“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
This verse is often quoted on its own; however, it is a finishing clause to the previous verse.
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;”
In order to know the Truth, we must continue in His Word; for He is the Word.
We cannot be His disciples without first believing on Him as Saviour.
The word “continue” here, refers to cleaving or holding fast to something, or in this case, Someone.
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
There is so much to glean from the conditional promises found within the Word of God.
If we choose to believe on Him, we are His disciples.
His disciples know Him as the Truth.
“…and the truth shall make you free.”
The context of this chapter is Jesus Christ conversing with the group of Pharisees which wished to stone the woman caught in the act of adultery. They were convicted by their own conscience, yet not by the Word of God.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Knowing the Truth brings freedom.
