Day 75

John 7

7:1 After these things, Jesus was walking in Galilee, for he wouldn't walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.

 

7:2 Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand.

 

7:3 His brothers therefore said to him, "Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see your works which you do.

 

7:4 For no one does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, reveal yourself to the world."

 

7:5 For even his brothers didn't believe in him.

 

7:6 Jesus therefore said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.

 

7:7 The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil.

 

7:8 You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled."

 

7:9 Having said these things to them, he stayed in Galilee.

 

7:10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret.

 

7:11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, "Where is he?"

 

7:12 There was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him. Some said, "He is a good man." Others said, "Not so, but he leads the multitude astray."

 

7:13 Yet no one spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews.

 

7:14 But when it was now the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught.

 

7:15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?"

 

7:16 Jesus therefore answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.

 

7:17 If anyone desires to do his will, he will know about the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I am speaking from myself.

 

7:18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

 

7:19 Didn't Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?"

 

7:20 The multitude answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?"

 

7:21 Jesus answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it.

 

7:22 Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy.

 

7:23 If a boy receives circumcision on the Sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me, because I made a man completely healthy on the Sabbath?

 

7:24 Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

 

7:25 Therefore some of them of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this he whom they seek to kill?

 

7:26 Behold, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is truly the Christ?

 

7:27 However we know where this man comes from, but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from."

 

7:28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching and saying, "You both know me, and know where I am from. I have not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you don't know.

 

7:29 I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me."

 

7:30 They sought therefore to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.

 

7:31 But of the multitude, many believed in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, he won't do more signs than those which this man has done, will he?"

 

7:32 The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.

 

7:33 Then Jesus said, "I will be with you a little while longer, then I go to him who sent me.

 

7:34 You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come."

 

7:35 The Jews therefore said among themselves, "Where will this man go that we won't find him? Will he go to the Dispersion among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

 

7:36 What is this word that he said, 'You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come'?"

 

7:37 Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink!

 

7:38 He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water."

 

7:39 But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. For the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus wasn't yet glorified.

 

7:40 Many of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet."

 

7:41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "What, does the Christ come out of Galilee?

 

7:42 Hasn't the Scripture said that the Christ comes of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem,  the village where David was?"

 

7:43 So there arose a division in the multitude because of him.

 

7:44 Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him.

 

7:45 The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why didn't you bring him?"

 

7:46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!"

 

7:47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, "You aren't also led astray, are you?

 

7:48 Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees?

 

7:49 But this multitude that doesn't know the law is accursed."

 

7:50 Nicodemus (he who came to him by night, being one of them) said to them,

 

7:51 "Does our law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?"

 

7:52 They answered him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search, and see that no prophet has arisen out of Galilee."

 

7:53 Everyone went to his own house.

 

I John 1

 

1:1 That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we saw, and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life

 

1:2 and the life was revealed, and we have seen, and testify, and declare to you the life, the eternal life, which was with the Father, and was revealed to us;

 

1:3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us. Yes, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son, Jesus Christ.

 

1:4 And we write these things to you, that our joy may be fulfilled.

 

1:5 This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

 

1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don't tell the truth.

 

1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.

 

1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

 

1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 

1:10 If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

I John 2

 

2:1 My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous.

 

2:2 And he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world.

 

2:3 This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments.

 

2:4 One who says, "I know him," and doesn't keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth isn't in him.

 

2:5 But whoever keeps his word, God's love has most certainly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him:

 

2:6 he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked.

 

2:7 Brothers, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.

 

2:8 Again, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing away, and the true light already shines.

 

2:9 He who says he is in the light and hates his brother, is in the darkness even until now.

 

2:10 He who loves his brother remains in the light, and there is no occasion for stumbling in him.

 

2:11 But he who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in the darkness, and doesn't know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

 

2:12 I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

 

2:13 I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, little children, because you know the Father.

 

2:14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

 

2:15 Don't love the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father's love isn't in him.

 

2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, isn't the Father's, but is the world's.

 

2:17 The world is passing away with its lusts, but he who does God's will remains forever.

 

2:18 Little children, these are the end times, and as you heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen. By this we know that it is the final hour.

 

2:19 They went out from us, but they didn't belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have continued with us. But they left, that they might be revealed that none of them belong to us.

 

2:20 You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge.

 

2:21 I have not written to you because you don't know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth.

 

2:22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.

 

2:23 Whoever denies the Son, the same doesn't have the Father. He who confesses the Son has the Father also.

 

2:24 Therefore, as for you, let that remain in you which you heard from the beginning. If that which you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son, and in the Father.

 

2:25 This is the promise which he promised us, the eternal life.

 

2:26 These things I have written to you concerning those who would lead you astray.

 

2:27 As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.

 

2:28 Now, little children, remain in him, that when he appears, we may have boldness, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.


2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of him.
