6 Jesus tell dem, “Az not time fo me fo go yet. You guys can go any time. 7 Da peopo inside da world, dey no goin hate you guys. But dey hate me, cuz I tell um dat da kine stuff dey stay doing, dass bad kine stuff. 8 You guys go Jerusalem fo da spesho religious time.

But if one guy like peopo fo tink dat da one who wen send him stay awesome, dat guy stay telling da trut.

You tink he going by da Jewish peopo inside da Greek towns far away, fo teach da peopo dat talk da Greek language, o wat? 36 Wat he mean wen he say, ‘You guys goin look fo me, but you no goin find me,’ an ‘Da place I goin stay, you guys no can go dea’?”

He say, “Whoeva stay thirsty, let um come by me fo drink. 38 Jalike da Bible say, ‘Whoeva trus me, dey come alive inside dem. An dey goin help make da odda peopo come alive too, jalike one river dat get plenny water inside um give da kine water fo help da peopo live.’ ” 39 Jesus say dat bout Godʼs Spirit, cuz bumbye da peopo who trus Jesus goin get Godʼs Spirit. Dat time Jesus wen say dat, dey neva get da Spirit yet, cuz God neva make Jesus come awesome yet.

40 Plenny peopo wen hear him say dat. An dey say, “Fo shua, dis da Spesho Guy dat goin come fo talk fo God!”
41 Da odda guys say, “Dis da Christ guy, da Spesho Guy God Wen Send!”
But da odda guys say, “You tink Godʼs Spesho Guy goin come from Galilee?
