JOHN 8:21-24  21 Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and ye will seek Me, and will die in your sins. Where I go ye cannot come.” 22 So the Jews said, “Will He kill Himself, because He says, ‘Where I go ye cannot come’?” 23 And He said to them, “Ye are from beneath; I am from above. Ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 Therefore I said to you that ye will die in your sins; for if ye do not believe that I am He, ye will die in your sins.”

For what reason will the Jews die in their sins?
"if ye do not believe that I am He, ye will die in your sins." (John 8:24)

Believe what about Jesus?
That He is God who came to save sinners by paying for them the death penalty required for their sins.

What do you make of their question, "Will He kill Himself" (John 8:22)?
Despite the rough wording, it was inadvertently prophetic.

JOHN 8:25-30  25 Then they said to Him, “Who are You?” And Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.” 27 They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father. 28 Then Jesus said to them, “When ye lift up the Son of Man, then ye will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. 29 And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” 30 As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.

When will the Jews understand what Jesus said in John 8:21-26?
"When ye lift up the Son of Man." (John 8:28)

Why does that sound familiar?
It's what Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:14. See Bronze Serpent and Son of Man (John 5:27).

Why do you think Jesus would waste His time and words like this with the Jews?
"As He spoke these words, many believed in Him" (John 8:30), so they weren't wasted. They never are: "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." (Isaiah 55:11)
