Sunday Morning - September 8, 1996
Text: John 7:1-9 "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he
would not walk in Jewry [JUDEA], because the Jews sought to kill him.
2. Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
3. His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart
hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples [THAT LEFT YOU] also may see the
works that thou doest. 4. For there is no man that doeth
any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do
these things, show thyself to the world.

5. For neither did his brethren believe in him. 6. Then
Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your [HIS BROTHERS]
time is alway ready. 7. The world cannot hate you [HIS BROTHERS];
but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
8. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast:
for my time is not yet full come. 9. When he had said these words unto
them, he abode still in Galilee."
JESUS WAS GOING
