Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 14:2

_ _ And said unto his servants — his counselors or court-ministers.

_ _ This is John the Baptist: he is risen from the dead, etc. — The murdered prophet haunted his guilty breast like a specter and seemed to him alive again and clothed with unearthly powers in the person of Jesus.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 14:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 14:2

He is risen from the dead — Herod was a Sadducee: and the Sadducees denied the resurrection of the dead. But Sadduceeism staggers when conscience awakes.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 14:2

And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty (a) works do shew forth themselves in him.

(a) By works he means that force and power by which works are performed, and not the works which are often seen before.
