Bible Commentary for Matthew 19:6

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 19:6


19:4 He said, Have ye not read - So instead of contradicting him, our Lord confutes them by the very words of Moses. He who made them, made them male and female from the beginning - At least from the beginning of the Mosaic creation. And where do we read of any other? Does it not follow, that God's making Eve was part of his original design, and not a consequence of Adam's beginning to fall? By making them one man and one woman, he condemned polygamy: by making them one flesh, he condemned divorce.

19:5 And said - By the mouth of Adam, who uttered the words. #Gen 2:24|.

19:7 Why did Moses command - Christ replies, Moses permitted (not commanded) it, because of the hardness of your hearts - Because neither your fathers nor you could bear the more excellent way. #Deut 24:1 Matt 5:31|; Mark 10:2; Luke 16:18.
