The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”
The Jerusalem Jews are thoroughly confused. I have seen various comments recently about what Jesus would do if he were here now. "Jesus was a socialist," says one. "Jesus was too intelligent to believe in God," says Dawkins.
It is clear that these people have never read the Bible, which is our only source of what Jesus actually said on earth. From Scripture it is clear that Jesus spoke in metaphor and that his subject was the Kingdom of Heaven.
