John 7:10John 7:24

(4) Life's Seeking of God's Glory

10 But when His brothers had gone up to the feast, then He Himself also went up, 1not openly, but as it were in secret.

11 The Jews therefore asought Him at the feast and said, Where is He?

12 And there was much murmuring about Him among the crowds: asome said, He is a good man; but others said, No; rather He leads the crowd astray.

13 Yet no one spoke openly about Him for afear of the JEWS.

14 But when it was now the middle of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and began to teach.

15 The Jews therefore marveled and said, How does this man know letters, 1without ever having studied?

16 Jesus therefore answered them and said, aMy teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me.

17 If anyone resolves to do His will, he will know concerning the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.

18 He who speaks from himself aseeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of Him who sent Him, this One is true, and unrighteousness is not in Him.

19 aHas not Moses given you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law. Why do you bseek to kill Me?

20 The crowd answered, You ahave a demon! Who is seeking to kill You?

21 Jesus answered and said to them, I did aone work, and you all marvel.

22 For the same reason aMoses gave you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man.

23 If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with Me because I amade an entire man well on the Sabbath?

24 Do not judge according to 1appearance, but judge the righteous judgment.
