Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:14


10:14 Shake off the dust from your feet - The Jews thought the land of Israel so peculiarly holy, that when they came home from any heathen country, they stopped at the borders and shook or wiped off the dust of it from their feet, that the holy land might not be polluted with it. Therefore the action here enjoined was a lively intimation, that those Jews who had rejected the Gospel were holy no longer, but were on a level with heathens and idolaters.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:14


Mt 10:14 Shake off the dust of your feet. This was done when there was a positive rejection of the gospel. It was a symbolical act, signifying that all responsibility for the stubborn household or city had ended. Compare Mr 6:11 Lu 9:5 Ac 13:51. Nor can the gospel be forced upon an unwilling people in any age.

    God is for all His creation with lots of love and compassion. We also can be as the disciples were if we just pick up Jesus cross and follow,trusting and believing. Our hearts and souls have to be connected to Christ. Doing the will and being obedient to His commandments knowing it shall come with some repercussion from some who will not be in agreement. Trust, believe, being obedient, trust God
