John 7:17-27

NLT 17 Anyone who wants to do the will of God will know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own. NIV 17 If anyone chooses to do God's will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. NLT 18 Those who speak for themselves want glory only for themselves, but a person who seeks to honor the one who sent him speaks truth, not lies. NIV 18 He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. NLT 19 Moses gave you the law, but none of you obeys it! In fact, you are trying to kill me.” NIV 19 Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?" NLT 20 The crowd replied, “You’re demon possessed! Who’s trying to kill you?” NIV 20 "You are demon-possessed," the crowd answered. "Who is trying to kill you?" NLT 21 Jesus replied, “I did one miracle on the Sabbath, and you were amazed. NIV 21 Jesus said to them, "I did one miracle, and you are all astonished. NLT 22 But you work on the Sabbath, too, when you obey Moses’ law of circumcision. (Actually, this tradition of circumcision began with the patriarchs, long before the law of Moses.) NIV 22 Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a child on the Sabbath. NLT 23 For if the correct time for circumcising your son falls on the Sabbath, you go ahead and do it so as not to break the law of Moses. So why should you be angry with me for healing a man on the Sabbath? NIV 23 Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath? NLT 24 Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.” NIV 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." NLT 25 Some of the people who lived in Jerusalem started to ask each other, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill? NIV 25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, "Isn't this the man they are trying to kill? NLT 26 But here he is, speaking in public, and they say nothing to him. Could our leaders possibly believe that he is the Messiah? NIV 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 ? NLT 27 But how could he be? For we know where this man comes from. When the Messiah comes, he will simply appear; no one will know where he comes from.” NIV 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from."
