    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Although [Jesus] had performed so many signs before them, they[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]were not putting faith in him, so that the word of Isaiah the prophet was fulfilled.[/FONT] —[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]John 12:37, 38.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    Yes, despite all the good done by the Messiah, many people
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] would not believe in him. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Isa. 53:1) [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    Also, few put faith in the
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] good news about Jesus, the Messiah,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] during the ministry of the[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]apostle Paul.[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] (Rom. 10:16, 17) [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]The Scriptures foretold that the[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Messiah would be hated without[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]cause. (Ps. 69:4) The apostle John quotes Jesus as saying:[/FONT]“[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]They have both seen and hated[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]me as well as my Father. But it is that the word written in their Law may be fulfilled, ‘They hated[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]me without cause.’ â€￾ (John 15: 24, 25)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] The Gospel accounts prove[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] that Jesus was hated, especially[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]by the Jewish religious leaders. Moreover, Christ said: [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]“The world has no reason to hate you, but it[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]hates me, because I bear witness concerning it that its works are wicked.â€￾—John 7:7. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    Reminds me of the occasion where Jesus was arrested in the garden of Gethsemane by the Roman soldiers. Peter drew his sword and struck off the right ear of the slave Malchus. Jesus performed a miracle and restored the slave's ear right there before everyone present. It didn't seem to make any impact on the soldiers.
