Discussion for Matthew 21

    V.44 - we are to 'fall' on Jesus and be broken; we are to spiritually fall at an altar of repentance and our will be broken so His will (spirit) can live in us.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus was winding down His mission on earth and He gave the people some tough lessons we today should learn. Two of these are: never desecrate the House of God and we should not "fall on this stone and be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder" We should lean on Christ and have broken and contrite heart. Failing which hell beckons.

    Noel - This comes from O.T. prophecy; Jesus is reminding the people of it; Ps. 118:22; Acts 4:10-11; the one in Acts will clear it up for you.

    Please could you explain in simple terms what verse 42,43 and 44
  • Irene123
    Jesus increases our faith - as we USE it. We all (even when we were sinners) had faith - that the car would start, that the coffee pot would work, that our shoe laces wouldn't break ...............; this is the 'grain' of faith Jesus says will grow into a TREE that the birds can roost in - IF we will use it; faith as a grain of a mustard seed.

    Mark 11:10 "Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest." Yeh-Ho-Shannah; I AM [is] Salvation; the people knew that this Jesus is the Son of God, the Anointed Saviour of the world. They knew also that His appearance means the restoration of the kingdom of David over Israel. What they didn't see, was the cross first! The truth cannot fail.
