In his book John recorded lots of other signs Jesus performed as well as unambiguous claims he made about being God. The responses to Jesus were many and varied (has that ever changed throughout history?) and you can see a whole spectrum of responses in chapter 7 (Mary and Joseph had other children after Jesus – look at the response of his brothers…).
