Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 10:19
- There arose a division again (sxisma palin egeneto).
- As in 7:43 in the crowd (also in 7:12,31), so now among the hostile Jews (Pharisees) some of whom had previously professed belief in him (8:31). The direct reference of palin (again) may be to 9:16 when the Pharisees were divided over the problem of the blind man. Division of opinion about Jesus is a common thing in John's Gospel (6:52,60,66; 7:12,25; 8:22; 9:16; 10:19,24,41; 11:41 12:19,29,42; 16:18).
