Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 7:29

_ _ For he taught them as one having authority — The word “one,” which our translators have here inserted, only weakens the statement.

_ _ and not as the scribes — The consciousness of divine authority, as Lawgiver, Expounder and Judge, so beamed through His teaching, that the scribes’ teaching could not but appear driveling in such a light.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 7:21-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 7:29

He taught them — The multitudes, as one having authority — With a dignity and majesty peculiar to himself as the great Lawgiver, and with the demonstration and power of the Spirit: and not as the scribes — Who only expounded the law of another; and that in a lifeless, ineffectual manner.
