Assuming – John 7:42-43

Doesn’t the Scripture say that the Messiah comes from David’s offspring and from the town of Bethlehem, where David once lived?” So a division occurred among the crowd because of Him.

Uninformed assumptions naturally lead to bad conclusions. It appears that none of these have made much effort to find out where Jesus is really from or where He was actually born. They assume from His accent, His manner, His dress and from what others are saying, it appears, that He is ‘from’ Galilee. Assumptions based on appearance and hearsay are always dangerous and are often quite misleading. They have no true understanding of what is actually prophesied and appear to make no attempt to discover the truth.

Jesus is from the lineage of David. He was born in Bethlehem and resided in Galilee. He fulfills the prophecies regarding the Messiah completely even the prophecies these people have never heard or understood. The overwhelming number of Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in Jesus clearly support His claim to divinity. He was who claimed to be. The Holy Scriptures confirm it.
