The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 64 : August 28, 1902 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 64: August 28, 1902 Where is he? Was the question, that passed from one to another, and many remarks were made concerning Him, some saying, He is a good man, and others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people. Amidst such excite ment, Jesus went up into the temple and preached publicly. His masterful sermon caused many to remark, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? Others marvelled and exclaimed, Is not this the man whom they seek to kill? But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed, that this is the very Christ? Such then was the effect of the appearance and words of the great Nazarene on the people at the feast. The growing inﬂuence of Jesus caused the chief priests to send officers to arrest Him. However, on finding Him, they themselves were compelled to listen, and while He spake, some emphatically declared, Of a truth this is the Prophet. The officers returned without arresting Him. When the chief priests and Pharisees queried, Why have ye not brought him? The only answer they gave was, Never man spake like this man. The authorities asked in chagrin whether they also had been deceived. Resenting this, Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews and a learned man in the laws of his country men, defended Jesus by asking the question, Doth our law judge any man before it hear him, and know what he doeth? His associates asked him scornfully, Art thou also of Galilee? J esus's time had not yet come, the gathering broke up without His being harmed.
