People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:55


Mt 26:55 Are ye come out as against a thief? Not a thief, but a robber, a brigand. Among all the indignities heaped upon Jesus by his enemies, the only one that he complains of is that he should be bound like a robber.

    I want to know with biblical proof where and which time did Simon the leper got his healing? Please
  • Gethesemane and Calvary are intertwined. As Jesus came to us to do the will of God as the second Adam, his humanity was weak though His Spirit was ready to take the impending cup to save all human beings. He knows very well that the wage of sin is death and eternal separation from Heavenly Father. He was praying earnestly honouring the will of His Father to accomplish His will either by approving this cup to pass away if there is another option or to do His will as He is ready to take it. This shows his complete faith and dependence on His Father during poignant agony. His humanity was like ours and he was under severe pain and fear as any one of us can feel. But The Last Adam was obedient to by His free choice as Isaac obeyed His father Abraham.
  • If it says , "with the sword ", could that mean that we will ultimately perish in the second death if we are violent? So what I mean is,swords will rust away, and if we are to perish "with " the sword, will we rot away in hell? There is a big difference between by and with lol. I am confused! Someone please help, do we know what the original word was? Thanks in advance!
