John 7:3-9 New International Version

3  Jesus' brothers said to him, "Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that your disciples there may see the works you do. 4  No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world." 5  For even his own brothers did not believe in him. 6  Therefore Jesus told them, "My time is not yet here; for you any time will do. 7  The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil. 8  You go to the festival. I am not[1] going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come." 9  After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.
