Darby's Synopsis
   1: After these things, Jesus walked in Galilee, for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.
   2: Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand.
   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.
   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."
   5: For even his brothers didn't believe in him.
   6: Jesus therefore said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.
   7: The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil.
   8: You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled."
   9: Having said these things to them, he stayed in Galilee.
   10: But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret.
   11: The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, "Where is he?"
   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."
   13: Yet no one spoke openly of him for fear of the Jews.
   14: But when it was now the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught.
   15: The Jews therefore marveled, saying, "How does this man know letters, having never been educated?"
   16: Jesus therefore answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.
   17: If anyone desires to do his will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I speak from myself.
   18: He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
   19: Didn't Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill me?"
   20: The multitude answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill you?"
   21: Jesus answered them, "I did one work, and you all marvel because of it.
   22: Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy.
   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 every bit whole on the Sabbath?
   24: Don't judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
   25: Therefore some of them of Jerusalem said, "Isn't this he whom they seek to kill?
   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?
   27: However we know where this man comes from, but when the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from."
   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.
   29: I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me."
   30: They sought therefore to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.
   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?"
   32: The Pharisees heard the multitude murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.
   33: Then Jesus said, "Yet a little while, am I with you, then I go to him who sent me.
   34: You will seek me, and won't find me; and where I am, you can't come."
   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?
   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?'"
   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!
   38: He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water."
   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.
   40: Many of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, "This is truly the prophet."
   41: Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "What, does the Christ come out of Galilee?
   42: Hasn't the Scripture said that the Christ comes of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?"
   43: So there arose a division in the multitude because of him.
   44: Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him.
   45: The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why didn't you bring him?"
   46: The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this man!"
   47: The Pharisees therefore answered them, "You aren't also led astray, are you?
   48: Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees?
   49: But this multitude that doesn't know the law is accursed."
   50: Nicodemus (he who came to him by night, being one of them) said to them,
   51: "Does our law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?"
   52: They answered him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search, and see that no prophet has arisen out of Galilee."
   53: Everyone went to his own house,
