1AFTER this, Jesus moved about in Galilee but decided not to do so in Judaea since the Jews were planning to take his life.

2As the Jewish festival, "The feast of the tabernacles", was approaching,

3his brothers said to him, "You ought to leave here and go to Judaea so that your disciples can see what you are doing,

4for nobody works in secret if he wants to be known publicly. If you are doing things like this, let the world see what you are doing."

5For not even his brothers had any faith in him.

6Jesus replied by, saying, "It is not yet the right time for me, but any time is right for you.

7It is impossible for you to arouse the world's hatred, but I provoke hatred because I show the world how evil its deeds really are.

8No, you go up to the festival; I shall not go up now, for it is not yet time for me to go."

9And after these words he remained where he was in Galilee.

10Later, after his brothers had gone to the festival, he went up himself, not openly but as though he did not want to be seen.

11Consequently, the Jews kept looking for him at the festival and asking "Where is that man?"

12And there was an undercurrent of discussion about him among the crowds. Some would say, "He is a good man", others maintained that he was not, but that he was "misleading the people".

13Nobody, however spoke openly about him for fear of the Jews.

14But in the middle of the festival, Jesus went up to the Temple and began teaching.

15The Jews were amazed and remarked, "How does this man know all thishe has never been taught?"

16Jesus replied to them, "My teaching is not really mine but comes from the one who sent me.

17If anyone wants to do God's will, he will know whether my teaching is from God or whether I merely speak on my own authority.

18A man who speaks on his own authority has an eye for his own reputation. But the man who is considering the glory of God who sent him is a true man. There can be no dishonesty about him.

19"Did not Moses give you the Law? Yet not one of you keeps the Law. Why are you trying to kill me?"

20The crowd answered, "You must be mad! Who is trying to kill you?"

21Jesus answered them, "I have done one thing and you are all amazed at it.

22Moses gave you circumcision (not that it came from Moses originally but from your forefathers), and you circumcise a man even on the Sabbath.

23If a man receives the cutting of circumcision on the Sabbath to avoid breaking the Law of Moses, why should you be angry with me because I have made a man's body perfectly whole on the Sabbath?

24You must not judge by the appearance of things but by the reality!"

25Some of the people of Jerusalem, hearing him talk like this, were saying: "Isn't this the man whom they are trying to kill?

26Yet here he is, talking quite openly and they haven't a word to say to him. Surely our rulers haven't decided that this really is Christ!

27But then, we know this man and where he comes fromwhen Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from."

28Then Jesus, in the middle of his teaching, called out in the Temple, "So you know me and know where I have come from? But I have not come of my own accord; I am sent by One who is true and you do not know him!

29I do know him, because I come from him and he has sent me here."

30Then they attempted to arrest him, but actually no one laid a finger on him because the right moment had not yet come.

31Yet many of the crowd believed in him and kept on saying, "When Christ comes, is he going to show greater signs than this man?"

32The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering these things about him, and they and the chief priests sent officers to arrest him.

33Then Jesus said, "I shall be with you only a little while longer and then I am going to him who sent me.

34You will look for me then but you will never find me. You cannot come where I shall be."

35This made the Jews say to each other, "Where is he going to go so that we cannot find him? Surely he's not going to our refugees among the Greeks to teach Greeks?

36What does he mean when he says, 'You will look for me and you will never find me' and 'You cannot come where I shall be'?"

37Then, on the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If any man is thirsty, he may come to me and drink!

38The man who believes in me, as the scripture said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his inmost heart."

39(Here he was speaking about the Spirit which those who believe in him would receive. The Spirit had not yet been given because Jesus had not yet been glorified.)

40When they heard these words, some of the people were saying, "This really is the Prophet."

41Others said, "This is Christ!" But some said, "And does Christ come from Galilee?

42Don't the scriptures say that Christ will be descended from David, and will come from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?"

43So the people were in two minds about him

44some of them, wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him.

45Then the officers returned to the Pharisees and chief priests, who said to them, "Why haven't you brought him?"

46"No man ever spoke as this man speaks!" they replied.

47"Has he pulled the wool over your eyes, too?" retorted the Pharisees.

48"Have any of the authorities or any of the Pharisees believed in him?

49But this crowd, who know nothing about the Law, is damned anyway!"

50One of their number, Nicodemus (the one who had previously been to see Jesus), said to them,

51"But surely our Law does not judge the accused without first hearing what he has to say, and finding out what he has done?"

52"Are you a Galilean, too?" they retorted. "Look where you willyou won't find that any prophet comes out of Galilee!"

53So they broke up their meeting and went home,
