    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:29

    porque les enseaba como quien tiene autoridad, y no como los escribas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 7:29

    Verse 29. Having
    authority] They felt a commanding power and authority in his word, i.e. his doctrine. His statements were perspicuous; his exhortations persuasive; his doctrine sound and rational; and his arguments irresistible. These they never felt in the trifling teachings of their most celebrated doctors, who consumed their own time, and that of their disciples and hearers, with frivolous cases of conscience, ridiculous distinctions, and puerile splittings of controversial hairs-questions not calculated to minister grace to the hearers.

    Several excellent MSS. and almost all the ancient versions read, kai oi farisaioi, and the Pharisees. He taught them as one having authority, like the most eminent and distinguished teacher, and not as the scribes and Pharisees, who had no part of that unction which he in its plenitude possessed. Thus ends a sermon the most strict, pure, holy, profound, and sublime, ever delivered to man; and yet so amazingly simple is the whole that almost a child may apprehend it! Lord! write all these thy sayings upon our hearts, we beseech thee! Amen.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. For he taught them, as one having authority , etc.] This does not so much respect the subject matter of his ministry, the gravity, weight, and solidity of his doctrine; which, to be sure, was greatly different from that of the Scribes, which chiefly lay in proposing and handling things trivial, and of no moment; such as the rituals of the law, the traditions of the elders, or washing of the hands and cups, etc. nor merely the manner of his delivery, which was with great affection, ardour, and fervency of spirit, with much liberty and utterance of speech, and with wonderful perspicuity and majesty; in which also he differed from the Scribes, who taught in a cold and lifeless manner, without any spirit and power; but this chiefly regards the method he used in preaching, which was by delivering truths of himself in his own name, and by his own authority; often using those words, but I say unto you: he spoke as a lawgiver, as one that had authority from heaven, and not from men; and not as the Scribes , who used to say, when they delivered any thing to the people, our Rabbins, or our wise men say so and so: such as were on the side of Hillell made use of his name; and those who were on the side of Shammai made use of his name; scarce ever would they venture to say anything of themselves, but said, the ancient doctors say thus and thus: almost innumerable instances might be given, out of the Talmud, in which one Rabbi speaks in the name of another; but our Lord spoke boldly, of himself, in his own name, and did not go about to support his doctrine by the testimony of the elders; but spake, as having received power and authority, as man, from his Father, and not as the Scribes. Some copies add, and Pharisees; these generally going together; and so read the Vulgate Latin, the Syriac, the Persic versions, and the Hebrew edition of Matthew by Munster.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-29 -
    Christ here shows that it will not be enough to own him for our Master only in word and tongue. It is necessary to our happiness that we believe in Christ, that we repent of sin, that we live a holy life that we love one another. This is his will, even our sanctification Let us take heed of resting in outward privileges and doings, lest we deceive ourselves, and perish eternally, as multitudes do, with a li in our right hand. Let every one that names the name of Christ, depar from all sin. There are others, whose religion rests in bare hearing and it goes no further; their heads are filled with empty notions These two sorts of hearers are represented as two builders. Thi parable teaches us to hear and do the sayings of the Lord Jesus: some may seem hard to flesh and blood, but they must be done. Christ is lai for a foundation, and every thing besides Christ is sand. Some buil their hopes upon worldly prosperity; others upon an outward professio of religion. Upon these they venture; but they are all sand, too wea to bear such a fabric as our hopes of heaven. There is a storm comin that will try every man's work. When God takes away the soul, where is the hope of the hypocrite? The house fell in the storm, when the builder had most need of it, and expected it would be a shelter to him It fell when it was too late to build another. May the Lord make u wise builders for eternity. Then nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ Jesus. The multitudes were astonished at the wisdom an power of Christ's doctrine. And this sermon, ever so often read over is always new. Every word proves its Author to be Divine. Let us be more and more decided and earnest, making some one or other of thes blessednesses and Christian graces the main subject of our thoughts even for weeks together. Let us not rest in general and confuse desires after them, whereby we grasp at all, but catch nothing __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    29. He taught (hn didaskwn). He was
    teaching. This union of the verb and participle emphasized the idea of duration or habit more than the simple tense.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:29 {And not as their
    scribes} (kai ouc hws hoi grammateis autwn). They had heard many sermons before from the regular rabbis in the synagogues. We have specimens of these discourses preserved in the Mishna and Gemara, the Jewish Talmud when both were completed, the driest, dullest collection of disjounted comments upon every conceivable problem in the history of mankind. The scribes quoted the rabbis before them and were afraid to express an idea without bolstering it up by some predecessor. Jesus spoke with the authority of truth, the reality and freshness of the morning light, and the power of God's Spirit. this sermon which made such a profound impression ended with the tragedy of the fall of the house on the sand like the crash of a giant oak in the forest. There was no smoothing over the outcome.
