8 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

31Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples,The Truth Will Make You Free Jn.8.31-38 (Jerusalem)Ἔλεγεν οὖν ὁ Ἰησοῦς πρὸς τοὺς πεπιστευκότας αὐτῷ Ἰουδαίους, Ἐὰν ὑμεῖς μείνητε ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τῷ ἐμῷ, ἀληθῶς μαθηταί μού ἐστε,
32and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." καὶ γνώσεσθε τὴν ἀλήθειαν, καὶ ἡ ἀλήθεια ἐλευθερώσει ὑμᾶς.
33They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one. How is it that you say, 'You will be made free'?" ἀπεκρίθησαν πρὸς αὐτόν, Σπέρμα Ἀβραάμ ἐσμεν καὶ οὐδενὶ δεδουλεύκαμεν πώποτε· πῶς σὺ λέγεις ὅτι Ἐλεύθεροι γενήσεσθὲ;
34Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin. ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι πᾶς ὁ ποιῶν τὴν ἀμαρτίαν δοῦλός ἐστιν τῆς ἀμαρτίας.
35The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever. ὁ δὲ δοῦλος οὐ μένει ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· ὁ υἱὸς μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.
36So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. ἐὰν οὖν ὁ υἱὸς ὑμᾶς ἐλευθερώσῃ, ὀντως ἐλεύθεροι ἐσεσθε.
37I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me, because my word finds no place in you. οἶδα ὅτι σπέρμα Ἀβραάμ ἐστε· ἀλλὰ ζητεῖτέ με ἀποκτεῖναι, ὅτι ὁ λόγος ὁ ἐμὸς οὐ χωρεῖ ἐν ὑμῖν.
38I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father." ἂ ἐγὼ ἑώρακα παρὰ τῷ πατρὶ λαλῶ· καὶ ὑμεῖς οὖν ἂ ἠκούσατε παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ποιεῖτε.
