"Did not Moses give you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law. Why are you looking for an opportunity to kill me?"
The crowd answered, "You have a demon! Who is trying to kill you?"
Jesus answered them, "I performed one work, and all of you are astonished.
Moses gave you circumcision (it is, of course, not from Moses, but from the patriarchs), and you circumcise a man on the sabbath.
If a man receives circumcision on the sabbath in order that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me because I healed a man's whole body on the sabbath?
Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment."

Yet we know where this man is from; but when the Messiah b comes, no one will know where he is from."
