Bible Commentary for Matthew 19:15

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 19:15

19:13 That he should lay his hands on them - This was a rite which was very early used, in praying for a blessing on young persons. See #Gen 48:14|,20. The disciples rebuked them - That is, them that brought them: probably thinking such an employ beneath the dignity of their Master. #Mark 10:13|; Luke 18:15.

19:14 Of such is the kingdom of heaven - Little children, either in a natural or spiritual sense, have a right to enter into my kingdom. #Mt 18:3|.

19:16 And behold one came - Many of the poor had followed him from the beginning. One rich man came at last. #Mark 10:17|; Luke 18:18.

19:17 Why callest thou me good - Whom thou supposest to be only a man. There is none good - Supremely, originally, essentially, but God. If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments - From a principle of loving faith. Believe, and thence love and obey. And this undoubtedly is the way to eternal life. Our Lord therefore does not answer ironically, which had been utterly beneath his character, but gives a plain, direct, serious answer to a serious question.
