Jesus Teaches at the Feast

1After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand. 3His brothers therefore said to him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that your disciples also may see the works that you do. 4For there is no man that does any thing in secret, and he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world. 5For neither did his brothers believe in him. 6Then Jesus said to them, My time is not yet come: but your time is always ready. 7The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. 8Go you up to this feast: I go not up yet to this feast: for my time is not yet full come. 9When he had said these words to them, he stayed still in Galilee. 10But when his brothers were gone up, then went he also up to the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. 11Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he? 12And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, No; but he deceives the people. 13However, no man spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews. 14Now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15And the Jews marveled, saying, How knows this man letters, having never learned? 16Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18He that speaks of himself seeks his own glory: but he that seeks his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why go you about to kill me? 20The people answered and said, You have a devil: who goes about to kill you? 21Jesus answered and said to them, I have done one work, and you all marvel. 22Moses therefore gave to you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and you on the sabbath day circumcise a man. 23If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are you angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day? 24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
