Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 16:14

_ _ And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist — risen from the dead. So that Herod Antipas was not singular in his surmise (Matthew 14:1, Matthew 14:2).

_ _ some, Elias — (Compare Mark 6:15).

_ _ and others, Jeremias — Was this theory suggested by a supposed resemblance between the “Man of Sorrows” and “the weeping prophet?”

_ _ or one of the prophets — or, as Luke (Luke 9:8) expresses it, “that one of the old prophets is risen again.” In another report of the popular opinions which Mark (Mark 6:15) gives us, it is thus expressed, “That it is a prophet [or], as one of the prophets”: in other words, That He was a prophetical person, resembling those of old.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 16:13-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
