Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 12:27

_ _ And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children — “your sons,” meaning here the “disciples” or pupils of the Pharisees, who were so termed after the familiar language of the Old Testament in speaking of the sons of the prophets (1 Kings 20:35; 2 Kings 2:3, etc.). Our Lord here seems to admit that such works were wrought by them; in which case the Pharisees stood self-condemned, as expressed in Luke (Luke 11:19), “Therefore shall they be your judges.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 12:22-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 12:27

By whom do your children — That is, disciples, cast them out — It seems, some of them really did this; although the sons of Sceva could not. Therefore shall they be your judge — Ask them, if Satan will cast out Satan: let even them be judges in this matter. And they shall convict you of obstinacy and partiality, who impute that in me to Beelzebub, which in them you impute to God. Beside, how can I rob him of his subjects, till I have conquered him? The kingdom of God is come upon you — Unawares; before you expected: so the word implies.
