People's Bible Notes for Matthew 22:39


Mt 22:39 The second [is] like. The first command sums up what man owes to God; the second, what he owes to his fellow-man. Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. See Le 19:18. One who loves God supremely, will not live in disobedience; one who loves his neighbor as himself, will seek the welfare of those around him.

Discussion for Matthew 22

  • Omotoso Christopher
    Many lessons to learn from this chapter. Those that were bidden but failed to come speaks of Israel that rejected her saviour. Issue of resurrection was clarified as the way of God could not be understood by man. Many lessons.

    If one is invited to the feast but is not clothed in robes if righteousness, that one will not be allowed to enter the celebration. Eternity without the presence of the Lord.
  • Lu2677
    The man in v. 12 is not Satan;The king called him "friend".Satan is not "friend". The man is someone who was not chosen; he did not have a wedding garment; the wedding is Christ and his church. The context of who the man is, is v.12,13, 14. V.14 For many are called, but few are chosen". God may call someone to righteousness, but then not chose them, they will be cast into outer darkness;hell.

    Jesus is the son of the king(God the Father).The marriage is between him and the Church(Eph5:25). The privileged people who refused the invitation to the wedding are the Israelites. The Father therefore invited both good and bad guests (gentiles and pagans) to the table of wisdom(Prov.9) The man who had no wedding garment is the devil, the accuser. He went there purposely to accuse the brothers.
