I find a truth in these verses that if a person is set against God, and now in our generation Christ Jesus, nothing seems to be able to persuade him to the truth.  Abraham's true children would have accepted Him.  Jesus accuses them about being from their father the devil.
In saying the above, the Bible presents the fact that the people of the world fall into two families.  Those hearing Christ (family of God) and those who have nothing to do with Him (family of the devil). I suppose I should say here, "Where do you fit in?"
No one of them could convict Jesus of sin because there was no sin ever in Him.  2 Corinthians 3:21 says that He knew no sin meaning that He was not even attracted to sin.  Jesus accused them of not hearing God's words.  This meant what Jesus spoke were God's words.  I want to always hear what God has to say to me.
