The Pharisees were offended (Mt 15:12-15:12)

“Then the disciples

Approached Jesus.

They said to him.

‘Do you know

That the Pharisees

Took offense

When they heard

What you said?’”

 

Τότε προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ Οἶδας ὅτι οἱ Φαρισαῖοι ἀκούσαντες τὸν λόγον ἐσκανδαλίσθησαν;

 

This seems to be a unique saying in Matthew.  The disciples pointed out that Jesus had offended the Pharisees with his sayings.  Then the disciples approached Jesus (Τότε προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ).  They asked him (λέγουσιν αὐτῷ) if he knew that he had offended the Pharisees (ὅτι οἱ Φαρισαῖοι ἐσκανδαλίσθησαν) when they heard what he had said (ἀκούσαντες τὸν λόγον).  Jesus’ disciples seemed concerned or worried that Jesus might have offended the Pharisees.
