John 8:59

Context
8:59 Then they picked up 1  stones to throw at him, 2  but Jesus hid himself and went out from the temple area. 3 

John 10:31-33

Context

10:31 The Jewish leaders 4  picked up rocks again to stone him to death. 10:32 Jesus said to them, 5  “I have shown you many good deeds 6  from the Father. For which one of them are you going to stone me?” 10:33 The Jewish leaders 7  replied, 8  “We are not going to stone you for a good deed 9  but for blasphemy, 10  because 11  you, a man, are claiming to be God.” 12 

1 tn Grk “they took up.”

2 sn Jesus’ Jewish listeners understood his claim to deity, rejected it, and picked up stones to throw at him for what they considered blasphemy.

3 tc Most later witnesses (A Θc Ë1,13 Ï) have at the end of the verse “passing through their midst, he went away in this manner” (διελθὼν διὰ μέσου καὶ παρῆγεν οὕτως, dielqwn dia mesou kai parhgen {outw"), while many others have similar permutations (so א1,2 C L N Ψ 070 33 579 892 1241 al). The wording is similar to two other texts: Luke 4:30 (διελθὼν διὰ μέσου; in several mss αὐτῶν ἐπορεύετο καί [autwn eporeueto kai] is found between this phrase and παρῆγεν, strengthening the parallel with Luke 4:30) and John 9:1 (παρῆγεν; cf. παράγων [paragwn] there). The effect is to signal Jesus’ departure as a miraculous cloaking. As such, the additional statement has all the earmarks of scribal amplification. Further, the best and earliest witnesses (Ì66,75 א* B D W Θ* lat sa) lack these words, rendering the shorter text virtually certain.

tn Grk “from the temple.”

4 tn Or “the Jewish authorities”; Grk “the Jews.” Here the phrase refers to the Jewish leaders. See the notes on the phrases “Jewish people” in v. 19 and “Jewish leaders” in v. 24.

5 tn Grk “Jesus answered them.”

6 tn Or “good works.”

7 tn Or “the Jewish authorities”; Grk “the Jews.” Here again the phrase refers to the Jewish leaders. See the notes on the phrase “Jewish people” in v. 19 and “Jewish leaders” in vv. 24, 31.

8 tn Grk “answered him.”

9 tn Or “good work.”

10 sn This is the first time the official charge of blasphemy is voiced openly in the Fourth Gospel (although it was implicit in John 8:59).

11 tn Grk “and because.”

12 tn Grk “you, a man, make yourself to be God.”
