(29) They have Moses and the prophets.--The words are in entire harmony with all the teaching of our Lord. The right use of lower knowledge is the condition of attaining to the higher, and without it signs and wonders avail but little: "He that hath, to him shall be given" (Mark 4:25); "He that willeth to do the will of God," so far as he knows it, "shall know of the doctrine" which Christ came to proclaim, "whether it be of God" (John 7:17). It was because the scribes and their followers were unfaithful in a little, that more was denied them. "Moses and the Prophets" were enough to teach them that a life of self-indulgent luxury was evil in itself, and therefore must bring with it, in the end, shame and condemnation. (Comp. Notes on John 5:45-46.)

Verse 29. - Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. The reply of Abraham was especially addressed to those Jews who were standing round him and even asking for a sign. They had all read and heard again and again the Books of Moses and the records of the prophets; if these guides had failed to show them the right way, a special messenger sent to them would be quite useless.
