Bible Commentary for Luke 11:47

Wesley's Notes for Luke 11:47


11:45 One of the lawyers - That is scribes; expounders of the law.

11:48 Whom they killed, ye build their sepulchres - Just like them pretending great reverence for the ancient prophets, while ye destroy those whom God sends to yourselves. Ye therefore bear witness by this deep hypocrisy that ye are of the very same spirit with them.

11:49 The wisdom of God, agreeably to this, hath said - In many places of Scripture, though not in these very words, I will send them prophets - Chiefly under the Old Testament: and apostles - Under the New. #Mt 23:34|.
