“He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:12 He went into a far country to receive a kingdom - Christ went to heaven, to receive his sovereign power as wan, even all authority in heaven and earth. #Mt 25:14|; Mr 13:34.
Lu 19:12 A certain nobleman went into a far country. While this parable is much like that of the Talents (Mt 25:14-30 Mr 13:34-36), it is a different one in many particulars; spoken elsewhere, for a different purpose. To receive for himself a kingdom. As Christ would leave the earth and ascend to heaven before he would receive his kingdom.
