References for Matthew 13:57

    • u 13:57 - Or 'were stumbled at him,' but the word 'stumbled' is too weak. The root word in Greek, skandalon, is literally 'the catch of a trap,' that makes it fall when touched. It is generally the occasion, or means, of getting into an evil case, not a stumbling-stone. See chs. 5.29; 18.6.
