Jesus asks the Pharisees a question (Mt 22:41-22:41)

“Now while the Pharisees

Were gathered together,

Jesus asked them

This question.”

 

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).
