People's Bible Notes for Luke 7:15


Lu 7:15 Sat up. As the daughter of Jairus, and Lazarus, so the widow's son at once obeyed, arose and spoke. The Lord finished his work by taking him by the hand and presenting him to his mother. Language is too feeble to express her joy.

Discussion for Luke 7

  • A disciple
    (continuing) Jesus used the same method in trying to pull some thinking and growth out of His own disciples; asking them questions, not because He didn't know what He was going to do, or even required a suggestion; but to prove them! John had been announcing and teaching and preaching the coming of the Lamb of God, and by the Spirit knew Him when he saw Him. But his disciples were not getting it!
  • A disciple
    It is sad how easily SO MANY are led away from sound understanding of Scripture, simply because they hear some Pastor saying it! In the actual Sacred Text, Jesus in no way indicates that John had somehow slipped into doubting; but rather praises him as greater AND MORE THAN A PROPHET! John was still faithfully trying to direct his disciples to Jesus, knowing that his time was coming to a close!
  • Servant of God
    A beautiful chapter of fiery condemnation of the hard hearted and the tears of the supplicant, one distrusted the miricles which eyes have seen, the other weeps for joy that God has visited his people Israel, God's chosen, to whom Jesus was sent. Even John wondered if Jesus was messiah while in prison. Jesus continued his mission of healing and preaching in demonstration. Mary served her master
  • A disciple
    How does it always seem to go together, that they who seek to be rich and secure after the wisdom and prudence of the world; that the same one who has attained a degree of this wealth and position "better than others" are so hard-hearted and shameful dull of understanding about the Supreme Greatness of Christ, and the tremendous work of God's power to reform a sinner into a holy and loving Saint!

    The woman gives her best to the Lord Jesus Christ,...
  • A disciple
    If one has a stronger nature and resolves not to let himself fall into the popular sins of the day; he is blessed, true! But still he is debtor to God! Both the small and the great all must give account of the things done in their body. Now while the Pharisee wasn't a sinner like the woman was, he was nonetheless in God's view; and he should have known by his very religious occupation HOW to love!
