John 7: 45-52

Unbelief of the Jewish Leaders

45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and the Pharisees, who asked them, “Why didn’t you bring him in?”
46 “No one ever spoke the way this man does,” the guards replied.
47 “You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted. 48 “Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.”
50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, 51 “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?”
52 They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”

Don’t believe everything you hear!

ii. “It was not historically true; – for two prophets at least had arisen from Galilee: Jonah of Gathhepher, and the greatest of the prophets, Elijah of Thisbe; and perhaps also Nahum and Hosea. Their contempt for Galilee made them lose sight of historical accuracy.” (Alford)

The part that I like has where the guard’s couldn’t bring themselves to grab JESUS!! What Blessed me was that without the FATHER’S permission it was impossible to bring JESUS!!! They thought they were in control!! The truth is that they had no control what so ever!!! LORD JESUS I Love YOU so much!!! Thank You for Your great mercies!!!
Bless You Ladies!!!❌🔴❌🔴❌🔴
