The Genuine Acts of Peter.[1]

John 8:11 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

And when the elders had set another woman which had sinned before Him, and had left the sentence to Him, and were gone out, our Lord, the Searcher of the hearts, inquiring of her whether the elders had condemned her, and being answered No, He said unto her: "Go thy way therefore, for neither do I condemn thee."[128]

John 8:11 - NIV, NAB - in The Second Epistle of Pope Callistus

Let him see to it that he sin no more, that the sentence of the Gospel may abide in him: "Go, and sin no more."[24]

are illuminated by the dawn of Light.[150]

John 8:12 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXII

For if we are priests of God and of Christ, I do not know any one whom we ought rather to follow than God and Christ, since He Himself emphatically says in the Gospel, "I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."[44]

John 8:12 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise X On Jealousy and Envy

For he goeth unconsciously to Gehenna, in ignorance and blindness; he is hurrying into punishment, departing, that is, from the light of Christ, who warns and says, "I am the light of the world. He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."[26]

John 8:12 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Whence, in the Gospel according to John, the Lord says: "I am the light of the world. He that will follow me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."[177]

John 8:12 - NIV, NAB - in The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs III

What shall all the Gentiles do if ye be darkened in ungodliness? So shall ye bring a curse upon our race for whom came the light of the world, which was given among you for the lighting up of every man.[23]

John 8:14 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

If Christ is only man, how is it that He says, "Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: because I know whence I came, and whither I go; ye know not whence I came, and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh? "[103]

John 8:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

When, however, He declares that He is not alone, and uses these words, "but I and the Father that sent me,"[277]

John 8:17 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

Or when he finds it placed side by side with others: "Moreover, in your law it is written that the witness of two is true. I bear witness of myself, and the Father who sent me beareth witness of me? "[204]

John 8:23 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

If Christ is only man, how does He say, "Ye are from below, I am from above; ye are of this world, I am not of this world? "[104]

John 8:24 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

This, then, is to be believed, according to Plato, though it is announced and spoken "without probable and necessary proofs," but in the Old and New Testament. "For except ye believe," says the Lord, "ye shall die in your sins."[157]

John 8:24 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also the Lord in the Gospel: "For if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins."[36]

He has also heard and seen all things with the Father; and what He has been commanded by the Father, that also does He speak.[86]

John 8:26 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

"He that sent me," says He, "is true; and I am telling the world those things which I have heard of Him."[282]

John 8:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

Himself says: "Then shall ye know that I am He and that I am saying nothing of my own self; but that, as my Father hath taught me, so I speak, because He that sent me is with me."[286]

John 8:29 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Ephesians

For even Jesus Christ does all things according to the will of the Father, as He Himself declares in a certain place, "I do always those things that please Him."[29]

and again, "If ye continue," saith He, "in my word, ye shall be truly my disciples; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."[28]

John 8:31 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

From the words in John, "If ye abide in My word, ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,"[117]

John 8:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book II

And the expression, "Ye have sold yourselves to your sins," agrees with what is said above: "Every one, then, who committeth sin is a slave; and the slave abideth not in the house for ever. But if the Son shall make you free, then shall ye be free, and the truth shall make you free."[53]

John 8:34 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

He does not call mammon Lord when He says, "Ye cannot serve two masters; "but He teaches His disciples who serve God, not to be subject to mammon, nor to be ruled by it. For He says, "He that committeth sin is the slave of sin."[59]

John 8:34 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

Nor can a sinful people be a son; but the name of sons is attributed to those to whom remission of sins is granted, and to them immortality is promised anew, in the words of our Lord Himself: "Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever, but the son abideth ever."[30]

John 8:34 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Divine Institutes Book II

or venerate the earth, or make over[246]

John 8:34 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement V

And, therefore, seeing that the prophetic sayings are fulfilled even in yourselves, you rightly believe in Him alone, you rightly wait for Him, you rightly inquire concerning Him, that you not only may wait for Him, but also believing, you may obtain the inheritance of His kingdom; according to what Himself said, that every one is made the servant of him to whom he yields subjection.[8]

