Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 13:35


13:35 Your house is left to you desolate - Is now irrecoverably consigned to desolation and destruction: And verily I say to you, after a very short space, ye shall not see me till the time come, when taught by your calamities, ye shall be ready and disposed to say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. It does not imply, that they should then see Jesus at all; but only that they would earnestly wish for the Messiah, and in their extremity be ready to entertain any who should assume that character.


Discussion for Luke 13

  • Bro. Clavdivs
    what was displayed here complements Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to Please him: for he that cometh to God MUST believe that he is a REWARDER of THEM that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM . "
  • Kevin stollings for verse 27
    It makes me think a lot . What does it really take to be truly saved. I beleave it all about relationships with God , the bible states that we are to seek him first and we come up short on that. I do beleve that will be the down fall of many of us. Spend more time in the bible
  • Mrs Doyle for verse 8
    Looking for more information based on luke 13 if possible
  • LaMarr
    Excellent chapter on the power of God and what it can do for us.
  • Bozki
    Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand., Repentance is our way to let God works in our Lives, admit that we are sinners, admit that we take God for granted, and Ask Forgiveness and decide to do what God wants us to do.He is Faithful and Just to Forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness....God Bless...
  • Eric
    To Zenneah 's comment...Jesus IS still alive. He has always been and will always be. Perpetual beyond the corruptible bodies that we men and women occupy. Jesus suffered did die on the croos but he was made alive by our Heavenly Father for all time to come. Amen
