The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Christ delivers the woman taken in adultery.
12He declares himself the light of the world, and justifies his doctrine;
31promises freedom to those who believe;
33answers the Jews that boasted of Abraham;
48answers their reviling, by shewing his authority and dignity;
59and conveys himself from their cruelty.
