Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 7:6-10

_ _ My time is not yet come — that is, for showing Himself to the world.

_ _ your time is always ready — that is “It matters little when we go up, for ye have no great plans in life, and nothing hangs upon your movements. With Me it is otherwise; on every movement of Mine there hangs what ye know not. The world has no quarrel with you, for ye bear no testimony against it, and so draw down upon yourselves none of its wrath; but I am here to lift up My voice against its hypocrisy, and denounce its abominations; therefore it cannot endure Me, and one false step might precipitate its fury on its Victim’s head before the time. Away, therefore, to the feast as soon as it suits you; I follow at the fitting moment, but ‘My time is not yet full come.’”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jesus saith, Your time is always ready — This or any time will suit you.
