It would seem most probable, though this is not mentioned, that these persons were Judaizing teachers, professing Christianity, and who supposed that Paul's views were derogatory to the honor of Moses and the Law.
And some also of good will - From pure motives, having no party aims to accomplish, and not intending in any way to give me trouble.
