What's the difference between: "kun" and "bare"?

I think "kun" means only and "bare" means just.

In english, the words ONLY and JUST are nearly always interchangeable. Is this not the case for KUN and BARE in Danish? If not, what is the nuanced difference between using one versus the other? Tak for svar.
