8 Revised Standard Version Passage

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)
32and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." 
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'?" 
34Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin. 
35The slave does not continue in the house for ever; the son continues for ever. 
36So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. 
37I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me, because my word finds no place in you. 
38I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father."
