FEAST OF TABERNACLES on the 15th day of the 7th month (around late SEP to mid-OCT); live in booths for 7 days (Lev 23:34,42)


Calendar of feasts

Jesus’ unbelieving family challenge Him to publicly present Himself and His miracles in Judea
Jesus states that the timing was not right for Him and adds that the world hated Him because He was revealing their works to be evil (and not because He was not the Messiah)

 

 

 

7:2-10

A village
in Samaria

James & John want to call fire down
upon the Samaritans who did not welcome Jesus because His face was set toward Jerusalem

7:11-13

Temple

Midst of the feast: Teaching with authority

Challenge: Why do you seek to kill me because I healed a man's WHOLE body (cf. circumcision) on the Sabbath?

 

 

 

7:14-36

 

Last day of the feast: “Whoever believes in me, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water

Outcome: (1) People are divided as to who Jesus was; some are reasoning, “Could not be the Messiah because He came from Galilee, not Bethlehem!” (2) Unsuccessful attempts to arrest Jesus + Nicodemus’ attempt to stand up for Jesus in the Sanhedrin

 

 

 

7:37-52

 

Morning after: Forgives woman caught in adultery

Stooped, stood; walked away, one by one from oldest to youngest

8:12-20

 

Warning: “You will die in your sins unless you believe that I Am who I claim to be”

Outcome:Many believed in Him
(cf. John 8:33,37 ... not true believers but mere profession of faith?)

 

 

 

8:21-30

Temple

Controversy with the Jews over (1) their sonship of Abraham, of God or of the devil and (2) “Anyone who obeys my teaching will never die!”
