Vital Concepts & Truths to Know in John 8

  • Condemn the sin but have compassion on the sinner!

  • Jesus made it His aim to “always do those things that please [the Father]” (John 8:29)!

    • He said that He honored His Father and did not seek His own glory (John 8:49-50).

    • He let the Father take care of seeing, knowing and deciding reward (John 8:50).

  • God’s truth is absolute (John 8:32, 44)!

    • God’s truth is not multiple choice, a gray area, subjective to the whims of man.

    • God’s truth is THE truth. THE ABSOLUTE truth.

    • There is only ONE truth. And it does not change!

Vital Concepts & Truths to Know in John 8

  • Believing in Jesus does not make one a child of God!

    • “As He spoke these words, many believed in Him” (John 8:30).

    • “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him…” (8:31).

      • “If you abide in My word…” (John 8:31). Is it possible they may not?

      • “If you were Abraham’s children…” (8:39). Is it possible they were not?

      • “If God were your Father…” (John 8:42). Is it possible He is not?

    • If God was not their Father, then who was?

      • “You are of your father the devil…” (John 8:44).

    • To Jews who believed in Him, Jesus told them that the devil was their father.

      • Faith alone in Jesus does not save!

    • Claiming God as your Father does not make Him your Father (John 8:41-47)!

An Overview/Theme of John 8: “Freedom from Sin through Christ”

  • There Is One Thing That We All Have in Common – Sin!

    • Jesus told the hypocrites, “He who is without sin among you…” (John 8:7).

    • Even the hypocritical scribes & Pharisees recognized they all were sinners (John 8:9).

  • There Are Only Two Possible Relationships One Can Have with Sin!

    • He can be a “slave” to it!

      • “Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin” (John 8:34). In bondage!

      • One given to a lifestyle of habitually sinning is enslaved to that lifestyle.

      • Slaves to sin do what they have heard from their father (John 8:38).

      • Slaves to sin do the deeds of their father (John 8:41).

      • Slaves to sin are of their father, the devil, and fulfill his desires (8:44).

    • He can be “free” from it!

      • “If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).

      • A slave cannot free another slave. The Son is only one who can (34-36).

      • One who is free from sin has God as his Father (John 8:42).

  • Living As a Slave to Sin Is a Choice That One Makes!

    • Live and judge only according to the flesh (John 8:15).

    • Willfully choosing to know neither the Father nor the Son (John 8:19, 55).

    • Living, not just “in” the world, but “of this world” (John 8:23).

    • Choosing not to believe (John 8:24).

    • Willfully ignoring, rejecting and not listening to the word (John 8:37, 43, 47).

  • Remaining a Slave to Sin Has Devastating Consequences!

    • “Walk in darkness” (John 8:12).

    • “You will die in your sin…die in your sins” (John 8:21, 24). Eternal separation!

    • “Where I go you cannot come” (John 8:21) – cannot go to heaven!

    • Follow the devil on this earth and you’ll follow him into eternity (8:44; cf. Mt. 25:41).

An Overview/Theme of John 8: “Freedom from Sin through Christ”

  • Freedom from Sin Comes Only in and through Christ!

    • It relies on the mercy of Christ (“Go and sin no more,” John 8:11).

    • It is made available to all by Christ (“I am the light of the world,” John 8:12).

    • It rests on the sacrifice of Christ, being “lifted up” (John 8:28).

    • The Son must give the freedom! Earthly/Fleshly descent means nothing (John 8:36)!
