c. Division Caused by Life's Appearance
40 Some of the crowd therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is truly the aProphet.
41 Others said, This is the aChrist. But some said, Does then the Christ come out of 1bGalilee?
42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes out of the aseed of David and from bBethlehem, the village where David was?
43 So there arose a division among the crowd because of Him.
44 And some of them wanted to seize Him, but no one laid hands on Him.
45 The attendants therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and these said to them, Why did you not bring Him?
46 The attendants answered, aNever has a man spoken as this man has.
47 The Pharisees then answered them, Have you also been deceived?
48 Has any one of the arulers or Pharisees believed into Him?
49 But this crowd which does not know the law is accursed.
50 aNicodemus said to them (he who came to Him before, being one of them),
51 Does our law 1condemn a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he is doing?
52 They answered and said to him, Are you also from Galilee? Search and see that no prophet arises out of aGalilee.
