Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
The Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
Many of them were saying, “He
has a demon and is insane. Why do you listen to Him?”
It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household!
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘ He has a demon!’
But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “This man
casts out demons only by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons.”
His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “ He has lost His senses.”
While Paul was saying this in his defense, Festus *said in a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind!
Your great learning is driving you mad.”
