Bible Commentary for Matthew 25:33

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 25:33


25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him - With what majesty and grandeur does our Lord here speak of himself Giving us one of the noblest instances of the true sublime. Indeed not many descriptions in the sacred writings themselves seem to equal this. Methinks we can hardly read it without imagining ourselves before the awful tribunal it describes.

25:34 Inherit the kingdom - Purchased by my blood, for all who have believed in me with the faith which wrought by love. Prepared for you - On purpose for you. May it not be probably inferred from hence, that man was not created merely to fill up the places of the fallen angels?

25:35 I was hungry, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink - All these works of outward mercy suppose faith and love, and must needs he accompanied with works of spiritual mercy. But works of this kind the Judge could not mention in the same manner. He could not say, I was in error, and ye recalled me to the truth; I was in sin, and ye brought me to repentance. In prison - Prisoners need to be visited above all others, as they are commonly solitary and forsaken by the rest of the world.

Discussion for Matthew 25:33

  • Paul mani on Matthew 25:33
    Matthew 25:33 has been paraphrased as "The year of realigning for reassigning" (a church catchword for 2013). I strongly feel that there is a major conflict between judgment and grace in this theme. Perhaps, also taken out of context. I hope you will help me understand better. Am I right or wrong in my assessment of Matthew 25:33. Regards, Paul Mani.
