7:1 After this Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.
2 But the feast of the Jews, that of tabernacles, was near.
3 His brothers therefore said to him: Depart hence and go into Judea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest;
4 for no one does any thing in secret and desires himself to be known openly. If thou doest these things, make thyself manifest to the world.
5 For neither did his brothers believe on him.
6 Jesus says to them: My time is not yet present, but your time is always ready.
7 The world cannot hate you, but me it hates, because I testify of it that its works are evil.
8 Do you go up to the feast: I go not up to this feast, because my time has not yet fully come.
9 Having said these things, he abode in Galilee.
10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he himself also went up, not openly, but in secret.
11 The Jews then sought for him at the feast, and said: Where is he?
12 And there was much murmuring concerning him among the multitude; some said: He is a good man: others said: No, but he deceives the multitude.
13 No one, however, spoke boldly concerning him, for fear of the Jews.
14 But now at the middle of the festival Jesus went up into the, temple and taught.
15 The Jews therefore were astonished, saying: How knows this man letters, not having learned?
16 Jesus then answered them and said: My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me:
17 if any one will do his will he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or I speak of myself.
18 He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: he that seeks the glory of him that sent him, he is true, and unrighteousness is not in him.
19 Has not Moses given you the law? and none of you does the law. Why do you seek to kill me?
20 The multitude answered: Thou hast a demon: who seekest to kill thee?
21 Jesus answered and said to them: One work I have done and you all wonder.
22 Moses has given you circumcision, not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers, and on the sabbath day you circumcise a man.
23 If a man receives circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because I restored the entire man to health on the sabbath?
24 Judge not, according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25 Then said some of those of Jerusalem: Is not this he whom they seek to kill?
26 And lo, he speaks boldly, and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers then certainly known that this is the Christ?
27 However, we know this man, whence he is; but when the Christ comes, no one knows whence he is.
28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying: You both know me, and you know whence I am; and I have not come of myself, but he is true that sent me, whom you know not:
29 I know him, because I am from him and he sent me.
30 They therefore sought to take him, and no one laid his hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.
31 But many of the multitude believed on him, and said: When Christ comes, will he do more signs than these that this man does?
32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent attendants that they might take him.
33 Therefore said Jesus: Yet a little while I am with you, and I go to him that sent me.
34 You shall seek me and shall not find me, and where I am you cannot come.
35 The Jews therefore said one to another: Whither does this man intend to go, that we shall not find him? Does he intend to go among the dispersion of the Greeks and teach the Greeks?
36 What means this word that he spoke: You shall seek me and shall not find me, and where I am, you cannot come?
37 But on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying: If any one thirst, let him come and drink.
38 He that believes on me, as the scripture said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 But this he spoke of the Spirit which those that believe on him were about to receive; for the Spirit was not yet, because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
40 Some of the multitude therefore, hearing these words, said: This is in truth the prophet;
41 others said: This is the Christ; others said: Does the Christ then come out of Galilee?
42 Has not the scripture said that the Christ comes of the posterity of David, and from Bethlehem, the town where David was?
43 There was therefore a division among the multitude, because of him;
44 but some of them wished to take him; no one, however, laid hands on him.
45 The attendants therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said to them: Why did you not bring him?
46 The attendants answered: Never man so spoke, as this man speaks.
47 The Pharisees answered them: Are you also deceived?
48 Has any one of the rulers believed on him, or of the Pharisees?
49 But the multitude, that knows not the law, are cursed.
50 Nicodemus, being one of them, says to them:
51 Does our law condemn the, man unless it first hear from him and know what he does?
52 They answered and said to him: Art thou also of Galilee? Search and see that out of Galilee a prophet arises not.
