His brothers basically mock Jesus, the crowd is looking for Jesus, and the religious leaders want him dead. But, in the middle of the Feast of Booths, Jesus teaches. And, at the heart of His teaching, Jesus raises an interesting issue. He states that belief will hinge on whether a person believes Jesus' teaching is His own or rests on the authority of the Father who sent Him. This entire text leads us to C. S. Lewis classic argument about Jesus' identity. Is Jesus a good man and a great moral teacher, or something more? Is this Jesus guy a nut job, an evil bold-faced liar, a legend made up by his followers, or is He Lord of all. Jesus' life and ministry will not let us stand on middle ground. We are confronted with this question and will eventually have to choose.
