People's Bible Notes for Matthew 21:40


Mt 21:40 When the lord therefore . . . cometh, what will he do? This question is addressed to the Jews, who seem to have been so carried away by the vivid description that they answered without seeing that they pronounced their own sentence. See Mt 21:41.

    V16, interesting way Jesus expressed that the praise he was receiving was taught from the Priests. The people in the temple were raised to believe the Son of David would be their Christ. The miracles Jesus preformed were because he is the Son of God, not David. That does not mean the people were correct that Christ is from David but they were correct in seeing Jesus is Christ. Priests want control

    I have always wondered why Jesus did what he did to the fig tree in Verse 19. I think I saw the answer today in verses 41 and 43. I think it he was illustrating the warning to the Chief Priests, Scribes and others who were exercising their religion to be seen of men and not to be fruitful to God.

    Jesus was angry over pagan rituals that are lies. Jesus teaches water baptism removes sin and these priests deny that. They preach death removes sin and it does not. Yes, Jesus was angry over the money because the money is the reason this false practice was started. It had nothing to do with removal of sin, it was extortion in the name of God so the priests can gain wealth. Fear made people comply

    Dear God, you know the requests of my heart as I pray to you. I am not asking for much, just to help my family. I do believe as I pray, and I know I shall receive, in the mighty name of Jesus. Thank you, Heavenly Father, and please bless everyone. Thank you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen.
