    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:42

    ¿No dice la Escritura, que de la simiente de David, y de la aldea de Beln, de donde era David, vendr el Cristo?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 7:42

    Verse 42. Where
    David was?] That is, where he was born, 1 Sam. xvi. 1, 4, and where he was before he became king in Israel.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 42. Hath not the Scripture said , etc.] These objectors were those who were accounted the more
    wise and knowing; who were conversant with the Scriptures, and pretended at least to a large knowledge of them: that Christ cometh out of the seed of David ; that he should be a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots; that he should be one out of Davids loins, and of the fruit of his body, referring to ( Isaiah 11:1 <19D211> Psalm 132:11,17), which was very true, and what was commonly known, and expected among the Jews, that the Messiah should be Davids son, as Jesus of Nazareth was, ( Acts 13:23); and out of the town of Bethlehem where David was ? where his parents lived, and he was born; and, according to Jerom f344 , he was buried here.

    The account he gives of this city, where he himself for some time lived, is Bethlehem, the city of David, in the lot of the tribe of Judah, in which our Lord and Saviour was born, is six miles from Aelia, (i.e.

    Jerusalem) to the south, by the way which leads to Hebron, where also is showed the sepulchre of Jesse and David.

    In which may be observed likewise the exact distance of this place from Jerusalem; which, according to Josephus f345 , at least as he is generally understood, was but twenty furlongs: and, according to Justin f346 , thirty five: but that this is the true distance, is clear from the old Jerusalem Itinerary f347 , and which agrees with Jerom about the sepulchre of David; for not far from it is the monument of Ezekiel, Asaph, Job, Jesse, David, and Solomon: however, it is certain that David was born here, and therefore it is called his city; and from hence the Messiah was to come; and here Jesus, the true Messiah, was born, and which the Jews themselves own; (see Gill on Matthew 2:1), (see Gill on Luke 2:4); and in vain it is for them to expect the Messiah from thence, where none of their nation live, nor have lived, for many hundreds of years; being particularly forbid by Adrian, after he had subdued them, living in or near Jerusalem, and also Bethlehem. Tertullian refers to this when he thus argues with them, and very justly, and strongly; if he is not yet born, who, it is said, shall come forth a ruler out of Bethlehem, of the tribe of Judah, he must come (says he) out of the tribe of Judah and from Bethlehem; but we now observe, that no one of the stock of Israel remains in Bethlehem, because it is forbidden that anyone of the Jews should continue on the border of that country how shall the governor be born in Judea, come forth from Bethlehem, as the divine books of the Prophets declare, when there is none of Israel left there at this day, of whose lineage Christ can be born? how shall he come out of Bethlehem, when there is none in Bethlehem of the stock of Israel?

    And the passage they had in view, is ( Micah 5:2). Now these very things they object to Jesus being the Messiah, were what were fulfilled in him, and proved him to be the person; for his supposed father, and real mother Mary, were of the house and lineage of David; and though he was conceived at Nazareth, and brought up there, yet by a remarkable providence, which brought Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem, he was born there, ( Luke 2:4-7).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 40-53 - The malice of Christ's enemies is always against reason, and sometime the staying of it cannot be accounted for. Never any man spake with that wisdom, and power, and grace, that convincing clearness, and tha sweetness, wherewith Christ spake. Alas, that many, who are for a tim restrained, and who speak highly of the word of Jesus, speedily los their convictions, and go on in their sins! People are foolishly swaye by outward motives in matters of eternal moment, are willing even to be damned for fashion's sake. As the wisdom of God often chooses thing which men despise, so the folly of men commonly despises those whom God has chosen. The Lord brings forward his weak and timid disciples, an sometimes uses them to defeat the designs of his enemies __________________________________________________________________
