People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:19


Mt 11:19 The Son of man came eating. Like other men. He was at the wedding feast of Cana (Joh 2:2); at Matthew's feast, (Mt 9:10), etc. A winebibber. There was nothing singular about his social habits. Like all the people, he drank the light, harmless wine of Palestine, either free from, or with a very slight percentage of, alcohol. Our modern wines are very different. A friend of tax collectors and sinners. See notes on Mt 9:12,13. Wisdom is justified of her children. Those who are wise will approve both the course of John and his Lord.
