John 7:51
Unbelief of the Jewish Leaders

45Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said to them, Why have you not brought him? 46The officers answered, Never man spoke like this man. 47Then answered them the Pharisees, Are you also deceived? 48Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? 49But this people who knows not the law are cursed. 50Nicodemus said to them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) 51Does our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he does? 52They answered and said to him, Are you also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee rises no prophet. 53And every man went to his own house.
