A Harmony of the Gospels for Students of the Life

Footnote 2 Many ancient authorities add


[Footnote 1: Some ancient authorities read _and seeketh it to be known openly_.]

[Footnote 2: Many ancient authorities omit _yet_.]

Sect. 95. HE GOES PRIVATELY TO JERUSALEM THROUGH SAMARIA

Luke 9:51-56 |John 7:10 | 51 And it came to pass, when |10 But when his brethren were the days [1]were well-nigh come| gone up unto the feast, then that he should be received up, | went he also up, not publicly, he stedfastly set his face to | but as it were in secret. 52 go to Jerusalem,[a] and sent | messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a 53 village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was _as though he were_ going to 54 Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw _this_, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we bid fire to come down from heaven, 55 and consume them[2] [_see 2 Kings 1:10-12_]? But he turned, and 56 rebuked them[3]. And they went to another village.

[Footnote 1: Gr. _were being fulfilled_.]

[Footnote 2: Many ancient authorities add, _even as Elijah did_.]

[Footnote 3: Some ancient authorities add, _and said, Ye

know not what manner of spirit ye are of._ Some, but fewer, add also _For the Son of man came not to destroy men's lives, but to save_ them.]

[Footnote a: See note 10 at end of Harmony for the combination of Luke and John and the three journeyings in Luke toward Jerusalem.]

PART IX

THE LATER JUDEAN MINISTRY

(Probably Tabernacles to Dedication, about three months, in A.D. 29 or 28 if Ministry only two and a half years in length)

_This ministry is given only by John and Luke. John gives the Jerusalem ministry and Luke that in the country of Judea. Sects. 96-111._

Sect. 96. THE COMING OF JESUS TO THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES CREATES INTENSE EXCITEMENT CONCERNING THE MESSIAHSHIP

_The attempt of the rulers (the Jews, the chief priests, and Pharisees) to arrest him. Division of sentiment in the Galilean multitude at the feast. Impressions of the Jerusalem populace and the Roman officers and of Nicodemus._

John 7:11-52

11 The Jews therefore sought him at the feast, and said, Where is 12 he? And there was much murmuring among the multitudes concerning him: some said, He is a good man; others said, Not so, but he 13 leadeth the multitude astray. Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews. 14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the 15 temple, and taught. The Jews therefore marvelled, saying, How 16 knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Jesus therefore answered them, and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that 17 sent me. If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it be of God, or _whether_ I speak from myself. 18 He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of him
