Contextual Overview

19This is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent to him priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you? 20And he confessed and did not deny it; but he declared, I am not the Christ. 21Then they asked him again, What then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you a prophet? And he said, No. 22Then they said to him, Who are you? so that we may give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say concerning yourself? 23He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Straighten the highway of the Lord, as the prophet Isaiah said. 24Those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25And they asked him and said to him, Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor a prophet? 26John answered and said to them, I baptize with water; but among you stands one whom you do not know; 27This is the one who comes after me, and is ahead of me, the one even the strings of whose shoes I am not good enough to untie. 28These things happened in Bethany, at the Jordan crossing, where John was baptizing.

Gill's Notes on the Bible

And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. Who were the straitest sect of religion among the Jews; were very zealous of the traditions of the elders, and professed an expectation of the Messiah; and were famous in the nation for their knowledge and learning, as well as for their devotion and sanctity: and many of them were in the sanhedrim, as appears from John 3:1; see Gill on Matthew 3:7.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Were of the Pharisees - For an account of this sect, see the notes at Matthew 3:7. Why they are particularly mentioned is not certainly known. Many of the “Sadducees” came to his baptism Matthew 3:7, but it seems that they did not join in sending to him to know what was the design of John. This circumstance is one of those incidental and delicate allusions which would occur to no impostor in forging a book, and which show that the writers of the New Testament were honest men and knew what they affirmed. Because:

1.The Pharisees composed a great part of the Sanhedrin, Acts 23:6. It is probable that a deputation from the Sanhedrin would be of that party.

2.The Pharisees were very tenacious of rites and customs, of traditions and ceremonies. They observed many. They believed that they were lawful, Mark 7:3-4. Of course, they believed that those rites might be increased, but they did not suppose that it could be done except by the authority of a prophet or of the Messiah. When, therefore, John came “baptizing” - adding a rite to be observed by his followers - baptizing not only Gentiles, but also Jews - the question was whether he had authority to institute a new rite; whether it was to be received among the ceremonies of religion. In this question the Sadducees felt no interest, for they rejected all such rites at once; but the Pharisees thought it was worth inquiry, and it was a question on which they felt themselves specially called on to act as the guardians of the ceremonies of religion.
