After the Feast of Tabernacles in the temple, Jesus angers the Pharisees by claiming to be the light of the world

Joh 8:12-20

12 Then again Jesus said to them, I am the light of the world; he who comes with me will not be walking in the dark but will have the light of life.
13 So the Pharisees said to him, The witness you give is about yourself: your witness is not true.
14 Jesus said in answer, Even if I give witness about myself, my witness is true, because I have knowledge of where I came from and where I am going; but you have no knowledge of where I come from or of where I am going.
15 You are judging from what you see; I am judging no man.
16 Even if I am judging, my decision is right, because I am not by myself–with me is the Father who sent me.
17 Even in your law it is said that the witness of two men is true.
18 I give witness about myself and the Father who sent me gives witness about me.
19 Then they said to him, Where is your Father? Jesus said in answer, You have no knowledge of me or of my Father: if you had knowledge of me you would have knowledge of my Father.
20 Jesus said these words in the place where the offerings were stored, while he was teaching in the Temple: but no man took him because his time was still to come.
