G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
John 7



Other Authors
Verses 1-53

So far, John has recorded incidents in the first year of our Lord's ministry. We now come to a comparatively brief section in which he records happenings happenings in the central and crowded two years. He arrived in Jerusalem at the feast of Tabernacles. His fame had spread, and there was discussion concerning Him there. Having arrived, He taught in the Temple precincts. In doing so He rebuked their attitude, and referred to the miracle wrought on an earlier occasion in the Bethesda porches. On the last day of the feast He stood and made His great utterance concerning the flowing of the rivers, claiming that He was able to satisfy thirst, and, moreover, that those who received such satisfaction from Him should become channels through whom the overflowing rivers should pass.

The religious authorities had sent officers to arrest Him, but owing unquestionably to the wonder of His speech they were unable so to do, for they said when they were asked why they had failed, "Never man so spake." One voice was raised at this point in His defense, the voice of Nicodemus.

At the close of the day "every man went to his own house."
