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.
