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
    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!
  • Dexter Matuguinas
    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!
  • A disciple
    What kind of status or position of "importance" in the Church or Community would exempt a man from "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself?" or negates his own unfitness for the Presence of God? Jesus Christ came in the flesh to purchase us again to God by His blood: THAT'S OUR FITNESS FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD! Money in the Bank and a bigger house in a nice area does not make you better than your neighbor!
  • A disciple
    "And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, See this woman? I entered into your house, you gave me no water for my feet: but she has washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head." Some really believe that their sins don't accrue much debt with the LORD and while showing outward gestures like inviting Jesus to eat at their house they're too busy finding fault to love.
  • A disciple
    "And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both." "Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?" God commands all men everywhere to repent and believe the Glad Tidings of Christ. Our salvation depends upon our being reconciled, AND a character and conduct in holiness and truth and righteousness.
