People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:4


Mt 11:4 Jesus answered and said. Luke states that at "that same hour he cured many of their infirmities" (Lu 7:21). After permitting the messengers to see his work, he pointed to it as his answer (Lu 7:22). Go and show John again those things which ye hear and see. To John's question Jesus gives no direct reply. There is something severe in the whole of our Lord's demeanor and language, as if reproving this shaking of John's higher faith in God.

Discussion for Matthew 11:4

  • SharonDalene on Matthew 11:4
    Often in the hour of severe trial, as John the Baptist was facing in his beheading, we are comforted by the truths of Christ that we already know. Christ sent no new message of comfort to John, nor did He make a personal appearance in the prison. He sent a message, "Go tell John AGAIN... " Comfort is awaiting us in the scriptures. Often, we simply need to review what we already know, this time letting the words of Christ sink deeper into our heart and soul.
