    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 22:41

    While the Pharisees were gathered together - Jesus asks a question in his turn, utterly to confound them, and to show the people that the source of all the captious questions of his opponents was their ignorance of the prophecies relative to the Messiah.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 22:41

    Jesus proposes a question concerning the Messiah - See also Mark 12:35-37; Luke 20:41-44.

    Matthew 22:41

    While the Pharisees ... - Jesus, having confounded the great sects of the Jews, proceeds, in his turn, to propose to them a question for their solution.

    This was done, not for the purpose of vain parade and triumph, but:

    1. to show them how ignorant they were of their prophecies.

    2. to humble them in view of their ignorance.

    3. to bring to their attention the true doctrine respecting the Messiah - his being possessed of a character superior to that of David, the most mighty king of Israel - being his Lord, at the same time that he was his descendant.
