John 7:1-27

GNT 1 After this, Jesus traveled in Galilee; he did not want to travel in Judea, because the Jewish authorities there were wanting to kill him. NIV 1 After this, Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him. GNT 2 The time for the Festival of Shelters was near, NIV 2 But when the Jewish Festival of Tabernacles was near, GNT 3 so Jesus' brothers said to him, "Leave this place and go to Judea, so that your followers will see the things that you are doing. NIV 3 Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do. GNT 4 People don't hide what they are doing if they want to be well known. Since you are doing these things, let the whole world know about you! NIV 4 No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” GNT 5 (Not even his brothers believed in him.) NIV 5 For even his own brothers did not believe in him. GNT 6 Jesus said to them, "The right time for me has not yet come. Any time is right for you. NIV 6 Therefore Jesus told them, “My time is not yet here; for you any time will do. GNT 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I keep telling it that its ways are bad. NIV 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil. GNT 8 You go on to the festival. I am not going to this festival, because the right time has not come for me." NIV 8 You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.” GNT 9 He said this and then stayed on in Galilee. NIV 9 After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee. GNT 10 After his brothers had gone to the festival, Jesus also went; however, he did not go openly, but secretly. NIV 10 However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret. GNT 11 The Jewish authorities were looking for him at the festival. "Where is he?" they asked. NIV 11 Now at the festival the Jewish leaders were watching for Jesus and asking, “Where is he?” GNT 12 There was much whispering about him in the crowd. "He is a good man," some people said. "No," others said, "he fools the people." NIV 12 Among the crowds there was widespread whispering about him. Some said, “He is a good man.” Others replied, “No, he deceives the people.” GNT 13 But no one talked about him openly, because they were afraid of the Jewish authorities. NIV 13 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the leaders. GNT 14 The festival was nearly half over when Jesus went to the Temple and began teaching. NIV 14 Not until halfway through the festival did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. GNT 15 The Jewish authorities were greatly surprised and said, "How does this man know so much when he has never been to school?" NIV 15 The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?” GNT 16 Jesus answered, "What I teach is not my own teaching, but it comes from God, who sent me. NIV 16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. GNT 17 Whoever is willing to do what God wants will know whether what I teach comes from God or whether I speak on my own authority. NIV 17 Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. GNT 18 Those who speak on their own authority are trying to gain glory for themselves. But he who wants glory for the one who sent him is honest, and there is nothing false in him. NIV 18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. GNT 19 Moses gave you the Law, didn't he? But not one of you obeys the Law. Why are you 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?” GNT 20 "You have a demon in you!" the crowd answered. "Who is trying to kill you?" NIV 20 “You are demon-possessed,” the crowd answered. “Who is trying to kill you?” GNT 21 Jesus answered, "I performed one miracle, and you were all surprised. NIV 21 Jesus said to them, “I did one miracle, and you are all amazed. GNT 22 Moses ordered you to circumcise your sons (although it was not Moses but your ancestors who started it), and so you circumcise a boy on the Sabbath. NIV 22 Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision (though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you circumcise a boy on the Sabbath. GNT 23 If a boy is circumcised on the Sabbath so that Moses' Law is not broken, why are you angry with me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath? NIV 23 Now if a boy can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing a man’s whole body on the Sabbath? GNT 24 Stop judging by external standards, and judge by true standards." NIV 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.” GNT 25 Some of the people of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this the man the authorities 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? GNT 26 Look! He is talking in public, and they say nothing against him! Can it be that they really know 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 Messiah? GNT 27 But when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from. And we all know where this man comes from." NIV 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.”
