TSNTyndale Study Notes:

7:1-52 This chapter is another account of Jesus during a Jewish festival, the Festival of Shelters. Jesus used elements of the festival to reveal his true identity to his Jewish compatriots and to show that he had fulfilled the festival’s essential meaning (see 7:37-39; 8:12).

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

Misunderstanding in the Gospel of John

Throughout John’s Gospel, people encountering Jesus misunderstood him (see John 3:4; 4:11, 33; 7:35; 11:12-13). They were divided over the question of Jesus’ identity. When they perceived what he was really saying, some wanted to arrest him while others wanted to become his followers (7:40-44). Only later, when Jesus’ disciples had received the Spirit, did they really understand his significance (see 16:12-13).

The world still lives in darkness and cannot understand the realities of life or of God (1:5, 10). Divine revelation is inaccessible to the world. In fact, when the light of God penetrates the darkness, exposing the ugliness of the world, many people flee deeper into the darkness because they prefer it to the light (3:19-20). Only the transforming power of God’s Spirit can provide understanding and help people see clearly as children of God (3:21; 8:12; 12:35-36, 46).

Passages for Further Study

UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / metonymy

τίς ἐστιν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν εἶπε

what is ¬the word this that (Some words not found in SR-GNT: τίς ἐστιν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν εἶπεν ζητήσετέ με καὶ οὐχ εὑρήσετέ με καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ὑμεῖς οὐ δύνασθε ἐλθεῖν)

Here, word is used to refer to the meaning of the message that Jesus had shared. The Jewish leaders had failed to understand that message. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “What was he talking about when he said”

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / quotesinquotes

εἶπε, ζητήσετέ με, καὶ οὐχ εὑρήσετέ; καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ, ὑμεῖς οὐ δύνασθε ἐλθεῖν

(Some words not found in SR-GNT: τίς ἐστιν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν εἶπεν ζητήσετέ με καὶ οὐχ εὑρήσετέ με καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ὑμεῖς οὐ δύνασθε ἐλθεῖν)

If it would be helpful in your language, you could translate this so that there is not a quotation within a quotation, as in the UST.

ζητήσετέ με, καὶ οὐχ εὑρήσετέ; καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ, ὑμεῖς οὐ δύνασθε ἐλθεῖν

˱you_all˲_/will_be/_seeking me and not ˱you_all˲_/will_be/_finding (Some words not found in SR-GNT: τίς ἐστιν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν εἶπεν ζητήσετέ με καὶ οὐχ εὑρήσετέ με καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ὑμεῖς οὐ δύνασθε ἐλθεῖν)
