"Matthew"/Jesus was alluding to this passage of Torah: ESV Exodus 22:29 You shall not delay to offer from the fullness of your harvest and from the outflow of ...

I have always felt that what this passage meant was not to waste your wisdom on fools, lest they turn and trample you under foot. I find this fits the ignorance that surrounds people on a daily basis and punishes us for wasting our gifts on those who do not have the capacity to understand.

Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? -Luke 3:7 (NKJV) Luke 3:7 says the multitude came out to be baptized by John.

Maybe Jesus was allowing the disciples to see what it felt like to be "passed" by. After all...

Jesus made very clear just a few verses earlier (Matt 5: 17 to 19) that he wasn't about to over-turn the Law. Therefore his answer must be understood in this context. So while divorce is undesirable, as Jesus made quite clear (Matt 19: 8), it still remained a valid option when a marriage broke down. The "exception clause" is entirely misunderstood. That ...

In Koine Greek the same word is used to refer to any woman and also specifically to a wife. Strong's shows this: G1135 γυνή gunē goo-nay' Probably from the base of G1096; a woman; specifically a wife: - wife, woman. Total KJV occurrences: 221 So it is left to context to indicate whether the referent is "any woman" or "specifically a wife". I ...

Jesus is not giving the disciples "the Spirit" because "spirit" is a bogus concept. "Spirit" is just a synonym for "breath". He is giving them holy breath. Ever since Genesis 2:7 the idea of God filling people with his own breath has permeated the scriptures. Paul calls this "the principle of the breath of life": Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit ...

Answer: Yes, it is explicitly mentioned that Jesus loved someone. In John 13:23, it is written, Now there was one of his disciples reclining on Jesus' bosom, whom Jesus loved. ἦν δέ ἀνακείμενος εἷς τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ Ἰησοῦς TR, 1550 This particular disciple is often referred to as "the beloved disciple." However, ...
