Found only in the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (see Mt. 10:15; 11:22, 24; Mk. 6:11 [some manuscripts]; Lk. 10:12, 14), the Greek adjective “anektos” meant “more tolerable.”
This adjective is repeatedly associated with the city of Sodom. Jesus said the people of Sodom will fare better at the end of time than those who rejected His miracles and the truth of the gospel.
