HOLY GOSPEL John 8:31–36
P The Holy Gospel according to St. John, the eighth chapter.
C Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
31So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide
in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32and you will know the
truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33They answered him, “We are
offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone.
How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
34Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who
commits sin is a slave to sin. 35The slave does not remain in the
house forever; the son remains forever. 36So if the Son sets you free,
you will be free indeed.
P This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
