John 7:40-44

Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Division among the People

40 When they heard these words, some of the people said, “This is really the prophet.” 41 Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Is the Christ to come from Galilee? 42 Has not the scripture said that the Christ is descended from David, and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David was?” 43 So there was a division among the people over him. 44 Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him.

John 7:40-44

King James Version (KJV)

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

43 So there was a division among the people because of him.

44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.

These are my thoughts please share yours.

40 Jesus was the Prophet, God told Moses about but, He is much more than just a Prophet.

41 Christ is the Messiah the true king but, Jesus is more than a King.

42 Christ to come from David's home which, Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Christ was be from the line of the Kings of Judah therefore of David whcih, Jesus was by birthright from Joesph. The Messiah was not to be born from certain kings of judah which, thru being born from God Jesus was. The people accepted that Jesus was rom the Galiee so He must have been born there as well. We often come to our own conculsions about people and we are often wrong when we do this. The people knew what the word said but they did not know the truth about Jesus.

43 Jesus divides people as He should. We as believers should be divided from this world of sin thru Him.

44 Jesus often times gets people upset. Even today people do not want to hear about Jesus and His name can cause a lot of upset people. It was not Jesus' time yet so they did not get Him. We should stand by the word and Jesus even though people may get upset, it is better people get upset with us than for God to be upset with us. It is better for a person to get upset with us and one day accept the truth than, for them to never hear it and go to hell for lack of hearing the truth.
