John 7:40-52

ESV 40 When they heard these words, some of the people said, "This really is the Prophet." NIV 40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." ESV 41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Is the Christ to come from Galilee? NIV 41 Others said, "He is the Christ." Still others asked, "How can the Christ come from Galilee? ESV 42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the offspring of David, and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David was?" NIV 42 Does not the Scripture say that the Christ will come from David's family and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?" ESV 43 So there was a division among the people over him. NIV 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. ESV 44 Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him. NIV 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him. ESV 45 The officers then came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why did you not bring him?" NIV 45 Finally the temple guards went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why didn't you bring him in?" ESV 46 The officers answered, "No one ever spoke like this man!" NIV 46 "No one ever spoke the way this man does," the guards declared. ESV 47 The Pharisees answered them, "Have you also been deceived? NIV 47 "You mean he has deceived you also?" the Pharisees retorted. ESV 48 Have any of the authorities or the Pharisees believed in him? NIV 48 "Has any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? ESV 49 But this crowd that does not know the law is accursed." NIV 49 No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law--there is a curse on them." ESV 50 Nicodemus, who had gone to him before, and who was one of them, said to them, NIV 50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, ESV 51 "Does our law judge a man without first giving him a hearing and learning what he does?" NIV 51 "Does our law condemn anyone without first hearing him to find out what he is doing?" ESV 52 They replied, "Are you from Galilee too? Search and see that no prophet arises from Galilee." NIV 52 They replied, "Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee."
