John 7:48-53 NCV

48 Have any of the leaders or the Pharisees believed in him? No!
49 But these people, who know nothing about the law, are under God's curse."
50 Nicodemus, who had gone to see Jesus before, was in that group. He said,
51 "Our law does not judge a man without hearing him and knowing what he has done."
52 They answered, "Are you from Galilee, too? Study the Scriptures, and you will learn that no prophet comes from Galilee."
53 And everyone left and went home.
