No Prophet Arises from Galillee
The guards went back to the chief priests and Pharisees who said to them, 'Why haven't you brought him?'
The guards replied, 'No one has ever spoken like this man.'
'So,' the Pharisees answered, 'you, too, have been led astray? Have any of the authorities come to believe in him? Any of the Pharisees? This rabble knows nothing about the Law -- they are damned.'
One of them, Nicodemus -- the same man who had come to Jesus earlier -- said to them, 'But surely our Law does not allow us to pass judgement on anyone without first giving him a hearing and discovering what he is doing?'
To this they answered, 'Are you a Galilean too? Go into the matter, and see for yourself: prophets do not arise in Galilee.'
-- John 7:45-52 (New Jerusalem)
