81. Jesus reproveth his kinsmen : goeth up from

Galilee to the feast of tabernacles : teacheth
in the temple. The Pharisees chide with

Nicodemus.
a Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at J. 7. 2
hand. His brethren therefore said unto him, 3
Depart hence, and go into Judæa, that thy dis-
ciples also may see the works that thou doest.
For there is no man that doeth any thing in 4
secret, and he himself seeketh to be known
openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself
to the world. For neither did his brethren 5
believe in him. Then Jesus said unto them, 6
“ My time is not yet come: but your time is
“alway ready. The world cannot hate you; but 7
“ me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the
“ works thereof are evil. Go ye up unto this 8
“ feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for
“ my time is not yet full come.” When he had 9
said these words unto them, he abode still in
Galilee.

But when his brethren were gone up, then 10
went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but
as it were in secret. Then the Jews sought him 11
at the feast, and said, Where is he? And there 12
was much ? murmuring among the people con-
cerning him: for some said, He is a good man:
others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear 13
of the Jews.

Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went 14
Acts 2. 7. up into the temple, and taught. And the Jews 15

them, and said, “ My doctrine is not mine, but 17 “ his that sent me. If any man ? will do his

Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very 27 Christ? howbeit we know this man whence he

is : but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth 28 whence he is. Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, “ Ye both know me, and

ye know whence I am: and I am not come “ of myself, but he that sent me his true, whom Rom. 3. 29" ye know not. But I know him : for I am “ from him, and he hath sent me.”

Then they sought to take him : but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not 31 yet come. And many of the people believed

do more miracles than these which this man
hath done? The Pharisees heard that the peo- 32
ple murmured such things concerning him; and
the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers
to take him.

Then said Jesus unto them, “Yet a little 33

“ while am I with you, and then I go unto him i Hos. 5. 6. “ that sent me. Ye shall seek me, and shall 34 “ not find me : and where I am,

selves, Whither will he go, that we shall not * Is. 11. 12. find him ? will he go unto the dispersed among Jam. 1. 1; the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? what 36

manner of saying is this that he said, “ Ye shall

“ seek me, and shall not find me : and where I Lev. 23. “ am, thither ye cannot come?” 'In the last day, 37

that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and m Is. 55. 1. cried, saying, “If any man thirst, let him come Rev.2217.“ unto me, and drink. "He that believeth on 38

yet glorified.)

Many of the people therefore, when they 40 9 Deut. 18 heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the

Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But 41

some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? * Ps 132. " hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh 42

Then came the officers to the chief priests 45 , and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him? The officers answer-46 ed, Never man spake like this man. Then 47

this woman was taken in adultery, in the very 5 act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, a Lev. 20.

that such should be stoned: but what sayest 22. 22. 6 thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, 7 as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, “He that is without sin among Deu.17.7. 8“ you, let him first cast a stone at her.” And

again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by Rom. 2. their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and

Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing 10 in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up him

her, “ Woman, where are those thine accusers? 11 hath no man condemned thee?” She said, No

83. Christ the light of the world : he answereth

the Jews that boasted of Abraham : convey

THEN spake Jesus again unto them, saying, J. 8. 12 “I am the light of the world: he that followeth “ me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have “ the light of life.” The Pharisees therefore said 13 unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. Jesus answered and said 14 unto them, “ Though I bear record of myself, " yet my record is true : for I know whence I “ came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell “ whence I come, and whither I go. Ye judge 15 “ after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if 16

I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not

“ beareth witness of me.” Then said they unto 19
him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, “Ye
“ neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had
“ known me, ye should have known my Father
“ also.” These words spake Jesus in the trea- 20
sury, as he taught in the temple: and no man
laid hands on him ; for his hour was not yet
come. Then said Jesus again unto them, “I go 21
“ my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die
“ in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.”
Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? be- 22
cause he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

And he said unto them, “Ye are from beneath; 23 " 1 John “ I am from above: "ye are of this world; I
