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.

    Matt 11:28 in comparison's to the references of other scriptures such as Paul's defence of his lite affliction's, being ship wretched, beaten with a whip, mocked, abandoned and much more. Casting our cares upon the Lord Jesus is part of our servival tactic that we are constantly to be mindful of. Our burdens are no more at the promise of our Lord!!
  • Michael W. Gephart
    Here is how I interpret Math, 11:11. Jesus taught that we don't go to heaven just as we are.
    We must first be "transformed" into more "perfect" beings. He pointed out that, even though John the Baptist was the most "perfect" man who ever walked the face of the earth, compared
    to the least ("transformed") person in heaven, he is still "lesser".
