Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 7:40-43.


John 7:42

_ _ scripture said ... of the seed of David, and out of ... Bethlehem, etc. — We accept this spontaneous testimony to our David-descended, Bethlehem-born Savior. Had those who gave it made the inquiry which the case demanded, they would have found that Jesus “came out of Galilee” (John 7:41) and “out of Bethlehem” both, alike in fulfillment of prophecy as in point of fact. (Matthew 2:23; Matthew 4:13-16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:37-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 7:42

From Bethlehem — And how could they forget that Jesus was born there? Had not Herod given them terrible reason to remember it? Micah 5:2.
