The great controversy

1AFTER that Jesus travelled around within Galilee; he decided to avoid Judaea because the Jews were looking for a chance to kill him.

2But when the Jewish feast of Tabernacles was close at hand,

3his brothers said to him, “You should leave here and go into Judaea, so that your disciples may see the great things you are doing.

4No one can hope for recognition if he works in obscurity. If you can really do such things as these, show yourself to the world.”

5For even his brothers had no faith in him.

6Jesus answered: “The right time for me has not yet come, but any time is right for you.

7The world cannot hate you; but it hates me for exposing the wickedness of its ways.

8Go up to the festival yourselves. I am not going to this festival, because the right time for me has not yet come.”

9So saying he stayed behind in Galilee.

10Later, when his brothers had gone to the festival, he went up too, not openly, but in secret.

11At the festival the Jews were looking for him and asking where he was,

12and there was much murmuring about him in the crowds. “He is a good man,” said some. “No,” said others, “he is leading the people astray.”

13No one talked freely about him, however, for fear of the Jews.

14WHEN the festival was already half over, Jesus went up to the temple and began to teach.

15The Jews were astonished: “How is it”, they said, “that this untrained man has such learning?”

16Jesus replied, “My teaching is not my own but his who sent me.

17Whoever chooses to do the will of God will know whether my teaching comes from him or is merely my own.

18Anyone whose teaching is merely his own seeks his own glory; but if anyone seeks the glory of him who sent him, he is sincere and there is nothing false in him.

19“Did not Moses give you the law? Yet not one of you keeps it. Why are you trying to kill me?”

20The crowd answered, “You are possessed! Who wants to kill you?”

21Jesus replied, “I did one good deed, and you are all taken aback.

22But consider: Moses gave you the law of circumcision (not that it originated with Moses, but with the patriarchs) and you circumcise even on the sabbath.

23Well then, if someone can be circumcised on the sabbath to avoid breaking the law of Moses, why are you indignant with me for making someone's whole body well on the sabbath?

24Stop judging by appearances; be just in your judgements.”

25This prompted some of the people of Jerusalem to say, “Is not this the man they want to put to death?

26Yet here he is, speaking in public, and they say not one word to him. Can it be that our rulers have decided that this is the Messiah?

27Yet we know where this man comes from; when the Messiah appears no one is to know where he comes from.”

28Jesus responded to this as he taught in the temple: “Certainly you know me,” he declared, “and you know where I come from. Yet I have not come of my own accord; I was sent by one who is true, and him you do not know.

29I know him because I come from him, and he it is who sent me.”

30At this they tried to seize him, but no one could lay hands on him because his appointed hour had not yet come.

31Among the people many believed in him. “When the Messiah comes,” they said, “is it likely that he will perform more signs than this man?”

32The Pharisees overheard these mutterings about him among the people, so the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple police to arrest him.

33Then Jesus said, “For a little longer I shall be with you; then I am going away to him who sent me.

34You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”

35So the Jews said to one another, “Where does he intend to go, that we should not be able to find him? Will he go to the Dispersion among the Gentiles, and teach Gentiles?

36What does he mean by saying, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come’?”

37ON the last and greatest day of the festival Jesus stood and declared, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.

38Whoever believes in me, as scripture says, ‘Streams of living water shall flow from within him.’”

39He was speaking of the Spirit which believers in him would later receive; for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.

40On hearing his words some of the crowd said, “This must certainly be the Prophet.”

41Others said, “This is the Messiah.” But others argued, “Surely the Messiah is not to come from Galilee?

42Does not scripture say that the Messiah is to be of the family of David, from David's village of Bethlehem?”

43Thus he was the cause of a division among the people.

44Some were for arresting him, but no one laid hands on him.

45The temple police went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, “Why have you not brought him?”

46“No one ever spoke as this man speaks,” they replied.

47The Pharisees retorted, “Have you too been misled?

48Has a single one of our rulers believed in him, or any of the Pharisees?

49As for this rabble, which cares nothing for the law, a curse is on them.”

50Then one of their number, Nicodemus (the man who once visited Jesus), intervened.

51“Does our law”, he asked them, “permit us to pass judgement on someone without first giving him a hearing and learning the facts?”

52“Are you a Galilean too?” they retorted. “Study the scriptures and you will find that the Prophet does not come from Galilee.”
