Context

John 8 [54.] Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is our God. You have not known him, but I know him. If I said, ‘I don’t know him,’ I would be like you, a liar. But I know him, and keep his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day. He saw it, and was glad.”

John 8 [57.] The Jews therefore said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?”
