CHAP. VII.

Jesus, exhorted by his unbelieving kinsmen to shew himself, 10 goeth secretly to the feast; 14 he teacheth in the temple.... 40 Divers opinions concerning Christ...45 The Pharisees are angry at their officers, &c.

- AF. these things Jesus
walked in Galilee: for he
would not walk in Jewry, be-
cause the Jews sought to kill
him.
2 Now the Jews' feast of
tabernacles was at hand.
3 His brethren therefore said
unto him, Depart hence, and go
into Judea, that thy disciples al-
so may see the works that thou
doest.
4 For there is no man that
doeth any thing in secret, and
he himself seeketh to be known
openly. If thou do these things,
shew thyself to the world.
5 (For neither did his breth-
ren believe in him.)
6 Then Jesus said unto them,
My time is not yet come : but
your time is always ready.
7 The world cannot hate
ou; but me it hateth, because
testify of it, that the works
thereof are evil,
8 Go ye up unto this feast: I
go not up yet unto this feast; for
my time is not yet full come.
9 When he had said these
words unto them, heabode stillin

10 II But when his brethren
were gone up, then went he also
up unto the feast, not openly, but
as it Were in Secret. -

muring among thepeople concer-
ning him: for some said, He is

but he deceiveth the people.

openly of him, for fear of the

14 TI Now, about the midst of
the feast, Jesus went up into the
temple and taught.
15 And the Jews marvelled,
saying, How knoweth this man
letters, having never learned 2
16 Jesus answered them, and
said, My doctrine is not mine,
but his o Sent Inle.
17 If any man will do his will,
he shall know of the doctrine,
whether it be of God, or wheth-
er Ispeak of myself.
18. He that speaketh of him-
self, seeketh his own glory: but
he that seeketh his glory that
sent him, the same is true, and
no unrighteousness is in him.
19 Did not Moses give you
the law, and yet none of you
keepeth the law Why go ye
about to kill me? -
20. The people answered and
said, Thou hast a devil : who
goeth about to kill thee 7
21 Jesus answered and said
unto them, I have done one
work, and ye all marvel.
22 Moses therefore gave unto
you circumcision, (not because
it is of Moses, but of the fath-
ers;) and ye on the sabbath-day
circumcise a man.
23 If a man on the sabbath-
day receive circumcision, that
the law of Moses should not be
broken; are ye angry at me, be-
cause I have made a man every
whit whole on the sabbath-
day?

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirs let him come unto me, an drink. 38 He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. . . 39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive, for the holy Ghost was not yet given, because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) 40 T Many of the o therefore, when they heard this saying, said,0f a truth this is the Prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ.

50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)

52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

CHAP. VIII.

1 Christ delivereth a woman taken in adultery; 21 he preacheth himself the light of the world, and justifieth his doctrine.

ESUS went unto the mount of Olives: 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery: and when they had set her in the midst, } They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last : and Jesus was left alone, and the woman sto; in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers! hath no man condemned thee! 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. 12 IThen spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. 14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither Igó : but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. 15 Ye judge after the flesh, I judge no man. 16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not akone, but I and the Father that Sent me. 17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am one that bear witness of myself; and the Father that sent me, beareth witness of

Ille.

19 Then said they unto 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.

we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth; because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin! And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47. He that is of God, heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.. 48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour Ine. 50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 51 Verily, verily, I say unto ou, If a man o o, saying, }. shall never see death.
