Gospel According to John (WEB)

7:1 After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee, for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. 7:2Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand. 7:3His brothers therefore said to him, "Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see your works which you do. 7:4For no man does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, reveal yourself to the world." 7:5For even his brothers didn't believe in him.

7:6Jesus therefore said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. 7:7The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil. 7:8You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled."

7:9Having said these things to them, he stayed in Galilee. 7:10But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret. 7:11The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, "Where is he?" 7:12There was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others said, "Not so, but he leads the multitude astray." 7:13Yet no one spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews. 7:14But when it was now the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 7:15The Jews therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?"

7:16Jesus therefore answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. 7:17If anyone desires to do his will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I speak from myself. 7:18He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 7:19Didn't Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?"

7:20The multitude answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?"

7:21Jesus answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it. 7:22Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy. 7:23If a boy receives circumcision on the Sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me, because I made a man every bit whole on the Sabbath? 7:24Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

7:25Some therefore of them of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this he whom they seek to kill? 7:26Behold, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is truly the Christ? 7:27However we know where this man comes from, but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from."

7:28Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, "You both know me, and know where I am from. I have not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you don't know. 7:29I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me."

7:30They sought therefore to take him. No one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 7:31But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more signs than those which this man has done?" 7:32The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.

7:33Then Jesus said, "Yet a little while, am I with you, then I go to him who sent me. 7:34You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come."

7:35The Jews therefore said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we won't find him? Will he go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 7:36What is this word that he said, 'You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come?'"

7:37Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink! 7:38He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water." 7:39But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. For the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus wasn't yet glorified.

7:40Many of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet." 7:41Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "What, does the Christ come out of Galilee? 7:42Hasn't the Scripture said that the Christ comes of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?" 7:43So there arose a division in the multitude because of him. 7:44Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him. 7:45The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why didn't you bring him?"

7:46The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!"

7:47The Pharisees therefore answered them, "Are you also led astray? 7:48Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees? 7:49But this multitude that doesn't know the law is accursed."

7:50Nicodemus (he who came to him by night, being one of them) said to them, 7:51"Does our law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?"

7:52They answered him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search, and see that no prophet has arisen out of Galilee."

7:53Everyone went to his own house,
