John 7

After these things Jesus walked about in Galilee: for He was not willing to walk about in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill Him. And the feast of the Jews, tabernacles, was nigh. Then His brothers said to Him; Depart hence, and go into Judea; in order that thy disciples shall see thy works which thou art doing. For no one does anything in secret, and Himself seeks to be public. If thou doest these things, show thyself to the world. For His brothers were not believing on Him. Jesus says to them, My time is not yet; but your time is always ready. The world is not able to hate you; but it hates me, because I testify against it, that its works are evil. You go up to the feast: I do not go to this feast; because my time is not yet fulfilled. Saying these things He remained in Galilee. 10 And when His brothers went up to the feast, then Himself also went up, not openly, but in secret. 11 Then the Jews were seeking Him at the feast, and saying, Where is He? 12 And there was much murmuring in the crowd concerning Him: some indeed were saying, That He is good; others were saying, No, but He deceives the multitude. 13 No one indeed was speaking openly concerning Him on account of the fear of the Jews. 14 But the feast already being midway, Jesus came up into the temple, and was teaching. 15 Then the Jews marveled, saying; How does this one know letters, never having been taught? 16 Then Jesus responded to them, and said, My teaching is not mine, but of Him that sent me; 17 if any one may will to do His will, he shall know concerning the teaching, whether it is of God, or I speak for myself. 18 He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: he that seeketh the glory of Him that sent Him, the same is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law? and no one of you does the law. Why do you seek to kill me? 20 And the multitude responded, Thou hast a demon: who seeks to kill thee? 21 Jesus responded and said to them, I did one work, and you were all astonished. 22 Moses gave you circumcision, not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers, and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath. 23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, in order that the law of Moses may not be broken; are you mad at me, because I made a man entirely whole on the Sabbath? 24 Judge not according to sight, but judge righteous judgment. 25 Then certain ones of Jerusalemites were saying, Is not this He whom they wished to kill? 26 And behold He speaks publicly, and they say nothing to Him. Whether do the rulers truly know that He is the Christ? 27 But we know Him whence He is: but when Christ may come, no one knows whence He is. 28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, You indeed know me, and know whence I am; and I have not come of myself, but the one sending me is true, whom you do not know. 29 I know Him, because I am with Him, and He sent me. 30 Then they were seeking to arrest Him: and no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come. 31 And many from the multitude believed on Him; and continued to say, When Christ may come, will He do more miracles than this one is doing? 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things concerning Him; and the chief priests and Pharisees sent officers, that they should arrest Him. 33 Then Jesus said, Yet a little while I am with you, and I go to Him that sent me. 34 You will seek me, and will not find me: and where I am, you are not able to come. 35 Then the Jews said to themselves, Where is He about to go, that we shall not find Him? is He about to go into the Dispersion of the Greek, and teach the Greeks? 36 What is this word which He said, You shall seek me, and not find me: and where I am, you are not able to come? 37 And on the last great day of the feast, Jesus stood and continued to cry out, saying, If any one thirst, let him come and drink. 38 The one believing on me, as the Scripture said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water. 39 And He spoke this concerning the Spirit, whom those believing on Him were about to receive: for the Spirit was not yet; because Jesus was not yet glorified. 40 Then those hearing these words from the multitude, were saying, This is truly the prophet; 41 others were saying, He is the Christ; others were saying, For whether does Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Did not the Scripture say, that Christ comes from the seed of David and from the village of Bethlehem, where David was? 43 Then there was a schism in the crowd on account of Him: 44 and some of them wished to arrest Him; but no one laid hands on Him. 45 Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, Why did you not bring Him? 46 The officers responded, Never did a man so speak, as this man speaks. 47 And the Pharisees responded to them; Are ye also deceived? 48 Whether has any one of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on Him? 49 But this crowd knowing not the law are accursed. 50 Nicodemus being one of them, says to them; 51 Whether does our law judge a man, until it may first hear from him and know what he does? 52 They responded and said to him, Whither art thou also from Galilee? Search, and see that no prophet rises out of Galilee.
