    Barnes' Notes on Luke 14:3

    Jesus, answering - To "answer," in the Scriptures, does not always imply, as among us, that anything had been said before. It means often merely to "begin" or to take up a subject, or, as here, to remark on the case that was present.

    Is it lawful ... - He knew that they were watching him. If he healed the man at once, they would accuse him. He, therefore, proposed the question to them, and when it was asked, they could not say that it was not lawful.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 14:3

    14:3 And Jesus answering, spake - Answering the thoughts which he saw rising in their hearts.
