A Greater Than

Postby Spiritblade Disciple » Sun Oct 15, 2017 9:55 pm

    Luke 11:29-32 King James Version [20171016]
      And when the people were gathered thick together, He began to say, "This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the Prophet. For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of Man be to this generation.

      "The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

      "The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here."

Rev. Dr. Finis Jennings Dake wrote:Notes For Verse 29
a [This is an evil generation: they seek a sign ...] The 24th New Testament prophecy in Luke (Lk. 11:29-32, Lk. 11:29-30 are fulfilled; Lk. 11:31-32 will be fulfilled at the judgment of Rev. 20:11-15). Next, Lk. 11:49.

b [evil generation] Evil, because instead of hearing the Word of God and keeping it, they "seek a sign" which they do not need; and though it were shown to their entire satisfaction, they would still disobey truth. These Jews plainly demonstrate that he who from prejudice and love of sin rejects truth addressed to the understanding, would continue to reject evidence addressed to the senses. If he will not believe the Bible to be the Word of God, he will not believe a miracle to be the work of God. He would be like the Jews and attribute such works to Satan.

Notes For Verse 30
a [Jonas] Jonah (Mt. 12:40-42; Lk. 2:34).

b [this generation] See note, Mt. 11:16.

Notes For Verse 31
a [queen of the south] 1Ki. 10:1; 2Chr. 9:1; Mt. 12:42.

Notes For Verse 32
a [of Nineve] Nineveh (Jonah 3:5-10; Mt. 12:41).
