People's Bible Notes for John 7:41


Joh 7:41 Others said, This is the Christ. Others asserted that he was the Christ. The opponents denied this, and based their opposition, not upon his character, or his teaching, but upon the fact that he came from Galilee. They did not know that he was born at Bethlehem, according to the prophecies (Mic 5:2).

Discussion for John 7

  • Truth Seeker
    This is just another example of why it matters, because Jesus said believe on him as the scriptures have said! And if people were really Christians they would stop rejecting truth! and stop teaching a lie, the people are waking up and your 400 years of lying about Jesus is being revealed!
  • Tracy
    I'm amazed how the Jews knew there never was a man that spoke like Jesus. That reminded me when the children of Isreal was in the wilderness and God spoke to them. They told Moses to speak with God then tell them what He said. They were afraid just as they were when Jesus spoke. The same thing is happening. I want the Holy Spirit to speak to me. I know the spirit of God will tell me no wrong.
  • Karl
    responds to Martha; good question, it is confusing isn't it? My interpretation would be that the LORD being made man, would withhold the blessing and gift of his Holy spirit, until his time as Jesus had been fulfilled and "glorified" in the hearts of those who embraced him. Glorified then referring to man's full realization of his(Jesus) true nature/sprit, how's that sound to you?
  • Martha
