People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:11


Mt 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. As Augustine says: ``They came looking for mercy when it was time for judgment.'' Lu 13:25 also teaches that the doors finally will be shut. The shutting of the doors teaches that the day of salvation may pass by.

Discussion for Matthew 25:11

  • Faithfull for verse 11
    Matthew 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins (who were no virgins at all), saying, Lord, Lord, open to us
  • George F. Kumpf III for verse 11
    All the 10 were Virgins [saved] 10 is the number of completion [the entire church], all had oil in their lamps [notice that in all translations except KJV it says "our lamps are GOING out" meaning they had oil [the Holy Spirit]. The "going out" pictures those believers who were quenching the flame/Holy Spirit. This parable has nothing to do with Salvation but rewards because you cannot go and buy salvation.
