Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:33


10:33-34 Whosoever shall deny me before men - To which ye will be strongly tempted. For Think not that I am come - That is, think not that universal peace will be the immediate consequence of my coming. Just the contrary. Both public and private divisions will follow, wheresoever my Gospel comes with power. Ye - this is not the design, though it be the event of his coming, through the opposition of devils and men. #Luke 12:51|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:33


Mt 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men. The Jews denied him when they rejected him as Messiah. All who refuse to receive him as their Lord deny him still. The disciple who, through the cares of the world, turns away from Christian life, denies him. Him will I also deny. Those who receive him will be received; those who reject him will be rejected; those who confess him will be confessed, and those who deny him, denied. See 2Ti 2:12.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • A disciple
    Hi Ann; Did you notice how that chapter 10 very closely resembles chapter 24, as well as what the Lord was telling the Apostles at the Last Supper in John 13-17? I think that tells us, that the Lord does not need to water down the truth just because we're new; but that He speaks the truth straight and direct. As we grow in grace and knowledge, and are able to understand more, He expounds more.
  • Anne
    In this chapter, Jesus prepares his disciples for Ministry to the Jews to teach them about the Kingdom of God.
  • BSP
    Verse 23: Jesus foresaw that many of his followers would be forced from their homes due to persecution. He advised ones to leave when things like that happened.
  • A disciple
    Jesus began to do and to teach, and to heal everyone who had need of healing; and then begins to charge His disciples to continue with the same work. In Matthew 5-7 was a similar thing, when Jesus began to teach about the character and nature of a disciple and now continues with what the disciples' work will be, and what kind life we should expect till He comes; just as He does at the Last Supper.
  • Insight777
    V34, the sword of Jesus is truth. What is truth varies in opinion even among family members. Arguments and strife arise over who is right and who is wrong. Jesus did not come to pander tranquility at the cost of removal of truth to appease people that want to believe lies. The very foundation of righteousness is truth. Truth must prevail, lies must perish by its sword.
  • A disciple
    Disciple; I'm sorry for having a bad reaction; forgive me. I know I'm not the only disciple, and I shouldn't object if anyone else wants to use the same for writing on here. Again, please forgive me; I'm sorry.
