Wesley's Notes for Mark 3:22


3:22 The scribes and Pharisees, #Matt 12:22|; who had come down from Jerusalem - Purposely on the devil's errand. And not without success. For the common people now began to drink in the poison, from these learned, good, honourable men! He hath Beelzebub - at command, is in league with him: And by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils - How easily may a man of learning elude the strongest proof of a work of God! How readily can he account for every incident without ever taking God into the question. #Mt 12:24|; Lu 11:15.
