Discussion for Matthew 17

    John, what don't you understand about the fish and the coin? Nothing about the fish dying and selling the dead fish for a coin. Jesus simply says open the fish mouth, take out the,band pay the tax. Pretty clear cut .
  • Jeff Berry
    Unlike the next chapter where Jesus uses an hyperbole to teach a truth (...if thy hand...offend thee) here He is speaking metaphorically. "If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed..." Do you have any "mountains" in your life? I do. And today I "say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place"!
  • A disciple
    The disciples were first called Christians because they were of Christ, and were like Christ. They took every word He said as the absolute Rule for every aspect of their character and conduct. In this chapter we can much from what Jesus said and did. 1. There is an appropriate time for telling others the vision you have received. 2. Belief and holy trustworthiness go together. 3. Honor Authority.

    Vay; Thank you for speaking up! Nice to hear from you! YES! It is like the Sermon on the Mount, TOTALLY; and the Parable of the Sower, and the Wheat and the Tares, and the Wise and Foolish Virgins, and the Good and Faithful House Managers next to the One who went and hid his Lord's money. What's wrong with hypocrisy? Stage-playing, giving a misleading appearance meant to conceal one's true nature!
  • Vay
    You're right about the "whole point"! It's like the Sermon on the Mount, isn't it, where we're to give our cloaks if our coat is taken (stolen), go the extra mile, forgive and love and pray for our enemies. Examine and find ourselves faultless before making our self-offering! When we don't obey these Christian lessons from Jesus' Mountain-top Sermon, we're still taught them but through trials.
