Bible: John 7:2-9

7:2 Now the Jewish feast of Tabernacles 1  was near. 2  7:3 So Jesusbrothers 3  advised him, “Leave here and go to Judea so your disciples may see your miracles that you are performing. 4  7:4 For no one who seeks to make a reputation for himself 5  does anything in secret. 6  If you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” 7:5 (For not even his own brothers believed in him.) 7 

7:6 So Jesus replied, 8 My time 9  has not yet arrived, 10  but you are ready at any opportunity! 11  7:7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil. 7:8 You go up 12  to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast 13  because my time 14  has not yet fully arrived.” 15  7:9 When he had said this, he remained in Galilee.
