People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:15


Mt 10:15 More tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah, etc. The cities of the Jordan valley destroyed for their sins in the time of Abraham (Ge 19:1-28). These cities did not have the opportunity, and hence, not the responsibility, of those to which Christ or his apostles preached.

Discussion for Matthew 10

    Matt. 10:34 - " ... not ... peace, but a sword." I, too, thought of a literal sword, but the Lord showed me Eph. 6:17 - " ..... the sword ..... which is the word of God." And Lk. 12:51 corroborates Matt. - " .... but rather division." The Bible does cause division - between families, friends and churches.

    Judas Iscariot; can you see how Jesus loved him? He KNEW he would betray Him (even before Judas was born) yet He gave him every chance to see the light. And - after Judas betrayed Him - he maybe did see the light, but either couldn't believe he could be forgiven or God let him go. I personally believe he could have repented. We need to be very careful what we do and say.
