THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 22 - Verse 34

Verses 34-40. Jesus converses with a Pharisee respecting the law. See also Mr 12:28-34.

Verse 34. The Pharisees—were gathered together. That is, either to rejoice that their great rivals, the Sadducees, had been so completely silenced, or to lay a new plan for ensnaring him, or perhaps both. They would rejoice that the Sadducees had been confounded, but they would not be the less desirous to involve Jesus in difficulty. They therefore endeavoured, probably, to find the most difficult question in dispute among themselves, and proposed it to him to perplex him.
