There were a lot of mixed feelings about Jesus in these verses. For instance they believed Christ was not to come from Galilee, but Bethlehem which they did not know that Jesus did come from Bethlehem. I believe for a purpose God shrouded the fact of Him being born in Bethlehem. They were to believe because of His present signs not past. Of course I believe in both past prophetic scriptures as well. Romans 3:20 reveals to us that Christ’s revelation is from both Law and the Prophets.
