John 7:14-30


Now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught.


And the Jews marveled, saying, "How does this Man know letters, having never studied?"


Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.


If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.


He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.


Did not Moses give you the law, yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill Me?


The people answered and said, "You have a demon. Who is seeking to kill You?"


Jesus answered and said to them, "I did one work, and you all marvel.


Moses therefore gave you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.


If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath?


Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.


Now some of them from Jerusalem said, "Is this not He whom they seek to kill?


But look! He speaks boldly, and they say nothing to Him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is truly the Christ?


However, we know where this Man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from.


Then Jesus cried out, as He taught in the temple, saying, "You both know Me, and you know where I am from; and I have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.


But I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me.


Therefore they sought to take Him; but no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.
