions of the One, as brothers), for I proceeded forth and came from.(word 'from' not in original; original is 'of', that is, it was God in Christ).God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
2Peter 1:17,18. Or better understood, 'I'm not the separate person from God I appear to be, but am He in this physical expression you see'.
John 8:43.Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word.

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil.(Emmanuel here was speaking to the Pharisees:.verse 13 above).and the lusts.(original is 'desires').of your father you will do.('just got to have it for me'). He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth.(one has to have truth in him to abide in it), because there is no truth.(the truth that love cares for others; he became self-centered:.Jude 1:6).in him. When he speaks a lie.(Matthew 12:34), he speaks of his own.(out of his own attitude of selfishness; that's his inherent nature), for he is a liar and the father of it.

What is the ultimate.fate of such 'dyed-in-the-wool' liars?.Revelation 21:8.

These things Emmanuel talked about also apply to those of the synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9; 3:9), which includes those highly influenced who live in evil and that mostly because that's the world we came up in:.Job 9:24.

Is there ever a time one should lie?

How does this evil invisible being murder humanity?
1John 3:8.

John 8:45,46 And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not. Which of you convinces me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?

John 8:47 He that is of God hears God's words. You therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.
That is, they are listening to a different drummer, that of the dark side highly influenced level of the mass mind, not the higher consciousness level of the Infinite One; because they were on a different wavelength than love, they hear the words of God, don't want to understand the meaning of them in order to do them and have a better life both now and forever because this life for them is all that's important:.Isaiah 28:9-15; Ezekiel 33:24-32.
John 8:48 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan and have a devil?

John 8:49 Emmanuel answered, I have not a devil, but I honour my Father and you do dishonour me.

John 8:50 And I seek not mine own glory. There is one that seeks.(original is 'seek', 'a thing that seeks'; this thing was a universal law set up that works automatically and that was the we 'reap what we have sown' law, understood better by knowing who judges).and judges.

John 8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying.(his 'saying' was the high consciousness way of his Father), he shall never see death.

John 8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that you have a devil. Abraham and the prophets are dead.(dead from physical existence, but like Bruno and others, alive and active on Earth from where they passed on to).and you say, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

John 8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham and the prophets which are dead? Whom are you making yourself out to be?
Barnes Notes; They were saying to Emmanuel 'Who do you pretend to be? Although the greatest of the prophets have died, yet you, a Nazarene, a Samaritan and a devil, pretends that you can keep your followers from dying?' These corrupt religious leaders even accused Emmanuel of having a devil motivating him:.John 10:19-21. It would have been scarcely possible to ask a question implying more contempt and scorn. God's 'saying' was love as exemplified in His higher consciousness ways, but these here engaged in derisive.scrutinizing of Emmanuel, hardly the attitude of anyone other than these vicious.hyprocrites. And what about Abraham and the prophets? Are they alive or dead?
John 8:54 Emmanuel answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing. It is my Father that honours me, of whom you say, that he is your God.

John 8:55 Yet you have not known him, but I know him. And if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you. But I know him and keep his saying.

John 8:56,57 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day and he saw it and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, You are not yet fifty years old and have you seen Abraham?
Comprised with.Barnes Notes: The testimony of Abraham is adduced by Emmanuel because the Jews considered it to be a high honour to be his descendants:.John 8:39. As they regarded the sayings and deeds of Abraham as peculiarly illustrious and worthy of their imitation, so they were bound, in consistency, to listen to what he had said of the Messiah, as they regarded it as sufficient righteousness that they were descended from so holy a man as Abraham. They deemed it as such an honour that it would go far to justify all his descendants: verses 33-37,53 above. In Matthew 3:9, John the Baptist, as he was called, assured them that this was a matter of small consequence in the sight of God, this thinking that we are descendants of somone great and you are not and tells them what God said in this verse in Matthew 3:9, the meaning of which seems to be this: God, from these stones, could more easily raise up those who should be worthy children of Abraham or be like him, than simply, because you are descendants of Abraham. He was making the point that the privileges of birth avail nothing where there is not righteousness of life.
John 8:58 Emmanuel said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
'I am' in the original is 'ego eimi', meaning 'the first to exist'. It means basically the same when 'I am' is used in both the New Testament and Old Testament:.Exodus 3:13,14. It's saying Emmanuel existed before Abraham. How long before?.2Timothy 1:9.
John 8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him, but Emmanuel hid himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them and so passed by.
