Where did Jesus say this? Where did you get that from his words "your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day and saw it and was glad"?FYI, only God can know someone before that some one is born! In John 8:58 Jesus CLAIMED to have personally known Abraham ( Not after Abraham was born ) before Abraham was born! You lose again! Case closed as ONLY GOD knows people before they are born! ----------------------
Notice, Jesus only said that Abraham saw his day and not that he saw Abraham or Abraham's day and therefore Jesus was speaking of a vision that God gave him were he saw the time when Jesus would come to Israel from God's foreknowledge of it.
By the way, God also knew Jesus before he was born and as per 1 Peter 1:20, "who truly was foreknown "prognosis" before the foundation of the world but was in these last days made manifest for you".
He was saying that Abraham received a vision of the day that Jesus would come to his people Israel from God's foreknowledge of it and he never said any such thing as what the Jews were accusing him of saying or like what you also have twisted him to be saying in agreement with those reprobates.
For like usual they were looking for something to accuse him to death for, and therefore they only heard what they wanted from their real Father the Devil and Jesus even told them this also in that same chapter.
