He speaks boldly, and they say nothing to Him. c Do the rulers know indeed that this is 1 truly the Christ? 27 d "However, we know where this Man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from." 28 Then Jesus cried out, as He taught in the temple, saying, e "You both know Me, and you know where I am from; and f I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me g is true, h whom you do not know. 29 2 "But i I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me." 30 Therefore j they sought to take Him; but k no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come. 31 And l many of the people believed in Him, and said, "When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?"
