John 8:34 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you," (apekrithe autois ho lesous) "Jesus replied to them directly," in direct response to their "how" question. (Amen amen lego humin) "Truly, truly, I tell you all," you who claim to be liberated, free from bondage, because of your racial heritage, Rom 3:19; Joh 8:33; Joh 8:31.

2) "Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin." (hoti pas ho poion ten hamartian doulos estin tes hamartias) "That everyone repeatedly doing sin, lawless deeds, is (exists as) a slave of sin," and in bondage to sin, just as you all have been doing in seeking to kill me, for an extended period of time, Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 7:19-20; Joh 7:25; Joh 8:37. And they had committed and were then bearers of unforgiven sins, 1Ki 8:46; . Jesus spoke of a more degrading bondage, and a higher order of freedom, than they realized, Rom 6:16; Rom 6:20; 2Pe 2:19.
