After these things, Yeshua walked in the Galil, for he would not walk in Yehudah, because the Yehudim sought to kill him.
Now the feast of the Yehudim, the Feast of Sukkot, was at hand.
His brothers therefore said to him, "Depart from here, and go into Yehudah, that your talmidim also may see your works which you do.
For no one does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, reveal yourself to the world."
For even his brothers didn't believe in him.
Yeshua therefore said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.
The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil.
You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled."
Having said these things to them, he stayed in the Galil.
But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret.
The Yehudim therefore sought him at the feast, and said, "Where is he?"
There 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."
Yet no one spoke openly of him for fear of the Yehudim.
But when it was now the midst of the feast, Yeshua went up into the temple and taught.
The Yehudim therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?"
Yeshua therefore answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.
If anyone desires to do his will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I speak from myself.
He 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.
Didn't Moshe give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?"
The multitude answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?"
Yeshua answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it.
Moshe has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moshe, but of the fathers), and on the Shabbat you circumcise a boy.
If a boy receives circumcision on the Shabbat, that the law of Moshe may not be broken, are you angry with me, because I made a man every bit whole on the Shabbat?
Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
Some therefore of them of Yerushalayim said, "Isn't this he whom they seek to kill?
Behold, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is truly the Messiah?
However we know where this man comes from, but when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he comes from."
Yeshua 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.
I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me."
They sought therefore to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.
But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Messiah comes, will he do more signs than those which this man has done?"
The Perushim heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief Kohanim and the Perushim sent officers to arrest him.
Then Yeshua said, "Yet a little while, am I with you, then I go to him who sent me.
You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come."
The Yehudim therefore said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we won't find him? Will he go to the Diaspora among the Yevanim, and teach the Yevanim?
What is this word that he said, 'You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come?'"
Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Yeshua stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink!
He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water."
But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. For the Ruach HaKodesh was not yet given, because Yeshua wasn't yet glorified.
Many of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet."
Others said, "This is the Messiah." But some said, "What, does the Messiah come out of the Galil?
Hasn't the Scripture said that the Messiah comes of the seed of David, and from Beit-Lechem, the village where David was?"
So there arose a division in the multitude because of him.
Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him.
The officers therefore came to the chief Kohanim and Perushim, and they said to them, "Why didn't you bring him?"
The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!"
The Perushim therefore answered them, "Are you also led astray?
Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Perushim?
But this multitude that doesn't know the law is accursed."
Nakdimon (he who came to him by night, being one of them) said to them,
"Does our law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?"
They answered him, "Are you also from the Galil? Search, and see that no prophet has arisen out of the Galil."
Everyone went to his own house,
