“But Jesus perceived
κατανοήσας δὲ αὐτῶν τὴν πανουργίαν
Luke said that Jesus perceived, understood, or discerned (κατανοήσας) their cunning craftiness (δὲ αὐτῶν τὴν πανουργίαν). There is something similar to this in Matthew, chapter 22:18, and in Mark, chapter 12:15. Mark said that Jesus was aware of their evil intentions or hypocrisy (ὁ δὲ εἰδὼς αὐτῶν τὴν ὑπόκρισιν). He asked them (εἶπεν αὐτοῖς) why were they testing or tempting him (Τί με πειράζετε)? This idea of testing or tricking Jesus was a common theme in the gospels. Matthew said that Jesus was aware of their evil intentions (γνοὺς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς τὴν πονηρίαν αὐτῶν). He called them hypocrites (ὑποκριταί). He wanted to know why they were testing or tempting him (εἶπεν Τί με πειράζετε). This idea of testing or tricking Jesus was a common theme in the Gospel of Matthew, as in chapter 4:7, at the time of his temptations at the beginning of his ministry, as well as in chapter 16:1, when the Pharisees were asking for signs, and in chapter 19:3, when they were asking about divorce. Jesus referred to them as hypocrites in chapter 6:2-5, when they were praying in public places, and in chapter 6:16, when they were fasting, as well as in chapter 15:7, when they were dishonoring their parents in order to worship in the Temple. Do you consider yourself crafty?
