Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 12:1
- On the sabbath day through the cornfields (toiv sabbasin dia twn sporimwn).
- This paragraph begins exactly like 11:25 "at that season" (en ekeinwi twi kairwi), a general statement with no clear idea of time. So also 14:1. The word kairov means a definite and particular time, but we cannot fix it. The word "cornfields" does not mean our maize or Indian corn, but simply fields of grain (wheat or even barley).
