John 7:14-16 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

14 [a]Now when [b]half the feast was done, Jesus went up into the Temple, and taught.

15 And the Jews marveled, saying, How knoweth this man the Scriptures, seeing that he never learned!

16 [c]Jesus answered them, and said, [d]My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.


  1. John 7:14 Christ striveth with goodness against the wickedness of the world: in the mean season the most part of men take occasion of offense even by that fame, whereby they ought to have been stirred up to embrace Christ.
  2. John 7:14 About the fourth day of the feast.
  3. John 7:16 Therefore are there few to whom the Gospel favoreth well, because the study of godliness is very rare.
  4. John 7:16 See John 5:22, and he speaketh this after the opinion of the Jews, as if he said, My doctrine is not mine, that is, it is not his whom you take to be a man as others are, and therefore set light by him, but it is his that sent me.

Jesus Teaches at the Festival

14 Not until halfway through the festival did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. 15 The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?”

16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me.
