John 10:21 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Others said," (alloi elegon) "Others (of them) asserted," or replied, disagreeing with their ridiculing Jewish brethren.

2) "These are not the words of him that hath a devil," (tauta ta hermata ouk estin diamonizomenou) "These (kind of) words are not of one who is raving or demon possessed." You all are not sound enough in mind and judgement yourselves to make such a charge stick before a judge, they responded. Demonized men neither speak nor do the kind of things He says and does so orderly, with emotional stability and reason, much as related Joh 7:46; Luk 4:22.

3) ''Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?" (me diamonion dunatai tuphlon ophthalmous anoiksai) "A demon is not able to open the eyes of blind men, is he?" It was dog-eat-dog, of Jew-Vs-Jew, when both groups opposing Jesus against one another, while rejecting Jesus, were in the wrong, Joh 5:20; Could a demon open blind eyes? One party quizzed, and would he, if he could, as Jesus had done to the man born blind? This was the hard truth they could not reasonably explain, Joh 9:6-7.
