Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 21:26

_ _ But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people — rather, “the multitude.” In Luke (Luke 20:6) it is, “all the people will stone us” — “stone us to death.”

_ _ for all hold John as a prophet — Crooked, cringing hypocrites! No wonder Jesus gave you no answer.
