There is more than just “truth will set you free” as is thrown around all the time. ’then’ means there’s something more to it. in verse 31, jesus says “if you abide in my word (by continually obeying my teachings and living in accordance with them, then) you are truly my disciples.” (abide and live in jesus. only then will you know the truth). and what is that truth? salvation is available only through jesus, the son.
freedom from what? sin!!! in verse 34 jesus tells us “jesus answered, “i assure you and most solemnly say to you, everyone who practices sin habitually is a s***e of sin.”
slavery to sin keeps us all down. keeps us separated from god and devoid of the sunlight of the spirit!
know and live the truth not just truth. for, knowing the truth and not living the truth is no freedom at all!
