NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “thus” to indicate the implied result of the plans by the spies.

tn Or “precisely”; Grk “rightly.” Jesus teaches exactly, the straight and narrow.

sn Teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Very few comments are as deceitful as this one; they did not really believe this at all. The question was specifically designed to trap Jesus.
