Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, โ€œIf you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.โ€ They answered him, โ€œWe are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean by saying, โ€˜You will be made freeโ€™?โ€ Jesus answered them, โ€œVery truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not have a permanent place in the household; the son has a place there forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
