- How is Jesus not lying in John 7? 2 answers
I know Jesus is not a liar, but an incident in the New Testament has puzzled me for a long time. Jesus was asked by his disciples if he was going to go to a feast and he said he wasn't, but, later he went:
You go up to the feast. I am not going up to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come. (John 7:8, ESV)
But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly but in private. (7:10)
Could someone explain this contradiction?
