The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLuke 7:19
And John calling unto him two of his disciples…
were a sufficient number to be sent on an errand, to ask a question,
and report the answer, or bear witness to any fact they should see,
or hear done.
Sent them unto Jesus, saying, art thou he that should come, or look we
not that he doubted that Jesus was the Messiah; nor was
it for his own satisfaction so much that he sent these disciples of his
with this question, but for theirs; and to remove all doubt and
hesitation from them about Christ.
