First aorist active indicative of loidorew, old verb from loidoro (reviler, 1 Corinthians 5:11 ), in N.T. only here, Acts 23:4 ; 1 Corinthians 4:12 ; 1 Peter 2:23 . Thou art his disciple (su maqhth ei ekeinou). Probably a fling in ekeinou (of that fellow). He had called him a prophet ( 1 Peter 9:17 ) and became a joyful follower later ( 1 Peter 9:36-38 ). But we are disciples of Moses (hmei de tou Mwusew esmen maqhtai). This they said with proud scorn of the healed beggar. All orthodox rabbis so claimed.
