Wesley's Notes for Mark 10:14


10:14 Jesus seeing it was much displeased - At their blaming those who were not blame worthy: and endeavouring to hinder the children from receiving a blessing. Of such is the kingdom of God - The members of the kingdom which I am come to set up in the world are such as these, as well as grown persons, of a child - like temper.


Discussion for Mark 10

  • A disciple
    "And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him." Scrutinizing everyone but themselves, debating and contending about things that are NOTHING to be debated, putting the Lord to the test with their incessant contradiction and hostility; men who take this course are without excuse and are nothing hidden from God! The hypocrite belies himself!
  • JERRY WELLS
    THE WORD TELL US WHAT WE SHOULD DO IN LOVING SOMEONE IN OUR LIVES
  • A disciple
    Marriage is a wonderful blessing and kindness from God. How dreadful for a man to be alone in the world, and a woman to have no man to be his companion and help build his house! But no one seems to give us the kind of advice and deep insight we need to build a successful Marriage relationship. It takes love, first and always! And it takes humility and honesty, and not being too proud to learn! :)
  • John
    Thier are more places in the Bible that talks about this and if the partner does thier part in a marriage very seldom will the other leave, but most want to only go have way in a marriage and think about them selves you have to give it 100% and don't think about yourself. What did Jesus do did he think about himself or others???
  • Ieanyi amaobichukwu
    To me i belive the word of God,but these word of God let us to instead u will leave ur wife went out side u better bring her in and married again.can this been committing adultery.
  • A disciple
    Kathleen; The Lord was talking about the ones leaving; NOT the one who was betrayed! "If the unbelieving depart, let them depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases." As for the adulterer or adulteress; when they sin and break the Marriage Bond, and then go get someone else; they then cause that one to commit adultery by being with them. God judges righteous in all things!
