returns to its vomit,” and, "A
sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.”

John 10:31 Again the Jewspicked up stones to stone him…

 

John 10:32 but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

 

John 10:33 "We are not stoning you for any of these... but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”
