Left brain, right brain discussion about slavery and freedom.
The crowd only wants to object that they have never been slaves;
therefore they don’t need to be freed by the truth, discipleship and word of Jesus.
They proclaim that they don’t need to be freed; they do not understand their need for God’s Grace.
Two great ideas:
“Justice is truth in action.”
Jesus is telling us that if we will buy into the first idea, the second will flow from it.
Truth is something you understand; freedom is something you do.
God wants us to know the truth so we can do justice.
