Day 2: John 7:25-52
Stories: Festival Continued
1) When Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from – a statement they will directly contradict almost immediately
2) Jesus tells them that He is from God, but that they do not know Him, for which they tried to arrest Him.
3) Messiah / Prophet debate – Deuteronomy 18:14-22
Paradoxes: They said the Messiah would come from Bethlehem, but assume Jesus is from Galilee. Why doesn’t Jesus ever correct them? Why is Jesus silent on the matter of the place of His birth? John points this out several times and never see Jesus address this.
