The Jewish leaders were looking for a “king” to come and throw out the Romans and sit on the throne of David. The people believed what they were told by the leaders. When Jesus came, He looked like one of the common people and nothing like a king. The proof that He was the Christ was by the miracles He did before them all.
The leaders could not deny the miracles and all the people counted Him as a prophet. JOHN chapter three gives Jesus’ answer to one of the leaders about the true way to Heaven. The leader couldn’t understand what Jesus was talking about. Jesus explained that one “must” be born again to enter heaven. This explanation has become very popular with all Christians and many children memorize the 16th verse.
