Pentecost

"So, if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed."
(John 8:36)

Twenty-First Sunday after Pentecost

The Truth Shall Make You Free

John 8:31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples;
John 8:32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

John 8:33 They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean by saying, 'You will be made free'?"
John 8:34 Jesus answered them, "Very truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.
John 8:35 The slave does not have a permanent place in the household; the son has a place there forever.
John 8:36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.

NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes

[John 8:36] Freedom given by Christ is the only true freedom. Delivered from the shackles and the bondage of sin, a Christian can do what he ought, and is no longer bound to his evil desires as this woman had been (cf. Rom. 6:11-14). The unsaved man indulges in sin and has no power over it. Sin is in control. Sin binds him. Christ's offer is freedom from such bondage, and a life that wills to please God and does.
