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.

Discussion for Matthew 11

    Lou; we should never confess defeat when it comes to our salvation, and the things that the Scriptures PLAINLY tell us we have in Christ! Saved from our sins, complete deliverance and freedom and all provided for pertaining to life and piety! The enemy is a liar, and goes about seeking whom he may devour with his lies! Don't listen to him! Believe the Word!
  • Lou
    Penni, we all fall short, because we judge, our nature is sinful. We must strive to be good, and..we will fail, we will never measure up, but we should try anyway. No action on our part, no changes we make, no sacrifice is worthy..we are fallen. Only through Christ, and not through our own doing are we saved, we will still fail, when we believe, but the power of Jesus (God) is above all things.
  • Penni Carter
    Jesus is so clear about our walk in trusting him, but He is also very clear in His stance regarding judgment. We have it easier because Jesus came to the earth in the form of a man to show us how to live. Is it really any wonder that our judgment will be much harder considering we had the truth as a living example. I pray for mercy and grace for our souls. Our world needs to repent.
