At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, "Isn't this the man they are trying to kill?1
Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities2 really concluded that he is the Christ ?3
But we know where this man is from;4 when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from."
Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts,5 cried out, "Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from.6 I am not here on my own, but he who sent me is true.7 You do not know him,
but I know him8 because I am from him and he sent me."9
At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him,10 because his time had not yet come.11
Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him.12 They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs13 than this man?"
