John 9:28 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Reviled (ἐλοιδόρησαν)

The verb means to reproach or scold in a loud and abusive manner. Calvin, on 1 Corinthians 4:12, "being reviled we bless," remarks: "Λοιδορία is a harsher railing, which not only rebukes a man, but also sharply bites him, and stamps him with open contumely. Hence λοιδορεῖν is to wound a man as with an accursed sting."

His disciple (μαθητὴς ἐκείνου)

Literally, that man's disciple. The pronoun has a contemptuous force which is not given by his.
