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).

    V. 39 - " ... the Holy Ghost was not yet given BECAUSE ... "; Jesus spirit, poured out on the 120 plus (Acts 2:4) is what IMMEDIATELY open ALL their eyes to see Acts 2:38 - baptism in the NAME ..." (not titles of father, son, and holy ghost). Jesus VERY words were " ... in the NAME of ...". Repentance, baptism, receiving the H.G. - were the keys Jesus gave Peter; VERBAL (spoken) not metal keys.

    The paradox is that Jesus endured the trial of spiritual practice, ie praying all night, fasting 40 days, learning scripture from the phd's of his day, hung out with his cousin, John. We are born empty of knowledge. Obviously, the Jew had a zeal for religion and a 500 year tradition of the law and the prophets. I myself have studied these texts and confess their potency for in them God speaks

    JOHN 7:38 HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME AS THE SCRIPTURE HATH SAID OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER 7:39 BUT THIS SPAKE HE OF THE SPIRIT WHICH THEY THAT BELIEVE ON HIM SHOULD RECEIVE FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS NOT YET GIVEN BECAUSE THAT JESUS WAS NOT YET GLORIFIED JOHN 3:24 FOR HE WHOM --- GOD HATH SENT --- SPEAKETH THE WORDS OF GOD FOR GOD GIVETH NOT THE SPIRIT BY MEASURE UNTO HIM
  • Irene123
    Jn. 7:16; Matt. 10:19 - Jesus was our example. We are to be filled with His spirit, Acts2:38, just as Jesus, except Jesus was God; God lived in the body of Jesus. That's the only way God could shed PERFECT blood for mankind, not blood of animals. God had to provide Himself a sinless body. 'Jesus was in the MIND of God before the incarnation; God knew He was going to do this before creation.
