New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
40 When they heard these words, some in the crowd said, "This is really the prophet." 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet."
41 Others said, "This is the Messiah." But some asked, "Surely the Messiah does not come from Galilee, does he? 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee?
42 Has not the scripture said that the Messiah is descended from David and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?" 42 Does not the Scripture say that the Christ will come from David's family and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?"
