NET © Notes

tn The word “this” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context.

tn This is a good example of a second class (contrary to fact) Greek conditional sentence. The Pharisee said, in effect, “If this man were a prophet (but he is not)…”

sn The Pharisees believed in a form of separationism that would have prevented them from any kind of association with such a sinful woman.
