NET © Notes

tn Grk “spoke first to him, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in English and has not been translated.

sn The phrase their sons may mean “their citizens,” but the term “sons” has been retained here in order to preserve the implicit comparison between the Father and his Son, Jesus.
