1 After this Jesus went about in Galilee. He would not go about in Judea, because p the Jews 1 were seeking to kill him. 2 Now q the Jews' Feast of r Booths was at hand. 3 s So his brothers 2 said to him, "Leave here and go to Judea, that your disciples also may see the works you are doing. 4 For no one works in secret if he seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, t show yourself to the world." 5 u For not even v his brothers believed in him. 6 Jesus said to them, w "My time has not yet come, but your time is always here. 7 The world cannot hate you, but x it hates me because I testify about it that y its works are evil. 8 You go up to the feast. I am not 3 going up to this feast, for z my time has not yet fully come." 9 After saying this, he remained in Galilee.
10 But after a his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly but in private. 11 b The Jews c were looking for him at the feast, and saying, "Where is he?" 12 And there was much d muttering about him among the people. e While some said, "He is a good man," others said, "No, f he is leading the people astray." 13 Yet g for fear of the Jews no one spoke openly of him.
14 About the middle of the feast Jesus went up h into the temple and began teaching. 15 The Jews therefore i marveled, saying, "How is it that this man has learning, 4 when he has never studied?" 16 So Jesus answered them, j "My teaching is not mine, but his k who sent me. 17 l If anyone's will is to do God's 5 will, m he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I n am speaking on my own authority. 18 The one who speaks on his own authority o seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood. 19 p Has not Moses given you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law. q Why do you seek to kill me?" 20 The crowd answered, r "You have a demon! Who is seeking to kill you?" 21 Jesus answered them, "I did s one work, and you all marvel at it. 22 t Moses gave you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but u from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath. 23 If on the Sabbath a man receives circumcision, so that the law of Moses may not be broken, v are you angry with me because on the Sabbath I made a man's whole body well? 24 w Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment."English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
