Jesus, exhorted by his unbelieving kinsmen to shew himself at Jerusalem at the feast of tabernacles, refuseth, but afterward goeth up in secret. The Jews seek him, and differ in their sentiments of him. He teacheth in the temple; some are ready to lay hands on him, others believe; the rulers send officers to seize him. Christ foretelleth his departure to the Father, and promiseth the Holy Spirit to believers. Various opinions concerning him. The officers struck with his discourse return without him, and are rebuked by the Pharisees, who chide with Nicodemus for taking his part.
