People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:38


Mt 26:38 My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death. The weight of woe was literally crushing out the Savior's life. Tarry ye here, and watch with me. He had wished his chosen disciples to be near him in his woe; and yet, as it advanced, he felt that he must retire even from them, and be alone with himself and his Father.

    "Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her." While sitting among the true disciples, and beholding how the righteous and wise really love the Lord; what liars and hypocrites the hater's of the Lord are, with their self righteous indignation! But God honors the poor in spirit!

    Gen.1:26,Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness. Father, Son, Holy Ghost, Christ's very own words.

    Knowing what I know now about God's word, the KJV Bible - that it IS God-breathed, inviable, and not the ideas of man about what and who he thinks God is: I would NEVER say there was a 'mistake' in it, of spelling or what is said. I have for myself, proven the inerrancy of God's Word. It all, O.T. and N.T., works together as ONE story - just as God is one, not three.
