No more questions for Jesus (Mt 22:46-22:46)

“No one was able

To give him

An answer.

Nor from that day

Did anyone dare

To ask him

Any more questions.”

 

καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο ἀποκριθῆναι αὐτῷ λόγον, οὐδὲ ἐτόλμησέν τις ἀπ’ ἐκείνης τῆς ἡμέρας ἐπερωτῆσαι αὐτὸν οὐκέτι.

 

This is a unique saying of Matthew, but in Mark, chapter 12:37, he only remarked that the crowd was delighted about his answer.  Of course, the Pharisees nor anyone was able to give him any kind of verbal response (καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο ἀποκριθῆναι αὐτῷ λόγον,).  Matthew remarked that from that day on (ἀπ’ ἐκείνης τῆς ἡμέρας), no one dared to ask him any more questions (οὐδὲ ἐτόλμησέν τις …ἐπερωτῆσαι αὐτὸν οὐκέτι).  Matthew indicated a complete verbal victory for Jesus against the Pharisees.
