That Good Part Shall Not Be Taken Away

Postby Spiritblade Disciple » Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:03 pm

    Luke 10:38‭-‬42 King James Version 20171010
      Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard His word.

      But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, "Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me."

      And Jesus answered and said unto her
      , "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

Rev. Dr. Finis Jennings Dake wrote:a [certain village] Bethany (Jn. 11:1; 12:1-3). Note the "certain" persons and things of this chapter (Lk. 10:25,31-33,38). The word is used by Luke in his two books (Luke and Acts) 101 Times, or more than all the other writers of the entire Bible who use it 95 times. It is found only 26 times in the other gospels and only 9 times in all the epistles.

b [Martha received him into her house] Martha is generally pictured as being too bothered about serving to hear Christ, but she had her good points such as:
    1. She received Jesus (Lk. 10:38).
    2. She served Jesus (Lk. 10:40; Jn. 12:2).
    3. She was the first to go to Him when in need (Jn. 11:20,30).
    4. She had faith in Him (Jn. 11:21-22).
    5. She believed in physical resurrection and eternal life (Jn. 11:23-27).
    6. She confessed Jesus to be the Christ and God's Son (Jn. 11:27).
    7. She carried Christ's message to Mary (Jn. 11:28).

Notes For Verse 40
a [cumbered about much serving] Distracted, drawn different ways, overcharged with care (Lk. 10:42; Lk. 21:34). He did not rebuke her serving, but her excessive care in service.

b [dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone?] Question 65. Next, Lk. 11:5.

Notes For Verse 41
a [careful and troubled about many things] Anxious and agitated (Mt. 6:25).

Notes For Verse 42
a [one thing is needful] Not "one dish," but the more needful thing that Mary had chosen -- to hear the Word of God (Lk. 10:42).

b [Mary hath chosen that good part] Mary also had good points:
    1. She sat at Jesus' feet (Lk. 10:39).
    2. She heard His word (Lk. 10:39).
    3. She put first things first (Lk. 10:42).
    4. She anointed Jesus (Jn. 11:2; 12:3).
    5. She had faith in Him (Jn. 11:32)
    6. She was one of nine persons to fall down before Jesus (Jn. 11:32).
