English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
25 Some of the people of Jerusalem therefore said, "Is not this the man whom they seek to kill? 25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, "Isn't this the man they are trying to kill?
26 And here he is, speaking openly, and they say nothing to him! Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Christ? 26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Christ ?
27 But we know where this man comes from, and when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from." 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from."
28 So Jesus proclaimed, as he taught in the temple, "You know me, and you know where I come from? But I have not come of my own accord. He who sent me is true, and him you do not know. 28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, "Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him,
29 I know him, for I come from him, and he sent me." 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me."
30 So they were seeking to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come.
31 Yet many of the people believed in him. They said, "When the Christ appears, will he do more signs than this man has done?" 31 Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs than this man?"
