But after his brothers had gone to the festival, Jesus went. He didn't go publicly but secretly.
The Jews were looking for Jesus in the crowd at the festival. They kept asking, "Where is that man?"
The crowds argued about Jesus. Some people said, "He's a good man," while others said, "No he isn't. He deceives the people."
Yet, no one would talk openly about him because they were afraid of the Jews.
When the festival was half over, Jesus went to the temple courtyard and began to teach.
The Jews were surprised and asked, "How can this man be so educated when he hasn't gone to school?"
Jesus responded to them, "What I teach doesn't come from me but from the one who sent me.
Those who want to follow the will of God will know if what I teach is from God or if I teach my own thoughts.
Those who speak their own thoughts are looking for their own glory. But the man who wants to bring glory to the one who sent him is a true teacher and doesn't have dishonest motives.
Didn't Moses give you his teachings? Yet, none of you does what Moses taught you. So why do you want to kill me?"
The crowd answered, "You're possessed by a demon! Who wants to kill you?"
