You have a demon (Jn 7:20-7:20)

“The crowd answered,

‘You have a demon!

Who is seeking to kill you?’”

ἀπεκρίθη ὁ ὄχλος Δαιμόνιον ἔχεις· τίς σε ζητεῖ ἀποκτεῖναι;

John uniquely indicated that the crowd answered Jesus (ἀπεκρίθη ὁ ὄχλος).  They said that Jesus had a demon (Δαιμόνιον ἔχεις).  They wondered who was trying or seeking to kill Jesus (τίς σε ζητεῖ ἀποκτεῖναι)?  This crowd in the Temple thought that Jesus was foolish or demonic.  Who did he think was trying to kill him?  Was he paranoid?  Jesus sounded like a deranged person who was afraid that everyone was out to get him.  Do you think that people are against you and want to kill you?
