Luke 7:33

Context

7:33 For John the Baptist has come 1  eating no bread and drinking no wine, 2  and you say, ‘He has a demon!’ 3 

1 tn The perfect tenses in both this verse and the next do more than mere aorists would. They not only summarize, but suggest the characteristics of each ministry were still in existence at the time of speaking.

2 tn Grk “neither eating bread nor drinking wine,” but this is somewhat awkward in contemporary English.

3 sn John the Baptist was too separatist and ascetic for some, and so he was accused of not being directed by God, but by a demon.
