Tools specific to Jhn 7:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:1

After this, Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want[fn] to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:2

But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near,

Tools specific to Jhn 7:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:3

Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:4

No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:5

For even his own brothers did not believe in him.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:6

Therefore Jesus told them, “My time is not yet here; for you any time will do.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:7

The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:8

You go to the festival. I am not[fn] going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:9

After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:10

However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:11

Now at the festival the Jewish leaders were watching for Jesus and asking, “Where is he?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:12

Among the crowds there was widespread whispering about him. Some said, “He is a good man.” Others replied, “No, he deceives the people.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:13

But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the leaders.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:14

Not until halfway through the festival did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:15

The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:16

Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:17

Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:18

Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:19

Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:20

“You are demon-possessed,” the crowd answered. “Who is trying to kill you?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:21

Jesus said to them, “I did one miracle, and you are all amazed.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:22

Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a boy on the Sabbath.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:23

Now if a boy can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing a man’s whole body on the Sabbath?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:24

Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:25

At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:26

Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Messiah?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:27

But we know where this man is from; when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:28

Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him,

Tools specific to Jhn 7:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:29

but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:30

At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:31

Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, “When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:32

The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:33

Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:34

You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:35

The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:36

What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:37

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:38

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 7:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:39

By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:40

On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:41

Others said, “He is the Messiah.” Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:42

Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:43

Thus the people were divided because of Jesus.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:44

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:44

Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:45

Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and the Pharisees, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him in?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:46

“No one ever spoke the way this man does,” the guards replied.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:47

“You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted.

Tools specific to Jhn 7:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:48

“Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him?

Tools specific to Jhn 7:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:49

No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:50

Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked,

Tools specific to Jhn 7:51

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:51

“Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:52

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:52

They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”

Tools specific to Jhn 7:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 7:53

Then they all went home,
