Jesus Teaches at the Feast

1 After these things Jesus was R414 walking in Galilee, for He was unwilling to walk in Judea because the R415 Jews were R416 seeking to kill Him. 2 Now the feast of the Jews, the R417 Feast of Booths, was near. 3 Therefore His brothers R418 said to Him, "Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples R419 also may see Your works which You are doing. 4 "For no one does anything in secret when F81 he himself seeks to be known publicly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world." 5 For not even His brothers R420 were believing in Him. 6 So Jesus said to them, "My R421 time is not yet here, but your time is always opportune. 7 "The R422 world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its R423 deeds are evil. 8 "Go up to the feast yourselves; I do not go up to this feast because My R424 time has not yet fully come." 9 Having said these things to them, He stayed in Galilee.

10 But when His brothers R425 had gone up to the feast, then He Himself also went up, not publicly, but as if, in secret. 11 So R426 the Jews were R427 seeking Him at the feast and were saying, "Where is He?" 12 There was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him; some R428 were saying, "He is a good man"; others were saying, "No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray." 13 Yet no one was speaking openly of Him for fear R429 of the Jews.

14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and began to teach. R430 15 The R431 Jews then were astonished, saying, "How has this man become R432 learned, having never been educated?" 16 So Jesus answered them and said, "My R433 teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. 17 "If R434 anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself. 18 "He who speaks from himself seeks R435 his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

19 "Did R436 not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law? Why do you seek R437 to kill Me?" 20 The crowd answered, "You R438 have a demon! Who seeks to kill You?" 21 Jesus answered them, "I did one R439 deed, F82 and you all marvel. 22 "For this reason Moses R440 has given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but from the R441 fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man. 23 "If R442 a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath? 24 "Do not judge R443 according to appearance, but judge F83 with righteous judgment."

25 So some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, "Is this not the man whom they are seeking to kill? 26 "Look, He is speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to Him. The R444 rulers do not really know that this is the F84 Christ, do they? 27 "However, we R445 know where this man is from; but whenever the Christ may come, no one knows where He is from." 28 Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching R446 and saying, "You R447 both know Me and know where I am from; and I R448 have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know. 29 "I R449 know Him, because I R450 am from Him, and He R451 sent Me." 30 So they were R452 seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour R453 had not yet come. 31 But many R454 of the crowd believed in Him; and they were saying, "When R455 the F85 Christ comes, He will not perform more signs R456 F86 than those which this man has, will He?"

32 The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers R457 to seize R458 Him. 33 Therefore Jesus said, "For R459 a little while longer I am with you, then I R460 go to Him who sent Me. 34 "You R461 will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come." 35 The R462 Jews then said to one another, "Where R463 does this man intend to go that we will not find Him? He is not intending to go to the R464 Dispersion among the R465 Greeks, and teach the Greeks, is He? 36 "What is this statement that He said, `You R466 will seek Me, and will not find Me; and where I am, you cannot come'?"

37 Now on the R467 last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If R468 F87 anyone is thirsty, let F88 him come to Me and drink. 38 "He who believes in Me, as R469 the Scripture said, `From his F89 innermost being will flow rivers of living R470 water.' " 39 But this He spoke of R471 the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the R472 Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. R473

Division of People over Jesus

40 Some of the people therefore, when they heard these words, were saying, "This certainly is the R474 Prophet." 41 Others were saying, "This is the F90 Christ." Still others were saying, "Surely R475 the F90 Christ is not going to come from Galilee, is He? 42 "Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the R476 descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?" 43 So a R477 division occurred in the crowd because of Him. 44 Some R478 of them wanted to seize Him, but no one laid hands on Him.

45 The officers R479 then came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?" 46 The officers R480 answered, "Never R481 has a man spoken the way this man speaks." 47 The Pharisees then answered them, "You R482 have not also been led astray, have you? 48 "No R483 one of the R484 rulers or Pharisees has believed in Him, has he? 49 "But this crowd which does not know the Law is accursed." 50 Nicodemus R485 (he who came to Him before, being one of them) said to them, 51 "Our R486 Law does not judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he is doing, does it?" 52 They answered him, "You R487 are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee." 53 [Everyone F91 went to his home.
