Matthew 22:41-42

Context
The Messiah: David’s Son and Lord

22:41 While 1  the Pharisees 2  were assembled, Jesus asked them a question: 3  22:42 “What do you think about the Christ? 4  Whose son is he?” They said, “The son of David.” 5 

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 sn See the note on Pharisees in 3:7.

3 tn Grk “asked them a question, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is somewhat redundant here in contemporary English and has not been translated.

4 tn Or “Messiah”; both “Christ” (Greek) and “Messiah” (Hebrew and Aramaic) mean “one who has been anointed.”

sn See the note on Christ in 1:16.

5 sn It was a common belief in Judaism that Messiah would be the son of David in that he would come from the lineage of David. On this point the Pharisees agreed and were correct. But their understanding was nonetheless incomplete, for Messiah is also David’s Lord. With this statement Jesus was affirming that, as the Messiah, he is both God and man.
