The Life and Teachings
of Jesus
A Restatement of the Gospels

73. The First Talk in the Temple (continued)

        28So Jesus proclaimed as he taught in the temple, “You know me and you know where I come from? But I have not come for myself; and he who sent me is true. 29I know him, for I come from him and he sent me.”
        30So they sought to arrest him; but no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31Yet many of the people believed in him; they said, “When the Messiah appears, will he do more signs than this man has done?”
        32The Pharisees heard the crowd thus muttering about him, and the chief priests and Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.
        33Jesus then said, “I shall be with you a little longer, and then I go to him who sent me. 34And then you will seek me, but you will not find me; for where I am you cannot come.”
        35The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we shall not find him? Does he intend to go among the Greeks? 36What does he mean by saying, 'You will seek me and you will not find me,' and, 'Where I am you cannot come'?”
        45The officers then went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, “Why did you not bring him?”
        46The officers answered, “No man ever spoke like this man!”
        47The Pharisees answered them,“Are you also led astray? 48Have any of the authorities or the Pharisees believed in him? 49But this people who know not the law are accursed.”
        50And one of them said, 51“Does our law judge a man without first giving him a hearing and learning what he does?”
        52They replied, “Are you from Galilee too? Search and you will see that no prophet is to rise from Galilee.”
