Matthew 7:28-29

Context

7:28 When 1  Jesus finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed by his teaching, 7:29 because he taught them like one who had authority, 2  not like their experts in the law. 3 

1 tn Grk “And it happened when.” The introductory phrase καὶ ἐγένετο (kai egeneto, “it happened that”) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 sn Jesus’ teaching impressed the hearers with the directness of its claim; he taught with authority. A study of Jewish rabbinic interpretation shows that it was typical to cite a list of authorities to make one’s point. Apparently Jesus addressed the issues in terms of his own understanding.

3 tn Or “their scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 2:4.
