In John 7, Jesus’ brothers urge him to go to the feast in Judaea. He declines, stating he will not go. His brothers set off without him. But then Jesus *does* go. Secretly. Halfway through the feast, he makes himself quite public by teaching in the temple.
What’s up with this? Why did he lie to his brothers? He’s Jesus, so he must have known he was going to attend the feast, and that what he was saying to his brothers wasn’t true. And why did he keep a low profile there, around everyone, if he was just going to end up teaching in the temple anyway?
