Wesley's Notes for Matthew 5:26


5:26 Till thou hast paid the last farthing - That is, for ever, since thou canst never do this. What has been hitherto said refers to meekness: what follows, to purity of heart.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:26


Mt 5:26 Thou shalt by no means come out from thence. After the debtor was cast into prison he was held until the debt was paid, and if it were not, he remained in prison until he died. Farthing. A small, insignificant copper coin. The warning against lawsuits is clear, but there is a higher idea still. The Lord would warn us to make everything right before it is too late. Before the judgment there is a chance; after it there is nothing but payment.

    Jesus condemned not only the act of adultery but also the thoughts leading up to it in verses 27 and 28.

    Whatever Bind on this earth will be Bound into heaven. God blessed the couple and bind them into one body. It is a sacrament to get married in the church in the house of God. To have a Husband and a wife you are a couple until rapture. If we have Jesus in our life we have everything we need. We need to be born again in spirit not in the flesh if the flesh is weak this is where a devil can use you

    To Devlin if your still reading this, yes it does state in the bible that Jesus is God. Please read, John 1:1 in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. I don't know you, your age, earthly age or Christian age. You made baby Christian for a season one. I won't make an assumption. I was a Christian for many years before I realized "Word" is capitalized! Word is Christ!!! Just replace "Word" with"Christ". I think bc not only was Christ sent here to die for our sins but, also to be the earthly voice of God. If we were to hear the voice of God I believe it would be to much for a human to handle.
