John 8

Jesus tells the scribes and Pharisees that he who is without sin should cast the first stone at the adulterous woman they brought before Him. He is the Light of the world. The truth will make people free. He is “I Am” who was before Abraham. The Jews to pick up stones to throw at Him. 

John 9

Jesus tells Martha He is the Resurrection and Life, weeps at Lazarus tomb, raises Lazarus from the dead, then leaves because of the conspiracy to kill Him.
