Out of Galilee Ariseth No Prophet

How do we get clear on something? We search out the matter. If two people are arguing over something, if they want to be lazy, they would go ask people what they know or think.

If they want to be diligent, they go and search out the matter or as we call it in modern-day, research the matter.

This is what the old-time Pharisees did and were telling others to do. If you read the New Testament, you would soon see a trend of apostles, disciples, and Pharisees. Even people who were being healed were quoting the Old Testament.

If they needed or wanted to prove a point, they would quote scripture.

In one instance, people were in division over Jesus being the Prophet or Messiah from GOD. The Pharisees were dead against that fact, while others were beginning to believe because of the “works” Jesus was doing in the FATHER’s name.

Out of Galilee Ariseth No Prophet

Nicodemus, a Pharisee which was beginning to believe that Jesus was CHRIST, began arguing for his fellow Pharisees. He wanted for them to at least hear Jesus out, the Pharisees began to drop the hammer on him.

They told him plainly in St. John 7:

52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

They asked him, are you from Galilee too? Then they told Nicodemus to search the scriptures. They told the man to go back and do his research and see if the Bible, the scriptures, says anything about a prophet coming out of Galilee!

This was certainly good for debate and confusion, but all that would need to be done for us in this generation is to read Matthew chapter 2, primarily the last two verses (Matthew 2:19-23). There should be an emphasis on verse 22.

In their generation (speaking of Jesus and the Pharisees), they just needed to go speak to Jesus’ parents or family since they knew all of them and have them inform them where they were from.

They would have learned that Jesus was from Bethlehem of Juda as the scripture said. The family only moved to Nazareth of Galilee to avoid Herod and his administration.

  1. Other prophets of God came out of the Galilean area, Jonah, Nahum, Hosea, Elijah and Elisha as well.

    Question: In John 7:52, the Pharisees told Nicodemus, “Search and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee.” Were they correct that no prophet ever came out of Galilee?

    Answer: It’s incredible that these supposed experts did not know that five prophets came out of Galilee— Jonah, Nahum, Hosea, Elijah, and Elisha. Jesus was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, which is in Galilee. He was called Jesus of Nazareth, so the Pharisees assumed that He was born in Galilee.

    The Pharisees were adamant that no prophet ever came out of Galilee because they thought it was proof that Jesus was not a prophet and could not be the Messiah. They knew the Scriptures prophesied the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem (John 7:42, Micah 5:2). So the Pharisees were wrong on two points—that no prophet had come from Galilee and that Jesus could not be the Messiah. For whatever reason, Jesus never stated during His public ministry that He was born in Bethlehem.

      Thankyou for sharing sir. So interesting. Does it quote in the bible that these prophets were from Galilee? Or is it harder to find?
