Bible Commentary for Matthew 21:26

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 21:26


21:24 I will ask you one thing - Who have asked me many: The baptism, that is, the whole ministry of John, was it from heaven or from men? - By what authority did he act and teach? Did man or God give him that authority? Was it not God? But if so, the consequence was clear. For John testified that Jesus was the Christ.

21:25 Why did ye not believe him - Testifying this.

21:27 Neither tell I you - Not again, in express terms: he had often told them before, and they would not believe him.
