Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 11:27


11:27 All things are delivered to me - Our Lord, here addressing himself to his disciples, shows why men, wise in other things, do not know this: namely, because none can know it by natural reason: none but those to whom he revealeth it.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:27


Mt 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father. The Lord speaks, in part, in anticipation. It was the divine purpose, in sending the Son, to deliver "all things", the gospel, salvation, judgment, the rule of heaven and earth, to him. Neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son. He only is in the secret of the Divine counsels. And [he] to whomever the Son will reveal [him]. Christ is the revelation of God to man. "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (Joh 14:9). Those who "know" Christ by humble obedience and docility learn to know the Father also.

    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.
  • A disciple
    "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.
  • Insight777
    There are 3 main religions today that believe in Abraham and the promise of the kingdom of God for their followers. These religions differ in doctrine so they oppose each other. Violent believers in their God of Abraham fight the others trying to take the kingdom of God by force. The door to the kingdom is Jesus, the Son of God. The violent do not believe Jesus is Savior so they are not saved.
