Wesley's Notes for Mark 7:33


7:33 He put his fingers into his ears - Perhaps intending to teach us, that we are not to prescribe to him (as they who brought this man attempted to do) but to expect his blessing by whatsoever means he pleases: even though there should be no proportion or resemblance between the means used, and the benefit to be conveyed thereby.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 7:33


Mr 7:33 Put his fingers into his ears. The manner of the Lord in this miracle was peculiar. I understand that he used signs instead of words in order to arouse faith in the deaf man. He touched the organs that had lost their office and then looked to heaven. This would be deeply significant to one who had learned to understand by signs.

  • JP
    Jesus Christ came to save the house of Israel to fulfill the law and prophesy first as the Word of God clearly says, but this greek woman was a gentile and Jesus saw her faith in him and he blessed her by answering her prayer. Jesus Christ is God and cannot make a mistake.
  • Obbie Beal
    1-5 we learn of 'customary practices' of /by church-folks; church-folks elevate such 'customary practices' above the COMMANDMENTS OF Jehovah /GOD; GOD is concern with SALVATION plus verse 20, 21, 22, 23; in 2019 the world has proven to GOD they will have nothing other than 20, 21, 22, 23; now the ball is in GOD's hand /court and the world SHALL see what play /move GOD will make (READY or Not).
