Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:10


10:10 Neither scrip - That is, a wallet, or bag to hold provisions: Nor yet a staff - We read, #Mark 6:8|, Take nothing, save a staff only. He that had one might take it; they that had none, might not provide any. For the workman is worthy of his maintenance - The word includes all that is mentioned in the 9th and 10th verses; #Mt 10:9|,10 all that they were forbidden to provide for themselves, so far as it was needful for them. #Luke 10:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:10


Mt 10:10 Nor scrip. A wallet, or valise. Nor shoes. They were allowed to wear sandals, such as the common people wore (Mr 6:8,9). They should go with simply their ordinary wear. They were required to dress as the people. Nor staves. With the staff each one had, but without an extra supply. A staff was always carried in walking over the rugged mountains of Palestine.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • A disciple
    Monayah; My question was about whether this particular Simon was actually from Cana of Galilee, as the Greek word may suggest; and not mistakenly called a Canaanite. In the Strong's, like you pointed out, kananites means zealous in Greek; or if its simply a transliteration of the Hebrew name, meaning someone from Cana. My point is simply that I doubt if one of the Apostles was a Canaanite.
  • A disciple
    Jesus was sent to the children of Israel because God so loved Israel, and sought to save them. The Light shines upon men's innermost self and exposes the evil, in order for us to bring these things to judgment and be reconciled to God. But not everyone has an interest or need for these good things that Jesus brings; and so what was intended to be the blessing of reconciliation becomes contention.
  • A disciple
    For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Variance is described as, the fact or state of being in disagreement: dissension, dispute. This is what the LORD meant in Leviticus 20:26, saying, that He had severed us from other people to be His.
  • Servant of God
    10/34, I am not come to send peace but a sword. Anybody literate in the bible knows that a sword is the word, which is truth! Now, truth is a rare commodity in these times, and knowing the Word is truth. In Rev, a two edged sword protrudes from Jesus' mouth, for it cuts both ways, destroying lies and establishing the truth, and the truth is from the Holy Spirit. That is the truth spoken inred

    Verse 14: If others do not accept the message of the Kingdom that is their choice. If we have done our part in trying to share it with them, we can have a clean conscience and leave the rest in God's hands.
