11:20 the finger of God. As in Ex. 8:19, this figure describes the work of God Himself; Matt. 12:28 reads “the Spirit of God.” Both statements bring out the truth that Jesus did not cast out demons by Beelzebul. The power of God was at work in Him. This points to a further truth: in the coming of Jesus the kingdom of God has come. The miracles He performs are evidence for those who have eyes to see that God is at work.
