John 8:40

But now (nun de).
Clear statement that they are not doing "the works of Abraham" in seeking to kill him. See this use of nun de after a condition of second class without an in John 16:22,24.

This did not Abraham (touto Abraam ouk epoihsen).
Blunt and pointed of their unlikeness to Abraham.

A man that hath told you the truth (antrwpon ov ten alhteian umin lelalhka).
Antrwpon (here=person, one) is accusative case in apposition with

me (me)
just before. The perfect active indicative lelalhka from lalew is in the first person singular because the relative ov has the person of me, an idiom not retained in the English

that hath (that have or who have)
though it is retained in the English of 1 Corinthians 15:9 "that am" for ov eimi.

Which I heard from God (hn hkousa para tou teou).
Here we have "I" in the English. "God" here is equal to "My Father" in verse 38. The only crime of Jesus is telling the truth directly from God.
