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
    MARQ: I agree with you about wine; but comparing poisons to wine isn't right. God made everything very good in the beginning; but men because of their hatred and hostility, wicked minds and proud hearts, love of evil and sin; have caused the whole creation to be out of course. Wine always was for a good thing, but men make it evil by drunkenness. That poison you mentioned is not to be touched!

    1 TIMOTHY 5:23 DRINK NO LONGER WATER BUT USE A LITTLE WINE FOR THY STOMACHS SAKE AND THINE OFTEN INFIRMITIES****PROVERBS 23:21 FOR THE DRUNKARD AND THE GLUTTON SHALL COME TO POVERTY AND DROWSINESS SHALL CLOTHE A MAN WITH RAGS ****EPHESIANS 5:18 AND BE NOT DRUNK WITH WINE --- WHEREIN IS EXCESS --- BUT BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT
  • MARQ
    Elizabeth, PLEASE show KJV-Only scripture that says, "Jesus never drank wine!" I'm 52 a pastors son who was taught it was a sin. I have never drank any form of alcoholic beverage or smoked anything (anti-drugs) Yet I can't preach it's a sin to drink, only a "Sin to be DRUNK" 2 different things. The very 1st miracle was water to WINE, would Jesus (you) make cocaine for others knowing it was a sin?
  • A disciple
    Elizabeth; You are mistaken about Jesus having never drunk wine. His first miracle at the commencement of His ministry was to turn water into wine. He said of Himself that He came eating and drinking, and was a friend of Publicans and sinners. If you make a promise to God about not drinking, we respect your will and try to support you. But you cannot say what is the business of another man's faith
  • Elizabeth Harmon
    I believe people need to read the KJV and not these other translations. The Bible states numerous times that alcohol is bad. Jesus DID NOT DRINK WINE PERIOD!! HE WAS FREE FROM ALL SINS!! Some people need to read the truth and stop sugar coating!! The Bible states to NEITHER ADD TO OR TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD!! So stop making EXCUSES to get drunk.
  • A disciple
    The "law" which the Pharisees follow is not God's law, but the law of their own proud and unbelieving hearts. Proud, because they will NOT give a thing to humble themselves before other men; and unbelieving because if they really did believe ANY of the Scriptures which they read "all the time," then they would recognize and welcome all who were of God; but they don't recognize or welcome Jesus.
