Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Christ?</span> <span id="en-ESV-26344" class="text John-7-27"><sup class="versenum">27 </sup>But we know where this man comes from, and when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from.”</span> <span id="en-ESV-26345" class="text John-7-28"><sup class="versenum">28 </sup>So Jesus proclaimed, as he taught in the temple, <span class="woj">“You know me, and you know where I come from.
