CEBCommon English Bible
14Halfway through the festival, Jesus went up to the temple and started to teach. 15Astonished, the Jewish leaders asked, "He’s never been taught! How has he mastered the Law?"
16Jesus responded, "My teaching isn’t mine but comes from the one who sent me. 17Whoever wants to do God’s will can tell whether my teaching is from God or whether I speak on my own. 18Those who speak on their own seek glory for themselves. Those who seek the glory of him who sent me are people of truth; there’s no falsehood in them.
