John 7:1-10

The Unbelief of Jesus' Brothers 1After this Jesus went about in Galilee. He did not wish to go about in Judea because the Jews were looking for an opportunity to kill him.2Now the Jewish festival of Booths was near.3So his brothers said to him, “Leave here and go to Judea so that your disciples also may see the works you are doing;4for no one who wants to be widely known acts in secret. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.”5(For not even his brothers believed in him.)6Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always here.7The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify against it that its works are evil.8Go to the festival yourselves. I am not going to this festival, for my time has not yet fully come.”9After saying this, he remained in Galilee.Jesus at the Festival of Booths 10But after his brothers had gone to the festival, then he also went, not publicly but as it were in secret.
