People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:13


Mt 11:13 The prophets and the law prophesied until John. For the meaning we must turn to Luke, where the same words occur with the addition, "since that time the kingdom of God is preached" (Lu 16:16). Then first began the announcement that John was the way-preparer, the forerunner of the King, that the kingdom was at hand, that the old dispensation was about to close.

    V11, John the Baptist was less than Jesus. John was shown how to cleanse sin, he had Holy Spirit but not all the powers of God. He was baptized, forgiven of sin. It is possible that he harbored negative thoughts towards people that refused baptism and true Gospel.Thoughts of frustration and weakness of his own power to help sinners is short of perfection. Jesus is perfect, his kingdom is perfect.

    "Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." Does this suggest that we can be the least in our Christianity? or rather, that the littlest one among those born from above...? For with these things the Lord rebukes those most blessed, but who repented not.

    The three Abrahamic Religions idea or slogan, is false! Abraham was called out from Ur of the Chaldees, to sever him from the heathen cult of Nimrod worship/Islam. Israel is for now not right with the Lord their God, denying and persecuting the Name of the only begotten Son of God; so God hides from them. Those who are Believers in Jesus Christ, are walking in the Spirit and the faith of Abraham.
