Wesley's Notes for Matthew 4:11

4:11 Angels came and waited upon him - Both to supply him with food, and to congratulate his victory.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 4:11

Mt 4:11 Then the devil leaveth him. Luke adds, "for a season" (Lu 4:13). When the devil is resisted he always flees. Angels came and ministered to him. I suppose this ministry was to supply him with food, but they also would afford spiritual sympathy.

    Oh what a Fellowship spending time with JESUS!!!
  • Evangelist Boda Lawson
    - An all powerful God manifested in the flesh spared with a demi god of this world. Satan used his best set of tricks, the ones he uses on us as well, to try to get Jesus to give in even if just in a tiny way. God cannot be successfully tempted, bargained with nor bribed. Jesus used the Word of God to refute Satan. Nothing in the word of God allows any of Lucifer's devices.
  • John
    After Jesus came down off the mountain, he began to preach, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (v.17) And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues,
    This is the VERY place Paul was sent to spread the message. ( Acts 9:15) And Paul headed straight for the nearest synagogue ( Acts 9:20)...........The Syrian people are the people Jesus was sent to ( John 1:11)
  • Servant of God
    Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. This is slso what Jonh the Bsptist spoke to begin his ministry. Why not? They grew up together being only 6 months difference in age. Was John the first to baptise? It was never spoken of in the Torah. What did John baptise his followers into? Repentance. To repent is to embsrk on a different path, having seen the error of your way.
  • Juanita harris
    It was very beautifully spoken

    Verse 17: Jesus preached to people and encouraged them to repent or turn around from their bad course.
