Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 7:50-53.


John 7:52

_ _ thou of Galilee — in this taunt expressing their scorn of the party. Even a word of caution, or the gentlest proposal to inquire before condemning, was with them equivalent to an espousal of the hated One.

_ _ Search ... out of Galilee ... no prophet — Strange! For had not Jonah (of Gath-hepher) and even Elijah (of Thisbe) arisen out of Galilee? And there it may be more, of whom we have no record. But rage is blind, and deep prejudice distorts all facts. Yet it looks as if they were afraid of losing Nicodemus, when they take the trouble to reason the point at all. It was just because he had “searched,” as they advised him, that he went the length even that he did.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 7:45-53.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 7:52

They answered — By personal reflection; the argument they could not answer, and therefore did not attempt it. Art thou also a Galilean? — One of his party? Out of Galilee ariseth no prophet — They could not but know the contrary. They knew Jonah arose out of Gethhepher; and Nahum from another village in Galilee. Yea, and Thisbe, the town of Elijah, the Tishbite, was in Galilee also. They might likewise have known that Jesus was not born in Galilee, but at Bethlehem, even from the public register there, and from the genealogies of the family of David. They were conscious this poor answer would not bear examination, and so took care to prevent a reply.
