John 9:22; John 12:42; John 16:2 (New American Standard)
His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews ; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed Him to be Christ, he was to be put out of the synagogue.
Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue ;
"They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God.
