Abraham would'nt have done that. 41 You are doing your father's actions." They told him, "We're not illegitimate children. We have one Father, God himself." 42 Jesus told them, "If God were your Father, you would've loved me, because I came from God and am here. I haven't come on my own accord, but he sent me.
