People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:19


Mt 8:19 A certain scribe came, and said . . . I will follow thee. Compare Lu 9:57-62. Though this scribe belonged to a class which, as a body, rejected Christ, he was disposed to be a disciple (see Mt 8:21), but had not counted the cost. See PNT "Mt 2:4".

Discussion for Matthew 8

  • Fran
    Remember Jesus say's that everyone that say's Lord Lord will not enter into the kingdom. They will say Lord we cast devil's and many works in your name but he will say that your work was of iniquity. This may be why it say's the children of the kingdom will be cast into outer darkness. The Jews were his children as well but the first group did not make it to the promise land because of unbelief.
  • George John
    Comment*
    I learnt that God's kingdom is always inherited and attained through hilliness, faithfulness and obedience towards what God requires you or me to do in our daily life.
  • Gamaliel
    To Derek; The kingdom of Heaven is the place (heaven itself) The children of the kingdom are those of us who are on earth (the Kingdom of God). Jesus marveled that this non-Jew had the understanding of how faith works. The children of the kingdom suffer from ignorance and suffer here on earth because they wont use the faith given them to overcome sickness and poverty.
  • DEREK EUVRARD
    I don't understand why it's states that the children of the kingdom will be cast into the outer darkness and gnawed by teeth...

    proves peter was a married man not the first pope like the roman catholic church
    teaches and jesus christ is the rock not peter people are deceived in a false gospel
    peter had a mother in law therefore he was married unlike the harlot church which
    teaches celebacy which is not scriptural that is why the majority of priests are homosexual
    repent or hell awaits this false gospel of rome
  • Janet
    I know God has always been there for me even when the devil has tried to take me out God has blocked him every-time we need to know prayer works just have faith and know he will never leave you
