Was he functioning in the fear of the Lord of the fear for his position? What information did he want from them? Why didn’t he already know the prophecy? He demanded? Why didn’t he request? Discuss? Rejoice? Why didn’t they fear to tell him the truth? Why was Bethleham called a prince? Why did the prophet say Jesus was a governor? Has the prophecy not come true? Jesus has yet to become the governor of Israel?
