29因为 他教训 他们 ,正象 有 权柄 的人,不 象 他们的文士 。
29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
29 Verse 29. Having authority] They felt a commanding power and

authority in his word, i.e. his doctrine. His statements were

perspicuous; his exhortations persuasive; his doctrine sound and

rational; and his arguments irresistible. These they never felt

in the trifling teachings of their most celebrated doctors, who

consumed their own time, and that of their disciples and hearers,

with frivolous cases of conscience, ridiculous distinctions, and

puerile splittings of controversial hairs-questions not calculated

to minister grace to the hearers.



Several excellent MSS. and almost all the ancient versions read,

καιοιφαρισαιοι, and the Pharisees. He taught them as one having

authority, like the most eminent and distinguished teacher, and

not as the scribes and Pharisees, who had no part of that unction

which he in its plenitude possessed. Thus ends a sermon the most

strict, pure, holy, profound, and sublime, ever delivered to man;

and yet so amazingly simple is the whole that almost a child may

apprehend it! Lord! write all these thy sayings upon our hearts,

we beseech thee! Amen.
