The Jews were looking for Messiah to come as a great prophet or a great king. They understood nothing of a "Saviour-Priest," of a "Lamb of God." You would think these priests and Levites who ministered about the temple and the sacrifices would have inquired about THE SACRIFICE; but no, apparently they had no sense of sin; they were Abraham's seed. They would have welcomed him ON THE THRONE, but NOT ON THE ALTAR. "Behold the Lamb of God."
