Jesus: I am the light of the world.
Pharisees: You bear witness about yourself. That’s not true.
Jesus: It is true. My witness is true. I am the one who bears witness about myself, and the Father bears witness about me also.
Jesus: I go to my Father.
Jesus: You don’t know him
Jesus: I am going away.
Pharisees: Is he talking suicide?
Jesus: I am from above. I am not of this world. Unless you believe I am he you will die in your sins.
Pharisees: Who are you?
Jesus: I told you already. When I am lifted up you will know that I am he. I do what pleases the Father.
Jesus: Abide in my word, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Pharisees: We were never slaves. Abraham is our father.
Jesus: All who commit sin are slaves. You say you are offspring of Abraham, yet you seek to kill me. Your father is the devil.
Pharisees: We weren’t born of immorality. God is our father.
Jesus: If that were true you would love me. You are from your father the devil, not God. I came from God and I am here.
Pharisees: You are a Samaritan and have a demon.
Jesus: No. And if anyone keeps my word he will see never see death.
Pharisees: Are you greater than Abraham, who died? All have died.
Jesus: My Father glorifies me - Abraham rejoiced to see my day.
Pharisees: You can’t have been seen by Abraham. You are not possibly old enough.
Jesus: Before Abraham was, I AM.
