Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 22:19


22:19 And he took bread - Namely, some time after, when supper was ended, wherein they had eaten the paschal lamb. This is my body - As he had just now celebrated the paschal supper, which was called the passover, so in like figurative language, he calls this bread his body. And this circumstance of itself was sufficient to prevent any mistake, as if this bread was his real body, any more than the paschal lamb was really the passover.

    vs. 54- Following afar off is the major and first sign of backsliding. Those who had the culture of walking behind and not been willing to be known, engaged or effective in the things of the Lord are often prey to the roaring lion who is seeking whom to devour.

    V 36,37, very interesting. Jesus is saying write his gospel down because he is leaving earth and wants future generations to know his Word. Before this point, Apostles were preaching by word of mouth, perhaps because many people could not read. Swords are symbolic, swords of truth 2 witnessed by each other. These swords cut down lies. Jesus, was considered by liars to be transgressing their law.

    To Felicia - Thank-you, Felicia, for the scriptures; actually my interest was from vs. 10 - 16.
  • Dexter Burton
    This same chapter also says that Jesus removed his clothes or outer garment;why was that necessary.(#2)After washing their feet,he dried them with the towel he wrapped around his waist..Which would leave one to believe he was Naked..Again I ask;Why was this necessary.
