A question on some of those non-believers who heard Christ
- Dear Friends in Christ,
In St John Ch 7, vs 40 - 42, it says
40 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?�
Are these "some" who question our Lord's origin, different from those who stated in St Mathew 13 : 55, 56 - about Jesus being the son of Mary and a carpenter, with brothers and sisters and who also took offense at Him.
Kindly give a clarification on who these non-believers are.
