People's Bible Notes for Luke 8:2


Lu 8:2 And certain women. That these women should attend the footsteps of Christ was opposed to the custom of Palestine. The admixture of the sexes was not common. The rabbis held that the law should not be taught to women. Mary called Magdalene. That is, of Magdala, a village near the Sea of Galilee. This is the first mention of her, and we know nothing more of her preceding history. We know that after this she was one of the most devoted friends of Christ. Seven devils. See PNT "Mt 8:29", on demoniac possession.

    Vs. 17 was recently applied to domestic violence, or marriage tyranny. These seem to be very private issues, and many times people try to hide these problems. However,t his brings comfort that Jehovah God is aware of all things, and will bring justice upon those who are evil to their marriage mates.

    To Lou Charles - another way to view Jesus saying, :Tell no one" is - he knew they would - and His desire was for His people to be witnesses; reverse phsycology.
  • Andy
    Jesus shows His deity in this chapter first He shows His power over the sea, then He shows His power over the spirits, then He shows His power over disease and sickness, then He shows His power over death.

    This illustration shows the importance of listening to what we read in God's Word and making sure that we apply it in our lives.

    Lou Charles, the reason Jesus would tell people that is he attempted to control his fame in order to minimize the effects of the enemies of the gospel or his work of salvation on planet earth. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!

    I love from verse 43 the woman with the issue of blood, and the way she got healed, a lot of us give up,but she did not give up she pressed through the crowd and the result was her healing, thank God..so we ought to press through and never give up for God was able then and certainly he is able now,.....

    Question. Why did Jesus say to tell no one ,I always wonder why, what he dose is something goo
