7And after these things, Jesus traveled about in Galilee, for he did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill him. 2(Now the festival of the Jews, the Shelter Festival, was near.) 3Then his brothers said to him, “Leave this place and go to Judea, so that your disciples also will see your works that you do. 4For no one does anything in secret and seeks himself to be in openness. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.” 5For not even his brothers were believing in him. 6Jesus therefore says to them, “My time is not yet come, but your time is always ready. 7The world is not able to hate you, but it hates me because I testify about it that the works of it are evil. 8You go up to the festival; I am not yet going to this festival, because my time has not yet been fulfilled.” 9Now having said these things to them, he remained in Galilee.

10But when his brothers had gone up to the festival, then he also went up, not publicly, but as in secret. 11Therefore, the Jews were looking for him at the festival and saying, “Where is that one?” 12And there was much murmuring among the crowds about him. Some were saying, “He is good.” But others were saying, “No, but he leads the crowd astray.” 13However, no one was speaking openly about him, because of the fear of the Jews.

14Now the festival already being half over, Jesus went up into the temple and began to teach. 15Therefore, the Jews marveled, saying, “How does this one know letters, not being educated?” 16Then Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not mine, but of the one having sent me. 17If anyone desires to do his will, he will know about this teaching, whether it is from God, or I speak from myself. 18The one speaking from himself seeks his own glory, but the one seeking the glory of the one having sent him, this one is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him. 19Did not Moses give you the law? Yet none of you does the law. Why do you seek to kill me?” 20The crowd answered, “You have a demon. Who seeks to kill you?” 21Jesus answered and said to them, “I did one work, and you all marvel. 22Because of this, Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man. 23If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses might not be broken, why are you angry with me because I made a man completely healthy on the Sabbath? 24Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

25Then some from the Jerusalemites said, “Is not this the one they seek to kill? 26And see, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. The rulers do not truly know that this is the Christ, do they? 27But we know where this one is from. But when the Christ would come, no one knows where he is from.” 28Then Jesus cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, “You both know me and know where I am from. And I have not come from myself, but the one having sent me is true, whom you do not know. 29I know him because I am from him, and he sent me.” 30Therefore, they were seeking to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31But many from among the crowd believed in him, and they were saying, “When the Christ may come, he will not do more signs than what this one has done, will he?” 32The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things about him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers so that they might arrest him. 33Therefore, Jesus said, “I am still with you for a short time, and then I go away to the one having sent me. 34You will seek me, but you will not find me, and where I am, you will not be able to come.” 35The Jews therefore said among themselves, “Where is this one about to go that we will not find him? He is not about to go to the dispersion of the Greeks and to teach the Greeks, is he? 36What is this word that he said, ‘You will seek me, but will not find me, and where I am, you will not be able to come’?”

37But on the last, great day of the festival, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38The one believing in me, just as the scripture says, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his stomach.’” 39(Now he said this about the Spirit, whom the ones having believed in him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.) 40Then some from the crowd, having heard these words, said, “This is truly the Prophet.” 41Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Indeed, the Christ does not come from Galilee, does he? 42Has the Scripture not said that the Christ will come from the seed of David and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?” 43So a division happened in the crowd because of him. 44(Now some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him.)

45Then the officers came back to the chief priests and Pharisees, and those ones said to them, “Why did you not bring him?” 46The officers answered, “Never has a man spoken like this.” 47So the Pharisees replied to them, “You have not also been deceived, have you? 48None from the rulers have believed in him, or from the Pharisees, have they? 49But this crowd not knowing the law, they are accursed.” 50Nicodemus (the one having come to him earlier, being one from them) says to them, 51“Our law does not judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he does, does it?” 52They answered and said to him, “You are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet rises up from Galilee.”
