THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 22 - Verse 35

Verse 35. A Lawyer. This does not mean one that practised law, as among us; but one learned or skilled in the law of Moses. Mark calls him "one of the scribes." This means the same thing. The scribes were men of learning; particularly men skilled in the law of Moses. He had heard him reasoning with the Sadducees, and perceived that he answered them well; and he was thought to be better qualified to hold a debate with him, (Mark.)

Tempting him. Trying him. Proposing a question to test his knowledge of the law.

{i} "one of them" Lu 10:25
