“…You go to the festival. I am not[a] going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”
The all important footnote:
[a] John 7:8 Some manuscripts not yet
My questions are:
- Was “yet” added in later manuscripts so that Jesus could not be seen to lie?
- If the “yet” is not added, is there any way we can understand this verse such that Jesus was not lying (since according to verse 10 he did go to the festival)?
