Scripture: John 7:1-13
After the feeding of the five thousand and Jesus’ follow-up teaching on the bread from heaven in John 6, things take a bit of a turn in John 7. Tensions are rising, the crowd is increasingly divided in their opinions, and Jesus appears to be in some disagreement with his family about the best course of action. Things should be taking off, but instead they are getting more complicated! How does Jesus respond under the pressure? How does the crowd? The leaders? How do we make choices when the going gets tough?
