GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry,
because 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 Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
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.
neither did his brethren believe in him.
6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time
is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7 The world cannot hate you;
but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
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, he abode still in
10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto
the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
11 Then the Jews sought him
at the feast, and said, Where is he?
12 And there was much murmuring among
the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay;
but he deceiveth the people.
13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear
of the Jews.
14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple,
15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters,
having never learned?
16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not
mine, but his that sent me.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know
of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory
that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
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?
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 fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise
23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of
Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every
whit whole on the sabbath day?
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but
judge righteous judgment.
25 Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this
he, whom they seek to kill?
26 But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing
unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he
28 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 is true,
whom ye know not.
29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his
hour was not yet come.
31 And many of the people believed on him, and said,
When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
32 The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him;
and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him
that sent me.
34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am,
thither ye cannot come.
35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will
he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles,
and teach the Gentiles?
36 What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye
shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and 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
40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying,
said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
41 Others said, This is the Christ.
But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
42 Hath not the scripture
said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem,
where David was?
43 So there was a division among the people because of him.
44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto
them, Why have ye not brought him?
46 The officers answered, Never man spake
like this man.
47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
50 Nicodemus saith unto them,
(he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
51 Doth our law judge
any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
52 They answered and
said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee
ariseth no prophet.
53 And every man went unto his own house.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Seven
7- Do you agree? Are YOUR best works all evil, as Jesus said?
37-38- Have you come only unto Jesus? Do words of "living water" flow out of you?
Do you talk to lost sinners about Jesus? Would you if God helped you?
40-44- The answer is in Chapter 20:30-31. Do you believe that?
45-49- Will you turn from religious leaders who reject Jesus?
you see the great controversy and tension the people in this chapter had over
Jesus Christ? Will you stand with Jesus Christ even though you end up being divided
from your friends and maybe you family, as Verse 43 indicates?
