d. Who Is the Source of Sin

37 I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you aseek to kill Me because My word has no place in you.

38 aI speak the things which I have seen with My Father; so then, you also do the things which you have heard from byour father.

39 They answered and said to Him, Our father is Abraham. Jesus said to them, If you were aAbraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.

40 But now you are aseeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth which I heard from God; Abraham did not do this.

41 You do the works of ayour father. They then said to Him, We were not born of fornication; we have bone Father, God.

42 Jesus said to them, If God were your Father you would love Me; for aI came forth out from God and have come from Him; for bI have not come of Myself, but He 1sent Me.

43 Why do you not understand My speaking? It is because you cannot hear My word.

44 aYou are of your 1father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a bmurderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no ctruth in him. When he speaks the lie, dhe speaks it out of his own 2possessions; for he is a liar and the 3father of it.
