People's Bible Notes for Luke 19:7


Lu 19:7 They all murmured. How often these complaints of Jesus stooping down at the company of sinners are recorded! Now, however, the crowd expected that at Jerusalem his kingdom would be proclaimed, but here he is the guest of the chief agent of the oppressive Roman tribute! Had Christ sought popularity he would never have gone with Zacchaeus.

    Thank U G.Goodman for your truthful comment u are so right God sent his Son Jesus to die for us but we must want to be saved u see Jesus cannot make us be saved because he gave us free will from the beginning before we were born Jesus knew those that would come when he call them to himself.u see no one can come to Jesus unless he draw them then he have to open your spiritual ears.

    Who knows parables? He spoke thus that only the elect understand. The nobleman is Jesus, Moses, the Prophets, ect whom God has sent. The nobleman has received his kingdom and returns to impart. The ten servants are the tribes of Israel who migrated to the four corners. Those who hate the nobleman are slayed and denied eternity. There are profitable servants and unprofitable . his reward is..

    luke 19:27 but those mine enemies which would not that I should reign over them bring hither and slay them before me psalm 119:139 my zeal hath consumed me because mine enemies have forgotten thy words 2 thessalonians 2:8 THEN SHALL THAT WICKED BE REVEALED WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING

    "And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house." The Lord Jesus knows who His friends are no matter what others think of us, and speak evil behind His back. What is it our business to judge another man's servant? We all must come to Jesus to be saved, and will each of us be judged by Jesus.
