It was time for Passover and people were talking about Jesus, whether He would go to Jerusalem for the feast:
And the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. Then they sought Jesus, and spoke among themselves as they stood in the temple, “What do you think—that He will not come to the feast?”
– John 11.55–56
The Passover was, and still is, the greatest of the feasts of the Jews. Naturally, since Jesus was becoming well-known, but also hated by the leaders, people were talking about Him, who was the true Passover because the Passover symbolized what Jesus was about to do.
