People's Bible Notes for Matthew 15:21


Mt 15:21 Jesus . . . departed into the coasts. Compare Mr 7:24-30. Tyre and Sidon. Tyre and Sidon were the two principal cities of Phoenicia, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Tyre was about twenty miles south of Sidon, and about one hundred miles in a straight line northwest of Jerusalem. In the days of David and Solomon, Tyre was the leading seaport of the world. It was afterwards taken by the Babylonians, the Persians, and Alexander, but up to the time of Christ it remained a great commercial city. Since then its harbor has been filled with sand, and there remains only a wretched shadow of its former greatness. Both were Gentile cities in a Gentile country. That is the only instance in the Lord's ministry when he went beyond the bounds of Palestine.

    People often misinterpret verses 1-20 by saying Yeshua allowed the consumption of pork, shellfish and other unclean animals. Yeshua rebuked the Pharisees only for their man made law (tradition) of washing hands which is not found anywhere in the law of Moses.

    13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

    let the righteous smite me it SHALL BE A KINDNESS let him reprove me its shall be an excellent oil. You want the brethren to rebuke or do you want chastening from the lord which can lead to sin unto death personally I want to be rebuked if its with scripture not with your philosophy

    What we forget as a bible believer is when we rebuke(not scorn which is different) its because we love that person not hate. Heres a verse most kjv bible believers avoid. Thous shalt not HATE THY BROTHER Thou shalt in any wise REBUKE thy neighbor suffer not sin upon him. If you love the brethren you rebuke them you obey God you rebuke them you dont they will get chastened along with you!

    "And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?" It is no secret to anyone who reads the Bible that there are certain kinds of men who will be offended at the directness of the Lord's speech; especially when it exposes sin and hypocrisy. For the men who were chosen to be the Lord's anointed Sent Ones, the rebuke is accepted as a shaming, in order to push them to grow up and be better men.
