Now it came to pass, when the days for His being received up were drawing near, and the Tabernacles, the feast of the Jews, was at hand, then His brothers said to Him, "Depart hence and go into Judea, that Thy disciples also may see Thy works which Thou doest. For no one doeth anything in secret, and himself seeketh to be known openly. If Thou doest these things, manifest Thyself to the world." For even His brothers did not believe in Him.
Jesus, therefore, saith to them, "My time is not yet come; but your time is always ready. The world cannot hate you; but it hateth Me, because I testify concerning it, that its works are evil. Go ye up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast; because My time has not yet been fulfilled," Having said these things to them, He continued in Galilee. But when His brothers were gone up to the feast, He steadfastly set His face to go up to Jerusalem, and went up, not openly, but as it were in secret. And He sent messengers before His face, and they went and entered into a Samaritan village, so as to prepare for Him. And they did not receive Him, because His face was as if He were going to Jerusalem. But when His disciples, James and John, saw it, they said, "Lord, wilt Thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them (even as Elijah did)?" But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "Ye know not of what spirit ye are; for the Son of man did not come to destroy, but to save men's lives". And they went to another village.
