This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

A devil (δαιμόνιον)

Or more correctly, a demon. See on Mar 1:34. The name was applied to Jesus by the multitude (ὄχλος) and not by those whom He was addressing in Joh 7:19, because of the gloomy suspicions which they thought He entertained, and in entire ignorance of the design of the Jews which Jesus had penetrated. The same term was applied to John the Baptist, the ascetic, as one who withdrew from social intercourse (Mat 11:18).
