Bible: John 7:45-53

Lack of Belief

7:45 Then the officers 1  returned 2  to the chief priests and Pharisees, 3  who said to them, “Why didn’t you bring him back with you? 4  7:46 The officers replied, “No one ever spoke like this man! 7:47 Then the Pharisees answered, 5 You haven’t been deceived too, have you? 6  7:48 None of the rulers 7  or the Pharisees have believed in him, have they? 8  7:49 But this rabble 9  who do not know the law are accursed!

7:50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus 10  before and who was one of the rulers, 11  said, 12  7:51 Our law doesn’t condemn 13  a man unless it first hears from him and learns 14  what he is doing, does it? 15  7:52 They replied, 16 You aren’t from Galilee too, are you? 17  Investigate carefully and you will see that no prophet 18  comes from Galilee!
