John 7:47 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then answered them the Pharisees,'' (apekrithesan oun autois hoi Pharisaioi) "Then the Pharisees answered them directly," with sarcasm and irony, the very Pharisees who had sent them to do their dirty, treacherous will, Joh 7:32; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18. The Pharisees were the leaders of the mob band against Jesus.

2) "Are ye also deceived?" (me kai humeis peplanesthe) "Are you all also deceived, deluded, or hoodwinked?" led astray, as we believe all His followers to be? Little did they know how self-deceived they were themselves, Jer 17:9. This same rabid band of self-righteous, proud, arrogant Pharisees had called Jesus “this deceiver," Mat 27:63.
