Matthew 12:23-24

Context
12:23 All the crowds were amazed and said, “Could this one be the Son of David?” 12:24 But when the Pharisees 1  heard this they said, “He does not cast out demons except by the power of Beelzebul, 2  the ruler 3  of demons!”

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

2 tn Grk “except by Beelzebul.”

sn Beelzebul is another name for Satan. So some people recognized Jesus’ work as supernatural, but called it diabolical.

3 tn Or “prince.”
