NET © Notes

sn See the note on Pharisees in 3:7.

sn See the note on Sadducees in 3:7.

tn The object of the participle πειράζοντες (peirazontes) is not given in the Greek text but has been supplied here for clarity.

sn What exactly this sign would have been, given what Jesus was already doing, is not clear. But here is where the fence-sitters reside, refusing to commit to him.
