Beware this argument!! It's a ruse!

Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived? Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed. Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet. - John 7:47-52 (KJV)

The argument used to discredit Jesus was if any of their group believed in him, NOT whether what he said and did was true.

In fact, at least one of them, Nicodemus, did believe, but had he stood up and proclaimed his belief he probably would have been kicked out of the group (see John 9:22) and the comment would then be made again and the process repeated. If what Nicodemus told Jesus is to be believed ("We know you are teacher from God..."-John 3:2) there were probably others.

Whenever their argument is made there is a ruse going on! You see the same thing among many groups, today, who likewise don't want to deal with truth.
"Do any credible scientist believe this or that?! Yes? Well we will make sure they are kicked out and no longer credible, no longer have tenure, no longer have a job, then we'll ask our question again!"
Stick with the TRUTH, it will keep you safe with God every time, beware anyone or any argument that lets it go.
