The life of Jesus. Read Today: Pharisees seek to sieze Jesus; John 7:32-36

John 7:35-36 GNB
(35) The Jewish authorities said among themselves, "Where is he about to go so that we shall not find him? Will he go to the Greek cities where our people live, and teach the Greeks?
(36) He says that we will look for him but will not find him, and that we cannot go where he will be. What does he mean?"

The Jewish people of the day that that the Messiah would go out to the other Jews scattered across the nations. Jesus spoke words just before this that said they would see Him no more. So they pondered if this is what was what He meant by this.

But listen for Jesus response... did you hear it? He said nothing. The reply was not there. They were going to have to take things on faith and not just because He said it.

Times are coming in your life when you will have to take things on faith. God will speak and tell you things but you are just going to have to go with what you know.

Read for next time: Last day of Feast; John 7:37
