People's Bible Notes for Matthew 23:36


Mt 23:36 All these things shall come upon this generation. As the Amorites were spared until "their iniquity was full" (Ge 15:16), so the iniquity of Israel was allowed to accumulate from age to age, till in that generation it came to the full, and the collected vengeance of justice broke at once upon it. So it is often in the destruction of a nation. The French Revolution of 1793 is another example.

Discussion for Matthew 23

  • A disciple
    "..but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not...But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." In the Sermon on the Mount, all of our character and conduct both toward God and men is supposed to be a reflection of our Father, that men may see!
  • A disciple
    BSP; That is such a profound statement! Hypocrisy is "stage-playing," giving an outward appearance intended to conceal one's true motives, nature, or actions. That then is become a false and spurious "religion" based on deceit and fraud, driven by pride, envy and selfishness. Our religion is as David describes in the 5th Psalm; of setting in order before Him, and allowing no place for the devil.
  • BSP
    Verses 25 and 26- the Pharisees were only focused on their outward appearance. We want to make sure that we are clean inside and out.
  • Joseph Mosley
    When Jesus said for us" call no man father save your father witch is in heaven. He was talking about religious father like Catholics call there priests father. He also said that we should not refer to religious leaders as rabbi because it means teacher and we only have one teacher and that is God.
  • Ren
    @Pearl when I was young we called ours dad not father. That was not allowed at our house. We were told you have only one Father and he is the one above.
  • A disciple
    Pearl; Honoring our father and mother is one of the Ten Commandments. Jesus condemned the hypocrites for teaching that by one's keep of religious observance he would be exempt from honoring his parents. I believe that Jesus is here referring to Titles, as if any man could be our Supreme Leader, or Master over the other's life and faith; for only our Father in heaven and Christ have those roles.
