"You are demon-possessed," the crowd answered, " who is trying to kill you."
This was a common accusation of the Jews about Jesus who gives a sufficient answer elsewhere. But why invoke demons? Because they were seeing miracles yet unwilling to believe what they signified. They were clinging to their Sabbath-day observance as being greater than the word of God as given by his son. Let us resolve not to be influenced by signs and wonders, but to follow the word of God.
