People's Bible Notes for Matthew 15:39


Mt 15:39 Came into the coasts of Magdala. He took the boat to escape the multitude. Magdala was on the western shore of the lake, three miles north of Tiberias. The Revised Version says "Magadan", supposed to have been a village near Magdala. Mark says "Dalmanutha" (Mr 8:10). The meaning is that he came into the vicinity of all three of these places, which were near each other.

Discussion for Matthew 15

    "Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind." In saying this, Jesus has revealed that each and every one of us is accountable first to God; and no amount of obstinate determination to follow ANY form or methodology may take the preeminence over His view of us; notwithstanding howsoever strongly one might protest!

    Andrea: His Word says: every Creature of God is Good and nothing to be refused,if it be received with Thanksgiving:For it is Sanctified by The Word of God and Prayer. 1Timothy 4:4-6./ Oysters, clams,muscles, shrimp, lobster,any seafood. Cows, pigs, rabbits, muskrat, raccoon, squirrels, whatsoever,but always give Thanks for what you have
  • A disciple
    Andrea; If I may add here, the teaching of the Law in the eating of things designated clean and unclean; is in reference to our walk. "But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common." Acts 10 (esp. v28) confirms, The Kingdom of God IS NOT Meat and Drink..

    To Bruce.
    Are you saying pork shrimp, lobsters etc are allowed as long as God's word is prayed over them?
  • Bruce
    Chad: We who are Born-again can eat what-so-ever:1Timothy 4:4-5: every creature of God is good, nothing to be refused, if it be received with Thanksgiving: For it is Sanctified by The Word of God and Prayer.
  • Chad I
    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.
