“Now while the Pharisees
Were gathered together,
Jesus asked them
Συνηγμένων δὲ τῶν Φαρισαίων ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς
This sparing between Jesus and the Pharisees continued. There is something similar in Mark, chapter 12:35, but Jesus was in the Temple talking to the Scribes. In Luke, chapter 20:41, he was talking to some vague “them.” There is no doubt here because the Pharisees had gathered together (Συνηγμένων δὲ τῶν Φαρισαίων) around him. Thus, he asked them a question (ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς).
