Wesley's Notes for Luke 22:16

22:16 For I will not eat thereof any more - That is, it will be the last I shall eat with you before I die. The kingdom of God did not properly commence till his resurrection. Then was fulfilled what was typified by the passover.

Discussion for Luke 22

  • Tim Dean
    In order to clearly understand the purpose of the sword, we must first rightly divide the meaning and context of "turn the other cheek. God NEVER intended for us to be door mats or yard dogs to be kicked and slapped for someone else's entertainment. Rather, we are taught by God's Word that we are the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ. We are supposed to walk with power and authority.
  • I fully agree with both Mark and Kevin. Else why did Jesus rebuke Peter for his use of the sword? Still, I can also understand why Peter thought it was the right thing to do at the time. Paul helps US when he writes, The weapons of OUR warfare are not carnal...
  • Self Defense obviously?
  • We that are seeking the Lord with our whole heart and are trying to abide in him should always in his will.We know what his will is for us it's His word!We don't have to ask what to do or what we have.Fasting so we can hear the Lord when we get stuck and don't know what exactly he would have us to do but we know that Jesus has provided all that we need to accomplish what he wants us to do!
  • Just as Nehemiah 's men rebuilt the wall with "a tool in one hand and a weapon in the other " I read it to be taken literally as much as figurative. If Jesus considered self defense a sin why would He be so reckless as to flirt with such an analogy? I believe it to mean protection from wild beasts and robbers that filled Judea, which, if they found them unprotected, would not hesitate to take their lives. Whatever the purpose, the swords were not to be offensive weapons to propagate the Gospel.

    Colin. I believe that christ was setting examples for us. He is showing us how we are to live. Christ God can do anything, after all he is God the creator. Jesus Told us to pray the Lords prayer. That is a promise to God that we will live on earth as in heaven.
