14 About the middle of the feast Jesus went up (E)into the temple and began teaching. 15 The Jews therefore (F)marveled, saying, “How is it that this man has learning,[a] when he has never studied?” 16 So Jesus answered them, (G)“My teaching is not mine, but his (H)who sent me. 17 (I)If anyone's will is to do God's[b] will, (J)he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I (K)am speaking on my own authority. 18 The one who speaks on his own authority (L)seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood. 19 (M)Has not Moses given you the law? Yet none of you keeps the law. (N)Why do you seek to kill me?” 20 The crowd answered, (O)“You have a demon! Who is seeking to kill you?”
