Bible Commentary for Matthew 10:35

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:35


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|.

10:36 And the foes of a man - That loves and follows me. #Micah 7:6|.

10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me - He that is not ready to give up all these, when they stand in competition with his duty.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:35


Mt 10:35 I am come to set a man at variance against his father. This was not the Savior's object, but the effect. The conversion of individual members of the family would cause variance. In nearly all quarrels, except those about religion, the members of the same family stand together, but in religious feuds the family circle is often broken and its parts arrayed against each other.

Discussion for Matthew 10:35

  • Gurjit Singh on Matthew 10:35
    People in the family have great affection and attachment for each others.So they do not feel need of attaching themselves with God.So the Christ is saying that he has come to cut the bond of attachment in the family and outer members so that they may start feeling the need of God in and after their life,because family members can do nothing for us after our death.Only God is our protector after death.
  • Susan Rush on Matthew 10:35
    Grace comes from the Greek "Karas " which means thank, as in "what 'thank ' have ye? " That is the only context in which Christ mentioned "grace ". NONE of this liberal get out of jail free card that denominations falsely teach as doctrine. Oh, but Jesus DOES teach on THIS! Jesus dOES say to keep HIS commands. No one is DOING tHAT though.
  • George on Matthew 10:35
