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.

    As we observe the things going on in this world we are horrified as each incident surrounds us and we just have to think that we need to be waiting and watching for the imminent return of Christ. after while He will tell us to "go on and take our rest", for there won't be any need to watch. While we are trying to stop the madness, I can only imagine Christ as He must see this bitter cup.
  • Joshua
    Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
  • Norm
    There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

    when I'm in the flesh I'm on a dead end road with no way out. I'm stuck and lost with no help, until I repent and call on Jesus to set me free from a life of sexual immorality. I need the Holy Spirit's power and help daily because my flesh is weak. I have learn not to trust myself and no one else but the Holy Spirit. We must constantly watch and pray. fight the good fight of faith.
