Bible Commentary for Matthew 12:47

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 12:47


12:45 Seven other spirits - That is, a great many; a certain number being put for an uncertain: More wicked than himself - Whence it appears, that there are degrees of wickedness among the devils themselves: They enter in and dwell - For ever in him who is forsaken of God. So shall it be to this wicked generation - Yea, and to apostates in all ages.

12:46 His brethren - His kinsmen: they were the sons of Mary, the wife of Cleopas, or Alpheus, his mother's sister; and came now seeking to take him, as one beside himself, #Mark 3:21|. #Mark 3:31|; Luke 8:19.

12:48 And he answering, said - Our Lord's knowing why they came, sufficiently justifies his seeming disregard of them.

12:49-50 See the highest severity, and the highest goodness! Severity to his natural, goodness to his spiritual relations! In a manner disclaiming the former, who opposed the will of his heavenly Father, and owning the latter, who obeyed it.
