John 7:28-53

GNT 28 As Jesus taught in the Temple, he said in a loud voice, "Do you really know me and know where I am from? I have not come on my own authority. He who sent me, however, is truthful. You do not know him, NIV 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 authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, GNT 29 but I know him, because I come from him and he sent me." NIV 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.” GNT 30 Then they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. NIV 30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. GNT 31 But many in the crowd believed in him and said, "When the Messiah comes, will he perform more miracles than this man has?" NIV 31 Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, “When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?” GNT 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering these things about Jesus, so they and the chief priests sent some guards to arrest him. NIV 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him. GNT 33 Jesus said, "I shall be with you a little while longer, and then I shall go away to him who sent me. NIV 33 Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me. GNT 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me, because you cannot go where I will be." NIV 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.” GNT 35 The Jewish authorities said among themselves, "Where is he about to go so that we shall not find him? Will he go to the Greek cities where our people live, and teach the Greeks? NIV 35 The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? GNT 36 He says that we will look for him but will not find him, and that we cannot go where he will be. What does he mean?" NIV 36 What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?” GNT 37 On the last and most important day of the festival Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice, "Whoever is thirsty should come to me, and NIV 37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. GNT 38 whoever believes in me should drink. As the scripture says, "Streams of life-giving water will pour out from his side.' " NIV 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” GNT 39 Jesus said this about the Spirit, which those who believed in him were going to receive. At that time the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not been raised to glory. NIV 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. GNT 40 Some of the people in the crowd heard him say this and said, "This man is really the Prophet!" NIV 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.” GNT 41 Others said, "He is the Messiah!" But others said, "The Messiah will not come from Galilee! NIV 41 Others said, “He is the Messiah.” Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? GNT 42 The scripture says that the Messiah will be a descendant of King David and will be born in Bethlehem, the town where David lived." NIV 42 Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?” GNT 43 So there was a division in the crowd because of Jesus. NIV 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. GNT 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. NIV 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. GNT 45 When the guards went back, the chief priests and Pharisees asked them, "Why did you not bring him?" NIV 45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and the Pharisees, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him in?” GNT 46 The guards answered, "Nobody has ever talked the way this man does!" NIV 46 “No one ever spoke the way this man does,” the guards replied. GNT 47 "Did he fool you, too?" the Pharisees asked them. NIV 47 “You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted. GNT 48 "Have you ever known one of the authorities or one Pharisee to believe in him? NIV 48 “Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? GNT 49 This crowd does not know the Law of Moses, so they are under God's curse!" NIV 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.” GNT 50 One of the Pharisees there was Nicodemus, the man who had gone to see Jesus before. He said to the others, NIV 50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, GNT 51 "According to our Law we cannot condemn people before hearing them and finding out what they have done." NIV 51 “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?” GNT 52 "Well," they answered, "are you also from Galilee? Study the Scriptures and you will learn that no prophet ever comes from Galilee." NIV 52 They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”
