    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:3

    Y le dijeron sus hermanos: Psate de aquí, y vete a Judea, para que tus discípulos tambin vean las obras que haces.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 7:3

    Verse 3. His brethren-said] It is generally supposed that these were the
    children of the sisters of his mother Mary; but some of the ancients have stated that Joseph had several children by a former wife. See the account of the evangelist prefixed to this Gospel. No solid proof can be alleged against this; nor can we pretend to say that these were not the children of Joseph and Mary. Our blessed Lord, it is true, was her first born, while she was yet a virgin; but no man can prove that he was her last. It is an article of faith, in the Popish Church, to believe in the perpetual virginity of Mary; and in this respect, without any reason, several Protestants seem to be Papists. However this may be, it is certain that the Hebrews gave the name of brethren to all the relatives of a particular family. See Gen. xxxi. 32, 46.

    That thy disciples also may see] That is, the disciples which he had made two years and six months before, at the Passover: chap. ii. 23.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. His brethren therefore said unto him , etc.] That is, the brethren of Jesus, as the Syriac and Persic versions express it; who were not James and Joses, and Simon and Judas, the sons of Alphaeus, the brother of Joseph, the husband of Mary, so called, ( Matthew 13:55), for some of these were of the number of the twelve; and all of them believers in Christ; whereas these his brethren were not. The Jew therefore is mistaken, who supposed the above persons are here intended; and objects this their unbelief to Jesus, as if they knew him too well to give him any credit; whereas they did believe in him, and abode by him to the last; and some of them, if not all, suffered death for his sake. They therefore are to be understood of some distant relations of Mary or Joseph, that dwelt at Nazareth, or Capernaum, or in some of those parts; and the feast of tabernacles being at hand, they put him upon going up to it, being willing to be rid of him: saying, depart hence : which is the language of carnal men, who desire not the company of Christ, nor the knowledge of his ways; and like the Gergesenes, who preferred their swine to Christ, and desired him to depart out of their coasts: and go into Judea ; among his most inveterate enemies, who sought to take away his life; and which doubtless they knew; which showed a quite different regard to him, from that of his true disciples, ( John 11:7,8), for which they give some plausible reasons: that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest : meaning not his twelve disciples, who were now with him, but the disciples he had made, and baptized in Judea, ( John 4:1,2). Or his disciples in the several parts of the land, who would all be at Jerusalem, at the feast of tabernacles; and so, should he go, would have an opportunity of seeing his miracles, and thereby be the more confirmed in the faith of him, Ver. 4. For there is no man that doeth anything in secret , etc.] For so they reckoned his doing miracles in such a corner of the land, and in so obscure a place as Galilee: and he himself seeketh to be known openly ; suggesting hereby, that Christ was an ambitious person, and sought popular applause, and honour and glory from men, when nothing was more foreign from him; (see John 5:41 8:50). If thou do these things ; for they question whether the miracles he wrought were real; and suspected that they were deceptions of the sight, and delusions; or at least they questioned their being done by him; and rather thought that they were done by diabolical influence, by Beelzebub the prince of devils: but if they were real ones, they advise him, saying, shew thyself to the world ; or do these openly, and in the presence of the great men of the world; the princes of it, the rulers of the people, the chief priests and sanhedrim; and before all the males of Israel; who at this feast would come up from all parts of the land, and are for their multitude called the world: the reason of this their advice was, that if his miracles were real, and he was the person he would be thought to be, the doing of them before such, would gain him great credit and esteem; and if not, he might be detected by such numbers, and by men of such penetration as were among them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-13 - The
    brethren or kinsmen of Jesus were disgusted, when they found ther was no prospect of worldly advantages from him. Ungodly men sometime undertake to counsel those employed in the work of God; but they onl advise what appears likely to promote present advantages. The people differed about his doctrine and miracles, while those who favoured him dared not openly to avow their sentiments. Those who count the preachers of the gospel to be deceivers, speak out, while many wh favour them, fear to get reproach by avowing regard for them.
