63But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, "I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the
Son of God!"
64Jesus said to him, "It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power,
and coming on the clouds of heaven."
65Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, "He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His
blasphemy! 66What do you think?"
They answered and said, "He is deserving of death."
Heaven also meant the sky. Ancient people never differentiated from the two. To them they were the same. Also Christ was a title and religious one,
Jesus a political title. Do some homework 63-66
31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32And you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free."
33They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, "You will be made free'?"
34Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a
son abides forever. 36Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Didn’t he saw believe in his word?!?! His message is more important because a message can live on!!!!
Abraham's Seed and Satan's
37 "I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38I speak what I have seen with
My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father."
39They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father."
Jesus said to them, "If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the
truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. 41You do the deeds of your father."
Then they said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father--God."
42Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent
Me. 43Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44You are of your father the devil, and the desires
of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks
a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46Which of you
convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you
are not of God."
Before Abraham Was, I AM
48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?"
49Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. 50And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and
judges. 51Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death."
52Then the Jews said to Him, "Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, "If anyone keeps My word he shall
never taste death.' 53Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to be?"
54Jesus answered, "If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. 55Yet you have not
known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, "I do not know Him,' I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 56Your father Abraham
rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."
57Then the Jews said to Him, "You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?"
58Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."
59Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Isn’t the sprit infinite?!!??. In Jesus later teaching that are left out of the Bible ( yes there are books left out of the King James version of the
bible they are known as the lost books of Eden and the lost books of the bible ) he said that you didn’t need a church to worship God, your body was
your temple. He also said that God is all around you. But of course the Vatican wouldn’t endorse this because they would lose power over the
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me
. 2In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would
have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I
am, there you may be also. 4And where I go you know, and the way you know."
5Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?"
6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."
8Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us."
9Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say,
"Show us the Father'? 10Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own
authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake
of the works themselves.
Throughout these quotes he say countless time to listen to his word. HIS WORD!!! When you believe in someone you believe in what they represent
which is the Truth. Jesus said that he wasn’t trying to change what Moses taught just enforce it.