John 8:34 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XIII

for the sons of the kings of the earth are not free, since "every one that committeth sin is the bond-servant of sin,"[90]

John 8:35 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And do not reprehend me when I profess to know God; for so it was deemed right to speak to the Word, and He is free.[49]

John 8:36 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

But again, those who assert that He was simply a mere man, begotten by Joseph, remaining in the bondage of the old disobedience, are in a state of death having been not as yet joined to the Word of God the Father, nor receiving liberty through the Son, as He does Himself declare: "If the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."[357]

John 8:39 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

What he knew and what he did appears again in those who are his sons, as the Scripture teaches those who have ears to hear,[12]

John 8:40 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Flesh of Christ

: "But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth; "[211]

John 8:40 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book I

and employs other terms of similar import; and when He says respecting His being clothed with a human body, "And now ye seek to kill Me, a man that hath told you the truth,"[132]

John 8:40 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book II

We have mentioned in the preceding pages that there are some of the declarations of Jesus which refer to that Being in Him which was the "first-born of every creature," such as, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life," and such like; and others, again, which belong to that in Him which is understood to be man, such as, "But now ye seek to kill Me, a man that hath told you the truth which I have heard of the Father."[76]

John 8:40 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VII

And Jesus Himself, who knew perfectly that one who was to die must be a man, said to His accusers: "But now ye seek to kill Me, a man that hath spoken unto you the truth which I heard of God."[21]

John 8:40 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus Twelve Topics on the Faith

How could one say that Christ is perfect man and also God the Word in the way of separation, when the Lord Himself says, "Why seek ye to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God? "[21]

John 8:41 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

d, and spoke of His divinity alone, which is not of the world: so that in proportion as they had inclined to believe Him to be only man, in that proportion Christ might draw them to consider His divinity, so as to believe Him to be God, desirous to overcome their incredulity concerning His divinity by omitting in the meantime any mention of His human condition, and by setting before them His divinity alone. If Christ is man only, how does He say, "I proceeded forth and came from God,"[105]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians

If any one preaches the one God of the law and the prophets, but denies Christ to be the Son of God, he is a liar, even as also is his father the devil,[48]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians

If any one confesses Christ Jesus the Lord, but denies the God of the law and of the prophets, saying that the Father of Christ is not the Maker of heaven and earth, he has not continued in the truth any more than his father the devil,[50]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

Besides, the Lord declares that "the devil is a liar from the beginning, and the truth is not in him."[198]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

For they died who tasted of the tree; and the serpent is proved a liar and a murderer, as the Lord said of him: "For he is a murderer from the beginning, and the truth is not in him."[205]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it."[191]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

the Son of God, most likely I should never have condescended to deal with Him." However, he is himself a liar from the beginning,[6]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book V

he alludes to that one from whom the Son deriving his characteristics has transferred them hither. When, however, (Jesus) remarks, "Your father is a murderer from the beginning,"[191]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

For he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him."[27]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

is a liar and a murderer from the beginning,"[103]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

: Is not that word also to the same effect which Jesus spake to the disciples, when He was demonstrating those men to be unbelieving: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do? "[254]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

For "he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."[255]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

32. Moreover, as to this word which is written in the Gospel, "Ye are of your father the devil,"[288]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

Wherefore, as certain men were inclined to yield obedience to his wishes, they were addressed in these terms by the Saviour: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts. of your father ye will do."[296]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

: In the first place, admit that the account of what we have adduced is true, and then I will give you proof about the "father of him."[308]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

Thus, on the one hand, they are called sons of that wicked one, so long as they are still yielding obedience to his service; but, on the other hand, they are called fathers if they have attained to the perfeCtion of iniquity. For it is with this view that our Lord says to the Pharisees, "Ye are of your father the devil,"[317]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

For those destroying wolves soon address themselves to any one that is cast out of the Church, and esteem him as a lamb delivered for them to devour, reckoning his destruction their own gain. For he that is "their father, the devil, is a murderer."[116]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Pope Anterus The Epistle

