Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:33


10:33-34 Whosoever shall deny me before men - To which ye will be strongly tempted. For Think not that I am come - That is, think not that universal peace will be the immediate consequence of my coming. Just the contrary. Both public and private divisions will follow, wheresoever my Gospel comes with power. Ye - this is not the design, though it be the event of his coming, through the opposition of devils and men. #Luke 12:51|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:33


Mt 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men. The Jews denied him when they rejected him as Messiah. All who refuse to receive him as their Lord deny him still. The disciple who, through the cares of the world, turns away from Christian life, denies him. Him will I also deny. Those who receive him will be received; those who reject him will be rejected; those who confess him will be confessed, and those who deny him, denied. See 2Ti 2:12.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • Mamie Fluker
    This book also tell us we should not love any one more than the Lord.Not father,mother children or anything.If so we are not worthy of him.Jesus you are Number 1 in my life.Thank God for Jesus!!
  • MaryLeen Dorsainvil
    Mathew chpter 10 verse 38 Jesus says we must take up our cross and follow him and he who loves his life will loose it but he who gives up his life will have eternal life. This passage is telling us that our walk with Christ will be a life that of surrender and sacrifice. Loving and serving God means that we should love and serve each other. Serving just like Jesus did when he was here

    Nana Nezi; You asked, " 5-15 is not necessary now that the kingdom of God has come?"
    Matthew 10:5, Jesus commands his apostles not to preach to the Gentiles or the Samaritans. Matthew 10:6 "But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 1:15, 3:2, 10:7, 4:17. It should be apparent that 5-15 is necessary. Jesus is speaking.
  • Nana Nezi
    According to the KJV, verse 5 says that the kingdom of heaven is at hand (near) please explain your interpretation of the following: 5-15 "This is not necessary now that the kingdom God is come."?

    Thank you for your time.
