Today's Passage: John 7:40-52
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
40. When the crowds heard him say this, some of them declared, "Surely this man is the Prophet we've been expecting'"
41. Others said, "He is the Messiah." Still others said, "But he can't be! Will the Messiah come from Galilee?
42. For the Scriptures clearly state that the Messiah will be born of the royal line of David, in Bethlehem the village where King David was born."
43. So the crowd was divided about him.
44. Some even wanted him arrested, but no one laid a hand on him.
45. When the Temple guards returned without having arrested Jesus, the leading priests and Pharisees demanded, "Why didn't you bring him in?"
46. "We have never heard anyone speak like this!" the guards responded.
47. "Have you been led astray, too?" the Pharisees mocked.
48. "Is there a single one of us rulers or Pharisees who believes in him?
49. This foolish crowd follows him, but they are ignorant of the law. God's curse is on them!"
50. Then Nicodemus, the leader who had met with Jesus earlier, spoke up.
51. "Is it legal to convict a man before he is given a hearing?" he asked.
52. They replied, "Are you from Galilee, too? Search the Scriptures and see for yourself — no prophet ever comes from Galilee!"
