40Some of the multitude therefore, when they heard these words, said, This is of a truth the prophet. 41Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, What, doth the Christ come out of Galilee? 42Hath not the scripture said that the Christ cometh of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was? 43So there arose a division in the multitude because of him. 44And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.

45The officers therefore came to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why did ye not bring him? 46The officers answered, Never man so spake. 47The Pharisees therefore answered them, Are ye also led astray? 48Hath any of the rulers believed on him, or of the Pharisees? 49But this multitude that knoweth not the law are accursed. 50Nicodemus saith unto them (he that came to him before, being one of them), 51Doth our law judge a man, except it first hear from himself and know what he doeth? 52They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and see that out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. 53And they went every man unto his own house:Other Versions
