WILLING TO HEAR?

May 28

In this section of Scripture, we see the Pharisees trying to arrest Jesus because too many people believe in Him and they are losing their popularity and prestige.  The people are still divided and the Pharisees are divided and nobody can lay a hand on Jesus because His time still has not come for Him to die on the cross.  The officers (the Temple Police) cannot believe the things they hear Jesus say and so they do not arrest Him because no man ever spoke like this Man.  They are amazed at Jesus.  The Pharisees get mad because the officers do not arrest Jesus and Nicodemus begins to stand up a little more for Him. The Pharisees get mad with Nicodemus and talk about him like they have been doing about Jesus.  They slander him by asking him if he is from Galilee too. Do we get mad because we don’t like the things Jesus is saying to us or are we listening and willing to be obedient?

John 7:40-43 Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, “Truly this is the Prophet.” 41 Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 42 “Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?” 43 So there was a division among the people because of Him.
