25 Now some of them from Jerusalem said, “Is this not He whom they seek to bkill? 26 But look! He speaks boldly, and they say nothing to Him. cDo the rulers know indeed that this is 4truly the Christ? 27 dHowever, we know where this Man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from.”
28 Then Jesus cried out, as He taught in the temple, saying, e“You both know Me, and you know where I am from; and fI have not come of Myself, but He who sent Me gis true, hwhom you do not know. 29 5But iI know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me.”
30 Therefore jthey sought to take Him; but kno one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come. 31 And lmany of the people believed in Him, and said, “When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
