People's Bible Notes for Matthew 22:6


Mt 22:6 And the remnant took his servants and . . . slew [them]. The indifference of the previous class was proof of disloyalty, but the second class resort to open rebellion. This was fulfilled in the persecutions of the apostles and early church stirred by the Jews. See Ac 4:3 5:18,40 7:58 8:3 12:3 14:5,19 16:23 17:5 21:30 23:2; also the Epistles here and there.
