John 7:14-36

14But when it was now the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 15The Jews therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?" 16Jesus therefore answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. 17If anyone desires to do his will, he will know about the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I am speaking from myself. 18He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19Didn't Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?" 20The multitude answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?" 21Jesus answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it. 22Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy. 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 completely healthy on the Sabbath? 24Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment." 25Therefore some of them of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this he whom they seek to kill? 26Behold, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is truly the Christ? 27However we know where this man comes from, but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from." 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. 29I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me." 30They sought therefore to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, he won't do more signs than those which this man has done, will he?" 32The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him. 33Then Jesus said, "I will be with you a little while longer, then I go to him who sent me. 34You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come." 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? 36What is this word that he said, 'You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come'?" (WEB)
