How we cite our quotes:(Chapter:Verse)

Quote #7

His disciples said, "Yes, now you are speaking plainly, not in any figure of speech! Now we know that you know all things, and do not need to have anyone question you; by this we believe that you came from God." (NRSV 16:29-30)

His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. (KJV 16:29-30)

Finally! The disciples get it. And how? Jesus drops all the metaphors and just spells it all out for them.
