John 7:41

Context
7:41 Others said, “This is the Christ!” 1  But still others said, “No, 2  for the Christ doesn’t come from Galilee, does he? 3 

1 tn Or “the Messiah” (Both Greek “Christ” and Hebrew and Aramaic “Messiah” mean “one who has been anointed”).

sn See the note on Christ in 1:20.

2 tn An initial negative reply (“No”) is suggested by the causal or explanatory γάρ (gar) which begins the clause.

3 tn Questions prefaced with μή (mh) in Greek anticipate a negative answer. This can sometimes be indicated by using a “tag” at the end in English (here the tag is “does he?”).
