8.11 ...sin no more...
8.16 ...if... It would be good to look up what kind of conditional clause that it.
8.29 I always... I would like to say that.
8.32 ...we have never been enslaved... What could they possibly mean by this? especially as a Roman province. Pat is fond of saying something like You pick your master, but everybody has one.
8.41 They seem to think that because they were not born illegitimately, their father is God.
8.48 I can't help but wonder if this verse weren't in the back of Jesus' mind when he told the parable of the good Samaritan. :o)

Cyril of Alexandria in Commentary on the Gospel of St. John 12.1
When Christ greeted his holy disciples with the words, "Peace be with you," by peace He meant Himself, for Christ's presence always brings tranquility of soul. This is the grace Saint Paul desired for believers when he wrote, "The Peace of Christ which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds." The peace of Christ which passes all understanding is in fact the Spirit of Christ, who fills those who share in him with every blessing.
