According to this passage found in the Bible, it appears the answer Jesus gave to the Jews shows that he isn't God, the Lord and Savior that Christians believe in. John 7 13: Yet for fear of the Jews no one spoke openly of him. 14: About the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 15: The Jews marveled at it, saying, "How is it that this man has learning, when he has never studied?" 16: So Jesus answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me; 17: if any man's will is to do his will, he shall know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority. 18: He who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood.
