John 7:13-15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 Still, no one spoke openly about him because they were afraid of the Jews.

The First Dialogue.[a] 14 When the feast was already half over, Jesus went up into the temple area and began to teach. 15 [b]The Jews were amazed and said, “How does he know scripture without having studied?”

Footnotes:

  1. 7:14–31 Jesus teaches in the temple; debate with the Jews.
  2. 7:15 Without having studied: literally, “How does he know letters without having learned?” Children were taught to read and write by means of the scriptures. But here more than Jesus’ literacy is being discussed; the people are wondering how he can teach like a rabbi. Rabbis were trained by other rabbis and traditionally quoted their teachers.
