People's Bible Notes for Matthew 4:25


Mt 4:25 Great multitudes of people from Galilee. The fame of his teaching and miracles cause great multitudes to gather from all Palestine. Decapolis. A district containing ten cities east of the Jordan and the Sea of Galilee. Notice, in the ministry of Jesus, (1) He was "active"; (2) He went "where people were"; (3) He went where the "busiest people were"--fisherman, those at work, Simon and Andrew--those preparing to work, James and John; (4) He went where "worshiping people" were; (5) He went where "needy people" were.

    JOHN 15:19 if you were of the world the world would love his own but because you are not of the world but I have chosen you out of this world therefore the world hateth you --15:20-- remember the word that I said unto you --- the servant is not greater than his LORD --- if they have persecuted ME they will also persecute you if they have kept MY saying they will keep yours also

    PHILIPPIANS 1:29 for unto you it is given in the behalf --- of CHRIST --- not only to believe on HIM but also to suffer for HIS sake MATTHEW 5:12 blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake --- for theirs is the kingdom of heaven

    Randy; You should first actually read the Scriptures all the way through; and not just once or twice! Jesus said, "WHEN YOU FAST..." (Matthew 5) and again concerning those who are strongly bound by Satan in any kind of torment or affliction: "THIS KIND GOES NOT OUT EXCEPT BY PRAYER AND FASTING." I have to wonder how someone dares approach the Holy Scriptures with the idea of making his own ideas!
  • Randy
    Jesus did the fasting so we dont fast anymore .... I wonder why christians mimic the things Jesus did ... did he not say... i become poor so we become rich ... he become sickness so we become healthy.... jesus have done all those things for us so we dont have to suffer the way he sufferde... all we have to do is rely and put our faith on the finished work of Jesus.... Eph. 2:8-9

    Ben. The same bible says all authority-government are ordain of God. That we ought to honor them because they are set up for His purpose
  • Norita Priester
    I Matthew chapter 4 it does not state how many days Jesus was tempted by the Devil. So He could have been tempted 3 times on the same day. Just because He fasted 40 days and 40 nights does not mean He was tempted for 3 days. So to think that he was is incorrect.
