Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Matthew 11:5

And the dead are raised up (kai nekroi egeirontai).
Like that of the son of the widow of Nain. Did he raise the dead also on this occasion? "Tell John your story over again and remind him of these prophetic texts, Isaiah 35:5; 61:1" (Bruce). The items were convincing enough and clearer than mere eschatological symbolism. "The poor" in particular have the gospel, a climax.
