People's Bible Notes for John 7:48


Joh 7:48 Have any of the rulers . . . believed on him? By rulers are meant the Sanhedrin. In the matter of deciding on the claims of the Messiah they hold that the judgment of the "rulers" must be decisive. They were not probably aware that Nicodemus was really a secret believer, and that another "senator", Joseph, would reveal himself at the proper time.

    V24 proves physical cutting means nothing. Jesus does not cut flesh and does not teach it.

    "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him." The hostile and hateful who oppose and contradict Jesus and any and all who love Jesus; would love it to be fighting and quarreling with us all the time, and wasting our time! But we have to know when its time to let men have their own ways, and leave them alone.

    Thanks for posting Luke 2:21. I repent of saying,"scripture does not tell us if Mary and Joseph circumcised their children. It is important to repent when scripture corrects us when we err. Or God will reprove us and call us a liar. He doesn't take is lightly when we speak untruth. I don't want him to call me a liar, do you want him to call you a liar? A question for all to consider.