I should wish, my dearest brethren, always to receive the glad account of your sincere love and peace, so that the signs of your welfare might be promoted in turn by the dissemination of our letters among you, if our ancient enemy should give us quiet and deliverance from his attacks; who was a liar from the beginning,[2]

John 8:44 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

But if it were a lie, you will seek to know who caused the lie to be spoken; and especially since according to John, "When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar and the father thereof; "[247]

John 8:46 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Trallians

and lived upon earth without sin. For says He, "Which of you convicteth me of sin? "[63]

John 8:46 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

Nay, the Lord Himself also said, "Which of you will convince Me of sin? "[91]

John 8:46 - NIV, NAB - in Arnobius Against the Heathen Book I

can accuse of any crime?[145]

John 8:46 - NIV, NAB - in Arnobius Against the Heathen Book II

For we shall show that Christ did not teach the nations impiety, but delivered ignorant and wretched then from those who most wickedly wronged them.[16]

John 8:51 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

If Christ is only man, how does He say, "If any man shall keep my word, he shall not see death for ever? "[109]

John 8:51 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus Twelve Topics on the Faith

and, "He that believeth on me shall not see death, but he shall behold the life eternal? "[19]

John 8:54 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

again, "If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me, of whom ye say, that He is your God: yet ye have not known Him, but I know Him; and if I should say, I know Him not, I shall be a liar like unto you; but I know Him, and keep His saying."[291]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Magnesians

and again, "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it, and was glad; for before Abraham was, I am; "[55]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

existing before all, and going before all.[152]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

For when the Lord said to them, "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day; and he saw it, and was glad," they answered Him, "Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast Thou seen Abraham? "[157]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And teaching this very thing, He said to the Jews: "Your father Abraham rejoiced that he should see my day; and he saw it, and was glad"[54]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Since, therefore, Abraham was a prophet and saw in the Spirit the day of the Lord's coming, and the dispensation of His suffering, through whom both he himself and all who, following the example of his faith, trust in God, should be saved, he rejoiced exceedingly. The Lord, therefore, was not unknown to Abraham, whose day he desired to see;[58]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in The Gospel of Pseudo-Matthew

I will tell you greater things, that you may wonder more. I have seen Abraham, whom you call your father, and have spoken with him; and he has seen me.[60]

John 8:56 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

so also we are to understand it was in these earlier times. Hence "Abraham rejoiced to see the day of Christ, and he saw it and was glad."[105]

John 8:57 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book III

And that the Lord Himself was uncomely in aspect, the Spirit testifies by Esaias: "And we saw Him, and He had no form nor comeliness but His form was mean, inferior to men."[6]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Tarsians

And how, again, could such an one declare: "Before Abraham was, I am? "[23]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

But the Word of God did not accept of the friendship of Abraham, as though He stood in need of it, for He was perfect from the beginning ("Before Abraham was," He says, "I am"[162]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments from the Lost Writings of Irenaeus

And as He was the son of David, so was He also the Lord of David. And as He was from Abraham, so did He also exist before Abraham.[109]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VIII

for we believe Himself when He says, "Before Abraham was, I am."[25]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

But although it is not possible to maintain that one who is himself mortal can make another immortal, yet this word of Christ not only sets forth, but affords immortality: certainly He is not man only who gives immortality, which if He were only man He could not give; but by giving divinity by immortality, He proves Himself to be God by offering divinity, which if He were not God He could not give. If Christ was only man, how did He say, "Before Abraham was, I Am? "[110]

John 8:58 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus Twelve Topics on the Faith

How could it be said that the Son of God who is before the ages, and He who has appeared in these last times, are different, when the Lord Himself says, "Before Abraham was, I am; "[11]

John 8:59 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments from the Lost Writings of Irenaeus

And as He was capable of being handled and touched, so again did He, in a non-apprehensible form, pass through the midst of those who sought to injure Him,[111]
