The People Argue About Jesus

40The people heard these things that Jesus said. Some of the people said, "This
man really is the Prophet.* " 41Other people said, "He is the Christ.* " Other people
said, "The Christ will not come from Galilee. 42The Scripture* says that the Christ
will come from the family of David.* And the Scripture says that the Christ will
come from Bethlehem, the town where David lived." 43So the people did not agree
with each other about Jesus. 44Some of the people wanted to arrest Jesus. But no
person tried to do this.

The Jewish Leaders Refuse to Believe

45The temple* police went back to the leading priests and the Pharisees.* The priests
and the Pharisees asked, "Why did you not bring Jesus?" 46The temple police answered,
"The things he says are greater than the words of any man!" 47The Pharisees* answered,
"So Jesus has fooled you too! 48Have any of the leaders believed in Jesus? No! Have
any of us Pharisees believed in him? No! 49But those people [out there] know nothing
about the law.* They are under God's curse!" 50But Nicodemus was there in that group.
Nicodemus was the one that had gone to see Jesus before.* Nicodemus said, 51"Our
law will not let us judge a man without hearing him. We cannot judge him until
we know what he has done." 52The Jewish leaders answered, "Are you from Galilee
too? Study the Scriptures.* You will learn that no prophet* comes from Galilee."
The oldest and best Greek copies of John do not have verses 7:53-8:11] 53All the
Jewish leaders left and went home.
