11:6 Happy is he who shall not be offended at me - Notwithstanding all these proofs that I am the Messiah.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:6


Mt 11:6 Blessed is [he], etc. This is suggested by John's seeming to have stumbled, not fallen, because Christ had not publicly declared his mission. The Lord does not upbraid, but gives in this way a tender rebuke, implying that he knew what to do with reference to his kingdom.

Discussion for Matthew 11

    You've pretty much got it right. The 'it' refers to the message of John being the spirit of Elijah/Elias. The N.T. was translated from the Greek lang. - as that was the lang. of that day. The Jews knew that lang. - hence in the Greek, Elijah becomes Elias.

    I have been studying Elias in Matt 11:14, After looking up scriptures I believe that Elias may be Elijah, because Mal 4:5 says he will be sent, but then when I read Matt 11: 14 it says "And if you will receive it.... this is Elias. So I don't know because "it" would not be a person, it would be more spiritual. Does anyone know about Elias?

    JESUS CONTINUES HIS TEACHING CONCERNING THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LIFE TO EXPERIENCE NOW,THROUGH HIM. AFTER WE COME TO HIME AND STOP CEASE FROM OUR LABORING, WE YOKE UP WITH JESUS, LETTING BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING IN HIS COMMON WEALTH, WE ENTER TO HIS REST. AS OUR KING IN HIS ECONOMY, HE'S ALWAY'S PROVEN FAITHFUL, WITH NO SHADOW OF TURNING,EVERYTHING WE NEED, HIS HAND PROVIDES, WHAT A GOD.

    The reason that the least in the Kingdom of Heaven and of the Kingdom of God is greater than John the Baptist is because, our Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus is truly Glorified and seated at our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh Elohim's Right Hand now and forever more, Glory Amen and Amen. He is truly the Fifth Cup revealed in our day and time who will be sent to Baptize His chosen elect Zion with the everliving Fire of His Holy Spirit as He is truly our Blessed Lord's Minister of Fire indeed and, get them up and running once again in part, to His everlasting Glory now and forever more, Glory Amen and Amen indeed. SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA ! God Bless you. Shalom yedda dim beloved one .
