Mark 3:11 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
11. Thou art the Son of God See notes on Mar 1:24-26. Our Lord accepted not devils for preachers. They so mingled falsehood with their truth that he who listens to them for the truth’s sake will be led away by their lies. All the testimony Jesus would have from them was given by their disclosing their infernal presence and disappearing at his command.
