NET © Notes

tn Grk “And they.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

sn They were amazed. The astonishment shown here is like that in Luke 2:48.

tn Grk “because his word was.”

sn Jesus’ teaching impressed the hearers with the directness of its claim (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.
