Yet many in the crowd believed in him and were saying, "When the Messiah comes, will he do more signs than this man has done?"
The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering such things about him, and the chief priests and Pharisees sent temple police to arrest him.
Jesus then said, "I will be with you a little while longer, and then I am going to him who sent me.
You will search for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come."
The Jews said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we will not find him? Does he intend to go to the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks?
What does he mean by saying, "You will search for me and you will not find me' and "Where I am, you cannot come'?"
