1) "Jesus said unto them," (eipen autois ho lesous) "Jesus said to them," in reply to their reputation-besmirching insinuation against Him, that He was born from a fornication affair, Joh 8:41.

2) "If God were your Father," (ei ho theos pater humon en) "If God were your Father," as you claim, which He is not, in a spiritual way, Joh 5:43.

3) "Ye would love me:” (egapate an eme) "You all would have loved me," the Son of God, His beloved Son, Mal 1:6; 1Jn 5:1, if you were His children, instead of children of the Devil, according to your deeds, Joh 8:44; 1Jn 3:10.

4) "For I proceeded forth and came from God;” (ego gar ek tou theou ekselthon kai heko) "For I came forth from and of God, and have come," to comfort you, Joh 1:14; Joh 3:16.

5) "Neither came I of myself," (oude gar ap' hemautou eleutha) "Because I have not at all come out of or from myself," Joh 13:3; Joh 16:28.

6) "But he sent me." (all' ekeinos me apesteilen) "But that one sent or commissioned me," the one true God, the Father, verified by Paul, Gal 4:4-5.
